The Acura SUV-X debuts at the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show

From the boxy, gas-guzzling full-sized pickups-with-cabins of old, to the new generation of chunky, car-based crossovers, the "utility vehicle" is here to stay. The least auto manufacturers can do in that case is design models that are more visually dynamic than four-wheeled cargo crates or short, bloated station wagons. With the SUV-X concept, Acura attempts to take that next step by blending in some styling derived from its NSX supercar.  Read More

Making its debut at the Shanghai Auto Show, Porsche's new Panamera S E-Hybrid stood front and center, metaphorically at least, among its Panamera siblings: a now nine-strong lineup, refreshed for 2014. The Panamera S E-Hybrid differentiates itself from its predecessor, the plain 'ol Panamera S Hybrid, with a much-improved battery and electric motor. Performance-wise, the S E-Hybrid is no slouch, hitting 60 mph (97 km/h) from a standstill in 5.2 seconds, and nudging 167 mph (269 km/h) at top speed.  Read More

Since the 1920s, British auto manufacturer MG has provided the world with some quirky, yet iconic sports cars.

As part of Lamborghini’s 50th Anniversary celebrations the company has set aside some special editions for a select few. First off came the outrageous, fire spitting Veneno. Given only three Venenos were made at US$4 million a piece, your disappointment in not acquiring one is understandable. But with the release of the Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario, the company from Sant’Agata hopes to change your odds. Gizmag's Mike Hanlon was on hand to lay eyes and pixels upon the limited edition beast as revealed at the Shanghai Auto Show.  Read More
