First Walkaround Video Shows Just How Awesome The McLaren Artura Is
When McLaren woke up from its sleep in 2010 and started churning out fantastic supercars, some said it will only be temporary. One decade later, McLaren is still doing its thing, combining sleek-looking, low-slung cars with insane performance. With the Artura, the supercar maker managed to prove yet another thing: it is not afraid to switch it up every now and then just as it is not afraid to play with new tech.

Chevy Might Fix That Annoying Array Of Buttons In The C8 Corvette After All
After it debuted with much fanfare in 2019 for the 2020 model year, the mid-engine Chevy C8 Corvette started to reach customers and while post-sales reviews were pretty much stellar, the sports car quickly started to attract criticism as far as its interior goes.
We bring good news, though. If a recent report is true, then Chevrolet is brewing an interior revamp for the C8 Vette and it is slated to arrive in 2022 for the 2023 model year.

BMW CEO Casts Shade All Over Elon Musk and Tesla
Tesla can be credited for igniting this full-on electric car movement we’ve been witnessing over the past couple of years, with Dieselgate acting as a catalyzer for Volkswagen AG but also for other German brands, BMW included.
Well-established carmakers have been on a spending spree trying to develop electric powertrains and EVs and BMW CEO Oliver Zipse believes they will soon catch up with Tesla and even get ahead of it.

The 2022 Mercedes C-Class Is Bringing S-Class Tech To The Middle Class
The C-Class is to Mercedes-Benz what the 3 Series is to BMW. That is best demonstrated by the amount of tech Stuttgart poured into the new C-Class via the S-Class flagship. Here’s everything you need to know about the new 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is expected to hit U.S. showrooms in early 2022.
The Cupra Formentor VZ5 Is All Audi Heart With Cupra Design
Jay Leno’s 2002 Pontiac Firebird WS6 Reminds Us That The Early 2000s Were Pretty Awesome
The Pontiac Firebird is one of the unsung heroes among American sports cars. In fact, Motorweek said in a review from 1998 that the Trans Am was the synonym of “Corvette performance for a minivan price.” The reason for that? For 1998, Pontiac fitted its sports car with a 305-horsepower LS1 engine.
HRE’s New Wheels Look Amazing On Your Favorite Cars, Including The New Porsche 911 GT3
HRE has been re-engineering the wheel for about four decades, a period that allowed the American wheel maker to specialize and elevate its products. Recently, HRE unveiled new versions of its Vintage, Classic, and 540 Series wheels which it mounted on modern supercars. The result is exquisite to say the least.
This Alpine A110 Almost Sounds Like an F1 Car
This Custom Mid-Engine Mini Is the Definition of a Pocket Rocket
This Rendering Has Us Convinced That an Off-Road Bugatti Chiron Needs to Happen
The Chiron has so far served as base for quite some limited-edition Bugattis. You’ve got the La Voiture Noire, the Centodieci, the Divo, and the Bolide. True to the carmaker’s heritage, these are either honoring past models or Bugatti’s motorsport ties. However, this fan-made design study takes the French brand where it never went before: off-roading.
What Is Maserati Trying To Show Us In These "Official Spy Shots" Of The Grecale?
Firstly, this "official spyshots" game is lame. We don’t know where it started from, but it has spread like wildfire and for the sake of the hype, carmakers are dropping camouflaged teasers of their cars left, right, and center.
Secondly, Maserati is brewing a second SUV/crossover and by the looks of it, this new model going to slot under the Levante and keep some of its styling cues, albeit in a shrunken format.
Chip Foose Shows Us What the C8 Corvette Should Have Looked Like
2019 was the year that marked a big breakthrough for Chevy and the Corvette. The sports car’s engine finally transitioned to the middle, after long decades of experiments but not fruition.
The C8 looks more like a supercar than ever – mind, you though, it is no Ferrari. In our book, the mid-engined Corvette is just not quite up to the sexiness of the C7. Sure, it’s all down to subjectiveness and the fact that it’s somewhat easier to get the proportions right in a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive configuration. Of course, we’re not saying that the new C8 looks bad or anything: it’s just that we like Chip Foose’s take better.
This Porsche Cayenne Turbo Safari From Flat Six Is a True Off-Road Performance Machine
You don’t have to take our word for it that the first-gen Porsche Cayenne is a darn good off-roader without any aftermarket bits and bobs attached to it. YouTube is your friend here.
