PostHeaderIcon 2018 Chicago Auto Show – Worst In Show

Truth be told, this year’s Chicago Auto Show brought out a lot of good stuff. We even cataloged the best of the best right here in a convenient list format, just in case you wanted to see what we’re on about. But, given CAS’s positioning between the Detroit Auto Show and Geneva Motor Show, events considered to be two of the most important auto shows in the domestic and international markets respectively, there’s always bound to be a few throwaway debuts in Chi Town. And that’s exactly what we saw in 2018, where the big makes brought out disappointments that included an update which was basically a rehash, plus a pair of yawn-worthy new crossover trim levels. Hell, there was even an entire booth that had us scratching our heads as to why it was there. So put on your troll face and click on as we explore the worst in show at CAS 2018.

The “New” Fiat 500


Fiat Adds Turbo Fun Across The 500 Lineup At Chicago Auto Show - image 766486

There’s a lot to like about the Fiat 500. It’s small and stylish, with just the right measurements and aesthetic to tackle the rigors of urban driving. So when Fiat announced it was bringing the turbo 1.4-liter MultiAir engine to the entire 500 line, our first reaction was a positive one. Because of course, who wouldn’t want forced induction motivation on a platform like this, right? After all, it works so well for the Abarth…

“As it turns out, the turbo four-banger in question is actually four years old, first dropping on the 500 Turbo model back in 2013.”

Not so fast. As it turns out, the turbo four-banger in question is actually four years old, first dropping on the 500 Turbo model back in 2013. Output is more or less identical to what we saw back then, topping out at 135 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. Granted, that’s a massive 34 ponies and 52 pound-feet over the naturally aspirated powerplant it replaces, but it leaves us asking why Fiat didn’t just keep the turbo ’four as standard from the start.

To compound the issue, Fiat says the new 500 arrives with a “sportier appearance,” but we’re struggling to see it. Sure, there’s a few tweaks to the front and rear fascias, new fog lamps, and a subtle roof spoiler, but to our eyes, it’s pretty much the same Italian sub-compact we’ve seen in the past.

At least it still sounds great, right?

Read our full story on the turbo 2018 Fiat 500C.

Chevrolet Traverse RS


Chevy Traverse RS Looks Like The Better Daily Driver In Chicago - image 766314

Over the course of the past few years, Chicago has established itself as a popular venue to debut both new trim levels and new crossovers. With the Chevy Traverse RS, we got both.

This latest RS kicks off with the traditional round of black trim upgrades, including dark finishes for the grille, window surrounds, and roof rails. In the corners, you’ll find 20-inch wheels in a Dark Android gun metal finish. All told, the aesthetic changes improve the look, although we’re struggling to figure out why Chevy didn’t offer it like this from the factory. Strike one.

While the new trim bits are to be expected, Chevy also felt the need to introduce a new turbocharged engine spec with the model. Mounted under the hood is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 257 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, with output routed through a nine-speed automatic transmission, all of which hits the ground through the front wheels exclusively. Compared to the 3.6-liter V-6 option, that’s a gain of 29 pound-feet, but a loss of a whopping 53 ponies. Strike two.

“Compared to the 3.6-liter V-6 option, that's a gain of 29 pound-feet, but a loss of a whopping 53 ponies.”

In our opinion, the new engine definitely makes the Traverse RS a better daily driver, but at the end of the day, there’s really nothing sporty at all about this mid-size SUV. In reality, it just feels like Chevy is changing up the configuration and adding performance cues to see if it can squeeze out a few more sales, and that’s a strike three. Instead, we think the Bow Tie should reserve the RS “Rally Sport” connotation for its more exciting models. We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again – adding black trim does not make something a sports car!

Ford Edge Titanium Elite


The 2019 Ford Edge Gets Gussied-Up Titanium Elite Trim in Chicago - image 766219

Following the reveal of the performance-minded Edge ST in Detroit, Ford brought out a new trim level for the popular crossover in Chicago, introducing a prim and proper luxury version dubbed the Titanium Elite. Updates include further body-colored trim pieces, a “premium” skid plate, and unique 20-inch wheels. There’s also a few bits and bobs in the interior as well. The rest of the mechanical spec goes unchanged.

It definitely makes sense. After all, Ford has seen an uptick in top-trim level sales as of late, so why not just add another option for consumers to pick through? Thing is, we’re not really digging the Titanium Elite. The upgrades are just so, well, lame – I mean, a premium skid plate? Seriously? We all knew the vast majority of off-roader design cues on modern SUVs and crossovers were nothing more than aesthetics, but this is getting out of hand, don’tcha think?

The Entire Maserati Booth


Maserati's Chicago Booth Is as Boring as it Gets - image 766545

Auto shows are expensive, but if it means getting a ton of eyeballs on a new product, the high costs might be worth it. Unfortunately for Maserati, the Italian brand really hasn’t had anything new to offer since it revealed the Levante SUV at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2016. Regardless, Maserati still felt it was necessary to attend Chicago with its full lineup.

Seriously, why even bother to show up, Maserati? We’ve already see all these things before, and the updates you’re touting as model refreshes are so small, we can barely even notice them. To be honest, you’re copping this haughty, Ferrari-esque attitude, which would be fine if, you know, you were actually Ferrari.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Chicago Auto Show – Best In Show

Tucked between the domestic frenzy that is the Detroit Auto Show and the international insanity of the Geneva Motor Show, the Chicago Auto Show (CAS) is a bit of an oddball on the auto show circuit schedule. Despite this, CAS is still the best-attended auto show in the States, regularly drawing over a million attendees ready to feast upon a cornucopia of fresh metal. Once again, the automakers have obliged, offering up a healthy selection of debuts for the new year, and in response, we’ve assembled a list of the best from this year’s Chicago Auto Show right here for your enjoyment. In addition to the latest production models and updates, we also threw in some highly desirable upgrades and even a few random old-school rides to ogle along the way. Read on for more.

Volkswagen Arteon


Volkswagen Arteon Finally Makes U.S. Debut in Chicago! - image 766399

First seen at the Geneva Motor Show last year, the Arteon is now arriving stateside with a debut at the Chicago Auto Show. Offered as Volkswagen’s latest upscale compact sedan, the Arteon gets a four-door fastback profile that’s loaded with tons of little visual details, which is quite the departure from the ultra-understated aesthetic we usually get from the German automaker. Under the skin is the latest MQB architecture, while a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder is added under the hood. Output is rated at 270 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. Inside is a premium interior, with top-shelf materials and an Audi-esque layout. Tech like a digital cockpit, a heads-up display, and a 9.2-inch infotainment screen with gesture control make the list of optional equipment.

“The Arteon is among the coolest cars there and a bit of a surprise,” says TopSpeed’s Ciprian Florea. It’s not often we enjoy VW’s efforts in this segment, but this time, we think the brand did it right.

Factory Options That Kick Ass And Won’t Void Your Warranty


2018 Chicago Auto Show – Best In Show - image 767227

Vehicle customization is as popular as ever, and Chicago drove the point home with a variety of tricked-out trucks and SUVs in Chicago – all with factory-approved parts that won’t void your warranty.

First up is a new lift kit from Nissan, which adds inches to the ride height of its Titan and Titan XD pickup trucks. The kit comes from Icon Vehicle Dynamics, a well-known parts maker in the off-road community, and it boosts the Titan a full 3 inches when it’s all said and done. You can have it installed right at your local Nissan dealer in about four hours, and it comes with adjustable coilovers, custom rod end bearings, and special upper ball joints. What’s more, it’s all bolt-on components, so you can swap it out if you decide to sell your truck or give it up at the end of your lease.

Up next is a slew of upgrades from Mopar, which debuted new parts for the Dodge Durango SUV and Ram 1500 pick-up truck in Chicago. The Ram showed its stuff on the show floor with a 2-inch lift, huge wheels and tires, new fender flares in flat black, a cargo system up top, and a step-up at the side, plus all-weather mats in the cabin matched with Katskin leather upholstery.


4 Things to Know About Mopar's Improvements to the 2018 Dodge Durango - image 766632
“And given Mopar is Chrysler's go-to go-faster division, you better believe Chicago brought a splash of extra performance stuff as well.”

The Durango three-row SUV also gets leather upholstery (either in red or in black), as well as soft-touch surfaces throughout, plus carbon fiber trim. Outside, you’ll find a set of racing stripes in one of five colors, which really enhances the SUV’s visual aggression.

And given Mopar is Chrysler’s go-to go-faster division, you better believe Chicago brought a splash of extra performance stuff as well, including lowered suspension bits for the Durango that cut 0.6 inches from the ride height, and a high-flow exhaust that’s sure to add a nice throaty growl out back. The same goes for the Ram, which gets a new intake and exhaust, all in the name of extra aural pleasure and a few newfound ponies to boot.

Toyota TRD Pro Lineup Gets Some Love


2018 Chicago Auto Show – Best In Show - image 767226

Toyota also got in on the off-roading fun in Chicago, offering up a variety of updates to its TRD-branded trucks and SUVs. Previewed prior to the show by a single pic depicting a dusty, snorkel-wearing Tacoma blasting through the dunes, Toyota brought along new gear for the Tundra and 4Runner as well.

Unfortunately, the Taco was the only model of the three to get the snorkel, which is great for enhancing river wading depth, but also is used to keep the intake away from the dirt and grit that has a habit of flying around when attacking the great outdoors.

Still, we like what we see from all three of these vehicles. The big-ticket items are the new 2.5-inch Fox shocks, which come with piggyback reservoirs in case the trails gets really rough. With the new parts installed, the Tacoma gets a 1-inch lift, plus specs like three rebound and five compression zones in front, and four rebound and seven compression zones in the rear.

Meanwhile, the Tundra gets a 2-inch lift and up to 2 inches of extra suspension travel as well. Rounding out the package are new skid plates and upgraded high-intensity headlights.

Of course, it bears mentioning that Toyota might have some hard-hitting competition just over the horizon. “Toyota made waves updating the TRD Pro line,” says our resident truck expert Mark McNabb, “but none of them can compete with rivals like the F-150 Raptor, the Jeep Wrangler, the Chevy Colorado ZR2, or the upcoming Ford Ranger Raptor.”

Ya hear that Toyota? Consider the gauntlet thrown.

