2021 Infiniti Q50 Signature Edition
Infiniti has introduced the new Q50 ‘Signature Edition’ to spice up its model range a bit. The luxury sedan has been on the market for the better part of the last decade, and it was getting lost in the highly competitive segment. The automaker had refreshed the car recently and even came up with a powerful, sportier version called the ‘Red Sport 400’. For 2021, Infiniti has opted for subtle exterior and interior upgrades and selected a ‘classy’ approach. It is said to be a limited-production edition, but the company hasn’t announced how many Signature Editions will be produced.
The Most Powerful BMW M Engine Wasn’t Found In a BMW - Until Now, That Is
Throughout its existence, BMW has made some pretty epic engines (and some not so epic), but their most powerful engine wasn’t actually put in a BMW car. It was the McLaren F1 that received BMW’s S70/2 6.1-liter V-12 back in the day, and for a long time, that was the brand’s most powerful engine. Until now, that is. Things have changed and we have the BMW M5 CS to thank for that.
Care to Know How the Drift Analyzer in the new BMW M3 and M4 Works?
BMW has taken some very controversial decisions in recent times, but the one we are talking about today will definitely be liked by BMW enthusiasts. The latest M3 and M4 models come with a drift mode. Having at least 480 horsepower, the BMW M3 and M4 are certainly capable of kicking the back end out, which is why the good people of BMW have given us the M Drift Analyzer. The YouTube channel “BMWBLOG” gives us a demonstration of this function.
Mercedes-AMG Confirms High-Performance EV That Can’t Beat A Tesla Model S
Not that there was any other way to go about it, but it’s finally official. Mercedes is carrying the internal combustion engine ethos to the EV segment, too, concerning the AMG. The automaker will introduce high-performance AMG models to the EQ electric sub-brand soon. The company announced that it will be launching two EVs very soon, with one of them probably debuting later this year.
While sounds exciting at the onset, the company gave an idea about the performance numbers and it turned out to be a damper. To put things into perspective, the AMG EQ won’t be able to beat the Tesla Model S also. Not a very smart strategy, is it?
A Rolls-Royce Phantom With a Supra 2JZ Swap Actually Exists
In the car world, there are certain things that are considered highly unusual or even taboo. For example, LS-swapping a Ferrari 250 GTO or stancing-out a Bugatti Chiron would be considered a criminal offense by many car enthusiasts. It seems, in Japan, many of these things don’t matter. In fact, Japanese car enthusiasts strongly believe that the more a car reflects the driver’s personality, the better. Edward Skvortsov’s YouTube channel showcases one such car and this one might surprise you with its weirdness.
How the Acura Type S Badge Came to Be
The W124 Mercedes 500E Was Amazing, But You Should Thank Porsche For That
Among the vast array of automobiles being produced over the years, there are some that not only define a segment but invent it. The Mercedes W124 500E is one such car. Even to this day, the 500E is being revered by car enthusiasts across the globe, as the first true performance sedan. In this video, Hagerty’s Jason Camisa explains in detail all you need to know about the mighty German sedan, and there’s a lot you need to know.
The BMW M3 Competition Is Lighter Than Claimed Because Politics
If someone tells you that a particular performance car’s weight figures are rigged, you would assume the company has listed it to be lighter than what it actually weighs. I mean, wouldn’t a lighter car hold more advantage over a heavier car? But as it turns out, that’s not the case with the Euro-spec BMW M3 Competition. The folks at MotorTrend weighed the car and found out that the BMW M3 Competition is actually 150 pounds lighter than what the company claims. Why, you ask? Because of EU regulations! Yeah, we were as confused as you at first.
Here’s Why the 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi Is the best Scooby Ever
There was a time when carmakers rejoiced at the thought of being able to offer performance sedans to the masses. The likes of Mitsubishi and Subaru spruce to mind almost instantly, although the former has been plagued by the SUV disease and dropped the Lancer Evo altogether.
Subaru, on the other hand, is still selling the Impreza in various declinations - not WRX STi, though, which is sad. None of them, however, will give you the nostalgia like the 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi with Prodrive goodies.
Check Out the Lincoln Zephyr Reflection Concept Freshly Revealed in Shanghai
Being a purist at heart, it’s hard to condone the new futuristic design philosophies that most EVs follow. There are a few exceptions once in a while, like the Nio ET7, which looks absolutely stunning. But, it looks like the ET7 now has competition in the looks department. Lincoln has somehow managed to strike a perfect balance in every aspect and has come out with this gorgeous EV called the Zephyr Reflection. Previewed at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show, the Zephyr Reflection has got us drooling and we can’t get enough of it. Unfortunately, it won’t be coming Stateside as it is a China-exclusive model.
