Ah, first world problems... Down here, in Brazil, it really doesn’t matter if you car is locked or not. Things will be stolen anyway. If there’s nothing to steal, they’ll take the rims or the entire car, towed if necessary.

Not only in the states my friend... This kind of crap is everywhere! In Brazil Mercedes sheds a lot of GLC Coupés and BMW even more of those hideous X4 and X6Ms. And it boggles my mind how someone on their full possession of mental faculties, would pay more than HALF A MILLION BRL for something that looks like a turd Read more

Sometimes you don’t need a lot of horsies to go fast. Look at the Brazilian DKW Carcará, for example, which with only a three-cylinder, two-stroke 1,100 cm³ engine with only 104 hp got to 214 km/h, or 133 mph

Do you want to feel even more outraged? I’m from Brazil, where the EcoSport was created, and here it’s an upmarket premium car. People actually aspire to buy this two-story tall Fiesta. Read more
