3Mercedes offering Spirit of AMG "Emotion Tours" to Affalterbach

Unless you're into robot spotting, it doesn't take many factory tours before you punch the 'Been There Done That' card. Of course, there are exceptions, such as when AMG bundles tours of its Affalterbach facilities with excursions like jazz concerts, golf, and driving its growling wares over the rivers and through the mountains of Bavaria and Switzerland... or Hockenheim.

53MADD angry at Flying Fish brewery for naming beers after NJ freeway exits?

It is acceptable to name your alcoholic beverage after a moving vehicle so long as a car isn't the vehicle in question; e.g. Night Train Express wine and Warbird beer (How about Thunderbird? - Ed). In fact, it's frowned upon to give alcohol a name that can even be associated with cars. New Jersey craft brewer Flying Fish has attracted the attention of MADD, the NJ Turnpike Authority (NJTA), and the press for breaking the taboo with its line of beers named after exits on the New Jersey Turnpike.

10Artist creates full scale F1 car from recycled styrofoam

We have no idea why Michael A. Salter wanted to create a race car out of polystyrene packing waste, and we guess it doesn't matter -- he did, and this is the result. We don't have much any information on the single-seater open-wheeler other than that it's on display at the John Ross Plaza Studio in Portland, Oregon.

AddStudios fighting for DeLorean biopic

It doesn't take a genius to figure out why Hollywood is working on a film about a car company going kaput. You might wonder, however, why three different factions are working on another movie about John Z. DeLorean. Brett Ratner is collaborating with producer Robert Evans on one pic, and Face/Off producer David Permut has another version in the works. Now Time, Inc Studios becomes the third horse in the race, working from material published in Time and Fortune magazines and an unpublished memoir
