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

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

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

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

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

Not all tools are meant to be heirlooms

We all love finely made tools. Dad's old socket set. A nice crescent wrench pilfered from the tool kit of a long-forgotten motorcycle. These are not those tools. These are the knock-around and throwaway kinda tools you need to have close at hand when you just want a project finished, and you might not have known… » 7/22/14 11:16am 7/22/14 11:16am

Professional grade coffee mugs

It's Tuesday morning. I'll go ahead and guess that you're drinking coffee and procrastinating at your desk. That's alright, so are we! Because we're not getting any work done until we get our caffeine fix, here's what the crew at Road & Track is drinking from today. Got something better? Show it off in the comments. » 6/03/14 11:20am 6/03/14 11:20am
