PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-AMG E63 S By Posaidon

There may be a new-generation Mercedes-AMG E63 S in town now, but just because that’s the case, that doesn’t mean the previous-generation model will just fade out into the sunset. Noted Mercedes tuner Posaidon seems to think that there’s still some untapped potential left in the “old” AMG E63 S, and like any tuner worth its salt, Posaidon set about unlocking it with a new program that delivers a staggering 1,090 horsepower, more than what today’s lineup of hypercars are capable of.

Wrap your heads around that number for a second. 1,090 horsepower for the Mercedes-AMG E63 S. Sure, the mid-sized performance saloon is capable of handling that much power, but not without a lot of help, or at least in this case, a bigger engine up front. That’s the scope of what Posaidon has done. Not to mention the work Posaidon put in, which speaks to the kind of upgrades it’s offering for the Merc-AMG. It’s admittedly not for everyone, but for those who prefer supercar-levels of power out of the E63 S beauties, the German tuner’s power offering is about as high as it’s going to get. And in case it’s a little too out of reach for a customer’s sensibilities, Posaidon does have other options on the menu, specifically upgrades that “only” bring out 850 and 920 horsepower, respectively. I suppose the output numbers, in this case, are relative, but then again, even an 850-horsepower AMG E63 S is going to be a whirlwind to drive.

PostHeaderIcon Get Ready! The Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII is Coming

In case you’ve been sleeping, or missed our history piece on the Rolls-Royce Phantom, you should know that one of the world’s most iconic luxury cars just recently celebrated its 90th birthday in 2015, if you don’t count the time from 1939 to 1950 when Rolls-Royce was shut down due to the war. Over its long and illustrious history, it has changed dramatically, keeping with the times and always taking luxury one step further. The most recent generation, the Phantom VII, has been around since 2003 and was in production until 2016, which means it’s time for the next-gen Phantom VIII to make its long-awaited debut. As is the usual case, the car won’t really change much, but it will get all of the modern updates you would expect from a luxury marque like Rolls-Royce. It’s set to debut on July 27 and should bring updated exterior styling with new fascias, LED headlights (possibly laser headlights) and a revamped grille with lots of chrome trim. And, let’s not forget about the suicide doors.

But, it’s not all about the exterior design that comes as a result of this new-gen model. See, the platform is being completely revised and will be an “aluminum-intensive” setup that’s known as the “Architecture of Pure Luxury.” Word has it that it will shed some significant weight, which means more speed and better economy, and AWD or electrified drivetrains could also be brought to the table as Rolls continues to modernize its most iconic model. That modernization will also bring an updated infotainment system to the interior that features a larger screen, and it will likely get gesture control too as Rolls-Royce can’t be beat out by the BMW 7 Series, right? LED ambient lighting is pretty much guaranteed as is an all-digital instrument cluster. The latter may upset those who prefer the classic look, but Rolls could very easily provide the classic look on a digital platform, a move that will make everyone happy. We’re also expecting a massive V12 engine to sit under the hood, but whether it will be a revised unit or just carried over from the last generation remains to be seen.

Are you excited for the new Phantom to make its debut? Keep reading to learn more about its debut event and where you can watch it for yourself.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition by Mulliner

By now, you would think that Mulliner would have done just about every kind of luxury interpretation imaginable. That is at the heart of its job as Bentley’s in-house personalization division. Over the past few years, we’ve seen Mulliner turn Bentleys into works of pure art and opulence. You’d be surprised, though, how creative this group can get, and no more is that in full display than in its latest project, the Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition.

Yes, Mulliner just finished another limited edition build for Bentley. Yes, it looks amazing. Yes, it takes its name from the Greek goddess of calm seas. And yes, it’s nautically-inspired, right down to the whole treatment in the exterior and interior of the convertible. It says a lot about the Continental GT Convertible Galene’s status as a decadent limited edition that even Princess Yachts, the creators of some of the most expensive yachts in the world, got involved in the project with Mulliner. The styling cues in the exterior and interior are indicative of what Princess Yachts does with its own expensive products, and you can tell by how the whole model turns out that it’s a Bentley that’s ideally suited for a specific clientele. Only 30 units of the Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition will be built, too. That’s hardly a surprise considering the people behind its creation. Luxury begets luxury, and the Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition is a physical embodiment of that.

