This Tastefully-Customized Audi RS6 Avant Shows You Why Wagons Shouldn't Be Taken For Granted

This Tastefully-Customized Audi RS6 Avant Shows You Why Wagons Shouldn’t Be Taken For Granted

Digital steering wheel, ABT body kit, and 700 horses are just some of this wagon’s accolades

The Audi RS6 Avant is a mighty fast wagon and we can’t get over it. It strikes the perfect balance of an SUV and a sedan. As practical and spacious as an SUV and comes with sedan-like driving dynamics. The RS6 Avant also happens to be a hot favorite with the tuners. While these renditions are generally pretty good, you have to customize it based on the stuff offered by that one particular tuner only.

However, here’s one example of a heavily customized RS6 Avant that comes with parts and accessories from various equipment manufacturers and we love it to bits. Nice, huh?

The McLaren Artura Is Fast, But Not Fast Enough to Be a Dodge Challenger

The McLaren Artura Is Fast, But Not Fast Enough to Be a Dodge Challenger

Well, it’s the Dodge Challenger Super Stock, and Only by 0.2 seconds in the quarter mile

The Artura is the stepping stone for McLaren moving into the future. It is the third hybrid model (behind the P1 and the Speedtail) and the first plug-in hybrid to roll out of the automaker’s factory. There was a lot of buzz surrounding its powertrain, but a few months into the launch, we now have some stats that give us an idea of how good (or bad) the Artura is.

As it turns out, the supercar can hit 60 mph from rest in three seconds flat and quarter-mile in 10.7 seconds. Impressive? Oh yes. However, it’s not as quick as the Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock to a quarter-mile.

This 1998 Subaru Imprezza 22B STi Is As Pristine As It Is Rare

This is a very rare chance to get a highly-collectable Subaru Impreza 22B STI

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.

Will You Forgive GM for the Crap Quality of the C8 Corvette if the C9 Looks Like this?

Will You Forgive GM for the Crap Quality of the C8 Corvette if the C9 Looks Like this?

This concept will never see daylight unless GM rebrands itself as a European carmaker

Chevrolet got the performance right for its first-ever mid-engine production car but in doing so, it kind of missed the whole point of what a well-made interior should look and feel like. But what if the carmaker came up with a next-generation C9 that had a more European flavor and looked like Leyang Bai’s design study?

Porsche Spent 3,100 Miles At Full Throttle Trying to Make The New 911 GT3 Fail

Porsche Spent 3,100 Miles At Full Throttle Trying to Make The New 911 GT3 Fail

Reliability doesn’t come easy and Porsche’s motorsport experience shaped that concept in the 911 GT3

Today’s sports cars and race cars are a lot more reliable than those of the previous decade. In part, this is due to advances in technology and assembly techniques, but carmakers are also more poised on torturing their cars before they finally release them on the market. Case in point: Porsche and the grueling reliability tests that the new 911 GT3 had to endure.

This 2006 Ferrari F430 Is the Queen of Naturally Aspirated Thrills

This 2006 Ferrari F430 Is the Queen of Naturally Aspirated Thrills

The F430 is a special model that ticked a lot of firsts for Ferrari moving forward

The Ferrari F430 was unveiled at the 2004 Paris Motor Show as a successor to the Ferrari 360. It came with a whole lot of changes compared to its predecessor, especially in the aerodynamic efficiency department. The F430 now generated a greater downforce, thus instilling more confidence at higher speeds. The supercar was in production for about five years from 2004 to 2009 wherein Ferrari make around 15,000 examples of it. Not exactly a rare breed, but the F430 came with a naturally aspirated V-8 and a lot of heritage-inspired elements that make it a looker even to this day.

A 2006 example finished in the Rosso Corsa red shade with 20,000 miles on the odo has revisited the Bring-a-Trailer auction and here’s your chance to grab the beauty.

After seeing This Rendering, Toyota Definitely Needs to Build a GR 86 Shooting Brake

After seeing This Rendering, Toyota Definitely Needs to Build a GR 86 Shooting Brake

This rendering might eventually inspire Toyota to give us a GR86 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 Ferrari 512 BB "Koenig Special" is your chance to own a 1980s poster car

Can The Lamborghini Urus Stand Up Against The Likes Of The Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat and The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk?

Can The Lamborghini Urus Stand Up Against The Likes Of The Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat and The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk?

That’s three V-8s with a combined power output of over 2,000 horses! What’s not to like?

The sight of seeing SUVs rocket down a quarter-mile in a little over 10 seconds is exhilarating. Automakers have realized that people love performance SUVs and it could rake in big numbers for them. Take the Urus for instance. It has been the company’s best-seller since its launch. Even Dodge decided to let all hell break loose by throwing in a supercharged engine under its family SUV’s hood. Throw the Jeep Trackhawk in the mix and you have three of the best performance SUVs that money can buy today.

The folks at Throttle House brought them all together on a drag strip for some straight-line battles. The Urus has obliterated competition mercilessly so far, but can it reign over the mighty powerful FCA....I mean Stellantis twins?

Chevrolet Confirms An Electric Silverado, But Will It Be a Rebadged Hummer EV?

Chevrolet Confirms An Electric Silverado, But Will It Be a Rebadged Hummer EV?

Chevy is late to the party but don’t discount it because the automaker has done its groundwork already

It was pretty hard to digest that one of the top truck manufacturers in the U.S., Chevrolet, was mum about electric trucks. At a time where every EV manufacturer was coming up with an offering to the open-bed segment, Chevy was out of the limelight for a very long time. Ford, on the other hand, has been active for years now, right from challenging Tesla to making official announcements.

But finally, the Bowtie has stepped up and officially announced its first-ever electric pickup truck in the form of the Silverado EV. And the icing on the cake? A range of 400 miles!

Here’s What Different About the 2021 Mercedes CLS

Mercedes-Benz is keeping the CLS lineup simple and tidy

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz CLS will arrive at dealerships in early 2022. For now, Mercedes-Benz is telling and showing us what we should expect from the sleek four-door. At the same time, the entry-level, rear-wheel-drive CLS 450 and the beefier AMG CLS 53 are out of the lineup, which only leaves us with the all-wheel-drive CLS 450 4Matic.

This 2022 Toyota GR86 Convertible Is Strangely Attractive

This Hungarian rendering of a Toyota GR86 Convertible has got us wondering whether Toyota would go for an open-top version of their compact sports car

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.
