It’s always tricky to really get a good sense of a car’s value from an online auction, but sometimes there’s some hints that can really help. In the case of this 1997 BMW 318TI up for sale over at Copart, there’s a pretty good clue about the car’s value: it’s covered in money.
Recently, Parker Nirenstein from supercar YouTube series Vehicle Virgins went to a Michelin press event where there was an autocross. You know, actual hard driving that requires skill and precision, the likes of which we don’t see on supercar YouTube very often. He is immediately called out by Alex Roy. It is…
Recently I got to take Cadillac’s CTS-V all over some of my favorite Texas Hill Country roads. It was great, but that was only part of the story. The real reason I was driving the CTS-V was to test out the $1,600 optional Performance Data Recording system that Cosworth developed for Cadillac. They not only use this in…
Three cars became a giant, nightmarish wall of fire at a Washington short track Saturday, which the Seattle Times reports track announcers said was “one of the scariest” in its 63 years. The Times reports that everyone was OK, and the driver who had to be hospitalized was at work the next day preaching in a local…
If you’re envious of All-Clad pans, but don’t want to take out a second mortgage or sell a kidney to afford them, this Cuisinart MultiClad Pro set is a terrific alternative for a fraction of the price.
The age of coachbuilding may just be making a comeback. Ken Okuyama, the ex-Pininfarina designer who was responsible for the Ferrari Enzo and Maserati Quattroporte, has created one hell of a follow-up to the polarizing Code 57 unveiled at last year’s Monterey Car Week. I got to see it and shoot it.
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, and I swear, you have to know these things.
I was on Craiglsist, as I spend much of my time these days, the other night when I came across language that troubled me deeply. (And no, I wasn’t on the part of Craigslist where you find someone to hurl sexual insults at while they clean your apartment for free. I already got someone for that this month.)
It’s not another workday: it’s the prelude to a weekend of getting out there and driving like a champion.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
You could buy a Dodge Challenger Hellcat for about $70K, or you could save thirty grand and buy today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe SRT8, which is also supercharged but features nitrous to boot. Let’s see if the car is up to the price’s challenge.
If your board game collection is gathering dust, it’s time to freshen up your options with Amazon’s one-day Gold Box deal.
For the 2017 Baja 1000, which is being recognized as the 50th anniversary of the event, race sanctioning body SCORE has created two new classes for period-correct race vehicles built before 1992. It’s going to be old-school cool fender-to-fender all the way down to La Paz, baby!
Back when Mercedes was using the re-animated corpse of Pablo Picasso as the head of design for the Unimog division.
Rolls-Royce is known for a lot of things, but daring technological weirdness generally isn’t one of them. That’s why it’s so surprising that they made an engine that, when described, seems like a string of the most unlikely adjectives you can link together: a Wankel with two separate rotors (but not a twin-rotor)…
Three years ago, I dropped $1,000 on a lift kit for my daily-driver, a 1992 Jeep Cherokee. And while I initially loved the way it turned out, I’ve grown to detest almost everything about my new suspension. Lifting my daily driver was a dumb idea.
In a camping and tailgating scene dominated by budget portable grills, Napoleon’s TravelQ Pro 285X rolls up with premium design, engineering, and presence.
Memo Gidley was in one of the scariest 24 Hours of Daytona crashes ever in 2014, where Gidley hit a slowing Ferrari at speed, ripping the top off of his Daytona Prototype. But he never gave up on his dream of returning to the sport. Three and a half years later, Gidley is finally returning to racing in a Pirelli World…
