There seems to be an unavoidable connection between being a producer of cars and being a producer of atrocities. It's not that suddenly being around cars sends you on a muderous rampage, it just seems that if you your country has gotten to the point in its development where it can produce automobiles, it's also…
Earlier today we showed you the first pictures of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee. It's the most daring Jeep design I've ever seen. But will all that daring make it a success or a failure?
The folks at Lethal Performance say this 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 is the quickest of its kind in the world. To prove it, they brought us this video, complete with foreboding Hans Zimmer-eqsue music, slow camera pans over the car, and of course, some insane drag strip launches.
There's a little known service in America. For a small fee, you can apply a sticker, called a "stamp," to a piece of paper and send it anywhere in the nation. This is known as "the mail." Now there are stickers that look like cars you can put on these sheets of paper. Color us excited.
Back in the '80s, you could pick up a muscle car or a huge, rear-drive American land yacht for next to nothing. Of course people thrashed these things like a beater Nissan.
As we head into the 55th running of the Daytona 500, let's revisit one of the moments that put NASCAR on the map. The current drivers that were chosen to comment on this historic battle are pretty fitting.
For the second time on my trip to India, I find myself entering a building and having a chain of flowers draped over my neck as a woman paints a mark on my forehead, and then showers me in flower petals. I never really know what to do in these situations, afraid that as soon as I open my mouth they'll realize the…
The main way that most of us saw the crazy asteroid in Russia the other day was via dash cams mounted in cars. And even more amazingly, jaded Russian drivers didn't seem to care. If you watch this report from the Daily Show, you'll see why.
Icy conditions on the runway at Hopkins International Airport caused a United Airlines 737 to slide off the runway this morning, according to news reports.
Most car names are nouns. A Note. A Mustang. A Probe. Sometimes they're proper nouns and named after places you'd probably never see such a car driven, like the Sorento. Occasionally, you'll get something that can be a verb, like the Juke. All words that make sense in English. And then you get names that are utter…
Every space mission is exceedingly ambitious, but Jalopnik readers know ten that stand above the rest, even if they never got off the ground.
Remember last year when we told you about the Texas State Trooper who shot at a truck full of illegal immigrants from a helicopter, killing two people inside? Yeah, they're not allowed to do that anymore.
Just look at it! Red leatherette, an aluminum shifter knob, a bit of chrome and fake wood here and there, a lovely three-spoke steering wheel and two massive dials telling you what's the deal. Carlo Abarth knew how to rock.
I'm going to go ahead and postulate that this won't buff right out.
We've seen development mules of the next small Jeep crossover/SUV parading around for months. In our minds it was the 2014 Liberty, just wearing an Alfa Romeo Giulietta body but was also a good bit taller. Through these exclusive photos we've learned two things. First, it won't look anything like an Alfa. Second, it…
If you've ever been in a Walmart, then you've seen those little mobility scooters that help disabled folks get around. You've probably also wanted to steal one yourself and take a little joyride. Well, one Indianapolis-area man got drunk, stole one of those scooters, and took a joyride. For six miles.
Two no-thrills eco hatchbacks for the European market. Which one would you take?
