Unveiling an ambitious plan for the top end of its luxury line-up

During our visit to Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance last month, our hosts at Infiniti teased us between dinner courses with an enigmatic poster board. The image was of a spot-lit automotive grill, nothing else — the equivalent of showing a flexed bicep to tease the next Dwayne Johnson shoot ‘em up. It revealed absolutely nothing, […]

Racing division unveils boxy concept at Tokyo Motor Show

Nissan’s NISMO racing division has been busy of late, yesterday revealing their NISMO edition GT-R supercar and video showing it breaking the Nürburgring lap speed record along the way.

The 600 horsepower/481 pound-feet of torque Godzilla

Nissan’s GT-R established its supercar pedigree on the famed (and deadly) corners of the Nürburgring, at one time holding the record for a lap time against cars four times its cost. Part of the reason the car earned its “Godzilla” namesake. It has since been eclipsed, but the folks at Nissan seem determined to reclaim […]

Cadillac  has decided to take its quite stunning Converj concept from 2009 (which we covered way back when) and move it into production, a very big announcement from GM’s luxury division.

Nissan's zero emission ode to sustainable urban commuting

While there were many headturning unveilings at last week’s Paris Motor Show — including breathlessly hyped supercars from the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes Benz, Jaguar and even Peugeot —Nissan’s TeRRA SUV concept snuck through the press coverage with making much noise. Combining the Japanese automaker’s success with urban-relevant SUVs (e.g. Pathfinder, Juke, Murano etc) […]

Design firm Lazzarini takes the Italian love one step too far

You may remember a few other car concepts where huge engines are stuffed into tiny cars (Nissan Juke-R, Volkswagen Golf GTI W12 650, Ford Fiesta SHOgun, Renault V6 Clio, etc), but Italian design firm Lazzarini perhaps took the idea one step too far with their Italian-on-Italian lovefest, aptly dubbed the 550 Italia. The vehicle, hypothetically, […]
