    Official: Mitsuoka manages to make Orochi even weirder with Evangelion edition
    1416415200

    Sports cars don't come more bizarre than the ungainly Mitsuoka Orochi. We thought we were rid of the puckered-face, Toyota-powered Japanese oddity when Mitsuoka revealed the Final Edition earlier this year, but it seems the Orochi has a little more left to give of its awkwardness, as you can see ...

    Official: Pagani launches in China with Huayra Dinastia edition
    1415883540

    The Zonda may have put Pagani on the map, but it was only sold in certain markets. The US, for example, wasn't one of them, but with the introduction of the Huayra, the Modenese supercar manufacturer is going global. The Chinese market is a vital element of that strategy, prompting Pagani to set ...

    Video: Can the Dutch build a decent supercar? Watch this video to find out
    1415663880

    It took a little while before the Vencer Sarthe went from early computer models to its real-life debut last year. But the company didn't stop there, reworking the design even further before the first units were actually completed. With the Dutch supercar finally actually in production, it's time ...

    Video: Watch Nissan's brand-new Datsun Go crash its way to zero stars
    1415641560

    There has been a steady march of progress in automotive safety over the years, evolving from the initial introduction of seat belts and padded dash surfaces to airbags and anti-lock brakes, and, more recently, to some of today's vehicles that actively try to avoid a crash. Unfortunately, knowing ...

    Video: Meet Mr. Donkervoort and his fabulous flying machines
    1415491440

    Joop Donkervoort has at least two things going for him. First, the man has one of the most fun names to say that we can imagine. Second, he is responsible for taking Colin Chapman's Lotus Seven and continuing to push the idea toward ever-higher stratums of performance with vehicles like the D8 ...

    SEMA: 2015 Panoz Esperante Spyder GT is a roadgoing $200k catamaran
    1415231940

    Not all the cars at the 2014 SEMA Show are covered in wild paint jobs, fitted with wheels the size of moons and featuring obscene amounts of horsepower. Some, like the Panoz Esperante Spyder GT 25th Anniversary Edition, just look like very good sporty cars. This is the first time we've seen the ...

    Video: Jet-powered Peel Trident is absurdly awesome, still slow
    1415123940

    With all of four horsepower from a 49cc engine, the Peel Trident was never going to be a fast car, even if it was sportier than the company's preceding P50. But one microcar enthusiast has apparently set out to fix this shortcoming by building a jet-powered version of the mid-60s microcar with ...

    Report: Three Wheeler now Morgan's best seller, electric version under study
    1415025000

    Three years ago, Morgan reintroduced the Three Wheeler after a hiatus of almost six decades. While the family-owned British automaker initially planned to only make 400 or 500 of the trike roadsters, it quickly emerged as its most popular model. These days Morgan is making 500 or so Three ...

    Official: Radical launches new 440-hp SR8 RSX track car
    1415022420

    Radical has made a name for itself building Le Mans Prototype-style sports cars you can actually buy and, in theory at least, drive on the road, but the resulting cars are so extreme that we doubt many of their owners actually do. Nominally street-legal (in some places) though they may be, these ...

    Report: Lister hypercar to tackle Ferrari, Pagani with all twelve cylinders firing
    1414947660

    Does the world need another thousand-horsepower, twelve-cylinder, seven-figure hypercar? Probably not. At least not with the likes of the Pagani Huayra and LaFerrari already out on the scene. But we're not going to complain if another storied European marque wants to get in on the action. That ...

    Video: Perfectly restored Tucker 48 gets 15 more minutes of fame
    1414702680

    There's something about the sheer audacity of the Tucker 48, sometimes also called the Torpedo, that makes this quirky American sedan so intriguing even 60-plus years after its introduction. Preston Tucker was only ever to complete 51 of them, and several of the remaining units were sold at ...

    Official: Detroit Electric shows new fastback style for SP:01
    1414593120

    There's been a proud history of basing electric sports cars off of the Lotus Elise. Its lightweight architecture has formed the basis for the original Tesla Roadster, the PG Elektrus, the Rinspeed sQuba concept, the Zytek Elise prototype and the Dodge Circuit EV show car. But those projects have ...

    Official: Trion Nemesis to unleash 2,000 American horsepower in 2016
    1414103340

    If it seems to you that everyone and their cousin wants to get into the hypercar game, you're right. We see new supercar startups popping up all the time. Some make it to production and some don't, and while it may be too soon to render verdict on this latest project, we hope it's one that comes ...

    Video: DeLorean DMC-12 illustrates how a good idea goes bad with Xcar
    1413849420

    When John Z. DeLorean set out to build a car, he had good intentions – it'd be small, efficient, sporty, affordable and safe, complete with a rust-free, stainless-steel body. The outcome, though, was a lamentable mess, a coupe whose prestige rests more with its gullwing doors and its ...

    Official: Ariel Atom gets even more insane with 3S model [w/video]
    1413212460

    As far as performance machines go, they don't come much more focused than the Ariel Atom. And they keep getting more extreme in their performance capabilities, leading up to the latest version you see here. Called the Atom 3S, it's based on the latest third-generation track toy, but comes ...

    U-Turn: What you missed on 10.9.14
    1412897460

    Which $10,000 '80s coupe would you choose? In the end, there can be only one. And, while we've got another six days left in the balloting, one of these two vehicles is leading in the early running by about two to one. You can probably guess which it is. And that means, if you've got an opinion, ...

    Opinion: This Or That: 1980 Oldsmobile 442 vs. 1989 BMW 635CSi [w/poll]
    Which $10,000 Coupe From The '80s Would You Choose? 1412873100

    The last time I roped a coworker into an automotive debate, I lost. Resoundingly, I might add. Still, 2,385 voters chose to cast their lots for the Fiat 500 Abarth, as opposed to 5,273 choosing the Ford Fiesta ST, and so I can rest easy in the knowledge that at least 30 percent of you, dear ...

    Review: 2014 Pagani Huayra
    A Cool $1.84 Million -€“ Therapy Not Included 1411747020

    As I pilot the Pagani Huayra down a busy Los Angeles freeway, I can't help but grow increasingly concerned about my psychological state – I've got a sneaking suspicion that I'm going a bit mad. My default condition as a law-abiding citizen is to typically play it safe to avoid ...

    Official: Silvermine 11SR track car takes shape
    1411476240

    If it seems to you like every country in the Western Hemisphere is making its own track car these days, that's because they probably are. And now we have another on our hands in the form of the Silvermine 11SR. Previewed earlier this year, the Silvermine 11SR hails from the Netherlands. It's the ...

    Rumormill: Fiat Chrysler interested in Piaggio; Mahindra considering Peugeot Motorcycles?
    1411239600

    We're not yet ready to call it a trend, but rumors have been flying that a couple more major automakers have set their sights on motorcycle manufacturers to add to their portfolios. If they do, they'll be following in the footsteps of the Volkswagen Group, which gobbled up Ducati and put it under ...
