Spyros Panopoulos Chaos Is The First Greek Hypercar And It Will Not Be An EV
Nowadays, there are plenty of startup companies cooking up an EV hypercar. Thanks to the electrical revolution, the hypercar industry has become like the watch industry – come up with a provocative design and then outsource the electric powertrain from somewhere else. However, internal combustion engine hypercars are still alive and it seems the next big thing isn’t coming from Bugatti, Pagani, or Koenigsegg, but….from Greece.
Mid-Size Pickup Truck Drag Race: Honda Ridgeline Vs Hyundai Santa Cruz
There’s something to be said about a drag race between pickup trucks. Straight-line performance is not really the main selling point of these types of vehicles, but it still gives you an idea of how good the powertrains are at propelling them. Last time, Sam CarLegion had a RAM 1500 TRX vs Ford F150 ROUSH drag race, instore. This time, it’s the Honda Ridgeline vs the Hyundai Santa Cruz, and here’s what happened.

Porsche’s 3D-Printed Seats Are Now Available, But There Are Some Stipulations
Porshe has been obsessed with innovation, or needlessly reinventing the wheel, depending on how you look at it for decades. From stubbornly making the engine work in the back of the car to making an electric sedan that weighs well over two tons handle like a dream. As a result of this meticulousness, Porsche produces some of the greatest sports cars in the world. Building off this, the German sports car manufacturer is back at it again with their 3D-printed bucket seats.
SUV Battle: Cullinan Black Badge vs Urus, did anyone ask for this duel? The guys at ABT did it anyway.
In this latest ¼ mile drag race showdown, Daniel Abt pits two vehicles that cater to two different ends of the SUV spectrum. They include the Rolls Royce Cullinan, which has to be the most luxurious SUVs that money can buy today, and the Lamborghini Urus, one of the sportiest ones out there.
Someone Is Building A Real-Life CyberPunk 2077 Quadra V-Tech
Cyberpunk 2077 came out in December 2020 and quickly got a lot of flak for its numerous bugs and broken promises. Be it as it may, the game offered a very unique perspective on what cars would look like in the dystopian future. But for some, playing the game isn’t enough, which is exactly what we see on the YouTube channel Burning Wrenches, where the host has an affinity for fabricating stuff. One of its creations is a real-life replica of the Quadra V-Tech, featured in the game.
The 2023 BMW M2 Competition Was Going Hard On the Nurburgring
The new BMW M2 has been spotted testing at the Nürburgring. It has been spotted back previously as well, but this time it’s in the Competition-spec. BMW is planning to revamp the new M2 to a large extent and it won’t just be a baby M3 now. Will it be able to live up to the hype, or are we in for a disappointing surprise when the car comes out?
Future McLaren Super Cars Will Have Some Provocative Names
Cars are one of the human inventions that most captivated man’s imagination. This is especially true for supercars, which is why many people compare their seductive curves to those of a beautiful woman. Given that supercars (and by extension cars) can be viewed as living beings, as opposed to a means of transport, it’s only fair that they have the appropriate names.
Since McLaren returned to making road cars, their names seemed like a bit of an afterthought. The main offender was the MP4-12C, which according to some journalists sounded like it belonged to a fax machine. But all that is about to change, as McLaren recently filed trademarks for three non-numeric names.
2021 Volkswagen Golf R Variant By PS-Sattlerei
In Europe, the Volkswagen Golf is a very popular car: you can spot one at literally every corner! Well, at least the standard version, as when it comes to the GTI or the R versions things are a little bit different. Of course, that’s because there are not as many in production as the standard version.
This doesn’t mean though that the Golf R doesn’t enjoy a lot of attention, especially from tuners! Just recently, ABT Sportsline came with a pretty cool update kit for the Golf R hatch, and today is time to talk about an upgrade for the Golf R Variant.

2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia
The Giulia, is a well-known sports sedan from the house of Alfa Romeo that does not fit in a category the Germans ace in. It is a lot different with its sexy Italian looks, performance, and handling capabilities that can take the enthusiast inside of you to another zone. With the 2022 model year, Alfa Romeo did a few tweaks in the exterior with the new Veloce trim, and other than that, there are a few feature updates as well. Speaking of the competition, we cannot think of others apart from the Audi A5 Sportback, Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan, and the BMW 3 Series. Let’s find out about the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia more in this detailed review below.
2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan By Klassen
On the U.S. market, a base Rolls Royce Cullinan is priced at $330,000. Not the cheapest SUV out there, but not very bad considering we are looking at a super-luxurious SUV. Then again, if you think that the prices for the Aston Martin DBX start from $180k and the ones for the Lamborghini Urus from a little over $210k, maybe the Cullinan is a bit expensive!
But, how would you feel about a $1 million Cullinan? Or, to be more precise €833,000 - or about $965,000 at the current exchange rate. A model like this actually does exist and it comes from the German tuner Klasses. Why is it so expensive? Lets find out!

