In today’s day and age, there are so many options to view entertainment—Netflix, iTunes, YouTube, and the circa-500 million channels on cable, satellite, or whatever your preferred provider is. Yet somehow, with all the choices out there, I have found myself watching one particular show quite a lot recently: Miami Vice. Here’s why you should, too.

These 5 Awesome Concept Cars Are on the Market

Concept cars are not often what they seem to be. Usually, they’re just styling “mock-ups” of a finished vehicle, and don’t move under their own power. The ones that do are often engineered just well enough to move for photos, but not capable of keeping up with traffic. We, however, have found a few concepts and near-concepts that could make a home in your garage.

How Well Did an Alfa Romeo MiTo QV Handle The Mille Miglia?

How Well Did an Alfa Romeo MiTo QV Handle The Mille Miglia?

By Jacopo Villa / 19 May 2015 / 16 Comments Read More

This year, Petrolicious was in the Mille Miglia with two cars: the 1100 Zagato and a 2015 Alfa Romeo MiTo QV, affectively dubbed the "Petromobile". While the first is an historic racecar, the latter is a quick and fast Italian hot hatch, with a 1.4-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Oh yes, Petrolicious and #drivetastefully stickers adorn the bodywork. I just love it! We were lucky to have Alfa Romeo on our side by lending us this little red thing to follow the race just a week or so ago: I made a few calls and was able to take delivery of it in Milan.

Hello everyone, my name is Aadjan van Holst from Northland, New Zealand, and this is the story of my old Porsche. I became interested in cars and motor racing at a very young age. I fell in love with the a Porsche 911 at age 10 when I saw a black Carrera outside my dad's workshop. The shape, the dimensions and the sound and the look of these cars was incredible to me. From that moment on I was hooked.

Christopher “Chris” Burden, who passed away last week, was a pioneering artist who emerged at the forefront of the art world for his early work in performance art. During a time period when performance and conceptual art seemed overly trivial and increasingly irrelevant, Burden’s work was a break with tradition because of the involvement from the artist himself. Here are some of our favourite pieces from his career.

We Finished The Mille Miglia…In A Modern Car

The Mille Miglia gets better and better every day—no matter if your car is broken and you're out of the race. There are benefits in being out of an Italian car competition: you can instead enjoy the sight of hundreds of cars, driving fast across beautiful scenery. From a certain point of view, it is a better thing to be driving a press car than to be concentrated in reading some notes and operating chronometers!