Hyundai i30 N TCR Race Car


The Hyundai i30 N Comes to the U.S., But Only as a Race Car - image 766294

This wouldn’t be a true TopSpeed Best of List if we didn’t include at least one ridiculously fast machine, right?

Taking the honor this time around is a pumped-up Hyundai hatchback, which looks ready to roll and take on all challengers in the Touring Car Racing class of the Pirelli World Challenge race series this year. The story is that Hyundai is teaming up with Bryan Herta Autosport to sponsor a pair of racers in the popular series, and as such, this thing is nothing less than a full competition-spec racer. It’s got a stripped-out interior, a full roll cage, enormous rear aero, slick-shod lightweight wheels, and a fire extinguisher system as well. Making it go is the same 2.0-liter four-banger you’d find in the road car, but this time around, it comes with a re-tuned ECU and supporting mods, all of which conspire to crank up output to 350 ponies, far exceeding the 271 ponies you get in the top-trim road car. Routed through a six-speed sequential gearbox, you can bet this thing is an absolute rocket ship.

Unfortunately, Hyundai isn’t offering the i30 N to stateside consumers, but hopefully its presence in the TCR class will inspire customers to explore the brand’s sportier side.

1968 Subaru 360


Subaru Celebrates 50 Years In The U.S. Market With Special Editions, But We're Digging This 360 Instead - image 766826

Yeah, we know this isn’t exactly a “fresh debut,” but we just had to include it in this list. Why you ask? Well, just look at it! The Subaru 360 is one of the six-star brand’s very first products and its 12 different shades of weird. For starters, it’s tiny, with dimensions that’ll make a modern Mini double-check the nearest mirror. It’s also got suicide doors and a curb weight of just 900 pounds. Hell, when it arrived in the States, it was even advertised as “Cheap and Ugly.”

We could go on and on about the quirkiness of the Subaru 360. It’s a true oddball, and because of that, we love it.

The Original Batmobile


We Found a Bunch of Cool Classic Cars at the Chicago Auto Show - image 766846

Consider this an extra double bonus for ’ya. Straight out of the ’60s, it doesn’t get much more iconic than the original Batmobile. Designed by the legendary George Barris, this black-and-red crime fighter is actually an adaptation of a Ford concept car called Lincoln Futura, which was created ten years prior by Ghia of Italy. Fast forward to 1965, and as ABC was gearing up to shoot the show, it needed a proper car to do so. The network went to Barris to accomplish the task, but with only three weeks to complete the project, he decided to reuse the Futura, which he happened to purchase from Ford for $1, and the rest is history.

Stay tuned for a full written review on this awesome machine. Same TopSpeed time, same TopSpeed channel!

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Detroit Auto Show – Worst In Show

Overall, we’d argue that the 2018 Detroit Auto Show was a success, bringing us a well-rounded package of debuts that catered to just about every automotive taste out there. We saw slick hot hatchbacks like the 2019 Hyundai Veloster N, ground-pounding trucks like the 2019 Ram 1500, and tire-shredding muscle machines like the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt, not to mention a few attractive concepts as well. You can read our full list of Best In Show entries here, but as you might expect, not all the debuts were winners this year. Some, in fact, were just awful. As such, we’ve compiled the worst offenders right here for your collective shaming and derision, highlighting back markers such as a poorly executed design study, one of the biggest grilles we’ve ever seen, a haughty European snub, and a few other less-than-exciting reveals.

Granted, a few of these gripes aren’t even about the cars themselves, but rather, the way in which the model was presented. Nit picking? Maybe. Or maybe we’re right on target. Tell us which is which in the comments section below, and don’t forget to post your picks for the worst from Detroit!

Nissan Xmotion Concept


New Nissan Xmotion Concept Is A Mess Of Different Ideas - image 758928

Kicking off our list of worst from Detroit is this mess of ideas from Nissan dubbed the Xmotion Concept. Nissan says it’s pronounced “cross motion” (instant point deduction there) and that it’s meant to combine “Japanese culture and traditional craftsmanship with American-style utility,” plus a dab of new technology features as well. It’s an interesting proposal, but in the end, the execution has our heads spinning (and not in the good way).


New Nissan Xmotion Concept Is A Mess Of Different Ideas - image 758670
“The interior of the Nissan Xmotion is like a hurricane of unfinished thoughts.”

Here’s our problem with the Xmotion Concept – it tries to do way too many things at once, and in the end, it accomplishes nothing. The interior in particular is a good example of this. The colors are all over the place, and the seats look like wicker furniture from the year 3030. Then you’ve got this enormous wooden center divider that looks like someone’s using the concept to haul lumber, plus a wood dash that looks like it wasn’t completed on time. Of course, the raw aesthetic can work from time to time, but here, it just looks unfinished. Then there’s the swimming fishes in the screens (so now it’s a koi pond?), the silly square steering wheel, and oh yeah, it’s also autonomous or something.

The exterior is a bit better, but even so, we don’t really know what’s going on. At first glance, it looks like an off-roader thanks to the proportions and big tires, but then you’ve got the carbon fiber bits and lowered stance, adding to the confusion with sporty cues. There’s also a retractable roof box up top, which, I dunno, does something.

All in all, the Xmotion Concept has the focus of a cake-fueled ADHD 8 year-old at Chuck E. Cheese’s. Settle down, Nissan.

The Grille On The 2019 Toyota Avalon


The New Toyota Avalon Is Basically A Grille On Wheels - image 759821

If you were anywhere near the Cobo Center in Detroit over the last few days, you’d be hard pressed to miss this. Say hello to one of the biggest grilles we’ve ever seen, plus a bit of 2019 Toyota Avalon bolted around it. Toyota first got into this “bigger is better” attitude about seven years ago with the Lexus Spindle Grille, and now, the design cue is making its way to the rest of the automaker’s stable.

And for all you Toyota fan boys out there, please note that when we put the new Avalon on this list, we’re specifically referencing its ginormous grille. The rest of the car is fine – it’s got some cool techy bits, a handsome interior, and it promises some great value for the money. That is, if you can walk by the front end without having everything on your person sucked into another dimension through the gaping maw plastered across the bumper. Seriously, we’re pretty sure this sedan needs a few extra horsepower to overcome the added gravitational force created by that grille.

2019 Lamborghini Urus At MOCAD


Feeling Special: Lambo Unveils Urus at Museum of Art, Ditches Detroit Auto Show - image 760453

Lamborghini initially unveiled it’s first entry in the SUV segment last month, and when we got eyes on it, we were impressed. And who wouldn’t be? It looks great, just like a modern Lambo should, and best of all, it’s got the oily bits to match the aggressive exterior. Under the hood is a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 making as much as 650 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque, good enough for a run to 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds. It’ll also reach a top speed of 186 mph. All good, right? Right. However, the Urus’ North American debut simply reeked of pretentiousness, as I’ll now explain.

Rather than parking the SUV on a stage at the Cobo Center like every other automaker, Lambo decided to drop the Urus 3 miles away at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD). Look, Lambo, we like the design you got going for the Urus, and we’d maybe even consider adding it as a wallpaper for our desktop background, but making the debut in MOCAD? Really? Please excuse the eye rolling. We’d much prefer it if you just brought it to the auto show directly, rather than pulling the sheets at a museum like it was some incredible new sculpture. This isn’t a breakthrough piece of social commentary. It’s an SUV.

Read our full review of the 2019 Lamborghini Urus.

2019 Volkswagen Jetta


2019 Volkswagen Jetta - image 760128

Before you VW fan boys start ripping into us, I’ll just start by mentioning that there are a few things we like about the Jetta. The interior, for example, looks pretty okay, and we like the fact the model is getting a little less expensive this time around. However, the rest of it is very much the “same bratwurst, different length” approach we’ve seen across the Volkswagen Auto Group stable.

left
right
“Audi A4 shown on the left, Volkswagen Jetta shown on the right. Not that it really matters.”

So, what’s the story here? Is VW just gonna do the same exterior design forever? It would certainly seem that way if you compared the “new” Jetta with the rest of the automaker’s lineup. Seriously, you could slap a four-ring badge on this thing and no one would be the wiser. Or, as our man Ciprian Florea *** https://www.topspeed.com/authors/71636/ *** says, “Compact VW with an Audi rear end and BMW-inspired beltline? No thank you, I’ll have a Caesar salad instead.” You madman!

2019 BMW i8 Coupe


BMW Debuts “New” i8 Coupe and the First i8 Roadster - image 748161

Look, we know we put the i8 on our list of “Five Cars From BMW, Volkswagen, And Mercedes You Won’t Want To Miss In Detroit” , and if you’ve never actually seen this spaceship in person, that still holds true. However, we’re more than a little annoyed BMW keeps bringing the i8 to car shows and acting like it’s seen a bunch of improvements in the past 3 or 4 years. It hasn’t. Basically, this is the same i8 that dropped in 2014, and while the hybrid powertrain and carbon fiber construction and sci-fi styling are still pretty cool, we’ve been anxiously awaiting an actual update for the thing. And no, that doesn’t include a special limited edition color, or new wheel design, or 3 extra all-electric miles. We’re talking about a brand-new engine tune, fresh styling, and some breakthrough technology. Give us that, then bring it to an auto show, ’mmkay?

“Almost no upgrades at all,” says Ciprian. “BMW has been trolling us with ’new’ and ’special’ i8s throughout 2017 as well. It has to stop!”

Agreed.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Detroit Auto Show – Best In Show

With the arrival of the new year comes all kinds of fresh opportunities. While some folks decide to learn a new language, or maybe start hitting the gym a little more, or possibly get the hell off Facebook, the turning of the calendar is a great time for new beginnings. The same is true for the auto industry, with a variety of new entries for the 2019 model year making their way onto our radar. The latest and the greatest just made their appearance in Michigan and the North American International Auto Show, or, as it’s more popularly known, the Detroit Auto Show. TopSpeed was on the scene to capture all the good stuff, and we’ve got it all compiled right here for your perusal and enjoyment.

Included is a fresh hot hatch import, a domestic speed machine, a bad ass new truck, and a few slick concepts as well. Per usual, we wanna know your picks for the best and brightest from Detroit, so go ahead and post those opinions in the comments section below!

