2022 Wiesmann MF 6

2022 Wiesmann MF 6

The neo-retro coupe returns with revised styling and a BMW M5-sourced engine

The 2021 Wiesmann MF 6 is an upcoming sports car built by the German company. A spiritual successor to the GT MF 5, the MF 6 is Wiesmann’s first production model since it went bankrupt in 2014. Reopened in 2016, Wiesmann confirmed a new sports car for 2020. The vehicle is known as Project Gecko and the MF 6 name has yet to be confirmed, but it’s a natural choice given that the new sports car is supposed to be an evolution of previous models. Wiesmann confirmed that the MF 6 will feature a BMW engine, just like its predecessors. A teaser video and sketches posted on the company’s website reveal a familiar design that reminds of the MF 5.

2021 McLaren 620R

2021 McLaren 620R

The quickest and most extreme road-legal Sports Series model

The 2021 McLaren 620R is the range-topping version of the Sports Series, the company’s entry-level lineage of sports cars. Essentially a road-legal version of the 570S GT4, the 2021 620R slots above the 600LT. Design-wise, the 2021 620R is almost identical to the 570S GT4. It also features the same engine, but because it’s not restricted by racing regulations, the V-8 boasts more power.

Rated at 610 horsepower, the 2021 620R is the most powerful Sports Series vehicle ever created. It’s also the quickest, but it lags behind its siblings when it comes to top speed. With production limited to 350 units, the 2021 McLaren 620R costs almost $300,000. Let’s find out more about this supercar in the review below.

2019 Pininfarina Pura Vision Concept

2019 Pininfarina Pura Vision Concept

Pininfarina’s answer to the Ferrari Purosangue

Pininfarina, once Ferrari’s preferred coachbuilder, is now busy establishing itself as a standalone automaker. It put its best foot forward by unveiling the radical Battista hypercar that promises to be one of the fastest four-wheeled things on the planet and now it’s doubling it down by announcing a whole range of models, the first of which will be an SUV. Fear not, however, as the Pura Vision isn’t your average sporty SUV as Pininfarina aims to deliver supercar-level performance under a skin that both resembles a four-door GT and the existing Battista. It sounds like a match made in heaven.

Coming with an outlandishly appointed cabin and a class-bending profile, the Pininfarina Pura Vision could seriously reduce the market share of Lamborghini’s Urus and Ferrari’s upcoming Purosangue. While we’re yet to feast our eyes with the pre-production prototype showcased to prospective customers during a series of VIP events held by Pininfarina in August during the Monterey Car Week, those that have are talking about a sleek and not overly complicated design so typical of Pininfarina, one that’ll only be matched by its impressive performance. At this stage of the game, the Pura Vision might become Pininfarina’s most important product so they have to get it right.

2021 Jaguar F-Type First Edition

2021 Jaguar F-Type First Edition

Special edition F-Type will only be available in first year of production

The arrival of the facelifted 2021 Jaguar F-Type also comes with the launch of the F-Type First Edition. Limited to the facelifted F-Type’s first-year production run, the F-Type First Edition offers a smattering of refinements that includes exclusive features inside and out, including a choice of three paint colors and plenty of premium touch-ups in the cabin. The only real downside is that the 2021 F-Type First Edition could set you back at least $90,000.

2020 Bugatti Chiron Noire Special Edition

2020 Bugatti Chiron Noire Special Edition

These two Bugatti Chiron exclusives will leave you gasping for air

Bugatti has a new pair of special edition models under the “Chiron Noire Exclusive” name. The two models are called the Chiron Noire Sportive and the Chiron Noire Elegance. Both are inspired, partly at least, by the one-off Bugatti La Voiture Noire that Bugatti unveiled earlier this year. Both Chiron Noire Exclusive Special Edition models are dressed in all black and carry a bevy of features that are exclusive to the two models. Bugatti only plans to release 20 units of the Chiron Noire Exclusive Special Edition in these two finishes. Deliveries are expected to start in the second quarter of 2020 with each unit costing $3,305,445.

2021 Jaguar F-Type Coupe(updated)

2021 Jaguar F-Type Coupe(updated)

The F-Type needs some aesthetic love and 2021 is the year it happens.

