Does Aspark Want Us To Bone This Car Or What

I had forgotten about Japanese automaker Aspark and its all-electric hypercar, the Aspark Owl, until today. It’s certainly a cool-looking thing with incredibly aspirational performance claims.

Why Motor Trend’s Dyno Test Of The 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Revealed Huge But Wrong Power Numbers

Residents of Beverly Hills have one less thing to be concerned about, one less worry to add to the considerable pile of their difficult, hardscrabble lives: their streets are safe from prowling leopard-print sofas with tall, lanky Brits on them.

Japan Wants You To Stop Buying All Its Skyline GT-Rs

Being in the export and import business in Japan pays off. As sketchy as that might sound, Japan exports a little over a million used cars every year. Most of these cars are pretty unremarkable, bound for emerging markets and New Zealand. But a small percentage of cars leaving Japan every year are held dear […]

Chevrolet C8 Corvette Bows Down To Its New Lord: Snow

Look, I get it. For many cars, snow is kryptonite. You lose grip, the weight transfer gets all funny and you can’t really steer or brake well.

Ken Block Shipped His Hoonitruck To A Chinese Mountain So You Could See Climbkhana 2 On 11/18

You may know Ken Block from such films as Gymkhana 10, or Climbkhana. The latter of the two was a wild sideways-and-smokey run up Pikes Peak with cinematography help from the legendary Jeff Zwart.
