Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.

7 American Cars That Are Quicker Than Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye And Cost Less

These 7 American Cars are more capable than a Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye and cost less

The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is, without a doubt, a very quick representative of the modern American muscle car. Its 6.2-liter, supercharged, pushrod V-8 puts out 797 horsepower and 707 pound-feet (959 Nm) of torque. That said, when it comes to American performance and muscle cars, there are others that match or even surpass the Hellcat Redeye’s performance capabilities and at a lower cost too.

Emilia Hartford No Longer Has The Most Powerful C8 Corvette

Emilia Hartford No Longer Has The Most Powerful C8 Corvette

The FuelTech C8 Corvette dethrones Emilia Hartford’s C8. It boasts more Power and a quicker Quarter-mile Time

The Chevrolet Corvette C8 is one of the most desired sports cars on sale today. So much so that GM is having difficulties keeping up with demand. The C8 is the first mid-engine Corvette to make it to production and, even before the arrival of any performance versions, the new platform has already proven to be very capable. Speaking of performance, ever since YouTuber Emilia Hartford built her own twin-turbo C8 “Vette” – the most powerful one in the world – we knew the race was on. And now, someone else has built an even more powerful one.

Singer 911 DLS Attacks Nurburgring

Singer 911 DLS Attacks Nurburgring

Singer has made the ultimate air-cooled 911. Now, they take on the Nurburgring with it

A few months ago, we talked about the Singer 911 DLS, which is a 500 horsepower, air-cooled, rear-engine, masterpiece, based on the 964-generation of the Porsche 911. We’ve been hearing about the car since 2018, but it was just a few months ago when the first customer car was finally ready. To say that the 911 DLS is the ultimate interpretation of an air-cooled 911 is a bold statement, which is why Singer decided to take it for a spin at the Nürburgring for some real testing.

2022 Mercedes AMG SL63

The next AMG SL63 strips almost all of its Camouflage, right before the official Debut

The next-generation Mercedes AMG SL63 has repeatedly been spotted out testing. The car is slowly being unveiled, as it features less camouflage every time. In fact, the new AMG SL63 is showing us almost all o its design features. Compared to models like the SLS AMG and its successor, the AMG GT, it was always a bit on the softer side in terms of the overall driving characteristics. However, things are about to change with this new generation, as it is the first SL, developed by AMG. What will this mean for the SL’s current target group?

Ferrari’s Latest Icona Project Has Been Spotted And It Looks To Be Inspired By The 1960s 330 P4

A strange-looking Ferrari test Mule appeared and it hints at a 1960s-inspired Hypercar

It seems now more than ever that Italian carmakers are hell-bent on keeping the internal combustion engine alive, especially when it comes to high-end companies like Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Pagani. Lamborghini recently resurrected the Countach and, now, Ferrari seems to be bringing another Icona (Icon), as spy footage shows a camouflaged test mule that resembles the 1967 Ferrari 330 P4.

Drag Race: Can The Mustang GT Convertible Take On The GR Supra?

Drag Race: Can The Mustang GT Convertible Take On The GR Supra?

The Toyota GR Supra is a Capable car, but can It stand up to a V-8 Mustang GT automatic?

The Toyota GR Supra is one of the most controversial vehicles of our time because of what it’s based on. Regardless of the platform it’s based on, one thing was made clear: the GR Supra is a very capable performance car. With a BMW-derived (but Toyota-improved) 3.0-liter, turbocharged, inline-six that makes 382 horsepower and 368 pound-feet (499 Nm) and a quick-shifting, ZF eight-speed automatic, it manages a 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.9 seconds. However, a Mustang GT with a 10-speed auto steps up to challenge the GR Supra.

That Time When Mazda Teased Us With Modern Version Of The 1967 Cosmo But Didn't Make It

That Time When Mazda Teased Us With Modern Version Of The 1967 Cosmo But Didn’t Make It

This retro-inspired Cosmo 21 is a rotary-powered Roadster based on the Mazda Miata NB

The idea of a new car that looks like a classic is not a new one, as many carmakers and design studios have been romanticizing it for a long time. However, it became most obvious around the early 2000s, with cars like the muscle car trio – the Mustang, Camaro, Challenger, and cars like the Mini Cooper and Fiat 500, only to name a few. That said, while many of these concepts went into production, others did not. Such is the case with the 2002 Mazda Cosmo 21, which took the Miata NB and turned it into a faithful representation of the first Mazda to use a Wankel (rotary) engine.

The Fast And Furious Tokyo Drift Nissan S15 Is Very Much Alive

The Quicksilver S15 is a forgotten movie Star, way cooler than the "Mona Lisa" S15, and it has real racing History

As absurd as the Fast and Furious franchise has become, you have to admit it included some amazing vehicles. In fact, not long ago, we did a list with some awesome F&F cars that, in our opinion, didn’t get enough screen time. However, there’s another one that has a history and we deemed it interesting enough to get its own article. It’s Sean’sNissan S15 Silvia from Tokyo Drift. No, not “Mona Lisa”, the other one.

Battle Of The Midsize Pickup Trucks: Toyota Hilux Takes On the VW Amarok In a Drag Race

Carwow pits the Toyota Hilux and Volkswagen Amarok against each other in a drag race, and the result will probably surprise you.

