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.

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.