PostHeaderIcon The Gilded History of the Rolls-Royce Phantom

Sir Henry Royce, co-founder of Rolls-Royce, is quoted as saying, “Strive for perfection in everything you do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it doesn’t exist, design it.” Those are some pretty heavy words, but it’s the right credo for an automaker like Rolls-Royce. With a history of producing some of the most elegant, opulent, and downright desirable luxury vehicles on the planet, perfection isn’t just a goal – it’s an expectation. Such is the case with the Phantom, Rolls-Royce’s highly recognizable flagship model. These are cars that are destined for the stables of royalty, acting as a rolling signature of power, wealth, and prestige.

Lead by the trademark Spirit of Ecstasy on the hood, the Phantom comes equipped with top-shelf extravagance and lavishness, offering high levels of personalization to those select buyers with pockets deep enough to really enjoy it. Currently offered in a variety of different flavors, including the standard Phantom, an Extended Wheelbase model, a Coupe, and a Drophead Coupe, Rolls has announced a new eighth generation slated for release later this week. However, the history of the nameplate is rapidly approaching a full century at this point, so how’d we get here? To find out, we delved into the Phantom’s history, taking a look at the seven generations that have come and gone since the model’s introduction in 1925.

PostHeaderIcon Pops’ Rants: The X-Class Sucks Because You’re a Snotty Elitist

Another day, another carrot. Oh wait, scratch that, the folks over at Warner Brothers may not like it. Just like I don’t like the new Mercedes-Benz X-Class. But hey, unlike Warner Brothers, I can’t sue the Germans for launching the most boring pickup truck ever. But you should know that already, because I posted a big rant on the matter yesterday. I simply hate the design. I think it’s uninspired and lacks everything a Mercedes should have, minus the subdued — and incredibly booooring — styling. Both inside and out. And the worst part is that the truck it is based on, the Nissan Navara, looks way better.

But leaving the X-Class’ design aside for a bit, there’s one more thing that’s been bugging me. It doesn’t have to do as much with the X-Class as with the Navara and with people complaining that Mercedes used a Nissan-Renault Alliance platform for its first pickup truck. I keep seeing this as an argument as to why the X-Class is a big disappointment and I find it ridiculous. And I’m gonna explain why.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M3 CS on the Books for 2018

Earlier in 2017, we saw BMW launch a new limited-edition M4. It’s called the CS and slots between the standard M4 and the track-ready GTS. Essentially a GTS without the massive wing, the CS also marked the return of the famous badge that BMW used in the 1960s and 1970s. Not surprisingly, the M4 CS was very popular with BMW enthusiasts, which is why the German brand is also considering a sedan version. Naturally, it will be called the M3 CS.

The beefed-up M3 is not yet official, but the folks over at German outlet Bimmer Today claim that the four-door CS will arrive sometime in 2018. The source also says that the M3 CS will share underpinnings with its M4 counterpart, meaning that it will hit the street with the upgraded twin-turbo, six-cylinder engine rated at 460 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. This output will make the CS the most powerful M3 ever, placing it above the legendary E92-generation M3 GTS, which had 444 horses on tap. What’s more, it should be a tad quicker than the standard M3 with a 0-to-62 sprint of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 174 mph.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-AMG GLE63

Although it received a new name for the 2016 model year, switching from M- to GLE-Class, Mercedes’ current midsize SUV is far from new. Sure, the facelift brought many updates inside and out, but the truth is that the GLE is already six years old as of 2017 and a bit long in the tooth. But this will change soon, as Mercedes-Benz is already testing prototypes of the next-generation model on public roads. The high-performance AMG GLE63 is the latest version to make contact with our paparazzi, near the iconic Nurburgring track.

The new GLE is set to gain numerous and important updates, most coming from the E-Class sedan, on which it is based on. The AMG version will get similar upgrades, including an almost identical drivetrain to the AMG E63 four-door. There will be a big tech upgrade, as well as significant gains in the performance department, due to a lighter curb weight and a more powerful drivetrain. Details are still under wraps as of this writing, but the upcoming GLE63 isn’t much of a mystery since we already know everything about the AMG E63 sedan. Join me in my speculative review to find out more about this high-performance SUV.