A drag race between two stock midsize pickup trucks is about as scientific as a drift competition with shopping carts. Pickup truck buyers are rarely interested in the performance aspect of these vehicles, but Carwow still gives us the answer to a question we never thought of asking – which is the quicker pickup truck. This time it’s the Toyota Hilux and Volkswagen Amarok that line up for a quarter-mile drag and despite the two vehicles being very similar on paper, the outcome is quite decisive.

The 1958 Alpine A108 is a forgotten gem that put Alpine on the global Map. It also inspired the original A110

When it comes to high-performance sports cars, Alpine is rarely the first brand to come to mind. Nowadays, the brand is has been revived and the Alpine A110 is a faithful reboot to the original 1961 A110. What many don’t know, however, is that the original A110 is actually an evolution of an older model – the much less known A108.

Manhart Put A Grille On The Tesla Model 3 And It Looks Good

Ever wondered how a Tesla Model 3 would look with a Grille? Tuning firm Manhart has provided an Answer

German tuning studio Manhart is mostly known for its tasteful modifications to various BMW models. For years, the tuning specialists have taken BMW vehicles and have enhanced their looks, as well as performance. In more recent times, the company has started branching out and we’ve seen their work on cars like the Lamborghini Urus and Land Rover Discovery.

Crazy Race: Lamborghini Urus vs Porsche Cayman GT4 vs Audi TTRS vs Golf R

Can two German Sportscars and a hot Hatchback take on the mighty Lamborghini Urus?

It’s always interesting to see how different engine layouts compare to one another. It’s even more interesting when a high-performance SUV goes up against some of the best compact sports cars and a capable hot hatchback. This is exactly the case with this drag race from Carwow, where a Lamborghini Urus is being challenged by a Porsche Cayman GT4, Audi TT RS, and a Volkswagen Golf R.

Unforeseen circumstances have forced Toyota to delay the GR Corolla

There’s no denying that we are spoiled for choice when it comes to hot hatchbacks. The Honda Civic Type-R, Hyundai Veloster N, and VW Golf GTIare currently some of the most popular global models out there, but now there’s another one on the way. It seems Toyota Gazoo Racing is not done with launching hot versions of boring cars and a GR Corolla is on the way. However, it’s not going to arrive when initially expected.

With The New Off-Road Trim, Mercedes G-Wagon Returns To Its Military Roots

With The New Off-Road Trim, Mercedes G-Wagon Returns To Its Military Roots

The Mercedes G-Wagon Professional Line is not your typical, flashy G-Wagon, as It doesn’t mind getting dirty

The Mercedes G-Wagon is one of Mercedes’ signature vehicles. None of the other German premium carmakers have an analog to it. For decades the Mercedes G-Wagon has been every rich person’s favorite way of giving the middle finger to all “plebians mopping around in a Corolla or an Elantra”. The boxy SUV has been interpreted by many tuners, such as BRABUS, MANSORY, and others, giving it an aggressive design, and making it appealing to people like celebrities and drug dealers.

However, the boxy SUV has much humbler beginnings, as it was originally developed as a military vehicle. It seems Mercedes remembered that and decided to give us a G-Wagon that doesn’t mind getting dirty.

You think the E30 M3 is cool? Wait until You learn about the ultra-rare BMW E30 333i

When talking about the BMW E30, you probably think of the E30 M3. The legendary lightweight Bavarian coupe came in 1986, as a homologation model for the Group A, DTM series. Although this is considered to be the ultimate version of the E30, there is another much more obscure model, and wait till you learn what engine they put in it.

This 1 of 1 W124 Brabus 6.5 is even more special than the 500E and E60 AMG "Hammer", and you probably didn’t even know about It

The Mercedes W124 is praised for its build quality and the ability to survive just about anything (or so they say). When it comes to performance versions, the 500E is the first to come to mind, since it technically laid the foundation for a future lineup of V8-powered Mercedes performance sedans. Then came the E60 AMG “Hammer” with a bigger V-8 and more power. The Brabus 6.5, however, is even more special. In addition to being even more powerful, there’s only one in existence.

We can all agree that the Dodge Challenger is one of the most iconic Muscle cars ever made. When you think 1970 Challenger, you probably think of the white 426 Hemi from the movie Vanishing Point. Although only one of the iconic white cars is said to have survived the movie, this plum crazy example, listed for sale at classiccars.com is not just a survivor, but apparently, a brand new car.

The Coolest Hot Hatchbacks That Never Came To The US

The U.S. market missed out on some pretty awesome cars, and these hot hatchbacks are among them

Hot hatchbacks have been around since the 1970s and, for the most part, have enjoyed great success. This is especially true in our time when they almost caused the extinction of an entire segment – the compact front-wheel-drive coupes. The hot-hatch has proven to be a versatile and fun vehicle, which is the main reason why they are so popular. And while the U.S. car market is one of the biggest and most important in the world, Americans have missed out on some epic hot hatchbacks - like the ones I’ve listed below.

Lamborghini never made a new Miura, but the Lamborghini Huracan Rayo is the next best thing and promises to be very fast

I think we can all agree that the Lamborghini Huracan is a very capable supercar out of the box. Be that as it may, the people at 7X Design thought it would be a good idea to exploit the car’s hardware to its fullest. Moreover, with help from Envisage Group from Coventry, the Huracan received a bespoke new body that seems to have been inspired by the Miura. The results, both visually and performance-wise, are mind-blowing.

