    New from Howe & Howe is an off-road vehicle that you will almost certainly never get to drive, unless you’re either very lucky or very wealthy (or both). It’s the Ripsaw EV2, billed by its makers as a “luxury super tank” and the “fastest dual tracked vehicle ever developed.” The Ripsaw EV2 doesn’t have the big front-mounted cannon […]

    1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Roadster Hitting Auction Block

    One of the most coveted automobiles of the past quarter century (or more) would have to be the 1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Roadster, in part because there were only a total of six of them made. Now, the very first one is set to hit the auction block later this month, where it’s expected to […]

    When people talk about “off-road capabilities,” they’re generally referring to hills, sand, or otherwise rough terrain, and not under any circumstances water.

    JetCart: Jet-Powered Go-Kart by Colin Furze (Video)

    A guy named Colin Furze apparently had some time to kill, so instead of doing laundry or tidying up the kitchen he designed a fire-breathing, jet-powered go-kart called the JetCart (or, alternatively, the JetKart). That added power gives the vehicle enough speed to keep up with regular cars, but it’s really its visual component that’s the most impressive. The […]

    The Supercars of ‘Spectre’ Featured in Behind-the-Scenes Video

    Cars are a big part of the James Bond mythology, so it’s no surprise that there will be a strong automotive component to the upcoming next installment of the Bond saga, Spectre. It’s still an unexpected treat, though, that the supercars of Spectre have gotten their own behind-the-scenes video showcase (titled the Supercars of SPECTRE) in advance of the film’s November […]

    If you played any Gran Turismo 6 at all, it’s possible you’ve been acquainted with the sexy Vision Gran Turismo concept car, and you could be forgiven for thinking it would remain 1’s and 0’s forever.

    $1.5 Million Ferrari LaFerrari Totaled in China

    Whenever I read about someone spending an exorbitant sum on a car, the first image my mind shows me is it ending up totaled on a freeway somewhere.
