The picture really tells it all. Count the number of times I tried to correct a slide, going faster, going faster, going faster until oh shit fuck fuck fuck that’s a pole.
Harley is losing it with young people in America, and it’s not because the bikes are bad, as Regular Car Reviews explains. It’s because the bikes are un-ownable. They can’t escape the microcosm of Harley-Davidson the brand.
This is the 1988 Laurel Twincam 24V Turbo Medalist CLUB-L, which means it’s a top-of-the-line C33 Laurel, and I’m fairly sure it also means that it has Nissan’s RB20DET engine, a twin-cam, two-liter turbo straight six. More midsize executive cars need two-liter inline sixes.
Beep Beep. A vroom in the night. It’s your car. It’s time to give it a taste of the road with its tire-feet. Let your car go for a drive. You gotta do it, bud.
Irishman James Deane is currently sitting as the top qualifier for this weekend’s round of Formula Drift in Seattle, in a Nissan S15 Silvia. Back in 2013, he was wheeling a Mazda RX-7 on one of the tiniest tracks I have ever seen.
Every fiber of my being is compelling me to buy this giant pink dump truck I found on Craigslist for five grand and, please, I can’t afford to make this mistake.
What would you call a set of new 1.2- and 1.5-liter economy car engines? Pipsqueak? Whiskers? Nah. Ford went with Dragon. Very Game of Thrones, no?
Honda didn’t need to make their fun sports car mid-engine. But they did anyway and the world is richer for it.
Everyone has that one road they drove over and over again as they learned how to drive and love cars. Formula Drift’s Matt Field made the pilgrimage back to his boyhood road and took his thousand-horsepower pro car with him.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Do you have time to look for all the auto news you crave in multiple places? Hell no. You’re an important businessperson, and the WiFi in this subway station is terrible.
Got somewhere you need to go? Go there in an M5.
Understeer is the enemy of any driver, with the front of the car simply refusing to turn no matter how much you angrily saw at the wheel. Many people think it’s just a problem for front-wheel drive cars, but it’s just as bad for anyone with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Luckily, the technique for beating it is…
One corner at Rally Finland last weekend seemed committed to catching out and rolling as many cars as possible. (Count 10 rolls and five other crashes.) But the rally fans watching from the side of the road had other plans.
No one can stop you. You’re in a Plymouth Laser now.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
Watch this video and you’ll understand why people lose their minds over Rally Finland. I could tell you it’s the fastest event on the World Rally Championship calendar, but that wouldn’t explain it in the way that a car flying sideways through the air set up for another flat out corner does.
The consistently fastest event in the World Rally Championship is Rally Finland, beloved as much for its huge speeds as for its car-launching crests and jumps. Here’s the gnarliest one of the weekend.
I always think of NYC as the anti-car city. The traffic is terrible. The roads are terrible. Street parking is a scam and parking garages are too. But some incredible cars hide out here.
