Watch a McLaren P1 battle a BAC Mono at Silverstone

Two completely different ways to go seriously fast.<p>Both the BAC Mono and the McLaren P1 are perfectly capable of fending for themselves on a track. Knowing that both have superlative performance, can you guess which one wins? It's unclear whether the specs will help you. The BAC is a barely-there …


Watch a BMW M4 drift around 37 M siblings

"No BMWs were harmed in the making of this film."<p>There are initiation rituals that involve silly ceremonies or oaths. As far as BMW's M division is concerned, the only initiation the new M4 needs is to wreathe its predecessors in tire smoke. You could call it "hazing," sure, but probably not …


Shadow Boxing: 2015 BMW M3 vs 1987 FIA Group A BMW M3

The brute force of tomorrow versus the poise of yesterday!<p>Drop cap initial letter<b>IT</b> was idling in the paddock when I noticed the contrast. A 1987 FIA Group A BMW M3 race car doesn't so much idle as grumble to itself, a weird disparity given the visual bloodthirst of the car's bodywork. If a …

For 1 year, Toyota Japan gets a brand-new 30-year-old Land Cruiser

Don't call it a comeback...<p>Here's the tragedy of the Land Cruiser Series 70: it was never sold in the United States.

Watch a 964 RSR pretend to be a 3.8-liter dive bomber at Monza

It sounds like the Battle of Britain played out in a 911's rear end.<p>Actually, in calling the 964 RSR a 3.8, Porsche is fibbing a bit. The factory rounded up a smidge when they referenced the 3746 cc M64/04 flat-six engine, but it's not like many people noticed. Only 51 of the homologation specials …

Why a turbo base-model Porsche 911 doesn't make any sense

Displacement isn't the enemy.<p><i>We've heard the rumors today about a revamp of the base 911 in Porsche's lineup, with that car going turbo-only with a downsized motor (for fuel economy and emissions reasons) and getting a new chassis code—992. We asked Senior Editor Jason Cammisa, who has a finger on</i> …

Echoes of a long-dead Corvette plant in the powder keg of Ferguson

A homecoming of sorts in our long-term Stingray.<p><b>F</b>or two weeks, I'd watched from Michigan as Ferguson, Missouri erupted in violence. Cable news tickertape says it's a war zone. My Midwestern sensibilities tell me it's always okay to come home, so I aimed R&T's long-term C7 Corvette Stingray towards …


The 2015 Ford Mustang line is fully operational

Flat Rock Assembly starts cranking out pony cars just south of Detroit.<p>For 10 years, the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in its eponymous city south of Detroit has been cranking out Mustangs and Fusions. The plant opened in 1987, building the Mazda 626, Mazda 6, Mercury Cougar and Ford Probe—ancient …

Life after supercar, or why you should avoid the affordable exotic

Sure, buy that hot mess. Just don't get comfy.<p>"When I was a child," the saint wrote, "I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child."

Inside one of America's most interesting Ferrari collections

Photographer Clint Davis visits Ferrari maven Phil Bachman.<p>Photographer Clint Davis got a plum assignment: drive to Tennessee and visit with Ferrari collectors Phil and Martha Bachman.<p>The Bachmans' collection is interesting, as it's heavy on yellow (Phil's favorite hue) and, more significantly, is …


Watch an 800 hp home-brewed Juke-R tackle the 'Ring in the wet

Of course there's NOS. Of course.<p>Leave it to a Russian company Shpilli Villi Engineering to produce something even less sensible than the factory Juke-R. It has the heart of a Nissan GT-R uprated to a claimed 800 hp, with a 200 hp-shot of NOS to boot. It's, er, quick. See for yourself:<p><b>RELATED: A</b> …

The Aston Martin Lagonda completely uncovered thanks to Oman Air

This is what happens when your bespoke car is financed by a Middle Eastern airline.<p>The 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda uber-sedan is not for you, unless you happen to be filthy rich and living in the Middle East, so the fact that partner Oman Air blew the cover of the car is fairly immaterial.<p>What's the …
