For 2005, Honda started offering a hybrid version of the Accord with a V6 engine, a first in the segment.
I remember it like yesterday. The email came through in January of last year from Katherine Legge, telling me she’d hooked up with this fabulous new sponsor, TrueCar, but I couldn’t say a word about it until, unless the team she was joining was named. So I kept my trap shut and waited until, finally, Katherine was…
We've heard for a while that the McLaren P1 is going to be rocket fast. If new rumors are to be believed, it could be even faster than we originally thought. We're talking way faster than a GT3 racer fast.
I need to start this post with an apology. I'm sorry you're about to see this. You may want to send the kids into the other room; this might upset them.
When the McLaren F1 came out in 1992, standard equipment included a 627 horsepower BMW V12, air conditioning, electric windows and central locking, remote battery charging point with external charger, a flashlight in a tailored compartment next to the F1 Owner's Manual, a 10 CD Kenwood stereo system and a limited…
Y'all have heard, and have now seen, that we can repub posts from your personal Kinja sites to the front page of Jalopnik. It's a good thing for everyone and we're having a lot of fun with it thus far. Here are a few tips on how to get us to notice your fine work.
Of all the current BMWs we don't get in the U.S., my favorite is the M135i. You know, the hatchback with rear-wheel-drive and a turbocharged straight six good for 315 horsepower. The headlights are kind of goofy, but the rest of car is so awesome that I'd let that slide.
Following the success of the Gymkhana series, which have racked up nearly 200 million total views on Youtube, DC Shoes is looking to promote their other brands in a similar fashion. The DC Moto TeamWorks line, originally released in 2007, is the next target of this video marketing and branding scheme, debuting the…
A Florida woman was driving down the turnpike to Miami last Thursday when she hit a Great Horned Owl. Though it was trapped behind the SUV's grill for a full day, the bird was not harmed.
Drama! There’s loads of drama on tap in the electric car world between the New York Times and Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk over the Times’ recent test of a Model S. Now, the reporter who wrote the damning piece has fired back against Musk’s claim that the story was “fake.”
I like my drag racing uphill, in the snow, with at least two weels in the air for most of the run.
About a year ago McLaren contacted me saying that they'd seen some of my photos and were impressed, would I like to come to the factory and meet them? Fast forward to last week and I was on a flight to Bahrain writing out a shot list for a photo shoot of a McLaren P1 on the Bahrain International Circuit.
My first question is whether you would not buy this, or not buy the A 45 AMG? You got my drift, since the 2014 Audi S3 Sportback is not coming to the 'States either...
A select few celebrities are really great drivers. But then there's the other group: The terrible celebrity drivers. What cars should a noted crasher like Lindsay Lohan never own?
Gosh, it's been a long time since Lamborghini gave the world a front-engined car. Technically, the last one was the monstrous LM002 SUV, but the last front-engine cars were the Espada and Jarama way back in the late 1970s.
If you buy the right car, you can look like your paycheck has an extra zero at the end. Thankfully, Jalopnik readers know ten cars that are perfect for the job.
Ford recently made a presentation to show its product plans for the next few years. They fastidiously blacked out every single new car that's coming down the pipeline to keep prying eyes from getting a glance. But it seems like the man in charge forgot one, because this is a little picture of the brand new Ford Edge.…
Since 1977, Toyota has pitted race car drivers against the stars in their Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race. It's all for charity, it's only 10 laps, and they do it in fairly innocuous cars like the Celica and Scion tC. Until now.
