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

The replacement for the CL-Class gets its AMG makeover

After unveiling their gorgeous 2015 S-Class Coupe (which we posted last month), Mercedes-Benz lifts the sheets on AMG’s makeover of the car. Due to be revealed at the New York Auto Show next month, Benz was kind enough to give the people what they want a couple weeks early. Developed to replace the CL-Class, the S-Class Coupe is [...]

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 [...]

You're best chance to outrun a villain in a 550-horsepower saloon

Aston Martin lent us their four-door supercar to experience in person. The $200,000 Rapide S is a vast improvement on the original Rapide, but how does it muster up to the competition? All images by James Elliot Bailey. High performance luxury sedans are hardly a rare beast; performance variants of executive saloons litter Beverly Hills [...]

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. He’d spent the [...]


Last week we eulogized the Lamborghini Gallardo, as we noted it was the end of the road for two automotive icons (the other being the hippie classic VW Bus). But you knew the Raging Bull wasn’t going to leave the segment bare, so the world has since waited with baited breath to see its replacement. It [...]

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 [...]
