Trident Iceni Diesel Supercar Is Coming to the US (Pricing)

In August 2012, we told you about the Norfolk, England-based Trident Sports Cars and their Trident Iceni diesel supercar.  In that particular post, I extolled the virtues of its rather powerful 6.6-liter turbo-diesel and six-speed automatic gearbox.  And, now, the Trident Iceni is officially ready to launch, and it’s coming to the U.S.   Trident claims the Iceni is the “the world’s fastest and most fuel...

Piston King Motor Oil by Mail

Does a hatred of running to your local auto parts store to pick up a case of 10W-30 keep you from from being a do-it-yourself-motor-oil-changer?  If so, that’s good.  Because, Piston King Motor Oil, is banking on it.   Piston King is a new brand of synthetic and conventional motor oils that sells exclusively through their online store at PistonKing.com.  But, is it actually easier or cheaper (or even equally as easy or...

2015 Jeep Renegade: Here Comes the Baby Jeep

People are calling the 2015 Jeep Renegade a baby SUV or a Cute Ute.  I myself just called it the Baby Jeep two seconds ago in this post’s headline.  But, truth be told, the 2015 Jeep Renegade is a (semi-) serious, off-road SUV that is fully worthy of carrying the Jeep badge atop those seven vertical grill slats.   The 2015 Jeep Renegade broke cover at the Geneva Motor Show last month, but it has since made its US debut at...

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...

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: 2014 TickTickVroom Car of the Year

It’s officially TickTickVroom’s Second Anniversary.  I can’t believe we’ve turned 2!  I honor of our terrible twos, we thought we’d create the annual TickTickVroom Awards consisting of the TickTickVroom Car of the Year and TickTickVroom Watch of the Year.   Just to explain our process… Our anniversary falls on April 13.  So any car and any watch that comes to market between April 13ths is...

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Long Term Review: 6 Months

Well, it’s been about six months and 10,221 miles since we took delivery of our 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 long-term test car.  We took a vow when we leased the car to keep it for better and for worse, and let this six-month long-term review serve as an account of both the better and the worse.   Our 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 But, first a reminder on what it is we’re testing, exactly.  In October 2013, we leased a 2014...

Porsche Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS: Two More Reasons not to Buy a 911

The Porsche Cayman S is arguably the best Porsche to be had under $130,000.  And, few cars can best the Porsche Boxster S in terms of speedy, open-top motoring enjoyment.  Both cars (and their non-S base-variants) are superbly balanced, incredibly well-built, easy to use (despite the astonishing excess of buttons in the cabin) and deliver pure driving joy on the track, freeway or twisty back road.  But, now there are hardcore versions...

Ferrari California T: A Turbo Droptop from Maranello (Video)

Maranello’s turbo-charged Ferrari California T may very well be the belle of the 2014 Geneva Motor Show ball.  Announced in February and just unveiled in Geneva, the Ferrari California T is one awesome droptop.   Ever since the Ferrari California first hit the streets in 2008, I’ve had the opinion that the 2+2 grand tourer is a bit half-assed.  The 3,600 pound, 454 horse California was fairly powerful and had decent...

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...
