1972 Citroën DS Break: The Jalopnik Classic Review

I'll admit, when I moved to Chapel Hill, NC from LA last year, I was pretty despondent about leaving LA's amazing carscape. I'm delighted to say that I was more pessimistic than I needed to be. This was proven conclusively when I passed a house, not five minutes from my own, that was infested with Citroëns. Seeing… » 2/18/15 2:34pm 2/18/15 2:34pm

What It's Like To Drive The Greatest Soviet Car Of All Time

Before I went to Iceland to review the Land Rover Discovery Sport, I had one goal in mind: drive a Lada. I've always been fascinated by the old Soviet-bloc cars, and I've hardly ever even seen one in person.

The Electric BMW i3 Is The Cheapest Exotic Car You Can Buy

If up until this point you thought the BMW i3 was a rather ugly piece of overpriced boredom, please allow me a moment to explain why you've been misled. This rear-wheel drive electric car had a bigger effect on me than a Lamborghini Aventador and has just as much carbon fiber as that Italian exotic and can be had for… » 1/30/15 12:00pm 1/30/15 12:00pm

2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport: Do They Have Soccer Practice On Hoth?

There's something pretty magical about finding yourself, just one hour off a plane, two hours' sleep stored in your body, behind the wheel of an SUV with studded tires, driving blindly into a white wasteland where you can't even discern the divide between sky and land. The SUV is theDiscovery Sport, the land is… » 1/27/15 12:02pm 1/27/15 12:02pm

Driving Subaru's WRX STI Rally Car Will Melt Every Part Of Your Brain

Rallying is a nuanced art. It takes years of training to get to the level where you can drive an open class car like this Subaru WRX STI with a sequential gearbox and 500 pound feet of torque. But I didn't have years of training. I had hours. And driving it has warped my brain forever. » 1/26/15 12:45pm 1/26/15 12:45pm

2015 Honda N Box Slash: What It's Like To Drive A Funky Kei Car

Ever since Jason Torchinsky wrote up his piece on the N Box Slash (N/), I've been dying to drive one. Then I noticed that one of the dealerships nearby had one on display inside their dealership, and I knew I just had to give it a spin. Welcome to the very first Jalopnik East review, where I drive shit Torchy can't… » 1/24/15 12:00pm 1/24/15 12:00pm

2015 Corvette Z06: A 650 HP All-American Middle Finger To Euro Supercars

The Z06 is a 650 horsepower Corvette. Six hundred. And fifty. A Corvette that gets to 60 in less than three seconds. A Corvette than can stop from 60 in less than 100 feet. A Corvette that can pull 1.2 G in a corner. And a Corvette that costs less than $100,000. It's an all-American middle finger to every other high… » 1/08/15 12:00pm 1/08/15 12:00pm