2019 Hyundai Veloster N


Hyundai Veloster Brings N Performance to U.S. for 2019! - image 758650

We’re suckers for a sweet hot hatchback, so we just had to include the new go-faster Veloster on this list. This latest from the South Korean brand is the first N model destined for stateside consumers, which, if you’re unaware, means its the first U.S. model tuned by Hyundai’s in-house performance division. Stuffed into the front end is a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, all of which reaches the front wheels by way of a close-ratio six-speed transmission. There’s also an electronic front differential, a fully independent sport-oriented adjustable suspension system, and multiple drive modes to make the most of it. It’s also got standard 18-inch wheels and available 19’s, plus big brakes too. Not only that, but we think it looks great, offering an aggressive three-door aesthetic that’s sure to turn a few heads. And with a price tag somewhere around $25,000 to $30,000, it’ll even look good on your bank account, too.

Read our full review of the 2019 Hyundai Veloster N.

2019 Ram 1500


All-New 2019 Ram 1500 Steals The Show at Detroit - image 758544

From small and quick, to big and powerful, we have the next entry on our list of the best from Detroit – the new-and-improved Ram 1500. The latest update brings the popular workhorse into the modern day with a host of new technology, while still keeping all the traditional values intact. Outside, you’ll find tweaked exterior styling that looks fresh yet classic, with a wide demeanor and slimmer headlights. It’s smarter too, with an active air dam that helps the front end cut down on aero drag, helping out with the overall efficiency in the process. Step up into the cabin, and you’ll find a newly upgraded interior that’s now more comfortable thanks to extra space in the crew cab model, as well as a large 12-inch touchscreen on the dash. Under the skin is a new frame that’s 100 pounds lighter than before, with 225 pounds cut from the curb weight overall. A new suspension as well as optional air components manage the heft, and a fresh 4×4 off-roading package is offered on each of the individual trim levels. There’s even a mild hybrid system for the various V-6 and V-8 engine options.

2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt


The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Is Custom Exterior Done Right - image 760009

Well of course we had to include at least one muscle car, right? After all, this is Detroit…

Our pick for best American Iron at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show is the Blue Oval’s latest homage to the 1968 Steve McQueen classic Bullitt, a film that gave the world one of the most memorable car chases to ever hit the silver screen. At almost 11 minutes in the length, the sequence portrays a high-speed battle between a green Ford Mustang and a black Dodge Charger, with the heroes and villains going at it on the streets of San Francisco with plenty of tire-squealing goodness and high-flying stunts.

All told, we think the 2019 Bullitt looks awesome, arriving in Motown draped in a stellar shade of Dark Highland Green and sporting fully debadged body panels for an exceptionally sleek look. It’s also got classic 19-inch “torque thrust” wheels and oodles of complementary black trim, plus a wingless rear end to top off that perfectly McQueen-esque laconic style. Inside, the Bullitt’s interior is a nice fusion of new and old, with retro cues mingling with modern tech like a 12-inch LCD infotainment screen. And of course, this machine has loads of performance to back the aesthetic, rocking a 5.0-liter V-8 under the hood making “at least” 475 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, which is good enough for a top speed of 163 mph.

Infiniti Q Inspiration Concept


Infiniti Q Inspiration Concept Points To Future Of Infiniti's Design Language - image 759105

Following a series of teasers and close-cropped preview images, Infiniti dropped cover on its latest design study in Detroit this year. Dubbed the Q Inspiration, it looks to preview a possible forthcoming Q90 flagship sedan from Nissan’s luxury brand, and we think it looks great, with velvety, sultry lines that blend into a shape that’s both sporty and refined. The hoodline is long, while the cab is set back in the profile, giving it those classic GT proportions we all know and love. The headlights are thin, carved into the front fenders and drawn back from a large, squarish front intake. The wheels are funky and big, while the interior is equally gorgeous, coming proper with a two-tone color scheme and a modern design approach for the layout and seats. No word on what’s providing the motivation, but we’re thinking electric power would make a whole lotta sense. Either way, if this is the direction Infiniti is heading, we say full steam ahead.

Lexus LF-1 Limitless


The Lexus LF-1 Limitless Is the Ultimate Luxury Crossover - image 758456

Our final entry on this list is another import concept, this time around from the luxury brains at Lexus. Believe it or not, its an SUV body style that’s bringing the goods, and as our man Ciprian Florea points out, “Gorgeous design. I can’t believe I’m actually nominating a crossover.”

We hear ya, Ciprian, but this thing is definitely worthy of the honor. The exterior is big and bold like a proper SUV should be, but at the same time, it manages to bring some nice, sharp design elements that lend it a futuristic high-tech vibe perfectly in tune with the times. Hell, it even manages to make that enormous spindle grille in the nose look at home. The story continues inside, where we find a handsome layout that combines dark gray, white, brown, and copper colors in just the right quantities, plus well-positioned infotainment screens and glittering panels for the door inserts and center console. It’s also bringing a few cool tech ideas to the party, such as a chauffeur mode and four-dimension navigation.

PostHeaderIcon Looking Forward: Five SUVs That Will Hit the Streets This Year

With 2018 now officially upon us, it’s a great time to look ahead in anticipation of all the great rides set to make their way onto public roads for the very first time. As such, we put together a quick list of five SUVs to look out for in the new year.

Continue reading for our list of five SUVs that will hit the streets this year.

Jeep Wrangler


2018 Jeep Wrangler - image 741966

With its recent debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, the new-gen JL-series Jeep Wrangler heads to dealers a little later this month, which means we’ll soon see this refreshed off-roading legend prowling the streets. We like the new Wrangler so much, we gave it a spot on our Best Vehicles of the Year list, and we think buyers will agree – with new powertrain options, the latest tech in the cabin, and every bit of the older model’s capability in the rough stuff, this one is shaping up to be a quite the tempting buy.

Read our full review on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler.

Lamborghini Urus


2019 Lamborghini Urus - image 749815

In a big break from tradition, Lambo is applying its go-fast knowledge and outlandish design chops to the SUV segment, giving us this – the new Urus (yeah, we know all about the LM002, but it was neither quick nor did it look like a proper Lambo). The Urus definitely has the sharp lines and geometric shapes we’d expect from the Italian Raging Bull, while under the hood, the SUV gets a 4.0-liter V-8 stuffed with boost by a pair of turbochargers. Top speed is rated 190 mph and the 0-to-60 mph sprint is done in about 3.5 seconds.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan


2018 Rolls-Royce Cullinan - image 621476

As another newcomer to the SUV segment, Rolls-Royce’s approach differs from Lamborghini’s, focusing on lavishness and opulence as opposed to flat-out speed. Inside, we’re expecting a layout similar to such outstanding luxury barges as the Phantom, plus there should be V-12 power for motivation. Pricing will be deep in the six-figure range – we’re guessing a figure around $350,000.

Audi Q3


2019 Audi Q3 - image 675226

Full details are still forthcoming, but so far, the new Q3 is looking like it’ll be quite a solid crossover for the latest model year. Expect updated MQB underpinnings under the skin, as well as tweaked exterior styling and a full line of diesel and gasoline engine options to complement, not to mention the latest and greatest safety tech.

Volvo XC40


2018 Volvo XC40 - image 733015

The Swedes have really been on a roll lately, and the XC40 looks to continue that momentum with an entry-level compact offering oodles of style and comfort. Look for handsome design for the techno-infused soft-touch interior, while the engine selection will include a turbocharged four-cylinder in a variety of tunes.

PostHeaderIcon New Year’s Special: Best Vehicle for Party Hopping

Traditionally, New Year’s is about spending time with family and friends. It’s about social gatherings, where many people dance, eat, drink alcoholic beverages, and watch or light fireworks at midnight. But some people spend the night traveling from house to house to attend more than just one party. It’s called party hopping, and it can be a great deal of fun if you’re not into spending the entire night indoors. But while spending time with family and friends indoors doesn’t require much planning beyond shopping and cooking, spending New Year’s Eve the party hopping way requires a car. And, a large one I may add because people are usually doing this in larger groups.

Yes, that’s what this New Year’s special is all about: the perfect car to spend New Year’s Eve on the go.

Spending the entire evening on the road with friends means you need a vehicle with plenty of seating. Luggage room shouldn’t be an issue since there’s not much to haul around, but I’m ruling out sports cars and vehicle that can’t provide seating for at least five people. The more, the merrier seems to be the essential rule of party hopping, so don’t look for McLarens and Ferraris on this list. Now let’s have a closer look at the options below.

Continue reading for the full story.

Chrysler Pacifica


2017 Chrysler Pacifica - image 661192
“The Pacifica provides seating for up to seven people”

Yes, minivans are the first vehicles that come to mind. They provide seating for several people and they’re relatively comfortable. There are plenty of options available out there but I went with a classic, the Chrysler Town & Country. Okay, so the Town & Country is no longer into production, but the Pacifica is essentially the same thing. Now with a modern exterior design and state-of-the-art tech inside the cabin, the Pacifica provides seating for up to seven people. I’d say seven people on the go are enough to get a party started. The Pentastar V-6 engine is plenty powerful at 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet to get the vehicle moving when fully loaded and there’s even a hybrid version that will help you keep fuel costs down. But the Pacifica comes with one downside. Chrysler has yet to introduce an all-wheel-drive option so things might become tricky if you get a lot of snow on New Year’s.

Chevrolet Express / GMC Savana


2013 Chevrolet Express - image 509053
“The Express is one of the roomiest passenger vans out there”

Yes, the Chevrolet Express is a dinosaur that was launched all the way back in 1995 and gained a facelift in 2003. But despite being a few good decades old, the Express is one of the roomiest passenger vans out there, offering seating for 12 people in standard guise and 15 with the optional seats. Sure, it’s actually a truck rather than a van, and it can be noisy and not too comfortable, but it’s a good option is the weather is bad due to its ride height and powerful engines. And it has some modern tech too, like a rear vision camera and built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi. If you don’t fancy the Chevy badge, you can always go for GMC’s equivalent, the Savana.

Chevrolet Spark


2016 Chevrolet Spark - image 625059
“An option for the smaller groups”

Yes I know, jumping from the massive Express to the tiny Spark is awkward to say the least, but I’m including this car here as an option for the smaller groups. And why the Spark and not a different subcompact you ask? Simple! This tiny Chevy comes standard with a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot. Even in its most affordable trim. Being so small, there’s nothing much you can do inside the cabin, especially when all five seats are taken, so you can at least entertain yourself until you reach the next destination.

