We Now Have Proof That Tesla Is Trying to Dethrone the Porsche Taycan At The Nürburgring

We Now Have Proof That Tesla Is Trying to Dethrone the Porsche Taycan At The Nürburgring

The only explanation for the Model S Plaid to return to Green Hell is to set a new record for a four-door EV

Tesla was quite active at the Green Hell before the Covid hit us, but it seems like it’s back there again; this time, with a prototype of the Model S Plaid. The only logical explanation for the red prototype to be there is it gunning for a record lap. The company had unofficially set a record back in 2019, but is back two years later to set another record that could possibly be an official attempt to dethrone the Porsche Taycan. Exciting stuff, isn’t it?

2022 Volkswagen Passat Limited Edition

2022 Volkswagen Passat Limited Edition

Volkswagen says goodbye to the Passat in the U.S. market with a special edition that’s not all that special

The Volkswagen Passat is officially dead in the United States. Well, not quite yet, but it’s definitely taking its last breaths as Volkswagen prepares the Chattanooga plant in Tennessee for production of the Atlas, Atlas Cross, and all-electric ID.4. As the U.S. market bids farewell to the Passat, it’s going to honor it in the only way it knows how – a special edition. The car you see here is just one of four configurations, with a total of 1,973 examples being built. Why 1,973? Because 1973 was the first year the Passat was offered.

Volkswagen will produce 411 examples of the Passat special edition in a combination of Aurora Red Metallic with a Titan Black interior. This model represents the original production code of the Passat – 411. Next, there will be 423 examples of the passat finished in Racing Green Metallic with a Mauro Brown interior. 423 represents the Chattanooga, TN area code. Another version finished in Pure White with Mauro Brown interior will be produced in just 524 examples, representing the opening date of the Chattanooga plant: May 24, 2011. Finally, the fourth iteration of the Passat special edition will be offered in Grey Metallic with a Titan Black interior. 615 represents six generations of imported Passats (6), one generation assembled in Chattanooga (1), and 5 decades of U.S. sales (5).

Outside of the exclusive exterior paint and interior theme, there’s not a whole lot to set the Passat special edition apart from the pack. The seats inside will feature a “x of 1973” tag on one side and “Chattanooga 2011” on the other. Comfort sports seats will come standard with Vienna leather while the exterior will ride on distinctive 18-inch, fifteen-spoke wheels. Pricing for the Passat special edition comes in at $30,295 but the Aurora Red Metallic will add an extra $395 to the ticket.

2021 Mercedes-Benz E450 Wagon - Driven

2021 Mercedes-Benz E450 Wagon - Driven

Why buy an SUV when you can have an amazing and sporty wagon instead?

Being on the market since 2017, it might seem logical to glance over the Mercedes E-Class until a new-gen model arrives in a few years. That actually couldn’t be further from the truth because the E-Class lineup was refreshed for 2021 with new technology, and updated appearance, and a more efficient powertrain. We’ve been itching to see how the new E-Class stands after its most recent refresh, so Mercedes let us spend a week with the E450 Wagon. It didn’t take long for us to realize that the fifth-gen E-Class has aged well, and in fact, we’d take the E450 Wagon over most SUVs – how’s that for a plot twist?

2024 BMW 5 Series - A Retro Look With Modern Tech?

BMW isn’t really hiding the next-generation 5 Series, as two different Versions have been spotted testing

The BMW 5 Series has long been one of the brand’s most significant models. With nearly 50 years of history and millions sold, the 5er has enjoyed great success. The current G30 generation was recently updated, so it’s not going away in the next couple of years. That said, we’ve already seen spy footage of the next generation BWM 5 Series, set to debut around 2024. This is what we know so far.

Watch An Audi RS7 Get Schooled By A BMW M5 CS On A Drag Strip

Watch An Audi RS7 Get Schooled By A BMW M5 CS On A Drag Strip

They’re both quick, but the BMW M5 CS sprints faster than the Audi RS7 at higher speeds

The Audi RS7 and the BMW M5 CS are both quick vehicles, but how they do fare against each other? Daniel Abt finds out the answer by pitting the two together in a drag race. While the Bimmer makes more horsepower, the Lord of the four rings produces a lot more torque. Both the Germans are powered by V-8s and feature an all-wheel-drive system. With similar specs, you’d expect them to have a close race. However, the M5 CS blows the RS7 out of the water. What do you think could be the reason for it – transmission, weight, tires, driver’s skill?

