March 3 - 2015 Rolls-Royce Phantom Serenity This lavishly bespoke Phantom features an interior design that draws its inspiration from Japanese silk art of the Edo Period (1615-1868), especially the junihitoe, an elaborate twelve layer robe of silk worn exclusively by female Japanese courtiers. The delicate Smoke Green silk was hand painted in a Haye and Lusby blossom motif using a painstaking process that would take up to 600 hours per panel.

March 3 - 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS The GT3 RS roars into Geneva as Porsche's new powerhouse among naturally aspirated 911s. With 500 hp and a 4 liter flat-six, the GT3 RS has the most power and displacement of any 9/11 that does not benefit from turbocharging. That power is put to good use, as its lap time on the Nurburging North Loop of 7 minutes and 20 seconds surpasses even that of the Carrera GT supercar by nearly 9 seconds.

March 2 - 2015 Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept Though Bentley has had a performance focus since the company was founded in 1919, it has been many decades since they've had anything that would be called a proper sports car. For all of its sporting qualities, the Continental GT is, as the name denotes, a Grand Tourer, and not strictly a sports car. Enter the EXP 10 Speed 6.

March 1 - 2015 BMW M4 DTM The past 3 years has seen considerable BMW success in DTM, and here the company showcases the cars and drivers that will compete in the 18 races of the DTM in 2015.

March 1 - 2015 Mini Clubman Vision Gran Turismo  For the 15th anniversary of the very popular Gran Turismo franchise, president Kazunori Yamauchi made an open invitation to automobile manufacturers to become part of the very successful racing game.

March 1 - 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL Mille Miglia 417 The Mille Miglia 417 gets its name from the SL that crossed the finish line in 1955 under the piloting of American driver John Fitch and bearing the race number 417. It finished fifth in the race, but first among production sports cars. It completed the 992 mile race from Brescia to Rome and back again in 11 hours, 29 minutes, and 21 seconds.

February 26 - 2015 Brabus Mercedes-Benz S 63 850 Biturbo Coupe  838 hp. 1069 lb-ft of torque, a number that is so high the engine is electronically limited to "only" 848 lb-ft. All wheel drive. A seven speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

February 26 - 2015 Cigarette Racing 50 Marauder GT S Concept For the past 8 years, Cigarette Racing has worked with Mercedes-Benz to produce some fascinating joint concepts.

February 23 - 2015 Mercedes-Benz G 500 4x4² Show Car The 4x4² amplifies the formula of the G-Class and takes it to a completely different level. They started with the powertrain and portal axles from the 6x6 adapted to a new variable chassis 4 wheel car with the production G-Class body. The net result is a G 500 with significantly enhanced off-road abilities.

February 20 - 2015 BMW M GT Concept Design by Idries Noah  Idries Noah is the talented South African car designer responsible for designs such as the Rat Lung Hot Rod and Taasiya T7. His latest creation is this M GT inspired by past BMWs of note such as the high performance 3.0CS and the flagship 850i. The M GT would be derived from and share many mechanicals with the M6. The goal would be a car that is roughly the same size but lighter with a turbocharged V8 producing 600 hp.

February 19 - 2015 Bentley Continental GT The GT sees some noteworthy styling refinements, particularly in the front section. A new and smaller radiator shell sits above a new front bumper and air intake design. The fenders have become more pronounced, and now feature a side vent incorporating a "B" emblem. In the rear, the boot lid now has a more aerodynamic and sculpted form. The body changes match the car so naturally that they look as if they had been part of the Continental design from day one.

February 18 - 2015 Zolland Design Volkswagen Beetle 4x4  This massively cool creation from Zolland Design would be built on a VW Golf 4x4 chassis.

February 16 - 2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept Nissan's performance division NISMO has been on a popularity streak as of late, with the 370Z NISMO accounting for no less than 20% of total 370Z sales. That surge in sales has led to Nissan now seriously considering the first open-top NISMO model. This concept has been created to gauge consumer interest for what will almost certainly be a production car coming down the pike.