We can all agree that 911 is the definitive Porsche model. It’s the car you think about when you hear Porsche. But in times where everyone is heading towards electrification, one has to ask, what the future of the Porsche 911 is. A rendering done by Sandor Boldog gives us a good idea of what might be the future EV equivalent of the Porsche 911.

Daimler and Geely have teamed up to reinvent the Smart Brand. Concept #1 is the first of many EVs to come

Smart is one of those obscure automotive names that you don’t really pay much attention to. They are mostly known for their ForTwo model, which isn’t really worth mentioning, or the fun Smart Roadster, which could have been a great car if it wasn’t for the atrocious automated manual gearbox. Now, however, there might actually be a valid reason to talk about Smart, as they’ve introduced a funky sub-compact crossover at the IAA Munich auto show, called Concept #1.

The Plymouth Barracuda may return this year, but It will be under the Dodge Brand

With the exception of an electric Dodge Muscle car that will arrive in 2024, Stellantis has been awfully quiet regarding any performance models. It seems this might change, as Dodge is rumored to be bringing back one of the most iconic Muscle cars ever made – the Barracuda. Of course, the brand that used to sit under Dodge in the Chrysler portfolio is long gone, so if the Barracuda is making a comeback, it will be as a Dodge model. Here’s what we know so far.

For better or worse (definitely worse), it seems that old-school performance cars with driver engagement in mind will be built by boutique manufacturers and in very small numbers. Although we occasionally get cars like the Toyota GR86 and Nissan Z, modern cars keep getting heavier, more complicated, and more artificial. With that being said, Smith Vehicle Engineering (SVE) has taken a BMW Z4 E86 and has done something remarkable with it.

The BMW M3 does not need an introduction. It has been setting the benchmark for performance cars since 1986, and although the newer models are a far cry from the lightweight homologation model that was the E30 M3, they are still some of the most praised driver’s cars. With the G80 now being the quickest-accelerating M3, you have to ask yourself, can a stock BMW M3 get any quicker? The answer is given by YouTube channel Drag Times, which managed to get its hands on a BMW M3 Competition xDrive.

12 Fast and Furious Cars that deserved more Screen Time.

Cars are an essential part of Fast and Furious movies, or at least they used to be before the franchise’s gradual transition to the action-packed special op-like theme. Before that happened (around the sixth or seventh movie), it was still mostly about the cars. Some vehicles got more attention than others, mostly due to the character associated with them. With this in mind, here are a couple of Fast and Furious vehicles that, we think, deserved a bit more screen time.

A few months ago, Lamborghini made it very clear that it will not give up on the V-12 engine. In fact, not one but two Lamborghini V-12 models are set to debut in the near future, one of which was the Ultimae. We also know what the other one is going to be. The Lamborghini Aventador is officially a decade old and a successor is due. As we mentioned a while back, the Aventador successor will feature a V-12 hybrid powertrain, based on the Sian.

Lusting after a classic Muscle Car? This 1969 Chevelle might be your best bet of owning one, but It needs a bit of love

Without a doubt, many of us romanticize the idea of driving around in a classic Muscle car. However, there are a couple of problems. The first one is that all the best ones cost a fortune. So unless you can spend about $500,000 on a Yenko Camaro or a 454 Chevelle SS, you can forget about owning one. Of course, many of the “lesser” but still worthy variants are left to rot somewhere, which is where this 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle comes in.

It’s another drag and roll race series, courtesy of YouTube channel Sam CarLegion. This time, it’s between two very unusual rivals – an Infiniti Q60 (not) RedSport and a Mercedes C43 AMG. The 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine in the Infiniti was adopted by the new Nissan Z, so this will give us a good idea of how it stacks up to some other performance coupes, performance-wise. Moreover, both cars run a stock tune (RS tune for the Infiniti) and a Stage 2 tune.

A New Prototype Suggests Aston Martin Is Doing Unthinkable Things to the Vantage

An aggressive-looking Test Mule suggests Aston Martin is shoving their Twin-Turbo V-12 into the Vantage

Aston Martin is one of the more enigmatic brands that we occasionally remember is up to something. That said, the British brand, like others, has a certain pattern in which it does things. When the previous-generation Vantage came out, it was equipped with a 4.3-liter V-8. It later grew to a 4.7-liter, but performance was still "meh" compared to some Ferrari or Porsche offerings. That said, in 2009, the entry-level Aston Martin got a V-12. Now, it seems Aston Martin is about to do the same thing to the current Vantage.

The Nissan Z finally made its official debut on 18th August 2021 and you will be able to order yours in spring 2022. With this in mind, a question you may be asking is “should I wait for the updated version?” The Nissan Z, like all other cars, will eventually receive a facelift. Although we can only guess how an updated version of the car would look like, it’s common knowledge that facelifted versions fix all (or at least some) imperfections of new models. However, this may not necessarily be the case with the Nissan Z, so is there really a need to wait a few years to get one?

