Only nine 1997 McLaren F1 GTR LT “Longtails” ever existed, and this one still works for a living. Coming off the track to a different kind of competition on the Concours car show lawn involved the most intense detail job I’ve ever heard of. Watch close, you’ll learn a lot!
Technology company Nvidia developed a system that allows a car to learn how to drive itself by essentially being a working, thinking passenger to a human driver, according to Tech Crunch. Cool technology. Great. But did anyone listen when the Terminator movies warned us not to let machines learn things?
Yesterday, Elon Musk warned us that his grand vision to send humans to Mars wouldn’t be without danger—in fact, he said, “The probability of death is quite high on the first mission.” Now, with what can only be described as perfect timing (or great marketing), two Dutch companies are claiming they’ve created a hearse…
We all thought the new 2017 Land Rover Discovery was going to be a suburban yuppie-mobile with weak, sad off-roading abilities. While the first part of that clause is undoubtedly true, Land Rover has dropped the full details on the new Disco, and it looks like off-road capability is going to be more than just “okay.”…
Fun fact: these are all actually from just one quarter-mile drag race.
Looks like it’s happening: Mercedes just confirmed that it will build the AMG F1 hypercar today during a press conference at the Paris Motor Show. The Germans are saying it will actually be inspired by Formula One, and that it’s not just some marketing bullcrap. In fact, they’re saying it will use the whole powertrain…

Ride-hailing company Uber wants to be able to fly you to work and back—or anywhere else in the city—within about a decade. The company is researching how to use helicopter-like aircraft to pick customers up, with landing pads potentially on top of buildings. This will definitely work without a single problem. Totally.
Ladies and gentlemen, I have seen a glimpse of heaven. Beater heaven.
I’m finally into Grand Theft Auto Online. It took me a while. The game launched in late 2013, though I’m not sure I could have been excited for it sooner. What’d it take? Two nights of chaos and a revelation about what Rockstar’s multiplayer game actually is.
Looks like General Motors accidentally posted some specs on its new heavy duty pickup Duramax diesel engine over the weekend, and it’s got five horsepower on Ford’s Power Stroke. If these numbers are accurate Ford will hold the line on peak torque, but Chevy will still be making a big step up on stock output.
Volkswagen spent years trying to make diesel as big in America as it was in Europe and other markets. Then it got caught cheating in a very big way. Racked with scandal, fines and lawsuits, the German automaker is now trying to chart a new way forward. This is the rolling electric symbol of that new way, and it’s…
Adam Savage is one of my favorite lunatic engineers, so I was a little surprised when he took on a project as basic as putting an inflatable movie screen in the back of a pickup. But damn that is one seriously sweet chair-holding cargo box.
Hello, fellow Wealths. I see you’ve done well for yourself, what with capital gains and all, moving beyond horse dancing and into rhino waltzing. I, too, have moved on to stratospheric new heights, ditching my Aston Martin car for peasants and poors. I am in my new Aston Martin boat. That is a picture of me.
Your favorite USB car charger just happens to be the smallest one you can buy, and you can grab it on Amazon for $8 today with code A2CHARGE (black) or A3CHARGE (white). We’ve seen it go as low as $6 on a few occasions, but this is the best deal we’ve seen in about a year, if it’s been on your wish list.
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.
Yesterday, billionaire tech entrepreneur and noted late guy Elon Musk unveiled his hotly-anticipated plan to send humans to live—and die—on Mars. And not just a few humans: a lot of them. In a talk that wavered between overreaching science fair presentation and straight-up science fiction, Musk described sending…
