Jalopnik

The unholy marriage of a quad turbo/quad rotor R26B and a presumably salvage title Audi R8. “Der Ketzer.” #sketching #drawing #quadturbocharged #quadrotor #r26b #wankel #rotary #engine #audi #r8 #stance #stanced #stanceworks #stance_daily #stancenation #driftcar #drifting #jalopnik #petroliciousco #DriveTastefully #drifttastefully #iamthespeedhunter #speedhunters #nittoornothing #rotangklan #jdm #d1gp #formulad

Hey Maggie (miss stiefvater? Book lord?), Looking at your YouTube uploads, Tumblr, author events, etc., it's always been obvious the passion you have for cars and fast wheels in general. I cannot imagine you ever not being all about them, so would you have any advice for an anxiety-ridden beginner driver about to take her test, who feels like she's has been handed too much power when she's behind the wheel of a screaming iron beast fueled by fear???

Dear scrumptiousbluebird,

It’s true that I adore things with horsepower, both actual horses and the wheeled substitutes. 

I actually wrote about anxiety and driving for Jalopnik (I’ve done a bunch of articles for them. Theoretically they are all about cars, but practically, they are my sneaky way of talking about humans). Here is the link

urs,

Stiefvater

The Least-Depreciated Modern Car is a Ferrari (No Surprise)

Jalopnik released a list of the ten least depreciated (or, in the case of few, most appreciated) automobiles from the past ten years.

No. 1 on the list was no surprise–the Ferrari Enzo.

Rehash: The Enzo, named after the company founder, was Ferrari’s fourth supercar.  It  was in production from model years 2003 through 2005.  According to AOL Autos, the official retail price for ‘03 was $643,000.  Approximately 400 units were produced.

Since production ended, the Enzo’s appreciated by 115% to an average price of $750,000.

The only other car on the list to appreciate was the Ford GT, which was manufactured around the same time.  Two other entries, the BMW 1M (roughly $50K) and Audi R8 (roughly $100K) neither appreciated nor depreciated.

Roxanne covered Jalopnik’s “Most Depreciated” list on our YouTube show.  In case you were wondering or needed reminding (since I know you all watch the show), the most-depreciated car was the '03 Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG.

You should know that a Benz is going to cost you.

Let’s help a young car enthusiast see his idea come to life. In this Jalopnik article, 4-year-old Eli concepts his dream car with the help of his Uncle. One of Eli’s stipulations? It has to be a BMW. Use Eli’s specs and show us your interpretation of this one-of-a-kind car. And don’t worry, we’re sketching one too. http://awe.sm/rcKA
