2018 Toyota C-HR XLE Premium R-Code Design – Video Road Test Review w/ Mega Gallery!

  Don’t get too bogged down in what type of vehicle C-HR is before you start to love it.  SUV Compact?  City Style Hatchback? It is a racy five-door hatchback with off-road-ish looks and playful road handling. Exclusively front-drive and sliding in right above the Corolla in fun-to-drive and standout style. Pricing matches that four-door but there are many differences under the skin. This C-HR for example runs a slightly tighter wheelbase and overall length.  And a slightly wider stance with its bubble hardtop accentuating the racy roofline and concept-like body shapes on both ends. But really, all the style in the world is not why we loved driving the C-HR in real-world traffic.  On paper, its stats do not shimmer. But around long on-ramps and darting through traffic?  C-HR is a playful delight. We have a video drive review and a few dozen photos to share here. Enjoy! Performance …

OP_ED: KIA Taking Major Risks with STINGER Launch Rollout

The 2018 Kia Stinger is amazingly cool in the flesh.  Low, wide and longer than any KIA you’ve ever imagined.  It is shaping up to be a real Audi A7 rival, but with pricing that starts in the low 30s for the cheapest models.  Closer in pricing are the Audi A5 Sportback and BMW 4 series GranCoupe — both of which kick off their pricing near where the Stinger tops out around $50k. We’re all for this new sporty KIA.  The initial drive reviews are coming back amazingly positive, and there is real buzz as the first cars arrive at dealerships this week.  The machine is officially the fastest KIA ever: 4.8s to 60 and a potent 167MPH top speed too.  Right from the factory, in rear or AWD. Pre-production Stinger GT AWD But is KIA taking some risks with this, one of their first high-performance vehicle launches?  Allow me …

2018 Bugatti CHIRON Headlines RM Sotheby’s 2017 New York Icons [33 Photos]

Imagine having a Chiron. Not in 18 months.  Or even three months. Now.  This week! That is how the new owner of this never-register Bugatti Chiron will feel in NYC at Rm Sotheby’s 2017 Icons auction. No word on who this original orderer was.  The Chiron’s exact color shades are not shared, but it is black on black with red accents.  The red stripe wraps the C-shaped door intake and then sweeps around the nose. The vehicle comes with an extra rear bumper in crate that meets US road specs.  Fitted is the slightly slimmer world-export-spec rear bumper. Pricing is conservatively ballparked around $4 million.  This is about a mil up on its original sticker, so a tidy profit indeed. But in fact, we see this bidding war going past six million pretty easily. The cars for the RM Icons auction are vieweable by the public at Sotheby’s New York …

2018 Aston Martin VANTAGE – Fantasy Colorizer in 50 Candy Paints

One of 2018’s sexiest new cars has landed.  The new Aston Martin Vantage takes a quantum explosion into the future.  V8TT, tight and lithe chassis, and sparing design that relishes drama.  Here is a shark on the autobahn.  An MX-5 GT500 some might joke. But here this Vantage is so, so painfully beautiful that it makes the 911 seem trad and old.  Onward to the future of Aston. The reveal Vantage wears a very familiar Lime Essence paintwork that does what I always do.  Try to find that elusive perfect yellow-green. As Vantage strides into the future, we take a stab at one of our past’s greatest hits.  The COLORIZER! This time we have an obsene amount of delights.  The base template is the four-square tile image.  It then breaks into units for scrolling GIFs. What these all prove is that Vantage design is a winner.  In every color imaginable. …
