2014 Jaguar F-Type V8 S…Illegally Loud?

Monday, Dec 02, 2013

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.

’74 Porsche 911 Ride Along

Saturday, Nov 16, 2013

The sounds this car emits are simply other-worldly. The metallic rasp folds over itself with mechanical determination, popping and crackling off throttle like an explosively flatulent school kid. Follow CCC on TWITTER, FACEBOOK, and Instagram (@CCCmanhattan)
