So you’ve finally grown weary of playing Angry Birds, and after losing several hundred dollars on high-stakes games of Words with Friends, you’re burnt out on that game too. So what is a cubicle-dweller like you supposed to do to kill time? We may have found the new craze.
The Nurburgring is one of the toughest race tracks in the world. Perhaps that is why automakers look to lap times there as an unofficial benchmark for acceleration, cornering and braking. “Green Hell,” as the German track is sometimes called, is a harrowing place to navigate, even with on-track and in-car safety features of today. But what about driving there in 1967?
Do you remember the toy cars you had growing up? There was the awesome Big Wheel, and then there was the “Little Tikes” car. Do you ever wish you could relive some of those moments, wheeling around the back yard? Well a company in the UK has built that opportunity for you.
It was only a matter of time. With the ever-quickening integration of mobile technology into our cars, we knew it wouldn’t be long before Apple worked its way into a car’s user interface in a considerable fashion. Apple has teamed up with Volvo to debut Apple CarPlay, a user interface system that lets you control the touchscreen like you would your own Apple device.
Bicycles are great in that they can take you many places with just the movement of your feet. Though speed bikers can go faster, mountain bikers can get more places, and overcome more terrain obstacles. But the MTB folks have nothing on the Cyclomer, a bike that can roam on the water as well as the road.
Volvo has been trotting out some epic new concepts foreshadowing its future product. The most recent installment is the Estate Concept, and man, does it look crazy-beautiful. The exterior design is impressive, but the news is more than just skin deep.
In the early days of Top Gear, host Jeremy Clarkson reviewed many cars that would go on to become future classics. One of the most shining examples is this December, 1992 episode, where Jezza got behind the wheel of the GMC Syclone, which predated the Ford F-150 Lightning in the world of hot-rod pickups.
We took a hop and a skip on over to the 6th annual Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance in South Florida. Normally, we’re not the Concours type, but there were some sights (and sounds) that really caught our fancy while we were on the lawn of the beautiful Boca Raton Resort.
Check out these sportcoat-wearing wealthy fools and their equally wealthy rides:
If you were anywhere on the internet this time yesterday, you may have heard about Hennessey’s world record speed run. The potent Venom GT supercar made mince meat of the previous record by nearly 5 mph. At 270.49 mph, that makes it the fastest two-seat sportscar in the whole damn world.
If Ron Howard’s Rush was any indication, the motoring world and general public have been ready for serious racing movies for many years. When I say serious, I don’t mean that they take themselves serious, so much as the film takes the automotive aspect serious enough to entice the motorsport neophyte, but also satisfy the hardcore enthusiast.
I am here to say that Need for Speed is just that movie. We’re not ready to share all the details about this racing movie just yet, but in the meantime, we spoke with the film’s star, Aaron Paul, about making a racing film, and about his personal fascination with cars.
