  • 2014 Volkswagen Beetle Global RallyCross car

    The Global RallyCross Championship is back for another year and one of the teams to watch in 2014 is newcomer Volkswagen, which has partnered with Andretti Autosport and will be fielding a new GRC racer based on its Beetle compact. The team has also managed to snag 2011 and 2012 GRC champion Tanner Foust as well as former Formula One man Scott Speed as drivers. VW used today’s 2014 Chicago Auto Show to announce its entry into the sport, but the team’s Beetle GRC racer isn’t ready yet.

  • 2014 Volkswagen Beetle GSR

    The Gelb-Schwarzer Renner is back, making its debut as a 2014 model at the Chicago Auto Show. For the uninitiated, the tag, which is German for “Yellow Black Racer” and often shortened to GSR, was attached to a special Volkswagen Beetle launched in 1972, which proved so popular it sold out in just two months. Only 3,500 were built, all for the German market, and just like the original, the new generation will also be limited to 3,500 units, though this time around it will be sold worldwide. The new model will be known as the 2014 Volkswagen Beetle GSR, and it will be the most...

  • Superman-inspired Kia Optima Hybrid
    Superman-Inspired Kia Optima Hybrid: 2013 Chicago Auto Show

    Although Kia apparently missed the memo from 1996 that under-car neon lights are no longer cool, the overall effect of this Superman-inspired Kia Optima Hybrid is right on target--if that target is looking like it came straight from a comic book. Of course, a comic book is where Superman...

    A new Track Edition joins the fold for the 2014 run of the Nissan GT-R.

  • 2013 Nissan Juke NISMO

    Nissan's booth at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show is all about performance, with the GT-R Track Edition, 2014 370Z NISMO, and the Juke NISMO all showing the brand's need for speed. The Nissan GT-R Track Edition makes its U.S. debut at the Chicago Auto Show. Only 150 units of the car will be sold in the U.S., and with the same 545-horsepower as the standard GT-R, but a firmer suspension, special brake ducts, and a unique front spoiler and rear seat delete, the Track Edition is sure to sell out quickly. It will hit GT-R certified dealerships in May 2013--but don't wait that long, or you may be too...

    Ken Block-Influenced Ford Focus TrackSTer Set For Chicago Debut

    Tuner fifteen52 knows a thing or two about making cars go faster.

  • Mopar Chrysler 300 '12

    Another of Mopar's 75th anniversary special-editions, the Mopar '12 300 is based on the 2012 Chrysler 300, glossed up and tweaked to satisfy all your murder-sedan needs. Wearing a sinister coat of gloss black paint, accented by Mopar blue pinstripes and black chrome trim, the '12 300 looks stealth, but it definitely won't fly under the radar. Black wheels complete the murdered out look. Inside, there's Katzkin leather seats, limited edition badges, Mopar blue highlights, piano black trim, and something Chrysler calls "matte carbon hydrographic accents." OK, whatever. Even though the Mopar '12...

    Conservative as it is, the 2013 RDX might also be the best-looking vehicle in Acura's lineup--that is, until the NSX returns. Wearing the Iron Beak grille in a completely non-ironic and non-ugly way, the new RDX blends simple shapes, restrained details, and good crossover proportions. These live...

    2013 Acura ILX Live Photos: 2012 Chicago Auto Show

    OK, so it looks a lot like a Civic with Acura's grille and some fancier folds, but Acura promises the ILX will deliver the luxury goods--at a bargain price.
