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.

Gizmag took a close look at the incredible P1 at the opening of McLaren's new dealership in Melbourne, Australia.  Read More

The CLA Shooting Brake's front styling is almost identical to the styling on the coupe

Mercedes continues to expand its lineup into new niches. The movement started in 2004 with the CLS four-door coupe, and continued when the range expanded to include a shooting brake model.

Eco-Motive's dual-fuel H-motor splits the engine into two more efficient halves

American inventor Herns Louis has come up with an interesting way to reduce inefficiencies inherent in regular dual-fuel motors. His H-motor design features two cylinder banks, each running on a single fuel source – so the left can be tuned for power and efficiency on gasoline, and the right can be tuned for CNG.  Read More

The new Kuga is Ford ’s latest foray into the medium SUV market and despite some stiff competition, it packs enough ammunition to make its presence felt.

Think Los Angeles, and the first vehicle that comes to mind is probably a fast, powerful convertible along the lines of the new Ferrari F60 America. A pickup truck or SUV is likely to be well down the list. And that's largely how this year's Los Angeles Show played out with a whole lot of flashy cars.

After seeing Chevy's sneak preview of the Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo, we got the idea that it was going to be the most extreme Vision Gran Turismo yet, both in terms of styling and technology. We weren't disappointed when Chevy pulled the cloth off at the LA Auto Show last week. The radical racer uses a highly conceptual laser powertrain to rattle the track with 900 hp of thrust.  Read More
