  • Original 1968 Ford Mustang Bullitt

    Amid all the glitz and glam at the annual SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center sat the original Ford Mustang used in the Bullitt film. The appearance, along with that of owner Sean Kiernan, was part of an international tour that won’t be coming to an end anytime soon. “It’s been fantastic,” Kiernan said outside of the Shell booth where the car was parked. “As long as the car is good, I’m good,” he added. And the car looked great. Its dark green paint still shows the wear and tear put on a movie car and that original look is something Kiernan...

Polestar said the first batch of 34 pre-production prototypes will be used for crash tests, weather tests, and final road validation. The pre-production stage also provides the engineers with an opportunity to iron out any production snags before any customer examples are built. This is crucial in the case of the 1 as the car's carbon...

    2019 McLaren 600LT first drive review: Senna alternative

    Braking at the same point in turn 1 of Budapest’s Hungaroring circuit as when driving the 570S, the 600LT stops well short and then has to be driven to the turn on the throttle. It's not exactly the fastest way around, but I’m keeping my instructor happy with a conservative...

    2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ first drive review: The life you save

    The Genesis Essentia concept unveiled at the 2018 New York auto show was meant to usher in the Korean luxury brand's new design language and mark its transition toward electrification. However, the popularity of the design has prompted Genesis management to proceed with a limited production run. That's according to Erwin Raphael, executive director of Genesis North America, who confirmed the production plans to Motor Trend in an interview published Thursday. "We are very committed to the Essentia," Raphael said. "We love the car. We think the car will do very well." A coupe is among the six...

    2019 Chevrolet Camaro Turbo 1LE first drive review: Marathoner's muscles in a wide receiver's body

    Muscle cars of the 1960s generally did one thing well. They ground out tarmac-ripping power and torque, hurtling their body-on-frame selves straight down the road or the dragstrip with astonishing acceleration. But squiggly roads, braking zones, or enduring a track meet for longer than 15 minutes...

  • 2019 Lexus RC facelift spy shots - Image via S. Baldauf/SB-Medien

    A lightly camouflaged Lexus RC has been spotted testing in Germany and is likely a prototype for a facelifted version of the luxury coupe. The RC was introduced for 2015 so this facelifted model, expected on sale late this year or early next as a 2019 model, represents a mid-cycle update for the car. Changes visible on this prototype include revised front and rear fascias as well as revised lights at both ends. A close-up of the headlights reveals an interior treatment similar to what's found on the LS and LC flagship models. There should be some accompanying tweaks inside, including perhaps...
