    1391131800

    Despite what Audi would have you believe, diesel-powered cars aren't generally the best track-day weapons. Similarly, Citroën's successful rally history does not mean all of its cars are tossable, gravel-spewing machines. That makes this maniacal, sub-10-minute lap of the Nürburgring in ...

    1385564280

    Carlos Tavares is a man of ambition. As well he should be, because you don't get to the top ranks of a major industrial group without it.
