Video: 2015 Dodge Challenger, Charger in Motion

Any attempt to describe the visceral experience of hitting the gas in the 2015 Dodge Challenger and Charger would be words "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." The only way to truly appreciate the sound and fury is to plant your backside in the driver's seat. Until then, check out our video above of the pair rumbling and spitting exhaust about, and we'll just see if you don't get revved up for the real thing.

2015FordMustang50YearLimitedEdition

For the limited-edition 2015 Ford Mustang announced this week, 5-0 means more than engine displacement.

Only 1,964 of them will be built. Celebrate the Mustang's reaching AARP eligibility and check out the photo gallery below.

It's been a while since Alfa Romeo cars were sold in the U.S., but the brand is back with a head-turning new coupe that debuted at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. After many delays, Alfa Romeo says the 2015 4C will go on sale in June.

2015 Dodge Challenger Photo Gallery (30 Photos)

2015DodgeChallenger

While the 2015 Dodge Charger has adopted the look of the present-day Dart, the new Challenger is sticking to its retro-style guns. Blissfully stuck in the '70s, the large sports coupe hasn't undergone much of a makeover for the new model year, save for some front- and rear-end refinement, projector-beam headlamps with LED halos, a split grille and grinning front bumper.

Interior design updates the Challenger's style all the way from 1970 to 1971 with that model year's trapezoidal dashboard, door and center console shapes. On the other hand, cabin materials have received an overdue refresh, lending some elegance to this muscle car's gun show.

2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Video

For the first time in nearly two decades, Alfa Romeo returns to the U.S. with the 4C, a mid-engine, two-seat sports coupe, bringing with it an iconic reputation — and allusions to '90s R&B one-hit wonders by Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays. The 4C, debuting at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, carries the brand's signature grille, carbon-fiber accents, a 237-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder and scant interior comforts. Mays says you can expect the 4C to hit dealerships in late June with a price starting around $54,000. For now, watch the video above for Mays' Montell Jordan references, which are priceless.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible Photo Gallery (28 Photos)

2015ChevroletCorvetteZ06Convertible

Let's not get too technical here: What you really need to know about the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 convertible is that it's the latest even-higher-performance version of the beloved supercar — without a top. So unless you have to worry about your new 'do getting destroyed in the wind or your toupee flying off and sticking to the windshield of the car eating your dust, you'll likely think that's pretty sweet.

More 2014 New York Auto Show Coverage

The Z06 convertible is now making its debut at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. There, visitors can check out how Chevrolet moved some things around to accommodate the droptop, as well as admire the new chassis, which the automaker says is rigid enough to stand up to performance driving but light enough to keep weight in check.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Video

For serious-but-accessible track driving, Cars.com reviewer Joe Bruzek gives an A to the Z/28. On his way to the 2014 New York International Auto Show, Bruzek tracked down the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 at the Monticello Motor Club and took the iconic muscle car's race-ready variant for a few turns, dubbing it the "ultimate track-car experience." Watch the action as a helmeted Bruzek demonstrates the Camaro's capabilities to the roaring soundtrack of its 505-horsepower, 7.0-liter V-8.

2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe Photo Gallery (33 Photos)

2015MercedesBenzS63AMGCoupe

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG coupe, the track-tuned version of the "regular" S-Class Coupe, is like a sequel to a Reagan-era action movie: more of what excited people about the original, but amped up to the extreme. Luxury-performance die-hards can get in on the action later this week at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, where the S63 AMG coupe was unveiled today.

What onlookers will see outside is not dissimilar to the S-Class Coupe, save for additional air-cooling grilles, side sills and a rear diffuser, along with larger wheels and AMG badging. Its inside is also amped up with unique graphics and fonts on the displays, exclusive Nappa leather sport seats, a three-spoke sport steering wheel and more AMG badging. Under the hood, however, drivers will find quite a difference in the twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 — mainly in the form of 577 horsepower and 664 pounds-feet of torque, propelling the coupe from zero to 60 mph in an exhilarating 3.9 seconds.

2015 BMW M4 Convertible Photo Gallery (25 Photos)

2015BMWM4Convertible

The curtain dropped on the droptop version of the 2015 BMW M4 this morning at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, and Cars.com was there to share airspace with the luxury sports car. We first saw the 2015 M4 – the M3 sedan's two-door sibling – back in January at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and knew then that a convertible could not be far behind.

Like the coupe, the convertible uses a 425-horsepower, 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-6; it scoots from zero to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 155 mph. Also like the coupe, the spoiler-less convertible has a reworked bumper with larger air intakes and frontal air curtains to redirect airflow. Meanwhile, interior cues include M badging, sport seats and steering wheel, and carbon-fiber trim.

2015 Alfa Romeo 4C: First Look

2015-alfa--4c

Competes with: Porsche 911, Jaguar F-Type

Looks like: It's stunning and resembles a smaller, sleeker version of Alfa's limited-production 8C Competizione

Drivetrain: All-aluminum, 237-horsepower, turbocharged 1.75-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission

Hits dealerships: The limited-production Launch Edition model goes on sale first in June, followed by the regular 4C

After many, many delays, the Alfa Romeo 4C is finally here. We've been hearing about the impending arrival of the compact, lightweight sports coupe, which marks the return of the Alfa Romeo brand to the U.S., since 2010 when parent Fiat announced a 2012 on-sale date. We got a glimpse at a would-be production version last year, but it never went on sale.

More 2014 New York Auto Show Coverage

Better late than never; the actual production model was just unveiled at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, and the automaker promised a June on-sale date. Two versions will be offered, the 4C and a limited-edition 4C Launch Edition; only 500 of the latter will be available and it will go on sale first.
