You're More Than Likely Assured an "L" If You Decide to Race This Dodge Viper

You’re More Than Likely Assured an "L" If You Decide to Race This Dodge Viper

A record-setting run for a record-setting American sports car

Dodge Vipers are famous for being fast; the most recent iteration of the American sports car featured an 8.4-liter V-10 engine that produced 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque and it was able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 208 mph. But as fast as the Viper was before it was retired, nothing can prepare you for this Viper. This refers to a heavily modified 2006 Dodge Viper that recently set the record for the fastest recorded speed in a Viper when it clocked a mind-bending top speed run that maxed out at 252 mph. The record was set at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds in West Palm Beach, Florida. The 252-mph run was far and away the fastest a Dodge Viper has gone. Best of all, the Viper that did it is actually street legal.

Tuner Gintani Motor Works has Created the First Twin-Turbo Porsche 911 GT3 RS and It Sounds Amazing

Tuner Gintani Motor Works has Created the First Twin-Turbo Porsche 911 GT3 RS and It Sounds Amazing

“I think we just birthed the new @Porsche widow-maker”

We don’t have a lot to tell you or show you yet, but Gintani Motor Works has created one hell of a beast out of a Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The company does offer an ECU tuning kit GT3 and GT3 RS, but it’s limited to a 25-horsepower and 15 pound-feet increase in power output, but this is an entirely different animal. The tuning company has managed to do what nobody thought would ever be done – it’s created the world’s first twin-turbo Porsche 911 GT3 RS! Right now, we only have a couple of short videos to go by, but based on the sound of the car alone, this thing is out of this world.

The Range-Topping Cadillac CT5-V Will Have a V-8, But Not the One You Want

The Range-Topping Cadillac CT5-V Will Have a V-8, But Not the One You Want

What’s it going to be, Cadillac?

There’s been a lot of talk regarding what the top-dog Cadillac CT5-V will hide under the hood, with the likely candidate being Caddy’s new Blackwing 4.2-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine. A recent report, however, suggests that the CT5-V range-topper will indeed get a V-8 engine, but it won’t be Blackwing-badged. It’s safe to say we didn’t expect that, but for now, we’re also taking this with a pinch of salt until official word comes from Cadillac to confirm or deny the rumors.

The 2020 Polaris Slingshot Can Be Had With An Auto Gearbox… Sort Of

The 2020 Polaris Slingshot Can Be Had With An Auto Gearbox… Sort Of

A new engine that’s lighter and packs more oomph is also available

The Polaris Slingshot has always looked like a mechanized Zerg ready to devour mile after mile of asphalt. For the 2020 model, looks remain pretty much the same, albeit with a slight touch of extra cohesion overall. It’s the internals, however, that bring the revolution.

Perhaps the biggest change for the Polaris Slingshot is the introduction, for the first time ever, of an automatic gearbox. It’s not an automatic per se, but a hydraulically actuated five-speed manual that will broaden the customer base as the 2020 Slingshot can now be driven by those unwilling to climb in a manual-gearbox vehicle.

2020 Laffite G-Tec X-Road

2020 Laffite G-Tec X-Road

Forget about the Urus drifting on sand, this is a supercar designed to love mud

Remember the Zarooq Sand Racer? You don’t? Well, that’s no biggie, because it died at some point a couple of years ago, but now it’s back under a different name, with a polished attitude.

The Zarooq Sand Racer was supposed to open a new niche, that of off-road supercars. It packed a V-6 good for 300 horsepower and looked like a hybrid between a Dakar rally car and an exotic, but was rather short-lived. This is where the Laffite G-Tec X-Road comes to pick up where the Sand Racer left off.

The Bugatti Chiron Opens the Door For Even More New Cars in 2020

The Bugatti Chiron Opens the Door For Even More New Cars in 2020

“Derivatives are a must,” says Bugatti CEO

There shouldn’t be any doubt that Bugatti ended 2019 on a high note. Its 1,577-horsepower Chiron Super Sport 300+ went past the 300 mph barrier and it also spawned the likes of La Voiture Noire and Centodieci.

