This Flapping Device Makes Electricity From Wind Rushing Past Your Car

As far as car accessories go, we have to admit this one looks pretty silly. But the Samsung scientists who made it could also be onto something. The flapping tongues inside are actually coated with gold, and when they rub up against a smooth plate, electricity is created through something called the triboelectric… » 9/23/14 10:42pm 3 minutes ago

Airlines Want WiFi So Bad They're Willing To Tear Entire Planes Apart

Today we learned that airlines view WiFi as integral to the whole "flight" experience as the very wings on the airplane itself, but it's one thing to hear about it from an industry perspective, and another to see that sort of manic desire for Internet in action. So watch United Airlines take this whole plane apart for… » 9/23/14 10:04pm 41 minutes ago

The Woman In This 70s French VW Manual Looks Like She's In A Movie

This manual shouldn't be this interesting at all. It's a comprehensive operations manual for a 1974 VW Super Beetle, covering some really basic stuff — how to start the car, how to shift, how to use the indicators — but the model they chose and the way she's been shot make these images look like something from French… » 9/23/14 8:05pm Today 8:05pm

The 2015 Audi TT And TTS Roadster: These Are Them

We first saw the 2015 Audi TT in hardtop form way back in March, but let's be honest here. There is no Audi TT without the convertible, soft top option you see scooting all over the suburbs of the world. So here it is, finally making its debut. And with the hotter TTS version, too. » 9/23/14 7:09pm Today 7:09pm

This Gobstopper Subaru Onboard Will Make You Want To Move To The UK

Yes, this is a fantastic stripped, caged, and race-prepped Subaru (the great Gobstopper II). Yes, this is a fantastic driver (Roger Clark). And yes, this is a fantastic onboard (the fastest lap yet of the circuit). That's fine, but I'm going to need to drive this racetrack now. » 9/23/14 6:11pm Today 6:11pm

2015 Saleen 302 Black Label Will Be A 640 HP Superstang

Saleen's been one of everyone's favorite Mustang-modifiers for years, and we now know all the juicy numbers for the 2015 S302, and have a nice view of it from the side. The big news is that in supercharged form, the S302 will put out a very healthy 640 HP — that's about one BRZ more HP than a stock 2015 Mustang. » 9/23/14 5:37pm Today 5:37pm

How Would You Configure Your Mercedes GLA45 AMG?

The greatest trick Mercedes ever pulled was convincing Americans that a hatchback was a crossover. Mercedes didn't give us the A-class, but we do get its lifted cousin with "respectable" ground clearance. They will end up selling/leasing a crap-load of them. What would yours look like? » 9/23/14 4:21pm Today 4:21pm

If Lotus Died in America, Would Anyone Really Care?

So yesterday the Internet was abuzz with the devastating news that sports car manufacturer Lotus is pulling out of the U.S. road car market, temporarily. When I first heard this news, I was shocked; I was surprised; I was STUNNED, mainly because I thought this already happened like four years ago. » 9/23/14 4:05pm Today 4:05pm

Rejoice, The Lotus Evora Will Return To America In 2016

Beleaguered British sports car manufacturer Lotus is down, but they want to make it clear they are not out yet. The company has issued a statement to hit the brakes on reports that the Lotus Evora, their last street legal car, will bow out of the U.S. forever next year. It's actually just taking a one year break. » 9/23/14 3:53pm Today 3:53pm

2015 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG: This Is It (And Holy Crap 503 HP)

The last Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG was one of our favorite cars, a tire-smoking V8 monster with ridiculous power for days. But there's a new C-Class out now, so how will AMG improve upon it? Simple: by giving the twin-turbo V8 from the Mercedes-AMG GT. Meet the new C63 AMG. (Update: WAGON!) » 9/23/14 2:24pm Today 2:24pm
