There's going to be something different about the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year that might be worth planning a trip around. This year, the show's organizers will give people in Sin City a chance to see the show in person regardless of whether or not they are directly affiliated with the automobile industry. SEMA is one of the largest trade shows the city hosts every year, but normally admission is reserved for people who are there on "official" business. Typically, that means its a mostly off-limits mecca for modified car enthusiasts, but that won't be true this year because on Friday, November 7, much of the show will be publicly on display for "SEMA Ignited." From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., cars from the show will pour out of the Las Vegas Convention Center onto the Strip. The show's organizers said they decided to add the event because there have been so many enthusiasts crowding around the exit at the end of

And there's a LOT of amazing hardware to see, from the Ferrari 458 Spider A, to a wild new Lamborghini Hybrid. The performance car action doesn't stop there either with the world premiere of the Mercedes AMG GT set to take place, along with a new 500+ horsepower C63 AMG.
Additional German performance comes from the new Audi TT, while rumors suggest a TT sedan will also be unveiled.
A long list of other cars includes the Range Rover Sport, Jaguar XE, Honda Civic Type R, Fiat 500X, Kia Sorento, VW Golf Alltrack and the Toyota C-HR – a sort of Prius crossover.
And one really big surprise is a 550-hp Infiniti Q80 hybrid concept.
Now that the Lexus RC F is heading to dealerships, the Japanese automaker is working on a high-performance version of its GS luxury sedan.
The stylish RC F coupe was built to compete against the BMW M4 and the next addition to the Japanese automaker’s F lineup will be the GS F sedan, which will target the BMW M5 and Mercedes-AMG C63. The GS F takes styling cues from the RC F with a more pronounced front end, sportier wheels and larger brakes.
In the rear, expect a quad-tip exhaust setup and a subtle lip spoiler on the trunk while power will likely come from the same powerplant as the RC F, a 5.0-liter V8 with around 500 to 550 hp.

Given the way luxury car brands the world over have gravitated towards 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine options, it would only be common sense that Lexus' first-ever gas turbo should see applications beyond the NX, and ... [Read More]
In January 1989, the Detroit Auto Show, then a regional dealer event, morphed into the far larger and more significant North American International Auto Show. Among its numerous world debuts, three in particular stand out: the original Dodge Viper R/T 10 concept car and the launch of Nissan and Toyota's full-fledged luxury marques: Infiniti and Lexus. The latter saw its flagship LS 400 sedan go into production in May of that year, with U.S. sales beginning in September 1989, followed by limited exports to Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Curiously, these momentous occasions' 25th, or silver anniversary this year have seen only scant mentions and, to date, only one full-on commemorative edition vehicle. (In stark contrast, Mazda's MX-5 Miata roadster, another car first born in 1989, has unveiled its official 25th Anniversary Edition, for which the 100-car U.S. allocation - out of a total of 1000 to be built - sold out in 10 minutes).
So, which market gets the honors of unveiling Lexus' first 25th-anniversary vehicle? The United States, always the brand's primary and most popular market? Nope, we haven't yet heard a peep in this... [Read More]
