Assistant Content Manager - Automotive Expert - tudor@topspeed.com
Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.

Tudor was lucky enough to be in Wales just as Sebastien Loeb was securing his 8th World Rally Championship title during Wales Rally GB 2011 and wrote a guest blog for ITV News covering the rally atmosphere in Cardiff. It was love at first sight with rally racing and it still goes on to this moment. Tudor likes his (dream) cars beautiful, with power coming in second place.

Tudor joined the TopSpeed team in early-2019 as an automotive lifestyle editor, but his unique knowledge of cars and the automotive world in general led him to the finer aspects of more focused automotive journalism. Within a few short months, Tudor was promoted to Assistant Content Manager and now assists in content management alongside writing automotive reviews, news, and guides.

Word of advice: Avoid conversations involving hunchbacks like the BMW X5 and X6 or the Audi Q5 and Q7 unless you like being given the cold shoulder.

The TVR Griffith Might Just Happen After All

The TVR Griffith Might Just Happen After All

The future is looking better for TVR and the new Griffith

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.

The Lexus LFA Has Aged Like a Fine Wine

The Lexus LFA Has Aged Like a Fine Wine

We can all agree that the LFA still has it

Last time we heard about the LFA, there were seven of them sitting in Lexus dealerships across the U.S. looking for an owner. We are talking squeaky-new LFAs here, of which Lexus assembled just 500 units in total.

While it is hard to pinpoint why those cars are still there – some suggested promotional purposes but the LFA was introduced back in 2010 so it does not quite make sense, here is what potential buyers are missing out on by not getting those remaining LFAs.

The same flamboyant package with a Porsche motorsport design twist in and out

The answer is as complex as the supercar itself

You would think that the nameplate that wore the crown of the fastest production car on the face of the Earth does not need further introduction. In reality, the F1, a legend of the car industry and a design/engineering masterpiece, has so many cool features that it is impossible not to take them into account.

A Decade Apart: Manual 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S vs. 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera S

A Decade Apart: Manual 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S vs. 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera S

The Porsche 911 gets better by the generation and here’s the hard proof

With every new 911 generation, Porsche doesn’t forget to mention that it is the best 911 to date and equally important, the best 911 it can be at the moment of launch. This, however, doesn’t make past-gen 911s weak, for the simple reason that Porsche wholeheartedly invest all its know-how into its core sportscar, regardless of the age they came to be.

So when Throttle House dropped a video that compares the current 2020 911 to the 2010 911, our interest piqued.

"Blame" the coronavirus for this?

2020 was a big turning point in the history of mankind. Aside from the social and health-related implications of the Covid-19 pandemic, every corner of every industry has been affected and subsequently, changed – perhaps forever.

Take motorsports for example: anchored inside by lockdowns after lockdowns, race drivers had to adapt to keep training. So, they jumped inside racing simulators. Online racing competitions were created and this massive shift to the digital world is culminating with the Olympic Virtual Series – the first-ever, Olympic-license event for physical and non-physical virtual sports.

If we’re talking rare birds, this one would be the queen of them all

Its full name was the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive, and it was supposed to mark a new era for Mercedes-Benz, one that brought to market emission-free super sports cars with technology borrowed from Formula 1. Unfortunately, the all-electric SLS didn’t quite kick it for the carmaker, who would need almost a decade more to unveil the EQC, its first all-electric road car. Which happened to be an SUV, not a sports car.

Here’s all you need to know about the SLS AMG EV.

Now’s your chance to add a mint-condition American legend to your garage

On August 31, 2017, FCA shut down the Conner Assembly Plant in Michigan and the Dodge Viper was officially axed because it couldn’t meet new safety regulations.

Is the Viper dead, though? Not really. Yes, Dodge isn’t making it anymore, but the carmaker managed to sell four Vipers in 2020, according to a report by MotorTrend. While it’s unclear how those units were snagged by new owners, if you’re really looking to get your hands on a special Viper, check out this 2009 Viper ACR.

Here’s Why the 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi Is the best Scooby Ever

The Blob Eye WRX STi is still very relevant today

There was a time when carmakers rejoiced at the thought of being able to offer performance sedans to the masses. The likes of Mitsubishi and Subaru spruce to mind almost instantly, although the former has been plagued by the SUV disease and dropped the Lancer Evo altogether.

