First Drive

Living up to its name | 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast First Drive

What's in a name? In the case of the Ferrari 812 Superfast, a numerical reference to its 800-(metric) horsepower, 12-cylinder engine and a not-so-subtle hint at its capability for extreme rates of travel. Only Ferrari, notorious for joyously naming its flagship "LaFerrari," could get away with the moniker. But once you get past the super-obvious nomenclature, it becomes hard to argue with this on-the-nose model name. If you're lucky enough to have sampled the standard F12 and one of the 799…
Superfast? Agreed.

Watch motorcyclist kick moving car, trigger chain-reaction crash

A road-rage confrontation on a freeway north of Los Angeles caused a chain-reaction crash that put an occupant of a third vehicle in the hospital - and it was all triggered when a motorcycle rider kicked the side of a moving car. The crash occurred around 6 a.m. Wednesday in Santa Clarita. A passenger in a trailing car started shooting video when he said a gray sedan cut off the motorcyclist. "Words went back and forth," he told NBC4. That's when the motorcyclist kicks the side of the gray…
California road rage at its finest.

RWD Subaru? 'Baby Driver's' stunt genius tells us how he drove those scenes

If you're like us, you're probably pretty excited about the upcoming Edgar Wright film, Baby Driver. It's a heist movie centered around car chases, all with some musical accompaniment. What really stood out to us in the trailer was that the driving looked like what we've seen in stunt videos, rather than the absurd action of the Fast and Furious franchise. And now, having spoken with one of the stunt drivers for the film, Jeremy Fry, it sounds like the driving is just what we expected, and…
We chatted with the movie's behind-the-scenes star, Jeremy Fry.

Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE is shockingly quick at the Nurburgring

We can't tell you about how it drives yet (that's coming soon), but we can tell you the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE can lap the Nürburgring in supercar territory. The number in question here is 7:16.04, and if you start comparing that with other published lap times from manufacturer's tests, you'll notice that this puts the brash Camaro in fast company. Let's start first with its close family relation, the regular ZL1. "Regular" is a bit of a misnomer, because it packs a supercharged…
Lots of aero, barely street-legal tires, and high-tech suspension do wonders.

Audi A8's active suspension will even protect you in a crash

Audi has revealed yet another system of the upcoming Audi A8 that uses the car's 48-volt electrical system. In addition to a fancy stop-start function, the A8 will have a suspension that can be actuated by electric motors. At each corner of the car is a separate motor connected to an arm that can press down or pull up on the suspension. These motors are controlled by a computer that monitors the road with a camera to determine how the motors should react to improve ride quality and handling.…
It also helps ride and handling.
