Audi A4 Avant Spied as the Last Generation with an Internal Combustion Engine
We’ve finally laid eyes on the B10-generation Audi A4 Avant, and it’s essentially the last of a dying breed. Scheduled to go on sale sometime in late-2022 or early 2023, this will be the last generation of the A4 that rock an internal combustion engine, but you will have until around 2030 to get your hands on one if it follows the same, seven-year life cycle. As for this prototype, it has a smaller but wider singleframe grille, and this sure does look like a production body.
The front end appears to feature a cleaner design, but it is wearing some pretty heavy camo/ The vertical corner air inlets are quite small and it looks like Audi is integrating the fog lights into the main headlight clusters. The headlights themselves do look to be production and are largely uncovered, so this is what you can expect from the production model.
Around back, Audi has yet to apply the production taillights, so take what you see here with a grain of salt. Something that has caught our attention, though, is what we can make out form the cutouts around the reverse lights. Not only can we see how wide the new taillights are, but it also appears as if there will be a wide trim piece here or, dare I say, and LED light strip connecting the two taillights.
So far, we’ve yet to see anything from the interior, but from these shots, we can tell that Audi is finally ditching the dash-mounted infotainment display. The powertrains from the current model will carry over with minor tweaks for power and efficiency, but you can expect some more notable upgrades to come down the line before the fuel powered A4 is finally retired.
This Nissan Skyline GT-R Nismo 400R Is Selling For Nearly $2.2 Million
When people think of the Nissan Skyline GT-R, it’s the R34 that often comes to mind and not the R33. Still, this generation of the Skyline GT-R offered breathtaking performance during its time. But if you want the ultimate R33, here’s your chance to own the final Nismo 400R ever built.
Watch The Suzuki Hayabusa Come Out All Guns Blazing On The Tesla Model S Plaid
Superbikes versus supercars have always been fascinating. Now, the Tesla Model S Plaid doesn’t technically qualify as a supercar, but given its drag strip performances, it won’t be wrong to call it one. Brooks from ‘DragTimes’ recently pit his Tesla Model S Plaid against a 2012 Suzuki Hayabusa. The Hayabusa had some changes made to it, including a tune that helped it put over 200 horses to the rear wheel. Do you think it will be enough to give Tesla that rare ‘L’?
The 2023 Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato Shows Us That Taking A Supercar Off-Roading Is Now A Reality
Lamborghini tested some uncharted waters back in 2019 when it unveiled an all-terrain supercar concept based on the Huracan called the Huracan Sterrato. Well, not exactly unchartered since the company has produced the LM002, but you get the gist. As it turns out, the folks from Sant’Agata Bolognese weren’t just flirting with the idea. Our spy photographers spotted the Huracan Sterrato in the wild, suggesting that the off-road supercar is going to production and it could come out as early as this year!
Alfa Romeo FNM Onca: The Italian Ford Mustang You Did Not Know About

