Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT E-Performance PHEV
We already knew that the next generation AMG GT will bring major changes. First, it will only be offered as a coupe - as the Roadster will be replaced by the new SL, and second, following the footsteps of the SL, it will initially be offered in two versions: GT53 and GT63 - both of which have already been caught testing. A more powerful version will also be offered, however, and just like with the SL, this range-topping plug-in hybrid will wear the E-Performance badge.
The Delage D12 Has Record-Breaking Ambitions
Back in 2021, a Porsche 911 GT2 RS equipped with a Manthey performance kit became the fastest road-legal production sports car on the 13-mile Nürburgring-Nordschleife track. With a lap time of 6:43:30, the GT2 RS stole the title from the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series which did the same lap in 6:43:62 just a year before.
Many of you may have never heard about Delage lately, but for sure you will hear a lot about it soon. The company that built the D6 and the D6 in the 1930s is making a comeback, and it plans to do it in style. In an interview with Motor1 Laurent Tapie, French entrepreneur, and the new CEO of Delage, announced that the company plans to beat the street-legal record around Nurburgring with its future supercar, the D12.

The Purosangue has been Ferrari’s spotlight-stealer in recent times. Ferrari has been busy with other projects like the one-off SP48 Unica, but the Purosangue has been the talk of the town. But, that said, we’ve spotted quite a few camouflaged projects of it in recent times.

This is a hardcore version of the SF90 Stradale and is expected to be revealed in 2023. So, what’s the scoop that we have so far?
Watch Bruno Senna Lap The McLaren Artura Around The Miami GP Circuit
It’s been more than a year since the McLaren Artura was announced, but it is only now that the supercar is making its North American debut. In fact, it made its debut in style, with Bruno Senna popping its cherry. Yes, Ayrton Senna’s nephew has taken some hot laps in the supercar around the brand-new Miami GP circuit.
McLaren has hopes that the North American market will become the largest market for the Artura when deliveries begin in July 2022.
Chevy Corvette Hybrid – The First AWD Vette in History
While Ford launched the GT supercar with an outrageous-for-a-Ford price tag, extreme rules for purchase, and very limited availability, GM was busy putting together the new mid-engined C8 Corvette. As a car that has become known as an affordable exotic with the performance credentials to match its appearance, it was only missing one thing: electrification. That’s about to change, however, as Chevy has just confirmed that the Vette Hybrid is on the way, and while that’ll be a first for the Vette nameplate, there’s an even more important first coming with it.

Cheapest Hybrid Cars
Ever wondered why hybrid cars are priced slightly higher than their gas-only siblings? Hybrid cars are more efficient, and depending on your car choice, you may have to visit the gas station less often. You can save a lot of money over the years. In a broader perspective, hybrid powertrains cause lower CO2 emissions, offer more linear accelerations, and sometimes put out more power than their non-hybrid counterparts. Seems like a win-win situation, right? What if we simplify and list out five of the most popular and cheaper hybrid cars which you can buy for less than $30,000? Let’s dive in.

Confirmed: Lamborghini Aventador Successor to Feature V-12 Hybrid Powertrain
2021 was a big year for Lamborghini as it saw sales increase over 2019 “by” six-percent, and over 2020 by roughly 23-percent. Most of the improvement in sales can be attributed to the brand’s understanding of its consumer base and the launch of the Lamborghini Urus which has, quite literally, become a problem. It won’t be long before Lamborghini bids farewell to ICE-only power, and part of that transition involves the next-gen Aventador or its successor as it probably won’t carry the Aventador name. That successor is quite a special vehicle and while we don’t know much about it, it’s been largely assumed that it would be a hybrid of some kind. Now, we’ve received confirmation that it will, in fact, be a hybrid, but there’s a lot more to it than that.
The 2023 Mercedes-AMG SL 63e Steps Out In The Cold
The Mercedes GLC Will Have A Six-Cylinder After All, But Don’t Get Too Excited
As you know by now, the entire Mercedes C-Class lineup will soon be powered by four-cylinder engines, and that even includes the wild AMG C43 and wilder C63. The V-8 engine has, essentially, been replaced with a four-pot and an electric turbo. The full verdict isn’t in as to how well this is going to work out, but the same story will play out for the entire GLC – the SUV equivalent to the C-Class – lineup, or at least that’s what we thought.
