Buick’s Avenir is lustworthy (& I can’t believe I just said that)

A beautiful Buick? Wonders never cease: while GM's affordable-luxury marque may be better known for appealing to the golf set, its Avenir concept for the Detroit Auto Show is a legitimate stunner. The huge sedan is inspired by the sea, so Buick claims, with calming waves that coast along the side profile, but beyond the marketing hype it's simply a genuinely good-looking car. It's also clearly a modern Buick, with a huge grille, plenty of chrome that manages to not look out of place, and a particularly distinctive rear.

Mercedes-Benz F 015 self-driving car in-depth: AI & lasers

Mercedes-Benz teased something big - figuratively and literally - for CES 2015, and the F 015 Luxury in Motion autonomous car ticks both boxes. Latest in the German marque’s F line of prototypes and proofs-of-concept, the F 015 is a luxury lounge on wheels, as Mercedes flirts not only with how cars of tomorrow might pilot themselves, but what those inside will do with the extra time they’ve suddenly had handed to them. Strikingly long, with color-changing LED lights on the outside to show if the AI is in charge and four electrically pivoting seats inside, it’s Mercedes’ take on what transport could look like in 2030 and beyond.
