Can Ken Block's Hoonicorn Take Down a Ford GT Carbon Series?

Can Ken Block’s Hoonicorn Take Down a Ford GT Carbon Series?

Watch Ken Block’s Hoonicorn Mustang smoke a Ford GT on the drag strip

When it comes to beefed-up Mustangs, no pony compares to Ken Block’s Hoonicorn. Sure, he uses the heavily modified 1965 Mustang for a lot of drifting, but it’s insanely powerful and, as a result, insanely fast too. How fast? Well, it can put a Ford GT Carbon Edition supercar to shame.

10 Things a BMW M Hypercar Needs to Corner the Market

10 Things a BMW M Hypercar Needs to Corner the Market

BMW M Is Working On A Supercar, But What About The Hypercar?

One of the best ways to showcase your technical expertise and convince buyers to buy your cars is to build a hypercar. Mercedes-AMG did it, Aston Martin too. Heck, Volkswagen AG has the best of them all - the Bugatti Veyron and the Chiron. I can only imagine that somewhere in BMW headquarters in Munchen, the board of directors and investors sat together and discussed the hypercar idea.

After all, back in 2017, when Mercedes-AMG showcased the F1 inspired Project One, BMW M boss Dirk Hacker said:

“We would like to do a standalone car, and we could do it – but today there is no requirement from the market to do it. As a company, we are more focused on future mobility than digitization than building a hypercar, to be honest, but if we came to the decision to do a super sports car, then we could do that.”

Apparently, the market still isn’t favorable for the development of the BMW hypercar, but that does not stop us from the brainstorming of what that proposed hypercar could be. I am giving you ten different things BMW hypercar needs to succeed.

2020 McLaren Elva

2020 McLaren Elva

The most radical McLaren to date has no windscreen and pays tribute to a race car from the 1960s

The 2021 McLaren Elva is a brand-new supercar that the British firm added to its Ultimate Series lineup, alongside the Senna and the Speedtail. A two-seat open-cockpit design, it’s inspired by a series of race cars built by Bruce McLaren in the 1960s under the McLaren-Elva name. It’s McLaren’s first open-cockpit road car and its lightest road-going vehicle yet. A track-ready roadster with an aerodynamic design, the 2021 Elva features the most powerful iteration of McLaren’s twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 engine. Rated at 804 horsepower, it slots above the Senna in terms of power and falls behind only the Speedtail hybrid. Let’s find out more about this beast in the review below.

Best Naturally Aspirated Engines in Human History

Best Naturally Aspirated Engines in Human History

The best of those that can do without forced induction

When BMW rolled the 2002 Turbo towards the tail end of 1973, in the middle of the fuel crisis, everybody viewed it as insanity. Still, as years rolled by, the classic adage that said ’there’s no replacement for displacement’ seemed to hold true for at least some manufacturers. However, ever stringent pollution regulations and the need for increased efficiency pushed carmakers to embrace forced induction more broadly and strangled naturally aspirated engines one by one. Nowadays, big players such as BMW don’t even offer a naturally aspirated engine across their entire lineups and even Ferrari is all but ditching the engines that made the Prancing Horse legendary through their expertly honed soundtrack.

It’s not necessarily that naturally aspirated engines are going to go extinct in a matter of a handful of years but it’s clear that the performance levels achieved by turbocharged or supercharged units simply can’t be matched by a naturally aspirated engine. On top of that, an engine that uses forced induction is more economical due to its smaller capacity and friendlier with the environment which - in the eyes of everyone but some purists - is a win-win situation. While we love turbochargers and superchargers, we thought we’d take a look at some of the history’s best naturally aspirated engines at a time when fewer and fewer manufacturers still offer them - at least in performance cars. We assure you they are proper bangers!

Nine Early Electric Cars From The 1990s That We Forgot About

Nine Early Electric Cars From The 1990s That We Forgot About

These are the EVs that started it all in the 1990s

As of 2020, there are around 50 different electric cars available on the market, with more than half of them built by mainstream automakers, including Audi, BMW, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, Renault, Tesla, and Volkswagen. And that’s a massive number compared to the early 2010s when only a handful of EVs were available. If we roll back to the 1990s, when only a handful of companies were working on EVs, we can see that the electric car market has evolved at an impressive rate in less than three decades. But who took the world’s request to create green cars seriously and built working battery-powered vehicles in the 1990s? Let’s find out in the list below.

