    1395963000

    Generally, maintaining a piece of history is a difficult venture. It's made more difficult when the history in question is a rare, complex piece of machinery. So you can imagine the task set before Rick and Rob Hall, a father-and-son team that's taken it upon themselves to preserve the legacy of ...

    1393549140

    All modern Caterhams are based on the Lotus Seven – a small, lightweight roadster developed by Colin Chapman back in 1957. That car has evolved into an entire range of models, spanning from the new, affordable 160, shown below in the latest video from XCAR, to the maniacal 620R. Over the ...

    Video: Riding along with Horacio in his Pagani Zonda S 7.3
    1391648400

    You'd imagine that as the founder of Pagani, Horacio Pagani would be in the most ridiculous car his company produces. A new Huayra, or perhaps a Zonda F Roadster, right? Nope. Instead, Mr. Pagani's personal car is a Zonda S 7.3, one of the brand's older models, which debuted way back in 2002 with ...

    Video: Meet Richard Usher, the man who spent everything to build his own racetrack
    1391475540

    Bucket lists are funny things, if only because they are so incredibly unique. A history buff might have a visit to Omaha Beach on their bucket list, while a music enthusiast might be angling for a trip to Graceland or a ticket to a Paul McCartney concert before they die. Sports fans might want to ...

    Video: This is what it takes to build a 1,000-mph car
    1391385900

    The Bloodhound SSC is the offspring of the Thrust SSC that set the world land speed record in 1997, RAF pilot Andy Green blasting across the desert at 793 miles per hour. Whereas Thrust SSC was about going supersonic, though, Bloodhound SSC is about encouraging kids to get into science - it's an ...

    1391212800

    The late Sir Alexander Arnold Constantine Issigonis, Alec Issignonis to his Internet friends, designed a car that was sold as the Morris Mini-Minor, the Austin Seven and later the Austin Mini.

    Video: XCAR drives the Morgan 3 Wheeler, proclaims it 'the best horse ever'
    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 ...

    Video: Lotus Exige S tears the roof off
    1389742140

    Some things just don't make sense. But then we're not sure they really have to. Imagine Porsche took the Cayman, which is essentially the coupe version of the Boxster, and turned it into a convertible. Wouldn't make much sense, would it? Well that's essentially what Lotus did with the creation of ...

    Video: Remembering Morgan trike-driving WWI fighter ace Albert Ball with Xcar on Veteran's Day
    1384218000

    You'll want to watch this video because it features the Morgan Threewheeler, the Harley V-twin-powered bathtub that sends the Autoblog office into a collective tizzy every time it's mentioned. But there's a much better reason to watch the latest from Xcar than the awesome, motorcycle-powered ...

    Video: Magnus Walker turbocharges his love for the Porsche 911
    1383263940

    He's had his fill of early, long-hood Porsche 911s - he owns at least one from each model year, from 1964 to 1973 - so Magnus Walker, a fanatic of the Stuttgart, Germany-based automaker, recently set his sights on the early Porsche 930, as documented by this XCAR video called 'Turbo Fever.' Let ...

    Video: Magnus Walker pops up again, this time with his Irish Green 911
    1381100640

    He was the subject of a short film called Urban Outlaw. He has been on Jay Leno's Garage. Twice. He even graced the cover of Road & Track in June. And after all of that, he appeared in a video by Hong Kong-based Silly Thing. So it isn't really surprising that Magnus Walker is at the center of ...

    Video: XCAR stages epic drag race between Ford GT40, GT70 and GT
    1376929800

    XCAR has put together what it believes is a first – a drag race between Ford's legendary, Le Mans-winning GT40, the more recent GT supercar it inspired and the little-known GT70 rally car. The three mid-engined monsters were all built for very different purposes, and not surprisingly, they ...

    Video: XCAR loves the Morgan Aero Coupe and so do we
    1372273080

    If you listen to the accountants of the world, the Morgan Aero Coupe simply shouldn't exist. With a production run of around 100 units, this car is the very definition of boutique. It reeks of nonsensical transportation. It isn't the fastest. It doesn't handle the best. It isn't even the most ...

    Video: Gas or Diesel? Xcar asks which is better in Audi's A6
    1371055500

    You know our answer. While gasoline certainly holds a special place in our hearts, it's difficult to deny the efficiency and power available from diesel fuel. XCAR recently added to their impressive list of videos by putting two Audi A6 models to the test: one with the company's stalwart ...

    1370379540

    The good people at XCAR were the first to get a ride in the new Radical RXC on public streets, and they were kind enough to bring along a few cameras to film the experience. As you may already know, Radical has made a name for itself by building wicked track cars powered by lightweight and ...

    Video: XCAR shows how Audi engineers let loose with A1 Quattro
    1369869300

    In its ultimate mortal guise, the Audi A1 Black Edition - the littlelest little guy Audi makes - costs 22,340 pounds ($33,705 US) in the UK and comes with a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder that outputs, at most, 182 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The Audi A1 Quattro - still ...

    1369076400

    Our friends at XCAR have taken the time to train their lenses on the iconic Toyota Supra. With Toyota finally back into the performance car game, it seems only logical to remember one of the brand's most legendary sports cars.
