The Alfa Romeo 4C Shames Every Other Sports Car On The Market

“We’ve come too far to give up who we are.” Most of the time I was driving the Alfa Romeo 4C, I was listening to Daft Punk’s 2013 release Random Access Memories. This seemed like an appropriate album for Alfa Romeo’s return to the United States with a glorious new sports car that is better than everyone thought it… » 5/05/15 1:42pm 5/05/15 1:42pm

The New Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Demands That You Go Faster

Some cars just beg of you, plead with you to go faster. That’s what Matt Sanders of Autocar thought of the new Lamborghini Huracán GT3 after driving one flat out on track. The fruit of Lambo’s first factory racing effort works better at higher speeds. Go faster. Why aren’t you going faster? You should be going faster. » 4/26/15 2:33pm 4/26/15 2:33pm

Something Got Lost In Translation With The 2016 Fiat 500X

I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but sub-compact crossovers are so hot right now. They’re practical, have a modicum of capability, and are perfect for the urban-dwelling, active lifestyle 20-somethings that rule the Kingdom of Powerpoint. The 2016 Fiat 500X should be the standard-bearer for the segment. But it’s not,… » 4/17/15 9:59am 4/17/15 9:59am

I Towed A Dodge Dart In Texas Snow With A Silverado 1500 And Didn't Die

So, you bought a race car. Congratulations! Let me guess: you only have a few bars of eye-searingly bright LEDs on the front instead of your OEM headlamps, and now you can't drive it on public roads anymore without getting stabbed in traffic? Gotcha. We at Black Flag are here to help. » 4/16/15 12:10pm 4/16/15 12:10pm

Saying Goodbye To The Audi R8 V10 Plus, The Best Modern Halo Car

I need to warn you that this isn’t going to be just a straightforward review of the Audi R8 . The R8 has now been around for nearly a decade. Plenty of ink, both the Internet kind and the real kind, has been spilled describing how it drives. I will definitely address that, of course, but I have to start… » 4/14/15 12:25pm 4/14/15 12:25pm

2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost: The Jalopnik Review

Technically, the EcoBoost Mustang is the least Mustang Mustang of all the Mustangs. Also, Mustang. We’ve all heard it: a turbo, four-cylinder Mustang is antithetical to everything that a Mustang is. I’m here to tell you that’s bullshit, and, what’s more, I think this boosted pony is actually the sweet spot of the… » 4/03/15 3:21pm 4/03/15 3:21pm

Living On And Off Road With The 2015 Chevy Colorado And GMC Canyon

Sometimes I feel like a shitty Texan because I'm not a truck guy. I don't normally have much use for huge trucks and I don't really enjoy driving them. I'd rather do a track day in some hot hatch or cheap sports car than go off-roading. But after two weeks of driving a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon back to… » 3/26/15 4:16pm 3/26/15 4:16pm

Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG: The Jalopnik Review

Mercedes has decided that America won't accept the same A-Class small hatchback that anchors their lineup around the world. However, they do think you'd like the GLA-Class, a small hatchback with slightly more ground clearance. But what you really want is the GLA45, a nutjob rally-hatch monster that makes no sense and… » 3/20/15 12:24pm 3/20/15 12:24pm
