Production Cuts Hint That There Isn't Enough Interest In the McLaren Elva

Production Cuts Hint That There Isn’t Enough Interest In the McLaren Elva

McLaren Elva production cut to less than half the initial run

The McLaren Elva was unveiled in November 2019 with a production run of 399 units. In April 2020, the British company said that production will be reduced to just 249 examples due to feedback from customers who thought that the Elva wasn’t exclusive enough.

Come September 2020 and McLaren is cutting production numbers of the supercar even more, to only 149 units. The company says the reduction is the result of the "production shutdown experienced during the global Covid-19 pandemic," but maybe the Elva isn’t as desirable as McLaren through.

The Man Behind the Ferrari F430 Has Some Interesting Thoughts on the Ferrari Roma

The Man Behind the Ferrari F430 Has Some Interesting Thoughts on the Ferrari Roma

The Roma might be one of the best-looking grand tourers on the market, but it’s not a perfect 10

Don’t get us wrong. We absolutely love what Ferrari did with the styling as far as the Roma is concerned. However, while acknowledging the Roma’s sleek lines, Frank Stephenson also argues that from his standpoint, it could have been even better.

The Tesla Model S Plaid Is Astronomically Expensive

The Tesla Model S Plaid Is Astronomically Expensive

The Tesla Model S Plain is impressive in every aspect, but it also costs a whopping $140,000

The highly anticipated Plaid version of the Tesla Model S was unveiled by Elon Murk at the company’s Battery Day event on September 20. Musk announced the car’s specs, and since then, the range-topping version was added to the Model S’ online configurator. The Model S Plaid is mighty impressive when it comes to performance and range, but it’s also incredibly expensive, costing twice as much as the Long Range model and some $45,000 more than the Performance version. It’s also the only Model S that fetches more than $100,000 before options.

Touring Aero 3 - The Car With A Huge Fin That Has No Other Purpose Other Than Look Cool

Touring Aero 3 - The Car With A Huge Fin That Has No Other Purpose Other Than Look Cool

Inspired by mid-century Alfa Romeos and the Jaguar D-Type, Carrozzeria Touring’s latest creation is here to make your jaw drop

Automakers nowadays try to make the equivalent of a Swiss knife on wheels, cars that defy the age-old class structure by mashing together the features of an all-terrain vehicle, a people-carrier, and a sedan to create a brand-new niche.

There are plenty of such purposeful models on sale, models that claim to be both practical and sporty and big while driving as if they were half their size, and the list goes on. But then there’s Touring’s Aero 3, a long-nosed, red ode to not being practical. To not trying to tick a spreadsheet-worth of targets at the same time. A car made to turn heads as it drives down the road and nothing more.

2021 BMW M4 Competition

2021 BMW M4 Competition

The 2021 BMW M4 Competition hits the ground with 503 horsepower and optional AWD

The 2021 BMW M4 Competition is a higher-performance version of the second-generation M4. A successor to the old M4 Competition, this nameplate is no longer a limited-edition model, but it has been included in the lineup alongside the regular M4. BMW is pretty adopting the same strategy as Mercedes-Benz, which offers two power versions of the C 63 S Coupe. An evolutionary design of the previous model on the outside, the 2021 M4 Competition introduces a new, massive front kidney grille and a twin-turbo inline-six engine rated at an impressive 503 horsepower. Not just the most powerful M4 ever built, surpassing the old M4 GTS, the 2021 M4 Competition is also the first M4 model to feature an all-wheel-drive system.

Cool Car for Sale: 1991 Lamborghini Diablo GT Tribute

Cool Car for Sale: 1991 Lamborghini Diablo GT Tribute

Few - if any - 1990s supercars were crazier than the Lamborghini Diablo, but the Diablo GT was something else

Lamborghini only concocted the Diablo GT late in the supercar’s career but ask any Lambo nut and they’ll tell you it was well worth the wait. The GT had a radically tweaked body kit, a bigger engine, and a spartan interior.

Sadly, the U.S. didn’t get the GT as it was an Europe-only affair, but some eager owners imported a few examples Stateside. The car we’re showing you today is not a pure Diablo GT, but one that was redesigned to look like it.

