Rolls-Royce Dawn Wood Trim

2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn with Full Canadel Paneling option package

The 2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn we recently had through the Consumer Guide head office had a lengthy list of optional equipment that pushed its $341,125 base price all the way up to a bottom line of $413,030. We’ll do the math for you…that’s $71,905 in options alone—enough to buy a very nicely equipped 2017 BMW 5-Series sedan.

In 1953, the U.S. economy was robust. Bestowed with fresh styling, Plymouth set a record with almost 650,000 cars built while retaining its number-three sales position behind Chevrolet and Ford—as it had since 1931. Nineteen fifty-three was also Plymouth’s 25th anniversary, but it chose not to celebrate. Perhaps with Ford and Buick celebrating golden anniversaries that year, Plymouth felt like an upstart.

At first glance, the 2017 Range Rover Evoque convertible is an unlikely new offering from the British brand best known for classy sport-utility wagons that can go darn near anywhere. I must admit my early thoughts when hearing about the soft-top Evoque included visions of the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet—which answered a question no one was asking—and a colorfully worded version of “what are they thinking?”

New York Auto ShowIn the rarified world of hypercars, Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg has produced its share. Among them was the CCX, which in 2005 wrestled the long-held Guinness World Record of “fastest production car” from the McLaren F1, ending its nine-year reign. The company’s latest creation, the Agera RS1, hit the stage at the New York Auto Show.

Consumer Guide First Spin Recent buyers seeking an affordable sports car have often been forced to make a heart-wrenching choice: the open-air rush of a roadster, or the closed-roof security of a coupe.

But not any more.

The names “Corvette” and “Lingenfelter” have been closely related for a long time. It’s completely natural, then, that they’re paired up on the next few pages of this magazine.

The name Velie (pronounced vee-lee) might be written off as just another one of the more than 2000 American automobile makes that faded away in the early part of the twentieth century. However, there is more to the Velie story than one would expect. Velie was connected with John Deere farm implements and built cars, trucks, tractors, fire engines—even airplanes.
