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 600 horsepower/481 pound-feet of torque Godzilla

Part of the reason the car earned its “Godzilla” namesake. It has since been eclipsed, but the folks at Nissan seem determined to reclaim [...]


Remember when we talked about spending a day on the famous Paul Ricard Circuit with a 740 horsepower, $600,000 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive? Well this is the complete story of taking the Fastest EV in the world on a ex-Formula One track… The feeling is surreal. Does not compute. Syntax error. I’m already [...]

The Four Rings teams its 4-door looker with firepower to match

Audi has many beautiful vehicles in its line-up, frankly there are few (if any) automakers out there who can compete with the Four Rings on a strictly aesthetic level. And one of their best looking vehicles, the A7 sportback, is getting the RS overhaul for 2014 — something Benz’s CLS63 and BMW’s M6 are probably [...]

2013 unleashes a 188hp & 105 lb-ft of torque motorcycle

Italian motorcycle builder Bimota has a rich heritage in racing, even holding the crown of Fastest Motorcycle On Earth briefly with its very rare YB6 EXUP in the 90s. Other bikes, like the Massimo Tamburini–designed Bimota Tesi 1D, were game changers, featured hub-center steering—a configuration that sees the front wheel attached to the bike not [...]