February 16 - 2016 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe  This spring will see Cadillac release their first ever V-Series that benefits from twin turbocharging. The ATS-V Coupe features a 3.6 liter V6 producing 455 hp, with an output of 126.4 hp per liter.

February 14 - 2015 Dodge Challenger Shaker  The Shaker hood made its first appearance on the then new Dodge Challenger in 1970. It takes its name from the air scoop moving with the engine at idle. We probably won't see the same shaking from the modern Challenger. Modern cars have more secure engine mounts and have been engineered to minimize engine vibration within the chassis, but the coolness factor remains.

February 13 - 2015 BMW M4 MotoGP Safety Car The most intriguing technical detail of the MotoGP Safety Car is the use of water injection, a feature that will also appear in a future model.

February 13 - 2015 BMW 1 Series The changes in the latest version of the 1 Series are mostly incremental, though they do include a significant shift in the design. While the specific styling changes are unique to the 1 series, the overall effect is much closer to the hallmarks of BMW styling over the past decade, and more consistent with the rest of the lineup.


2015 BMW 1 Series

February 13 - 2015 BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer  BMW has done an admirable job in the design of what is basically a minivan. As family vehicles, minivans simply make a lot of sense from a utilitarian standpoint, though usually little or none from a styling standpoint. The 2 Series is an exception to that latter point.

February 10 - 2015 Zolland Design Volkswagen Amarok GT3 Concept  Bo Zolland has designed this vision of a Volkswagen Amarok that would compete in a GT3 truck series.

February 9 - 2015 fostla.de Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG  Looking sharp in an anodized red foil-wrap, this E63 has seen its share of modifications from fostla.de. The engine has been upgraded from its already substantial 557 hp to a more extreme 720 horses, with torque taking a leap from 531 to 738 lb-ft.

February 9 - 2014 Honda FCV Concept  The FCV Concept by Honda is an electric car powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. The zero-emissions design has a driving range of over 300 miles, and refueling time of 3 minutes, or little more than what is needed to refuel a traditional gasoline engine.  The dynamic design gives some preview of the successor to the more conventionally styled FCX Clarity, a hydrogen powered production car that was leased in a limited quantity of 200 cars in Southern California, the only place in the United States that has a number of hydrogen fuel stations.

February 7 - 2015 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe The AMG version of this sleek fastback SUV achieves 557 hp from a twin turbocharged 5.5 liter V8, with a somewhat more amped S variant producing an additional 27 horses for 585 hp.

February 6 - 2015 Nissan GT-R LM NISMO Nissan newest Le Mans challenger takes a very unusual path to building a race car. The GT-R LM NISMO obtains 1200 hp from a 3 liter V6, and features a kinetic energy recovery system for obtaining power through the brakes. Oh, and it's also front engine and front wheel drive.


2015 Nissan GT-R LM NISMO

February 5 - 2015 Porsche Cayman GT4  The Porsche Cayman has always occupied an unusual position in the Porsche lineup. The lighter weight, mid-engined layout, and shapely styling make it very appealing as a sports car, but it often seems Porsche has not allowed this model to fully bloom due to the desire to keep it slotted below the 911. That may be changing with the announcement of the new Cayman GT4. At 385 hp, it is a substantial 45 hp jump over the current Cayman GTS, and even a 35 hp jump over the base 911.

February 5 - 2015 Porsche 911 Turbo Aerokit  Porsche is making a new aerodynamic body kit available, with a focus on aesthetics and increased downforce for better roadholding, while maintaining the same drag coefficient.

February 3 - 2015 Ferrari 488 GTB  Ferrari has announced the 488 GTB as a replacement for the 458 Italia. The design is more evolutionary than revolutionary, but is also more sculpted and aggressive than the outgoing model. Power now comes from a turbocharged 3.9 liter V8. At 661 hp, it produces 99 more horses than its predecessor. 0-62 mph happens in a mere 3 seconds. Top speed is over 205 mph.

