Naturally aspirated V12, 715hp, four seats - an SUV is not what you would think of when hearing these things. Ferrari has revealed the Purosangue; it's first SUV, and we love it.
Oscar Piastri is officially a McLaren F1 driver. After all the contract drama with Alpine heading into the summer break, a four-person Contract Recognition Board unanimously ruled in McLaren and Oscar Piastri's favor. Soon after, McLaren confirmed Piastri on a multi-year deal.
We love it when automakers decide to unveil a new car, especially when they aren’t doing it at the auto show currently taking place. We may be knee-deep in New York materials, but Mercedes-Benz went and pulled the trigger on the new 2010 S-Class; more specifically, the S600 and S400 Hybrid.
Sometimes, a slight refresh can be a big step forward for an automaker. Take this new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, for example. Parent company Chrysler really needs to prove that it can make attractive, fuel-friendly, good-quality vehicles, otherwise the automaker will indeed have a tough time staying afloat over the next year. And from the looks of the new Grand, we don’t think it’s going to disappoint.
Not only did Nissan bring the new 370Z Roadster to this year’s New York Auto Show, they decided to turn up the heat and unveil a much-anticipated Nismo version of the hot new sports coupe. Nismo, Nissan’s in-house tuning division, did a pretty successful job with the last-generation 350Z, so we can only expect good things from the new Z, what with its upgraded powertrain and utterly primal driving dynamics.
General Motors sure does enjoy badge engineering. We just saw the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox for the first time this past January along with Cadillac’s new SRX, but instead of making a replacement for the outgoing Pontiac Torrent, the General decided to add another vehicle into GMC’s product line — the 2010 Terrain.
File both of these in the “utterly pointless yet totally awesome” category. BMW will be officially unveiling the new X5 M and X6 M at the New York Auto Show next week, but the official details and photos have just now leaked out onto the web. Both of these newcomers mark BMW’s first application of all-wheel drive on an M vehicle, and while we don’t exactly see them selling in droves, we’re confident that they’ll both be an absolute hoot to motor around in.
Since its launch at the beginning of this month, Apple’s iPad has been the talk of news writers, forums posters, and the larger online world in general. While we at Winding Road haven’t been immune to the base lure of what is, perhaps, the most exciting product on the planet, we’ve also been hard at work developing our own application for it.
That’s right, folks—it’s a modern-day Mini Crossover.
