The 2019 McLaren 600LT Spider Is a Ruthless, Roofless Wonder The 2019 McLaren 600LT Spider Is a Ruthless, Roofless Wonder

Mercedes-Benz has AMG, BMW has M and Cadillac has V-Series. Surely McLaren of all companies has transcended this need for even sportier and more exclusive versions of already very sporty and exclusive cars?

Aston Martin Put Exhaust Tips Where God Intended, on the Roof Aston Martin Put Exhaust Tips Where God Intended, on the Roof

Because I am a cynical asshole, I can usually find a reason to be pessimistic about something. I’m also great to hang out with if you didn’t know this. But when it comes to top-exit exhausts? I’ll never have a bad thing to say about them because they are the purest embodiment of God’s will in automotive form. And the…

The Geneva Motor Show is right around the corner, which means that it’s time for some shadowy teasers of the stuff that automakers will reveal when official press conference time comes. From Subaru this year, we’ll have the Viziv Adrenaline Concept. And guys, I might be going out on a limb here, but it looks like a…

Where Are You Going to Put a Front Plate on a 2020 Toyota Supra? Where Are You Going to Put a Front Plate on a 2020 Toyota Supra?

An aesthetically unfortunate part of car ownership is that some states require you to stick a front license plate to your vehicle. Usually it’s fine, as modern bumpers are often designed with this in mind. But then there are cars like the 2020 Toyota Supra, which has a face that isn’t the most well-suited to have a…

Here's Exactly How Much the 2020 Ford Explorer Will Jump in Price Here's Exactly How Much the 2020 Ford Explorer Will Jump in Price

The 2020 Ford Explorer and its subsequent trims will be the most advanced (and sporty) Explorers to date, so I suppose it only follows that they won’t come cheaply either. They will be loaded with safety features and come with an ST and hybrid version, which will cause the price of the Explorer to jump by as much…

Watch Fast Five’s Stunt Coordinator Break Down Its Breathtaking Vault Chase Watch Fast Five’s Stunt Coordinator Break Down Its Breathtaking Vault Chase

As you all already know, I am a Fast and Furious stan. I love everything about those stupid movies, but there is not one scene I love more than the vault-dragging scene from Fast Five.

You know what’s aged well, besides me? This 1992 Dodge Viper. As twins, we were separated at birth, but now that our third decade apart draws close, we are ready to be reunited. Won’t you help us out?

I'm Confused, Are You All Not Already Rolling Around in Armored Cadillac Escalades? I'm Confused, Are You All Not Already Rolling Around in Armored Cadillac Escalades?

As I have outlined to you multiple times before, traveling in cars really isn’t my speed. Oh, I like owning them just fine, don’t get me wrong. Especially when they are covered in diamond dust—but I much prefer transit by submarines and planes. It’s gotten to the point where if I absolutely have to use a car to get to…

Green cars, as we all know, are good. But if you slap a set of bronze wheels on said green car? I’ll be on board with no questions asked. What I’m trying to say is I’m extremely here for this Toyota 86 British Green Limited. It can do no wrong.

McLaren Spiders Have the Best Feature McLaren Spiders Have the Best Feature

The McLaren 720S Spider Solves a Super Annoying Problem Before It Even Is One The McLaren 720S Spider Solves a Super Annoying Problem Before It Even Is One

It was only a matter of time before the McLaren 720S got its roof chopped off. All supercars seem to eventually do that. In photos, the rear visibility on the 720S seems like it would be horrible because its designers included a head fairing-type design, the hump or humps you sometimes see behind the seats of a…
