This Is You Showing Us Your Best

A few weeks ago, we started doing listicles using the "Show Us ________" title format. It's a bit like Question Of The Day, but we leave these open.

2013 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster: The Jalopnik Review

Topless supercars have come a long way since Lamborghini first chopped the roof off a Diablo, transforming it from merely sketchy to highly suspect. Back then, convertible versions were just a means to hoover up dumb money, a nod to buyers just barely more likely to take a V12 sports car to its limits than arrive in… » 2/11/13 2:21pm 2/11/13 2:21pm

Ferrari F150 Debut Announcement On Official Ferrari Instagram Is False…

Yesterday Ferrari announced on its official Instagram page that the Enzo-replacing F150 hypercar will debut at the Geneva Motor Show. There is just one problem with that: We just spoke to Ferrari, and they don't have an official Instagram page. Uh oh. » 2/11/13 2:17pm 2/11/13 2:17pm

The brand is thought by many to be second-tier, the "knock off" to… » 2/10/13 3:49pm 2/10/13 3:49pm

Florida Man Steals Golf Cart From Nudist Colony After Failed Lowes…

I have absolutely nothing against Florida at all. It's a nice place with nice beaches. My Grandma used to live there. I went to a great Waffle House in Ocala once. It has Disney World.
