2020 Jeep Wrangler Protest Edition By Chelsea Truck Company

2020 Jeep Wrangler Protest Edition By Chelsea Truck Company

It comes with changes on the outside and inside, but nothing is different under the hood

Chelsea Truck Company has returned with another Jeep Wrangler rendition called the Protest Edition. Although the name could be considered slightly controversial, the changes made to the SUV are pretty neat. Nothing under the hood has been changed and it is stock, which means all the changes are cosmetic only. This Wrangler is a right-hand-drive model and is brand-new, unlike some of the examples from Chelsea lately that have had previous owners.

2020 Ferrari Monza SP1 by Novitec

Novitec’s tuning program for the Monza SP1 will blow your mind!

It’s properly powerful as all speedsters should be, but there really is no such thing as too much power, is there? German tuning firm Novitec swears by that motto, and the Monza SP1 benefits from it. What kind of aftermarket program did Novitec create for the fanciful Monza SP1? Let’s find out.

2021 BMW 4 Series Track Review: Sharper Than Ever

2021 BMW 4 Series Track Review: Sharper Than Ever

Say what you will about the bucktooth grille; the new BMW 4 Series remains a class act of dynamic balance

The first-generation 4 Series still looks good to this day. It’s even better to drive, thanks in particular to the 50:50 weight distribution between the two axles and BMW’s affinity for a driver-centric experience - and by that, I don’t mean just the fact that the cockpit points every button, knob, or screen at whoever is sitting behind the wheel.

That genuine appetite for spirited driving is still present in the new 2021 BMW 4 Series, albeit wrapped up in a polarizing package. What I’m really trying to say is that this book should under no circumstances be judged by its cover. That would be a mistake.

2022 GMC Hummer EV - Highlights and Photo Gallery

2022 GMC Hummer EV - Highlights and Photo Gallery

The long-awaited GMC Hummer EV has finally made it’s debut, and it comes to the party with a lot of noteworthy features and some pretty impressive performance. According to GMC, the new Hummer EV will be power by (and as expected) GM’s new Ultium batteries and the new Ultium Drive electronic motors. The Hummer will feature a total of three electric motors that, according to GMC, will deliver and impressive 1,000 horsepower and a “GM-estimated 11,500 pound-feet of torque.” It all reality, it’ll probably put close to 900 pound-feet to the ground, but we’ll leave that discussion for another time. GMC has offered up some pricing and trim information with the entry-level model commanding $79,995, but it comes with just two electric motors. It’ll be coined the “EV2” and will launch in spring of 2024. It will be preceded by the EV2x in 2023 (the lowest model that can do the CrabWalk) and the Hummer EV3X, which will be available in Fall of 2020 with a $99,995 price tag.

Check out the highlights and gallery below to learn more about the Hummer EV and see just what it looks like!

BMW’s new cosmetic package for the X2 is a welcome sight for the crossover

This is the BMW X2 M Mesh Edition, a package-laden special edition model that adds more visual character to a crossover that, quite frankly, needs all the help it can get.

The limited-edition Harley-Davidson Sierra knocks Hennessey’s door for a 700-horsepower upgrade

Earlier this year, Tuscany collaborated with Harley-Davidson to roll out a special edition GMC Sierra that was limited to just 250 examples.

But, how do you combine the finesse of a Harley-Davidson edition truck and the performance of a Hennessey product? Well, you get them together!

An individual purchased the Harley-Davidson Sierra and took it to Hennessey for a performance upgrade. As the team says in the video, is this the Harley for a rainy day?

You won’t believe how powerful the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door 63 S 4Matic has become

Mercedes-AMG’s GT family is a lineup of filthy performance machines, none more imposing than the 730-horsepower GT Black Series. But before the GT Black Series arrived, the 639-horsepower AMG GT 4-Door 63 S 4MATIC+ held court as the most powerful member of the AMG GT family.

Just because that’s the case now, though, that doesn’t mean there’s no room for the four-door powerhouse to reclaim that throne with some help from the aftermarket world. Enter Posaidon.

2021 Audi TT RS 40 Years of Quattro

New special edition TT RS celebrates Audi’s greatest innovation

Audi is famous for a lot of innovations in the history of the auto industry, but none have been as impactful to the automaker as the quattro all-wheel-drive system. Introduced at the 1980 Geneva Motor Show, the quattro all-wheel-drive system has become a foundational piece of all of Audi’s road-going performance cars.

It’s only right that with the quattro system celebrating its 40th anniversary, Audi is launching a special edition TT RS to commemorate the occasion. The special edition model is called the 40 Years of quattro, as fitting a name as any SE model Audi has released in recent memory.
