I’m barreling down Interstate 35 just south of Austin, Texas in a sand-colored 1969 BMW 1600, headed for a long weekend of questionable choices and hazy recollections on South Padre Island. I had only owned the car, my first old BMW, for six months or so, and I was still getting to know the eccentricities, but the…
Night falls, drawing yet another day of the fighting to a close. You lean your head back against the Ram Rebel TRX Concept’s headrest and close your eyes, lulled by the engine’s grumble. You loosen up the six-point harness slightly. It’s safe, but it makes it hard to reach for your gun.
Hot on the wheels of Audi’s announcement of the fast, quintuple-banger RS3 sedan, Audi has just revealed the RS3 LMS racecar based on the new RS3 sedan. It looks like the RS3's evil supervillian version, and, at around $110-$130,000, it’s one of the cheapest ways to get into a genuine racecar.
If your car takes synthetic oil, and you like to change it yourself, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better deal than $11 for five quarts of Mobil 1 synthetic oil, complete with Prime shipping. You’ll need to send in your receipt to get a $12 mail-in rebate, but for this price, it’s worth the hassle. A few oil weights…
You like blades and edges and that crazy Predator grille? That is literally what the Lexus UX Compact Crossover is made of. What a scary machine! I am deeply afraid of this car.
What have you done with your truck lately, bro? That “Trail Rated” badge doesn’t mean jack if the wildest place it goes is the Whole Foods parking lot. Here’s a dude tackling the Hell’s Revenge trail in Moab in a lightly modified Subaru Legacy. Weep in shame at his mad skills, mall crawlers.
How much power does the new turbocharged 2017 Ford Raptor really make? A couple weeks ago we caught some dealer documents that indicated it puts out 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque, a nice and healthy bump from the old V8. Now we know that’s true, officially and forever.
This week electrovehicle and space transit magnate Elon Musk unveiled his master plan for the human race to become “a multi-planetary species”, starting with travel to Mars. But while I know it’s an act of remarkable hubris for me to even say this, I believe SpaceX’s plans for their Interplanetary Transport System…
Ferrari turns 70 next year, and to celebrate, the company will offer 350 special edition cars— five different vehicles painted in 70 liveries dedicated to the most famous Ferrari drivers in history. Here are a couple of those liveries.
Racing Formula One is like being inside a fighter jet that’s zipping through impossibly winding roads at 200 MPH. There’s a lot going on. Piloting a powerful race car through the twisting roads requires a steering wheel that can control and handle all those changes on the fly. It also makes for a steering wheel that…
Hyundai’s brand new N-division seems to be honoring the secret request of every hoser who’s mispronounced the marque’s name as “Hoon-day.” Their new racing-focused concept isn’t just a preview of N-cars to come, but a caged track beast with Lambo doors that I would spend many days hooning if given the chance.
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.
Just look at this thing. Take your eyes, and look at it. Because it is marvelous.
For some reason, BMW has decided the world needs a car between its X1 small crossover and its X3 Also-Small Crossover. So here’s another small crossover for when a small crossover and a small crossover just aren’t enough. It’s the BMW Concept X2, and it looks angry, like it wants you to die.
A New Jersey Transit commuter train smashed through a wall at the Hoboken Terminal train station in Hoboken, New Jersey. Three people are confirmed to have died, and at least 100 people have been injured, according to the local ABC affiliate.
Mercedes wants to be at the very top of the luxury electric vehicle category by 2025, so today, it showed the world a zany looking crossover that will form the foundation of a new brand called “EQ.” The thing looks bonkers, but I don’t care because just look at the power and range numbers.
