The Lamborghini Aventador S is music for an ultra-luxury car lover's ears

The Lamborghini Aventador S is music for an ultra-luxury car lover’s ears From up above, I spotted the trio of Lamborghinis parked in formation. The unmistakable sharp, angular forms cast in red, white, and blue sparkled in the sunshine. My heart jumped as the helicopter descended onto the Poconos Raceway in Pennsylvania. The effect was as it was orchestrated to be — stunning and seductive. I was part of an effort to woo a small cadre of journalists on the attributes of the Aventador S, or at least to give…

Why is Comcast using self-driving cars to justify abolishing net neutrality?

Why is Comcast using self-driving cars to justify abolishing net neutrality?

Why is Comcast using self-driving cars to justify abolishing net neutrality? Cars of the future need to communicate wirelessly, but they don’t need the internet to do it Driving cars : Yesterday, Comcast filed its comments in favor of the FCC’s plan to eliminate the 2015 net neutrality rules. While much of the document was devoted to arguments we’ve heard before — Comcast believes the current rules are anti-competitive and hurt investment, but generally supports the principles of net neutrality — one statement stood out. Buried in the 161-page document was this quirky…

Why car and tech companies have different visions for self-driving cars

Why car and tech companies have different visions for self-driving cars For much of the 2010s, Google was the only company putting serious resources into the technology underpinning self-driving cars. That started to change in 2016, as almost every major automaker announced technology partnerships to develop their self-driving capabilities. In 2017, we’re going to start to see the fruits of those announcements on our streets. By the end of the year, there will be a lot more self-driving car prototypes on the streets of cities like Detroit, Pittsburgh, and Austin. And a…

With an electronically limited top speed of 261 mph, it’s no secret that the Bugatti Chiron is ferociously fast, but it’s unlimited top speed is still a mystery.

Despite all the rave reviews, ours included, of the new 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, its sales numbers are proving to be disappointing. The same goes for the base Giulia and mid-range Giulia Ti. According to GoodCarBadCar, a mere 2,482 Giulias have been sold so far this year. Yes, that figure includes the Quadrifoglio. To put that into clear perspective, rivals like the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series were far more successful, with 15,379…

Amazing : The US has strict import laws that are part of the Imported Vehicle Safety Compliance Act of 1988. This restricts us from importing cars until they are 25 years old. The US also has an equally stupid law called the Chicken Tax, a law from 1963 that imposes a 25 percent tax on imported potato starch, dextrin, brandy and (for some stupid reason)…

Transformed : When you think of iconic car movies, chances are you probably won’t immediately think of the 1994 cross-country comedy Dumb and Dumber starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels.

The Nissan Maxima Is Almost A True Four-Door Sports Car But it needs a few changes before it can be perfect. The Nissan Maxima was redesigned for the 2016 model year and it was a huge improvement over the previous model. Frankly, we think that Nissan hit it out of the park with the styling (both inside and out) in a segment that has been severely lacking in this area. The full-size sedan segment has dwindled and the Maxima doesn’t have much to compete with. The segment includes aging models…

For example, only a few years ago the Ferrari 308 could be had for, say, in the mid-$30,000 range, depending on overall condition and mileage, of course. Today, however, you’ll be hard pressed to find a good 308 for less than $75k (we emphasize “good”). Another notable Ferrari that’s currently going…

This move was so financially successful that other luxury automakers like Aston Martin have thought about making the same move. Now McLaren is considering taking the company public. In a story…
