Gumball 3000 Kicks Off in NYC

The infamous cross-country hoonfest known as the Gumball 3000 begins today from the glorious City of New York. Attracting a host of C+/B List celebrities and some of the most outlandish paintjobs you’ll ever see on supercars, the Gumball is basically the ultimate celebration of four-wheeled flamboyance and stage for shenanigans unleashed on America’s unsuspecting…

740 Horses Prance Out of Maranello

Ferrari has just announced its latest contribution to the world’s selection of supercars; the “F12 Berlinetta”. Since Ferrari saves the “F-followed-by-two-digits” nomenclature for its most extreme machines, I knew this was going to be big.  Berlinetta, of course, stands for “two seats, enclosed cockpit (hardtop)”. And as it’s possibly the prettiest pony to prance out…

Tesla Test Drive: 2011 Roadster Sport 2.5 in Boston

Thanks to the generosity of Tesla Motors, I’m excited to say we had a chance to shakedown the new Roadster Sport 2.5 this week.

Car Chase Of The Day: “Bad Boys II”

Since the Mrs. Dwayne Wade lawsuit situation Gabrielle Union is a hot search item.  So I thought throwing up the Bad Boys II car chase was timely… even though the movie came out seven years ago. Anyway it’s a sick chase with Will Smith going nuts in a Ferrari 550 Maranello and dropping great lines…

Car Chase Of The Day: “Goldeneye”

During another hard procrastination session that I’m currently in the midst of, I lamented that this website hasn’t made a “Top Ten Movie Car Chases” list yet.  You know, like a “Mr. Skin” for car fans. [If you don’t know what that is, send your kids out of the room (seriously) and take a look.]…
