Dream Garage – Superformance LOLA MkIII Can-Am Spyders

2014 Superformance LOLA MkII Can-Am Spyder at Olthoff Racing12

Lola racecars are extremely special for their value-for-money today, racing pedigree, and also their incredibly timeless grace and beauty. This was a racing team directly formed in the late 1950s with one goal: build a car from scratch to win LeMans. The resulting semi-monocoque chassis design – now known as a unibody – was revolutionary at the time of frame-based racers from nearly every other racing company and nearly every single road car. A semi-monocoque? Oh yes. The other part is also pretty advanced for the time: a steel spaceframe for the engine and rear suspension cradle. In fact, the Lola GT Mk 6 formed the basis for the Ford GT40 as well as campaigning across a half-dozen racing series itself. In fact, the Ford GT40 spin-off was originally developed in-house (at Lola) by Ford guys on a one-year contract partnership with Lola.   Stunning, right? Okay: Back to the …

HD First Drive Review – 2015 Audi A3 1.8T Sedan

 The Audi A3 family is pretty massive for 2015 – with the new sedan just the first in the offensive that will include the A3/S3 Cabrio, A3 Sportback and Sportback Hybrid, an S3 sedan and even the Q3 mini SUV. So there is a lot riding on this compact exec’s shoulders – not least a worry that it might be overpriced and under-amazing. But that is not the case in the slightest. What we discovered after flogging Audi’s latest machine around Lake Lanier, Georgia last week is a fun, peppy car with outstanding driving characteristics, very intuitive steering, and a contender for world’s-best-transmission in the S-tronic seven-speed DSG. But most of all, we were thrilled by the A3’s interior design – which fathfully carries Audi’s well-earned cabin reputation and even enhances it with the latest MMI touch controls down below and the slide-up TFT panel in the low-cowl dash shape. …

2015 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ 1/2 Ton 4WD Review

2015 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ 4WD White Diamond Tricoat 73

 suburban evo compressed gif

 

American brand icons do not come much more glorious than Chevy. In the automotive realm, Chevrolet has been a constant throughout the last 100 years.

A powerhouse in the General Motors stable, Chevrolet has seen off dozens of business lines and market segments. Divested in favor of keeping Chevy healthy, GM left the heavy trucks business altogether and dropped half its brand portfolio in the last ten years. Thus, the recent history of the firm has been shaken up more this century than the ten preceding decades.

But the results speak for themselves. Never in my lifetime has Chevy made better vehicles. Cars and trucks to be proud of owning, and models that objectively and subjectively match the quality, style and features of anything else worldwide. True story.

TOPPING THE PAST

The icon of Chevrolet for most people is the truck line. Imagine a world where Chevy could only keep making one car. That is it. Which model would you pick to evolve through year 2100?

Many people would choose the Suburban. The “Chevrolet One Ton Commercial Truck” can do it all.

Who does not have an awesome Chevy Suburban memory? Growing up, we did not have enough kids to need such a brute, but all the coolest families had a series of Chevy’s best throughout my time in the Chicago burbs.

NAILING THE PRESENT

Taking Chevy back to respectability, let alone true competitiveness, has been an enormous challenge. But one the firm has met head-on.

The all-new 2015 Suburban is still a proud crown jewel for all American industry. Totally redesigned with all-new platform, folding third row and massively more comfortable cabin — the Suburban is the best truck it has ever been.

A brief spin in the 2015 LTZ 4WD proves the Sub is still on top of its game. Huge and flexible, strong and capable — yet now also posh and fashionable!?

Another true story.

The LTZ 4WD carries a base price of $65,000 and makes almost no sacrifices versus its GMC Yukon, Denali and Cadillac Escalade siblings.

The Chevy’s appeal versus fancier chums is its brand legacy and lack of pretension. This is a truck for getting it done, not showing it off.

But everyone wants to look good, and this LTZ adds $10k in mostly functional but also fashionable upgrades. $1000 White Diamond Tri-Coat paint is right out of the Escalade parts bin and looks gorgeous, while the charcoal 22-inch wheels for $3000 extra are HOT and totally transformative for the Sub’s style. Cocoa leather is gorgeous in here, while the moonroof is small but nice for bringing light into the front cabin.

Magnetic Ride Control is an LTZ exclusive for Chevy, while the cabin tech and touchscreens are easier to operate than the Escalade’s — yet lacks only a few Caddy features.

The key missing elements no Suburban offers, as far as we can tell, are two:

— power running boards

— the 6.2-liter V8 engine from the Escalade and top Denali models

Will you miss these? Perhaps. We did. But only because we know they exist elsewhere.

