Is Driving a Certain Car Your Ticket to Traffic Court?

Sep 30 2014 1:49pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

Look, just because you drive a Subaru WRX doesn't mean you're more likely to be the type of person who exceeds the speed limit or breaks other traffic laws. OK, it actually does mean that, but we're not the ones saying it, Insurance.com is. The auto-insurance rate-comparison website analyzed online quote info from more than half a million drivers and more than 500 car models between January 2013 and July 2014, and identified the cars most likely ...

Holy Hellcat! First 707-hp Challenger Hellcat—VIN No. 1!—Goes for $825K at Barrett-Jackson

Sep 30 2014 9:59am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

It’s become somewhat of a tradition for American automakers to auction off early examples of their performance automobiles for charity. Over the weekend, Sergio’s brigade put the very first Challenger SRT Hellcat off the line up for bid at Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas auction. When the gavel came down at Mandalay Bay, the stonking Dodge had hit $825,000. $825,000. For a shortened Chrysler 300 with a blower, a headlamp glory hole, and some big brakes. Sure, it was painted Stryker Red in t ...

Suck It, Mustang: 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Loses More Camo, Comes Into Clearer Focus

Sep 29 2014 4:16pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

A lighter and tighter Chevrolet Camaro this way comes. The last time we checked in on Chevy’s pony car was a few months ago, when we were published aerial spy photographs of the car being evaluated at General Motors’ proving grounds. That prototype was well-camouflaged, but its general shape gave it away as the 2016 Camaro. The car pictured here is clearly a Camaro, and its details are now on clearer display—and from a more normal vantage point. Now that the Camaro has shed its bulky co ...

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.

Old man Ferruccio bailed on the company he founded in 1974. The company, though it became an ’80s-bedroom-wall sensation, didn’ ...
