Plug-in hybrid super sedan coming soon

Mercedes-Benz AMG is readying a new plug-in hybrid version of its GT 4-Door Coupe.

When the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Concept bowed in 2017 as a preview of the GT 4-Door Coupe, the striking show car packed a powerful electrified V-8 under the hood.

A debut will take place later this year and we should see the car reach showrooms as a 2022 model.

The Second Coming of the Austin Mini

From Road & Track” data-reactid=”23″From Road & Track

Don’t call it a comeback, as for some people the Mini never really went away. However, these days something particularly unique is happening with Mini culture. The age of the people involved is basically the same as in the 1960s.

You can thank Japan. While the Mini left the U.S. market some 50 years ago, the little icon has suddenly found itself big in Japan. A couple of years ago, I
