April 24 - 2015 Chevrolet FNR  GM celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Chevrolet brand in China with this visionary look at autonomous driving.

April 24 - 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition This 650 hp variant of the Z06 is inspired by the C7.R race car, and perhaps surprisingly, has considerably more horsepower than the track car, with 650 hp vs 491 hp. Granted, that 491 hp from a naturally aspirated 5.5 liter V8 is only the out-of-the-box starting point, and the C7.R weighs much less, at 2745 lbs including the driver vs about 3300 lbs minus the driver, but the message is still clear: you are getting a very powerful car.

April 22 - 2015 McLaren 540C Coupe In less than a month's time from its debut, the $184,900 570S has lost its title for the world's least expensive McLaren. For a mere $165,000 you can drive home your own 533 hp McLaren. The reason for the new McLaren is apparently a topic as mundane as taxes in China, as that country places a steep fee on cars with over 550 hp. Luckily, this car inspired by the peculiarities of the Chinese market will be sold outside of it over 30 countries, including the United States.

April 22 - 2015 Vorsteiner Lamborghini Aventador Zaragoza This Vorsteiner package includes the Zaragoza front spoiler and aero wing, along with Aventador-V side skirts and rear diffuser.

April 19 - 2015 Audi prologue allroad The allroad takes that same design language and turns it into an equally dynamic 5 door AWD estate that could easily be the new torchbearer for the A4 and A6 allroad models. And just to make that point clear, Audi has given it a twin-turbo V8 hybrid system that produces 734 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque.

April 19 - 2015 Chevrolet COPO Camaro The very first COPO Camaro of 2015 pulled in $700,000 at the Barret-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. If that number seems a little rich, the money raised is going to charity, the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans. And, it's a hell of car.

April 18 - 2015 Peugeot 308 R HYbrid The 500 hp 308 R HYbrid with all-wheel drive is a one-off concept with enough good ideas to let you know Peugeot sees performance in its future.

April 15 - 2016 Cadillac ELR Introduced in 2013, the original ELR was basically a fine car that had a painfully high sticker price of about $75,000 that, to put it mildly, was simply not realistic. They moved so slowly that discounts of up to $14,000 were offered just to get them off of dealer lots. Cadillac seems to have learned from that mistake, as the new ELR comes in at a much more appropriate $58,495 price tag while offering considerable improvements over the prior model. Those improvements include an over 25 percent increase in horsepower and torque, which allows an improvement in the 0-60 mph time of 1.5 second

April 15 - 2015 Startech Range Rover Pickup Startech has introduced a new design configuration for the Range Rover that gives it a profile and utility similar to the Cadillac Escalade EXT.

April 13 - 2015 Vaeth Mercedes-Benz GLA 200 Tuning is not merely the province of the most powerful of vehicles, but can simply be a tool to get more fun and function out of driver. This GLA 200 produced 154 hp stock, but with the V20 tuning kit from Vaeth, power was raised 27 horses to 181 hp. Similarly, the stock 184 lb-ft of torque was raised to a more substantial 229 lb-ft. These gains are made possible by changes to the engine electronics.

April 12 - 2015 Citroen Aircross Concept A stylish crossover that follows the Citroen penchant for unorthodox design, the Aircross is a development of the process started by the C4 Cactus, a vehicle that went little changed from a 2013 concept to a 2014 production car.

April 12 - 2015 Kaege Porsche Macan S Diesel  German tuner Kaege has a go at the Macan, the newer Porsche model that has still seen relatively little in the way of customization.

April 10 - 2015 Klassen Ferrari F12berlinetta  Riding 21" front and 22" rear, these 6061-T6 forged aluminum wheels in Satin Gold from Klassen iD have found their way onto this Nero Pastello black Ferrari F12berlinetta.

April 10 - 2015 Vorsteiner Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan This Mercedes-Benz E350 showcases Vorsteiner V-FF 103 Flow Forged wheels. The 20" rims are shod with 245/35/20 in front, and 275/30/20 in the rear, and feature Vorsteiner's Carbon Graphite finish.

