When the new Ford GT debuted at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, we lost our minds over its sheer sexiness. Now Ford has released a clip of the supercar in a wind tunnel, and—once again—we’re having a hard time keeping it together.
The Mercedes-AMG GT isn’t a Porsche 911, but it is a damn fine sports car. And just look at it. It’s absolutely stunning. What do you need to know before you buy an AMG GT? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in our Buyer’s Guide.
This past weekend the TUDOR series returned to beautiful northwest Connecticut and the historic 1.5 mile “bull ring” of Lime Rock Park for the North East Grand Prix. Friday was a combination of practice and qualifying for the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge and United Sports Car series with the main events…
The 1966 Ford GT40 is not like most cars. Sure, its got headlights, air conditioning, and a key, but that's not my point.
I have a problem. I've never managed to keep the throttle floored the entire stretch of Laguna Seca's front straight in anything over 500 horsepower. It's practically my home track, but as soon as I start climbing that crest, self-preservation kicks in and I lift. Every. Damn. Time. That changed in the Mercedes-AMG GT.
What does it look and sound like to set a record lap time of 8m 10.921s in the Nurburgring 24 Hours? You may never know, but the French McLaren GT factory driver Kevin Estre does. He qualified the Doerr Motorsport McLaren 12C GT3 on pole position for the race.
There's nothing like track time to see what a supercar is made of. That's why I was optimistic that, not only had Mercedes and AMG re-worked the SLS for 2013, but also they invited me to the track to drive it. They say it's faster, sharper, more responsive, and will return more feedback to the driver than the…
Scottish Authorities are still on the hunt for a man who used an axe to do more than £40,000 ($62,712) of damage to a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti last month.
If you're going to buy a $200,000 sports car like the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, what's the point in settling for a base model? Perhaps this is the thinking behind the company only selling the new, more powerful SLS AMG GT in the United States during the 2013 model year.
John Hennessey, who builds the monstrous 1,200-horespower Venom GT, sent us this video of a gamer hooning up one of his cars in Fourza. The track action is awesome, but his explanation for the video is even more interesting.
Certainly it comes as a shock to no one that there aren't many Pre-A Porsche 356s sitting in barns and finding an old Gullwing or 250 GT is a nearly impossible task even if somehow you actually have the money to pay for one. Sometimes it isn't just the most rare and sought after cars that can be tough to find though.
Texas doesn't have four seasons. Texas has two: Hot and not-hot. Twice a year during the not-hot times gearheads gather on a long strip of concrete to see who can blast the fastest standing-mile time. This weekend's running of The Texas Mile brought out a Hennessey-tuned Twin-Turbo Ford GT that ripped a spectacular…
Demolition derbies are usually a slight detour for well worn older cars between the end of their usable life and a trip to the crusher. This weekend we want to know what would happen if the opposite were true and derbies somehow became the territory of brand new cars.
Skijoring is a winter sport that involves being dragged around by a horse or a dog on skis. It's also something we have almost no interest in, that is at least until you replace the horse or dog with a 570 horsepower Bentley Continental GT.
It's one thing to keep a single example of a desirable car in as-delivered condition in hopes of cashing in after production winds down. It's another to have fifteen pristine brand-new copies of the fastest cars Ford ever sold become available all at once.
Spoiler alert: Awesome race cars are even more awesome at Laguna Seca. It's a photographer's paradise and we sent the inimitable Brad Fox to last weekend's American Le Mans Series race at Laguna Seca to bring you enough grid girls, engine porn, and ferocious race cars to keep your
spank bank wallpaper folder stocked…
The driver of this $140,000 Ford GT was traveling through Norton Shores, Mich., when he swerved to avoid a car heading into a driveway. The GT lost control and was split-in-half and roasted by a utility pole like a giant, V8-powered sunflower seed. The passenger and the driver somehow survived the crash, though the…
Larry Chen at Speedhunters recently uncovered the unbelievable "brand new" 25 year old AE86 Toyota Corolla seen here on a trip to Belgium. If you've ever wondered what a perfectly optioned AE86 would have looked like fresh from the dealer's lot, wonder no more.
Remember the playground bully? The kid twice your size who repeated first grade just so he could be larger and stronger? In the automotive world, that bully's name is Bugatti, and I just saw him back down from a fight with something even more menacing.
