Ford had introduced the Timberline trim on the Explorer also earlier this year. But that’s not it. A Stealth Edition is also now available, which, as the name infers, comes with blacked-out trims inside and out. The new additions further expand the Expedition’s lineup and now takes on the likes of the Jeep Wagoneer and the Chevy Tahoe even more aggressively.

Two Reputed Japanese Sportscars Learn It The Hard Way To Never Mess With The Porsche 911 Turbo S!
The Porsche 911 Turbo S needs no introduction. It is in its elements almost always, but on the drag strip, it is nearly invincible. The folks at ’Carwow’ decided to pit the German against two Japanese sports cars – the Nissan GT-R Nismo and the Honda NSX. Knowing their credentials, it looked like they stood a chance, especially the Godzilla. But, neither of them were even in the Porsche’s league and got their asses handed to them multiple times.
This Is Probably The Slowest Drag Race You Will Ever See!
Mat Watson from ‘Carwow’ conducted a very different kind of race recently. He didn’t have any fancy cars this time. Instead, he drag-raced a Citroen Ami against a scooter, an e-bike, and two remote control cars. No prizes for guessing which one of these won, but this incredibly fun race will leave you in splits.
This One of 16 1954 Ferrari 500 Mondial Pinin Farina Spider Has Already Attracted A Bid of $1 Million

Later, Pinin Farina made 15 of these, although a Ferrari historian, Marcel Massini, notes that 16 were made. Either way, one of the Pinin Farina-built models has come up for sale on Bring-a-Trailer and it has already received a bid of $1 million!
The New 2022 Toyota Tundra Breaks Cover With A New Hybrid V-6 And A Whole Lot Of Major Upgrades
Toyota sold the second-gen Tundra for 14 years with a few nips and tucks in that period to keep it fresh. Despite the fairly strong sales, those were not enough and the truck was clearly outdated when compared to its American rivals, the Ford F-150, the Chevy Silverado 1500, and the Ram 1500. So, for 2022, the automaker decided to bring in the third-gen Tundra.
The company has ditched the V-8 in favor of a V-6 that’s offered in two configurations, equipped a new suspension system, underpinned it on a new chassis, and a whole lot of other major upgrades. It sure looks and feels in line with the other players in the segment now.
History of Dodge Logos
Dodge revealed its electrification plans a couple of months back starting with an “American eMuscle”. Not a lot was revealed about the electric muscle car since it is far from its launch, but the company gave a few glimpses of it. While the teaser showed just silhouettes, we noticed that the car had borne a different logo. No, it wasn’t a new logo. It was the ‘Fratzog’ logo that the Dodge cars proudly wore back in the 60s and 70s.
Given this throwback by Dodge, we decided to present to you the most notable logos that the automaker has used since its inception.
The Lucid Air Officially Takes Down The Tesla Model S To Become The ’Longest Range’ EV With An EPA-Rating Of 520 Miles!
Lucid Air came out all guns blazing and looked like the only serious threat to the Tesla Model S in all these years. It countered the Model S like-for-like in most of the features and specs. But, in one spec – that probably matters the most in EVs – it has killed the Tesla. I’m talking about the range. The Lucid Air was officially tested by the EPA and it managed to achieve a rating of 520 miles! This is 114 miles more than the Tesla Model S, which used to be the production car with the best range EV until now.

Here’s a List Of Nine Non-Exotic Rare Cars That Hide In Plain Sight
When you talk about rare cars, you probably think of high-end Bugattis, Ferraris, Porsches, etc. No one would think of a regular production car to be a rare one, unless it is a vintage. But, surprisingly, many cars are actually quite rare and get lost in the crowd without getting noticed. Unless you have a keen eye or you’re a diehard petrol head, you too may not have noticed them. Doug DeMuro lists nine such rare cars that you might have walked or driven by without giving it a second look.
Tug Of War: New Land Rover Defender vs Two Old Defenders
Land Rover introduced the new Defender two years ago around this time. While it seemed rugged and strong on paper and turned out to be a rather sweet package, a lot of purists didn’t find the old-school charm in it anymore, which wasn’t wrong. But, how does it compare to its predecessors in terms of pure strength? Mat Watson from Carwow decided to find the answer by pitting it against two yesteryear Land Rover Defenders in a tug of war. While one of them featured a diesel mill, the other was an electrified version. Which SUV do you think has the edge?