PostHeaderIcon Infiniti Q50

The Infiniti Q50 hit the market for the 2014 model year, and just two years later, Infiniti refreshed it for the 2016 model year. Well, instead of ushering in a new generation, Infiniti has decided to do another mild update for the 2018 model year, which includes a slightly different look outside, a revamped interior, and some new driver assistance features not previously available. Engine options include a 2.0-liter gasoline mill, a 2.2-liter turbodiesel, the 3.5-liter V-6, and a hybrid setup that combines a 3.5-liter V-6 and a 50-kW electric motor – giving the car a power output range of anywhere between 168 horsepower and 400 horsepower. The Q50 also makes use of Direct Adaptive Steering, a feature that Infiniti says is a “key building block to achieving fully-autonomous driving.” But, what is more important, is that each trim level will have its own stand-alone features and styling that will help it stand out in the lineup.

Roland Krueger, the President of Infiniti, said, “Infiniti seeks to empower our customers on their journey through their experience with us – whether it is our products, our technologies, our services, or simply a passion for driving. There is no better vehicle that incorporates all the elements of the Infiniti brand than the Q50 saloon.”

Now that the 2018 Infiniti Q5 has made its debut at the 2017 Geneva Auto Show, we have lots to talk about, so let’s dive on in and take a closer look at it and how it compares to the competition.

Update 7/21/2017: Infiniti has announced pricing for the 2018 Infiniti Q50. It starts out at $34,200, a $150 increase over last year’s model, and increases to as much as $53,000 for the Red Sport 400 – an increase of $2,300 over last year’s model. Check out the prices section below for all of the details.

PostHeaderIcon Audi RS8

Enthusiasts have been clamoring for a high-performance version of the A8 ever since Audi started making RS-badged cars in the 1990s. But they’ve been out of luck until now. Although Audi did introduce the S8 as early as 1996 and made a version for each generation until now, it has yet to launch a proper RS8 model. And that’s a pretty big issue with the potent AMG S63 and S65 up for grabs and a BMW M7 reportedly under way. With a brand-new Audi A8 to talk about, the first-ever RS8 feels closer than ever.

And it should be! Given the current market trends and the way deep-pocketed customers are empying their bank accounts to take high-performance, luxury sedans home, the RS8 is quite the urgent matter. It would be a big mistake to pass on the opportunity, especially with the new A8 having all the cool features and technology on top of a sporty, yet elegant design. The absence of an RS model in the fourth-generation A8 lineup would widen the gap between Audi and its competitors even further, and it’s safe to assume that Ingolstadt is tired of trailing behind Mercedes-Benz and BMW. With the first-ever RS8 almost imminent, we created a rendering of the car to go with our latest speculative review. Check it out below!

PostHeaderIcon TopSpeed’s Top 5 Physics-Defying Performance Crossovers And SUVs

Technology has a very strange habit of turning the impossible (or at the very least, the improbable) into reality. This is especially true in the automotive world, where seemingly contradictory attributes manage to find a happy middle ground with surprising regularity. Case in point – the performance crossover and SUV segment. Once a body style relegated to utility, the modern tall-bodied, cargo-tastic crossover or SUV can now be had with a heavy dose of speed as well, apparently defying the laws of physics with mammoth grip and absurd levels of power. These days, it doesn’t matter if a model is heavy and huge – add the right parts, and it’ll be quick as well.

It’s a combination that seems to be growing in popularity, with a nice assortment of options available across the market. As such, we’ve collected five of the best right here for your perusal. Each offers a decent amount of cargo space, high levels of luxury, and the option for performance as well, all for a price tag around $70,000 (give or take). Our picks look like this – BMW X3 M, Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, Mercedes-AMG GLC63, Porsche Macan Turbo, and Land Rover Range Rover Sport. We’ve got the lowdown on each right here, so read on for more info. And don’t forget to post your favorite in the comments section below!

