BMW has announced that they will be making a 100th Anniversary Edition M760i for 100 lucky people. The powerful luxury sedan is worth gawking over—the name is a whole other story. Coined the "BMW Individual M760i xDrive Model Excellence THE NEXT 100 YEARS," the car isn't fit for casual conversation. Plus, only five are coming to the US.

Volkswagen Auto Group headed back to federal court today to discuss their plan to compensate US diesel owners. It looks like VW might offer to buy back the defective vehicles.

Spy shots of the 2018 Audi S5 Cabriolet indicate some pretty significant cosmetic changes, as well as weight reduction thanks to the new MLB Evo platform. It's likely the S5 will still use the turbocharged 3.0L V-6 producing 354hp.

Gear

Motorcycle season is here. Down a motorcycle? Consider the sinister looking 2016 Harley Davidson Roadster. The 1200cc, vintage-looking roadster is the perfect summer cruiser for scaring some local wildlife.

Many bluetooth speakers do without adequate bass ranges. Fortunately, the Pavilion Speaker by Hult Designs sticks out from the crowd with a concrete bottom to reduce rattles, and copper coils to enhance the bass. It's not not all about that...

Lifestyle

Today’s beer pick takes us down to Saint Arnold’s Brewing Company in Houston, Texas. Proudly holding the title of oldest craft brewery in Texas, this small crew honors that title every day with great beers. Their new pilsner, the hoppy 5 O’Clock Pils, legitimizes its own drinking with a witty title.

A boardshort of adequate refinement and quality can transition from beach to (reasonable) dining establishment. (Throw the lesser ones in the bin.) The boys over at Saturdays Surf NYC have released the Grant Boardshorts, which definitely qualify.
