This 1998 Subaru Imprezza 22B STi Is As Pristine As It Is Rare
Auction sites like bringatrailer.com are the perfect places to look at if you are looking for unusual or rare vehicles. That is exactly the case with this 1998 Subaru Impreza 22B STI, which has 40,000 km (24,855 miles) on the clock. Japanese sports cars from the 1990s are becoming increasingly sought-after, especially those that were never sold in the US and have to be 25 years old. The Skyline R34 GTR and Supra A80 Turbo are already six-figure cars. The 22B STI is right up there with them, and for good reason.
Bugatti EB110 - A Great Car That Didn’t Get The Credit It Deserved
Many consider the 1990s to be a Golden Age for supercars. Many poster cars have come precisely from this era. I myself have posters and scaled models of many of them. Lamborghini Diablo, Ferrari F50, Honda NSX, McLaren F1, Jaguar XJ220, and others some of the most well-known representatives of their time. There is another one, however. The Bugatti EB110 was the French take on a 1990s supercar and, despite being relatively forgotten by some, it was an awesome car. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
After seeing This Rendering, Toyota Definitely Needs to Build a GR 86 Shooting Brake
We recently covered a rendering, which gave us an idea of how a Toyota GR86 Convertible could look like. Now, the Hungarian virtual design studio – X-Tomi Design – is giving us another great idea. They’ve taken the Toyota GR86 and decided to make a shooting break out of it. We have to admit, the results are quite good. The Shooting brake concept is a very old one. It dates back to the 1800s and the first shooting brake cars were manufactured in Britain.
This 1978 Ferrari 512 BB "Koenig Special" is Extra Special
The 1980s were all about excess. This extended to cars, as well. It’s no surprise, cars like the Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer (BB) were conceived. Back then, cars like these were the ultimate expression of wealth and power. But what happens when a Ferrari 512 BB doesn’t look flashy enough? You modify it, of course! This was the exact fate of this 1972 Ferrari 512 BB “Koenig Special”. The car is currently being auctioned off on collectingcars.com.
This 2022 Toyota GR86 Convertible Is Strangely Attractive
The Toyota GR86 is certainly one of the more pleasant surprises in the automotive world. In times when cars are becoming bigger, heavier, and much more complex, car enthusiasts begged for a car that’s simple, sporty, and relatively attainable. That being said, the Toyota GR86 may be available as both a Toyota and a Subaru product, but it only comes in coupe form. Although we definitely don’t mind that, some of us have wondered how a convertible version would look like.
2022 Genesis G90
Genesis may have only been around for only five years, but it has already proved it can give “the old dogs” a run for their money. Not only are they not stopping but they are, once again, taunting the German trio in a very bold move. The Korean luxury brand was caught doing cold-weather testing in Sweden with a new Genesis G90 executive sedan. Mercedes recently brought out the new S-Class, while Audi is preparing an updated A8. We also know that BMW is about to give us a new 7-Series very soon, so it will be interesting to see how the all-new Genesis G90 will fare.
See the C8 Chevy Corvette in An All-New Light in Vice City Vette
The Chevrolet Corvette C8 is one of the most talked-about cars in recent times. The hype still continues, despite the car being on sale for some time now. The Corvette has always been a stylish car, and although it’s mostly praised for its performance capabilities, it can also double as a cruiser, especially with the Targa roof. With this in mind, the C8 Corvette is definitely a car to have if you find yourself in the City of Miami, and the YouTube channel SchwaaFilms, which specializes in epic automotive content, has come up with an interesting way to demonstrate this.
This is Probably What the New BMW 8 Series Should Have Looked Like
By this moment in time, we’ve seen the retro-futuristic design in many incarnations. We’ve seen the American trio – Mustang, Camaro, Challenger, the Alpine A110, and now the soon-to-arrive Nissan 400Z. They all harken back to their originals from the 1960s and 1970s. That said, a design from the 1980s is a bit trickier to reinterpret. TheSketchMonkey has decided to take the challenge and gives us his take on what the current BMW 8 Series would look like. His YouTube channel has been around for a while and this is just one of the graphic designer’s many projects.
New Rendering Imagines a Modern Mercedes SL McLaren And We Want One
We were blessed with cars since the late 19th century. Up to this point, we’ve had the pleasure of witnessing, touching, and even driving some epic stuff. We’ve also seen many epic comebacks and spiritual successors of legendary cars. With this in mind, the Mercedes SLR McLaren is one of those cars that, we think, deserves a reboot. Apparently, concept artist Georgi Bozhkov thinks the same, as he is introducing us to one of his latest works.
Great Alternatives to the Volkswagen Golf GTI
The Volkswagen Golf GTI is considered the forefather of the hot hatch segment. The first Golf GTI was introduced in June 1976 and has been going strong ever since. Nowadays, the Golf GTI is in its eighth generation and is still one of the best all-around performers in the segment. It’s also sold both in Europe and North America, which is not something that can be said for all the cars on the list. With that being said, the modern hot hatch scene is as dynamic as ever and many new contenders for the best hot hatch title. Here are some of the best alternatives that aim to de-throne the GTI.
