What It's Like To Drive A Formula 3 Track-Day Car On A Wet Track

The BAC Mono is a carbon-bodied piece of motoring sculpture, created with the innards of a Formula 3 car: 1190.5-lb, 280hp. The handling is astonishing, even in the wet, as Chris Harris found out recently at Rockingham UK. » 8/01/12 3:30pm 8/01/12 3:30pm

What Happens When You Drag Race A Porsche 911 GT2 And A Ducati?

Chris Harris could drift a block of concrete and regularly makes quick work of some of the world's trickiest road courses in the world's wickedest cars. It's therefore amusing to me that he gets so nervous about a little old quarter-mile. » 7/25/12 3:40pm 7/25/12 3:40pm

Watch A Brit Flog The Mustang Shelby GT500 and Camaro ZL1

We share a common language, a deep pop-cultural connection and the stormy heritage of two petulant brothers, but Yanks and Brits don't always see eye-to-eye on cars. No doubt we've got a lot invested in mega horsepower machines that can devour ribbons of interstate. But can we build sports cars a European could love? » 7/05/12 3:30pm 7/05/12 3:30pm

This Is How The Slightly Mad Go Rallying On A Budget

Chris Harris was looking for cheap oversteer. So he and his mates procured a BMW 325i rally car. This video chronicles their first gravel test day, which as you'll see, was a shambles thanks to a clapped-out Range Rover and a dodgy trailer. » 6/13/12 4:00pm 6/13/12 4:00pm

Night Drifting The Toyota GT 86 In Indonesia

This is 20-year-old drifter Demas Agil skidding the new Celica Scion FR-S GT 86 around a few cones. It proves nothing, other than why we adore this car. » 6/06/12 1:00pm 6/06/12 1:00pm

Hooning An AMG-Tuned Geländewagen On The Autobahn

The Mercedes-Benz Geländewagen, or G-Wagen, has been sold to civilian buyers since 1979. The AMG version debuted 20 years later, pairing the rugged overland vehicle with a 5.4-liter supercharged V8. A decade later, its successor, the 6.2-liter G63, was rumored to be on the chopping block. Nope. » 5/30/12 3:30pm 5/30/12 3:30pm

What's The Best Six-Figure, Damp-Weather Sports Car?

Like many high-performance gew-gaws, the UK and Japan often get the good stuff, while we're left with the more economical stuff. That's the issue with the Nissan GT-R Track Pack. We don't get it, but blokes in damp places, like Chris Harris, do. » 5/16/12 3:30pm 5/16/12 3:30pm

The Mercedes-Benz SL63 Has Multiple Personality Disorder

Pity the poor car — like the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG — that must do it all: Deliver elders of the upper class to exclusive clubs and posh eateries, and youngers to d-bag clubs and rich-guy rallies. All the while, it must perform like Walter Röhl might show up for a lap around Spa. » 5/10/12 3:00pm 5/10/12 3:00pm

BMW M3 GTS Vs. Porsche GT3 RS 4.0 Vs. Mercedes C63 AMG Black: Which Is…

The BMW M3 GTS has a great engine and amazing chassis dynamics, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black has a wickedly charismatic V8 and quick-acting autobox. Both are lighter than their downmarket counterparts and sport huge premium price tags. But can they compete with the Porsche GT3 RS 4.0 on road and track? » 5/02/12 3:30pm 5/02/12 3:30pm

Enjoy This Belgian-Rules Rally Porsche 911

What rules does the country of Belgium impose on historic rallying? Very few. That is, as long as you use the original crankcase, you can do whatever you want. That means things like a 3.5-liter, 365-hp flat six in a Porsche 911 rally car. » 4/05/12 3:00pm 4/05/12 3:00pm

The 1957 Mercedes Benz SL Looked Like The Millennium Falcon

Can A Man Drive A Porsche Boxster?

My own answer to that question has always been a big, steaming pile of yes. The Boxster's been great to drive since its inception, and Porsche's just kept improving it. But with a new round of upgrades, is it finally butch enough to win over non-roadster guys? Let's ask Chris Harris. » 3/14/12 4:30pm 3/14/12 4:30pm

Is The McLaren MP4-12C The Rolls Royce Of Supercars?

One of the McLaren MP4-12C's best characteristics is its capability to adopt multiple road sensibilities, that of a mildly-sprung street cruiser, a canyon carver and a track monster, by way of a pair of switches. But the Rolls Royce of Supercars? At least the ride in its softest setting. » 2/28/12 10:00am 2/28/12 10:00am

The Art Of Drifting A Nissan GT-R In The Rain

Chris Harris says the 2012 Nissan GT-R is one of the most interesting cars in the world to behave badly in. Why? Because the car's amazingly byzantine all-wheel drivetrain fights against aggressively reckless inputs. But what if you add a dour British rain? Instant four-wheel dorifto. » 2/15/12 6:41pm 2/15/12 6:41pm

Will a Toyota GT 86 Drift?

It's the second most pressing question posed to any new, two-wheel-drive model in the car-o-sphere, after, "Does it suck" and "Will it hit a deer?": Will it drift? Naturally, UK journo Chris Harris was among the first to answer that question. » 2/08/12 5:15pm 2/08/12 5:15pm

Which Group B Car Is More Legendary: Ford RS200 or Audi Sport Quattro?

The nearly three-decades-old Ford RS200's byzantine all-wheel-drive system is like the modern Nissan GT-R's, only in reverse. The Audi Sport Quattro had ABS and self-locking diffs when those things were still wizardry. Awesome, yes, but which one of these cars enjoys the most renown? » 2/02/12 2:30pm 2/02/12 2:30pm
