Hennessey Will Build A 717 HP Ford Mustang For The Price Of A Hellcat

We live in a golden age of accessible and insanely overpowered muscle cars. There's the Corvette Z06 making 650 HP, and of course there's the 707 HP SRT Hellcat. But what about those poor bastards who made childhood promises to only drive Fords? Who's thinking of them? John Hennesey is, with his 717 HP Mustang. » 10/01/14 10:00am 5 minutes ago

The Average Bugatti Owner Has Three Jets, One Yacht, And 84 (!!!) Cars

VW's Ads Were Once Gloriously Delusional

Before VW's famous, understated and witty DDB ad campain from the '60s, they weren't that different from any car maker when it came to advertising. That means they didn't necessarily feel so restricted by pesky, silly ideas like "the picture of the car looks like the one you're selling."

The Fiat 500X And The Jeep Renegade Aren't "Male And Female" Versions

I'm not exactly sure what an "automotive analyst" does, but they have 'anal' in their job title, and that's good enough for me. One automotive analyst, though, is pushing the same tired car-gendering crap I'm sick of, so let's talk about that. » 9/30/14 7:00pm Yesterday 7:00pm

Watch This BMW M4 Nearly Slam Into A Ton Of Cars At The Nurburgring

The Green Hell possesses, bar none, the most absolutely terrifying traffic in the world. On days when it's open to the public, everyone from the greatest driver in the world to the positively worst, can show up in any car in the world. Which means there are crashes. Mix that with blind corners, and you've got a recipe… » 9/30/14 4:44pm Yesterday 4:44pm
