PostHeaderIcon The 2019 Mercedes-Benz EQC Shows Off It’s Amazing Technology at the Paris Motor Show

One month after it made its official debut, the Mercedes-Benz EQC, the company’s first all-electric crossover, showed up for public display at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. Displayed alongside the new-generation GLE Class, the EQC has quite a few technologies to showcase in France.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 908 Works Short-Tail Coupe

The Porsche 908 is a prototype racer that competed in the mid- to late-‘60s and into the early-70’s, squaring off against some of the best of the best from the likes of Ferrari and Ford in numerous endurance racing events. Bearing an advanced aero package, an innovative flat-eight-cylinder engine, and a tenacious attitude, the 908 played a crucial part in Porsche’s racing development, and now sits as one of the more desirable collectible competition Porsches to go head to auction.

PostHeaderIcon Lancia Stratos HF Stradale

Let’s do a little thought experiment. Say you’re looking to create one of the greatest road cars in existence. Where do you start? The answer should be obvious – racing, or, more specifically, a homologation special. These are machines birthed from the womb of competition, tuned ever so slightly to meet the rules of the road and sold to mere mortals like you and me. The Lancia Stratos HF Stradale is one such vehicle. Plucked from the sideways insanity of the WRC, the Stratos comes from a time before AWD, a time when simple, brutal machines vied for supremacy by dancing on the limits of adhesion offered by the rear wheels alone.

The “HF” in the name stands for “High Fidelity,” Lancia’s go-to designation when it comes to its high-performance models, while “Stradale” is Italian for road, indicating the car’s street worthiness. Powered by a Ferrari-sourced V-6 and stripped down to only the bare essentials, the Stratos is often credited with changing the world of rally as the first car designed specifically for competition in the sport. Throw in the fact Lancia made nearly 500 examples for the road, and what you’re left with is a truly fantastic car.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R V-Spec

The GT-R V-Spec was the range-topping model of the R32-generation Nissan Skyline. Designed for homologation purposes in order for the R32 to compete in Group A racing, the GT-R was upgraded to V-Spec features in 1993. Production ended in 1994 with only a handful of V-Spec models built. Due to its massive success in the Australian Touring Car Championship, the R32 GT-R was nicknamed “Godzilla.”

Launched in 1957 by Prince, the Skyline nameplate started life as a rather common automobile. By 1969, it was sold as a Nissan and spawned a number of higher-performance versions, including the first GT-R model in 1969. The R32 arrived in 1989 when Nissan decided to drop every other body style save for the coupe and sedan. Nissan built almost 300,000 Skylines in five years, but only around 44,000 were GT-Rs. The V-Spec was produced in less than 2,800 units, making it one of the rarest GT-Rs ever. Beyond that, the V-Spec was one of the agilest productions cars on the race track back in its day. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Acura NSX

The iconic Acura NSX made a comeback in 2016, after a 11-year absence from the market. Powered by a hybrid drivetrain for the first time, the second-generation NSX just got better for the 2019 model year thanks to a comprehensive mid-cycle refresh.

Already a potent sports car, the Acura NSX now rides on a revised chassis that’s supposed to enhance agility on the road and track. Acura also made some design changes, but these are rather small and limited mostly to new color options. But the Japanese firm also added new standard features that cost more than the marginal price increase of the facelift. Find out more about that in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Rimac C_Two California Edition

Not content with blowing us away with the Rimac C_Two, the electric supercar brand took to the Peterson Automotive Museum to showcase a special edition version of the C_Two, called the California Edition. The limited-run electric supercar mixes all the mind-numbing features and qualities of the C_Two and adds room for…two champagne bottles. There’s no word yet on the availability of the C_Two California Edition, though expect it to be a tad more expensive than the $1.2 million standard version.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Divo

The Bugatti Divo is a track-focused version of the Chiron. It’s also the supercar through which Bugatti revived its coachbuilding tradition after seven decades. Although based on the Chiron, the Divo looks significantly different, boasting what appears to be a new design language.

The Divo isn’t Bugatti’s first attempt to turn the Chiron into a better car at the track. The Chiron Sport was the first to bring enhanced dynamics, but the Divo takes everything to a new level with significantly higher performance in terms of lateral acceleration, agility, and cornering. As Bugatti puts it, the Divo “is made for corners.”

Just like the Chiron, the new supercar is named after a famous Bugatti racing driver. This time around, it’s Albert Divo – a two-time winner of the Targa Florio race on the mountainous roads of Sicily in the late 1920s. Unlike the Chiron, which is limited to 500 units, the Divo will be built in only 40 examples. Let’s see what makes it special.

PostHeaderIcon Driving Meets Elegance and Comfort with these New Driving Shoes from Stefano Bemer

Legendary Italian shoemaker Stefano Bemer has launched a new line of custom-made, handcrafted driving shoes that ensure that our feet are wrapped in the most exotic of materials and still have the versatility and comfort to spend a day on a race track. The shoes, called the Gentlemen’s Driving Shoes, can also be designed to incorporate details of an owner’s own car into the custom footwear. Prices start at $600 for a pair, though in the age of customization, prices may vary depending on the financial mileage a customer can provide.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63

If the Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce Jota (SVJ) isn’t rare enough for you, you’ll be happy to know that a 63-unit Aventador SVJ 63 Special Edition is also available from Lamborghini. The rarer Aventador SVJ 63 carries that name as a nod to 1963, the year patriarch Ferruccio Lamborghini founded the company. Lamborghini has yet to release the price for the Aventador SVJ 63, but expect it to be heavier on the pockets compared to the $517,770 price tag of the “standard” Aventador SVJ.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari 488 Pista Spider

The Ferrari 488 Pista Spider joined the 488 lineup at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as a replacement for the 458 Speciale Aperta. The Ferrari 488 Pista replaced the iconic 458 Speciale, and it’s the first of its kind to hide a turbocharged engine under the hood.

