Recently, my family and I did a week-long road trip from South Florida to Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC. I requested a large SUV or mini-van from the press fleet company and they graciously came up with a 2016 Dodge Durango R/T SUV for our use. This particular well optioned example came in a metallic silver finish, black wheels and a sumptuous fully optioned red leather interior.

Funny how perception creeps up on us and lingers. Until recently, one mentioned Buick and the typical answer was; my grandparents drove one. Sure, at one point this was synonymous with the brand, but no more. Buick is on an aggressive mission to change this perception and to introduce the brand to people that have never even considered it in the past. How?

A Pleasant Unexpected Surprise

When I received a call from the press fleet company giving me the news that I would be getting the new Mini Clubman for the week I really didn’t think it would be anything special. Being a sports car type of guy, I naturally wanted the higher power and sporty “S” version but no, I got the regular non-turbo standard model. Oh boy, or so I thought. Immediately after the call, I started to wonder if this newest version of the Clubman still had the unique Mini DNA, would it be fun to drive? Would it feel like a Mini? Read on and find out.

Miami has several high-end luxury car dealers, with Braman Motors being one of the oldest and best known in South Florida. When I received an exclusive invite to preview the all new Bentley Bentayga luxury SUV I could not say no.

In 15-20 years we are going to look back and realize this IS the golden age of the automobile again. We see it in almost every new model sold in the US right now, of course, more so in the high-end cars such as the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG super sedan. The styling, the jaw-dropping performance and luxury, all work in harmony to make the perfect super sedan.


Alfa Romeo, It’s Back!

My first mile in the all new 4C was a bit shocking! It is low, tight, rough around the edges and difficult to get in and out of, not to mention, the visibility out the back is mostly theoretical. I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to drive this car for a week. As it turns out, I was premature to think that a few days later. Sure, all of the items mentioned continued to be true, but by the end of the seven days, I didn’t want to give the 4C back! This is the perfect toy for a car enthusiast. It’s nimble, fast, direct, connected and very much in your face!

Smooth, quiet and familiar. This could be the description of your favorite easy chair or a convertible that quietly does everything well without creating undue attention. The 2015 IS350 C fits that description perfectly.

Mention the letters AMG to any car enthusiast and vivid images of high-powered sporty Mercedes-Benz automobiles immediately come to mind. Thus when I received the weekly call as to what I would be driving for the week, I immediately had an ear-to-ear grin on my face when I heard the sweet words “AMG S63 Coupe” ….Wow!

Welcome back Ferrari Challenge to the Homestead-Miami Speedway

IMG_2550Welcome back Ferrari Challenge to the Homestead-Miami Speedway. After Skipping Miami altogether in 2014 and changing to a hot and typically rainy late summer schedule in 2013, the event is back in the right date, glorious cool-weather March. Although some unseasonably windy and rainy weather hovered around South Florida the entire March 7-8 weekend. Ferrari does a great job mixing racing and lifestyle by getting its dealers and their clients actively involved. On the morning of Saturday, there was a swanky breakfast Hosted at The Collection in Coral Gables, followed by a caravan of over 50 cars driving directly to the track. The North America schedule consists of the season opener in January in Daytona followed by Homestead/Miami, Sonoma, Montreal, Mosport, Mont Tremblant, and the season finale, in late October in Laguna Seca, California.

Driving one of the most beautiful Automobiles of 2015

Like most teens in the 80’s, I had a poster of the Lamborghini Countach super-car on my bedroom wall and spent countless hours dreaming about how it would be to drive one of these exotics. This opportunity came years later, but not with a Countach. It was in the all-new Huracán, which, hands down, is one of the most beautiful cars designed so far in the 21st century.

Iconic cars can be tricky in their evolution for manufacturers. Take for example Porsche with their 1st non-air cooled 911 back in 1999 or Mercedes-Benz with their current generation SL, which turned out to be nice to drive, but not so good to look at.
