Ford F-150 Raptor Rendering Looks Good In All the Right Places
The F-150 Raptor was without any serious competition in its niche so far, but now Ram has come up with the Rebel TRX, or popularly known as the “Raptor-killer”. To make sure it survives the onslaught from its rival, Ford will have to take steep measures to make the truck look more desirable.
One of the ways to do that would be to give it aesthetics upgrades, and here’s a set of renderings that do exactly that. Rendering artist Mo Aoun has imagined the F-150 Raptor, and it looks sharper and much distinct from the actual model.
Nissan Has Finally Confirmed the 400Z - Here’s Your First Look
Following years of rumors that Nissan’s next Z model could be a crossover, the Japanese company has finally confirmed that the successor to the 370Z will also be a sports coupe. In a presentation outlining its future product strategy, Nissan showcased a new Z car that looks a lot like the outgoing 370Z. There’s no official name for this car yet, but all rumors point toward the 400Z name.
Check Out This Hand-Built 2JZ Toyota Supra Laying Down 2,033 Horsepower on the Dyno
Part of what made the previous generation Supra a cult car was the 2JZ engine’s versatility when it came to tuning. And that sort of reputation doesn’t simply wash away, not even when there’s a new Supra running around the block. And this video is perhaps the best testament of the A80 Supra’s legendary status.
The Most Aerodynamic Cars Ever Made (Including Concepts)
Alright, we get it, the great Enzo Ferrari believed aerodynamics are for people who can’t build engines but when you’re trying to move an object with as little energy as possible, a streamlined body is crucial to the task. So whether they’ve been built to compete in green races or with the intent to serve the masses or break speed records, these care are the ultimate masters of aerodynamics.
Ford Is About to Do Unthinkable Things to the Mustang And Bronco Names
I think Ford doesn’t remember how annoyed purists and enthusiasts were when the automaker slapped the Mustang moniker to the Mach-E.
The car was set to be the company’s first pure EV, so it didn’t need the Mustang badge to be relevant. As if this wasn’t enough, Ford has now decided to make the Mustang a sub-brand. This means the company plans to sell Mustang-branded vehicles in the future. To add to the misery, the Bronco will be made a sub-brand too. Why is Ford giving us multiple reasons to hate it?
Will This Abandoned 1970 Cadillac Deville Actually Start and Drive Home?
Most people would tell you not to buy a car with visible rust that’s been sitting in a field since the Y2K but that’s not what Vice Grip Garage is all about. No, Vice Grip’s mission is to save as many cars as possible and the fact that this Caddy’s been sunk in a valley bottom all the way to the chassis isn’t a good enough reason to not rescue it.
The 2021 Ford Bronco Will Have a Seven-Speed Manual Transmission, But It’s Not What You Think
The 2021 Ford Bronco was supposed to debut this spring, but with the ongoing Covid situation, it is still unclear if that’s happening. However, Ford recently said that the Bronco will "have its world debut this spring."
If true, this means the Bronco will be unveiled within a few weeks. In the meantime, there is some scoop on this vehicle. TFLcar has updates about the Bronco’s infotainment system, different packages, and even its seven-speed gearbox. The latter, however, is not what you think it is.
Would You Drive a Rainbow-Colored Bentley Bacalar?
If you’re part of the richest 0.1% and want to show off your enormous wealth, you’ll probably resort to buying a really expensive car. As luck would have it, there are many, many multi-million-dollar cars on the market these days and Bentley peppered up that list not too long ago with the Mulliner Bacalar, a $2 million version of the Continental GT Convertible with a speedster-like tonneau cover.
12 were made and all were sold before the rest of the world even got to see the car but Bentley reckoned the Bacalar could sprain even more necks and that’s how the car you see here came to be.
This Dacia Sentry Rendering Envisions An Unlikely Porsche Taycan Fighter
While Dacia is indeed planning to go electric, it will do so with a crossover-y model heavily inspired by the Spring concept car. So it goes without saying that a fully-blown, out-and-out performance EV wearing the Dacia badge is out of the question. But one can dream, right?