DRIVING THE FUTURE

Also missing from the roster of 2015 Suburbans — or their 2016 counterparts in a few months — is the new eight-speed automatic rolling out on the Escalade. If you want to get picky, the Sub also lacks bi-xenon or LED headlamps for low or highbeams.

Detail elements, perhaps, but ones you too might miss when spending $75k on a full-size SUV.

On the road, the Suburban is easier to drive than you would ever expect.

Yet even with MRC shocks, we missed the new Ford Expedition EL Platinum’s fun handling balance on the road. The LTZ Suburban feels powerful without a full cabin or a trailer in back, but is less confident (and less fun) when driven pushed hard than some competitors. Will this matter to you in normal family transport duties? Not really, but good to know.

Until then, we proudly crown the 2015 Suburban LTZ with the crown of the best Chevrolet SUV in a long line of super-stars. The Chevrolet Truck continues to define American engineering, design and industry to this day.

2016 BMW Z4 Adds Sexy Estoril Blue to Three-Model Range From $50k

2016 BMW Z4 M Sport Estoril Blue 38

2016 Z4

The Z4 vs. Boxster battle was won by Porsche decisively in the early 2000s — with the Porsche feeling sportier and more special with only a five-percent price premium.

But as the Z4 retreated from Spartanburg to be made back in Germany, a unique turnabout has taken place. The Boxster is slow and boring in 2015, with its dull and ubiquitous design inspiring not one ounce of excitement.

The Z4’s sales today are a tenth of what they were at the model’s peak — while the design is now fabulously wide, low and eye-catching out in the wild. Trust me: the next Z4 you see will really surprise you with its slinky beauty.2014-02-05_132853

Any Newness?

BMW just added its hottest color to the 2016 Z4: Estoril Blue.

This M Sport exclusive gives any Bimmer a truly special sheen in sunlight, yet darkens nicely into a crisp dark blue at night. It is a stellar shade – especially compared with the humdrum other colors available on the Z4, M4 etc. Austin Yellow Metallic, anyone?

Anyone?

No?

Okay.

Estoril Blue can be specced on the Z4 from July of 2015 worldwide. Three powertrains are offered, with even the slowest sDrive28i delivering a 60-mph sprint in the mid 5’s. The top Z4 sDrive35iS pumps out 335 ponies and shoots off the mark to a 4.9-second sprint.

Seven-speed automatic DCT or a six-speed stick are the transmission options, with an M Adaptive suspension promising better handling when putting power down around corners. Despite ditching the Z3’s semi-trailing-arm rear suspension ages ago, the cab-backward proportions of the Z4 still make it a bit of a tricky handler. [Huh? The rear end is known to step out sharply with any mid-corner bumps.]

As with the rest of the BMW range, standard and M Sport trims are dramatically different from one another. The M Sport is clearly the one for speed freaks – with its more intense lower detailing all around feeling cooler than the breezy matte-silver grille and inserts of the standard model.

Hyper Orange is quite a shocking color option around since 2014 or so — with the contrast-black hardtop offered on all eight shades for $700 extra.

A huge range of interior colors and trim styles are available, and actually look outstanding. Very chic and personalized color and material options — from woven metal to brushed alloy to anthracite/shadow grey to striated woods. Very sexy.

We believe Estoril Blue will be a standard color choice with around a $500 price premium to the standard shades. This is in contrast to a handful of BMW Exclusive colors — which cost an extra $5k at least and can add ~5 weeks to delivery timeframes.

The BMW Z4. Yesterday we explored the Zagato restyles of the 2012 Z4 Roadster and Zagato Coupe – which are not exactly gorgeous and arguably look much worse than even the OEM BMW Z4.

2014 BMW Z4 Roof Animatied GIF

This is a major problem for the Z4 when its new prices, positioning and German assembly are taken into account.

In the 10 years between 2003 and 2013, sales in the U.S. and Canadian markets for the Z4 have logged a calamitous 90-plus percent drop.

The Z4’s sales stats from GoodCar-BadCar paint the picture very clearly.

2014-02-05_132853

We prepared the above chart based on the GoodCar-BadCar data to illustrate the changing tides for the BMW Z4.

?????? ?????? ??????

A few other things popped up as possible causes of the Z4’s near-demise: all of which point to BMW consciously lessening the Z4’s importance versus the real cash-cow SUV models X3 and X5.

 

So what happened to the carefree $35,000 BMW roadster we all remember so fondly?

