I’m a big fan of today’s eclipse. It hit my little patch of land during the brightest part of the day, partially obscuring the sun and providing very welcome shade. But our sadly partial view of the natural eclipse was not as cool as the world’s fastest Mitsubishi Eclipse, which has over 1,200 horsepower.
If there’s ever been a consistent shining light in the Chrysler brand portfolio in modern years, it’s been Jeep. Recognized and admired worldwide, is one of the strongest brands in any industry. But for Fiat Chrysler to give up its star player to a Chinese automaker, as has been suggested by recent reports, would be a…
Here it is, officially: the new 2018 BMW M5. The sixth generation of the biggest and baddest M-car sedan doesn’t look terribly different from the F10 generation, but it is, and it’s more powerful and has some fancy drivetrain tech too.
A few weeks ago I told you to go find and buy an old Mercedes C43 AMG, a hot little V8 rear-drive sedan from the 90s that still looks sweet and costs next to nothing today. A few days ago somebody took my advice. But maybe they took it a little too far.
Anker’s beginning its drive into the automotive accessory space with an affordable new dash cam, and you can race over to Amazon to snag one for $67 with code ANKERVC1, the best price we’ve seen since our exclusive (and short-lived) $64 launch deal.
NASCAR crew chief Frankie Kerr was underneath a 3,300-pound race car Friday evening after it fell on him. ESPN reports that the crash broke his shoulder blade and severely bruised his sternum and ribs. The very next day, Kerr, 56, strolled into Bristol Motor Speedway in a sling to work a 500-lap race.
The Woodward Dream Cruise is a celebration of car culture in all of its forms. Because of this, the cars I saw on Saturday in metro Detroit spanned the entire automotive spectrum from gorgeous Italian exotics, to America donks, to classic muscle cars, to shoddily-built homebrew kit-cars. It was glorious.
Ah, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California. Big hats, fake smiles, astronomical yearly incomes and tax evasion of all levels. Basically: my kind of soirée. At least, it would be if I didn’t keep getting asked to leave. Those bitches.
Driving a 1978 Ferrari 308 with zero engine noise was weird. Using a regular three-pedal five-speed manual gearbox connected to an electric motor was even odder. But Electric GT’s EV-swapped Ferrari has a distinctive driving experience that, once you wrap your brain around it, is uniquely satisfying.
Look, I need to apologize to all of you. Like so many of us, I’ve gotten a bit delirious from the potential of a loss of 93% of my required sunlight for a few minutes today, and as a result I may have pushed the idea that the Mitsubishi Eclipse is named for the astronomic phenomenon we’ll see today involving the moon…
Philips’ entry-level Sonicare Essence electric toothbrush has long been a reader favorite, and now Amazon’s running the best deal we’ve seen on the sequel, the Essence+.
Formula One just announced its very first ever eSports world championship using its F1 2017 game, reports ESPN. So, good news for everyone who wasn’t gifted a go kart at age two: you’ve finally got a shot in F1 (sort of) if you’re good at its video game.
I’m not sure if the gravity of this has sunk in for you just yet, but the total eclipse of the sun expected to happen soonest after the birth of the Mitsubishi Eclipse is the one happening today. That’s right, today’s eclipse was the next total eclipse that the designers of the Eclipse would have eclipsed. Also,…
The World Rally Championship’s Rallye Deutschland is a ridiculously fast blast through the German countryside, mostly on tarmac. There’s nothing more satisfying than watching these cars bounce around on landing but still somehow—somehow!—keep it under control. Behold, flat-out driving at its craziest.
Uber has problems. It doesn’t actually make money, it’s getting sued over alleged tech theft from Google, it’s plagued with a garbage culture and saw the departure of its founder and CEO bro Travis Kalanick this summer. But one early angel Uber investor has a (bad) idea to save things: merge with Tesla! That will do…
Chewing gum, zip-ties, cardboard and beer cans: what do all these things have in common? Why, they’re all useful in desperate car repairs, of course!
One of the more amusing things about cable news—and contemporary media in general—is its insatiable appetite for branding major (and occasionally minor) news events as overly designed cross-platform content packages. These are most often seen during moments of extreme tragedy (terrorist attacks, war) or extreme…
It’s always been a goal of mine to make Jalopnik the best source for turn indicator-related information and commentary on the internet. That’s why I’m both so impressed at the work that went into this video and a bit ashamed it didn’t occur to me to think this through. Finally, someone has done the math to show…