U.K.’s Autocar had a chat with Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann, who revealed that the Chiron will be further used as a base for future Bugatti models. Think in the lines of Divo and the above-mentioned Voiture Noire and Centodieci rather than mere special editions.

Aston Martin Limits Torque Output on the 2019 DBS Superleggera

Aston Martin Limits Torque Output on the 2019 DBS Superleggera

Despite weighing just over 4,000 pounds, there’s still too much torque for lower gears.

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera can be called a number of things, but one thing it will never be called is slow. This has never been more evident than in the latest video released by The Smoking Tire. However, we’ve learned something else, and that is that Aston Martin was forced to limit torque output until the car moves into fourth gear. Seems strange for a car that weighs a little over 4,000 pounds and pumps out 663 pound-feet of torque, right?

The Hennessey Venom F5 Just Bested the Bugatti Chiron In an Unexpected Way

The Hennessey Venom F5 Just Bested the Bugatti Chiron In an Unexpected Way

The Hennessey Venom F5’s carbon fiber tub isn’t much heavier than that of the McLaren Senna

Now that the Bugatti Super Sport 300+ has broken the 300-mph barrier the next goal is obviously 310 mph, and that’s precisely what Hennessey aims to hit with the Venom F5. It’s going to take a lot to pull it off, especially considering Bugatti had to go all-in and build an impressive but highly modified version of the Chiron to pull off that 300-mph run. So, what’s Hennessey to do? Well, it all starts off by building a lightweight carbon fiber tub that is 2,000 Nm stiffer than that of the Bugatti Chiron. New pictures of the carbon fiber tub have been released, and this is what we know about it.

2021 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS 4.0

2021 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS 4.0

The naturally aspirated flat-six makes a comeback!

The 2021 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 is a naturally aspirated version of the existing 718 Cayman. An update of the current 718 Cayman GTS, the GTS 4.0 ditches the turbocharged, 2.5-liter flat-four engine in favor of a 4.0-liter flat-six mill. The engine is shared with the range-topping 2020 718 Cayman GT4, but detuned in order to slot the GTS 4.0 a bit lower in the lineup.

The 2021 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 was unveiled alongside an identical version of the 718 Boxster. The 2021 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 is expected to hit dealerships for the 2021 model year. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.

This Is the Best Porsche Carrera GT Crash Course You'll See All Year

This Is the Best Porsche Carrera GT Crash Course You’ll See All Year

Harry Metcalfe really has a nice way of making tons of info sound clear and logical

The Porsche Carrera GT is one of the automotive world’s icons. Back when Porsche introduced it, the supercar was met with a lot of affection by car nuts because, well, it was an engineering marvel and it was a Porsche, but at the same time, it also came after the first-generation Cayenne, which at the time, did extremely well to upset every Porschephile out there.

A select few have had a chance to drive the Porsche Carrera GT and even fewer got to own one. In the U.S., a Carrera GT sold for $448,400, as per Car and Driver. These days, you’ll need to shell out north of $1 million to get one at auction.

Bet You Didn’t Know the U.S. Air Force Uses the Chevy Camaro to Help Land U2 Spy Planes

They need a car that’s quick on a strait and the Chevrolet Camaro does the job

There are a lot of businesses and institutions that use cars to support their activities. You’ve got your police forces, the army, your airport support vehicles, you get the point.

Speaking of airports, the U.S. Air Forces use Chevrolet Camaro SS chase cars that help land U-2 spy planes. That’s right, the mighty U-2 needs to be guided for a successful landing from a fast car because its highly-specialized build is more suited to high-altitude flying than landing easily.

What Is the Koenigsegg Mission 500 Concept and When Can You See It?

What Is the Koenigsegg Mission 500 Concept and When Can You See It?

If the rumors are true, the Swedes are aiming high

Koenigsegg-related bits of news are a rare occurrence on the internet, unless the Swedish carmaker really has something to communicate. In fact, since Christian von Koenigsegg announced that Koenigsegg appointed Alexander ‘Sasha’ Selipanov as its Head of Design, there’s been complete radio silence.

