Aston Martin’s 2013 DBS Coming, with 550 hp Aston Martin’s 2013 DBS Coming, with 550 hp
You cannot put 550 hp in a car without paying the closest attention to its other systems—in other words, steering, braking, handling, suspension, weight, etc. That is obvious, and that is why the 662-hp Mustang Shelby GT500 is a bad joke, even at its $55k price. The horsepower wars are typically...

Remember that theoretical Golf/Jetta CC four-door-coupe-type substance we reported on last month? Yeah, don’t get your hopes up. We’ve learned from European sources that while approval for the car still looks good—a final decision has yet to be made—it is highly unlikely that the car...
