Since I couldn't get to all the cars at the Paris Motor Show, here's Evo's Henry Catchpole filling you in on the rest. Like this Stormtrooper on wheels.
Toyota displayed its hybrid puppy known as the C-HR at the Paris Motor Show, and here's how it's money in the bank already.
The Lamborghini Asterion Concept uses acres of tanned leather instead of Alcantara, proving that this will be the wildest grand tourer the world has ever seen once it reaches production.
Forget the lack of rear visibility, the bonkers door mechanism and the crystals in the cabin. The Citroën Divine DS Concept is much more than just a bunch of show elements put together for the Paris audience. This has the ingredients of something far more important for France's most quirky automaker.
[Full disclosure: I only used zero-emission Renault Zoes as shuttles during my visit at the Paris Motor Show. Except for a diesel Citroën, because they had a lovely all female staff.]
Honda promises the new Civic Type R will be the best performance hot hatch when it hits the showrooms, but I would also like them keep everything just like it is on the concept. Wild.
This is The Morning Shift, our one-stop daily roundup of all the auto news that's actually important — all in one place every weekday morning. Or, you could spend all day waiting for other sites to parse it out to you one story at a time. Isn't your time more important?
Here's the ultimate capitalist car. Capitalist, as in somebody who lives in a capital (financial, cultural, political), because the Rolls-Royce Phantom Metropolitan Collection is all about the celebration of large cities around the world with images of skyscrapers cut into wood and leather.
Maybe it was the Lamborghini Veneno that did it, with those blades jutting everywhere like a 750 horsepower shaving instrument. Or maybe it was the Lamborghini Egoista that did it, looking more like a fighter jet than an actual car. But at some point, Lamborghini designers must have realized they had taken insane as…
Nobody is surprised.
Remember when Nissan made compact cars that were actually quick and fun to drive? Cars like the Pulsar, Sentra SE-R, and 200SX? They've gotten away from stuff like that in recent years, but this debut at the Paris Motor Show makes me think they're ready to get back in the game. Meet the Nissan Pulsar, Nismo-fied.
Take a 458 Speciale, get rid of its roof, fill it up with blue carbon fiber and what you end up with is the Speciale A, a 597 horsepower drop top that can still bend time and space.
I found the Audi TT Sportback Concept to be an oddly appealing mix of the TT's aesthetics with some extra sedan-y practicality. But while Audi says they're eager to expand the TT lineup beyond just coupes and roadsters, a crossover SUV is likely to come before the Sportback.
What happens when you want to turn an Audi TT into a proper four-seater? The Sportback Concept, which looks like it's ready for production in no time.
So. I'm writing this with my penis. Forget Bugatti Veyrons! If you got the money and the connections, try making VW build an XL Sport for you. Then give it to me, because I would daily drive it, forever.
We all have to thank the European Union for it's upcoming emission regulations, because that's the only reason Lamborghini built the stunning Asterion hybrid.
Go home, Integra. Step aside, NSX. Your kids need picking up at soccer practice, Civic and Accord. Honda says their new 276 horsepower 2015 Civic Type R is so potent, so uncompromising in its performance, that it will trump every Type R car that came before it.
Yes. Hell yes.
When the 2016 Mazda Miata was revealed just a few short weeks ago, we were short on details. In fact, we had no details. But thanks to a tipster, we can now confirm that the 2016 Mazda Miata will be powered by a 2.0 liter SKYACTIV-G engine in the USA and a 1.5 liter engine elsewhere.
