What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Honda Civic Type R? What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Honda Civic Type R?

Upon realizing recently that everyone around here has all the fun while I’m stuck doing insane management tasks, I decided to have some fun myself. My companion for the weekend is a 2018 Honda Civic Type R. Ask me what you want to know about it?

Your Spectacular On-The-Ground Thursday Le Mans Photo Gallery Is Here Your Spectacular On-The-Ground Thursday Le Mans Photo Gallery Is Here

Some outlets are perfectly content covering the greatest race in the world, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, with stock and wire service images. And... well we do that too, I’m not gonna lie, but this year we had to send one of our own ace shooters over there to go the extra mile. Here’s his report from Thursday’s day of…

The other day in the office we were trying to figure out if anyone still made dogleg gearboxes in the modern era, and then our intrepid intern reminded us that the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S had a dogleg seven-speed manual. The shifter itself looks super cheap for a $200,000 car, but the layout is good!

Most things are terrible, but Radwood—the grassroots car show that celebrates the rides of the 1980s and 1990s—is good. It’s back at the end of this month in the San Francisco Bay Area. Once again Jalopnik is getting involved with the show, and we want you to get involved too! Update: It’s past the 2 p.m. ET deadline,…

Comment Of The Day: Worse Is Better Edition Comment Of The Day: Worse Is Better Edition

With time and distance, almost any failure in the car marketplace can become a desirable oddity. Case in point: the BMW 318ti, also known as the E36 compact. Why did writer Louis Keene choose it, above all others, for a cross-country road trip?

Radwood Is Back And It's Coming To San Francisco On June 24. Are You Rad Enough To Go? Radwood Is Back And It's Coming To San Francisco On June 24. Are You Rad Enough To Go?

It feels like Radwood, the car show that gloriously celebrates the angular, analog and awesome cars of the 1980s and ‘90s, has been a part of our collective modern car culture forever. But it hasn’t! The show’s only a year old. Now, after making a huge, neon splash in 2017, the show is coming home at the end of this…

I Proved The BMW X6 M Is Actually Useful I Proved The BMW X6 M Is Actually Useful

Like many people, I could never quite understand the BMW X6. And I can understand the BMW X6 M even less. Help me out, friend: do you get why BMW makes an SUV that’s essentially the X5, but with a steep, sloping roof purely for dubious aesthetics, then has the gall to add a twin-turbo V8 engine with 567 horsepower,…

If You Want To Know How Good Modern Cars Are, Drive A Cheap Small Car Now If You Want To Know How Good Modern Cars Are, Drive A Cheap Small Car Now

There’s a Plymouth Colt that lives in my neighborhood in Brooklyn. The name alone should tell you how old it is, and what it is—a miserable shitbox of a car from the 1980s. I don’t know how long it’s been living there, since at least 2003, I’m told, but one thing is for sure: it’s a survivor.
