    2014 Lincoln MKZ

    An all-American upstart looking to, metaphorically at least, shove the likes of Cadillac and the Germans off their luxury highways, the 2014 Lincoln MKZ fares more than well against its foes. The fluid-like coupe design is a real head-turner, embracing and embellishing all that is great about the company (especially that split-wing grille), it also purrs with ambition. There are three powertrains to choose from. The 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder offers 240-hp and a torque of 270lb-ft, while you can expect …cotinue reading


     
  • Sea-Doo Spark

    Sea-Doo Spark

    Clean, easy-to-use fun, the marvellous Sea-Doo Spark sports a 900cc ACE power plant originally designed for snow mobiles. The lightweight engine is available with 60 or 90-hp and is the most fuel-efficient out there, offering optimum performance and outstanding torque. Reach speeds of 50 mph, using less than two and a half gallons of juice per hour.    


     
  • Nissan Sport Sedan Concept

    Nissan Sport Sedan Concept

    There’s a rumor that the luscious Nissan Sport Sedan Concept offers a glimpse of what to expect from the next Maxima, and it’s pretty exciting. Beneath the hood sits the firm’s classic 3.5-liter V6, good for 300-hp, which spins some very attractive 21-inch alloy wheels and the curvaceous body is topped by a heavenly floating roof design.   


     
  • Volvo Concept XC Coupe

    Volvo Concept XC Coupe

    Boasting the familiar 2-door shooting brake like body, the Volvo Concept XC Coupe is rumored to offer a glimpse of what to expect inside and out with the upcoming production XC90. It’s certainly a head-turner, and don’t just take our word for it for it won awards for its innovative use of color, graphics and materials, as well as Best Concept Vehicle at the Detroit Auto Show.


     
  • Volkswagen Dune Concept

    Volkswagen Dune Concept

    As if these cars weren’t already fun enough, there’s now an extra two inches of ground clearance, with 19-inch five-spoke wheels. Under the hood of the Volkswagen Dune Concept you’ll find a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder 210-hp engine, mated to a six-speed dual clutch. Inside is just as fabulous, with the usual quirks, plus the likes of a 7.7-inch AMOLED display.


     
  • Infiniti Eau Rouge

    Infiniti Eau Rouge

    Taking its cues from the Q50, a firm favorite of ours, the Infiniti Eau Rouge is a tantalizingly exciting prospect. It’s also a real tease as there are still no specs available. Though, we have it on good authority to expect over 500-hp and 600 lb-ft of torque, thanks, in part to a V-cylinder engine of quite epic proportions.


     
  • Mercedes S-Class Coupe

    Mercedes S-Class Coupe

    A stone cold classic in the making. But then again, most of them are, aren’t they? The ridiculously sexy Mercedes S-Class Coupe features such gems as Intelligent Drive safety and assistance technologies, calfskin upholstery and dual 12.3-inch TFT high-res displays. The 4.6-liter biturbo V8 high-pressure direct injected engine should nicely leave your stomach behind in sometime last week, too.  


     
  • 2014 Porsche 911 Targa

    2014 Porsche 911 Targa

    It may boast 21st century technology, but the 2014 Porsche 911 Targa still retains its 1960s cool. The entry level is good for 350-hp and a 4.6 second sprint, while the Targa 4S bags a 400-hp 3.8-liter engine that will fire you to over 180mph, the first 60 in just over four seconds. All are all-wheel drive and all rock the iconic Targa roof bar.


     
  • 2015 Chrysler 200

    2015 Chrysler 200

    Looks and performance have been improved all round with the 2015 Chrysler 200, now available with a 2.4-liter Tigershark I-4 or Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine good for 184- and 295-hp respectively and mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. Fuel efficiency stats are yet to be released, but we reckon to expect mid 20s in town and 35-plus stretching its legs on the freeway. Selective driving modes are up for grabs and safety features include forward collision and lane departure warnings.


     
  • 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

    2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

    Utterly stunning, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is the company’s fourth-gen supercar, with a 6.2-liter V8 supercharged engine that will deliver 625-hp. At least. Opt for a 7-speed manual or an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission, with upshifts even faster than those of the 911. Chevy’s active fuel management system will keep your gas mileage somewhat reasonable, but, we guess if you’re driving around in one of these things, you’re not really going to be too concerned about that.
