A wagon that really hauls ass!

It's hard for me to think of a station wagon as anything more than a people mover. I mostly blame that on the 70s era wagon my aunt had for that fact. The new and thoroughly badass Audi RS 6 Avant is a wagon of a completely different type. This beast of the car packs a twin turbo V8 engine.

That engine produces 560 hp between 5700 RPM and 6700 RPM. It also produces over 516 pound-foot of torque between 1750 RPM and 5500 RPMs. The car has a top speed of up to 189 mph when properly equipped.

The incredibly powerful V-8 is able to push the car to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds. The Audi also has a full-time all-wheel drive system and plenty of room for people and stuff. This is a seriously high-performance car capable of being driven each day with no fuss. Pricing and availability for the car are unknown at this time.

Sep 16 2014 2:28pm CDT | Source: Ultimate Motorcycling

Harley-Davidson Sportster History Perhaps no motorcycle in Harley-Davidson’s product lineup has ever been so successful and versatile as the Sportster. I own two Sportsters, and it’s difficult to name bikes I enjoy much more, even though I’ve owned 22 other motorcycles that span the range from liquid cooled V-twins to V-fours, air-cooled parallel twins to in-line fours, and shaft drive, belt drive, chain drive, SOHC, DOHC, push-rod – you name it, I owned it.

For Audi, having two shapely TTs is apparently not enough. In addition to the 2016 TT coupe (which we just drove and found quite impressive) and the forthcoming roadster variant expected to debut at next month’s Paris auto show, a third TT is under development. And it’s likely to be a crossover. What the what? According to a report in Automotive News, Ulrich Hackenberg, Audi’s board member in charge o ...

California issues first official permits for self-driving cars in U.S.

Sep 16 2014 1:12pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Computer-driven cars have been testing their skills on California roads for more than four years — but until now, the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles wasn’t sure just how many were rolling around. That changed Tuesday, when the agency issued testing permits that allowed three companies to dispatch 29 vehicles onto freeways and into neighbourhoods — with a human “safety driver” behind the wheel in case the onboard co ...
