Houston, Texas-based modifiers of obscene horsepower, Hennessey, fill their corporate coffers supercharging Corvette and Cadillac engines to the point of absurdity. But they are best known for their Bugatti-killing Venom hypercar. Hennessey and Bugatti, in fact, have gone back to the lab many times in the past 10 years to squeeze out a bit more power […]

All images by James Elliot Bailey. High performance luxury sedans are hardly a rare beast; performance variants of executive saloons litter Beverly Hills […]


This could possibly be the most perfectly manufactured Because We Love You in the long history of our beloved series. I mean, someone had the wherewithal to have a bikini shoot in zero gravity (genius!), and then handpicked everyone’s favorite blonde bombshell to play floating piñata? There are strokes of genius, like E=MC2, Heisenberg’s Principle […]