Maserati Bora - A Great Car With Horrible Timing
Maserati is one of the oldest and most coveted Italian car brands ever. Although they’ve had their ups and downs, the motorsport success of Maserati cars has helped spawn some great road cars, too. Among them was the Bora, which actually has its 50th anniversary this year. The Maserati Bora may not be as celebrated as other models of the brand, but it’s one of the most significant Maserati cars to have been produced. For its 50th birthday, we are giving you some interesting facts about the Bora.
2021 MG Cyberster Concept - A 500-Mile Sporty EV
Nowadays, due to the economic boom in some countries, as well as the popularization of electric vehicles, we see a lot of start-up manufacturers. What we also see are old names coming back from retirement. MG is one such name. After nearly 40 years of sitting on the side bench, the MG name is back. Sadly, their current model line-up consists of bland affordable crossovers and SUVs. However, the marque might be looking to regain its former glory by introducing a bonkers new model in the form of the MG Cyberster, which will debut at the Shanghai Auto Show later this month.
2021 Porsche 911 DLS by Singer
Singer is one of those companies that take something, already magnificent and recreate it in their own modern way. Anyone who is familiar with Singer’s work knows of their impressive work on classic Porsche 911 models. Their latest resto-mod resulted in the company’s “Design and Lightweighting Study” (DLS). Although the enhanced 964 was first introduced in 2018 that was a development car. Fast-forward to nowadays and the first customer version of the Porsche 911 DLS is now a reality.
The 2023 Nissan 400Z Nismo Could Have the Current GT-R’s Engine!
Nissan’s upcoming Z-car is one of, if not, the most talked-about vehicles in 2021. After the 13-year production run of the 370Z, it was about time for a replacement to come around. Nissan has been very secretive about the exact specs of the new Z-car and the only thing we know for sure is that US prices will start at around $35,000. However, sometimes information leaks way before it was intended to. Such is the case with what we are about to share.
The AMG GT’s V-8 Will Live On Thanks to Electrification, And It’s A Very Good Thing
While we recently talked about how the upcoming AMG C63e will come with a hybrid powertrain that will utilize a modified version of the 2.0-liter M139 turbo-four from the A45S, as well as the controversial nature of this decision, there might be hope for AMG after all. AMG is already cooking a new EV powertrain for its future models. We are expected to see the first car featuring it, later this year. In the meantime, the factory of madness is developing a new E-Performance Plug-in hybrid system for the AMG GT four-door and C-Class.
1944 Volkhart V2 Sagitta - The Luftwaffe’s Sleek Courier Car
Within the vast automotive world, there are cars from a certain era that aren’t talked about much. The 1940s are times most remembered for the Second World War, which forced many of the carmakers to temporarily switch from making cars to assembling military equipment, such as Tanks and Bombers. It seems the subject is taboo when we talk about German vehicles, in particular, such as the obscure 1947 Volkhard V2 Sagitta. Although the car’s roots are, even today, frowned upon by some, it featured some revolutionary design solutions. Today, we are sharing everything we have uncovered about this unrealized and forgotten automotive treasure.
2022 Mercedes-Benz C63e
The hottest version of the W206 C Class is already a fact. Although not on sale yet, a test car has been spotted during cold-weather testing. The test car features a similar full-body camouflage as the Mercedes AMG C63 Wagon, from not long ago. We already know that the next generation of AMG models will no longer use the glorious V-8 engine layout, they were known and loved for. The now-former AMG boss Tobias Moers, also expressed his displease with the way things are developing, even going as far as to quit AMG. All this begs the question, how much of an AMG will the new C63 be?
This 1967 Hoffman Citroen 2CV In Jay Leno’s Garage Is As Cool As it is Gorgeous
There are cars out there that beg to be used as platforms. If you’ve watched Jay Leno’s Garage on YouTube, you’ll know he has plenty of weird and cool stuff that he likes to showcase in detail. This time, he’s showing us a 1967 Citroen 2CV, but not just any 2CV. This one has a custom fiberglass body and it’s a convertible.
2011 Aston Martin Virage - Why Has Everyone Forgotten About It?
Aston Martin is one of the oldest and most emblematic manufacturers to ever exist. Over the years, they’ve had glorious racing history, as well as iconic models. That said, for one reason or another, some models are more memorable than others. When we talk about the Aston Martin Virage, most people remember the 1989-2000 model, also known as the Vantage V-8. In 2011, the name Virage was brought back, by utilizing the brand’s distinctive modern design. This is everything you need to know about the second-generation Aston Martin Virage.
You Might Be Able to Buy a Street Legal Glickenhaus 007 Le Mans Racecar!
