One-Off Super Snake Sells for $1.3M(May 24, 2013)what's so special about this car?!? did you not read the article? the only one EVER made..unmolested..all original. yeah Eleanor is cosmetic..this thing would beat the brakes off of Eleanor
Kia Quoris Coming to America(May 23, 2013)a 100% improvement over what the world knows as a Kia..but at the end of the day, it's still a Kia
Eleanor Sold for $1.1 Million(May 21, 2013)what's crazy is a completely original, only one in existence, 67 GT500 "Super Snake", we're talking 1 of 1..sold for 1.3 mil. Kinda sad knowing a fake GT500 sold for almost as much
Lexus LFA Owner Hates Speed Bumps(May 19, 2013)if you got the money to buy an overpriced car, you got the money to flush down the toilet and giving them a big "F you"
Lexus LFA Owner Hates Speed Bumps(May 19, 2013)I'll be damned if they are gonna tell me what I can and can't do with a car that I payed for. I'll sell that bitch to a scrap yard for 200 bucks and send them the video of it being crushed...
Motoring TV: Top Gear(May 15, 2013)top gear USA should follow the same format and get car guys who are funny and are very capable drivers. it's only saving grace is Tanner Foust. they barely do reviews anymore..although the challenges are fun, does get boring
Motoring TV: Top Gear(May 15, 2013)couldn't agree more..when they review a car, you listen! you actually expect them to be brutally honest while they push the car to the max!
Behind-the-Scenes of the Viper GTS-R(May 12, 2013)personally, I think they need to and will eventually drop the v-10. forced induction is taking over as we've seen as of late, and a twin turbo v8 could probably make this car a whole other beast..wishful thinking maybe
Cars and Coffee Oklahoma City(May 11, 2013)kinda not happy about not knowing about this..woulda drove the hour and a half to see these cars..and I hate coffee but woulda hovered with a mcmuffin all day!
Lambo Veneno Starts its Engine(May 10, 2013)gotta find someone to insure it first..them worry about the premium haha..and yeah most v10-12s have that "shrill" in it's exhaust note. small cylinders and it sounded like it idled at 3000 rpm...
Lambo Veneno Starts its Engine(May 10, 2013)the last image of its rear end is a beautiful sight..can't wait to see this thing actually opened up on the road!
Tim McGraw's SRT8 Can be Yours(May 07, 2013)I actually like the paint scheme..it'll turn heads. the only thing that kinda throws it off, IMO, is the matte hood..I'd paint it the aqua
McLaren P1 Selling Fast(May 03, 2013)I stand corrected..after some searching, I found out McLaren wants a list of cars you own or have owned and if it meets their criteria, you're on the list. I also found out some interesting facts about buying a Ferrari, let alone the LaFerrari
McLaren P1 Selling Fast(May 03, 2013)the LaFerrari is only sold to certain people on a list of their choosing. the McLaren on the other hand, is first come, first serve. so even if you had the money, unless you are on that list, you are only getting a LaFerrari second hand
McLaren P1 Selling Fast(May 03, 2013)LaFerrari was already sold out because they already had their list of prospective buyers years in advance. I'm sure the criteria was the same as the pre-sale for the Enzo. in other words...
More Embarrassment for Fisker(Apr 24, 2013)and they flourished. Fisker on the other hand..didnt take a bailout, they depended on taxpayers to make a car to cater to only the rich. if they were to make a car that is reliable and affordable to the masses, it'd be a different tune! to that...
More Embarrassment for Fisker(Apr 24, 2013)lets face it, without the auto bailout..America would have collapsed without a doubt. Ford didnt take the bailout, sold off all their assets and subsidiaries to just get them out of debt..a couple major, fantastic redesigns of core models...
DRT: 900hp Vette vs. 900hp Viper(Apr 23, 2013)of course the GT-r douches have to have their say..150 more hp and only 1/2 a length..get that hunk of $&!? outta here
Mazzanti Evantra Debuts in Monaco(Apr 20, 2013)this angle does make it look pretty mean..it's also a little awkward seeing a mid engine car with such a shorten rear end and elongated front end
SRT Vipers Drag at the Strip(Apr 19, 2013)running a new car with 11 miles on it with your foot on the floor is a little stupid. break her in properly and she'll last ya a lot longer..but hey, if you can buy one you can afford to drop 30k when you are putting in a new motor, right?
Expensive Failures: DeLorean DMC-12(Apr 19, 2013)ya gotta think, for the 80s, this car had the look. going with a lackluster v6 instead of it being force inducted or even a v8 though?! it'll get your attention and has it's cult status but it's just not practical
Honda Opens NSX Order Books(Apr 19, 2013)i like how they did a complete design from the ground up..instead of drawing some kind of inspiration from the previous generation. it's a sexy car but I don't see it competing against cars in its class..we'll see though
RM to Auction the Don Davis Collection (Apr 16, 2013)All time fav mustang..I'll take mine in red please! and to try to list the top 3 muscle of all time is a chore..you can't name 3 without realizing you forgot about one and gotta rethink your list
Expensive Failures: Cizeta V16T(Apr 15, 2013)it's funny that this was what the diablo was supposed to look like..and told the dude to buzz off..only to pick it up again 10 years later
Guinness Restores Bugatti’s Record(Apr 14, 2013)it's not a Bentley, or Roll Royce, hell a Chrysler 300 for that matter in terms of creature comforts. so I for one throw the term luxury with the Veyron, out the window.
