Toyota FT-1 Concept: Please Be the Next Supra (Video) [NAIAS]

I have never been so confounded by a car as I am about the Toyota FT-1 Concept just unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.  It is a very, very striking car, but I’m not sure if it’s beautiful or ugly.  Either way, I really hope it becomes the next Toyota Supra.   The Toyota FT-1 Concept, more so than other car that have come before it, perfectly embodies the concept of organic flow.  Just...

2015 Ford F-150: It’s Aluminum (Video)

Ford really did it this time.  I mean an aluminum pickup truck… crazy innovative.  Hey, if it’s been tough enough for years on the Land Rover Range Rover, why shouldn’t the 2015 Ford F-150 be aluminum?  But, aluminum and a 2.7-EcoBoost V6 powerplant?!?!  Talk about a game changer.   Growing up, my family always had a pickup truck, mostly Dodges.  When it came to home improvement or landscaping, my parents were...

2015 Subaru WRX STI: Yep, I was right… I want one. [NAIAS, Video] (UPDATE: Pricing)

As I’m writing this post, I’m watching The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.  I can be said that this is not the greatest of films.  But, there can be no argument that the cars featured are a bit inspirational.  I’m seriously a hairsbreadth from grabbing the keys and being very, very irresponsible.   I recently sold my 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, and since then I’ve been aching for another fun...

2013 Year in Review… Cliche, Isn’t It…

So, not only did we survive December 21st, 2012, we’ve made it all the way through 2013.  HA!  Take that Mayans!  Now that it’s 2014 (2014, weird, isn’t it?), I thought I’d do the most cliché thing blog-ily possible.  This is a TickTickVroom.com 2013 Year in Review post.   2013 was a banner year for TTV… a new, fancy-schmancy website, a bunch of cool road and track tests (sooooo much fun) and some...

2015 BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe: Twice the M Fun [Video]

New BMW M3 time is like Christmas.  It’s when all of the wishes of sublime speed and surefooted performance dreamt in the minds of little petrol-heads everywhere come true.  It makes me all warm and cozy… like sitting in a bolstered leather seat with the butt-warmers turned up.   Only this time, BMW is gracing the world with not just one new M car, but two.  Yep.  Two.  BMW officially introduced (on paper at least) the 2015 BMW...

MB&F HM5 RT: On the Road Again [Video]

Max Büsser doesn’t do normal.  His MB&F Horological Machines continuously push the limits of what we consider a wristwatch with each new model.  The MB&F HM5 RT continues to the limit-pushing, but this time in the direction of automotive design… the Lamborghini Miura, to be precise.   When you look at the MB&F HM5 RT, it’s easy to see the inspiration of the Miura in the louvers on the back of the...

Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4: Yep, It’s the New Baby Lambo [Video]

The brands spankin’ new Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 is here.  And, it’s fast.  Like really fast.  Like 3.2 seconds 0-62 mph (~3.0 seconds 0-60 mph), 202 mph top speed fast.  I guess after the leaked photos from yesterday, Lamborghini needed to accelerate their reveal of the replacement for the venerated-but-long-in-the-tooth Gallardo.   The Lamborghini Gallardo came out in 2003 and, as such, is filled with old tech. ...

Holy Crap! It’s a Drivable LEGO Car! [Video]

When I told my wife I wanted the 3,152-piece LEGO Star Wars Super Star Destroyer for Christmas, she thought I was nuts.  I wonder what she’ll say if I ask for the over 500,000 pieces it takes to build the life-sized, fully drivable, yellow and black LEGO hot-rod that was the brain-child of Steve Sammartine and Raul Oaida. Billed the Super Awesome Micro Project, the LEGO car was built in Romania and shipped to Melbourne...

2015 Ford Mustang: 50 Years in the Making [Video]

Now with fully independent rear suspension!  But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.  It’s been 50 years since the first Ford Mustang.  That’s a long time.  It’s also been eight years since the introduction of the fifth generation Mustang in 2005, albeit with several facelifts between then and now.  So, it was definitely time for the sixth generation of the Ford Mustang to bow.  And, as the sixth iteration of America’s favorite...

2014 Porsche Macan Finally Revealed [Los Angeles Auto Show]

On this site, I try really, really hard not to be incredibly cheesy.  It’s an uphill battle, I know, one I frequently lose in spectacular fashion.  But, when talking about the 2014 Porsche Macan that just debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show, I won’t even try.  Because, (true to cheesy form) I keep imagining Porsche execs in Stuttgart working on the Macan over the past several years chanting: “I think Macan, I think...
