’MF Ghost’ Is The Latest Car-related Japanese Anime, And It Picks Up Where ’Initial D’ Left

The sequel to the original Initial D series drops in 2023, and it’s shaping up to be the greatest Japanese anime about cars. Eurobeat intensifies

If you are a car enthusiast, there’s a good chance you’ve, at least, heard of Initial D. The Japanese anime was first released in 1998 and focused around a Takumi Fujiwara – a young boy, delivering tofu in an old Toyota AE86. The story, which was divided into a few “stages”, is being continued by a new series, called MF Ghost, which seems to be picking up where Initial D left off.

Blast From The Past: The Bristol Fighter Is a Viper V-10-powered Unicorn With Gullwing Doors

Blast From The Past: The Bristol Fighter Is a Viper V-10-powered Unicorn With Gullwing Doors

The Bristol Fighter is a bonkers, 1990s remix of a Dodge Viper, Mercedes 300SL, TVR Cerbera, and a Lamborghini Espada

When a car company starts out as an airplane manufacturer, you can expect some very unusual and downright crazy design and engineering decisions. Bristol is one of those companies, and one of the last cars to come out of its assembly plant is the Bristol Fighter. It looks like what Mercedes would have built, if the idea of a 300SL Gullwing successor was realized in the 1990s, only this one has an all-American Viper V-10 up-front. YouTuber and car nut, JayEmm managed to get his hands on one of the very few made and shared his impressions on one of the strangest British sports cars ever made.

Not your typical big-turbo Supra, this 1994 example has been restored to factory specification and demonstrates great pace on the German Autobahn

As you will see, this Japanese classic looks and goes like it just came off the assembly line.

Hoonigan Puts Two Fast & Furious Homage Cars On The Dyno To See What Power They Make

Hoonigan Puts Two Fast & Furious Homage Cars On The Dyno To See What Power They Make

The dyno battle is the precursor to an epic, Fast & Furious-inspired drag race between a Ford F-150 "Frightening" and a Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

Hoonigan shows some love for the original Fast & Furious movie by hosting a "Dyno war" at throtl’s dyno where two cars, inspired by the 2001 Fast & Furious movie, put down some epic numbers, worthy of the franchise. Hoonigan brings their Ford F-150 "Frightening", which is a parts bin special with a 2JZ swap while throtl brings out a 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX, modified to look like Brian O’Conner’s original car. This one, however, is the real deal, so it should be interesting to see what power it makes. Hopefully, no "danger to manifold" signs pop up.

This Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Sets a Guinness Record For The Highest Number Of Donuts

This Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Sets a Guinness Record For The Highest Number Of Donuts

Race of Champions test driver, Terry Grant, sets a new Guinness World record for the highest number of donuts, behind the wheel of a Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo

It’s safe to say that the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is the first all-electric, high-riding station wagon. It’s also pretty quick with the power output ranging from 476 to 761 horsepower, depending on the version. This means that, if the driver so chooses, it can kick its rear end out without much effort, which is why it managed to set a Guinness World record for the highest number of donuts executed on ice.

You Will Never See a 1974 Lamborghini Countach Being Driven Like This In The Real World

Watch as a virtual 1974 Lamborghini Countach gets driven on the limit, consequence-free, in Gran Turismo 7

For most of us, owning or driving an iconic classic like the Lamborghini Countach is, sadly, a distant mirage. Even those few that can afford to own one, preserve them and, more often than not, turn these automotive legends into “garage queens”. Things are quite different in the meta-verse, however, where thrashing any car has zero consequences. We don’t normally post gameplay footage, but when you have a game that looks as good as Gran Turismo 7, it’s all worth it. Enjoy as this 1974 Countach gets virtually put through its paces on an Italian racetrack.

This 1,700-HP Foxbody Is The Rowdiest 1993 Mustang Cobra R You Have Ever Seen

What started out as a 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra was turned into a tire-smoking, drag strip weapon

A 1993 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R is something of a collector’s car, which is why seeing heavily-modified examples like this one, is quite rare. However, the horsepower junkies at Addiction Motorsports don’t care about collecting cars, which is why they’ve turned the red ’93 Cobra into a one-of-a-kind, 1,700-horsepower dragstrip-slaying Foxbody Cobra.

It is the latter of these two that Bjørn Nyland, a YouTuber with a focus on EVs, recently took on a 1,000 km (621-mile) trip, to see how fast the new Swedish coupe can cover the distance. The end result was a pleasant surprise.

Remember the Fast 6 Ford Mustang that got crushed by a tank? Well, it’s alive and kicking with all its 805 horsepower

When it comes to classic American muscle cars, the Ford Mustang is among the most iconic names in the history of fast American cars. The Mustang, like other iconic muscle cars, has been immortalized in cinema, and you may remember this particular example from the Fast 6. The 1969 Ford Mustang “Anvil” may be a movie star, but it’s not an “all-show, no-go” situation like with many movie cars. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

Say Hello To The Most Hideous Mercedes S-Class Ever Conceived

Indian "coachbuilding" has turned this Mercedes S-Class into a nightmare on wheels, and apparently, someone let it rot

Indian tuners have given us some very interesting and ambitious projects. Remember, the Hyundai Accent-based 1969 Ford Mustang or the Honda Civic Si-based Lamborghini Aventador, made by Dream Customs India? While those are some of the better projects we have seen from India, the one we are showing you now is a bit disturbing. The imagery comes from an Indian blogger that goes by Shiva and shows what was once a W126 Mercedes S-Class, in a very neglected state.

For a while, we have been seeing some of the most insane showdowns with some of the weirdest builds ever, but this one takes things even further. It may look like a classic Ford versus Chevrolet duel, but there’s a twist. Hoongan’s very own homage to the Fast & Furious, Ford F-150 Lightning, driven by Paul Walker goes up against an all-American, insanely loud Chevy K5 Jimmy Big Block V-8.

A one-off 935 Flachbau homage, based on a Porsche 996 Carrera, is taking shape and it already looks like a million bucks

It seems the Porsche 996’s rise in desirability has made it a go-to platform for exciting builds. We recently talked about an epic collaboration between Porsche Club of America and Porsche Classic, which spawned the Porsche 996 Classic Club Coupe. From Crucible Coachworks, Pennsylvania comes another epic 996 project. The slant nose was a distinct option for classic 911s and this 996 makes full use of the design, along with a 935-inspired body kit.

This BMW M2 Has Been Modded To Perfection

This BMW M2 Has Been Modded To Perfection

This BMW M2 LCI is insanely quick with just the basic "must-have" modifications

The BMW M2 is considered, by many, to be the sweet spot in terms of accessible performance. A bold statement, indeed, considering the M2 is an entry-level M-car, but while its bigger, more expensive relatives (the M4, M5, M8, etc.) are vast and tech-heavy, the M2 remains relatively compact and simple, by comparison. It’s also a lot cheaper, and, as seen from a test drive carried out by AutoTopNL, this 2017 BMW M2 LCI shows just how capable it is with only “must-have upgrades”.

A Nissan GT-R NISMO Shows It’s still Insanely Fast, Despite Its Age

The Nissan GT-R NISMO shows that it may be old, but it definitely isn’t obsolete, as it touches 200 mph on the Autobahn

The Nissan GT-R has one of the biggest cult followings of any car. The fact of the matter is, the current R35 generation has been around since 2007. That’s 15 years in production, which is two years longer than the R32, R33, and R34 production cycles combined. But while the R35 GT-R may not be aging as gracefully, it’s still insanely capable, and AutoTopNL finally managed to get a 2015 GT-R NISMO in order to put it through its paces, on the Autobahn.
