Road Tests

The Jaguar's long fast roofline, running from the base of the windshield to the tail is on...

Jaguar’s F-type, successor to and loosely based off the iconic E-type, has rightfully been acknowledged as a brilliant new take on one of the industry's most famous rides. Following on from my time behind the wheel of a gorgeous 495 hp F-type V8S roadster a few months back, I recently had the opportunity to drive the less powerful (but equally gorgeous) 380 hp V6S Coupe version. So how did the car hold up to the V8S in terms of performance and value?  Read More

After giving the rundown on BMW's latest, greatest super-naked motorcycle, the S1000R, in our write-up a couple of days ago, it's time to sing the praises of the brother to BMW's S1000RR superbike with our video review.  Read More

We put Erik Buell's latest American sportsbike through its paces in our latest video motor...

After yesterday's relatively sober and serious look at Erik Buell's next Great American Sportsbike, it's time to have a little fun. Here's our video review of the EBR 1190RX.  Read More

Jaguar's new F-type V8 S roadster doesn't have the E-type's iconic lines, but that doesn't...

With its stunning GT proportions, beautifully flowing aluminum body, 8-speed ZF gearbox and a 495 hp supercharged 5.0 liter V8 under the hood, Jaguar’s new F-type V8 S roadster has attracted widespread critical acclaim. Is it worthy? We recently climbed behind the wheel of the new cat to find out for ourselves.  Read More

Ford's 2014 Fiesta ST: excellent fun, if a bit rude.

We recently spent two weeks with the Ford Fiesta ST – a driver's car that's all about involvement, connection and fun. It needs to learn some manners, though, as you'll see in our road test video.  Read More

2014 Zero SR: review video still

Last week, we rode the 2014 Zero SR, and its awesome electric performance made us question everything we thought we knew about motorcycling. Here's our road test video.  Read More

It's been about three years since we last tested one of Zero Motorcycles' electric bikes, and in that time, the company has been very busy. Compared to the 2011 Zero S, the 2014 Zero SR has between 200-400 percent more everything – riding this bike was an absolutely shocking progress report on the state of the art. The SR represents a liminal moment in motorcycling. We may look back in years to come and see this as the first time an electric motorcycle stood shoulder to shoulder with petrol powered bikes, and made them feel like yesterday's heroes.  Read More

Infiniti's Active Lane Control camera based system is designed to keep the Q50 in its lane...

Infiniti’s 2014 Q50 raises the luxury performance sedan stakes with the introduction of three cutting-edge technologies: Direct Adaptive Steering, Active Lane Control and Predictive Forward Collision Warning. We recently had the chance to see how these innovations play out on the road. Read on for our impressions as we coast through Ontario's cottage country in the Q50.  Read More

The shape that offers the best balanced and best handling stunt machine of the Seabreacher...

Though it fails to fit into any traditional man-made watercraft category, the Seabreacher X is remarkably comfortable in the water, turning quicker than anything made by man and happily skipping across the tops of the waves at 50 mph. This is not surprising given that it's based on a shape refined over 420 million years at the top of the ocean food chain – the shark. Give it more horsepower than Valentino Rossi's MotoGP bike, make it so light that it has the power-to-weight ratio of a Bugatti Veyron and you get the Seabreacher X. Its semi-pressurized hull enables it to tickle your adrenalin glands both above and below the waves, and it rates as the most outrageous boy's toy I have ever sampled.  Read More

Triumph's Speed Triple R

There's nothing exceptional to point out on the Triumph Speed Triple R's spec sheet. Its power figures are quite modest compared to the big guns in this day and age, it doesn't look particularly special, and it doesn't come loaded with sophisticated rider aid technology like a lot of the bikes we've reviewed lately. And yet, I've never had so much fun on two wheels, or fallen so hard for a bike so fast. So what is it about this snub-nosed British bad boy that makes it such a compelling ride?  Read More