Guinness Restores Bugatti’s Record(Apr 14, 2013)I don't even know what so "luxurious" about the Veyron anyway..because it has a leather dash..it doesn't have big comfortable seats, it's doesnt have wood grain panels from the Black Forest hills of Germany..so what exactly makes it luxury?...
Guinness Restores Bugatti’s Record(Apr 14, 2013)Bugatti and VW are showing what kind of sore loser they are. Getting beat by a car that is essential half of what the Veyron SS has (cylinders, turbos, WEIGHT, price) but performs better and more efficiently
Guinness Restores Bugatti’s Record(Apr 14, 2013)a limiter doesn't change the the engine?! what experts in what field did they talk to, VW engineers?!? I know there are Veyron's in the US and I know the venom resides here..get these two together and have a 2 mi race..we'll see who wins...
Ultimate Aero World’s Fastest (Again)(Apr 12, 2013)would be a good race...the Veyron taking the early lead and about the 1 mile marker..it's getting walked on by the Aero and Venom..come about the time they have to start braking, venom takes it by 2 lengths over the SSC and 4 over the Veyron...
Two Ferrari F50s Play Tug of War(Apr 10, 2013)I'm all for driving these cars til the wheels fall off....ON THE ROAD! taking these ultra-rare, ultra-desirable masterpieces on gravel and dirt..makes me a little queasy..not gonna lie
Bugatti to Reveal Faster Veyron?(Apr 09, 2013)I know the difference between AWD and 4wd..and not many vehicles have the power compensation as you described..don't know about the Veyron and if it has it..usually AWD vehicles have a 60ish rear and 40 front power distribution
Bugatti to Reveal Faster Veyron?(Apr 09, 2013)if they could turn off the AWD say around 3rd gear..where all 1600 hp are going to 2 wheels instead of 4..maybe it can get there..AWD is deadly at the line but after that it's useless
Bugatti to Reveal Faster Veyron?(Apr 09, 2013)what's funny is the Ultimate Aero if given 5 miles could beat the the SS. The venom can beat both of them in 2 miles and a bad shift. 500 lbs is going to add 30 mph..10 at best...
Bugatti to Reveal Faster Veyron?(Apr 09, 2013)they can't sell them in Europe with the law stating they have to have the limiter..so Middle East and America get your wallets out
Bugatti to Reveal Faster Veyron?(Apr 09, 2013)what's funny is they are probably gonna build ONLY 10 of them and make sure the limiter is off when they sell them..for an everyday low price of 4 mil..I'm interested to know what tires they plan on using since "they can't handle all that speed"
Bugatti to Reveal Faster Veyron?(Apr 09, 2013)yeah I'd like to see them get that fat beetle up to 290..it struggles to get to 270..come VW open up your track..don't be scared
Veyron SS Stripped of its 'Fastest' Title(Apr 08, 2013)Haters gonna hate! Bugatti fanboys are gettin butthurt over this, and it makes me smile! I'd say use the same 2 miles you used Hennessey..tell your boy not to screw up the 3-4 shift and your well into 270..it was a loss of 5-6 mph when that happened
Veyron SS Stripped of its 'Fastest' Title(Apr 07, 2013)a production car can be defined in a few different ways..but it's clear that it must be road legal and for public availability. I'm sure the venom falls under that, donor car or not
Veyron SS Stripped of its 'Fastest' Title(Apr 07, 2013)I consider the venom a production car..yes they used a base donor car..but it had to be completely re-engineered to is current state. less than 10% of the donor is re-used. everything else is made by the hands at Hennessey...
Venom GT Hits 265.7 MPH(Apr 03, 2013)the grand vitesse is the "luxurious" SS..and I wouldn't exactly call it "luxurious"..
Venom GT Hits 265.7 MPH(Apr 03, 2013)if he didnt screw up the 3-4 shift..270 easy..I don't hate the Veyron..I respect what it is and has done..I hate the fanboys that drool over it..and think it's the be all end all. and actually the SS is a stripped down version....
SRT Planning Z/28 Fighter(Apr 03, 2013)I imagine that 392 is gonna be supercharged..they gotta find a way to she'd weight because that is the only drawback with the Chally..maybe a nice wide body kit.....
