Yes - A Volkswagen Golf Can Outgun the Ferrari 488 Pista

Yes - A Volkswagen Golf Can Outgun the Ferrari 488 Pista

There is a catch here, but a stock Volkswagen Golf can outgun a stock Ferrari 488 Pista!

It sounds pretty absurd at the onset that a Volkswagen Golf can beat a Ferrari 488 Pista in a quarter-mile race. But, it actually can… on a technicality. The folks at ‘Driven Media’ pit these two very unlikely contenders in a drag race. It goes without saying that the Italian supercar will win, but is there a way the Golf can get the W? Well, it can if the Ferrari treats it as a standing drag race and the Golf as a rolling race. But, at what speed? Let’s find out.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E - Driven

Ford’s first truly cool EV put to the test – is it up to our standards?

There’s no denying that in its short time in existence, the Ford Mustang Mach-E has seen its fair share of controversy. It started off when the name was officially announced, and to be honest, even a year in, not everyone is convinced that Ford’s first important EV is worthy of the Mach name. Is the Mustang Mach-E a true Mustang? Is it worth the price? How does it stack up against its non-Tesla competitors like the Volvo XC40 Recharge and the Audi E-Tron? The answers to these questions will probably surprise you.

2022 Acura ILX

The company’s smallest compact sedan rolls into another year without any noticeable upgrades.

Since the 2013 model year, the ILX has come a long way without the need of introducing a new generation. But the 2022 model year is just as same as the2019 facelift which makes no sense. However, it is the cheapest Acura to wear its expensive badging and in our opinion, it is still a good-looking car. So what might be the things that could have been better?

This 1979 Custom Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" Is The Culmination of 1970s Excess

The 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" is a 600+ horsepower one-off that could be yours

The first automobile was invented in 1886 and since then many great cars have emerged. But even nearly 140 years after the automobile’s invention, there are very few cars that have a cult following as zealous as that of the Porsche 911. This is especially true for the air-cooled models, which are all-time classics. If we combine the significance of an air-cooled 911 with the cocaine-snorting excess of the 1970s, we can see how a one-off 1979, guards red, modified Porsche 911 Turbo can be listed for $599,000 by a Florida dealership.

Volkswagen was supposed to debut the ID.5 GTX at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show in Munich, but canceled it at the last minute.

From stubbornly making the engine work in the back of the car to making an electric sedan that weighs well over two tons handle like a dream. As a result of this meticulousness, Porsche produces some of the greatest sports cars in the world.
