When you drive a $100,000 car, you have dozens of fantastic options -- supercars, limo's, SUVs, you name it. But once you are hooked on the spooky-fast Tesla Model S, it is hard to go back to a regular 911 or AMG. But how to update the Model S details to match the coolness of…

Most of the time with these digital colorizer articles, the shades shown are pure fantasy. They cannot be ordered bespoke on anything short of a Rolls-Royce or Bentley. The Viper is joining this exclusive club of absolute customization for 2015 -- with 8000 color shades available to order, plus dozens of other trim choices. This…

Betting directionally on the value of supercars is tougher than the stock or art or commodities markets. Where the natural trend for the above indices is to scale upward, most classic cars are generally never going to appreciate over time. This makes car collecting more of a passion play than the normal art auction scene.…

Chevy is making the link racecar/roadcar link explicit for 2016.  Corvette racecars and the top-line Z06 for 2016 now share an even more striking similarity via the limited-run C7.R Edition. This special model debuts the new carbon-fiber hood and new wheel option, along with the new yellow tintcoat paint color. The similarity to the racecar…

Mercedes-Benz has made many fantastic wagons in its long history, but they hit a sweet spot in the 1930s in terms of perfecting the wagon as a long-distance limo. This black/black LWB Pullman has a huge lounge back seat and even a cloth sunroof to let in the breeze! This car ran a straight six…

The new Ferrari 488 GTB configurator is live and stunning! Fantastic new design details in the 458 --> 488 update are visible in these 3D animated visuals. Two dozen colors, six wheel styles, brakes and carbon upgrades galore. The builder is actually a new setup as well, with streamlined options that let you fly through…

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4x4 By Ken Glassman   The Jeep came into existence during World War II, when the US Government needed a small agile 4-wheel drive vehicle that could get through mud, snow, and sand, and carry 4 soldiers, crawl up and down hills, ford small streams, tow a light artillery piece,…

This is a cool one. As you may know, Mercedes had a spotty record of hanging on to rare classics among the hundreds of models the company has produced. This applies double for the racecars - which are often either lost to track damage or to privateer teams. Either way, gone from the safety of…

This 2014 Exocet Race visited the Flyin' Miatas booth at Road Atlanta last weekend, and caused quite a stir in its panel-free glory. Yes, it is just wearing its birthday suit in my Atlanta photos, but the 2014 kits actually all feature resdesigned panels and upgraded features. Here is the low-down of what this Exomotive…

Finishing out this quick/quirky series of classic wagons with a pair of Mercedes-Benz commercial cars. One a panel van 1952 170VA Station Wagon and the other a LWB 170S-V Ambulance. The 5-door brought in around $75,000 at the RM Auctions London 2013 sale, where the panel van around $60,000.   1952 Mercedes-Benz 170VA Panel Wagon…

The fast wagon is the ultimate in car-guy and car-girl coolness. A low and sleek wagon silhouette is instantly cooler than any SUV, yet still looks the part in the mountains with skis on the roof. As part of a series of articles, we'll highlight all the coolest estate cars at the train station. Call…

Lots of incredible Hellcat Challenger coverage on the site lately, including this black/black stunner from the Houston Auto show, plus a Charger Hellcat drive review over here.
