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...

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,...

2014 Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition: Frigid Jeep to Hit US Dealers in November

Jeep really likes their limited edition Wranglers… The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Dragon Edition, the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Freedom Edition, the 2014 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon X.  And, the latest limited edition of the iconic 4×4 is the frosty 2014 Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition.   Unveiled back in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Wrangler Polar Edition is, ironically, based on the Wrangler Sahara model.  With...

2014 BMW 2 Series: Bimmer Doubles Down [Video]

The BMW 1 Series is dead.  Long live the BMW 2 Series.  I have mixed feelings about that statement.  Drive-wise, I was fan of the 1 Series, especially the 135i.  It was an incredibly fun car to throw around… tight, nimble and quick as the dickens.  Looks-wise, it wasn’t the loveliest of cars.  As a matter of fact, it looked like it had a potbelly.  So, as long as the 2014 BMW 2 Series drives as well (or better) as the...

2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series: MB’s Top Tire Shredder

At 583 horse and with a 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is already a powerful, torque-happy machine.  But add the words Black Series to the name and the car becomes a whole different beast.  The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series is the top dog of the current Mercedes-Benz lineup and the fifth Black Series model to come out of Stuttgart (after the 2006 SLK55 AMG Black Series, the 2008 CLK63 AMG Black Series,...

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Takes on the Nurburgring [Udpated: Price]

After ten hours and 1,000 miles of Nurburgring track testing, a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 driven by Adam Dean lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in an astonishingly quick 7:37.47.  Yeah, 7:37.47… That’s quick.  And, it was in the wet.  The track was slick, and by the end of the run, it was raining.  I know what you’re thinking… “Isn’t a Chevy Camaro Z28 a muscle car?  And, aren’t muscle cars...

2015 Cadillac Escalade: I Like It. [Updated]

A good friend of mine from college always referred to Cadillac’s monster SUV as an Esssscallllaaaaaaaade (said in a drawn-out, sing-song-y way).  A little obnoxious (and IMPOSSIBLE to get out of your head), I know, but that was his point.  He thought the Cadillac Escalade was an overly big and obnoxious vehicle with the sole purpose of inflating egos and burning gas.  In the minds of many, he wasn’t wrong.   To this day, I can’t...

BMW M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe: A Peak into the Next M Cars

As you may know, the BMW M3 Coupe is no more.  For the next generation, it will be replaced by the BMW M4 Coupe (which is essentially the same thing).  However, the BMW M3 Sedan is here to stay.  So, the questions on everyone’s mind is “What will the next generation M3 and M4 be like?”   Thank to BMW, we now have a bit of an idea what to expect when Bimmer unveils both the M3 and M4 at the Detroit Auto Show. ...

BMW X6 M Design Edition

Well… at least it’s not plaid.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the colors of a Martini Racing-ish livery, almost as much as I love the Gulf Racing livery.  The red, dark blue and light blue stripes on the limited BMW X6 M Design Edition just feel a bit out of place.  That’s probably because everything about the BMW X6 M is out of place.   That being said, BMW isn’t going to make many of the X6 M Design...
