Remember, back in the late ‘90s-early 2000s, the X-Files was on this big ‘black oil’ overarching storyline, where there was some weird alien black virus goop that would pour out of infected people’s eyes? Well, Rolls-Royce seems to have decided that this is just the thing to sell incredibly expensive cars.
Admittedly, giving someone the middle finger is somewhat losing your cool, but it’s nowhere near as bad as running into the guy you’re annoyed with. This one-bird salute from Formula E’s Nick Heidfeld is the smoothest middle finger I’ve seen in ages. Watch and learn.
As is currently en vogue for any company making a product that ends up in consumers’ hands, Oscar Mayer is expanding its Weinermobile fleet with a phallic flying drone that can (supposedly) drop a single hot dog on someone not too worried about what they’re eating. If Silicon Valley had its way, we’d only eat things…
The world’s most powerful production car, the nearly $3 million Bugatti Chiron, has been out for almost a year and a half now.

Monday mornings suck. The only thing that makes returning to work mildly tolerable is sweet, life-sustaining coffee. However, corporate employees at Ford were forced to ask “what fresh new hell is this?” when their coffee failed to deliver its much needed jolt this morning. Ford North America Product Communications…
After years of delays and cost overruns, the British Royal Navy’s HMS Queen Elizabeth is set to begin a series of critical sea trails that will help determine if the billions of pounds it took to build her were really worth it.
We’ve known since the beginning of the year that there’s going to, finally, be a new Ford Ranger coming to the U.S. market by 2019. The Ranger has been alive and well overseas, but that’s not the one that will be coming here. We’ll be getting an all-new Ranger, and, based on what we can tell from these spy photos,…

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is a car that drove straight from Japan, through our TV screens, punched the Subaru WRX STI in the face, and quickly disappeared into oblivion.
Having your car die on you is a pretty major inconvenience. Having it die in a place where it’s nightmarishly difficult to pull over or fix it is even worse. Quite a few of you have had this happen. I’m so sorry.
After ramming each other behind a safety car at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel didn’t sleep it off. In fact, no one in the Formula One universe really did.