Nowadays, the term “Racecar for the road” is awfully misused, mostly by marketing “experts” who are desperately trying to seduce people with more money than sense. That said, there are a few companies out there that do not mess about. Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SC Glickenhaus) has been getting a lot of exposure in recent times. Their philosophy is simple. They build racecars for the toughest races out there and then, they build street versions of them. It seems the same might be true for one of their latest creations – the SCG 007 Le Mans racecar.
2022 Porsche 992 GTS Targa
The Porsche 911 is probably the most versatile sports car ever made. It’s not only considered one of the most usable on a daily basis, but there’s also a version of the rear-engine Porsche for everyone. From the base Carrera to the very exclusive GT2 RS, which is yet to appear for the 992 generation, there are more than a dozen versions, without counting limited editions like the Speedster or Anniversary editions. With this in mind, the 992 generation is about to add another of the well-known versions to its lineup – the Targa GTS. Here’s what we can expect.
This 900HP AWD Honda Is Just Insane
About three years ago, the most heavily-modified Honda Civics in the US gathered on a runway and had a drag race. Two of the cars pushed well-over 1,000 horsepower, but the winner was a relatively stock-looking EG hatchback, with 900 horsepower and all-wheel-drive conversion. Needless to say, the car proved a point – power is nothing without control. Fast-forward three years and AWD high-horsepower Civic builds are starting to become more mainstream. The YouTube channel “That Racing Channel” (TRC) stumbled upon one of them.
Watch a Bugatti Veyron and a $50 Million Ferrari 250 GTO Play Cat and Mouse
It’s not uncommon to feast your eyes on some rare exotic vehicles when on the streets of London. The YouTube channel “TheTFJJ” is certainly making the most of it, as we see regular weekly content of expensive, rare, and exotic cars being enjoyed. Not only that, a lot of the footage is taken from inside of the cars. This video in particular shows two very expensive and rare cars, each of them very fast for their time, being enjoyed on public roads.
2023 Audi Q9
Rumors of a new full-size Audi SUV have been circulating for a long time and now there’s actual proof that Audi is indeed cooking a new flagship SUV model. Recently, a fully-camouflaged Audi SUV has been spotted testing at Volkswagen’s test facility in Sweden, doing cold-weather testing. With BMW’s introduction of the X7 and Mercedes’s GLS already on sale for some years, it only made sense for Audi to bring out a competitor. Here’s what we know so far.
Great Alternatives to the Porsche 718
The Porsche 718 is the latest iteration of the brand’s entry-level mid-engine sports car. The German carmaker has long been a benchmark for performance and their engineering prowess, and uncompromising approach has been giving us some truly capable cars. Even the compact 718 is exceptionally well-engineered. Of course, all the engineering, combined with the brand’s heritage usually involves a price tag that can be a bit steep for some. With this in mind, here are some alternatives to the Porsche 718, worthy of your consideration. Some of them might be unexpected.
Nissan Isn’t Done With the GT-R Yet, And What’s Coming Next Might Surprise You
It seems the Nissan GT-R lives up to the Godzilla name, not only in terms of performance but also in terms of its lifespan. Although it’s ancient (for a supercar), the Japanese supercar slayer is still holding its ground with the dignity and decisiveness of a true samurai. If for some reason you had doubts, that the GT-R is a great performance car, think about this: When a performance car of this caliber comes out, it’s usually at the top of the performance car food chain for maybe three years, before someone else dethrones it. But that isn’t the case with the GT-R.
You Have to Check Out The TIKT AMG GT R Pro at Hockenheim
Every car has hidden potential. This is especially true in modern days where most cars come out of the factory with the most eco-friendly setup possible. With this in mind, there are plenty of professional tuners who will be more than happy, for a certain price, to unchain the beast that sleeps in your car. As you will see in this video from the German “Sport Auto” YouTube channel, someone decided that the AMG GTR Pro is not vicious enough.
This Is How You Recommission A Classic Mercedes 300SL Gullwing
Having a classic car and keeping it running can be a challenge sometimes. This is especially true when a car has been sitting for a prolonged period of time, without being used. Cars, similar to people, need exercise every now and then. With this in mind, there are very few people out there who specialize in keeping classic cars in working order. Lain Tyrell has been a leading authority in the field for 40 years now and his expertise is highly valued across the globe.
2021 Arctic Fox ARCFOX
Very few players in the automotive industry can boast such a rapid rate of progress like the Chinese carmakers. In just two decades, they evolved from making rudimentary three-wheeled transportation devices to producing viable alternatives to many of the established players on the market. This rapid progress does not just extend to normal commuter vehicles either. For 2021, BAIC Group in cooperation with BJEV (Beijing Electric Vehicles) decided to attack the electric supercar market. They are introducing two versions of the Arctic Fox – the ARCFOX GT Race edition and now, the more road-oriented ARCFOX GT.
