2019 Chevy Silverado

Forget the spy shots, teasers, and speculation. This is the 2019 Chevy Silverado, which got a surprise debut at an event celebrating the brand’s 100-year anniversary of trucks, in brand-new Trail Boss trim. While we’ll have to wait for the Detroit Auto Show next month for all the details, we can at least get a …

Lamborghini

It’s healthy to be skeptical of ambitious supercar startups. Far too many of them fail before ever delivering a single working vehicle. Creating a new car, even one based on a current production vehicle, is a difficult, complex and expensive task. This is the Ares Design “Project Panther,” a concept for a coachbuilt supercar based …

McLaren Senna

It’s hard to imagine many cars calling out the McLaren P1 for being less than batshit crazy, but the car formerly known as the McLaren P15, and now named Senna, after the legendary triple F1 champ who died in 1994, does exactly that. “We couldn’t push the P1 as far as some might have wanted …

The Corvette ZR1

So, we don’t quite know where this came from. This video was apparently uploaded to Chevrolet’s YouTube channel on November 15, 2017, but left unlisted—meaning it doesn’t appear in searches on YouTube, nor is it promoted as “related content.” The video seems to show a 2019 Corvette ZR1—you know, the 755-horse, 715 lb-ft monster ‘Vette …

Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz is teasing the release of its third-generation Sprinter commercial van with new photos of the van’s interior, which features a large Mercedes Pro touchscreen on the center console. The company says the all-new Sprinter joins the Internet of Things for the first time with the central, intelligent infotainment system and new telematics designed to …

The Jaguar XE SV

Jaguar revealed today, ahead of the Los Angeles International Auto Show, that its ultra-hardcore XE SV Project 8 sedan has shattered the Nurburgring lap record for sedans. With a time of 7:21, it trumps the previous record holder—the Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio—by 11 seconds. In case you need reminding, the XE SV Project 8 is the …

2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia

It’s become de rigueur to declare driving dead. If we are headed for autonomous transport, ask the pundits, why bother having fun behind the wheel? Just clamber into your soulless people hauler, select “Stultifying Ambient Tedium” on your Pandora playlist, and tune out. At Motor Trend, dear reader, we are not ready to give up …

The Honda Accord's New Turbo

I ruffled a lot of feathers when I called the ninth-generation Accord V6 the last real American muscle car. Many of those feathers were attached to a bunch of cuckoo birds whose favorite small-block ’70s midsizers wouldn’t have a prayer in heaven or hell of catching an Accord V6 down a quarter-mile. My opinion that …

New Aston Martin Vantage

The Aston Martin Vantage is the storied British marque’s volume car. And with the unveiling today of an all-new model, that volume just got turned up. “The new car starts where V12 Vantage, not V8, left off,” says Miles Nurnberger, Aston’s head of exterior design, as he walks us around the production car in an …

2019 SCG 004S

James Glickenhaus has come a long way since 2005, when he first told Andrea Pininfarina about his wish to create a modern homage to his Ferrari P3/4. Based on an Enzo, the P 4/5 was ready 18 months later, only to become Pininfarina’s most well-known modern creation. It wasn’t long before SCG built another Ferrari-based …
