The Lamborghini Centenario is a fairly special thing. Concocted to celebrate what would have been the 100 birthday of Ferruccio Lamborghini, it comes not only with a 760bhp V12 – making it the most powerful road-going Lambo of the lot – but much technology. Things like rear-wheel steering, bespoke Lamborghini telemetry and connectivity systems and an extreme aerodynamic setup, as well as much, much carbon. In fact, it’s something of a testbed for the tech we’ll see on less limited, less expensive Lamborghinis in the future. Which, when we’re talking about a 40-off, £1.7million special edition, can only be a good thing. You’ll be very jammy to see one of these moving in real life, so click and watch the video above to see one at Italy’s Nardo test track. Yes,

Hot Bike Tour Bagger's Build Off 2016 Trask Assault Series Saying Nick Trask has a thing for speed is like saying Hannibal Lecter likes having people over for dinner. Both comments embody gross understatement. One guy deals with motor oil instead of olive oil though. Nick Trask is known throughout Harleydom for his ballsy Trask Turbo units. Tack on his years of experience with Harley and S&S iron and you have a cocktail for a badass powerplant—just like the one in Nick’s 2015 Baggers Invitational Build-Off machine. It’s also known as Second Offence because it’s the second child in Nick’s Assault Series of bikes. Nick’s buddy, Rick Distefano, shares his speed addiction. Second Offence was created to sate Rick’s horsepower hunger. Powered by a 132-inch S&S X-Wedge mill, it
Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, presents the edgiest member of the Indian Chief line-up and the first 2016 model — the Indian Chief Dark Horse. The Indian Chief Dark Horse is a cruiser built upon the successful and award-winning Indian Chief platform. Unlike other bikes in the Indian Motorcycle line-up, it is understated with only a flash of chrome and adds a healthy dose of matte black paint to create one of the most confident silhouettes on the market. By all but eliminating chrome from the motorcycle and swapping to cast wheels, the Dark Horse conveys an aggressive pose, and being the lightest in the series, is the quickest model in the Chief family. Striking an ideal balance of attitude and features, the 2016 Indian Chief Dark Horse delivers the style, qua
The first impressions of the 2016 Ducati XDiavel have been available for a while now. Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, we were unable to attend the press launch held earlier this year in San Diego, California (and we wanted it that way). The truth about new model press launches is that they end up being closely monitored rides from one photo op to another, all while the highly competitive world of motorcycle editors are all trying to see who can get the story up online first. Rather than regurgitate the same story as everyone else, we wanted to really know what this bike was all about, so we opted to have the bike for a longer period of time in order to truly test it over a greater variety of riding conditions. We wanted to really get to know this bike and then report back w...

Donald Trump on Saturday ripped the Justice Department over reports it warned the FBI against publicly acknowledging new emails potentially related to the Hillary Clinton email investigation so close to the election. The Republican presidential nominee argued during a rally in Golden, Colo., that Justice Department officials were "fighting" to stop FBI Director James Comey from sending the letter to lawmakers Friday. "The Department of Justice is trying so hard to protect Hillary," Trump said to boos from the audience. A government official on Saturday told The Hill that the Justice Department's stance was to abstain from taking action that could impact the White House race Nov. 8. “The AG’s position is consistent with the department’s position not to take investigative s
