2016 Ford Focus RS to Hit US Shores with AWD 3rd Gen Ford Focus RS Brings Serious Competition for Subaru WRX STI after Death of the Evo

3rd Generation Ford Focus RS Brings Serious Competition for the Subaru WRX STI after Death of the Evo. 2016 Ford Focus RS is officially coming to U.S. shores to drive American highways and byways with a turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder and all-wheel-drive. Finally, we get a version of the baddest Ford Focus. I guess the third version is the charm. By that I mean there have already been two versions of the Focus RS in Europe.  ...

Richard Mille RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur My Favorite Watch of SIHH 2015

My Favorite Watch of SIHH 2015 Fresh from Switzerland and SIHH 2015, one might be tempted to compare the Richard Mille RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur to last year’s Christophe Claret Margot. Both are rather florally inclined. Both contain elaborate automaton mechanisms. Both are limited pieces from brands know for pushing the limits of traditional watchmaking, Richard Mille and Christophe Claret.   But, while the $315,000...

2016 Ford GT: Icon, Take 3 Over 600 Horsepower from a Twin-Turbo V6 EcoBoost... Wow.

2016 Ford GT Makes Over 600 Horsepower from a Twin-Turbo 3.5-Liter V6 EcoBoost… Wow. (With Video) The iconic and Ferrari-demolishing Ford GT (formerly known as the Ford GT40) is back for a third iteration, unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. And, it’s a doozy. Not to mention, this time, there are a few minor [read: absolutely, positively major] changes.   First and foremost in the...

Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime Ref. 5175 Is Possibly the Greatest Watch in a Generation… And, it should be. The Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime is 175 years in the making. What makes it so special, apart from the fact that Patek Philippe is only making 7 (6 for sale and 1 for the Patek Philippe museum) and that it costs $2.5 million, that is? How about 20 complications, a stunning rose gold case and six patents. This...

How Much Is My Car Worth after a Car Accident? What's My Car Worth?

  What’s my car worth after a car accident? This isn’t the sort of thing I normally write. But, apart from our usual car reviews and watch news, I thought I’d write something that’s actually useful. When I talk to people about TickTickVroom, there are a couple of questions that crop up in the conversation… What car should I buy? What’s a good watch? I have this watch, what do you think...

Four Cylinder Fast Cars Maximum Performance, Minimum Engine

Maximum Performance, Minimum Engine Honda Civic Type R Concept and the Top 10 Best Four Cylinder Performance Cars   Today (or rather yesterday in France) at the Paris Motor Show, Honda has continued their… um, let’s say… extended unveiling of the next-gen four cylinder Honda Civic Type-R. And, in the tradition of the Acura NSX Type-R and Acura Integra Type-R (both badged as Hondas in Europe), this latest über...

Apple Watch… Should I Get One? (Price and Specs)

At the risk of sounding like an Apple fanboy… yes.  Yes you should. I want one and may very well get one when they come out in early 2015. Think of it this way, for $349 you can get what is essentially the most complicated watch of all time. It does every thing the Pebble smartwatch does plus soooooo much more.   No, it’s not as mechanically complex as an Audemars Piguet Equation of Time, but the Apple Watch does more...

Mercedes-AMG GT: A True Sports Car

503 Horsepower Mercedes-AMG GT S Lands in Spring 2015. 456 Horepower AMG GT Follows in 2016 (Specs and 0 to 60 Time) Okay, so the Mercedes-AMG GT isn’t your ordinary Mercedes-Benz. It’s actually a fairly unique offering from Stuttgart for a few reasons. For one thing it doesn’t exactly look like anything else that bears the three-pointed star. Yeah, it has the Mercedes-Benz nose, but that’s pretty much where it...

Bremont Jaguar Watch for Lightweight E-Type to Debut at Pebble

A few months ago, we told you about the plans Jaguar has to finish the eighteen car run of Lightweight Aluminum E-Types begun in 1963 by building the final six that didn’t make it into production the first time around. Those cars (video and photo gallery below) are going to debut on Thursday in Pebble Beach at the Concours D’Elegance.  However, what we didn’t know last May was that joining the mega-rare Jaguar XKE in its...

Megane Record Nurburgring Lap in Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy-R

Not many cars can lap the Nurburgring North Loop (aka Nordschleife) in under 8 minutes, especially not teeny-tiny little front-wheel-drive hot hatches.  A few months ago, the Seat Leon Cupra 280 did it in 7:58.4, setting a new ‘Ring lap record for a front-wheel-drive car.  The previous record holder, Renault, was understandably miffed.  So, the plucky French carmaker came back for a Megane record Nurburgring lap.  What Megane? ...
