Last year, the Volkswagen Passat celebrated its 50th birthday. In 1973, VW’s mid-sized family car launched as part of Wolfburg’s all-new front-engined, front-wheel drive, post-Beetle generation. The Giugiaro-designed Passat was initially available as a two- or four-door sedan, or three- or five-door fastback. A year later, a Passat wagon joined the line-up. Fast-forward five decades, and over 34 million Passats have been sold globally. Throughout its life, the Passat has been manufactured in several locations across the globe from Germany and Slovakia, to the United States, China, and Brazil ..read more

When we talk about ULEZ (stands for Ultra Low Emission Zone), a big question pops up for people who own classic cars.

This guide will explain how these classic vehicles fit into the modern rules aimed at reducing air pollution. What Qualifies as a Classic Car?

Diamonds In The Rough: Greatest American cars of the 1980s and 1990s

The late 20th century isn’t something American car manufacturers like to reminisce about. It is a bit of a taboo for pretty much all of them, just like the ever so secretive period from 1933 to 1945 for many German companies. Since the peak of American design and innovation of the post war period and the 1960s, a lot had changed in the 80s and 90s. The ingenuity, trend-setting designs and V8 rumble were replaced by lackluster technology, engine and bodyshell downsizing, rushed product planning and poor attempts to catch up with the Germans and Japanese. There were however attempts to better th ..read more

Our meeting ran over a bit,” says Kalle Rovanperä as he grabs a chair to sit down for this interview ahead of the upcoming Rally Kenya. His accent is heavily accented Finnish - all rolled r’s and prominent up-and-down intonation. It leaves no doubts as to where he’s from.

Rivian has recently unveiled its new midsize platform, underpinning the medium sized R2 SUV and R3 crossover product lines. The R2 isn’t that significant, as it looks like 3/4 version of the R1S, which has been out for quite some time now and is a very logical addition to the line up. But the R3 hits differently. It is no major invention – smaller (by today's standards) electric crossovers from up-scale brands do exist, such as the Genesis GV60, Volvo C40 Recharge and Hyundai Ioniq 5 (Yes Hyundai, I will gladly accept your money for calling you up-scale), but the R3 stands out form all of them ..read more

Automobile designers are similar to musicians in a way: when you hear about them, it always turns out that they used to play in another group. Giorgetto Giugiaro’s career played out similarly – by the time the world found out about him, the designer had already carried out a number of amazing projects with various studios. He is referred to as the designer who had the greatest influence on the modern automotive industry, and a variety of different vehicles – from ordinary hatchbacks to exclusive supercars – were produced according to his visions.

The iconic VW Beetle and the beloved VW T1 “love bug” are well-known, but the VW Karmann Ghia stands out as an even more stylish variant.
