This is probably as close to inside the McLaren P1 GTR as you’ll get

Owning a McLaren of any sort is something most people don't get to experience, so we'll forgive you for trying to achieve the feeling of sitting inside the bespoke track focused racer by checking out these brand new interior shots and making "vroom-vroom" noises. McLaren revealed the P1 GTR's swooping exterior and crazy 986HP engine back in August, but had kept the driver accommodations secret until today. Perhaps the best part is the distinctive steering wheel, inspired by the McLaren MP4-23 that won the F1 championship in 2008.

Lexus prices up 2015 NX and RC F

Lexus prices up 2015 NX and RC F

Lexus has priced up its new NX baby-SUV for 2015, as well as putting a final tag on its slinky RC F coupe, as it prepares to take on its German rivals and shed what remains of its stuffy, anonymous image. The 2015 NX, which we drove back in July, distills the company's larger RX SUV into something a little more affordable as well as with a smaller footprint, though ramps up the distinctive - and polarizing - styling in the process, particularly on the F SPORT model with its even larger "spindle" grille.

Vertu for Bentley: a luxury phone that feels like a luxury car

Vertu for Bentley: a luxury phone that feels like a luxury car

Barely two weeks after outing the Aster, Vertu is here again with another luxury smartphone for the affluent.. This time, however, it isn't doing it alone. Partnering with fellow British company Bentley, the Vertu for Bentley gives luxury car lovers a fitting mobile device to go with their Bentley car, which they presumably have. But aside from sporting trademark Bentley designs in addition to Vertu's own signature, the smartphone at least does have decent hardware that won't leave owners shortchanged for the price.

Cadillac schemes plans to trample Tesla

Cadillac schemes plans to trample Tesla

Cadillac is planning a strike at Tesla, with a fully-electric luxury car on the roadmap that will see the company challenge the Model S as the GM-owned marque broadens its play for eco-friendly motoring. The all-electric car - the name of which has not been confirmed - will be one of a number of new models that includes the refreshed ELR plug-in hybrid and a luxury sedan now known to be the CT6. However, Cadillac is also considering a number of other models, including new crossovers and an even huger, uber-luxe sedan to take on the best of German rivals from Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi.

Tesla’s wicked-fast P85D just drove me autonomously

Tesla’s wicked-fast P85D just drove me autonomously

I confess, I didn't really take Tesla's test driver seriously when he told me I needed to put my head safely against the headrest before he floored the new Model S P85D. Sure, EVs are torquey from a standing start, but 0-60mph in 3.2 seconds isn't unheard of in the sports car world. Then we accelerated down Tesla's LED-lit tunnel, a multi-colored birth canal for the fastest four-door sedan ever made.

Tesla Model S “D” adds AWD: Self-driving Auto-Pilot

Tesla Model S “D” adds AWD: Self-driving Auto-Pilot

Tesla promised us something new with its big "D" reveal, and the reality is a new version of the Model S - the P85D - and some smarter driving tech that helps push the EV ahead of its Germanic rivals offer. Announced in LA at an event swamped with existing Model S owners (many of whom were hoping it would be the Model X SUV that was actually the secret star of the show), the "D" isn't a new model as such but in fact new versions of the existing Model S, adding an all-wheel-drive version to across the line-up that boosts traction, performance, and range. Maybe more exciting, though, is the future ability for the car to - in limited circumstances - drive itself to meet you.

Infiniti Q80 Inspiration teases hybrid smart car plans

It's clearly a day for luxurious sedans, and after Aston Martin's Lagonda for the 1-percent of the 1-percent comes Infiniti's Q80 Inspiration, a hint at the direction the company's next uber-four-door will take. Signaling - but not confirming, Infiniti is careful to point out - some of the themes the production Q80 will take as it attempts to challenge Mercedes-Benz's S-Class and BMW's 7 Series.

2015 Mustang gets Saleen and Roush tuner treatment

2015 Mustang gets Saleen and Roush tuner treatment

Ford's take on the 2015 Mustang is no slouch, either in the looks or the performance departments as we found when we took the new Pony Car for a spin, but that hasn't stopped some of the more notorious tuners from weighing in with their own interpretations. Roush and Saleen both have a long history of taking regular Mustangs and fettling them into something a whole lot more extreme, and each has begun sharing what they plan to do with the new car.
