Bugatti wowed crowds at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance when it unveiled the Centodieci. Based on the Chiron, it’s meant as a tribute to the EB110, the oft-overlooked yet unforgettably styled supercar that’s among the fastest of the Radwood era. With the Centodieci, Molsheim had to accomplish two things. First, make it a worthwhile

When you attend a Porsche gathering, you don’t hear the numbers “911” bandied about. You hear which series or era of 911 is residing in front of you, be it a 930, 964, 993, 996, Ducktail RS, GT3, Club Sport, or what have you. And at this year’s Werks Reunion during Monterey Car week, there

Acura’s NSX gets a bold new color option for 2020. The color, Indy Yellow Pearl, pays homage to Spa Yellow, also known as Indy Yellow in some markets, one of two yellows offered on the first-generation NSX. Yellow was a surprisingly popular choice for first-generation NSX buyers: About 20 percent of all NSXs built between

When the Honda Civic Type R first came to the U.S. two years ago, it carried a price tag of $34,775. That price was pretty impressive, considering the athletic hatch packed lots of standard features and a 306-hp engine that made it the most powerful production Honda ever sold in the states.

It’s also the only coupe currently available with a three-position rear seat, allowing it to accommodate five passengers. Need the most potent Challenger?

A couple weeks ago, Ferrari introduced its latest mid-engine supercar, the F8 Tributo. It’s an evolution of the 488 GTB that we named the 2017 Best Driver’s Car, with restyled bodywork, more power, and even better handling. But now that we’ve seen the one-off P80/C, the F8 Tributo feels like old news. Built for one (presumably quite

Lamborghini has introduced the sexy new Aventador SVJ roadster at the 2019 Geneva motor show. The SVJ of course stands for “SuperVeloce Jota,” a moniker bestowed upon Lambo’s superfast track models of distinction, like the Aventador SVJ coupe that currently holds the Nürburgring production-car lap record of 6:44.97. (It’s since been topped by one kinda,

Staff photographer Robin Trajano and I have agreed to swap long-term cars. From here on out, Robin will drive the BMW X3 M40i and I will oversee the BMW X2.  Robin wanted more size, power and aggressive noise, and I wanted a smaller footprint, quieter exhaust and better fuel economy.

Elon Musk has bottled some lightning, and so far nobody’s successfully reverse-engineered his formula—the precise “it factor”—that earned Tesla 80 percent of the (admittedly still tiny) market for fully electric passenger vehicles in the U.S. in 2018. Legacy and startup manufacturers alike are trying their gol-dangdest, though, and upstart Sino-Scandinavian brand Polestar appears to be

Where, pray tell, is the biggest-selling affordable EV of them all, the Nissan Leaf? When its second-generation version was introduced two years ago in Japan, the Bolt’s then-staggering 238 number had already been announced. Needless to say, that cast a pall over the Tokyo proceedings as Nissan struggled to justify the new Leaf’s 150-mile range.