However, imagine what would a 2004 Cayenne be able to pull off on rough terrain if someone prepared it for such challenges. Oh, wait, it happened, because Canada’s Flat Six has built a Cayenne that’s bordering into motorsport territory - at least as far as looks go.
2023 BMW 7 Series
The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class is nothing but a declaration of high-tech war aimed at its two main rivals, the Audi A8 and the 7 Series. BMW’s flagship received a hefty facelift in 2019 for the 2020 model year and other than the enlarged grille, it got a tech upgrade, including BMW’s then-new iDrive 7.0 setup. However, you can only stay relevant for a short time in the current luxury car climate and with the S-Class making no rebates on the technology front, BMW is already working on the next-generation 7er. Here’s everything we know so far.
An Electric Audi R8 E-Tron May Eventually Happen, But The Question Is When?
While Audi did make an all-electric R8 which it showed at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the project was so short lived that come 2016, Audi decided to scrap it altogether. It didn’t even get the chance to have its own configurator and back then, Audi was asking around €1 million ($1,1 million) for one unit.
Will The BMW M4 CSL Bring Enough Fight To Combat the Porsche 911 GT3?
The 862-Horsepower Subaru WRX STI From Gymkhana Was a Masterpiece of Modern Engineering
We can safely say that each and every Gymkhana car used so far in the installment was downright bonkers. No exception. However, as Ken Block traded places with Travis Pastrana for Gymkhana 2020, Subaru responded by dialing up the WRX STI to eleven… thousand.
Now We’re Convinced That BMW Needs to Build an M4 Shooting Brake
2022 Porsche 911 GT3 Just Redefined What It Means to Be a Road-Going Track Car
This New Lotus E-R9 Endurance Racer Concept Is, Without A Doubt, The Future
The wind of change is blowing over Lotus. The British sports car maker is cleaning up its range to make room for a new entry and the Evija all-electric hypercar is just some whiskers away from making its market debut. And it looks like when they’re not working hard on production models, Lotus’ designers have the green light to work on concept cars such as the E-R9.
The Vector W8 Is The Craziest Supercar Ever Made
Back in the 1990s, small supercar manufacturers looking to steal a pie slice from the likes of Lamborghini and Ferrari had to come up with audacious designs just to enjoy some attention. Case in point: the outrageous W8, developed by California-based Vector.
Driving A Legendary Rally Icon in Assetto Corsa (Subaru Impreza 22B)
These days, well-preserved Subaru Impreza 22Bs get sold for as much as $370,000. And for good reason. The 22B is one of the rarest Subies out there, simply because it was a special, road-legal interpretation of Subaru’s Impreza WRX rally car fitted with a larger engine, a widebody kit, and gold-painted wheels.
Restoring This Classic Range Rover Required a Ridiculous Amount of Work
This Porsche 356 Restomod on a 911 Chassis Is Exactly What Porsche Needs to Do
The year was 1948 when the first car to wear the Porsche logo left the assembly line in Gmund, Austria. Named the 356, the roadster was fitted with a 1.1-liter air-cooled flat-four engine borrowed from Volkswagen which cranked out about 35 horsepower.
The 356 is the car that paved the way for the 911 and in an interesting plot twist, it’s a 911 chassis that might bring to life the 356, albeit in restomod version.

2021 Mercedes-Benz EQA - Quick Review
First was the EQC and now Mercedes-Benz is writing another file in its all-electric history with the GLAbased EQA. At some point in the future, the Germans will release an EV version of the S-Class, dubbed EQS. Until that happens, let’s take a closer look at the EQA.
Now You Can See What The Bugatti Centodieci Looks Like Under The Pretty Body Work
Only ten Centodiecis are going to be assembled and each of them is paying a tribute to Romano Artioli and Giampaolo Benedini, the two minds behind the mind-boggling Bugatti EB110.
Even if Bugatti had the right platform for the Centodieci thanks to the Chiron’s underpinnings, developing a limited run hypercar that had to trigger sweet memories of the EB110 was no easy task.
Porsche Could Be Working on a New Gas-Powered Sports Car With Gullwing Doors and Split Rear Glass
This isn’t the first time we’ve been intrigued by a patent filed by a given carmaker. Remember when Toyota submitted a patent for a streamlined vehicle that had a propeller mounted to its rear? Well, Porsche’s latest idea is way cooler and more down-to-Earth, as it involves gullwing doors.
