Over the last couple decades, BMW has made some curious design choices to say the least. With the debut of the BMW Concept Touring Coupe,…
If you like shooting brakes as much as we do, let’s collectively work together for Ford to make this a reality!
Follow along as Tedward takes us on a tour of this beautiful and rare Aston!
Let’s be entirely truthful, the concept car moniker attached to the Mercedes-Benz Shooting Break doesn’t mean much. What we are looking at is the next generation of the ground-breaking CLS four-door coupe (albeit in wagon form).
Today we’re fortunate enough to be behind the wheel of another one of Maranello’s finest, the FF. The first all-wheel-drive vehicle in the company’s history, the FF replaces the 612 Scaglietti in Ferrari’s lineup. The shooting brake design of the FF is said to recall the shape of the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Drogo race car and also draws some inspiration from stable mates like the 458 Italia and the 599 GTB Fiorano. The FF is powered by a 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 making 651 horsepower and 504 pound-feet of torque, which is connected to a seven speed dual clutch transmission similar to the unit found on the F12 Berlinetta. Ferrari’s own patented 4RM all-wheel-drive system then routes the power to each of the four wheels as needed, leaving the car most often in a traditional rear drive layout.
Perhaps as a consolation prize to those mourning the loss of the wagon variant in the WRX, Subaru brought several hatch-equipped concepts to Tokyo this year, including this rather striking, shooting brake-styled Cross Sport Design Concept.
Callaway Cars published renderings of a shooting brake concept based on the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray earlier this year. Now, Callaway has updated its website to include an update to the car’s page, complete with a link to an order form [PDF].
At the Paris Auto Show in 2012, Porsche showed off the Sport Turismo Concept which was more or less a Panamera with a more wagon-like…
The terms “station wagon” and “performance” rarely go hand-in-hand. In its heyday, the station wagon was a big, bulky alternative to a traditional sedan that was designed to carry a family and a trunk-full of gear. The idea of a performance-wagon seemed downright ludicrous: buyers needed either performance or cargo capacity, but not both at the same time.
Don’t call it a grocery-getter.
Ferrari has given us a preview of its latest production model on this fine winter morning. Called the FF (four seats and four-wheel drive), it represents a significant departure from Ferrari’s past GT cars.
As someone who has studied sports psychology, brain function, learning strategies, and more for many years, I have known the power and effectiveness of using visualization for a long time.
Ford has announced that they will be introducing an all-electric vehicle to the world on November 17th. According to the press release, it’s a Mustang-inspired SUV that will bust the myth that electric vehicles have to be boring.
In Part 1, I challenged you to make a list of things you did well last season, and things you need to improve. The overall message I wanted to stress was that if you do the same things you’ve always done to prepare, you’ll get pretty much the same results again this coming season.
The Mazda has been the undisputed king of the roadsters since it burst on to the scene 23 years ago. The Mini’s been one of our favorite hot hatches, but we’ve been plenty curious to see just how the all-new Roadster matched up with the legendary MX-5. To find out, we spent a day shooting, videoing, and most importantly, driving these two awesome roadsters. This’ll be a fun one.
Ahead of its debut in Frankfurt on Tuesday, Fisker, maker of the Karma range-extended electric vehicle, has announced that it will be revealing the Fisker Surf.
When Ford announced earlier this year it was resurrecting the Taurus SHO, eyebrows were raised across the motoring spectrum and especially within the Taurus SHO enthusiast community, who’ve long regarded themselves as Ford’s red-headed step-children. Spying the tiny turbos and listening to Ford engineers babble on about torque delivery and fuel economy at lengthy pre-launch events did little to quell concerns, leading more than a few folks to write the car off without so much as a test drive. Everyone knew that the new car was going to be much bigger—and heavier—than the original, but had Ford learned the lessons of the Marauder? Would Ford actually have the guts to build a sedan that once again equaled the Mustang GT in performance? Would this new vehicle Ford was calling its premium flagship “with attitude” be more than a few badges and some noise?
