The FIA has mandated a new wastegate in the exhaust systems of Formula One cars to make them sound better. It also released a revised calendar for the 2016 World Championship.
"You talking to me? Are you talking to me?" All right, so DeNiro probably isn't the first thing you thought of when you saw the image above, but the gent pictured is the real, gritty thing - a New York City taxi driver. Photographers Philip Kirkman and Shannon McLaughlin snapped enough photos of some game NYC yellow cab drivers to create a 2014 calendar that is unintentionally irresistible in ways we can't begin to capture in words.
September means the end of summer vacation, but the automotive festivities continue, including the Paris Motor Show at the very end of the month. We'll have a full team coverage in the City of Lights, but that's almost a month away. Between now and then there are hundreds of car-related events to keep all but the most rabid gearheads satisfied.
August is here, meaning it's time for our annual pilgrimage to Monterey for the smorgasbord of classic and collectible cars that awaits. Events there include Gordon McCall's Motorworks Revival, The Pebble Beach Tour, Concorso Italiano, The Quail, the auctions, The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, Concours d'LeMons and the granddaddy of them all – The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. We'll be on hand to cover it all for you, just in case you can't make the trip yourself.
July means Independence Day to most Americans, but it also means racing, concours, auctions, shows, meets, rallies, and tons of other summer car fun. As July 9 has officially been dubbed Collector Car Appreciation Day, it's only fitting that we start off with a couple of vintage car events. The Goodwood Festival of Speed takes place the first weekend in July this year, with three days of vintage and exotic car action from West Sussex, England. The Meadow Brook Concours will once again bring some
The end of May celebration of Memorial Day signals the unofficial start of Summer in the States, and that means tons of local car meets, shows, concours and drives. Some of the biggies in June include the Greenwich Concours d'Elegance and Orphan Car Show, and the 46th Annual LA Roadsters Show, Dana Point, Huntington Beach, Rodeo Drive and Pismo Beach Concurs in Southern California.
We've wrapped up our Beijing Motor Show coverage as April closes and May begins, signaling the end of the major international auto show season. We'll have a spring and summer full of concours, racing, meets, exhibitions and more to keep us busy though until the new car reveals pick up again in October at the Paris Motor Show.
We were getting a bit of spring fever, so thank goodness April is here to help us out. The New York Auto Show concludes the major American show season this month, with several key debuts scheduled for the exhibition at the Jacob Javits center and the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition happens a couple of weeks later.
Auto show season keeps marching on in March with wall-to-wall coverage coming your way from the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, which is just winding down. Motorsports enthusiasts can look forward to the start of the 2010 Formula One season with all the action kicking off in Bahrain, followed two weeks later by the Australian Grand Prix. American open-wheel fans have IndyCar action in Brazil and St. Petersburg in March, while NASCAR visits Atlanta, Martinsville and Bristol. For fans of the unorthodox, t
Just like January equals Detroit, February means Chicago for auto show lovers. The major players will again descend upon McCormick Place in the Windy City, along the banks of the still-frozen Lake Michigan. Other auto shows in February include the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto, plus regional shows in Philadelphia and Syracuse. Hot Rodders have the Sacramento Autorama to look forward to, while classic car aficionados have Boca Raton and The Desert Classic in La Quinta to get the Conc
January 2010 not only kicks off a new year, but also signals the end of the Naughties. The automotive landscape has changed quite a bit since the days of the Y2K scare, but some things remain the same. January still hosts the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) at Cobo Hall in Detroit, the racing season roars to life with the Rolex 24 at Daytona, Barrett-Jackson and the rest of the auction houses will still be propping up their tents in Arizona, and the RetroMobile classic car show an