The Jaguar F-Type is, arguably, one of the best-looking sports cars on the market today and one could even go so far as to say it’s one of the best lookers of the decade. While this might be true, it has also been on the market since 2013, and we all know that it’s due to be replaced in 2020. We’ve finally seen the first prototype of the 2021 Jaguar F-Type being tested, and we have to admit that there’s going to be some serious changes taking place. Expect a similar silhouette with an all-new face and rear end. There’s also a certain rumor about the V-8 engine that you don’t want to miss out on, so be sure to check out our drivetrain section to learn more about that.

Update 12/2/2019: Fresh on the heals of its debut, the Jaguar F-Type Coupe has been leaked on social media. We’ve updated this speculative review with those leaked images and what we know about it so far. Check it out in our special “updates” section below.

2020 Toyota Supra by AC Schnitzer

The Japanese sports car with German DNA gets tricked out by one of the finest tuners in the land

The all-new Toyota Supra A90 is an aftermarket tuner’s dream, and it hasn’t taken long for the world’s best tuners to build programs for the returning sports car icon.

AC Schnitzer’s program for the sports car is as all-encompassing as it gets. There’s a full line of upgrades to the Supra’s exterior, interior, engine, and a lot of mechanical parts in between. AC Schnitzer hasn’t rolled out the full price list for this new program, but you can bet it won’t be cheap.

2020 Subaru BRZ Special Edition

2020 Subaru BRZ Special Edition

Is this BRZ mule a go-faster prototype, a tester for the next-gen’s 2.4-liter drivetrain, or a simple facelift?

Back in June of 2019, we received confirmation that a next-gen Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ were in the works Then, in September, we learned that the new BRZ and 86 twins may take a re-tuned version of the Subaru Ascent’s 2.4-liter Flat-Four as their main source of motivation. Fast forward to the end of October 2019, and here we are looking at a random Subaru BRZ prototype undergoing the rigors of testing on none other than the Nurburgring. This begs the question of what Subaru has under its sleeve. Right away, I’m here to tell you that it’s not the next-gen BRZ, as that’s still at least a couple of years away. Based on the camo, this appears to be a hotter version of the BRZ, one that could be offered as a special edition or maybe even as a new range-topping model to hold us off until the next-gen BRZ arrives. Even better yet, we think this prototype is being pushed around the track by the Ascent’s 2.4-liter flat-four. After all, what better way to test the reception of a sport-tuned engine than to unleash it in a go-faster version of the current model.

Update 11/28/2019:The special edition Subaru BRZ that’s planned to debut sometime in 2020 was spotted testing on the Nurburgring being benchmarked against the Alpine A110 of all things. Check out the new images and learn more in our Spy Shots section below!

2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Concorde

2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Concorde

A 10-piece special edition model dedicated to one of the most unique aircrafts ever built

This is the Aston DBS Superleggera Concorde Edition. It’s limited to just 10 units and it pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the iconic Concorde’s first flight and the centenary of British Airways, one of the Concorde’s two operators. The DBS Superleggera Concorde isn’t your typical special edition Aston Martin, either. The automaker’s personalization division, Q by Aston Martin, was heavily involved in the development of the DBS Superleggera, right down to all the exclusive exterior and interior details that make the DBS Superleggera Concorde a special edition among special edition models. All 10 units of the DBS Superleggera Concorde will be sold through Aston Martin Bristol, which commissioned its creation. Pricing details have yet to be revealed, but if you’re looking to score one of the 10 available units, you’ll need to reach out to the dealership and express your interest. All 10 units will likely sell out as fast as it takes the Concorde to take flight.

2021 Porsche 911 Targa (Updated)

2021 Porsche 911 Targa (Updated)

The same familiar formula is still relevant

If you like the Targa top in your Corvette, you must know that Porsche did it first, in 1967. Now, the 992-generation of the ageless Porsche 911 continues the tradition and the latest Porsche 911 Targa will be introduced as a 2020 model year car and will feature the 444 horsepower 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged flat-six seen on both the Carrera S and the Carrera 4S. Expect it to cost at least $135,000, some $22,000 more expensive than a Carrera S. Blame it on that roll hoop that’s drenched in history.

