Ford Mustangs getting up to no good at car meets have transcended most punchlines and shot straight to international meme-dom, but it doesn’t stop the whole thing from still being funny when you see it fresh. Here’s the latest one.
The fastest ever year of the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship’s fastest Prototype class continues, this time, with a new Prototype class lap record at the 12 Hours of Sebring. Tristan Vautier will start Sebring out in front after claiming pole position with a 1:47.432 lap time in the No. 90 Spirit of Daytona…
Space meteorologists are warning that the sun, the very thing that gives us light, warmth and life, could interfere with GPS systems and cause a lot of problems for the current crop of self-driving cars in development. You may have to start checking space forecasts before leaving for work in the morning.
Jalopnik is on Instagram, you’re on Instagram, and we’re highlighting the best of it all every week using the #DriveFreeOrDie hashtag. This week, we’ve got kayaks, G-Wagens, Austins, and a whole bunch of other cool, fun and weird stuff.
Under-desk headphone holders aren’t a new concept, but this one ingeniously incorporates a three-port USB charging hub between its two hooks. That makes a ton of sense wireless over-ears that you want to recharge, but it’s also a great way to charge phones and tablets without dedicating precious desk real estate to…
Sometimes life gives you the opportunity to choose a difficulty level. It could be in a video game, or it could be which engine you pick from Volkswagen Automotive Group.
The old Lincoln Aviator, produced from model years 2003 to 2005, was a miserable failure. Lincoln’s bringing the nameplate back for 2019, though. Might this one fare better? Maybe! Today, Lincoln confirmed it would preview the new Aviator at the New York International Auto Show later this month. Aviator? Aviator!
I was about to call this $98,000 2018 BMW M550i with Dinan’s Stage 1 tune a “sleeper”, but the quartet of fatty exhaust pipes and 20-inch Forgeline wheels will definitely wake you up. It’s a lot more low key than an M5, though, and on the highway it’s pretty much a low-flying private jet.
This is a Ferrari F2003GA, with a 3.0-liter V10 that can howl to 19,000 RPM and, as far as this new 1:01.2 lap record of Road Atlanta suggests, bend the fabric of spacetime.

I don’t know how or why this happened—maybe automakers are making so much money off gray, white and silver crossovers that they just said “fuck it, why not”—but green is having something of a renaissance right now. We’ve seen more green options on new cars than we have in many years. If you ask me, the green comeback…
The Los Angeles Times just published a feature on the history of SoCal street racing. It’s not a wistful look back at leather jackets and hot rods. It’s about young kids being killed, lives being wasted and families being destroyed for nothing.
A well-fitted suit is something everyone should have in their closet, but it’s hard to justify dropping a bunch of money on something you’ll barely wear. Entire the Perry Ellis Semi-Annual Suit Sale. With a huge selection of styles, colors, and cuts, this sale will help you look sharp without breaking the bank.
Ug, flying cars. I’m so sick of them. They’re always two years away, they’re always stupid, and nobody is ever going to buy them. They’re miserable teases, and I swore I was done with them. I’d accepted this, and then along come these Dutch bastards with a stupid name, Pal-V, with a flying car they say you (well, rich…
Women who sued Uber on the assertion that the company’s policies failed to protect them and others from sexual misconduct want to have their case heard by a jury. But they say Uber’s terms of service have forced them into arbitration, meaning anyone who uses the app must settle disputes behind closed doors through a…
The appeal of accelerated bridge construction—where precast parts are pieced together and within hours installed over a roadway before being tested and reinforced for weeks—is that it minimizes road closures. The downside is that the smallest mistakes can lead to disaster. This method, used to build a pedestrian…
I know, you forgot about the W12 Audi A8, too. I don’t blame you. I actually forget that Audi A8s are a thing in general on most days. But the the W12 option made them cool, even if you couldn’t get the current-generation A8 with one here in the U.S. But it seems like that’s coming to an end anyway.
You may have thought, “Hey, if we’re threatened by an incoming asteroid, we should just nuke it!” You’re not alone: a team of Russian scientists are working on a plot to do so, by detonating miniature asteroids in a lab.
