That includes not only use of the vehicle, but insurance and maintenance too.

Caviar iPhone X Tesla sacrifices beauty for solar charging

Caviar iPhone X Tesla sacrifices beauty for solar charging

Apple takes great pride in developing products that are as beautiful as they are useful. Although some will argue that the latest iPhones have diverged slightly, they still have an air of elegance to them. Leave it to Russian company Caviar to take that long-standing philosophy and turn it on its head. From the company that brought you iPhones with Trump’s and Putin’s faces comes the iPhone X Tesla, a smartphone that charges via the sun by putting ribbed solar panels on the iPhone X originally fashionable glass back.

Expected to hit dealerships in Spring 2018, the good news is that there'll be an M Sport X package available.

Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake revealed

Aston Martin surprised us with the Vanquish Zagato family back in August, and the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake is even more dramatic as we get closer to its release. Revealed in high-res photos today, the new car is the fourth of the new family, though numbers will be exceedingly rare. Indeed, Aston Martin says that only 325 cars overall will bear the family nameplate.

We need to talk about the Polestar 1

We need to talk about the Polestar 1

Until now, Polestar has been relying on "I didn't expect a Volvo to drive like this!" to stand out in the auto industry. This week, we got to see the next act for the newly-established EV automaker. The Polestar 1 may have relatively tiny production numbers in mind - just 500 cars per year - but it stands a chance of starting some big dominos toppling.

2018 Audi S5 Review: Let’s roleplay “sexy architect”

2018 Audi S5 Review: Let’s roleplay “sexy architect”

"Well," I said, filling for time as I racked my brain for a negative, "sometimes the little arm that holds out your seatbelt doesn't grab it properly. Then you have to reach back." If that sounds like the sort of First World Problem that First World Problems themselves complain about then you're not wrong. Welcome to the world of the 2018 Audi S5.

The 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante is pure convertible beauty

The 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante is pure convertible beauty

Aston Martin may have some fearsome V8 and V12 coupes in its line-up, but for true grand tourer style you really need a droptop. Enter, then, the 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante, dubbed "the ultimate convertible sports GT" and, at first glance at least, only with a little hyperbole. As you might expect, there's more to it than just peeling the roof off a DB11.

2019 Audi A8 First Drive: The new luxury

2019 Audi A8 First Drive: The new luxury

"Vorsprung durch Technik" doesn't translate to "know your place, human," but in the case of the 2019 Audi A8 it probably should. Fourth generation of the luxury sedan, it's the most technologically advanced, gadget-packed iteration to-date, paving the way for Audi's autonomous driving future among a host of other "firsts". While the new A8 won't find its way to US shores until fall 2018, Audi invited us to get an early preview - I just didn't expect to have a crisis of identity while I was there.

Koenigsegg Agera RS Rockets 0-400km/h-0 in 36.44 seconds

Koenigsegg Agera RS Rockets 0-400km/h-0 in 36.44 seconds

The Koenigsegg Agera RS is one of the sexiest and fastest of all the hypercars in the world. Recently the company put test driver Niklas Lilja behind the wheel of a customer owned Agera RS to run the car up to 400 km/h from a standstill and then return the car to a dead stop, as quickly as possible. For those of us in the States this is a run from zero mph to a bit over 248 mph and back to zero mph.

2018 Aston Martin DB11 V8 first-drive: The driver’s GT

2018 Aston Martin DB11 V8 first-drive: The driver’s GT

First the bad news: just because Aston Martin is adding a V8 engine to the DB11 lineup, doesn’t mean that the car is much more affordable, just in case you’ve been holding out. Indeed, if price is important to you, then might I divert your attention to the 2018 Lexus LC 500 instead. The V8-powered DB11 is on an entirely different level, distinguishing itself intriguingly when compared to the driving dynamics and characteristics of the 600 horsepower V12 DB11 we drove earlier this year.

2018 Lexus LS 500 First Drive: The luxury of identity

2018 Lexus LS 500 First Drive: The luxury of identity

If it's usually your thirties when you discover your real identify, you could argue the 2018 Lexus LS 500 and LS 500h are ahead of schedule. The fifth-generation of the automaker's flagship luxury sedan arrives just before the car's thirtieth birthday, promising more refinement, more technology, and - arguably most important - more character. If the original LS defined Lexus as a luxury upstart in 1989, the new LS finally sees the automaker come to terms with its Japanese roots.
