Video: Our Ford Fiesta ST Gets the First COBB Stage 2 Kit, Will Blow…

We love our Fiesta ST. It's light, fun, fast, and super practical. That doesn't mean it couldn't use a few more ponies under the hood. We got a nice little bump in midrange torque from the COBB Stage 1 package a few months back, but now let's see what happens when we go for Stage 2! » 4/07/14 7:07pm 4/07/14 7:07pm

Video: Shredding a Set of Tires in the Chevrolet SS

This is the 2014 Chevrolet SS, also known as the 2008 Pontiac G8 GXP. First it was dead, then it was alive again, but only for cops, and then people begged for it on the internet (where everyone wants what they can't have). So, here it is, alive once more for customers. Is it everything they asked for? » 2/18/14 11:26am 2/18/14 11:26am

The Smoking Tire Project Fiesta ST Gets COBB Stage 1

After we filmed the somewhat controversial Ford Fiesta ST vs. BMW E46 M3 video a month or so back, we as a group were so smitten with the Fiesta ST's ludicrous value for money proposition that our cameraman and resident mad scientist Thaddeus Brown went straight to the dealership and traded in his 2006 Mini Cooper S… » 1/31/14 12:57pm 1/31/14 12:57pm

Video: What's it's Like to Drive the Stelvio Pass in a Too-Big and…

Recently, Jalopnik's Travis Okulski got to drive Top Gear's former pick for "the best driving road in the world" in a Porsche Cayman S, and came away underwhelmed. Travis and I have discussed this in detail, and we have decided that the Sustenpass , Grimsel Pass, and the Fluelapass are the best roads in Switzerland,… » 10/04/13 12:47pm 10/04/13 12:47pm

Video: I Bought a Barn-Find Delorean

In 1985, when I was 4, my father brought home my first-ever car magazine. It was an issue of Car and Driver, and I must have "read" it cover-to-cover at least 100 times in the first week I had it. But I always spent more time on one page than any other: it was the page that had a full spread featuring a shiny,… » 7/23/13 9:29am 7/23/13 9:29am

What's the Best Idea for a Custom Painted Helmet? (W/ Video)

Look at that hair. Donald Trump, for all his faults (which are many) has contributed one of the more iconic haircuts in recent history. And while his perfectly coiffed hair may have defined his signature look way back in the 80's, I much prefer the more modern version of Trump's mop. As he ages, his hair is getting… » 6/25/13 11:46am 6/25/13 11:46am

Video: 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish: An Aston Owner's Review

For the last 9 years, I've owned a first-generation Aston Martin Vanquish. And, though it does come standard with some supercar foibles and what may be the world's second-worst transmission (the Smart Car is still solidly #1), it has been a wonderful vehicle, provider of more smiles per hour than one ever needs, even… » 6/12/13 4:13pm 6/12/13 4:13pm

Video - Range Rover Evoque: On and Off-Road Test

The Range Rover Evoque is the smallest Range Rover ever. It’s also the first Range Rover since 1993 to not come with an air suspension. It’s also the first Range Rover to feature “design input” from a pop singer who, despite her considerable beauty, almost certainly has never driven more than ten feet off the tarmac.… » 4/09/13 2:59pm 4/09/13 2:59pm

Video: 2013 SLS GT AMG Review

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… » 2/27/13 5:28pm 2/27/13 5:28pm
