Cherry red Cadillac CT6 photographed in China
The fascia, proportions and side-profile of the 2014/15' CTS & CT6 are very attractive, the fascia of the CTS in particular but falls apart at the rear end. Like parts from two different cars. In agreement with Alfa_Tifoso whom posted the Ciel image - the rear end of a modern Cadillac should take your breath away or at least look like part of the same car. I support the brand in finding a new footing but I also suspect that it will not have many chances to redeem itself beyond the next generation if it doesn't bring some thunder soon.

Bentley working on a business case for the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept but isn't in a rush
Well, such plans must be carefully considered. Costs of R&D, manufacturing; facility/ assemblage, time tables, markets & marketing, establishing suitable sources of parts production (and alternate methods of reducing cost of parts)legalities, etc. etc. It's not a walk in the park. You simply cannot "greenlight" such a product without gathering, processing and presenting ALL pertinent logistical data. Hence the business case.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe officially unveiled [video]
This would deter me from purchasing an S Coupe. To think that I'd top out at 130K-140K USD on the special S Coupe 4 (after adding some desirable options) to then have this C Coupe pull up next to me at a red light is beyond me. Of course you purchase far more than an exquisite body shell but the resemblances begin to detract. The new C Coupe is decent looking overall however the "crying" tail lights further dampen the rear end. The sedan appears sexier.

Bentley Bentayga allegedly leaks out in official diecast model
Imagining it as a 1:1, it's decent looking vehicle, however it doesn't do the Bentley team any major favors in terms of creativity. I believe we were all expecting a far more evolutionary design after over a decade of the Continental GT aesthetic (subsequent Flying Spur/ Mulsanne).. under the surmise that it's too much of an dated to simply cut and past onto an entirely new vehicle segment but perhaps the strategy is to just introduce the model under current design language and then advance in the next with the rest of the lineup. Stronger that way. The so-called Bentayga will sell well enough.

Ferrari F12 Speciale photographed without any camouflage
...You mean the same way that the Ferrari GTO of 1962 and the 288 of 1984 copied the GT3 RS? http://static0.bornrichimages.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/feat4.jpg http://www.gaddidekho.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Ferrari-288-GTO-Nice-Look.jpg

Less than 20 Ford GTs to be sold in the UK annually
Costly for sure but quite the specimen....Once they manage to get that motor going of course. Yet the mishaps seem to add to the spectacle. One of the most incredible looking supercars no doubt.

London to criminalize supercar engine revving and loud music
I've always wondered for how long this free-for-all would last.. seemed like a pain for the residents/businesses. Despite how much I may love watching the London clips - I do agree with the motion to pass such laws.

Lamborghini already thinking about Urus SV
At least the LM was/ is a vehicle which can be driven hard and off-road. You could drive into war with that. The Urus and likened vehicles bare a menacing redundancy in my view and do not deserve to be labeled as "SUV". I consider the classification to suggest far more than aesthetics/ proportion/ ground clearance. It speaks to a vehicle that you'd easily and successfully take off-road on a whim. Saloons, wagons, supercars, pick-ups et al function their respective roles. Obviously the market for the vanity SUV has grown a great deal so it just is what it is. I'd be in proper support of a modern Lambo SUV if it at least had the adventurous appeal and utilitarian capabilities of the LM. Otherwise it should then look far better than the Urus does.

Lamborghini Asterion production not happening as Urus is now top priority
At least it's not off the table - while they may never produce the Asterion, this aesthetic/technology is a fantastic direction to pursue on near-future models. I'm a bit over the razor sharp panels and multiple points, exception granted for the smoothed Huracan. Urus, I'm definitely not a fan but it'll sell I assume.

2016 Mercedes SL spied wearing significantly less disguise
I personally find the the current SL 65 to be quite attractive despite the over-styled headlamps and over-extended rear deck of the R231. This facelift already appears to be quite unbalanced from front to rear. But one truly never knows with a MB in camo prior to reveal. Yet I don't believe that this facelift helps the range - it could've been a good idea to forego the facelift, preview the next generation with an interesting study (which they may do anyway) and then reveal the next generation when that time arrives.

BMW heading to Pebble Beach with two brand new concepts
So long as they move in a direction opposite the 3.0 CSL Hommage.. The steering wheel makes me a bit nervous but excited to see.

Mercedes-AMG GT gets tuned to 590 PS
Some excellent photos in this set. Well, you know - to anyone who can afford an AMG GT or an SClass Coupe - 2k is a mere penny.

Mercedes-AMG GT4 reportedly set for 2018 launch to rival the Porsche Panamera
There is nothing wrong with another four-door coupe, especially one based on the CLS platform as an AMG GT derivative. Both the CLS and GT4 can coexist. The description sounds astonishing. No need to get caught up on classification.

