supercharged 333-horsepower engine and mat the pedal, you should be prepared for a very serious response. Head, meet headrest. Without getting too technical, all we can say is…DANG! The S4 is the performance version of Audi’s A4 sedan, and performance is exactly what … Continue reading →

2013 Fiat 500 Abarth

Designed for the track enthusiast, the 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth could be known best for its commercials featuring Supermodel

2013 Buick Encore

2013 Buick Encore

Brand new for 2013, the Buick Encore is 168 inches long and 70 inches wide, which could be the reason Shaq does TV commercials for the Buick LaCrosse instead of the Buick Encore.
