We are on the cusp of the next generation of semi-autonomous driving technology becoming affordable. Adaptive cruise control is already trickling down to the mass market, and the more sophisticated systems found on vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class are clearly coming, as well. If you're a little adventurous, live in California and drive an Audi, you might be able to upgrade to the next stage of driverless tech even sooner. A San Francisco start-up called Cruise Automation is launching an a
According to The Sun, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz will take to the infamous Top Gear track in an attempt to topple the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car leader board.

If you've got it, why not flaunt it (and make a total fool of yourself in the process)? That seems to be the slogan of the world's most famous Scientologist, Tom Cruise. The once-cool movie star (seriously, remember him in Top Gun?) is acting about as outlandish as celebrities come these days, as his fuel spending habits prove. According to a note in Star (wait, are we quoting Star now? Oh boy) that's repeated on MSNBC (that's better), Cruise spent close to a million dollars (!) on fuel in the p
Ferrari's newly-minted record isn't in jeopardy, but we bet the driver of the lone Ferrari was kicking pebbles while hanging out with the dude who brought the SLR. Okay, probably not. Pagani's frontal assault on the supercar world, powered by an AMG V12 must have made for some sweet sounds and beautiful sights as 13 of them rolled from Milan through Como Lake to Monte Carlo for the Third International Pagani Gathering.
