Rare Duesenberg hot rod visits Jay Leno's Garage

Dave Blake is the owner of one very special car. It's a hot rod built in 1947 by brothers Hal and Bill Ulrich using a 1934 Ford Roadster chassis and a masterpiece of an engine lifted out of a Duesenberg.

Polestar was only spun off from Volvo last October but the performance brand for electric cars already has a plant under construction in China and now a headquarters being readied in Sweden.

There's one magic number though that doesn't get much ink spilled its way, virtual or otherwise. The number is 5,252, and it's the point in the rev range where horsepower and torque will...

2018 Jaguar E-Pace video review

Jaguar’s second crossover may have started life as a Land Rover and a Range Rover. But making it a "Jaaaaag" was job No. 1 for the 2018 Jaguar E-Pace. What’s a Jag if it doesn’t drive well? To that end the list of changes was fairly substantial. The Jaguar E-Pace gets its own suspension bits, including aluminum steering knuckles...

8 years after reveal, New Stratos to finally see limited production

Like something from another dimension, the Lancia Stratos' radical design still blows minds almost five decades after its introduction.
