CCC Fleet Addition: 2011 Subaru STI

Sunday, Dec 15, 2013

To drive tuned usually means to drive compromised…In the quest of speed, we often give up on comforts. Deleted, heavy sound systems, spine-shattering suspension set-ups, lopey idling and a back seat full of roll-cage-scaffolding always makes even the quickest trip to the market a chore. But this? Never have we driven something that was so hard-core, but

2014 Jaguar F-Type V8 S…Illegally Loud?

Monday, Dec 02, 2013

Now, I’m not saying this is a bad thing, (I love loud cars) but the ’14 F-Type takes “from-the-factory” exhaust tuning to a new level. At least Aston Martin hides the loud a little bit, and makes you pull a fuse to get the full glory. I’ve got friends who live in a part Pennsylvania where you

Driving & Talking: 2014 Corvette Stingray (First Drive)

Monday, Nov 18, 2013

Ethan and I took a (very) quick spin in the new Stingray last week. Between driving down the bumpiest road in Manhattan, and getting grilled by cops left and right, we managed to say a few words about this new Corvette. It’s really, really good.

CCC / GM First Drive Recap

Monday, Nov 11, 2013

General Motors has been working hard over the last decade to shed the stigma of the carpocalypse. As history has proven time and time again, some of the best innovations come when you hit rock bottom, and GM is no exception. Fighting their way back from bankruptcy, GM has come out lean and on their

Scion FR-S Frugality Report

Friday, Oct 18, 2013

So as you may have guessed, a Scion FR-S gets a few more miles out of each gallon than a Mercedes SLS AMG. But how many more miles? This will surprise you… I know I may seem like a broken record spouting about why lower horsepower, and exceptional handling are two key ingredients to motoring nirvana; but this

What Three Japanese Sports Cars Should You Buy Now?

Thursday, Oct 10, 2013

It started as a thought exercise: If you could buy three (and only three) iconic but relatively accessible Japanese sports cars from the 1990s and 2000s, what would they be? We figure that was at least worth yammering on about for 30 minutes or so. This week on AFTER/DRIVE, /DRIVE’s podcast-like talking-cars show, Mike and Zac

Z4M Asphalt Scalpel

Tuesday, Oct 01, 2013

Some of you may remember a different Z4MI posted a few weeks ago, which tiptoed a thin line between track tool and street mule. The pictured Z4M takes the track treatment to the next level, with a big dose of precision. A protruding carbon fiber front lip is complemented at the rear by this soaring wing.

M3 Duality: Which Would You Choose?

Saturday, Sep 28, 2013

One of our members picked up the Gallardo Spyder yesterday and left his very clean, mostly stock, 80k mile E30 M3 in the garage for the weekend. I couldn’t help but line our E30 up next to it and make some comparisons. Follow CCC on TWITTER, FACEBOOK, and Instagram (@CCCmanhattan)