The Aston Martin Victor is a One-Off Supercar with Vulcan and One-77 Gear

The Aston Martin Victor is a One-Off Supercar with Vulcan and One-77 Gear

The Aston Martin Victor is inspired by Vantage and DBS models of the 1970s

Aston Martin has recently expanded beyond its usual three-vehicle lineup. It also offers an SUV now, a track-only supercar called the Vulcan, and two more performance cars, including the Valkyrie, are set to follow. Now, Aston Martin is flexing its Q division muscle with a unique supercar called the Victor. It’s inspired by the V8 Vantage model of the 1970s and 1980s and the DBS V8 from the late 1970s, also known at the RHAM/1, developed for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It combines technology from the Valkyrie, Vulcan, and One-77, and it looks really cool on the outside.

The Updated Ferrari Portofino Caries an M Badge, More Power, and a New Transmission

The Updated Ferrari Portofino Caries an M Badge, More Power, and a New Transmission

The Ferrari Portofino M revives Modificata badge with extra power and new gearbox

It’s been just a week since we spotted Ferrari testing a facelifted version of the Portofino camouflaged from nose to rear, and the Italian automaker has already unveiled the revised model. It’s called the Portofino M, and it features a range of upgrades inside and out, a beefed-up V-8 engine, and a brand-new transmission. The first Ferrari to be unveiled entirely online, the Portofino M marks the return of the "M" badge. Short of Modificata, which indicates extensive updates, this badge has been used on a couple of cars in the 1990s and 2000s. Notable examples include the 575M Maranello from 2002 and the F512 M, the third iteration of the Testarossa, in 1994.

2021 Maserati MC20

2021 Maserati MC20

Maserati returns to the supercar market with a twin-turbo, V-6 coupe

The 2021 Maserati MC20 is a mid-engined supercar that the Italian company unveiled in September 2020. The brand’s first supercar since 2005, the MC20 is considered a spiritual successor to the MC12, although the two are far from related. Not only the 2021 Maserati MC20 is smaller, but it’s also powered by a twin-turbo V-6 engine instead of a V-12, and it features a less aggressive exterior design. The 2021 Maserati MC20 is likely aimed at supercars like the Ferrari F8 Tributo, McLaren 720S, and Lamborghini Huracan Evo. The 2021 MC20 is powered by a twin-turbo, 3.0-liter V-6 that’s described as "100% Maserati." However, this mill is actually loosely based on Ferrari’s F154 V-8 engine and features parts from other FCA powerplants. The 2021 MC is Maserati’s fourth production mid-engined vehicle, following the Bora (1971-1978), Merak (1972-1983), and MC12 (2004-2005). Let’s find out more about the 2021 Maserati MC20 in the review below.

2021 Brabham BT62R

2021 Brabham BT62R

You know what’s better than the Brabham BT62? The BT62R because you can drive it on the road

You know how when an automaker adds the letter "R" to the end of a model’s nameplate you feel the urge to yawn because here you have yet another potentially lackluster attempt at a ’sporty’ or, maybe, ’track-focused’ version of said model? Well, with Brabham’s BT62R the whole thing has been turned on its head.

While the BT62 is the track-only, ultra-noisy, not-really-comfy version, the BT62R is the one you can drive on the street. Just about any street, too. Confusing? Maybe, but does it really matter when you consider that, finally, we’re getting a BT62 that’s road legal in more than a couple of countries?

Thanks to the MC20, Maserati Is Finally Relevant Again

Thanks to the MC20, Maserati Is Finally Relevant Again

The Maserati MC20 Comes as a Successor to the MC12 and Mark’s Maserati’s Return to the World of Racing

I would be lying if I told you that I’ve been particularly pleased with Maserati’s lineup over the last decade. Once a company synonymous with performance and luxury as, at least in my eyes, become quite uninteresting. Now, 15 years after the MC12 thrived, Maserati is introducing the mid-engined MC20 – a car that doesn’t only mark Maserati’s return to the world of racing, but also gives the company’s lineup something unique and attractive. I’d even go so far as to say that this is exactly what Maserati needed if it’s going to remain relevant this decade.

You Have to Love Watching Ken Block Hoon The All-Electric Ford Fiesta ERX

Rest assured, this electric, rally-ready Fiesta is just as mean as the ICE one

Ken Block needs no introduction by now. The inventor of Gymkhana has gathered a huge fan base on- and off-line, and for good reason: he’s been sitting behind the wheel in cool rides since forever. Speaking of those, this time around, Mr. Block gets to shakedown the living daylight out of the all-electric Ford Fiesta ERX that he actually raced over the last weekend in FIA’s World Rallycross Project E race series. And as usual, some tire slaying ensued.

