2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS lineup facelift officially revealed with Multibeam LED headlights
Looks great but I have to agree with the criticism over the ridiculous screen. While there's a need for a screen in general, it should look more integrated on a CLS. And those black side areas on it... what were they thinking?!!! I hate to say that because I really like the CLS but the multiemedia screen on a VW Touran looks much more in place.

Williams reveals 'anteater' nose for 2014 FW36
Oh dear! This looks... inappropriate. I'd rather have a nose that makes the car slower but more dignified!

McLaren insider says P1 lapped the ‘Ring in about 6m 30sec - report
I just like this McLaren a lot! So to be honest, numbers mean very little in this case. Sure they play that game too and participate in the silly competition but it doesn't really matter. Even if it turns out that the P1 is the slowest of the three, I would still have it... well, as long as I could afford it.

Nissan IDx concept headed into production, could be introduced in a couple of years - report
I really doubt they can keep this front on the production model due to pedestrian safety restrictions. And also it looks not only like an old Datsun but reminds me of an old Opel (like Richard Hammond's Oliver in Top Gear) too. All in all don't expect styling to remain as it is with the concept.

Ferrari LMP1 prototype spied testing in Europe
I too suspect F1 engine testing, here's why: 1) it looks like the same car testing at Fiorano few months ago which certainly had a turbo engine; 2) it clearly has KERS (or whatever they call it in F1 for 2014)as it has the high voltage sticker on the side; 3) it doesn't seem impossible to bolt an F1 engine (or any kind of engine) on the LaFerrari's carbon tub chassis. What do you guys say?

McLaren Special Operations reveals MSO 12C Concept with various tweaks
You could hardly have the sort of Lambo styling with the only everyday super car on market because you would look errrm... not too smart. What I rather like about this car is its class - humble yet so elegant. I would not feel silly being seen in the 12C on daily basis because it's the sensible choice.

Short clip with the Devel Sixteen in motion, sounds fierce
What a massive joke. Every aspect of the concept model is wrong - materials, interior design, seat position, dash functionality etc... Just can't take it seriously!

McLaren P1 officially enters production - images released
Very inspirational! As an employer they seem to be taking the factory labor to a new level which also underlines the care and attention they put into the cars. Impressive stuff and a nice marketing approach as well!

Mercedes shows off their autonomous S500 Intelligent Drive prototype [video]
This is unbelievably complicated and beautiful. I can only say at this stage that I'm amazed. Time will tell whether it's good to have such a system on board or not.

2014 Lexus GX unveiled [video]
I'm afraid it's a NO! It's just a horrible looking thing! It has the same face as the Predator from the movie and could easily scare children to death! And the interior isn't any good either with those prehistoric flat buttons around the sat nav and cheap plastic surfaces. The cheapest VW polo seems nicer to touch and look at than this! I'm sorry for all those words but I've been completely disgusted by this monster of a car!

BMW i8 previewed through scale model
Spot on! And if this is what the production version is going to look like, then it lost the futuristic appeal of the concept and now looks like an Acura. Nevertheless the specs are quite impressive!

Jaguar XJ Supersport Nurburgring taxi crashes on the Nordschleife [videos]
Impressively strong car! Worth the price I guess.

Honda-powered McLaren to rival Porsche 911 ?
Chances are very low. McLaren have already invested far too much money in their engine which turned out to be not just very powerful but quite efficient as well.

Oh and if they change few more things they could possibly bring Lewis back... hopefully.

McLaren confirms Honda's 2015 F1 return
Great news, I am all for it! BUT I wonder if they're announcing this partnership early in order to attract sponsorship or anything? Or may be it's the right time...

Rosberg just as good as Hamilton - Berger
It's very trendy these days to compare Hamilton to Alonso and say that these are the best two drivers. But now if you put Berger's claim into the equation it would look like that:Hamilton = Alonso, Rosberg = Hamilton.Therefore Rosberg = Alonso, right? Errm I don't think so. And statistics don't play in Nico's favor either.

Possible Volkswagen Taigun production version shown in patent sketches
Looks similar to the Dacia Duster and that's bad.

Marko wants tyre improvements 'as soon as possible'
All this tyre rubbish makes me lose interest in F1. Just bring back the refueling and let them start with as much fuel as they want! The best of racing shouldn't be all about who drives slowly enough to keep the damn tyres in shape. This is stupid! I hate to say this but Indy is far more fun at the moment.

2014 Toyota 4Runner revealed [videos]
This must be one of the ugliest cars ever made! And it probably is a great off-roader but even a tough masculine car has to have some appeal and it doesn't.

The best comment about this on top gear was: "lawn mower"! :D

McLaren X-1 photographed at Bahrain GP
I had a childhood and I think it's epic in its own way. And on the other hand it makes me like the original 12C and the P1 even more as they're so modest and restrained. It turns out that it's quite difficult not to make a car look stupid and ridiculous.

McLaren plotting entry-level model below MP4-12C - report
All sounds good but I wonder how they can tune one engine for so many different cars? Technically they sure know what they're doing but part of exclusivity is the knowledge that all is built for the purpose and that it's not modular.

McLaren could revert to 2012 car
Unlike 2003 though now the key factor is the new tyres

GWA 300 SLC based on 2012 SLS Roadster with 1955 300 SC body revealed
I'd rather have a Morgan Aero which is more authentic and even more exqusite. And here the lack of detail tells you it is no masterpiece. Every time the owner talks to people about the car he'd look silly.

Hamilton's Merc move about money, management - insider
I'd be happy if he succeeds but bear in mind McLaren has a 25% hit ratio for all races they have ever participated in. Besides this year's Mercedes in nowhere as promising as the McLaren. So you can already consider the first year of his contract a mistake in terms of racing. So it's all down to the following 2 years and a belief that the 2014 Merc engine can give them a big advantage. But Red Bull kept on winning for three years with an inferior Renault engine... I just can't see Hamilton becoming more successful than he was at McLaren.
