Bentley Marks 100th Anniversary With $256,000 Book

Self-driving shuttle company May Mobility expanded its operations to include Rhode Island this week.

Lamborghini’s ST-X will likely spawn a super-Urus with the soul of a race car

Lamborghini is taking the Urus racing in 2020. The racing version will be lighter than the production model it's based on, and we expect it will be a good deal quicker. It is also trickling into a performance version of the Urus. The post Lamborghini’s ST-X will likely spawn a super-Urus with the soul of a race car appeared first on Digital Trends.

UK Cops Look to Crack Down on Distracted Drive-Thru Payments, Among Other Things

2020 Mini John Cooper Works Clubman, Countryman Launching With 301 Horsepower

Even though Mini has issued teasers for the new batch of John Cooper Works models for months, we’ve been disinclined to take the bait. It’s not that there’s something wrong with JCW cars; there just wasn’t a lot information to be gleaned from those announcements. We were waiting for the company to confirm the rumor that […] The post 2020 Mini John Cooper Works Clubman, Countryman Launching With 301 Horsepower appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Hyundai Sonata: Right On The Money (Again)

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata strikes an ideal balance between performance and price. A range of interior technology helps drivers stay connected on their daily commute. Two engines are available and both return an EPA-estimated 30 plus mpg combined.  Hyundai debuted the 2020 Sonata earlier this year at the New York International Auto Show. Whatever it brings to the table this time you better get used to it, because you’re going to be seeing a lot of these things around. Hyundai figured out the swee...

A camouflaged BMW K1100 (with an e-bike to match)

Traditional cafe racers are typically designed with restraint high on the agenda. But we’re just as enthused by customs that trade reservedness for loudness—like this BMW K1100 with extremely sharp lines and a reflective livery. This left-field custom is the work of Impuls in Munich, Germany. And as we’ve seen from their previous work, the team of Philipp Wulk and Matthias Pittner don’t care much for tradition. They’ve embraced the K1100’s angular nature rather than trying to smooth every...

Driverless cars are years away, but self-driving forklifts have arrived

For several years, executives of tech and automobile companies have been promising that fully autonomous vehicles will soon become a common sights in streets and roads. But we’re well into 2019, and self-driving cars are still making stupid mistakes. In many ways, the short history of self-driving cars is reminiscent of the early decades of artificial intelligence research. Scientists constantly promised that human-level AI (or artificial general intelligence) was just around the corner. But as ...

2020 Hyundai Elantra Ditches the Manual, Ups the Content

Exactly a year ago, your suddenly fearful author found himself in the market for a new car.

Feeling the Burn: Tesla Issues Software Update Following Rash of Fires

The spontaneous combustion of several Tesla vehicles in recent weeks has forced the automaker into action, issuing over-the-air updates in an attempt to snuff out the problem… and smother another round of bad PR.

Connecticut House of Representatives Votes to Enhance Helmet Law

Adding a Couple More Years Helmet laws are a controversial topic in many states. Every state has its own law about motorcycle helmets, and it’s important to know and follow the law in your particular state. In Connecticut, a new helmet bill just passed the House of Representatives. It would make all riders 21 years old and younger wear a helmet, according to the Hartford Courant. The idea is that if the state can get younger riders to get used to wearing a helmet, then they will continue to wea...

SLIM BOB. Colt Wrangler’s Harley-Davidson Fat Bob

The Colt Wrangler from New Braunfels, Texas, has become well known for building clean and classy looking smaller café racers and electric bikes. So when a customer contacted him a few years ago about customising his Harley-Davidson Dyna Fat Bob, Colt got a little bit worried. “I thought to myself, ‘Does this guy really want to bring this bike to me? Maybe he’s at the wrong shop.’” The customer, Marc Snoddy, didn’t have the wrong shop and was adamant he wanted the former bull rider to build him...

Watch This Very Unscientific Crush Test of Some Motorcycle and Bicycle Helmets

You Might Be Surprised At the Results Crushing a motorcycle helmet with a hydraulic press isn’t the most scientific test of a helmet. That said, it does demonstrate the weak points of a helmet when that helmet is put under extreme amounts of pressure. The team over at the Hydraulic Press Channel on YouTube recently got a bunch of different bicycle and motorcycle helmets to see how much pressure they can withstand. As you might imagine, the higher-dollar, premium motorcycle helmet seems to do be...
