Two of Autoblog's editors argue the finer points of hot hatches in a point/counterpoint rundown between the Fiat 500 Abarth and Ford Fiesta ST. Arguments are made, but no firm conclusions drawn. Feel free to offer your own opinion in our completely unscientific poll.



Quick Spin: Nissan NV200 taxiWe take the Nissan NV200 taxi for a Quick Spin

What in the world is Autoblog doing testing a taxi? Good question. You see, this isn't a Ford Crown Victoria, or even a Ford Escape Hybrid. The bright yellow machine in question is, in fact, the brand-new Nissan NV200 that you're about to see infiltrating the streets of the busiest city in America: New York. Just what you should expect after hailing the taxi of tomorrow is discussed herein.

Hey. You. Yeah, you. Do you think Nissan should build a midsize pickup truck with a diesel engine? Yeah, so do we. And we just got the chance to drive just such a beast, though it's anything but a production model at this point. This particular example is fitted with a 2.8-liter four-cylinder from Cummins, and it puts out 200 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to tow as much as 7,000 pounds.

Blood muscle auctionBlood Muscle auction? Sounds terrible, looks awesome

It's nicknamed the Blood Muscle auction because the cars, which will be sold each to the highest bidders on September 12, were attained by the president of a blood-testing company who is now incarcerated for alleged bribery. There's a Boss Mustang, a trio of Yenko Chevrolets and our personal favorite, a Plymouth Superbird, among others, up for bidding.
