Londoner demonstrates how to catch air in a $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador

We’ve all seen cars go off some sweet jumps with varied results. We’ve never seen, though, a Lamborghini take flight without any sort of ramp or washed-out bridge.

That, however, is exactly what happened to a man in downtown London when he hit a Mazda turning into the lane … and then a parked BMW.

While it was stupid to think that he could squeeze his $400,000 wide-body Lambo past traffic in a car-riddled English street, at least he kept his foot in it.

I do love how the first guy to the scene grabs the statuesque blond from the passenger seat. I think I would, too.

Thankfully, no one was reported hurt. The Aventador – and the driver’s ego – were not so lucky, though.

Jeep joins the EV party with the 600-horsepower Wagoneer S

After getting things rolling with plug-in hybrids, Jeeps’ electrification plans are picking up speed. Scheduled to reach dealerships this fall, the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S is the brand’s first EV for North America.

The Wagoneer name is right up there with Wrangler and Grand Cherokee in Jeep lore. The original Jeep Wagoneer was one of the first truly civilized SUVs and became the namesake for a modern sub-brand encompassing the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, two leviathan gas guzzlers that went on sale as 2022 models. The Wagoneer S shares little with these SUVs besides a name.

The Kia EV9 is being built in Georgia — making it a whole lot cheaper
Kia EV9 GT-Line Three Quarters

Kia has officially kicked off production of the EV9 electric SUV in Georgia. That's big news for a number of reasons. First, it makes the EV9 the first EV to be assembled in Georgia. Second, it means more solid jobs in the U.S. And third, it means that the well-priced electric SUV is about to get even cheaper.

The reason for the price decrease is simple -- by moving production of the EV9 to Georgia from Korea, the SUV will now qualify for the federal EV tax credit, bringing the total price of the vehicle down by a hefty $7,500. It was already one of the more affordable electric SUVs, but the big rebate makes it even more enticing.

Kia EV3 vs EV6: How does Kia’s new EV compare with its most popular?
White Kia EV3

The Kia EV3 is finally coming, and it could end up being Kia's most popular electric car. It is also quite likely to be Kia's cheapest EV to date, while still offering high-end features, great tech, and a solid range. But, of course, the EV3 will have to compete with other Kia electric cars -- like the much-loved EV6.

The Kia EV6 was Kia's first of its latest generation of electric cars. Essentially, it was built to prove the concept of electric cars for Kia, with a stylish and unique design and an excellent range. It's fast, too -- especially the Kia EV6 GT.
