Nissan Bladeglider Concept Revealed Prior to Tokyo Debut

The Nissan Bladeglider Concept is exactly the car every kid growing up in the 1990s hoped the future would bring.  Sharing the same wide rear and very narrow front track set-up as the revolutionary Nissan Delta Wing racer that made waves in the Le Mans Series this year, the Bladeglider is the first truly reinvented car in a long, long time. Set to debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in a few weeks, the Nissan Bladeglider Concept is a...

Caterham Bikes: Caterham Goes Two-Wheeling

Caterham makes some of the most nimble cars on the planet.  Quick in the corners with great acceleration, they may be as close to a four-wheel motorcycle as you can get.  So, I have high hopes the new Caterham Bikes motorcycle division the brand recently announced will be just as awesome. Caterham revealed prototypes from their new line of motorcycles and e-bikes at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan this week.  Run by Al-Ishsal Ishak...

DRIVEN: 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray on the Track – Road Test Review

Ostensibly, I started TickTickVroom out of a deep appreciation for cars and watches.  But, while I may not have realized the truth of this statement at the outset, my true motivation for creating this site probably was to drive the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray… and to write this post.  I guess I should explain.   Yes, I know there are faster, more powerful cars out there.  But, none of them are so profoundly rooted in...

Magnum MK5: Canada’s Street-Legal Track Car [Pricing]

There is nothing polite about Canada’s new track-day car, the Magnum MK5.  In a realm dominated by names like Ariel, Caterham, and Radical, Magnum is elbowing their way in to make their mark in a market with very, very selective customers.   Magnum has made a name for themselves making open-wheel formula racers for drives like Gilles Villeneuve, so they certainly know how to make a car that goes fast.  They put all of that...

Chopard Mille Miglia Zagato Chronograph [Pricing]

Zagato of Milan exists in a pantheon of royalty in the world of car design.  Their custom coachwork stands at the pinnacle of automotive beauty and extreme design.  I mean, just look at the Aston Martin DBS Coupé Zagato Centennial and the DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial.  So, when I learned that Chopard would be teaming with Zagato to create two 500-piece limited editions of their Mille Miglia Chronograph, I was excited, to say the...

Mopar SEMA 2013: Auburn Hills’ Vegas Lineup

SEMA stands for Specialty Equipment Market Association.  That means aftermarket parts and tuning.  And, perhaps, there is no name more synonymous with tuning and aftermarket mods than Mopar.  So, it stands to logic that Mopar and the Chrysler group would have some significant offerings for the Las Vegas show. The 2013 Mopar SEMA display consists of 20 modified cars, trucks and SUVs, not the least of which are the surfer-friendly Ram...

Porsche Panamera Turbo S: A Peak Before Its Tokyo Debut

Ever since is debut at the 13th Auto Shanghai International Automobile Show in April 2009, the Porsche Panamera has been one of the most controvercial cars Stuttgart has ever put out, and they made the Porsche 914 AND the Porsche Cayenne.  Some people think it is the ugliest car this side of the Pontiac Aztec.  Others see the Porsche Panamera as a thing of true beauty.  But, love it or hate it, no one can deny its performance,...

Rolls-Royce Chicane Phantom Coupe Honors Goodwood

The words Rolls-Royce and Chicane aren’t ones you often hear together.  Rolls-Royce and Country Club Lane, maybe.  Not Chicane.  But, a Roller dealership in Dubai disagrees and commissioned a one-off Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé from the Rolls-Royce Bespoke division inspired by the Goodwood Motor Circuit.  Called the Rolls-Royce Chicane Phantom Coupé, this one-of-a-kind car is a motorsport-inspired and slightly badass — can I...

Chevrolet SEMA Concepts: Bowtie Goes Tuner

Chevrolet already spilled the beans about their Silverado Black Ops and Volunteer Firefighter concepts for SEMA this year.  Those will definitely catch the eyes of the off-road and are-you-seriously-going-to-drive-that-on-the-road-it’ll-eat-a-Smart-Car truck crowd.  But, what is the Bowtie company planning for the tuner crowd, the people more interested in offerings like Hyundai’s Fox Marketing Veloster Turbo?  How about...

2015 Audi A3 Sedan Starts at $29,900 [Update, Video]

Sometime next year, we (and by “we” I mean the U.S.) will get our hands on the all-new 2015 Audi A3 Sedan (that happened to have already debuted in Europe about a year ago), and it will be priced from $29,900 (plus an $895 destination fee).  That starting price happens to be the same as the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class and about two grand shy of the BMW 2 Series, the A3’s rivals in the war of sporty little luxury German...
