The Koenigsegg Regera hybrid… I’ve never lusted after, pined for or flat-out longed for a car before like I am for the Koenigsegg Regera hybrid hypercar. The Bugatti Veyron, Hennessey Venom GT, Koenigsegg Agera and Pagani Huyara have, thus far, represented the...

Koenigsegg Agera One:1 Brings 1,341 hp to the Table

There can be only One… er… I mean There can be only One:1.  And, when that only one is the Koenigsegg Agera One:1, one is all one needs.  Phew… that’s a lot one ones.  Now that the witty (yes, I’m going with witty) world play is out of the way, I can fully explain why the Koenigsegg Agera One:1 is quite possibly the most incredible road car ever created.   The Koenigsegg car company is turning 20...

Koenigsegg One:1 – One HP per Kilogram Hypercar

Christian von Koenigsegg, founder of Sweden’s Koenigsegg Automotive AB, is nuts.  Not bad round-up-the-villagers-and-pitchforks nuts, but good makes-his-own-titanium-bolts-for-his-hypercar nuts.  Father of the aptly-named and impossible to spell Koenigsegg, the world’s only “artisanal hypercar” brand, Christian von Koenigsegg makes some of the most extreme, fast and uncompromising cars on the planet.  And, at a...

Tesla and New Jersey: Capitalism, What?

I’m sure everyone has heard that California-based Tesla Motors and their CEO (and my personal hero) Elon Musk is having a bit of trouble selling their cars in certain states.  And, it is complete and utter bullshit.  If I could, I would go out and buy a Tesla Model S and park it right in front of the homes of certain governors with a giant sign that calls them weenie-heads or make some other heretofore un-thought-of intelligent...

Horsepower to Reindeer Power Conversion

Back for the holidays is the TickTickVroom.com exclusive Horsepower to Reindeer Power conversion. Of all the methods of transport that exist, it must be argued that Santa Claus’s sleigh and eight flying reindeer rank among the coolest and fastest out there (He does make it around the world in one night including several stops, after all).  So, with Christmas and Santa’s annual trek coming up on Wednesday, it got me...

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Takes on the Nurburgring [Udpated: Price]

After ten hours and 1,000 miles of Nurburgring track testing, a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 driven by Adam Dean lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in an astonishingly quick 7:37.47.  Yeah, 7:37.47… That’s quick.  And, it was in the wet.  The track was slick, and by the end of the run, it was raining.  I know what you’re thinking… “Isn’t a Chevy Camaro Z28 a muscle car?  And, aren’t muscle cars...

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Jean Bugatti: The Latest Bugatti Legends Car Is a Voiture Noir

About a month ago in Pebble Beach, Bugatti pulled the silks from their first limited edition Veyron of the Bugatti Legends series, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Jean-Pierre Wimille.  That bright blue Veyron paid homage to the 24 Hours of LeMans winning Bugatti test driver of the same name. Yesterday (or was it earlier today? Stupid time zones!), the second Veyron of the Legends series made its first appearance.  This one is...

Hugh Jackman, Top Gear and Audemars Piguet…

Now there’s a title I’d never thought I’d write.  But, there you go.  Confused?  Let me clarify.  Star of the new movie The Wolverine and Les Miserables and all-around good guy Hugh Jackman was the guest Star in a Reasonable Priced Car on yesterday’s episode (S20E4) of Top Gear. For someone who turned off the Vauxhall Astra’s air conditioning on a nearly 100 degree day to eke any hidden horsepower because...
