2018 Aston Martin Rapide AMR spy shots and video

It's hard to believe it's been almost a decade since the Aston Martin Rapide went on sale, as even to this day the sexy fastback sedan remains one of the best looking four-door cars on the market.

Rust will compromise your car’s safety in a crash

Rust is never a good thing on a car. Though many simply see rust as a cosmetic issue or an eyesore, the problems go much deeper. Swedish insurance company Folksam and the homeowner organization Villaägarnas Riksförbund published a video showing how much rust compromises a car's crashworthiness.

2019 Audi A1 spy shots and video

Engineers from Audi are out testing prototypes for a new generation of the A1 subcompact hatchback. The current A1 debuted in 2010 and sadly was never offered in the United States.

Jaguar thinks its XE SV super sedan can break its own record at the ‘Ring

Jaguar last year came out with a version of its XE with 592 horsepower and starting price of $188,495. Sure that's steep for a small sport sedan, even one with 592 horses under the hood, but the car, designated an XE SV Project 8, is the fastest four-door production car around the Nürburgring—by a significant margin. Jaguar clocked a 7:21.23 lap...
