Z/28 is back!
+Chevrolet just debuted a refreshed Camaro. That's nice and all, but there's also a new, 500-horsepower Camaro Z/28--and that's certifiably awesome.

I know I could win this bracket challenge. Then again, I was one of the people who decided on the winner.
Good morning, Google+! In honor of everybody's favorite collegiate basketball tournament, we decided to pit the top eight mid-size sedans from +Ford Motor Company, +Nissan, +Toyota USA, +Honda, +Mazda USA , +Volkswagen USA, +Kia Motors Worldwide, and +Hyundai Worldwide against each other. We call it Midsize Madness.

I had a lot of fun helping film this video. I mostly drove the camera car, but I had the most fun driving the #Corvette in the final scene.

2 of America's very best! I'm a Chevy guy myself, but I would not hesitate in owning the Viper.

I drove an insanely expensive Bentley and I thought about old Chrysler minivans and transmissions. Because everything else about the car was almost perfect.

Here are some quick thoughts on the Mitsubishi Evo. It's basically a face tattoo you can drive.

This is cool. I drove this car in 2011. The VW empire is so crazy. They have everything from the Veyron to a 261 mpg car. Here's the link to my drive:
It's been 11 years since we first heard about +Volkswagen Deutschland's attempts to make a car that uses 1 liter of fuel per 100km (235 mpg). At long last, VW's calling it: the XL1 is going to production. And it goes 261, not 235, miles per gallon.

It looks like the EV-1, if the EV-1 were bad-ass (which aesthetically anyways, it is not).