Here’s What The 2023 Acura Integra Needs To Have When It Debuts

The Acura Integra is Coming Next Year, and This is What it Needs to Dominate the Market

Japanese automakers are on a roll and we already know what the next car to make a return is. Acura already confirmed that it’s bringing back the Integra sometime in 2022 as a 2023 model. Although the name has achieved iconic status, the competition is tough, especially when it comes to revived Japanese names. With this in mind, here’s what the new Integra needs to have in order to be a proper contender.

Track Battle: Can a Mildly Modified Nissan 370Z Take On a Track-Prepped BMW E46 M3?

A track-ready BMW M3 and an almost-stock Nissan 370Z throw down at Willow Springs Raceway, and the result might surprise you

Drag races are fun, but let’s face it, a true test for a sports car should include some corners. This is exactly why the YouTube channel Driving Line is presenting us with the “Driver Battles” series, where two drivers and their cars set the best possible lap times around a race track. Today’s time attack shootout is at Willow Springs race track and two of the most preferred build platforms go at it.

2004 Alessandro Volta: The Supercar From Toyota, Ahead Of Its Time

2004 Alessandro Volta: The Supercar From Toyota, Ahead Of Its Time

Toyota made a hybrid supercar long before it was cool; would it have worked now?

Nowadays, hybrid supercars are as common as a VW Jetta. Well, not quite, but you get the idea. Pretty much anyone into cars can name at least a few hybrid supercars off the top of his head – Ferrari SF90 Stradale, Lamborghini Sian, McLaren Speedtail, Aston Martin Valkyrie, Koenigsegg Regera, and others. What you may not know is that back when hybrid supercars were even considered, Toyota beat everyone to it. They did so with the Toyota Alessandro Volta, and this is everything we know about it.

Watch This 3,900-Horsepower Drag Race Between a Nissan GT-R, Audi R8, And a McLaren 720S

Can the Audi R8 and the McLaren 720S dethrone the mighty Godzilla?

High-horsepower drag races are always a thrill to watch. Even more so to participate in, but instead, I am sitting here writing about it. In any case, it’s always interesting to see which drivetrain layout is best at a certain power level, and once again, Carwow happily obliges. In this case, we have three cars with over 1,000 horsepower that differ in the way they deliver power to the ground – a Nissan GT-R, Audi R8, and a McLaren 720S.

This Two-Door Lancia Delta EVO SWB Will Make Your Day

This corner-carving Lancia Delta Nana is the craziest midget car you’ll ever see

If you are somewhat familiar with the world of rallying, you probably know of the existence of the short-wheelbase Audi Quattro S1 E2, which has a 320 mm (12.6 inches) shorter wheelbase than the initial version. The car is well-known for competing in Group B rallying, but what isn’t well-known is this crazy short-wheelbase Lancia Delta EVO, built by Artemio Racing, in Italy.

Wayne Newton’s Coachbuilt 1981 Mercedes 380SL Roadster Looks Hideous

This Coachbuilt 1981 Mercedes 380SL Roadster is proof that celebrities have more money than taste

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but there are boundaries to what you should and you shouldn’t be allowed to do to a car. This is especially true if we are talking about a car like the 1981 Mercedes-Benz 380SL. However, the desire for exclusivity spares no one, and this particular car, based on the R107 Mercedes Benz, is the perfect example.

The Porsche 356 Speedster-Inspired Iconic Autobody 387 Is Actually A 987 Boxster In a Classic Suit

Looks can be deceiving; This Porsche 356 Speedster is actually a 987 Boxster, redesigned by Total Headturners

For better or worse, replicas have become a part of automotive culture. It’s certainly an alternative to a million-dollar dream car, even if the quality is often questionable. When it comes to classic cars, there are many that have achieved iconic status. Naturally, this is also reflected in their price. The classic Porsche market, in particular, is more or less a constant in this regard. With this in mind, U.K.-based company Total Headturners has built a very convincing 356 Speedster replica based on a more modern mid-engine Porsche, and we think it looks awesome.

Can You Believe It’s Been 10 Years Since This 2.0 Skoda Octavia vRS Touched 227 MPH?!

The fastest Skoda in the world has now been completely restored, after setting a land-speed record 10 years ago

Skoda is mostly associated with affordable and sensible vehicles for pragmatic people. However, that doesn’t mean all of them are boring. In fact, the Octavia RS has always been based on the VW Golf GTI and is something of a sleeper. The story of this particular one started 10 years ago, on August 19th, 2011, when it set a speed record. The humble Skoda was dubbed the Bonneville Special and after serious modifications, it went to the Bonneville salt flats in Utah and managed a 227.080 mph (365 km/h).

YouTuber ’TheSketchMonkey’ takes it upon himself to tweak the seventh-gen Nissan Z’s face to look less boxy

The Nissan Z is finally here and we are happy to see that Nissan kept their word. The concept was said to be 95 percent, the production car and it turned out to be true. As always, TheSketchMonkey gives us a YouTube video, in which he “fixes” the Nissan Z’s looks. What makes this video different from most other videos, we’ve seen is that Nissan might actually make these changes itself when it comes time to refresh the new Z.

Meet the Leo Coupe; an eVTOL that wants to be a car

Since I can remember, flying cars have been portrayed as part of the future, especially in the cinema. For a long time, the idea seemed a bit too far-fetched to ever become reality. However, that is no longer the case. The eVTOL is, as the name suggests, an electric-powered VTOL (Vertical Take-off and Landing) vehicle. What makes this one unique is that while there are cars that mimic aircraft, this one is an aircraft that mimics a car.

