Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo concept, 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show
Bugatti is previewing its Veyron replacement with a supercar concept debuting this month at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show. The concept was developed for the Vision Gran Turismo challenge and we got our first look at the stunning beast this week.

This week we also got our first look at Tesla Motors’ [NSDQ:TSLA] Model X in its final production guise. With Ludicrous Mode enabled, the most potent P90D variant will hit 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and pass the quarter mile in 11.7 seconds. It won’t be cheap, though. CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that the Model X will cost $5k more than a similarly-equipped Model S.
The verdict is in. After having driven the Ford Motor Company’s [NYSE:F] new Mustang Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R on the road and track, we found the cars to be better than any previous Mustang by a very wide margin. As much as we liked driving the Mustang GT, the GT350 corrects all its niggling flaws, and the GT350R is just the icing on the cake.
We’re sure you remember back to February 2014, as that was when a giant sinkhole opened up beneath the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. One of the cars damaged was the 1,000,000th Corvette ever built. It’s now been restored to its former glory. Check out all the before and after shots.
Jaguar’s new F-Pace is set to debut soon, but the British automaker simply couldn’t wait and has already dropped the first photo of the small luxury SUV in production guise. It’s one handsome SUV, but we’re more impressed with what’s under the skin of this big cat.
Mercedes-Benz revealed its new S-Class Cabriolet ahead of the car’s Frankfurt Auto Show debut. Our pick would be the S63 variant from Mercedes-AMG, which comes with a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 good for 577 horsepower.
The new James Bond movie Spectre is only a couple of months out from its debut, and to celebrate its partnership with the film franchise as well as the starring role of its DB10 in the movie, Aston Martin rolled out the new DB9 GT Bond Edition. We especially like the new Spectre Silver paint finish.
