The name "Afroduck" went viral last week, after its creator posted a YouTube video claiming he recorded the fastest lap ever around Manhattan, completing the 26.5-mile run in just over 24 minutes. He then proceeded to boast about how you "can't identify who I am," and felt certain that New York's many speed and surveillance cameras, along with license plate detectors, wouldn't catch him.
You can guess what happens next.
New York police arrested one Christopher Tang, 30, on Thursday night and charged him with speed violations, reckless endangerment, traffic device violation and reckless driving — thanks to his own video.Read More »from Driver who videoed fast lap on Manhattan streets snared by NYPD
What happens when you combine a group of middle-aged folk trying to think like millennials, Fred Flintstone and a skateboard?

With Audi unveiling its new Sport Quattro Concept, it reignited my infatuation with rally cars from the 1980s. While not a Sport Quattro, this '81 Audi Quattro GP4, sent to us courtesy of the Wessex Car Club and seen here rallying at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, ignites the same lusty images.

The original Audi Sport Quattro, developed for Group B rally homologation in 1984 and sold as a limited production vehicle, signifies Audi at its very best. As it powered across gravel roads in the hands of the world's best rally drivers, or slithered up Pikes Peak in 1985 — setting a new course record — it inspired car enthusiasts (like myself) in a more real and relevant way than a Testarossa or Countach ever could, much like the equally rousing Lancia Delta Integrale.
And after a brief tease of its revival back in 2010, when Audi revealed a Sport Quattro Concept at the Paris Auto Show, we've been musing about the possibility of a Sport Quattro return being imminent.Read More »from Audi Sport Quattro Concept debuts as a 700-hp plug-in hybrid
The problem with the Volkswagen Golf R isn't necessarily its standalone performance, nor its refrained styling. It's that it costs $10,000 more than the Golf GTI, but lacks the necessary pizazz to justify the additional cost. But perhaps that's about to change.Read More »from 2014 Volkswagen Golf R revealed as sub 5-second hot hatch
"I've learned that when you want to make a YouTube hit, you need the hook at the beginning of the film," said Claes Nilsson, President of Volvo Trucks, while holding a cast iron hook from the brand's latest FMX off-road model work truck. To emphasize his point, Nilsson stood on the nose of his 15-ton truck — suspended above the Gothenburg port in Sweden by the very same towing hook he was holding.
Some 640,000 views later (in less than three days), Nilsson's stunt to prove his trucks toughness lands Volvo's commercial truck business a YouTube mega-hit.Read More »from Volvo Trucks’ CEO climbs high for aerial stunt
Since its birth from the pits of the Can-Am racing series in 1975, the Porsche 911 Turbo has stood for the idea that going fast meant putting yourself at risk. No matter the size of whale tail spoiler, or the skill of the driver, 911 Turbos were machines that could be tamed with practice but never fully domesticated.
To sample Porsche’s latest 2014 variants of its iconic turbo 911s, we ventured to Germany to take laps on the Bilster Berg racetrack, a new venue that models itself on a mini Nürburgring. With crests, yumps, bumps and ridges, any car that handles the course without staining its occupant’s underwear remains highly impressive. Prior to embarking on track, I chose a pair of black Calvins. Just in case.Read More »from 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S, fighting physics: Motoramic Drives
Volvo is readying the reveal of three concept cars showcasing the brand's potential design possibilities from its new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA). The first design in the series is this, the Volvo Concept Coupé. With its P1800-esque floating grille, Clint Eastwood eyes and looping rear taillights, the design elements may become familiar: Despite being a different type of car, Volvo says the next XC90 will bear strong resemblance to the Concept Coupé. So take note.Read More »from Volvo Concept Coupé pushes forward while looking back, recalling the P1800