Porsche Taycan Is Formula E’s New Safety Car
Formula E, or, by its official name the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, is a single-seater motorsport championship for electric cars. So, it should come as no surprise to know that the safety car will also be an electric car. This season the responsibility goes to the Porsche Taycan and the official racetrack debut will happen at the opening round of the Formula E season on 28/29 January in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.
China’s 2022 Ford Mondeo Is Proof That Sedans Are Still Alive
Just a few months ago, the Ford Mondeo was revealed ahead of its official debut by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, as it seems to be the case whenever a new vehicle will soon be released in China’s huge car market. This time though, Ford has officially launched their midsize sedan, and it’s designed, engineered, and assembled in China.
BMW Says Goodbye To V-12 Engines With Special Edition M760i xDrive
We knew for quite some time now that BMW’s V-8 and V-12 engines are living on borrowed time. In fact, when the new generation 7 Series will arrive at the end of 2022, none of these engines will be offered. Instead customers will have to choose between straight-six, hybrid or all-electric versions.
Now, BMW confirmed that the last V-12 will be produced in June 2022 and, to mark the event, it will launch a total of 12 M760i Final V12 Edition units. Each will carry a price tag of $200,000, plus destination fees and will be distinguished by unique badging, wheels, and a vast collection of exterior colors and upholstery.
Aston Martin DBX S Spied During Winter Test
Earlier today Aston Martin dropped a teaser video that announced the arrival of the "world’s most powerful luxury SUV" on February 1st, 2022. Just a few hours later our spy photographers were able to catch the upcoming range-topping version of the DBX out for some last-minute testing in the snow.
Vorsteiner’s Aero Kit Aims To Fix The BMW M3 And M4’s Grille
While the current BMW M3 and M4 are still relatively new cars as they haven’t even reached two years in their life cycle, it seems like these high-performance cars have already existed for way longer due to how much people are still talking about its schnoz. Thankfully, Vorsteiner may have a fix for that.
RAM 1500 TRX Takes On An A90 Supra In A 1/4 Mile Face-off
The Drag Racing and Car Stuff Channel put out yet another super video over the weekend, where a RAM 1500 TRX took on an A90 Supra over the ¼ Mile. Now, as usual, I can’t really confirm the exact specs, but as with anything that hits the drag strip, it’s unlikely that the two contenders we have here are stock. Regardless, we’ll look at the baseline figures so that we can at least have a datum to work off of.
This 1970 Plymouth Superbird 440 Six-Pack Is a Homologation Special Worth Checking Out
The classic car market is at an all-time height and some truly amazing vehicles come up for sale.

The Tesla Model S Plaid Should Be Sued For Emotionally Scarring This Tuned Audi RS3!
After wreaking havoc on sports cars and supercars in 2021, the Tesla Model S Plaid’s drag domination continues in 2022, starting with the Audi RS3. Sam uploaded a video of the Tesla Plaid taking on a tuned Audi RS3 on his YouTube channel ‘Sam CarLegion’. The result? Calling it a loss for the RS3 would be an understatement!
The Lamborghini Urus EVO was Caught Undisguised in the Arctic!
Lamborghini recently announced that it was planning launch four new models in 2022, and while we don’t know everything, we know that the Aventador’s V-12 replacement should be one of them and another will be the car that you see here: The Lamborghini Urus EVO. These new spy shots give us a little bit of insight into what we can expect from the updated Urus, and right away, it’s easy to spot the updated front fascia with revised air intakes. These are wider and more eye catching than before. This prototype doesn’t feature any kind of change to the headlights, however, it could be in the cards before it’s debut.
The rear design will also change a bit, as you can see from the new rear fascia. The taillights are still the same as the current model, but these too could change. This is a mid-cycle update, but it’s been said that the facelifted Urus could debut with a little more power under the hood. The current Urus delivers 641 horsepower and 626 pound-feet of torque from its 4.0-liter V-8, and reasonable expectation would be around 655 horsepower. Why not more? Well, since the Urus Hybrid will likely have the same powertrain as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, it will have 671 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque, and it will probably be the most powerful of the lineup. So, the non-hybrid Urus can’t exceed those figures.
For now, we don’t know much more, but check out the gallery below to see the new spy shots for yourself!
The Mercedes AMG GLE 53 Is Also About To Receive An Update

Jet-Powered Tesla vs PLAID, Need We Say More
2021 can quite easily be called the year of the Plaid. Tesla’s newest flagship has pretty much annihilated the competition in drag races, ever since it went on sale, with the exception of a few of course, and what better way to kick things off for this year with yet another Plaid duel, this time going up against an older Model S, However, this is no ordinary Model S, but it is Warped Perceptions jet-powered P85. This should be an interesting one. Let’s look at some numbers now.

Honda Teases Us with the New Civic Type R Once Again
Even with COVID-19 and the digital world looking to wipe live, brick-and-mortar auto shows from existence, Japan is giving these ancient relics at least one last shot. The Tokyo Auto Salon has produced several interesting cars in 2022, although most will never see the light of day ever again. Honda, however, showed off the new Civic Type R in the flesh, albeit covered in camouflage. The Japanese marque also released a new teaser video to get even more hype for the hottest of hatchbacks.
While most of the attention for the past few days has been focused on Toyota’s Gazoo Racing exhibition at the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon, another equally-important model has just been unveiled by the Japanese automaker in Japan in the form of the Toyota Noah and Voxy minivans.
