    1408298280

    There are a handful of corners whose notoriety arguably matches that of the track of which it is part. Like the Corkscrew at Laguna Seca, the Karussel at the Nürburgring or Eau Rouge at Spa. But it seems that one of them is unfortunately being diluted. The corner is known as Parabolica. ...

    1407801600

    Like the famously bizarre Lamborghini LM002, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 feels like a vehicle that shouldn't even exist. With 544 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged, 5.5-litre V8 routing through all six wheels and five locking differentials, the 6x6 can take on just about anything offroad that ...

    1407787200

    That wild looking vehicle that you see above is called Der Ziesel. It's hardly the first wheelchair designed to go off road, but it has to be one of the coolest.

    First Drive: 2014 Volkswagen Scirocco R
    1407513600

    Germany's automakers seem to get their jollies by watching us scratch our heads. Instead of sticking to traditional automotive bodystyles, they've been deliberately blurring the lines between them and inventing new terminology with which to classify their creations.

    1407362400

    Today, the Tatra brand is best known for its heavy-duty trucks that carry goods all over Europe, but their legacy as a carmaker is a bit less celebrated, especially in the North America. That's a shame, because the Czech company's legacy includes some of the oddest passenger vehicles to ever hit ...
