When we’re not creating it ourselves, the CarAdvice team spends a lot of time finding and consuming motoring content from all over the world.

Here’s a handful of the articles, videos and social media posts that most caught our eye last week. Some of them are brand-new, others have been online for a while.

Enjoy them – just not too much, okay?

“The wail. You know the wail.

Axl Rose’s voice is an otherworldly thing, with a range and strength that any other rock vocalist would kill for…

That upper register has also been the calling card of every memorable performance Honda. Cars that made approximately no torque but could scream to 9000 rpm over and over and over again.

Cars like the S2000, Integra Type R, and NSX, known for how they sound when that VTEC kicked in, yo and how that combined with a compliant chassis to make a truly unique experience.”