Toyota Sequoia Limited


2008 Toyota Sequoia - image 213843
“The Sequoia is the perfect vehicle if you want a proper rear-seat entertainment system”

Speaking of in-cabin entertainment, which is crucial if your party hopping even includes traveling long distances, the Toyota Sequoia seems to be the perfect vehicle if you want seating for eight, good shoulder and headroom, and a proper rear-seat entertainment system. The Japanese SUV comes with a nine-inch flip-down screen, a Blue-Ray unit, two wireless headphones, an audio system, a 115-volt AC power outlet, and two RCA jacks. The only downside is that you can only get these in the from the options list, but at least the Sequoia is more affordable than the Land Cruiser or the Cadillac Escalade. Of course, all-wheel-drive and all-terrain capability are a given.

Tesla Model S


2017 Tesla Model S - image 672438
“The only sedan that can provide seating for more than five people”

The Model S needs no introduction. It’s all-electric, it’s powerful, and it’s fast. What’s it doing on this list? Well, it’s basically the only sedan that can provide seating for more than five people. Specifically, you can add two more seats behind the second row. Sure, these are actually located in the trunk, and their rear-facing layout is far from ideal, but hey, you can travel with six more friends without having to burn gasoline or diesel in a big van or SUV. You also get all-wheel-drive to help you avoid getting stuck in the snow. And, you can brag about how you’re helping reduce greenhouse gas at the dinner table.

Chevrolet Brookwood


New Year's Special: Best Vehicle for Party Hopping - image 754726
“The Brookwood had had three benches for a 3+3+3 configuration”

For my the next car on my list, we’re going to forget about 2017 and travel back to the late 1950s. That’s when Chevrolet introduced the Brookwood, a station wagon that shared underpinnings with the more iconic Bel Air, Impala, and Nomad. Don’t worry if you haven’t heard about it. This car was built from 1958 to 1961 only and then briefly revived from 1969 to 1972. The cool thing about this Chevy is that it came with a third-row seat option, which increases seating capacity from six to nine. Yup, the Brookwood had had three benches, including the one up front, for a 3+3+3 configuration. And that’s exactly why I’m including on this list. It’s more compact than a van, but it has room for nine. Granted, it’s a few decades old, and you might have trouble starting the motor if temperatures are below zero, and it might not be the best vehicle to drive in the snow, but you’d look really cool in it. And given the huge wheelbase and the wide body, there’s plenty of room to throw a party inside before reaching the next destination.

Volkswagen Bus


New Year's Special: Best Vehicle for Party Hopping - image 754727
“The Volkswagen Bus is the ultimate party hopping van”

Known as the Type 2, T1, Transporter, Microbus, and Camper, the Volkswagen Bus is the ultimate party hopping van. It might not have all the fancy technology and convenience features, but it has that special vibe. Call me a hippie, but I’d take a Bus over a modern SUV or van any day of the week. And, before you call it small and cramp, the Bus is can provide seating for up to 12 people, so it’s second only to the massive Chevrolet Express on this list. There is a downside though, it’s four-cylinder engines are tiny and not so powerful, so your party won’t move between houses too fast. But hey, it was good enough for The Who. And Scooby Doo.

Your Choice?

So, are doing any party hopping this year? What vehicle are you using? Let me know in the comments section below!

PostHeaderIcon Thanksgiving Day Special – 7 Cars We’re Thankful For

Sometimes, it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle of daily life, and in the process, forget about all the good things you’ve got going for you. Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on those blessings, providing an opportunity to be grateful for what you have. For us car lovers, 2017 brought all kinds of new stuff to be thankful for, with a bevy of outrageous hypercars to drool over and bench race. As such, we’ve put together a list of cars we’re thankful for right here for your enjoyment.

While 2017 certainly brought the goods in terms of high-end performance, we had to toss in a few other models as well, ya know, just to remind us how truly fortunate we are. And, per usual, we wanna know what cars you’re thankful for. It doesn’t have to be some top-shelf, 250-mph insane-o machine. Perhaps you’re thankful for your trusty daily driver, which reliably ferries you to and fro without issue. Let us know in the comments. And oh yeah – Happy Thanksgiving!

Hennessey Venom F5


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742052

Introduced late last month at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, the Venom F5 is a follow-up to Hennessey’s epic Venom GT, and like its predecessor, the F5 aims for no less than the title of fastest production car in the world. And while the specifics of that goal are a bit, uh, murky (will Hennessey make enough examples to qualify the F5 as a production car?), the specs on this thing are reason enough to make us grateful it exists. Power comes from a new twin-turbo V-8 (a Hennessey specialty), which throws down 1,600 horsepower and 1,300 pound-feet of torque at the rear wheels. The Texas tuner is shooting for 300 mph at the top end, and although we have yet to see this thing running in the real world, we think it’s worthy of praise all the same.

Tesla Roadster 2.0


2020 Tesla Roadster - image 746101

Tesla has a habit of stirring the auto industry pot with its claims, and its latest debut is like a high-speed blender in that respect. Unwrapped in a surprise reveal alongside the automaker’s new electric semi truck, the Roadster 2.0 is a follow-up to Tesla’s very first model, and it’s upgraded in just about every way imaginable. Not only does it look fantastic, but under the sultry body panels is a 200-kWh battery and three electric motors, good enough for 620 miles of range between plug-ins. Impressive, no doubt, but the California automaker is also saying this thing will be the first production car to go from 0-to-60 mph in less than 2 seconds. Top speed is rated at over 250 mph, which would also make it the fastest production EV ever made. Granted, we’re still several years from seeing these claims verified, but we’re happy Tesla is back to shaking things up.

Aston Martin Valkyrie


Aston Martin Valkyrie Is Getting Ready For Its Close-up - image 722990

Good things happen when motorsport tech finds its way onto the street. Case in point – the Aston Martin Valkyrie. Offered as a collaborative project between Aston and Red Bull racing, the Valkyrie was created with technical input from Adrian Newey, one of the most successful engineers from the world of Formula 1, and the results are staggering. Advanced aerodynamics and composite materials form the base, while a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 hybrid makes over 1,000 horsepower, blessing the machine with a 1-to-1 power-to-weight ratio.

Mercedes-AMG Project One


2020 Mercedes-AMG Project One - image 730644

Speaking of Formula 1, Mercedes-AMG has its own take on bringing top-echelon performance to the street. It’s called the Project One, and it’s got lots of the same stuff as Lewis Hamilton’s ride. That includes a mid-mounted turbo and hybrid 1.6-liter V-6 that zings all the way to 11,000 rpm, making over 1,000 horsepower along the way. It’s also got adaptive aero and adaptive suspension, while AMG carbon brakes haul it down.

Aston Martin Vantage


2018 Aston Martin Vantage - image 746486

Might as well toss in something a bit less outrageous in this list. While it might not have four-figure output numbers or record-setting speed, we’re still very thankful for the new second-generation Vantage. I mean, just look at it! It’s got the goods inside to match too, while under that lovely hood line lies a turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 making more than 500 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque to feed the rear wheels. This is the kind of car that’ll make you feel like a secret agent, and for that, we’re grateful.

Koenigsegg Agera RS Sets New Top Speed Record


2015 Koenigsegg Agera RS - image 657709

While bold claims from the manufacturer about what a car can do can be fun, the real good stuff happens on pavement. Koenigsegg knows this, and amidst claims of “300 mph” this and “0-to-60 mph in 1.9 seconds” that, the Agera RS proved its mettle by going 277.9 mph. On a public road, no less. Earlier this month, the Swedes got special permission from the Nevada Department of Transportation to test the top speed of the Agera RS, and in the end, Koenigsegg walked away with a new world title.

McLaren F1


1993 McLaren F1 - image 674548

When you break it down, most of the cars on this list owe much of their greatness to this – the McLaren F1. Released in the early ‘90s, the F1 blitzed the competition with a series of firsts. Not only was it the first production car to come equipped with a carbon fiber monocoque chassis and exotic materials like magnesium and titanium, but it also managed to go an astonishing 240 mph in the top end. It held the record of fastest production car on Earth for nearly a decade.

PostHeaderIcon High Rollin’: Five Sports Cars You Can Buy For Less Than The Price Of Tires for the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo

Remember the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo Concept? I’m sure most of you do because it’s on the short list of most incredible reveals in 2017. It’s essentially a more hardcore version of the Bugatti Chiron, and there’s only one of its kind in the world. Yes, it’s a legitimate one-of-one. It also happens to be super expensive and in the short life that it’s had, it’s already been owned by two people. Prince Badr bin Saud of Saudi Arabia was the hypercar’s original owner, who bought it from Bugatti for an undisclosed sum that’s rumored to be in the ten-figure range. It didn’t take long, though, for the Vision GT Concept to change owners as the one-off has found its way to the US courtesy of its new owner in Los Angeles.

As important as those things are, I’m here to talk about a startling discovery about the Vision Gran Turismo, and as some of you might expect, that “discovery” is related to its tires. Apparently – prepare to sit down for this one – a new set of tires for the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo costs $93,000. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that’s $93,000. No typos. No misprints. No nothing. $93,000 for a set of tires.

Granted, it’s not out of the ordinary for the tires of Bugatti’s supercars to fetch insane amounts. A set of brand-new tires for the Veyron, for example, costs around $50,000 and a similar set for the all-new Chiron is actually a bargain at just over $40,000. But the Vision GT Concept trumps both of them, and it’s not even close. The price for a set of new tires for the concept is so preposterous that I’ve actually managed to come up with a list of sports cars that you can buy brand new for less than the price of the Vision GT’s tires. This is the auto world we live in now, folks. Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that it’s dripping in absurdity.

Lexus LC 500


2018 Lexus LC 500 - image 710874

Let’s start with a little Japanese flavor courtesy of Lexus and its newest GT sportster, the LC 500. There’s a lot to love about the LC 500, and it all starts with its looks. It may not be for everyone, but the striking styling dynamics of the LC 500 means that it’s a magnet for attention. It also features a well-prepared 5.0-liter V-8 that produces 467 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque. All that power is then sent to the rear wheels courtesy of a newly developed Aisin 10-speed automatic transmission, which in turn allows the LC500 to hit 60 mph from an idle position in just 4.3 seconds before setting off on a top speed run that could peak at about 180 mph. I’m not as giddy about the fact that the model starts at $92,975, but at that price, you’re still looking at one of the best GT sports cars in the world. Don’t believe me? Take one out for a spin, and you’ll be shocked at how remarkably crisp and agile it is for a Lexus. I know from experience.