Weird: The Lo Res Car Looks Like A Poor Man’s Tesla Cybertruck
Doug DeMuro recently laid his hands on a very weird-looking, ummm, car? For the sake of a better word, we’ll stick to calling it a car. He laid his hands on a car that’s created by the Dutch Footwear brand, United Nude. Called the Lo res, it is exactly what it’s named – a low-resolution car. It is said to be a Lo-res version of the Countach, but for sake of maintaining the sanctity of the iconic Lamborghini, we’ll stick to calling it a watered-down version of the Cybertruck. No offense, Tesla fans!
2021 BMW X6 M Competition By Manhart Performance
German-tuner Manhart Performance has laid its hands on the BMW X6 M Competition and given it a rather radical and unique twist. The company has dropped oodles of forged carbon fiber on it inside and out. It even comes with new wheels, an exhaust system, and a tuned suspension setup. Not to mention, Manhart has also given a power boost to further distinguish it from the standard X6 M. The price is not revealed, but the MHX6 700 WB isn’t going to be cheap by any means.

2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE
Mercedes-Benz was quite active at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show. It came up with five vehicles there, which included the AMG EQS, the EQG Concept, the EQB crossover, and the Maybach EQS SUV. Among this lot was also the EQE, an E-Class-based electric sedan. This baby EQS is loaded to the gills and seems like a sweet package at the onset. The only fly in the ointment is the availability of the single-motor setup, to begin with, but a dual-motor setup EQE and an AMG EQE will arrive in the future.
2022 Mercedes EQG Concept
Mercedes went on an electrification spree at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show in Munich, Germany. One of the cars unveiled here was the EQG, the EQ electric equivalent of the legendary G-Class SUV, or more popularly known as the G-Wagen. The off-roader is one of the most iconic models ever built and is still going strong despite its boxy and old-school demeanor. In fact, that is the one thing that’s still attracting purists.
The company showcased the EQG Concept that follows a similar path, but with a lot of new tech. This is said to be a near-production concept, so we can expect the real deal to be revealed by next year, perhaps.

If not for the halo – the protective titanium hoop – things could’ve gotten very ugly for the Mercedes driver. Well, the good thing is at least he’s safe and alive.

A Porsche 911 Turbo Gives The BMW M5 CS A Taste Of Its Own Medicine On The Drag Strip
BMW has upped the ante with the 2022 M5 CS. It makes more power than the M5 Competition, which itself comes with over 600 horses. It is also 230 pounds lighter, thanks to the generous use of carbon fiber. It has been a terror for other stock cars on the drag strip lately, but it seems like another German is here to put it in its place.
The folks at Throttle House decided to pit the BMW M5 CS against the Porsche 911 Turbo, and the latter has proved why it is in a league of its own.

2023 Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+
Mercedes-Benz unveiled the EQS earlier this year. This electric S-Class equivalent came with a whole lot of impressive specs and features that put it right on top of the EQ hierarchy. To elevate it to the next level, the German automaker introduced the AMG variant of the EQS called the EQS 53 4MATIC+ that comes with a lot more power and a few other mechanical upgrades.

If You Thought Tesla’s Yoke Steering Was ‘Ludicrous’, Check Out This Steering Pad From GM
It looks like steering wheels are going to go extinct soon. Not because autonomous vehicles will take over in the future, but because automakers are ditching the ‘wheel’ in favor of other shapes.

A 1,000-Horsepower Ram TRX Runs Dangerously Close With the Lamborghini Huracan
The Ram 1500 TRX is primarily an off-road performance truck, but with specs like a supercharged V-8, 700+ horses, 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds, etc. there’s no reason why it shouldn’t hit the drag strip. So, Brooks from ‘DragTimes’ decided to have it go up against a Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD for a series of drag races.

