Video: Meet the 400HP, Tire-punishing, Turbo BMW E30 - /TUNED

As nice as it is to visit a reputable tuning company such as a Titan Motorsports or Heffner and drive their creations, I'm never really surprised by them. Everyone says their cars are fast as hell and run great, and then when they do, it's exactly what I expect. » 12/09/13 3:32pm 12/09/13 3:32pm

Video: A High-Speed Run Across the Desert in a Lamborghini Aventador…

On this episode of /Tuned, I don't drive a modified car at all. Nope, I know, blasphemy is upon us, since I didn't show up to some random dude's house to drive his overpowered death trap this week, opting instead for a 700 mile round trip to SEMA in the most expensive press car I've ever spent unsupervised time with.… » 12/03/13 12:46pm 12/03/13 12:46pm

Video: This Twin-Turbo Subaru Legacy is Subtlety Done Right

Last season, there was an overwhelming push to get some full-on JDM cars on the show this season. Since actually going to Japan is out of our budget (... or is it?) we put out the word, and Dave Brown, owner of Fast of West Chester responded. Mr. Brown has spent the last two years turning his otherwise pedestrian… » 11/18/13 3:28pm 11/18/13 3:28pm

Video: /TUNED Returns With a Pair of Swapped Subies!

We know, we know. Tuned has been gone for too long. But fear not, we’re back for an extended 16-episode run, and we’re starting it off with one of our favorite budget tuner projects: the Subaru R-STi. See, it all started because we didn’t get the Subaru WRX here in the US until 2001, where other countries were… » 10/14/13 2:42pm 10/14/13 2:42pm

What's the Best Idea for a Custom Painted Helmet? (W/ Video)

Look at that hair. Donald Trump, for all his faults (which are many) has contributed one of the more iconic haircuts in recent history. And while his perfectly coiffed hair may have defined his signature look way back in the 80's, I much prefer the more modern version of Trump's mop. As he ages, his hair is getting… » 6/25/13 11:43am 6/25/13 11:43am

Inside the Morgan Motor Company (Mega Gallery)

Morgan is one of the strange anomalies of the automotive world. For one, it doesn't seem like they should exist at all. How many car manufacturers out there are as small as Morgan (2012 was a record year for production at around 1,500 cars over five models), haven't been swallowed up by a larger manufacturer, and… » 6/05/13 11:29am 6/05/13 11:29am

Video: Brand new Porsche Cayman vs Beater Tuned Audi S4

I spent the last two weeks bombing around Europe experiencing car culture, a big part of which was cruising the UK B-Roads (in RHD cars for the first time) with Chris Harris. Originally, we had planned to do a "tuned vs. stock" kind of thing with a new Porsche Cayman and a boosted Subaru BRZ, but as tends to happen… » 6/04/13 11:20am 6/04/13 11:20am

Here's What It's Like To Drive a 430-hp Subaru BRZ

We love the Scion FRS and Subaru BRZ. They are affordable, practical, and you can drive them at 10/10ths basically all the time. But what happens to a BRZ when you add enough boost to more than double the horsepower and more than triple the torque output? We grabbed the keys to Crawford Performance's BRZ and found out. » 5/13/13 3:34pm 5/13/13 3:34pm

Here's How /DRIVE Shoots Car Videos

/DRIVE gets a lot of questions about how we shoot our car videos. Here's a quick answer: Down and dirty and slightly sketchy, with a few choice bits of equipment. After all, we're not Ron Howard. » 5/10/13 2:30pm 5/10/13 2:30pm