The new Mercedes-AMG E53 Coupe looks just as hot as the E63
Introduced in 2017, the latest-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class was upgraded to facelift specs earlier in 2020. Now, the German company unveiled similar updates for the Coupe and Convertible versions of the midsize, including the performance-rated AMG E53 models. Although engine specs remain unchanged, the AMG E53 now sports a hotter exterior and new technology.
This Video Explaining ALL the Various Car Shapes Will Make You Question The Meaning of Life
Things were pretty simple when the automobile became popular 100 years ago, as most cars looked pretty much the same. Nowadays, we have more than 10 main body styles and about as many niche segments that spawn from these common designs. The folks over at Donut Media recently released a video in which they discuss every car shape out there with interesting info about when they were introduced and the etymology of their names.
Apex Aims to Launch an "Affordable" EV Once the AP-0 Hypercar Launches
Almost every EV startup’s first vehicle is a supercar. Once better sense prevails, they move on to building mass-market, affordable vehicles. Is it a marketing strategy to create a strong impression in the minds of the customers? Perhaps. Tesla has done it, so has Fisker, and Rivian almost followed the same suit.
The latest electric automaker to take this route is U.K.-based Apex. The company debuted its first vehicle called the AP-O concept in London a couple of months back, but it plans to build an affordable EV once the AP-O is launched. Going by the history of the companies that adopted the same trend, we’ll probably have to wait for a few years.
The Hyundai Veloster is a fun, affordable car that is positioned securely in the compact hatchback niche and, while it doesn’t rank necessarily high in terms of power, its unique style, performance, and fairly upscale interior is quite noteworthy. Currently a year into its second generation, we decided it was time to get behind the wheel of Hyundai’s fan favorite, and to our surprise, a Veloster Turbo landing in Topspeed HQ’s parking lot. This, my friends, gave us the perfect opportunity to see how the Veloster Turbo holds water against models like the Volkswagen Golf GTI and the Honda Civic Sport Touring. This is our story after spending a week with the one and only Hyundai Veloster Turbo.
The 2021 BMW X2 Goes Hybrid With 35 Miles of EV Range, But There Is a Trade-Off
Unveiled in 2017 as a slightly smaller and sportier alternative to the X1, the X2 was well received and sold more than 120,000 units in its first two years on the market. Come 2020, and BMW is introducing the first hybrid drivetrain for the subcompact SUV. The new trim is called the xDrive25e and combines the 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine in the base model with an electric motor. Launched in Europe for now, the hybrid should join the sDrive28i and the M35i models in the United States soon. Let’s see what it has to offer.
2020 Genesis G90 - Driven
For 2020, Genesis has performed a styling update that makes the 2020 Genesis G90 look a decade newer than last year’s model. The new design, along with some other updates, make the G90 more worthy of its flagship status. Still, this is a Korean car with a base price of $72,200 — a combination that’s going to be a tough sell regardless of the vehicle’s merits, and despite the fact that its closest competitors are even more expensive. What does Genesis do to earn these big bucks? We spent a week in a top-of-the-line G90 5.0 Ultimate to find out.
The 2021 BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo Is Still Ugly, But It’s Now a Mild Hybrid
Although the 6 Series is no longer in production, having been replaced by the 8 Series, BMW continues to offer the oddly shaped Gran Turismo (GT) model in Europe. The five-door hatchback was introduced in 2017, and it was just revamped for the 2020 model year. Featuring styling cues from the most recent 5 Series model, the 6 Series GT looks crisper and sportier. More importantly, it now packs mild hybrid drivetrains across the lineup.
If You Can Get Past The Language, This Top Gear-Style Testing of Chinese Cars Is a Blast to Watch
The Jeremy Clarkson era of Top Gear will always be the gold standard of motoring shows, but there’s a show in China called Big Crazy Car that should make Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond proud.
The show is in Chinese, obviously, so unless you understand the language, it’s going to be a little tough to follow. But the action — and comedy — are all on point, something we didn’t think we’d get from a show that we had never heard before until now.