January 28 - 2015 Ruffer Performance Chevrolet Corvette Stingray HPE700  Ruffer Performance heads the European headquarters for Hennessey Performance, so it's only natural that when they decided to tune the Corvette Stingray, that they began with Hennessey parts, in this case the HPE700 upgrade. This consists of a supercharger with stainless steel intercooler, high flow cylinder heads, titan valves and reinforced valve springs, more aggressive camshaft, a new intake with K&N Racing filter, and new injectors.

January 18 - 2015 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS  Porsche celebrates the 50th anniversary of their 911 Targa model by making it available in the more powerful GTS version. The 4 GTS offers AWD with a 430 hp flat-6. To put that in perspective, this naturally aspirated motor is producing more horsepower than the Porsche 996 Turbo from 2004. Despite the additional 30 hp, fuel economy of the 4 GTS is identical with that of the 911 Targa 4S.


2015 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS

January 18 - 2015 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S  Porsche has debuted a revamped version of their Cayenne Turbo S, the flagship model in the Cayenne line. Improvements for 2015 include a 4.8 liter that has been massaged to produce 570 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, an improvement of 20 hp and 37 lb-ft over the previous engine. This performance is one of the factors that improves acceleration times from 4.5 seconds down to 4.1 for the run from 0-62 mph. Another improvement is the use of integral turbochargers which are now housed directly in the exhaust manifolds. They offer more instantaneous response as well as improving combustion.

January 15 - 2015 Hyundai Santa Cruz Crossover Truck Concept  This visionary crossover truck concept from Hyundai hearkens to the days of the El Camino/Ranchero, or the more contemporary Holden Ute. The projected target audience for the Santa Cruz are what Hyundai calls Urban Adventurers, weekend outdoorspeople who would prefer a relatively compact and efficient vehicle for the time spent in more crowded/urban environments, but with the hauling capacity needed for getaways.

January 16 - 2015 Lexus GS-F  The goal of the Lexus GS F is to merge the handling and sportiness of a sports car with the comfort of a luxury sedan. The starting point for the car is the GS 350 F Sport, but then things are taken to a new level, with a more powerful engine, enhanced chassis, and a suspension system exclusive to the model.

January 16 - 2016 Lincoln MKX  This next generation MKX crossover showcases a new, more rounded design that is also lower and slightly larger than its predecessor.


2016 Lincoln MKX

January 14 - 2015 Infiniti Q60 Concept  Infiniti describes this concept as a preview of their next sports coupe, and a replacement for the G37. It will feature a 3 liter twin turbocharged V6 to replace the current 3.7 liter naturally aspirated V6, so expect a boost in power. Infiniti claims a significant reduction in fuel consumption, which is another bonus.


2015 Infiniti Q60 Concept

January 14 - 2015 Chevrolet Bolt EV Concept  The Chevrolet Bolt is a pure electric concept that is a preview of a future production car that will have a range over 200 miles with a price of around $30,000, after the $7500 federal tax credit. This range, which greatly surpasses that of any similarly sized car in its price class, would make electric a viable choice for  millions of potential buyers.

January 13 - 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider This beautiful new roadster from Alfa Romeo hearkens back to the days of the 1966-1994 Spider that is still probably the best known Alfa Romeo in North America. Today, the curvaceous styling and compact size of the 4C mark it as a worthy competitor to the Lotus Elise.


2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

January 13 - 2016 Ford Shelby GT350R Mustang  The flat-plane crankshaft is a special beast. Its near-perfect balance obviates the need for counterweights. With less mass and inertia, the engine can rev up and down more quickly and easily. Manufacturers like Ferrari, Lotus, Porsche, and McLaren have all opted for the flat-plane V8 design, and now Ford brings this uncompromising approach to bear in their new 5.2 liter DOHC V8 for the Shelby GT350R. Ford claims it is the most powerful naturally aspirated production engine ever built by the company.