Elon Musk and SpaceX Should Send This Hyundai Tiger Concept to Mars
Named TIGER, Hyundai’s latest concept isn’t about a fancy all-electric urban stroller meant to save the dolphins. In fact, TIGER stands for Transforming Intelligent Ground Excursion Robot and it doesn’t need a human presence to car its way through difficult terrain.
The 2022 Audi E-Tron Is More Than A Porsche Taycan In An Audi Costume
It took a while but Audi finally unveiled its all-electric sports car and it’s actually derived into two variants. You’ve got the more civilian Audi e-tron GT and the higher-performance RS e-tron GT, both looking like they came out of the concept car shop.
We Bet You Didn’t Realize How Much Effort BMW Made to Make the M3 and M4 Sound Amazing
While BMW isn’t even thinking about dropping its current design approach (ahem, the bucktooth grille) on some of its sports car, Munich has been hard at work promoting the new M3/M4 via a mini-series of videos that focus on the performance sedan’s and coupe’s features.
This time around, we’re getting schooled on how and why the new M3 and M4 sound the way they do.
The Best Wall-Climbing RC Cars
RC cars have evolved a lot since the first of their kind hit the toy stores. Nowadays, you’ve got your off-road RC cars, your supercar-inspired RC cars, and as of late, wall-climbing RC cars. Here are some of the most interesting ones currently available on Amazon.
2022 Audi RS3 Sedan
Audi launched the new A3 a while ago, which was soon followed by the S3. Obviously, the S3 is here to bridge the gap between the pedestrian A3 and the out-and-out hot hatch that is the RS3. Here is all we know up to this point about Ingolstadt’s incoming compact rocket.
A new set of spy pictures proves that Audi is hard at work perfecting the RS3 recipe before the premium hot hatch is finally out of the oven. When that happens, the RS3 is expected to hit the market with a tweaked version of Audi’s 2.5-liter, five-cylinder turbo gasoline mill that powers the current RS3 and RS Q3, meaner looks, and an even higher-quality interior.
2021 Ford Mustang GT500CR by Classic Recreations
We had just stopped drooling over SpeedKore’s Hellraiser when Classic Recreations came in smashing through the door with the carbon fiber-bodied 1967 Shelby GT500CR Mustang.
The build was announced in September 2020 as an extremely limited run of just 25 units and we are glad to report that it is finally here. With a little help from SpeedKore, that is.
The Elation Freedom Is Actually Going to Happen!
SpeedKore’s Dodge Charger Hellraiser Is Built For Kevin Hart
It has been a while since we last heard about SpeedKore and in a way, the whole waiting paid off. The Wisconsin-based custom shop that used to delight our eyes at SEMA has been brewing something over the past months and now it is finally out. Meet the SpeedKore Dodge Charger Hellraiser built specifically for comedian and actor Kevin Hart.
The Cupra Formentor VZ5 Could Have the Heart of An Audi RS Q3
The Formentor, Cupra’s first proprietary vehicle since it has parted ways with SEAT, can be currently had with a wide range of powertrains, including diesel, gasoline, and plug-in hybrid tech. None of these, however, will have the appeal of the recently teased Formentor VZ5, which is rumored to receive Audi’s 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine.
2021 Cupra Leon
The 2021 Cupra Leon is the performance version of SEAT’s Leon compact hatchback. Just like the regular Leon, it is offered as a wagon under the Sportstourer moniker.
The Cupra Leon, be it the hatchback or the estate, can be had with a plug-in hybrid powertrain geared for performance as well as a bunch of exterior and interior styling cues to set it apart from its more pedestrian-looking peer. Here is all you need to know about the Cupra Leon.
The HGK Supra Eurofighter Is A Prime Example of What Drift Cars Are Meant To Be
Latvia-based HGK has a long repertoire of drift car projects, most of which BMWs (think E92s and E46s). Every now and then, however, HGK likes to switch it up and massage Japanese sports car as well. Case in point: this rad looking Supra.
PS: It has a 2JZ engine.
Bugatti and the Bolide - Stepping Outside the Box
With the Bolide, Bugatti virtually took the W-16, 8-liter engine and developed an ultra-light body around it. And while modern Bugattis and the term ‘ultra-light’ do not go hand in hand, the Bolide fits the description, as it tips the scales at just 1,240 kilos (2,734 pounds).
