Huffington Post food and lifestyle blogger Jane Seo had her second-place finish in the Fort Lauderdale A1A Half Marathon disqualified on Sunday night. Two days after the race, a part-time marathon watchdog blogger revealed that Seo had cheated and cut 1.5 miles off her course while securing her 1:21:46 finish. Not…
My family and friends don’t understand why I buy rusty, dilapidated vehicles. “Why not purchase something that doesn’t look like it just came out of a junkyard?” they ask. The answer to that question is complex, and requires an examination of what it is that makes a car beautiful.

You are not imagining it: you are getting older. Your metabolism is slowing down by the hour. Your wrinkles are showing. You’re not sleeping enough. And your commute to work is genuinely getting longer.
After a deluge of teasing press releases and premature speculation, we can finally share some Very Important NASA News: Today, the agency announced that a team of scientists has confirmed seven Earth-sized exoplanets orbiting TRAPPIST-1, a star located just 39 light-years away from our Sun. The six inner planets are…
If McLaren is going to hop onto the Drift Mode bandwagon, they have to test it out somehow. Perhaps the most enviable man in the world is McLaren Automotive Chief Test Driver Chris Goodwin, who gets to use sweet sideways action to shake down McLaren’s newest offerings, including the upcoming 720S.
There are few better feelings in games than shooting through a corkscrew at blinding speeds. Super Pilot is a futuristic racing game that not only feels damn fast, it lets you craft your own stunning tracks. It is this week’s indie pick!
Winning is great and all, but what you really want is to win with some style.
When the United States was on the bottom rung of The Great Depression, looking for a foothold, desperately clinging onto any shred of hope, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt created The New Deal. Hand over hand, rung by rung, we sprung forward with innovative programs like The Tennessee Valley Authority, which still…
I am unable to agree with Raph’s rant about the lack of beautiful Formula One cars from the other day. Complicated, intricately curved and folded aerodynamic bits are entirely my jam. Then Force India whipped out its new VJM10 with a penis-nosed front end that is truly the ghost of ugly F1 cars past. Oh, no. Bless…
Last week, I was on a flight to California, flipping through the various movies I could watch on the headrest. Boogie Nights was available. Great movie! Thing is, more than a few parts of it might have made the family sitting next to me a little uncomfortable.

The current Lamborghini Huracán is a lovely and restrained design, about as understated as a 200 mph supercar can be. But a 200 mph supercar shouldn’t be restrained, which is why I’m excited to see the mad scoops and wings of Italdesign’s new Lamborghini-based (and oddly unnamed) custom car.
To prevent massive dams from overflowing when heavy rains cause water levels to rise, spillways like this are used to drain water to the stream below. Without a true sense of scale, it looks just like the drain in your bathtub, but from a drone’s bird’s eye view, the opening to this spillway looks more like a black…
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
You tend to think of race cars just in terms of how much faster or slower they are than other cars they’re competing against. Rarely do you get to think of their speed in isolation. With that in mind, get a load of how f’ing fast the new GT3-spec Acura NSX looks all on its own.
You can expect a few things from car documentaries: vintage racing footage, statements from legends and incredible car porn. The new McLaren film seems like it will promise all three.
The Infiniti G20 probably wasn’t a great car. But it was a good car. And I’m always kind of happy to see decent ones running around.
