Looking forward to this one. 5-litre supercharged V8, Ultra Blue, rear wheel drive, sounds like Zeus after he trod on a plug whilst going for a wee in the night
No mention of the US though
OK the headline's a bit extreme but I've not been on Jalopnik for a while but I have the past couple of days and...it's all boats and planes and link bait stuff. Where are the cars?
Spent an amazing day yesterday with Rolls Royce. I got to tour the factory and drive a Ghost Series II and a Wraith.
This applies to the UK but I'm sure it crosses international boundaries well
What????? Says everyone.
Formula E, the new electric racing series, starts next year. The races take place in cities around the world, and I reckon it'll fall flat on its face.
We recently got our hands on an Audi RS Q3 for a week. If you've not seen a Q3 it's kind of Focus sized but jacked up so it sits a little higher than a Focus.
I've just read the phrase "visceral bark" to describe a Nissan GT-R's exhaust note. Should this phrase be banned in car reviews?
I was at the Goodwood Festival of Speed today and happened to be in the race paddock just as the Le Mans cars were assembling. I hung around, took a ton of photos then videoed them all as they left to head to the track.
Day 1 at the Goodwood FoS is called the moving motor show. I was there yesterday to see and photograph all the new cars as well as all the competition machinery just sitting around.
Veterinarian Dr Ernie Ward decided to experience what it would be like for a dog left in a car on a hot day. He opened all the windows an inch or two and shut himself in a Honda for 30 minutes.
As a Brit I should theoretically like football, but I don't. Can't stand it. So I made this because TT riders = heroic and footballers = spoiled cry babies
Porsche and Lotus both revealed special edition cars today and both were pretty much the standard car with a race car inspired livery and a few optional extras thrown in as standard.
Unlike a lot of Jalopistas I'm not a fan of diesel engines. Here's what happens when a diesel engine decides it doesn't want to die quite yet. (The original video won't embed on Kinja as it's a Liveleak vid)
Various people have told me they've not been able to find live streams for race and practice action for this year's Isle of Man TT races, so I've found some and created a page with four live streams.
Because they take the boat back to the mainland with the fans after the races have finished, and because they give press conferences like this, where John McGuinness admitted to farting and following through just before the 2013 Senior TT.