2022 Genesis Electrified G80
Hyundai’s premium brand Genesis was born just a few years ago and is already bringing some very competitive models to the market. Initially focused purely on luxury sedans and, more recently, SUVs, the brand is now officially stepping into the EV market. Now, the company has revealed the all-electric Genesis eG80 at the 2021 Shanghai International Automotive Industry Exhibition (Auto Shanghai 2021), and it is the first Genesis model to be unveiled outside of Korea.
2021 Audi A6 E-Tron Concept
Audi is arguably the most active automaker that’s electrifying its lineup. Barely a few days after debuting the Q4 e-tron SUV and Sportback, the German automaker has now given us a preview of the A6 e-tron, the electric version of the luxury namesake sedan. Teased at the 2021 Auto Shanghai, the A6 e-tron concept showcases what to expect from the production version of the EV and also goes on to show that Audi is not getting rid of sedans anytime soon.
This is the Chinese Market Ford EVOS And, Probably, The Fusion In America and the Mondeo in Europe
The 2021 Auto Shanghai revealed many interesting studies, among which the Ford EVOS. There has been a steadily increasing trend of sedan models, becoming crossovers and SUVs. Although the EVOS looks like a blend of a station wagon and an SUV, it is believed that this will be the next Ford Fusion (in the US) and Ford Mondeo (Europe). The EVOS is the first Ford product, largely developed by the brand’s team in China.
The Next-Gen BMW M3 Will Probably Be Electric
The current BMW M3 (and M4, for that matter) are so new that the welds on the have yet to cool, so why would I even consider talking about the next-gen model already? Because time tends to fly, and the next-gen M3 will actually be here before we know it. Add to this the fact that automotive technology is advancing incredibly fast, and it’s hard not to think about how different the next-gen M3 might actually be. Will BMW follow the hybridization route or will it go one step further and make the BMW M3 (And M4) full-on electric vehicles? I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’ll be the latter, and my reasoning behind this is rooted deeply in logic.
2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS - The Important Things You Need To Know
Mercedes-Benz has taken the covers off its first luxury electric sedan, the EQS. The EQS is built on an all-new architecture and follows the design philosophy of the other EQ products. It comes with a lot of breathtaking stuff that leaves a lasting impression. To give you a peek of what to expect, the car comes with a 478-mile range, the 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system in the top trim, and a massive 56-inch Hyperscreen inside the cabin! Oh, and did I mention that it is also officially the world’s most aero-efficient car?
Here’s Your First Look At The 11th Generation Honda Civic Sedan
This Is the Sedan That McLaren Unfortunately Won’t Build
Sedans have been losing popularity even since the first SUV hit the market and that decline is still ongoing today. At the same time, a sedan kind of goes against the idea of a pure-breed sports car/supercar, which is why McLaren will never build one just like it won’t build a crossover or an SUV. But what if?
Watch the BMW M4 Competition Take On The Audi RS5 And The Mercedes-AMG C63 S
The rivalry between the three Germans can never end. Be it any segment or niche, they are waiting to rain on each other’s parades. This time, it’s on a drag strip, courtesy of Carwow. The Audi RS5, BMW M4 Competition, and the AMG C63 S competed against one another in a series of races to determine who the king is when it comes to straight-line dashes. Who have you got your money on?
Tesla’s Pettiness Shows in Its Budget Canadian Model 3 Pricing Scheme
As you are probably well aware, a lot of governments offer some relatively big incentives to get people into EVs, probably, well before they would normally make the transition. Government incentives have been a big deal here in the U.S. and even over in Europe. Canada also has a new incentive – a $5,000 tax incentive – but there’s a catch: The electric car in question needs to have a base price under $45,000 and cost no more than $55,000 with options. Tesla’s entire lineup was out of the running, until recently when Tesla dropped the price of the entry-level Model 3 to $44,999 by removing autopilot and cutting range down to just 151 km or about 94 miles. This is where it gets sketchy, and it gives a good reason for criticism.
A New Mitsubishi Lancer EVO Isn’t Happening, But In Another Dimension, This Is What It Looks Like
Looking at the recent industry trends, the Lancer nameplate has more chances of being brought back as a crossover/SUV than in a continuation of a legendary lineage of cars. For the time being, the Mitsubishi Lancer is not making a comeback in any form, but we’d love it if it looked like this.
Need Some Juice In Your Future AMG Hybrid? Just Do a Few Drifts
Electrification gradually spreads throughout the entire performance spectrum of cars. The latest to succumb to the trend are the cars from the AMG lineup. We already know a lot about the E-Performance system, which Mercedes AMG introduced about a month ago. Although the company will still use the V-8 in their higher-end models, we know the new AMG C63 will now have a modified version of the M139 unit, used in the A45S. The difference here is the turbocharger, which is electric, similarly to the one in the AMG One. It seems, however, AMG is trolling us with an interesting feature.
