    1390352400

    There are any number of adjectives we could come up with to describe the Morgan 3 Wheeler – fun, exotic, playful, retro – but we'd never have thought to compare it to a horse. Interestingly, that's exactly what the blokes from XCAR in the UK came up with while testing out the little ...

    Whether the board of the Morgan Motor Company was justified or not in ousting its former chief executive from its ranks, you could understand that Charles Morgan might take a defiant stand.

    Video: Watch an owner compare his Pagani Huayra and Zonda at Goodwood
    1385859540

    It's not often that you'll find a Pagani Zonda and a Pagani Huayra in the same place, at the same time - much less on a racetrack. Pagani makes incredibly rare supercars. But Peter Read owns both a 2005 Zonda Roadster and a new Huayra, so he decided to bring them to Goodwood Circuit for a little ...

    Official: Morgan 3 Wheeler gets substantial performance, reliability updates for 2014
    1385407740

    The Morgan 3 Wheeler has a special sort of universal appeal: many people will admire it, but only a few will actually buy one.

    The Vector M12 is an American supercar that never really made it. Children of the 1980s and 1990s that read too many issues of Car and Driver growing up tend to have a soft spot for all things Vector, but the Lamborghini-powered machine just couldn't make a go of it with a price tag of nearly ...
