Here it is ladies and gentlemen and everyone in between, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: Cadillac’s first ever true attempt at taking a crack at such cars as the Lexus LS, the BMW 7-Series, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the Audi A6, and so-on.
The all-new Cadillac CT6.
It has an all-aluminum body and a new 3.0L twin-turbo V6 with an eight-speed automatic with a twin-turbo V8 as an option.
And over all, it’s just amazing.

We never really cared much for the current Chevrolet Malibu. But that has the potential to greatly change because Chevy just revealed new pictures of the Malibu recently.
And on paper, it’s already looking pretty good, both literally and figuratively.
Needless to say, we can’t wait to see it in person.
Stay tuned for the full monty with our real-time coverage of the 2015 New York International Auto Show.

Have you ever wanted a 503hp Sprinter van tuned up the wazoo by the boffins at Mercedes-AMG?
Well now’s your chance! Meet the Sprinter 63 S, complete with tons of space and room to haul everything and your mother with 503 horsepower.
Based on the Sprinter Kombi, the new Sprinter 63 S also features tons of exterior upgrades along with a quad-tip exhaust system, sport suspension and more.
Go power is supplied by AMG’s now ubiquitous 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 with 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
The full reveal is scheduled to occur on April Fool’s Day.
BMW and Alpina go together like Jager and Bombs, one compliments the other greatly when combined.
And Alpina recently decided to celebrate its relationship with Munich’s finest, BMW, which turned 50 this year.
To commemorate this anniversary, BMW and Alpina teamed up once again for some limited production Edition 50 models.
The two Edition 50 models start life off as a BMW 5-Series or 6-Series Coupe. They’re then given the full treatment from the Alpina factory to become the B5 Bi-Turbo and B6 Bi-Turbo. The result is a 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8 massaged to produce 591hp and 590 lb-ft of twist.
Lamborghini was once a small Italian luxury and supercar automaker that churned its cars out from a bunch of wooden shacks. But ever since they upped their game, especially with the help of Volkswagen AG, who acquired the brand in 1998, Lamborghini has since morphed into one seriously tip-top operation.
For instance, just look at Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata engine factory, where Road&Track got a sneak peak at what goes on behind those closed doors.
Head on over to Road&Track to check out the feature.
In an age when the United States is, at long last and after much pining, receiving some of Europe and Asia’s best performance vehicles – the brand new Focus RS springs immediately to mind – consistently being denied fun Hondas seems like an injustice that will never, ever be set right. As if not getting the bonkers Civic Type R wasn’t punishment enough, this week Japan (and Japan only) will see the launch of the S660, the company’s spiritual successor to the iconic Beat, as well of a long line of tiny roadsters dating all the way back to the S800 of the sixties.
What are we missing? Quite simply, the very injection of enthusiasm that Honda’s US range so desperately needs: a 660cc turbocharged three-cylinder mounted amidships, mated to the buyer’s choice of either a conventional six-speed manual or a seven-speed CVT, in a package that weighs well shy of 2,000 lbs. Output is exactly what you’d expect for a kei car at 63 hp, but rumor has it the company is planning a more powerful version, fitted with a 1-liter mill developing nearly 130 hp. If the S660 is eventually released outside of Japan, this is most likely the version we’d see.
AutoCar reports Bentley is going to reveal a new high-performance rear-wheel drive sports coupe next year.
The new sports car is said to be based off of the Continental GT, rather than the new EXP-10 Speed Six Concept from Geneva. That could only mean the Continental GT3-R is most likely going to be the starting point for the news model.
However, unlike the GT3-R, which is all-wheel drive, the new one will be rear-wheel drive only.
Go-power should be provided by a twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 with power rated at around 572hp while weighing in just 440lbs lighter than the GT3-R.
Production is expected to be very limited.