Just when we thought that Ferrari settled for the Aperta name for its convertible sports car, Maranello returned to using the old Spider badge. But this is arguably a small issue here, as the Pista Aperta is just as exciting as its coupe sibling, but with extra headroom when the top is removed. The 50th drop-top model built by Ferrari since 1947, the Pista Spider made its global debut in the United States, where convertible sports cars are more popular than everywhere else in the world. Let’s have a closer look at the latest member of the 488 family in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Full Walkaround of the 2019 BMW Z4 M40i – Does the U.S.-Spec Model Make More Power?

The BMW Z4 has been in the news for as long as we can remember. Last week, the car was finally launched, and it took the automotive world by storm. The flagship product from the German automaker was the talk of the town for its looks, the Toyota-BMW collaboration, the launch event, and literally everything surrounding it. However, what caught our attention was the discrepancy in the American and European engine specifications. But before we get to that, let’s get to know the new Z4.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes EQ Silver Arrow

Mercedes has unveiled the Vision EQ Silver Arrows Concept, and it is a stunner. The concept is a feast for the senses, a product of Mercedes’ masterful use of its own heritage and reinventing it with a futuristic electric-jolted twist. As it is, the EQ Silver Arrow is a showcase concept — and what a concept, it is — that we’ll never see in production form. The good news is that the concept isn’t just a muscle-flexing design exercise, too. Parts of the concept will appear in Mercedes’ new electric brand offshoot, EQ. As to what those parts are? We’ll just have to wait and find out.

PostHeaderIcon The Salaff C2 Was Designed by the Same Guy Behind the Mazda3 and MX-5 Miata

The Salaff C2 turned a lot of heads at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, and for good reason as the model is the work of none other than Carlos Salaff, the American auto designer who’s responsible for designing the Mazda3, Mazda MX-5, and the Mazda Nagare and Mazda Furai concept vehicles. Years of working for a number of established automakers led Salaff to create his own supercar company. The first product to roll out of this new niche firm is the Salaff C2.

PostHeaderIcon Audi PB18 e-tron Concept

In a world where the term “concept car” has been overused to some extent, Audi jolted some life back to the phrase with the PB18 e-Tron Concept. The fascinating prototype made its debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, blending form with a number of functions, packaged in a dynamic design that’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen from Audi. Best of all, at least for snobs of the autonomous technology movement, the PB18 e-Tron Concept gives the driver full control of the vehicle with no hints of autonomous tech assistance.

PostHeaderIcon The SSC Tuatara is a 1,750-Horsepower Beast With an Eye on 300 MPH and a Thirst for E85

Remember the Tuatara, the concept car that SSC North America, formerly known as Shelby SuperCars, unveiled in 2011? The supercar finally made its debut in production form at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and it seems to deliver exactly what SSC promised seven years ago.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Aventador SVJ

The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the most powerful and aggressive version of the company’s flagship supercar. The car that bears the iconic Jota suffix, which was first used on the Miura, made its debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as the fastest production car on the Nurburgring as of 2018.

The first Lambo to carry a “Jota” badge since the Diablo, the Aventador SVJ is essentially a beefed-up version of the SV. But it’s not just faster and more powerful, it’s also more aerodynamic, as it benefits from the Aerodynamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) system. First introduced on the Huracan Performante, ALA is a range of active aerodynamic features that turn the already potent supercar into a road-legal race car. Alongside the SVJ, Lambo launched a limited-edition SJV 63 model that pays homage to the company’s founding year of 1963.

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Huayra Gyrfalcon

Pagani dropped a surprise at “The Quail — A Motorsport Gathering” event over the weekend when it unveiled the latest special edition Huayra Roadster, called the Gyrfalcon. Named after the White Gyrfalcon, the largest of all falcon species, the Huayra Roadster lives up to its namesake with a color scheme that matches the majestic colors of the bird of prey. The Pagani Huayra Gyrfalcon is a one-off model, and there’s a good chance that it already has an owner.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari Celebrates its 50th Drop-Top Model With The 488 Pista Spider

Ferrari has unveiled its 50th drop-top model in the company’s history, called the Ferrari 488 Pista Spider. Essentially a convertible version of the 488 Pista, the Pista Spider packs all the potency of its coupé counterpart and wraps it up in a mesmerizing road-legal drop-top supercar. Ferrari hasn’t said how much the 488 Pista Spider will cost but expect it to be more expensive than the $350,000 488 Pista.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Z4

The third-generation BMW Z4 combines styling features seen on the Z4 Concept from 2017 and the flagship 8 Series Coupe. The roadster broke cover at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in M40i trim.

After more than three years of speculation, which included rumors that the roadster might be renamed, the third-gen Z4 made its public debut exactly 30 years after the first Z1 car went into production in 1988. Unveiled at same location as the Z4 Concept in 2017, the third-gen Z4 replaces a seven-year model that was past its prime. Drawing cues from both the Z4 Concept and the 8 Series, the new Z4 raises above the competition in just about every department. Details are still under wraps as far as drivetrains and technology goes, but we can finally take a closer look at the roadster.

PostHeaderIcon The Acura NSX Just Got a Lot Better for 2019

Acura has put together a serious update for the 2019 Acura NSX that includes an updated chassis for better handling, new interior and exterior colors, better software calibration, and $4,700 worth of previously optional equipment as standard.
