I see right through you, Mustang drivers.

Not because you are fake (though you can be), but because Ford is now offering a glass roof option that will be available on 2009 V6 and GT models

The $1,995 option features special tinted glass that reduces infrared rays and heat, as well as a manual roller blind can block incoming sunlight.

Mustang’s sales have been down this year by about 19% this year, so they are hoping this hip, new feature will kick start some new interest and sales. Pretty transparent of them, huh?

A 1968 Volkswagen Beetle covered in glass and 18-karat gold was unveiled recently at an auto show in Bucharest. At a cool $88,000 it’s out of reach for most people, but then again if you’re crazy enough to buy this p.o.s., you’re probably rich enough that you’ll never be driving it anyway.

Still, how sweet would it be to roll up to your brahs in this pimptastic thrill ride? Trick that b*atch with a couple of LCD scrinz and a 360 and roll to Weinerschnitzel fo some corn dogs.

There’s one car that is the most biofuelingest of the biofuels….and it called the Koenigsegg CCXR.

Bow down to its greatness!

Yes, the Koenigsegg CCXR supercar features a lightweight, cast-aluminum V8 engine, powered by biofuel that can go 0-100kph in 2.9 seconds (that’s 1018 HP at 7200 rpm and 780 lb/ft of torque at 6100 rpm to you, bubba). This awesomeness is made possible by E85 biofuel's higher octane rating and cooler cooling properties.

Now all you need is 1.5 million euros to score yourself one of these bad boys and…oh…well, that’s me out then…

Throw ya gunz up, bitches!

After years of focusing on sport utility vehicles and trucks, it looks like Detroit is back in the car business, y’all!

Yes, Motor Trend Magazine has named the new Cadillac CTS its 2008 car of the year, declaring it is proof that Detroit can build a world-class sedan.

The Nuge would be proud.

General Motors’ CTS won from a field of 18 vehicles such as the Honda Accord and new Dodge and Chrysler minivans in what the mag says was one of the toughest fields in the award’s history.

Volkswagen's sweet looking Space Up! interface could have possibly been developed by Apple.

The interface is reminiscent of an Apple device and it features a Cover Flow-like feature. Engadget notes that it also sports a Jack Johnson album cover, which Apple has used a lot in its promotion before.

VW has said that all of their 2009 models will have touch screens.

Hopefully, Apple is behind this because they make great interfaces.

Honda Gets Clarity

Honda recently introduced the production version of the FCX fuel-cell hybrid at the LA Auto Show this week, conveniently called the FCX Clarity. The zero-emissions ride features a hydrogen-fuel-station-finding GPS system, which gets you the "gasoline-equivalent" mileage of 68mpg combined city/highway.

For the time being, Honda is leasing only 100 or so of the cars to buyers who live near one of its three hydrogen fuel stations in Southern California. So it looks like if you wanna save the world, you gotta move to Cali, baby! Hahahahaha!

We love a good Burnout game--the combination of mayhem and sweet cars goes down like peanut butter and jam.

The latest entry in the series, Burnout Paradise, comes out on January 22, and will feature a massive city that's totally open from the first time you hit "start," a menuless play-system and, as always, lots of car crashes.

Check out the trailer.

Google has expanded from search engines to mail program to gas pumps.

Wait, gas pumps? Really? Yes, Really.

According to engadget.com, Google and Gilbarco Veeder-Root are teaming up to include Google's mapping service on 3,500 Internet enabled gasoline pumps across the US.

"The maps will be available on the pump's small screen giving motorists the ability to scroll through local landmarks, hotels, restaurants, and hospitals to the bemusement of the guy waiting behind you." The pump will even print directions so you don't get lost, plus, it's ad-free, supported by coupons...which are like ads that save you money.

Project Gotham Racing 4 has a new-fangled weather system that basically creates new tracks based on the conditions. G4tv.com put this to the test.

We loaded up a track in Tokyo and raced on a peaceful night (we're better at Forza 2). We then tried the same track in the snow and it really did change the way the track plays.

Watch us slip around in a really expensive virtual car:
