The most expensive crash test in the world

We sometimes forget that ultra-powerful, mega-expensive hypercars and supercars have to undergo the same tests (more or less) as any other car, and that, yes, includes crash tests. The Nevera, the latest electric hypercar from Rimac, is now officially road legal after completing 45 (!) physical crash tests as well as many more static passive … More The most expensive crash test in the world

The long-awaited Alfa Romeo Tonale is finally here, and it comes with its own NFT

First of all, shameless plug, I also write about crypto, hence the ‘NFT’ reference in the headline. Secondly, at long last, the Tonale has finally arrived. The Alfa Tonale was first announced at the last Geneva Motor Show, which means 2019 because the 2020 and 2021 editions didn’t happen, but Alfa took its sweet time … More The long-awaited Alfa Romeo Tonale is finally here, and it comes with its own NFT

You can measure the speed of the Earth with this carbon timepiece

A couple of weeks ago I said we’d start covering watches as well, in partnership with an Instagram page called ‘The Wristwatch Dude’, mostly because of the huge overlap between cars and watches. This timepiece in particular has no significant direct connection with an automaker or a car, but it has two defining features that … More You can measure the speed of the Earth with this carbon timepiece

BVB supporter? Borussia Dortmund and Opel have built a ‘car’ for you

Borussia Dortmund, arguably one of the most popular German football clubs outside of Germany, and Opel have worked together to create this weird little thing called the Rocks-E 09. They call it an SUM, which stands for Sustainable Urban Mobility, and anybody over the age of 15 can drive it (with an AM driver’s license … More BVB supporter?

3 cars to look forward to at the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon

The Tokyo Auto Salon, traditionally held in January at the Makuhari Messe, is basically the Japanese equivalent of the Sema show in America. This year (well, technically next year), as you’d expect, it is going to be packed with electric cars but there are also a few interesting things that might make the show worth … More 3 cars to look forward to at the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon

Nikola Motor is [officially] no longer in trouble after agreeing to a multi-million-dollar settlement with the SEC

We’re gonna have to talk about Nikola for the second day in a row because after delivering its first electric semi trucks, the Arizona-based EV manufacturer is moving on, putting past legal issues behind it with a $125mln settlement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). It’s a well-known story but let’s do a … More Nikola Motor is [officially] no longer in trouble after agreeing to a multi-million-dollar settlement with the SEC

Škoda will ‘coupenise’ the Enyaq (not a real word, I know)

Škoda will turn the Enyaq, which is technically an SUV and is theoretically called ‘Enyaq IV’, into a coupe on January 31, 2022. Just like the regular Enyaq, the coupe version will be built on Volkswagen’s MEB platform, which means it’ll probably look a lot like these modern SUV/Coupes. We don’t know much about it … More Škoda will ‘coupenise’ the Enyaq (not a real word, I know)

Cupra hires the 2021 Ballon d’Or winner as a brand ambassador

There’s a watch brand I’m not gonna mention (because they don’t deserve it) that sold a lot of watches because they spent years (and cash) hiring brand ambassadors like the company’s life depended on it. Which it did, in a way. Tudor did the same thing, and placed its name back on the horological map … More Cupra hires the 2021 Ballon d’Or winner as a brand ambassador

Tesla will begin accepting Dogecoin, Musk says ‘it’s better than bitcoin’

Elon Musk was recently named “[Time] Person of The Year” and after the ‘ceremony’, he said Tesla will begin accepting Dogecoin (DOGE) payments for some merchandise, *not* for the cars. At least for now. Musk said that, as a means of payment, dogecoin is actually better than bitcoin (mostly because of transaction fees and speed). … More Tesla will begin accepting Dogecoin, Musk says ‘it’s better than bitcoin’
