Hidden Within This 14-Minute Video is a Drag Race Between the Bugatti Veyron and the SSC Tuatara
Bugatti and SSC have been fighting for the production car speed record since the 2000s. Bugatti set its first record with Veyron in 2005, when the first iteration of the supercar hit 253.8 mph. SSC stole their record in 2007 with the Ultimate Aero TT, improving the benchmark slightly at 256.1 mph. Bugatti recaptured its record in 2010 with the Veyron Super Sport at 267.8 mph. The record is currently being held by the Koenigsegg Agera RS at 277.8 mph, but Bugatti set an unofficial record in 2019 with the Chiron Super Sport 300+, the first production model that reached beyond 300 mph with a 304.7-mph benchmark.
2021 Jeep Wrangler 80th Anniversary Edition
To commemorate the brand’s eight-decade existence, Jeep has introduced the “80th Anniversary Edition” for six of its vehicles - the Wrangler, Gladiator, Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Compass, and the Renegade. While most of the changes are cosmetic, some come with a few new features. On the Wrangler, the special edition package is available for both two- and four-door models.
You Must Check Out This Quadbike With An Audi V-10 Heart
Quad bikes aren’t new inventions. They’ve been around for some time now, and there are many manufacturers — Honda, Suzuki, Arctic Cat, among them — that build and sell quad bikes. But we’re not here to talk about those quad bikes or all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) as they are otherwise known. We’re here to talk about a unique ATV, and it might as well be called the quad bike: the Engler F.F Superquad. While it does fit the profile of an ATV, the F.F Superquad is anything but a normal quad bike. It’s more like a mishmash between a motorcycle and a supercar carrying enough power to make other exotics weep. YouTube sensation Shmee found some time away from his busy schedule to check out the Superquad ahead of its debut at Salon Prive in the U.K., and, as you may have guessed, even Shmee found himself geeking out over this extraordinary vehicle.
GM Could Be Teasing Cadillac’s Next Large EV
General Motors has posted a very interesting and, uhm, sharp….. sketch to its Instagram account depicting what is clearly a Cadillac and what could be a larger SUV or, perhaps, even a pickup truck. But, see, that’s the real tease, as GM has posted this baby with absolutely no context outside of the words “lean & mean” – at least 50-percent of which doesn’t make sense.
Remember That Time When Oldsmobile Introduced the World’s First Automatic Transmission?
One of the first American carmakers, Oldsmobile was founded all the way back in 1897. It built the world’s first mass-produced car in 1902 and went under General Motors ownership in 1908. As a division of GM it slotted above Chevy and Pontiac, but below Buick and Cadillac. The brand was shutdown in 2004, but it remains famous for its groundbreaking technology and designs. Oldsmobile introduced more than 20 industry-first technologies, including the first production fully automatic transmission. It’s called the Hydra Matic and it was introduced for the 1940 model year.
2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Autobiography by Kahn Automobiles
English aftermarket company, Kahn Automobiles, is known to create ravishing examples of stock vehicles. The company has been doing it for years, and the latest model to roll out is the Land Rover Range Rover Sport Autobiography. This black beauty receives a whole lot of new equipment on the outside to make it look sportier than it already is. The example here is a 2018 pre-worshipped model and has 9,000 miles on the odometer. The asking price breaches the six-digit mark when converted to USD. Worth it?
This is NOT How You Want to Find Your Chevy C8 Corvette
Online trending challenges have become the rage these days. Some challenges like the Ice Bucket Challenge caught one because they were tied to a larger and very important cause. Other challenges like the Tide Pod Challenge were stupid and dangerous and should never have even started. Somewhere between those two challenges lies the “drop your car challenge.” Nothing about this challenge served a higher purpose, but there’s also nothing dangerous about it. The purpose of this challenge is simple: show off your car. That’s it. It’s an ultimately harmless exercise that revolves simply letting everyone see what your car is. Or at least that’s what we thought until we saw this photo of a Chevrolet Corvette C8, or whatever’s left of it. This is a different interpretation of the “drop_your_car_challenge,” and, unfortunately, it’s not a very pleasant one.
Doug DeMuro Reviews the Lamborghini Centenario And You Have to See It
The Lamborghini Centenario shook the world at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, when it was unveiled to celebrate Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday. Aside the waves it sent through every car-centric medium at the time, it’s even more striking today, four years later, as it continues to look like an alien of a car.
Superformance Donates Its MKII Shelby 289 Slab Side To Charity
Superformance is known to create some classic builds that are priced like crazy, but the company has gone generous with one of their builds – the 1962 MKII Shelby 289 Slab Side. Superformance has donated the car to Petersen Automotive Museum for its upcoming digital gala that’s set to take place on September 26. The car is officially licensed by Shelby and built aesthetically and dimensionally correct to the original289 Cobras of the early 1960s. The only difference here is that the Superformance builds have modern-day mods complementing the classic styling. Isn’t that a win-win situation?
Is This the Mythical 2021 Porsche 911 GT We’ve Been Waiting For?
A few months back, when it unveiled the 992-generation 911, Porsche also showcased a winged model in its Super Bowl add. The blue-painted coupe looked a lot like the 911 GT3, features the same big wing atop the rear deck. But Porsche has yet to reveal that car. What’s more, it seems that it is actually preparing the release of a different type of GT model. A new teaser just surfaced on Bring a Trailer, which hosts a bidding auction through which the winner will have the opportunity to secure a build slot for the upcoming model. The teaser photo shows a Porsche under a cover, and the details suggest that it’s not a GT3 or a GT2. But what could it be?
This Video About the Maserati MC12 Will Remind You Of Better Times
The Maserati MC12 is arguably one of the most underrated supercars of all time. Produced in limited quantities back in 2004 — only 50 were built — the MC12 was a two-seater supercar that Maserati built to comply with homologation requirements so it could enter the FIA GT Championship with a race-spec version of the same car. Sixteen years later, not a lot of people remember the MC12 or even its shared history with the much more famous Ferrari Enzo. Fortunately, Petrolicious’ original series Homologation Specials did not forget about the MC12 and its impact in the supercar world. It doesn’t get as much love and respect as the Enzo, but the MC12 should be remembered better than it has been. It wasn’t the best car to drive, and it was oft-criticized for being too big, but the MC12’s place in the annals of Italian performance cars is secure, or at least it should be.
You Probably Can’t Take the Tesla Model S Plaid To The Track
With what we’re guessing to be a 130-kWh battery, 1,100 horsepower, and a 0-60 mph sprint of less than two seconds, the Tesla Model S Plaid is – probably – the most extreme production car of the year. It is at least three-tenths of a second faster than the Model S performance and nearly two seconds quicker than the base Long Range Plus model. Add in the 200-mph top speed, and you have the most impressive electric vehicle made thus far and something that could be quite dangerous if left in the wrong hands, and that’s kind of what we’re here to talk about today.