C8 Corvette Coming Early(Apr 01, 2013)man I got excited when I read the headline! I love the stingray and the vette in general but could always be happy with a new model..then started reading the article and it clicked at "we messed up" what executive says that haha
Weber F1 World's Fastest 4WD?(Mar 29, 2013)that mid-body region throws off the flow of the car for me..can't wait to see it perform, because those are some big claims
Shelby Raptor Shakes Manhattan(Mar 28, 2013)I'll pass on the Shelby Raptor..this has nothing on the Hennessey VelociRaptor..and decimates with the VelociRaptor 800
2014 Camaro Revealed Early(Mar 27, 2013)I see the wrap around the tail..I have a feeling it's gonna be very similar to the stingray. they are headed into the 2nd-3rd generation styling by making the grill smaller
Cadillac Debuts New CTS in NYC(Mar 27, 2013)the rear is a lil Mercedes-ish..I like it..the front gets high marks for me..definitely going the right direction. a great alternative to the MB C class and BMW 5 series
SRT Viper TA Seeks Redemption(Mar 20, 2013)could cut that 8 hundredths..I know, let's tweak a 4 yr old ZR1 so it could beat the TA by 9 hundredths. sounds good to me! they should have just waited and released the ACR..would make more sense to me
SRT Viper TA Seeks Redemption(Mar 20, 2013)stop the presses! 8 hundredths of second! feel proud! I hope you're going to DisneyWorld now! I love the viper, always have..but if you want to beat someone, do it big! I'm sure the ZR1, if throttled a little harder or earlier out of a turn...
SRT Hits the Track with Viper TA(Mar 19, 2013)the final ACR will feature all this with more power IMO. I honestly think with what they changed, which it added weight, but increased aero and grip with the corsas..it ,MIGHT, beat the ZR1
SRT Hits the Track with Viper TA(Mar 19, 2013)no a base viper is equal to a base vette..the ZR1 is a track focused car..so in turn the ACR variant of a viper would be equal to the ZR1..now with that being said I also believe this is a partially rushed ACR...
More Than 1,000 Orders for LaFerrari(Mar 10, 2013)when they make special cars like this..it's 500 cars for a select 500 hundred we've chosen..if some of those 500 hundred don't buy, then we continue on down the line
More Than 1,000 Orders for LaFerrari(Mar 10, 2013)well that all depends, with the Enzo..they gave first priority to people who had or owns a F40 and F50..so with this one, owning an Enzo at some point may be a requirement. Ferrari doesn't just make 500 for the general public..
Top 5 Geneva Supercars(Mar 07, 2013)leave the old, classic cars for museums..make your current line-up practical and something someone will drive more than once a year. I hate knowing this will sit in a garage and started once in a while to keep the fluids from being static
Top 5 Geneva Supercars(Mar 07, 2013)this definitely has a unique look..can't say it's the best though. You'll never see it on the road, much less ever tested. I love lambo and the work they do..but building 3 cars that will be used as showpieces, doesn't make sense to me
LaFerrari Hits YouTube & Track(Mar 07, 2013)ok I shouldn't have watched that at work...I need to go home :p now that it has shown it has DRS and KERS..a battle between the P1 and this needs to happen. These two are the pinnacle of automobiles as of right now
Pagani Responds to Top Gear Controversy(Feb 28, 2013)if it's street legal, so be it. I like controversy but I don't like being a sheep and following the herd. look at defense attorneys, they may not think their client is innocent..
Pagani Responds to Top Gear Controversy(Feb 28, 2013)if tread depth is shallow..it doesn't channel water from the tire surface effectively..this creating a slick surface, therefore, hydroplaning.
Pagani Responds to Top Gear Controversy(Feb 28, 2013)basically all I see is a soft compound tire with grooves..so they are "wet" slicks..so that makes them street legal? I guarantee any amount of water on the road and you'd hydro right into a tree...
5 Ford Supercar Concepts(Feb 27, 2013)Carroll chose the Aurora based v8, not Alero, because of it's potential. Ford and GM had no say in the Series 1.
5 Ford Supercar Concepts(Feb 27, 2013)@David..you got it part right..this is a collab with Ford. now to where you are wrong, the Series 1 wasn't a "GM thing". The Series 1 was built in-house at Shelby American..
Top 5 All-American Supercars(Feb 18, 2013)I'm gonna have to say it has made the jump from sports to supercar with the C6..it really all depends on what the "criteria" is, that defines a supercar. and for everyone, it's different
GT-R Track Edition Debuts in Chicago(Feb 08, 2013)is it me..or should they have taken out the cup holders too! way to half ass it and literally JUST take out the seats. it would look a lot better if it was all just flat panels..although that would probably add another 10k haha
Listen to the Ferrari F150 Roar on the Track(Feb 05, 2013)those mclaren boys DON'T need to take notes..the P1 already sounds better..don't get me wrong, this sounds good, but 5 cars come to mind that sound better..just my opinion
5 SUVs We Want But Can't Afford(Feb 01, 2013)4th ugliest vehicle on the planet..behind a pinto, gremlin, and a juke..even if I had the money if call Mercedes and tell where to stick this hunk of s***! matter of fact..I'll be back......
F150 Revealed at Private Preview(Jan 31, 2013)when the Enzo came out..the requirements were you had to be on the Ferrari registry, and own or have owned an F40 or F50
F150 Revealed at Private Preview(Jan 31, 2013)it's to my understanding that special edition cars, like the F40, F50, and Enzo are offered first to the owners of those cars..so basically there is already a select 499 customers
