The star of any Batman movie isn’t the caped crusader, or the over-the-top villain he’s trying to defeat. It’s the Batmobile. The Dark Knight’s ride has seen countless design changes over the years, but it’s always been packed full of wonderful features that always make it the real star of the show.
House bill H.R. 2675, the Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act of 2015, seems like exactly the kind of bill I’d love — it specifically makes provisions for companies who make 500 or less cars a year so they can sell their cars more easily in the U.S. Great, right? Sure, but the bill is arbitrarily limited to one…
Gather 'round, folks, because it's time for yet another installment of Letters to Doug, Jalopnik's most mildly popular column, wherein you write me a letter with some sort of automotive question and I respond with a prolonged tirade that makes you wonder if I've been properly medicated.
A judge in Florida has ruled that companies that re-body donor cars to make them look like other models are illegal and infringe on patents and trademarks, striking a blow to people everywhere who want to make their Chrysler Sebring not look like the wretched Chrysler Sebring that it is.
It looks like a vintage Ferrari F1 car, right? It's not. It's also been pulled over by some undercover NYC cops.
Wish you could afford a bona fide supercar? Jalopnik readers are here to tell you whatever you do, don't build a replica like these.
Our recent stories on those shady scam replica-car builders reminded me of something I've been meaning to write about for a long time: an amazing project from artist Tobias Rehberger that's all about making replicas of cars. And not your usual, boring, beautiful, carefully-crafted, hyper-accurate replicas; these…
We always knew people would start making replicas of Lamborghini's newest supercar, but we didn't expect it to be this horrifying. And it's for sale!
Back in the 1980s, there was no symbol of Wall Street excess quite like the Lamborghini Countach. And yet, the 1980s were nothing compared to the excess that would come later. But a fake Lambo at a protest over fake profits? Now that's symbolism.
For her wedding day, British bride Megan Ashton wanted to arrive in a Porsche 356. Unable to afford one, she did something better — she spent six years hand-building this replica from a thrashed Volkswagen Beetle donor car.

It's been a long, arduous three years since V8 Archie kicked off his Pontiac Fiero-based Lamborghini Miura replica project, and hell if he's not all done with it. Risking cries of vehicular blasphemy, we say this thing looks damn good.
Carroll Shelby lost his bid to trademark the iconic design of the Cobra 427, the vehicle that made him famous and has been copied thousands of times. Why did he lose? Because it was copied thousands of times.
A man by the name of Jesse Vigil has decked out a 2007 Mustang to look like Barricade the Saleen Mustang from Transformers and not surprisingly, the local cops don't approve. Much to the delight of Transformers fans everywhere, including Vigil's son and the inspiration for the mod, the cops can't do a damn thing as…
There's no question that Cobras are cool, even in fiberglass kit form. But you've got to admit that the fiberglass snakes are becoming somewhat common now with all the companies
being sued by Carroll Shelby making their own versions of the V8 roadster. So for those seeking an alternative, Ruth Engineering & Racing…
It pains me to continue to speculate on this thing, but here we go again. Now there is a limited edition 1:32 die cast of the Volt that can be purchased. Part of me wants to think that Chevy is testing the waters to see how many people would be, um, die hard enough Volt fans to warrant a purchase of a die cast…
The Baja 1000 off-road burn down that westernmost peninsula is in its 40th year. In honor, Van Nuys-based TLC is rolling out the SCORE Baja 1000 Limited Edition Icon.
