There's been a lot of talk about the new noses on the 2014 F1 cars — mostly about what sort of gentials they resemble.

Here's Your Handy Chart Of Cars Named 'SuperAmerica'

You'd think there'd be more cars named after an America that's super.

This Chart Shows How Rear-Engine Deprived We Now Are

It's not really rational, but I've always loved rear-engined cars. There's something about them that just feels like they're from an alternate history, a more optimistic world of dirigible travel and lunar bases. That's not how it turned out, but there was a time when it felt like it might. That's what this chart's… » 10/18/13 5:45pm 10/18/13 5:45pm

This Chart Shows How Much Energy Is In Different Kinds Of Fuel

When we shove things into our vehicles and turn them from boring old liquids or tubs of chemical goop into sweet, sweet motion, we soon realize not all fuels are created equal. Why is it that a gasoline car, for example, can go so much farther than an electric? And why can nuclear subs go without refueling for decades? … » 10/04/13 2:57pm 10/04/13 2:57pm
