The quantum crushing engineers over at AMG have summited many a nerd apex. They’ve obliterated previously held thresholds time and again since the company’s formation in 1967, and have continued to do so throughout their partial sale to Mercedes-Benz in 1990 and their eventual complete absorption under the Daimler AG umbrella in 2005. And with [...]

The official images of the Apollo replacement hit the web

Although Gumpert filed for bankruptcy this past September, it looks like the German supercar maker is going to survive at least temporarily, as they’re rumored to debut the production version of the Tornante at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2013.

The Beatles' White Album + Jay-Z’s Black Album, reboosted

The only bummer about 2004′s mashup masterpiece The Grey Album was the audio quality. Taking sliced up music from The Beatles’ peerless White Album and layering acapellas from Jay-Z’s legendary farewell (yeah right) LP The Black Album, Danger Mouse unknowingly crafted perhaps the best known oeuvre in the mashup genre. While Danger Mouse was at the time only [...]

I got the vinyl — it’s crisp and warm at the same time like sitting by a fire in a field of snow. It’s September 11, 2012, [...]

Turbines, recycled wood from Venice canals & projection artwork: quite possibly the most innovative luxury EV ever

Sure it’s very early in the Auto Show season, but it would be hard to beat Pininfarina’s brilliant Cambiano concept. Moreso than most concept vehicles, the Cambiano is Pininfarina’s authoritative statement of purpose. One of the preeminent design houses on the planet, Carozzeria Pininfarina has crafted the Cambiano as a very definition of what it [...]


Boston producer Will C established himself first as a talented engineer, mastering hundreds of releases from hip hop artists such as MF DOOM, The Pharcyde and Madlib to jazz, soul and R&B greats like Tom Scott, George Benson and Patrick Adams. He now turns his attention to an often-times tragically slept on American band, The [...]

Aiming to make the 'Made In England' label into a truthful concept

The most iconic car in Jaguar’s illustrious history — and arguably the greatest GT of all time — the E-Type celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. And while Jag’s current XK (which we testdrove HERE) is an appropriate ode to that original E-Type, there certainly is room for a more loyal homage. It is in [...]