Sure, it is so easy to take things for granted these days, and simply expect such contraptions to simply happen from a brand like Bugatti. However, the truth is that, in developing the Bolide, Bugatti had to give its absolute best.
This 7-Year-Old Independent Design Study Would Make An Amazing BMW Hypercar Today!
Although the M1 was the first and last BMW supercar to roam the streets, it is fair to say that the Bavarians have made up for not offering a similar-minded successor with the sheer amount of grunt packed by their M-badged contraptions - think the new M5 CS, for example.
Obviously, the i8 cannot be counted as a supercar, however, this design study would fit the bill rather nicely.

2021 SCG 003S
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus – aka SCG – knows a thing or two about racing. So, when they say the SCG 003S is a race car for the road, something we hear way too often these days, you can bet that is exactly what they mean.
Developed with the expertise gained from racing at Le Mans or the Nurburgring, the SCG 003S is hand-built from the ground up in Sleepy Hollow, New York. And as you can imagine, it is nothing to sneeze at. Let us take a closer look.
The TVR Griffith Might Just Happen After All
Announced with great celebrations at Goodwood Revival back in 2017, the same year TVR celebrated its 70th birthday, the reborn Griffith sports car gradually fell into a cone of shadow after a series of delays and it got to a point where it completely went off radar for the past two years.
Put in front of this sizzle and no steak situation, we, just like you, thought the project was dumped. Apparently, that is not the case as a new loan keeps TVR on track to delivering the second-gen Griffith.
Explore The Challenges In Perfecting the Aerodynamic Prowess of the Rimac C Two
The McLaren Artura, A Successor To the 570S, Will Be Revealed On February 16
McLaren is hard at work brewing a new supercar. It is called the Artura and it will replace the 570S in the Sports Series range. However, the Artura bears quite the importance for McLaren as it is going to pack the brand’s first twin-turbo V-6 and hybrid tech.
The New Tesla Model S’ Yoke-Like Half Steering Wheel Probably Isn’t Going To Happen
Last week’s biggest news came from yours truly Tesla, who announced that the Model S and X will be going under the scalpel for much-needed nip and tuck. The highlight of said nip and tuck was the yoke-style steering wheel which is certainly an enticing feature for Tesla die-hards and at the same time, something that might not see fruition.
The BMW M5 CS Has The Best Weight-to-Power Ratio Of Any M Car On The Planet
Now that BMW’s new hyper-sedan is out in the wild, pundits can finally shed the speculation aside and focus on the M5 CS’ impressive spec sheet. One such outlet is Bimmer Today, which found out that the new M5 derivative sports the best power-to-weight ratio of all M cars ever built.
Big Surprise: New Tesla Roadster Delayed Until At Least 2022
Tesla had another moment of internet glory and hype as the Interwebs were filled with interior renders of the revised Model S and Model X. Specifically, it was the yoke-style steering wheel that caught everyone’s attention, even though it might not make it into production.
However, not everything is milk and sugar for the EV maker and its fan/customer base as the Roadster has been hit with a delay.
If Lamborghini Really Wants People to Off-Road The Urus, It Should Look Like This
Back when Lamborghini was still teasing the Urus, we were served with a video that showcased the SUV’s Sabbia mode. By the way, Sabbia is the Italian word for sand. For the video, Lamborghini took a pre-production to Dubai, where it was let loose to raise clouds of dust to our entertainment.
Since then, the Urus has established itself a top seller in Lambo’s range and we are willing to bet that no customer took it off the beaten path. Not with the intent to genuinely punish it, that it. Which might change if this digitally rendered off-road kit gets made.
You Can’t Buy A Nissan 400Z (Z Proto) Yet, But You Can Still Buy a 2020 370Z
With the 370Z’s successor pretty much revealed, there’s a sense of anticipation to when will Nissan finally put its long-serving sports car to sleep for good. As it turns out, the 370Z’s demise will be a gradual one as the sports car won’t be axed right away. Instead, Nissan decided not to offer a 2021 370Z, which means the latest you can buy is the 2020 model year.
The Refreshed 2021 Tesla Model S Is One Step Closer to Spaceship Status
When Tesla shut down production on the Model X and S lines in December 2020, rumors started swirling that the company is looking to revamp its two EVs. This time, the rumors were true and here we are looking at the refreshed Model S and its new yoke-style steering wheel.
