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 […]


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 […]

395 horsepower, 332 lb-ft of torque & 174 mph top speed

Not happy with letting Mercedes-Benz claim ownership of “World’s Most Powerful Four-Cylinder” title, Volkswagen has decided to create an absurd beast of a car. Their new hot hatch Golf R 400 Concept boasts performance that buries Benz’s AMG-enhanced CLA45 — although that car really exists in the real world, whereas the Golf R 400 is strictly a concept (although […]


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 […]
