Let’s be absolutely clear here: all these terms are pretty stupid. I mean, generally, I think the very idea of Supercars are sort of stupid as it is, massively expensive, absurdly capable and fast vehicles that are doomed to spend most their lives immobile in some jackass’ climate-controlled car-spa. Still, they’re…
The Lexus LFA supercar was almost beyond comprehension. Jalopnik bossman Patrick George once described it perfectly “Its name stands for Lexus Fucking Awesome.” Lexus knows we want another one, but will they ever build it? Well, it hasn’t said yes, but it hasn’t closed the door either.
Most of the time when we look at the high-performance cars everyone dreams of having one day, numbers are big—horsepower, cylinder count, displacement, price tag. But we often ignore some of the most incredible numbers performance cars can give us: their hilariously low fuel-economy numbers.
Hyundai is working on some kind of sports car project, as the company appears to have confirmed at CES. The exact nature of the car isn’t clear, but it really should be a supercar. The stars are aligned. The time is right.
A couple years back, a little shop in Washington making carbon-bodied hot rods with Ford Focus SVT headlights took the title of the world’s fastest production car away from Bugatti. Then they quietly disappeared.
You know those companies that sell exotic car driving experiences? Where you can pay some money to drive a Lamborghini or Porsche or GT-R or a Corvette or whatever? Those are great, sure, and they give a lot of us time in cars we could never afford, but they come with a pretty deep inherent flaw. But I think I know a…
While you, mere mortal of average income whose bank account cyclically drops faster than those amusement-park rides, sit in your living room and think about how unfortunate your upcoming monthly bills are since it’s the holidays, the wealthy inhabitants of this world are buying more and more Ferraris.
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.
Did I trip over a frayed extension cord, die, and get uploaded into a heaven dreamed up by adrenaline-addled robots? Or are we all just going to accept that the Apollo Intensa Emozione is an actual car?
For a city that loves supercars so much, there aren’t really many ways to experience one in Tokyo without owning one yourself. Unlike other large cities in the world, supercar rentals or sharing services are practically non-existent here. There are plenty of companies that offer rentals on Japanese cars, such as…
I tend to give a lot of shit to the Bugatti Veyron (and now, the Chiron) but I do it because, well, it’s worth it. The idea of $2.5 million-dollar cars making over 1000 horsepower and capable of 240+ MPH that mostly do nothing but sit in garages is ridiculous. But a $36,000 car making more than 1000 horsepower and…
Ever since Gumpert went bankrupt we’ve seen hints and signs of a possible Apollo resurrection, and even an actual car last year—the Apollo Arrow at the Geneva Motor Show—but aside from an announcement last October that more would be coming, we’ve seen pretty much nothing. Until now! Here’s video of a new Apollo given…
I’m not sure how well you follow medical and pharmaceutical-related crime news, but it seems two doctors from Mobile, Alabama, Xiulu Ruan and John Patrick Couch were convicted earlier this year of illegally prescribing narcotics and other drugs—you know, running a pill mill. Both doctors had impressive car…
So far, 2017 hasn’t given us much to look at, unless you enjoy watching protracted dumpster fires. So, of course, the logical thing to do is to look back. Ten years, to be exact, which brings us to 2007 and the birth one of the greatest terrible car movies ever made: Redline.
This compilation is 13 minutes long and I watched the whole damn thing while roaring with laughter.
He’s all over YouTube: the bro with a handheld camera and a “crew” who makes a channel where he ogles supercars, including the ones he inexplicably owns, and then racks up the views and the followers to a pumping soundtrack of bad electronic music. How can you follow in his footsteps?
In case you’re on the fence about trading in those garbage bags full of money you have stashed behind the water heater for BMW’s upcoming halo car, the M8, maybe this will help. It’s the first audio from BMW’s M8 prototype from when it was at the Nürburgring 24 Hours this past weekend.
The sports-car market can be a strange place. Cars that aren’t all that special can command a crazy premium while others can be had at a relative bargain. If you’re on the hunt for a V12 Lamborghini, which is really the only way to buy a Lambo, now is the time to grab the awesome Murcielago.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t have $20,000 to blow on a nine-day luxury rally in my nonexistent supercar. If I did, maybe I’d understand this better: Washington State Patrol stopped more than 10 cars at the Gold Rush Rally in just two counties for going at or around 100 mph on public roads.
