  • Jay Leno's 1962 Maserati 3500 GTi

    When you’re Jay Leno, there’s no such thing as “enough” cars in your collection, and the search for one particular make and model is just as likely to uncover a car you weren't even looking for. From what we can tell, Leno stumbled across this 1962 Maserati 3500 GTi in a storage locker while on the quest for an Aston Martin DB5. The Maserati had been in storage for some 20 years and had nearly 100k miles on the clock; while it would clearly need mechanical work, the body and paint made the car worth buying, especially at $25,000. Unless you’re Jay Leno, restoring...

  • 2012 BMW 650i Coupe

    The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is still a fresh, frenetic memory, but I've spent the last two days driving some of BMW's newest hardware up and down California's central coast. Between clipping canyon apexes and whirring along in high-tech quietude, it became clear: the new 6er coupe is about more than just better looks. Power, of course, is ample. The 400-horsepower, 450-pound-feet of torque twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 does its job even more readily and forcefully than in the new Convertible, thanks to its lighter weight--several hundred pounds were saved in the hard top even though the...
