Greg Hancock is a goddamned hero. Chris Cantle is not.

This lunatic is 44-year-old Greg Hancock. He's a Motorcycle Speedway world champion three times over. Last year, he had his left hand sucked into a competitor's rear tire. During a race. At speed. Because he's more man than should be possible by evolutionary standards, he missed one race, then got back to kicking his… » 3/10/15 2:17pm 3/10/15 2:17pm

2016 Lexus GS F gets 467-hp V8

The GS F will debut next week in Detroit, but we're as impatient as you are, so we made the most of our preview time with the GS F, and put together a photo gallery here. » 1/06/15 12:16pm 1/06/15 12:16pm

Lamborghini transformed into expensive lawnmower

They must be accustomed to wet roads up in Surrey, British Colombia. Even if they aren't experts in the rain at a minimum they're Canadian, so you'd expect local drivers to be courteous and friendly and generally very likable, even the Lamborghini-driving ones. All my expectations for our northern friends are blown… » 12/22/14 2:24pm 12/22/14 2:24pm

Christmas comes early for Lewis Hamilton

"How'd you hurt your back Lewis?" "Oh, it was just a little off-season practice incident." That's how I imagine the conversation going at least, when reigning F1 champ Lewis Hamilton has to explain his inevitable ridiculous injury to Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff. What else would you expect after giving the world's… » 12/22/14 12:30pm 12/22/14 12:30pm

Mercedes-AMG stake in MV Agusta means sweet Lamborghini-Ducati rivalry

Daimler has just announced that it has snagged a 25 percent interest in the famed Italian motorcycle MV Agusta, which will be linked to the newly-hyphenated Mercedes-AMG performance brand. » 10/31/14 10:26am 10/31/14 10:26am

Pininfarina Fuoriserie: Rarer than a LaFerrari, cheaper than a used…

You know what I like about getting email from Pininfarina? It could be about anything. It could be about a speedboat. It could be about a zillion dollar limited edition Ferrari Sergio. It could be a total accident. Today it's about a bicycle. » 10/30/14 3:05pm 10/30/14 3:05pm

Because we love you, our most requested photos as desktop wallpaper

It's almost hard work, getting all these kickass photos of Aston Martins and Porsches and Morgans with Spitfires behind them together. Almost. But we did it for you, because you asked, or someone like you asked. So here we are: a bunch of your most-requested wallpapers, yours for the taking. » 10/29/14 3:23pm 10/29/14 3:23pm

Powerslides and wide-eyed lucidity in the Local Motors Rally Fighter

If you're the type to look out at Armageddon and cheerily say, "no thanks, I've brought my own," we've found your next set of wheels: the Local Motors Rally Fighter. Imagine a Mustang that soaked up a sandrail and you get the jist. It's a sports car so overstuffed with muscle and suspension that it looks you in the… » 10/21/14 4:00pm 10/21/14 4:00pm

6 design secrets that make the Lamborghini Asterion so gorgeous

Up a narrow flight of stairs from the Paris show floor sat Lamborghini's VIP greeting area. It was a little slice of a Lamborghini dealership—espresso machines and sparkling water and the blingiest, brightest green floor model they could find, all stilted up in the hot humid air of Pavilion 4. That's where we met… » 10/10/14 4:41pm 10/10/14 4:41pm

Motorcycle gear makers! Drop acid and advertise!

Seldom can advertising mesmerize our hardened generation. This does. A project to ruggedize Chrome's already solid gear for motorcycle use resulted in improved and waterproofed backpacks, sure. But it also resulted in this, this, masterpiece! » 10/10/14 2:55pm 10/10/14 2:55pm

Nürburgring crash videos never get old, even when they're old

Who hasn't killed an hour watching other part-time heroes pack up their cherished wheels after a miscalculation at the treacherous Nürburgring? Of course, there's a long tradition of filming the wild exploits of amateur drivers, though this is the first VHS-based collection I've ever stumbled across on the internet. » 9/08/14 1:32pm 9/08/14 1:32pm

The Miata Family Photo

Cars started streaming in around 11am, by the time we arrived it was a zoo, every flavor Miata you've ever seen, spread over a hilltop on just North-West of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. » 9/06/14 8:23am 9/06/14 8:23am

A cheap car with tons of miles hits Daytona. What could go wrong?

I really thought the high banks would be the most terrifying part of the Daytona road course, but I was wrong. It's easy to stick the throttle to the floor, stare out the side glass, and wait for the corner to wind itself out. It's harder to come down from 110 mph and make the next chicane on old, all-season tires. » 8/25/14 12:00pm 8/25/14 12:00pm

If you need me, I'll be watching this F1 lava lamp.

I'm totally hypnotized. The tire rubber looks like sparks showering from circles cut in the earth. The deformed tires look like tiny spinning donut suns. Don't even get me started on the blurry hot outline of the engine. F1 was fantastic this weekend, but this? THIS IS AMAZING. » 8/25/14 11:47am 8/25/14 11:47am

Texas never ends. Things only get weirder when it does.

You've heard Texas is big, but you never know how big until you try to cross it in a tiny car with a failing AC compressor trying to reach the Daytona speedway in far-off Florida. » 8/08/14 2:52pm 8/08/14 2:52pm

Ford Super Duty prototype melts down in the desert

Prototypes break. That's the whole point. Something fails, and instead of Joe Public cursing at a service manager for an hour, it's an engineer cursing at a clipboard, and muttering about all the paperwork she'll have to file to fix the issue. Sometimes, though, the failure is more spectacular.

This 2016 Ford Super… » 8/04/14 10:06am 8/04/14 10:06am

The untold story of the Million-Mile Miata car chase

We very nearly swept this story under the rug. Not because we wanted to, but because it seemed prudent, considering it involves a somewhat reckless pursuit through the middle of Los Angeles. » 7/31/14 2:38pm 7/31/14 2:38pm

Look who's moving to our old digs

Kobe Bryant will move his business headquarters to his hometown of Newport Beach, and into the building originally built for Road & Track Magazine in the 1960s. Bought by Bryant from the City of Newport Beach, our old home office has long looked out over the Pacific Coast. They were classy digs when we occupied… » 7/23/14 11:50pm 7/23/14 11:50pm
