  • 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Coupe

    When you have an obscene amount of money, you should be driving a grand tourer. I recommend the Aston Martin DB11 or a Ferrari GTC4 Lusso. But what if you're not a sultan, an oligarch, or a tech innovator and still want what a GT can provide? You buy the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Coupe. Priced from $59,895, including a mandatory $995 destination charge, the redesigned E-Class Coupe takes all the important elements that make grand tourers so desirable—a spacious, opulent cabin; high-speed stability, comfort and agility; a stunning body, and straight-line speed—and lowers the cost of...

  • Godsil Manhattan V16 Super-Coupe teased
    Godsil Manhattan V-16 Super-Coupe teased, design coming June 26

    It's been over three years since we first heard about the Godsil Manhattan V16 Super-Coupe project, and now it seems we'll finally get to see what this thing looks like. On June 26, Jason Godsil, CEO and founder of Godsil Motorscars, says he'll release images of the luxurious coupe's design. The...

  • Infiniti Q60 Project Black S concept, 2017 Geneva auto show
    Infiniti's Q60 Project Black S will wear special-made Pirelli tires

    Sitting at each corner of a production-bound Infiniti Q60 Black S will be Pirelli rubber. Both Infiniti and Pirelli used the previous weekend's 2017 Formula One Canadian Grand Prix as a stage to announce the new partnership. If you'll recall, the Project Black S began life as a pretty wild concept...

  • 2017 Honda Civic Si First Drive
    Reliability capped power on the 2017 Honda Civic Si

    When initial specifications began to trickle out surrounding the 2017 Honda Civic Si, there were two courts. One court realized the car would be a blast to drive. The other felt the power ratings were much too low. Experiences may vary per driver, but the Civic Si is still a hoot to toss...

  • Lexus LC production at Toyota Motomachi Plant in Aichi, Japan
    Lexus gives inside look at LC production

    On a dedicated line at the Toyota Motomachi Plant in Aichi, Japan, Lexus’ most skilled craftspeople, known as Takumi, Japanese for “artisan,” work on LC production. Many of the same staff worked on Lexus’ LFA at the Motomachi plant and now they’re using the skills...

  • Rolls-Royce Sweptail
    Rolls-Royce builds the world’s most expensive ‘new’ car

    Rolls-Royce has crafted a one-off car for a customer. Presented at this past weekend’s 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy, the bespoke car, dubbed the Sweptail because of its swept rear end reminiscent of the design used by Rolls-Royces of the 1920s, is rumored to have...

  • 2017 Honda Civic Si First Drive

    The ascending shift lights dart along the tach, green to yellow to red, before the revs bounce and the 2017 Honda Civic Si stretches its legs in the tawny California desert. As the center-mounted exhaust bellows a convincing growl and a short throw from third gear easily finds fourth, the new Civic Si makes its most conclusive argument yet: this is a new page for Honda’s accessible entry-performance sedan. What this Civic Si retains in heritage—namely affordability, precision, and fun—it also leaves behind a noticeably absent VTEC wail and a historically blank canvas for...

  • BMW M8 prototype, 2017 M Festival
    BMW M8 teased, will race at Le Mans

    BMW M used this weekend’s M Festival held at the Nürburgring to confirm an M8 performance flagship will form part of the new 8-Series range currently in the works. The first member of the new range will be a regular 8-Series coupe. It debuts in 2018 and was previewed on Friday at the...

  • BMW 8-Series Concept
    BMW 8-Series concept revealed, that escalated quickly

    BMW didn't wait long to show fans of the brand that it still could build a big coupe. Days after quietly pulling from sale the 6-Series coupe from the U.S., BMW showed in Italy what's likely coming next. The BMW 8-Series Concept revealed Thursday at Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este on the shores of...

  • First US-spec Lamborghini Centenario delivered to customer in California
    First US-spec Lamborghini Centenario arrives in Newport Beach

    A very happy customer took delivery of a rare beast in California. Lamborghini Newport Beach played host to the first U.S-spec Centenario, which has just arrived on our shores. The Italian automaker plans to build just 40 examples in total, with the build-out distributed between 20 coupes and 20...

  • HGK BMW M2 features LS V-8 power
    This LS-powered BMW 2-Series is a sideways hooligan

    HGK Motorsport is a Latvian race shop that is churning out some seriously powerful machines, and its focus is on a handful of BMW platforms. The crew over there has a soft spot for the E36, E46, and E92 M3s. Now, though, HGK has a new jumble of Bavaria's finest alphanumerics in its stable: the F22...

