    From The Car Connection: RIP, Nissan Xterra When the Nissan Xterra debuted in the 2000 model year, it was hard to ignore. It was big, it was rugged, and it was often bright yellow. Alas, the ray of sunshine known as the Xterra is fading fast. Its demise has been rumored since at least February, though the writing on the wall is much older. 2016...

    Yeah, you know by now that we're Guzzi fans, so it's always a special pleasure to return to Mandello del Lario - there's just something so romantic about its location, and the way the factory survives from year on year. On this occasion, Moto Guzzi were launching their two latest models to be based around the 1400cc motor and chassis first used in the California, which we reviewed back in Issue 5. In truth, the Eldorado and Audace aren't really new models because they're been around for a year now having debuted at bike shows last year, but what did seem new this time round was...

    Combining the protection of a leather palm and hard-plastic knuckle protectors with a mesh shell and plenty of perforations in the fingers, the Phoenix 4.0 gives us no reason to forego proper hand protection, not matter how hot it gets.

    Renting a supercar sounds like a lot of fun until it ends up like this. This Ferrari 458 Italia was apparently rented for a wedding by a 29-year-old for five days but it was swiftly totaled after crashing into two other cars and a wall. A VW Passat and Vauxhall Astra were the other two involved but it seems the Ferrari is the worst off after ending up wedged underneath the VW. The driver had paid a £5000 deposit (around $7800) which he will most certainly not get back.

    3 years ago - By Zero 2 Turbo

    When I had the BMW X6 M for a week, I learnt that in stock form it is one of the most mental cars money can buy but it for the Germans from G-Power, this is not enough.
    They have unveiled their own program for the beast which boost horsepower by 80 and torque by 81Nm. It now pushes out 650hp and a whopping 830Nm of torque which is enough to get it all the way to 300 km/h. These performance gains are thanks to the G-Power Bi-Tronik 5 V1 power module which is a plug and play device place between the factory ECU and the engine.
