    Volkswagen is a very big company. That means that sometimes it breaks records accidentally and other times it can throw its considerable heft behind breaking them intentionally.  The company has highlighted nine Guinness World Records it currently holds to give us a sense of the truly...

    The Lamborghini Huracan STO is finally here and it’s about as wild as you might expect. Making use of a race-car derived aero package, the whole package is apparently even more extreme than the Performante. Based on Lamborghini’s Super Trofeo car—the Huracan made for Lambo’s own race series—the...

    Ah, the joys and sorrows bringatrailer.com can bring. Joy: finding odd things like this time capsule VW Fox , or this incredibly clean Piaggio rickshaw . Sorrow: the "bring a trailer tax" where even the most basic car listed seems to sell for outrageous amounts, keeping the car you've lusted...

    Few manufacturers have a visual identity as defined as the one at  Porsche . With the iconic 911 acting as the leader, the brand has spent this century diversifying, while maintaining a consistent style. How does chief designer Michael Mauer and the team pull it off? By constantly pushing...

    A wild trademark appeared recently on the European Intellectual Property Office. The brand is claiming the name ID. JUNGLEZZ for use on a vehicle.  I don’t think I really have to tell you that this will likely be applied to an EV but just which EV is interesting. The name, back in August, was...

    At 94, Bruce and Winnie Meyers are finally hanging their CEO ties and selling Meyers Manx LLC. The company is being sold to Trousdale Ventures.  The idea of a historic company like Meyers Manx being sold to an investment firm may sound a little scary, but the firm is run by noted car nut...

    Some really big news happened this week. We're not sure if you saw it, but it was one super Tuesday: Volkswagen elected to reveal the 8th-generation Golf R . With this new model, there's no debate: the MK8 will be the most powerful R ever. VW's new candidate promises 315 horsepower, two...
  10. The Audi Lounge
    The colossus at Rhodes is an Audi RS e-tron GT this week, as European media have had an opportunity to drive pre-production cars around the Greek island.  Naturally, this being an RS car, CarWow’s Mat Watson had to see what it was like in the quarter-mile. And what it’s like is fast. 10.9...

    Volkswagen unveiled the Mk8 Golf R today and it will make 315 hp 310 lb-ft of torque. Although that’s a modest upgrade from the European Performance model, the American model will make the full 315 hp this time, so there’s no more Atlantic power gap. That means 27 more hp and 30 more lb-ft of...

    The Mk8 Golf is on its way and VW insiders are calling it the biggest generational improvement ever in the Golf R’s history. Whether it lives up to the hype, we won’t know until November 4 (very early in the morning because of time zones).  What we do know is that it will be powered by VW’s...
  13. The Bugatti Lounge
    “Driving the Bolide is like riding a cannonball,” says Bugatti. And with a top speed of more than 311 mph, that seems like a fair comparison. That speed is achieved thanks to Bugatti’s familiar 8.0-liter W16 engine, which has been tuned to its highest power level yet. Making 1,850 metric...

    It's Halloween week, so we combed the internet looking for spooky VWs. While that search came up short, we turned our search on orange cars. While you might think there are few orange cars, Volkswagen has offered the bright shade for decades, from aircooled Beetles to current Jettas and Tiguans...

    It's Friday once again and you know what that means: it's time we highlight a great car build from our forums. This week we have one of the most popular cars Volkswagen's ever made, the fourth-generation Jetta. But this is no ordinary MKIV, oh no. It's something quite special. North American...

    The Gold R’s unveiling is just around the corner, but before we get to see it, we’ll have to satisfy ourselves with videos of it testing at the Nurburgring.  Apparently uncamouflaged, the R looks pretty handy around the fearsome track. Able to carry lots of speed through the corners, we have...

    There might be a call to Orchid Euro in someone’s future. This absolutely mint 1980 Golf GLD has just gone up for sale with Silverstone Auctions in the UK. Originally sold in Holland, the car remains right-hand-drive for reasons of cheapness. You see, Brits were charged an arm and a leg for Mk1...

    It's Monday one again (ed note, this story was supposed to go out Monday, but it being Canadian Thanksgiving and your editor being workshy, it didn't get done. Unfortunately, that means the car has since sold. I apologize for the delay, but you still get a gallery of a pretty rad GTI and some...

    Despite pulling out of the Goodwood SpeedWeek, Volkswagen R still has some news to share. Although it’s not exactly the news we were hoping for, the company announced that they will be unveiling the Golf R on November 4. We’re not expecting any big surprises from the latest generation of the...
