There are a lot of people in sports car racing that aren’t there because of talent. They’re there because they have money and want to go fast. We call them ‘gentleman drivers.’ Most of the time you find them driving a Porsche or a Ferrari. Now there’s another choice: The Aston Martin Vantage GT4. What’s it like to…
Whatever experience you are used to with a normal car — your Camry, your CR-V, your Taurus, your whatever. This Alfa 4C is the opposite of that.
Rather than make this a straightforward review of the 2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed, which sounds dreadfully boring, I'm simply going to list all the things that make it completely, utterly ridiculous — in a good way.
Forget dumb alphanumerics. Eldorado Jr. That's what we should be calling the ATS Coupe.
Last week, the General Motors company sent me one of their Corvette Stingrays. Only unlike every other Stingray I've driven so far, this one had two pedals instead of three. Normally, this outcome would plunge me into a deep existential crisis, like when I drove that automatic Mazda Miata over the summer. This time…
There's really only two things you need to know about the 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat: it may be the most American car you can buy right now, and it's absolutely, unrepentantly clamshit insane. The idea of a well-appointed four-door family car with enough power to liquify everyone you love is crazy. And wonderful. But…
The introduction of the simply gorgeous 2016 Mazda Miata has also allowed us to take a trip down memory lane: Mazda is letting us drive some of their heritage cars. Here's what it's like in the 14th, 15th, and 700,000th Miatas ever made. It's an amazing look at what made the Miata just so brilliant.
The home of a Lamborghini has never been the track. They've been weapons of power and dominance on the street, a statement that mesmerizes pedestrians and, often, frightens drivers. But the Lamborghini Huracan's mission is to intimidate others on street and track, but not intimidate the driver. Is it a success?
Designers might make a sexy looking car, but engineers make cars that you actually want to drive. Engineers made the 2014 Camaro Z/28. And it's transformed the Camaro for the better in every conceivable way. That means this is a modern Camaro that's actually as good as Camaro fanboys pretend it is.
The first thing you learn is that it doesn't usually rain in Spain, but when it does, it's the sort of rain that requires you to be more Captain Nemo than Ayrton Senna. And that's when you figure out how a McLaren 650S is as a submarine, not a car.
The 2015 Audi A3 is not soy milk. The 2015 Audi A3 is not the Pizza Underground. The 2015 Audi A3 is not even a fixie. But while its hipster marketing plan may not jibe with most of the actual car, there is one thing that should appeal to its ironic target demographic. It is very retro, in the best way possible.
The rarest new car in the USA is not a Lamborghini. It isn't a Ferrari. It's not an Aston Martin. It's not even close. It's a $30,000 Volkswagen hatchback. And there's only one. It's a damn unicorn.
Spyder Creations builds replicas of the Porsche 550. Inch perfect, 100 percent accurate, all-aluminum replicas they sell for $320,000 or $470,000, depending on the engine. That sounds like a lot, but a real 550 is about $4 million. This is the 550 replica that real 550 owners buy so they have a car they can drive.
I finally figured it out. The 2014 Corvette Stingray isn't from 2014 at all. It's actually the 2024 Corvette. General Motors has a time machine, and they use it to ship these cars back to our era after building them with future technology. That must be it.
Lamborghini has nothing close to a racing heritage in its past. But that doesn't mean it's too late to start. The Super Trofeo series is that start. And it's an absolutely incredible one. Here's what it's like to drive one of the fastest sports cars in the world.
Hertz and Ford have a pretty substantial history building hot rodded rental cars together. Remember the Shelby GT350H? Hertz is back with another modded Mustang, and it's the rental car to take to the track. Not that we recommend you do that...
There isn't really a louder car on the road than the Jaguar F-Type V8S. It's so loud you might almost think it's broken. The Project 7, which is based on the V8S, is tuned to be even louder on purpose. This is Jag at its best.
I admit it. I'm a Miata fanboy. Publicly, I won't admit that the car has any faults. It's perfect. But friends, in private, I think it has quite a few. I'm going to let you in on what needs fixing. And why the Super20 fixes all of them. And more.
