Inside AMS Performance, the guys behind the 2000hp GT-R

A few weeks ago I got to head into their shop and pick their minds about the business of speed. I could have stayed for hours and hours. Hopefully I'll soon be back, but just read this first. http://news.boldride.com/2014/11/ams-pe... » 11/14/14 2:49pm 11/14/14 2:49pm

The Best Driving Road Ever: In Illinois?

When imagining the perfect driving road, we've been conditioned to picture winding mountainous roads with sheer cliffs that were carved into the side of the Alps or some other place in Europe. The continent entrances us with their unlimited speed areas and their winding roads that seem to go on forever. » 10/28/14 1:38pm 10/28/14 1:38pm

Driving an E63 is pure Bliss

The Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG is a big, heavy, and above all else, hugely powerful sedan meant for blasting down the autobahn at near-impossible speeds. However, with the new Hellcat contending for the same spot as the E63, can the seasoned veteran still compete on the same level as the new kid on the block for a king's… » 10/23/14 1:57pm 10/23/14 1:57pm

I got my Hellcat Article on BoldRide!

The new Dodge Challenger Hellcat has definitely been the darling of the entire automotive community as of late. Its ridiculous power figures and the size and audacity of both the car and PR campaign has plastered it pretty much everywhere you look. » 10/03/14 5:00pm 10/03/14 5:00pm

Rally Fighter + Stunt Driver= BUCKET O' FUN!

A few days ago, I went to a manufacturing and design expo in Chicago showcasing all sorts of new manufacturing techniques and tools on the cutting edge of technology. It was actually pretty cool to check out. However, while as interesting as it was, the reason I was there wasn't because of manufacturing techniques. I… » 9/30/14 11:22am 9/30/14 11:22am

The Local Motors 3D Printed Car is Uber Techy Cool

The current state of automotive manufacturing has been at a standstill for pretty much since the time of Henry Ford and not much in the ways of progress has occurred in terms of methods. We of course have new materials and ways of building those materials, such as carbon fiber, titanium, and structural aluminum, but… » 9/22/14 10:28am 9/22/14 10:28am

2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid:The Oppo Review

A few weeks ago, I had an issue with my driver's side door on my FR-S. Somehow, it slid down the hinges and started rubbing on the body panel. Being that it's still under warranty, I took it into the dealer who fixed it promptly and I was on my way. Fast forward to a few days ago, the problem returned, and I returned… » 8/15/14 10:46am 8/15/14 10:46am

The Hawk: A Ride Through Racing History.

A few weeks ago I was putzing around on Twitter when I saw an exchange between Alex Lloyd from Yahoo, and Sam Smith from Road and Track, talking about how they were going to be at Road America. First off, I had never been to Road America, but everyone I talk to says it is absolutely epic. Secondly, being the new kid… » 8/01/14 8:58am 8/01/14 8:58am

Sittin Waitin Wishin: Mercedes S-Class

When you see a brand new S Class Mercedes, immediately you think of two conversations. The first, "Jeeve's please just run through this crowd of angry ne'er-do-wells, their poorness is upsetting Muffy my darling." And second, "quick we must make it to the bunker right now; I need to call in an airstrike!" So you are… » 7/22/14 3:34pm 7/22/14 3:34pm

Sittin Waitin Wishin: 2014 Dodge Challenger

It seems that all of the news lately has been centered around Dodge's newest Challenger, the Hellcat. And you really can't blame those that have been covering the story there, myself included. The fact that Dodge was able to put 707hp, a 10s quarter mile, and package it all up for just a hair under $60k! That is just… » 7/17/14 9:57am 7/17/14 9:57am
