Cadillac: 2014 CTS Will Offer 420 HP Turbo V6

Not the CTS-V—the regular CTS.

Power junkies, rejoice: Cadillac announced today that the 2014 CTS, scheduled to debut at the New York International Auto Show, will offer a twin-turbocharged V6 that makes 420 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque, and—in part thanks to an eight-speed automatic—sends the new CTS from 0-60 in 4.6 seconds. Which is good news not just for CTS lovers, but for GM fans in general. (more…)

Behold The Insanity That Is The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6

A six-wheel-drive luxury G-Wagen. We're in love.

Six driven wheels. 536 horsepower. 561 lb-ft of torque. Eighteen inches of ground clearance. Five mechanical differential locks. Three and a quarter feet of water-fording ability. Two gas tanks—one 25.4 gallons, the other 16.6 gallons. 37" tires, all of which can be remotely inflated or deflated from the driver's seat. Production of 30 to 50 units per year. It's seven feet seven inches tall, 19 feet five inches long, and weighs 8,470 pounds. It is the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6. It is real, and like Teri Hatcher's breasts circa 1993, it is spectacular.

Check Out Pagani's Oddly Erotic Huayra Ad (w/Video)

Assuming your workplace doesn't have a problem with videos featuring sexual content.

Now, normally, when we'd tease a supercar's video by saying it's "erotic" and contains "sexual content," it's our little way of making a joke about how gorgeous and alluring the car in question is. Yes, ha ha, that Ferrari is almost as hot as Kate Upton climbing out of a pool in a white T-shirt. But in this case, we're being literal: This Pagani promo video actually features two people going to town on each other.

Also, there was some stuff in there about the wind being a god, or something. Between the car and that woman's ass, we weren't really listening. Maybe you'll have more luck.

Porsche 911 GT3 Powertrain Video Is The Best Thing You'll Watch Today

Assuming you haven't seen that video of the baby seals on the surfboard.

We'd worry about giving too much coverage to the 2014 Porsche 911 GT3, but, well, we don't think we actually could. So we present to you now this video detailing the Porsche 911 GT3's incredible powertrain—a video presented in true Porsche style.

What does that entail? An awful lot of powersliding, hot lapping, on-track action in the new 911 GT3, all while an informative Germanic voiceover describes what makes the car tick. There's a nice helping of CGI graphics and plenty of world-class camerawork, too. Check it out below—but if you haven't seen that video of the seal pups trying to climb aboard a surf board at sea, you should watch that too.

Ferrari LaFerrari Could Have Looked Like This

We're glad it doesn't.

The Ferrari LaFerrari turned out to, in our humble opinion, be the best looking authentic supercar in quite some time. But it have turned out very differently, based on these pictures. (more…)

Test Drive - 2012 Porsche Panamera Turbo S

A Porsche with room for the kids—but you won't hear much complaining.


Story: Michael Crenshaw

Model Tested: The fast one

Rating: 6 out of 6

Story: Michael Crenshaw

Initially, the Porsche Panamera caused, let’s say, a commotion in the car world, because of its unorthodox styling and because it’s a Porsche (actually, a lack thereof, the “purists” said) sedan. But since its introduction in 2009, the Panamera has surpassed all expectations. Sure, it still takes some getting used to, and you might think the rear is alien-esque, but the Panamera is a true Porsche, and you need to get in the driver’s seat—or, in the case of the Panamera Turbo S, those two beautiful rear buckets.

The first thing that amazes about this people-moving rocket is how, with the push of a few buttons, the character of this sedan changes from limo to land-speed record. It’s as tame as a kitten around town with every system in its normal mode; shifts are imperceptible, acceleration is telepathic and the ride is sublime. However, once the true nature of this 550 horsepower leviathan is put to use, you can expect your facial muscles to contort in ways not possible in other rides. Activating Sport Plus mode truly alters the character, and once your right foot does the talking, the Turbo S speaks volumes. If you still had any doubts about the performance, all you need to do is complete a few simple steps: Engage Sport Plus, shift over into manual mode, stomp your left foot on the brake and your right on the gas (which activates launch control), release the brake and hold on. You can repeatedly do 0-60 in 3.6 seconds.

It would be one thing for a sedan to go fast—look to any Mercedes or BMW for that—but the area this Porsche truly shines in is going fast and becoming docile when you’re carting around three other lucky passengers. Opting for the rear comfort seats (eight-way adjustment and ventilation) means that not only will passengers want to ride with you, but they’ll beg to stay. And with the optional 16-speaker, 1,000-watt Burmester audio system, there’s no better place to spend a long afternoon drive.

The multitude of options, buttons and switches make for personalization on a higher level. It may seem overwhelming at first, but once you master the layout of the Panamera, your hand seems to effortlessly glide to where it needs to be.

Porsche may never again be seen as a sports-car-only company, but if they want to build other amazing vehicles that help finance their operations, who’s to question them when they build unflappable vehicles like the Panamera Turbo S?


Price: $186,845

Power: 550hp, 553 lb.-ft.

Mercedes-Benz Will Show Off SLS AMG Successor Soon...Kinda

Expect a concept car preview version in the near future.

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG isn't actually that old—it only went on sale here in the U.S. in 2011, and its midcycle refresh versions (the SLS AMG GT, the SLS AMG Black Series, and the SLS AMG Electric Drive) are just making their way to the streets around now. But progress never takes a vacation, so Mercedes-Benz is already hard at work on the SLS AMG's replacement. And it's closer than you might think.

According to Autocar, Mercedes-Benz will preview the SLS AMG's replacement in concept form "very soon." Reportedly, the SLS AMG's replacement will be downsized a bit in comparison to the SLS, both in size and in price; Mercedes-Benz is reportedly planning to aim the new car straight at the Porsche 911—with variants to face off against many of the 911's models. (Considering the 911 goes as high as 620 horsepower, we're guessing the SLS replacement won't be lacking in power compared to its predecessor.)

This doesn't mean the SLS is on its deathbed; it supposedly still has a few years left in its life. But Mercedes-Benz may just be really excited to show off what they're working on; reportedly, the new car's design will be one for the ages. Autocar describes it as "iconic." But before we see it, we have to "sit through" the unveil of the new S-Class in May and the reveal of the new C-Class either late this year or early in 2014. Guess we can live with that.

Aston Martin CC100: Aston Martin's 100-Year Birthday Present To Themselves

And for two very rich people.

Building super-limited-edition, super-exotic versions of already-existing super sports cars seems to be the new game in the exotic car world. (See: Lamborghini Veneno.) Not to be left behind, Aston Martin is reportedly planning on whipping up a concept-like two-seat roadster called the CC100 based off the V12 Vantage to celebrate their 100th birthday.

But in the spirit of this new trend of building as few cars as possible to generate as much buzz as possible, Aston martin will apparently only build two CC100 examples, to be revealed in May: one officially commemorating the car maker's centenary, the other in recognition of Sterling Moss's win of the the 1959 Nürburgring 1000km in an Aston Martin DBR1. Because Sir Sterling, that's why.

The CC100 will supposedly come without any roof or doors, which should make entry and exit difficult for anyone over the age of 35—a potentially foolish decision, considering most people capable of affording the car's price tag (reportedly between the V12 Zagato's $500,000 price and the $2.1 million price of the One-77) are well above that age. But if they can't find buyers, well, they're bringing two more concepts to Pebble Beach. [via Autocar]