1997 Nissan R390 GT1
When we talk about legendary Nissan cars, the first one to come to mind is always the GTR, also known as “Godzilla”. Other significant models of the brand include the Silvia and Fairlady Z models, but there is one more that has largely been forgotten – the R390. Skyline’s heritage and success largely overshadowed anything else the brand came up with. In addition, the 1990s spawned many great supercars, one of which the McLaren F1. Whether that’s the reason for the Nissan R390’s fall into obscurity, these are all the important facts you want to know about Nissan’s mid-engine supercar.
A Volvo P1800 With a Porsche Targa Roof and a Corvette V-8 Might Happen
Nowadays, the automotive world is as diverse as our own, if not more. This presents more and more opportunities for interesting projects and there are plenty of people with imagination and creativity. Bo Zolland is one of those people. The designer has his own studio that dabbles in 3D automotive and marine design, as well as art design. With this in mind, he’s giving us an interesting project that combines some unexpected elements with a somewhat expected choice of powertrain.
This 2,000HP Dodge Viper Is Stupid Fast
Power is great, but just how much power is enough? Apparently, there is no such thing, as one of YouTube’s go-to racing channels – “That Racing Channel” (TRC) – gives us a ride-along in one very fast Dodge Viper. This isn’t just any Viper, as you will find out below. As usual, we get the story behind the car, how the owner got it, and what’s been done to it. Spoiler alert: there are some pretty crazy facts about this particular snake.
To Hell With Emissions: Lamborghini is Planning Two New V12 Supercars
Just like every other industry, the automotive industry follows certain trends. This means, that for one reason or another, car manufacturers need to adapt to different scenarios. In more recent times, this involves a transition to more efficient powertrains. Even AMG announced that it is moving away from V-8 engines in favor of turbo-fours and hybrid technology. With this in mind, Lamborghini recently announced their future plans involving two new V-12 models.
Learn Everything You Need to Know about the McLaren 720GT3X
Race cars are undeniably quick, but they still have to abide by certain regulations depending on the type of racing series they are meant for. This usually means a certain power to weight ratio or a maximum amount of width, downforce, etc. If only one of these parameters is outside the allowed boundaries, the car will not be eligible to race in the intended series. With this in mind, McLaren has decided to show us what a fully-unhinged racecar is all about by making the 720S GT3X. Here’s what you need to know.
2014 Falcon F7 - The Supercar You Didn’t Know Existed
Supercars are near the top of the automotive food chain when it comes to performance and engineering. Because of this, they can be quite expensive to develop. When you hear supercar, you probably think Ferrari or Lamborghini – two brands backed up by the financial might of their parent companies. But in 2014, an engineer and car enthusiast named Jeff Lemke proved that you don’t need the financial might of a big car company to build a proper supercar. In 2014 he made the Falcon F7. Here’s everything you need to know about this almost entirely home-built supercar.
Building the Ultimate Hyper-Hatch Is No Easy Task
It’s rare to see YouTube channels that embody all virtues of quality content. Mighty Car Mods has been around since 2007 and while it started slow, it has now grown into one of the most entertaining and educational channels for automotive content. The two friends do not discriminate, when it comes to the type of cars and basically anything goes. Now, they are answering a question to which everyone wants the answer, but few needed to ask. How to build the ultimate hyper-hatchback?
2022 Porsche 911 GTS (992)
The 992 generation of the Porsche 911 has been around since 2018. In true Porsche fashion, the marque has a version of the 911 for everyone. The GTS version has always represented the balance between relative affordability, comfort, and performance. The new 992 GTS is already out testing and they didn’t even bother putting camouflage on it. In the past, GTS versions were like the swan song of each generation, foreshadowing the arrival of the next one. However, their success forced the manufacturer to include them as a regular variant. Here’s what you can expect.
The Audi E-Tron GT Takes On A Formula E Racer In Epic Fashion
As motoring enthusiasts, we’ve all asked ourselves, how close can a road car get to a full-on racecar, in terms of acceleration? Nico Rosberg is here to answer this question, on his YouTube channel, together with the 2017 Formula E champion, Lucas Di Grassi. The venue of choice is the Audi Experience Center in Neuberg, Germany. The two racing drivers will put their reaction time to the test, with two amazing and extremely quick vehicles.
Looking Back at the E31 BMW M8 Prototype
BMW is a name mostly associated with pure driving pleasure - in fact, it was even their slogan at one point. Even though they are making some pretty controversial cars, in the eyes of the fans, there’s no denying the fact, they’ve made some epic cars, over the years. One of the most epic BMW cars, however, was one that was never sold – the BMW M8 E31. Despite BMW’s decision not to put the M8 E31 into production, there are a lot of interesting facts surrounding it.
Ford Mach-E Vs. A Rocket?
