Ken Block Drifts An 8,000-Pound Ford F-450 Dually Because Of Course He Can
Ken Block is the G.O.A.T when it comes to drifting. Give this man any vehicle with four wheels, an engine, a transmission, and a steering wheel and he’ll drift it; in this case, six wheels. It doesn’t matter how big or small the vehicle is. For some reason, Ken Block thought drifting an F-450 dually would be fun. It sounds absurd and laughable, but he managed to drift an 8,000-pound truck like it was some customized hatch.
The 2021 Ford F-150 Will Debut in Less Than a Month - Here’s What We Know
Amidst all the news surrounding the F-150’s delayed production, the company shutting down its factory after reopening it, and the delay in the Bronco and Mach-E’s production, there is finally some good news. Ford has revealed the 2021 Ford F-150’s debut date – 25 June, 2020. The information comes to light through a tweet by Ford’s communications manager, Mike Levine.
Because of the Dodge Viper ACR, The Challenger ACR Will Actually Be Something Special
The ACR name – also known as American Cup Racer – is a name that represents the very best on-track performance that Dodge can offer. It was introduced back in 1999 on the Dodge Viper and was used, briefly, on the Neon (we can argue about this another time), but has been sitting on the shelf since Dodge decided to kill the Viper off a few years ago. The Challenger, however, in a sense, helps to fill the void left by the Viper’s untimely exit, so it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that a Challenger ACR is actually on the way. The latest word on the Challenger ACR, however, hints that it could be just as much Viper as it is Challenger. Let me explain this a little further.
SpaceX and NASA’s Historic Launch – In A Nutshell
Astronauts have been to space before. What’s all the fuss about? – I’ve been reading stuff like this since the Crew Dragon launch, and it only made sense to explain it all in brief. The ‘fuss’ was because this was the first time that a private company has launched people into orbit. It opens up a whole new avenue in the form of commercial space trips, which was a far-fetched thought until now. Crazy, right?
This E85 BMW Z4 With a V-10 Is Clearly From a Different Dimension or Alternate Reality
What to do when you’ve got a 600 horsepower BMW Z4 that loves to smoke its back tires on your hands? The only logical answer is to take it to Germany’s limitless Autobahn network and allow it to run free. That’s exactly what the AutoTopNL did and, boy, is it a joy to watch. Just to refresh your memory before we delve deeper into this crazy build: never did the E85-generation Z4 come with anything bigger than the 3.2-liter S54 inline-six from the factory. Yep, we don’t quite know how the E60/E63-era V-10 fit in there either but here it goes.
Watch in Amazement As The 2021 Ford Bronco Takes On The Wild With Ease
The 2021 Ford Bronco has been spotted on multiple occasions, but this time, we get to see it in action. The Bronco Nation uploaded a video of the two-door and four-door Broncos having some fun in the Georgia mud. The short clip features three Broncos in their camouflaged avatars, showing off their off-roading prowess. The video is more than a blurred leak or a spy shot and gives a good idea of how the Bronco would do in its natural habitat.
You Can Own a Lamborghini Huracan for $130,000 But It’s Been Passed Around Like a Dirty Diaper
A unique Lamborghini Huracan is now up for grabs on eBay. It carries a listed price of $130,000, making it an intriguing prospect for supercar hunters in the ‘Bay. But before you make an offer for this Huracan, consider the fine print first. This Lambo is owned by Royal Exotic Cars, a Las Vegas-based exotic car rental company that has had this Huracan in the fold since the business started in 2015. It’s logged 188,000 miles, making it the “Highest-Mile Huracan in the WORLD.” If that’s not enough, Royal Exotic Cars founder Houston Crosta claims that almost 2,000 people have driven the Huracan since it was first offered for rental in 2015. Knowing all of that, would you still make a bid for this Lamborghini?
Don’t Be Fooled – The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is Just a Shelby GT350 With a Smaller Engine
The good news is that the Mach 1 name is, in fact, returning after nearly two decades on the back burner. The even better news is that it’s returning for a track-capable Mustang, the very model it was always meant for. We don’t know much about the 2021 Mustang Mach 1 yet, but it will feature a powerful and naturally aspirated, 5.0-liter V-8, and it will sit at the top of the lineup if you exclude the Shelby GT350 and GT500, of course.
Watch the Porsche Macan Turbo, Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, and the Audi RS Q3 Go Up Against Each Other In a Drag Race
The folks at Carwow brought together three respectable SUVs – the Porsche Macan Turbo, Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, and the Audi RS Q3 Sportback – for a drag race.
On paper, the SUVs aren’t as closely matched as you expect them to be. If you go purely by specs and the power-to-weight ratio, you can determine the winner without even watching the race. But, we’ve seen in the past that things are generally different when you race vehicles in the real world. Do you think we’ll have a surprise winner at the end?
The Best Racing Games of All Time
Car racing is one of the backbone genres of the video game world. That’s been the case since Pole Position arrived in arcade parlors in the early 1980s. Forty years later and the pixelated days of car racing games have morphed into a world of beyond-realistic racing simulators that have become more and more realistic as new titles are released. In that span, several classic games entered our lives, leaving their mark in several different ways. We pay homage to these ten iconic car racing game titles, or as I like to call them, the ten best racing games of all time.
Tesla Slashes Prices For Model S, Model 3, and Model X
Tesla has reduced the prices of its three most popular models in what seems to be an attempt to revive demand and sales. Riding on the back of a fairly successful quarter, Tesla is looking to repeat the feat at a time when many automakers are even struggling to break even.
The electric automaker has lowered the price of the Model 3 by $2,000, the Model S and Model X by $5,000. The Model Y doesn’t get a price cut, which makes sense considering it’s a newly-launched product.
Cadillac’s Giant Four-Cylinder Engine Explained
Back in 2019, General Motors introduced a new four-cylinder engine in the Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. Developed specifically for the midsize truck, the engine eventually made it into the Cadillac CT4-V sedan for the 2021 model year. So what’s so special about this engine? Well, for starters, it’s pretty big for a four-cylinder at 2.7 liters. It also features a dual volute turbocharged design instead of the more common dual scroll layout. And the folks at Engineering Explained talk about this feature and what kind of benefits it brings to the table.
Splitting the Difference: 2003 Honda Civic Type R vs. 2020 Honda Civic Type R
You know how they say ’respect and honor your elders?’ Well, we can all agree that Honda is doing just that with the Civic and in particular with the Civic Type R.
The nifty hot hatch has remained true to its origins - albeit switching to turbocharging along the way - but that original Type R ethos is still present in modern Type Rs. Don’t believe us? Check out Throttle House’s latest video.

Someone Carved a 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Out of Wood And We Can’t Quit Watching
If you are active on social media, you would’ve seen people trying to pick up a new hobby or skill during quarantine. Everyone is trying to keep themselves busy by doing something out of the box. If you’re still looking to pick up a skill, I’m sure this video will convince you to try out wood carving. This ‘woodsmith’ has a channel on YouTube by the name Woodworking Art where he uploads his creations. Recently, he carved a 2020 Toyota Prado Land Cruiser to absolute perfection. This video is the ultimate example of skill and craftsmanship at its finest.
The Japanese Nissan Figaro Is a Car You Didn’t Know Exists But Have Always Wanted
When it comes to Japanese Kei cars, they can be split into three types: boxy, cute, and downright weird. Deciding which is which obviously depends on personal taste, but the Nissan Figaro is definitely of the cute variety. On top of looking like its made from candy thanks to its vintage color palette, the Figaro also looks as if it was designed in the 1960s. And I say "looks" because the Figaro was actually produced in 1991.
