I have yet to meet an owner of a Mazdaspeed3 (MS3) who didn’t legitimately love their car. Something about the car seems to inspire people, they always have that “I know something you don’t” smirk on their face. Mazdas have always had a good sporting dynamic to them, but the enthusiasm that owners seem to have about this car goes beyond that. I have always known about the MS3, but somehow, while I’ve been out driving all sorts of fun cars over the years, it has eluded me. So recently, I decided it was time I take one out for a spin to see what these owners are so smug about. Read the rest of this entry »
This is a great video showcasing two of the best roadsters in history. The Elan was the inspiration for the MX5 in a different era, and both cars have lessons to teach other carmakers today. This is pure driving and pure fun, the hell with 0-60 times and 1/4 mile runs. I can only hope that one day I get to drive a Lotus Elan like this, it is pretty high up there on my list. Enjoy the vid.
The Dark Knight was spotted out driving his Gallardo Spyder. See the rest of this on GTspirit.
My generation was the first to grow up with video games that could really simulate reality to a high degree. There are titles out there now that can simulate the likes of ruthless combat, dog fighting a fighter jet, and of course racing a car. Every generation after us will continue to grow up with these simulating games, and will wind up trying to use the experience they have gained in these games when it comes time to get behind the wheel for real. Many people out there do not believe such games hold any real merit in such skills as driving a car, but they would be hugely mistaken. Much can be learned from experience in realistic video games, but it is important to understand what translates into reality and what does not. Read the rest of this entry »
Some great cars and a few morons thrown in make this a funny and exciting video to watch.
As soon as I first laid eyes on the Evoque I knew it was going to be a game changer. It was a completely new formula for a luxury SUV that, not only, drastically redefined style, but also drivability and usability as well. Being the founding member of what seems to be an emerging segment in the high end market, the Evoque sets the precedents for future entries. I have pointed out this segment before in articles concerning the Nissan Juke and Mini Countryman, however the Evoque represents the first full on luxury offering of this sort. This past year, at Pebble Beach, Land Rover was holding Evoque test drives, so having been eager to try it out since I saw it, I signed the papers and took one out for a spin.

Former F1 driver Riccardo Patrese takes his wife for a spin in a Civic Type R. If this is what a car ride is like for them, I don’t even wanna know what things are like in the bedroom…
A solid video showing the build and the car in action. The thing is seriously fast. Enjoy.
In the past few days, since Forza 4 hit the shelves, I have devoted a rather large, and probably unhealthy amount of time to it. As a young car guy who enjoys video games I was indescribably excited for the game’s release. So after a decent amount of hours played in the game I am ready to share my thoughts.

Back in the early 2000s, the domestic automakers still had somewhat of a foothold on the American car market, but it was starting to slip. Chrysler, for one, had been under Daimler’s control for a number of years by that point, and so far, didn’t have a lot to show for it, other than the Crossfire. The Concorde, its flagship, had benefited from some good styling changes and a few equipment modifications, but was otherwise unchanged from previous years. Read the rest of this entry »
