Earlier this month, stories began to pop up about the “last” 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon ever made listed in Australia for more than $320,000 ($450,000 Australian). That was surprising, considering that Dodge had already sold the last Demon, and it didn’t look like this one.
The Ferrari Formula One team is back and ready for a new race season, full of opportunities to celebrate its 90th anniversary and likely finish second a lot. But the car Ferrari will race looks a bit different this year, and not just because of its new black accents: It’ll have a matte finish, for performance rather…
In the 2000 Toyota Avalon, the year is 2002, not because the Chamber of Secrets came out, Avril Lavigne entered the music scene or the camera phone became mainstream, but because the car’s calendar stops at 2018, forcing owners to either find a year with matching weekdays or be annoyed by their dashboard display for…
It has begun. Just over a year after the Lamborghini Urus and its nearly 650-horsepower twin-turbo V8 debuted as the world’s fastest production SUV, Bentley has an answer in this modern battle of the super SUVs: the Bentley Bentayga Speed, which Bentley says beats the Urus by a full 0.5 mph.
In the kind of situation that would make anyone think they were imagining things, Houston-area resident Beverly Havard started noticing changes to her van each time she got in: An out-of-place seat, some adjusted mirrors—you know, things that could easily feel imagined.
In a plot that couldn’t have been scripted better in a Saturday-morning cartoon, an Alabama man failed to rob a store last week when a cashier didn’t take him seriously. Hours later, he tried to steal a Honda Civic and failed, again, because he couldn’t figure out its manual transmission.
You, dear reader, look like the kind of person who never wants to sleep again, perhaps because it’s time consuming and counterproductive. For that reason, we come to you with news: You won’t ever have to again, because as soon as you close your eyes, this image will be all you see, every time.
Former Renault CEO Carlos Ghosn, arrested in November on allegations of financial misconduct, is awaiting trial in a Tokyo jail without bail. The Lebanonese government even gifted a mattress to Ghosn last year, since he was reportedly sleeping on a mat. But oh, how different things were a few years ago, when Ghosn…
With rain turning its dirt course into slop in San Diego on Saturday, the Monster Energy Supercross track crew put down a chemical drying agent to curb some of the mud. But while it was meant to help make the race safer, the aftermath wasn’t pretty—riders say they have severe rashes and trashed bikes because of the…
Rocky times for Jaguar Land Rover and Daimler, more drama between Nissan and Renault, and recalls, recalls recalls. All of this and more in The Morning Shift for Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019.
Certain people in this world are allowed to make a wide path around the rules, no matter how strict they might be. But when it comes to the current generation of the Ford GT supercar, not a soul is above the rules—not even the people who race the car for a living, or who have won their class at 24 Hours of Daytona in…
Like most other carmakers, Aston Martin isn’t stopping at just one SUV. Aston Martin was never going to stop at just one SUV. Meet the shadowy silhouette of the Lagonda All-Terrain Concept, an electric SUV set to debut in March, into a world already welcoming the Audi E-Tron.
At some point in my life, I had a one realization that would change things forever forever: It makes absolutely no sense to put on “real” clothes if you’re driving somewhere but not getting out of the car—or, in some of my cases, just driving across town to visit your immediate family.
NASCAR, which has long been against taking wins away from competitors who fail car inspection, announced this week that the era of going to goofy lengths to avoid replacing the name on a trophy is over. If a winning car is illegal after the race, it will get disqualified—something that hasn’t happened in decades.
There are a lot of things a person can do with $100,000, should that person be fortunate enough to have $100,000 at their disposal. They could use it as a huge downpayment on a house, put a kid through college with one transaction, or, if we’re being truly practical, buy a set of used Bugatti Veyron wheels.
January sales charts at Mitsubishi North America came to us last week with bad news: A total of negative three (-3) people bought a Mitsubishi Lancer, our old, discontinued friend, last month. That, as sad as it is, puts year-to-date sales on the world’s rally car for the road at negative three.
The figurative dismantling of the decaying Texas World Speedway, once a massive, high-speed oval that hosted the top tiers of U.S. auto racing, began when those tiers bypassed it for more convenient, better-located venues as early as the 1970s. Decades later, the actual dismantling has begun, as the first houses in a…
Fans of well-handling, chronically underpowered (to some) little sports coupes might have gotten a bit of a scare this week when reports came out that the next-generation Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ may be canceled. But Subaru said everyone can chill, because it’s moving ahead with a next-gen BRZ.
If anything, the year 2019 will be a win for car colors in the U.S.—a dismal land where streets are often a boring blur of black, white and gray cars. In addition to highlighter-yellow Chevrolet Camaros and snot-green Honda Civics, this model year will also get lime-green Dodge Challenger and Charger performance trims.
Electric SUV racing as a sport is a hard thing to sell, for obvious reasons. But a new series trying to make the idea cool, Extreme E, has a different approach in terms of appeal—competing in places like the rain forest, and televising races with “Blue Planet meets Dakar”-style documentaries.