Once upon a time, there was a road race through Sicily’s narrow, winding roads that awarded those that proved to be unphased by angry locals, that sometimes drew guns on the competitors, and the perilous condition of the tarmac in many areas of the Circuito delle Madonie. That race was the Targa Florio, launched in 1907 by rich entrepreneur Vincenzo Florio, that became a sort of a favorite for Porsche and its drivers, the brand from Stuttgart winning the race 11 times in less than two decades. How is this relevant to a 2020 Porsche? Read on to find out.

Update 11/27/2019: The Porsche 911 Targa was spotted doing some cold weather testing in Sweden. Check out the new images and a bit of new information below.

2020 Lamborghini V12 Vision Gran Turismo

2020 Lamborghini V12 Vision Gran Turismo

This is what Lamborghini can think of when it’s not bound by real-world constraints

Just when you thought it was safe to call the recently unveiled Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo one of the edgiest VGT cars to come out of the video game racing program, a certain Italian automaker comes out and smacks you over the head with its own Vision Gran Turismo. This one comes from Lamborghini, and it’s called the V12 Vision Gran Turismo. For a company that’s known for designing some of the most aerodynamically outrageous cars in the world, the V12 Vision Gran Turismo makes all of those models look like doodles on a sketch pad. It doesn’t hurt that the V12 VGT carries the same powertrain as Lambo’s other recent madness-of-a-creation, the Sian FKP 37. Just like every other Vision Gran Turismo model that has come before, the Lamborghini V12 Vision Gran Turismo is not earmarked for real-world production. It will instead be available in Gran Turismo Sport for the PlayStation 4 in 2020.

2019 Karma SC2 Concept

2019 Karma SC2 Concept

Karma wants the world to know it means business with a sleek and potent electric hypercar concept

Karma is entertaining us with quite the stand at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which is also home for the SC2 Concept. The Karma SC2 previews the startup’s future design direction - those are Karma’s words, by the way - which means we’re not necessarily going to see a road-going car inspired by the prototype. Instead, this is Karma showing us what its design and engineering departments are capable of churning out.

We’re sorry to trash your expectations this early, but there’s more to the SC2 Concept than the probability of it spawning a road-ready car. For example, Karma says that the all-electric powertrain is powerful enough to propel the rig from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 1.9 seconds. Is this a poke at the Tesla Roadster, which “coincidentally” (and theoretically) can dispatch the same interval in 1.9 seconds, too?

2020 Dodge Challenger 50th Anniversary Edition

2020 Dodge Challenger 50th Anniversary Edition

This special edition Challenger has the chance to be a future collectible

The Dodge Challenger is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and Dodge is rolling out a special treat for fans of the muscle car with the Challenger 50th Anniversary Edition. The special edition Challenger is not a traditional stand-alone SE model. Instead, it is a special edition trim package that will be available in seven different colors on four Challenger trim models: the GT RWD, R/T Shaker, R/T Scat Pack Shaker, and R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody. Only 70 units will be built in each color for each trim. That adds up to a total of 1,960 units. The cost of the 50th anniversary trim will vary depending on the Challenger trim. Prices range from $4,995 to $5,995.

2021 Lamborghini Huracan EVO Performante

2021 Lamborghini Huracan EVO Performante

We thought the Evo was the Huracan’s peak, but that might not be the case anymore

After Lamborghini’s chief technical officer Maurizio Reggiani was adamant in suggesting that the Huracan has already matured and reached its peak - “that badge is finished” were his words, by the way, we were expecting rumors about the replacing model. However, a mysterious set of spyshots is bringing us back on the topic of a lighter, more powerful version of the Huracan slated to make a debut in the following months.

We know Lamborghini likes to pull off anniversary editions as well as farewell editions for its cars, but if the recent rumors are true, this could be, in fact, a high-powered Huracan to rule them all, one that would sit above both the Evo and the Performante. In fact, it could be called Huracan Evo Performante, although we’re taking that with a pinch of salt for the time being. That said, did Sant’Agata Bolognese change its mind? Is a Superleggera-style Huracan back in the cards?