April 7 - 2015 Kia Novo Concept A Korean company best known for its range of affordable economy cars, Kia has a knack for producing interesting concepts, like the 2011 GT, which is slated for production, as well as last year's GT4 Stinger. Here, they managed to pull off something that is not always easy: a streamlined 4 door fastback that doesn't look like an aesthetic compromise.

April 6 - 2016 Cadillac CT6 Cadillac is betting heavily on an advanced body incorporating 11 different materials with all aluminum exterior panels to give it a considerable edge in terms of weight and stiffness. 50 million hours of computational analysis went into the architecture's development, and involved the creation of 21 new patents. 591 feet of advanced structural adhesives are used, and 13 high-pressure aluminum die castings in the lower body construction save weight, and reduce structural complexity and interior noise. The results on paper are impressive. Dimensions and overall spaciousness are on a par with the BMW 7 series, while weighing under 3700 lbs, or nearly 1000 lbs less than the BMW sedan.

April 6 - 2015 Vorsteiner Lamborghini Huracan Verona Edizione  A new wing package for the Huracan. The pre-preg carbon fiber blade is available in matte or gloss lacquer. The aluminum goose neck wing uprights are matte silver or matte black.

April 3 - 2015 Porsche Panamera Edition The Edition is a special options package for the Panamera. From the outside, t is almost indistinguishable from the standard Panamera, with glossy black trim on the side windows being one of the few giveaways. The interior features a Sport Design steering wheel, two-color part leather upholstery in black & Luxor Beige with the Porsche crest embossed on the headrests. A 585 watt Bose system with 14 speakers is also part of the package

April 3 - 2015 Porsche Boxster Spyder Porsche has been pulling out the stops as of late with their two mid-engine, entry-level sports cars. First it was the Cayman GT4 with 385 hp, and now the Boxster Spyder with 375 hp.


2015 Porsche Boxster Spyder

April 2 - 2015 Lincoln Continental Concept What the 911 is to Porsche, the Continental is to Lincoln. While Lincoln has produced some compelling cars over the years, there is no Lincoln model that has the iconic status and rich history that the Continental name does. That gives the new Continental Concept a lot to live up to.

April 2 - 2015 Vorsteiner Audi S3 Riviera Blue This beautiful Riviera Blue Audi S3 rides on Vorsteiner V-FF 103 forged aluminum wheels, which the company claims is about 25% lighter than a similar cast wheel. The 19" wheels are finished in Mystic Black, with 225/35/19 tires front and rear.

April 1 - 2015 McLaren 570S The entry-level model from McLaren makes its world debut in New York this week. Granted, entry-level is a relative term, and for a bonafide hypercar manufacturer like McLaren, in this case it means about $180,000. McLaren even describes it as their first car in the sports car segment, below the rarefied air of supercardom. As such, its natural competitors will be models like the Porsche 911 Turbo, Audi R8 V10, and Ferrari California.

March 30 - 2014 Zagato Lamborghini 5-95 The most immediate takeaway from the 5-95 is that it looks like nothing that Lamborghini has ever built. Maybe a little Gallardo in the side profile. Maybe. Maybe some vague hint of the Lamborghini Cala in the flowing shape. Overall though, this is really a standalone concept, with the exception of another earlier Lamborghini design by Zagato 19 years ago, the Raptor.

March 29 - 2015 Moab Easter Jeep Safari  7 intriguing new concepts make their appearance at the 49th Annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah which is going on from March 28-April 5.

March 27 - 2016 Jaguar XF The Jaguar XF makes its debut with a splash, or rather, no splash at all when it successfully crossed the River Thames by Canary Wharf by traveling a full 240 meters (787 feet) on high wire, breaking a new world record. Poised 60 feet above the water, perhaps the coolest part of the visual was the massive Jaguar emblem used for ballast.

March 27 - 2015 Fiat 500 Vintage '57 The Vintage '57 is a stylistic package that brings back some of the design cues from the original 500, produced from 1957 to 1975.

March 23 - 2015 Buick Avenir Concept The full size Avenir is a showcase of Buick design themes highlighted over the past few decades and utilized on a full-size sedan. The sloping rear deck pays homage to the third generation boat-tail Buick Riviera built from 1971-1973. The front features Buick's signature waterfall grille, with a horizontal band and the return of Buick's tri-shield insignia. The side has the sweep spear crease that has been a part of Buick design for many decades, and famous on such classics as the 1953 Buick Sklyark.

