All-New 2017 Buick EV From $40,495 In The U.S.

The Chevrolet Bolt hasn’t exactly set the sales chart on fire but General Motor’s next electric vehicle could be a different story.

According to Inside EVs, the company could be developing a Buick crossover that is based on the Bolt.

Citing a “very trusted/known source” who reportedly attended a focus group in California, the publication says the model will largely be a badge-engineered crossover with unique exterior styling. That doesn’t sound too promising but the source noted the model resembled something like a next-generation Buick Encore.

The styling differences appeared to be enough that some people in the focus group couldn’t tell the two models were related. As the sourced noted, “Some completely trashed [the] Bolt EV and loved the Buick, so I guess the designers did a good job.”

Speaking of the design, the model reportedly has aggressive LED headlights and a floating roof. The overall dimensions largely carryover but the crossover is rumored to have additional rear seat legroom. Read the rest of this entry »

Audi has officially launched the 2017 RS5 Coupe in Europe, which now gets a new twin-turbo V6 that’s been co-developed with Porsche.

The second generation of the RS5 is, according to Audi, the gran turismo model in their RS lineup, combining high everyday usability with an elegant, yet powerful presence.

The bodywork features a much wider and flatter front grille from the base models, additional air intakes next to the headlights and Audi 90 Quattro IMSA GTO-inspired fenders that are wider by 15mm (0.6 inches). As standard, the new RS5 Coupe comes with 19-inch wheels, with 20-inch alloys available as optional extras.

Under the bonnet lies an all-new twin-turbo 2.9-litre V6 which develops 450PS (444hp) and 600Nm (442.5 lb-ft) of torque, which is 170Nm (125.4 lb-ft) more than the previous model and available from just 1,900rpm. Zero to 62mph (100 km/h) takes place in 3.9 seconds, with the top speed limited to 250km/h (155mph) as standard, and 280km/h (174mph) if you tick the RS dynamic package in the options list.

1986 Audi B2 Coupe

Built by Audi between 1980 and 1988, the B2 Coupe still stands as one of Ingolstadt’s most beloved classics, even as a front-wheel drive model.

1986 Audi B2 Coupe

1986 Audi B2 Coupe

According to seller, this 1986 model posted to eBay is in “good to excellent condition”, and comes with approximately 123,489 miles (198,736 km) on its original digital cluster.

The ad also states that its Kenwood stereo with JBL speakers is in working condition, and that in the last 5,000 miles, maintenance on the car included a rebuilt cylinder head, new timing belt, water pump, roller, tensioner and head gasket, plus a new fuel distribution and pressure regulator to go with the new Bosch ignition coil.

As far as we can tell, the interior looks to be in pretty good condition, except for the mirror switch, sunroof handle and both trunk shocks, as pointed out by the seller.

All in all, we’re hoping this car is going to land with somebody who appreciates it for what it is but also for what it once was. While you could easily find more modern daily drivers for $4,500 (the asking price), few of them would have as much charisma as a B2 Coupe.

All-New Cadillac CTS-V Carbon Black Edition From ¥ 14,900,000 In Japan

Cadillac has just detailed the limited-edition CTS-V Carbon Black Edition available exclusively in Japan.

Cadillac CTS-V Carbon Black Edition

Cadillac CTS-V Carbon Black Edition

Japan is no stranger to receiving bespoke models from Cadillac and already has distinctive ATS and CTS offerings. The CTS-V Carbon Black Edition is perhaps the most eye-catching of all and is even more menacing than a U.S.-spec model.

For starters, Cadillac has installed the model with a carbon black kit that includes a black front diffuser and rear spoiler as well as matching side vents, diffuser and front grille. A set of gunmetal wheels also make the vehicle stand out. Customers will only be able to select between Sable Black and Crystal White Tri-Coat paint finishes.

Inside, the brand has outfitted the 16-way adjustable Recaro seats with Jet Black leather and Alcantara. Black is also present on the steering wheel, dash and parts of the center console.

A mere four examples will be produced, each priced at 14,900,000 yen ($133,000).

1965 Lincoln Continental Limousine

Limousines converted from sedans are becoming a thing of the past as those fortunate enough have been gravitating towards pimped-out SUVs and vans. That’s a bit of a shame, because long and low limos like this one are about as cool as they come.

1965 Lincoln Continental Limousine

1965 Lincoln Continental Limousine

What you’re looking at is a 1965 Lincoln Continental – not unlike the one from the opening of Entourage, but stretched longer and with a fixed roof instead of a standard wheelbase and drop top.

The classic limo was converted by Lehmann-Peterson, which executed the job so well that Ford extended its factory warranty to every one the independent Chicago-based coachbuilder made. And man, were they sweet. So sweet that celebrities and statesmen alike bought them up as fast as Lehmann-Peterson could make them.

President Lyndon Johnson had one. So did Senator Robert Kennedy, Governor Nelson Rockefeller, and even Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko. They were even more popular in show business, counting among its owners Elvis Presley, Sophia Loren, Spencer Tracy, Hugh Hefner, The Rolling Stones, and The Supremes. This one was owned by the one star who was cooler than all of them: the legendary Steve McQueen.

Of course McQueen was better known for driving himself around in Ferraris and Porsches, or riding his motorcycles. But some occasions called for a chauffeur, and for those occasions he had this unsurpassedly cool limo. It was decked out with every luxury available at the time, including a window divider and mechanically opening bar with crystal stemware.

