Aww Crap, Wiesmann Is Dead

Well, it sounds like it's for real this time. The wonderfully bonkers little German carmaker Wiesmann has kicked the bucket, it appears, and for good. They filed for bankruptcy recently, but couldn't attract any backers, so debt got the best of them. No more BMW M-powered, tastefully retro-styled sports car for us. » 5/07/14 2:25pm 5/07/14 2:25pm

Peugeot's Dakar Buggy Has Been Leaked. It's Awesome.

Ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes on this : the Peugeot 2008 DKR. It's the car the French manufacturer will be using next year to try and reclaim the Dakar title, a feat they haven't attempted since their four back-to-back wins between 1987 and 1990. Some blokes called Desprès, Sainz and Peterhansel shall be… » 4/14/14 5:53pm 4/14/14 5:53pm

Is The French Luxury Car Finally Back ?

That thing you see above is the new Peugeot Exalt concept, to be properly unveiled at the Beijing auto show. You might be thinking that it's just another design study from the French manufacturer, not destined to reach production in any way, like the SR1 of 2010. You might be thinking it's very pretty, yes, but rather… » 4/09/14 8:40am 4/09/14 8:40am

There's A New Peugeot Coupé Coming To Beijing

The four-door coupé niche, despite its idiotic appellation, is a growing one, and it's attracting more and more manufacturers. VW has had the CC for a long time, Mercedes has the CLA, BMW has the 4-series Gran Coupé (it's totally different from a 3-series, you guys !) and even Škoda's been thinking about it. » 4/08/14 11:01am 4/08/14 11:01am

The Italian Rozzers Have A New Car, But It's Not A Lambo

It's a Peugeot ! A 508 RXH to be precise, which is the 4WD diesel-hybrid version of Peugeot's 3 series-sized sedan, complete which jacked-up estate bodywork à la Audi Allroad. It makes 200 horsepower from its diesel-electric powertrain, good for a 132mph top speed and a sub-9 seconds 0 to 60 time. » 4/05/14 12:04pm 4/05/14 12:04pm

Forget The RWD Layout : This Is The Twingo's Best Idea

Yes, the new Renault Twingo is rear-engined and rear-wheel-drive, and that's fantastic news. But let's not allow this novelty to distract us from what is, in my mind, the third-generation Twingo's best innovation : its central touchscreen, or rather lack thereof. » 3/04/14 9:33pm 3/04/14 9:33pm

SEAT Steals Nürburgring FWD Lap Record From Renault

The SEAT Leon Cupra has apparently beaten the previous lap record for a front-wheel-drive car around the green hell by around ten seconds. The 276bhp hot hatch set a time of 7m58.4s, so it's also the first FWD car to break the eight-minute barrier. And it's faster than the SRT Viper, the Aston DBS and the Cadillac… » 3/02/14 2:16pm 3/02/14 2:16pm

Dear Smart & Renault, Please Bring Back The Roadster and the Wind

As you may know, Renault will unveil at the Geneva motor show next week the third generation of their Twingo city car. While the Twingo has always been an interesting car, the new one will be even more so : it's based on the same rear-engined, rear-wheel-drive platform at the new Smart ForTwo and ForFour. » 3/02/14 10:59am 3/02/14 10:59am

Touring Paints Disco Volante Green, Ruins My Pants

As you know, Milanese coachbuilder Touring Superleggera will only make eight 8C Competizione-based Alfa Romeo Disco Volantes. We've seen a red one (ordered by a wealthy Singaporean enthusiast) at the motor shows and on Top Gear, but now Touring has revealed a green and gold one, and it's gorgeous. I'll just let the… » 3/01/14 1:23pm 3/01/14 1:23pm

That One Time Renault Painted Méganes Like F1 Cars

Remember these ? Back in 2012, Renault made four special Renault Sport Méganes with paint jobs inspired by the liveries of the F1 teams then powered by Renault : Williams, Lotus, Caterham and Red Bull. Yes, that means there is somewhere in this world a John Player Special Mégane RS. It doesn't get much better than… » 2/28/14 5:16pm 2/28/14 5:16pm
