    There was a time. A time when an electric clock felt noteworthy and a parcel tray attached to the trunk by a string felt like the height of technology. And it was a good time because it produced the Scirocco. This utterly English review from Tony Bastable for the Thames TV’s Drive-in features...

    What happens when an Up! GTI, a Polo GTI, a Golf GTI, and a Golf GTI Clubsport S go head to head? This may seem like a foregone conclusion.  The biggest one, making the most horsepower--the Clubsport S--should always win. But if you have a DSG going up against someone with bad reaction times in...

    The new RS5 is quite something. But if you’re in the mood for a little more, there’s ABT, the 100-year-old tuning house that’s been making Audis crazier for years. Unfortunately, few people will ever get to see this particular ABT RS5-R, because only 50 have been made. Fortunately, Auditography...

    Okayokayokayokay, so I know that we’re all experts in everything, here on the internet, but I actually had no idea why big brakes squeal. It’s not really a big problem in my life, so I tend not to think about it too much, but I have sometimes wondered why racecar brakes make horrible noises...

    This might be the fastest Audi S2 you'll ever see. It's very loud, and it's very fast. And by the look of it, it's very hard to drive. Plus it runs 197 mph in the standing kilometer. The S2 was based on the Audi Coupe and showed up in 1990. It came with a 2.2L turbo-five that made 217 hp. But...

    You don't have to be an accountant to see that buying a Phaeton would be a colossally stupid decision. It’s a big, expensive to fix, unreliable, Passat clone with luxuries that are more than a decade out of date. But I defy you to watch this video and look at the prices for one, and not feel the...

    Lamborghini may be known for its hardcore hypercars, but it actually has a rich history full of grand tourers, 2+2s, and more. Okay, so that may not be the widest range of cars--I’ve yet to hear about the four-door sedan or the pickup that Lamborghini made way back when--but the Espada is at...

    Hagerty’s excellent “Redline Rebuild” series has been shooting timelapses of engine rebuilds and posting the result to YouTube for a while now and the weirdly calming process of seeing a dirty engine become clean is as hypnotizing as it is engaging. After six episodes covering everything from...

    We’ve known for a long time that the GTI is just about the most useable sports car out there. So long, in fact, that generations of enthusiasts have been basking in its glory. Andrew Tucker, from the UK, says that the memories of being a little kid hanging out in his dad’s GTI are as big a part...

    The ravages of time don’t just affect humans. Engines, too, over time lose power as wear and tear take their toll. Fortunately, like people, engines can be fixed and some of the damage can be prevented. Engineering Explained’s Jason Fenske goes over the major factors that lead to power loss...

    They say that film is the art of visual storytelling. Like Mr. Bean, if a film is good, the words shouldn’t really matter. Even if you don’t speak (what is that, Dutch?) you can pretty much figure out what’s going on. This very short Golf wasn’t quite short enough to earn itself a record for...

    Lamborghini, ostensibly, is a track focused, hard driving, supercar designed to go fast around a three-dimensional track. Why then are Lamborghinis so popular in Miami, a city (like most) where nearly none of that matters? Motor Trend investigates:

    When Lamborghini first reported its Huracan Performante’s lap time at the Nurburgring, other automakers pretty much all agreed that it was impossible. The Huracan beat a Porsche that cost several times more and made hundreds of hp more around the green hell. So what was the secret? According...

    We’ve all dreamed of finding a rare or ridiculous car in a barn, but the truth is that even you find one, it takes a certain kind of person to do the right thing with it. It takes a person like Jeff, who found a ’69 Miura rotting away in a garage and decided not to restore it. Jeff found this...

    There’s nothing more tantalizing and frustrating than a foreign market car. Cars that can only be bought overseas are often weird, usually interesting, and always inspire curiosity because they reflect a different car culture with different needs. Even economy cars that should be painfully dull...

    Watches and motorsport have been associated with each other for some time. The need to record lap and race times accurately ensures that good timekeeping equipment will always be important to the hobby. What better way, then, to celebrate the GTI’s 40 th anniversary than with this “40 Years of...

    Given the subject matter of the new Disk_O chronograph, you'd think it would have come from a manufacturer such as Brembo given its casing made to look like a cross-drilled brake rotor complete with accenting caliper. Nope. Instead the piece comes from Pirelli as one of the latest entrants in...
