2013 Range Rover (2)

If ever there was a car that I am pretty sure everyone in the world would want, (regardless if you’re a soccer mom or F1 driver), it would have to be the new Range Rover Autobiography. Sleek and sexy and oh so luxurious – can I place my order, please?

From the elegant interior design to the high-tech, self-parking (yes, really) features, this car really seems like anybody’s dream car. (more…)

As you may of heard, North America’s mid-west is basically Antartica right now. Temperatures are way below zero and the snow just keeps on coming.

Some places have reported more than 12 inches (that’s 30 centimeters!) of snowfall. This basically means you can’t moving anything that is engulfed in the snow. But one man, and obvious car fan, did the impossible; he took his Audi S4 Quatrro out for a day in the snow. And obviously its a challenge with the Quatrro being low on the ground.  (more…)

Woah, Lexus. This is quite the stunner.

Ahead of it’s official debut in Detroit in a couple of days, Lexus has enticed us with some of the details (and some cool photos) of the al l new, all impressive, 2015 Lexus RC F. And we’re well impressed.

The RC F will have way over 450 horsepower and promises to be a stunner on the road.

Check out some of the pics below as well as the introductory video: (more…)

The tagline read: “Thrilling Contradictions”, which meant these ten filmmakers had to come up with a film that revolves around breathtaking contradictions. (more…)
