Car Pr0n: Mercedes-McLaren SLR 722

The following probably makes me weirder than you, but it also explains a lot: I’m really puzzled as to how the McMerc SLR will be remembered. It’s an insanely potent beast, essentially exactly as quick as the already historic and lust-worthy Porsche Carerra GT. In fact, according to the Stig, the McMerc is actually quicker [...]

Next Fast And Furious 4 Trailer: Go Ahead And Watch, We Did

We’re not sure what draws us to these movies. I personally spent each of the last three flicks trying not to scream at the screen. I can deal with horrible acting. Hell, I plan on being buried with my copy of Army of Darkness, but suspension of disbelief can only go so far. Floorboards don’t [...]

Splinter Vision: Wooden Supercar Baffles the Mind

Before we can even say, “Where to even start?” let’s start with the suspension. It’s all wood! In front it has unequal length wooden control arms and wooden transverse leaf springs — just like a Corvette. That rear features wooden trailing arms and another set of tree-derived transverse leaf springs. Now, you might be thinking [...]

Video Sneak Peak: Jaguar XF-R

Pop quiz. What packs a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 with 500 horsepower and has its sights set on contenders like the BMW M5 and Audi’s RS6? If you read the headline and said the 2009 Jaguar XF-R, you’re a clever one. The newest lunging feline with some serious teeth was spotted trying to evade the pesky [...]

Video: A Tesla Owner And His Roadster

This is pretty neat. For a long time now there have been doubts (to put it mildly) about the viability of the Tesla Roadster. Even Atuoblog Green had some fits about the truthiness of Telsa’s claimin’ that they were selling actual cars to actual people. And for a few months there it did indeed seem [...]

Video: 1984 Volkswagen Rabbit GTI Commercial

My first car was a first year 1983 vintage version. I’d just moved from the UK where the Golf GTI hot hatch was the ultimate hooligan machine with 115hp in a lightweight nimble package and the ability to embarrass Porsche 911s on country roads. Right then the hot hatch wars in Europe were heating up [...]

Rolling Vid Of The 2009 Ford Fiesta

Us Fiends think Ford’s next generation Fiesta’s 67 mpg is a move in the right direction for auto makers everywhere, proving that great fuel economy doesn’t necessarily have to equate some sort of cumbersome hybrid technology.

MINI Clubman S Vs Go-Kart: Title Match

The term “go-kart like handling” is about as aggravating as an Ohioan in the fast lane. Tossed about by marketing fools and automakers alike, it was about time someone put a stop to the dumbassery. The guys over at webridestv.com finally decided to call MINI’s bluff on their claim that the pint size bruiser is [...]

Video: Kartvader Hits The Street: Lunatic On Street Shifter Kart Action

This is probably the video of the year for me. Canadians as a whole are nutty—and I mean that in the fondest way—they’re not afraid to have fun and the rules be damned. Take the national sport of beer driving that a relative of mine was recently introduced to. Ingredients: 1 x 12 pack of [...]
