Ferrari 458 Speciale. DRIVEN. Precious memories

It's been quite a while since I've sworn this much during a test drive. Almost a year in fact.

So you're after a new premium mid-size saloon. You want a bit of poke, a good amount of style without being too flashy, and it has to be comfortable as well as feature a performance element. Basically, you want everything. Where do you go? Traditionally, you'd head straight to Germany and check out a BMW 3 Series,… »3/10/14 1:53pm3/10/14 1:53pm

Saudi cleric claims allowing ladies to drive will lead to end of virgins

A Saudi Arabian cleric has warned his fellow countrymen against lifting the country's ban on allowing women to drive, asserting that letting ladies take the wheel will lead to a complete extinction of virgins within 10 years. Because everyone knows that ladies will only use their newfound freedom to cars to drive… »12/02/11 4:15pm12/02/11 4:15pm
