  • Ansel Elgort, aka Baby Driver, drifts his Subaru WRX in the snow

    The film "Baby Driver" was one of the surprise hits of 2017. If you enjoy doing silly things in cars, then the odds are good that you also enjoyed this movie and the vehicular exploits of the titular character Baby. The actor who portrayed Baby is Ansel Elgort. He owns one of the red Subaru WRX sedans used during filming, and he's still clearly having plenty of fun with the car as he recently posted a video in which he throws down some snowy donuts. Nyc snowstorm no worries baby will give u a ride pic.twitter.com/oUyVi787BH — Ansel Elgort (@AnselElgort) January 4, 2018 According to...

    Here's What Fiat's Sergio Marchionne Drives For Fun

    Running a major automaker involves lots of hard work and plenty of long hours, but rank hath its privileges. In addition to the six-or-seven figure salary plus stock options, it’s pretty much a given that the CEO gets to pick any car (or really, any cars) from the company catalog to drive...

    How Many Cylinders Does A Supercar Need To Have? #YouTellUs

    Automakers are downsizing engines and adding hybrid powertrains to many next-generation supercars. But this raises the question: how many cylinders does a supercar need to have? Engines with fewer cylinders provide many benefits as outlined earlier today by McLaren. Ranging from less weight and...

  • OnStar

    It's often the way with the modern world: The products and services we use aren't just products and services any more - they're experiences. Where once you used to use a car to get from A to B with the occasional trip via C, now you can be as connected to your life on the internet as you are with your smartphone or home PC. The downside of this is that a lot more of your personal information is constantly in transit, whether paying for stuff when you're out and about or just driving around with a GPS signal trapping you. And with a recent change to GM's OnStar terms of service agreement...

    Reduce, Re-use, Recycle: Chevy Volt's Power Pack Planter

    Reducing fuel consumption and emissions is only one aspect of automotive sustainability - at the end of a car's life comes the time for its components to be re-used and recycled. We'd hope for Chevrolet's sake that its 2011 Volt models aren't already reaching the end of their life-cycles but it's...

Normally for this sort of experience you'd be...

    Just two days before the 2011 New York Auto Show opens to the press, Audi has launched an eye-popping marketing campaign for its sleek, sophisticated 2012 A7. Today, the five-door coupe will roll straight into Times Square -- not literally, since cars are forbidden in the pedestrian center of town...

    Jewel Is Alive And Well, Thanks To Her Cadillac SRX

    We haven't heard much from Jewel in a while, and many of us were beginning to think that she might've headed off to a retirement Vanagon somewhere in Alaska, bringing her chapter in American pop music (and her brief footnote in American poetry) to an end. But now we know that Jewel is still alive...

  • Mercedes-Benz Tweet Race to the Big Game

    The celeb-studded Mercedes-Benz "Tweet Race to the Big Game" is about to get underway, with the four two-person teams and their "coaches" chosen. Using Twitter as some sort of "fuel" they'll race to reach Dallas, Texas for the Super Bowl. Fans of each team stand to win prizes for their participation on Twitter, including a VIP trip for two to the Super Bowl or a set of Mercedes-Benz luggage. If you're a social media nut, it might be worth getting involved. At the very least it should be interesting to watch, as the teams are as disparate as the cars they'll be driving. Team S is behind the...

    Poll: Does The 2012 Buick Regal GS Meet Your Expectations?

    Last week Buick showed off the production version of the 2012 Regal GS to some very mixed reactions.

  • 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS

    Our guys are still moving their way eastward across the country as they participate in the Fireball Run, and here's a quick peek at what happened on days three and four of the Run. On Day Three, our guys had no problems with the Fireball Run's assorted missions, only missing one 10-point bonus. But despite being armed with a battery of navigation systems, our intrepid co-drivers struggled a bit with navigation. This isn't their fault--technology led them astray. Yes, even in 2010, GPS navigation isn't perfect, and it can lead you into a 50-mile cellular dead spot--twice. So our guys have...
