The Range Rover SVR Sounds Beastly

I'm not going to describe the exhaust note of this exuberant machine, apart from saying that I have a feeling the same guys who engineered the sounds of the Jaguar F-Type had a hand in it. » 2/05/15 6:46pm 2/05/15 6:46pm

Who Doesn't Love a GT40? No One, That's Who.

Do you know where the 40 comes from in GT40? It's the tallest point of the car, 40 inches. There's a small caveat in that though: Although the GT40 is a street-legal racer, true racing versions of the car often had bumps in the roof above the driver's side for helmet space. » 12/16/14 8:00pm 12/16/14 8:00pm

Ferrari F40: Gearhead Posterchild

Sat down at my desk this morning and saw a Facebook post indicating that there was a Ferrari F40 parked a little over a block away at Classic Car Club Manhattan. I put my scarf back on so quick I almost got scarf burn. » 12/22/14 5:32pm 12/22/14 5:32pm

Who Does it Better: GMC Acadia or Subaru STi?

So, I was driving along today in my plain jane NA Impreza, and saw a fellow Subie on the road....a nice new STi to be exact. Sure, I love it and it grabbed my attention. But then, right behind it, was a GMC Acadia. Normally, I couldn't care less about that car, but then I noticed the headlights. » 11/20/14 12:58pm 11/20/14 12:58pm

Mutts Cutts Does NYC

If you grew up in 90s like I did, you probably spent your allowance on some exceedingly uncomfortable plastic inflatable furniture, wasted countless minutes AIM chatting with SmarterChild, and rocked out to Weezer's Blue Album, like I did. You probably also saw Dumb and Dumber. A few times. » 11/03/14 2:26pm 11/03/14 2:26pm

How I Found Valentino's Balboni In Wyoming

"Hey, there's two Lamborghini's parked outside the lobby," said my dad as he drank his morning coffee, with 20+ years in the car sales business under his belt. You see, his passion for car culture lies within MSRP and resale values rather than horsepower and torque figures, so when he directs my attention to a car on… » 8/06/14 10:01am 8/06/14 10:01am

E30 M3 On Backroads POV

I didn't realize how much I missed this buzzy little backroad beast. Ride along as I scare my sister on one of my favorite stretches of pavement. The CCC folks even left the sticky r-comps mounted, for grip! » 7/24/14 1:07pm 7/24/14 1:07pm

I Was Tricked Into Driving A Maserati Around Manhattan

When I finally officially graduated from college last summer, my parents were overjoyed. It only took six years, and multiple tense conversations about how I could be a semi-professional racing driver if they would have just put that tuition money towards Skip Barber school instead of "wasting" it on a liberal arts… » 7/11/14 2:54pm 7/11/14 2:54pm
