Calbuco, a stratovolcano in southern Chile, began erupting yesterday at 7pm local time.

Video: A 1,000 HP R34 GTR is Better in Real Life Than in Video Games

In our travels to New Zealand, we drove a huge variety of cars, all of which were excellent in their own ways. But the one we were most excited about was, of course, the one we can’t have here for 9 more years: The R34 Skyline GTR. Almost like a bonus, this one makes four times the power it left the factory with, an… » 4/21/15 2:56pm 4/21/15 2:56pm

What Happens if You Crash One of Those Cars You're Testing? 

I get asked all the time, “What happens if you crash one of those cars you’re testing?” Fair question: I have to pay for it. But that’s not the hardest part. The hardest part is immediately having to get back in another borrowed car and test that. On our trip to New Zealand, in horrible conditions, that’s… » 4/14/15 8:45pm 4/14/15 8:45pm

The Toyota Chaser is the 4-Door Super Sleeper of Our Dreams

Though it may look just like our 1996-2001 Toyota Camry at a glance, the Toyota Chaser is no beigemobile. Because the Japanese spent the 90’s selling their coolest cars only to themselves, we never got the Toyota Chaser; it looks like a Camry, but underneath, it’s a Supra. We’re in love. » 4/02/15 1:54pm 4/02/15 1:54pm

Video: Heaven is an AE86 In the Rain

In New Zealand, motorsport runs as deep through the country as sheep-herding, fishing, and Hobbits. Practically every weekend of the year, you can find a hillclimb, street sprint, or track day somewhere in the country. So we went to the track with the Hutt Valley Motorsport Club, and hopped in president Jared Rush's… » 3/19/15 10:28am 3/19/15 10:28am

This is the World's Most Interesting Vauxhall Viva

New Zealand is quite possibly the most car-crazy per capita country in the entire world, as we at TST recently learned by touring the whole country for two weeks. Most importantly, Kiwis take incredible pride in doing everything themselves, from body work, to making parts, to repurposing parts that never should have… » 3/12/15 12:09pm 3/12/15 12:09pm

This Raw Video From A Turbulent Flight Is Absolutely Terrifying

Most of us are lucky enough to be able to say they've never flown through severe turbulence. It's the kind of seat-soiling, skull crashing ride that you will never forget in your lifetime. One passenger on American Airlines caught their ordeal on video Tuesday, when turbulence injured several passengers. » 12/18/14 10:47am 12/18/14 10:47am

Watch This Idiot Drift Through The Streets Of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

In a nation where women are forbidden to drive, there is a subculture of young men who are street racing, street drifting, and just generally being dangerous jerks on the public streets of Saudi Arabia. They even have their own websites. Spotters with cell phones keep them well ahead of the police. » 11/15/14 1:22pm 11/15/14 1:22pm

'The Snake' on Mulholland Gets Major Roadblock

The Snake, the two-mile and 21-turn famed stretch of Mulholland Highway, is widely considered to be one of the best driving roads in the world. On any given weekend, you will see hundreds of motorcyclists, exotic sports cars and most likely Jay Leno hitting the apex of each turn on this expert driving road. » 10/31/14 1:17pm 10/31/14 1:17pm
