Recently, Parker Nirenstein from supercar YouTube series Vehicle Virgins went to a Michelin press event where there was an autocross. You know, actual hard driving that requires skill and precision, the likes of which we don’t see on supercar YouTube very often. He is immediately called out by Alex Roy. It is…
A controversial bill that would have protected drivers who plow into crowds of protesters will most likely fade away from the North Carolina legislature, a decision most certainly reached after the horrifying vehicle attack on a group of people counter-protesting Neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Virginia over the…
We say we like weird cars around here. But how weird are you really willing to live with? If you’re up for living in the strangest form of opulent Franco-Italian luxury there is, consider the Citroën SM. You have no idea how great this thing is.
The future is here! The future is here! Hey everyone, we’re being told the future is here!!!!!!!! Or at least it will be, with cars that drive themselves and automotive enthusiasts that are dead. We’re going to be yelling about that and other things today at the New York Auto Show, and you should see it.
The very concept of driving will soon be dead, we’re told. But not if we have anything to do with it. To rage against the dying light, we (and a panel of experts) will be arguing full-throatedly about them this Saturday at the New York Auto Show. Come hang.
Great news, everyone! So many of you RSVP’d for Jalopnik’s Car Trivia Night at the New York Auto Show—which is TONIGHT—that David Tracy’s Jeep miraculously started working again. Hooray! But still more of you should come so I can see your beautiful, shining faces.
After extensive research and roadside wrenching, at long last we’ve determined the reason David Tracy’s 1948 Jeep off-roading project has had so many problems: it’s because you are not coming to Jalopnik’s New York Auto Show trivia party on Saturday.
“Bad welds,” he says. “Too easy to not wrap around a telephone pole,” he says. This is the last, most extreme version of the Dodge Viper we’re talking about here! Somebody shut this geezer up and make him show some respect!
Faraday Future showed up to CES this year with a real car that seemingly actually exists, claiming some absolutely absurd performance figures during its hour-and-a-half long presentation. Riding along in such a quick car looks pretty terrifying.
There are exactly two types of TV shows about cars: sensationalized “build” dramas set to slow-motion footage of sparks, and Top Gear knockoffs. The latter “boy’s trip” motif tends to be a little more bearable so I’m excited to see what my friends have in store for the third season of /Drive on NBC Sports.
The news of Brock Yates’ passing this week hit me hard. Many lost a family member, a friend, and even a partner in crime. I lost a hero.
APEX: The Story Of The Hypercar is a fascinating documentary that follows the ideology and innovation behind the world’s current crop of performance heavyweights from Porsche, Ferrari, McLaren, Koenigsegg and Pagani as it attempts to define them. But there’s one spoken line in the first two minutes of the film that…
Despite a recent ad campaign touting the new 2017 Mercedes E-Class and its “Drive Pilot” driver assistance system as the “first self-driving car,” you actually still have to actively drive it. Sorry.
I found myself one late August evening in 2008 listening to the tick-tick of various components and liquids contracting as they cooled, watching the shimmy of heat coming from the hood of my black on black 2006 Chevrolet C6 Z06 after a thoroughly abusive and soul-releasing drive through the canyons of Manhattan. On…
In the latest episode of The Simpsons Homer finds a Morgan 3-Wheeler in his garage because after 27 seasons, who even cares anymore. Enjoy musical number “Chubby Dude In A Tiny Car” and a guest appearance by Jay Leno. Yeah, go ahead and watch it here! Not still at work, are you?
If you’re an automotive engineer, or just someone good at sneaking into convention centers, I’d like to cordially invite you to hear me blather on in front of a huge projection of slides! I’m talking today at the Society of Automotive Engineers’ World Congress at the Cobo Center in Detroit. Come and heckle me!
