With the massive proliferation of cheap GoPros and other cameras, it seems like every second of Russia's free-for-all roads are now recorded. These are the thirteen most unbelievable moments from the year.
In Russia, everyone should have a camera on their dashboard. It's better than keeping a lead pipe under your seat for protection (but you might still want that lead pipe).
I know they're not to everyone's tastes, but I'm starting to like this trend towards these digital instrument panels being installed in everything from a Chevy Spark to basically the whole fleet of Jaguar and Land Rover products. Some of these are well done and are able to showcase a lot of information now that…
Since it launched in 2008, Nissan's GT Academy has repeatedly done something previously thought to be absurd and unrealistic: It has taken people who are really, really good at Gran Turismo and put them in the seats of actual race cars. Look at Spaniard Lucas Ordoñez, who successfully went from gamer to pro driver…
Welcome to the Jalopnik Weekend Motorsports Roundup, where we let you know what's going on in the world of racing, where you can see it, and talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?
The UAE is, in many ways, like the USA. It's a collection of 7 emirates (similar to our states) bound together by a federal government. Emiratis also love cars as much, or perhaps more than, the typical American.
The great thing about rich people is that they buy new cars like mad and let the old ones go for pennies. Jalopnik readers know these ten most-depreciated cars of the past ten years.
This? This is no ordinary Camaro, hombre. Not by a long shot. This is a supercharged L99-powered, 400-hp ZL1-badged widebody Camaro that will soon feature prominently in a DreamWorks 3D comedy called Turbo. What's so confusing?
For the last few years, Ken Block has been destroying the tires on Fords like it was his job. And that's pretty much because it is his job.
Every few years, carmakers try and give their cars a bit of a facelift to keep them fresh. Jalopnik readers know ten operations that turned out botched.
The arrival of the Cadillac ATS has put the tried and true CTS in a bit of a tough spot. It's barely larger than the ATS, it's more expensive, and it's getting old. These are all bad things.
Stories are told about how drivers change when the helmet goes on, the visor slams shut and the engines roar to life. Some say the "nice guy" demeanor is replaced by a wild, savage creature desperate for success, no matter the consequences.
BMW is one of those companies that gets respect and guff in big, heaping piles around here. They certainly make plenty of spectacular, iconic cars, from the 2002 to E30s to the 507 to even the little Isetta. They also sometimes seem to generate a following of arrogant, parking-line-ignorers. Two sides of the big BMW…
Marketing lingo in the car world is absurd. Jalopnik readers know ten instances where even the simple act of naming an option on a car got out of hand.
An incredibly long time ago, the entry-level Boxster was the best selling car in Porsche's entire lineup. The problem was that the wee little roadster wasn't generating the profits that Porsche needed to lay the groundwork for a successful future.
Cars were born to fly, but jumps can easily go wrong. Jalopnik readers have put together the ten most painful, spine-crunching failed jump attempts in modern automotive history.
This idea is so perverse I can't help but love it. It's a picture of what appears to be a nicely-polished Honda 1.8L B18 engine nestled in the engine bay of a Z06 Corvette. Now, to Corvette purists, this is the equivalent of getting a heart transplant from a mole — an abomination that also is just too feeble to…
