ASTON MARTIN Lagonda Officially Reborn For Bespoke 2015 Super Saloon

Lagonda lives! Breaking news with a confirmation from Aston-Martin on the 2015 Bespoke Super Saloon project – which is officially the new Lagonda saloon car. Inspiration for the design is said to tie directly to the 1976 Lagonda saloon below in original and VirtualModels.org’s dragster prototype. Most likely reference points in the bespoke 2015 Lagonda are the D-pillar shape and glasshouse, which is more faithful a revamp than the current Rapide S. A chopped and simplified vertical grille and nose bring the light elements low and part of the front face, versus on the uppermost corner edges. The 2015 Lagonda …

Buick OnStar 4GLTE As Standard Is A Game-Changer for In-Car Mobile Broadband

Spent some time today with the latest Regal and Lacrosse sedans from Buick – a surprising leader in the tech segment of the car business. Standard 4G LTE in all 2015 Buicks (except the Enclave, which makes it for 2016) will make the first three months of owning car car true heaven. That is the length of the trial period of in-car 4GLTE services with Onstar. I say this with a bit of a smirk because the sign-up rate will be amazingly high. The pricing, already-installed access and friendliness of the sign-in for up to seven devices is a miracle …

4.1s 2015 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Leads Refreshed Lineup in USA from November

Porsche revealed the updated 2015 Cayenne model line today – with a variety of style in and tech to go along with the new Cayenne S twin-turbo V6 replacing the current 4.8-liter V8.

2015 Toyota Yaris Adds LED Style and Standard Touchscreen Audio!

Big news for these small-car twins! By the looks and extra content of the 2015 three and five-door Yaris line, Toyota must not be pleased to lose an inch of its compact car dominance to upstarts Chevrolet and Hyundai-Kia! Toyota has owned the small car sales charts for two decades with its Corolla and various other models, but the littlest member of the family has sat out many rounds of updates by competing brands. Chevrolet’s Cruze, Sonic and Spark lines are making waves in the segment, while the Mitsubishi Mirage and Nissan Versa are also play hardball on price. So …

Exclusive Renderings! 2017 LOTUS Evora Clubman, Sedan and Shooting Brake

Here is a fun little set of renderings! What initially started as an idea for a new Elite ‘breadvan’ bloomed into two other variants as well: the long-wheelbase sedan and four-door Clubman! But wait, I hear you saying – isn’t this a mid-engine car? Yes, yes it is. But the Evora is also a 2+2, with the engine itself quite compact and only extending about 8 inches ahead of the rear axle centerline. This makes plenty of room for an extra set of doors and bigger seats. The idea with the extra doors is not for limo-like room in the …

JAGUAR Special Ops F-Type Coupe and XFR-S SportBrake for Team Sky Tour de France Cyclists

Say what you might about all other sports physicality, strength and stamina requirements – but know that none is really as grueling a challenge as the Tour de France. A bike race that whittles its winners down to rail-skinny, crying fools. Emotional, physical and spiritual battering come with every stage of the race. Evidence? There are few other athletes who would keep charging forward when their scrotum has been rubbed raw and blood-red by constant seat pressure/chafing. It makes this first-ever bike under the English Channel seem like a cakewalk. But the Tour de France is not just won by …

LOTUS Esprit, Elan, Elite, and Eterne Have The Vision, But Missing The Investor Millions

Talk about a huge missed opportunity: Lotus’s 2010 Paris business plan and five-pack of concepts might be arriving for sale about now if the world had be different. The cars are so on-trend and stylish four years later that it is hard to really see them in real-life photos without a deep sense of regret. Only the city car seemed silly then and still does. In the world of car-making and luxury brands, the three hardest and most unattainable pieces of the puzzle are: — great ideas — a fantastic brand name and legacy — global distribution and sales The …

Hypercar Heroes – Aston Martin One-77 Mega Gallery + Digital Colorizer and Black Trim Pack

The Aston Martin One-77 is so incredibly sexy and dramatic – as rare as it is special. The typical Aston GT visuals are all stretched, lowered and made more bad-ass in every way. Far down below in this article are 42 high-res photos of the 77-copy hypercar out and about at a few fancy shows in England – looking dapper even in a mature maroon. Directly below is a visual color test, including a virtual ‘black pack’ of tinted glass, dark headlamps and a few shades of darker grille. Still very impressive designs on the One-77 — with the large …
