    2016 Acura NSX

    Finally, after years of tantalising hints, whispers and outright teases, the 2016 Acura NSX has revved into life, 25 years after the debut of its predecessor. Was it worth the wait? You bet your ass it was. Beneath that stunning, gleaming, undulating body rests a V6 twin-turbocharged engine that’s paired to three electric motors and a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission. And this time, it’s all-wheel drive.

    2016 Ford F-150 Raptor

    A supercar dressed in pick-up clothing, the sumptuous four-wheel drive Ford F-150 Raptor might as well be armor-plated. Tough and buff, it sports fortified long travel suspension, Fox Racing Shox and 35-inch tires. Tank-like over awkward terrain, cool and smooth over the tarmac, you can choose from two- or four-door cabs with a roaring V8 411-hp engine under the hood.

    Whatever comes after the future is exactly where the Mercedes-Benz F105 Autonomous Concept car looks like it originates. Sporting a super-sports-car-like shape, inside there’s a lounge-vibe which allows occupants to all sit facing each other.

    2015 Mazda3 Grand Touring

    A small five passenger sedan with a sports car soul, the 2015 Mazda3 Grand Touring is a deceptively speedy drive. In fact, it’s such a hoot, you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s a rear-wheeler. Both six-speed manual and automatic transmissions are available, mated to a spunky 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 185 lb-for of torque and 184-hp – more than ample to shift its 3,000 pound mass, thanks also to Mazda’s Skyactiv technology which incorporates an explosive fuel-injection system. A drastic …cotinue reading

    Tesla Roadster 3.0

    The iconic funky “green” ride is getting an upgrade. The Telsa Roadster 3.0 promises to increase its driving range by a whopping 400 miles – which is nearly half again on its current figures – thanks in part to all-new wheels and a 70kWh battery pack, as well as upgrading its aerodynamic shape.

    2015 Lexus RC-F

    Familiarity, so the saying goes, breeds contempt, but it can also breed bias too. We’re naturally drawn to the likes of Audi, Mercedes-Benz and BMW through their well-established and well-deserved reputations, but, the 2015 Lexus RC-F merits a mention in the same breath as its esteemed European peers. It’s unquestionably the sexiest Lexus we’ve ever seen. It brags a performance to match its snarling good looks thanks to a thunderous 5-liter V8 engine cooled by a stupendously oversized matte black …cotinue reading

    2015 Hyundai Sonata Limited

    Where do the years go? The 2015 Hyundai Sonata Limited is the seventh-generation South Korean sedan and they sure have refined their craft along the way. The competition within this class may be ever-expanding, but this no-nonsense ride, though not the sexiest option out there, more than holds its own.   So let’s start with the trunk. Yup, that’s right, the trunk. The Sonata’s Smart Trunk feature enables you to access the rear of your car without lifting a finger. …cotinue reading
