Friday the 13th, GM announced that every Chevrolet Camaro made since 2010 is being recalled for…. An ignition-switch issue. This brings the total number of GM recalls for 2014 up to 38.
Technically, the recall of all the fifth generation Camaro’s isn’t for an issue with the ignition switch itself. What GM is recalling is the Camaro’s key fob. They key fob locks the car, sets the alarm, and so on but an added feature for the Camaro is that the key itself is also integrated into the fob and with the touch of a button, the metal key retracts into the fob or snaps out.
GM stated that the reason more than 500,000 cars are being recalled is because “a drivers knee can bump the key fob and [...]
Ever wonder what it’s like to do 180mph blind? Here’s your chance.

Land speed records. They instill excitement, innovation, and the drive as humanity to surpass the limits of what we as a race believe is possible. It’s the dream of exploration. To explore what isn’t known and to experience discovery, within ourselves and share them with others. Now take that notion and turn it completely upside down. Remove the one safe, comforting aspect of control and throw it out the window, relying solely on another’s shoulders, wisdom, and judgment. Envision that, and one will begin to see the monumental accomplishment and struggle Mike Newman has achieved.
Back in September 2013, Mike Newman set a very unique land speed record. He recorded a 182.12 MPH world record driving a Porsche 911 GT2 whilst blindfolded. Let that [...]
You probably whiz by this car brand every day, get stuck behind, next to, or in front of one, or even park next to one, quite simply the brand is everywhere.

The Huracan, Lamborghini’s successor to its top selling Gallardo, was revealed in March 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show. Who would’ve guessed it would end up helping fight crime, but that’s exactly what happened when Lamborghini decided to donate the Huracan to Italy’s state police. In fact, the new super car is replacing two of its predecessors that were also donated to Italy’s police force in 2004 and 2008.
The donation is to further improve the relationship that Lamborghini has with the Italian police. “We have a strong and fitting relationship with the Italian State Police. The new Lamborghini Huracan stands for Italian super sports car excellence and we are proud to provide it to the Italian State Police to carry out the specialist tasks these police cars undertake,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President [...]
Honda’s S660 concept. S2000 successor? Or the NSX we have been waiting for?
By Brian Brawley
What’s not to love about the Honda S2000? The little bombshell roadster born from Honda was anything but tame. It featured just over 240hp from its scant two liter mill, still holding one of the highest horsepower to liter ratio in a production car. Having a light 2,750 pound curb weight, X-bone frame construction, minimalist driver focused interior, and a screaming 9,000 RPM redline, it gave NSX levels of performance at a more affordable price to the general population. After 10 glorious years, Honda finally closed doors on production with no replacement in sight. With the NSX already dead, it seemed like Honda had closed the door on sports cars in general.
Back in 1995, at the Tokyo Motor Show, Honda [...]
