  • Audi RS 5, 2017 Geneva auto show

    Audi Sport (formerly Audi Quattro) unveiled a new generation of its RS 5 on Tuesday at the 2017 Geneva auto show. As expected, the car has ditched its predecessor’s naturally-aspirated V-8 and adopted a twin-turbocharged V-6 power. The engine is the same twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 that made its debut in the 2017 Porsche Panamera 4S and is rated here at 450 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. That compares to the 450 hp and 317 lb-ft of the 4.2-liter V-8 fitted to the previous RS 5 and the 440 hp and 406 lb-ft the twin-turbo V-6 produces in the Panamera 4S. Audi quotes a 0-62...

  • 2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 Coupe
    2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 Coupe first drive review: seeing what sticks

    Its impossible not to notice that the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 has too much tire. The 225- and 245-millimeter, 19-inch Pirelli P Zero rubber sticks to the road like hot Doublemint, and the standard traction control setting has a short leash anyway. Back and forth in the C43 along coastal roads, we...

  • Bugatti Chiron
    2017 Bugatti Chiron preview

    In the supercar world, a V-8 will cut it, a V-10 is better, and a V-12 is the most desired engine. Then there's Bugatti, the French brand that laughs at your measly V-12 and ups the ante to 16 cylinders. Bugatti started its 16-cylinder, ungodly power onslaught in 2005 with the Veyron.
