2024 BMW XM Leaked Before You’re Supposed To See It
Take your first look at BMWs radical new X8/XM crossover. Spyshots of the X8 have already been doing the rounds, but these exclusive shots courtesy of wilcoblok give us a close look at what appears to be an almost production-spec vehicle. The lack of heavy camouflage should help us look at how the near-production model has evolved compared to the concept we saw back in November last year.
The Range Rover Sport Legacy - Tracing the Genesis of Performance SUVs
Except for the highly exclusive GMC Syclone and the Lamborghini LM002, performance SUVs weren’t a thing until Land Rover decided to step into the game. In 2004, Land Rover debuted a concept car called Range Stormer at the North American International Auto Show, and the rest is history.
2023 Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II - What You Need to Know
Rolls-Royce has finally updated the eighth-gen Phantom after five long years. The automaker has mentioned that the changes to the updated model are based on inputs from its clients. They “implored Rolls-Royce not to make any major changes to an already iconic motor car”. This is a clear indication that the 2023 Phantom doesn’t come with a whole lot of changes. In fact, Rolls-Royce doesn’t even call it a facelift. It has been labeled as a ‘new expression’.
Dyno-testing a 2010 Ford Crown Victoria Interceptor Proves You Could Have Outran The Cops With Ease!
The Ford Crown Victoria is one of the most memorable American cars from the 1990s, but not for the right reasons. While the car wasn’t quick or handled particularly well, it was the car of choice for Police and Highway Patrol services. If you are someone who loves stepping on it, you’ve probably dreaded the image of one of these in your rearview mirror. However, a recent dyno tests done by ’Late Model Restorations’, reveal that a 2010 Crown Vic Interceptor is no reason to get your panties in a twist.
This Is How The Second-Gen Range Rover Sport Stacks Up Against Its New, Third-Gen Avatar

The Shelby GT500-H Is a 900-Horsepower Special You Can Rent by the Day
Shelby and Hertz. That’s a very bizarre collaboration, if you think of it. These two companies have teamed up and come up with two special vehicles – the Mustang Shelby GT500-H and the Mustang Shelby GT-H. If this tag-team raised your eyebrows, well, there’s some more surprising news. This isn’t the first time they’ve collaborated to create special rental cars. Their friendship dates back to 1966 when Shelby and Hertz created the GT350-H and the latter offered it to the public via a special program called ‘Rent-a-Racer’. That’s some history lesson for the day, huh?
2023 Cadillac Escalade-V - What You Need to Know
What you’re looking at is not just the most powerful Escalade, but the most powerful Cadillac and the most powerful Full-Size SUV ever. Yes, the 6.2 small block under the hood has been worked on to offer some serious power upgrades.

2022 Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 Expedition By Khann International
The Land Cruiser is Toyota’s longest-selling car. It was launched in 1951, and, at the end of 2019, the production had surpassed 10 million units. It is true that in the States, the model does not enjoy the same success as it does in other markets. The fact that the new LC300 generation didn’t make it Stateside says it all. But, everywhere else in the world, the Land Cruiser is actively used and enjoys great success.
Inspired by this success, Khann International came up with a very cool Expedition package that will literally take your Land Cruiser everywhere.

Tug-of-War: Does The AMG G63 Come Out On Top, Or Does It Succumb To The BMW X7 And iX?
The ‘Carwow’ team, spearheaded by Mat Watson, staged a tug-of-war between three SUVs that belong to different segments. One is a new EV, the other, its sibling, a luxurious family SUV, and the final one, an iconic off-roader. We are talking about the BMW iX, the BMW X7, and the Mercedes-AMG G63. Since this is a tug-of-war, you’d expect the G63 to be the winner, since it comes with a lot of tech and equipment that has to do with traction and stability. But, is that really the case?

