You can't really be a gearhead if you don't love Citroën. I'm not saying you have to buy one, but you have to at least appreciate the gonzo-ass cars that have rolled off their assembly lines over the years, like the 2CV, the DS, and more recently, the C6. Beautiful, bizarre, unique and high-tech.
This may seem hard to believe, but the current Mercedes-Benz S-Class bowed way back in 2005. Eight years is forever in car time, but the S still looks pretty classy and striking on the road. A new one is apparently on the horizon. Is this mule a preview of what's to come?
Today is the Nationwide Series' run at Daytona, the Drive4COPD 300. It's a pack racing affair. And like any pack race, there are big crashes. Including one on the final lap that put an engine nearly in the grandstand.
No doubt you've heard of NISMO, Nissan's subsidiary responsible for going racing and putting garish bodykits on 370Zs. Nissan says some big changes are on the horizon for NISMO that will be made public on Monday. What could it be?
Sadly, we Americans don't get the latest version of the BMW 1 Series, which is a hatchback in Europe. So what's going to happen to the coupe and convertible 1-er that we do get? More than likely, it will become this: the 2 Series. You know, as in smaller than a 3 but bigger than a 1.
On its own, the K-Car Chrysler Town & Country is a pretty sweet little 1980s wagon. But what happens when you mix in all the goodies from the Dodge Neon SRT-4? Vehicular insanity, that's what.

One thing I love about the gearhead community is its diversity. Car guys and gals come in all shapes and sizes, as do the cars they drive. You've got the import faithful, the muscle car folks, the donk people, the weekend racers, and everything in between. It's a great place to be.
I chapped a few asses last year when I said the BMW M1 ranked among the most overrated cars of all time. If you weren't happy about that, I'm about to make it up to you with this video.
The 2013 NASCAR season officially kicks off tomorrow with the Daytona 500, and the man who will wave the green flag to start the race is one of the most beloved men in all of professional sports: now-retired Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, we have a tale of modern love — Florida style.
After we exclusively revealed shots of the new Jeep Cherokee rolling off the assembly line, Chrysler released the official shots of the vehicle a few hours later and ahead of schedule. The reaction to the car — particularly its nose and headlights — hasn't been as positive as the Mopar folks probably wanted. But the…
Lee Iacocca spent much of the 1980s bitching about import cars on TV and imploring that his K-cars were better than anything that came from Germany or Japan, let alone Ford or General Motors. "If you can find a better car, buy it," he told people. Sometimes they did.
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway denies its for sale. Sent the denial out on the back-side of the press release they used to deny Randy Bernard would not be fired as IndyCar CEO [He was. Within days].
Welcome to the Jalopnik Weekend Motorsports Roundup, where we let you know what's going on in the world of racing, where you can see it, and talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?
CUVs. We all love to hate them. But the fact is, they aren't going away any time soon. We're stuck with them. And as much as we hate to admit it, that may not be the worst thing in the world. They may be less efficient in some ways than a straight wagon, but they're convincing people to ditch the truck-bodied…
Remember when we showed you those photos of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee like, earlier today? If you doubted they were real, doubt no more. Jeep suddenly (and without telling us) released images of the new Cherokee with a short press release. Happy Friday!
So Watkins Glen put's on this event every year in September, The SVRA Vintage Gran Prix. I never heard anything about it till last year, and it immediately sparked my intrest. Vintage Race cars? Racing? Sign me up for that.
To many people, the Toyota Avalon is the most boring car in the world.
You’ll forgive this open ended question, because I heard of some engineering today that will make your heart weep.
