The Isle of Man is a 220 square-mile splinter of the U.K. floating between England and Ireland. Host to (in)famous motorcycle racing and a spectacular auto museum, they love their cars out there. Especially Land Rovers.
Not only did SpaceX land their Falcon 9 rocket, but they looked damn good while doing it. This is how to do a return-to-flight with style!
Oh, wow. Aerodynamics research has never looked as pretty as it does with this new variation of an old technique for imaging supersonic shockwaves.
Johnson Valley, California hosts some of the wildest and most accessible off-road racing events in America. That's fun to watch, but when the sun goes down things get downright batshit out there. See a new side of the desert in this gallery of eye candy.
To say that the Pirelli World Challenge series is growing would be a massive understatement. They have more manufacturer interest than ever before as well as a few teams who would usually be running United SportsCar who've joined in the fun. How awesome is the field this year? Look at this test day.
With no more auctions scheduled for 2012, we're safe in looking at the top 10 sales of cars at public auction from 2012. I understand that talking about extremely expensive cars will always generate extreme controversy among some audiences. Personally, I am less and less upset about the notion.
A few days ago, just hours after we showed you the new BMW M6 Gran Coupe, the Bavarians issued a rather long press release about their newest pride. It's not what you would call an exciting read, and we hadn't gotten around to posting the official news because we correctly guessed most of the stats then. Still, we…
It will come as no surprise to hear that in this line of work we get to drive some pretty badass cars. At the same time, sometimes, juuuuust sometimes, we are handed the keys to a car that is — how do I put this gently? Crap.
Before I started my brave new life writing here at Jalopnik, I used to do my end-of-year, cars-I've-driven reviews at Macarthur Park in Los Angeles, to a collected crowd of sleeping vagrants and loud, opinionated ducks.
Two days after we showed it to you, Mercedes-Benz gave us all the details about it's newest E-Class. We said the car's redesigned front and S-Class shaped profile looks dull, and thought that the sedan's backside could bore even a hardcore Lexus fan, while they refer to it as "emotionally appealing".
The four-door M6 is something BMW would have kept a secret until next year, but as usual, the pictures were leaked. So here it is: your 560 hp four-door gran turismo filled with all the power and luxury you will ever need.
I think almost every car-focused primate reading this has, at least once, wondered about what it's like to go to auto design school, both with awe (you just saw a vintage Alfa slink past) or disgust (there's an Aztek doing 25 in front of you).
Last week, I visited what is essentially the neo-natal ward of the automotive design industry: ArtCenter's school of Transportation Design.
If you're around the LA area, they've probably finished fumigating the Staples center and doing extensive renovations on the bathrooms to get the auto-journalist stink out, making the LA Auto Show ready for the general public.
First, let's just get this out of the way. This V8 micro-Beetle is likely the Best In Show of the Los Angeles International Auto Show. Incredible power-to-weight ratio, classic styling, and, because it doesn't look like there's any way to actually get in and drive it, infinite fuel economy and zero emissions, since I…
