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

Will this year’s Super Bowl still be car-friendly?

This year’s Super Bowl will likely go down in history as the ‘crypto bowl’, given the amount of dollars that crypto companies have invested in the event. It’s a world’s first, and we don’t know how it’ll play out. A wide array of crypto companies are on board, including top flight players like Coinbase, FTX … More Will this year’s Super Bowl still be car-friendly?

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

The range-topping DBX 707 is a bit faster, but also a bit… less elegant

The cycle repeats: a car manufacturer that has never built anything other than sportscars is essentially forced to build an SUV because that’s what the market wants (fair enough), and then they try to turn that SUV into a massive supercar by giving it wings and a lot of power. That’s exactly what happened with … More The range-topping DBX 707 is a bit faster, but also a bit… less elegant

Batman will sooner or later drive this electric hypercar

This is the Spéirling, built by McMurtry Automotive, and this is a track-only (no s**t) electric hypercar delivering 1000 bhp. It’s kinda complicated because for starters, there only two motors and both are located at the rear, meaning the car is an RWD. The Spéirling relies on a complex puzzle of wings, massive diffusers, and … More Batman will sooner or later drive this electric hypercar

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

The ‘MC Edition’ Ghibli and Quattroporte are a friendly reminder that the game has changed

Permission to speak candidly and rant? I’m so over these ‘special-edition’ variants of cars that have been around for too long. I love Maserati, I want Maserati to triumph just as much as I want Abarth to triumph, but like most brands from the FCA era (now Stellantis), they can’t innovate and keep injection life … More The ‘MC Edition’ Ghibli and Quattroporte are a friendly reminder that the game has changed

At the moment, it is exclusively dedicated to the UK market. Pretty simple and straightforward: for £599 a month (for at least 6 months) you … More Why own a car when you can drive five of them?