Mercedes-AMG C 63


2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 - image 569747

From one of Japan’s finest sports cars to one of the most established sports cars from Germany comes the Mercedes-AMG C 63. Some of you are probably wondering why I chose the AMG C 63 in favor of something like the AMG E 63 S. The latter, for one, clocks in at a price of just over $100,000 so it doesn’t qualify in comparing it to the $93,000 it costs for the Vision Gran Turismo’s four tires. The important answer though is pretty simple: value for your money. This is what the AMG C 63 has over its E 63 counterpart. Not only does it boast of AMG’s famous 5.5-liter, biturbo, V-8 engine, it’s also good enough to produce 503 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers are good enough to post a 4.0-second sprint to 60 mph. And, with features like a three-stage stability control system, an electronic limited-slip differential, and brake-based torque vectoring, it’s hard to think of the AMG C 63 as a run-off-the-mill sports car. It’s far from one, to be exact, and with a price that starts at $81,775, it’s a huge steal relative to what it’s capable of doing.

Chevrolet Corvette Z06


2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 - image 538131

I can’t imagine how four pieces of tires can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in three seconds by themselves. Can you see that happening? I didn’t think so. That shouldn’t be a problem though for the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, regarded today as the most powerful road-going Corvette ever built. It may be a sports car by segment definition, but rest assured, it packs supercar-like powers, thanks in large part to a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine that packs a meaty 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. Not only does it rival the power produced by models like the McLaren 650S and the Ferrari 488 GTB, but it also costs just $83,995 in its base trim. Go for the whole enchilada and you’re looking at a price that approaches $100,000. The loaded version of the Corvette Z06 may be a little more expensive than the Bugatti Vision GT’s tires, but the things you can do with the ‘Vette – specially with that manual transmission in tow – far outpoints anything you can do with the Vision GT’s tires.

Cadillac CTS-V


2016 Cadillac CTS-V - image 599734

Let’s continue with the American performance car theme and present to you one of the most underrated performance machines to come out of our shores: the Cadillac CTS-V. While it’s true that it doesn’t get the publicity that some of its contemporaries get, the CTS-V is a load of a machine in it of itself. For instance, it makes use of a massive 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine that spits out 640 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. Those are Corvette Z06-like numbers for a performance sedan. That’s impressive stuff, especially when you consider that even with its relative girth, it can still sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds before peaking at a top speed of 200 mph! 200 mph! Here’s the best part: you can get all of that for just $83,995, leaving you with a little under $10,000 in spare change compared to the set of tires for the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo Concept.

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon


2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon - image 729193

$84,995. That’s how much it’s going to cost you to buy a muscle car that produces a whopping 808 horsepower and 717 pound-feet of torque. I could leave it at that, but the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is worth mentioning because all that power translates to a 0-to-60-mph time of just 2.3 seconds, making it arguably the fastest-accelerating production car in the world. I don’t know if the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo can eclipse that number, but merely posing the thought means that the Challenger SRT Demon is worth the price of what you’re going to pay for it.

PostHeaderIcon Bring Them Back: Five Automakers We Want To See Make A Comeback

The auto industry can be a ruthless business. A handful of automakers have witnessed this first-hand and, far too often, the consequences have been devastating. In the best of cases, a company can weather the storm of mediocrity until it finds its footing again, whether through its own perseverance or simply getting a lifeline in the form of another automaker. Volvo knows this more than anyone now that it’s thriving under Geely ownership after years of uncertainty. That said, not everybody is as lucky as Volvo. Countless automakers have bitten the dust over the years for one reason or another, be it because of managerial ineptitude or simply not being able to keep up with its rivals.

This list is an ode to those companies. It’s made up of automakers whose returns to the industry we pine for to this day. It’s not a guarantee that we’re going to get our wish and see these brands get resurrected, but we can still dream. Either way, there’s nothing to lose as far as wishing upon a star is concerned, right?

Duesenberg


1929 Duesenberg Model J Disappearing Top Torpedo Convertible Coupe - image 663535

We’re starting this off with probably the reach-iest of reaches: Duesenberg. Some of you can be excused for not knowing Duesenberg, but for those who have a recollection of the once fabled American manufacturer, it starts to reason that there’s no better time than today for the marquee to make a comeback. It is unfortunate that Duesenberg’s rise to the top of the luxury car market in the 1920’s was severely undercut by the Great Depression. But, it’s also a testament that a company that prided itself on eye-wateringly expensive bespoke creations lasted as long at did. At its apex, Duisenberg was the creme de la creme of the auto industry. It had a range of cars, including the fabled Model A and Model J units that became symbols of power, wealth, and everything in between. But, alas, the luxury brand eventually met its demise in 1937 after being around for just 11 years. We’ve never heard from it again, at least with the exception of the rare occasions when one of the old Duesies find their way to the auction block. It’s a testament to the legacy of the brand that a 1931 Model J Tourster by Derham actually sold for $1.32 million at RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction in 2017. Given the current landscape of the luxury car segment, a returning Duesenberg would certainly give Bentley and Rolls-Royce a lot of sleepless nights.

Plymouth


1970 - 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda - image 569395

Now, this is a brand that a lot of you are familiar with. One of the many interesting things about Plymouth is that it actually started around the same time as Duesenberg. But whereas Duesie primarily catered to the elite of American society in that era, Plymouth was on the opposite end of the social spectrum. It was, for all intents and purposes, Chrysler’s budget brand, a high-volume powerhouse that not only withstood the Depression, but also World War II. The brand even found its glory years in the 60s where it created some of the most memorable muscle cars in American automotive history, including the legendary Barracuda and the equally iconic Road Runner. It’s hard to piece together the events that led to Plymouth’s demise, but a combination of aging models and products that became indistinguishable from those offered by Dodge and Chrysler played big roles in Chrysler’s decision to bring the company to the woodshed. We’re going to keep playing this game of “what-if” a lot on this list, and it’s no different here for Plymouth.

Imagine, then, a scenario wherein the company resurfaces and takes aim at the Ford Mustangs and Chevrolet Camaros of the world. Of course, it probably won’t happen given Chrysler’s current state of affairs, but with all the technology and Hemi-powered engines in place (a Barracuda SRT Demon sounds delicious!), now’s as good a time as any to call for the return of Chrysler’s old heavy hitter.

Mercury

Just as Chrysler had Plymouth, Ford had Mercury. You can make some interesting parallels between the two defunct auto brands, but what’s really interesting about Mercury was that it actually lasted as long as it did despite being treated as nothing more than a go-between in the Ford and Lincoln hierarchy. The truth is that Mercury probably didn’t receive as fair of a shake as other automakers, especially in the latter years of its life when it was basically ignored to the point of irrelevancy. Its death in 2011 barely registered a blip in the auto news cycle of the time, adding to how unfavorably a lot of people remember it to this day. Rest assured though, at the height of its powers; Mercury was a force to be reckoned with. Models from the 1950s and 60s remain quintessential in the lore of pop culture, particularly the likes of the Montclair, Park Lane, and the timeless Cougar. The Cougar may have been a restyled version of the Mustang that put more emphasis on comfort and equipment than outright performance, but it’s a testament to its popularity in those days that production of the model actually lasted 34 years, the second-longest of any Mercury model next to the Marquis. The likelihood of Ford bringing Mercury back today borders on the improbable, but if there is a brand that deserves to get resurrected for the simple fact that its legacy carries some weight to it, there’s probably one or two nameplates I’d pick from Mercury.

Notable models

Saab


2008 Saab 9-X BioHybrid - image 235258

Saab is probably the most talked-about cautionary tale about an automaker going under in recent years. It’s certainly one of the most high-profile brands to get the death knell when General Motors sold it for scraps back in 2010 to Spyker, which proceeded to do next-to-nothing with it since then. I will admit that Saabs were never the best cars to begin with. Some even stunk to the point that revisiting them becomes an exercise in torture. But, just as many as there were, there was also a handful of them that have become classics in today’s parlance. The 900 and 9000 models, in particular, are held in high esteem, particularly the way they were engineered to have seemingly endless volumes of space and cargo. The 9-X model also showed some promise, though it probably arrived ten years too early at a time when alternative fuel sources were still being discussed inaudibly in boardrooms. I’d venture a guess that if Saab were still around today and managed to parlay the 9-X into a better model than it turned out to be, we’d be discussing it as one of the pioneers in hybrid technology. But, that’s not how the cookie crumbled for the Swedish automaker. Adding to the disappointment is the fact that it’s original parent firm, Saab AB, continues to thrive to this day as an aerospace and defense company. If only more attention were paid to Saab when it was around. That not only goes to its OG parents but General Motors as well. Maybe history would’ve been different, and Saab would still be around today. Oh, well. There’s always hoping for a comeback at some point in the future.

Pontiac


2006 Pontiac Grand Prix - image 35951

Of all the brands on this list, this one is still the one that rankles my nerves the most. We give so much credit to Ford and Chevrolet for giving rise the muscle car segment that we tend to forget that a big part of the credit should also go to Pontiac. Cars like the Trans Am, GTO, Grand Prix, Fiero, and Firebird were revered for a number of different reasons, but the most common of them was for their sheer power and performance. Pontiac is also credited, or at least should be credited, for being one of the most prominent American marques of the 20th century. That’s no exaggeration when you consider the fact that the company can trace it roots back to the 1920’s, or around the same time that Plymouth and Duesenberg started.

Unlike those two, though, Pontiac eventually became synonymous for its performance cars with the GTO still considered as one of the finest examples of American muscle in history. Personally, the Pontiac Firebird remains my all-time favorite American performance car, largely because it parlayed its success into a starring role in the Knight Rider series. That’s all Pontiac. Ultimately, the brand suffered a similar demise as the one that cut short Duesenberg’s life. The American recession in 2008 forced General Motors to cut ties with some of its brands, and with Pontiac becoming stale at that time, it was deemed the most expendable.

Ask me which car brand I’d like to see come back and my answer is as fast as it is easy: Pontiac. Just leave out the Aztec from those comeback plans, and we’re good.