Ferrari F12 GTO screenshots from private configurator seem legit
If it's legit, it's pretty bad ass in terms of design in my view. It could use a bit of refinement around the exhaust and air damn, again in my view but there is surely a client for this. It meets more of my taste than not. In terms of HY-KERS + weight reduction per a comment below; stripping the interior of any "unnecessary" luxuries and supplementing lighter weight material in the interior and structure where applicable usually gets the job done. It's not an impossible feat and Ferrari is more than capable.

BMW 7-Series Individual revealed [video]
It is not wrong to like both the S and the 7. Each speak to their respective tastes within the segment. I appreciate BMW integrating some of the powerful design cues referenced on the Concept Luxury thus I find this 7 incredibly handsome and indeed evolutionary (which I did not anticipate upon the first crop of leaked images). Certain proportions / details of the fascia are somewhat in-congruent but overall, I like it a great deal.

Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 could go into production with revised styling
If green-lighted, this would be one the most incredible vehicles to become available in recent history even if production may be limited. The design is brilliant inside and out although I fully agree with Dürheimer when he states that there are certain details which can work better such as the grille and headlamp cluster. It can work certainly work better than it does now. The interior is excellent in so many ways. Bentley would be smart to move forward with such a vehicle before Bugatti does!

Mercedes-Benz fined $56 million in China for price fixing
Says a nation whom inflates currency and regularly manipulates/ ignores international fair-trade policies and allows scores of its natives to work in the most deplorable of conditions for pennies on the dollar (if they're luck)? Fining an automaker for price-fixing? Pot..kettle..you know the rest..

2017 Ford GT to cost around $400,000; annual production capped at 250 units
If you have ever heard/ know anything of the Ford GT90 Concept - this new GT (cost and all) makes a great deal of sense thus the new GT is more plausible than most might realize. For those whom do not know - the GT90 was/is a concept vehicle from the mid 90's which was actually on the road to a production version but the project was scrapped. It was slated to deliver over 700hp, 0-60mph in 3.1 with a top speed of 230-235mph. Purpose-built to compete with the Mclaren F1, XJ220, F40 and as a 30th Anniversary tribute to Le Mans. It also featured some highly advanced technology including the first use of an automatically deploying rear wing, keyless entry to the cabin via a touch-to-open surface (among other special sensors which are just now become normalized within the industry) and the very first successful use of arc-xenon headlamps, if I am not mistaken. I still have my 1:18 GT90 tucked away and recall the days when it was a favorite choice when playing NFS II. The Ford Indigo and the Ford Synergy are other examples of highly advanced, hardcore concept vehicles produced by Ford. That "American blue badge" has far more integrity, passion and innovation than most people choose to attribute proper credit. The average American lifestyle and that of Europe are obviously different and serve as no grounds to generalize the value of an entire brand. That's small-minded. Give them their props. While I find the tailpipe execution incongruent to the overall aesthetic, it still looks great and the performance figures are sure to prove more than worthy. I am very glad to witness their achievement.

2016 Cadillac CT6 partially revealed in Oscar ad [video]
And according to more recent developments, Cadillac has registered CT7 and CT8 if memory correctly serves. So this is not an S-Class rival but very likely to be a model slotted between the E and S.

2016 Cadillac CT6 partially revealed in Oscar ad [video]
Bare in mind: this is just the beginning of the new phase of Cadillac. The Cadillac team has stated repeatedly that we stay tuned for the exquisite design language explored in the Ciel/Elmiraj to translate to production models (roughly 2018/2020). The Elmiraj just debuted, have some patience and give them a chance to make their way forward. It will never work, or at least you'll never be satisfied unless you take a breath and give them support. It's no walk in the park.

Ferrari 488 GTB revealed with twin-turbo V8 engine
Just spectacular. Well done Ferrari. I could only imagine how beautiful it handles. Seems to have very high response to power ratio. I want this... and that interior is an orgasm waiting to happen.

2016 Jaguar F-Pace spied inside & out
I am on board with this vehicle. Very appealing, and the concept is fairly sexy. The interior, however... Hopefully when finished, it will be something more dynamic/ lux than what is in these photos. Jaguar interiors have much catching up to do.

Mercedes-Benz autonomous driving concept teased ahead of CES reveal
My thoughts exactly upon reading that bit. Mercedes has been teetering with concept of autonomous/ alternate/ assisted drive vehicles for quite some time with concept vehicles like the F200/ F700 / F125, the masterpiece that is the S-Class... "Which can virtually drive itself." and most recently the Future Truck concept.
