This is the New Transformer 4’s 2014 Camaro Bumblebee Concept (Official)

The previously showed 1967 Camaro-based Bumblebee car will likely be used as an entry in the film before the so-called 2014 Concept Camaro Bumblebee steps in to take the first role.

Just as there’s no question that GM will use the placement of the Camaro in the movie to launch a Transformers edition of the car onto the market (as it did with the previous films), there’s also no doubt that it will look different than this concept that comes with a newly designed face, different than the one we saw on the facelifted model.

2013 BMW 750Li vs 2013 Jaguar XJL Supercharged! [Head 2 Head Episode 35]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman gets behind the wheel of two of the finest long wheelbase luxury sedans - the 2013 BMW 750Li and the Jaguar XJL Supercharged - to see which one of them does justice to their $100,000 plus price tags.

First, Jonny heads to the track to see what kinds of numbers these large, premium sedans put down, then he sees how they both handle on the rough roads outside of Santa Barbara, before finally getting chauffered in the back seat of the cars to examine their distinct approaches to high-end luxury.

So which one will stand out as the best in its class? Stay tuned to find out.

2013 Audi S4 AWD vs 2013 Volvo S60 T6 AWD R-Design! [Head 2 Head Episode 34]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman pits the 2013 Volvo S60 T6 AWD R-Design against returning contender, the 2013 Audi S4.

Before hitting the road, the engine placements of both competing sedans are compared against segment contemporaries such the Cadillac ATS & BMW’s 335i. Why? Because while both competitors are AWD, they start life as FWD. As a result, both vehicles have unusual engine placements.

A mix of limit testing & canyon carving follows as Jonny provides insight on both cars, examining everything from driving impressions to interior ergonomics.

Does Volvo’s beefed up S60 have what it takes to dethrone Audi’s “sleeper sedan?”

Jaguar F-Type V8S vs Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster vs Porsche 911 Carrera S Convertible [Chris Harris On Cars]

490hp, small, very pretty: is that enough to make the fastest F-Type a 911 rival? And would an Aston do the job of a Brit roadster better? This video might expand on some of these points.

New Porsche 991 GT3. First Drive. [Chris Harris On Cars]

If we were a car magazine we’d call this a WORLD EXCLUSIVE, but we’re not, so we won’t. Let’s just say we got very early access to the car everyone wants to know about. And it was very, very good. Volume to 11 please.

Marco Mattiacci (Ferrari North America CEO): “Mexico is the New China”

According to Mattiacci, the massive growth anticipated in revenue and manufacturing is not necessarily due to Ferrari, but more to the expansion of the auto industry in the last 13 years because of dramatic wealth creation, increased appetite for industry and important investments from abroad.

The Ferrari North America CEO said he was astounded by Mexico demand for the LaFerrari, the brand’s most exclusive model that will be built in a limited edition of 499 units.

“When we launched the new LaFerrari we are positively surprised that sadly we now have on-hand a list of 15 millionaires and billionaires who want to request that car,” Mattiacci said. As you probably know, the entire production of LaFerrari was sold out long before the car was revealed. “I can tell you that in 2003 when we launched Enzo in Mexico was not having that kind of request. That’s a big indicator,” he added.