PostHeaderIcon Oh, Canada: 8 Cars That Trace Their Roots To The Great White North

Most of us think of Canada as our friendly neighbors up north, and while that holds true for the most part – Canadians are really friendly – the Great White North also has a rich automotive history of its own. Ok, not as rich as ours, but rich enough to be given a list of some cars that trace their roots up there. The fact is that Canada’s automotive history goes all the way back to around the same time that cars became a thing here in the US. We just don’t know about most of them because there’s enough to worry about as far as our own American brands are concerned.

That’s one of the reasons why this list is being made. Canada is more than just a land of moose and maple leaf syrup. It’s also home to a rich automotive tradition that deserves to have the spotlight fixed in its direction, for however long it’s supposed to last. Some of the names and models on this list will be completely foreign to some of you, but that’s precisely the point. It’s time to give them the recognition they deserve for playing a part in creating and shaping the history of the Canadian auto industry. Oh, and stick until the end because there are some surprises along the way.

Continue after the jump to read the full story.

Volvo 122

The first car on this list actually has its roots in Sweden, but its story is unique for a number of different ways. Some of you will probably remember the Volvo 122, which made it to north America through Halifax, Nova Scotia where Volvo established a production facility. The first car it built there? The 122 sedan, or as it’s called in other markets, the Amazon. Today, the 122 is regarded as one of the best models Volvo ever made. In Canada though, it was referred to as the Volvo Canadian, and soon enough, the fascination between car and country took hold. That relationship has stood strong despite the fact that the last 122 left the production plant in Halifax in 1998. Make no mistake, Nova Scotia is proud of its industrial identity, and one of the biggest reasons of its pride is because of the 122.

McLaughlin-Buick

Ever heard of McLaughlin? You can be excused if you haven’t because the company’s history dates all the way back to 1869. Yep. 1869! It first started as a carriage company but as the automotive history evolved in the early 20th century, McLaughlin soon became involved, together with then-independent company Buick, in the creation of what we now know as General Motors. Owing to its Canadian roots, McLaughlin was eventually absorbed into General Motors Canada where it sold models in Canada under the McLaughlin-Buick name until 1942. Beyond its fabled history, McLaughlin was a popular luxury brand back in its heyday, and no less than the Prince of Wales purchased one of his own in 1936. Three years later, McLaughlin once again got involved with the Royal Family when a pair of 1939 Phaetons were built exclusively for the Royal tour. It’s hard to come by any existing McLaughlin-Buicks today that are in working condition, but one was put up for sale a little more than a year ago on the Bring a Trailer website.

Lada Niva

To be clear, the Lada Niva wasn’t produced in Canada, nor was it born there. But I’m including it because it’s one of those cars that has became a staple for Canadians who wanted to get their chops off on the off-road. Just as important, buying a Niva here in the US is about as rare as scoring a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Over the years, the Russian-built Niva has been called many things, but the one underlying theme about it that has transcended time is its toughness and ruggedness. Simply put, the Niva is indestructible and it has been since it was launched in Canada in 1977 as a compact hatchback. It’s hard to imagine, but the Niva is actually still in production to this day and even more incredible, it’s looks have barely changed in 40 years. Go to Canada now and you’re likely to find a Niva on the streets there. That’s a testament to the car’s status as pound-for-pound being one of the toughest cars to kill.

Mercury M-100

Just so you know, the next two items on this list are pick-ups that some of you might be familiar with. The first of these two models is the Mercury M-100, which is essentially a Ford F-Series pick-up that was badged as a Mercury model specifically for the Canadian market. Why exactly did Ford do this? Well, the answer goes back to 1946 when Ford of Canada decided to split its dealership networks into Ford and Lincoln/Mercury. It didn’t have any issues offering pick-ups in their Ford dealerships but the split meant that Lincoln/Mercury dealers lost out on pick-up truck sales. The solution? Use a Ford F-Series, take off its Ford badge, and replace it with a Mercury badge. The result is the M-100, a pick-up that was in production from 1946 to 1968. It didn’t last as long as Ford’s F-Series, which soldiers on to this day, but it did leave an important mark in the history of Canadian pick-ups. And, if for nothing else, seeing a Mercury nameplate on a Ford model resonated for some people.

Fargo

Ford wasn’t the only American automaker that had to make the decision of splitting its dealership network in Canada. So, Chrysler did what Ford did and split its Chrysler-Plymouth dealerships. On top of that, Chrysler also dusted off Fargo, a truck brand that it took ownership of in 1928, six years after its original owners went under. The brand itself didn’t fare well under Chrysler stewardship, barely lasting a decade before it was discontinued in the US for good. That, of course, didn’t stop Chrysler from transporting the name to Canada where it became its official pick-up trucks in the north. The Fargo trucks were simply rebadged Dodge trucks that were sold in the US, but the strategy of replacing the nameplate with Fargo turned out to be a stroke of good fortune for the American automaker as the brand lasted in Canada for another three decades before departing the market in 1972.

Frontenac

Ford’s history in Canada is actually steeped in rich history, provided you know where to look. A good example of that history is Frontenac, a stand-alone brand that Ford decided to bring to Canada just so its Mercury-Meteor dealerships had a compact car to sell. Unlike Mercury, Frontenac was created as a separate division. Frontenac models that were sold in Canada were rebadged models of the Ford Falcon, albeit with a different grille, tail lights, and external trim. Regardless of what made it what it was, Frontenacs eventually became the second-best-selling compact car in Canada in the one year that it existed. Wait, what? Yes, Frontenacs lasted only a year despite the fact it sold almost 10,000 units in that short time. It’s unclear why Ford decided to ditch it prematurely – it was replaced by the Mercury Comet – but it did make its mark in the Canadian market, however long it lasted.

Acadian Canso

By now, you’re probably noticing a trend here. An American automaker can’t sell a certain model in Canada so, instead, it decides to make a new one for that market, essentially making it a substitute car for the real thing. The Acadian Canso somewhat fits that mold because it was born from the Auto Pact (APTA) that was enacted in Canada at that time. The law had certain provisions, including one that called for the prohibition of sales of certain US-made cars so as they don’t compete against models being offered in Canada. For its part, GM somehow circumvented that rule by offering certain makes of car that were not only made in Canada, but sold there as well. That’s where the Acadian Canso fits into all of this. It was largely based on the Chevy II, but to make it more “original,” GM decided to use styling cues from Pontiac in the car’s design. In any case, the Canso proved to be a top-seller in Canada during the time it was sold there. Even today, the Canso’s reputation has held strong to the point that they’ve become collectibles in their own right. Adding weight to that sentiment is the fact that five years ago, Barrett-Jackson actually auctioned off a 1966 model for $73,700.

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Wait a second. Why is the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon included in this list? The answer actually isn’t in the car itself as it is in the place where it’s built. For that, we can turn to the Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s production facility in Brampton, Ontario, Canada for the answer. Yes, the Challenger SRT Demon may be as all-American as it gets for a performance car, but it’s roots – same as that of every single Dodge Challenger, Charger, and Chrysler 300 that’s been built since 2008 – is tied into the suburban city located in the Greater Toronto Area. It may not seem like a relevant detail today, but just as the other cars on this list have been identified for their ties in Canada, so to will the Challenger SRT Demon when we revisit this list 50 years from now.

PostHeaderIcon Bargain Buys: Performance Cars That You Can Score For Less Than $50,000

Times like this, picking a sports car can get a little tricky, especially when money is no object. The range of options cuts across different segments and if you really want to make an impression, the cost of getting one could run up in the seven figures. But for those who don’t have the proverbial “unli-funds” at their disposal, buying a sports car becomes a little bit more difficult. For one, a large number of options are pulled off of the table because of their costs. Then there’s the prospect of availability.

But there is some good news. Just because money’s tight, doesn’t mean that the market becomes slim pickings. Far from it actually. Just lower those expectations, and you might find themselves having more than enough options to consider. And, since we’re in the business of helping others out, we’ve put up a list of some sweet performance rides that buyers can score for less than $50,000. I’m purposefully leaving out performance hatchbacks out of this list because they’re an entirely different category of their own. So we’re going with coupes and sedans, some of which can go as cheap as $20,000 while others can max out at or near the $50,000. The point is that they’re affordable and can put buyers one step closer to finally scoring that long-awaited performance car purchase.

Ford Mustang GT

Price: $35,095

Still one of the best values in the market today, the Ford Mustang remains one of America’s most popular performance cars for good reason. The latest version of the iconic pony car can still get the job done on the performance end. It has 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque on tap courtesy of a 5.0-liter turbo V-8. It can hit 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and do 0 to 124 mph in 13 seconds at 112 miles per hour. And don’t mistake its 164-mph top speed for a slouch. The Mustang is all business, all the time. It’s also one of the most customized cars in the business today so buyers who want to get a little extra on the ’Stang GT can still do so without burning holes in their bank accounts. Best of all, the Mustang GT starts at just $35,095, though if that price is still too steep, there is an option to get the base ‘Stang version, which starts at $25,585.

Chevrolet Camaro SS

Price: $37,995

Any mention of the Mustang must be followed by a mention of the Chevrolet Camaro. There’s no rule against it, but the two have become synonymous with each other that referring to one without the other is like talking about pizza without cheese and pepperoni. In any event, the Camaro SS checks all the same boxes that the Mustang GT does. It’s capable of producing 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers allow it to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and 0 to 124 mph in 12.3 seconds at 116 mph. And if you’re comparing the Mustang GT with the Camaro SS, know that the latter can also hit a top speed of 165 mph. The Camaro SS is a little more expensive at $37,995, but again, if that’s too expensive, there is an option to get the base Camaro for just $26,900.

Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack

Price: 41,090

I was tempted to put the Dodge Challenger in here to complete the muscle car troika, but I ultimately opted to go with the Challenger’s performance car sibling, the Dodge Charger. It’s not just the Charger too; it’s the Charger R/T Scat Pack, the gnarly variant that features a 485-horsepower 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine. Its power output is complemented by a 475 pound-feet worth of torque, allowing it to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 4.6 seconds, 0 to 124 mph in 16.1 seconds, and 0-to-a-quarter-mile in 12.6 seconds at 111 mph. Top speed has been rated at 160 mph, making it as potent as any “affordable” sports car in its segment. It’s priced at $41,090, which is a little pricier than the Mustang GT and the Camaro SS. There’s still no shame in getting the Charger R/T Scat Pack, though if the move is to only get a base version, the 292-horsepower base SE trim starts at just $27,995.