Here’s Doug DeMuro’s Take On What Could Likely Be The Very Last Audi S8
Doug DeMuro featured the refreshed Audi S8 in his latest video. As with any of his reviews, he dwells deeper than your typical run-of-the-mill review, going over the quirks and features of the latest S8. The A8/S8 lineup has always been the underdog and the least popular of the flagship German limousines, with its chief rivals being the Mercedes Benz S Class and the BMW 7 Series. It has often been criticized for looking too much like a scaled-up Audi A4 or A6.
Having said that, there is still a lot to like about the S8, especially when you consider that this latest model is about $15k cheaper than the outgoing model. The S8 is also ideal if you prefer to fly under the radar and the understated styling sure does come into play here. Find out why Doug thinks this might very well be the very last Audi S8 in his video below.
Once A Taxi Driver, Now A Crypto Billionaire - Here’s What The Man Drives Today
MoVlogs, a.k.a Mohamed Beiraghdary, the popular YouTuber from Dubai, recently met up with Crypto mogul, Chris Jaszczynski. Now, Mo not only got to check out Chris’ cars but also got to see his fancy house, a part of his NFT collection, and the office from where he runs his Crypto empire.
The duplex apartment of course is located right in the heart of downtown Dubai sitting next to the Sheikh Zayed Road and the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. This home is good enough to be featured on MTV Cribs. No kidding.
Hooked And Booked: Watch An Old-School Demon Destroy A Modern Hellcat
We’ve previously featured several Old-school vs Modern battles from the Cars And Zebras’ YouTube channel, and the video we’re featuring today sees another awesome pairing between a 1972 Dodge Dart Demon 340 and a modern-day Challenger Hellcat. The two cars took each other in the Pure Stock Class at the Mid-Michigan Motorplex.
2022 Infiniti QX80
Being a full-size SUV underpinning the Armada’s bones, the QX80 is a full-fledged luxury offering from Infiniti. It features a powerful V-8, fully independent suspension, a plush interior, and even loads of convenience features to make up for its dated architecture. We reviewed the Lexus GX earlier, and it confirmed that the body-on-frame chassis-based SUVs aren’t that bad. Same with the QX80, which is heavily based on Nissan’s Armada, while being about $20,000 more expensive. Surely there are a lot of differences, but Infiniti is trying to squeeze out a little more every year before a comprehensive revamp. But, unlike the GX, the QX80 is not known best for reliability. It is not as bad as a Mercedes-Benz would be, but it has faced recalls in its previous iterations. So, who do you think will buy the QX80? Well, people who don’t have problems with higher fuel expenses, love the raw sound of a V-8, love to travel around with family, and want good luxury treatment. But, if you pay $71,000, you want all of these factors covered, including a modern cabin design and a better handling chassis, right? The Jeep Wagoneer, the Cadillac Escalade, and the Genesis GV80 are all modern seven/eight seaters with ample tech and a modern-looking cabin. So, what should you do? Before making any judgments, read our full review.
The 2023 BMW X7 Is The Lady Gaga Of The Automotive World
At this year’s New York Auto Show, BMW introduced its most anticipated luxury SUV - the X7 - which received a mid-cycle makeover. The 2023 model year comes with all the necessary changes to make it look modern for at least the next five years. Available in three models: the xDrive40i, the M60i, and the upcoming Alpina XB7, the entire X7 range is now powered by a mild-hybrid powertrain. The exterior design is not being taken seriously in the automotive world, but whether like it or not, it is the most aggressive-looking X7 to date. All the models now feature adaptive air suspension and an all-wheel-drive system. The interior is refreshed completely. You now get a new dashboard design with two curved screens which are reminiscent of the all-electric iX. As a whole package, the 2023 BMW X7 looks promising. It will compete with the Jeep Wagoneer and the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class.
Blast From The Past: This 1992 Clarkson Review Of The Viper Is Pure Bliss
As many of you may know, Clarkson hasn’t been the kindest when it comes to American cars. Having said that, there are exceptions. Cars like the Chevy Corvette Z06, and more recently, the Ford GT, have got him excited. The first-gen Dodge Viper sure as hell made the cut in his books. This 1992 review of Viper is classic Clarkson at his very best.
Tesla Model S - Twitter Edition??
With Elon Musk’s $44 billion take over of Twitter, I wonder what’s in store next for the likes of Tesla. Is a limited-run Twitter Edition Tesla Model S a possibility? Well, digital artist musartwork has rendered a Model S clad in Twitter blue sitting low on white Rotiform rims. Will such a car have Twitter integrated into the Model S’ infotainment system or a dedicated Tweet button on the Yoke? I don’t know that, this is pure speculation. But never say never. This is Elon Musk we’re talking about here. The sky is pretty much the limit.
2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Pro
Ford launched theF-150 Lightning EV last week and it mostly drew positive responses. The talking point was the sub-$40,000 price for the commercial variant, which would result in being cheaper than the standard F-150 after factoring in the federal tax credits and state incentives. The automaker had not revealed the specs for it then, but we do have them.
The company has coined this commercial trim as the F-150 Lightning Pro. As a sub-$40,000 EV, it looks alright on paper. But, look at it as a work truck – which it is – and you will be disappointed.
