The Audi S6 Will Very Politely Punch You Square in the Face

In my line of work, it’s easy to become jaded. The mind will eventually get used to anything, given enough exposure. This applies to everything from noise, to speed, to narcotics. Even the irreverent Dr. Hunter S Thompson got used to his own warped reality, in which the violence and substance abuse eventually became… » 7/30/15 11:46am 7/30/15 11:46am

A 450hp orphan mongrel finds its forever home

This little mutt is an AMC Spirit AMX, a mini-musclecar from the late seventies with flares n’ white-lettered tires n’ a big ol’ hood decal - and a somewhat lamentable 130hp V8. Based on the Gremlin, it’s a sawed-off runt that few remember. Well you’d remember this one: it’s got a 96-inch wheelbase and a built 401ci… » 5/28/15 10:11am 5/28/15 10:11am

Why making a LandYacht a Daily Driver in Europe is the best Thing ever

Best as in completely f*cking stupid, if not borderline insane. As promised in my first post on Oppo I would like to tell you about my journey of bringing an old, neglected Lincoln Mark VIII LSC back on the road, and how I plan to make it my permanent daily driver.http://oppositelock.jalopnik.com/first-post-on-... » 2/08/15 12:38pm 2/08/15 12:38pm

The most beautiful car sales brochure in the world!

The Mercedes 600 was the flagship of Mercedes-Benz between 1963 and 1981. It was the ride of choice for the millionaires, presidents, dictators and even the Pope. Each 600 was special ordered to client's specifications. But if you're a small Merecdes-Benz dealer in a banana republic, how could you sell the newly risen… » 1/11/15 10:30am 1/11/15 10:30am

This V8 Rear-Wheel-Drive Focus Is A Monster Sleeper

The Focus ST is a great hot-hatch. The problem is the styling minces no words about what that car can do, so you end up with all kinds of bros trying to race you on your commute. Now if you want something that blends in, but can lay down some serious rubber, check out this RWD converted V8 Focus. » 9/28/14 5:59pm 9/28/14 5:59pm

2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe: It's Official, And We Still Want One

A few days ago, just hours after we showed you the new BMW M6 Gran Coupe, the Bavarians issued a rather long press release about their newest pride. It's not what you would call an exciting read, and we hadn't gotten around to posting the official news because we correctly guessed most of the stats then. Still, we… » 12/17/12 9:30am 12/17/12 9:30am

Listen To The Endless Growling Of The Jaaaaag F-Type's Supercharged V8

Jaguar's F-Type has undergone its first dynamic challenge outside of Jaguar's internal development programme, and three lucky chaps called Martin Brundle, Christian Danner and Justin Bell were flown to the Snetterton 300 circuit with a helicopter to give it a go in both the supercharged V6 and V8 versions. You might… » 12/14/12 10:30am 12/14/12 10:30am
