2017 SEAT Alteca – Sharp Spanish Marque’s First SUV is a No-Brainer

  Despite the name: this is no Aztek!~ More and more lately, SUV reveals make you think only one thing:  what took so long?

Update1 No Crash, But No Speed Either – 2014 Audi RS7 Piloted Concept at Hockenheim

Updated 10.19.14 No driver, no drama and no crashes from the Audi RS7 around Hockenheim! But also… not as much speed as one might expect. The car was driving at about five tenths, which is disappointing due to the outlined info below. It knew the track and was still pretty wimpy.