2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA and GTAm
Scout the history books and you’ll find traces of the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA from the 20th century; 1965, to be precise. If you thought the Giulia Quadrifoglio was the best the automaker had to offer, then you’re in for a surprise. The Giulia GTA is a sporty sedan that makes 187 horses per liter and is the living embodiment of Alfa Romeo’s racing spirit. Stuff like 20-inch wheels, twin-turbo V-6 engine, sub-four-second 0-60 mph time, etc. are just some of its accolades.

The folks at Carwow brought in the 991 Porsche 911 GT3 RS to take on the new 992 911 GT3 on a drag strip.

And at the onset, it looks like it will be a mighty close finish. But, which car would claim the bragging rights and go down in the history books as a better straight-line performer?

These Renderings Show Us What The New Lamborghini Countach Could Have Looked Like
Lamborghini revealed the new Countach earlier this month and it was the talk of the town for a long time. The automaker revived the moniker on its 50th anniversary and based it on the Aventador. While the new Countach came with a lot of elements from the yesteryear model, it wasn’t as old school as a lot of people expected it to be. For a modern car with retro vibes, it did well. But, for a moniker as beloved as the Countach, the car missed out on a lot of stuff.
Since the looks drew polarizing opinions, some rendering artists took it upon themselves to show us what the Countach could’ve looked like if it was a lot more retro and old-school. One of them is Siim Pärn who shared his renderings with us.
Watch The Dodge Demon Get Exorcised On The Drag Strip By The Tesla Model S Plaid
The Model S Plaid’s dominance continues. In case you’re unaware of what a bully the Model S Plaid can be on the drag strip, let us remind that the car has obliterated and humiliated cars like the Nissan GT-R and even the Porsche Taycan Turbo S! Surprisingly, it lost to a remote control car on one occasion.
But, anyway, DragTimes has brought the Model S Plaid to the drag strip to take on the Dodge Demon, a muscle car known for its ferocious nature. But, the Model S Plaid tames it with utmost ease. How often do you see a Demon get humbled like this?
1993 McLaren F1
Update: The Spiritual Successor to the McLaren F1 - the Gordon Murrage T.50 - has launched with a similar three-seat configuration and ultra-lightweight, Cosworth-built engine, and the most impressive aerodynamic system of any supercar on the market today. Check out our full review of the Gordon Murray T.50 or all of our recent coverage of it
The McLaren F1 was unveiled in May 1992 and was the company’s first road-going production car. The idea was born in the late 1980s, when Gordon Murray, the technical director of McLaren’s Formula One, began sketching the F1 as a three-seat supercar. Appointed as head of McLaren Cars in 1991, Murray convinced Ron Dennis to build the vehicle and played a key role in the design of the F1. It was unlike any other supercar launched up to that point. It had a race-inspired design, a three-seat configuration with the driver seat in the middle, and a comfortable ride for a vehicle of its kind. It was also the first production car to use a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and the first to bring high-tech and expensive materials such as titanium, magnesium, Kevlar, and gold under the same roof.
Not only powerful and quick, the F1 was also the world’s fastest production car. Its record endured from 1992 until 2005, when Bugatti unleashed the ludicrous Veyron. The F1 spawned a couple of special-edition models such as the LM and the GT, but it was also used as a base for the GTR race car. Essentially a standard F1 with aerodynamic improvements, the GTR went on to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in its first year on the race track.
Some 25 years have passed since its introduction and the F1 is already considered a classic. Usually changing owners for millions of dollars, the F1 is one of the very few multi-million-dollar supercars built in the 1990s.
Watch The Mercedes-AMG CLA45 Pin Down The Tesla Model 3 Performance… Well, Almost!
The folks at Carwow pit the Tesla Model 3 Performance against the Mercedes-AMG CLA45 Sin a series of drag races. It seems a little unfair at the onset because the Tesla Model 3 Performance is a beast when it comes to straight-line sprints, but the CLA45 did its best to make sure it wasn’t a lopsided race. To make things even more interesting, the Mercedes is tuned to make the exact same power output as the EV; but will the Tesla’s instantaneous torque come into play?
This Downsized Electric Ferrari Testa Rossa J Will Get Your ’Testa-sterone’ Buzzing!
