Following the introduction of Bentley’s new super-luxury Bentayga SUV at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, executives at Cadillac and Mercedes-Benz are now licking their lips at plans of pushing their SUVs into the same segment.
The Jaguar F-PACE is finally here to do what Range Rovers do so well: be bigger and sell like hotcakes. It’s spacious alright, but is it as sexy as a proper Jaguar should be? Let’s chat with the guy who designed it.
The latest from Sant’Agata, the Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder, has got a soft top and a loud V10. It’ll be great. Now let’s just move on, because the Urus SUV is set to be ready in 2018 to most likely be their first turbocharged and hybrid car. And here’s why building it will be Lamborghini’s biggest challenge yet.
We somehow made it to day two with out getting kicked out of the Frankfurt Motor Show despite what I can only describe as a Lederhosen/Wienerschnitzel incident at the BMW party. Bill Caswell would have been proud. (Bill Caswell probably would have gotten us kicked out had he been there, but that’s another thing…
The compact family/grocery/guy in a cheap suit/whatever you throw at it-hauler Opel Astra is that brand’s most important car, and this K-generation had better sell like hotcakes now that General Motors is down $900 million. But why wouldn’t it?
This concept based on the brilliant Citroën C4 Cactus is just the perfect third car to have in California. Or in his case, I guess the 300th.
After selling more than three and a half million of them, for next year, Toyota felt it’s time to go weird with the Prius. And it works!
As the Frankfurt Motor Show dies down and we all sleep easy at night with dreams of a Montecarlo Blue Alfa Romeo Giulia, I thought we could process some of the big ideas a lot of automakers hinted at with this year’s show.
Brabus, responsible for some of the most aggressively ostentatious tuner cars, has passed its brush over the Tesla Model S. And it’s almost elegant! Is nobody brave enough to put some offensive flaps and stance on this car?
You know how the three German premium manufacturers don’t just have stands at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but their own buildings? Well, the Alfa Romeo Giulia didn’t need to be that shouty. Everybody knew where to find her.
Hey, remember way back in 2013 when Hyundai said they were going to launch a performance sub-brand one letter of the alphabet down from BMW’s? You don’t? Well they are. And at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week, they reaffirmed their commitment to performance brought to you by the letter N.
The Mazda Koeru is a crossover concept built to give us an idea about where their KODO design language will evolve in the near future. And it’s got some good lines.
As some of you may know, I have been busy for just about the last year keeping up with all the crazy automotive mayhem going on with the upcoming Bond film, SPECTRE. Well folks, this is what it has all been building to.
Let’s count out 14 seconds: one, two, three, four, five, six, (bored yet?) nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen. That’s how many seconds faster the new Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is around the Nürburgring over a BMW M4.
The Frankfurt Motor Show is so massive (12 huge buildings spread over a large chunk of Frankfurt real estate) that Jalopnik sent both Máté and I to double team it. Máté is covering all of the big reveals and serious stuff leaving me to go on the hunt for everything else that makes Frankfurt one of the must see shows.
The 2016 Mini Clubman exists because the world deserves a premium compact that one can jam all their junk into.
There are three key selling points for the Bentley Bentayga: Expensive stuff at the back, more expensive stuff at the front and the most expensive grill this side of a Rolls-Royce Phantom. Let’s break them down.
BMW has given us a glorious double-whammy of M6s and red and blue stripes as they finally showed their M6 GT3 race car and the similarly-livried M6 Competition edition, available to us mere mortals. Well, mortals with money. These are both fantastic-looking cars.
Everyone thinks Porsche’s Mission E could be the next electric Panamera. But it’s smaller than that, which means you might be looking at the next 911 instead despite the four doors. No luxurious rear seats, but speed and beauty this time with an exciting concept that we’re hoping hits the streets by 2019.
