  • Porsche sent 19 918 Spyders over the Alps

It might be time to hit the Alps, which is what Porsche and 19 918 Spyder owners recently did. The route was 1,500 kilometers and the $20 million strong convoy had five days to go from one end of an Alpine pass to the other. Porsche wrangled up two percent of all the 918 Spyders ever built. The plan was to set off on an incredible road trip with an astounding collection of vehicles. Even if that collection consists of only one model from Porsche, it's still amazing to see...

Once again selling the vehicle is salvage giant Copart, likely on behalf of an insurance company. Copart estimates that the repair bill for the car is approximately $600,000. Since 918 Spyders regularly sell for $1.5 million or more, for the right mechanic...

  • 2015 Lamborghini Huracan Video Road Test

    Lamborghini. For some of us, it means the Countach, the ultimate Eighties poster car, maybe the craziest supercar of all time. For others, it's the Aventador, the state of the art supercar with Italy written all over it. For us, it means the Huracán--the approachable Lamborghini, if there is such a thing. It's a blistering two-seat supercar that's just as rewarding to drive on the street as it is on the track. It's the best Lamborghini ever, in our humble opinion. We've raced it around European road courses and strafed some continental countryside. But last weekend, we found time to...
