The new VW Bug isn’t really anything to shake a stick at; it’s mostly underpowered, questionably better looking and overall feels cheep to the touch. But slam that joint and throw it on a set of Vossen CV3′s and it makes for one lean, clean German machine.

“Oh hey, big sexy.” It was just a matter of time, as Mercedes-Benz updated the aesthetic of every other vehicle in its stable. Finally the flagship S-Class has gotten the redesign, and is certainly does look fetching. There is not much information about powertrain or anything, but Mercedes says the S-Class features more than 300 LEDs (MB says its their first car without a light bulb in over a hundred years. okay.) used for the head and taillights. It has 360-degree around-view vision (because this thing is too big to park). Its a big, sexy lady, and we like it.
If you were not already aware, Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th birthday…pretty much all year. The Italian supercar maker has splurged, with special edition road cars, and nearly one-of-a-kind track machines. The latest present to itself is this creation; the 2013 Lamborghini Egoista. It is a mind-melting, single-seat supercar, with a 600-horsepower 5.2-liter V10 under the stealth-like bonnet. It looks as though it could take flight at any moment. We like.
I’ll put a safe bet down to say that Jon Olsson is one of the most badass dudes on the planet. Pro skier, gearhead, entrepreneur, and now, automotive designer sort of. This is his unbearably gorgeous, completely road-legal creation- the Rebellion R2k. Pretty much a Le Mans car made for the road.
When you hear “Bentley” and “Le Mans” you may think of the “Bentley Boys,” a group of wealthy owners of the British performance machine in the late 1920′s, that raced with agression. Bentley was started in 1919, and took its first win at Le Mans in 1924, followed by a quartet of wins, from ’27 to ’30.
Bentley would not win the endurance race for another 83 years, at the helm of the 2003 Bentley Speed 8. While Audi may dominate the French circuit now, Bentley has been a big part of the track’s history, and is commemorating that, through special Le Mans Editions of the Continental GT and the Mulsanne.
Every year at the Worthersee Festival in Austria, Volkswagen- along with any number of brands under the corporate umbrella- bring forth a set of concepts which stand out from the usual list of suspects. Like a 500-hp GTI. Yup, that’s definitely something you don’t see everyday.
Peter and Nick Papanicolaou are twins from Syndey, Australia. The pair have been hard at work on a special performance machine, and their labor has yielded fruit, in the form of this curvaceous, mid-engined machine from their Spartan Motor Company. With some inspiration from 60′s Le Mans racers, the car blends old and new, with a Honda-sourced 2.0-liter, making 250 horsepower. An available supercharged version of that engine will put out an impressive 400 horsepower. That’s a good hunk of motivation, considering the whole carbon fiber body weights just 55 pounds, and the entire vehicle clocks in at a mere 1,100 pounds!
Ever wonder why we don’t have flying cars yet? We seem to have the technology, so why are we not commuting like the Jetson’s? Massachusetts-based Terrafugia is a company that appears to agree. The company, consisting of MIT graduates, set the motoring world abuzz with the Terrafugia Transition which was more of a drivable plane than a flying car. That two-passenger vehicle required long distances to take off and land, thus a pilot’s license to venture on to a runway. The Woburn, MA-based company must have thought this was not nearly Jetson-y enough, as they have debuted a second, even more livable vehicle, dubbed the Terrafugia TF-X.
You knew it was coming. With the debut of the standard Porsche 911 and 911 Cabriolet, it was only a matter of time before we saw some of the serious bad-boy variants of the German rear-engine coupe, and now we have it; the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S. The coupes bring to the table some of the kit and look that we have come to love about the Turbo, as well as some new tricks.
The McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari have dominated the hypercar headlines of late, but the folks at Stuttgart have been hard at work on the Porsche 918 Spyder. The spiritual successor to the Porsche 917 is nearly ready, and according to a report from Autocar, Porsche has already been displaying the car to prospective buyers…in the Middle East, of course.
