Bellissima!

Spada Codatronca Monza

So Lamborghini and Ferrari have the market on Italian exotic cars. Perhaps there’s room for another. The Spada Codatronca Monza (no, it’s not a tomato based pasta dish) actually has some serious Italian blood coursing through its veins. Ercole Espada was once chief stylist for Zagato, a design house that needs no introduction. He moved...

Heart of Darkness

Aston Martin DBS Superior Black Edition by Anderson Germany

We’ve all seen tuner cars gone bad. Take a perfectly good car and throw on parts that make it look like you hot glued a bookshelf on for a rear wing. Every so often someone does tuning right. In the case of the Aston Martin DBS Superior Black Edition, Anderson Germany has done just that....

British in all the right ways

2012 Aston Martin Virage Coupe

Aston Martin produces some of the sexiest sheetmetal in the automotive industry today, and the tally now stands at 8 (we’re not counting the diminutive Cygnet in this group).

Monster, Inc.

2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO

Behold Ducati’s new flagship Monster, the 1100EVO ($11,995). Of course, with flagship status comes flagship features and the Duc hardly disappoints.

He Bought It for "Zoom"

John Lennon’s Ferrari 330 GT

Owning a Ferrari 300GT 2+2 coupe would be cool on its own, but acquiring one originally owned by John Lennon — that also happened to be his first car — takes things to an entirely different level. While Lennon himself paid about $3,104 for the whip back in 1965 after passing his driver’s test, rest...

Roam On the Range, Or Anywhere Else You Damn Please

Earth Roamer XV-JP

The Merecedes Benz G-Wagon LAPV 6.X and the Icon CJ3B definitely have off-roading capabilities in spades, but they certainly don’t have a Loftop with 9 feet of interior stand up height, a queen-size bed, a 25 gallon fresh water capacity, a toilet, shower, sink, cooking facilities, and a solar-powered fridge. In case you were wondering...

Because Life Doesn't Start Until 250 mph

2011 Shelby Supercars Ultimate Aero II

The yet-to-be-released 2011 Shelby Supercar Ultimate Aero II is the kind of vehicle Maverick might hop in to dogfight Jester, only to realize after hitting 275 mph that the vehicle doesn’t actually take to air. At least that’s the impression these newly released photos by Top Gear convey.

King of the Road? Try Sultan

Can Your Dog Learn a New Trick?

Doggie Fountain

After spending a long winter couped up, summer is the time for man’s best friend to cut loose. Especially if you have a backyard that they can explore even when you’re away at work.

Lighter, Faster, Tremendous(er)

2011 Audi R8 GT

Move aside Lamborghini Gallardo LP560, Audi’s in town with the bigger, badder 2011 Audi R8 GT ($250,000). 560 hp and 398 lb-ft torque (yes, the same Lambo), ensure the R8 GT will bully with the best (though we’ll settle for our Audi S5). Ingolstadt’s scientists/artists have coaxed and wooed the 5.2 FSI V10 to the...

Dark... and Dangerous

2011 Hennessey Venom GT

A Lotus Elise with the engine of a Corvette ZR1 (725 hp/741 lb-ft supercharged 6.9 liter V8). Sounds like a recipe for tire-shredding mayhem, right? Well, you’d be correct if Hennessey didn’t also make it’s new 200 mph 2011 Venom GT available with a twin-turbocharged 1,000 hp/900 lb-ft torque OR an orbit-defying 1,200 hp/1,100 lb-ft...

Wicked Comes In A Black Two-Door

2010 Brabus E V12 Coupe

The Whip of Choice for Baller Sith Lords

Aston Martin Limited Edition Carbon Black Vantage

The self-proclaimed auto industry-obsessed Autoblog has surfaced another ridiculous spectacle in the world of luxury sports cars. It’s distinguished from standard Aston Martin V12 Vantage sport coupes by its sinister black metallic finish, which apparently looks different depending on the viewing angle and requires over 50 man hours to apply. The inside naturally also received...

Domestic Insanity

2010 Hennessey HPE700 LS9 Camaro

The 2010 Hennessey HPE700 LS9 Camaro is proof that American muscle is not dead, but rather in the hands of mad scientists who love cramming bigger engines into products not originally intended for them. In other words, a good place and a guaranteed recipe for either disaster or utter torque-laden bliss. How does one get...
