    Review: 2015 Jaguar F-Type V6 S Coupe
    1409760000

    The Middle Child Is Just Right My first, ill-fated job in the auto world was at an exotic car dealer in metro Detroit. The job itself sucked, but the cars, they were exceptional. Amidst a sea of Tiptronic Porsche Boxsters, first-gen Mercedes-Benz SLKs and abused second-generation Range Rovers, ...

    Germany Goes Cafe Cool, Finally Embraces Customization BMW is taking a page from the Harley-Davidson playbook with its groundbreaking R NineT. A retro cafe racer with an urban hooligan twist, the bike is fully customizable from fork to exhaust. Of course, any motorcycle can be customized, but the ...

    Review: 2014 Land Rover Range Rover HSE
    1409068620

    When this current generation of Range Rover first debuted for the 2013 model year, much was made of its aluminum-intensive superstructure, and the hundreds of pounds of curb weight – some 700 (318 kilograms) of the suckers – shed as a result. Not having had the opportunity to drive ...

    Quick Spin: 2015 Galpin Ford GTR1
    1408982220

    1,058 Horsepower, Yours For $1 Million

    Last year in Monterey, we met GTR1 for the first time. Galpin Auto Sports pulled the wraps off its Ford GT-based supercar, powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.4-litre V8 good for a whopping 1,024 horsepower and 739 pound-feet of torque. The thing was totally ...

    Review: 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4Matic
    1408377600

    Luxury Bruiser Loves To Run, Hates To Dawdle Let us pause as I toss a Kleenex to the owners of Mercedes-Benz's $204,500 S600 and $249,500 S65 AMG models. The quickest S-Class is not fitted with a twin-turbocharged V12 driving its rear wheels. Instead, that honour goes to this $167,400 (the ...

    First Drive: 2014 Volkswagen Scirocco R
    1407513600

    Germany's automakers seem to get their jollies by watching us scratch our heads. Instead of sticking to traditional automotive bodystyles, they've been deliberately blurring the lines between them and inventing new terminology with which to classify their creations. So we're left with low-slung ...

    First Drive: 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe
    1407427200

    Save for a few years of its century-plus existence, Cadillac has offered its unique brand of American elegance in two-door, fixed-roof bodystyles. Most of these cars were big, floaty barges, of course, though its most recent offering was the wedge-shaped CTS Coupe. But whereas the CTS Coupe was a ...

    First Drive: 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
    1407340620

    It ain't easy being the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Up until now, the compact luxury sedan has had a tough job description: offer sufficient driving dynamics to allow it to compete with the lauded BMW 3 Series, while also serving as the lowest cost of entry into the coveted Mercedes-Benz portfolio. ...

    First Drive: 2015 Acura TLX
    1407254400

    Immediately after landing at Washington's Dulles airport, an Acura representative handed me the keys to a 2014 TSX with fewer than 300 kilometres on its clock. The four-cylinder engine started and I pointed its signature beak towards a destination in Middleburg, VA. It was a curious move by the ...

    First Drive: 2015 Cadillac Escalade
    1406908800

    The fourth-generation 2015 Cadillac Escalade is among the most important new Cadillacs since the division's renaissance kicked into high gear. It's clearly the brand's de facto flagship vehicle, and the first thing many people think of when hearing the name "Cadillac." Leading up to the debut of ...
