With more in common with a racecar than a consumer car, the SLS AMG Black Series is a gorgeous hunk of German steel that can turn the most mundane driver into a track-taming dynamo. Priced at $275,000, though, you’ll pay dearly for the privilege.
BMW has finally, after short last, released the full, final production specs, pictures, and pricing for the 2014 2 Series. While we don’t love its looks, we definitely love its power and promise of performance.
