    THE 2014 AUDI A8 L 3.0 TDI REVIEW

    Full Review by Andy: Diesel Worship

    The Golden Calf.
    Zeus at Olympia.
    Tirumala Krishna.

    If such a list of idols existed for the auto industry, the 2014 Audi A8 L 3.0 TDI sedan would likely be included. Devotees have been pleading and praying to the Automotive Gods to bring diesel power to America, and finally, God and Uncle Sam answer.

    After General Motors’ slipshod diesel duds from the 1980s, automakers have been loath to pump diesel back into the American conscious. The diesel faithful have been holding onto hope, though, and this year, Audi unleashes one of the coolest diesel-powered sedans to ever run in America: the A8 L TDI.

    THE 2014 FORD MUSTANG GT CONVERTIBLE REVIEW

    Full Review by Andy: An Address to Mustang Shoppers

    On Nov. 19, 1863, two men mounted a podium in a blood-soaked battlefield in Pennsylvania. One, a famous senator, eulogized for two hours using a depth of vocabulary that almost drowned the audience in the blunt trauma of its endless lyricism. The other, a lanky lawyer from Kentucky, spoke quietly in the pelting rain for two minutes. The first speech is forgotten. The latter is now known as the Gettysburg Address.

    Sometimes, words are too much. So rather than soaking the 2014 Ford Mustang GT Convertible in bombastic admiration → Read More

    THE 2014 SRT VIPER REVIEW

    Full Car Review by Andy: The Lethal, Exotic Snake

    I am not a supercar driver.

    Now I certainly enjoy the race. Put me in Baja mudder or a stock car screwed together in some Kansas garage, and I am raring to go. Put me on a long straightaway in Oklahoma, and I will see how fast I can catch up to the horizon. But about the time 130 mph hits, I remember Newton’s law of inertia, and I see my mangled arm being pecked by buzzards, and I ease off the throttle.

    The 2014 SRT Viper is for the drivers who keep going, buzzards and Newton be damned.

    According to Newton’s conservation of momentum, being hit by an SRT at full tilt is equivalent to being trampled by an elephant galloping at 80 mph. → Read More