The 250 Testa Rossa is one of the most iconic models to have rolled out of Ferrari’s factory. This racing car was in production for four years, between 1957 and 1961. In fact, a 1957 250 Testa Rossa sold for $16.4 million back in 2011! Now, even if you have the money, it’ll be very tough to find an example today. So, what’s the next best option? A replica.
U.K.-based Little Car Company has teamed up with Ferrari to build a replica of the 250 Testa Rossa that will cost you a fraction of the real model. But, there’s a catch. This is a three-quarter scale model and comes with an electric powertrain. Care to buy?
These Cool Images Of The 2022 Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 Are Wallpaper-Worthy
Lamborghini took the wraps off the 2022 Countach last week and it stirred the proverbial pot. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Countach and the Italian automaker decided to do something special for it. The Countach is based on the Aventador and has elements of the Sian, and of course, a lot of cues of the original Countach as well.
Ford’s Persistence On Pushing The Mach-E As A Mustang Continues Via This Appearance Package
Ford introduced a new Ice White Edition Appearance Package for the Mustang. Well, since the Mach-E is also a Mustang, that gets it too. Ford has not announced if it’s a limited package or not, and neither has it announced the price. The cars equipped with these packages will arrive at the dealerships in 2022.
2021 Land Rover Defender 110 by Heritage Customs
Netherlands-based Heritage Customs is known for its Land Rover Defender builds. The aftermarket company has created many bespoke editions of the yesteryear and the new Defender models. The company has again created a bespoke model for a TV celebrity, Winston Gerschtanowitz, based on the new Defender 110 called the Valiance.
2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo
The 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo is a special-edition version of the 4C Spider and the final production run of the nameplate for North America. Launched in 2013, the Alfa Romeo 4C arrived on U.S. soil in 2014, marking the brand’s return to North America after almost 20 years. With the coupe model discontinued in 2018, Alfa Romeo confirmed that Spider sales are also coming to a halt in the U.S. for 2021. But the small, lightweight 4C is going into the history books with a bang through the limited-edition 33 Stradale Tributo model.
Genesis GV60 - A Luxurious And Plusher Equivalent Of The Hyundai Ioniq 5 And The Kia EV6
Genesis has forayed into the crossover EV segment with the new GV60. This isn’t the first electric Genesis, as the company has previously unveiled the G80e and we’ve even spotted the electric version of the GV70 called the GV70e. The GV60 is the Genesis equivalent of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6. Considering Genesis is the South Korean group’s luxurious division, the GV70 will also be more premium and plusher than its cousins. So, does that mean we’ll have a Tesla Model Y and Ford Mustang Mach-E rivaling product with a heftier price tag?
2019 Lamborghini SC18 Alston
From the outrageous styling, to the thumping V-12 powerplant, to the breathtaking performance, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is anything but boring. But that’s not stopping one lucky owner from turning the volume knob up to 11 on their Raging Bull. Say hello to the SC18 Alston, which comes with race-spec aero and a track-ready attitude to set it apart from its more “standard” brethren. And although it’s designed for track use, the SC18 Alston is still road-legal, bringing the best of both worlds into wing-tastic harmony.
2022 Lincoln Navigator - An SUV That’s Heavy On Tech Features And Luxury
Lincoln debuted the 2022 Navigator with a fresh face and a whole lot of tech upgrades. The tech upgrades include a bigger touchscreen system and hands-free technology called the Lincoln Glide that’s a disguised Ford BlueCruise system. The SUV will also support over-the-air updates to save time at the dealerships. Things under the skin, however, are nearly identical to the 2021 model, with the only change being the loss of 10 horses from the model it replaces.
Mercedes G-Class Carbon Wide Track Edition by Kahn Automobiles
Kahn Automobiles is known for its radical builds, and this time, it has come up with one for the Mercedes G-Class.

2023 Nissan Z Breaks Cover With 400 Horses And A Manual Gearbox
Almost a year after unveiling the Z Proto, Nissan has finally launched the compact sports car in New York City. The Nissan Z looks nearly identical to the concept and comes with a V-6 engine under the hood that makes 400 horses. It will also come with a manual gearbox as standard. A limited ‘Z Proto Spec’ model will also be available. As for the price, Nissan says it will start at around $40,000.
