Ford Mustang GT and Mach 1 to lose 10 horsepower for 2022
Politicians around the world are doubling down on their commitment to reducing carbon dioxide emissions. The United States is no exception, and this trend will definitely continue until we’ve achieved carbon neutrality or zero emissions. As the world heads toward this eco-conscious future, high-performance sports cars and supercars with gas-guzzling internal combustion engines (ICE) could soon be a relic of the past. The effect of these ever-stricter emission standards has led Ford to make performance changes to the Mustang GT and Mach 1.
RUF Made A 911 EV Long Before Porsche And Everyone Forgot About It
Porsche is a brand mostly known for the 911 – a car everyone seems to have the habit of trying to reimagine these days. RUF has been quite successful at doing that and, even before Porsche started dabbling with the idea of a hybrid/electric 911, RUF went on to make their own – the eRUF Model A.
The Ford Mustang GT (With A Manual) Is The Most Patriotic Car You Can Buy Right Now
2022 Lexus LC Black Inspiration
Lexus is not at its first "Inspiration" special edition. In fact, it first launched a concept car called LC500 Inspiration Concept back in 2018, and the production version arrived just one year later.
Now, its’ time for a new "Inspiration" model, but this time is the "Black Inspiration." It will be offered for both the full hybrid electric LC 500h and the V8-powered LC 500 and will go on sale in the UK on November 1st.
Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Is Damn Impressive on the Nürburgring
It is no secret that a new 718 Cayman GT4 is being thoroughly tested before its November debut. It’s the top-tier RS variant that has been caught numerous times by spy photographers, and now, Porsche has announced that it is 24 seconds faster than the standard GT4 around the 12.9-mile Nürburgring circuit.
A tuned Honda Civic Type R takes on a Dodge Challenger Widebody Scat Pack
A highly tuned Civic Type R takes on the mighty Challenger Scat Pack in a couple of ¼ mile drag races. Sam, who is based in Toronto, is especially excited for the Challenger because its owner drove up all the way from Florida. The Challenger Scat Pack went up against an equally interesting Civic Type R that is anything but stock. Let’s have a look at the performance numbers, shall we?
2023 Chevy Corvette Z06: Topless Thrills Up to 8,600 RPM?
At this point, there’s hardly anyone who doesn’t know about the C8 Corvette. The first production, mid-engine Corvette finally came to us in 2019 and quickly became the world’s hottest sports car. Moreover, that was only the base version, and now, we finally get a glimpse at the first high-performance version – the Z06. More importantly, we heard the engine, which sounded like no other Corvette that was ever made.
Drag Race: Kia Stinger GT Vs Volkswagen Arteon R Shooting Brake
It’s another drag race from our UK colleagues from Carwow and this time, the Kia Stinger GT goes up against the Volkswagen Arteon R Shooting Brake. Although both cars compete in the same segment, they are propelled by very different drivetrains. Will more power and torque prevail over less weight, all-wheel drive, and a DSG gearbox?
The Audi R8 Bloodline Carries On - Maybe Even As An EV
With a few exceptions, Audi is a brand that makes luxury cars that, for the most part, feature a rather unremarkable design. While that changed in the last few years, one model that has always been exciting is the Audi R8. Since its debut, in 2006, the mid-engine model hasn’t experienced any radical changes. However a few months ago, Hildegard Wortmann – Audi’s global chief of sales and marketing – stated that the Audi R8 “is an icon of the past, not necessarily the future”. This points to the R8 nearing the end of its lifespan in order to make room for something new.
This 1979 Custom Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" Is The Culmination of 1970s Excess
The first automobile was invented in 1886 and since then many great cars have emerged. But even nearly 140 years after the automobile’s invention, there are very few cars that have a cult following as zealous as that of the Porsche 911. This is especially true for the air-cooled models, which are all-time classics. If we combine the significance of an air-cooled 911 with the cocaine-snorting excess of the 1970s, we can see how a one-off 1979, guards red, modified Porsche 911 Turbo can be listed for $599,000 by a Florida dealership.
Watch The Audi RS5 And The Nissan GT-R Get Their Asses Whooped By A BMW M4 Competition!
Thomas and James from ‘Throttle House’ organized an all-wheel-drive drag race that had some big names racing against each other. The contenders included an Audi RS5, a BMW M4 xDrive, and a Nissan GT-R. On paper, the GT-R makes the most power, but will that translate to a clean sweep over its German counterparts?

Is This 2JZ-Swapped Dodge Charger The Ultimate Act Of Sacrilege?
We are all familiar with the tuning potential of the 2JZ engine, which makes it one of the more popular engine swaps. That said, there are certain boundaries one should not be crossing. This is exactly what Mike Finnegan, from Finnegan’s Garage YouTube channel, did, as he took the rustiest 1968 Dodge Charger and put a 2JZ GTE engine in it. While it’s up for debate whether that’s worse than putting an LS into it (at least it’s a V-8) some MOPAR fans are sure to blow a fuse or two over Finnegan’s build.
