  • 2015 BMW M4 Convertible

    A guy can dream (of Summer) can’t he? The 2015 BMW M4 epitomizes everything that’s right with the warm weather seasons. The three-liter, 425-horsepower, twin-turbocharged straight six engine is nice and all, but who really cares about all that when your drop-top folds up in under 20 seconds. Available with either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, depending on if your swerving around pot-holes on the north east coast or cruising down the PCH on the west coast will surely affect your decision. 2015 BMW M4 Convertible

    David Hasselhoff has either hit hard times, perhaps spending his fortune on one too many cheeseburgers, or has taken up an ascetic lifestyle in a search for inner peace.

  • That Time We Took The New Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid Offroading In Key West [60 HQ Photos]

    Last month we took the new Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid on an epic Florida Keys adventure. In the story RSVLTS Goes On A Florida Keys Excursion With The New Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid [HQ Photos] we gave you a detailed account on our trip and the blueprint for a great Key West trip with your bros or a significant other. RSVLTS was the first group to push the XV Crosstrek Hybrid’s all-terrain capabilities to the limits in order to see parts of the Keys no one else could. With dozens of Keys within a short drive on Key West you can easily go on an offroading adventure which is what we did for an entire day with the brand new  XV Crosstrek Hybrid. Putting it’s capabilities to the test, like ground clearance of 8.7 inches, which is higher than some dedicated SUVs like the Jeep Grand Cherokee, we were able to see things that people driving other Hybrids like a Prius, and SUVs for that matter, simply could not. The all-terrain capabilities of the XV Crosstrek Hybrid were quite remarkable. We were climbing hills and going over bumps that were really intimidating but the all-wheel drive hybrid handled it all without batting an more »

  • Oakley Built Bubba Watson A Bulletproof Ford Raptor

    Meet Bubba Watson’s badass bulletproof 2013 Ford Raptor. Promoting the Oakley brand (thanks to the massive logo stamped on the front grille) while also providing Bubba with a nearly indestructible vehicle to protect his family, Oakley once again hit a homerun with this marketing endeavor. The Raptor has been decked out in a digital camouflage paint job paired with stealthy black wheels, and an interior that’s draped in Bubba’s favorite color – lime green. The truck has been equipped with bulletproof glass and kevlar inserts, and took the sunglasses maker nearly 6 months to complete.

  • Chrysler Orders Original Dodge Vipers To Be Destroyed [2 Videos]

    93 first-generation Vipers have been ordered to be destroyed by Chrysler. The preproduction cars were donated to schools to be used for auto shop classes, but somehow two of the not street-legal cars, lacking emission controls or speed-limiters, made it onto public roads and were involved in accidents. Since Chrysler still owns the cars, they were held liable for the accidents. Now Chrysler’s lawyers are demanding the other cars, worth upwards of $250,000, destroyed all because of the actions of a couple of morons. Good work, guys! That’s why you can’t have nice things.

  • The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly From The Geneva Motor Show [32 HQ Photos]

    Each year in March, the International Geneva Motor Show is held at the Geneva Palexpo convention center. Since the first show in 1905, Geneva has been the show for automobile manufacturers to unveil their most ambitious concepts. Although exotic supercars usually get the most attention, the latest technological breakthroughs are also met with great fanfare. More so than other shows, automobile manufacturers worldwide consider the Geneva Motor Show a level playing field because the hosting nation, Switzerland, has no auto industry of its own. We’ve shared some of our favorites form the show below, whether it’s because we want to drive them or because they look so insanely ridiculous. The Volkswagen Giugiaro Clipper Concept is our current favorite. Which one do you want to take for a spin?

  • iOS On Your Dashboard With Apple CarPlay

    This morning at the Geneva International Motor Show, Apple announced its rebranded its iOS in the Car as CarPlay. Along with the new name, Apple revealed that the first cars to feature CarPlay will debut at the show from Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, and Volvo. So what exactly will CarPlay allow you to do? With the help of Apple’s voice-activated Siri, drivers will be able to keep their eyes on the road while making calls, sending messages, selecting music, and getting navigation help. Don’t worry if you’re not an iTunes user. Apple will allow connectivity to third-party music apps like Spotify and iHeartRadio for your cruising soundtrack. The system will also be predictive, using information from your texts, emails, and searches to figure out where you plan on going without telling it anything. In addition to the aforementioned automakers, Nissan, Peugeot, Jaguar Land Rover, BMW, and General Motors will all feature CarPlay in future vehicles. Even Ford, who has been using Microsoft’s Sync voice-command system for years, is said to be a future partner. Soon the CarPlay steering wheel button may be as ubiquitous as seat warmers in autos. Wait, you don’t have seat warmers? Yikes.

  • First Porsche Car Goes On Display [6 Photos]

    Ferdinand Porsche’s historic brand released its first car, the Porsche 356, in 1948, but the first car he designed was the Egger-Lohner electric vehicle C.2 Phaeton model, or the P1, in 1898. The historic car was recently uncovered in an Austrian garage where it has sat untouched since 1902.

  • Ken Block’s New Winter Ride is Better Than Your Winter Ride

The truck also comes with a Whipple supercharger, a full roll cage in case the beast takes a wrong turn in the snow, a snowboard rack in the trucks bed, a roof-mounted basket, and a rear-mounted winch. The RaptorTrax will make it’s debut at the Winter X Games in Aspen this year.