PostHeaderIcon Genesis’ New Trademark Filings Hint At Something Special For Hyundai’s Fledgling Luxury Brand

Hyundai’s Genesis brand is slowly taking shape. The G80 and G90 sedans are already out in the market. The entry-level G70 is set to follow suit along with two SUVs and a performance sports coupe by 2020. While Genesis hasn’t announced names for these models, recent trademark filings uncovered by Motor Authority sheds light on possibilities. What’s more, Genesis is also planning a lineup of luxury and performance variants akin to Mercedes-AMG and BMW’s M Division.

Among the most notable trademark applications featured in the filing pertain to a lineup of models badged with a “GT” nomenclature, including the “GT60,” “GT70,” “GT80,” and “GT90.” We can already guess the GT80 and the GT90 to be more upscale versions of the G80 and G90, respectively. Likewise, the GT60 and the GT70 could fit the same profile when both the G60 and G70 ostensibly comes out in the near future. Moving away from the sedans and coupes, the filings also point to a full-scale family of crossovers and SUVs that will inevitably wear the “GV” nameplate. We already saw hints of that when Genesis revealed the GV80 Concept at the New York Auto Show. The production version of that concept will likely sit as the range-topping SUV of the new brand with the GV60 and GV70 models sitting below it. Once all these models hit the market (Genesis is aiming for a complete lineup by 2020), the luxury sub-brand that started off as a Hyundai model will have evolved into a full-fledged luxury automaker.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz X-Class Debuts In Cape Town, South Africa

Mercedes-Benz just revealed the X-Class, its very first pickup truck model, with the aim of mixing traditional off-road capability and utility with high-end German engineering and refinement. The debut took place during a live stream event in Cape Town, South Africa, and lacked the flair and excitement we expected from such a high-profile reveal, although we did get to see Dieter Zetsche, head of Mercedes-Benz and mustache enthusiast, in a cowboy hat, so not all was lost. We’ve been following Mercedes’ trail of breadcrumbs pretty closely in anticipation of the launch, but now we have solid details on everything from the interior tech, trim levels, powertrain, its on-sale date, and pricing.

Let’s tackle the oily bits first, shall we? Merc revealed a slew of engine options for the new X-Class, with both four-cylinder and six-cylinders on the table. The X-Class is rated at 1.1 tonne (2,425 pounds) for the payload and 3.5 tonne (7,716 pounds) for towing, and will come with either RWD or 4WD for traction. Both a six-speed manual and seven-speed automatic are available for the transmission options. Pricing will start at 37,000 euros ($49,455 at current exchange rates, 07/18/2017) with sales commencing in November in European markets. South Africa and Australia will get the X-Class in early 2018, while Argentina and Brazil must wait until the beginning of 2019. Want more?

PostHeaderIcon Rolls-Royce Phantom

Just a month ago, Rolls-Royce announced that it was testing an all-new aluminum architecture that would eventually underpin every Rolls-Royce model starting with the 2018 model year. The new architecture is built around an aluminum space-frame and according to Rolls, it “perfectly delivers the brands magic-carpet ride trademark.” At the time, Rolls also announced that it would soon begin testing mules underpinned by the new architecture, and it looks like we are getting a glimpse of one of the first mules – the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

Considering the company claims the new underpinnings is resilient to extreme weather conditions, it’s no surprise that our photographers caught the new Phantom testing in the snow. As you can see, the Phantom is under heavy camo, that is to be expected since the new Phantom is at least a year away from hit showrooms.

We know that the new space-frame should make the Phantom significantly lighter but, at first glance, it doesn’t look like we’ll see too many exterior changes on the outside. Of course, it is still pretty early to be speculating, but let’s take a look at the pictures and see what is going on with this camouflaged mule.

Update 7/18/2017: It’s been eight months since we last saw the Phantom in prototype form, and now, a few leaked images of the 2018 Phantom flyer has given us an early look at what we can expect when it debuts. Check out our special section below to find out all about it.

PostHeaderIcon Watch Live as Mercedes Launches the X-Class Pickup Today

The wait is finally over as Mercedes-Benz prepares to debut its all-new X-Class today at 1:14 P.M. Easter time. The X-Class is Mercedes’ first foray into the pickup truck market – a segment dominated by industry stalwarts like the Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger, and Volkswagen Amarok. Mercedes definitely has plenty to prove, but we should have a clear understanding this afternoon of how serious Mercedes is with dominating the segment. We’ve included the link to watch the live debut on YouTube, so stick around for that. In the mean time, let’s look at what we know about the 2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class.

