Anyone can be a car enthusiast. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you drive. But it takes a special kind of maniac to own and love a car in New York City. If you’re gonna do it, you better do it in something interesting.
Earlier this year the Aston Martin DB11 made landfall in the United States. Say what you will about the rear roof quarter lifted from a Nissan Maxima; this car makes a hell of an entrance. And with its 600 horsepower V12, a good getaway, too. This week we’re driving the V8 version. What do you want to know about it?
You ever see a picture of something and you make an involuntary, incoherent noise because the subject is just that awesome? That just happened to me when I saw this picture of an Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake.
It seems that the people of Montreal are a proud people, and they don’t like to be told when to dance. At least, that’s one possible reason why 39-year-old Taoufik Moalla was pulled over and given a $149 ticket for “screaming in public.” Moalla was signing along to C&C Music Factory’s 1990 hit, Gonna Make You Sweat,…

Over the weekend, some pictures emerged of a fallen Pagani Zonda, its nose missing and sitting alongside a highway in the UK. It’s all very sad.
The only driving game I’ve really ever played is Forza. I’ve never actually played a Need For Speed game. Until tomorrow, that is, because Electronic Arts invited me to come preview the series’ newest installment, Need For Speed Payback, ahead of its Nov. 10 release date.
Gran Turismo has always skewed more towards the realistic simulation end of the spectrum in order to provide an accurate experience for virtual racers. This year’s version adds another layer to that, in the form of a certification and enforcement of proper “sportsmanship.”
October has been quite a month for events in Japan. From the Nicole Racing Days, the La Festa Mille Miglia, and the Ferrari 70th Anniversary Rally just last week, we’ve been staying busy over here. But we can’t always have nice things, and as such it’s been raining non-stop (like raining water, not raining cool car…
A toy chariot estimated to be 5,000 years old has been discovered as part of an ongoing excavation in one of the oldest settlements of the world, according to reports, and it’s seriously awesome.
Pretty much any act of road rage makes you look like an idiot. That’s just how it is. This particular example, from New South Wales, Australia, might be the most pure and perfect form of the road-raging moron. That’s because the road-rager’s own anger and idiocy causes him to bite himself on the ass, like an idiotic…
At the U.S. Grand Prix on Sunday, Red Bull driver Max Verstappen climbed from 17th all the way into third after a grid penalty. But the podium Verstappen took away on the last lap didn’t last long, since Formula One race stewards decided his pass on Kimi Raikkonen wasn’t fair. Here’s that pass, from every angle.
My time with Driver’s Ed and logging those hours with the instructor to get my permit were largely uneventful. Which I guess is sort of the experience that you want. Nobody screamed at me ever because there was nothing to scream at. This wasn’t always the case with you guys.
