    1405364280

    What separates a road car from a race car? You're looking at it. It's the Lotus Exige V6 Cup, a model based on what is already one of the most hardcore performance machines on the road, albeit upgraded to an even harder-core spec.

    1405321200

    Mercedes-Benz has officially unveiled what may be the most opulent coupe in the brand's storied history in the form of the 2015 S65 AMG Coupe.

    Video: LaFerrari XX prototype pushed so hard that its suspension fails
    1405293300

    Ferrari has a real challenge on its hands. It made the new LaFerrari hybrid hypercar so extreme already that it left little room to crank it up to 11 and turn it into an XX development prototype like it did with the Enzo and the 599 before it. So it's really going to have to push the envelop to ...

    Report: Dubai Roadster already attracting orders ahead of debut
    1405270860

    We would generally advise against buying a car sight unseen, but when it comes to some supercars, the entire year's production run is often spoken for before the car is even unveiled. Which is fine, in some sense we guess, when it's coming from a known manufacturer like Ferrari or Lamborghini. ...

    Rumormill: BMW to change model designations even further from actual displacement?
    1405191660

    Once upon a time, you could look at the back of a trunk lid of a BMW and come up with a pretty fair idea of what sat under its hood. For example, a 320i was a 3 Series with a fuel-injected, 2.0-liter engine, a 328i was a 3 Series with a fuel-injected, 2.8-liter engine and a 328Ci was a two-door 3 ...

    Official: Caterham bids farewell to the Superlight R500
    1405085520

    There are many things you could say about the Caterham Seven. It's ugly as a demon from hell, first of all, and it's based on a design so old it makes the Porsche 911 and Jeep Wrangler look like new technology. But it's also fast. Damn fast. When Caterham introduced the Superlight R500 over six ...
