Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn, in response to a question from Roadshow, claimed that sports cars are still important despite sinking sales because “they are a testimony of technology and of the brand.” It’s a nice sentiment, but it rings hollow considering Nissan’s current lineup of outdated sports cars and…
As an engineer, I am naturally drawn towards shiny, complex car parts. So at this year’s Paris Motor Show, I went around to every pavilion and took pictures of beautiful transmission, engine and other car part displays to share with you, Jalopnik’s illustrious readers.
Next year, Ferrari celebrates its 70th birthday. It’s a big deal! They made 70 different paint jobs just to celebrate it. Here are all 70 in one spot.
We oohed and aahed ourselves stupid over the lovely Buick Avenir Concept in 2015. It was absolutely gorgeous and its proportions were effortlessly good. And now it’s coming to the market—sort of.
Hyundai showed off an “interim” version of their 2017 World Rally Championship competitor at the Paris Motor Show knowing that they’re still tweaking everything from its powertrain to its aerodynamics, but it’s still among the hottest of all hatches to behold. Drool with us at the close-ups.
When Mercedes unveiled its new AMG Formula One hypercar project, they said it would have the drivetrain from its F1 car. We were skeptical, as that would just be absurd. But Mercedes says it’s being serious – it’ll have a 1.6-liter turbo V6 screaming to over 10,000 RPM in a street-legal car.
I’m at the Paris Motor show, so I’ve spent the past hour simply sitting next to the Honda Civic Type R and drooling. I also took a break from my salivary activities to take a couple pictures. Check them out.
Night falls, drawing yet another day of the fighting to a close. You lean your head back against the Ram Rebel TRX Concept’s headrest and close your eyes, lulled by the engine’s grumble. You loosen up the six-point harness slightly. It’s safe, but it makes it hard to reach for your gun.
Hot on the wheels of Audi’s announcement of the fast, quintuple-banger RS3 sedan, Audi has just revealed the RS3 LMS racecar based on the new RS3 sedan. It looks like the RS3's evil supervillian version, and, at around $110-$130,000, it’s one of the cheapest ways to get into a genuine racecar.
You like blades and edges and that crazy Predator grille? That is literally what the Lexus UX Compact Crossover is made of. What a scary machine! I am deeply afraid of this car.
Ferrari turns 70 next year, and to celebrate, the company will offer 350 special edition cars— five different vehicles painted in 70 liveries dedicated to the most famous Ferrari drivers in history. Here are a couple of those liveries.
Hyundai’s brand new N-division seems to be honoring the secret request of every hoser who’s mispronounced the marque’s name as “Hoon-day.” Their new racing-focused concept isn’t just a preview of N-cars to come, but a caged track beast with Lambo doors that I would spend many days hooning if given the chance.
Just look at this thing. Take your eyes, and look at it. Because it is marvelous.
For some reason, BMW has decided the world needs a car between its X1 small crossover and its X3 Also-Small Crossover. So here’s another small crossover for when a small crossover and a small crossover just aren’t enough. It’s the BMW Concept X2, and it looks angry, like it wants you to die.
Mercedes wants to be at the very top of the luxury electric vehicle category by 2025, so today, it showed the world a zany looking crossover that will form the foundation of a new brand called “EQ.” The thing looks bonkers, but I don’t care because just look at the power and range numbers.
More than anything else in the world, I hate not being able to feel the wind in my hair when I drive my Ferrari LaFerrari. Hate it! I wrote a bunch of angry letters to Maranello on my personal stationery, yelling about my displeasure. I pressed very hard into the paper to make a point.
When Audi debuted the new five-cylinder RS3 hatchback, we had but one question: “When’s it coming to America?” And Audi said it more than likely would, just not in hatchback form, because us Americans just don’t buy those fancy luxury hatches the Europeans love. Here’s the one we are getting, for sure and officially:…
Dear America: when was the last time we actually woke up to good news? I think for me it was sometime last year, when Martin Shkreli got arrested. At last we finally have something good to wake up to and look forward to in the future: this is what the next Honda Civic Type R will look like. And holy crap, it is…
