We all know Greece is in a tricky financial spot right now. Pretty much all of Europe is breathing down their neck for cash, no one has any, and it’s a big Greek mess. But, as always, ol’ Torchy has a plan. See, Greece used to build some pretty quirky cars. Quirky cars are becoming rare today. See? Quirky…
Greek’s prime minister Alexis Tsipras said that yesterday’s referendum vote “doesn’t have winners or losers.” That’s not true. There’s a very plausible scenario in which that the long term effect of that one “no” vote ends up meaning there’s no 400 hp crazy Czech hatchback for you to buy.
A Greek F-16 in Spain as part of a NATO training mission crashed shortly after takeoff, killing at least 10, according to El Pais. Thirteen were injured, including six critically injured, the Spanish Ministry of Defense confirmed.
The Chinese Navy has put their money where their mouth is when it comes to their interest in the world's largest hovercraft. They have already bought two giant Zubr Class hovercraft from Ukraine, and are building two in China. Apparently four of these mammoths are not enough in the short-term, as China has now…
Remember that Top Gear episode where they took three supercars through an ultra-narrow parking garage? Yeah, this might just be worse.
Have you ever wondered why Greece isn't represented in the world of supercar manufacturers? Me neither. But to answer a question that technically does not have an answer, a company called Korres has announced the Project 4 and here it is, announced on a Greek website.
We've all had passengers who bug us while we're driving. Trust me, the guy in this video is worse.
Video of a bus monitor in Greece, New York being berated by a bunch of students landed on the Internet yesterday. In just a few minutes this group of kids manages to muster all the insecure cruelty that usually lurks beneath the surface of most preteens and propel it directly at this sad woman.
This Ferrari F430 was destroyed beyond recognition this past week on a coastal highway outside of Athens, Greece and the unbelievable post crash wreckage is almost hard to believe.
The classical economic term for Greece's situation is "boned." But one problem contributing to the country's ongoing collapse is that millions of residents underreport their incomes or just flat-out don't pay income taxes.
The city of Piraeus, Greece held an auction last week to sell a car donated by a local resident: a 1960 Mercedes 300SL hardtop that had been parked since 1974. The winning bid: $560,000.

Amazingly, there have been no deaths in the wildfires that erupted on the outskirts of Athens, Greece. The only casualties so far have been automobiles, but we still weep. Can you help us identify the bodies below?
A Ford dealership in Athens, Greece is destroyed over the weekend during the country's outbreak of rioting. We wouldn't blame you for thinking this was a way for US-based dealers to get out of their floorplan loans. Hat tip to 57SweptSide!
Though fairly pedestrian by most standards, this humorous Greek ad for the Chevrolet Matiz hatchback is, by American carmaker standards, too hot for TV. It's just a girl in a bikini suggestively washing a car, but the implication of sex means running afoul of any number of conservative family groups that get a hard-on…
For once on the Gumball, I woke up in a bed. After a long day's journey into night and Athens, Herr Roy decided he wanted to be as close as possible to the M5 and booked a block of rooms at the Sofitel in Athens, rather than taking his room at the Hilton. A French cameraman was booked into the M5 for the day, riding…