The mid-size, consumer pickup segment is completely new for Mercedes, however, the German automaker isn’t alone in its endeavor. Mercedes partnered with Renault-Nissan in developing the X-Class, aided by Nissan’s long history with building metric-tonne pickups. In fact, the X-Class is based on the Nissan Navara NP300. But don’t expect warmed-up Navara leftovers with a three-pointed star tacked on. Mercedes says the X-Class has been groomed specifically for its luxury-minded clients. Changes include Mercedes-built powertrains, upgraded suspension components, unique bodywork, and a wholly Mercedes cabin inside. It’s doubtful even the simplest switches and buttons are borrowed from Nissan. Nevertheless, the X-Class benefits from the Navara’s fully boxed ladder frame, body structure, and five-link rear suspension – all of which are proven. Combine that with a high-end interior (hopefully with E-Class styling), and the X-Class should be a huge success. Sadly, Mercedes is not bringing the X-Class to North America – at least right now. Corporate bigwigs are still unsure about tackling the ultra-competitive American pickup market. Hopefully, that changes with Ford’s launch of the U.S.-spec Ranger in 2019.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Panamera Stingray GTR by TopCar

It’s been a while since we last saw a prominent aftermarket company develop a program for the Porsche Panamera. In fact, ever since the Porsche unveiled the second-generation Panamera this time last year, the tuning world has been surprisingly quiet on this front. Well, consider this one of the first tastes of a heavily modified, second-generation Porsche Panamera. And to the shock of no one, it comes from TopCar, one of the most prominent Porsche tuners in the business.

The Russian tuner has worked on Porsche models longer than most tuners have been around. It’s responsible for the Stinger program for the 911, the Vantage program for the Cayenne, and a host of other works for other Porsche models, including the Macan, the Boxster, and the Cayman. Now, TopCar is setting its sights on a next-generation program for the next-generation Panamera. The kit is what you’d expect from TopCar. It’s got extensive aerodynamics that borders on over-the-top. It’s got a lavish interior offering that includes all the premium materials a customer can think of, including 24-karat gold. And it’s got a significant engine upgrade. In other words, it’s a TopCar tuning kit for the Panamera that owners of the luxury saloon will have a hard time saying no to, provided that TopCar’s tuning methods are in sync with what they’re looking for.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Mulsanne by Mansory

You’d be hard-pressed to find a tuner that has embraced the outlandish more times than Mansory. Run down its catalog of past of works and they’re all there for you to see. There are the Siracusa kits for the Ferraris, the Carbonado kits for the Lamborghinis, and while I’m at it, remember the Bentley Continental Vitesse Rose from 2009? Yikes. As colorful as Mansory’s tuning history is, we can all agree that it makes the kind of statements that very few of its peers in the tuning game are able to do. Which is why it is a bit disappointing to find out that its latest program – one for the Bentley Mulsanne – came with a headline that begins with “subtle modifications.”

The words “Mansory” and “subtle” should be mentioned in the same sentence about as often as the words “Reliant Robin” and “reliable” are. And yet, here we are, presenting a Mansory program for Bentley’s luxury limousine that doesn’t quite feel like something that the German tuner worked on its tuning laboratory. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of fancy carbon fiber bits and pieces here and there. It even has a notable power upgrade, which is rare in the aftermarket scene for a car as massive as the Mulsanne. But since this is Mansory we’re talking about, there’s a level of audacious expectation that has to be met, one that I this program wasn’t able to reach. I don’t think it’s a sign that the tuner is slowing down on the imagination aspect of the game, so it does make me wonder if this is Mansory’s way of showing a side of itself that we rarely get to see.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Cayenne

Porsche ushered in the second-generation Cayenne for the 2010 model year, and by 2013 the Cayenne lineup had expanded to include hybrid and diesel-powered models. By the time we turned the calendar to 2015, it was time for the Cayenne to take on a facelift, bringing lots of visual changes to the exterior, updated powertrains, and several interior upgrades. Despite that extensive facelift taking place, Porsche has been busy developing the next-generation Cayenne, and we just received spy shots of it doing some cold weather testing with very little camo.

