I Bought The Top Gear Merkur XR4Ti

It's been a bad secret for the last few months, but I thought I should let everyone know, officially, that I am the proud owner of the most famous Merkur XR4Ti in the world. This is similar to having the world's most famous spaetzle press in that it's not particularly impressive, vaguely German, and a completely… » 2/25/13 3:02pm 2/25/13 3:02pm

Watch An Audi A1 Gymkhana All Over Munich

There are many great cars that we don't get to buy here in America. One of those great cars is the Audi A1 quattro, a hyper version of the cute little city car. This is what we're missing. » 2/25/13 2:33pm 2/25/13 2:33pm

This Honduran Subaru Nut Writes Awesome How-To Manuals

When you own an old, no-longer-popular beater car, it can sometimes be difficult to find parts and information. My brand of automotive pain/pleasure currently lies in the realm of obsolete Subarus, and while they do have a decent following, they've never attracted the kind of money-spewing fanboys that, say, small… » 2/25/13 2:23pm 2/25/13 2:23pm

A Turbine-Powered Hydrofoil Gunboat? Why, Yes!

The Sixties were great enough with all the spaceships and supercars but did you know Boeing made a turbine-powered hydrofoil gunboat for the U.S. Navy?

2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible: The Jalopnik Review

With its highest horsepower and lowest suspension, the GT Speed is Bentley's most athletic production car. But what happens when you chop off the roof? Does it retain the qualities that make the Continental such a great ultra GT — its momentousness and poise — or is there just too much rarified air blowing into that… » 2/25/13 1:15pm 2/25/13 1:15pm

Elon Musk Thinks The New York Times Cost Tesla $100 Million

Over the last few weeks, Tesla has waged an interesting PR war after a New York Times test drive ended with a Model S on a flatbed. Now, days after an offer to bury the hatchet with the Times, Tesla CEO Elon Musk says that review cost his company $100 million. That hatchet must not have been buried very deep. » 2/25/13 12:20pm 2/25/13 12:20pm

These Guys Are Turning Dead Cars Into Living Bikes

Normally, seeing a video'd junkyard crammed full of hulks of vintage Citroëns and Fiat 600s makes me want to hop on a plane and save each and every one of them like some soft-hearted kook at the animal shelter. That's generally not possible, but what these folks over at Lola Madrid are doing with these basket-case… » 2/25/13 12:00pm 2/25/13 12:00pm

Ford Might Create Some Sort Of Ranger Truck Replacement After All

A lightweight, compact Ford truck? That's a big maybe. When our own Jason Torchinsky chatted with Ford's J Mays at the Detroit Auto Show last month, Mays pretty much told him not noway, not nohow. But word around the campfire is that Ford may be considering something more practical than the monstrous pickups which… » 2/25/13 10:26am 2/25/13 10:26am
