Infiniti QX Inspiration: The Potential of Empty Spaces & The Art of Origami

The QX Inspiration is Infiniti’s foray into the EV market. It has a pair of electric motors and an electric all-wheel drive system. The coach doors, cab-forward design, and other styling elements are inspired by Japanese culture. It’s hard to describe the Infiniti QX Inspiration Concept. After all, we’re talking about a concept car here. From the looks of it, the QX is a small and compact SUV on steroids. However, it does give the Lamborghini Urus and Maserati Levante a serious run for cash in...

Review: 2019 VW Jetta

It’s no small secret that Americans and Europeans have their differences, and one needn’t look any further to illustrate that point than to look at what kind of cars we like to drive. The 1970’s fuel crisis made a great argument for the hatchback-the idea being to get the maximum amount of room possible for people and cargo on a relatively small footprint. VW’s Golf was a raging success and proved the formula worked, and it was what a lot of people wanted. Well, almost everyone. For whateve...

Bye, Bye, Buick: A German-American Convertible Prepares to Exit the Stage

Everyone knew this was coming, but now it’s official. The current model year will be the Buick Cascada’s last. Hitting dealer (and rental) lots in the U.S. at the dawn of 2016, the Opel-built drop top motivated its two-ton weight with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder — an engine that gave away the model’s European heritage.

It’s A Keeper: A K series built for a footballing legend

When one of Spain’s most legendary goalkeepers wanted a hot steed based on a BMW K series ‘brick,’ he knew just the team to call: Bolt Motor Co. of Valencia. Andrés Palop, known for his penalty-stopping prowess at Sevilla FC, approached Bolt boss Adrián Campos with a simple brief for a custom build; clean lines, a bit of a dark feeling, and some red touches. Adrián and his team are known for their ability to produce clinically clean customs from unlikely platforms. This time they chose a 1...

AGV K5 S Helmet Hands-On Review

Introduction I have handled a good variety of motorcycle helmets since I started riding in the early ’90s. I’m therefore a bit surprised to realize I’d never owned or tested a helmet from AGV. As part of my review process, I always read up on the manufacturer, even if I’m pretty familiar with them, in case there is some interesting fact I can bring to light. Checking out the story behind AGV had me realizing how little I actually knew about this company. For instance, AGV founded in 1947 and th...

Aerostich Women’s R-3 One Piece Suit Review

A Pleasant Suitprise Looking for the Right One I love trying out new gear and this was the first taste of riding suits for me with a long term hands-on test, so I will admit to being pretty excited. But as I looked at the website, my excitement began to wain as I discovered that I was a bit confused about what to order. There is always a level of uncertainty when placing an order for an item without trying it on or having a great frame of reference, and with a price tag of over a grand, I wan...
