2015 Audi allroad 2.0T Quattro Tiptronic — Review

I’ve driven a number of Audi vehicles over the years, and I’ve yet to encounter one that I did not enjoy driving. It has created a bit of a love/hate relationship with the brand for me.

A Whipple-supercharged Wegner Motorsports LS7 with a Holley Fuel … Continue reading Ring Brothers 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle “Recoil”

2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE — Review

The original Range Rover Sport hit the streets in 2005, it was an immediate hit and introduced the brand to a new demographic of buyers. Not an easy act to follow. Does the 2014 Range Rover Sport have the goods for a successful followup? Based on Land Rover’s all-new Range Rover, the Range Rover Sport … Continue reading 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE — Review
