I Finished the 2014 BITD Vegas to Reno in Last Place

Number 1 item on my bucket list was always to compete and finish a desert race on a bike, so I entered this years Vegas to Reno, the longest off road race in the US. It was 534 miles of the nastiest terrain I have ever ridden. I built my 2012 CRF450X bike up for the race with the help from Johnny Campbell Racing who… » 10/31/14 1:11pm 3 minutes ago

You Can Buy This Porsche 911 Turbo For The Price Of A Used BMW 3-Series

There are fast cars, and then there's the Porsche 911 Turbo.

We're Hanging Out With Ferrari Challenge Racers All Weekend

We may have accidentally made Ferrari Challenge one of Jalopnik's favorite motorsports, but perhaps for the wrong reasons. There's more to the series than "LOL RICH GUY CRASHES CAR" and we're here with winning driver Carlos Gomez to prove it. » 10/31/14 11:47am Today 11:47am

Pininfarina Furoserie: Rarer than a LaFerrari, cheaper than a used…

You know what I like about getting email from Pininfarina? It could be about anything. It could be about a speedboat. It could be about a zillion dollar limited edition Ferrari Sergio. It could be a total accident. Today it's about a bicycle. » 10/31/14 10:32am Today 10:32am

The Sad Story of Soviet Cruiser Murmansk

Today is Halloween, and we love to trade spooky stories of ghosts and ghost ships to get into the spirit. Today's ghost ship story, however, is more sad and pathetic than spooky: Soviet Cruiser Murmansk, once a ship that sent shivers down NATO admirals' spines, wound up an embarrassing rusted-out hulk stuck in a… » 10/31/14 9:33am Today 9:33am

I Think I Found The Most Adorably Insane Way To Die

If you want to go out in a blaze of adorable, tiny glory, I think I'd suggest a rocket-powered Peel Trident. Of course, the goal of this particular one wasn't ending it all, but rather setting the record for the fastest Peel ever: a 78.48 mph 1/4 mile. » 10/31/14 9:00am Today 9:00am

This Could Be the Year You Quit Wasting 36,500 Minutes Behind the Wheel

Each year the average American spends 608 hours driving a car — almost 26 full days of getting from point A to point B. That's equivalent to watching every episode of Breaking Bad ten times (don't put it past me). As a driver, it's your duty to own this potential, and lots of car companies are already willing to help… » 10/30/14 12:00pm Yesterday 12:00pm

Help Write the Forza Horizon 2 Travel Guide, Win an Xbox One and an HDTV

Okay, Europe is pretty awesome as a travel destination, but it has its difficulties. It's expensive to get there, communicating with the locals can be difficult, and even if blazing around the hairpin turns of the Amalfi Coast didn't already present the serious possibility of death, what's the point if you can't do it… » 10/27/14 12:00pm Monday 12:00pm
