This Ford Mustang Is a Lamborghini Gallardo This Ford Mustang Is a Lamborghini Gallardo

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.

What Do You Want to Know About the Lamborghini Urus? What Do You Want to Know About the Lamborghini Urus?

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?

I Am a Mustang Woman Now I Am a Mustang Woman Now

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.

What Are Some Red Flags to Look Out for When Buying a Car? What Are Some Red Flags to Look Out for When Buying a Car?

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?

The 2019 Porsche Macan Handles Better Than a Crossover Has Any Right To The 2019 Porsche Macan Handles Better Than a Crossover Has Any Right To

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…

The V12 BMW 850i Is for Nostalgia-Addled Masochists The V12 BMW 850i Is for Nostalgia-Addled Masochists

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…

This Is the Stuff Movies Constantly Get Wrong About Cars This Is the Stuff Movies Constantly Get Wrong About Cars

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…

It Turns Out the BMW M2 Competition Is Just Brilliant To Drive It Turns Out the BMW M2 Competition Is Just Brilliant To Drive

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.

Comment of the Day: Product Planning Edition Comment of the Day: Product Planning Edition

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!

Here's the Midengine Corvette Tooling Around Southwest Florida

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.

What a Lifelong Z Mechanic Thinks of Nissan Today What a Lifelong Z Mechanic Thinks of Nissan Today

“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 Electric Onslaught Will Include 15 Million Electric Cars Volkswagen's Electric Onslaught Will Include 15 Million Electric Cars

Transformers: The Last Knight Contains an Injustice That Cannot Stand Transformers: The Last Knight Contains an Injustice That Cannot Stand

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.

That Auction Record-Breaking 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Is Worth More Than Its Weight in Gold That Auction Record-Breaking 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Is Worth More Than Its Weight in Gold

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.

Nearly a Fifth of All Motorcycle Riders Are Now Women Nearly a Fifth of All Motorcycle Riders Are Now Women

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.

What About Cars Do Movies Get Wrong?  What About Cars Do Movies Get Wrong? 

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.

Aston Martin Is Fitting Classic Cars With Electric Powertrains Aston Martin Is Fitting Classic Cars With Electric Powertrains

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.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Bombed Parts of Europe's Car Safety Performance Test The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Bombed Parts of Europe's Car Safety Performance Test

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…

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.”