There are certain cars we would love to have modern-day versions of. The list is progressively growing, as manufacturers shift their focus from fun cars to crossovers, SUVs, and EVs. That said, some of our favorite cars are getting a spiritual successor in the form of virtual renderings and this time, it’s Top Gear Philippines that brings back an iconic and somewhat obscure (to some) Japanese hot hatch – the Toyota Starlet Glanza V.

YouTube channel Officially Gassed gave us yet another drag race of epic proportions. And, this one really is epic, as the average power-to-weight ratio here is 2,184 horsepower per ton. Of course, a lot of that is thanks to the bike, but we’ll get to that in a second. We have a quarter-mile, half-mile, and a third-mile roll-race. It’s a clash between two German supercars and a modified motorcycle and the results might surprise you.

It’s not every day you get to find a 2001 Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT for a price like this

Lately, we have been turning a lot of attention towards Lamborghini. Something that was made inevitable with the revival of the iconic Lamborghini Countach. The Gandini-designed Countach was produced for 16 years before it was finally replaced by the Lamborghini Diablo. Although the latter did not manage to achieve quite the same status as its predecessor, it was better in every measurable way. With this in mind, a very clean example of the Diablo just popped up for sale, at a surprisingly low price.

Drag races seem to never get old. They are the ultimate straight-line performance test for any car. A quarter-mile drag race shows not only how quick a car is, but also how well it puts the power down. With this in mind, the YouTube channel Officially Gassed is giving us an epic drag race, between two highly modified vehicles – a Litchfield-tuned Nissan R35 GT-R and an Audi TTRS modified by Awesome GTI.

A Ford GT Test Mule Has Been Spotted Around Detroit With a Seemingly Different Engine

A weird-looking GT test mule was spotted recently that hints at Ford working on the rumored C8 Corvette competitor

A while back, we shared information about a C8 Corvette being benchmarked on Ford grounds, in Dearborn, Michigan. This was preceded by a trademark for the Thunderbird name, filed by Ford, in January 2021. Recent reports suggest that Ford has moved to the next step in developing a C8 rival. Ford Authority shared information about at least one Ford GT roaming around Ford test facilities. Moreover, the car spotted reportedly had a mysterious new engine that sounded nothing like the 3.5-liter V-6 EcoBoost.

Mercedes’ mid-size SUV promises more of everything, and this may spell trouble for BMW X3 and Audi Q5

The Mercedes GLC is already six years old. Despite going through a facelift in 2019, the mid-size SUV, internally dubbed X253, is due to be replaced. With this in mind, the next-generation GLC was recently spied testing. In fact, the two heavily camouflaged prototypes seem to be in the early stages of development, which means the current GLC will be around at least for another year. That said, even with all the camouflage, we noticed some important details.

Lamborghini proudly celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Countach, by launching a series about the model‘s history. The original Countach was produced for 16 years, and now that the automaker is reviving the legendary model, it’s worth revisiting all versions of the original car, including some of the very obscure ones.

Not all V-8 engines are equal. These nine cars pack sub-3.0-liter V-8s

For as long as most of us can remember, V-8 engines are associated with big power and big displacement. Although this is true for most of them, there are those that don’t share their bigger counterparts’ performance capabilities. Nevertheless, some of these engines pack a surprising amount of punch for their size. On top of that, you can find a lot of them in some pretty epic vehicles.

Mazda is definitely working on a future sports car; can this be the new RX-7 successor?

The topic about an upcoming flagship sports car from Mazda dates back to 2015, with the introduction of the Mazda RX-Vision Concept. However, the prototype served only to showcase Mazda’s KODO design, now present on all Mazda models. But after countless delays, mostly related to the refinement of the rotary engine, it seems we may finally be getting a new flagship sports car from Mazda. According to Jalopnik, Mazda has recently filed 14 patents, all of which related to the structure of the car.

This Honda Integra Type-R Rendering Is Faithful To Both The Past And The Present

A 2022 Honda Integra Type-R needs to happen, and this rendering shows exactly how it needs to look

The Honda Integra Type-R is not a car that needs an introduction. It’s considered the best front-wheel-drive sports car ever made. The Integra Type-R had all the right ingredients out of the box. A nimble chassis, close-ratio five-speed manual, helical LSD, and of course, the B18C5 engine that revs to almost 9,000 RPM. Sadly, prices have sky-rocketed, and if you want one, you’d have to sell an arm and a leg. However, industrial designer Jordan Rubinstein-Towler has decided to give us his own vision of what a 2022 Honda Integra Type-R could look like.

When a new car model comes out, it’s always interesting to see how it stacks up against its older generations. New models should be better in every aspect compared to their previous iterations, but with ever-stringent emissions regulations, is it really possible? The YouTube channel Sam CarLegion showcases just that by pitting three generations of the Acura TLX against each other in a drag race.

Moreover, there are certain benefits when having a car that looks like your average grocery-getter, like being pulled over less often.

