Dispatches from Hiroshima: lost in an NA Miata, at-speed in a LeMans-spec Lambo, up to my neck in Cosmos

It’s amazing where a bit of luck can land you. Over the last few days, I’ve found myself adrift without GPS on a sinuous bit of remote Japanese rural road, blitzing along in a Murcielago R-GT without ear protection, and the lone Westerner in a Mazda fan event numbering 1200 cars - and then Yojiro Terada broke out the… »9/24/15 1:11pm9/24/15 1:11pm

The Ferrari F150 Hypercar Will Be Incredibly Amazing, Say Top Secret Insiders

Other than the fact that Ferrari's Enzo successor, the F150, will be stealing a name from America's best selling truck, we could only speculate about what would be under the carbon fiber body. Now we have a better idea. At a not-so-top secret viewing in Maranello, potential customers apparently got the skinny on the… »1/31/13 12:30pm1/31/13 12:30pm
