Traditionally, Americans have born the burden of hating diesels. Or at least, that was the mistaken word on the street. In the past year, clean diesel sales have soared, buoyed by a new crop of Audis, Mercs, Chevies, Mazdas, Cadillacs, Jeeps and even Porsches — not to mention VW, which boasted selling over 100,000 TDIs [...]


After Harley-Davidson bought his Buell brand and then dissolved it, many wondered what American motorcycle icon and engineer Erik Buell would do. Well, as any great visionary would do, Buell hunkered back into his Wisconsin lab to do what he does best: design world class two-wheelers. The result? Erik Buell Racing‘s EBR 1190RX, a more [...]


The International Supercar Wars just got a little testier this week, with the pronouncement from a California-based company called Trion Supercars that they were engineering a 2,000-horsepower rubber and asphalt devourer.

189 mph top speed, 570-horsepower & 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds

Some cars are known for performance. Some for luxury. Some are even known for teetotalling efficiency. Not Audi’s RS7 fastback. Its executive supercar is all business.  All images by James Bailey.  When Tom stepped into the gleaming Audi dealership in downtown Denver, he knew exactly what vehicle he had his eyes set on.
