Audi’s five-cylinder engine turns 40 today. Created to mitigate the packaging and weight distribution downsides of an inline-six cylinder engine, with the advent of turbocharging and permanent all-wheel drive the motor went on to be a legend.
Vantrue’s compact N1 dash cam is only $60 today with promo code BH2F9URO, but it doesn’t skimp on features. You get night vision, automatic loop recording, a g-sensor to detect crashes, and even a parking mode that uses motion detectors to film anyone or anything that gets too close to your vehicle while it’s…
Have some old tires lying around the shop? Don’t let them go to waste! Put them on your crazy homemade go-kart and get sideways until they pop.
Former House Speaker John Boehner hadn’t uploaded a video since his farewell address 10 months ago, the subtext of which was “you won’t have old John Boehner to kick around anymore.” That all changed earlier today when he uploaded a seven-second video of himself driving his RV out into the plains.
After years of pleading from fans on both sides, Microsoft is finally crossing-over two of its most popular characters: Forza car and Halo Warthog.
From afar, wind turbines look like such majestic things, turning lazily in the breeze and creating energy. Located on tops of mountains or in open fields, some people complain that they ruin the scenery, but I like them. And I’ve always wondered how something so big can get up to the top of a mountain. As it turns…
I’m not sure I’ve had a car to review that I’ve liked less than the 2016 Lexus LX 570. It’s not that it’s a technically bad vehicle, because it’s not: mechanically, it’s a body-on-frame Land Cruiser, and it’s plenty reliable and capable. It’s also incredibly frustrating, overcomplicated, unpleasant to drive, and ugly…
The Mercedes-AMG SL63 convertible is a good car. A very good car. That sounds a bit ridiculous as it costs an eye-watering $162,795, but a lot of cars that cost that much are actually bad. As in, not good. Before I write a full review, now’s your chance to pick my brain.
I cannot help but cherish and adore this demo video for what appears to be an interesting and innovative two-wheel drive collapsable off-road motorcycle from Russia. Critically, it is set to Twisted Sister’s 1985 classic “The Price.”
The joy of the automobile is in the harmony of form and function—or, in the case of our old pal the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.i.am, to just stick a bunch of fake vents and other junk on a Tesla and call it a day.
Here’s a bit of schadenfreude for those of us who can’t afford to breathe in New York’s Upper West Side: A water main break last night created a sinkhole, and that sinkhole swallow an entire BMW worth around $55,000*.
You might not need to use a Dremel all that often, but it’s one of those things everyone should keep in their tool box, if only for sanding wood and carving jack-o-lanterns, and this compact battery-operated model is marked down to $69 today on Amazon. There are cheaper corded models out there, but this thing is small…
Last week, we saw the striking Cadillac Escala concept unveiled at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It wasn’t as zany as some Cadillac concepts have been, and we suspected the reason for that was because Cadillac might actually push this thing into production with a rumored twin-turbo V8 as a heart. And following…
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.
General Motors is giving the Chevrolet Colorado an entirely new V6 gasoline engine with cylinder deactivation and an eight-speed transmission for 2017. Apparently the idea is to give the truck better performance and economy, which sounds great. But GM’s estimated new 0-60 mph and MPG figures? “Essentially [a]…
This horrific 10-car pileup in upstate New York last week included a tractor trailer with faulty brakes spearing through traffic, but no one was killed. One major reason for that was the crowd of bystanders who managed to pull a woman from the burning wreckage of her car.
Fog over Laguna Seca.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