Let Magnus Walker Teach You About the Lamborghini Espada and Ferrari 308 GT4
You don’t need us to tell you who Magnus Walker is, however, you might want to know that he’s part of this gig with Hagerty where he scours the car world in the search for future classics. The YouTube show is called The Next Big Thing with Magnus Walker (obviously) and it’s rapidly turning into one of our all-time favorites.
These U.K.-Delivered Lamborghini Sians Are Downright Gorgeous
Sian, the Lamborghini that’s been named after the Bolognese-dialect word for lightning, is the carmaker’s first step towards electrification. Other than its intricate hybrid internals, the Sian is also a jolly joy to look at as highlighted by these pictures.
The BMW M5 CS Is Enriched With Carbon Fiber And It’s As Fast As a Supercar
So far, BMW has been industriously churning out CS versions of the M2, M3, and M4. Which means a CS-badged BMW M5 was always on the cards. Well, what we all could suspect finally happened and the 2022 BMW M5 CS is here as the fastest and most powerful car ever built by BMW M.
This Is a REAL and ONLY Factory-Built Bulletproof Porsche 911
We don’t know about you, but whenever the words ‘bulletproof’ and ‘car’ are joined together, our minds immediately flash nameplates such as the Range Rover, BMW X5, 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, you get the point.
Heck, the business of adding ballistic protection to a given car is so lucrative that there are companies that manage to take the vehicle to the extreme – think of Rezvani and their Wrangler-based Tank.
On that note, we never thought Porsche would go this route. However, it did, for a one-time project that involved a 996-gen 911 Carrera.
Lotus Confirms A New Sports Car At The Expense of The Elise, Exige, and Evora
2021 will be the last production year for three Lotus cars, as the carmaker will be axing the likes of Elise, Exige, and Evora. Fret not, though, Lotus is not going anywhere. In fact, these three new aging cars will be replaced by a new sports car developed on a modern platform.
Everything You Need to Know About The Mercedes-AMG GT
Every premium carmaker that has a history and a present in racing likes to translate some of the motorsport knowledge it possesses into a road car. Mercedes-Benz and subsequently Mercedes-AMG have done just that with the GT. Everything about the GT has been designed and developed with performance in mind, from the base model to the blistering fast Black Series. Here’s what you need to know about the AMG GT.
This Rendering of the Bentley EXP8 Exposes What The Bentayga Should Have Been
After dropping the Mulsanne from its lineup, it’s highly unlikely that Bentley is pondering to introduce a second SUV. In fact, why would it? The Bentayga is racking in big profit for Bentley and it will continue to do so for at least three or four years, as it was recently offered a mid-career revamp.
The Praga R1 Track-Only Racer Has 365 HP But Is On Par With a McLaren 765LT
Praga Cars, Czech Republic’s race car specialist, has just unwrapped the new R1 racer in anticipation to the 2021 season. It features a larger fuel tank and essential tweaks to the body and suspension which Praga says will make it an even fiercer corner-carver on the track, where the R1 belongs and thrives.
BMW Has Gone Out Of Its Way To Make the i4 Sedan a Driver’s Car
BMW is dropping more info on the incoming i4 all-electric four-door and in doing so, it pledges allegiance to top-notch performance - something that’s been at the core of the brand since day one - beyond the mundane straight-line sprint. What this basically mean is that even when the road gets twisty, the new i4 should handle like a dream.
BMW M Electrification Is Coming, And It Is Happening Sooner Than You Think
By the end of the year, we might witness the debut of BMW M’s first-ever all-electric car. We’re not the ones saying it, it’s BMW itself. Even so, there are a lot of unknown puzzle pieces and before more official info comes our way, here’s what we know so far about BMW M’s plans to electrify, partially of totally, its range.
This Self-Driving Toyota Supra Drift Car Aims For a Safer Future
We’re all familiar with Toyota’s TRD (Toyota Racing Development). Other than looking to squeeze the best performance out of its cars for off-road or track use, the Japanese carmaker is also running TRI.
TRI stands for Toyota Research Institute, a division founded in 2016 which allows the Japanese brand to channel its efforts on making cars a safer place. Within TRI, Toyota is developing the Guardian, an automated safety system that learns how to spot a dangerous situation and react in due time. Right now, this advanced form of AI is learning how to drift a Supra.
2021 Toyota Supra 2.0
We all know an love - well, not all - the A90 Supra and its 3-liter inline-six mill which, yes, comes from BMW, the co-developer of the Supra-Z4 project.
