I don’t know about you, but when I see a lawn and some really expensive cars parked on it, my first instinct is to hoon my Mercedes CLK GTR. You get me, right?
Beads of sweat snaked down my back. It was only 80 or so degrees outside, but clad in thick jeans, boots, a long-sleeved henley, a black motorcycle jacket, riding gloves and a black motorcycle helmet, I strained to balance an unwieldy motorcycle on a blacktop while the sun beat mercilessly down upon me. And everyone…
Goddammit, do you see this bullshit? Do you see it? Are your eyes perceiving it? Fuck this unscathed triangle of rainwater.
I’m close to accepting the crossover takeover. I’m close. Like with the revival in high-waisted pants, I’ve accepted that I have no control over the matter. But damn do cars like the 2017 Jaguar E-Pace make it hard.
Last night, the Autobahn Indoor Speedway in West Nyack saw a karting smackdown of epic proportions. Readers went toe-to-toe against Jalopnik writers and Formula E race car drivers. It was nuts, and we can’t thank you all enough for coming out to be a part of the noise.
There is no shortage of craziness on the roads.
Manhattan sunlight streamed in through the blinds, lighting up the small flecks of glitter still dancing in the air from the night before. Someone was knocking at the door. Tap tap tap.
Say you’re bored at the office one day and you decide, hey, let’s make a video where we fire 700 rounds at once through a machine gun with a suppressor and see what happens. You’re really curious to see what red, hot and melted metal looks like.
My big gripe with open-wheel race cars is that they are so far removed from any car that I would ever own, drive or interact with that they bear little relevance to my life. Which is why Subaru’s WRX STI Type RA was so cool: it started out as a normal STI that you or I could buy. But then Prodrive got their hands on…
Summer is officially here, which means you have even more of a reason to go outside and detail your car. While detailing the exterior is always important, not everyone remembers to do the engine bay. Here’s how you do it.
Because laws are written by people and people are oftentimes strange, it’s of no surprise that the laws themselves can be weird. Especially automotive law. Holy shit do some of them make no sense!
On Friday night, something bizarre and very nearly catastrophic happened: an Air Canada flight, descending into San Francisco International Airport, tried to land on the taxiway instead of on the runway, where four other fully loaded planes sat.
Here’s a teaser photo of the upcoming Apollo IE (pronounced, I think, as “eye-ee” and not “ee”). It will apparently have tons of carbon fiber, which we all know makes a car Very Fast! Consider me teased, tickled and thoughtful.
I heard a really smart saying once: If you have a minor problem, burn down everything and start over from scratch. Problem solved!
Our cars are our metal babies. We pour so much time, effort and love into them to make them run smoothly. We spend sleepless nights fixing them up. We become well-acquainted with sunrises.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
If you didn’t already know, the highlight of the Goodwood Festival of Speed is to watch professional drivers drive as quickly as they can from the bottom of the hill to the top of the hill. Behind the wheel—the right-hand wheel, mind you—of a Subaru WRX STI, I did this myself and managed to not kill myself or anybody…
Last week hundreds of thousands of people flocked to Chichester, England, to attend the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Judging by the sheer size of the crowds and how many acres the Festival spans alone, setting up and breaking down everything must be a logistical nightmare. This year, however, Festival employees…
You should never, ever, ever drink and drive. But has anyone ever thought of giving the car a drink and then driving it? These clever, thinkin’ men in Scotland sure did.
