Fiat COO: Fiat 124 Spider Will Be Offered in Abarth Form

A few weeks ago, we brought you the sad news that Mazda has no need for a “Speed” version of its new Miata. (Cue sad horns). All is not lost, however: If what Fiat COO Alfredo Altavilla said to <i>AutoExpress</i> is true, the Italian version, the Fiat 124 Spider expected to make its debut later this year …

Koenigsegg One:1 Beats Its Own Record at Spa-Francorchamps

Koenigsegg’s outrageous One:1 just keeps running wild on unsuspecting pavement. First, we watched it blast to 220 mph at a supercar meetup in England. Then, we saw it tearing up Suzuka Circuit. Then we got to ride shotgun as it thundered up the hill at Goodwood. And then we watched as it …

2017 Mercedes-Benz C-class Coupe

Tauter and sportier than before.<p>The rear of the prototype vehicle we were riding in was still disguised, but that's not the reason it received an unusual amount of attention from bystanders—it was the car’s proportions. Indeed, the new generation of Mercedes-Benz’s two-door C-class, which will make …

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-class

Luxury-crossover buyers should be excited.<p>A new crossover gets us nearly as excited as the prospect of binge-watching C-SPAN. Or maybe binge-watching people who are binge-watching C-SPAN.

2016 McLaren 675LT

Slightly more exciting than aerial combat.<p>This is a great time to be a billionaire gearhead, no question. Manufacturers are practically tripping over each other to bring their adjective-stretching hypercars to market, complete with their four-figure power outputs and seven-digit prices. This is a …

Photos And Details Of Facelifted Porsche 911 Emerge

Over the past few years, we have reported several times that Porsche would kill the naturally aspirated flat-six in the 911 as of this fall.

Perhaps Lamborghini Will Produce a Urus Superveloce

We like to imagine Stephan Winkelmann waking up in the morning in his impeccably tailored pajamas, sitting up thoughtfully in bed, sipping an espresso handed to him by a lovely <i>signora</i>, and thinking to himself, “What new Lamborghinis can I think up today and use to play it coy with those …

A One-Off Ferrari With Incredible History May Pull $16 Million at Auction

A million dollars for a car is insane. Yet, we continuously see classic Ferraris pull in more than 5 to 10 times that at auction, and this one-off 1962 Ferrari 250GT SWB Berlinetta Speciale is expected to far exceed that number.<p>In 1912, Giovanni Bertone founded Carrozzeria Bertone in Turin, Italy. …

2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe

Black magic motion.<p>When we tested the S63 version of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-class coupe, we called it “over the top in every way imaginable.” So let us now imagine that one wearing a price tag swollen by 44 percent with 50 percent more cylinders under the hood must be beyond over the top, …

2016 Lexus IS200t: The Entry-Level Lexus IS Gets a Much-Needed Power Boost

After two years of selling the current-generation IS sedan with a strange, underpowered 2.5-liter V-6 engine (in addition to the optional and way better 3.5-liter V-6), Lexus has wised up and replaced the base engine with a new, turbocharged four-cylinder from the NX200t. The newly created IS200t …

More Hellcats! Dodge Is More Than Doubling Output for 2016

Dodge SRT Hellcat demand has easily outstripped supply—this is something the company intended. It was also blatantly obvious that a lot of dealers gouged the hell out of customers looking to get one of the few Hellcats around—something that Dodge isn’t terribly fond of. In an attempt to limit …

2017 Audi A4: The Early Returns Are Positive

Beneath familiar styling lies a highly evolved driving experience.<p>When the latest Audi Q7 broke cover last winter, the SUV’s styling proved to be a very hot topic for discussion, and that’s happened again with another new Audi. This time, it’s the A4’s turn, as the all-new 2017 iteration that …

2016 Ferrari 488 Spider: The 488GTB Gains a Folding Roof

The least-interesting thing we can say about Ferrari’s new 488 Spider is that it’s little more than a 488GTB with a retractable hardtop. Nor is the alfresco Ferrari much of a surprise—we’d be more shocked if Ferrari had announced the 488GTB would stay a fixed-roof coupe only. Everything else about …

Defender of the Faith: Driving Every Generation of Land Rover Defender

Saying goodbye to the classic Land Rover by driving every iteration in one day.<p>Nothing is more British than the Land Rover Defender.

And, no, we aren't talking about the American version of Top Gear.<p>From the August 2015 issue<p>Car television went plotz a few months ago with the sudden meltdown of Britain’s Top Gear.

Audi Swaps Matrix LED Lights for Matrix OLED Lights, U.S. Likely to Be Excluded from Awesome Tech

Note how the Audi’s Matrix headlights keep the high beams on full burn without burning the oncoming driver’s eyes.<p>According to Audi, OLEDs are basically flat, as opposed to regular LEDs, which the automaker refers to as “point lighting.” Being thin and highly formable, OLEDs thus take up less space …

Ranger X: The Chinese Tesla Model S Copy That's "YOUR.BIG.TOY!"

Chinese companies have knocked off Western vehicles for years, but the tide of such clones has slowed as the Chinese auto industry has transitioned from its infancy to a more boisterous toddlerhood.

2016 Honda Pilot AWD

Lighter, quicker, minivanier.<p>From the August 2015 issue<p>The arrival of a second child in a couple’s life often means many things: the demise of romance, the start of sibling rivalry, and the purchase of a three-row SUV.

Nissan Launches Online Configurator for 2016 Maxima

Peugeot Creates the Frenchest (Read: Weirdest) Food Truck

If food trucks are about as hipster as one can get, what about a food truck as reimagined through a <i>French</i> lens? Thank the stars for Peugeot, then, as we now know how the French would fry up such a vehicle. In this case, it unfolds like a Micro Machines case and is emblazoned with”Le Bistrot du …

Audi Confirms Ultra-Über-Hot RS3 for the U.S.!

Audi of America CEO Scott Keogh has finally confirmed what we’ve long suspected: The 367-hp RS3 is coming to the U.S. We’ve been optimistic about that car’s chances for the States since way back in 2012, when we had the above RS3 sedan rendering commissioned. As Keogh points out in comments to</i> …