Subaru WRX STI

Price: $36,095

Let’s switch things up by featuring one of the best performance imports to come out of Japan: the Subaru WRX STI. It’s not the range-topping model – that would be the WRX STI Limited – but it’s arguably the best value for a customer’s money. Power comes from a 2.5-liter boxer four engine that pumps out 305 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. That allows the performance sedan to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 160 mph. It may not be the performance treat that it once was, but with extra features like limited-slip differential and torque vectoring, it’s still good enough to make for a memorable ride without buyers having to worry about explaining how much they spent for it.

Alfa Romeo Giulia

Price: $37,995

Want something that’s new and different? Well, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is as good a choice as any. It may not have as much power and performance as the muscle cars on this list, but it still features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit that produces 280 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque. Those figures translate to a sprint-to-60-mph time of just 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 149 mph. The numbers back up what would be a solid purchase, especially when you see that the cars the Giulia directly competes against are much more expensive than the Alfa. Take the BMW 340i for example. It has the numbers edge on the Giulia –
320 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque – but it’s also around $10,000 more expensive.

BMW 340i

Price: $47,900

Speaking of the BMW 340i, the performance sedan still falls under the $50,000 threshold so technically; it qualifies on this list. And why wouldn’t it? If you had the budget, this is the BMW to get. There are cheaper Bimmers available, but the value for money is best on this variant of the 3er. It carries a lot of the elements of the 3 Series and packages all of it with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine that produces 320 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. Those figures help carry the 340i to an acceleration time to 60 mph of just 4.8 seconds. Just as important, it’s quarter-mile time was clocked at 13.3 seconds at 106 mph, close to what the Mustang GT and Camaro SS are capable of. All of that for a car with a BMW badge at a price that barely reaches $50,000? Seems like a good deal to me.

BMW M240i xDrive

Price: $46,450

If you’re itching for a version of BMW’s M division, the best you can do at this price range is the M240i xDrive. Don’t be disappointed though because this coupe is very capable in a lot of different ways. It features the very best of BMW design, has advanced safety and performance techs, and is crowned by a 3.0-liter inline-six engine that produces 340 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers are a good way to get from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds to go with a top speed of 155 mph. There is a way to get the price down to just $44,450 – a $2,000 savings – but that would mean opting out of Bimmer’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system. That may be a good option for those who want a challenge out of their M240is, but I’d still suggest getting the xDrive unit just to make it worth the purchase of the sports coupe.

Audi S3

Price: $42,900

For the record, if there was one model that I’d suggest a buyer gets from this list, it’s the Audi S3. I’m particularly impressed by how the S3 looks. Credit to Audi in that regard because it has managed to make its design language look applicable across its entire range. It doesn’t matter if its the S3 or the S7, the genetics of Audi styling is present in all of them. On top of that, the S3 is also a capable performance sedan, thanks in large part to a 2.0-liter turbocharged TFSI four-cylinder engine that’s good for 292 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. It’s a little short of what the BMW 340i can produce, but the S3 makes up for it with a sprint-to-60-mph time of 4.7 seconds, 0.1 seconds quicker than the 340i. Just as impressive is the fact that the S3 can also cover a quarter-mile distance in just 13.3 seconds, exactly the same as its BMW counterpart. Top speed is also rated at 155 mph, so the Audi sedan doesn’t suffer in that regard either. All that and you have a car that’ll only cost you $42,900.

Price: $48,700

If power is the be-all and end-all of your purchase preference, there’s no better sub-$50,000 purchase than the Infiniti Q50 Red Sport. There’s a lot to like about the Q50 Red Sport. For one, it’s a range-topping model, which means that it boasts of every available technology that Infiniti is using for the Q50 line. There’s also something to be said better-than-expected design. It’s not as sporty-looking as the Audi S3, but there is a nice balance to its sporty design that also hints at a premium look without one trait drowning out the other. Oh, and as far as performance sedan goes, the Q50 Red Sport’s 400-horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque output puts it in a league of its own as it offers the most power for a car of its size that costs under $50,000. All those ponies waiting to be unleashed can moveQ50 Red Sport spring from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds on its way to reaching a quarter-mile distance in 13 seconds at 109 mph.

Bargain Buys: Performance Cars That You Can Score For Less Than $50,000 - image 682576

Prices: Toyota 86 ($26,255) / Subaru BRZ ($30,515)

I debated on whether I should put these two cars on this list because quite frankly, they’re still a disappointment to me. But I am compelled to talk about them regardless because they do return good value for the price. Both the 86 and the BRZ only produce 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque, but the catch is with these two is that they look like proper sports cars and they perform like one too. The 86, for example, can hit 0 to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 147 mph while the BRZ can cover the same ground in 6.6 seconds before maxing out at a similar top speed. The best part about these two models though is that they’re cheap relative to the cars on this list. The 86, for example, sells for just $26,255 while the BRZ’s top-of-the-line 2.0 Yellow Series variant starts at just $30,515. As far as value for money, these two sports coupes are as good as anything you can get without having to pay a fortune for either one of them.

PostHeaderIcon Gone In Three Seconds: The 10 Fastest Cars To 60 MPH

Porsche 911 Turbo S - 2.9 Seconds

If you haven’t noticed yet, then you might start doing so now. We are in the golden generation of performance cars, and with the way the auto industry is unfolding before our very eyes, there is a hint of irony in the thought that we’re still a long way away from seeing the end of this blitzkrieg era. These days, supercars are being built at such a rapid pace that a six-year-old Lamborghini Aventador is already considered a “senior citizen” in the ranks, and the more exotics we get, the more these performance records will go by the wayside.

Take the all-too-important “acceleration time” as an example. We all know it to be the time it takes for a car to hit 60 mph (or 62.1 mph – 100 kph) from a standstill position. The 1995 McLaren F1 brought supreme importance to this performance time when it did it cleared a 60-mph sprint in 3.2 seconds more than two decades ago. Today, a 3.2-second, 0-to-60-mph car doesn’t even make it in a top 10 list of fastest accelerating cars. That’s not to say that the F1 is old news because that supercar, together with the Ferrari F40, will always be the industry OGs. But, the advent of the supercar era has also ushered in machines that are hair-raisingly fast to the point of disbelief. In line with that alarming realization, we’ve prepared a list of the ten fastest-accelerating supercars in the market today, ranking them from “slowest” to “quickest.

Continue after the jump to read the full story.

Prepare yourselves if you’re driving any one of these cars

A few qualifiers before we start. I tried to make this list as comprehensive as I can, but obviously, there will be some supercars that will be left out, intentionally or otherwise. Rest assured, if you have the numbers to make it to this list, there’s a good chance that you’re going to be mentioned at some point. Ok, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s begin.

10) 2.9 seconds – Porsche 911 Turbo S / Lamborghini Aventador / Nissan GT-R NISMO / Ferrari F12tdf


2017 Porsche 911 Turbo - image 658139

2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 - image 738951

It seems fitting that we’re starting the list of at 2.9 seconds, isn’t it? A three-second, 0-to-60-mph sprint time is so 2011, so let’s leave them out of the picture entirely. There’s also a little bit of hilarity in the fact that it didn’t take me long to make a mess of my list. But hey, these four exotics deserve equal mention because they’re all mental in their own unique ways. Nissan does get special mention because of how far it’s come in the supercar world. There was a time not too long ago that mentioning Nissan in the same breath as Ferrari, Porsche, or Lamborghini would’ve drawn some giggles and side-eyes. Not anymore, folks. All because Godzilla remains a force to be reckoned with in the supercar industry.

9) 2.8 seconds – McLaren P1


2014 McLaren P1 - image 494154

It didn’t take long to get our first hypercar in the mix. The McLaren P1 shares more than just a name with the legendary F1. Both are also lightning quick on the block. The P1, in particular, can do it in 2.8 seconds, all thanks to a hybrid powertrain that combines to produce a staggering 903 horsepower. Here’s a little-known tidbit about the P1: it’s actually capable of surpassing a 2.8-second time if the ideal conditions are there. Not that it matters because hypercars can be prickly about “conditions,” but it is something worth paying attention to. And, speaking of paying attention to, equal shout outs to the BAC Mono and the Caterham 620R, two vehicles that nobody’s going to mistake for the P1, except that both are just as fast to 60 mph.

8) 2.7 seconds – Koenigsegg Regera / Hennessey Venom GT


2017 Koenigsegg Regera - image 619933

If you picked between these two, which one would you choose? Truth is, it doesn’t matter because both the Koenigsegg Regera and the Hennessey Venom GT are speed demons in their own right. They may be packaged differently – the Venom is a Lotus Exige at heart while the Regera is, well, automotive engineering at its apex – but rest assured, you don’t want to be sitting next to these cars in a starting line. Unless you’re driving any one of the cars that have yet to be mentioned on this list, it’s a foregone conclusion that the Regera and the Venom GT will leave you in the dust, weeping at the realization that you just got emasculated.

7) 2.6 seconds – Rimac Concept One


2011 Rimac Concept One - image 416887

I had reservations about putting the Rimac Concept One on this list because it doesn’t have the stature of any of the other automakers in here. But, I can’t deny greatness and that’s exactly what the Concept One is. On top of being one of the first full-fledged, all-electric supercars in the world, the Concept One has somehow gained even more mystic after dismantling a Ferrari LaFerrari and a Tesla Model S in a recent video. Remember the name, folks. Richard Hammond – good to see him up and about now – certainly will.

6) 2.5 seconds – Ferrari LaFerrari


2014 Ferrari LaFerrari - image 496630

The Ferrari F12tdf may have already been mentioned on this list, but the truth is that no list of fastest accelerating cars in the world will be complete without having a spot reserved for the Prancing Horse. Fortunately, the Ferrari LaFerarri is still around to remind us that Maranello is still in peak form when producing supercars. If there was anything that the LaFerrari taught us other than the fact that it’s blisteringly fast, it’s that Ferrari can adapt to the game changing rules and still thrive in the face of it. The LaFerrari may have set the bar for the Italian automaker, but you can rest assured that the objective within the company is to new see if it can create something that’s faster and a lot more powerful. Only time separates us from that inevitability.

