Ford's Freakiest F-350 Has Been Sold in Chicago. And Now That We Can Track It, We Should Kill It... With Fire!

1994 Ford Power Stroke Concept Truck

As you might have read in an article a colleague of mine wrote a while ago, the 1994 Dodge Ram displayed at that year’s Detroit Auto Show is blamed/praised as the pickup design that set the tone for every rig that’s followed. And for that, we all—yes, ALL—should kiss the ring of anyone involved in the creation—and implementation—of that truck.

On: Thu, Dec 19, 2013 at 2:43PM | By: Karen Cook


If you are hoping for a car under your tree and wake up Christmas morning to find that Santa didn’t bring you one, don’t despair. You can build one for yourself out of all the Legos you may have gotten instead.


Next Chevy Volt Could Get Up to 50 Miles All-Electric Driving

On: Fri, Aug 16, 2013 at 10:15AM | By: Chris Weiss


The 2014 Chevy Volt will feature a few very minor option updates, but outside of that, the only thing new on it is the price. The next generation of the Volt promises a much more thorough series of upgrades, including much improved all-electric range, according to comments from GM CEO Dan Akerson. It still won't be a rightful "electric vehicle," the way GM insists on describing it, but it will be one step closer.

LeFerrari

The "LeFerrari" is one of the worst names ever conceived for a vehicle. And that's a damn shame because the car promises to be one of the most awesome exotics of our generation. Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso cashed in on that promise in a short video clip that takes us in and out of the LeFerrari. 


 

A Look at the Italdesign Parcour Off-Road Supercar Concept

On: Thu, Jul 18, 2013 at 5:15PM | By: Chris Weiss


Every year, famous Italian design houses, like Pininfarina and Bertone, scramble to build sporty concept cars for auto shows and events throughout the year. They all seem to rally particularly strong for the annual Geneva Motor Show. This year, one of those design houses, Italdesign, went beyond the obvious sports coupes and roadsters, designing something truly unique—an off-road supercar. The aptly named Parcour concept, envisioned as both a coupe and roadster, brings luscious, red curves to the off-road segment, or is that brute utility to the supercar segment? Italdesign vice chairman Fabrizio Giugiaro clues us in in a new video.

Volvo has been working to make itself an automotive technological leader. Over the past few months and years, it's demonstrated or discussed upcoming technologies like car-to-car communications, the SARTRE (Safe Road Trains for the Environment), and self-charging EV highways.

The Porsche 918 Spyder, one of the first of a number of upcoming green supercars, is being readied for launch later this year. During the development process, Porsche managed to string a one-minute clip of video together showcasing hot weather testing in Valley of Fire, just outside Las Vegas, Nevada. Stuttgart shows what has come of nearly one million miles of testing.


McLaren P1 claws its way around the Arctic Circle (Video)

On: Fri, May 3, 2013 at 9:41AM | By: Chris Weiss


The McLaren P1 is one of those supercars that is just fun to look at, especially when it's in action. Unfortunately, McLaren didn't see fit to bring it to the New York Auto Show for us American folks to see in person. So we'll just have to be content watching it carve its signature into the snow and ice of northern Europe.


Witness a World Record With New Bugatti Video

On: Thu, May 2, 2013 at 5:10PM | By: Chris Weiss


Prior to introducing its latest special edition, Bugatti put the "world record" into the World Record Car Edition by blazing into the books with a 254-mph run recorded by TÜV, the independent German organization for Technical Inspection and Certification. The record was for the fastest convertible in the world, and Bugatti got it done in the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. This week, Bugatti released the video evidence of the world record run. Reading about the world record was interesting, but watching it unfold before your eyes is much better. 


First Electric Off-Roader Racing in Baja

On: Wed, May 1, 2013 at 5:23PM | By: Chris Weiss


The National Off Road Racing Association (we'll call 'em NORRA from now on) announced last week that for the first time ever an all-electric off-road vehicle would race in its Mexican 1000 hot rod race, which is underway now. The rally, which is open to vintage and alternatively fueled vehicles, provides an interesting test bed for EVs, which suffer from range issues and performance problems in extreme weather - say 1,200 miles of hot, mouth-cottoningly dry desert in Baja. The SR1 EV1 truly has its work cut out for it.
