The late actor had good taste in cars
The late Paul Walker had a formidable collection of cars, many of which were offered at auction in January. And of the 21 cars and bikes sold by Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale, a good number were BMW M3s. Seven, to be precise-
The designs include some BMW and Alfa Romeo classics
Uniqlo's collections are usually easy to like. Their designs are plain and minimalist-and that's what a lot of people prefer. Sometimes, these collections even feature designs that seem almost tailor-fit for gearheads like us.Introducing Uniqlo's The

It predated the X5 by four years
This is the BMW Z18 concept from 1995. It aimed to fuse the adventurous world of enduro motorbikes, off-road buggies, and posing in a convertible. It was put together by designers and engineers from BMW's renegade R&D division set
An entertaining history lesson
The story goes that back in the late '90s, Volkswagen boss Ferdinand Piech decided his empire was going to build the world's fastest, most powerful supercar. Only he didn't know what badge it was going to have. The Big Man
Every big company has a turning point
The Volkswagen Golf's story starts with the Volkswagen Beetle, one of the most successful and iconic cars ever built. During its heyday in the '40s to the '60s, the company unsurprisingly produced several variants. However, it was facing a major dilemma:
The finished product won’t disappoint
We've always found car restoration videos therapeutic. What kind of gearhead doesn't like seeing a rotten classic return to its former glory, right? That's why it's hard to say no to these kinds of content when we come

What could have been
In motorsport, as in life, there are so many what ifs. What if Ayrton Senna didn't die in 1994, would he have beaten Michael Schumacher? What if Fernando Alonso had stayed with Renault and not gone to Ferrari, would he be
Racing sims are on another level these days
Here's something that'll have gamers without racing wheels fuming in their non-gamer seats: The BMW M3 E30 DTM-one of the most popular, not to mention successful, touring cars ever to grace the track-has been given a second

How much do you think it will sell for?
Engine swaps aren't unusual these days, and we're always on the lookout for the most ridiculous pairings. Spoiler alert-they usually contain a big block Chevrolet V8, although this Mini Moke with a Maserati engine was a particular highlight recently.