2019 Ferrari 488 Pista Spider

2019 Ferrari 488 Pista Spider

Maranello’s most powerful V-8 car goes topless

The Ferrari 488 Pista Spider joined the 488 lineup at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as a replacement for the 458 Speciale Aperta. The Ferrari 488 Pista replaced the iconic 458 Speciale, and it’s the first of its kind to hide a turbocharged engine under the hood.

Just when we thought that Ferrari settled for the Aperta name for its convertible sports car, Maranello returned to using the old Spider badge. But this is arguably a small issue here, as the Pista Aperta is just as exciting as its coupe sibling, but with extra headroom when the top is removed. The 50th drop-top model built by Ferrari since 1947, the Pista Spider made its global debut in the United States, where convertible sports cars are more popular than everywhere else in the world. Let’s have a closer look at the latest member of the 488 family in the review below..

This Tastefully-Customized Audi RS6 Avant Shows You Why Wagons Shouldn't Be Taken For Granted

This Tastefully-Customized Audi RS6 Avant Shows You Why Wagons Shouldn’t Be Taken For Granted

Digital steering wheel, ABT body kit, and 700 horses are just some of this wagon’s accolades

The Audi RS6 Avant is a mighty fast wagon and we can’t get over it. It strikes the perfect balance of an SUV and a sedan. As practical and spacious as an SUV and comes with sedan-like driving dynamics. The RS6 Avant also happens to be a hot favorite with the tuners. While these renditions are generally pretty good, you have to customize it based on the stuff offered by that one particular tuner only.

However, here’s one example of a heavily customized RS6 Avant that comes with parts and accessories from various equipment manufacturers and we love it to bits. Nice, huh?

The McLaren Artura Is Fast, But Not Fast Enough to Be a Dodge Challenger

The McLaren Artura Is Fast, But Not Fast Enough to Be a Dodge Challenger

Well, it’s the Dodge Challenger Super Stock, and Only by 0.2 seconds in the quarter mile

The Artura is the stepping stone for McLaren moving into the future. It is the third hybrid model (behind the P1 and the Speedtail) and the first plug-in hybrid to roll out of the automaker’s factory. There was a lot of buzz surrounding its powertrain, but a few months into the launch, we now have some stats that give us an idea of how good (or bad) the Artura is.

As it turns out, the supercar can hit 60 mph from rest in three seconds flat and quarter-mile in 10.7 seconds. Impressive? Oh yes. However, it’s not as quick as the Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock to a quarter-mile.

2022 Jeep Compass

Refreshed exterior, interior, and new tech additions make the 2022 Compass an interesting proposition

Jeep has refreshed the Euro-spec Compass but it gives us a good preview of what to expect from the U.S.-spec model that will arrive later this year. The 2022 Jeep Compass comes with exterior and interior cosmetic upgrades, and some tech features inside the cabin. This compass also comes with a new plug-in hybrid powertrain called the 4xe. Trivia: This is the first Jeep launch in Europe after incorporating it into the Stellantis umbrella.

Are Automakers Using V-8 Engines As An Emotional Bait?

Are Automakers Using V-8 Engines As An Emotional Bait?

What are carmakers focusing on – developing quality EVs or coming up with V-8 engines in their products?

The world is moving towards electrification faster than we can digest. While many of us are looking forward to clean mobility, some enthusiasts and purists are dreading it and want to enjoy internal combustion engines while they last. Automakers have been reducing the number of cylinders under the hood in the name of “efficiency” for a long time now, but that didn’t mean V-8s weren’t in demand. But, with major strides being done in electrification technology lately, the demise of V-8s will be sooner than expected.

However, many vehicles are being offered now with V-8 engine options. This is pretty much against the tide, but very welcoming, to say the least. So, the question here is, are automakers trying to use V-8s as an emotional bait to lure in customers and build a loyal base heading into the future, or is this the last hurrah before V-8s finally slip into oblivion?

Will You Forgive GM for the Crap Quality of the C8 Corvette if the C9 Looks Like this?

This concept will never see daylight unless GM rebrands itself as a European carmaker

Chevrolet got the performance right for its first-ever mid-engine production car but in doing so, it kind of missed the whole point of what a well-made interior should look and feel like. But what if the carmaker came up with a next-generation C9 that had a more European flavor and looked like Leyang Bai’s design study?
