Welcome The Return Of The Classic Bond Car With Aston Martin's DB10

Nobody likes being tailgated while motoring. Especially somebody like James Bond, who is trained to be hyper conscious of his surroundings, who sees everything and everybody as a potential threat, and who is maybe even a little trigger happy sometimes. Don't tailgate James Bond. Especially if you're in a Jaguar C-X75… » 12/19/14 10:01am 12/19/14 10:01am

This Chase Scene From Quantum of Solace Is Still Sublimely Awesome

When we asked you to name every single James Bond car ever, it did my heart good to see so many of you chime in to stick up for 2008's Quantum of Solace. Nearly every review I've seen of Skyfall so far has mentioned what a "dud" or a "disaster" its prequel was, and I don't think that criticism was fair at all. » 11/10/12 11:00am 11/10/12 11:00am

Vintage CIA Training Videos Teach You To Stalk Like A Pro

It's well known that the Jalopnik demographic is pretty much equally split between car enthusiasts and chronic stalkers. Today, thanks to our friends at Autominded, we have something that will make everyone happy. » 5/30/12 2:00pm 5/30/12 2:00pm

The Crook Driving This Car Actually Survived

A Lakewood, Washington man's somehow alive today after carjacking a 1993 Honda Accord and then splitting it in two after cartwheeling into a tree during a police chase yesterday. One more amazing and shudder-inducing photo of the car below. » 12/29/10 2:00pm 12/29/10 2:00pm

Google Earth Car Chase Like Grand Theft Auto In Real Life

Using the Google Earth hi-res satellite view of New York, simple animation and a little imagination, an entire car chase was created through the streets of Brookyln. It's like the original Grand Theft Auto — in real life. » 4/12/10 3:00pm 4/12/10 3:00pm

1957 Plymouth Leads 1957 Dodge On Crazed San Francisco Car Chase

Did the 1958 film The Lineup influence the makers of that better-known San Francisco car-chase movie a decade later? » 12/12/09 3:30pm 12/12/09 3:30pm

Honda Fit Maneuvers Through Multiple PIT Maneuvers

From Los Angeles, where this sort of thing happens all the time, comes this illuminating helicopter-cam footage of a plucky and tenacious yet felonious Honda Fit driver. Video after the jump. » 9/16/09 1:45pm 9/16/09 1:45pm

Top Ten Best Real-Life Police Chases

After yesterday's top ten silver screen police car chases, we're continuing our week-long Amerigasm with the top ten real police car chases. Because whether you're rooting for the baddies to make a clean getaway, or for the long arm to catch 'em, there's nothing quite like a good ol' real-life American police chase.… » 7/03/08 12:30pm 7/03/08 12:30pm

March Madness Narrowed To Sweet 16, Round 2 Of Voting Today

Well here we are, Round 2 of Jalopnik-style madness. After the first round of voting, we've eliminated half of the 32-car field. And there sure were some upsets; Parnelli Jones' Big Oly Bronco losing to some white Italian car being perhaps the most shocking. We even had a last minute buzzer-beater, with "Billy"… » 3/28/08 1:00pm 3/28/08 1:00pm

March Madness Begins, First Round Of Voting

Yesterday, we gave you the brackets. Today, the voting begins and Jalopnik-style March Madness ensues. If you haven't finalized your own bracket for the office pool just yet, hurry up! The field of 32 cars from the original 1974 film Gone In 60 Seconds is about to get narrowed down by your votes. At the end this… » 3/27/08 1:00pm 3/27/08 1:00pm

March Madness, Jalopnik Style

Interested in all the March madness tournament bracketry, but not really into college hoops? Maybe you're looking for a way to redeem yourself after penciling-in Duke to go all the way? Whatever the case, we've decided to throw our own Jalopnik-style bracket-madness party! Instead of basketball, we've got cars! And… » 3/26/08 1:30pm 3/26/08 1:30pm


Thomas Magnum takes on a pair of armed yahoos in a Goat and winds up ending the chase in a most unfortunate manner. Neither the Fezza nor the Poncho are injured, but fans of Mk. 1 Golf/Rabbits may want to avert their eyes. » 7/16/07 10:00pm 7/16/07 10:00pm

The Other '69 Charger: Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry!

I saw this movie on the big screen as an 8-year-old and was sent into such a car-chase frenzy that I used up my entire stash of firecrackers that very afternoon, sending exploding Hot Wheels cars to their doom. Far dumber and more ineptly made than its early-70s car-chase contemporaries, Vanishing Point and Duel, … » 7/16/07 3:00pm 7/16/07 3:00pm

Alka-Seltzer To The Rescue!

Team Knight Rider debuted back when we were in college, and watching this clip reminds us why we never bothered to stick with it beyond one episode. On the other hand, the above segemnt does feature a water-powered Bricklin (a Bricklin!) — creatively-named Hydro 2000 — that like a seagull, can be handily disabled… » 6/27/07 7:00pm 6/27/07 7:00pm

Adam vs. Enzo — More 'Manta Manta'

Wherein two of our absolute favorite automobiles of the 1980s go head to head in a duel to the death. Also, we feel vaguely wrong for thinking the Mantafahrer's girlfriend is somehow ridiculously sexy, Jersey mall hair, cracking gum and all. We try to get out of the Central Valley; it pulls us back in! » 6/05/07 9:45pm 6/05/07 9:45pm

The Hoon Supremacy

We enjoy the Bourne movies and plan to check out The Bourne Ultimatum when it drops next month. As Bumbeck pointed out last night, they feature a correct balance of intrigue, action, and weird European bad guys. The Bourne Supremacy also happened to contain one humdinger of a car chase through Moscow. Plus, who… » 5/20/07 3:15pm 5/20/07 3:15pm

Hoony Hackman: French Connection Car/Train Chase

Two things to consider here, kids. One is that Mr. Hackman did much of his own driving. Nice left foot braking, Gene. Or was that Bill Hickman, the man who drove the car when the camera was in the back seat looking out? Who is Bill Hickman, you ask? He drove the Charger in Bullitt. The other is this, "The car crash… » 5/19/07 5:21pm 5/19/07 5:21pm

Supreme Court Says: Police Not Liable For Running You Off Road,…

Oh, Hoons of the dark side, the day you've feared is nigh! In a decision that really shocks no one, the Supreme Court overwhelmingly sided with the police who "do not have to call off pursuit of a fleeing motorist when they reasonably expect that other people could be hurt." So says Anton Scalia. And seven other top… » 4/30/07 5:00pm 4/30/07 5:00pm