But with the 2020 Geneva Motor Show already profiling on the horizon, we are now presented with rumors about a Koenigsegg Jesko-based concept car slated to make an appearance in March. Its purpose? At this point, rather unclear, but it could involve reaching or breaking the 500 kph or 310 mph speed barrier.

Watch a 940-Horsepower Mustang Shelby GT500 Pull Off a 9-Second Quarter Mile Run

Watch a 940-Horsepower Mustang Shelby GT500 Pull Off a 9-Second Quarter Mile Run

That. Was. Quick.

It was only recently that we witnessed the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 proving its mettle when facing the likes of Ferrari 812 Superfast, Dodge Challenger Hellcat, and Porsche 911 GT3 RS. As it turns out, the GT500 can not only keep up with the Porsche on the track but also avoid making a fool of itself in a straight-line race against the Superfast, obliterating the Hellcat in the process.

And while the amount of performance baked into the stock Shelby GT500 is downright impressive, a smartly-tuned one is capable of even more greatness, such as dispatching the quarter mile in less than ten seconds.

2020 Lotus Evija

2020 Lotus Evija

The world’s most powerful production car has arrived

The arrival of the Lotus Evija marks a watershed moment for Lotus. It wasn’t that long ago when the British automaker was floundering. It was strapped for cash and it barely produced enough models to thrive in a segment that had no shortage of worthy adversaries. Just when things were taking a turn for the worse, Chinese auto giant Geely came in, bought Lotus, and, well, the rest is history.

The Evija all-electric hypercar is the first Lotus product to be unveiled since its fortunes turned for the better. And what a product it is. The Evija is a technological tour de force, a stunning creation born from technological innovations that trace its roots to motor racing. Everything, and I mean everything, about the Lotus Evija is extraordinary. From its incredible aerodynamic design to the four electric motors and 70-kWh battery pack that feeds them, the Lotus Evija is the pinnacle of all-electric hypercar development. It also happens to be the most powerful production car in the world. All that for $2.1 million? This is no dream, folks. The Lotus Evija has arrived.

2020 Mercedes-AMG A45

2020 Mercedes-AMG A45

The company’s cool hatchback goes wilder than ever!

The 2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 is the range-topping version of the fourth-generation A-Class hatchback. Unveiled in 2019, it slots above the AMG A35 in the range thanks to a more powerful engine, a more aggressive exterior, and extra equipment on the inside. Powered by a redesigned version of the AMG-tuned four-cylinder engine that cranks out 382 horsepower, the 2020 AMG A45 is the most powerful A-Class to date. But for the first time ever, Mercedes-Benz introduced an S-badged version of the hatchback, with even more power. In this tune, the AMG A45 delivers an amazing 416 horses, more than any other hot-hatch on the market as of 2020. This four-cylinder is also the most powerful of its kind in production, as well as the engine with the highest horsepower per liter. Let’s find out more about the 2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 in the comprehensive review below.

2019 Lamborghini Huracan Evo

2019 Lamborghini Huracan Evo

A mid-cycle facelift with aggressive looks and more power

The Lamborghini Huracan Evo is the mid-cycle facelift of the company’s entry-level supercar. Although it’s described as a new-generation model, it’s exactly what the name says, an evolution of the nameplate. It was introduced in early 2019, almost five years after the Huracan went into production.

Design-wise, the Evo is based on the higher performance Huracan Performante. It features more aggressive front and rear ends, as well as a bespoke set of wheels. Inside the cabin, there’s an infotainment system with a big touchscreen, while motivation comes from the beefed-up engine from the Performante. While it won’t set a new Nurburgring record, the Evo is notably quicker than its predecessor. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

Update 1/6/2019: Lamborghini has announced a new RWD version of the Huracan EVO that is designed specifically to offer a “more engaging experience” for the driver. Check out what’s new along with pricing in our special section below