Ford Motor Company’s official YouTube channel recently came up with a very interesting way to boast about the Mach-E’s electric range. Ford’s EV has an EPA range of 300 miles (483 km). When you consider that just a decade ago, most EVs were struggling to squeeze 100 miles of electric range, Ford, like other carmakers, has come a long way.
Restoring An Abandoned Porsche 911 In Just 4 Days? Impossible
We’ve all been dreaming of finding a car that’s been sitting for a while and giving it a second chance, by restoring it. This, of course, is much easier said than done. If anyone thinks the opposite, this video where Tony Angelo from the YouTube channel Stay Tuned, will prove you dead wrong. The channel is actually quite new and so far has only a few videos uploaded, but it already gathered close to 46,000 subscribers. The channel is all about fun, as you can see from the uploaded videos. The story of how this 1999 Porsche 996 came back to life, however, is both fun and frustrating.
Best oil filter
Your car’s engine is the equivalent of the heart. This means that you always need to ensure it’s in the best possible shape. An oil filter seems like insignificant at first, but it’s anything but insignificant. It actually plays a key part in properly lubricating your engine. Because of this, finding the oil filter best suited for you is crucial for your engine’s long and healthy life. Some oil filters are universal, while others are brand or even model-specific. With this in mind, here are some of the best options currently on sale.
2021 DS 9
The DS brand has established itself as Citroen’s luxury brand. After the DS3 and DS7 Crossback, the French marque has brought out its flagship – the DS9. It’s been too long since Citroen has had any form of a full-size saloon. Finally, in 2021, they have filled the void. The DS9 aims to compete with the likes of Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7-Series. A bold move, indeed. Those, familiar with the history of French manufacturers know that back in the 1950s, the most comfortable and revolutionary cars came from France. Can the DS9 recapture the old glory?
Motorsport Magazine Tries To Make A Case For The BMW 128i
BMW is a brand loved by many. However, times have changed and with them many of the car company’s values. The BMW F40 (yes, that’s the chassis code) has done away not only with the inline-six but also with the rear-wheel-drive layout. It has dropped its distinctive characteristics in favor of practicality. Motorsport Magazine took the BMW 128ti – the second most powerful version after the 135i – and tried to justify its purchase over the rest of the hatchbacks.
Is the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 The Last Non-Hybrid GT3?
By now we know that almost every manufacturer is heading in the direction of electrification. More and more internal combustion engine cars feature mild or plug-in hybrid technology in order to reduce the negative impact on the environment and cover the latest strictest emissions regulations. Porsche – a manufacturer set on tradition, at least when it comes to their 911 model – has also started down that road. They even introduced a fully-electric car – the Taycan. Moreover, the Panamera and 911 Turbo S now feature mild-hybrid technology. There is one Porsche, however, that stays true to its roots – the GT3 – and the YouTube channel MotorHeads does a good job of introducing you to the ins and outs of it.
Remember the Volvo Amazon? Watch It Get Refined by a Master
Design-wise, cars have come a long way. So much so that, for as long as we can remember, cars have been drawing inspiration from various places, such as animals, shapes, other cars, and even having the equivalent of human eyelids – case in point being the Lamborghini Miura. However, today we are talking about a much more unremarkable vehicle.
Can this Chinese Hongqi H9 Really Compete With the Mercedes S-Class?
The Chinese car market is one of the biggest and most important in the world, which is why most manufacturers strive to establish a strong foothold there. It’s not just the sheer size of the market, but also the cost-cutting opportunities that come with having a production plant on the territory. In recent years, however, the Chinese automotive industry has taken a big leap and although they still have ways to go, Chinese car manufacturers are already offering some pretty attractive ideas, at least as far as their own market goes. The Hongqi H9 is one such car.
2021 Porsche Taycan by Techart
Techart has been around since 1987 and quickly established itself as one of the go-to Porsche tuners. They had a particularly glamorous record between 2005 and 2012, giving us multiple visually-enhanced Porsche models, almost every year, throughout that period. Although their last project involved a mildly altered 991-generation 911, they came back full-force for this one. The new Taycan features many new elements, courtesy of the German tuner, and although it’s not over-the-top like something you’d expect from Mansory, it still is a significant upgrade over the already aggressive-looking super EV.
Remembering the Toyota MR2 - The Perfect Compact Sports Car
Toyota was and still is a synonym for reliability. Some people also remember that, alongside their rather unremarkable economy cars, they also made some pretty epic sports cars. One such car was the Toyota MR-2, particularly the SW20 generation, which combines all aspects that made Japanese sports cars of the 1990s as epic as they are. Although Toyota has given us a spiritual successor to the AE86, in the form of the GT86 and has brought back the Supra name, the brand’s mid-engine sports car is still sitting on the side bench.
Take a Good Look At the New 2022 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer
Car manufacturers continue to spawn great remakes of iconic classic models. For some time now, we’ve known about the upcoming Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. Now, it’s finally here. The Jeep Wagoneer is considered to be the first luxury SUV. It was first introduced in 1963 and was produced all the way to 1991, making it one of the vehicles with the longest production run. It also started what is one of the most popular segments, at least in North America.
