Here is the scenario - My 2012 CTS-V wagon was stolen out of my gated driveway, in what would be considered a nice neighborhood. It was a targeted theft. There has been a plethora of CTS-V theft in the Houston metro area. I actually saw my wheels, tires, and Brembo calipers posted for sale in a local CTS-V Facebook group, a week after it was stolen. The vehicle was recovered, but was chopped and stripped of engine, trans, exhaust, wheels, etc… Obviously, it was declared a total loss. Being the more rare Wagon body, it was a welcome addition at local festivals and car shows. My … [Read more...] about My Cadillac CTS-V Wagon Was Stolen And Trashed! What Car Should I Buy?

2018 Nissan GT-R Track Edition, Gingerman Raceway, May 2018Enlarge PhotoNissan's GT-R Track Edition may not be as fast as the Nismo model, but it comes with a huge price advantage. We just drove the latest 2018 model to see what this son of Godzilla can do. BMW has just redesigned the X5, and if you're interested you'd better be willing to pay more. The latest 2019 model represents a $1,200 increase over the outgoing one, but it also has a few key differences. BMW also has a redesigned X4 being introduced this year. We took one for a spin near BMW's plant in South Carolina and found it to be quite the driver's car. 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class (Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon)Enlarge Photo Another vehicle we drove was Mercedes-AMG's E63 S Wagon. In this SUV-crazy era, we don't see enough bankers’ hot rods anymore, but the mad scientists at AMG have a machine to feed the few who desire one. This week Toyota took the wraps off a new Supra race car designed for NASCAR's Xfinity Series.

BOWLING GREEN, Kentucky — I arrived at the NCM Motorsports Park (MSP) race track about an hour earlier than expected by the Mercedes ground crew. Not because I drove my allocated AMG GLC 63 S Coupe faster than anyone else, but because I took a shorter detour around some of my newly discovered favorite roads in the area. Those roads just happen to be close to the race track and Bowling Green happens to be my new home after 30 years in South Florida.Getting there early gave me a chance to look over the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Sedan and AMG E63 S Wagon before things got started on track. These two sporty people movers were our allocated track weapons for the day.You may ask why anyone put a luxury sedan and wagon on a race track? First, because it’s fun. Then again, I’d take a shopping trolley round a race track if someone put an engine in it, so I may not be the right person to comment. Most importantly, Mercedes must think it’s a reasonable idea or at least, the … [Read more...] about Track Drive: 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Sedan and Wagon

The 2018 Mercedes AMG E63 S is wrought from the middle of your Venn diagram of desires. You want a car with power and personality; you need a car that can carry kids and cargo. You want a 600 horsepower hot rod; you need safety and subtly. You like wagons, because you have good taste and are smart. Well strap yourselves in—kids and groceries and all—and hang the hell on. (Full disclosure: I asked Mercedes-Benz for this vehicle specifically since a few of my colleagues you know and love needed to be carted around LA for a couple days. I asked to keep it longer because, come on, AMG wagon.) Fast station wagons are quintessentially Jalopnik because they’re as useful as they are artful.

And yeah, it’s fast as hell. On a short … [Read more...] about Here’s Why The 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon Is Still The God King Of Cars
