Jaguar’s ETO division, a little-known but intense group of specialty vehicle creators launched last year, has one-upped the XKR-S with this, the XKR-S GT. Track-tuned, but built for the street, this is likely the hottest version of the XK Coupe we’ll see–at least in this generation. The ETO, or Engineered to Order, division has equipped the 2014…

It’s a seemingly contradictory set of goals: executive luxury sedan comfort and style, with track-capable handling and supercar levels of power. But for some reason, it just works. Case in point: initial impressions of the Nürburgring-tuned 2014 Jaguar XJR. We’re not going to get epistemological here. We don’t know how we know the formula…

Buick is introducing updates for its LaCrosse and Regal models for the 2014 model year, with both cars scheduled to be unveiled to the public at the 2013 New York Auto Show this week. We saw the 2014 LaCrosse yesterday, and today it’s the 2014 Regal’s turn in the spotlight. Only minor changes have been introduced, which makes sense as…

The 2013 New York Auto Show isn’t until tomorrow but already the new model debuts are coming hard and fast. However, there’s also plenty happening outside of New York as you’ll see in the links below. We drove the 2014 Aston Martin Rapide S and found it to be a brilliant grand tourer that comes close to offering a sports car…

It’s clear that Ford is planning something special for the 50th anniversary of its iconic Mustang, and it’s equally clear that the car’s revised design may be the best kept secret in the automotive world. Last weekend, images of clay models made the rounds, quickly polarizing fans into two camps: those who believe the mock-ups…

The Texas Mile may need to be renamed to the “Hennessey Mile,” or even the “Mark Heidaker Mile,” since one thing is becoming clear: the tuner and car owner apparently own the top speed record at the semiannual event, held in Beeville, Texas. In March of 2012, driver Sean Kennedy piloted the Hennessey Ford GT, owned by Mark…

After recent turbulence, legendary Italian design house Pininfarina has posted its first profit since 2004. From a loss of 11.5 million euros ($14.8 million) in 2011, the company has posted a profit of 32.9 million euros ($42.3 million) for 2012, thanks mostly to a one-time gain. Over the years Pininfarina has suffered several major setbacks…

Latvian tuner and manufacturer of armored vehicles Dartz has come across what’s possibly the only SUV tougher and more extreme than its own line of Prombron monsters, the new Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6. Rather than trying to outmatch the tough-as-nails AMG off-roader, Dartz has imagined its own, personalized version, which we’re sure…

We first caught wind of the Weber FasterOne supercar as far back as 2007, when it consisted of nothing but a few drawings on a piece of paper and some renderings on a computer. Even back then, however, the people behind the car were adamant it would rival the Bugatti Veyron in performance, both in terms of acceleration and top speed. That was…
