Fisker EMotion Electric Luxury Sedan Makes Global Debut At CES 2018

What is electric powered, has 400 miles range, a top speed of 161 mph, all-wheel drive and has unique opening doors? Tesla? Nope. Not a Tesla this time. Neither is it yet another China-based EV maker. It is none other than the Fisker EMotion Electric Luxury Sedan from the revived Fisker Automotive (now called Fisker, Inc.) founded by Henry Fisker. This stunning EV with sweeping lines made its global debut on January 9 at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. Continue reading Fisker EMotion Electric Luxury Sedan Makes Global Debut At CES 2018

Audi’s New A7 Sportback Has Mild Hybrid System Across The Engine Range

We decided that we are not the mouthpiece of Audi and so, we shall dispense with all the marketing mambo jambo that comes with the newly revealed Audi A7 Sportback. Sportback is essentially fastback and you know what it means when it is a fastback? It is tickles our fancy. Many American muscles that we love are build on the foundation of a fastback. But the Audi here is, of course, not American. That does not make it any less deserving of our love. It features what Audi refer to as a four-door coupe form, which I believe was first adopted by Mercedes-Benz years ago.

BMW i Vision Dynamics Is The Electric Mobility Of “Immediate Future”

Described as an “electric mobility of the much more immediate future,” the BMW i Vision Dynamics bears a shell that indeed looks like a probable car of today, or at least, in very near future. Unveiled at this year’s IAA Cars 2017 show in Frankfurt, the BMW i Vision Dynamics is a four-door Gran Coupe powered by an undisclosed electric drive that offers a range of 373 miles (600 km), promised a top speed of 120 miles an hour (200 km/h) and takes mere four seconds to cover the century sprint. These are numbers that are not out-of-this-world, which means, they are likely to be realized. Even the aesthetic, while ‘futuristic’ in a way, looks pretty down-to-earth.

BMW Unveiled New 4.4L V8 Bi-Turbo M5 with 600 HP of Adrenalin Rush

Good news M fans who can’t get enough of M power. The newest M power, the new BMW M5, has just gone official and it looks, well, so very 2017 BMW. That being said, there’s really nothing to pick on the aesthetic; it is just the design language you have come to expect of a Beemer of 2017/18. What’s important to true M fans would be what goes under that muscular, sculpted aluminum hood which happens to be a very, very angry 4.4L V8 bi-turbo motor with, you guessed it, M TwinPower Turbo technology that kicks out 600 horses and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque.

2017 Honda Civic Type R: Track-ready, U.S.A-ready, But Are You Ready?

While I agree the new Honda Civic is sporty-looking by nature, I am not all for the looks. I don’t know. It looks to me like there are just way too many things going on the exterior that makes it looks so… messy, but my perception could change if it has a 2L i-VTEC DI Turbo motor with 306 horsepower and a hefty 295 lb-ft (400 Nm!) of torque like the new 2017 Honda Civic Type R has to offer, which, btw, is happens to be the most powerful, quickest, fastest and most agile Civic ever. Now, you see why the leeway I had for the look that I wasn’t that impressed with? Continue reading 2017 Honda Civic Type R: Track-ready, U.S.A-ready, But Are You Ready?

New Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo: 550 Horses And Seats Five

What’s the use of a fine car when not many can ride with you, eh? However, if you think the Porsche Panamera is a fine car, the good news is, you can now take along one more passenger on an exhilarating, unadulterated ride – thanks to the inclusion of an additional seat found on the newly announced 2017 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, which will be making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show (March 7-19, 2017). The Sport Turismo is the first Panamera to get three seats at the rear: two on the outside in the form of bucket-style individual seats and a not very convincing, but still a seat, center seat. I guess, it is better than nothing. At least, you know you can afford up to three kids and still be able to enjoy the performance offered by a Porsche.

It is not uncommon for automakers to team up with celebrities, fashion labels, and pop culture icons to roll out special edition rides, but not so much with food, let alone a hot sauce.
