At any motorsports event, there’s always one team that is totally unprepared. From grassroots drag racing to the Indy 500, you’ll see one car that’s still in the pits during the first practice, one team wiring up the engine or trying to pass tech while everyone else is qualifying. If they do finally make it to the grid or the staging lanes, they don’t stay out there for long. This is a particularly common sight at Speed Week on the Bonneville Salt Flats, where you’ll often see a car under a tarp with a bare block hanging over the engine bay for the entire week before it all gets packed away for next year. It seems like an expensive and uncomfortable way to spend your vacation, but I guess the…

defending the brand

LAND ROVER HAS GONE SOFT. While its Range Rovers are striking and urbane, everything in the lineup seems either too precious or too luxurious for mud-slinging off-road misadventure. The Land Rover Defender is supposed to fix that. More than two decades have passed since Land Rover offered its archetypal nameplate in the U.S. This new one shares nothing with that truck other than a badge, but like the “Jeep Wrangler” and “Ford Bronco” monikers, the words “Land Rover Defender” are more than a name. This SUV has a reputation to maintain, a promise to live up to. Built on Land Rover’s new D7x architecture, the Defender ditches its ancestor’s body-on-frame structure and stick axles for unibody construction and independent suspensions. Some might call it soft. Our thoughts? Put away the torches and quit…

putting baby in a corner

The sight of a full-size adult driving the Baby II makes the three-fourths-scale Bugatti Type 35 look like a toy, but it’s not. “According to the EU, it’s too fast to be classified as a toy,” says Ben Hedley, CEO of the Little Car Company, which created the electric Baby II in collaboration with Bugatti. As the name suggests, this isn’t the first time that Bugatti has gone after the affluent Power Wheels shopper. In 1926, company founder Ettore Bugatti created a half-scale Type 35 for his youngest son, which led to a run of about 500 total. Dubbed “Bebe,” this tyke-size car cost 5000 francs when new, making it as expensive as many cars of the period. The new Baby starts at $35,500, and the base model comes with composite bodywork,…
