You Can Now Fit A Manual Aftermarket Gearbox To Your Audi R8

You Can Now Fit A Manual Aftermarket Gearbox To Your Audi R8

Unfortunately, you can’t get it as a standalone upgrade

The second-generation Audi R8, which made its debut in the 2016 model year, will be the last supercar of its kind for the German automaker. Audi has already confirmed near the end of 2021 that the R8’s successor will be all-electric, but if there’s one thing that the second-generation model never got, that would be a manual transmission.

2022 Infiniti QX55 vs 2022 Infiniti QX50

2022 Infiniti QX55 vs 2022 Infiniti QX50

Apart from the looks, there are a few major differences that make them unique.

SUVs are the new norm but how about coupe-SUVs? Yes, they are seamlessly attractive vehicles for whom practicality and sleek coupe-like design matter. Infiniti recently launched a more advanced and more performance-centric SUV which is heavily based on the entry-level QX50 but has a higher price tag (of course), is more coupe-like, has engine hardware and software refinements, has more standard features, and of course a better interior experience including a refined ride quality. But that makes the QX50 inferior, right? Not exactly. The QX50 is a proper compact SUV with a lot of “goods” for the price like its meticulously crafted cabin, loads of features on offer, and everything feels right except for the dual infotainment displays which might be fiddly to use on the go. For the 2022 model year, Infiniti has added the ProPilot Assist suite for all the trims, made wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility too, and a few added features sprinkled across all five trims. So if both of them have already impressed you, which one would be your pick?

The BMW M2 Evolves as it Inches Closer to Production

The BMW M2 Evolves as it Inches Closer to Production

Check out the size of those air intakes and the grille

2022 is a big milestone for BMW’s M division as it marks its 50-year anniversary, so it’s not surprising that the brand has a big year ahead of it. One of the most important models will be the new BMW M2 that you see here, and these latest spy shots showcase something a bit unexpected. The G87 M2 is destined to be revealed in the metal sometime before the end of 2022, and it should go on sale as a 2023 model, so what can we expect?

This prototype is wearing thinner camo and less padding that previous models that we’ve spotted, and that’s a bit deal. We can now say with certainty that the G87 M2 won’t have the big controversial grille. You can tell largely by the smaller air intakes in the corners and the divider that separates the smaller kidneys from the air damn below, which also features a set of segregated, smaller air intakes.

Beyond this, this prototype was also sporting a quad exhaust setup, and it looks like it will have the same lip spoiler from on the M Performance model. Although, if you want something a little more aggressive, the M Performance Parts catalog will be more than happy to oblige. This mode does sit closer to the road, though, signaling the expectation for a stiffer ride and sharper handling.

You can expect the G87 M2 to continue on as a RWD-only model, forgoing the option for AWD that available with the M4. BMW will offer a six-speed manual transmission alongside the automatic for those of you that still want to row your own gears. Base output should come in at around 400 horsepower with the Competition model pushing that figure up to around 430 ponies. This is the same S58 engine found in the M4, but don’t expect it offer the same level of power or performance unless you stop by a tuner for some extra work.

Chances are that the G87 M2 will be revealed in the summer of 2022, and it could even be followed by an M2 CS and, potentially, and M2 CSL.

Used Car Values Will Soon Experience A "Bloodbath"

Used Car Values Will Soon Experience A "Bloodbath"

The higher their values are, the harder they fall

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic had mixed effects on the auto industry. A shortage in semiconductors has led manufacturers to do strange things. BMW, for instance even removed touch screens on some of their models as a way to steer through the pandemic, while some brands such as General Motors outright sold fewer cars this year, surrendering its crown to Toyota as America’s best-selling automaker after a 90-year dominance. As a result, a number of new car buyers migrated towards the used car market, which also has led to a thin inventory of used cars.

Would You Pay Six-Figures For A 1962 Ferrari 250 GTE With A Chevrolet LT1 Engine?

Would You Pay Six-Figures For A 1962 Ferrari 250 GTE With A Chevrolet LT1 Engine?

And many other changes to accommodate the new engine!

When launched back in 1962, the 250 GTE was powered by a 3.0-liter V-12 engine that delivered a total of 237 horsepower and 193 pound-feet of torque. At launch, the car was priced at $12,600, and right now, at auction, you can find them selling for as much as $400,000.

But what happens when you swap the V-12 engine, and go for a Chevrolet LT1 V-8 engine? A 250 GTE powered by a V-8 engine is now listed on Bring a Trailer and the current bid is $125,000 - that’s what.

It's official: Mazda Is Giving The Rotary Engine One Last Chance

It’s official: Mazda Is Giving The Rotary Engine One Last Chance

Mazda is giving the rotary engine an epic send-off with a tri-rotor version for its upcoming sports car

Mazda has been hard at work on its next flagship sports car and the latest patents, filed in Europe, suggest that a rotary engine will be in the center of the car’s propulsion. The hypothetical sports car has been in development since, at least, 2015, when the Mazda RX-Vision was unveiled. We know the car is coming, but we don’t know when exactly. What we do know is that Mazda will finally give us a proper successor to the RX-7. Here’s what the latest patents suggest.

The 2024 BMW M5 Hybrid Confirmed via A New Set of Spy Shots

The 2024 BMW M5 Hybrid Confirmed via A New Set of Spy Shots

The hybrid M5 is just now testing for the first time, and won’t be revealed in full force until 2023

Rumors of a BMW M5 hybrid have finally been confirmed thanks to the latest M5 prototype that has been spotted doing some public road testing. We know this isn’t a basic 5 Series due to the extra-large brakes, but the “Hybrid Test Vehicle” sticker on the driver’s door exposes BMW’s desire to take the M5 electric. There’s also a new flap on the front fender, which is likely for a charging port indicating that this is a plug-in hybrid M5 and will likely offer some kind of usable electric-only range. It should be noted that this charging door is in the same place and is the same shape and size as that on the 545e xDrive.

With all of this in mind, will BMW manage to keep the V-8 under the hood? We’re going to say that it’s quite likely. Part of the reason the M5 is going the hybrid route is to help it not only cut fuel consumption but meet the stricter emissions regulations. As of now, there’s not much more to say about this prototype, but this is its first outing, so if it will be revealed anytime in 2022, it’ll come much later in the year, with 2023 being more likely. It should go on sale as a 2024 model.
