M Performance Parts for the BMW M3 and BMW M4 Take Extreme Even Further
The M3 and M4 cats are out of the bag. Both of them get a twin-turbo inline-six first introduced by the X3 and X4 M crossovers and both can deliver up to 503 horsepower in Competition trim. Standard stuff aside, BMW is letting customers spice up its polarizing coupe and sedan with a long list of M Performance bits and bobs.
This Is The Most Efficient Classic Land Rover Ever Made
What started as guilt-trip driving around in an oil-burning-engined car to access the innermost parts of Australia resulted in a start-up that now converts, sells, and rents electric Land Rovers. Australia-based Jaunt Motors recently converted an old diesel Land Rover into an electric car, the reason behind it being to create an environment-friendly four-wheel-drive vehicle. The yesteryear SUV now comes with electric motors and Tesla batteries powering it. Is this the best way to enjoy classic, hardcore SUVs without feeling guilty about harming the environment?
Would You Buy This Custom Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Convertible for $95,000?
The current Dodge Challenger is built on a really old and dated platform, but this hasn’t stopped it from competing on a solid level with the more modern Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. That’s because Dodge designed high-performance versions such as the Hellcat and the Demon. However, there’s one field where the Challenger can’t compete: the convertible market. Although the original was available as a cabriolet, Dodge didn’t not create a drop-top version of the third-gen Challenger. But if you’re dying to drive one, Fair Oaks Motors is selling an after market conversion. The good news is that it’s based on the cool SRT Hellcat and it retails for less than $100,000.
Did You Know You Needed A DTM-Inspired Mercedes-Benz G-Class? Neither DId We, Until Now
What do you get when you throw Mercedes’ Chief Design Officer, Gorden Wagener, and Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Artistic Director, Virgil Abloh, in a room and task them with redesigning the legendary Mercedes-Benz G-Class? Our first instinct would be something like the Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Laundaulet complete with a lavish, Vuitton inspired cabin fit for a movie star, but that instinct is completely off the mark as the result of this unlikely collaboration is something called ’Project Gelandewagen,’ and it’s more German Touring Car Championship than Hollywood Boulevard.
2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette by Pandem
Widebody kits look good on virtually any car. Whether it’s a drift-spec Toyota Supra or a humble Daihatsu Copen, everything can be tricked out to please the eye with a neatly-designed, flared-out body kit. Including the mid-engined Chevy C8 Corvette, as Pandem was kind enough to demonstrate.
2021 Ford Mustang R67 by Aviar Motors
Ford is yet to gift the Mustang with an all-electric powertrain. Of course, we now have the Ford Mustang Mach E electric SUV but indisputably, that’s not even close to what the Mustang stands for. There’s also the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400, but that’s hardy a road-legal vehicle.
That said, Aviar Motors set up to do what Ford won’t for the time being. In the process, the Russian EV start-up found time to bake in a 1960s twist into its all-electric Mustang, which instantly doubles the (silent) muscle car’s cool factor. Here’s all you need to know about the Aviar R67.

Here’s A Rare Look Into How Bare The Inside of a Tesla Model 3 Pikes Peak Racer Is
Alright, there’s no hiding from the fact that Teslas are super fast in a straight line. But taking your Tesla Model 3 to a drag race and enlisting it at Pikes Peak are two very different dishes.
Pikes Peak is one of, if not the most dangerous motorsports competitions. So you don’t just show up in a high-powered, light-as-a-feather car and race up the mountain, but you also need to take the road condition into account (smooth asphalt is a commodity there) as well as the possibility of flying off a cliff.
1968 Porsche 911 Syberia RS by H&R
Some might say that building, buying, and hooning a Safari 911 is a blasphemy. We digress. Porsche has such a solid connection with the world of rally racing (including Dakar and Monte Carlo back in the day) that a Safari-style Neunelfer feels as natural as breathing.
And while a lot of entities have been performing this sort of conversions on vintage 911s, we didn’t expect one such contraption to come from suspension specialist H&R. But it did, and it’s awesome.

This Review of a 1200-Horsepower, Twin-Turbo Cadillac Escalade Will Make You Want One
The Cadillac Escalade is the perfect sample of SUV-grade luxury in the car world, right? Well, yeah, just not this 9-second quarter-mile, LSX-powered twin-turbo Escalade. ThatDudeInBlue had a chat with the owner and went for a drive he won’t forget too soon.
2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S by Prior Design
EVs don’t get a lot of attention from tuners and for good reasons. Few electric cars on the market can claim and back up dynamic driving and there’s no point in dressing up a Nissan Leaf in a Liberty Walk widebody kit, is there?
Now, Tesla’s cars are capable of delivering high levels of performance and we’ve seen some kits tailored to imbue aerodynamics and whatnot. But then the Porsche Taycan came, and we were wondering when will someone find a way to make it wider and meaner.
