Bugatti shows the new Vitesse Legend next to the original Black Bess in Beijing

It seems the only constant at international auto shows these days is a new Veyron special edition. Bugatti has been unloading these superficial Veyron updates one by one, in an effort to keep attracting buyers to the decade-old model.

What's old is new again – the Vicci 6.2 Convertible

Back in 2007, we first heard about the planned US$2 million Natalia supercar. Designed by Palm Springs-based DiMora Motorcar, it's envisioned as the world’s most luxurious and technologically advanced automobile. DiMora is still working on that lofty goal, but in the meantime it's just released a model with a look that brings decidedly lower-tech cars to mind – the 1930s-inspired Vicci 6.2 Convertible.  Read More

One of the two Calfee convertibles, in its tandem configuration

Tandem bicycles are great for allowing couples or friends to ride together, but they're not exactly conducive to riding by yourself.
