Sportiness is no Ghostly Apparition with the Wraith


2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith

Rolls-Royce is one of the most famous automakers in the world. This storied British brand is best known for building obscenely lavish cars, motoring vehicles that scream “expensive,” but in a well-mannered, genteel way.

2014-Rolls-Royce-Wraith-05.jpgModels like the Ghost sedan and Phantom flagship practically define the luxury segment. They’re decked out with features and materials not found in lesser vehicles, even from premium brands. But traditionally Rollers are all about comfort; “waftability” is something engineered right into these models from day one. They’re designed to transport passengers in total comfort and serenity.

In the past if you wanted a sporty luxury car you’d have to shop somewhere else. The folks at Mercedes-Benz would happily sell you an AMG-amplified model, or BMW would gladly entice you with their M cars. But sporty and Rolls-Royce were mutually exclusive, until now.

Dear OEMS, Please Build These


audi sport quattro concept

Concept cars are things that dreams are made of. These vehicles represent a manufacturer’s future, seen through LSD-laced rose colored glasses.

They are utopian automobiles for a world free of conservatism and convention. For better or worse, most will never see the light of day as a production model, but usually a few elements (and hopefully many) will find their way into future cars.

2013 has been another busy year for concept cars with manufacturers worldwide showcasing the best (and worst) new ideas within the automotive world. Sometimes these designs fail to resonate with the public; remember the Volkswagen CrossBlue Concept? Not to worry, no one else does either.

But for every lackluster concept, there seems to be at least two that capture our attention, like the Audi Quattro Concept shown above. Here are the ten best concepts of 2013.
