790HP 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63-S Estate by Wimmer RST

At what point do supertune’s start getting depressing?  Take this new C63-S Estate by Germany’s Wimmer RennSport Technik.  This humble family hauled goes from a monstrous 500HP to a sheerly obscene 790! That is adding almost 300 horsepower — more than many performance cars deliver in total! Granted, the full Wimmer RST mod shown here is also priced at 30k Euro — enough to afford a nice WRX Sti if you wanted 300HP (and a whole car) attached. Will any STi deliver G-forces like this killer C63-S longroof? Nope. The results of 790HP to the back wheels are predictably shocking. …

2016 Porsche CAYMAN GT4 – Latest 30 Action Shots from Algarve Impress, But Car Is Poor Value

Reviewing the latest photos and video of the Cayman GT4 is quite perplexing. Who is this $84k machine aimed at?> Perhaps 911 GT3 aspirers, but for half the cash?

But even Porsche knows it has a problem: there is no Cayman badge on the back of the car.  Just Porsche and GT4 letters to mark out the model. And that is the crux of it: this is a halo Cayman that hopes to ramp up excitement around the …

R-Type Continental Races 2016 GT Speed in Charming Family Reunion

Bentley is bringing out the big icons in its back catalog recently for side-by-sides with the current 2016 Continental lineup. Last week, we saw the GT3 and GT3-R road models rendezvous with their iconic 1930 forebearer: the Birkin Blower Le Mans racecar. This week, we trot forward in time to the R-Type Continental of 1952 — the closest direct link to the current car in spirit and execution. This fastback stunner is a magnificent machine for defining its buyer wants and needs, and exceeding all expectations with the eventual product. What were these goals? True sit-up luxury and generous space …

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 …
