A Letter from Herb
1995 McLaren F1
August is an exciting time for the automotive industry. While the 2018 model year traditionally starts in October, many brands release new models throughout the year. By August, most manufacturers are ready to clear out their 2017 models in advance of the 2018 arrivals. As some may say, "Out with the old, in with the new!"
That may also be said for one of the vehicles in my personal collection: my 1995 McLaren F1.
Beginning August 18 th , the very first McLaren F1 imported into the US and the very first of only a handful of F1s to become fully federalized as a US road-legal car, will be up for auction at Bonhams' Quail Lodge. Known by many as the, "ultimate road car", the 1995 McLaren F1, number 044, is a pioneering legend! Car and Driver says it is "the fastest, most accelerative production car the world has ever seen."  
The 1995 McLaren F1 will be offered on August 18 at Bonhams' Quail Lodge Auction in Carmel, California. For more detailed information about the McLaren, click here
2018 Audi A5
2018 Audi A5
The newly redesigned 2018 Audi A5 and S5 models have new platforms, engines, styling, technology, and safety features! And there is a new model, a sexy Sportback that's been available in Europe for some time. Actually, make that two models, because the Sportback comes as a high-performance S5 as well.
That makes three body styles available: two-door Coupe, four-door Sportback hatch, and sporty two-door Cabriolet convertible. Each comes in A5 and S5 tune.
The A5 improves on all levels, especially power, handling, and looks. It's the best A5 ever, as any redesigned model should be. It presents a comfortable ride, balanced handling, and a strong engine having a subdued note.

2017 Cadillac XT5
2017 Cadillac XT5
The 2017 Cadillac XT5 is a crossover that takes the place of the SRX. Rather than a dramatically different new model, the XT5 is an evolutionary replacement. Following on the heels of the CT6 sedan, it's one leg of a broader leap forward for the company. The SRX was a sales success, so the XT5 is a crucial replacement for Cadillac.
Roughly identical to the SRX in size, the new five-passenger Cadillac XT5 weighs about 278 pounds less, and performs better.
As its name suggests, the Cadillac XT5 is packed with technology. Detail work is better than ever. As in the CT6, one prominent goal was use of lighter-weight materials and methods. Aiming at younger shoppers, designers turned to more voluptuous design, as well as developing more extravagant interior appointments.
