Can a Japanese defeat a Korean visiting an American, and all of them together defeat a Mercedes-Benz S-Klasse?

The new LS is an order of magnitude better than its predecessor. However, the test revealed three shortcomings that left Lexus with exactly the gap that the Genesis G90 slipped through.

Special Purpose Fidget Spinner: Blade Runner Transport

Special Purpose Fidget Spinner: Blade Runner Transport

90s disco: fresh Jeep Grand One concept based on 1993 car

This is not an April Fool's joke. “Drawing from the heritage of the brand” is an idea that over the past 20 years has become pretty boring for enthusiasts, although it generates a lot of interesting production cars from VW Beetle to Ford GT, not to mention literally hundreds of concepts.
