Looking to trade up or get rid of an older ride? There are a couple ways to do it: trade it in or sell it yourself. If speed is a factor, by all means trade it in – just realize that a dealer needs to make a profit too and won’t give you maximum value. If you have the time, energy and motivation, selling your vehicle privately allows you to make significantly more money back on your investment.

And yes, selling it yourself is an investment. The phrase “you need to spend money to make money” definitely applies here. We've outlined the things you need to do (and the things you can probably skip) along with the various costs involved from cleaning, inspecting, advertising and more. Click through to see our top tips for selling your car.

A week before the Geneva Motor Show, Aston Martin teased the Vulcan – a glorious 7.0L literal fire-breathing, track-only V12 supercar reported to push out over 800 horsepower. We’re beyond excited for its upcoming reveal in all its glory. Until then, feast your eyes upon possibly one of the sexiest cars in existence as we walk you through the details.

There’s something about West Vancouver that attracts rare and mythical creatures. Can’t be the weather, though – while the West Coast can’t complain about the format its precipitation comes in, not when the good folks of Toronto are up to their eyeballs in crusty, salty snow, it’s certainly rainforest conditions today.

However, just like the Amazon basin, the rain-soaked mountains to the North of Vancouver are home to one of the most endangered species in North America: the fast wagon. Travel West from the Lions Gate Bridge into the Dundarave area and you’ll start seeing them crop up. BMW Tourings. Mercedes E-Class Wagons. Audi Avants.

On the busy, brick-lined street of Clyde Avenue, you’ll find West Vancouver’s sole dealership. A narrow affair, tucked in between a bike shop and a beauty salon, it’s a hidden gem of a place that specializes in the rare and exotic. Today, for instance, window-shoppers will find themselves pressing their noses up against a window that’s showcasing a brilliant Gallo Midas Lamborghini LP560-4 Gallardo.

Step inside and you’ll find more subdued but no less unique fare, AMGs and Range Rovers and the like. However, today’s selection is a last-of-breed special, the kind of machine that the Urban Garage knows all too well. It’s an Audi S4 Avant, one equipped with a six-speed manual transmission.

Not only does Audi no longer offer a stick shift paired with a V8 in anything other than an R8, they don’t really sell a hot wagon this side of the Atlantic any more. A shame, that, as Audi pretty much invented the whole speedy Euro estate segment with the original RS2 Avant, developed in partnership with Porsche.

This 2006 Audi S4 Avant manual transmission at Urban Garage packs a mighty 4.2L V8 under the hood, thanks to what you have to assume is the world’s largest shoehorn. It’s benefited from a slew of recent maintenance, and has the double-rarity of being both local to BC and accident-free.

Flying cars have long been a mainstay of science fiction, dating as far back as the first traffic jam. The joy of driving has always been about freedom, and what greater joy and freedom could there be than taking to the skies and soaring far above rush-hour gridlock? But where do we stand on achieving what must be one of the greatest dreams of humankind? We did some digging, and you’d be surprised how close we are and what’s already possible.

Answering the call of shoppers after higher performance and reduced fuel consumption, more and more automakers are shifting to boosted small-displacement engines to deliver a high-performance, high-efficiency punch.

Using a turbocharger or supercharger to ‘boost’ an engine’s power, thereby making a smaller engine perform like a larger one, is one of the oldest go-fast tricks in the book. It’s even more relevant nowadays, as fuel savings are realized by offsetting some of the engine’s output to a turbocharger or supercharger, rather than simply using a bigger, thirstier engine.

Using boost generates the on-demand power drivers want, with reduced fuel consumption when they’re driving gently. In a nutshell, using a smaller, boosted engine instead of a larger one means drivers will burn less fuel, more of the time, with no compromise in performance.

Here’s a closer look at the basics of superchargers, turbochargers, boost and forced induction.

Sharpened, but flawed....

The 2016 Acura ILX is a mid-cycle refresh of the brand’s entry level small sedan. Visually it’s a small upgrade, with a new grille, new LED headlights and taillights and a new trim with a body kit. Under the skin the Acura ILX is a whole new story with a brand new engine and a funky new gearbox that combines the smooth operation of a torque converter from a conventional automatic with the sporty feel of a dual-clutch automated manual.

Have you poured yourself a bowl of frosted sugar cocoa bombs? Are you curled up on the couch in your Spiderman pyjamas with a couple of GoBots close at hand? Well, get ready for a Saturday morning flashback, because it’s the best cartoon cars ever.

Awards season is in full swing, and if you’re a celebrity who isn’t even nominated, then the other way to grab some attention is to make a splashy entrance. Whether it’s at an awards ceremony or a movie premiere, you can become the target of a thousand flash bulbs with a noteworthy outfit, some bizarre antics or, perhaps best of all, a fancy vehicle.
