We regret to inform you that the Golf R 400 has been called off. While the world would doubtlessly be a better place with a 400hp monster Golf, it's not to be. The VW Group will definitely produce a 400+ horsepower 2.0L—just don’t expect to see it under the hood of a Volkswagen.

Mercedes-Benz has been hard at work testing out the new SL and SLC platform, called Modular Sports Car Architecture. The new, adaptable chassis will allow Mercedes to cut costs and promote sharable tech between cars.

Mitsubishi has been falsifying fuel economy reports and unlike Volkswagen's shorter con, the company has been doing it for 25 years.

Gear

Are you a landlocked bro looking to catch that endless wave? Stop letting the lack of water harsh your mellow and grab a Ripsurf Complete Caster Board from Razor. Based off the undulating RipStik middle-schoolers are obsessed with, the bigger board will provide chill, surf-like motions to any sidewalk you happen across.

The Boomstick is an adapter that attaches to your listening device and improves sound quality, even on the chintziest ear buds. You may never get that Beats bass or Bose quiet, but every little bit helps.

Lifestyle

Today’s beer pick takes us to Avery Brewing Company in Boulder, Colorado. This craft brewery has been a Colorado powerhouse since it started in 1993 and led the charge for craft breweries around the Rocky Mountains. We recommend you try their Maharaja, an Imperial IPA.

Even spring nights get cold. The Penfield Kenai fleece is perfect for when the campfire embers have died down, but you're still halfway through a quality, fireside chat. No
