Jaguar F-Type: Prestige Jaguar – Paramus, NJ

October 12th, 2012 by Stu

Say hello to Jaguar’s latest kitten, the F-Type. Based on a shortened version of the XK Convertible’s wheelbase, the sultry drop top [Coupe in ’14] sports a supercharged V6 [V8 optional], all-aluminium chassis, eight-speed automatic and embodies Jaguar’s late-to-the-party prizefighter against the likes of Boxster, Z4, SLK and TT. Blood lines to big brother XK certainly come through, but more interesting is the apparent influence from sister brand Land Rover’s new Evoque in some of the finer touches like light cluster design and ornamentation. Perhaps most unflattering is the  gaudy LEDs that are thick to the point of resembling neon bulbs. The deck lid and righteous tail pipe layouts [double barrel centered and double dual pipes] are perhaps the most pleasing design elements.

Our Man on the Street Jersey Jay caught this pre-production model on display at a local NJ dealer, just 1 month out from the vehicle’s global debut in Paris. Look for the F-type as 2014 model hitting dealers in 2013. It starts at $69k which seems like a lot until you hear that the XK Convertible starts at more than $90k.

Have a great weekend!

Audi/VW Winter Cruise – Piermont, NY

December 17th, 2009 by Stu

Audi/VW Drive - Rockland County

Who says you have to ride a HOG to travel in packs? Apparently not this group of VW/Audi enthusiasts who took their Quattro-powered sleds Winter joyriding during the season’s inaugural snowfall.  Well the GTI doesn’t have Quattro but who’s counting. The utterly dreary skies, slick road surfaces and fresh snowfall came together nicely to form the backdrop for this brigade of grey and white rides. Thanks for sharing Drew and much love to Deutschland.

Volvo C30 R-Design – Washington Street, NYC

September 4th, 2009 by Ian

Volvo C30 1

Volvo is not the boxy brand you may recall. In fact, their current fleet is full of pleasing, dare I say it, fashionable shapes. From broad shouldered sedans [S40/80] to curvaceous crossovers [XC60/90] and sultry sun devils [C70], Volvo’s modern day design language is athletic and easily recognizable across the whole range. Those sculpted noses and muscular shoulders from Sweden look particularly spicy on this little C30 we spotted on Washington Street. And despite its multitude of airbags and energy-absorbing impact structures, this funky looking coupe screams fun, not boring sensibility.

Audi A3 Sportback – 14th Street, NYC

June 10th, 2009 by Ian

 

audi-a31Everyone knows that Audi’s volume (eh hem..entry level) model in the U.S. is the A4, so we can’t really blame the boys from Ingolstadt for restricting the current A3 to two variations from an extensive lineup that consists of eight engines and two body styles (3/5 door) in Germany. But we are still fans of this slick little A3 Sportback

Audi TTS – W25th Street

February 25th, 2009 by Stu

audi-tts
Audi finally got around to offering a hotter “S” version of their TT sports car for the 2009 model year. It sits alongside sister Audi S-line vehicles like the S4/RS4, S6/RS6 and S8. Seen here in “Sprint Pearl Blue”, this TTS looks decidedly more exotic than its plebeian TT sibling thanks in part to the menacing ground effects, 19-inch seven-twin-spoke wheels, and slightly lowered ride height. The 265HP turbocharged engine under the hood doesn’t hurt either.
