If you are lucky enough to own one of the 499 Ferrari 458 Speciale Apertas ever produced, you’re probably familiar with its price—over $650,000. You probably also know that you need insurance to make it legal to drive on most public streets, a requirement that got one 458 driver in trouble in London earlier this…
What makes a car an “old money” car? It’s hard to come up with an exact set of qualifications, but you know one when you see it, as two Londoners explain on tour of the city’s more—ahem—established neighborhoods in a very “new money” Bentley Bentayga.
Incredibly, only two people suffered minor injuries as these two stories of red iconic London bus plowed into cars, all while passengers inside the bus were yelling for the driver to stop. The number 254 bus was on Lower Clapton Road in London when it drove into the back of a small SUV, which it proceeded to push into…
Six thieves arrived on three mopeds at a jewelry store in London on Monday night and robbed the place before leaving on a single moped, having abandoned one at the scene and crashed another, according to the Guardian. Six people on a single moped! The escape, somehow, was successful.
Transport for London, which regulates and controls the British capital city’s subways, buses, and taxis, said today that it won’t be renewing Uber’s license to operate in the city at the end of September. The company will have 21 days to appeal the decision, according to The New York Times. Uber can still operate…
In a city like London, where architecture from many centuries past sits among modern skyscrapers, a show like the London City Concours that unites great cars old and new seems perfectly at home. I visited the event this summer on a break from Japan. It was the first event of its kind, and as inaugural shows go, this…
In between chasing Paganis through the Tuscan countryside and inhaling tire smoke at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, I spent a couple of weeks in London. It’s a city seeping with history and culture—and some very good cars, if you know where to look.
After the London-based rich kid who calls himself “Lord” Aleem was pulled over in his new Lamorghini Aventador SV Roadster, the YouTube exotic car guy—you know the type, new Lambos, R8s and Bentleys everywhere—got caught on camera berating the police. Way to look sympathetic!
“It was as though the whole county of Hampshire was lying back and opening her well-bred legs,” wrote Boris Johnson, dude who used to run London and now helped run the UK out of the EU about wheeling a Ferrari F430, “to be ravished by the Italian stallion.”
In case you’re unfamiliar with the 28.4 liter four-cylinder known as the Beast of Turin, start your week with some fireworks!
Five airports with over 1.2 million arrivals and departures every year. Welcome to London, where planes fly in giant circles!
Okay don’t laugh because this is actually horrific. DON’T LAUGH, but a huge crowd in London banded together to push a bus off of a unicyclist, after his legs and dreadlocks became trapped underneath it.
An iconic London double-decker bus was just driving around London, doing its thing, when it hit some low-hanging branches and got its top completely peeled back like the people inside were delicious, delicious sardines. Which isn't very nice.
London's Metropolitan Police is out with a new study that estimates over 6,000 cars were stolen in the city using electronic key spoofing technology, accounting for an average of 17 vehicles lifted each day.
You studied for years to take the SAT. You worked even harder to get into medical school. But all that work has absolutely nothing – and I mean nothing – on London's test for taxi drivers, AKA The Knowledge. And just watching a guy recite just one little route is mind-bending.
The London-to-Ashford train line must be the happiest in all of existence. That's the only explanation I have for an older guy, apparently intoxicated yet still dapper on his suit, starting a massive, clapping, sing-a-long.
Some maniac is on the loose in London "on a quest to transform great cars into 'Ultimate Wheels,' and he's just taken an angle grinder to a 1989 Ferrari 412, begetting the first Ferrari El Camino-style pickup. It's actually much prettier than it sounds.
An armored 1979 Land Rover Series III is on eBay right now, which supposedly enforced order in the siege of London's Iranian embassy in 1980 and the London Poll Tax Riots ten years later. Seller also claims the Rover retired to TV stardom on "Juliet Bravo." Pedigree or no, it's a beautiful beast.
Some poor unfortunate soul had their Lamborghini Aventador completely smushed in the posh (yeah I said it) neighborhood of Knightsbridge in London today. But what happened? And where is the driver?
