Morgan Aero Supersports

It's satisfying when the owner of your favorite car company and you are on a first-name basis, and not just because you work at R& T. (in fact, I knew Charles's father Peter Morgan as well.) It's especially cool that the owner of this 101-year-old car company has a vision for its future. Charles sees the Aero as a Morgan designed for and fabricated in light of the 21st century. True, there's still an ash superstructure in the cockpit area but this isn't blind tradition, it's because wood is...

Throughout history, it's not as if Toyota's portfolio has been completely devoid of exciting cars. The 2000GT of the late '60s was a highly desirable Japanese answer to the Jaguar E-Type. The last-iteration twin-turbo Supra was a muscle-packed bouncer from the Far East sent to rough up the Corvette of its day. More recently, the 416-bhp Lexus IS F kicked a little sand in the BMW M3's face. But never has Toyota (and by association, its upmarket Lexus division) possessed clangers large enough to...

Spoon Ef9 Parts

Tatsuru Ichishima, president of Spoon Sports, calls the CR-Z the new image car for Honda, effectively blending spottiness with economy while being gentle on the environment. That said, when asked if he could be content with a sporty car that ran to 60 mph in over 10 sec., he smiled and ever-so-slightiy shook his head. Now we know why the Spoon Sports CR-Z was created. This new Spoon creation closely follows Ichishima's philosophy on car tuning. Instead of just throwing on a turbo-charger and...

Hyundai Sonata Se

The SE, the sportiest Sonata currently available, benefits from a sport suspension with stickier tires, 18-in. alloy wheels, a 20-percent increase in roll stiffness and two extra horsepower, thanks to a dual exhaust. What's more, the 200-bhp SE has paddle shifters, although the 6-speed automatic doesn't benefit from rev-match downshifts. Nevertheless, this new slightly larger Sonata is a strong effort, attracting attention with its sculptcd body lines and excellent 35-mpg highway fuel economy....

A far ery from a diesel sports car or even one of those rare diesel SUVs capable of towing a small city up a 30-percent grade, the TDI came armed with 140 blip and raw resolve in an attempt to appease our lust for motoring entertainment. You might say it had its work cut out for it. Now, 45,000...

The body shape, designed by engineers, had remained fresh and original through several generations. Its history, how it was built as a statement by Mercedes to show that the company was rising from the ashes of the war, demanded respect. I asked Bob Akin to do a modest restoration, and he in turn took some of the vitals to Paul Russell, the best 300 SL restorer in the business. So the SL visited the Fountain ofYouth and came back looking much the same but acting with an assurance I...
