Not Astron! Asterion! Photos Appear of Reported Lamborghini Mega-Hybrid Set for Paris Debut

Sep 29 2014 2:09pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

In the early 1970s, Lamborghini was setting the world on its ear with the futuristic Countach and their Italianate take on the AMC Marlin, the mighty Espada. Mitsubishi, on the other hand, was working hard to integrate twin balance shafts into a modest overhead-cam four-banger. The result of these endeavors? Old man Ferruccio bailed on the company he founded in 1974. The company, though it became an ’80s-bedroom-wall sensation, didn’t find true success until ...

Goo-Net: Best Kei Ever Edition

Sep 26 2014 9:04pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

I have not made my love of the Mitsubishi Minica Dangan ZZ-4 a secret here. It's a monster. The combination of a 660cc 3-pot with 5 valves per cylinder that revs to 9500 rpm and the computer-controlled AWD system that later appeared in the Lancer Evolution stuffed into a car the size and weight of a lunchbox produces the only thing that could out-rad the kei-sports trifecta of A ...

Ever wonder how to really pronounce Japanese automaker names?

Sep 25 2014 7:06pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Etc., Japan, Videos, Honda, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Daihatsu People tend to get very set in their ways when it comes to the pronunciation of words. Just look at the endless debates over whether or not to say the final 'e' in Porsche (which you should in terms of correct German enunciation). Or the argument about whether to follow the British convention and give the 'u' in Jaguar a special delivery or to say the 'ua' ...

Here's What It's Like To Own A Crazy Rare Mitsubishi 3000GT

Sep 25 2014 1:10pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

Writing for Jalopnik certainly has its perks. For example, it allows me to have a comfortable breakfast in bed while hundreds call me an idiot for saying a Ferrari is a supercar. But on rare occasions, there emerges something truly special, in the form of a super rare '90s Japanese muscle ...

Sep 24 2014 7:54am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

VANCOUVER, B.C. – Two weeks to go until its debut at the Pacific Forest Rally in Merritt, B.C., and the first Scion FR-S rally car in Canada is still missing a few parts. Like seats. And doors. And there’s just the one gravel tire bolted on. Are the dynamic duo behind the upcoming campaign worried at all? “Oh, it’ll be done in plenty of time,” says mechanic and co-driver Nick Shtyrin, leaning back on a Nissan Skyline GT-R, “I can’t work on it ...