Finally an Aston Martin DB5 You Can Afford!
Back in 2019 a fully restored Aston Martin DB5 that stared in the James Bond movie "Goldfinger" was auctioned for the impressive amount of $6.4 million. With a price like this, no matter how much we like the DB5, you can imagine that not many people out there will get the chance to actually own one.
Now though, you can own a very cool looking DB5. But there is a catch: you can’t drive it! And that’s because it comes from Playmobil! Yeah, we know, now the DB5 you were dreaming about, but it is better than nothing, right?
2022 Chevrolet Tahoe
With the 2021 model year, the Tahoe received a generational upgrade that included the addition of a few more trims and various improvements inside and out. For the upcoming 2022 model year, Chevrolet has updated the already well-equipped Tahoe with newer colors, advanced features, and some other goodies. The 2022 Tahoe competes with the likes of the 2022 Ford Expedition (starting MSRP: $53,000 est.) and the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer (starting MSRP: $59,995). With an expected starting price of around $52,000, is this the full-size SUV the one you should consider? Let’s dig deeper.
2021 Manhart GLR 700 Limited 01/10
Everyone knows that AMG stands for performance. If you hear that someone drives an AMG model you automatically think about power and speed. But more power is both possible and more than welcome, so this is where the tuners came in. Manhart for example is offering a new tuning kit for the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S Coupe. It will be called GLR 700 and will be limited to only ten units, but there’s something very special about those 10 units.
After 5 Years, the Mercedes-AMG One Finally Goes Into Production
It’s been a little over four years since Mercedes and AMG first revealed the Project One – a daring hypercar whose goal was to blend F1 performance and technology with the simple phrase “road capable.” As easy as that sounds, there’s a reason we’ve had to wait so long for the original Project One to become a reality – it wasn’t so easy after all. For six months after its unveiling, Mercedes was balls to the wall when it came to sharing insight about development and goals, even claiming that the One was going to be the fastest car to ever grace the Nürburgring. But, this is where fairy tales become nightmares, and both Mercedes and AMG finally got a taste of just how hard it is to build a true F1 car for the road.
The Coolest Concept Cars That Actually Made it to Production
Concept cars are how automakers reveal the future direction they are going to take with different models. They seemed pretty outlandish and ambitious in the past decades, but the future has caught up. True, flying cars are still a ways off but what seemed alien in 1995 is far more pragmatic in the 2020s. The current concept cars resemble a lot of the design language of today’s cars, which means they are in tune with what the people want. Unfortunately, the majority of concept cars do not make it to production status. It may be funding or a general change direction. The ones that did pull through, though, have become some of the most influential models in the automotive market.
The 2023 Nissan Maxima Could Finally Be A Step In The Right Direction
You probably know the Nissan Maxima as the brand’s bland sedan, destined to be a fleet car for a rental company or a taxi service. Over the years, the car did have a few decent versions, among which the SR, which was supposed to be a sportier variant of an otherwise unremarkable mid-size, front-wheel-drive sedan. To make things worse, the Maxima dropped the manual option in 2008 and, ever since, the potent 3.5-liter V-6 had to work with a lame CVT unit. However, the 2023 Nissan Maxima has the potential to be an exciting proposition. Here’s why.
Bac Mono R Beats Ferrari LaFerrari at Red Bull Ring, Austria
Back in 2015 a Ferrari LaFerrari with German racing driver Hubert Haupt behind the wheel became the fastest production car around the famous Red Bull Ring, Austria with a lap time of 1:38.95. The Italian supercar enjoyed the supremacy for six years, but things have changed. The king has been defeated!
Can the Tesla Plaid Beat the Heat?
It’s not every day that you get to run alongside and race a cop car. But with the “Take it to the Track” event currently underway at the Orlando Speedway World, you can. And this time around, it’s not just any cop car. In this showdown, Andrew from the Tesla Plaid Channel takes on a fire-breathing 1980 big tire Camaro Police car.
Is There Any Way On Earth That A Ducati Panigale V4R Superbike Can Bully A BMW M5 And A Nissan GT-R On Steroids?
The good folks at ‘Carwow’ had a three-way race between a BMW M5 Competition, a Nissan R35 GT-R, and a Ducati Panigale V4R. While the superbike was stock, the cars most certainly weren’t. The German and the Japanese made 2,400 horses combined to fend off competition from a 200-odd-horsepower bike. Do you think the Ducati can beat these two cars, or will it be one of them to show the superbike its place?
