Renault unveils Sandero Stepway concept in Brazil

by Noah Joseph

If you've ever heard of the Dacia Sandero, it's probably from Clarkson teasing James May about it on Top Gear. The no-nonsense, bare-bones hatchback – sold alternatively as a Renault in markets where its budget subsidiary Dacia doesn't exist – is a favorite of Captain Slow.

In South America, the Sandero also comes as a crossover version called the Stepway, and taller though it is, it's just as decidedly spartan. That didn't stop Renault from drumming up some excitement over the budget range, however, with the show car you see here.

Envisioned as a successor to the current model and closer to a junior Duster, the Sandero Stepway Concept dials up the glitz factor just a touch with a sporty body kit, three-tone paint scheme and enough blue LEDs to light up the trendiest of night clubs. Also, some flower decals... for some reason. The result is something akin to a futuristic cup of cappuccino...

Kevin Durant's GMC Van Video

Kevin Durant, one of the best NBA player most people not at all are getting to see, drives his extra long conversion van 10 minutes from his house in the bounds of Oklahoma City to the Thunder's practice facility, which if not precisely in the middle of nowhere is at least on its border.

He passes wilting power lines and inoperative oil derricks and enormous fields of delicate yellow grass pocked with snow before turning onto a two-lane road and, just past the John Deere factory, pulling into the parking lot of the practice center, a converted roller rink. Unfolding his 6'9" frame from the van, Durant ambles past the strange rabbit lounge in the bushes and enters the gym for another day of work.

Michael Jordan's $430,000 Mercedes McLaren For Sale?

Michael Jordan has bought a 2007 Mercedes McLaren SLR 722. It is said that it is one of the best cars that was made. But as of now, he's selling it after only driving it 962 miles? The McLaren can be yours for $430,000, which is a little precious for that brand even if the wheels were spun for fewer than a thousand miles (considering it cost around $475,000 new). The sellers are clearly factoring in the whole "Michael Jordan owned this car" addition.

Umbrella Auto Design tricks out the Nissan GT-R's cockpit

by Noah Joseph

If the Nissan GT-R is going to seriously take on the Porsche 911, it's going to need to do a bit better on the interior fit and finish. Nissan's own people realized that much when they launched the Egoist edition of the new GT-R, but what if you've already got your Godzilla in the driveway? What are you to do then?

Turn to Umbrella Auto Design, that's what. The Seattle-based tuners have announced an aftermarket retrofit for the GT-R's interior that swathes the entire cabin – seats, dashboard, console, instrument binnacle, steering wheel, door panels, shift levers, etc. in luxe and racy black ultra-suede with silver diamond quilting and top-stitch. They've even repainted the plastics in black to match. Looks pretty slick, and they can reportedly carry it out on any GT-R in about three weeks. Check it out in the gallery below.

The 2011 Honda Odyssey Car Concept

2011 honda odyssey concept

2011 Honda Odyssey Concept Basic Dimensions:

Length (inches) 202.8
Width (inches) 78.5
Height (inches) 68.3
Wheelbase (inches) 118.1

The Honda Odyssey Concept that was on display at the Chicago Auto Show introduces a smooth and unique exterior styling direction for the next generation of the industry's best-selling minivan, set to debut this fall, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., as it was announced.

The Odyssey Concept significantly departs from usual minivan styling with its low and wide stance, highlighted by a "lightning-bolt" beltline that further distinguishes the vehicle's profile. Compared to the current Odyssey, the Concept's slightly lower roofline (-1.0 inch) and wider stance (+1.4 inch) contribute to a sleeker, stronger and more dynamic presence with improved aerodynamics that help increase fuel economy. Forthcoming improvements to the production Odyssey's interior are designed to further enhance the current model's accommodating space for people and cargo.

The steeply raked front and rear roof pillars, unique side-glass profile, chamfered roof line, and tapered rear cabin shape combine to create a dynamic and distinctive appearance from any perspective. The lightning-bolt beltline dives toward the rear of the vehicle emphasizing the new Odyssey's sporty appearance while enhancing outward visibility for third-row passengers. Aggressive body-to-wheel proportions reduce the perception of vertical height common to most minivan designs. Fender flares further accent the vehicle's securely planted and stylish persona. The concept vehicle's projector beam headlights, LED taillights and form-fit fog lights further heighten the sophisticated quality of the design.

Usher Buys Justin Bieber A Car?

Is this for real? Justin Bieber might be a teen heartthrob, the popular singer of the song "Baby" (see the above music video) and be the man of the moment on the pop scene, but things got even better for the teen after Usher bought him a brand new Range Rover car!?? Bieber turned 16 earlier this month and marked the occasion by having a huge party with all his friends in Los Angeles, but his Sweet Sixteenth was marked by his mentor Usher when the Yeah! hitmaker unveiled a brand new Range Rover for the teen.

"I haven't really bought anything; I haven't really went out and bought a bunch of stuff," Bieber told JSYK. "I bought myself a laptop, but that's pretty much it. My biggest thing I'm probably going to get is my car next year. Probably a Maserati or the new Range Rover." When the Canadian pop singer recently dropped by the British TV show Live From Studio Five, he revealed that Usher hooked him up with a brand-new Range Rover for his sweet 16. "I was in L.A (for my birthday)," he said. "I went to L.A. first and I had a party out there for all my friends and stuff and then we went to Toronto and had a family party up there. (Usher) helped buy me a car. He bought me a Range Rover. I can drive."
