The 2016 Mustang Shelby GT350R looks excellent, sounds evil

The 2016 Shelby GT350R hit the Nürburgring today for testing, marking the car's first appearance in the wild sans the heavy burqas. The GT350 R is to the GT350 as the Laguna Seca was to the Boss 302.

Yes, owning a supercar is batsh*t-crazy expensive

Buying a supercar? That's the "easy" part. It's the ownership experience that illustrates just how deep your pockets need to be. Say you buy a Diablo, for example. It has two $5,000 engine computers. If/when they croak, Lambo is sold out of replacements. See? Fun! » 7/11/14 4:29pm 7/11/14 4:29pm

The new Callaway Corvette has a supercharged Stingray badge

Callaway calls that little badge the "SuperRay". (I'd have called it the "CallaRay", myself.) It's stuck on the fender of the company's new Corvette SC627, and it typifies the sort of subtle detail-sweating we love Reeves Callaway's outfit for. » 7/10/14 11:03am 7/10/14 11:03am

Exploring 6000 miles of abandoned rail lines in a converted pickup

Railnauts—that's a good word for brothers Ivan Puig and Andres Padillas Domene. After Mexico privatized its rail system in 1995, around 6000 miles of track have gone unused. They wanted to explore them, so they built a custom vehicle for the task. » 6/26/14 10:57am 6/26/14 10:57am

Agree. Best part of the movie, hands-down. The passion he has for the circuit radiates off the screen. I saw Truth in 24 at a Detroit Auto Show screening the year it came out. After that particular scene, the entire theater burst into spontaneous applause. » 6/14/14 3:09pm 6/14/14 3:09pm
