I full-heartedly disagree, as I find Mazda's small roadster one of the purest and most fun to drive sports cars around, but you know what they say about the Miata / MX-5. There's also another racy saying about men with big cars, and well, you get the picture with this extended version of the MX-5.

Read more

For various reasons, some people don't want to be seen in expensive, flashy cars, but at the same time, they also don't want to give up on the luxuries that such vehicles are equipped with.

Up until now, Lincoln has failed to compete against, not only competent German and Japanese luxury brands, but also even home rival Cadillac.

Putin Reportedly Unhappy with New Zil-4112P Limo, Marussia Tries its Luck with Concepts


Read more

We don't know if being the President of Russia is an easy job, but it's one that Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin is more than happy to do, as the former KGB officer has served President from 2000 to 2008, as Prime Minister from 1999 to 2000 and again from 2008 to 2012, while he was also re-elected President again in May of 2012. What can we say; the man loves being a head of state…

The job comes with many benefits, including the ability to choose the kind of wheels you roll around in. However, Putin wasn't satisfied with simply picking out an existing car to base a presidential limousine; no, he wanted one created from scratch from a Russian company, so he asked local automakers to present their proposals.

Read more

Of all the passenger cars that come to mind, a stretched Lincoln Town Car limousine must be one of the most inappropriate vehicles to be in at a McDonald's drive-through.

It's not hard to imagine why, nonetheless, someone insisted on riding his stretch limo to a local drive-through instead of simply parking it and walking a couple of feet into the store to order his meal…or at least he attempted to, as surprise, surprise, he experienced some problems.

Eco-Conscious Nissan Leaf Stretch Limousine for Eight Goes Under the Hammer


Read more

As it turns out, the world's first street-legal electric limousine based on the Nissan Leaf didn't hold its job at the Embassy suites hotel in Nashville, Tennesse, for long as we found the car listed for sale on eBay with a starting bid of $50,000 (equal to €39,400 or GBP 31,500) and a 'Buy it now price' of $57,000 (€44,900 or GBP 35,900).

Messing about with Chevrolet's Camaro is nothing new or uncommon, but turning a fifth generation model into a party house on wheels for desperate housewives and hooting teenagers, is something you don't get to see very often, which is why this limousine caught our attention.

Made for a company named ShowTime limos, based in the city of Perth in Western Australia, the stretched model is built on the Camaro Transformers Special Edition in SS guise, which means it's powered by GM's 6.2-liter V8 engine that offers up to 426 horsepower.
