Hyperion's Hydrogen EV Hypercar is a Collection of Crazy Numbers

Hyperion’s Hydrogen EV Hypercar is a Collection of Crazy Numbers

The Hyperion XP-1 promises to combine great Performance and long Range

Plug-in and full hybrid vehicles are mostly viewed as a transition between internal combustion engines and EVs. In 2019, just two percent of light vehicles, sold in the US, were hybrids and for 2020, things have remained about the same. In the EU only one percent of vehicles are plug-in hybrids. However, with the recent talk about hydrogen, Hyperion Motors takes the opportunity to change the fate of hybrid vehicles. Their XP-1 hypercar took eight years to develop and now, the first prototype has finally taken shape. It certainly promises a lot, but can it deliver?

This Tesla Model S Plaid Roars And Grunts Like A Dodge Hellcat!

This Tesla Model S Plaid Roars And Grunts Like A Dodge Hellcat!

The burbles of a supercharged Hellcat V-8 on a Tesla Model S Plaid is intriguing and disturbing at the same time

Switching to EVs isn’t just the next step into the future. It’s a friggin’ paradigm shift. One of the things that is putting off a lot of people is how silent EVs are. If you’ve been driving an internal combustion-engined car for decades, EVs will disappoint you in the aural department. While many governments have mandated that EVs come with external speakers to notify pedestrians about the EV approaching them, Tesla has taken this to the next level.

Tesla allows you to use any soundtrack for the external speakers, and YouTuber Brooks Weisblat from Drag Times showcases the same on his Tesla Model S Plaid. In his latest video, he has enabled the Dodge Hellcat’s sound on his Plaid and it is weirdly incomprehensible to us.

The 2022 Audi RS3 Is All Show and All Go With Aggressive Design and a 401-Horspeower Inline-Five

The 2022 Audi RS3 Is All Show and All Go With Aggressive Design and a 401-Horspeower Inline-Five

For 2022, the Audi RS3 has a more menacing look and becomes even more capable

The 2022 Audi RS3 promises to retain the formula of the 1980s, turbocharged, inline-five, all-wheel-drive, 1980s Audi Quattro. The philosophy “evolution, not revolution” is often synonymous with the Porsche 911, but it appears that Audi is also (partially) following the same recipe. About 40 years ago, they gave us the boxy Quattro – a turbocharged, five-cylinder, all-wheel-drive rally monster that dominated the scene. Now, we still get the same basic recipe, but in a more modern, more practical shape, in the form of the Audi RS3, and for 2022, the super-hatch is even better.

A $7 Part Killed the $3.25 Million Valkyrie's Debut Run At the Goodwood Festival of Speed

A $7 Part Killed the $3.25 Million Valkyrie’s Debut Run At the Goodwood Festival of Speed

The Aston Martin Valkyrie suffered stage fright and stopped working during its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

A Cosworth-built 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V-12, 11,000 RPM, hybrid powertrain, 1,160 horsepower (865 kilowatts). Those are just some of the astonishing numbers of the $3.0+ million Aston Martin Valkyrie. The car is able to hit 60 mph (97 km/h) in under 3.0 seconds and only 150 units will be produced with deliveries starting in September. Moreover, there is an even rarer Valkyrie AMR Pro, limited to just 40 units. Nevertheless, the Valkyrie’s debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed turned out to be less than glamorous, as the car had an unexpected malfunction during the hill climb.
