We drove Mercedes-Benz’s handsome new GLC this week, and found that it really hits the mark in most areas of concern for small SUV shoppers. Already we can tell that it’s far more enjoyable and far more engaging than much of the competition.

Another Mercedes-Benz we’re looking forward to is the updated SL-Class, a prototype of which we spotted this week. Thankfully, it looks like the design team is addressing some of the current model’s shortcomings, like the awkward front section.
Anyone in the market for a full-size pickup truck will be spoiled for choice come the 2016 model year. General Motors Company [NYSE:GM] will have updated versions of its Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra, while the Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] will start selling an F-150 Limited, the most luxurious, technologically advanced F-150 to date.
This Bugatti Veyron is the very first example delivered to a customer. Incredibly, the car has just 764 miles on the clock despite being a decade old. It’s going under the hammer at an auction taking place during next month’s Monterey Car Week.
Shelby American this week unveiled a 50th anniversary edition of its continuation series Daytona Coupe. For the first time, the continuation model will be offered with an aluminum body built to the exact measurements and standards of the six original cars.
We drove the 2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO and completely understand why some hate it while others love it. It’s insanely fast, has great boy-racer looks, and destroys cars costing far more. At the same time, it’s harsh, brash, and can be a bit of overkill on the street.
Honda unveiled an updated version of its Accord this week. The updated version, which goes on sale next month, as a 2016 model, is much better looking, and it’s also loaded with more tech. Unfortunately, there’s no extra power from the car’s aging powertrains.
Considering there were just over 100 McLaren F1s ever built, of which only 72 were built for the road, it’s surprising how often the cars trade hands. This spectacular example in red is going up for auction. It’s one of the standard F1s but its owner decided to upgrade the car to LM spec. That means extra power, less weight and loads more downforce.