A $7 Part Killed the $3.25 Million Valkyrie's Debut Run At the Goodwood Festival of Speed

A $7 Part Killed the $3.25 Million Valkyrie’s Debut Run At the Goodwood Festival of Speed

The Aston Martin Valkyrie suffered stage fright and stopped working during its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

A Cosworth-built 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V-12, 11,000 RPM, hybrid powertrain, 1,160 horsepower (865 kilowatts). Those are just some of the astonishing numbers of the $3.0+ million Aston Martin Valkyrie. The car is able to hit 60 mph (97 km/h) in under 3.0 seconds and only 150 units will be produced with deliveries starting in September. Moreover, there is an even rarer Valkyrie AMR Pro, limited to just 40 units. Nevertheless, the Valkyrie’s debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed turned out to be less than glamorous, as the car had an unexpected malfunction during the hill climb.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E Set a Guinness World Record for Efficiency

The Ford Mustang Mach-E Set a Guinness World Record for Efficiency

It seems the Ford Mustang Mach-E might be the end of Range Anxiety

Lately, the Ford Mustang Mach-E has been the most talked-about EV. It was initially met by mixed reactions as Ford not only slapped the Mustang name on it, previously belonging exclusively to the two-door pony car, but they also gave it many of the Mustang’s design elements, such as the front fascia and the tri-bar taillights. However, as it turns out, the Mach-E has one key redeeming feature, as it recently got into the Guinness world records book thanks to its efficiency.

The Hyundai Elantra N Is Impressively Better Than Expected

The Elantra N shares the same engine and power specs with the other N models, the Veloster N and the Kona N

Hyundai is trying hard to make its performance ‘N’ division more mainstream. The automaker has infused the Elantra with the ‘N’ steroids to come up with its first high-performance sedan. The company has taken the wraps off the global version of the Elantra N, but confirmed that it will come to the U.S. as well. The U.S.-spec Elantra N will debut at the New York Auto Show that’s slated for August 2021.

Two Asian performance Sedans battle it out on the drag strip to determine which is the quickest

The 2023 Mazda CX-5 Could Make Life Very Hard for the BMW X3

Mazda might be taking on the BMW X3 as the 2023 CX-5 brings potent inline-six Engines and rear-wheel-drive to the Table

Not long ago, we shared details on how Mazda plans to reinvent itself. Now it appears that the brand’s best-selling model - the CX-5 - will not only continue to be a part of Mazda’s portfolio but is also about to become a lot more exciting. Mazda has confirmed that the upcoming CX-5 will “ride” on their new rear-wheel-drive architecture. Of course, you’ll still be able to get it with all-wheel-drive, but the new platform promises a lot more flexibility and sportiness. But that’s not all that’s new for the next generation CX-5.

2022 Genesis G90

The BMW 7 Series and Mercedes S-Class Better Watch Out

Despite manufacturers churning out a variety of luxury SUVs of late, full-size luxury sedans are still the epitome of opulence and lavish luxury. Even now, the luxury sedan market is quite competitive. The new Mercedes S-Class recently came out, Audi has updated their A8, and an all-new BMW 7 Series is on its way. The German trio has been killing it for years, with the occasional Jaguar XJ, Lexus LS, or Cadillac CT6 securing a rather insignificant market share. Now, however, Genesis is the one gunning for the full-size luxury sedan segment, by coming up with an all-new G90. Here’s what we know so far.

Battle Of The Midsize Pickup Trucks: Toyota Hilux Takes On the VW Amarok In a Drag Race

Carwow pits the Toyota Hilux and Volkswagen Amarok against each other in a drag race, and the result will probably surprise you.

A drag race between two stock midsize pickup trucks is about as scientific as a drift competition with shopping carts. Pickup truck buyers are rarely interested in the performance aspect of these vehicles, but Carwow still gives us the answer to a question we never thought of asking – which is the quicker pickup truck. This time it’s the Toyota Hilux and Volkswagen Amarok that line up for a quarter-mile drag and despite the two vehicles being very similar on paper, the outcome is quite decisive.
