With introductions like the Renault EOLAB and Citroën C4 Cactus Airflow in the days leading up to the 2014 Paris Motor Show, it became obvious that the French had big plans for their home show. French automakers, big and small, didn't disappoint, showing a multitude of highly stylized, tech-heavy concepts and vehicles during the show. They had such a strong showing, in fact, that we thought it appropriate to give them a dedicated space separate from our main Paris wrap-up. Here's what the French have to say about modern vehicle design.  Read More

The Audi team proved that it knows how to win

For the last decade and a half, Audi has dominated the World Endurance Championship racing. It would be easy to dismiss yesterday's 13th Le Mans 24 Hour Race win for the company in 16 years as "same stuff, different year." In that time, it has significantly changed the world's perception of both diesel engines and hybrid power trains. Yet yesterday's win is probably its finest achievement.  Read More

Peugeot will use the 2008 DKR to return to Dakar after a 25-year absence

The 2008 DKR is a big, brutal version of its namesake crossover, and it looks hungry for a win.  Read More
