A Surprising Volkswagen

I must hand it to the designers of the all-new 2018 VW Atlas: It’s beautiful!

This left a market segment mostly alone and ignored for many years.   Read more

From the sporty aggressiveness of the BMW 850CSi, the imposing Mercedes S600 to the decadence of the Bentley Azure, yes there used to be plenty of choices, including one coupe that continually has stood apart since the 70’s and can only be described as pure “Britishness.” It’s none other than the Jaguar XJ coupe.
