A Smaller, Cheaper SSC Tuatara Is Coming to Appease the 5-Percenters
The SSC Tuatara is a mean beast that lugs around a twin-turbo V-8 that’s good for 1,750 horsepower, a 2.5-second sprint to 60 mph, and a top speed in excess of 300 mph. The latest bit has yet to be proven, but in an interview with Top Gear, SSC Head Jerod Shelby, has confirmed that the company has found a driver and a suitable location for its long-awaited top-speed run. This aside, the SSC Tuatara doesn’t come cheap with a price than runs nearly $2 million – something that leaves it available to, well, the top 0.5-percent of the world’s population. Now, we’ve learned that a smaller, more affordable model is coming.
We Insist That You Don’t Check Out This Larte Design Off-Road Tuning Kit for the Aurus Senat
Larte Design plays in the same obnoxious tuning league as Mansory. You can expect the tuner to shell out audacious designs and the worst part is that people will actually buy those and flaunt them on the street. Speaking of audacious, try not to cringe at the sight of Larte’s latest work on Russia’s Aurus Senat.
Top 10 Best Cars for New Drivers
It goes without saying that buying your first car is a big deal. It’s one thing to just go and buy one car that suits your fancy; it’s another thing entirely to buy one that does more than that.
There are a lot of things to consider when buying your first car. Does the car suit your taste? Does it have a spacious interior? Is it fuel efficient? How well does it ride? Is it fast? Is it powerful? While you’re not obligated to answer all these questions, you need to find the ones that you want answers to. That’s going to shape your decision-making process. Of course, the ultimate question still has to be answered: how much does it cost? Get an idea on what you can and can’t buy, and you’re on your way to taking that next big step in your life.
This Chevy C8 Corvette Roadster Is The Limited Edition Vette the World Needs
We don’t know about you, but for us, when the words Chevrolet and roadster are joined together, a mental picture of the Chevy SSR lights up our brains. As wild and daring as the SSR was, that contraption - a retractable hard-top convertible pickup truck - has nothing to do with the C8 Corvette roadster renders you’re about to see.
What Do You Know About this 10-Horsepower Messerschmitt KR200 Bubble Car?
Messerschmitt disappeared in 1968 following a merger and was eventually purchased by Deutsche Aerospace, which is now part of Airbus, but the company remains famous for the fighter planes it build during World War II. But after WWII and following Germany’s defeat, Messerschmitt wasn’t allowed to built aircraft for 10 years. So the German firm switched to microcars following a cooperation with engineer Fritz Fend, who previously built engine-powered invalid carriages. Built from 1955 to 1965 in around 30,000 units, the KR200 is one of the most iconic bubble cars ever made.
Callaway Cars is arguably one of the most recognizable American specialty manufacturer in the business today. It’s been around since 1977, and in the 43 years that it’s been around, the company has been responsible for a lot of builds, programs, and projects, including its main series of projects, all of which are identified with a “C,” followed by a specific project number. The most recent of these projects was the C21 Aerowagen, a coach-built shooting brake version of the Chevrolet Corvette C7 that was launched in 2017.
This introduction is important because Callaway is in the process of building a special program for the all-new Corvette C8. It’s unclear if this project will be identified as the “C22,” but it remains no less significant in part due to the Corvette C8’s status as the first-ever mid-engine Corvette in the nameplate’s long and illustrious history. For now, the program isn’t close to being completed, but that didn’t stop Callaway from previewing a few of the program’s more notable items, including a new generation of the company’s famed “Double-D” exhaust system. There’s more to this program than the exhaust, and, needless to say, we can’t wait for what Callaway has in store for the mighty Corvette C8.
How Does the 2021 Toyota Venza Compare to the Competition?
The Venza nameplate has made a return to Toyota’s stable after a five-year hiatus. The new Venza is a two-row SUV that slots between the RAV4 and the Highlander in the company’s lineup. This SUV is essentially a rebadged Harrier that’s sold in the Japanese market. To make it stand out from the competition and offer a fuel-efficient SUV to the customers, the Venza will be offered as a hybrid-only SUV.
But, is this enough to waive off the competition in the thickly stacked segment where almost every automaker has a presence? Here’s how the Venza stands when pit against the Ford Edge, Chevy Blazer, Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sorento, Honda Passport, and the Nissan Murano.
2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder
The 2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder is the facelifted version of the original model launched in 2016. It’s basically an upgraded variant of the rear-wheel-drive alternative to the standard Huracan, which features an AWD layout. Visual upgrades are in line with the rest of the Huracan lineup, but the RWD stands out with a unique front bumper and rear diffuser. More notably, it’s more powerful than the old model, as it now features the V-10 engine of the old AWD model. The naturally aspirated mill cranks out 602 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. The 2020 Huracan Evo RWD Spyder hits 62 mph from a standing start in 3.5 seconds.
Toyota Debuts The New Sienna and The Resurrected-Venza
I’ve considered hybrids to be the perfect stopgap between internal combustion engine cars and electric vehicles. The majority of the people are still skeptical to switch to pure EVs and hybrid vehicles help you adapt to it very well. Not all automakers have taken hybrid technology very seriously, but Toyota is one company that has diligently worked on it and delivered quality products.
The company launched two vehicles this week. One is the 2021 model of its minivan, the Sienna, and the other one is the resurrected Venza SUV. What makes these models special is that they will be available only with a hybrid powertrain. Will these vehicles succeed in their new-found avatars?

An Electric Dragster Has Finally Broken the 200-MPH Barrier
Electric cars are the future or, at the very least, part of the future, whether we like it or not, so all of us at TopSpeed get properly excited when we hear of an EV that managed to break any sort of speed or acceleration record because, let’s face it, that’s way cooler than hearing about which EV can boast with a 400-mile range.
Now, the talk of the town is Current Technology’s insane 1,950 horsepower electric dragster, the first of its kind to surpass the 200 mph barrier.
