3 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : Jalopnik

The Audi RS5 Cabriolet is a big, heavy car. In fact, at 4,420 lbs, the RS5 is 60 lbs heavier than my Honda Odyssey Minivan, which combined with this particular shade of "Nardo Gray," has led me to lovingly refer to the car as "The Battleship."

Road Rage :: Why are you so angry?

last monthVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

Why are you so angry? On the face of it, you would think for a nation with a prosperous economy, low unemployment level, decent health care and a generally strong middle-class, people’s anger might be tempered.

2 months agoVehicles / Cars : Jalopnik

I recently had the pleasure of spending two weeks and 4,000 miles on Rally North America in one of the greatest vehicles to ever come out of the US of A: the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.

2 months agoVehicles / Cars : Jalopnik

For those unfamiliar with Summit Point, turn 4 is a fast, downhill, 90+mph right-hander that can be taken flat out in a spec Miata. Nicknamed "The Chute", it's butt puckering in the dry, but get smacked in the face by Mother Nature as you're hitting turn in, and it's terrifying. Read more...
