2021 Nissan GT-R Nismo Special Edition (Japan Only)
The current Nissan GT-R is one of the oldest cars on sale in the US, but Nissan doesn’t seem to care. In fact, the Japanese carmaker has taken the wraps off a Special Edition version dedicated exclusively to Japan. We also know that a new-generation GT-R is under development, so is this the swan song we’ve all been waiting for?
This 2006 Lamborghini Murciélago Is Here To Remind You That Sometimes Older Is Better
Lamborghini introduced the Murciélago back in 2001 as a successor to the Diablo. The Murciélago was in production for almost a decade. It was the first new car after 11 years and also happened to be the first under its new parent, Volkswagen. The Italian car was also the new flagship V-12 and worthy to be the face of the company. The car sold in decent numbers – 4,099 examples to be exact – and is still a hit with enthusiasts.
If you are someone who was craving to own one, here’s your chance to own a 2006 model Murciélago with 14,000 miles on the odo, courtesy of the Bring-a-Trailer auction.
Genesis Could Soon Dip Its Toes Into The Performance Pool
Hyundai’s luxury brand – Genesis – is not slowing down. In addition to the SUV models that recently went on sale, the brand is also about to debut their new executive sedan – the G90. With what is shaping to be an almost full Genesis lineup, the only type of car that is yet to make an appearance is a sports coupe. However, there are indications that this might change very soon, as Genesis is giving us subtle hints and the writing is starting to appear on the wall.

10 Things a BMW M Hypercar Needs to Corner the Market
One of the best ways to showcase your technical expertise and convince buyers to buy your cars is to build a hypercar. Mercedes-AMG did it, Aston Martin too. Heck, Volkswagen AG has the best of them all - the Bugatti Veyron and the Chiron. I can only imagine that somewhere in BMW headquarters in Munchen, the board of directors and investors sat together and discussed the hypercar idea.
After all, back in 2017, when Mercedes-AMG showcased the F1 inspired Project One, BMW M boss Dirk Hacker said:
“We would like to do a standalone car, and we could do it – but today there is no requirement from the market to do it. As a company, we are more focused on future mobility than digitization than building a hypercar, to be honest, but if we came to the decision to do a super sports car, then we could do that.”
Apparently, the market still isn’t favorable for the development of the BMW hypercar, but that does not stop us from the brainstorming of what that proposed hypercar could be. I am giving you ten different things BMW hypercar needs to succeed.
This Tastefully-Customized Audi RS6 Avant Shows You Why Wagons Shouldn’t Be Taken For Granted
The Audi RS6 Avant is a mighty fast wagon and we can’t get over it. It strikes the perfect balance of an SUV and a sedan. As practical and spacious as an SUV and comes with sedan-like driving dynamics. The RS6 Avant also happens to be a hot favorite with the tuners. While these renditions are generally pretty good, you have to customize it based on the stuff offered by that one particular tuner only.
However, here’s one example of a heavily customized RS6 Avant that comes with parts and accessories from various equipment manufacturers and we love it to bits. Nice, huh?
This 1998 Subaru Imprezza 22B STi Is As Pristine As It Is Rare
Auction sites like bringatrailer.com are the perfect places to look at if you are looking for unusual or rare vehicles. That is exactly the case with this 1998 Subaru Impreza 22B STI, which has 40,000 km (24,855 miles) on the clock. Japanese sports cars from the 1990s are becoming increasingly sought-after, especially those that were never sold in the US and have to be 25 years old. The Skyline R34 GTR and Supra A80 Turbo are already six-figure cars. The 22B STI is right up there with them, and for good reason.
Porsche Spent 3,100 Miles At Full Throttle Trying to Make The New 911 GT3 Fail
Today’s sports cars and race cars are a lot more reliable than those of the previous decade. In part, this is due to advances in technology and assembly techniques, but carmakers are also more poised on torturing their cars before they finally release them on the market. Case in point: Porsche and the grueling reliability tests that the new 911 GT3 had to endure.
This 2006 Ferrari F430 Is the Queen of Naturally Aspirated Thrills
The Ferrari F430 was unveiled at the 2004 Paris Motor Show as a successor to the Ferrari 360. It came with a whole lot of changes compared to its predecessor, especially in the aerodynamic efficiency department. The F430 now generated a greater downforce, thus instilling more confidence at higher speeds. The supercar was in production for about five years from 2004 to 2009 wherein Ferrari make around 15,000 examples of it. Not exactly a rare breed, but the F430 came with a naturally aspirated V-8 and a lot of heritage-inspired elements that make it a looker even to this day.
A 2006 example finished in the Rosso Corsa red shade with 20,000 miles on the odo has revisited the Bring-a-Trailer auction and here’s your chance to grab the beauty.
This Shootout Between the BMW M4 and Porsche Cayman GT4 is Epic
The GMC Hummer SUV Sacrifices Range And Power for Cargo Room
Almost a year after GMC reincarnated the Hummer moniker in the form of an electric supertruck, the company has now come up with an SUV based on it. Both the products are priced the same except for the top trim, so one would naturally assume them to have identical specs and features.
While the off-road tech and most of the other things are shared, the SUV comes with lower power figures and range. It took people by surprise, but GMC has now clarified that the range and horsepower had to be sacrificed to offer decent cargo room.
2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 - Driven
The Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 is based on the standard Mercedes GLS SUV. It costs twice as much as the GLS but is a lot more premium and plusher. The Maybach-affiliation to the SUV puts it right at the top with the likes of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan and the Bentley Bentayga. It isn’t as expensive as the British brands, but comes with enough tech and luxuriousness to keep you happy if you don’t want to spend a lot of money. It comes with a V-8 engine under the hood to help it propel to 60 mph in less than four seconds. The looks, however, isn’t the GLS600’s strong suit.
While it seems a good package overall, will a Bentayga or a Cullinan customer consider the GLS600? Or will a standard GLS customer upgrade to it, for that matter?
Does The BMW X6M Stand A Chance Against The Lamborghini Urus?
The Lamborghini Urus is Lamborghini’s first SUV and it has broken the sales records for the company. The Urus is practical and can be used as a daily driver, unlike the other bulls in the Italian automaker’s portfolio. But that doesn’t mean it is compromised when it comes to performance. The Urus boasts of specs that make it one of the quickest and fastest production SUVs.
The folks at Carwow, however, decided to pit the Urus against the BMW X6M. The latter is an incredible performer and made the Urus sweat. But, was the German able to trump the Urus, or did the latter prevail?
2021 MG Cyberster Concept - A 500-Mile Sporty EV
Nowadays, due to the economic boom in some countries, as well as the popularization of electric vehicles, we see a lot of start-up manufacturers. What we also see are old names coming back from retirement. MG is one such name. After nearly 40 years of sitting on the side bench, the MG name is back. Sadly, their current model line-up consists of bland affordable crossovers and SUVs. However, the marque might be looking to regain its former glory by introducing a bonkers new model in the form of the MG Cyberster, which will debut at the Shanghai Auto Show later this month.