Subaru, on the other hand, is still selling the Impreza in various declinations - not WRX STi, though, which is sad. None of them, however, will give you the nostalgia like the 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi with Prodrive goodies.

Hey, Bugatti, we’re still waiting for those interior shots

2019 was the year when Bugatti unveiled the La Voiture Noir (The Black Car) in Geneva. The La Voiture Noire is a one-off model built to celebrate Bugatti’s 110th anniversary, it was sold before the public got a chance to see it, and pays respects to Ettore Bugatti’s stunning Type 57SC Atlantic, a car that disappeared from the carmaker’s workshops during the Second World War and was never found to this day.

Air-cooled 911s are held in remarkably high regard by Porschephiles and car nuts alike. In fact, they’ve established god-like status over the years, with some of that popularity coming from the work of Singer Vehicle Design. Fine examples include the 2017 Porsche 911 by Singer or the 2021 911 DLS.

Lamborghini’s LM002 was the original super-SUV. It had the looks, it had the power, and it surely had the off-road ability. While today’s SUVs and off-roaders rely on a bunch of electronic gizmos to carve their way through rough terrain, the LM002 did it with brute force. That’s what we call strong personality.

Maybe an eccentric-enough tuner can fix this?

The Pontiac GTO is one of the most underestimated muscle cars to ever roam the surface of the planet. Designed as sportier version of Pontiac’s Tempest aimed at younger buyers, the GTO debuted in 1964 with a 6.4-liter V-8. The GTO, however, never quite made it sales-wise, despite Pontiac’s attempts to spice up the recipe with the Judge trim.

Today’s sports cars and race cars are a lot more reliable than those of the previous decade. In part, this is due to advances in technology and assembly techniques, but carmakers are also more poised on torturing their cars before they finally release them on the market.

From the M Drift Analyzer to the two brake settings and the second M mode further split into Road, Sport, and Track, the new BMW M3 and M4 are brimming with geeky tech meant to boost one thing and one thing only: the driver’s pleasure. At the same time, the traction control system developed by BMW M is a brand new concept that comes to improve on the old one used in the previous M3 and M4.

The north-of-$400,000 sticker should not surprise anyone given the amount of gear this GT3 RS packs

For reasons unknown to us, Jerry Seinfeld is parting ways with one of his cars. That car is a 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS with a window sticker of $449,890, out of which more than $250,000 are optional features.

New STI Performance Parts Make the Subaru BRZ Look Menacing

The new Subaru BRZ looks rather bland. These bits and bobs will change that

You are probably aware that Toyota GR 86 and Subaru BRZ were unveiled simultaneously in Japan-spec guise not too long ago. Both sports cars are good for 232 horsepower in Japan and come with a rather toned down design language, yet Subaru is upping the ante with a set of accessories and STI performance parts aimed at those who want a spicier-looking BRZ.

The Real Truth Behind The BMW Logo

The Real Truth Behind The BMW Logo

The origin of the BMW logo has been a multi-faceted story, so allow us to dot the Is and cross the Ts

In March 2020, BMW unveiled its new logo, a flat, minimalistic version of the one it has been using since 1997. While the new design offers a cleaner version that strays away from the old-looking 3D effects and shadows, it is just the latest version of a logo that has been around since 1917 and one that triggered many controversies regarding its origin.

AMG’s Plans for the Future Are Better Than You Thought

AMG won’t abide by political correctness with its new plans, but will try to poach customers from other demographic groups

AMG has had a lot on its plate lately. Whether it was the development of a new performance-oriented hybrid powertrain developed around a twin-turbo V-8 or the brewing of a sportier EQS variant, Affalterbach has had a lot going on. Nonetheless, the change train will keep going as AMG also has some interesting targets for the future.

This Supercharged 2JZ-Swapped Toyota 86 Is Your Personal Burnout Jesus

This Supercharged 2JZ-Swapped Toyota 86 Is Your Personal Burnout Jesus

Light Toyota frame plus tough Toyota engine gets you clouds of tire smoke

Before the new Supra arrived, Toyota’s solely purpose-built sports car was the 86 (or GT86 or FT86 or Subaru BRZ or Scion FR-S, if you wish). In the U.S., the 2020 86 makes 200 or 205 horsepower and 151 or 156 pound-feet of torque depending on which gearbox you pick, so while it’s not oozing power, the 86 has other aces up its sleeves.

