Lamborghini Sián Roadster: Only 19 Will Be Made (But It’s a Perfect 10)

The Lamborghini Sián Roadster is one of those poster-worthy cars. When I was a kid, I had a big poster of a Lamborghini Countach on my wall. We used to talk about that car all the time at school and during recess. Today, I could see youngsters doing the same with the Sián Roadster, given how futuristic it looks. In the late 80s, the Countach looked like a space-age car to my friends and me. “The Sián Roadster encapsulates the spirit of Lamborghini,” says Stefano Domenicali, Automobili Lamborg...

What do Mechanics Look for When Performing a Vehicle Inspection?

One of the big pains in the neck about owning a car is having to re-register each and every year (depending on your state, you’ll renew either annually or biennially through the state’s Registry of Motor Vehicles). A big part of that is taking your car in for a mandatory vehicle inspection. Although not required in every state, it’s important. Its purpose isn’t just another hoop to jump through. It’s intended to be a way for the DMV to ensure that your car is safe to be on the road. If you’re i...

Don't Keep Wipes in Your Car

As a suburban mom, my car is my home base. (Or it was in pre-pandemic times, anyway.) If there was a tiny chance I might need something someday while I was out and about, it lived in the car. Sunscreen? Check. Diapers? A whole case, in the trunk. Wipes? Probably a couple packages. There’s a problem with that last one,…Read more...

Ducati has a new Multistrada 950 S in GP White

Taking a Cue from MotoGP Not long ago I wrote about the new Panigale V2 receiving its White Rosso livery. Now Ducati is offering a special white color for the Multistrada 950 S. The bike will be available with a new GP White color scheme in 2021, according to DriveMags. The color scheme is different than the one on the Panigale V2, but it’s still MotoGP-inspired. The color scheme is mostly made up of white and grey paint. However, there are some red accents that really help the motorcycle’s fea...
