BMW's Sports Car From the Future Gets a Serious Power Boost

We like the BMW i8 for its styling, its efficiency, and its fresh approach to what a sports car can be. If there's one area where it might be perceived as falling short of the competition, it is in overall output. With 357 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque, it is quick, turning in a 3.8-second …

2000-hp Nissan GT-R rips AWD wheelies, 7.7-sec quarter

The most monstrous Godzilla.<p>AMS Performance calls this car the Alpha Omega GT-R, and for good reason. It's built to do exactly one thing: be the fastest of its ilk down the quarter mile.

How to lower the odds of getting ticketed during a traffic stop

We all get pulled over. What you do next may save you from getting a summons.<p>Ever since I was in high school, police officers of various jurisdictions have made a hobby of pulling me over. "Do you know why I pulled you over?" Of course I do. But since I became an attorney 23 years ago, I've …

Get under the skin of the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S

This is gonna be good.<p>The GT is not a direct replacement for the SLS AMG, as it's positioned at a lower price. But it should be a better car in almost every measurable way, as it's based on the same basic architecture, uses a similar suspension design, and benefits from five full years of SLS …

How Fast Would You Need to Go to Beat a Speed Camera?

Speed cameras. If you’re over the posted limit when the shutter clicks, you’re basically toast. How do you get around that problem? You can slow down, obviously, or you can travel fast enough that your license plate isn’t readable by the camera. How fast <i>is</i> that, exactly? Good question—and one that …

Aston Martin Vanquish Carbon Edition is back in black [w/video]

Earlier this year, I spent the weekend with an Aston Martin Vanquish Volante in a particularly interesting shade of green – the same car you see photographed here, for our First Drive. When it was dropped off, I remember just staring at it, taking in all of its lines, the curves, its pronounced …

Audi R8 LMX illuminates the City of Light with lasers

Behold the coolest yet most terrifying crash test video ever

Whatever you may have to say about US foreign policy, the bottom line is that there are American embassies and consulates in places around the world that aren't necessarily friendly towards America.

Nissan Debuts Sweet Pulsar Hatchback, NISMO Version in Paris

In the U.S., Nissan’s small-car lineup is like watching late-night skin flicks on Cinemax—you’re technically getting what you want, but a lot is left to be desired.

McLaren rolls out more accessible 625C in Asia

When McLaren first introduced the 650S, the initial idea was to keep the 12C it effectively replaced around as a more accessible option – particularly in certain Asian markets where buying a new car, much less an exotic supercar, is an even costlier endeavor than it is in other markets.