January 13 - 2015 Volkswagen Cross Coupe GTE Concept Volkswagen is planning a new three row, seven-seater mid-size SUV for the 2017 model year that they claim will be one of the most important models in the company's history. This concept gives an early glimpse of what to expect.

January 12 - 2016 Ford GT  One of the greatest racing victories in history was the 1-2-3 placement set by a trio of GT40s at the 24 Hours Le Mans back in 1966. 50 years later, Ford returns with this third version of the GT, and this looks to be the most dynamic variation yet.


2016 Ford GT

January 12 - 2016 Acura NSX  The NSX has finally returned in full production guise. Power comes from a twin turbocharged DOHC V6 slanted at 75 degrees and backed up with a three electric motor hybrid system. Power travels through a completely new 9-speed DCT. Power is transmitted to all wheels with two electric motors up front, and the engine and another electric motor driving the rear. The front motors utilize dynamic torque vectoring for improved acceleration and braking.


2016 Acura NSX

January 11 - 2016 Buick Cascada Convertible  With the introduction of their first convertible since the Reatta in 1991, Buick looks to remake their image with this youthful 2+2 design. The model is essentially a rebadged Opel/Vauxhall Cascada, but that makes it no less welcome, especially as Opel & Vauxhall are not available in North America.

January 10 - 2015 Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion The world's automotive manufacturers are preparing for a future of autonomous driving vehicles, where most cars can simply drive on their own to a specified destination. A car without the need for driver input raises a number of questions and possibilities regarding overall design and possibilities. Daimler's Dieter Zetsche describes the transformation of the vehicle interior into a "mobile living space." Enter the Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion concept. It is capable of seating four people on swiveling seats who can turn to face one another in a loung-type environment. The interior is lined with organic materials, including open-pore walnut wood and soft white nappa leather contrasing with polished aluminum and glass surfaces. Six display screens are integrated into the instrument panel and rear and side panels which allow passengers to interact with the vehicle via touch, hand gestures, and eye tracking. The interior is reached through the concept's 4 doors, with the 2 rear doors being rear-hinged, aka suicide doors.

January 10 - 2015 Lister Cars Knobbly The beautiful Lister-Jaguars raced successfully in 1957-58, with a high note being a victory at the British Empire Trophy in 1957. Cars from this time period became known as Knobblies, in reference to their particularly swoopy body styling.  Lister recently announced that they would be making 10 more Knobblies built to the same specifications and even using the same manufacturing jigs.

January 10 - 2015 GMC Canyon Nightfall Edition The new GMC Canyon Nightfall Edition is a blackened appearance package available on both 2WD and 4WD SLE crew cab models.

January 7 - 1985 Sinclair C5  A curious footnote in the history of electric vehicles, the Sinclair C5 was manufactured for a single year at the Hoover factory in Wales. While the output of 9000 vehicles in time sounds pretty respectable, it fell well short of Sir Clive Sinclair's hope of selling 100,000 a year.

January 6 - 2015 Ariel Nomad  Ariel is hoping to build upon the Atom's success with a new car based on similar design concepts that is geared for on-road/off-road use. The design, with its exoskeleton chassis, does draw from that of the Atom, but similarly from that of traditional dune buggies. However, the typical dune buggie is not going to have this level of chassis development and sophisticated suspension. The latter features double unequal length and adjustable wishbones mounted on high-angle metalastic rubber bushings with high grade outer ball joints.

January 5 - 2015 Donkervoort D8 GTO Bilster Berg Edition  In honor of their breaking the lap record for street legal produciton cars at the Bilster Berg circuit, the Dutch manufacturer Donkervoort has created this special edition D8 GTO to commemorate the impressive victory.
