Drawing A Lotus F1 Car For A Magazine Article Isn't As Simple As It Sounds

Drawing A Lotus F1 Car For A Magazine Article Isn't As Simple As It Sounds

The Lotus 72 was a masterpiece of a car. Lotus employed this chassis, albeit with year-on-year updates, for five full seasons of Formula One from 1970 to 1975. It was and remains such a stunning beauty of engineering prowess, and the technical drawing rendered by Giorgio Piola for Italian language Autosprint Magazine is no less impressive. Piola himself calls this the most important drawing...

Imaginary Car From An Imaginary Country: The Svindle Collective Truth Bag Cars

While almost every major economic system throughout history has at one point or another been accused of being corrupt or run by crooks, a giant scam, or all of that, there’s only one country in the world that truly embraced people’s seemingly inherent predilection to crime: the Svindle Collective. The Svindle Collective is the only country in history to base an economic system on graft. The...

Racing Godfather, Tuskegee Airman And All-Around American Hero Jim Barbour Dies At 94

On Tuesday morning, when a familiar number came up on my phone, I just knew it. It was Pat Barbour, the wife of a friend I first wrote about in 2018, and the pitch of her voice was a few notes lower than usual.

EDITOR’S NOTE: A remarkable man Jalopnik

wrote about in 2018, Jim Barbour, died on Monday at his home in Wesley Chapel, Florida. David Obuchowski came to know Jim well, and recalls his...

Countersteer Your true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

There are many routes to take if you’re going coast-to-coast in the U.S. You can take I-80 if you hate yourself. You can take Route 50 if you’ve never turned off the Golden Oldies station in your life. You can even route yourself over the Great Lakes if, actually,

Ford Teases Front End Of The Upcoming 2023 Electric F-150
Truck Yeah The trucks are good!

When Ford was excitedly telling everyone about

their plans for the electric F-150 and the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center they’re building on Thursday, they showed a teaser image of the new EV F-150's face, giving us a pretty good general idea of what it’ll look like. And it seems the key element here is a glowing white unibrow.

Ford Spotted Testing A Manual Bronco With Sasquatch Package: Report

Ford Spotted Testing A Manual Bronco With Sasquatch Package: Report

Ford promised to listen to Bronco customers calling for its seven-speed manual transmission to be paired with the Sasquatch off-road package. One publication thinks Ford is doing just that, and the evidence is intriguing.

Ford Bronco fever swept the nation two months ago as the long-awaited SUV made its multimedia debut to the masses. The hype seemed justified, but there was one problem: Ford...

I Counted Every Toyota RAV4 I Saw In A Day And It Broke My Brain

I Counted Every Toyota RAV4 I Saw In A Day And It Broke My Brain

Over the course of a 1,100-mile road trip, we could have counted anything. Vultures. Thunderclouds. Trees. Instead, we tallied Toyota RAV4s, and 436 midsize SUVs later my brain is wallpaper paste.

It was hard, actually. Harder than I thought. My eyes have been a little bloodshot these past few days, and I have a sneaking suspicion it’s from eyeballing oncoming traffic doing 75 trying to pick...

The 2021 Mahindra Roxor Looks Like A Happy Alien

Shortly after Indian automaker Mahindra introduced its off-road-only side-by-side, the Roxor,

Jeep filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission . Jeep feels that the Roxor’s CJ-5-inspired looks infringe upon Jeep’s trademarks, so the FCA brand pushed to stop sales of the Mahindra. Mahindra responded by redesigning the Roxor, and now it appears that a further redesign is...

The 2021 Mazda CX-30 Will Get Turbo Too

The 2021 Mazda CX-30 Will Get Turbo Too

The 2021 Mazda CX-30 will get a 2.5-liter inline four cylinder turbocharged engine as an option, the company said Thursday. That’s the same 250-horsepower engine also seen in the CX-9, CX-5, and the Mazda 6, and is probably enough power to turn a few heads in a CX-30.

To get the full power Mazda says you have to use premium gas, otherwise the output diminishes to 227 horsepower, but that’s...

Another Idiot Caught Sleeping At The Wheel Of A Tesla On Autopilot, This One Speeding

Another Idiot Caught Sleeping At The Wheel Of A Tesla On Autopilot, This One Speeding

I really should just make a find-and-replace template for this article, because we’ve had to write about

idiots sleeping at the wheels of their Teslas driving on Autopilot so many times now. If these are the ones getting reported, it’s very likely this happens far more often. That, I suppose, is why we should cover all of these: because this is stupid and dangerous, and will get people...

The Volkswagen Taos And The Most Legendary Repair Manual Ever Written

The Volkswagen Taos And The Most Legendary Repair Manual Ever Written

The

new compact Volkswagen SUV slated for North America will be called Taos, the company said today. Initially, I thought it was more name alphabet soup from the automaker but it turns out the name has roots in the most legendary VW repair guide ever written.

The Taos will slot in under the Tiguan and will compete with the Hyundai Konas and Honda HR-Vs of the world. VW said today it would...