You Should Probably Hear What Chris Harris Has to Say About the BMW M3
BMW’s new design language has raised more than a few eyebrows in recent times. The G20 generation of the BMW M3 has taken a lot of flak because of its looks, and because it’s the brand’s best-selling performance car.
Needless to say, many of the more traditional BMW fans see the new design of the M3 as a botched plastic surgery, mostly with regards to the front fascia. We are not going to get into details about the front grille design, as this is a subject as hackneyed as the death of the Dodge supercharged V-8 engines or the fact that the Corvette is now a mid-engine Ferrari-looking thing. But let’s get back to the new BMW M3 because the grille is just part of the issue.
2021 Ferrari 308 GTS by Liberty Walk
We can officially call this the “piss-off the purists week” since we quite recently talked about a Ferrari 308 time attack build, featuring a K24 engine swap. Although this 308 still features its original drivetrain, we still think it’s a love it or hate it kind of car. A classic Ferrari is one of the last cars you’d expect someone to modify visually. If you know something about car culture in Japan, you’d know that the more unique-looking your car is, the cooler it is. Because of this, the Japanese company Liberty Walk is not afraid to alter the aesthetics of even the most exquisite cars. This 308 GTB is their latest and probably boldest project.
One of the things we love about internal combustion engines is the sounds they make. This is especially true when we talk about high-performance and racing engines. With that being said, the LMP grid for the 2023 FIA Endurance Championship will be quite busy. Big names like Ferrari and Porsche are making a comeback, joining alongside others like Toyota and Audi. Scuderia Cameron Glicenhaus is also bringing in a proper challenger and it sounds like the devil.
THE SPIRIT OF AMG: THE SILBER-SAU With Magnus Walker
There are cars out there that defy the odds. Cars that, according to many, shouldn’t be capable of what they’ve achieved and yet despite that, they did. Such creations deserve a place in the annals of automotive history not just because of what they were capable of, but also because of what they represent. All of you who are familiar with Magnus Walker would know that he is all about Porsches. That’s not the case, however, as the Porsche enthusiast and collector branched out into the wider spectrum of rare, obscure, and exotic cars - like this Silber-Sau
2021 Toyota Yaris Cross
Toyota is in the midst of reorganizing its lineup and the Yaris Cross will be the next one to step in, as the brand’s newest compact crossover. With the Yaris Cross being positioned under the C-HR, Toyota will now have a complete portfolio of crossover vehicles. The model is aimed specifically for Europe, where compact dimensions, combined with a high seating position and rugged design are valued. The model will be assembled in France, where more than 150,000 units per year will be made. Here’s why Toyota is betting so much on it.
This Ferrari 308 Build Would Make Enzo Turn Over in His Grave
There are a couple of things in the automotive world that are considered taboo. Although you can see plenty of crazy ideas out there, this one is on a whole other level. If you are a Ferrari fan, a purist, or have a faint heart, switch the channel now. In case you are curious as well as one of the aforementioned, do so at your own risk.
The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport Is Better On The Road Than You’d Expect
Hypercars are one of the most fascinating categories of cars ever to exist. Over the past two decades, Bugatti has been consistently breaking speed records as well as price tag records in its class, with very few manufacturers being able to compete with the old French brand. Just like its predecessor, the Chiron has had more than a few versions made, some of which are highly-exclusive. With that being said, only one of those versions can be the ultimate.
2021 Ferrari 812 GTS Stallone by Mansory
Sometimes having the loudest, craziest-looking, most exclusive cars is not enough. When you want your car to stand out you go to a company like Mansory.

This transition marks the beginning of the end for the hand-built AMG V-8 engines that we all know and love. Needless to say, such a decision raised more than a few eyebrows. AMG’s now-former CEO, Tobias Moers, stepped down from his position a few weeks after the meeting that sealed the C63’s fate. His work with AMG is not entirely done, however, since he is now the CEO of Aston Martin. As we know the British brand has struck a deal with Mercedes to use some of its technology. This includes the AMG 4.0-liter V-8 unit, which will probably be the swan song for Affalterbach’s V-8 rumble.
This Is What Happens When You Buy a Super Cheap Mini Cooper
As car enthusiasts, we are sometimes suckers for a good deal. Luckily, in most cases, common sense prevails, especially when a deal looks too good to be true. That said, sometimes, common sense does not prevail and what initially seemed like a great purchase ends up being an endless money pit.

Dedicated GPS systems are still very much alive and kicking. Yes, the infotainment systems in modern cars do come with navigation, quite often as standard. You can also use your smartphone’s navigation app if you so choose.

Can an Abandoned 1968 Buick LeSabre Start and Drive After Sitting 26 years?
