Here's What The First Maybach Mercedes 4x4 Will Probably Look Like

Mustache-Benz boss Dr. Dieter Zetsche has been quoted saying a Mercedes-Maybach SUV is "most likely!" Logic dictates that would basically be a GL, soon to be rebadged as GLS, with a bit of a body stretch and a private-jet interior. Subtle, quick, and decadently comfortable. » 1/31/15 12:05pm Today 12:05pm

NHTSA Re-Recalling 2.12 Million Cars, Half Of Which Are In Other Recall

The feds are recalling another 2.12 million vehicles in the never-ending airbag disaster after it was discovered that the fix originally offered wasn't good enough and airbags were blowing up in the absence of a crash. About half are in a different Takata recall and thus could send shrapnel into the faces of people in… » 1/31/15 10:53am Today 10:53am

Save The Stick, But Keep The Autos Too

Ever since learning to drive stick on my 1983 BMW 320i, all of my cars have had manual transmissions, except for a Grand Caravan and my ex-cop car that weren't available with them. I'm a strong supporter of the "Save the Stick" movement. Changing your own gears is the pedal dance of the enthusiast, an art form of… » 1/31/15 10:01am Today 10:01am

Feast Your JDM Loving Eyes On This Honda Civic Type R EK Wagon

Okay, so it's not actually an EK9 wagon, although that would be really, really cool. This is in fact a marriage of two different Honda vehicles which share parts: a Civic and an Orthia. And despite this being JDM as hell, this actually isn't Japan. It's Hong Kong. Still totally badass. EK WAGON, GUYS. GET EXCITED. » 1/31/15 9:00am Today 9:00am

Ralph Lauren Barely Visits His Enormous Car Palace And That's Okay

Ralph Lauren's car collection is very nearly perfect. It holds gems like the 1930 Mercedes-Benz SSK "Comte Trossi" (pictured here), a 1955 Jaguar XKD, a McLaren F1 LM, and a Ruf CTR3. So when a lawsuit divulged that he only spends 30 hours a year in his garage, I was weirdly cool with that. » 1/30/15 10:05pm Yesterday 10:05pm

Idiot Shocked Spare Tires Aren't Standard Anymore: #BoycottCadillac

There's a valuable lesson here. No matter how dedicated you are to the cause of I Don't Know Shit About Cars, sometimes it doesn't hurt to know just a little. Alternately, you could go full freakout like Jerry Ascione, and make a big deal out of the fact that you didn't know some cars have been getting rid of spare… » 1/30/15 9:05pm Yesterday 9:05pm

Secret message found inside WW2 bullet is the end to a very funny story

August, 13, 1944. The British 8th Army occupies Florence. The Allies finally break out of Normandy. Meanwhile, somewhere in the south of Tuscany, a soldier writes this encrypted message and hides it inside a bullet. In 2015, someone found it and deciphered it. It was the end of a hilariously absurd story. » 1/30/15 8:46pm Yesterday 8:46pm

Spyker Wins Appeal, Was Never Bankrupt According To The Law

I have to hand it to Victor Muller. When they were about to get evicted, he said everything will be fine. When Spyker's creditors pushed his company into bankruptcy, he told us it's not over yet. And it turns out he wasn't bluffing. Or at least not entirely. » 1/30/15 8:35pm Yesterday 8:35pm

Deadmau5 Is Replacing The 'Purrari' With A 'Nyanborghini Purracan'

American Canadian hero Deadmau5 isn't going to let a lame cease-and-desist order kill his love for memes, exotic cars, or grating puns. After Ferrari quashed his 458 Italia "Purrari," the EDM artist announced on Twitter he's replacing it with a Lamborghini Huracan in Nyan Cat livery. Not bad! » 1/30/15 7:35pm Yesterday 7:35pm

Why South American Truck Culture Just Might Be Better Than Ours

Here in the US, we've got some pretty great pickups and 4WD vehicles to choose from. We've also got plenty of cool communities to go on off-road adventures with. But after a month of driving trucks around South America, I'm starting to think they do trucks even better. Here's why. » 1/30/15 7:05pm Yesterday 7:05pm

This Is What It Looks Like To Land The Gargantuan C-5 Galaxy

The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy is the largest western military aircraft ever built, and fully loaded it can weigh nearly a million pounds. One of the most amazing, and troublesome, of its components are its finicky landing gear, especially the twin truck nose gear that kneels so cargo can be loaded via the Galaxy's front… » 1/30/15 6:35pm Yesterday 6:35pm

Of Course Flyin' Miata Will Stick A V8 Into The New Miata

"IT DOESN'T HAVE ENOUGH OF TEH POWER!!!1!" the naysayers will scream about the 2016 Mazda Miata, even though it sounds like an absolute delight as well as a marvel of modern weight-saving in engineering. But for the people who always want more, Flyin' Miata says they'll have them covered. » 1/30/15 5:12pm Yesterday 5:12pm

You Should Never Ever Ever Purchase A Manufacturer Buyback Vehicle

From time to time someone asks me what happens to all those lemons the manufacturers buy back from my clients. Or, sometimes, "Should I purchase a manufacturer buyback vehicle?" The answer – based on 23 years of work in the field – is a Taylor Swift-esque Never Ever Ever. » 1/30/15 4:58pm Yesterday 4:58pm
