Moto Koure MK I: Modern Watchmaking Meets Classic Racing Autstralian Micro-Brand Moto Koure Shows What Car-Inspired Watches Should Look Like.

Autstralian Micro-Brand Moto Koure Shows What Car-Inspired Watches Should Look Like with Their MK I. You don’t often think of Australia as a fertile ground for new watch brands, or for watches in general, come to think of it. Cars, yes. Watches, no. But, shiny new watchmaker, Moto Koure, is looking to change that. Oh, and did I mention their watches are inspired by 1960s and 1970s cars? Swoon. When I say that Justin Khoury founded...

LaForza: An SUV That Really Wants to Be a Ferrari

Last weekend was Barrett-Jackson’s annual auto auction in Palm Beach, Florida.  If you’ve never gone to a Barrett-Jackson auction, let me tell you, it’s quite a spectacle.  The stars of the show were without a doubt the Custom 2013 Ford Mustang Fastback from Need for Speed ($300,00), the first 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 roll off the production line ($1,000,000), the first 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 ($500,000) and 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...

McLaren 650S to make US debut during the 2014 New York Auto Show] I know one thing for sure.  McLaren makes a kick-ass car.  The MP4-12C is probably the best car available under $300,000.  And, the McLaren P1 is nothing short of extraordinary, both in terms of performance and styling.  But, now… now there’s another...

2015 Subaru WRX STI: Leaked Photos of My Next Car (Hopefully) [UPDATE]

As a car and watch blogger (and moderate-t0-severely obsessed individual) I love leaked photos.  LOVE THEM.  There’s just something special about seeing a car before I’m supposed to.  Most recently the automotive world was graced with leaked photos of the Lamborghini Huracan ahead of its official unveiling.   And now, today, thanks to the Mexican automotive blog Terra Autos, I am happy to present leaked photos of the...

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...

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...

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...
