    So now that I have a commute again I had to get a daily driver. Last week I posted a vehicle in the Craiglist find thread, and well one thing led to another and the following day I purchased it. That's right, I went from 5 cylinders and 1 turbo to 10 cylinders and two turbos. Guessed it yet...

    It’s the battle of the V10s, with an Audi R8 taking on the fearsome Lexus LFA. Although the R8 is a monster, the LFA has been called one of the best cars ever by no less an authority than Jeremy Clarkson. The race is a good one, the LFA's 4.8-liter V10 makes 560 hp and 355 lb-ft of torque. At...

    To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the R8 V10, Audi sent one to photographer Fabian Oefner to have its internals captured and turned into an exploded view. The photograph is, on its own, impressive. Equal parts beautiful and surreal, the picture seems to capture a moment in time, not unlike...

    With rumors of the R8 V10 ceding its place in the lineup to an electric supercar , it’s easy to accuse those of us who are a little sad of being outdated dinosaurs who just want things to be like they were in the good old days. But for many of us, the sadness comes not from a fear of the future...