The Bugatti Divo Is As Easy to Drive as a Volkswagen Golf

There’s way more to the Bugatti Divo than a blistering price tag

Bugatti was pretty blunt in describing the Divo, claiming the Chiron-based derivative was, in fact, tailored specifically for the corners. And while we might know everything Bugatti wanted us to know about the Divo, nothing compares to the good ol’ driving impressions.

TopGear drove the $5.8-million Bugatti Divo and found some interesting stuff, including the way the Divo handles at low speeds, around the city.

How Much Does a Lamborghini Cost?

How Much Does a Lamborghini Cost?

Too expensive for most of us, that much we can tell you

Lamborghini models are expensive. Let’s get that out of the way. Most people already know that, and just as many are resigned to the reality that not everyone can afford a Lamborghini.

A Huracan EVO RWD, for example, is the cheapest Lamborghini model that’s currently in the market. The price for the rear-wheel-drive supercar starts at $208,000, but that’s just for the base model.

Options come aplenty for a model like this, and the final price could balloon depending on how many options, packages, and/or accessories are thrown into the deal. To give you an idea of how much each Lamborghini costs, we’ve compiled a list detailing each model that’s currently in the market and a couple of special edition Lambos that were released in the past few years.

2021 Czinger 21C

2021 Czinger 21C

Digitally designed, robotically assembled, possibly groundbreaking

Czinger is not a new name in the car realm. Those of you who remember the 2015 Divergent Blade know it was conceived by Divergent Technologies, whose CEO and founder is Kevin Czinger, who is now also leading California’s Czinger Vehicles. Their first hypercar is called the 21C and it should have made a proper physical debut in Geneva, but it wasn’t meant to be. Still, the 21C is an amazing, forward-thinking hypercar and we’re here to get you up to speed with it.

Here's How the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI Made FWD Fun

Here’s How the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI Made FWD Fun

Volkswagen found simple yet effective solutions that make the Golf GTI a hoot to drive

Perhaps equally popular and recognizable as the Golf nameplate is the GTI badge. It has been honoring the Golf moniker since 1976 and during that time, it became synonymous with fun driving as well as daily driving suitability.

Along the years, Volkswagen refined the recipe and it’s safe to say that the 2020 Golf GTI is the most advanced of its kind. VW never went astray from the FWD setup in the Golf GTI, but it had to find ingenious solutions to keep it relevant and engaging.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost Returns With Evolutionary Styling and A New V-12 Engine

The Rolls-Royce Ghost Returns With Evolutionary Styling and A New V-12 Engine

The New Rolls-Royce Ghost Has Some Phantom DNA

While most carmakers keep their vehicles on the market for five to seven years per generation, Rolls-Royce doesn’t redesign its nameplates unless they get close to or even surpass the 10-year mark. The old Phantom survived for an impressive 14 years, while the outgoing Ghost is now in its 11th year in showrooms. Come 2020, and the full-size model was finally redesigned to join the newer Phantom and the Cullinan, the brand’s first-ever SUV. Just like the Phantom, the new-generation Ghost remains familiar on the outside, but it brings a new platform, engine, technology, and a more comfortable interior to the table.

In a way, we can say that the memory of the Lancer Evo is still clean, because Mitsubishi didn’t use the name on a crossover…yet. But with the Eclipse Cross out and about, God knows what might be in store for the Lancer and the Evo nameplate.

Now, if we made you angry, we’re sorry. Here, there’s a 23-minute video of Doug DeMuro dissecting the Lance Evo. It should make you feel better.

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

The Blob Eye WRX STi is still very relevant today

There was a time when carmakers rejoiced at the thought of being able to offer performance sedans to the masses. The likes of Mitsubishi and Subaru spruce to mind almost instantly, although the former has been plagued by the SUV disease and dropped the Lancer Evo altogether.

Subaru, on the other hand, is still selling the Impreza in various declinations - not WRX STi, though, which is sad. None of them, however, will give you the nostalgia like the 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi with Prodrive goodies.

Or better said, the Koenigsegg Gemera is practical

What’s the first thing you look at whenever a new hypercar is presented? Torque? Horsepower? The kind of engine/drivetrain it offers? Maybe what sort of wicked aerodynamic setups it flaunts? All of the above? Regardless of your answer, practicality is the last thing one cares about or expects from such a vehicle. Somehow, Koenigsegg’s Gemera made a selling point out of it.
