The 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is ridiculous...

The Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcat is getting a lot of press these days. But what about Dodge’s other monsters? I was amazed by the 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack with a 6.4L Hemi V8, 485 horsepower, and a starting price around $38K. So much car for so little dough... Patrick George had a dandy time with… » 10/24/14 1:50pm 14 minutes ago

The Jalopnik Film Festival Is Sold Out, Sorry

Well, you can't say we didn't warn you. Despite expanding from one screen for one showing to an entire theater for two screenings we've still run out of seats for this year's film festival two weeks early. If you didn't get a ticket we'll still be having a party at the theater (details to come) and you can still buy a… » 10/24/14 1:43pm 21 minutes ago

Swedes Call Off Hunt For Mystery Sub

Sweden has been hunting for some sort of mystery... something, in its waters for about a week now. They never were entirely sure what it was, but the best guess was that it was a small Russian submarine. We may never find out now, though, because Sweden just called off the search. » 10/24/14 1:28pm 36 minutes ago

The Six Coolest Unreliable Cars You Can Get With a CarMax Warranty

Next week marks a huge milestone in the life of my used Range Rover: 90 days without any major problems. Oh, sure, there have been minor problems, like the battery was dying, and the rear brake pads were worn, and a few exterior lights had gone out. But nothing that required the use of my CarMax warranty. » 10/24/14 1:14pm 50 minutes ago

Will I Get Ebola On The Subway? A Breathless Explainer

Ebola is spreading rapidly throughout America, as two nurses who helped a disease-stricken man in Dallas are generally reported to be doing okay and have not infected anyone else. And one doctor in New York has it. Clearly, this is a time for mass panic. You can get Ebola nowhere everywhere, and definitely not on the… » 10/24/14 12:12pm Today 12:12pm

Looks Like The 2015 Honda CR-V's AWD System Doesn't Work At All

The automotive myth-busters and "moose test" inventing Swedes at Teknikens Värld set up a little climb for the 2015 Honda CR-V to see how it'd move out with no traction on the drive wheels. It failed miserably. » 10/24/14 12:00pm Today 12:00pm

The Dodge Viper ACR Returns To Strike Fear At Your Next Track Day

For a good 10 years, the Dodge Viper ACR was the hardest, nastiest, trackiest Viper you could track. Lighter, stiffer, and more stripped out than a normal Viper, it was a true beast. But the current-gen Viper has yet to get an American Club Racing variant — until now. » 10/24/14 11:51am Today 11:51am

The Mustang built with ridiculousness.(vid)

IMSA GTP. Add one big drop of Zakspeed Capri from Germany, and add Ford USA trying to make a front engined GTP car. It was ruthless for sure. It had power, and lightness, and it took no prisoners, especially of it's own engineers. Overall, It sucked and the lead engineer said it was the worst project he ever worked… » 10/24/14 10:50am Today 10:50am

My Dinner With Some Dodge And SRT Engineers

This past week I managed to spend some time with the new lineup of Chargers and the engineers that helped make them. Though they rejected my offers to provide dinner, I did manage to sit down with them for a meal and a series of inane questions, delivered with intensity and a light mist of masticated food. » 10/24/14 10:45am Today 10:45am
