Driven: Lexus F Sport

When Lexus was born, it was known as "Circle F." The first car they developed was Flagship One, "F1," which became the LS. Lexus was born of out of the box thinking; the “F” marque is history repeating.

Ricardo Santos Formula 1 & Rally Car Illustrations

Ricardo Santos Formula 1 & Rally Car Illustrations

We don't pick up too many Portugese car magazines, but after seeing the work of Ricardo Santos, we might just start. The illustrator and car mag contributor draws both Formula 1 and rally cars in a unique retro and clean style. These aren't like the minimalist posters that keep p...

Hands-On: Sole Bicycles

Hands-On: Sole Bicycles

We get it. There is a certain appeal to a fixed gear bike. The simplicity and clean lines of a fixie capture the essence of bicycling while giving the impression that rider and bike are one with each other. So when Venice, California based Sole’ Bicycles offered to send us one of their fixies to check out, we were stoked.

Driven: 2014 Toyota Corolla

Driven: 2014 Toyota Corolla

We feature a lot of cars that, while great to look at, aren't exactly in most people's budget. So when Toyota approached us about being one of the first groups to test out the new 2014 Corolla, we thought it might actually be informative for readers looking to make a daily driver purchase. Toyota sent us out to San Diego to test drive the new 2014 Corolla L, LE, LE Eco, and S and here's what we thought:

8 Cars We Wish We Could Get in the U.S.

8 Cars We Wish We Could Get in the U.S.

8-cars-we-wish-could-get-us It was just about five years ago that American auto enthusiasts had something to celebrate. After years upon years of anticipation, the iconic Nissan Skyline GT-R was now available in the States branded simply as the GT-R. Sure, we know that other versions of the Skyline made it here under the Infiniti G35 name, but this was the GT-R or as it is so kindly referred to, Godzilla. Fast forward to 2013. After an 18 year hiatus, Alfa Romeo is making its triumphant return to the US with the Alfa Romeo 4C. Thanks for the history lesson, right? But, this begs the question, what the f else are we missing out on? Behold, the coolest cars we just can’t get here in America.

8 Vintage SUVs We Want Right Now

8 Vintage SUVs We Want Right Now

8-coolest-vintage-suvs We all know the appeal of the SUV. It brings about a sense of adventure filled with thoughts of powering through snow-covered roads while other lesser cars get stuck or trekking to a remote cabin in the woods for a weekend of camping. And while today’s SUVs are marvelous with their iPhone connectivity and plush leather seating, you are way more likely to find one filled with groceries on the way to Starbucks for a latte. So we decided to go on a mission. A mission to find the origin of the SUV, to invoke the nostalgia of the first time we saw a Jeep CJ. We are talking about sheet metal, vinyl interiors, and carbureted engines. Four-wheel drive, not all-wheel drive. A mission to find the coolest vintage SUVs.

Man Builds a Lamborghini in His Basement

Man Builds a Lamborghini in His Basement

The-Story-Behind-the-Lacoste-Crocodile-Shirt-1 What do you have going on in your basement? Some mold growing? A random collection of crumpled red Solo cups accruing in the corner? Whatever it is, it's not as crazy as this. Ken Imhoff, a sports car nut with a bit of time on his hands, spent 17 years building a Lamborghini Countach from scratch in his basement. Back in 2008 he finally finished constructing the ride. Afterwards, Ken simply excavated to get his new wheels outside. You know, just dig a hole through your basement wall after you've removed the ground in front of it. No comment from his wife.

LEGO Cars from 80s Shows & Movies

LEGO Cars from 80s Shows & Movies

Back in the 80's, the only things we were building with LEGO bricks were cars that looked like giant boxes on wheels. If our rides actually existed, people would be hitting overpasses, bumping into people in other lanes, and having to deal with a multitude of blind spots whenever...

Batman Tumbler Replica

Batman Tumbler Replica

We don't go around telling people how to spend their money (okay, we kinda do in a way), but we can tell when someone has spent their money wisely, and the gents from Team Galag have spent some $1.6 million very, very wisely . . . by building a Batman Tumbler replica. The street-...

NYC Bikes

NYC Bikes

If you live in NYC, owning a bike is as much a necessity as knowing good pizza places and despising tourists. For most, it's the easiest way to get around that doesn't require filling up a MetroCard. Most of the rides you'll see as you navigate the city blocks are run-of-the-...

Nissan Juke-R

Nissan Juke-R

When the Nissan Juke was originally released, men everywhere released a collective sigh of total ambivalence. It was never bad looking, or incredibly slow, or horribly expensive and it's decently spacious, but there was never a wow factor either. Nothing to grab you by the na...

Cool Material Test Drives Scion iQ

The first time I saw a Scion cruising down the road about 5 or 6 years ago, I thought “What is that?” It didn’t really impress me or impact me much at all, but I remembered the name Scion and I began to see the Toyota owned company grow. Unbeknownst to me, I was not...

Megatron Tank

Megatron Tank

If you thought the scariest thing you could see on the road was some guy in a Hummer talking on his cell while sipping a chai latte, think again.  Some dude in China who goes by the name Steel Legend has built himself an 11,000lbs Megatron Tank.  Our DIY projects while cool...

Morgan Threewheeler

Morgan Threewheeler

Threewheelers are, in all honesty, a little bit weird. It's not really a car and it's not a motorcyle, so what is it? We could go into a bunch of details about the original Morgan (won the French grand prix in 1913, set several long-distance speed records in the 1930s and lap...
