I put McLaren's new 'practical' $240,000 supercar to the test at Costco. It went way better than expected.

I was floored, kids. Kristen Lee/Business Insider The 2020 GT is the supposedly roomy McLaren, with extra space for luggage. It actually does have more cargo volume than the rear trunk of a Toyota Camry. To put it to the test, I took the GT to Costco and filled it up with stuff. The whole thing went shockingly well. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. It almost sounds like a setup to a joke, this stunt that I pulled a few weeks ago. "A girl, her dad, and a McLaren all go to...

Uber has its highest close since IPO

Uber shares surged 7.38% to close at $48.18 following news that a vaccine candidate is 90% effective at preventing COVID-19, and could start coming to market in a matter of months. The announcement by drugmakers Pfizer and BioNTech sparked widespread optimism and helped boost shares across industries that have been weakened by the COVID-19 pandemic, including services like ride-hailing. Uber’s share pop is notable beyond this one-day vaccine-news boost. This is the highest close for Uber sinc...

VIDEO: Harley-Davidson LiveWire Hits The Drag Strip

Silence at the Drag Strip Many riders summarize their first EV motorcycle riding experience with something along the lines of “it’s like a slingshot” or, “the power is instant and never-ending”. This makes them a deadly track weapon (take MotoE – electric motorcycle circuit racing – for example) due to the wickedly high levels of torque giving you the ability to return to full speed quickly after exiting a corner. Do you know what else is like a slingshot? Drag racing; it is an important and hi...

Mazdaspeed Isn’t Coming Back, Which Might Be Okay

We’ve spent the last few years wondering how Mazda’s upmarket push would impact its focus on performance.

Junkyard Find: 1974 Mercury Montego MX Brougham 4-Door Pillared Hardtop

For the connoisseur of Malaise Era Broughams, the Mercury Montego MX Brougham checks all the boxes: long hood, “stitches” molded into plastic door panels, unapologetically phony “wood” dashboard trim, low-compression smog V8, and obvious kinship with a much cheaper corporate twin.