One year after the Supra’s unveil, Toyota decided to come up with a lighter, cheaper, and presumably equally fun version that’s animated by a four-cylinder mill. Turbocharging is still on the table, as well as a lighter platform for even nippier on-road behavior, despite the natural drop in power. Here’s all you need to know about the 2021 Toyota GR Supra 2.0.
To Compete With Tesla, The Porsche Taycan Just Got Cheaper - If You’re Willing To Sacrifice
The rear-wheel-driven Porsche Taycan comes to join the likes of Taycan Turbo S, Turbo, and 4S. It’s also the entry-level Taycan and the fourth variant on sale. Customers can opt for one of the two available battery sizes and Porsche says we should see the new variant in showrooms by the middle of March 2021.
GM Struggles To Build Reliable Cars, Thinks You’ll Trust Riding In Its One-Man Drones
Despite not being as flashy as previous editions, this year’s Consumer Electronics Show aka CES still spawned some rad, futuristic concepts that, unfortunately, have every chance in the world of being nothing more than that.
For example, GM showed two prototypes at CES 2021 - one for land transportation and one for air travel.
You’ve Never Seen The 2021 Toyota Supra Look This Good - Video
There are cars that are meant to be driven properly and there are cars that most often than not, act like very expensive enhancers for the driver’s ego. Just like its predecessor, the A90 Toyota Supra falls in the first category.
Nevermind BMW’s involvement in the project and those arguing the new Supra isn’t as charming as the model it replaces and not a Toyota anymore. Come sunset, the new Supra looks best with a thick layer of mud on its hips and a couple hundred more miles added to the odometer.
2021 Hyundai Elantra N TCR
Like the other TCR cars before it, the Elantra N TCR is a race car you can’t get to drive on public roads. It has been developed to serve private racing teams and it’s underpinned by the popular Elantra sedan; although not much is carried over from the original car except the chassis and well, the name.
Let Jay Jeno Tell You About This 1931 Bentley 8-Litre Mulliner Sedan
The Bentley 8 Liter came to life during uncertain times. One year before its debut, the Wall Street Crash of 1929 hit and come 1930, its effects were still rippling through the world economy. That’s why Bentley assembled just 100 units of the 8 Liter in a two-year span, between 1930 and 1932.
2021 Cupra el-Born
The SEAT brand we know now is very different from the SEAT we knew a decade ago. The wind of transformation has been blowing over the Volkswagen Group-owned carmaker lately and SEAT has been enjoying a new life thanks to a revised lineup brimming with good-looking cars.
In the process, the Cupra nameplate - used to designate the sportiest models of the SEAT bunch - evolved into a standalone brand and without wasting any time, it has come up with an electric car, albeit with a little help from the VW ID.3. Let’s check out the Cupra el-Born EV.
2021 Toyota GR Super Sport
2020 didn’t suck entirely for the car world, and other than the usual suspects, we were teased with a handful of upcoming hypercars. For example, Toyota took to Le Mans to unveil its first-ever hypercar in front of the public.
While unveil is a big word, really - we only saw a heavy-camouflaged prototype lapping the Circuit de la Sarthe track, the presentation came with a couple of specs and numbers. Until Toyota decides to fully loosen its lips on the topic, here’s all we know so far about the GR Super Sport hypercar.
The New Manual M4 Is Heavier, And We Blame That Ungodly Grille
When it’s not concocting videos of synthetically added Lamborghini V-10 sounds to its M2 sports car, BMW is hard at work educating the public on the new M3 and M4 performance brothers.
In a recent video posted by BMW M on YouTube, we get to find out that the current M4 fitted with a manual is heavier than the previous M4 fitted with the dual-clutch transmission.
The Hyundai Kona N Is Happening, And Its Performance Might Surprise You!
Ignore the "official" spy photos provided by Hyundai. Ever carmaker is in that game today, as lame as it may be. However, it shows that the Koreans are hard at work trying to ready the spicier Kona N for its debut. To keep the hype up, they’ve published the said set of pictures and new spec-related details.
Since When Are Big Screens a Mark of Luxury in Cars?
The leaps forward taken by technology in the past decade have brought us closer, literally, to screens. You’ve got one in your living room, one in your pocket, one on your desk, and most likely, you’ve got one inside your car, too. Almost every daily activity of the modern man - from work, to shopping, and then on to entertainment - involves a screen of sorts, be it from a smartphone, a TV, or a car’s infotainment system.
