MotoGP has come to America once again, and it’s always an incredible sight to behold. Riders on whiz past at breakneck speeds, all while holding on for dear life. The fans are some of the most passionate on the planet, and everyone wants to share the joy of riding with you. Here’s the weekend so far in photos.
Heavy fog and an extra dark start time (thanks, daylight savings) seemed to keep the most extreme and expensive cars home last weekend, but it still made for a cool and eerie atmosphere.
The $421,350 Lamborghini Aventador S made its debut in the U.S. last night at a low-key luxurious affair in Los Angeles. Here are all the pictures I could grab before security dragged me to the exit for falling way short of the sexiness quota.
There is one weekend in the United States where you can see the cars from Le Mans up close and in person, and we’re there. Between the World Endurance Championship and a boatload of IMSA’s sportscar series, there are so many rad cars here that it’s easy to just lose yourself in the madness.
The garages of Beverly Hills are pretty much all full of fabulous cars all the time. But only one is LeMans-themed, and has hot rods, motorcycles, a 1929 Bentley, and a wooden speed boat.
Artist Anthony Petrie thinks the pop culture art scene has gotten a little stale. So many rehashes of the same ideas, same properties, with the same old techniques. This is art! Do something different! Be bold! And with his upcoming solo show—and a little help from the Predator—he’s doing just that.
June 15th, 2016 is considered Jeep’s 75th anniversary because on this day in 1941, the first official order was placed for the Willys-Overland military buggy we would come to recognize as a “jeep.” In honor of that, check out this amazing album of Wranglers and their forerunners!
Watkins Glen still rules after all these years, and this weekend, the WeatherTech Sports Car Championship ran its phenomenal 6 Hours of the Glen there. There’s nothing like bombarding the peaceful hills of upstate New York with the roar of multi-class sportscar racing.
All 40 Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 hypercars have already been sold, but the car made its first U.S. appearance June 11th at Los Angeles’ the Petersen Auto Museum and to celebrate, some of the hottest supercars in the city showed up and took over the parking garage.
Last weekend the L.A. Summer Concours put about $50 million worth of exotics on the pavement outside Los Angeles’ Staples Center. For $250 a ticket you could walk among them and eat some fancy food, but if you missed the shindig you can still drool on the cars in this little gallery.
Here’s a photo of a 1966 Ferrari 275GTB owned by John & Karen Gerhard, who were kind enough to bring it to last weekend’s Pinehurst, NC Concours d’Elegance. Get it? It looks like the car is breathing heavily? It’s a meme. I’ll have the full gallery up sometime later this week, but for now, control your breathing.
All hail the men and women who make sure that when Lord March calls in 2016, people can watch and hear cars made no later than in 1923 race hard for glory. These ancient machines are something new for sure.
If you missed last weekend’s incredible 103-car Pirelli World Challenge event at Circuit of the Americas, never fear. Man on the ground Kurt Bradley captured some fantastic highlights of one of the most interesting fields of cars I’ve seen in a long time hitting the track.
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.