For example, the 86 is agile and overall a hoot to drive but, for some, a nimble RWD car that doesn’t need to be driven fast to generate quite the thrills simply doesn’t do the trick. Take this nice chap from Australia, for example.

Lexus Isn’t Giving Up On Sports Cars, We Just Have To Wait A Bit

Cars like the LC still have a future at Lexus

It’s a tricky time for sedans as carmakers like Ford and Volkswagen have announced clear intentions to ditch the likes of Mondeo and Passat in favor of more crossovers and SUVs.

Moving on to higher echelons with electrification in mind, the crosshairs switch from sedans to sports cars. The use of batteries and e-motors for high-performance cars is and will be a challenge until the technology evolves, but Lexus doesn’t seem to be bothered.

The Craziest Alpina Cars

The Craziest Alpina Cars

Ever since its inception, Alpina has been tastefully filling niches wherever BMW wouldn’t or couldn’t

Alpina’s knack for tweaking BMWs has its roots in the early 1960s, when Burkard Bovensiepen wanted to make his BMW 1500 go faster and developed a Weber dual carburettor system. Since then, Alpina’s road to tuning excellence took the trajectory of a steady upward curve sprinkled with rad builds that didn’t just offer more power or more torque, but a complete package of tweaks that complemented the extra oomph. We’ll be looking at some of them in the following lines.

By "actually works" we mean that some areas work better than others

It was June 23, 1989, when Tim Burton’s noir take on the story of Batman hit the cinemas. Michael Keaton played Bruce Wayne, Kim Basinger was Vicki Vale, and that movie’s Batmobile was, well, probably one of the coolest Batmobiles to ever serve the Dark Knight. So, what if we told you that somewhere in the UK, someone built a working replica powered by a V-8?

It might look like the lovechild of a Ferrari Testarossa and a Porsche 911 but the two car manufacturers never worked together on such a project. It also looks like something concocted in an obscure workshop on Thailand, but it’s not that either.

This 1985 Peugeot 205 Could Have Helped Turbocharge Peugeot’s Future

This is not the run-of-the-mill 205; it is the rally-bred 205 Turbo 16

After having launched the 205 hatchback in 1983, Peugeot wanted to boost its image even further by competing in the rally madness that was the Group B. To homologate the necessary rally car, it needed to churn out 200 street-legal versions that had to be based on a current production vehicle. That vehicle was the 205 supermini and the result was the bonkers Peugeot 205 T16, aka Turbo 16 in France.

The Drako GTE On Ice - Pure Motion Art At Its Finest

Thanks to a bucketload of software, the Drako GTE makes ice drifting look too easy

When Shiv Sikand and Dean Drako decided to build the GTE, that desire came, in fact, from necessity. The two business partners couldn’t find an EV they liked and simply set off to build one themselves. Six year later, the Drako GTE was born as a high-performance sedan than drives like an E46 M3 and packs 1,200 horsepower.

But power is nothing without control and in case you had any doubts that the GTE isn’t a finely-tuned precision tool, we’re here to shatter those.

A lesson in finding niches and filling them up in style

The story of Alpina began in 1962, when a young engineering student named Burkard Bovensiepen mounted a Weber dual carburettor to his BMW 1500. The carburettor system was manufactured in Burkard father’s precision component factory and the way it changed the performance of the 1500 caught a lot of attention from a lot of people.

Porsche Won’t Build the Renndienst Minivan Because Sports Cars

The decision is understandable, especially when you walk in Porsche’s shoes for a bit

Concept cars are tricky to digest. On one hand, they delight the eyes as they preview a carmaker’s (often spectacular) path for the future and on the other, they most often than not leave us disappointed at their lack of fruition. Most concept cars do not get turned into road-going cars. Sadly, that is the case of the Porsche Renndienst minivan. And the reason is simpler than you would imagine.

Jay Leno’s 1966 Chevy Corvair Corsa Is Actually Gorgeous

If anyone knows how to care for a classic car, it must be Jay Leno

The Chevrolet Corvair Corsa was like a hipster car in the mid-1960s as far as what American car culture entailed. Thanks to an air-cooled, flat-six engine mounted in the rear, connected to a manual gearbox that helped spun the rear wheels, the Corvair cranked out 80 horsepower. The Corvair Corsa was blessed with turbocharging, so the output went up to 180 horsepower, a trait that Jay Leno describes as “impressive” during acceleration.
