    Frankfurt: Opel gets its Regal on with the new Insignia, OPC lineup
    1378908060

    If we had to pick an Opel to join the Buick range, it's an overwhelmingly safe bet that it'd be the new Insignia OPC Tourer, a 325-horsepower, all-wheel drive wagon, with an optional six-speed manual and the ability to hit 60 in a (sandbagged) 6.3 seconds. It makes its American equivalent, the...

    Frankfurt: 2014 Kia Soul SUV Styling Pack adds some aggression
    1378905600

    Last month, Kia released a few photos of the European-market 2014 Soul ahead of its Frankfurt Motor Show reveal, and we happened to notice that the hamster box looked a bit different – a bit tougher. That's because Kia is adding an SUV Styling Pack to the car's options list, which includes...

    Frankfurt: 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG is fast, not furious [w/video]
    1378904400

    Now that we've already seen (and driven) the new-for-2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class in its standard, S550 form, it's time to set our sights on the rest of the model range. The next iteration to make its debut is this, the S63 AMG, taking the stage here in Frankfurt. No, the S63 isn't quite the top...

    Frankfurt: Land Rover debuts Range Rover Hybrid, not bound for US
    1378902660

    Considering what year it is, it almost seems weird to say that Land Rover has just introduced its very first production hybrid here at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. After all, automakers have been getting into the gasoline-electric game for well over a decade now. Nevertheless, Landie's first...

    Frankfurt: Ford Mondeo classes up with premium Vignale trim
    1378900740

    Back in the day, Vignale was a carrozzeria of the highest order, alongside the likes of Pininfarina, Bertone and Zagato. But like Giugiaro-ItalDesign and Ghia, it has since been subsumed into a larger auto group. Ford ended up with it under its umbrella when it took over De Tomaso, and has since...

    Frankfurt: Alpina B3 Bi-Turbo burns all the midnight oil
    1378899000

    We've got good news and bad news for you, boys and girls, from the floor of the Frankfurt Motor Show. The good news is that the BMW M3 has come early, with a diesel, in wagon form – albeit with a different name. The bad news is that it will in all likelihood never make it to America. Which...

    Frankfurt: Senna's McLaren drives Honda up the wall
    1378897320

    Honda is getting excited for its imminent return to Formula One with McLaren. So excited, in fact, that it got its new/old friends from Woking to loan it one of its old F1 cars. But not just any old F1 car... On display at the Honda stand in Frankfurt this year is the 1988 McLaren MP4-4 in...

    1378895580

    Opel brought out its entire Insignia range for the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, with particular attention paid to each new models refreshed features.

    Frankfurt: Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Squadra Corse isn't mellow, comes in yellow
    1378891740

    Normally, this is the part where we remind you that the Lamborghini Gallardo is about to be replaced, and that this LP570-4 Squadra Corse is the swan song for the model range. That first part may be true, but at this point, we'd be shocked if yet another special edition Gallardo didn't debut...

    Frankfurt: 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class hits the matte
    1378888200

    The Mercedes-Benz stand here in Frankfurt was indeed buzzing following the debut of the swoopy S-Class Coupe Concept, but another big debut from the German automaker came in the form of this, the 2015 GLA-Class compact crossover. As its nomenclature would suggest, the GLA is essentially a...

    Frankfurt: Kia Niro Concept is the miniature Soul of the future
    1378886400

    The Kia Niro Concept has officially made its Frankfurt Motor Show debut, and aside from the product specialist who would not get out of our photographer's way, this was our first in-person look at the Niro Concept, which first broke cover near the end of last month. The compact, rough-and-tumble...

    1378862940

    VW is using the Frankfurt Motor Show to trot out a concept version of the next Golf Plus. Dropping the 'Plus' with this next iteration, the compact mini-minvan will henceforth be known as the Golf Sportsvan, and this concept is about as close to production as concepts get. With a length that...

    Frankfurt: Honda Civic Tourer reminds us why we love wagons
    1378861200

    It was the early 1990s when the last Honda Civic Wagon graced our shores, looking more like a squat five-door hatchback with an extra dose of charm. Well, Honda debuted the newest Civic Wagon Tourer at the Frankfurt Motor Show today, but, as we reported last month, it's a European model that...

    Frankfurt: BMW X5 eDrive Concept is utilitarian plug-in hybrid
    1378859400

    Bridging the gap between internal combustion engine-powered vehicles and electric vehicles are plug-in hybrids, and BMW has made one out of its biggest sports utility vehicle, even if it's just a concept car at this point. The plug-in hybrid X5 eDrive Concept debuted today at the Frankfurt Motor...

    Frankfurt: Bentley Continental GT V8 S is just a little bit more excess [w/video]
    1378855800

    Bentley has given its new, uprated Continental GT and GTC a live debut in Frankfurt, after a world debut on the interwebs, last week. The new models, which now wear the "V8 S" moniker, share their 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 with the standard GT/GTC V8, but pack an extra 21 horsepower and 15...

    Frankfurt: Ford S-Max Concept proves minivans aren't always minivans [w/video]
    1378854060

    Ford's latest don't-call-it-a-minivan is called the S-Max Concept, and it's a looker. As you can see, the conceptual overgrown hatch makes good use of Ford's latest design language, especially at the very front of the S-Max, which bears a striking resemblance to production models that include...

    Frankfurt: Ferrari 458 Speciale is our Frankfurt fantasy [w/video]
    1378852380

    This is the Ferrari 458 Speciale, and while its name might underwhelm, its performance and lineage more than make up for it. The successor to the proud line of hot, higher-performance, mid-engined Ferraris like the 360 Challenge Stradale and 430 Scuderia, the 458 Speciale is blessed with a...

    Frankfurt: Mercedes CLA45 AMG Racing is ready for a spot on the grid

    Mercedes-Benz trotted out its CLA45 AMG-based racer at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. We first showed you the sedan in the deluge of news and reveals that precedes most good auto shows, and were blown away by the car, formally known as the CLA45 AMG Racing Series. We were strolling by the...

    Frankfurt: Aston Martin DB9 Centenary Edition burnishes an aging beauty
    1378846800

    Are you one of those jaded enthusiasts that think all of today's Aston Martin models look the same? Gorgeous though they may be, the brand's products and design language have gotten a bit, shall we say... familiar. Gorgeous, but familiar. The British marque's cupboards have been bare of all-new...
