I have a real love-hate thing going on with Bugatti. Vintage Bugattis are some of the most stunning machines of any type I’ve ever seen. Modern Bugattis are impressive, but fundamentally stupid. This Bugatti Lifestyle brand stuff, though, leaves me completely un-conflicted. It’s a glimpse into some ultra-weird rich…
So one car has white lines and the other was a mirror? Are we sure this wasn’t actually an 80's project?
Back in 1999, Mini asked three British icons to come up with their own Mini designs for an upcoming exhibition celebrating the brand’s 40th anniversary. David Bowie was one of them. The car was good, but his remarks about the project stole the show.
On Thanksgiving, I like to feature a car from Turkey, because Turkey is a place that builds cars and turkey is a bird we traditionally eat on this day and I’m an idiot, at heart. So, on this Thanksgiving I’m delighted to present to you the Turcoto Uveyk, the happiest-goddamn looking truck in the world.
The Mercedes-Benz Concept IAA is pretty far from what we would call a production-ready concept, but since active wings became a common thing, this transforming active tail might just be the next step towards improved efficiency.
While I might not know what color the boathouse is at Hereford, I sure as hell drove the only Land Rover that was good enough for Judge Dredd. And the military-only 101 Forward Control delivers, up to two tons!
All I can say is that if you have the opportunity to drive a manual F-Type around Scotland in these last few sunny days left of this summer, don’t think about it for a second. Take a day off if you have to, because it’s well worth it.
A small village on the left bank of the river Tisza in Hungary hides one of the best-preserved industrial relics I have ever seen. If you wander along the flood prevention dyke near the village, you’ll see an old building with an enormous brick chimney towering above the trees: this is the old Tiszabercel water…
I’ll never forget my first time seeing a Miura in person. It was this car (an SV) in the *spectator parking lot* at the Americana Manhasset show in the fall of 2012, parked right next to a minivan. There are moments in life you never forget... this was one for me.
Koenigsegg went to Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps to set a new lap record for production cars with the One:1 last week. They managed to do that, ending practice Wednesday with a time of 2:32.14. It’s not the record they wanted to set or the one they deserve to set. I was there. The world, it seems, is against Koenigsegg.
The funny thing is that the P 4/5 Competizione is a very heavily modified road car, yet if could never be a road car again. Or a product.
I drove all night to make sure I got to the Ring in time for the Jalopnik bump(s) to be added to the SCG 003’s livery before it was shown to the public in the nearby village of Adenau. That’s at least ten extra horsepower right there, success is inevitable.
It’s a question a child might ask, but not a childish question. Sure, right now, we mammalian primates are calling all the shots here on Earth, but what if things had gone otherwise? We know that cephalopods like Squid and Octopi are really smart — what if they were the dominant life? And, more importantly, what would…
I worked with and machined TI6AlV4 and CP Grade 2 every day for years. I turned thousands of pounds of it into chips. For simple things it’s not a big deal if you’ve got the correct tooling. If you’re Eaton trying to replace 13 hydraulic valve assemblies in a single titanium valve assembly in a military helicopter…
Now im tempted to go visit next time I am in Budapest, in april.
Autobianchi oil filter. Right there!
Stinger training for terrorists. When trying to down an airliner, start from close range (<20ft) and gradually work your way back to 2-3 miles.
It's not the Sultan of Brunei that owns all those infamous cars, it's his brother and that brother has gone bust officially iirc. But since his brother is the Sultan and owns Brunei, the cars are all locked up in a storehouse near a coastal highway, guarded by former NZ special forces, but the cars are all left…
I was so confused when I looked at the post's author. I assumed you wrote this post.
