This is Nick van de Wall. He is a DJ and a music producer from the Netherlands. He goes by the name of Afrojack. This is his crashed Ferrari 458 Italia. And this is the life lesson he learned today.
The government would love to keep you from knowing any of this. If they had it their way, Jalopnik would be shut down and I'd be thrown into one of the secret gulags the Department of the Treasury operates inside Roosevelt's nostrils on Mt.Rushmore. But I won't keep quiet anymore. I'm gonna blow the lid off this…
One mystery muscle car. One helmet cam. One closed, dirt Colorado canyon road. This is American hillclimbing.
I expect my whiskey flask to do three things: be discreet, provide me with enough liquid courage to get through the day, and shield my heart from an assassin's bullet like on TV. (I have a lot of enemies, you know.) But if you spend $900 on a flask, what guarantee do you have that it's tough and ready for battle?…

The lyrics will forevermore be seared into my brain: The only way to travel is Cadillac style. Some people want more. Not just a little bit. This is your life, you're the only one who's living it. Let's go. Let's live. Let's love every mile. The only way to travel is Cadillac Style.

Buying a car is never a rational process. When it comes to picking up something old, weird, and kind of terrible, things get extra-irrational.
The car industry is set up to reserve its best features for its top-level cars, mostly because they want you to pay more for better options (and because those options are more expensive). Here are the features Jalopnik readers think should filter down to more mainstream models.
Yes, you can own your very own Ferrari Formula One test car right now for the low, low price of $24,999! There's only small catch: It's one half the size of a normal F1 car. Get it? "Small catch?" God, I'm good at what I do.
The West Side Highway is a pretty nutty road to begin with. You've got lots of crazies from NJ and northern NY coming south into lower Manhattan and Brooklyn, and then you've got all kinds of Brooklyn and Manhattan yahoos heading North to escape the city. Add narrow lanes, off-kilter bumps and humps, and you've got a…
Just look at that rear! We already knew Ken Block just ain't care about fire, but this is whole new level of plastic melting. Ford Eco-what?
A couple of weeks ago the Pagani Huayra set the fastest ever lap time around the Top Gear Test Track by a whopping 1.3 seconds. That's huge. Now, photos have surfaced that call the entire lap into question. It appears that the Huayra may have been shod with hand-cut slick tires. Uh oh. (UPDATE: Pagani responds!)
