1985 Mercedes Benz 190E 2.3-16V

It looks a little silly at first glance, a compact mid-Eighties Mercedes sedan with fender flares and wings bolted to it. The Cosworth- modified Mercedes 190E 2.3-16v set the template for an entire generation of The Fast and The Furious -inspired cars.

This hot rod sedan may seem a bit out of character for Mercedes, especially in its wildly aggressive final form, but it’s got a very important place in the flow of automotive history: many people agree that this is the car that officially kicked off the German horsepower wars. It’s definitely responsible for the BMW M3, because BMW put that car on the road as a direct response to the 190E 2.3-16v.

As with many car stories, it all begins with racing. Mercedes started out looking for a sensible replacement for the 450SLC that was its entry in international rally racing. Teaming up with Cosworth was a sensible way to go about it, and the W201-chassis 190E underwent a comprehensive makeover in 1984. And then the Audi Quattro happened. The all-wheel drive car took the rally world by storm, so Mercedes changed its focus to the German Touring Car Championship. The 190E was modified and did a successful turn in the series, racking up 42 victories over its life span. As regulations required, the car was also homologated for road use, resulting in the 190E 2.3-16v Cosworth.

And with that, a long-standing competition was born. As BMW developed the M3, the 190E 2.3-16v became more extreme as well. In its final form in 1990 as the 190E 2.5-16v Evo II, it looked and sounded like a DTM car for the street. Though the 190E 2.3-16v was only officially sold in the United States in 1986 and 1987, the hot-rodded 190E models helped to spawn a generation of legendary super-sedans.

Ford GT Heritage Edition For Sale At Cats Exotics

The Ford GT may have had a short lifespan – it lasted only two years – but there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that the supercar left an indelible mark in the American auto industry. No more is that evident than in the limited edition Ford GT Heritage Edition. Limited to just 343 units, the GT Heritage Edition separated itself from other Ford GTs because of its Gulf livery, the same body finish the Ford GT40 had when it won at the 24 Hours of Le Mans back in 1969. These days, the GT Heritage Edition has become increasingly collectible, having sold in auctions in excess of $300,000 in the past. The “sought-after” status attached to the GT Heritage Edition will again be on full display as another example of this prized collectible is currently being sold at Catsexotics at a price of $374,888.

This particular GT Heritage Edition has 7,617 miles on its odometer and carries the VIN number 1FAFP90S36Y400856. It also has all the available options from the factory, including the lightweight aluminum BBS wheels, McIntosh stereo system, and most importantly, the Heritage Gulf paint livery. According to the seller, the car has been involved in an accident in the past, but the damage sustained was limited to the passenger side wheels so the body of the car has never been touched. The wheels were eventually replaced through an insurance claim.

Other than that, everything about the GT Heritage Edition justifies the six-figure price tag attached to it. The body of the supercar also features HID headlights and Eagle F1 Supercar tires that have less than 2,000 miles on them. Likewise, the interior has leather-trimmed carbon fiber seats and standard air conditioning. It also retains the same 5.4-liter, supercharged V-8 engine that produces 550 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque.

Those interested in buying a Ford GT Heritage Edition now have a chance to do so. The only question is whether they’re willing to pony up that much money for a car that’s seen its share of adventures.

2015 Fiat 500 Ribelle

Fiat understands that the 500’s expanded presence in the US is slowly giving it a bigger audience to showcase its styling wares. The new personalized features on the 500 Ribelle drive home that point with a blend of new exterior colors, cosmetic updates, and interior refinements.

2015 Fiat 500L Urbana Trekking

The introduction of the Fiat 500L at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show marked the first time the Italian compact hatchback came in a different configuration. At 166.5 inches long, the 500L is almost 30 inches longer than the Fiat 500, making it the perfect five-passenger model to expand the company’s portfolio out of its compact comfort zone. While the 500L is still lagging behind the 500 in terms of sales numbers an airbag recall in July 2014 hurt the former’s momentum the crossover is slowly gaining traction with just under 1,000 units getting sold in October 2014. That number marks a 48-percent increase over the 623 units sold in September 2014.

The 500L Urbana Trekking is based on the 500L Trekking and has been dressed with a plethora of unique exterior and interior features to highlight the amount of personalization the crossover can have. The model gets six glossy exterior paint options, new wheels, and an upgraded interior with generous applications of leather.

