  1. Italdesign Giugiaro turned 50 last week and celebrated with the announcement of a new supercar debuting at next month's 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. The supercar is the open-top version of last year's Zerouno, the first car to be sold under Italdesign's own eponymous brand. As was the case with the Zerouno coupe, the Zerouno roadster from...
  2. Hyundai on Thursday released full details and photos on its redesigned Santa Fe ahead of the sales launch this summer. The SUV, whose formal debut will take place on March 6 at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show, will arrive as a 2019 model. It represents the fourth generation of the Santa Fe nameplate and this time around Hyundai is calling...
  3. Ford late on Wednesday announced that Raj Nair, executive vice president and president of the automaker's North American operations, has been dismissed for “inappropriate behavior,” effective immediately. The decision was made following an internal investigation and later review of Nair's behaviour thought to have been prompted by an...
  4. The true Yenko of last century has been long gone, but Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) has kept the name and image alive. Aside from its various modern-day interpretations of Yenko Camaros, the company on Monday revealed another take on the Yenko name with the 2018 Yenko Silverado. Complete with a 6.8-liter LT1-based V-8 engine, and a...
  5. There are two relatively simple options to boost (pun intended) horsepower in a vehicle: superchargers and turbochargers. But, which is better? Once again, Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained is here with an answer. It's important to understand how both options function first. A turbocharger relies on a vehicle's exhaust to spool up a turbine to...
  6. Hennessey Performance Engineering revealed the 1,000-horsepower Exorcist Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 last April, and since then the car's become an assailing answer to Dodge's Challenger Demon, even if it's not an OEM package. We know 959 of its 1,000 horsepower actually makes its way to the rear wheels, but we still never learned just how fast it will...
  7. Owners of the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 have banded together to serve General Motors a new class-action lawsuit over the sports car's alleged cooling system defects. In fact, it's the fourth lawsuit over the matter. Overheating issues surrounding the current-generation Corvette Z06 have plagued the car for years. A portion of owners has long...
  8. Rolls-Royce is almost ready to unveil its first-ever SUV—ahem, high-sided vehicle—and the automaker is clearly excited. After last week confirming the Cullinan name, Rolls-Royce on Wednesday revealed a pair of automatic tailgate seats that would be perfect for watching the kid's soccer game; or for the few owners who may actually take...
  9. Jeep crows about its Wrangler being the standard for off-road driving. As my colleague Andrew Ganz found in Arizona, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler is a dynamite car in the dirt. While the 2018 Wrangler, a JL to all the fans, certainly will be a fixture on trails and in mud bogs, it's also the vehicle that will get plenty of folks to school and work...
  10. Volvo's history is closely linked with wagons that could withstand severe punishment. Now, its future is linked with small-displacement powertrains and selling cars like Netflix. The new Volvo V60 appears to have one tire in the past and three more in the future. The 2019 Volvo V60 was unveiled Wednesday in Stockholm, the second 60-series vehicle...
  11. A new generation of the Porsche 911 is just around the corner, but the current 991 generation still has life left in it. The German automaker overnight revealed an updated version of the car's GT3 RS track weapon, which we'll see next month in Geneva. Also on show in Geneva will be the Ferrari 488 Pista, the hardcore version of the 488 GTB...
  12. Morgan will use next month's 2018 Geneva International Motor Show to introduce the Plus 8 50th Anniversary Edition. As the name suggests, the car, of which just 50 units will be built, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Plus 8 line. Morgan tells us that well over 6,000 of the V-8-powered sports cars have rolled off the line at the company's...
  13. Mercedes-Benz's future self-driving cars will rely on a cloud-based high-definition map updated in real time to see the world around them. The machine-readable map, known as the HD Live Map, will come from mapping company HERE, a former unit of Nokia sold to Audi, BMW and Mercedes in 2015 for $3.1 billion. Intel also has a stake in HERE, which it...
  14. Waymo has become the first company, at least in the United States, to receive regulatory approval for the commercialization of a self-driving taxi service where no human driver is required. The approval was given to Waymo in late January by the Arizona Department of Transportation, Ryan Harding, a spokesperson for the agency, confirmed to...
  15. It was previewed in concept form only last March, but prototypes for Mercedes-AMG’s standalone sedan are already at a late stage of development.
