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.

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.

Infiniti claims a significant reduction in fuel consumption, which is another bonus.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

January 4 - 2014 McLaren P1 The McLaren F1 of the 1990s was perhaps the most defining supercar of its time. Maybe even of all time. To this day, it is the fastest naturally aspirated series production road car ever made, with a top speed of 231 mph. Only 64 of the standard street cars were ever made, 106 cars in total counting the various racecars and prototypes. On August 2013, chassis 066 was sold for an astounding $8.47 million dollars. The F1 was a very special car.

The legendary status of the F1 gives the P1 a very hard act to follow. In many respects, it succeeds brilliantly, though it is arguably not the uniquely single-minded creation that the F1 was. Gone on the P1 is the 3 seat arrangement with the driver in the center, the heavy use of pure 24 carat gold foil as a heat shield, and the phenomenally light weight of 2509 lbs for a full-bore supercar. In its place is a heavier but far more powerful car with an output of 903 hp. In place of the naturally aspirated V12, the P1 features a twin-turbocharged 3.8 liter V8 hybrid system that can do 0-62 mph in a mere 2.8 seconds. The 231 mph top speed of the F1 is now at an electronically limited 217 mph. The F1 was a bit of an anomaly even for its time, whereas the hybrid P1 is very much a product of the current decade.

January 4 - 2014 McLaren P1 GTR  The P1 GTR builds on the hybrid P1 to create an even more extreme track car. McLaren has increased the power of the twin-turbocharged 3.8 liter V8 from 903 hp to 986 hp.

December 24 - 2014 PP-Performance Ferrari F12berlinetta  At 730 hp, the stock F12berlinetta is amazing enough in its own right. PP-Performance upped output to 784 hp, and the result is a Ferrari that can do 0-62 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds.

December 19 - 2014 Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo The Gran Turismo game has become a showcase over the years for wild concepts from different manufacturers, and the Vision Gran Turismo certainly falls in that tradition. The swoopy supercar design is not all appearance, but is based on calculations and behaviors that would be expected from a car of this construction. Into the mix goes a front mid-engine design with a 45:55 front/rear weight distribution that allows for active rear drift.

December 11 - 2014 Posaidon Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG RS 850  The 549 hp E 63 AMG is not a car that many would consider underpowered, but for those that would consider it in anyway inadequate, Posaidon has the answer with an exceptional 841 hp and 959 lb-ft of torque.

December 3 - 2015 Ferrari FXX K  Ferrari has taken one of the world's most extreme supercars and created a track version of it, thus making it even more extreme. The hybrid FXX K produces a prodigious 1035 horsepower, of which 848 hp of it is from the engine, with the additional 187 hp coming by way of electric motor.  No word on performance figures as of yet, but you can expect the fastest Ferrari ever built and sold to the public.

This Maybach has some of the most comfortable looking seats in the history of the automobile, and with a special adjustment kinematic system for the back seats, you can expect them to live up that promise.

2015 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class
