Auto Express drives the ALPINA XD3 — Better than the X3 M40d?

America has been getting little wins lately, when it comes to special cars being offered here. However, Europe is still the king of cool diesels, unfortunately for us ‘Mericans.

Rolls Royce Cullinan Rendered as a Pickup Truck

When the Rolls Royce Cullinan first debuted, it was designed to be a luxury car that could go anywhere. That was even the point behind its “Effortless, Everywhere” tagline; that it could provide effortless luxury without ever being limited to where it could go.

Our BMW 1M gets some detailing love from Dr. Beasley’s

BMW Z4 and Toyota Supra could be the end of the relationship

By now, it’s no secret that both the BMW Z4 M40i and Toyota Supra are mechanical twins. Under their skin, they’re almost exactly the same, with only a bit of minor tuning separating them. When the joint venture was first rumored, there was a lot of wonder as to how it would play out. In […]

Car and Driver reviewed the BMW 745e xDrive — Who’s it For?

When BMW announced that the BMW 745e xDrive would replace the 740e as the plug-in hybrid in the 7 Series lineup, we were actually quite excited. Or at least as excited as one can be about a two-and-a-half-ton hybrid luxury sedan. The cause for our excitement was the news of its engine change. Rather than […]

My First-Ever Monterey Car Week — Sensory Overload

A couple of weeks ago, I got a call from Horatiu. “Hey man, you want to go to Pebble?” he asked. To which I responded “Uhh, yea”. Or at least I think that’s how it went. I can’t remember the exact conversation because as soon as I head the word “Pebble”, my brain stopped recording […]
