This new Shelby GT350 engine promises to be pretty friggin cool. It's the biggest flat-plane-crank V-8 ever to hit regular production, it features some interesting innovations, it revs to 8250 rpm, and it sounds awesome without imitating a Ferrari. Here's my deep-dive look at what makes it tick.
We take an in-depth look at the flat-plane-crank 5.2-liter V-8 engine in the Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang.

Today's contribution to the Miata Mania. Start spreading the news: 155 hp IS enough to make this the quickest Miata yet, and it will always be more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow...

If you still can't afford a McLaren F1 supercar, maybe this city-car concept designed by the same guy will appeal? Okay probably not. But it's pretty cool that an oil company is in on the ground floor of the design of a concept car so as to optimize all the lubricants...
Shell has instigated Project M as a further development/refinement/redesign of GMD's T.25 to showcase what improvements can still be made by coengineering the powertrain and lubricants.

Sadly bidding adieu to Big Jim, 'my' long-term GMC Sierra Denali pick-em-up. He was a little tricky to maneuver in tight quarters, but SO comfy and capable out on the road. Happy trails Jimmy!