In recent years, the later has become a norm in almost every new car out there. Higher-echelon car brands in particular have been very eager to fit their cars with screens, especially of the larger, wide, or curbed variety. So we can only ask: are these big displays bleeding with top-notch graphics a mark of luxury in the automotive world?
Honda Will Electrify Its Entire Euro Lineup in 2022 - Here’s What That Means For The Civic Type R
That car the industry is slowly but steadily shifting to electrified powertrains is not a novel trend anymore. Almost every echelon, from the budget-friendly sub-compact to the alien-looking supercar is getting either a hybrid or an out-and-out EV these days.
Honda, for example, wants to field a fully electrified lineup - made of hybrids and EVs - by 2022 in Europe, as emissions standards are becoming more and more strict. This, however, won’t affect the incoming Civic Type R, which is good. For now. At the same time, the new Type R might become the last Honda to feature a pure-gasoline powertrain.
The First In-Depth Look At The McLaren Sabre Will Rub You In All The Right Ways
The Sabre is McLaren’s most powerful non-hybrid supercar, only 15 units are slated for production, and it was built by MSO. Can it get more special than that? Well, yes. The answer is yes.
Rumor has it that the McLaren Sabre can hit 218 mph. We’re not surprised, given that it looks like the Senna and the Speedtail had a child. However, there’s more than meets the eye.
Everything You Need to Know About The McLaren Senna
Named after beloved Brazilian F1 driver Ayrton Senna, the McLaren Senna is an Ultimate Series model sharing apex predator status with the likes of Elva, P1, and Speedtail in the British supercar maker’s lineup.
At the same time, the Senna is part of a new breed of supercars that feature F1-derived technology, so it’s basically a competitor for the likes of Mercedes-AMG One and Aston Martin Valkyrie. As a result, it’s brimming with features that make it both unique and a beast on the road or on the track. Stick around for an in-depth run-through of the Senna’s quirks and specs.
The Renault R5 - A Legendary Hatchback You Probably Forgot All About
There are moments when a carmaker’s ambitions go way beyond its financial or technological powers. But in pursuing said ambitions, only a select few companies managed to overcome any difficulties and deliver amazing car.
Take Renault, for example. Back in the late 70s and early 80s, the French firm simply couldn’t afford to fully develop a rally race car from the ground up. So it had to work with what it had, in this case the humble Renault 5, which through massive modding gave the raucous Renault R5 Turbo.
Chris Forsberg’s 370Z Rally Car Tribute: Sideways Gravel Shreds!
Believe it or not, Nissan is no stranger to rally racing. Back in 1996, the Japanese company raced at the Paris-Dakar Rally with a modded Terrano, albeit with zero success.
However, back in 1970, Nissan took a Datsun Bluebird 510 and made it into a rally car - dubbed the 1600SS - that won the East-African Safari Rally. One year after, in 1971, Nissan came back with a safari-style version of the 240Z. It, too, won the rally. That particular car is celebrated today with a one-off build based on the 370Z.

Here’s Proof That Cadillac Should Revive The XLR Name
Bringing back dead car monikers is way easier today than it was not so many years ago. You’ve got a lot of internet-based pixel manipulators with a knack for cars and more often than not, the results are drool-worthy. Sometimes, however, they’re just downright eccentric and polarizing.

You Have To See This Ridiculous Looking Toyota Supra Concept Rendering
There isn’t a shortage of means to customize your Toyota Supra. The variety of widebody kits and performance tune-ups can please even the most demanding customer but it’s most often than not a rad design study that fully captures our attention.
Now, while 911s turned into off-road trailblazers are quite a common sight these days, safari-style Supras are still to be invented. This design study might make a good starting point, actually.

When the new A90 Supra finally hit the shelves, some frowned and some jumped for joy. Those who frowned backed up their naysaying with the argument that the MK V Supra is nothing else than a rebadged BMW Z4, while of those who stood up and applauded, a good chunk was relishing the opportunity to see mad tuning projects based on Toyota’s revived sports car.
McLaren Stands Firm On SUV Philosophy But Sees Hybrid Technology As A Necessity
It’s true that the addition of one or more SUVs/crossovers to their lineups has saved a handful of carmakers. Porsche is the best example here, as it can still make the wonderful 911 due to the likes of Cayenne and Macan. For others, SUVs just boosted sales to new heights. Lamborghini is the best example here, as it now sells as many Urus SUVs as it does Huracans and Aventadors combined.
