You know we loved the V6 Accord Coupe with the 6-speed manual. But what if you want a four-door? Well, in that case you are indeed stuck with the automatic. So will your life then suck? Not too terribly, it turns out. Honda's 9th-gen Accord, just rolled out for the 2013 model year, manages to be pretty aweseome even with the slushbox. Continue reading...

I remember sitting in the Dodge trailer with Ralph Gilles at Daytona back in 2011 and telling him that the thing that would make enthusiasts buy Challengers in large numbers would be a stripped-down version with a Hemi and a track pack and pretty much nothing else. Looks like my prayers have been answered! The Redline package, which up until now was only offered on V6 Challengers, is now available on the 5.7L-equipped R/T models. You start with the most basic Hemi Challenger and add a track-tuned suspension, 20" wheels and lower ride height. There's also some red exterior accents, but nothing too garish. I asked for it, so I guess now I have to go buy one! The Redline R/T Challenger is available for order now and will be hitting showrooms in April. More pics below the jump, via Chrysler.

Ever wonder what happens to a car during its stay in a self-serve wrecking yard? Where does it come from? How long does it take to get picked clean? What happens at the end? TTAC's Murilee Martin has done this really cool cradle-to-the-grave photodocumentary following two reasonably serviceable cars, a Camry and a Civic Si, from their purchase by a Denver U-Pull-It yard to their date with the crusher. It's actually pretty riveting, and there's some cool video. See the whole thing at The Truth About Cars.

It had to happen sooner or later. But this soon? John Coyle posted on Corvette Forum that the wreck occurred in Arizona and a GM test driver was the most likely culprit. According to the photographer, the C7 bounced off a left-side guardrail and then went into the weeds on the outside shoulder. Nice going. From DigitalCorvettes, via Corvette Forum.

My friend was trying to convince me to get a Subaru XT6 yesterday, and I wasn't having any of it until he showed me this pic of the cockpit. Seriously, what's not to love about an asymmetrical steering wheel? And that digital dash display reminds me of the old Spy Hunter game for Commodore 64. And busybuttons within busybuttons lining both sides of the gauge cluster! Just incredible. Via tumblr.

Maybe it's no Fiat 500 Abarth,  but Volkswagen's new Beetle GSR pays tribute in a similar vein to the company's Gelb Schwarzer Renner ("Yellow-Black Racer") of yesteryear. Plus the turbocharged bug puts out 210 hp and marks the American debut of VW's 3rd-generation 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder. Not bad! More pics at Motor Trend.

This diesel-powered Econoline has an extra-wide sleeper cab and a concealed 5th-wheel hitch. The only thing that'd make it more awesome would be if it was a rollback, which was what I initially guessed it was when I saw a partial pic. Check it out on eBay!