It’s been immaculately preserved since McQueen’s time, and is now heading for the auction block in Santa Monica next month, where RM Sotheby’s and Auctions America project it will sell for $100-150k. That’s a lot more than you could spend on a Continental (or any Lincoln) these days, but then nothing Lincoln makes now is anywhere near this cool.

All-New 2017 Lexus CT200h From $31,250 In The U.S.

The Lexus CT200h has reached the end of the road in the United States as Car & Driver is reporting the hatchback will be dropped after the 2017 model year.

2017 Lexus CT200h

2017 Lexus CT200h

The CT200h was introduced in America at the 2010 New York Auto Show and was primarily designed to appeal to European customers.

Despite being the Lexus’ most affordable model with a base price of $31,250, the car never really caught on with consumers as the company sold around 15,000 units annually in the United States. However, recent competition from models such as the Audi A3 and Mercedes CLA has caused sales to dwindle and the company only moved 8,903 CT’s last year.

The CT200h will reportedly continue to be sold in other markets but in the United States the brand’s entry-level model will become the NX crossover which starts at $35,285.

As a refresher, the CT200h has hybridized powertrain that consists of a 1.8-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine and a small electric motor that produce a combined maximum output of 134 hp (135 PS). This enables the car to return 43 mpg city, 40 mpg highway, and 42 mpg combined. Those numbers are nothing to sneeze at but the $23,475 Toyota Prius beats them with 54 mpg city, 50 mpg highway, and 52 mpg combined.

All-New 2017 Smart Fortwo Electric From $23,800 In The U.S.

2017 Smart Fortwo Electric

2017 Smart Fortwo Electric

Mercedes announced the pricing details of the all-new electric Smart Fortwo, which is expected to hit US dealerships this summer.

The new 2017 Smart Fortwo Electric Drive is not only one of the most affordable ways to enter the EV realm, but is also cheaper that the model it replaces by $1,200, with the starting price set at $23,800 for the Coupe, excluding federal, state incentives and a $750 destination and delivery fee.

Pricing for the Cabrio version starts at $28,000, which is also the world’s only electric convertible available on the market right now.

This new-gen electric Smart features a more powerful electric motor, producing 80hp and 118lb-ft (160 Nm) of torque, a higher top speed (81mph / 130 km/h), faster AC charging thanks to the higher-powered onboard charger, more interior space and more kit fitted as standard.

The standard 7kW onboard charger means that US customers will be able to fully charge their 2017 electric Smart in an estimated 2.5 hours, which is about twice as fast as you could charge its predecessor. Smart claims an estimated driving range of around 70 to 80 miles (128 km), which is enough for urban commuting, given the relatively short time required for a full charge.

All-New 2018 Audi A4 Black Edition From £32,530 In The UK

Audi is revising the A4 range for the MY2018 in the UK by adding more features as standard and reviving the successful Black Edition version.

Audi A4 Black Edition

Audi A4 Black Edition

In fact the Black Edition spec proved to be so successful that more than 50 percent of UK buyers ordered one when it was available last time for the previous A4 generation.

The new Audi A4 Black Edition is available in combination with the whole engine range, from entry-level 1.4-litre TFSI all the way up to the V6 TDI Quattro.

The specification includes a set of 19-inch five-arm alloys finished in matt titanium, with Audi offering 18-inch gloss black alloys as a no-cost option, a titanium black styling pack that extends to the mirror housings, the singleframe grille and window surrounds, side skirts, rear spoiler and air intakes, rear privacy glass, acoustic front side windows and black roof rails for the Avant version.

The interior of the new A4 Black Edition also gains a flat-bottomed steering wheel, piano black inlays and up to £550 worth of equipment for free. All 2018 A4 models also benefit from Audi’s Safety & Service which offer emergency calls, online roadside assistance and Audi service request functions.

Sport models get a seven-inch full-color display for the instrument binnacle instead of the original five-inch monochrome version, front heated seats dressed in what Audi calls Twin Leather upholstery while S-Line models get a leather-Alcantara interior.

Audi UK also announced the offering of cruise control and rear parking sensors as standard to all of its models, starting from the A1. The rest of the updates include a revised Technology Pack that now offers the Virtual Cockpit, wireless charging and MMI navigation plus. Read the rest of this entry »

Based on the popular Ford F-150, the Super Snake features a ram air hood, front fender vents, and a new bumper cover. The truck has also been outfitted with a four-piece ground effects package, honeycomb mesh grille inserts, and a painted tonneau.

Additionally designers installed extended fender flares, a Borla dual exhaust system, and 22-inch chrome wheels. Lastly, the company added the usual Shelby badging and stripes.

The interior receives a modest makeover which includes embroidered headrests and a Snake emblem on the center console. Rounding out the changes are special floor mats and an individually-numbered plaque on the dashboard.

Under the hood, the 5.0-liter V8 engine has been equipped with a supercharger, a high-performance air intake, a billet throttle body, and new fuel injectors. Thanks to these modifications, the engine’s output climbs from 385 hp (390 PS) to more than 750 hp (760 PS).

Shelby declined to say how fast the truck can accelerate from 0-60 mph, but the company confirmed the model will be offered with rear- or four-wheel drive.

Production will be limited to 150 units and pricing starts at $96,680.
