Most know the Mercedes-Benz G-Class as an ostentatious machine that sells for roughly the same price as a small house, drives sort of like a tank and binges on gasoline like a Dyson does on hairballs. But only part of that statement is always true.
We all see things while driving that cause genuine bafflement, sometimes. It may be a person driving while trailing a forgotten gas pump hose, or perhaps a person driving while playing a game of dashboard Jenga, or even someone driving one of those Nissan Murano convertible things. This one, though, spotted by a guy…
Ric’s Nissan Leaf works just fine for slogging through Seattle traffic, but the EV is having some unseen side effects on his soul, which longs for a vehicle that isn’t just a “transportation pod.” What car should he buy?
Sunglass Warehouse has some of the best pricing out there, but they’ve amped it up this week. Their clearance section is already full of deeply discounted shades, but use the code KINJASALE40 and get an additional 40% off. That means you can grab pairs for as low as $2, so you really have no excuse not to get a backup.
A van drove into crowds of people at Barcelona’s popular Las Ramblas pedestrian area in what police are describing as a terrorist attack, reports the BBC. Officials have confirmed 13 dead and 80 injured following the attack, per the latest numbers reported by the CBC. Two suspects have been arrested in conjunction…
I’ve never seen anything else that epitomizes the spirit of Hoon of the Day so well as Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham’s attempts (plural) to hoon a Polaris RZR. Between the safety-third setup with no brakes and the total unwillingness of Wheelz to get discouraged by a pesky little roll, this is an epic hoon reel.
A man driving a stolen Honda Accord (the most stolen car in the U.S.) in California reached the pinnacle of human stupidity when he decided to ask a deputy for directions. The officer obliged, but also ran the car’s tags (because no shit). A police chase ensued (because again, no shit). And the man was arrested (yep,…
A commonly held view toward self-driving cars is that, once the vehicles become fully-automated, a steering wheel and pedals are no longer be needed. Ford appears to be taking an interesting approach to the idea, with a new patent that allows for removable parts that could be plopped back in with ease.
Currently I’m in California for Monterey Car Week but with a couple of free days before the main events, I wanted to get a taste of the local car scene here. Naturally that led me to the Sunset Plaza GT meet on Sunday morning. Let’s just say I’m a long way from Japan in more ways than one.
The 1969 Chevy Impala is a gem and, if I owned one, I wouldn’t have the slightest intention of letting someone drive it without me around, save maybe for my mother. For whatever reason, a Michigan man felt differently and, while trying to sell the car to a prospective buyer on Craigslist, let the individual take it…
We’ve seen pictures of the disguised Jeep Wrangler Pickup before, but it’s an exciting thing, so I’m happy to show more leaked pictures of it when we get them. This picture is from inside an FCA facility, which is why I’ve obscured some of the background around the Jeep truck.
Pro racing drivers compete on circuits all over the world, and World Rallycross driver Andreas Bakkerud definitely makes the best of it with his too-delightful “Snakkerud” vlogs. He’s so dedicated to snacking, he makes a point to try local treats whenever possible, and the food reviews are a joy.
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 while you sit back and try to coffee yourself awake. Don’t spill it on your computer.
Earlier this month, Elio Motors announced that it aimed to raise up to $100 million as part of a proposed public offering—and the company’s latest report to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission shows the funding is sorely needed: Elio has $40,000 in cash remaining, according to the company’s semiannual report.
BMW broke all our hearts a little bit in 2014 when it said that the sports car market was dying. But with the whole Toyota-Supra partnership and now a sparkling new Z4 concept at Monterey Car Week, we feel some retribution coming for those hurtful words spoken in the past.
Today, put some class in your life. Consider selling everything you own to buy a pristine A70 Toyota Supra.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