March 23 - 2015 Posaidon Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG The stock G63 AMG achieves 544 hp and 561 lb-ft. While that would be enough for most people, Posaidon wanted to take it a little further. Though the use of new and more powerful turbochargers in conjunction with a modified air intake, modified intercooler, new engine softwre, and a new sports exhaust system with wider diameter and better airflow, the net result is a 830 hp and a mammoth 996 lb-ft.

March 23 - 2014 Mini Citysurfer Concept  The Citysurfer concept boasts a number of attractive features in an electric scooter. It is lightweight at only 40 lbs.

March 18  - 2015 AC Schnitzer BMW Z4 ACZ4 AC Schnitzer has created this one-off concept with an unusual twist: power comes via an N57S 3 liter inline-6 diesel with 3 turbochargers of varying sizes. Stock, the engine produces 381 hp, but that's not quite enough for what AC Schnitzer had in mind. AC Schnitzer is a little coy on details, but their modifications rang up engine output to 430 hp and 546 lb-ft of torque.

March 18 - 2015 Mini Countryman Park Lane  The Park Lane is a mostly cosmetic package for the successful Countryman design. The Earl Grey metallic base color is combined with Oak Red on the roof and sideview mirrors, as well sport stripes on the hood, tailgate, and side. The hood graphic is worth noting for its trident design. The side scuttles also feature Oak Red housing the side turn indicators, with the whole surrounded by chrome.

March 16 - 2015 Zolland Design Volvo Amazon Custom Wagon This beautiful custom begins with the Volvo Amazon Station Wagon and molds it into a two door custom. While the obvious comparison is with Volvo's beautiful P1800ES Sports Estate from 1972-1973, the design draws much of its inspiration from the 1955-1957 Chevrolet Nomad, especially with touches like the B-Pillar and the chrome strips on the rear tailgate

March 12 - 2015 BMW iM Concept Design by Idries Noah The iM is a beautiful concept for a hybrid sports car that draws inpiration from the i8, but with a more aggressive and sculpted design.

March 8 - 2015 Mercedes-Benz Concept V-ision e The V-ision e is a plug-in hybrid with a very impressive combination of luxury, performance, carrying capacity, and fuel economy. The hybrid design features an inline-4 producing 210 hp. Combined with electric power a total output of 333 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque is achieved. This gives a 0-62 mph time of 6.1, which is both very respectable for a minivan and faster than the current top V 250 BlueTEC. As a plug-in hybrid, the car can run an average of 31 miles on pure electric power. And when you do switch to full hybrid mode with petrol power, the car achieves 94 mpg.

March 6 - 2016 Audi R8 The second generation Audi R8 makes its appearance, and the theme is evolution, not revolution. In spite of a complete redesign, the new R8 is very similar in overall appearance to the old one. The new R8 is less curvacious, and more taut and angular. The influence of the new Audi TT is apparent.


2016 Audi R8

March 6 - 2016 Audi R8 e-tron The Audi R8 e-tron made its first appearance at the 2009 Frankfurt Show. Audi produced 10 prototypes of the car over the next few years, then ultimately pulled the plug on the project in 2013 due to the car's limited range of 134 miles. Last year, Audi decided to move forward on the project again thanks to advances in battery technology. The new e-tron is a far more practical vehicle than the first. The range has roughly doubled to an impressive 280 miles.

March 6 - 2015 Honda Civic Type R  The Civic Type R last saw production in 2010, but its returning to the global scene once again. The newest version features a huge step up in performance output.

March 4 - 2015 Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce  The new Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce, or simply the SV for short, follows a tried and true tradition of making an extreme sportscar even more extreme. They reduced weight by 110 lbs while increasing power 50 hp. The result is a car that does 0-62 mph in an amazing 2.8 seconds, and with enough space, it can max out at a top speed of over 217 mph.

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.


2015 Rolls-Royce Phantom Serenity

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.


2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

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.


2015 Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept

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 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.


2015 BMW M GT Concept Design by Idries Noah

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 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.


2016 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe

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.


2015 2 Series Gran Tourer

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.
