  • 2006 Lamborghini Concept S

    The 2006 Lamborghini Concept S previously offered at RM Sotheby's 2017 Monterey Car Week auction is going up for sale yet again at the auction house's annual Abu Dhabi event later this month. Lamborghini's Concept S was the design brainchild of former Bentley, Lamborghini and Audi design director Luc Donckerwolke. Before departing to work for Hyundai luxury subsidiary Genesis, Donckerwolke penned this sawed-off Gallardo roadster. A total 100 examples were to be produced, but that never came to pass. The standout design element of the Concept S is the spine running down the middle, splitting...

    A super-rare variant of an already-exotic American car is up for sale: the 2006 Ford GTX1 number 33 (of no more than 40) has been listed on Bring a Trailer. This red 2006 Ford GT went under the knife at Genaddi Design Group in Wisconsin for a roadster conversion that cost $38,000 in March of 2006...

    2006 Ford GT with 24 miles seeks its first owner

    Finding a never-titled and low-mileage supercar used to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. In less than four months, two first-generation Ford GTs have surfaced for sale that fit that bill. Maybe it's a sign? The most recent example is seen here: a 2006 GT with only 24 miles on the odometer. The...

One will pop up on an auction listing site and you can practically hear bank accounts across the world tingling in...

  • 12-year-old completes oil change

    There are a handful of automotive skills that are fading as time marches forward. Less people know how to drive a manual gearbox. Changing a tire is a mystery to those with their magical AAA card. Swapping out brake pads is akin to open-heart surgery for some. However, for one father and his 12-year-old daughter, the automobile and its basic maintenance tasks will not remain a mystery. Step by step, Josie walks us through an oil change on a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu. She works safely and knows all about jack stands. From there she moves methodically through the steps, including the long time that...

  • 2006 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Coupe
    Dodge Viper Probed By NHTSA

    The Dodge Viper (current SRT Viper preliminarily excluded) is a wild beast of a machine that demands serious attention from the person driving it. It's a high-strung super sports car that enjoys running on the ragged edge. For the 2005-2006 model, that ragged edge might come at a lower limit than...

    Driver Fails To Notice Passenger Ejected From Car

    Every now and then we come across a news report where the accounts really do need to be seen to be believed. For example, take this latest story of a crash near Blackduck, MN, where a passenger was ejected from a car yet the driver and another passenger initially failed to even notice. According to...

    Toyota has issued a voluntary recall on certain models of its Lexus RX 400h luxury hybrid crossover as well as the car’s corporate cousin, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid. The recall affects only the 2006 and 2007 model years so we’re talking about the previous generation cars here...

    Lexus Recalls More Than 400,000 Vehicles For Sticking Accelerators

    Lexus is recalling approximately 409,000 vehicles for various reasons, all of which could lead to a stuck accelerator pedal.

    Chicago Car Dealer Found Armed And Naked In A Bentley

    File this one under the “You can’t make this stuff up” category. Just a week after a 17-year old was shot dead for egging a Mercedes-Benz in Atlanta, a Chicago car dealer was found in his Bentley with a loaded gun and his pants missing. Eugene Bernshtam, 43, was charged with...

  • Mel Gibson
    Video: Lunatic-Of-The-Year Mel Gibson Goes Into Hiding. In Victorian England

    Yes, that's Mel Gibson. Yes, he's wearing eyeglasses and a fake mustache. Considering all the hate being heaped on guy, he should probably be wearing a helmet and a shield and other junk they wore in Olden Tymes (we forget the terminology: we haven't been to a Ren Faire in years months), but maybe...

  • Screencap of stunt accident from the set of Transformers 3

    Last week, an extra on the set of Michael Bay's Transformers 3 was gravely injured when a stunt went horribly wrong. The actress -- 24-year-old Gabriela Cedillo -- was on a set in Hammond, Indiana, when a cable being used in the scene snapped and hit her in the head. The accident occurred during the filming of a highway stunt. It appears that Cedillo was not involved in the stunt itself; she and other extras were paid an additional $25 (over and above their average daily rate) to drive their own cars in the background of the shot. During one take, a cable connecting Cedillo's 2006 Toyota...

  • 2011 Volkswagen Phaeton
    Volkswagen Phaeton Confirmed For U.S. Return

    The Volkswagen Phaeton didn't fare so well the first time around in the U.S. Priced too high for its marque's cachet and without the styling or performance to compete with BMW or Mercedes, the Phaeton was, in short, a flop, dead after just three years on sale in America. But Volkswagen thinks it...

    First Details On Next-Gen Volkswagen Phaeton, U.S. Market Crucial

    The Phaeton flagship sedan may have been a major flop for Volkswagen but officials are keen for a launch of a successor. The car was priced similarly to BMWs and Audis but it wore a humble VW badge, and there was nothing particularly exciting or innovative about it either. It had mundane styling...