The Alpha Motors Superwolf Electric Pickup Just Created A New Niche

The Alpha Motors Superwolf Electric Pickup Just Created A New Niche

The Alpha Superwolf might be the first pickup Truck built with serious electric off-roading in mind

The notion of an EV pick-up truck may be disturbing for some, but that doesn’t deter car companies from churning out such vehicles. The Ford F150 Lightning, GMC Hummer, Rivian R1T, and Tesla Cybertruck, are only a few of the upcoming propositions. There is, however, another company that seems to be hell-bent on giving us a full EV lineup. Alpha Motors brings a fresh alternative to the EV pickup truck niche. After their Wolf (single cab) and Wolf + (crew cab), we now have the Alpha Superwolf – a crew cab version with proper full-size doors. But that’s not all the Superwolf brings to the table.

Not many know, however, that Morgan has a long history, participating in endurance events. Even back in 1911, Morgan cars not only participated, but also excelled in such competitions, around the UK. This is exactly what the Morgan Plus Four CX-T represents, as it’s the brand’s firsts all-terrain sports car in a very long time.

Toyota Gazoo Racing celebrates 70 Years of Land Cruiser by reproducing spare Parts for the Land Cruiser 40 Series

The Toyota Land Cruiser 40 is, arguably, the brand’s most iconic off-road vehicle. It was produced from 1960 to 1984 (1968-2001 in Brazil). Although production of spare parts was discontinued, that’s about to change. On August 1st, Toyota Gazoo Racing announced that production of spare parts for the classic 4X4 will once again commence, which would allow owners of the vehicle to extend its life cycle.

A Very Special Maybach 57S Coupe Never Made It To It's Original Buyer For The Craziest Reason

A Very Special Maybach 57S Coupe Never Made It To It’s Original Buyer For The Craziest Reason

The original Owner of this special Mayback never took delivery of this rare Maybach 57SC by Xenatec, but someone else might for just $1.16 Million

Every now and then, we come across highly exclusive vehicles with an interesting story behind them. This is exactly the case with this Maybach 57S Coupe. Maybach is a very old car brand, which was briefly revived by Mercedes, back in 2002. Two versions – the 57 and 62 – were produced, each with their respective derivatives. Although over 3,000 cars were built in total, there were no coupes. That is until German coachbuilder Xenatec stepped in and converted some of the shorter 57S models. This is one of them and it was supposed to be delivered to a certain head of state - something, which never happened.

There Was a Time When Mercedes Built Hondas in an Unexpected Collaboration

In the 1980s, Honda wanted to build Cars in South Africa. Mercedes happily obliged.

The automotive industry has seen many collaborations between carmakers, especially in recent years, when cost-cutting seems to be the name of the game. However, some collaborations you just wouldn’t expect. When to Mercedes, it was Porsche who helped shove a V-8 into the W124, creating the 500E, but this time, it was Mercedes who helped another car company. That car company was Honda, who at the time was looking to establish a foothold in South Africa and, apparently, it was a win-win situation.

Gazoo Racing Has A Big Surprise for Toyota GR86 Fans

This very aggressive Toyota GR86 concept could become reality and we’re on board

It’s painfully obvious that Toyota isn’t interested in developing any high-performance vehicles, at least not by itself. This explains the more recent collaborations that spawned the GR Supra and 86 models. The latter, in particular, has been on the radar of tuning specialists since the beginning, as its playful chassis and less-than-sufficient power output (for some) are a good starting point for some epic builds. This time, however, Toyota isn’t about to let the tuners steal its lunch money and are giving us their vision of a serious performance proposition based on the Toyota GR86.

The Ferrari 296 GTS Is Coming Together Nicely, But Will It Be As Good As The GTB?

If the Ferrari 296 GTB isn’t stylish enough, the 296 GTS is coming very soon.

A while back Ferrari promised it would be more unpredictable in the future. Indeed, most of us were quite surprised when we learned that the next mid-engine Ferrari – the 296 GTB - would be a V-6 plug-in hybrid. We were even more surprised (or less so) that Ferrari is also working on an SUV. Some things, however, never change, as Ferrari’s mid-engine models have almost always been offered as a Berlinetta (coupe) and a Spider. Now, the Ferrari GTB’s open-top counterpart – the 296 GTS – seems to be almost ready to hit the market.

Pop-Up Headlights Were Cool, But Have You Seen The Corvette Manta-Ray's Pop-Up Taillights?

Pop-Up Headlights Were Cool, But Have You Seen The Corvette Manta-Ray’s Pop-Up Taillights?

The 1965 Manta-Ray not only inspired the C3 Corvette, but featured the most unique taillight design ever seen on a concept car

Throughout the years, there have been many design features associated with a certain time period. Cars from the 1950s often featured tons of chrome, fins, and sometimes exhaust tips integrated into the rear bumper. The 1980s saw the use of flared fenders, especially by tuning companies like Gemballa, Koenig, Strosek, and others. Pop-up headlights were also quite popular, but one car took things even further. The Mako Shark II (XP-830), also known as the Corvette Manta-Ray, was a concept that technically wasn’t produced, but that didn’t stop it from boasting some interesting design choices, especially with regards to its taillights.

Hyundai Veloster N DCT vs Honda Civic Type-R - Can The Small Korean Run With One Of The Best?

Hyundai Veloster N DCT takes on the Honda Civic Type-R; will quick shifts be enough to beat the Japanese hot hatch?