  • Range Rover Quiets Critiques by Crossing the Worlds Largest Desert in Record Time

    Over the past decade Range Rover has transformed from a top-of-the-line off road beast capable of taking on the elements, terrain and anything else the world throws at it. Through recently, housewives of Beverly Hills and over privileged teenagers use it as a symbol of wealth and luxury, a stigma Land Rover had seemed to accept, catering to the luxurious with it’s newest sleek, “aerodynamic” look, claiming better gas milage at high speeds because of the new shape. Because people who can afford an $80,000 SUV worry about highway gas milage. Some enthusiasts thought the drastic change was a travesty to the boxy beginnings that was once a Range Rover signature, some rolled with the punches claiming progress. Either way Land Rover is now attempting to rebuke the ‘house wife’ stigma with their newest campaign. ‘Driven Challenges’, an ad campaign pushing their newest edition Rover to the ultimate tests in climate, terrain and performance. The campaign began this year at Pike’s Peak International Hill Climb, where the RR set a record for a production vehicle. Now they’re setting their sights on The Empty Quarter. The largest sand desert in the world. The Quarter is so big, it shares borders with more »

  • The Best Commercial You’ll Ever See For A Used Car [Video]

    Orlando area filmmaker Luke Aker of Ikonik Films needed to sell his 1996 Nissan Maxima so he used his talents to make this amazing commercial. How could anyone resist a car fully loaded with such luxurious features as “an engine, wheels, tires, and an automatic transmission?” The best part is that the car really is for sale on Craigslist for $900. And even if nobody buys the car, Luke is bound to get some work out of the stunt.

  • Radical’s Street Legal Race Car, The RXC

    The Radical RXC is Radical’s first fully enclosed car made to be street legal for European roads. Using the Ford Duratec 3.7 liter V6 engine found in the Mustang and F150 tuned to 380 hp, this “road car” will get you around town at breakneck speeds. That horsepower may not sound too impressive but when you consider that the car weighs less than 2000 pounds, it’s plenty. The RXC goes 0-60 in 2.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 175 mph. There are also plans for a V8 version if you’re still unimpressed. But for now, if you want to take home the V6 RXC, it’s going to cost you about $150,000. But hey, what are you waiting for?

  • Dubai’s 700 Horsepower Mercedes-Benz G63 Police Cars [7 Photos]

    The Dubai police have teamed up with the custome Mercedes pros at Brabus for their B63-S 700 Widestar. A souped-up version of the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, the B63 ups the horsepower from 536 to 700, allowing the SUV to go from 0-60 in 4.9 seconds and achieving a top speed of 149 mph. Why does Dubai need such a badass vehicle for their police force? There must be some sort of incredible and dangerous adventures planned for it, right? Wrong!

  • McLaren’s 12C Spider Convertible Revealed [12 Photos]

    With the 12C Spider, McLaren took the already amazing MP4-12C coupe and made the top retractable. Having the top down will cost you a bit in performance, though, as the top speed drops from 204 mph with the roof to 196 mph sans top. Mechanically, the convertible is the same as the hardtop, with a 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 that allows you to go 0 to 60 in 3.1 seconds, but expect to pay about $26,000 more for the Spider than it’s topped counterpart’s $230,000 price tag.  Also, you should probably have a special budget just for hats, since you may lose a few when speeding around at 196mph. 

  • Watch The New Mind Boggling Honda Ad Loaded With Optical Illusions

  • The $4.5M Lamborghini Veneno Roadster

    Can you put a pricetag on a work of art with curves and geometric contours as sexy as the the Lambo Veneno Roadter? Apparently you can. $4.5 million to be exact. This past March, the Veneno was released with a $3.9 M tag on it, now it looks as though they’ve removed the roof and added $600,000 to the cost of labor. It’s not all about the pretty face on the Veneno, it also makes a 0-62 MPH at 2.9 seconds with a 6.5-liter V12 engine roaring behind you, in between you and the trail of gold coins the Roadster leaves behind it. Although it’s rocking the same engine and seven-speed ISR gearbox that powers the Aventador, but beefed up to 750 horsepower, which makes sense considering the Aventador is $440,000. Wait, what? So if my math serves me correctly, you can buy 150 Mercedes C class sedans priced at their advertised $30,000 for the money you’d pay for a Veneno. Wait, what?

  • A Look Inside The Lamborghini Museum Courtesy Of Google [16 Photos]

    Google Street View now allows you to take a virtual tour of Lamborghini’s museum in Italy all from the comfort of your ergonomic workstation. Google gives you access to two floors and 1500 square-meters filled with some of the world’s greatest supercars. “Walking” around the museum is fun and all, but with Grand Theft Auto V fresh in our minds, I’d like to have the ability to take one of the cars for a virtual test drive and then virtually run down pedestrians on a narrow Italian street. Bravissimo!

  • Ford’s Self-Parking Car (Video)

    So after driving around and around the parking lot, you’ve finally found a spot just big enough for your car to squeeze into. As soon as you take the key out of the ignition, you realize your terrible error. There is no way your fat ass is going to fit in the few inches of space between you and the next car. Or maybe you suck at parking so much, that you continually pass up spots for fear that you’ll hit neighboring vehicles. Well chin up, buckaroo, because Ford has just the technology for you. Ford’s Fully Assisted Parking Aid will allow the driver to exit the vehicle and with the press of the button, watch the car park itself. No longer will you need to carry a tub of Crisco in your glove compartment to grease your way between cars!

  • It’s Back…The 2014 SRT Viper

    Every 90s kid wanted one of the original Dodge Vipers. There was even a terrible NBC show, called “Viper” naturally, that featured the car and ran for four seasons because kids liked looking at it so much. But when Chrysler hit financial trouble, the six-figure supercar ceased production. New Chrysler owner Fiat, obviously confident in the economy, has brought it back under the SRT label. Now a new generation of kids can spend their lunch money on Viper posters and folders at the book fair!
