What The Hell Is A Pegaso Z-102? What The Hell Is A Pegaso Z-102?

If you didn’t realize there was a small Spanish state-owned company building beautiful V8 convertibles in the early 1950s, well... there was. Now you know. And this video is the perfect introduction to Pegaso, and plain old eye candy for everybody.

See Inside The 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor With This Cool Cutaway

The 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor is a mid-sized off-road performance truck, and while I probably shouldn’t get too excited about it until I at least drive the non-Raptor U.S. version, what can I say, I’m a sucker for cutaways and this video is a neat quick deconstruction of the truck.

2019 Range Rovers Will Be Easier to Drive in Water 2019 Range Rovers Will Be Easier to Drive in Water

The real big news about the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover and Range Rover Sport is the introduction of the P400e plug-in hybrid trim, which can apparently drive 31 miles on its battery alone. Both SUVs get a few other little updates for the new model year but a water wading depth sensor sounds like the most fun.

2018 Hyundai Ioniq Is a Car to Get if You Love Money 2018 Hyundai Ioniq Is a Car to Get if You Love Money

“Not much to this thing,” I thought as I plopped into the 2018 Hyundai Ioniq’s firm driver’s seat and gripped its rock-hard plastic steering wheel. Then I found the price tag: just over $23,000. Then I found the fuel range: just over... holy crap, 600 miles? As far as new cars go, this is quite a penny pincher.

The 2019 Ford Ranger Started At $24,000 According To A Configurator That Wasn't Supposed To Be Live (Updated) The 2019 Ford Ranger Started At $24,000 According To A Configurator That Wasn't Supposed To Be Live (Updated)

The 2019 Ford Ranger has been a fantasy of American mid-sized truck fans since the model went away years ago. If you’ve been eagerly awaiting its return, you’d have been excited to see that Ford’s official build-and-price was briefly live today. Ford has since told us that it was not supposed to launch until next…

I Figured Out Who Took All the Window Louvers I Figured Out Who Took All the Window Louvers

I’m sure some people reading this are old enough to remember when window louvers were prime automotive fashion accessories. The somewhat ominous-looking sun-deflecting slats were all the rage on sports cars with long raked rear windows in the 1970s and 80s. But uh, I’ve never seen them gathered as densely as they are…

If you don’t love the Autozam AZ-1, I’m guessing you’ve either never heard of it or you’re a soulless monster who hates fun. But don’t worry, there’s still time for redemption. Tuck into this deep dive on all things Autozam, as explained to Jay Leno by mechanical engineer and Autozam owner Ashley DeLuca.

The “Million Mile Lexus” that’s been floating around the internet for a few years now is actually getting close to its namesake. It’s still running, but this closer inspection of the undercarriage reveals its true jankiness.

Hell Yeah I Painted My Headlights Yellow Hell Yeah I Painted My Headlights Yellow

I’ve wanted yellow fog lights on my truck forever. I finally attempted to realize my dream, screwed up a lot, screwed up some more, and eventually triumphed. Come along and ride on this fantastic voyage with me.

Oh God Someone's Actually Driving a Convertible Wood-Paneled Porsche Cayenne

If you saw the hilariously offensive ragtop woody wagon Porsche Cayenne when it popped up on the internet a few years ago, you’ve probably repressed the memory. Everyone else, please meet the new star of your nightmares! This fucking thing is real and somebody’s actually letting it run free among other cars.

Truck Interrupts Boat Ride to Take a Drink of Ocean Water Truck Interrupts Boat Ride to Take a Drink of Ocean Water

Earlier this week, a big rig riding a barge to Bald Head off the coast of North Carolina got a little over-eager for the exit and slipped off the front. Apparently nobody was injured, so we can giggle at this silly photo courtesy of the U.S. Coast Guard.

Super Fast Desert Trucks Will Make the 2019 King of the Hammers So Much Cooler Super Fast Desert Trucks Will Make the 2019 King of the Hammers So Much Cooler

Ah, the King Of The Hammers. Easily my favorite off-road racing experience to watch. Or at least, the most immersive. Where else can you see high-speed desert action and rock crawling at the same event, from your tailgate? Well, this year KOH week is going to be wilder than ever.

This Pickup Truck Has Secrets

Pickups are great for hauling heaps of whatever, but less optimal for keeping your tools organized. Unless you’ve got a nice cargo-sorting system like this old Ford Super Duty’s sweet disappearing bedside tool box. I mean, it looks amazing, though I think I see why this tech didn’t catch on.

Harley-Davidson Is Still Screwed Harley-Davidson Is Still Screwed

Today Harley-Davidson announced a plan to ride back to relevance on the saddles of some new bike designs and new stores. I don’t think it’s enough. Not even close.

Harley-Davidson Aims to Save Its Bacon With These New Motorcycles Harley-Davidson Aims to Save Its Bacon With These New Motorcycles

Harley-Davidson is in a uniquely desperate situation. It’s struggling to attract new riders, especially younger ones, its financials haven’t been great, and it’s in an ugly tariff war with America’s own president. The Motor Company isn’t giving up just yet though, and today announced a plan to get new blood buying.

The Only Phoenix Yellow 2018 Honda Civic Type R Looks Strikingly Sharp The Only Phoenix Yellow 2018 Honda Civic Type R Looks Strikingly Sharp

The 2018 Honda Civic Type R’s quintessential color is Championship White, but Phoenix Yellow has also been a Type R signature in the past. Remember how good it looked on the Integra Type R? Well, somebody went through the trouble of properly respraying a Civic in factory-correct yellow and it’s actually pretty awesome.

The First 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Reviews Are In: It's an Off-Road Beast But Boring on the Streets

This week the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor was let off the leash in Australia, where it was developed, and the Aussies all seem to be saying the same thing: riotous off-road, a little weak off the line.

The 2019 Ford F-150 Limited Luxury Truck Gets the Raptor's 450 HP Engine The 2019 Ford F-150 Limited Luxury Truck Gets the Raptor's 450 HP Engine

The 2018 Ford F-150 is still available with a good old fashioned V8, but the top engine option is the turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. Even better than that is the High Output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, but you can only get that in the Raptor off-road truck—until 2019, when you’ll be able to get the big booster daddy in the…

Seeing a late-model Toyota Hilux in the U.S.A. is a rare and special occasion. Seeing one here dressed for war is, uh, actually a little disconcerting. But we’ll take the manufacturer license plate to mean this thing comes in peace. For now.

Goodnight, Golf. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen an early R32 on the road and that’s a shame. I love this design enough to settle for a GTI, but the all-wheel drive version is the one to invest in if you can.
