A solid little wagon, the V60 Cross Country does make plenty of sense with a bit of extra ride height for our rough roads and parts of the country that get deep snow. Plus, those Volvo seats!

This was something: the new Mercedes-AMG GT S on the track... and then the hail and rain came and things got loose...

+Mark Stevenson gets some stellar shots of the Ford GT, and sharp questions for Dave Pericak.
 
Did you get enough Ford GT last week? Because we think you can never get enough! Here are some of +Mark Stevenson's shots of the GT from Detroit, and an interview with Dave Pericak, Director of Ford Performance:  http://www.autos.ca/auto-shows/preview-ford-performance/

Had the chance of a lifetime to visit the GTI Treffen at Worthersee in Austria, an endless parade of tuned and vintage VWs, plus some new stuff from Volkswagen and Audi, a truly epic event for a VW fan. these are some of my favourite photos, but there are even more in a slideshow at http://www.autotrader.ca/newsfeatures/20150527/in-pictures-gti-treffen-at-worthersee-austria/#iRCCGZu6DxMtMMLd.97

A neat little piece about how the dirty bits go together to make AWD cars work.
 
As all-wheel drive (AWD) becomes more affordable, more common and more effective than ever, more Canadians are shopping for new rides that send power to all four wheels for maximum grip, confidence and peace of mind when the going gets slippery. Here’s a closer look at what makes an AWD system tick, and some of the high-tech advancements that let today’s AWD systems work with immense precision.

Most expensive car on autoTRADER.ca. Sweetness.
 
Find of the Week: 2014 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster

Even where a supercar is concerned, there are still degrees of excellence. For instance, the original Lamborghini Aventador, heir to the mantle of the Miura, Countach, and Diablo, didn’t quite come out of the box with as many horses under its creased hood as the badge would indicate. The numerical designation said LP-700, but you had to round up a little: there were actually 691 Italian Stallions leashed together in that fire-breathing 6.5L V12.

Close enough, right? But maybe you’re a stickler for the best-of-the-best. Here, then, is a particularly special version of a special version, a car that Patrick Kam of Lamborghini Vancouver calls “The most heavily optioned Aventador we’ve ever ordered.” Thanks to some extra oomph from Sant’Agata, this machine is making north of 740 hp. That’s more like it.

More about this beauty:

I'm a convert. Fresh meat, tasty cheese and bacon, limitless options and creativity. Yes it's pricey, but for those who say they can find a better burger for less money, I tend to think they simply don't know how to judge a good burger. However, I would like to see what they can do with onion rings since that is not yet on the menu.
