The world ahead of me is nothing but red dirt and blue sky, bisected by a single snake of pavement. The population of this place is one 2018 Audi RS5, finally coming off the leash after agonizing in city traffic. And with 444 horsepower, you better believe it comes correct.
Let’s play a game of call and response. I say “Ford Mustang”, you say “Cars and Coffee mishaps.” I say “Tesla Model 3,” you say “panel gaps.” But if I say “Subaru BRZ,” you’re most likely going to first give a knowing nod of appreciation but then lament “needs more power.”
“Not a chance.” That’s how most of you will react when reading the headlines talking about the $50,000 Subaru WRX STI Type RA. Before slamming your fingers onto your rage-spit-covered keyboard and typing out your 2,500-word magnum opus of hatred, allow me a few words to explain how this is basically Subaru’s own…
The fog has a noticeable heft to it. Dense, heavy, gray air that sits tantalizingly out of range of your fingertips. If you could reach out and collect it in a jar, you’d then put that jar on a shelf and forever remind yourself of the English countryside. That’s where you have to go to find one of the greatest…
The Lamborghini Huracan is the best driving car the Italian automaker has ever built. Sure, the Gallardo is the best seller. The Aventador is the best at being a loud muscle car. The Miura is the best... well, it’s just the best one. It’s the Huracan, however, that is the one you’ll want to drive the fastest, for the…
Can front-wheel-drive be fun? In certain applications, yes it absolute can. My own 2000 Honda Civic Si that I previously owned was a perfect example of a great front-wheel-drive car. Still, more power is always a wonderful thing and the folks at Blood Type Racing set out to prove that idea.
Duncan Ende races in the Pirelli World Challenge series. His racing machine is a GT3-spec Ferrari 458. Today, we’re tossing him into something with a bit less power... but something that might be nearly as fun to drive; the new Mazda MX-5 Cup Car.
If you look at racing vehicles and try to figure out which make and…
You can’t afford the Hellcat. You want more than the 5.7-liter R/T has to offer. Say hello to the Dodge Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker... if you can remember all of that.
Cadillac has been cooking up some sweet V-Series machines for a few years now. Every new iteration brings about a more refined and compelling package. Such is the case with the all-new 2016 Cadillac ATS-V.
The Nissan GT-R has been a bit of a polarizing machine since it’s arrived years ago. Some love it while others feel it can be a bit soulless.
[Here’s a piece by our young F1 contributor Patrick Hoffstetter, from his Formula Fun series]
The Isle of Man is a small scenic stretch of land situated in a spot of sea between the United Kingdom and Ireland. It’s also the home to one of the most (if not THE most) insane bit of motorsports on the planet.
There are not a whole lot of four-passenger, two-door convertible vehicles out there on the market. It’s a weird category occupied by unique offerings. One such offering is the Audi A5. If you want a little more juice you jump to the Audi S5. There’s more out there though, and it arrives in the form of the Audi RS5…
Honda wants to position the 2015 NC700X as a dual-sport machine. That’s a bit generous, as our man Miles Branman found out after spending a bit of time with the machine. It’s less real-jungle-ready, but quite primed to tackle the urban jungle.
In 2006, Aston Martin decided it was time to take on the Nürburgring. This meant tackling the 24 Hour Endurance race, and the goal was to do it in a car that was very nearly one of its road-going street cars.
I didn’t completely understand the unadulterated love plied upon the Porsche 911. I know that it’s a supposed to be a pure driving machine. I know that it’s a precise instrument for a skilled enthusiast. I know that I still didn’t fully “get it”.
Jason Connor got his hands on a BMW M4, and he decided to see just how capable this two-door is.
