Lamborghini Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae: The Ultimate Sendoff For The Great V12 Aventador?

If you were to judge by the name alone, Lamborghini Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae, you’d think this is it; this will be the last Aventador we see. Ultimate, being the Italian word for “ultimate” or “final,” as in “this is the ultimate lap of the race.” You’d be right because after this, nada! The Lamborghini Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae represents the final production run of the car’s now-iconic V12 internal combustion engine. The Final Countdown “The Aventador LP 780-4 denotes the final, pu...

2022 BMW 2 Series Coupe: More Car But Same Great Rear-Wheel Drive Thrills

BMW had us worried when it shoehorned a front-wheel drivetrain in its 2-Series Gran Coupe (we’re talking about the four-door version). But we’re glad the 2022 BMW 2 Series Coupe (yes, a proper coupe with two doors) is sticking to its predecessor’s proven rear-wheel drive formula. The first-gen 2 Series Coupe released in 2014 is not a bad car – far from it, actually – but the cabin is too snug for comfy driving. In a world where a new Honda Civic is the same size as a fifth-gen Accord, the 202...

Best & Worst States for Teen Drivers (2021)

For the average teenager, a driver’s license means a newfound sense of independence with the added bonus for parents of no longer having to be the family chauffeur. However, teenage drivers remain the demographic most at risk on the road. Drivers ages 16 to 19 are up to three times more likely to be involved in a fatal accident than anyone older than 20. A recent study from WalletHub examined the risks for teenage drivers on a state-by-state basis. Overall, WalletHub researchers studied 23 k...

Your Next Bentley May Have “Adaptive Music” (But It’s Not As Cool As It Sounds)

The short version here is that Bentley (second only to Rolls Royce in its Britishness) has cooked up a system that allows its cars to “compose a soundtrack based upon drivers’ inputs and driving style.” Basically, the vehicle takes various inputs from the driver and the road and then makes an instrumental composition on the fly to enhance the “emotional experience” of every drive. But before we delve into why this will most likely be bland, boring, and monotonous “soundscapes” of a quasi-new age...

2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT: From The Nürburgring With Love

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT is arriving with a literal bang! Fresh from breaking the Nürburgring Nordschleife lap record for production SUVs in June 2021, Porsche’s latest creation ran the entire 20.832-kilometer German proving ground in a mind-boggling 7:38.925. That’s around four seconds faster than the equally astonishing Audi RS Q8, which ran the same course in 7:42.253 back in 2019. Yes, Nürburgring speed records are a bit overrated, but Porsche is trying to prove a point. You see,...

You Won’t Believe This Lamborghini Sián Made Entirely From LEGOs!

When I was a kid, I’d often look at Hot Wheels or Matchbox cars or the LEGO creations I’d make and think, “It’d be SO cool to crawl inside there and drive away!” Obviously, I wasn’t the only one to think that cause it’s pretty obvious that a bunch of people had the same idea when it came to this life-size Sián. Automobili Lamborghini, in collaboration with the LEGO Group, has built a life-size replica of the Sián FKP 37, but I can’t find anything about it actually being drivable (sadly). Now tha...
