2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder

2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder

Rear-wheel-drive fun with infinite headroom. Also notably more affordable

The 2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder is the facelifted version of the original model launched in 2016. It’s basically an upgraded variant of the rear-wheel-drive alternative to the standard Huracan, which features an AWD layout. Visual upgrades are in line with the rest of the Huracan lineup, but the RWD stands out with a unique front bumper and rear diffuser. More notably, it’s more powerful than the old model, as it now features the V-10 engine of the old AWD model. The naturally aspirated mill cranks out 602 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. The 2020 Huracan Evo RWD Spyder hits 62 mph from a standing start in 3.5 seconds.

The Most Powerful BMW M Engine Wasn't Found In a BMW - Until Now, That Is

The Most Powerful BMW M Engine Wasn’t Found In a BMW - Until Now, That Is

BMW just took the gloves off. The M5 CS boasts the most powerful street engine BMW has ever made

Throughout its existence, BMW has made some pretty epic engines (and some not so epic), but their most powerful engine wasn’t actually put in a BMW car. It was the McLaren F1 that received BMW’s S70/2 6.1-liter V-12 back in the day, and for a long time, that was the brand’s most powerful engine. Until now, that is. Things have changed and we have the BMW M5 CS to thank for that.

Here’s Why the 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi Is the best Scooby Ever

The Blob Eye WRX STi is still very relevant today

1992 Bugatti EB 110 SS

1992 Bugatti EB 110 SS

Laying the foundation for the Bugatti Veyron, four turbos at a time

When Bugatti launched production of its world-beating, 1,000-horsepower, 8.0-liter, quad-turbo Veyron in 2005, the auto world went just a little bit of crazy. And rightfully so. That said, the Veyron owes a good deal of its success to this – the EB 110. Produced in limited numbers throughout the ‘90s, it was the only production model created during Italian entrepreneur Romano Artioli’s short stint as Bugatti head honcho. Considered one of the very first street-worthy mid-engine supercars of the ‘90s, the EB 110 was a true technological tour de force in its own right, with a high-revving, quad-turbo, 60-valve, 3.5-liter V-12 engine mounted behind the cabin, an active rear wing, and lightweight carbon fiber body. Indeed, prior to the release of the legendary McLaren F1, the EB 110 was in contention for fastest production car on the planet.
