The Transmission-Less Koenigsegg Regera Is the Most Certifiably Insane Road Car Ever

Oh, and did we mention it's a plug-in hybrid?

Now that the automotive industry has realized that hybrids can be just as much fun as regular, internal-combustion-only vehicles (so long as they're built the right way, that is), it seems that automakers are trying to stretch this technology to the absolute limit as quickly as humanly possible. The latest entry to this game of oneup-manship is the Koenigsegg Regera, a Swedish "megacar" that might just be the most ludicrous car ever built.

The 2015 Honda Civic Type R is America's Favorite Hot-Hatch Forbidden Fruit

Cross your fingers and pray that the engine makes it over here.

It's here. It's finally here. After years of anticipation and teaser images, the all-new Civic Type R has finally shown its face in public - at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, to be specific. As with previous Type Rs, the CTR looks to cement Honda's position as one of the best hot-hatch manufacturers on the planet, and it's got the numbers to prove it.

School Bus Safety Called Into Question With Bus Drivers Caught Speeding Through Red Lights

School buses still remain the safest mode of transport for kids.

Automated enforcement, otherwise known as the use of cameras to administer traffic violations, has been a topic of close scrutiny in states which permit its use. Now, these cameras have placed school bus drivers in the hot seat, with videos obtained by ABC 7 News showing local school bus drivers in Chicago counties blowing through red lights without ever attempting to slow down.

2010 vs 2015: The Swedish-Made Volvo XC70 T6 All-Wheel-Drive Then and Now

How has this crossover changed in five years?

What have the last five years done to our favorite rides? If you're in the market for a new vehicle, it might be prudent to take a look at some previous model years. We all know that cars depreciate as soon as they're driven off the lot, but how much do they depreciate after half-a-decade? Are there options you simply can't live without today, that weren't available five years ago?

Dodge Urges Dealers Not to Overpromise on Hellcat Ordering

Not every order will result in a car, despite what some might say.

To say that the Dodge SRT Hellcat twins are popular isn't really doing them justice. These 707-horsepower ├╝bermenschen have taken America (and beyond) by storm, and with a starting price under $70,000, they're the value proposition of the century. But once you factor in the brand's production capacity, that popularity comes with a downside - limited availability. And now FCA is finding itself in the middle of a debacle that's got dealers, customers, and corporate all in a tizzy.

Bang for Your Buck: 2015 Lexus NX 300h vs. the Used-Car Market

Checking out a new car's competition from the used-car market.

It's no surprise that buyers often compare both new and used cars. For a given price point, the market for potential cars explodes once you start looking away from new cars alone. Yes, you might give up the warranty, but if you're looking for something unique, used cars provide a good value ... provided you pick the right one. Bang for Your Buck takes a look at five used cars you could get with the money you'd spend on the new car we've tested recently.

The 2016 Acura RLX: AcuraWatch Comes to Honda's Flagship Luxury Sedan

A pricing freeze results in a better value than the year before.

This has been a busy year for Acura already. Honda's luxury brand has so far released two new vehicles - the 2016 ILX and the 2015 TLX - and it just announced another, the RDX crossover, at this year's Chicago Auto Show. Clearly, Acura's got plenty to do in 2015, but that doesn't mean it's going to ignore its existing stable of vehicles, like the full-size RLX. In fact, for 2016, the RLX is a better value than it's ever been.

Bentley's Spring Collection Is Subtle, Pretty, and Unsurprisingly Expensive

If you're looking for a leather jacket, you may as well go all out.

Bentley is no stranger to leveraging its brand equity in non-automotive arenas. In the past, the luxury automaker has affixed its name to all manner of luxurious items, including home furniture and cufflinks. You can find it all on the Bentley Collection website, and starting in the next couple weeks, you'll be able to pick from additional egregiously expensive accoutrements, because the Spring Collection is just about to drop.

Ford Mobility Project Looks Beyond Automobiles at Mobile World Congress

Automaker studying the effect e-bikes can have on easing commutes.

It may seem odd for an automaker to be encouraging research into bicycles and how they can help ease traffic congestion, but that's what Ford was doing at the latest Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain recently. At the conference, Ford expanded its Ford Mobility program, which is "the company's plan

Audi's 2016 R8 Is a Sleek, Sharp Supercar That's Available as an EV

Bringing the latest family face to Audi's most powerful road car.

The Lamborghini Huracan was unveiled in 2014, and since the outgoing Gallardo shared its platform with the first-generation Audi R8 (Lamborghini is part of Volkswagen AG, if you didn't know), most assumed that Audi would release a second-generation R8 shortly after the Huracan dropped. Well, it took a few months, but Audi is finally ready to pull back the veil on its all-new R8, and boy, does it look the business.

Watch These 5 Videos to Find Out How Toyota Builds Its Hydrogen Car

Sometimes, the engineering is as exciting as the car itself.

Sure, we all kind of know how a car is built. It starts out life in an assembly plant, some witchcraft happens, and then a fully-built car rolls off the line. It's not terribly often that we get to catch a glimpse into the long process of actually assembling a vehicle. Toyota's over the moon about its new hydrogen-powered Mirai, so the automaker is bringing us inside the plant for a virtual glimpse into how its all-new fuel cell car is built.

Silvercar is the Smartest Car-Rental Service Ever

Combines the ease of Uber and the simplicity of Zip Cars

Nobody likes renting a car. It's one of those guaranteed hassles that always ends up taking longer and costing more than planned. As if having to wait in line wasn't bad enough, there's the inevitable dilemma of which car you'll settle for since the one you "reserved" (a word that has a paradoxical meaning at all rental counters for some reason) is unavailable. Well rental car companies may soon go the way of taxi cabs if car rental services like Silvercar catch on, which they certainly should.

The 666-Horsepower McLaren 675LT Resurrects a Historic Name

Although its tail isn't really that "LONG," so to speak.

As we creep closer and closer to the Geneva Motor Show, more and more automakers are jumping the gun and dropping tons of information about their upcoming models. One of the more prominent early-releasers is McLaren, which has already given out plenty of details on its upcoming P1 GTR hypercar. Now, the brand is introducing something a bit more subdued, if you could call something with 666 horsepower subdued.
