This 1993 Jaguar XJ220 Supercar Was Birthed To Compete with the Porsche 959

This 1993 Jaguar XJ220 Supercar Was Birthed To Compete with the Porsche 959

Jaguar’s only supercar was once the most powerful and still is a sensation in the collector world

Imagined as a complete race car, the XJ220 had no intentions of making it to production until it received a tremendous response at the British International Motor Show in 1988. A bit different from the concept car, the production-ready XJ220 was bred in collaboration with Tom Walkinshaw Racing and was the fastest production supercar of its time. The legendary supercar from Jaguar had just one purpose; to give tough competition to the Porsche 959, the Lamborghini Diablo, and the Ferrari F40. If you are a collector or a longtime admirer of this masterpiece, this dreamy supercar will be at the RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction on the 19th of August.

Ford Bronco vs Bronco Raptor - Does The ‘Raptor' Factor Add Value?

Ford Bronco vs Bronco Raptor - Does The ‘Raptor’ Factor Add Value?

Ford has come up with a beefier version of the Bronco, but it still doesn’t have a V-8!

Until the start of this decade, the only off-roader that Ford had in its arsenal was the F-150 Raptor. Even that was an off-road variant based on a standard truck. But, in 2020, we were blessed with a fantastic off-roader built from the ground up, and it was christened the ‘Bronco’. Fast forward to 2022, and the automaker has elevated the Bronco by slapping it with the ‘Raptor’ moniker. With the standard Bronco being a pretty potent off-roader to begin with, how much difference does the Raptor make?

Porsche Carrera GT - Performance, Price, and Photos

Porsche Carrera GT - Performance, Price, and Photos

The Carrera GT is one of Porsche’s most lethal road cars of all time, with not many that can challenge its visceral driving experience, even two decades on

This is the Porsche Carrera GT, the German automaker’s first-ever supercar for the 21st century. Porsche’s flagship of the mid-2000s carries a design and an exhaust note that still gives us the chills to this day. Although the Carrera GT became the definitive Porsche road car, it was unlike any of its predecessors. This is not a high-strung racing 911 converted for road use. Instead, Porsche created the Carrera GT as their expression, of the ultimate road car.

Featuring one of the best-sounding V-10 engines of all time, the sound alone is enough to make you want one. Yet, Porsche lasered-focused on every aspect of the car to ensure perfection. With only 1270 models produced, it is a unique and exclusive vehicle in every aspect. Porsche wanted the Carrera GT to be a standout model, with no relation to anything the brand had created. Yet, at the same time, it is an embodiment of the core ideology of the brand. It is a seamless blend of form and function in the most Porsche way. 18 years on, the Carrera GT continues to remain an enthusiasts favorite and is one of the best aspirational and desirable cars of all time.

Watch an Audi R8 Try to Beat the BMW M5 Competition At Its Own Game

Watch an Audi R8 Try to Beat the BMW M5 Competition At Its Own Game

The naturally-aspirated, rear-wheel-drive Audi R8 makes a valiant stand against one of the most powerful BMW M cars ever made

Drag racing is the most straightforward way of seeing which car is quicker. While it certainly doesn’t give you the whole picture, CarWow continues to provide “what if” scenarios, by pitting two, often, very different cars against one another. This time it is the base Audi R8 rear-wheel drive versus the (almost) range-topping BMW M5 Competition. The two cars couldn’t be more different even if they wanted, which technically, devoids the race of any logic. Still, it’s fun and you want to see what happens.

Here’s What The New Toyota MR2 Really Needs to Continue the Legacy

As the revival of Toyota’s midship runabout slowly takes form, we discuss what it needs in order to succeed as a compact sports car

The Toyota MR2 successor has been, pretty much, confirmed. Japanese publication, Best Car, was the first to announce the good news, and we now have a pretty good idea of what to expect. While Toyota has not yet revealed any details about its future, mid-engine model, we know Daihatsu and Suzuki would lend a hand for the new Toyota MR2. The mid-engine model is scheduled to return sometime in 2025, and this is what it needs to bring to the table in order to compete with the likes of the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

This Plymouth Roadrunner Concept Proves We Can't Let Muscle Cars Die

This Plymouth Roadrunner Concept Proves We Can’t Let Muscle Cars Die

This independent design proves that the world will be a darker place without Muscle cars

By now, it’s clear that Muscle cars, as we know them, are coming to an end. Dodge, the brand that was, arguably, the most loyal to the Muscle car genre is preparing to introduce the first-ever EV Muscle car.On the other hand, Dodge is not willing to let the Muscle car die just yet, which means the supercharged V-8 could stay, at least, for a few more years. With that said, Chrysler has a lot of iconic nameplates from the Muscle car era, including the Plymouth Roadrunner, which was virtually revived by a Rostislav Prokop, for our sister site, Hot Cars. The concept of the Czech graphic designer looks quite believable, and we think now is as good a time as any to bring back the iconic model.

2022 Nissan Frontier - Performance, Price, and Photos

2022 Nissan Frontier - Performance, Price, and Photos

With its tough-as-nails styling, the new Frontier retains an old-school charm and remains Nissan’s value proposition in the competitive mid-size truck segment

Nissan’s old mid-size Frontier pickup first went on sale nearly 15 years ago (2005-2021). While much of the competition received several mid-cycle refreshes with some models even getting an all-new generation, the Frontier soldiered on with strong sales. Surprisingly, despite its age, customers flocked to it for its dependability and value package.

But after what seemed like an eternity, Nissan finally decided to overhaul the Frontier for the 2022 model year. The third-generation Nissan Frontier is an all-new truck from the ground up. New styling, a new drivetrain, and a new cabin with updated tech.

There’s just one thing that carries over to the new generation, which is part of the frame. According to Nissan, there was nothing really wrong with the outgoing model’s frame and so they chose to base the new Frontier on the same tough-as-nails platform that buyers these days are after.

It would have been one of the first convertible SUVs

When it debuted in 2002,the Porsche Cayenne was a true oddball.A large, V-8-powered chunky SUV built by a dedicated sports car manufacturer was something nobody saw coming. In fact, the Cayenne essentially invented the performance SUV segment altogether. However, since Porsche was on a role making the weird a reality, they decided to look into making other versions of the Cayenne including a coupe, a long-wheelbase version, and a convertible, the latter of which they made a prototype.

Honda S2000 - Performance, Price, and Photos

Honda’s ultimate roadster is a performance driving machine that still gets the pulse racing even two decades on

The Honda S2000 is a celebration of Honda’s motorsport lineage. For Honda’s 50th anniversary, the Japanese automaker wanted to do something special. Something timeless that would be their pure expression of driving pleasure. The plan was to create the ultimate roadster. Starting with a blank sheet of paper and a dream, the end result was the S2000.

Now it’s been over a decade since the end of production of the AP2 back in 2009. But even today, the Honda roadster holds its weight as one of the greatest sports cars of all time. In our modern automotive market, even enthusiast models have become diluted and emotionless. The S2000 stands as a reminder of putting the pure visceral experience of driving first.
