2019 Bugatti Chiron Sport ‘110 Ans' Edition

2019 Bugatti Chiron Sport ‘110 Ans’ Edition

It’s the perfect special edition model to celebrate automaker’s 110th anniversary

Bugatti is celebrating its 110th anniversary this year, and in keeping with its reputation for celebrating anniversaries in style, it’s bringing a special edition Chiron to the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The special edition model, called the Chiron Sport “110 Ans,” is essentially a love letter for Bugatti, from Bugatti. It’s limited to just 20 units, and it’s dressed up in the finest exclusive touches you can find in the business. The special edition ode to Bugatti’s heritage will be the centerpiece of Bugatti’s exhibit in Geneva, though it may or may not be joined by a mysterious one-off hypercar that Bugatti is also rumored to have a spot for in its booth in Geneva. But that’s a different story. This is all about the Bugatti Chiron Sport 110 Ans Edition, a fitting celebratory piece to Bugatti’s long and storied history in the business.

2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI35

2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI35

The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI35 Is The Best “GTI with a trunk” ever

The new 2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI is just right. Presented at the 2019 Chicago Motor Show, the new hot Volkswagen compact sedan gained the much-needed overhaul with a fine upgrade that came from none other than the parts bins of the Golf GTI and the Golf R. It is a thoroughly improved car, with a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, gasoline engine, a fresh new look, and a far more advanced suspension compared to the lesser units. Let me just say it - rear multi-link. It has it.

With the new model introduced in Chicago, Volkswagen USA officials actually noted that the new car will come with two trim levels, while the limited edition GLI 35 serves as sort of a high-end model of the GLI world.

Now, we’ve already learned a lot about the new Volkswagen Jetta GLI, but what about the Volkswagen Jetta GLI35?

2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock

2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock

A custom throwback special edition that conjures the ‘70s

These days, custom pickup trucks are everywhere, with interested buyers offered a plethora of choices both from the aftermarket and straight from the factory. However, 40 years ago, it was far less common to get a bespoke aesthetic direct from the manufacturer. In that sense, the original Warlock pickup broke the mold, and now Ram is taking the nameplate off the shelf for a fresh special edition iteration of the 1500.

2019 Toyota 86 British Green Limited Edition

2019 Toyota 86 British Green Limited Edition

Toyota’s entry-level sports car never looked so good

The Toyota 86 will remain in our lives for the foreseeable future now that Toyota has confirmed plans to develop a next-generation model. But that isn’t coming until 2021. For now, Toyota is keeping the current-generation 86 fresh in our minds with the new British Green Limited Edition that’s available exclusively in Japan. The newest special edition 86 follows a similar blueprint as all the other special edition 86 models in the past. Most of the upgrades are aesthetic by nature, though there are a few performance bits added to compensate for the lack of an engine upgrade. Unfortunately, for us, at least, the 86 British Green Limited Edition is available only in Japan at a starting price of 3.318 million yen. Not that it matters to us, but that converts to around $30,000 based on current exchange rates.

2019 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition

2019 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition

Adds cool features to an old SUV

The Rock Creek Edition is a special-edition version of the Nissan Pathfinder that includes new accessories and a few extra features at no additional cost. Introduced at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, it freshens up the somewhat dated fourth-generation Pathfinder, which was launched in 2012 and went through a mid-cycle upgrade for the 2017 model year. Offered on SV and SL grades (no soup for you if you want the base model or the range-topping Platinum trim), it costs only $995. Nissan says it will save you $1,315 compared to a similar vehicle with all those features ordered separately, but is it worth it? Let’s find out in the review below.

2019 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Pacifica 35th Anniversary Edition

A half-hearted attempt that we will all forget about within a day

It was not just Mazda which brought an anniversary edition model to Chicago Auto Show.The MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition might have stolen the limelight, but Chrysler and Dodge have launched anniversary editions of their minivans as well. Perhaps, they went unnoticed because they are humble minivans and not some fancy roadsters. Oh, automotive enthusiasts, thou art mean.

2019 Cadillac XT5 Sport Edition

2019 Cadillac XT5 Sport Edition

Darker exterior trim, standard V-6 engine

Introduced for the 2017 model year, the XT5 is Cadillac’s first ever compact crossover. Originally sold alongside the massive Escalade, the XT5 now slots between the XT4 and theXT6. At the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, after three years on the market, Cadillac launched the Sport Package, a limited-edition bundle that adds a bit of variety to the crossover’s three-trim lineup.

The XT5 Sport joins similar versions offered for the smaller XT4 and the larger XT6 SUVs. It gives the XT5 a darker, slightly more aggressive appearance, but it doesn’t change anything under the hood. The Sport package is available with the Luxury and Premium Luxury trims, meaning it comes with a wide range of standard luxury features and technology, sitting just below the range-topping Platinum model. Let’s see what it offers.

2019 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia

2019 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia

Far from special, but limited to 15 units in the U.S.

Introduced in 2013 as the company’s first true-blue sports car in decades, the Alfa Romeo 4C soldiered on into 2019 with almost no upgrades. At the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, the Italian company launched the 4C Spider Italia, a limited-edition roadster with a handful of extra features. Although it doesn’t stray far from the regular model, it confirms that the 4C Spider will remain in production for the 2020 model year.

With the Coupe discontinued at the end of 2018, the Spider remains in dealerships for at least one more year, but the Italia is far from special. Finished in an exclusive paint and fitted with custom graphics and badges, it’s just a poor attempt to keep this bare-bones sports car appealing among newer products. Is it worth getting one? Let’s find out below.

For an automaker, almost any excuse is an excuse good enough to roll out a special version of a model in the lineup. Be it the anniversary of the company itself or of that model, we’ve seen many dull models celebrate important landmarks, but here are 10 of the ones that weren’t boring nor easily forgettable.

The unveiling at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show of not one but two anniversary models, the Mazda Miata 30th-anniversary and the Volkswagen Jetta GLI 35th-anniversary, got me thinking and made me search for interesting anniversary models from the recent past.

Those deserve to have their story told another time.

The 2019 BMW M140i Finale Edition Is Your Last Chance To Get This Hot Hatch With a Rear-Wheel Drive and Six Bangers Under The Hood

Sorry, folks

The BMW 1 Series is arguably one of the best hatches to drive on the market today. It has the grunt, it has the power, and it has the Bavarian DNA. The 1 Series is due for a new generation this year, however, BMW has no plans to carry the rear-wheel-drive system and the six-cylinder engine over to the next-gen. To mark the end of this journey, BMW is bidding adieu to the M140i to this unique combination with the Finale Edition model.

Rolls-Royce’s Collaboration with The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Chain is a Celebration of The Chinese New Year

Three "Year of the Pig" Cullinan SUVs are the fruits of this partnership

The Chinese market is very important to Rolls-Royce. It’s so important that the British automaker is rolling a trio of special edition Cullinan SUVs to celebrate the start of the Chinese New Year, which just so happens to fall on the Year of the Pig. The special edition Cullinans were created in collaboration with the Mandarin Oriental hotel chain. Each of the three SE Cullinans sport unique exterior colors with identifiable badges to commemorate the Year of the Pig. Mandarin Oriental hotels in Miami, Boston, and Washington D.C. each have one of the three Cullinan special editions until today, February 8. They’re not just for display, too. Guests at the hotel can take chauffeured two-mile rides in them. Even better, the international hotel chain is also offering a chance for any of its guest to win the use of one of the Cullinan special edition models for a week.