— Assembly moved from Spartanburg, SC back to Europe with intro of 2002 BMW X5 SAV

— Prices are ridiculously too-high: $49,000 for the Z4 sDrive28i up to $70,000 for the Z4 sDrive35iS M Sport

— Styling is very frumpy from anything but the front angles

So, let us assume this was a conscious move on BMW’s part. Is the Z4 really in Porsche 911 Carrera Convertible leagues, in terms of performance? The Z4 is a bit steeper than most Boxsters in terms of pricing, which will always be a losing battle for BMW.

The value proposition simply does not seem to be valid whatsoever for the Z4 any more. As basic as it is, the more money a car costs ===>>> the more car Americans want for that money.

?????? ?????? ?????? ?????? ??????

The Z4 still wears flyweight dimensions … but brings a hugely compromised cabin and trunk with its latest folding hardtop. Put simply: is this tiny sports car with old-fashioned suspension possibly worth 3X the price of the MX-5 Club?

?????? ?????? ?????? ?????? ??????

The options and trims speak to the Z4’s new halo sportscar status within the BMW range: they are all pretty repulsive and aimed at European or global shoppers.

Example? The super-brown M Sport pack, the Valencia Orange M Sport packs, and many others are a million miles from what sports car shoppers in Valencia California actually want.

White or Estoril Blue with dark black rims and trims? Perhaps.

But this is still a tiny car with a ginormous price for its size and lack of badge kudos versus a Porsche or Lotus.

We spent some time in the configurator – and honestly came out of it more confused than when we started this article! Simply mind-boggling spec prices put paint at a $4000 premium, but make heated seats and even a seven-speed dual-clutch just $450 options.

 

Huh? My thoughts exactly. Since when is fugly, out-of-style orange paint so much more precious than serious performance parts?

The Z4 basically seems like a bit of catalog filler at the moment for BMW, with sales barely cresting 3,000 units total in all of 2013.

The latest car is still quite fresh and distinctive – but the above demerits and the steep pricing make the Z4 a very niche choice.

2014 SEAT Leon Cupra Now Offered in Very Cool ST Wagon

seat leon cupra stUpdated 1.10.2015

The sexy Leon ST wagon is now available in the Cupra trim! This cool dynamic and style upgrade includes the availability of the postent Cupra 280 pack and its huge-boost turbo gasoline engine. Six styling packs are also available on the Leon Cupras — with the Dynamic Grey shown in the press shots an ST Cupra exclusive that is not offered on Leon ST’s with lesser engines.

We also anticipate the Sub8 performance packs to be offered on the ST wagon – these trims commemorate that the Leon Cupra is the quickest front-drive car of all time around the Nurburgring: under eight minutes, as it were….

Lots of Leon Cupra goodies below, but first a turntable showing the mid-range Leon ST FR. Still a sexy machine – but not as fun as the potent Cupra will be.2015 SEAT Leon ST Cupra Dynamic Grey 7 2015 SEAT Leon ST Cupra Dynamic Grey 7 - Copyseat leon st fr

2015 Ford Mustang GT – Custom Colorizer

Originally Published March 2014

Is the Mustang order book open already for first deliveries in late 2014!? That thought passed through my head while already elbow-deep in PhotoShop this morning.

I usually only try to change the color of a car that is:

— out of production (like the McLaren F1)

— or not released in full detail yet (ie Lambo Huracan).

Adding too many colors that are not factory options might make automakers care even less about our little website. It is good to tread a little lightly in that area.

After just one millisecond of Googling — yes the Official 2015 Mustang colors are out — and will be featured in an upcoming article that is distince from this one.

Why? Because we have 64 digitally-rendered 2015 #INAMUSTANG colors on our desktop! And we are itchy to set them free.

2016 Audi TT Wins TopGear Coupe of the Year + LED Lighting Demo

tt 2016

  TopGear has hated the Audi TT for as long as anyone can recall. Sure, this is part of their countercultural appeal, as the UK was one of the TT’s biggest global markets. The car was absolutely everywhere and wore many people out. It represented a “tarted up Golf,” as the guys said so, so many times. So for the new 2016 model-year TT to win the mag’s Coupe of the Year award is quite surprising indeed. Granted, they gave more than a dozen of these awards out in many categories, with heavily subjective and qualitative assessments deciding who won and who lost. Even so, it is a big turn-about and a promising sign for the all-new generation’s dynamics and overall market appeal globally. As far as arrival times and pricing, the US Audi lineup has a 2015 TT still in the range as the prehistoric-looking existing model — so …
