    1379624280

    While this writer knows Zender as the maker of (mostly) fine body kits for German marques such as Volkswagen, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, the company has also been known to make kits for Italian autos.

    Just to be clear, the owner of this BMW M6 isn't ready for another one.

    Frankfurt: 2014 Peugeot 308 is a dandy Focus fighter from France
    1378996140

    It's easy to focus all the attention on the Peugeot 308 R Concept, thanks to its two-tone paint job and 270-horsepower engine. For the more average European, though, we have the standard Peugeot 308. The cleanly styled, five-door is Peugeot's bread-and-butter offering, competing against the Ford...

    Frankfurt: 2014 Mercedes-Benz S500 Plug-in Hybrid for fat cats frugal with fuel
    1378992660

    Judging by how long we waited to get a clear shot of the Mercedes-Benz S500 Plug-in Hybrid, you'd have thought hybrid cars were only driven by Terminators and that the technology arrived only 48 hours ago through a wormhole in the Mercedes stand. The newest member of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class hy...

    1378954860

    The 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show has come to a close at last. Well, almost. Expect to see a few more stories out of Germany to trickle in over the next day or so, as we empty our memory cards, take one last look through our notes and order our belongings for the long flight back home.

    Frankfurt: Mansory La Revoluzione shows at least a little restraint
    1378951200

    Mansory has, yet again, taken a supercar and turned the dial up to 11. Or maybe 12 or 13. This time the base car is none other than the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, a V12-powered GT car. Compared to Mansory's previous Ferrari GT-based creation, the Rambo-inspired Stallone that had used both the 599 a...

    Frankfurt: Fiat Freemont Black Code is about as Italian as apple pie
    1378949880

    We're going to go ahead and give the marketing wizards at Fiat the benefit of the doubt, and say that they didn't have some regrettable American history in mind when they dubbed the latest iteration of the Dodge Journey Fiat Freemont "Black Code." Suffice it to say that such a special edition so...

    Frankfurt: 2014 Citroën C4 Picasso proves MPVs can be beautiful
    1378948800

    Jelly-bean shape aside, the Citroën C4 Picasso is one people mover we wouldn't be ashamed to drive. It looks like a concept car, except it isn't - it's just a five-passenger MPV that's meant to get a family about as quickly and comfortably as possible. The stylish new Picasso first arrived ...

    Frankfurt: Skoda Octavia RS adds versatility to the performance formula
    1378947660

    One of the highlights of covering a European auto show like Frankfurt is the amount of forbidden fruit on hand. Most of the cars we admire from across the pond, like this Škoda Octavia RS, are on display, allowing us to see them, sit in them and push their buttons. Powered by a 2.0-lit...

    1378945200

    If the results of our totally informal, completely unscientific poll are anything to go by, Americans are eager to get their hands on small utility vehicles like the Fiat Panda. And it's easy to see why – accessibility, relatively low price and 4x4 capability are traits that ought to work ...

    1378942920

    Frankfurt: Peugeot RCZ R brings more than just an extra consonant to Frankfurt [w/video]
    1378941720

    Peugeot, being a French company, is a bit weird. Take the RCZ coupe, for example. It's a car that's as subtly handsome as an Audi TT, with a certain slickness that only French cars can pull off. Still, it's never been an outstanding performer, resting more or less as a style icon atop the Peugeo...

    Frankfurt: Skoda Rapid Spaceback lacks space in back [w/video]
    1378940520

    If you were to surmise that Skoda is to Volkswagen as Mercury was to Ford, Plymouth was to Chrysler or Lancia is to Fiat, you wouldn't be far off. It's not quite luxury but not really sporty either, and it doesn't have many stand-alone products. But the Rapid is an exception. While most of th...

    Frankfurt: Seat Leon ST is a European wagon that you can't have, Mr. America [w/video]
    1378938120

    There's nothing like the yearly reminder of the Frankfurt Motor Show to put our wagon jealousy into top gear. Be they from Alpina, Honda, Opel or Volkswagen; Europeans have access to long-roof rides that we only get to sample with a plane ticket and a Hertz Club Gold card. The Seat Leon ST is...
