Sometimes you don’t have to have the bright-red sports car to get everyone’s attention—the calmer, more serene colors can be just as charming. The same goes for your wallpaper, if you’re into the free version of that feeling rather than the one you’d get with a $1 million car investment.
Sure, having a McLaren on your desktop is great (though having a real one is, admittedly, better). It would be just flashy enough, get the attention of passerby and perhaps give you the motivation to speed through your workday. But having two McLarens on your desktop? That’s the way to do it.
In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve had a few Porches in the realm of Jalopnik photography over the weekend. It only makes sense to end the weekend on that note, so we decided to give you all a rather subtle way to display your love of cars on your computer desktop.
If you’re feeling the artsy—and the old-school—vibe heading into this week, it’s only right to pass it along to as many people as you can. With a tweak to your desktop, you can do that without even having to hold a conversation. (But if a passerby wants to have one, these cars are a good place to start.)
The Ferrari F12tdf is a beautifully powerful—and just plain beautiful—creature, completely and wholly deserving of the chance to grace the presence of anyone who walks by your computer as sees it as the desktop wallpaper. Whether or not they’re worthy, well, we’ll leave that discussion for another day.
If anything can make a dark alleyway look artsy and inviting, it’s a shiny, clean BMW. Perhaps there are a few more things that make up that list, but the BMW isn’t a bad start.
Tomorrow is a big day for the United States of America, if you haven’t heard. What better way to celebrate than setting one of the most American images you can find as your wallpaper? The only thing that could make this shot better would be a red, white and blue paint job, but no one can complain about purple.
Fast cars, elegant wallpapers. That’s what we’re all about here at Jalopnik, right? Right. Perhaps the first one is slightly higher up on the list, but hey—both are nice to have.
If there is anything better than staring at a shiny, new Mercedes-Benz in the California mountains, it’s driving that new Mercedes through those California mountains—winding roads, unadvised high speeds and all.
Prepare your bodies for some very purple Shelby Mustang hotness.
Keeping with the theme of V12 Aston Martins this week after the unveiling of the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato, we extend an offer to decorate your desktop with an older Aston surrounded by the most serene of landscapes. Could you just imagine this thing tearing down that empty road? At the speed limit, of course.
Dreary, rainy weather isn’t always bad, especially when hundreds of Italian horses decide to pose in it. Use it as a metaphor for your week ahead—sure, Monday morning is a dreary time, but there’s always something beautiful waiting in the rain. (That was overly poetic, but hey. It’s fine.)
Need a peaceful glow—not to mention, a sleek-looking car—on your computer desktop to help you survive the impending onset of Monday? No worries. None at all. We can help.
That’s right, wallpapers, plural. I’m bringing two of them today. I must like you jokers or something.
D’aww, look at it! Look how happy it is! Like a magical puppy that wants to get sideways, if an NA Mazda Miata can’t put a smile on your face, check your pulse.
We all know that the McLaren P1 is a beauty in its entirety, but it is important to appreciate things in smaller portions on occasion (maybe that’s just the rule for eating dessert, but hey). Either way, this shot will give your desktop the artsy touch it needs.
With the press days at the New York Auto Show wrapping up this week and all of the photos of new, flashy cars behind us, it only makes sense to slow down and appreciate an oldie with our wallpaper photo this weekend.
In honor of the IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Championship’s return to the track after over a month off, now is as good of a time as ever for some Rolex 24 Hours appreciation. The series met a downpour at Sebring International Raceway this weekend, but let’s reminisce in the times of better weather and longer racing.
If this wallpaper photo doesn’t allow you to vicariously drive away from all of the stressful things occurring on a typical computer desktop—that is, if you work on the computer—then you may just be out of luck.
The new Aston Martin DB11 made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show this past week after plenty of early photo leaks, and its look has been the source of a bit of debate. Some of us like it, some of us hate it—even amongst the Jalopnik staff. To ease the tension, let’s enjoy an Aston most of us can agree on: the DBS.
