Emilia Palmer, an eight-year-old from Kimbolton, Herefordshire in England’s West Midlands, suffers from a rare lung illness, requiring her to constantly be on oxygen. She made a request through Rays of Sunshine, which is like the Make-A-Wish Foundation, to get a ride in a pink Lamborghini, driven by everyone’s favorite Hamster, Richard Hammond. And last Sunday, she got to [...]
Having the time and money to see a project through to completion is one thing, but it’s the vision behind it – whether it be set in stone from the very outset, or evolved during the build – that more than often sets good cars apart from truly great cars. Krister ‘Sibbe’ Svahn’s 1980 Porsche 930 [...]
A new auction world record for a McLaren F1 was set last night when chassis #66 sold for $8.47 million at Gooding & Co’s auction at Pebble Beach. There’s been an inexorable rise in the price of classic cars in recent years as rich men realize that certain classic cars not only have huge appeal, [...]
When we showed up at Pebble Beach this morning (really, really early this morning), we had a pretty good idea of classics and concepts that we wanted to cover. To be completely honest, the Laraki Motors Epitome Concept car wasn’t on our cheat sheet. We hadn’t heard of the wildly scooped and scalloped show car, and, until [...]
Galpin Auto Sports has unveiled their new GTR1 prototype at Pebble Beach. Described as “a vision of what the Ford GT may have looked and performed like today,” the GTR1 is based on the aforementioned model and features a handcrafted aluminum body that was created by Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters of Fountain Valley, California. While the [...]
The drop-top version of Aston Martin’s new carbon fibre Vanquish – the Aston Martin Vanquish Volante – has had its world premiere at Pebble Beach. 2013 is a big year for Aston Martin – its 100th Anniversary – so Aston Martin at Pebble Beach this year is more than worth a look as Aston seeks to make [...]
The 2014 BMW M5 has hit the web a little early thanks to an employee who accidentally uploaded the car’s configurator ahead of schedule. Looking instantly recognizable, the updated model has a new grille with larger vertical slats that echo those on the M6. There doesn’t appear to be any other major changes but the headlights could receive some [...]
The Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR was built as a race car for the FIA GT Championship series in 1997. To meet homologation requirements, a total of 26 road-going vehicles were built in the following years. The rarest were the open-roof roadster models, of which only six were made.
If it wasn’t obscene enough to go off-roading in a Rolls-Royce Phantom or rally driving a Ferrari Enzo, the Tax The Rich crew has gotten its hands on a pair of ultra-rare Ferrari F50 models to perform a tug-of-war battle, which we usually see reserved for pickup trucks. Only 349 F50s were ever built, but this video pits two of them against each [...]
When you fly your two Bugatti Veyrons to London is when you know you are rich. It is very common for the rich of the Arab countries to visit London in the summer. Unlike most people going on vacations, they tend to bring their cars no matter what it takes.
What It Is: Audi’s upcoming, race-bred hypercar, based directly on the R18 e-tron Quattro Le Mans racer that took victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans last year. Audi intends to use the new car, known internally as Scorpion, as a rolling showcase of the technologies the brand has developed throughout its racing endeavors. A design has [...]
The Audi R8 is such a striking car. I like it, you like it, Tony Stark likes it again, and now we have an awesome wallpaper of it too. This photo comes from the good folks over at FPI Studios, who have a ton of great car photos on their site.
This just happened thanks to Hennessey’s drag strip. Yes, it was as fun as you think it was. If you think the new Viper is tame, you’re so wrong.
The Pagani Zonda used to rule the world when it came to outrageously alien rearview mirrors on insectile carbon fiber antennae but it’s suddenly got company. The LaFerrari’s wing mirrors extend into the atmosphere on footlong stalks and they look stunning. Are you a Zonda man?
In the last 24 hours we entered a new golden age of unreal supercars, ushered in by the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, and Ferrari LaFerrari. They are all their own unique interpretations of the ethos of each brand. But they all have one thing in common: They’re all hybrids.
Are your friends giving you crap for liking LaFerrari, the ridiculously-named hybrid hypercar from Modena? Show them the gif below and it should put their mind right. Yes, while Ferrari’s marketing department yammers on about F1 tech this and hybrid that and saying nonsense about aerodynamics being the only justification for any styling trait in the entire car world or whatever, [...]
Here at C/D, we use words to put you behind the wheel of the cars we cover and review, but there’s often a compelling story to be told through simply looking at a car. So we came up with a way to bring you closer to the coolest and newest rides: Full 360-degree views, which we’ll be posting [...]
