Stripped down can be damn sexy. In a single sentence, that’s how the new Star Bolt and Bolt R-Spec entries into the bobber motorcycle niche feel, and are hoping you will, too. Yamaha (Star’s parent company) intends this bike to be a no-frills city hopper and commuter. Does it succeed? We recently had the opportunity for some quality ride time on both of these bikes to find out. [See & Read More]

This isn't your normal mid-model refresh. The 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo ($148,000 and up) is an all-new model, and as such, it's packing some new goodies. Features like a new all-wheel-drive system, active rear axle steering, adaptive aerodynamics, an entirely new, longer chassis, 20-inch wheels, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control active anti-roll system, and full-LED headlights. It hasn't lost its edge, either, boasting a turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that pumps out 520hp in the standard model and 560hp in the S model, paired with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission that gets you from 0-60 in as little as 2.9 seconds and to a top speed of nearly 200 mph. They'll be rolling off the boats from Germany just in time for the holidays — so here's to hoping you have a very, very generous gift-giver on your list. Enjoy.

With the hashtag #ibechoppinshitlikejetli, Chief Keef was back on point in his stunt game, posting photos of an Audi R8 GT Spyder, which has a starting MSRP of $210,300. Whether or not he owns the car, we're just not going to guess, because we honestly have no idea. He's been seen with Rolls-Royces, Ferraris, and Bentleys, so maybe he's actually netted a chunk of change over the past two years. Just for some context, the regular Audi R8 Spyder starts at $127,700. The GT's 5.2L V10 engine has 560hp, 130 more than the regular Spyder, and sports a carbon fiber rear wing and a carbon fiber diffusor that really sets it off. [See More]

Another classy number from the German motoring giants. The Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG boasts a 2 liter turbo charged engine capable of generating 360 hp that will do nought to 60 in 4.5 seconds, tailing off at 155 mph. A sporty five door hatchback, it incorporates the A-Class' suspension and steering systems and funky black wheels with contrasting red brake calipers. Kudos Mercedes. Again.

Our friend Corey Shapiro, stylist to the hip hop stars and the man in charge at the Vintage Frames Company, shares some morning inspiration from the wheel of his Gucci Cadillac for those in need. "Passengers are riders. They enjoy riding a wave, being part of a movement, but rarely take control of their wheel," states Shapiro. Take this in above, you’ll be glad you did. Enjoy.

Been kicking yourself ever since you missed out on the chance to own a brand new Enzo? Here's your chance to make up for it. The awkwardly-named Ferrari LaFerrari ($TBA) is the company's new limited-series flagship, offering F1-level technology in a stunning road-legal package. Apart from the unique, instant-classic looks, it features a new HY-KERS drivetrain system that pairs a 789hp, 6.3L V12 to a 160hp electric motor and a 7-speed DCT gearbox for a total of 949hp, a 0-62 time of under three seconds, a 0-124 time of under seven seconds, and a top speed of 205 mph.

Don't get us wrong, the Ferrari F12berlinetta is a beautiful car. This DMC custom is already possibly the sexiest custom we'll see in 2013. But, as was pointed out when the car first launched, the back of the car looks a bit like a uterus. This similarity remains no matter what color it is, even in matte gray. It's just one of those images we can't get out of our heads. Other than that like matte Ferrari is amazing, see more shots after the jump. [See More]

In a pile of e-bikes that can be seen on offer these days, the M-1 ebike from Marrs Cycles certainly stands out. Its design is less about proper, compact bicycle chic as it is being a hot-rod inspired beast. Described as eager to be the Harley of e-bikes, the M-1 has every right to claim that name!The company was founded by Kacy Marrs, whose influences come from a long history of riding bikes from bmx and motocross to Harleys. His business partner, Brad Fanshaw, formerly ran a company that built one-of-a-kind hot rods. [See & Read More]

America’s off-road specialist Jeep has unveiled the first photos of the 2014 Cherokee – resurrecting one of its most famous model names with plenty of new bells and whistles to meet modern demand. Sporting a more streamlined and futuristic look than its boxier predecessor, the Cherokee is built on the same platform as the Dodge Dart compact. Automotive News has previously reported that the Cherokee would be powered by a 3.2-liter V6 engine based on Chrysler’s 3.6-liter Pentastar engine, as well as an all-new nine-speed front-wheel-drive automatic transmission designed by ZF Friedrichshafen. The automaker released few other details but consumers can expect the Cherokee arriving in dealerships in the third quarter.

Thanks to the lovely affects that aging has on our hair, gray is usually associated with being dull, older, weaker. Not so, in this case. Mode Carbon's matte seal gray on this Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series makes it look younger, more fierce and ready to attack any car that pulls up next to it. The aggressive look also comes from Mode's addition of carbon fiber mirrors, a diffuser, and a trunk spoiler. Ace. [See More]