Expect to see the Fiat 500L Urbana Trekking in Fiat studios beginning in the first quarter of 2015.

Suzuki Air Traiser

Minivans are not often thought of as being particularly cool. The result has been a decline in sales as the many image-conscious parents out there flock to crossovers instead. As a result, minivan concept vehicles are often completely bonkers, as carmakers clearly hope that going so far in the other direction will inspire buyers to reconsider the segment. It never really seems to work but it s hugely entertaining to watch, and the new Air Triser concept from Suzuki exemplifies everything that makes wacky minivan concepts so great.

The concept is being unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show, as a part of the “Suzuki Next 100” theme for the carmaker s booth. Since Suzuki s 100th anniversary is coming up in 2020, it is using this opportunity to show off a bit of what is said to make up the lineup for the outset of the next 100 years. The concepts are therefore wild and futuristic, although they are simultaneously retro in their design. This is seen especially in the front fascia of the Air Triser. But unlike the Mighty Deck concept, which is clearly just an updated version of the Mighty Boy kei car, the Air Triser isn t made to look like anything specific from Suzuki s past.

2015 Suzuki Mighty Deck Concept

The Tokyo Motor Show is one of the more entertaining in the automotive world. The show concentrates primarily on the Japanese domestic market, so although the cars shown there might not be especially relevant to the rest of the world, they are a great way to see something different from the kinds of concepts that we ll be seeing, say, at the Detroit Auto Show. We also get to see some cars from manufacturers that sell cars in North America, of which Suzuki is now one. The carmaker will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2020, and it brought a handful of concepts to the Tokyo show what is planned for the next 100 years.

2016 Audi RS 7 Sportback Performance

American performance is usually served with unmistakable flamboyance. For example, both the shark-nosed Corvette Z06 and Terminator-esque Shelby GT350 Mustang offer unambiguous speed cues front to back. But that’s a good thing; it’s an essential facet of their character. However, some people prefer the straight-to-jail speed in a package that flies comfortably under the radar. Folks looking for a combination like that usually turn to Europe, birthplace of cars like the Audi RS7 Sportback Performance. To the uninitiated, it’s just another AWD luxury sedan. But to those who know, it’s over 600 horsepower and a top speed of 190 mph.

Audi already offers U.S. customers the venerable RS 7, but now, according to a recent report from the fine folks at Autoblog. we’ll get the new Performance version as well. That means even more power, slightly tweaked styling, and all the refinement and comfort you’d expect from a range-topper with four rings on the grille.

So then – a high-output variant of an already overpowered luxury sedan. Sounds tempting. We won’t know exactly what the U.S.-spec RS 7 Sportback Performance will bring to the table until Audi provides us with the details, but for now, read on for the Euro-spec iteration and cross your fingers it’s unaltered by the time it hits our shores.

Updated 11/27/2015: Audi dropped a new video in which it highlights its latest RS7 Sportback Performance. Hit play to watch the new RS7 in action on some very cool winding roads.

2016 Cadillac CT6

Even so, the odd positioning strategy makes the CT6 similar in size to any European luxury car, as its length and wheelbase are on par with those of a BMW 7 Series short-wheelbase. On the other hand, thanks to an aluminum-intensive platform, the model weighs about as much as the smaller CTS, which is lighter than a 5 Series. Whether Cadillac s strategy will work in the long run remains to be seen, but the CT6 seems to tick a lot of right boxes.

Updated 11/02/2015: Cadillac announced that the all new 2016 CT6 will be put into production in Detroit in January, 2016 with initial shipments to dealers set to begin March. Prices will range from $53,495 for the base CT6 and will go up to $83,465 for the CT6 Platinum.

2016 McLaren 570S Coupe

Although it the smallest and least powerful, road-going McLaren yet, the 570S Coupe promises to be as exciting as any sports car coming from Woking. The coupe shares its DNA with both the 650S and P1, while also using a range of race-bred technologies that already debuted in previous models. In short, the 570S Coupe isn t a lesser McLaren, but the company s attempt to make its products available to a wider clientele and at a more affordable price. It s part of McLaren s recently announced plans to expand globally, and, by the looks of things, this new strategy is off to a great starts thanks to the 570S Coupe. Read more about it below.
