The last time an all-new Kia Optima premiered, five years ago, it was evident that the South Korean automaker could design great-looking cars. And now there’s an all-new Optima and, for a family sedan, it’s quite stunning. The 2016 Kia Optima has premiered in New York and it’s clear the firm's designers didn’t want to mess too much with a good thing. It keeps the previous model’s athletic stance but now rides on a chassis that’s longer, wider and stiffer for improved ride and handling and a more spacious cabin.

Apparently he was rushed to hospital, and we can see why. It's not pretty.

Last week, this poor little McLaren 12C bore the brunt without any fault of its driver. It was actually being transported on a semi-truck to get some repairs done. But, the semi-truck got hit by a train which left the Mac mangled in a ditch with around $50,000 worth of damage. After getting stuck on the tracks in Orange Park, Florida, the trailer driver informed 911 warning them he was about to get hit by a train. He pleaded with them to stop the train somehow.
