Auto:(Video) It Must Be Nice To Be James Bond

Turns out sometimes James Bond only has to work for 007 seconds. Daniel Craig, who played James Bond in the most recent Bond movie made an apperance at the New York Auto Show last week. He was there on behalf of Land Rover to show off the new 2014 Range Rover. All he had to do was drive the Range out onto the stage, step out and waive hello and walk off. Literally a total of 7 seconds. For those 7 seconds of his life he was paid $1 million dollars!! That breaks down to about $143,000 per second. What a life! Check out all the work he had to do after the jump.

Auto:(Video) Subaru WRX Concept Premieres At NY Auto Show With A Nice Look

This would be the type of car Styles P was talking about in his verse on the Rick Ross song “BMF”. “Buggin out, fish tailing, Subaru rally car”. Well he would have a ball with this. I am usually not into the smaller import cars but I can’t deny this Subaru WRX concept looks hot. The body of the car flows and the way it was designed was very smart. The study adopts a body style that most carmakers like to call a “four-door coupe”, adorned with all the aggressive details one would expect from a WRX model (with a hint of Lancer EVO, some might say) like the powerbulge on the hood, muscular wheel arches that make room for the 20-inch forged alloy wheels wrapped in 245/40ZR20 Dunlop rubber and a prominent rear diffuser. Only now, all these elements look natural and not planted like on the Impreza models. Subaru said that the pronounced powerbulge “provides clearance for the new turbocharged engine and intercooler”, but other than that, it provided no other details about the WRX’s powertrain. Check the car out in action in the video after the jump.

Auto:(Photos) WTF?? This Car Was Named Car Of The Year For 2013.. Really??

And the envelope please..(drum roll please)…The winner of the 2013 car of the year award is………..The Volkswagen Golf…huh?? Yes ladies and gentlemen you heard me right. The newest version of the VW Golf walked away with the award today at the New York Auto Show. Now let me be clear, there are a few different categories for the award. For example, the Golf was not going head to head with any luxury cars like a Porsche or Ferrari, or even certain BMW’s and Mercedes. They were in a different category for best “Performance” car of the year. But even still, how many people would take a Ford, Nissan, Honda, or even some of the Luxury cars that were in the category such as a Lexus or Acura etc instead of a VW Golf. The criteria for the award wasn’t really discussed, so who knows how these voters came to the conclusion that they did. For the performance car of the year, the Porsche Boxter and Cayman split the award. Check out some of the pics of the new Golf in the gallery after the jump.

NY Auto Show:(Videos) The Chevy Camaro Z-28 Is Back!

If you love the newer versions of the Chevy Camaro, then you will love the Z-28 even more. The new ride debuted today at the New York Auto Show and it was definitely a show stopper. Powered by Chevrolet’s 7.0-liter LS7 small block V8, which is also found in the C6 Corvette, the 2014 Camaro Z/28 looks to offer track performance above and beyond the already capable 1LE. Chevy hasn’t released official power ratings yet, saying only that the Z/28 will deliver “at least 500 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque” – the supercharged 6.2-liter LSA found in the ZL1 dispenses 580 horsepower, so the track-focused Z/28 probably won’t be the most powerful Camaro on offer. But at this point we really do not know. This version is much lighter, so it might make up for any difference in speed and horsepower. Pricing is not available yet, but I know Camaro lovers will be lining up. Check out the official debut in the video after the jump.

NY Auto Show:(Video) 2014 SRT Viper TA…MEAN!!

Only one word describes this car. As the boss man Funk Flex would say…MEAN! The 2014 SRT Viper TA was unveiled today at the NY Auto Show, and is a barely street legal version of the already powerful SRT Viper. The car was made to attack any racetrack, but still be able to break necks around the neighborhood as well. Only 33 of these will be made this year, so it is going to be super exclusive and it looks like all 33 will get the same eye popping orange paint job with the all black wheels. Changes from the regular SRT Viper include a revised two-mode Bilstein suspension that is firmer than the standard Viper GTS to begin with. It has a “smaller spread between the modes,” suggesting that even though the car is road-legal, it’s likely to be a pretty extreme ride. Asis the case with “lesser” Vipers, the TA relies on the 8.4-liter V10 to churn out 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. Check out the car in action in the video after the jump.

NY Auto Show:(Photos) 2014 New Jeep Cherokee

The New York auto show kicked off today at the Jacob Javitz Center, with many new highly anticipated official debut’s expected. One debut was that of the all new 2014 Cherokee. This is still a popular vehicle with the younger generation, and it is about time this jeep got a new look. Although, depending who you ask, the new look might of been better if they waited. I don’t like how the front of the SUV looks, it looks like a sour face, but then again, I do not plan on buying one so who really cares what I think. The all-new 2014 Cherokee rides atop a modular Alfa Romeo-derived platform and will be offered in both front and all-wheel drive models with a choice between a 2.4-liter four-cylinder (rated at 184 horsepower) and a new 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 (developing 271 horsepower) engine. A nine-speed automatic is standard and no less than three different all-wheel drive systems are available. Check out the pics in the gallery after the jump.
