Crewe decides to go truly absurd with its latest flagship barge

In the opulently appointed world of Bentley Motors, the GT Continental has always been the bristling high-performance model. Its recently unveiled GT Speed is the most powerful and fastest Bentley ever built (626 horsepower/206 mph), while the GT3-R edition has been dubbed its quickest (0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds). So where does that leave […]


The yearly bacchanal of the world’s wealthiest automotive enthusiasts, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, is fast approaching. Which means luxury automakers will be teasing some of their most exciting vehicles this week, hoping to attract the attention (and wallets) of the uber-rich. So it’s little surprise that Land Rover, makers of the de rigeur SUV […]


Houston, Texas-based modifiers of obscene horsepower, Hennessey, fill their corporate coffers supercharging Corvette and Cadillac engines to the point of absurdity. But they are best known for their Bugatti-killing Venom hypercar. Hennessey and Bugatti, in fact, have gone back to the lab many times in the past 10 years to squeeze out a bit more power […]

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 […]

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. Dubbed the Nemesis, the wildly curvaceous hypercar takes some styling cues from the McLaren P1, but quickly moves on from there to craft a […]

Only 6 of the $2,000,000 Swedish machines to be built

Are you ready for the most ridiculous automotive stat, well, ever? Swedish hypercar specialist Koenigsegg is boasting their new vehicle will feature a one-to-one power-to-weight ratio of 1,340 horsepower to 1,340 kilograms (2,950 pounds). I’m not sure which is more ludicrous — the 1,340 horses under the hood or the Kate Moss-on-coke-diet-like 1,340 kilograms of […]