Most would probably agree that a drag race is a good way to determine which one of two (or more) cars has superior performance. Sam CarLegion – a YouTube channel that drag races (mostly) new vehicles – has given us a proper quarter-mile brawl between two of the hottest hot hatchbacks currently on sale. It’s the Hyundai Veloster N DCT versus the Honda Civic Type-R. Although a drag race only tells you so much about a car’s overall performance, the two are more evenly matched than you might think.

Land Rover Defender SVR To Feature A 600-Horsepower BMW-Sourced V-8 Under The Hood!

A BMW-powered Land Rover Defender SVR might just give the Mercedes-AMG G63 a run for its money

As far as SUVs go, the Land Rover Defender has been the talk of talks in recent times. That is a big achievement, given the variety of SUVs. Not to mention the crazy demand. We already know that, for 2022, the Defender will get a 5.0-liter V-8 engine with 525 horsepower (391 kilowatts) and 461 pound-feet (625 Nm). We expect this to be the familiar from Jaguar 5.0-liter supercharged V-8. However, this will not be the top version for long, as something bigger is coming. This, of course, being the Defender SVR, which will reportedly put out in excess of 600 horsepower, from a BMW engine.

Many wondered what is to become of the Type-R since the normal version was already announced for 2022. However, thanks to the recent footage, we know that the next hot version of the Civic is on its way. As with most spy shots, the car is still cloaked in camouflage, but we still get a good idea of what to expect.

It’s clear that EVs are already a big part of modern-day motoring. It seems another endeavor is to make personal transportation more accessible for younger people. One of these cars, in particular, can be driven by 14-year-olds, which is a bit worrying. Our colleagues from “What Car” present the four contenders. These are Citroen AMI, Renault Twizy, Micro Electric, and Reva G-Wiz. The actual race starts at 4:00, in case you want to skip straight to it.

The 2023 BMW M2 Will Look Way Different Than You Expect

It looks like the 2023 BMW M2 will not have the much-debated long Kidney Grille

It seems BMW has decided to distinguish the M versions from their regular counterparts even more. We already saw it on the BMW 3 and 4 Series, and their respective M versions. Now, we see it on its smallest sibling – the M2. Although the car is still heavily camouflaged, the kidneys are perfectly visible. Perhaps BMW did that in order to put to rest potential worries that, like the M3 and M4, the M2 will have the much-debated long kidney grilles.

The 964-generation, in particular, made between 1989 and 1993 is one of the most sought-after generations, especially in its ClubSport RS and Turbo variants. However, there was a peculiar situation in 1993. The last 93 examples of the Porsche 964 had remained in inventory and the Porsche 993 was due. The only option was to make them more outlandish-looking, faster, and exclusive. Enter the 1994 Porsche 964 Turbo 3.6 S – arguably the most sought-after version of the 964 and this particular one, listed for sale on “RM Soeheby’s”, is even more special than the rest.

This Widebody Porsche Taycan Rendering Will Scratch Your NFS Underground Itch

This is what a Porsche Taycan could look like if it is featured in the next Need for Speed Underground game

Sometimes you see something on the internet and think “why don’t they make it in real life?” This is exactly the case, at least to us, for this Porsche Taycan RWB rendering, which looks like it belongs in the latest “Need for Speed” game. The project is actually done by a digital designer that goes by the name “Shashank Das”. In fact, not long ago, we featured another creation of his – an orange widebody Mazda RX-7, quite similar to what we see here, in terms of modifications.

We Deserve This Modern Interpretation of the Lamborghini Countach

The ARC Design Lamborghini Countach proves that Lamborghini needs to make a retro-inspired Model soon

Retro has definitely made a comeback, as we see an ever-increasing number of retro-futuristic vehicles. The Chevrolet Camaro, Alpine A110, and Mercedes SLS AMG are only some of the great examples out there. This makes us wonder, which iconic car will be next to get its own modern-day successor? It seems Lamborghini is currently busy making performance SUVs and transitioning to electric drivetrains, instead of giving us retro-inspired models. However, an independent design studio by the name ARC Design has given us a glimpse of what a Lamborghini Countach would look like if it was made in 2021.

The BMW M4 CSL Could Make the M4 Competition Look Weak

The BMW M4 CSL Could Make the M4 Competition Look Weak

BMW is working on something more hardcore than the M4 Competition. The CSL Moniker will likely be revived

The CSL moniker will be back with the latest, G82 generation, BMW M4. A prototype was spotted not long ago, with most of its camouflage taken off. It seems BMW is doing the same thing as Mercedes does with their upcoming SL., slowly uncovering parts of the car. The current M4 is already a very capable car with 473 horsepower (353 kilowatts) or 503 horsepower (375 kilowatts) in the M4 Competition. As before, the M4 CSL promises to turn things to 11. More carbon fiber and more power, 540 to be exact. And it will hit the ground through the rear wheels only.

This Is the Range Rover-Based Bentley SUV That You Didn't Know About

This Is the Range Rover-Based Bentley SUV That You Didn’t Know About

Before the Bentayga, there was another Bentley SUV, sort of

The SUV craze led to many manufacturers turning away from tradition in order to capitalize on the demand for luxury and performance SUVs. As a result, vehicles like the Bentley Bentayga spawned. The model is largely believed to be the brand’s first SUV. What most people don’t know, however, is that there was another SUV wearing the Bentley badge back as early as 1996. That said, because the model was specially commissioned and wasn’t part of the brand’s official lineup, very few people actually know about its existence. Luckily for you, we are here to tell you all about it.