  • 2017 Honda Civic Si Coupe
    2017 Honda Civic Si arrives with $24,775 price tag

    Honda has been busy filling out the 10th-generation Civic's portfolio with a sedan, coupe, and the return of the hatchback. While the commonplace variants carry out their sales duty, Honda will spice things up with the introduction of a new Type R and the return of the familiar Si. We now know how...

  • Teaser for BMW 8-Series-previewing concept debuting at 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este

    Tired of watching Mercedes-Benz launch hit after hit in the high-end segment for two-door cars, BMW is finally ready to join the fray with its own offering—something that’s long overdue. And no, the slow-selling i8 doesn't count. The new offering will be an 8-Series which BMW will preview with a concept at this month’s 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa D’Este in Italy. The automaker on Thursday released a teaser sketch showing a stylized silhouette of the concept which is in the form of a coupe. The standard 8-Series will be a coupe but we’ll also see an...

  • 2018 BMW 2-Series
    2018 BMW 2-Series preview

    The 2-Series is one of our favorite cars in the BMW lineup. In fact, the high-performance M2 variant was voted Motor Authority’s Best Car to Buy 2017. It’s mostly because the car reminds us of BMWs of old, where rear-wheel drive, inline-6s and manual transmissions ruled. Yes, the...

  • 2017 BMW 6-Series
    BMW drops 6-Series coupe

    BMW has quietly dropped the coupe body style from its 6-Series range for 2018. It means there are now just the 6-Series Convertible and 6-Series Gran Coupe options. The M6 coupe has also disappeared along with the regular model. A BMW spokesperson confirmed to Road & Track that the 6-Series...

  • 2018 BMW Alpina B4 S
    2018 BMW Alpina B4 S revealed

    Alpina’s B4 has been updated along with the BMW 4-Series on which it is based. In updated the form the car is known as the B4 S, and its 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-6 now beats out an M4-rivaling 434 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque. That’s up from 410 hp and 442 lb-ft...

  • 2014 Kia Forte Koup
    Kia is killing off the Forte Koup

    The Kia Forte Koup has been sent to the automotive guillotine as consumer demand for small cars continues to dwindle in favor of larger crossovers and SUVs. It hasn't helped that the 10th-generation Honda Civic coupe has come out swinging this time around either. Kia confirmed to CarsDirect the...

  • 2017 Lotus Exige Cup 380
    2017 Lotus Exige Cup 380 is all about the aero

    We only get the Lotus Evora in the United States, at least as far as road cars are concerned. But overseas, buyers still have new versions of the lighter, more affordable Elise and Exige models they can opt for. The latest model to come out of Lotus’ headquarters in Hethel is a harder-edged...

  • 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

    We all know the lofty claims. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the fastest production car in the quarter mile with a time of 9.65 seconds and in the 0-60 mph sprint at just 2.3 seconds. However, those numbers require 100+ octane racing fuel and the optional Direct Connection engine controller. Those goodies give it the full 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque. What happens if you just run it like it comes out of the box without the fancy extras? How quick is it on pump gas, and what happens if you put it in Eco mode and take it down the quarter mile that way? Turns out, it still...

  • 2018 BMW M4 CS
    Only 3,000 M4s to receive CS treatment

    BMW unveiled the first of a new series of CS models last week at the 2017 Shanghai auto show. The first is the M4 CS which CarBuzz has learned will be built in a limited run of just 3,000 cars for worldwide sale. It’s not clear, still, how many will end up in the United States. The M4 CS...

  • 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
    The fat Dodge Demon brakes harder than a Viper ACR

    Haters love to bash the Hellcats, and already the Demon, for only going fast in a straight line. They pounce on the fact that these Mopar muscle cars weigh over two tons. While that's true, weight is only one piece of the equation. Despite being somewhat "fat," the Demon is good at more than just...

  • 2018 BMW M4 CS
    454-horsepower BMW M4 CS debuts at 2017 Shanghai auto show

    When BMW in January announced its round of mid-cycle updates for the M4, many, including us, were disappointed to learn there were no real changes apart from some tweaks to the lights and new colors. That’s because BMW was saving the M4’s more substantial updates for a new model...

  • 2018 Jaguar F-Type 400 Sport
    2018 Jaguar F-Type preview

    Jaguar’s F-Type has undergone a mid-cycle update. The changes are subtle yet provide the stylish sports car with the latest technology, a more refined look, and a new engine option. There’s also a lower price tag! You’ll spot the updated range by the full LED headlights and new...

  • Hyundai Vision G (HCD-16) concept
    Genesis coupe to skip V-8 in favor of electrified powertrain

    One of the six cars Genesis plans to have in its lineup by the end of 2020 is a large, luxurious coupe built more for grand touring than carving up race tracks. Unfortunately, a previous plan to fit the car with a V-8 looks to have been axed with Genesis instead favoring an electrified powertrain...