Watch The Tesla Model S Take On The German Trio Of The Audi e-Tron GT, The Mercedes EQS, and The Porsche Taycan
The folks at Carwow brought in four of the best EVs that money can buy you today. The contenders include an Audi e-Tron GT, a Mercedes EQS, a Porsche Taycan 4S, and a Tesla Model S. The Model S is the veteran of the lot, but can it defeat its fairly new rivals on the drag strip?
2021 Aston Martin Valkyrie Spider – A Valkyrie That Can Touch Speeds Of 205 mph With The Roof Off!
Aston Martin had unveiled the AM-RB 001 concept back in 2016. It went into production a year later and came out with the ‘Valkyrie’ moniker. It hasn’t been an easy ride for the British automaker with this product, one instance being the hypercar suffering from a $7-part failure that killed its debut run at the Goodwood FoS, but Aston Martin is going at it with full determination.
Adding a third model to the Valkyrie’s lineup after a coupe and a track-only AMR Pro version, Aston Martin has unveiled the Valkyrie Spider – an open-top version that retains the same performance but loses on the roof and the gullwing doors.
Watch the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Sweat It Out Against The German Duo Of BMW M4 And Audi RS6
The folks at Carwow brought in three very different vehicles to the drag strip for a series of straight-line races. The face-off was between an Audi RS6, a BMW M4 Competition, and an Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio. All of them are some of the fastest vehicles in their respective niches. So, how do they fare against each other?
2022 Acura NSX Type S – A Sportier NSX With 600 Horses And A Starting Price Tag Of Over $170,000
Earlier this month, Acura announced it will retire the NSX. But, the car will receive a grand farewell before fading away into oblivion. The automaker said that the NXS will receive the sportier Type S treatment. Unveiled at the 2021 Monterey Car Week, the NSX Type S comes with a power bump and some aesthetic upgrades inside and out. It will be limited to only 350 examples and 300 of these are slated for the U.S. Acura has priced this at $169,500.
2021 Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 - A Sian And Aventador With The Original Countach’s Design Cues
When Lamborghini announced that the ‘Countach’ nameplate is making a comeback, it took the whole world by storm. The company teased in twice in quick succession earlier this week, hoping to create some hype before eventually unveiling it. However, the car was leaked right after the Italian automaker teased it on its social media. A day later, Lamborghini has taken the wraps off it.
The Countach nameplate is revived on its 50th anniversary and it seems to be the Sian and Aventador’s lovechild with the design cues of the original Countach. It is powered by a V-12 mill with an electric motor that puts out over 800 horses. It will be limited to just 112 examples.
Lamborghini Teases The New Countach Yet Again
Update 08/12/2021: The new Lamborghini Countach is leaked. Scroll down to see the images and learn more about it
Lamborghini took the whole world by surprise when it announced that the ‘Countach’ nameplate is making a comeback three decades after it was sent into oblivion. Although nothing much was revealed other than a silhouette of the wedge-shaped car, the Italian automaker decided to continue hyping the car by revealing a few more teaser pictures within a couple of days of the first announcement. Lamborghini took to Instagram to upload three more images of the upcoming Countach that suggest that it could arrive sooner than expected. Are you as pumped up about it as we are?
Mercedes-Benz S 680 Guard 4MATIC – An Armored Car That Can Withstand Even Kalashnikov and Dragunov Sniper Rifle Shots!
Mercedes-Benz has come up with an armored version of the S-Class for the “heads of state and business leaders” called the S680 Guard 4MATIC. This automaker has been building such special vehicles since 1928, but it’s the first ‘Guard’ that features an all-wheel-drive system. It comes with a VR10 certification, which is the highest ballistic test rating that’s available for civilian vehicles. As for the price, you’ll have to shell out over $500,000 to own it.
2020 Aston Martin Victor
The 2020 Aston Martin Victor is a bespoke, one-off supercar developed by the company’s Q division. Built around a carbon-fiber monocoque from the One-77, a car that Aston Martin offered from 2009 to 2012, the Victor draws styling cues from the V8 Vantage of 1970s, as well as the race-spec DBS V8 (also known as the RHAM/1) that Aston Martin built in the late 1970s for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The 2020 Victor is powered by a naturally aspirated V-12 also sourced from the One-77, but some drivetrain components come from the much newer Valkyrie supercar. Q by Aston Martin built just one, so it’s one of those supercars that you can only hope to see in the metal at a fancy auto show.
