I like Ford Mustangs and I like Lamborghini Gallardos. Both, and separately. But if they are smashed together to make some kind of ungodly automotive mash-up? I’m not sure about that one. And yes, it is the same one that we first saw in 2010, which feels like approximately 10,000 years ago.
There was a Lamborghini Urus parked outside the hotel where I am currently staying at for the media launch, so I can already tell you that it is very large. It has massive wheels and a tall stance. But besides that, what do you want to know about it?
When I look in the mirror now, it gives me pause. I stop. I lean in closer. Is this me? Yes, it is. But, a new fact is now indisputable, as unbelievable as I once though it to be. I never imagined this would happen, but it did—after driving a mere two Ford Mustangs, I am a Mustang Woman now. Damn it.
At some point or another, we all need to go shopping for a car. New or used, it doesn’t matter because you always need to keep your wits about you when making a big purchase like that. What are some red flags to look out for when buying a car?
On the tight and viciously twisty Mallorcan mountain roads, I watched the 2019 Porsche Macan S leading me handle a hairpin with more ferocity than a mid-size crossover has any right to. It leaned heavily into its suspension and from the outside, it looked quite precarious. But, as we were keeping up with it just fine…
There’s a new BMW 8 Series out, but it will never eclipse what the original 8 offered: A sky-high asking price, natural aspiration, V12 availability and styling that radically departed from what BMW was offering at the time. What makes the original car memorable today is how much of an outlier it was in the early…
I love seeing cars in movies. They can easily make a scene way more exciting. The problem is that not everything about the cars in those movies is, uh, accurate. Excluding pretty much everything from the Fast and Furious universe (because that’s too easy of an answer), it seems like movies tend to make a lot of car…
Occasionally, I get distracted by the bigger and flashier stuff BMW offers, like the new 8 Series and the new Z4, and I forget that the best driver’s BMW actually already exists. It’s the 2 Series—and, more specifically, the M2 Competition. Shame, shame, shame on me.
General Motors and Cadillac, as we have found, both enjoy building very cool and opulent concept cars and then never doing anything about them ever again. Weird!
Once thought of as purely myth, we now know that the midengine Corvette is no tall tale. It is real, it exists in our dimension and it was in southwest Florida, soaking up some sun last June like a fresh-faced college graduate.
“I think Nissan’s lost,” said Rob Fuller, leaning back in his chair at the shop where he pours his blood and sweat into those cars, as he’s done for decades. He thought for a moment, twirling absentmindedly at his mustache. “Well, I can’t say it’s lost. It has a new direction. And I’m just not a part of it.”
Volkswagen’s EV onslaught, Carlos Ghosn messiness, General Motors’ Mexican production and more await you in The Morning Shift for Friday, Dec. 7, 2018.
Yes, I am aware Transformers: The Last Knight came out last year, but I only got around to finally watching it this week. SHUT UP. As such, I came away positively enraged over a decision involving a Citroën DS and a Lamborghini Centenario. It was a seemingly small decision, but it means THE WORLD.
This past summer, the world saw a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sell at RM Sotheby’s Monterey Car Week auction for a staggering $48.4 million—making it the most expensive car ever sold at auction. Know what else is disgusting? This makes the Ferrari officially worth more than its weight in gold.
While riding a motorcycle might have once seemed like a very masculine activity, that’s definitely not the case today. More and more women are getting into motorcycles and female ridership has climbed within the last decade by significant numbers.
There’s definitely no shortage of cars in movies. There are movies about cars, movies about driving and movies not about cars but where cars do plenty of stunts. The problem is that sometimes directors and editors get sloppy and mistakes appear onscreen.
Electrification doesn’t have to be reserved just for the upcoming, futuristic cars. Sometimes, we can take old, classic cars and turn them into EVs, too. It’s better for the environment this way. Aston Martin agrees, which is why it’s rolling out a new plan to release a reversible EV powertrain conversion.
Safety standards for cars are now incredibly high, and the European New Car Assessment Programme just published its results for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Don’t worry, it didn’t score zero stars like the Fiat Punto did in 2017 and the 2018 Fiat Panda just did, but it lags behind a lot of other modern cars in several key…
Everyone is at different points in their lives and everyone has different priorities. Which makes for some very interesting car-buying questions. It might be time soon for your next car. What would it look like?
Southwest Airlines has apologized after a gate agent reportedly mocked the name of a passenger’s 5-year-old daughter a few weeks ago. The girl’s name is spelled “Abcde” but is pronounced “Ab-city.”
