Why Men Love Driving A Mini

In a distant episode from the Simpsons, Nelson once laughed at a man exceedingly crammed in a small car. His tune immediately changed as an 8′ giant stepped out of the car and taught the young bully lesson, forcing an apology and making him do the walk of shame in his underpants. Nelson quickly learned his lesson – never underestimate a guy in a small car. Times have changed since then. The gawkers have diminished in numbers as more men are selecting smaller vehicles over larger  ...

Huffington Post: Ford F150 Road Trip

Reggie and Madaline recently completed a road trip to Creemore and Wasaga Beach, Ontario in the new 2016 Ford F-150 Limited, sponsored by Autoroad. In terms of summer vacationing, this summer most Canadians can agree on one thing: travelling to the US may not be in the budget. The Canadian dollar is at an unfortunate low, and as most analysts are identifying Canadians as hesitant of heading south of the border, we look elsewhere to more economically friendly destinations. As such, short of  ...

‘Audi R8 V10 plus selection 24h’ is an awkward name for a gorgeous car

Audi is introducing a special edition of its R8 sports car to celebrate its victory at the Nürburgring 24 Hours last year in the racing version of the car, the R8 LMS. It’s called the "Audi R8 V10 plus selection 24h." It’s a weird name — but there’s nothing weird about the beautiful car itself. It’s based on the already great Audi R8 V10 plus, but has a number of additional special bits to make this 24-unit limited edition run a little more special. A ton  ...

9 Stylish Features in the 2016 Jaguar XJL

There’s something synonymous between style and the Jaguar. Call it a bond between the British luxury car maker and its visionary design director, Ian Callum. Or maybe it’s the decades of industry-leading design, dating back to 1945. Or it could be as simple as saying the jaguar is the coolest feline in the animal kingdom. Whatever that theoretical reason may be: the Jaguar and its ferocious style are predatory in the auto industry. Oddly enough, when someone thinks of a modern  ...

A Silicon Valley entrepreneur is bootstrapping his own self-driving racing series

Every month, it seems, we get closer to a world full of self-driving cars.

Watch a Ferrari F12 and Lamborghini Aventador Roadster Hit the Drag Strip

There are a lot of differences between the Ferrari F12 and Lamborghini Aventador. But at the same time, there are a few similarities too. They both have about 700 horsepower, give or take. They both are large touring cars. And they both make everything else on the road look inferior—but that’s beside the point. With that in mind, two drivers took to the track in their respective Italian supercars; the Ferrari F12, with a 731 horsepower V12, and the Lamborghini Aventador, with a 691  ...

The self-driving race cars of Roborace will have a brain from Nvidia

The autonomous race cars in the upcoming Roborace driverless racing series will use Nvidia’s Drive PX 2 supercomputer as a brain.

It can combine information from a wide array of sensors, including radar, LIDAR, cameras, GPS, and high-definition maps. Roughly translated, that means it’s a very, very smart car. Driving on a  ...
