Throughout The Car Industry
Looking for all the minimalist excitement of an Ariel Atom at a discount AND don't fear death? Then have I got the vehicle for you!
People in my profession—and outside it, too, I suppose—have always railed against government “interference” in the production of vehicles. Sure, the seat belt was a good idea, but airbags, “safety” bumpers, and—more recently—the laundry list of electronic nannies like automatic braking and stability control?

When Audi first unveiled the A5 coupe back in 2005, it took pride in creating a vehicle that revolutionized the mid-size coupe segment; then it added newfound levels of performance and flair with the S5 coupe. The 2017 Audi A5 and S5 coupes (first teased by Audi a few weeks ago) bring new levels of technology and refinement to the familiar coupe and serve as the next chapter of the A5's life.

BMW's green-focused i sub-brand is still relatively new, but for the first time in its short life, the brand is changing its core mission and is shifting its attention from electric vehicles to creating the ultimate self-driving machine.

It also points towards a new future where i could become a rolling showcase of the company's driverless vehicle technologies.

B-J's and AA's auctions prove that if you dishonor your Heritage you will pay the price. [Buyers, however, won't even offer half of it.]
While the car you see above looks like every other “Heritage Edition” Ford GT, this one hides a terrible secret: Somebody invested a fortune into cutting its value in half. Yes, you read that right. Someone bought one of the ultra-rare and ultra-desirable Gulf-liveried 2006 Ford GTs and basically destroyed it in the most pathetically-ironic way: They turned it into a “racecar.”

Last year, BMW undertook a bold initiative that was meant to make the Bavarian luxury car company king of the market (while upstaging Audi, and Mercedes Benz).
