The world’s most realistic racing simulator puts Ferrari F1 engineering in your den for $90,000


Turn three at Imola, the storied Italian race track that claimed Ayrton Senna’s life in 1994, is coming up frighteningly fast. My left foot jams on the brakes as I hammer the paddles to downshift. Too late. My Formula 1 ride slams up against the metal barrier, its snarling V-8 engine instantly silenced. Fortunately I’m […]

Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Concept sticks two turbos on a V-8 drag car


Like a mirage in the desert, Las Veg4s lures people to its embrace by promising things it has no intention of delivering. I wouldn’t go so far as to say Ford Racing will never build a production version of the drag-strip only Ford Mustang CobraJet powered by a Coyote V-8 paired with massive twin-turbos, but the lack […]

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray arrives with edges sharpened

Slideshow: 60 Years of Corvette History

In a rational world, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray wouldn’t exist. The very idea of launching a two-seat sports car named after a World War II ship powered by a truck-sized V-8 goes against every trend line on every chart in every automaker’s boardroom. Yet here it is, the seventh generation of America’s most venerated […]

Mini backflip a snowy daredevil first

After a century of hurtling fast cars over cliffs and off ramps, it’s difficult to find something that hasn’t been done, but could be with the right combination of machine and driver. This weekend, Mini managed to pull off just such a stunt thanks to a modified Mini Countryman John Cooper Works and rally racer Guerlain Chicherit […]

Mercedes Ener-G-Force concept imagines the SUV of 2025

Every year, the Los Angeles Auto Show hosts a challenge among automotive designers to concoct far-flung ideas about the future of transportation. This year’s theme asked what the law enforcement rides of 2025 might look like, and the sketchers at Mercedes-Benz were so enamored with their design they built a life-size version, creating a Gelandewagon […]

750-hp Plymouth street rod built by NASCAR’s Ray Evernham races to the auction block

January’s welter of classic car auctions in Arizona, led by the Barrett-Jackson extravaganza, often include several custom-built hot rods whose value depends entirely on the builders’ skill. Here’s one that comes with an unusual pedigree: the body of a 1964 Plymouth Belvedere coupe mated to the underpinnings of a modern NASCAR race car by team […]

The Stingray arrives

Argue yourself blue in the face, but I and millions of others will not be swayed from the belief that the 1963-67 Chevrolet Corvette Stingrays were the most beautiful cars ever designed and built in America. (Pipe down, Duesenberg fans.) Paging through Flickr ahead of Sunday’s launch of the seventh-generation Corvette, I’m struck by how […]

Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept turns toward science fiction

Let’s start by saying that the Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept, revealed at the Detroit Auto Show today, is not a preview of 2014 Hyundai Genesis which will debut 12 months from now. Despite rumors, the Concept is purely an indication of the direction Hyundai intends to take with its premium models — the Genesis and, […]

Original 1966 Batmobile put up for sale by creator George Barris

Over the decades, Batman has relied on a fleet of cars, from a plain red convertible to the SWAT-team capable Tumbler of the Dark Knight movies. This car, however, remains “the” Batmobile for many fans — the first vehicle modified by customizer George Barris for the 1966 TV show. In January, Barris will sell it […]

Dogs taught to drive by animal shelter; cats left to their own defenses

Because the world can’t get strange enough, an animal training school in New Zealand has set out to prove that dogs have enough smarts to drive cars at low speeds, given weeks of instruction and a special set of paw controls. This video suggests they’ve succeeded, finally answering the question of what dogs would do […]

Kate Upton washes the Mercedes CLA for the Super Bowl, poorly

Kate Upton may be one of the world’s hottest models at the moment, and Mercedes-Benz may be paying several million dollars for her to star in its upcoming Super Bowl ad, but this 90-second teaser of Upton “washing” a new Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class sedan leaves me disturbed. My God, those sponges look like they came half off at […]

Volkswagen reveals the XL1, a 261-mpg Beetle for the 22nd century

Eleven years ago, the head of Volkswagen popped out of a capsule-shaped vehicle barely able to hold two people and announced his ambition to construct the most efficient car the world has ever seen. Today, VW revealed the production version of that car known as the XL1, which it vows will travel 261 mpg on […]

At Sweden’s Speed Weekend, where jet-powered insanity hurtles across ice


For the past five winters, thousands of people from across Europe have gathered on the frozen surface of a Swedish lake to test the speed potential of every kind of vehicle imaginable. This year’s Speed Weekend lineup included a motorized bathtub on treads, a 40-foot Lincoln Navigator limousine, and several rides best described as ramjets on sleds […]

Mustang Mach 40, a custom ’60s-flavored supercar, coming to Gran Turismo


The real trouble with the massive SEMA car customizers’ convetion in Las Vegas is that impressive works tend to get overlooked by corporate cosplay and overchromed behemoths. Thankfully, the team behind Sony’s Gran Turismo video game managed to find a worthy candidate for their annual award and invitation to become an in-game ride — the […]
