Every now and then there's a special surprise that pops up, and for EA's first day of the year, this R32 Skyline was just that.Read More
Last week, I had the pleasure of photographing the Brampton Assembly Plant for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. What an impeccable facility. The plant is home to more than 3,500 employees, each of whom help build the Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger, Charger, and each of their variants - including the menacing 707 hp Challenger and Charger Hellcats.Read More
Eighteen years removed from his latest and most hopeful works, Franco Scaglione had sunk into obscurity. The automotive world that once exalted his designs had long forgotten about him. He had crafted some of the finest and most notable cars in history and yet, a single, happenstance article in Italy’s AutoCapital in 1993 became a final tribute before he quietly passed from lung cancer at 76...Read More
Even the greats need a reality check from time to time. Porsche had just celebrated its 60th anniversary, but increasing production costs and a high Deutschmark, paired with an ailing U.S. market and increased Japanese imports, had all but decimated the company. From 1986 to 1991, North American annual sales fell from 30,471 cars to just 4,388. Porsche was on the brink of collapse...Read More

Is there any Grand Prix car more beautiful than the Lotus 49? The 1960s are widely regarded as the golden age of motorsport and F1 racing, not least of which the vehicles were blazingly fast, relied on nothing but mechanical grip, and the majority of the drivers on the grid were truly world class.Read More
Much to the chagrin of the former championship championship squad, Red Bull has now forced itself into a corner, becoming a clear subservient in a once-lucrative partnership that it has tried so desperately to distance itself from.Read More
Red Bull confirmed today that it will be running a “TAG” branded Renault engine for the 2016 F1 season, the first and most obvious result of the team’s new partnership with title sponsor, Tag Heuer.Read More

My introduction to the company came early last year after writing the debut feature on the Liberty Walk x Brixton Forged wide body Nissan GT-R that appeared at SEMA 2014. For its latest project, I joined forces with the progressive wheel manufacturer on their newest build, nicknamed #ProjectGoWide.Read More
In the heart of Chiba, Japan lies a shop completely oblivious to the untold eye. Operating as the workplace, and often sleeping quarters of RWB founder, Akira Nakai, its downtrodden exterior blends seamlessly with the environment around it. Hiding the automotive beauty and genius within, from the outside, it is a literal example of its owner's motto, "Rough World."
The list of automotive legends is brief, but it's in this place that Nakai san developed a concept that would put him amongst some of the greatest builders that the world – let alone Japan – will ever see...Read More
...from the Maxima to the 350Z, 370Z, and the monstrous GT-R, each of these cars has always carried progressive styling, technology and driving character and that fits each identity perfectly. Until now, Nissan's SUV/CUV lineup seemed to miss at least one of these critical marks.
Which may be why partaking in this event was all the more important…Read More
BMW’s esteemed tuning partner, Alpina, sure knows what it’s doing. The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé is a powerhouse in and of itself; my experience with it dates back to the Coupé’s infancy as the M6 on the streets around Road Atlanta in 2013, and it’s a car I’ve been waiting to get back in touch with ever since...Read More
Porsche stepped onto new ground when it released the Macan. Said to be the ‘SUV that handles like a sports car,’ the smaller sibling to Porsche’s lone Cayenne SUV intended on bridging the gap between car and truck – not an easy task when you’re rated as highly as the Stuttgart manufacturer is...Read More

The 2015 Mustang has been all the rage since being officially launched in September, 2014. The bolder lines, standard selectable drive modes, all-new 2.3-liter turbocharged inline-four and fully-independent rear suspension have made this the ultimate muscle car for the 21st century. Being a previous Mustang owner and having test driven the 2015 2.3-liter and, more extensively, the GT Performance Package in California late last year, I can easily vouch that this S550 is a Mustang like no other.
Up until the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, I couldn’t imagine sitting in a hotter 2015...Read More
...It marks a changing of the guard at the company long seen as the luxury “boatmaker” of the industry; cars that had creature comforts and were fantastic for bourgeoisie businessmen, but had little to compare when it came to the likes of their sportier, agile European counterparts. The larger CTS coupe paved the way, and now the ATS coupe has refined the sleeker, bolder and sharper representation the Cadillac brand – not only in design, but driving character. It’s also the first Cadillac to carry the company’s revised, sleeker crest...Read More
