I know it sometimes feels like I pick on GM a lot for these meh car articles, but they just did such a stellar job at making some truly dull, forgettable automobiles. It’s a talent, really. A terrible, terrible talent. If you start feeling some pity for GM, then I’m going to implore you to jam a syringe of adrenaline…
“It’ll look cool,” they said. Indeed. Just be careful which trees you park under, smart guy. Somebody might take that thing home thinking it’s for them.
We all have incredibly petty hills to die on when it comes to the series we love. Paul McGann is the best Doctor. Deep Space Nine is better than The Next Generation. Superior Spider-Man was good. Here is my pettiest hill, though it’s one I’m still prepared to die on: Star Wars’ A-Wings are for losers, and I am…
These darn Formula One drivers. They’re so amicable, so friendly, like wealthy, televised, car-driving neighbors or something. What happened to the aggression, the anger, the ruthless rivalries—the glory days? Mercedes boss Toto Wolff wants to know, because his drivers are getting along too well.
Immense wildfires are still ripping across southern California this week. This video from what seems to be the cab of a CalTrans plow truck clearing paths firefighters and rescuers is particularly harrowing.
Miami-Dade police issued 123,731 traffic citations in 2015. So far this year, they’ve given out 76,563. Part of the reason for that massive dip, according to The Miami Herald? Police are running out of paper tickets.
Full disclosure: I love Mercedes-AMG Black Series cars. I love how they seem like they were designed first with a massive engine making huge power and then everything else—like sticky tires, performance suspension and big brakes—were added in later to deal with the beast.
A couple weeks ago, we sponsored one of the greatest car shows that I’ve personally ever been to: Radwood 2. Together, with the guys from podcasts Driving While Awesome!, Cammed & Tubbed and Clutchkick, we threw down a show absolutely filled to the brim with 1980's and 1990's cars. Some people got super into it with…
Christmas is just two weeks away, which means your gift shopping days are starting to dwindle. We see a lot of great deals every day, but these were our 10 favorites from Monday.
The $207,900 Range Rover SVAutobiography is comfortable, of course. It’s also optimized for lazy passengers. The amount of motorization in the back seat of this thing is absolutely awesome if you’re an indolent millionaire, and probably the opposite if you’re the forth owner trying to keep all these electronics alive.
You can buy a USB adapter for your car’s 12 volt cig lighter plug for a couple bucks. But if you spend just a tiny bit more time and money, you can have a charging port that looks clean enough to have come from the factory.
When you take a regular Mercedes-Benz car and give it a fat engine, big power and lots of fancy performance bits, you get an AMG. When you take a regular AMG coupe and make it even more aggro and faster, then you get a Black Series. And four of them will be for sale very soon!
We’ve heard for a while now that hackers are taking advantage of keyless entry systems to steal modern cars in what are known as “relay attacks.” And while some folks are using old-school methods like steering wheel locks to shield themselves, there is a much simpler method.
The McLaren F1 is legendary for reasons that barely need repeating anymore. Fastest car in the world for over a decade. Most expensive car in the world for over a decade. Best car in the world forever and ever, blah blah blah. Less commonly known is just how much of an insane drain it is on the bank accounts of even…
It was December 11, 1972, 45 years ago to the day. Astronauts Gene Cernan and Jack Schmitt had just stepped out of the lunar lander. And thus began one of humanity’s greatest road trips.
I really don’t understand how some people end up in politics. Sometimes you see decisions made that are so idiotic, so destructive, and just so wrong that is makes you wonder how the people behind them could even get elected to clean a toilet. This time, I’m specifically baffled by the mayor of the French city of…
Maybe I’ve been in Tokyo for too long, maybe we’ve all become desensitized to them in our age of Instagram and YouTube, but it’s fair to say that to stand out anymore, supercars have to be in unique specs. Thankfully, the supercar owners of Japan have no fear of modifying even the most expensive cars.
On Saturday, a nearly 12-minute video went on YouTube claiming to investigate its title: “Where are the Car Girls?” But the answer to that question couldn’t be found in the video. Instead, it was in the comments section—where a wider, more telling representation of the car industry decided to show up.