How On Earth Did A Stock BMW M3 Competition Manage To Beat A Tuned Nissan Skyline GT-R And A Tuned Ford Mustang?
Carwow is back with another drag racing video, and this time, they had a pretty interesting mix. The contenders for this race were a Ford Mustang, a Nissan Skyline, and a BMW M3. The BMW M3 was in the Competition spec and completely stock. However, the Japanese and the American weren’t. The Nissan made 750 horses whereas the Ford put out 735 ponies. The M3, on the other hand, makes a little over 500 horsepower. Which car do you think will claim the bragging rights this time?
Pagani Huayra BC Pacchetto Tempesta - An 800+ Huayra BC With Significant Aero Upgrades
Pagani launched the Huayra back in 2011. After all the 100 examples were sold out, the company followed it with four more limited-production Huayra models - Roadster, BC, Roadster BC, and the Imola. Now, to commemorate the original Huayra’s 10th anniversary, Pagani has introduced a special edition called the Pacchetto Tempesta. It is based on the Huayra BC and comes with aero and performance upgrades. For those of you wondering what ‘Pacchetto Tempesta’ means, it is Italian for ‘Storm Pack’.
Brabham BT63 GT2 Concept - Is Brabham’s New Concept Better Than The BT62?
Brabham Automotive has revealed the BT63 GT2 Concept that will compete in the 2022 European GT2 Championship. It is based on the BT62, but comes with a number of aerodynamic and performance tweaks. The automaker has priced the BT63 GT2 Concept at a shade under $500,000.
2022 Infiniti QX60 - An SUV That’s Luxurious, But Isn’t Meant For An Enthusiast
After skipping the 2021 model year update, Infiniti recently introduced the 2022 QX60 mid-size SUV. It comes with a whole lot of updates and feels quite modern overall. It retains the same engine, but it’s now mated to a nine-speed automatic gearbox instead of the lousy CVT. The SUV features a front-wheel-drive layout as standard, but an all-wheel-drive system is also available on all the trims. Infiniti has also introduced a new top-of-the-line trim called Autograph that feels plush and luxurious. As for the pricing, the starting price is up by a couple of thousands. The 2022 QX60 starts at around $47,000 and goes all the way up to $63,000.
Triple Bogey! Watch A Trio of VW Golfs Take On Each Other For An Ego Boost
The folks at Carwow pit a Volkswagen triplet for a series of drag races. Three versions of the Golf – the GTI, the GTI Clubsport, and the GTD – faced each other on the drag strip. They all come with the same engine, same transmission, and same drive layout. However, different diet and power outputs are what makes this race interesting. Which Golf do you think will make a par, a birdie, and an eagle?
Can India’s First Electric Hypercar, the Azani, Really Beat the Tesla Model S Plaid?
The paradigm shift to EVs has resulted in the birth of many new companies that probably wouldn’t have had the chance if not electrification. Forget about big shots like Rivian and Bollinger; I’m talking about companies like Alpha Motors, Elation, and Electra, to name a few. Another company to climb the wagon is an Indian startup called Mean Metal Motors. MMM has taken the same course as most EV startups; build an electric hypercar. The MMM Azani comes with Model S Plaid-rivaling specs like 1,000 horses, 220 mph top speed, 0-60 mph in 2.1 seconds, etc.
Chevrolet ZRX - The Raptor and TRX-Rivalling Off-Road Performance Truck That Chevy Desperately Needs
GM has been quite active in the pickup truck space since the beginning. It has even bifurcated its trucks between two brands – Chevrolet and GMC – and combined, both of them rake up pretty good numbers. Chevy brings in more sales as opposed to GMC and has managed to keep up with Ford and Ram in terms of models and trim levels on each of them. It even announced an electric Silverado that could arrive in a couple of years. However, the automaker has lagged in the case of a performance off-road truck. There are Silverado trims with off-roading prowess, but there’s no standalone model like the Ford F-150 Raptor and the Ram 1500 TRX.
