Kinetik Automobili Makes the First Electric Supercar from Bulgaria But Its Future Is In Danger

Kinetik Automobili Makes the First Electric Supercar from Bulgaria But Its Future Is In Danger

Kinetik Automotive developed the first Track-ready Electric car, but it might need your help to continue its work

When we think of electric vehicles, usually the first to come to mind is Tesla - the brand that started the modern-day EV revolution. Then there’s Rimac and their Nevera hyper EV, or some of the more mainstream names like Porsche, with their Taycan. What probably doesn’t come to mind is a small Bulgarian manufacturer called Kinetik Automotive. The small carmaker is currently cooking an epic EV roadster, but unfortunate events have caused a temporary cease in development.

Queen of the Ring, Sabine Schmitz, Honored With Her Own Corner At The Nürburgring

The first Corner at the Nürburgring to be named after late Racing Driver/ TV Presenter Sabine Schmitz

After a prolonged fight with cancer, professional driver and TV presenter, Sabine Schmitz passed away, earlier this year in March at the age of 51. Following a change.org petition, one of the corners at the famed Nürburgring has been dedicated to paying homage to the German racer. More than 10,000 people supported the proposal on the very first day, and the number of voters eventually surpassed 50,000. The plea drew a lot of attention, and suffice it to say, action was taken.

Hoonigan's 2JZ Supra-Swapped Ford F-150 Frightening Has Sprung to Life

Hoonigan’s 2JZ Supra-Swapped Ford F-150 Frightening Has Sprung to Life

The Hoonigan team took it for dyno testing and it makes over a 100 horses more than the stock 2JZ engine

The yesteryear Ford F-150 Lightning was one heck of a truck, especially in its second generation. It came with a supercharged V-8 mill that was officially the world’s fastest production truck at that time, hitting a top speed of 147 mph in a run in 2003. Now, no one in their right minds would swap this engine for something else, but the folks at Hoonigan did; and we love it!

Presenting, the Ford F-150 Frightening: an SVT Lightning that’s now powered by the 2JZ engine from the Toyota Supra. The team took it to a dyno, and the results are quite impressive for a shop truck.

The 2022 Honda Civic Performs Pretty Well Against The Toyota Corolla and The Mazda 3 On the Drag Strip

The 2022 Honda Civic Performs Pretty Well Against The Toyota Corolla and The Mazda 3 On the Drag Strip

The 2022 Civic comes with better power figures, a turbocharger, but also a lousy CVT to even out the other advantages

The folks at Throttle House brought three ‘regular’ cars on a drag strip. These urban commuters are daily drivers that are meant to be economical, practical, and comfortable. No one actually purchases them solely considering how they perform in straight-line races. But, now that they’re here, we are actually curious to know which sedan trumps.

So, the contenders here are the Toyota Corolla, the Mazda 3, and the brand new 2022 Honda Civic. Which Japanese car do you think will win?

Volkswagen Debates Bugatti's Fate As the Pressure of Electrification Rises

Volkswagen Debates Bugatti’s Fate As the Pressure of Electrification Rises

Bugatti might become a Hyper EV carmaker under Rimac’s ownership, but a deal needs to be made first!

Recently, a new consortium offered close to $9.2 billion in order to buy Lamborghini off VAG. Theoffer was turned down and a new offer was made. That offer, too, was apparently turned down, but that doesn’t mean the German concern is not in the midst of deciding what to do with its assets. Bugatti has enjoyed a good run under VAG ownership and the French manufacturer continues to come up with limited editions based on the Chiron. With that being said, it appears not all is as good as it looks on the outside. Volkswagen Audi Group is currently debating on whether Bugatti should continue to be a part of the company’s portfolio or not and a certain Croatian manufacturer might take the opportunity.

Spy Shots: The 2022 Mercedes AMG SL Moves Closer To Production

The 2022 Mercedes AMG SL Has Dropped The Camouflage Almost Entirely

A while back we shared everything we knew about the soon-to-be-unveiled Mercedes AMG SL. The normal version of the upcoming SL was spotted running tests last year and, not long after, the AMG version showed up in camouflage – a couple of times. Each time, we got footage of it, it revealed more and more of its design, and now, it’s almost “naked”, as it seems the roadster has “undressed” most of its camouflage.

For Better or Worse, 2026 Marks the End of the Audi Brand as we Know It

Audi is making its move, and it could end up being a front-runner in full-scale electrification

Audi finally revealed the production version of the E-Tron GT in early 2021, and to our surprise, it was a lot more than just a rebadged Porsche Taycan. This was a very important thing to take note of as it signals at least some uniqueness for the future of the Audi Brand as it shifts into full scale electrification. That shift, which was once thought to be closer to a decade away, is now on the horizon as new reports say that the Audi brand is about to take a big leap forward much sooner than expected, leaving the brand as we know it in the past. The future is a lot closer that we all though, folks.

The GTV Could Save Alfa Romeo But Skepticism Is Warranted

The GTV Could Save Alfa Romeo But Skepticism Is Warranted

The Alfa Romeo GTV could be revived as a retro two-door coupe or a four-door competitor to the BMW 4 Series, i4, and Tesla Model 3.

At this point, I wouldn’t blame you if you felt bad for the Alfa Romeo brand. It’s been on the verge of death for a while now, but the brand’s new CEO and help from the newly formed Stellantis have raised a little hope. And, despite the cancelled plans to revive the GTV and 8C, we’ve recently learned that the company is still considering a new GTV, and now we know that it won’t be an SUV. In fact, if the GTV really is brought back to life, it’ll take on some pretty heavy hitters from BMW and Tesla, among others. Is there still hope for the Alfa Romeo brand? Let’s look at this new development and find out.

This Turbocharged K24 Lancia 037 Tribute Could Be Your Perfect Project Car

An Awesome, but unfinished Lancia 037 Tribute is looking for a new owner, and you have to see it

The car marketplace is as vast as the universe itself and every now and then we see some very ambitious projects. This is exactly the case with this one. Someone decided to take on an ambitious project to make a Lancia 037 Tribute car. The original 037 Stradale was built in just 200 copies and if one goes on for sale, it usually has a steep asking price. Apparently, an enthusiast got inspired by the Kimera EV037 and decided to build his own 037. For one reason or another, the project car is now looking for a new owner and, luckily, the current bid is nowhere near what the original costs.

Although Mercedes beat them to it, with the SLR Stirling Moss, the company hasn’t made anything like it in a while. Because of this, German private collector Roland A. Bussink has taken it upon himself to rectify this. The result is a unique and highly exclusive Bussink GTR SpeedLegend.
