The Aston Martin DB10 was designed espcially for the latest Bond picture (Image: Aston Mar...

One thing about the James Bond film franchise is that, aside from Batman, he's the only hero where news of his latest adventure can be eclipsed by what car he's driving. So, it's no surprise that the announcement at Pinewood Studios that the next 007 epic, Spectre, which begins production on December 8, was overshadowed a bit when Aston Martin together and EON Productions unveiled the new Aston Martin DB10, which will "co-star" in the film.  Read More

Large headlights are one of the defining elements of the Viva's design

Vauxhall continues to expand its small car range, with the release of the latest Viva. It will sit alongside the Adam and Corsa in Vauxhall's lineup, and shares their 1.0-liter ECOTEC engine.  Read More

Ferrari's new 1035-hp, 900-Nm FXX K (for KERS) hybrid is based on the 950-hp limited-edition LaFerrari hybrid supercar though it will never be sold or raced in sanctioned competition. Completely unfettered by homologation and racing regulations, the FXX K is part of a new research and development programme similar to the 599XX and FXX programmes which essentially involve laboratory cars designed specifically for the track and reserved for a select group of exclusive Ferrari client test drivers.  Read More

The Audi A7 Sportback h-tron quattro

One of the biggest tech stories at this year's LA Auto Show was the fuel cell car. Toyota led the way by launching the Mirai, and Volkswagen slid a fuel cell powertrain into the Golf SportWagen. Audi showed a sportier, more luxurious side to fuel cells in the A7 Sportback h-tron quattro. Ingolstadt calls it the "first performance fuel cell vehicle."  Read More

BMW is taking the technology it developed for the i3 and i8, and looking to roll it out as...

BMW is doubling down on its electric eDrive technology by announcing that it plans to eventually produce plug-in hybrid versions of all its core-brand models. The electrification process will start with the presentation of a 3 series prototype, as well as a group of plug-in hybrid concepts that can get around town on battery power alone, but that can also burn some dinosaur bones if you need to take a longer trip. The new BMW hybrid concepts will be presented in Miramar, France.  Read More

Sometimes overlooked as a #3 in the German luxury car wars, Audi is making a determined push to get noticed. Over the past half-year alone, it's lapped the Hockenheim with a driverless car, discussed plans for introducing one of the market's first autonomous cars and shined lasers into the future. Now, it's provided a sneak peek at the future of its design in the form of the Prologue concept, and that future looks as bright as its laser headlights.  Read More

The Rocket made its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show

The new Ford Mustang hasn't been out for long, but tuners are already beginning to explore what is possible when given the Mustang’s coupe body and more sophisticated suspension setup. Galpin Auto Sports and Henrik Fisker have approached the challenge of improving the Mustang by adding (much) more power and a bespoke carbon fiber body, for the Fisker-Galpin Rocket.  Read More

Google Glass is being used in a pilot program to evaluate pre-series vehicles

Google Glass has had some bad press of late, with users called some very unkind names and some industry analysts calling it this decade's Segway, but BMW has some love for the wearable head-mounted display. At its plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, BMW is running a pilot program to see how Google Glass can improve the quality control of its pre-series vehicles as they make the transition from prototype to full production.  Read More

McLaren's P1 needs little introduction: the hybrid-V8 powered hypercar sits in a realm where rivals are scarce, and performance figures are almost beyond comprehension – 0-100 km/h takes just 2.8 seconds, and the car will cover the quarter mile in 9.8 seconds from a standing start. The P1 is not just about crazy acceleration numbers though, it is a product of McLaren's impressive motorsports history, with a focus on pushing the edge of what a car can do through aerodynamics and innovative design. Gizmag took a close look at the incredible P1 at the opening of McLaren's new dealership in Melbourne, Australia.  Read More

The 1963 Batmobile goes on auction next month

It turns out that the earliest known officially licensed Batmobile was built in 1963 and is going to auction at Heritage Auctions next month after receiving extensive restoration.  Read More
