McLaren goes bespoke-crazy with Geneva carbon customs

McLaren goes bespoke-crazy with Geneva carbon customs

If every car show has its unofficial theme, then Geneva's is ridiculously bespoke luxury, and McLaren is bringing a pair of its own examples of automotive excess. In fact, it's the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) team that has taken the lead in Switzerland this year, first crafting a fully carbon fiber-bodied McLaren P1 to turn the already-at-11 hypercar up to 12.

2016 Volvo S60 T5 Inscription Review: Chinese takeout

2016 Volvo S60 T5 Inscription Review: Chinese takeout

Volvo is on a roll right now, its XC90 SUV named North American Truck of the Year and anticipation levels high for the S90 sedan unveiled in Detroit last month. Even smooth-talking Swedes can't sustain a whole company on two flagships, however, and so the meat of the range remains the leftovers from before Geely's purchase of the brand.

2016 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Review

2016 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Review

How is it possible for an automaker's best-selling vehicle to be the one that's landed the farthest from the tree in terms of brand identity? In a world where the Porsche name is synonymous with segment-defining sports cars, the great paradox is that the Porsche Cayenne SUV remains the most popular model in the showroom, outselling the 911 and the Boxster by a huge margin.

2016 Land Rover LR4 Review

2016 Land Rover LR4 Review

In our remix-obsessed culture, it's reassuring to come across something that's managed to endure the ebb and flow of fashion, and stay true to the qualities that have made it such an appealing part of the cultural landscape for so many years. I'm talking, of course, about the 2016 Land Rover LR4, the luxury box that defies convention by remaining wholly dedicated to the brand's original SUV formula.

Don't take that the wrong way. Although the term 'old-school' has increasingly become one of endearment, the Land Rover LR4 is no mere anachronism left to wither on the showroom floor. This full-size, three-row premium hauler still packs a serious dose of off-road technology combined with daily do-everything capability that explains why it's been such a popular member of the Land Rover line-up for so many years.

The 2017 BMW Alpina B7 turns luxe limo into a 600HP rocket

BMW's 7 Series was already a fast-moving tech and luxury behemoth, but that's nothing but a thrown-gauntlet for ALPINA, German tuning legend. Witness, then, the opulent performance excess that is the 2017 BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive, a four-door sedan with a hefty 600 HP and boasting a 0-60 mph run in just 3.6 seconds.

This GTC4Lusso is Ferrari’s idea of a practical family car

This GTC4Lusso is Ferrari’s idea of a practical family car

A 12-cylinder Ferrari might not be the obvious choice for a family car, but the Italian supercar company believes it might have a four-seater wildcard. The Ferrari GTC4Lusso combines its odd name with some fairly awkward proportions, but that shooting-brake style rear is vital to accommodate the 2+2 cabin that a grand tourer needs.

2016 BMW 650i Coupe Review

The luxury coupe is back in fashion, and would you believe it, BMW was already there waiting for us to realize. Sitting pretty as the grand tourer of choice for the teutonic set is the BMW 650i Coupe, sixteen feet of twin-turbo excess that - for $90k or thereabouts - will alternately cosset and hurtle you and three of your family, lovers, or friends.

HP’s Isaac Mizrahi “smartwatch” woos ladies with crystals

Some might accuse the current mobile tech world to be a predominantly male market, so once in a while a product like this comes around to try to appeal to women. Whether it actually has the intended, or maybe even opposite, effect is still debatable, but that's not stopping the likes of HP from trying. Partnering with renowned designer Isaac Mizrahi, HP is launching the Isaac Mizrahi smartwatch, a wearable time-telling accessory that is, to be blunt, really more a luxury item than a conventional smartwatch.

Living Concept: How Lexus made the astonishing LC 500

Making a concept car is easy. Taking that concept and coaxing a production car out of it - something people can walk into a showroom and drive away, something you can offer a warranty on - is far, far harder, as Lexus discovered when it decided to move the LF-LC from car show stands to dealership forecourts.
