Coolest Thing to Do with a Junker: Race a Lancia Zagato in Full-Size Pole Position 1982 Lancia takes the place of the little red racer from Atari's Pole Position

1982 Lancia Zagato takes the place of the little red racer from Atari’s Pole Position I’m back. And, so is TickTickVroom.com. It’s been a while since my last post. I took a bit of time off from the site. But, now I’m back to hunting and pecking on my keyboard with a new take for TTV. This site has been a combo of news, reviews and editorial junk for the past few years. I’m not Autoblog, so why would you...

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...

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. ...

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...

The world debut of the Jaguar F-Type Coupe is happening at the Los Angeles Auto Show right now, as we speak.  But, thanks to a preview party yesterday and the car’s presence at the Tokyo Motor Show we have some great photos and amazing specs, including those of the model’s headliner, the F-Type R Coupe with a 550 horse, 5-liter supercharged V8 with a 0-60 mph time of 4.0 seconds and a limited top speed of 186 mph.

Listen to the Porsche Macan before Its LA Debut

More proof that the new Porsche Macan CUV won’t be your garden variety small CUV.  Porsche is all set to debut the Macan at the Los Angeles Auto Show in about a week and a half, but they were kind enough to release this video (more of an audio laid over an image of the Porsche Macan’s exhaust tip) of the CUV’s raucous exhaust note.   The Porsche Macan will come with one of two engine choices, a 3.0 liter V6 or a...

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. ...

[Video] Porsche 918 Spyder Sets a Nurburgring Record

As if people needed another reason to want the ultra-fast $845,000 Porsche 918 Spyder.  I mean, sheesh.  The 918 Spyder already accelerates from 0-60 in about 2.6 seconds.  It’ll top out at 214 mph.  And, it’s the best looking Porsche in two or three decades, all-the-while being as kind to Mother Earth as a big fluffy bunny.  But apparently all that wasn’t good enough.  Porsche decided the 918 Spyder hybrid needs to...
