Rolls-Royce Wraith – Color Showcase – Salamanca Blue

Since being swept away on a huge wave of new-found enthusiasm for the Double-R, Wraith has never been more than a few thoughts away. As fun and posh and unforgettable as the ride in a *brand new* Phantom Series II was – the time spent inside Wraith is most tingly. I should mention this now: the name of the vehicle is simply “Wraith” – without anything in front. It might be a bit formal at first, but if not for a 624-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V-12 coupe.. when? Some of the colors that really make Wraith leap into action are set to …

Driven Car Review - 2014 Buick LaCrosse Is Huge, Smooth and Silent19

Driven Car Review – 2014 Buick LaCrosse Is Huge, Smooth and Silent

The Buick LaCrosse is fresh for 2014 with a variety of improvements in almost every area, but with pricing that holds the base line at $34,000. The outside is sharper than before with LED and bi-xenon lighting up front, while new LED styles for the brake lights come in out back. Inside, everything takes a step toward classier finishes and surfaces, while tech integration for the touchscreen infotainment and active safety is now one of the best from any luxury brand. Larger wheels all around are a LaCrosse feature for 2014 as well, but the most notable improvements to this …

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 in 102 Photos

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 in 102 Photos The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is poised to be the absolute hottest sports car for 2014, with pricing just below $70,000, carbon-fiber galore, and even the handy targa roof panel that stows in the trunk. During our chance to test out this incredible car, we were astounded by its amazing chassis rigidity, vastly improved touch points all around, and the easy performance on offer. Even after driving a Viper and a few other tasty machines, the pure joy of hearing the Corvette howl through its vocal range is deeply memorable. Enjoy these photos …

Time To Start Playing Grand Theft Auto 5?

The video game business is evolving much more rapidly than many movie studios in terms of their broad reach and level of interactivity with the players who devote hours to winning the race, collecting a mad fleet of exotic cars, or even doing the most efficient kill shots on robo retro future zombies. Or something. The automotive genre of the car business is quite a unique subset. Guys and gals who have never enjoyed most console games with first-person-shooters, RPGs and other fantasy wizard content can somehow really love car games. Gran Turismo is obviously the mack daddy franchise, but …

2014 Unimog U5023 Now Packing Scary Style and Tech The legendary Mercedes-Benz Unimog all-terrain trucks are refreshed for 2013 with a comprehensive makeover inside the cabin, underneath that boxed ladder chassis and outside with a menacing new grille and LED lighting.

WOW! Nissan BladeGlider Concept Is Stunning – But Confusing

WOW! Nissan BladeGlider Concept Is Stunning – But Confusing Nissan today revealed an exciting new prototype sports car that blends the best thinking in racing EV tech, track-day lightness, and Z-car purity. As a pinched nose design, the BladeGlider is most similar, in negineering terms, to the Nissan-backed 2012 DeltaWing experimental LeMans entry. Sharing key rear-axle torque vectoring should allow the BladeGlider to have the precision and incredible pace of the DelaWing — but the affordable pricing and market potential of a Mazda MX-5 competitor. Interesting. Confusing. Exciting.

Iconic Classic: 1938 Dubonnet Hispano-Suiza H6C Xenia

Iconic Classic: 1938 Dubonnet Hispano-Suiza H6C Xenia If it seems like we have an unhealthy fascination for the Mullin Automotive Museum, you might be right. The cars inside this collection just… write their own stories. I have a dozen more that I would like to feature, but we must start at the true nexus – or “Xenia” perhaps – of the art of French coach-building by Jacques Saoutchik and his contemporaries. How all these cars got to sunny California is no accident. In many cases – the cars in the collection were painstakingly built – sometimes from only drawings – …

Note: This article is a few months old, but unpublished until now.. HSV has launched their latest generation of track-ready vehicles under a new nomenclature: Gen-F. The Gen-F lineup consists of hot sedans, ‘utes and wagons all powered by the monstrous 6.2 liter LSA V-8, available magnetic damping, and even the latest MyLink infotainment package.

Hey guys! Well, this is my first Monday morning in years with a blank slate and a future wide open. Let’s go for a drive.

While we can *definitely* write and photoshop and drive and rant… We are not HTML5 literate. Please ‘excuse the dust’ during this very BetaMax launch of my dream car publication. Hopefully yours too. The defining goal will be “car stories *I* would want to read.” That might be culture, vintage, travel, or TV show …

My most popular YouTube driving reviews ever? I’m glad you asked! Without a doubt – it is the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro RS 2LT and its dual-mode exhaust — slinging around the Chicago suburbs on a rainy Tuesday morning. Just goes to show me… that I cannot anticipate which videos will be popular, and which will not! But a hot car and a heavy right foot seem to be requirements overall. =]
