This Rolls Royce With A Viper Engine Is My New Dream Car

What Are Rivets For, Anyway?

As America's Arsenal for Democracy shifted its Nazi-ass-kicking apparatus into high gear during WWII, the rivet reigned supreme as the fastener of choice for heavy manufacturing. Everything from buildings and bridges to planes, tanks, and automobiles were stuck together with rivets, fastened into place by air… » 2/26/13 4:03pm 2/26/13 4:03pm

RideApart Review: Honda NC700X

Since its launch in August, we’ve ridden the Honda NC700X on both street and track and come away impressed with its jack-of-all-trades ability. At just $7,499 and averaging 64mpg, it’s one of the most practical, economical bikes there is. Not bad for something that shares its chassis and motor with a scooter. But, is… » 2/26/13 1:30pm 2/26/13 1:30pm

Watch As This Tank Falls Off A Truck In Belarus

The best part of this video is not the tank slowly but surely slipping off its platform truck. It's the soldier laughing at the whole scene. » 2/26/13 3:32pm 2/26/13 3:32pm

Why Did The Grey Poupon Oscars Ad Makers Disguise The Rolls-Royces?

As usual, the biggest take-away from the Oscars this year was America's continued love affair with mustard. We've got the Yellow Fever bad, and the Grey Poupon commercial that aired during the Oscars just confirmed that with its huge popularity.  That Grey Poupon commercial was, of course, based on a 1988 original,… » 2/26/13 3:00pm 2/26/13 3:00pm

Poor Kid Gets His Bike Shoved Up His Ass And Now It's All Over The Web

Man, I feel for this kid. Somewhere in China, it was the first day of school, and our hapless unnamed student is happily riding his bike, his mind presumably full of hope for the coming year, and likely not at all worried about people all over the world reading about the bicycle up his ass. That was his first mistake. » 2/26/13 2:50pm 2/26/13 2:50pm

Why You Should Brake With Your Left Foot

Most of my “How To Drive Fast” column is, unsurprisingly, about how to drive fast. As well as posing techniques, some of my pieces offer a glimpse into the inner-workings of motorsport, while others are just plain ridiculous. Siphoning through the bunch, you’ll notice I haven’t much talked about safety. So let’s start… » 2/26/13 2:00pm 2/26/13 2:00pm

Dad Arrested For Leaving His Kid In The Truck At A Titty Bar

Generally speaking, children and bars are a bad combination. And even though small children tend to love breasts, their appreciation of them is quite different from the average strip club patron's, so nudie bars are out, too. But that didn't stop 24-year-old SoCal resident Santos Barillas from bringing his 2-year-old… » 2/26/13 1:48pm 2/26/13 1:48pm

The velocity stacks on Steve McQueen’s chestnut brown 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso. This is what you got when you had money to blow on cars fifty years ago: lots and lots of little exposed screws. You like, yes? » 2/26/13 1:32pm 2/26/13 1:32pm

This Is Another Awesome Way To Use A Land Rover

This is Stuart Lewis-Evans and Tony Harris in September 1953, lowering their Cooper 500 Formula 3 racing car from the roof of a Land Rover at the Crystal Palace race circuit. Awesome doesn't even describe it. » 2/26/13 1:11pm 2/26/13 1:11pm

Awesome Dad Lets His 11-Year-Old Son Test Race Cars

This is Kalle Rovanperä. His dad lets him get behind the wheel of rally cars and fling himself through the forest at speeds you wouldn’t dare. Child endangerment? More like awesome parenting. » 2/26/13 1:00pm 2/26/13 1:00pm

Will.I.Am Says He Builds His Custom Cars To 'Teach Kids Science'

Last week we saw Will.I.Am's custom 1958 VW Beetle that supposedly cost $900,000 to build over the course of four years. Why does he do it? To "teach kids science." Yes, science. » 2/26/13 12:45pm 2/26/13 12:45pm

Why I Drive Into Blizzards For Fun

Why am I pointing the wrong way on a freeway, in the middle of Snowstorm Nemo, in a car with no heat, no defroster, no snow tires, and no four-wheel drive? Why am I laughing? Because sometimes the worst drives are the best. » 2/26/13 12:00pm 2/26/13 12:00pm

What Supercar/Exotic Car Technology Should Be In Regular Cars?

See What Happens When Fast & Furious and Forza Horizon 2 Collide
