The Original Aston Martin Lagonda Is One Of The Most Bizarre Cars Ever Made The Original Aston Martin Lagonda Is One Of The Most Bizarre Cars Ever Made

Aston Martin has a long history of side-hustle attempts at creating luxury sedans, and their first big shot at it started in the 1970s with the Aston Martin Lagonda limousine—an oddball sedan with more quirks than you could count.

This Is What Happens When Doug DeMuro Gets Grafted Into Initial D This Is What Happens When Doug DeMuro Gets Grafted Into Initial D

Well, here’s my favorite car video today. It’s the internet’s Most Sensible Car Reviewer Extraordinaire Doug DeMuro in Initial D.

The Lamborghini Countach Is Great Because It Was Terrible The Lamborghini Countach Is Great Because It Was Terrible

I’ve been thinking long and hard about why modern-day supercars just don’t excite me like they used to, and I think part of the reason is that they’re pretty good at being cars most of the time. They do what they’re supposed to, and while that’s fine, it also makes them boring. Unlike the Lamborghini Countach.

The Most Expensive Cadillac From 40 Years Ago Is The Correct Way To Be Luxurious The Most Expensive Cadillac From 40 Years Ago Is The Correct Way To Be Luxurious

Building cars strictly for luxury and not for sport is all but dead. The 1977 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz was the personal luxury coupe’s last grand hurrah before the oil crisis pushed a need to downsize. Doug DeMuro sums this car up best when he says, “I feel like I’m driving a condominium.”

The 2017 Ford GT Makes Most Supercars Look Soft The 2017 Ford GT Makes Most Supercars Look Soft

The 2017 Ford GT is, without question, a tremendous marvel of an exotic supercar, pushing the envelope in technology, performance, appearance, engineering, and cool features. It also shares its engine block with the Ford F-150 EcoBoost. This fact alone will cause many people—exotic car purists—to dismiss the GT as not…

The Tesla Model X Is An Awful Car Until It Isn't

No recent vehicle is more polarizing at Jalopnik, in the industry or in automotive culture than the Tesla Model X right now. Why? Because it’s a fundamentally promising vehicle that looks like a blanched egg, and from a company that’s going through growing pains. You’ve heard a lot of good and bad, but is the Model X…

The Porsche 911 has only one problem, if you want to travel with passengers in the back seat they can’t have legs. Someone decided to “improve” the 911's cockpit by moving the steering wheel to the middle, like a McLaren F1. This creation can be yours for $53.491.

Here's How Fast An Aston Martin V8 Vantage Is On The Bonneville Salt Flats Here's How Fast An Aston Martin V8 Vantage Is On The Bonneville Salt Flats

It’s a rite of passage for every car enthusiast to experience the sheer thrill of going full throttle in the land that time forgot, also known as the Bonneville salt flats. However, since most of us have things called jobs and responsibilities, we’ll have to live vicariously through the antics of one quirky automotive…

Here’s Why Owning A Ford GT Is Harder Than You Think

Poor old Doug DeMuro had to drive seven hours in his Aston Martin Vantage to test drive the 2006 Ford GT. Now he’s trying to convince us this example of American automotive perfection actually has downsides. What nerve!

Large Man Awkwardly Drives Small Car Large Man Awkwardly Drives Small Car

Yeah, I met this gangly YouTuber once. Kept telling me he “owned a Ferrari” and made me follow him on Twitter before he’d let go of my hand. Makes sense that he’d spend his whole drive in a Ferrari race car complaining about the air conditioning.

A Farewell To Jalopnik (For Now) A Farewell To Jalopnik (For Now)

The time has come: today is my final day as a regular contributor to Jalopnik. From this moment on, you’ll be able to find all my writing at the new automotive enthusiast-focused page Autotrader.com/Oversteer, where I’ve been hired as editor. But as much as I’m excited for my new gig, leaving behind Jalopnik after…

The Time Smoke Came Pouring Out
Of My Brand New Ferrari The Time Smoke Came Pouring Out Of My Brand New Ferrari

As I look back on the ownership of my Ferrari 360 Modena about a year after I sold it, I think I can finally say that I’ve pinpointed the major reasons why I didn’t like it.

For a long time, you have suspected there was a difference between affording to buy a used exotic car and affording to own a used exotic car. Today, your suspicions will be confirmed.

My Year In Nissan Skyline, Hummer And Other Car Adventures My Year In Nissan Skyline, Hummer And Other Car Adventures

There comes a time in every person’s life when he takes stock of his last year and he remembers all the wonderful time he spent with family, and friends, and colleagues, and also how he crushed a wood-paneled Chrysler PT Cruiser with a giant sport-utility vehicle that looks like Big Bird.

Hummer For a Year Here’s What It Was Like to Own a Hummer For a Year

People of Jalopnik, I have sold my Hummer. Yes, that’s right: my giant, slow, loud, gas-guzzling, unreliable behemoth of a Hummer is now officially someone else’s problem. I am ecstatic, as is the Southeastern Pennsylvania office of the Environmental Protection Agency.

What's The Best Car For A Teenager? What's The Best Car For A Teenager?

Is it right to give a new car to a high schooler? Should they drive old crapboxes? As a parent, what would you do? Doug DeMuro, the Classic Car Club Manhattan’s Jeanette Klein and our Nicole Conlan debate the choices and Tavarish brings in the used cars you should buy.

Laugh At Our Pain Squeezing An Old Hummer H1 Through Philadelphia

I was so excited when Doug DeMuro invited me to off-road his Hummer! Of course when I got to his house; “Hah, no, I’m not paying for gas to drive all the way to the woods. Don’t worry. I got some fun roads for you to try.” ...I should seen the red flags right there.

I Got Paid $1,000 To Park My Ferrari On A Movie Set I Got Paid $1,000 To Park My Ferrari On A Movie Set

I recently earned $1,000 by doing nothing. It was an excellent experience, and I highly recommend it to anyone who's sick of making money through normal channels, such as work.

Why Yes, You Can Drive a Ferrari Every Day Why Yes, You Can Drive a Ferrari Every Day

As you might imagine, I get a lot of questions when I'm driving my Ferrari. "Hey, you, in the Ferrari!" people shout, for example. "Do you know there are flames shooting out from your engine?"
