2021 Brabus 800 - The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Receives The Brabus Treatment
Earlier this month, Brabus revealed its latest creation based on the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S coupé – the Brabus 800. The German tuner has given it a typical Brabus treatment. It comes with a black exterior, big wheels, oodles of carbon fiber elements and components, and of course, a power boost.
Ducati’s Troy Bayliss Tribute Panigale V2 Is All The Ducati You’ll Ever Need
Troy Bayliss’s success in the World Superbike Championship has been commemorated with this limited edition Panigale V2. Featuring special Öhlins suspension and a bespoke paint job, it’s lighter than a standard Panigale V2 and, remarkably, makes more power from its 955cc engine than the race 996R he won his first championship on back in 2001! It costs $4,500 more than a standard Panigale V2.
KTM RC 8C Sold Out in 5 Minutes
Last week, we gave you news of the new track-only KTM RC 8C limited-edition bike that was due to go on sale. With only 100 examples of the Moto2-inspired machine on offer, it was likely that you would have to be quick off the mark to get your hands on one. We didn’t realise how quick you would have to be, however.
2021 Mercedes-Benz Posaidon S 63 RS 830+
The Mercedes-AMG S63 is no slouch with 612 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, but what if that’s not enough? Well, according to famed tuner Posaidon, it’s not, and that’s why we’re looking at this tuned version of the S63 today. The same 4.0-liter V-8 lives under the hood, but it now features revised turbos with upgraded ball bearings, new air induction, and a revised exhaust system with new downpipes and sports catalytic converters. In the end, the Posaidon S 63 RS 830+ is good for a whopping 880 horsepower and 885 pound-feet of torque. That kind of power enables this S63 to hit 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 217 mph.
However, that’s not where the story ends. Posaidon has another upgrade in the works that will raise the final output to as much as 940 horsepower and 944 pound-feet of torque. Unfortunately, Posaidon hasn’t revealed straight-line performance figures for this upgrade, but it seems safe to speculate that 60 mph will come in around three-seconds flat. On that note, both of the upgrades we’ve discussed so far include physical upgrades, so if you’re not interested in that Posaidon can give you as much as 707 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque via simple recalibration of the car’s computer system. Rounding off the whole deal is an electronic lowering module for the AIRMATIC air suspension that will give the S63 a sportier right and more dynamic handling.
Dallara Stradale EXP - The Track-Only Version Of The Standard Stradale Comes With Performance And Aero Upgrades
Dallara made a very strong impact with the Stradale. While it managed to tag itself as a street-legal car, the Stradale’s latest iteration, the Stradale EXP, has jumped the fence and entered into the track-only territory. It comes with a larger wing at the rear, a center-mounted exhaust system, and an aggressive rear diffuser. The roofless car will also have a top speed of 180 mph and can generate up to 2,755 pounds of downforce!
The New Mercedes SL’s Interior Is Clearly Inspired by Jar Jar Binks
Mercedes is slowly “undressing” the next-generation SL and by now we have a pretty good idea of how it would look when it finally comes out. We also know that it’s the first SL, developed by AMG, alongside their AMG GT model, so it will be, by far, the sportiest interpretation of the model yet. Something else we recently found out about the German gran tourer is how the interior looks and, it appears, the interior designers, although they’ve done a great job, may have watched a bit too much Star Wars.
This Tesla Model S Plaid Roars And Grunts Like A Dodge Hellcat!
Switching to EVs isn’t just the next step into the future. It’s a friggin’ paradigm shift. One of the things that is putting off a lot of people is how silent EVs are. If you’ve been driving an internal combustion-engined car for decades, EVs will disappoint you in the aural department. While many governments have mandated that EVs come with external speakers to notify pedestrians about the EV approaching them, Tesla has taken this to the next level.
Tesla allows you to use any soundtrack for the external speakers, and YouTuber Brooks Weisblat from Drag Times showcases the same on his Tesla Model S Plaid. In his latest video, he has enabled the Dodge Hellcat’s sound on his Plaid and it is weirdly incomprehensible to us.

Everything You Need to Know About the 2023 R36 Nissan GT-R
The upcoming GT-R has to be one of the most anticipated super sports cars in recent times. Nissan has been working on a complete model redesign for its flagship sports car for a while now.

The gimmick here is that it’s a car powered by Solar energy, and it’s said to be coming to Europe next year. The solar car can cover over 440 miles on a single charge thanks to solar modules that charge up the battery as you drive.
2021 Hopium Machina - Redefining What We Think About Hydrogen Power
French automaker, Hopium, has made its very first hydrogen-electric prototype. It has also begun accepting orders. Because of its potential to store energy in a transportable form, hydrogen is shaping up to be a hot area in the renewable energy game. It will, however, be a difficult proposition, since there were only 553 hydrogen-filling outlets throughout the globe at the end of 2020. In other words, hydrogen isn’t exactly readily available just yet.
We’re Not Sure Whether to Love or Hate This Galaxy Widebody Kit for the McLaren 720S
Modifying the appearance of a supercar is a delicate procedure, which is why few studios engage in such endeavors. Usually, a lot of work goes into developing a supercar. This includes the body, which has to be both aesthetically pleasing and functional. ZACOE design is a studio that has a very meticulous approach when it comes to enhancing the aesthetics of any car and the Galaxy body kit designed for the McLaren 720S is a testimony to that.