Can a 500 Horsepower Genesis G70 Take On a 600 Horsepower R33 Nissan Skyline GT-R?

Can a 500 Horsepower Genesis G70 Take On a 600 Horsepower R33 Nissan Skyline GT-R?

Watch and find out if this modified Genesis G70 3.3t has what it takes to take on one of the most legendary Japanese tuner cars ever made

Yes, it’s another drag race, courtesy of the YouTube channel “Hoonigan”. This one is a bit odd, as we have two cars, we never expected to see go head to head. On one side, we have a Genesis G70 3.3 twin-turbo that’s literally brand new. On the other side, we have a “barely stock” R33 Skyline GT-R. It’s all or nothing for the GT-R as its title for the best tuner car is on the line. The Genesis is down on power and heavier. Does that mean it’s going to be humiliated? Let’s find out.

This Mercedes SLR McLaren by MSO is Rare, but Is it Worth Bugatti Chiron Money?

This Mercedes SLR McLaren by MSO is Rare, but Is it Worth Bugatti Chiron Money?

One of the 25 Mercedes SLR McLaren MSO Editions produced is listed for sale in Germany, but the cost is steep

Built between 2003 and 2009, the Mercedes SLR McLaren was a modern-day tribute to the 1950s 300 SLR. The super Gran tourer preceded AMG’s SLS and GT models, both inspired by the 300 SL. Throughout its production cycle, there were some limited edition versions, such as the 722 Edition. There was also a race-prepped version of that, which you could buy. There is, however, a much rarer version of the Mercedes SLR McLaren, which was presented in a “Seen through Glass” video. It was developed by MSO (McLaren Special Operations) and now, one of the 25 made is for sale.

2021 Ferrari 550 Maranello Short Wheelbase by RML

The Ferrari RML 250 GT SWB may be the ultimate expression of automotive Retro-futurism

Combining modern hardware with a timeless classic shape is a dream for many automotive enthusiasts. Although there are more than a few companies that engage in such activities, very few actually go the extra length to achieve a more vintage driving experience. British company RML has done just that with this beautiful interpretation of the iconic Ferrari 250 GT SWB, based on the Ferrari 550 Maranello. RML has a long history of making bespoke chassis setups for various applications, including Motorsports. Some of their work includes the 2014 Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge prototype (the one powered by the R35 GTR engine) and a road conversion for the track-only Aston Martin Vulcan.

Hyperion's Hydrogen EV Hypercar is a Collection of Crazy Numbers

Hyperion’s Hydrogen EV Hypercar is a Collection of Crazy Numbers

The Hyperion XP-1 promises to combine great Performance and long Range

Plug-in and full hybrid vehicles are mostly viewed as a transition between internal combustion engines and EVs. In 2019, just two percent of light vehicles, sold in the US, were hybrids and for 2020, things have remained about the same. In the EU only one percent of vehicles are plug-in hybrids. However, with the recent talk about hydrogen, Hyperion Motors takes the opportunity to change the fate of hybrid vehicles. Their XP-1 hypercar took eight years to develop and now, the first prototype has finally taken shape. It certainly promises a lot, but can it deliver?

This 1969 Ford Mustang Started Life as a Hyundai Accent

Lusting after a 1969 Ford Mustang, but can’t afford one? Dream Customs India has got your back with this Hyundai Accent conversion

Many car enthusiasts lust after a high-performance supercar or a classic muscle car. Sadly, both are out of most people’s reach. This, in turn, creates a market niche for studios specializing in building replicas. After showing us their Honda Civic-based Lamborghini Aventador project, Dream Customs India is now showing us something even more bizarre. I’m sure you’re familiar with the 1969 Ford Mustang – a car that has achieved global stardom. The Indian studio has taken a 2009 Hyundai Accent – a fairly modern economy car - and turned it into a somewhat convincing clone of the 1969 Pony car. We’ll let you be the judge.

Yamaha OX99-11: The Formula One Powered Supecar Designed by a Motorcycle Manufacturer

This is Yamaha’s 1990s V-12 formula one-inspired supercar that never made it

Yamaha is a company mostly associated with motorcycles and musical instruments. There are also the occasional collaborations between Yamaha and certain carmakers – mostly (but not limited to) Toyota – where they design engines for high-performance vehicles. Some more notable examples are the Toyota 2000GT, Ford Taurus SHO, Lexus LFA, and others. What many don’t know, however, is that in the 1990s, Yamaha decided to build a car of its own. It was called the OX99-11 and although it ultimately failed, there are many interesting facts about this weird-looking supercar, which we are now sharing with you.

Aston Martin’s DB11 lineup is being simplified in order to make Room for an electric Version

Aston Martin is aiming for electrification in the foreseeable future and the planned changes for the Aston Martin DB11 aim to simplify the model lineup and make room for the electric version for the car. The DB11 was introduced in 2016 and, for two years, was produced alongside the V-12 Vanquish, before completely taking over as the brand’s flagship model. Now, the DB11 will have a more simplified lineup, to accommodate the eventual arrival of the gran tourer’s EV version.
