10 Cars With the Best Power Output Per Liter

10 Cars With the Best Power Output Per Liter

There’s no replacement for displacement... or is there?

Back in the day, if you wanted more power, you had to have an engine with a big volumetric capacity. Take, for instance, Malcolm Campbell’s Campbell-Napier-Railton Blue Bird record-breaking car of 1931 that was a 25-foot-long behemoth powered by a 23.9-liter airplane engine developing 1,450 horsepower.

Nowadays, however, with the advent of turbocharging as well as other clever mechanical solutions, we no longer need engines the size of a bedroom to get the oomph we want. Point in case? Each and every car on this list.

Ferrari has been building supercars and sports cars for more than 70 years now and, needless to say, many of them are downright legendary. But not every vehicle with a Ferrari badge is iconic.

10 Fastest Cars To 60 MPH Ranked Fastest to Slowest

10 Fastest Cars To 60 MPH Ranked Fastest to Slowest

These are the 10 quickest production cars from 0 to 60 mph!

Just like top speed, 0 to 60 mph acceleration is one of the key aspects of a performance car. As a result, automakers have been competing to improve and even set records for these figures for decades now. While most supercars were’t capable of hitting 60 mph in less than three seconds 20 years ago, newer examples will do it effortlessly.

And new technology also enabled some sedans and SUVs to hit that magical benchmark in less that three clicks. Compiling a list of the 10 quickest cars to 60 mph is a bit tricky since many of these cars come with claimed manufacturer times that have yet to be tested, but no matter how we twist it, the world’s 10 fastest cars reach the benchmark in 2.6 seconds or less. Here’s our own ranking from quickest to slowest.

The Short and Intriguing History of V-16 and W-16 Engines

The Short and Intriguing History of V-16 and W-16 Engines

Only a handful of cars were powered by 16-cylinder engines, and this is the definitive list

The production automobile started life with relatively small engines, but as luxury cars emerged in the 1920s, carmakers began developing larger V-8 and V-12 engines. Some companies even went as far as to develop massive V-16s.

Although these engines delivered lower vibration, thus increasing comfort inside the cabin, they typically produced as much power as a V-8 or V-12 engine, while being notably more expensive to produce. As a result they were rarely used in automobiles. Let’s have a closer look at the short but intriguing history of V-16 (and W-16 for that matter) cars below.

Ford Mustang Mach 1 History - A Legendary Timeline Greatness

Ford Mustang Mach 1 History - A Legendary Timeline Greatness

The 2021 Mustang Mach 1 is only the fourth model of its kind in 51 years

Originally available in just one trim and a GT Equipment Group that eventually became the familiar GT version, the Ford Mustang quickly evolved into a multi-model pony car. By the late 1960s, Ford was already offering two Shelby models, two Boss versions, and various region-specific variants. With five performance models in showrooms for the 1969 model year, Ford decided to introduce a sixth version: the Mach 1.

The first iteration of the Mach 1 remained in production in various forms until 1978. When the second-generation Mustang was discontinued, the Mach 1 nameplate was phased off for decades and didn’t return until 2003. After a short-lived stint with the fourth-gen ’Stang, the Mach 1 once again disappeared until 2020. Just like the Bullitt and the Boss, the Mach 1 is a unicorn Mustang. With the nameplate revived for the 2021 model year,, it’s the perfect time to have a look at its history and what made this badge famous.

Car modifications have become integral parts of car culture that it’s hard not to go a day without seeing at least one car that’s received modifications from the automotive aftermarket world.

So before you decide to install a cold air intake or strap on lightbars on your car, consider first which modifications are legal and which ones are illegal in your neck of the woods.

These Are The Coolest V-10 Cars Ever Made

These Are The Coolest V-10 Cars Ever Made

V-10 engines aren’t very popular, but they power some of the best cars ever built

While V-8 and V-12 engines have been somewhat popular since the early days of the automobile, the V-10 made its debut in production cars much later. That’s mostly because each cylinder bank works as a straight-five engine, preventing the mill from having the natural balance found in other powerplants. Reducing the vibrations in a V-10 engine requires further development, which also adds additional costs. While the first V-8s and V-12s were developed as early as the 1900s, the first known V-10 appeared in 1936 when Busch-Sulzer created a prototype locomotive. Porsche then introduced a massive 37.4-liter V-10 diesel for the Leopard 1 tank in 1965. In 1983, Tatra launched its own V-10 diesel for the T815 truck. The first production car with a V-10 didn’t arrive until 1992 when Dodge launched the Viper. Since then, a handful of automakers created performance vehicles powered by V-10 mills. Here’s a list of the most iconic cars.
