Everyone here already knows I'm a smart-a**. I love cars, I have a bachelors in electrical engineering and I'm paying for that education as a certified technician. I work on all Eurotrash, but Mercedes is my specialty.

2017 Audi A8 expected to get e-turbo, OLED screens and gesture control
Except when W202 was a miniature W140, W203 was a baby W220 and now while W205 is a miniature W222, right? They all do "same sausage different lengths", get over it. It sells cars.

Lamborghini Huracan and Audi R8 could get 5-cylinder turbo engine
It didnt burn or anything as dramatic, but it did have consistent issues dumping the extracted heat from the intake charge.

Cadillac ATS-V+ could have 7.0-liter V8 engine
The supercharged 6.2 is actually a larger package because of the supercharger mounted to the top. The 7.0L uses the same block, just bored and stroked for more displacement.

2017 Volkswagen Touareg digitally imagined
Theres no way the Toureg is losing anywhere near 700lbs. The Q7 lost that much weight because it was still riding on the mammoth PL71 platform from the original Toureg/Cayenne. For some reason it never migrated to the newer, 500lb lighter PL52 platform of the second gen Toureg/Cayenne siblings. Any...

Former Top Gear trio reunited in London to film for Clarkson, Hammond & May Live tour

Volkswagen unveils their new 6.0-liter W12 TSI engine
@C55, my comment wasnt about M275 durability but was instead about Mercedes' low-tech, 22 psi of boost approach to making power. The rest of your post makes my second point and usually alters the linearity of power delivery greatly. @benzomatiq, the whole 3-valve, no vvt, multi-spark approach was c...

Volkswagen unveils their new 6.0-liter W12 TSI engine
Mercedes' V12 is a SOHC dinosaur, boosted to within an inch of its life. Any engine makes big power when you just crank up the boost. This is fresh technology.

2016 Cadillac CTS-V to be priced from $83,995
The tech and engineering in this car is just as good, if not better/more clever, than the German competition. Anyone still spouting that "GM makes trash" nonsense is just a brand snob. Good product is good product. I grew up in the back seats of bad Cadillacs, Buicks and Pontiacs (thats one reaso...
