I Drove A 470 HP Volkswagen Golf R With $18,000 In Mods And Oh My God I Drove A 470 HP Volkswagen Golf R With $18,000 In Mods And Oh My God

Hard charging the APR Stage+ Volkswagen Golf R sucks your skin to the seat and blurs every cell in your brain that’s not dedicated to driving. By the time you catch your breath, the only things sputtering around your noggin will be awe, incredulity and “how is this a freaking Golf?”

The First Episode Of The Grand Tour Season 2 Is Still Scripted As Hell But Off To A Solid Start The First Episode Of The Grand Tour Season 2 Is Still Scripted As Hell But Off To A Solid Start

At last, the first episode of the second season of Amazon’s The Grand Tour aired last night. Armed with the knowledge that it would be the episode in which we see Richard Hammond’s Rimac Concept One crash, it cast a darkly anticipatory atmosphere over the viewing. But, despite a few snags, the episode generally…

What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Volvo XC40? What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Volvo XC40?

Volvo began its renaissance a few years ago, first with the big XC90 SUV and the big S90 sedan. They were followed by the midsize XC60, but the true test of the comeback would be the smaller 2018 Volvo XC40 crossover. But I have seen this entry-level luxury promised land, and it has been good.

The 2018 BMW M5 Makes Peace In The War Between RWD And AWD The 2018 BMW M5 Makes Peace In The War Between RWD And AWD

You won’t be shocked to learn that the 2018 BMW M5 is fast, comfortable and expensive. But the big M sedan’s switch to all-wheel drive has raised some eyebrows. Rest assured, BMW’s done it well. And they’ve done it much differently than you might expect.

Netflix's Wheelman Is An Intriguing Experiment And The Cars Are Great Netflix's Wheelman Is An Intriguing Experiment And The Cars Are Great

If you’ve got some time this Thanksgiving weekend and you’re not interested in participating in the gross consumer-capitalist feeding frenzy that takes place on the following Friday, then maybe give Netflix’s Wheelman a shot. Surely you’re still using your ex’s dad’s wife’s login, right?

Here Is What You Can Expect From A $100 Car Air Freshener Here Is What You Can Expect From A $100 Car Air Freshener

Diptyque, the French scent company best known for its beautiful Instagram-tableau-ready candles that come in scents like Feu de Bois and Feuille de Lavande, released its first car diffuser in September. It joins Diptyque’s line of home diffusers and is the company’s first attempt at finally solving the problem of how…

The Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster And Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster Both Hail From A Golden Age The Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster And Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster Both Hail From A Golden Age

 “You can’t know where you’re going until you know where you’ve been” is the kind of lame, sing-song fortune cookie saying you get from time to time in lieu of an actual fortune. And while on most days, I think it’s merely a hokey way of reminding people that the past is important, when it involves two very special…

What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Kia Stinger? What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Kia Stinger?

Everything is terrible all of the time, but there are moments when rays of sunshine briefly poke out to make our miserable lives a bit more bearable. Case in point: you can soon buy a Kia with rear-wheel drive, a twin-turbo V6 engine, performance optimized for the Nürburgring and a price tag that far undercuts the…

The 2018 Honda Fit Just Works The 2018 Honda Fit Just Works

The 2018 Honda Fit kind of fits everywhere and everything seems to fit in it. Hmm... is that in the brochure? It’s not a particularly arousing car, aesthetically or architecturally, but it is intuitive. It’s efficient, too. And get a load of that high-mounted cupholder!

Meet The Die-Hard Enthusiasts Keeping The Nissan 200SX Dream Alive In A NORAD Bunker Meet The Die-Hard Enthusiasts Keeping The Nissan 200SX Dream Alive In A NORAD Bunker

I receive a ton of emails from readers asking me to drive their cars. It’s a good problem to have. But the truth is, while I’d love to say yes to all of them, a lack of time simply prevents me from driving them all. But when a Jalopnik reader from Rimouski, Québec told me that he and his friends, all of whom are proud…

Need For Speed Payback Tries To Do Too Much At Once Need For Speed Payback Tries To Do Too Much At Once

The Need For Speed Payback plot, as far as I could tell from the trailers and the pressers that Electronic Arts sent me, would have us crash our way through a very Fast and Furious-style above-the-law campaign where cop chases, heists and wanton street racing were common. And if the game was comprised of just that, it…

The 2017 Lexus IS 350 F Sport Gets Points For Existing But Doesn't Take The Trophy The 2017 Lexus IS 350 F Sport Gets Points For Existing But Doesn't Take The Trophy

The Lexus IS used to be so cool. It was the car that gave us Altezza lights, which spread like a virus across every even vaguely performance-oriented car in early 2000s high school parking lots. The IS was the little fun Lexus everyone wanted to emulate. But after driving the latest one, I’m not sure who it’s for…

Playing Forza Motorsport 7 In 4K Spoils The Hell Out Of You Playing Forza Motorsport 7 In 4K Spoils The Hell Out Of You

Much to my dad’s chagrin, I’m one of those people who has trouble telling the difference between 1080p and 4K. This issue came up again and again when I was helping him shop for his new television. And I think the problem was that we were watching clips of movies in the store and not playing video games. Because…

The Subaru WRX STI Still Matters The Subaru WRX STI Still Matters

Maybe it’s because my parents brought me home from the hospital in an ’84 GL wagon (in a snowstorm, of course) or because my first car was the same kind of Legacy that Colin McRae used to destroy rally stages, but I’ve always maintained a fondness for Subarus. At the top of the mountain sits the Subaru WRX STI. But…

What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster? What Do You Want To Know About The 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster?

There are a lot of lovely grand tourers to choose from right now. We’re determined to drive them all and this is our latest one to test: the 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster. What do you want to know about it?

The Lexus 2017 RX 350 F Sport Mails It In  The Lexus 2017 RX 350 F Sport Mails It In 

Lexus RX crossovers are many. Lexus RX crossovers are legion. You can run, but you can’t hide. Because you will see 12 of them crammed in a 10-spot parking lot, we had to see if the latest one was any good. However, it was weirdly disappointing, and not just because it’s a crossover. After driving one for a week I…

Here's How The Aston Martin DB11 V8 Really Compares To The V12 Here's How The Aston Martin DB11 V8 Really Compares To The V12

The 2018 Aston Martin DB11 can be had with a 503 horsepower V8 or a 600 HP V12. We’ve driven both cars back to back, and even if you’re not comparison-shopping super GT cars the tangible differences between the two were actually pretty interesting.

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne Can Do Almost Anything The 2019 Porsche Cayenne Can Do Almost Anything

The Porsche Cayenne is my favorite automotive troll. Porsche fans were horrified at the idea of a Porsche SUV only to discover that the Cayenne is ridiculously capable off-road, on-road, on-track, and even when towing. The all-new 2019 Porsche Cayenne is faster and more powerful than ever, and if you’re still mad…

The 2018 Maserati GranTurismo MC Is A Magnificent Aural Dinosaur Frozen In Time  The 2018 Maserati GranTurismo MC Is A Magnificent Aural Dinosaur Frozen In Time 

I think the reaction most people had when they found out I was driving a 2018 Maserati GranTurismo MC for the weekend was: “Holy hell, they still make that thing?” Yes, in fact, they do and the world is a more glorious place because of it.

Growing Up With The Fiat Everyone Warns You About Growing Up With The Fiat Everyone Warns You About

Before Fiat married Chrysler it was just Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino, but most people probably would have told you it stood for this: “Fix It Again, Tony.” My dad took this as a personal challenge and adopted a 1979 Spider 2000 in the ’90s. The car’s still in the family. Actually, it practically raised me.