If you are reading this, there’s a 99-percent probability that you are a car enthusiast. If you are, then at some point you’ve probably been romanticizing about finding an abandoned car, restoring it, and driving it. Such a feat would certainly be worthy of been immortalized in the automotive archives, or in this case, most likely YouTube. Speaking of which, this video from Vice Grip Garage just so happens to showcase “rescues” like these.
Great Alternatives to the BMW Z4
The BMW Z4 is a bit like the black sheep of the family. It’s part of the BMW lineup but it’s sort of there because it has to be. The fact that the new Toyota Supra is based on it, does not help either, as its Japanese twin managed to steal the show, with its controversial use of a BMW engine and platform. This does not mean that the new Z4 is a bad car, on the contrary. But we think that all alternatives should be considered. Our list has something for everybody, including a surprise.
Can An Old Lexus Really Give You A V8 With Luxury and Reliability?
Most of us would agree that luxury and performance cars are unattainable for most of us. Because of this, we spend a lot of time looking for the best possible bargain. Things are not that simple, however, as when you eventually stumble upon an offer that looks like a bargain, things are often not as they seem.

This begs the question, can the best-seller of the Czech brand still be at the top of its game?

2022 Lotus Esprit
Lotus is one of those enigmatic manufacturers that have given a lot to the automotive world while also bearing its fair share of difficulties. Under its original founder, Collin Chapman, the brand established itself as a Formula One pioneer. Later, they went on to help other companies build some of the most epic cars, like the Lotus Carlton, Chevrolet Corvette C-4 ZR-1, and even the Nissan GTR.

Best Battery Charger 2021
We’ve all experienced it at some point. You get in the car, turn the key, and nothing but that clicking sound. Batteries can discharge over time.

This is why investing in a battery charger might be a good idea. As with other products, variety is plentiful, so we narrowed it down to a few, you should consider first.
10 Concepts That Transitioned Nicely to Production Cars
Concept cars are awesome. They not only show us the future of car brands but also give designers the opportunity to unleash their creativity, giving us some jaw-dropping automotive marvels.

Drifting in a RWD Porsche Taycan? We’re Not So Sure

Best Synthetic Oil 2021
Synthetic oil is generally regarded as much more efficient than conventional oil. Initially popular in the world of performance cars, over time it has become more mainstream.

5 Alternatives to the Dodge Demon That Will Fill The Void
By now, many of us motoring enthusiasts have heard the sad news about the Dodge Hellcat and Demon. The SRT department has long cemented its reputation as the creator of some of the most outrageous, awesome, zero f***s given muscle cars and the Demon was the last and most powerful of them all. For around $85,000, you got a 9-second car with over 800 horsepower that can do wheelies. Who does that? All good things must come to an end, however, as stricter emission regulations bring an end to big supercharged V-8 engines. With this in mind, here are some alternatives to the tire-shredding unholy creation. If you’re a Dodge fan, you might want to stick until the end, for this one.
The Brawler MHC 001 - A Ferrari 308 With An Apocalyptic Twist
Creativity is awesome, especially when you can express it and share it with others. This is exactly what an independent designer that goes by Colorspunge did. What you are looking at is a sinister rendering of a 1975 Ferrari 308 GTB. Although it’s not the first time we see awesome renderings, this is one of those more memorable ones. Yes, we say that about a lot of things, but there’s actually more to this rendering than you see at first glance.
This Volkswagen Golf Mk. 2 Puts Every Porsche On The Planet To Shame
When you think about compact cars with great tuning potential, 8 out of 10 people would probably think of the Honda Civic. However, in Europe, there’s another popular alternative – the Volkswagen Golf. A while back, a video was circulating around the internet where someone in a Nissan 350Z was chasing a Porsche 997 GT3. At the same time, a stock-looking Golf Mk1 came out of nowhere and embarrassed both the Z-car and the 911, without even a sweat.

Yet Another Reason BMW Engines Are Junk
As a car enthusiast who spends some of its time watching YouTube, you may have stumbled onto Tyler Hoover’s channel – Hoovie’s Garage. The YouTuber consistently opens up with the slogan “The dumbest automotive channel on YouTube”, but we like to think it’s more of an educational/entertaining automotive channel. Mostly with regards to what we shouldn’t be buying. With this in mind, Tyler, once again, walks us through (or under) one of his many “hoopties”, as he likes to call them.

Cyberpunk in Real Life? Here’s What Your Favorite Modern Cars Would Look Like
Usually, when game developers come up with a game that includes vehicles, they have to license them from manufacturers. Sometimes, game devs go around it by reimagining some of the cars or simply mashing up elements from different vehicles, making some unique stuff. Cyberpunk is one of those games. The first-person open-world shooter features some epic vehicles, from utilitarian, scruffy-looking commuter cars to exquisite luxury and hypercars. Regardless, their style has inspired more than a few people out there, which have created awesome renderings of real-life cars.