The most important thing about the next generation is that the Cayenne will be underpinned by the new MLB SUV platform that has already been used on the Audi Q7 and the Bentley Bentayga, which means we should see a significant drop in weight over previous models. Outside of the new platform, the Cayenne shouldn’t change too much. We expect so see more of an evolution of the current design language as opposed to a complete redesign, and we should see some updated technology on the inside.

We expect the new Cayenne to debut next year as a 2018 model, but with the new model already testing without Camo, we may see it sooner than later. Until we get more details about the next-gen Cayenne, let’s take a closer look at these spy shots.

Updated 07/14/2017: Our spy photographers caught a pre-production Cayenne
wearing basically no camouflage except for some camo-foil on the lights.

PostHeaderIcon Audi S7

The large, four-door hatchback or “Sportback” body is one of the coolest and stylish styles you can find. Prior to 2012, Mercedes was nailing the luxury Sportback niche with the Mercedes CLS Coupe. That dominating presence led BMW to develop the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe and Audi to develop the A7 Sportback. The A7 Sportback hit the scene in 2010 and the S7, a beefed up version of the luxury family hauler came two years later. Powered by a 4.0-liter V-8, the S7 is capable of hitting the 60-mph sprint in 4.3 seconds while looking good and hauling a couple of kids. The S7 went through an update for the 2015 model year, which means the spy shots you see here are our first look at the second-generation S7. Right away you can see some Audi Prologue DNA in there, and we’re betting that it will even pack a little more power too. But, more about that later.

While there is next to nothing known about the next S7, we’re just happy we’re getting a good look at it this early on. You can easily spot design cues from cars like the Audi Prologue Avant Concept, but this is the first time the S7 has been caught in the wild, so there’s still more to the car than what meets the eye. With that said, let’s dive on in and talk a little about what this model could bring to the table in the next few years.

Update 7/13/2017: The Audi S7 was caught putting in some more work during the warm weather in Europe. It hasn’t dropped much in terms of camo, but there are a few changes we can spot, so join us in the special spy shots section below to see them and learn more about the latest word surrounding the S7.

PostHeaderIcon Cadillac CTS-V Wagon

The Cadillac CTS was introduced back in 2002 as a replacement for the Opel Omega-based Catera, and since 2013 it’s being sold in its third-generation version. Much like its predecessors, the current CTS is also available in a performance-oriented CTS-V version. On the flipside, both the coupe and wagon were cancelled for the third-gen model, and there’s no sign that they will return anytime soon. But what if Cadillac would change its mind and produce a high-performance grocery getter?

I’m obviously talking about the CTS-V Wagon, the shortest lived version of the nameplate. First introduced in 2011, the CTS-V Wagon survived only until 2014, when Cadillac decided to axe it due to demand. The death of the CTS Wagon also marked the end of the last mid-size luxury wagon built in the United States, leaving only the Mercedes-Benz E-Class to compete in this niche. More recently, the Merc was joined by the new Volvo V90, but needless to say, wagon enthusiasts still don’t have too many options to choose from. So maybe it’s time Cadillac revives the CTS Wagon in both standard and V performance guises, especially with an updated third-gen sedan already in dealerships?

Established in 1994, Koenigsegg is already 23 years old as of 2017. And for a 23-year-old company, it has developed into quite the successful business. It all started with variations of the CC in the early 2000s and continued with the Agera in 2010. In 2015, the Swedish firm launched the Regera, its first ever hybrid. Come 2017 and Koenigsegg is working on brand-new vehicles, one of which is most likely a four-door sedan.

Although not yet confirmed for production, the sedan is more than a rumor, having been discussed by the Swedish brand in many interviews. While it made it pretty clear that it won’t build an SUV (for now), Koenigsegg did admit that a four-door sedan is in the making. Not only the company’s first vehicle that isn’t a supercar, but it could also be the first high-performance luxury sedan with close to (or even more than) 1,000 horsepower. There’s no information as to when the four-door will hit the market, but it’s unlikely that it will happen before the 2019 model year.