There were rumors of Chevy working on one such product, but there’s still no concrete detail. It was rumored to be called the ZRX, but those were mere speculations. Chevy had trademarked the ‘ZRX’ moniker sometime back, but there seems to be no development on that front thus far. Is the automaker missing out on something big by not offering a performance off-road truck to the market? We sure think so.
Tesla Model S Plaid Sets A New Quarter-Mile World Record For A Production Car... Again!
The Tesla Model S Plaid is the talk of the town these days and it needs no introduction. It is the fastest production car and has been dominating drag strips all around the globe. From spanking the Nissan GT-R’s ass to obliterating a Porsche Taycan Turbo S, the only real competition it has faced so far was from a remote control car!
To further cement its legacy as the quarter-mile king, the Model S Plaid has beaten its own record within a couple of months of setting a record. This time, it recorded a time of 9.081 seconds! The way it’s going, this record might also be broken soon.
The Acura NSX Type S Will Mark the End of an Era
After being on the market for half-a-decade, Acura has decided to pull the plug on the NSX. However, the model will receive a last hoorah in the form of a Type S model. Acura announced that the NSX Type S will be unveiled at the Monterey Car Week in the coming week. It will be limited to 350 examples, 300 of which will be available for the U.S. This will be the first time an NSX Type S is being sold outside Japan.
Watch The Porsche Taycan Turbo S Get Schooled By The Tesla Model S Plaid On The Drag Strip
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is the most powerful Taycan you can buy today. The car is even more powerful than the Taycan model that currently holds the record for being the fastest four-door EV on the Nurburgring. But, after enjoying dominance for some time, the Taycan Turbo S is finally down and under, courtesy of the Tesla Model S Plaid. The Plaid comes with unbelievable specs and it was only a matter of time before it faced the Taycan Turbo S. The folks at DragTimes got these two quick and fast beasts on the drag strip for some quarter-mile runs only for the German to get see a set of taillights in every single race. Dominating fuel-powered supercars is one thing, but humiliating a really quick $200,000 EV? That’s just ludicrous (pun intended).
2021 Ferrari F8 Tributo N-Largo by Novitec
Ferrari launched the F8 Tributo as the 488 GTB’s successor in 2019. It came with the 488 Pista’s drivetrain and underpinnings, but slot itself as an entry-level supercar, unlike the track-ready model. German aftermarket company Novitec quickly snapped the 2020 model year of the F8 Tributo and came out with its own iteration of it, which consisted of a body kit, new wheels, an engine tune-up, etc. Seeing the popularity, Novitec came up with one for the 2021 F8 Tributo as well.
Now, the company has come another version of the 2021 F8 Tributo called the F8 N-Largo. This limited-edition model comes with a new set of wheels, an engine upgrade, and a widebody kit.
Can An R8 Beat The Most Powerful Audi, The RS e-Tron GT, In Straight-Line Races?
Audi is arguably the most proactive company that’s adopting electrification. The company has many all-electric vehicles in its portfolio already, and one of them is the RS e-Tron GT. The RS e-Tron GT is the most powerful Audi vehicle that you can buy today. The folks at Carwow pit this beast against a car that can be considered its fuel-powered alter-ego, the Audi R8. Do you think the Audi R8 can defeat the RS e-Tron GT in a series of races?
When An F1 Car Takes On A Tuned Lamborghini Huracan and a Tuned Nissan GT-R, It’s Nothing But Chaos!
The folks at Carwow uploaded yet another drag racing video, but this time threw an unusual contender in the mix against two supercars. The Lamborghini Huracan and the Nissan GT-R are pit against a Formula 1 car on the drag strip! To make sure things aren’t lopsided, the Huracan and the GT-R are tuned to make 1,200- and 1,300 horses combined! Do they stand a chance against the F1 car?
2022 McLaren 765LT Spider
McLaren has followed up on the 765LT by introducing a drop-top version called the 765LT Spider. The 765LT came out as the range-topping model in the company’s Super Series family. It shared its DNA with the 720S, but made more power, came with an aero-focused body, and featured a lot of carbon fiber components. The 765LT Spider is a convertible version of this beast and is limited to 765 examples, just like the standard coupe. It will start at a shade under $400,000.
