Here’s How the Retro-Styled Honda E Holds Up Against the Classic Civic
Honda likes to play a lot with heritage when it comes to what its cars look like. The Japanese brand also did quite a neat job in feeling the recent rise in awareness and love for classic cars and cleverly styled the Honda e EV accordingly.
We must admit, seeing the nippy electric car next to the original Honda Civic not only makes us want the EV even more, but also realize just how many retrolicious cues went into it in the first place.
2020 Mercedes-AMG G63 Brabus 700 By Fostla.de
Brabus is known to customize and give the vehicles it works on a unique twist. Its favorite bunny, the Mercedes-AMG G63, has been transformed into many different iterations. One of them is the Brabus 700. The aftermarket company later tweaked it again with a small performance boost and some exterior upgrades that resulted in the 700 Widestar. Now, another German company called Fostla.de has laid its hands on the Brabus 700 Widestar to give it its own twist. This pattern will make Christopher Nolan proud.
This Slammed Ford Bronco-GT Supercar Mashup is Oddly Satisfying
Let’s put this in a very simple way. The Bronco is an off-roader. The GT is a supercar meant to stay on the tarmac. These two segments run parallel and can never intersect. But, thanks to some geniuses, we now have a pictorial representation of what these two would like when mashed up, and surprisingly, we didn’t have the urge to break our screens. Timothy, who goes by ‘Adry53customs’ on Instagram, uploaded a few renderings of the Bronco-GT lovechild, which happens to be a hot rod, and it is satisfying.
McLaren Star Lando Norris WIll Rock A Helmet Designed By A Six-Year-Old At Silverstone
Formula 1 is being dominated by Mercedes at the moment but the wealth of young talent in motorsport’s highest echelon makes us hopeful for the future. Ferrari’s got Charles Leclerc, Red Bull is all in on Max Verstappen while Williams’ hopes rest on the shoulders of George Russell.
McLaren too has a young gun up its sleeve in Lando Norris, one of the paddock’s more colorful and playful characters, a side he’s once again showing off with his latest unique helmet design he’ll use during this weekend’s British Grand Prix. Why is it playful and quirky? Because it was designed by a first-grader.
This Exquisite 1972 BMW 3.0 CSL Just Sold on BaT for $175,000
One way to make sure that a car is rare is to check if it was built simply as a way for an automaker to race that certain model on the tracks or the rally stages. This applies to BMW’s E9 CSL, the winged warrior that dominated the European touring car racing scene for the better part of a decade taking wins against the likes of Ford, Mercedes-Benz, and Jaguar in the process. The road-going version is just as flamboyant and, as this latest BaT auction proves, incredibly desirable.
Is the 2020 BMW M5 Competition Really Better Than the Jaguar Project 8?
The BMW M5 Competition is arguably the best car the German automaker has on the road these days. It checks all the boxes you’d want in a prized super saloon. Refinement? Check. Class and sophistication? Check. Power and performance? Check. If you want something from a car, the M5 Competition probably has it in spades. Knowing all of that, is it possible that the M5 Competition is too good of a car that when you line it up opposite, say, a Jaguar Project 8, you’d enjoy the much-less refined special project Jag more than the BMW saloon? Veteran auto scribe Harry Metcalf sought to find an answer to that question, and he did so the only way he knows why: driving both cars and seeing which of the two is the better car.
Go Out And Buy The Off-Road NIssan GT-R Because A Pathfinder Is Boring
The Nissan GT-R is one of the few constants in the landscape of modern supercars. Having been in production for a whopping 13 years, you’d be forgiven if you no longer give a GT-R a second look when spotting one on the street but that’s not the case with this particular R35.
With 4.7 inches of extra ground clearance, huge off-road tires, fog lights, and a roof rack, this Godzilla is one of the craziest road-legal GT-Rs in Europe and one that really puts the car’s AWD system to the test. Yes, this is a GT-R that’s ready to go off the beaten path.
Throttle House Says the Land Rover Defender is a $75,000 Ford Bronco Fighter
Brands bringing back past-glory monikers is the norm these days and with no signs of this trend slowing down, reviews such as TH’s latest video are bound to pop up on the internet sooner or later.
Now, the video argues that the 2020 Land Rover Defender is a Bronco fighter, which is actually very debatable, for a variety of reasons - however, the two cars are quite similar to some extent.
2020 Jeep Gladiator - Driven
The Gladiator was the most anticipated launch of 2020, right alongside the Chevrolet C8. Jeep had revealed the pickup truck concept back in 2005, but it took the company 15 years to bring out the production version. This was going to be Jeep’s first pickup truck in 30 years, so it was natural for enthusiasts to be hyped up for it. Jeep even introduced five different Gladiator concepts at the 2019 Eastern Jeep Safari and gave the Wranglers a miss; which is some sort of a record in Jeep’s history.
The company launched the Gladiator with four trims plus a limited Launch Edition trim, but it expanded the lineup with three more trims within a year. The Gladiator was a true-blue Jeep, but it isn’t bringing in volumes for the automaker, perhaps because of its slightly-higher pricing. But, a year post its launch with new trims in line and price discounts to lure the customers, can the Gladiator rake in sales numbers for Jeep?
2020 Acura NSX - Driven
Most supercars live a life of unexplored potential. In a world where a Toyota Camry can hit 60 mph in a once-shocking six seconds, and six-figure performance machines have to cut that time in half to be relevant, few cars can be pushed to their limits in legal conditions. And the higher the limits, the fewer the chances you have to approach them. That means most supercars spend their days flaunting their looks — along with the prestige associated with their extreme capabilities — between occasional bursts of all-out speed.
Here’s One Good Way to Dress Up the New Porsche 935
Porsche shocked everyone when, out of nowhere, it decided to revive one of the most insane racing cars from its past, the winged Porsche 935. Based on the already ludicrous 911 GT2 RS ClubSport, a 700-horsepower track day weapon, the new 935, also known as the 935/19, is the sort of car that blends everything we love from the days of yesteryear with everything with love from nowadays.
Only 77 of these were made and Jonsiball decided to do away with the classic Martini livery and, instead, dress the 935/19 in this "X-Ray" scheme that makes the car look like it belongs in Blade Runner.
Someone Mixed the Aston Martin DB11 With a Fiat 124 Spider and It Actually Looks Good
The Aston Martin DB11 is an amazing car. And for what it is, despite the lower niche it sits in, the Fiat 124 Spider – and Mazda MX-5 Miata for the matter – is just as awesome in its own way. The former is a thoroughbred sports car that, in its base form, pumps out 503 horsepower from a turbocharged V-8. The latter, on the other hand, is good for a measly-in-comparison 164 horsepower from a much smaller 1.4-liter four-banger. What if things were different, though? What if the Aston Martin DB11 actually carried around a significant portion of Fiat 124 DNA? It sounds outlandish, but one rendering artist set out to find out, and the truth is, it actually looks pretty awesome – let’s just hope that a 1.4-liter engine is nowhere to be found.