2021 Porsche 718 GTS | Medicine for the Soul
The Porsche 718 is the entry point to Porsche’s sports car lineup. That said, with the introduction of their flat-four engines, many Porsche fans asked themselves if Porsche has lost its way. Obviously, we are not talking about the 911, since the flagship model still goes strong. That said, transitioning to a more eco-friendly drivetrain is a tricky thing to execute right, especially in performance cars that have a cult following. It seems, however, Porsche has realized their mistakes and wants to put things right. Enter the 718 GTS 4.0.
This McLaren 765LT Can Run The Quarter-Mile in 8.9 Seconds!
It’s safe to say that we are spoiled for horsepower. About 20 years ago 500 horsepower was considered a very respectable figure for a supercar. Nowadays, people laugh at the notion of a 500-horsepower car that has any supercar claims. This is why supercars with over 700 horsepower have become a rather common sight. This also means that we get some pretty mental stuff on four wheels, like this McLaren 765 LT.
10 Things You Must Know About The McLaren Artura
For a while, McLaren was a bit of a wild card in the automotive industry. Almost 30 years ago, they gave us the F1, which was the fastest production car for over a decade. After that, they went quiet. This of course changed around 2010 when they announced their first supercar for the century – the MP4-12C. This was the beginning of McLaren’s offensive and cars like the 650S, 600LT, and 720S were spawned. Now, McLaren gives us the Artura and it’s a bit different than the others. Here’s what you need to know.
10 Things You Must Know About the 2022 Porsche 911 GT3

Be that as it may, the new 992 GT3 brings a lot of changes to the model and we know, you want to know about them. Here are the top 10 things, you need to know, about the 2022 911 GT3.
Among the many engines Toyota has built, two stand out. Both of them were conceived in the early 1990s and would go on to power some of the most recognizable Japanese cars ever made. We are talking about the 1JZ and 2JZ engines. Although the technology behind them is now over 30 years old, they are still some of the most popular engines used in builds. But do they differ simply in displacement, or is there more to it? Here’s what you need to know about both these Japanese straight-sixes.
The Jaguar XJ is Dead, and The Rest of the Lineup Might Follow
With the increasing expansion of electric vehicles, more and more car companies are rethinking their strategies. One of the latest cases is Jaguar. The esteemed car manufacturer from Great Britain will be making a complete transition to electric propulsion in the coming years. This means that some of our favorite models from Jaguar will undoubtedly face extinction, starting with the flagship sedan – XJ. What does this mean for the rest of the brand’s current lineup? How much of it will be left and what can we expect in the future?
For better or worse, the addition of forced induction has become almost obligatory when designing a modern engine. Because of this, a 2.0-liter street engine can now produce the horsepower of a 3.0-liter n/a engine and sometimes even more. But back in the day, when turbochargers were not so popular, people could get an idea of an engine’s capability solely from its displacement. Some of you might know that displacement is calculated by multiplying the bore and stroke and then multiplying that by the number of cylinders. But in some cases, the result doesn’t match the badge. Here are some of the offenders.
Porsche cars are known for being some of the most reliable high-performance machines ever built. That wasn’t always the case, however, as some models, especially in their earlier versions, were anything but reliable, especially if some of the known (by some) problems are left unattended. And although it can be a nightmare to work on a broken engine, it can be surprisingly relaxing to watch someone else dismantling one and then putting it back together.
The Porsche Cayman GT4 Touring Could Be The Perfect Sports Car
Some time ago, a very interesting Porsche Cayman was spotted out testing. Remember the photos at the end of October of what we believed was the Cayman T prototype? Now with the four-cylinder Cayman T and Boxter T revealed we know that that was not the case and that it was something else instead. This begs the question, is Porsche working on a Cayman GT4 Touring?
It seems a lot of people love watching car crashes on YouTube, especially when they are from racetracks. With this in mind, one YouTube channel has definitely found its niche. The channel Auto Addiction frequently uploads videos from the most challenging racetracks in the world – the Nurburgring.
Best Head Gasket Sealer
When it comes to your car’s health, a head gasket is something you rarely think about. It’s a vital component that does not require maintenance and reminds you only when it goes bad and does not seal properly. This can lead to nasty scenarios, like coolant and oil mixing together, which can lead to catastrophic failure. The obvious solution is to replace it, which in some cases can be expensive. A viable alternative is to use a head gasket sealer. In order to save you the trouble, we’ve gathered some of the best products currently on offer.
2021 Citroen C4 and E-C4
The new C4 is here and brings in what can be described as the French equivalent of retro-futurist design. This is especially interesting since Citroens of old were very advanced cars for their time and they also looked futuristic. Because of this, it may seem strange that we are talking about retro-futuristic aesthetics. That is until you look at some of their older models like the Citroen CX or SM. The C4 and now the e-C4 continue to be the backbone of Citroen’s lineup, but will quirky design and modern technology be enough to compete with the best?
