Our man Kurt drove the 2013 Nissan GT-R to see if Godzilla's latest upgrades warrant the sticker price increase. After a day of driving he concluded the car is still insane as ever, but for the price it's hard to argue with its credentials. In our opinion, you should do anything you can to get behind the wheel of this Japanese beast.
Volkswagen unveiled its Cross Coupe TDI Plug-In Hybrid Concept before its Geneva Motor Show debut. Utilizing a 2.0-liter TDI diesel engines and a plug-in hybrid setup, this concept offers up a total of 516 pound-feet of torque. The concept can drive up to 28 miles on electric power alone and reach 60 mph in a mere 6.5 seconds. Being the second variant of this concept to break cover, you can be assured Volkswagen is looking closely at the markets' reaction to this concept.
We drove the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth and find it is exactly what we had hoped the Fiat 500 would be from the beginning. With good grip and tight suspension, the sporty little hatchback offers a nice balance in the corners. The two key impressions we walked away with are: this is one fun little car on a track, and it looks amazing.
