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.

Baffling, Camo’d Mercedes-Benz Pod Thing Spied—And We Know Exactly What It Is

Oct 16 2014 10:24am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We’ll cut right to the chase: This heavily camouflaged one-box vehicle will bow at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next January, and it will appear on the Mercedes-Benz stand. Styled by the staff of Benz chief designer Gorden Wagener, this pod-style car is intended to provide a glimpse at mobility decades in the future.

Acura TLX's early sales results look promising

Oct 14 2014 5:13pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Car Buying, Sedan, Acura, Earnings/Financials, Luxury Acura made a bold move earlier this year when it decided to axe two fairly popular models in the TL and TSX and replaced them with a single sedan: the TLX. After all, how often have you seen modern automakers consolidating vehicles in the lineup? But early indications have shown that the gamble might have paid off, at least so far, because the TLX has been outselling its predecessors for its first months on sale. Acura has on ...
