2021 Lamborghini Huracan STO

This Lamborghini Huracan STO is probably the most extreme Huracan ever built for the road

The 2021 Lamborghini Huracan STO is a track-prepped version of the company’s familiar, entry-level supercar. Derived from Huracan Super Trofeo EVO and Huracan GT3 EVO race cars, the 2021 Huracan STO is the most radical road-legal version of the supercar yet. It packs a V-10 engine with 631 horsepower, a carbon-fiber body, a no-nonsense interior, and an aerodynamic package that makes it insanely quick and nimble on the race track. What sets it apart from the Huracan Performante and how fast it is? Let’s find out in the review below.

2021 BMW 128ti

2021 BMW 128ti

The BMW 128ti slots below the M135i and takes on the VW Golf GTI

The 2021 BMW 128ti is a performance-oriented version of the third-generation (F40) 1 Series. The 2021 128ti slots between the 120i and the M135i xDrive models in terms of equipment and performance. It borrows some styling features from the range-topping M135i xDrive, but its 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is detuned from 302 to 261 horsepower. It’s also a rear-wheel-drive model with no option for an AWD system.

More importantly, the 128ti revives the iconic "ti" badge that BMW first introduced in the 1960s and used most recently in 2004. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.

The 2021 BMW M3 (G80) is the sixth-generation of the company’s high-performance compact sedan. Based on the seventh-generation 3 Series (G20), it debuts many firsts for the nameplate. Design-wise, 2021 M3 stands out thanks to its massive kidney grille, a feature it shares only with the M4 as of 2020. It’s also the first M3 model available in two versions: there’s a base M3 with 473 horsepower and a beefed-up M3 Competition model with 503 horsepower. The two-model lineup is an answer to the Mercedes-AMG C 63, available in standard and S guises. The 2021 M3 is also the first of its kind to feature an all-wheel-drive system. It’s available as an option for the M3 Competition trim. Unlike its competitors, the 2021 M3 retains a manual transmission, offered as standard on the base model.

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.

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?

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.

Inspired by racing, but not necessarily reserved to racers

The T.50 shares many similarities to the old McLaren F1, but every aspect has been improved through the use of new-generation materials and modern technology. Let’s find out more about the T.50, described as "the most driver-centric supercar ever built" in the review below.