5) 2.5 seconds – Porsche 918 Spyder

Completing the holy trinity of hypercars is the Porsche 918 Spyder, a car so exquisite in its engineering that you forget that it can destroy just about any other car in a race to 60 mph. It’s emphatically quicker than the McLaren P1 and even with the identical times, the 918 Spyder actually nips the LaFerrari in terms of acceleration speed. Plus, the Porsche is arguably the most well-rounded of the three hypercars and far more importantly, was the cheapest of the three – priced at just $845,000 – before all of them were sold out.

4) 2.5 seconds – Ariel Atom 3.5R


2014 Ariel Atom 3.5R - image 551739

It’s technically not a road-going car in the traditional sense of one, but that doesn’t matter. The Ariel Atom 3.5R is more than capable of putting the fear of God on anybody who happens to be in the driver’s seat. We all saw what the Atom V8 did to Jeremy Clarkson’s face and while the 3.5R may not have the horses of its V8-counterpart, its 350-horsepower output rating on a body that only has a 550-kg curb weight still allows it to post a quicker sprint to 60-mph than just about every other car in the world

3) 2.3 seconds – Bugatti Chiron


2018 Bugatti Chiron - image 680744

With respect to the almighty Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and its own 2.5-second acceleration time, I’m putting it together with its successor, the Chiron. It’s a testament to Bugatti’s capability to bring us some of the fastest and most powerful cars in the world when an all-conquering masterpiece like the Veyron Super Sport can still evolve into something that’s faster and more powerful. That’s what we have with the Chiron, which boasts an incredible 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque. Here’s the best part though: knowing what Bugatti was able to do with the Veyron, there’s reason to expect that a more extreme Chiron could be in the way. Imagine what that car can do.

2) 2.3 seconds – Dodge Challenger SRT Demon


2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon - image 729184

It was billed as the fastest-accelerating muscle car in the world and it sure as heck lived up to it. The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon’s ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph is beyond incredible. Considering that the only car to beat it in an acceleration test is an electric car, there’s no doubt that the SRT Demon is also the fastest-accelerating, gas-powered car in the world. There are no ifs and buts about it, folks, The Demon is a monster in every sense of the word.

1) 2.28 seconds – Tesla Model S P100D


Gone In Three Seconds: The 10 Fastest Cars To 60 MPH - image 686181

The Tesla Model S P100D is the ultimate in car irony. It’s the fastest-accelerating car in the world and it’s also arguably one of the quietest and most environmentally friendly cars you’ll ever come across. It’s also no surprise that it sits on top of this list even though the Challenger SRT Demon did give it a serious run for its money. In the end, the Model S P100D still reigns supreme, at least until a hotter version comes along. And to think, all Elon Musk had to do was figure out that electric power meant instant torque…

PostHeaderIcon 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show – Worst In Show

With the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show now written into the history books, we have a nice list of superb automotive debuts to look at and feel good about. But unfortunately, as is often the case, you gotta take the good with the bad, and there were a few reveals in Germany this year that didn’t quite cut the mustard. Between less-than-special special editions, lackluster SUVs, and uninspiring concepts, there was actually a good deal to pick from when putting together this list of Worst In Show.

Funny enough, we decided to toss in some controversial picks for good measure as well. That’s right – you may find one entry that managed to appear on both the Best In Show and Worst In Show lists! We here at TopSpeed are still arguing about it, so we want you, dear readers, to get in on the conversation. That means posting in the comments to let us know which cars did it for you and which ones fell flat. Are our opinions correct? Keep us honest! So without further ado…

PostHeaderIcon 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show – Best In Show

Auto show season is very much upon us, kicking off in Germany with the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. This bi-annual event (passenger cars are presented during odd-numbered years and commercial vehicles during even-numbered years) traditionally brings out the good stuff, and this year was no different, with a variety of exciting, innovative, and highly desirable new rides making headlines across numerous segments.

Of course, it goes without saying that we here at TopSpeed.com are, like any other gear head, naturally inclined to seek out those things that are fast and sexy, and as such, there were a few obvious picks going on this list. If you’ve been paying attention to the news coming out of Frankfurt, you know that should include the latest hybrid hypercar from Mercedes, Bimmer’s new Le Mans race machine, and a particular Prancing Horse as well. To these obvious picks, we added a concept and even a slick SUV, plus a few other standouts. Read on for our picks of the best from Frankfurt, and feel free to post your additions and/or edits in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon 10 Great Cars Nobody Cares About

It is the year 2017. The crusade on the car as we know it is in full swing. As a result, our roads are filled with crimes against humanity such as the Toyota Prius. Furthermore, the United Kingdom decided to ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars from 2040 [1]. Germany is also considering a similar plan [2]. Many major cities, predominantly in Europe, are going car-free in places.

As a result, this makes the world a very dull place for those of us who love cars. The majority of the population cares less about acceleration or handling and more about gas mileage and stupidly overly complicated infotainment systems. Hence why more people drive about in Honda Civics and Toyota Priuses than cars that are somewhat interesting, such as the BMW 3 Series or a Saab of some sort. As a result, many exciting cars are overlooked by the majority of the population, even by us car enthusiasts. So, here is a list of 10 superb cars that time has forgotten.

PostHeaderIcon TopSpeed’s Top 10 Race Car Homologation Specials

Racing is just frickin’ awesome, amirite? Pushing the limits of what’s possible with four wheels and an engine, testing the skill and bravery and those who sit behind the wheel, proving who’s the best and who’s the rest… these are the things that make motorsport so incredible. But there’s another wrinkle to add to the mix – sometimes, when the stars align just so, the world of racing spits out a machine born on the track, but ready for the road. We call these beasts homologation specials, and they’re some of the most exciting, uncompromised, and downright drool-worthy automobiles on the planet. As such, we’ve compiled 10 of the best right here for your reading pleasure.

We’ve tried our best to include a broad variety of vehicles, including muscle cars, supercars, and rally cars, with a mixture of European, Japanese, and American manufacturers all present and accounted for. Each offers its own take on what it means to go fast, whether it’s big downforce, big power, or sideways hoonery. Maybe it’s all three. Of course, picking a favorite is tough in this crowd, but forced to choose, which of these homologation specials is right for you? Let us know in the comments so we can join in on the fantasy.

PostHeaderIcon TopSpeed’s Top 5 All-Electric Performance Cars

Last week, we took a look at our top picks for the best five hybrid sports, listing off some truly awe-inspiring gas/electric combos that proved hybridization wasn’t something to be feared by the common auto enthusiast. But while adding a big battery pack and a few electric motors might seem like a pretty sizable modification to the traditional sports car formula, there’s an even-greater change lurking just over the horizon – the pure-electric powertrain. That’s right, gasoline need not apply in this crowd, and yet, the speed potential is still enough to melt your face. This is our list of the top five all-electric performance cars.

There are plenty of benefits that electric power offers over internal combustion, especially when it comes to the business of going fast. For starters, the torque curve for an electric motor is totally flat, with maximum twist created the instant you touch the long pedal to the right. There’s also zero power loss at high altitude, a characteristic that’s particularly useful at hill climb events like Pikes Peak. What’s more, with enough motors and a little electronic wizardry, you can get away with some pretty kick ass torque vectoring dynamics. Of course, it’s not all roses – for example, the all-electric appliance noise will never beat the sound of exploding dino juice. Regardless, all-electric performance is still quite impressive. Here are five examples that prove it.

PostHeaderIcon TopSpeed’s Top 5 Hybrid Sports Cars

Ready or not, the hybrids are coming. Scratch that. They’re already here, and their numbers are steadily increasing. But fear not, brave auto enthusiast, the ever-increasing popularity of the hybrid powertrain isn’t going to diminish your fun behind the wheel. In fact, the addition of electric assistance might actually increase the smile factor of the modern sports car. Despite rampant speculation and fear mongering over the Prius-ification of the performance segment, hybrid powertrains can add mph in addition to mpg. To prove as much, here are five of the best examples of exactly that.

Of course, you won’t be able to get one of these machines for cheap, as adding a performance hybrid system to the powertrain also adds quite a few dollars to the bottom line. But that’s to be expected when dealing with top-of-the-line technology, especially tech born and bred for the racetrack. Eventually, we’ll see this stuff trickle down to more accessible models, but for now, hybrid sports cars occupy the top of the pyramid. Tell us which model you want in your garage, and if we missed something we shouldn’t have, by posting in the comments.

PostHeaderIcon 2017 New York International Auto Show – Best In Show

After all the crazy awesomeness that was the Geneva Motor Show back in March, it was hard to expect that the follow-up act in New York could offer much to hold our collective attention. Thankfully, we were proved wrong thanks to a fine selection of debuts in the Big Apple, including some nice production rides, a well-executed concept, and a pair of over-the-top performance machines from FCA. Drawing a blank? No worries – we’ve got you covered with our list of the best debuts from the 2017 New York International Auto Show.

If you have been paying attention, then the first two entries on this list shouldn’t be a surprise at all. Complementing these two outrageous speed-makers is a production luxury SUV and an off-roading SUV concept, the inclusion of which shouldn’t be all that surprising either, considering the segment’s popularity in the U.S. In reserve, we’ve also got something unexpected – a brand-new production wagon.

These are our picks for the top five best debuts from New York in 2017, but we wanna know – what were your favorites? Are they listed here, or did we miss them? Let us know in the comments!

PostHeaderIcon 2017 Geneva International Motor Show – Worst In Show

In case you were unaware, the Geneva International Motor Show this year was spectacular. In fact, we were so impressed we felt it necessary to add three extra slots to our normal top five entries for Best In Show. Unfortunately, this article will probably kill all those warm and fuzzy feelings you got going on right now. You see, nothing is perfect, and despite all the four-wheeled loveliness on display in Switzerland, there was plenty to gripe about as well. And you know us – we never miss an opportunity to gripe.

But hey, that’s why we’re here – to nitpick and criticize from the safety of our keyboards. And yeah, we read the comments, so we know you share our passion.

So come with us on a journey of cynicism and derision as we explore the worst of the worst from the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. By the way, since we did eight entries for Best In Show piece, we decided to throw in one more for the Worst In Show as well, bringing this list to six entries total. You know, just to even it out a little. One for the road couldn’t hurt, right?
