Land Rover Reveals the New Range Rover Sport

Apr 26, 2013  |   Contributor: Noah Joseph

There are many new players in the luxury SUV game. Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW, Lexus, Infiniti, Acura, Cadillac, Lincoln...even Porsche makes a crossover these days. But back in the day before every premium automaker and its sister-company was making high-riding sport-utilities, there was only one name in the game: Range Rover.... Read More

Audi and Mercedes Reveal Smaller Performance Sedans

Apr 24, 2013  |   Contributor: Noah Joseph

Luxury is getting smaller. Where buyers once correlated large with upscale, more and more — in Europe especially — have begun demanding smaller vehicles that can better negotiate crowded city streets (and gas-pump prices), without skimping on the accoutrements. It’s a trend that drove BMW to produce the 1 Series, Audi the A1 and A3, Mercedes-Benz the A-Class and Lexus the CT200h, to name a few. But those are just starting points for these upscale automakers which are rapidly downscaling the size of their entry-level vehicles. Where there are smaller luxury cars, there will be pint-sized performance versions as well.... Read More

Cadillac Ups Its Game With New CTS Sedan

Apr 22, 2013  |   Contributor: Noah Joseph

When push comes to shove, many upscale car buyers just wouldn't consider buying American. They can hardly be blamed, as the Lincolns and Cadillacs of a few years ago just weren't up to the same standards as those luxury automobiles coming from Germany or Japan.... Read More

9 of the Most Expensive Hybrids on the Market

Apr 22, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

It's Earth Day and that means that people who usually don't care about Mother Earth will suddenly be wearing green tops and expounding environmental facts they learned two hours prior. Sure, there are a ton of people who care all year round, but many will be partaking in a passing interest, especially since there tends to be a stigma around environmentally conscious products....

Inside Danny "The Count" Koker's Favorite Auto Restorations and Builds

Apr 17, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

If you are a vintage car and bike enthusiast — or just a reality television junkie — you probably know who Danny "The Count" Koker is. As the proprietor of Count's Kustoms, a Las Vegas-based repair and restoration shop (specifically for cars and motorcycles), Koker has become a household name with the help of reality TV. After continually appearing on History Channel's "Pawn Stars" as their motorcycle and auto expert, Koker was given his own show called "Counting Cars" (Season Two started April 9) in which he and his team obsessively go after classic and vintage cars on the glitzy streets of Vegas, sometimes even flagging strangers down to barter a sale....

Mercedes Goes to Extremes with Six-Wheeled G63 AMG

Apr 5, 2013  |   Contributor: Noah Joseph

There used to be a limit to how much you could spend on a sport-utility vehicle, with the Range Rover holding the high ground pretty much all on its own. However, with the top luxury sedans now selling for six figures and exotic supercars for seven, the elite class of SUV's is following suit. Porsche already makes an SUV and soon so will Lamborghini, Bentley and Maserati, with Aston Martin, Spyker and even Rolls-Royce considering getting in on the action. But this auto...this is the new king of the hill.... Read More

Garia Golf Cart Sports A Race Track Makeover

Apr 4, 2013  |   Contributor: Tina Stewart

Shown at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, the Garia Mansory Currus will make more of an impression on the green than it will on the street. Thanks to a close collaboration with luxury car customizer Mansory, the svelte-looking golf cart has all the trimmings of a super sports car, but with a top speed of 37 mph. Alright, so it probably won’t be whipping around the racetrack anytime soon but the Garia Roadster should make for a nice cruise to the 18th hole.... Read More

Toyota's i-Road Electric Concept Car Wows at Geneva Motor Show

Apr 3, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Looking like it's straight out of a science fiction film starring Tom Cruise, Toyota's strange i-Road concept car was unveiled last week at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The three-wheeled electric design definitely looks strange compared to the autos we're used to seeing on the roads but if Toyota delivers on its promise of safety and money-saving perks, we may be seeing this in urban environments soon....
