The engines in supercars are notoriously fragile and short-lived. Mercedes’ upcoming engine may last a scant 31,000 miles, for instance. Koenigsegg, however, builds its engines so stout and so powerful that they could last for literal centuries.
Ever have any idea how a Japanese person pronounces “Nissan?” Or how a Swedish person pronounces “Koenigsegg?” Wonder no more. Spanish motoring outfit Coches.net decided to help everyone out, by asking car companies how to pronounce their own names, in their own languages.
Oh, hey there. What do you like to do for fun? What’s that? Torture yourself by watching videos of things you can’t have, like the Alpine A110? Samesies!
Look, look at that photo of Renault’s reborn Alpine A110. It is so fast and lightweight and fun! Where could it be driving to? I’ll tell you: away from America.
If you are like me and went through the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program in public school, then you know how inconsequential it was—so much so that it’s now a trendy sarcastic t-shirt on the west coast. You may also now enjoy this trippy Fiat video.
McLaren gave us the 2018 McLaren 720S a few days ago, and already there is an MSO-ified version of it. What do you think, yay or nay?
Lamborghini is not taking you Internet “experts” lightly when you say that the Italians faked their Huracán Performante Nürburgring production car lap record. Lamborghini has video. Lamborghini has data. Lamborghini will waltz right into your basement and shove it all in your face if it has to.
Did you just buy the all-new Impreza? It’s really nice and impressive, but do you even rugged, bro? I mean how are you going to scale some sick trails, and wear your North Face in a hatchback? Should have waited for the all new 2017 Crosstrek, bro.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Bentley’s future is electric, and if it’s based off the EXP12 Speed 6e concept that debuted at Geneva this week, it’s going to be a pretty future.
“It looks like something a teenager drew in a notepad” seemed to be the consensus from the commentariat about the 2018 Honda Civic Type R today. Yes, yes it does. And you know what? Good. Good.
I’m in an unusually good mood today and it’s not because I got to pet my neighbor’s dogs in the elevator this morning. It’s because the 2017 Geneva Motor Show is going on and it is hands down my favorite show. Here’s why.
Last month we told you about Tamo, the performance-oriented sub-brand of Tata. Since here in America we mostly only know about Tata in the context of the ultra-cheap Nano, I don’t think anyone took Tamo that seriously. Now Tamo has a car to show, called the RACEMO. Yeah, it’s a dumb name, but there’s even worse words…
Last week, I got into an accident.
Long before Singer and other outfits were reimagining classic Porsches, there was RUF. Now the standalone automaker has unveiled what looks like a restomod 911 but is actually a completely unique, all-carbon fiber car on its own (not-Porsche) platform with 700 horsepower and a top speed of 225 mph.
The Mercedes G500 4x4² is already way over the top, with portal axles, enormous wheels and tires, and eight fancy shock absorbers. But German tuning company Brabus has taken that brobdingnagian beast and emboldened it even better with the Brabus 550 Adventure 4x4², the ultimate in tacticool off-roaders.
For a few years now, the thousand-kilo Alfa Romeo 4C has been alone as the only sports car worth giving a shit about, and finally it has a production car rival. This is the Alpine A110, with 252 horsepower and a kerb weight of 1,080 kilos. That’s 2,381 lbs for those of you missing the glory days of sportscardom.
