    1387119600

    Raising taxes in any democratic country is tricky business, but there are certain groups on which it's easier to raise taxes than others. Smokers, for example, have a hard time making an argument against raising taxes on cigarettes. As far as the working class is concerned, raising taxes on the ...

    1359495000

    While this may not be the first (or last) time we see a "What's Faster" battle take place between a powerful car and super-quick motorcycle, this video proves some cars do stand a chance against these lighter and often quicker sport bikes.

    1354737420

    We get giddy like school boys when we have to commute anywhere in Germany. Why? Well, on the Autobahn, we get to go all out and know that the drivers around us understand the protocol of proper traffic flow.

    Report: Texas "Autobahn" toll road to get 85 mph (137 km/h) speed limit?
    1339101000

    Oh, Montana, how we miss your speed-limitless ways of the mid-1990s. We were carefree and young then, driving a 10-year-old Chevrolet that in no way, shape, or form was designed to travel at its top speed for hours on end.

    Most cars on the road today are designed with aerodynamics in mind, allowing each to scythe through the air like a dart while creating as little turbulence as possible - to a point, anyway - while also boasting sleek profiles, nice lines and a visceral aura of "let's roll." But put aerodynamics ...

    1316988180

    By all accounts, the 2012 BMW M5 is nothing short of a mechanical miracle. With two fewer cylinders than the previous generation, the big bruiser manages to retain the acceleration and handling prowess that M buyers have come to expect. But where exactly can you use the full breadth of the ...
