Experience the Mercedes-Benz Autonomous Vehicle: The F 015

On a pre-programmed course in an old airfield in Alameda, Calif., a silverfish-shaped car meanders through a cardboard city full of frozen people and cut-out trees. Here at the edge of Silicon Valley, looking back across the bay at the San Francisco skyline and just minutes from Mercedes-Benz’s Research facility in Sunnyvale, the F 015…

The more “affordable” Aston Martin

If you’re anything like me — then you understand the unmistakable draw of Aston Martins. But, when you find out just how much they cost–well–then you realize that there’s just no way to ever afford one. Even if you mortgaged your house. That is–until now. Meet the Aston Martin GT. I got a chance to…

Driving a 651hp Ferrari FF on Ice

Driving a 651hp all-wheel drive super car is one thing…driving a car with that kind of power on an ice track is a whole other ball game. It was a blast–and an awesome learning experience. And P.S. I wasn’t the one that put it into the snowbank. Check out the finished product on CNNMoney here….

The almost-perfect supercar–The McLaren 12C Spyder

A few months ago I had the opportunity to spend an entire weekend behind the wheel of one of the most magnificent machines I have ever driven–the McLaren 12C Spyder. It was simply mind blowing–well all except for a couple of little gremlin-y things–like the part where it leaked oil all over my driveway overnight–or…

The Rolls Royce Wraith: Fast, Gorgeous and Fun

I’d never been behind the wheel of a Rolls Royce before–let alone one of the fastest and smallest on the market today–but for one weekend I spent time driving and enjoying this beautiful machine. I even took it out in a little snowstorm. Click here to see my piece on the Wraith or watch below…

Learning to drive a NYC Taxi

So. I don’t have a HACK license, but for one day I got to pretend to be an NYC taxi driver. It was hands down one of the most stressful, exciting, and terrifying jobs of all time. (You try keeping customers who think you are a real cab at bay!) Check out the video below…

The more affordable Maserati

Ever wanted to own a Maserati but thought that it was just too far out of your price range? Well think again–the new Ghibli starts at around $65,000 and gives you all the Maserati feel and sound you could want. Check it out here or watch below.  

Audi RS5 Cabriolet: Top-down speed and style

I have to admit. I really fell in love with this car. The Audi RS5 had an awesome throaty growl, room enough for 4 adults and enough power to put a smile on my face. I still think about it. Check out the link here. Or watch below.

The Range Rover Sport–Rugged, refined luxury

You may see Range Rover Sports coming and going as you tote your kids, dogs and groceries around town–but did you know–they actually easily take on a small stream or climb a slippery dusty hill? I had a blast driving this luxury SUV off-road and on through the canyons of Northern California. Check out the…

Sometimes it’s fun to be driven: The 200-mph Bentley Flying Spur

All right, all right, so it’s not always me behind the wheel. Sometimes, I like to be driven. When I do, however, I prefer it to be in the backseat of one of the most luxurious (and fast!) sedans out there. Meet me in the backseat of the 200-mph Bentley Flying Spur….

The New Jeep Cherokee: Great drive, eh looks

When Jeep first announced their new Jeep Cherokee at the 2013 New York Auto Show, the reception its design received was….well….to put it lightly…a bit mixed. Jeep purists complained about the bent grill and the “squinting” headlights and Chryslers seeming disregard for the old-school boxy looks that personified the compact SUVs of the 90s. While…