The Ford Bronco Is No Match For The Jeep Wrangler 4xe In Drag Races
The Ford Bronco has been at the Wrangler’s throat ever since it was conceptualized. Targeted to take it on from all the sides, the Bronco came out all guns blazing. However, Jeep has made some smart and methodical strikes to some of Bronco’s most vulnerable areas that have skewed the results back in balance. For starters, there was the announcement of the V-8 Wrangler hours before the Bronco’s much-anticipated debut. Then there was the adoption of electrification in the form of the Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid. While you can get the V-8 conversion, you can’t get a plug-in hybrid setup installed on the Bronco, thus giving the edge to the Jeep product.
While the off-roading prowess of the Bronco is as good as – if not better – than the Wrangler 4xe, the on-road performance is not. To test this out, the folks at The Fast Lane Car decided to test this out by pitting the two for a series of straight-line races.
This 85-Horsepower Superkart Almost Put A 710-Horsepower Ferrari 488 Pista To Shame
The Ferrari 488 Pista is no joke. It makes over 700 horses from its V-8 mill and can sprint to 60 mph from rest in under three seconds. With these specs, you’d expect it to take on the best of the best in straight-line races. But, ‘Driven Media’ had other thoughts and decided to pit it against an unlikely competitor – a superkart. On paper, it’s no match to the Prancing Horse, but on the drag strip, the Ferrari faced stiff competition from it. Sounds insane, doesn’t it?
This Vertical Climb Shows You Exactly How Impressive The Rivian R1S Is Off The Road!
Rivian has been around for a long time now and we know almost everything about its upcoming products, the R1S SUV and the R1T pickup truck. They are essentially the same product in two different body styles. While the deliveries of the products have still not begun, Rivian has been teasing a lot of new specs and technology lately. The company’s CEO, RJ Scaringe, recently tweeted a 25-second video of the R1S successfully attempting a steep climb in Moab, Utah. Now, whether you like it or not, this is mighty impressive!
We Now Have Proof That Tesla Is Trying to Dethrone the Porsche Taycan At The Nürburgring
Tesla was quite active at the Green Hell before the Covid hit us, but it seems like it’s back there again; this time, with a prototype of the Model S Plaid. The only logical explanation for the red prototype to be there is it gunning for a record lap. The company had unofficially set a record back in 2019, but is back two years later to set another record that could possibly be an official attempt to dethrone the Porsche Taycan. Exciting stuff, isn’t it?
Superwagon vs Hot Sedan: Watch The Audi RS6 Take On The BMW M550i In Straight-line Races
The Audi RS6 is a supercar trapped in a family-hauler’s body. The V-8 engine makes 600 horses in this iteration and can sprint to 60 mph from rest in under four seconds! The wagon has proved time and again that you can have just one vehicle that can do family and work duties during the week and fulfill the adrenaline cravings over the weekends. It again arrived at a drag strip, courtesy of CarWow, to take on a sedan that’s overshadowed by the BMW M5 – the M550i. The M550i is a tamed version of the M5 and doesn’t get enough recognition. But, here’s a chance for the car to prove itself against a recognized drag strip champion, the Audi RS6. Which German do you think will win?
Believe It or Not, Toyota Won’t Let You Resell Your 2022 Land Cruiser 300!
Toyota launched the 13th-gen Land Cruiser a couple of months back. Moniker’d the Land Cruiser 300, this new generation succeeds the Land Cruiser 200 that was in production for 14 years. It is, however, forbidden fruit in the U.S. as the company has pulled the plug on it here. Just as the hype of the new SUV was dying down, a report by Creative311 has brought it back to the headlines.
According to the publication, Toyota is asking the owners not to sell their SUV within 12 months of purchase, citing global security. In fact, the company is even making the owners sign the dotted line and make it a contractual agreement. How about that!
2021 Brabus 800 - The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Receives The Brabus Treatment
Earlier this month, Brabus revealed its latest creation based on the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S coupé – the Brabus 800. The German tuner has given it a typical Brabus treatment. It comes with a black exterior, big wheels, oodles of carbon fiber elements and components, and of course, a power boost.
