The hardcore Mini JCW GP is here. It is certainly a driver’s car. It should turn very good times at the track or turn heads on the streets. It is, however, a little expensive. At an incredible $39,950 (yes, you read that right), it is the most expensive MINI ever.
Lamborghini surprised alot of people by unveiling the Egoista at its 50th anniversary bash yesterday. The Egoista is either a concept or one-off car. It is a single-seat mid-engined supercar powered by the Lamborghini V10 found in the Gallardo. Continue reading
Wow. This car certainly looks…unique. The design is a huge departure from the boring, conservative and boxy Jeep Liberty. Continue reading
Although the X5 is getting a little long in the tooth, it is still a competitive option. BMW has done a good job to keep the X5 looking fresh. They also have kept it from looking “soft”. The car looks almost a little intimidating on the road. The X5 is drives well, however it is not the most engaging option in the “around-$50k” SUV segment. That honor would go the the Porsche Cayenne. Continue reading
Sorry about the wait, but Opinions On Cars is back! Over the next week or so, we will be undergoing a huge revival. We have a new layout and we will be expanding into new services. We will be implementing Twitter and offer unique advertising opportunities! We will also add a “sister blog” that will provide news, editorials and article series. By offering advertisements and advice, we will make money in order to expand our services even more. If you would like to donate money (any bit helps), please see our “About” page. After we finish our revival (about one more week), we will go back online and resume publishing articles daily!
Thank you for your patience
The new G37 is here, however, its is called the Q50. Infinitis new nomenclature ditches the G’s, M’s, JX’s etc, and replaces them with Q’s and QX’s. This is the first car to wear the new naming scheme. The car looks good. Certainly an improvement over its competitors (ATS, A4, 3 Series, Lexus IS). The most important thing is how it drives, and we will not know how it does so for a while. Until then, peruse the pictures after the jump, and decide for yourself if its a winner or not.
Just a few pics of the RS7. Not much to say besides the fact that it looks great. The best looking four-door on the market gets 560hp from a 4.0 liter TT V8. 0-60 in less than 4 seconds and it is coming to the US, unlike the RS6 Avant. One unique aspect is the “Quattro” lettering in the grill. In the back there is a large diffuser and large oval exhaust tips. Just like the A7 and S7, it looks great. We will have to wait a while before we are able to see how it drives and how it stacks up against the M6 GC and CLS63 AMG.
We are not happy with Mercedes moving down market into FWD, but if they have to do it, it may as well look like this. The CLA250 has a 2.0 liter four-cylinder making a modest 208hp and 258ft-lb. However, when you that with a 7-speed dual-clutch auto and either FWD or AWD, and it does not sound that bad after all. Styling-wise, it looks like a baby CLS, and that is what it was supposed to be. It does look very good and does look upscale. Look for the CLA45 AMG in the near future, with about 350hp and AWD.
Thank you, Chevy. Thank you very much. This is absolutely amazing. Just look at it! The new Corvette takes a huge evolutionary leap. It does still resemble the C6 slightly, but it is still looks very new, and is still instantly recognizable by non-car people as a Vette. The Stingray (name of base C7) has lots more details than its predecessor. There are more vents and creases, but all to great effect. There are already many criticisms on the styling of the Stingray floating around the car community. The biggest ones are a Viper-like front fascia and a GT-R-like roofline. Yes, we do see those, but they are not anywhere near “copying”. Of course there are going to be some similarities between front-engine, five-figure, 2 door supercars. Other complaints are small or not there at all. The engine is the new LT1, making an estimated 450hp and 450 ft-lb. According to GM, this is all good for a sub-4 second 0-60 time. The transmissions available include a 6-speed automatic and a 7-speed manual (yes, 7 speed). The manual gearbox has rev-matching on upshifts and downshifts. There is an optional Z51 performance package, which adds aero bits, larger wheels and mechanical upgrades. The interior is good. Did we just say that a Corvette interior was good? Yes. To our surprise too. It is covered in leather and vinyl, not plastic. The design of the interior looks great, too. The optional track seats look very much like the 458′s. One more thing…the Stingray badge looks great. The first C7 is expected to be auctioned off for charity, and all C7s will be be delivered to customers in the fall of 2013. Look for the ZR1 and ZO6 in the future. Very nice job, Chevy