Meet Kratos - A 3,300 Hp Dodge Viper And Current Roll Race Champion
“That Racing Channel” continues to supply us – the audience – with great automotive content, showcasing some of the most epic builds in the world. We’ve made it clear that we love Dodge Vipers and apparently, so do the people at “Nth Moto”, who are also the creators of “the Juggernaut” – a 3,200 horsepower Dodge Viper GTS. Now, they’ve come up with an even crazier Viper, which also happens to be the roll race champion. - meet “Kratos”.
Cadillac XP-840 Eldorado Fastback Was Way Ahead Of Its Time
When you think of American luxury cars, you probably think of Cadillac. Since its inception, in 1902, by founders William Murphy, Lemuel Bowen, and Henry M. Leland, the brand has been synonymous with lavishing luxury and style. Moreover, on a few occasions, Cadillac designers played with the idea of radical designs and gigantic (even by American standards) engines. Thus cars like the XP-840 Eldorado Fastback spawned.
We Just Caught the Volkswagen ID.5 GTX Making Short Work of the Nurburgring
Volkswagen was supposed to debut the ID.5 GTX at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show in Munich, but canceled it at the last minute. We saw a camouflaged version ahead of the show which didn’t hide much of the styling cues, but it was still with some skin. Now, the coupe-version of the ID.4 was recently spotted stretching its legs at the Nürburgring without nearly any camouflage this time.
Watch the Venom 775 destroy the Mustang GT500 in a 1/4 mile showdown
In today’s ¼ mile showdown, we have a Hennessey F-150 truck, taking on a stock Mustang GT500 at the Pennzoil proving ground test track, down in Sealy, Texas. This is a performance spec battle with two vehicles from two very different ends of the Ford line-up. They both pack similar power, although it comes as no surprise that the truck weighs more. Let’s look at the numbers first, shall we?
Spyros Panopoulos Chaos Is The First Greek Hypercar And It Will Not Be An EV
Nowadays, there are plenty of startup companies cooking up an EV hypercar. Thanks to the electrical revolution, the hypercar industry has become like the watch industry – come up with a provocative design and then outsource the electric powertrain from somewhere else. However, internal combustion engine hypercars are still alive and it seems the next big thing isn’t coming from Bugatti, Pagani, or Koenigsegg, but….from Greece.
This Is What Happens When The BMW M3 Competition and The Audi RS5 Sportback Take On A 2011 Mercedes-AMG C63 Black Series
The ‘Carwow’ team brought in three hot German cars to the drag strip for a series of drag and rolling races. The contenders this time were the Audi RS5 Sportback, the BMW M3 Competition, and the Mercedes-AMG C63 Black Series. They all have different characteristics, and that is what makes the races unpredictable? Which car do you think is going to win?
Porsche’s 3D-Printed Seats Are Now Available, But There Are Some Stipulations
Porshe has been obsessed with innovation, or needlessly reinventing the wheel, depending on how you look at it for decades. From stubbornly making the engine work in the back of the car to making an electric sedan that weighs well over two tons handle like a dream. As a result of this meticulousness, Porsche produces some of the greatest sports cars in the world. Building off this, the German sports car manufacturer is back at it again with their 3D-printed bucket seats.
Someone Is Building A Real-Life CyberPunk 2077 Quadra V-Tech
Cyberpunk 2077 came out in December 2020 and quickly got a lot of flak for its numerous bugs and broken promises. Be it as it may, the game offered a very unique perspective on what cars would look like in the dystopian future. But for some, playing the game isn’t enough, which is exactly what we see on the YouTube channel Burning Wrenches, where the host has an affinity for fabricating stuff. One of its creations is a real-life replica of the Quadra V-Tech, featured in the game.
The 2023 BMW M2 Competition Was Going Hard On the Nurburgring
The new BMW M2 has been spotted testing at the Nürburgring. It has been spotted back previously as well, but this time it’s in the Competition-spec. BMW is planning to revamp the new M2 to a large extent and it won’t just be a baby M3 now. Will it be able to live up to the hype, or are we in for a disappointing surprise when the car comes out?
Future McLaren Super Cars Will Have Some Provocative Names
Cars are one of the human inventions that most captivated man’s imagination. This is especially true for supercars, which is why many people compare their seductive curves to those of a beautiful woman. Given that supercars (and by extension cars) can be viewed as living beings, as opposed to a means of transport, it’s only fair that they have the appropriate names.
Since McLaren returned to making road cars, their names seemed like a bit of an afterthought. The main offender was the MP4-12C, which according to some journalists sounded like it belonged to a fax machine. But all that is about to change, as McLaren recently filed trademarks for three non-numeric names.
