Want a McLaren P1? Too Bad

Unless you live in Europe, in which case, you're in luck.

So you finally did it. You sold your old house and moved into a smaller one, cashed in your 401(k), sold your soul for a high-paying thankless Wall Street job, and killed a few homeless people and sold their organs to the Chinese mob, all so you could pull together the $1.3 million or so you needed to buy a McLaren P1. And then...you find out it's sold out. (more…)

Mitsubishi Builds Two Custom Outdoor Lifestyle SUVs (w/Video)

An Outlander Sport for summer, and an Outlander for winter.

Look, we get it—you probably never gave the Mitsubishi Outlander or Outlander Sport much thought. It's okay; we're not angry. But we do think you should reconsider. The same guys who make the Evo, it turns, out, have a knack for building strong small SUVs—and they're even better when customized. (more…)

2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport laps Nurburgring in 8:14.10

While it wasn't a new Cadillac CTS-V, which was once known as the fastest sedan to lap the Nurburgring, the new 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport recently hit up the famous German track and returned an outstanding time of 8 minutes and 14 seconds. Powered by a 3.6 liter twin-turbo V6 the Cadillac Vsport produces 420-hp and 430 lb-ft of torque and is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The time of 8:14.10 is almost six seconds faster than the first generation CTS-V recorded 10 years ago with a larger V8 engine. “The Nürburgring’s extreme conditions allow us to push cars to the limits of stability, steering, braking, ride and handling,” said Dave Leone, CTS executive chief engineer, Performance Luxury Vehicles. “The new CTS models had a lot to live up to considering the nameplate’s history of outstanding performance, and we were not disappointed.” “The new CTS was an absolute riot to drive on the Ring,” said Zelenka. “It’s more athletic and refined, and the Vsport proved extremely capable. If a car performs well on the Ring, it will perform well on any road in the world.” Prices for the 2014 Cadillac CTS will start at $46,025, including $925 destination. The CTS Vsport model starts at $59,995, including $925 destination.

There Seems To Be Some Confusion About The C7 Corvette Z06

Starting with the name.

There's a new report in Car and Driver that purports to have the scoop on the next-generation of the Corvette Z06 lineage. Which we always want to hear about. Only problem is, in this case, it's directly contradicting something else we heard. Let's take a look at the two reports, shall we? (more…)

Nissan To Have Self-Driving Vehicles Ready by 2020

We love cars. No, actually we have an unhealthy obsession with cars. We love driving cars and everything that goes into building a piece of machinery with 4 wheels, an engine, a steering wheel and a gas and brake pedal. Well, be warned that there are companies out there that are trying to take that away from us. It's no surprise that Google is already working on a self-driving vehicle and already has licenses in many states. Nissan has now stated that it will "be ready with revolutionary commercially-viable Autonomous Drive in multiple vehicles by the year 2020." Nissan already has a program underway in Japan that is dedicated to building autonomous driving vehicles. Nissan's goal is to have availability across the model range within two vehicle generations. "Nissan Motor Company's willingness to question conventional thinking and to drive progress – is what sets us apart," said CEO Carlos Ghosn. "In 2007 I pledged that – by 2010 – Nissan would mass market a zero-emission vehicle. Today, the Nissan LEAF is the best-selling electric vehicle in history. Now I am committing to be ready to introduce a new ground-breaking technology, Autonomous Drive, by 2020, and we are on track to realize it." Nissan says that the self-driving technology is an extension of its Safety Shield system, which monitors a 360-degree view around a vehicle for risks, offers warnings to the driver and takes action if necessary. On the flip side, Nissan is trying to curb accidents reminding us that 6 million crashes occur in the US per year and cost $160 billion.

First Picture of the Infiniti Q30 Released

Infiniti has released the first image of its Q30 compact utility vehicle ahead of its official debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. "The Infiniti Q30 Concept signals the contemporary design vision for a compact Infiniti vehicle which will target a new generation of premium customers," Infiniti said in a statement. "Q30 Concept embodies Infiniti's vision to deliver head-turning design, innovative materials with precise fit and finish and passionate craftsmanship, while provoking a radical shift in the premium compact segment." There isn't really a question of whether or not Infiniti will build the Q30 - it's more of when it will build it. The Infiniti Q30 will compete with the likes of the BMW X1, Audi Q3, and the new Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class. Infiniti says that the Q30 also "signals the next step in an aggressive strategy to extend the Infiniti brand into new premium segments."

Toyota GT 86 / Scion FR-S May Find There's No Replacement For Displacement

Toyota's little sports car could get a bigger engine.

The Scion FR-S is a pretty damn impressive little sports car, with a Porsche-worthy chassis and tenacious yet pitchable handling. But if the car has a weakness, it lies beneath that long, low hood. With only 200 horses and 151 lb-ft of torque, the 2.0 liter boxer four Subaru developed for the Toyota GT 86/Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ is adequate at best—but the car could handle so much more. (more…)
