A 5,500 Lbs Bentley Flying Spur that can keep up with modern supercars on the Autobahn? Yes, please!

If there’s one thing that is undeniably true for our time, it is that we are spoiled for horsepower. There are plenty of high-power luxury vehicles that can make short work of any hot hatchback, in a straight line, and in some cases, even supercars. This is exactly the case with the Bentley Flying Spur Mk III W-12, as YouTube channel AutoTopNL demonstrates, by blasting down the unrestricted section of the German Autobahn, at full speed.

Can a modified JDM icon keep up with a LibertyWalk Ferrari 458 Spider? Find out below

This Porsche Taycan Coupe Shows What An EV Equivalent of The 911 Could Look Like

This Porsche Taycn Coupe gives a very plausable insight to what a 911-inspired EV could look like

Porsche, like many automotive companies, is working towards a carbon-neutral future.

The Porsche Panamera’s EV counterpart, Porsche Taycan, proves that and the Porsche 911 is also heading the electrification route, from next year.

The 2022 Pagani Huayra R Sounds Like An Old Formula One Car And It’s Epic

The Pagani Huayra R is pure pornorgraphy and makes all the right sounds

Since 1999, Pagani Automobili has been churning out some of the most exciting Italian super/hypercars. After the numerous Zonda editions, came the Huayra’s turn. Like the Pagani Zonda, the Pagani Huayra has come with its fair share of special editions, and in 2022, the most hardcore of all Huayras is going on sale – the Pagani Huayra R. Being a track-focused monster, the Huayra is meant to be driven hard, which is exactly what we see on this video, from the Monza racetrack, in Italy.

Alfa Romeo Giulia: How Reliable It Actually Is

Alfa Romeo Giulia: How Reliable It Actually Is

The Alfa Romeo Giulia is an astonishing, performance sedan. Can it debunk the myth of unreliable Alfas?

Alfa Romeo is an old European name in the car industry and has enjoyed a glorious motorsport history, at least in its earlier decades. That said, while Alfa Romeo has given us some pretty amazing cars, over the last decade and a half – 8C, 4C, Giulia, and Stelvio – the company continues to be perceived as a carmaker that doesn’t have the highest reliability. However, this isn’t as true as many would lead you to believe, as we take a closer look at a 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia, courtesy of the YouTube channel, _fast4alfa.

The Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale Shows It's Still Plenty Fast Despite Its Age

The Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale Shows It’s Still Plenty Fast Despite Its Age

The Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale is painfully outdated. Can it still deliver performance worthy of an Italian sports car?

Before the introduction of downforce and lightning-fast automatic gearboxes, top speed was the main boast figure. The Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale is one such car and although is somewhere in the middle between a grand tourer and a sports car, it still manages to impress despite being 10 years old and quite outdated, compared to modern stuff. The YouTube channel AutoTopNL puts the Italian coupe through its paces on the Autobahn.

Top EVs That Can Pose a Threat To Tesla Model S Plaid

Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Makes a Strong Case For Manual Cars At The Autobahn

This manual Porsche 911 GT3 Touring goes over 190 mph on the Autobahn, makes a strong case for stick shift cars

The Porsche 911 GT3 is the ultimate, normally-aspirated 911 and the YouTube channel AutoTopNL recently got its hands on a 992 GT3 Touring – the more street-oriented, “less shouty” version of the normally-aspirated track weapon, without the crazy aero. And while race tracks are the home of the GT3, here, we see how capable the wingless version is, on the Autobahn. Is the “purest 911” capable enough, in the age of turbocharged performance cars?

Drag Race: Lexus RC-F Vs Toyota GR Supra

Drag Race: Lexus RC-F Vs Toyota GR Supra

The GR Supra is quick, but can it deal with the V-8 power of the Lexus RC-F?

Drag races are particularly interesting when they are between two very different cars. With this in mind, Sam CarLegion gives us another drag race between two very different Toyota products. On one side, we have the light and nimble Toyota GR Supra, while on the other, a Lexus RC-F that can best be described as a Japanese muscle car. Both cars send power to the rear axle, but that’s about all they have in common.

This V-8-Swapped BMW 1M Coupe Might Be The Perfect Driver's Car

This V-8-Swapped BMW 1M Coupe Might Be The Perfect Driver’s Car

Does a V-8 engine swap ruin the BMW 1M Coupe’s driving dynamics or does it enhance them? Mike Fernie from DriveTribe finds out

BMW’s slogan is “Sheer driving pleasure” and in reality, most of what has come from the brand’s M-division has managed to live up to those words. The BMW 1M Coupe, in particular, was praised by many, including Jeremy Clarkson, for being one of the best driver’s cars, ever made. However, someone decided that’s not good enough and tore out the 3.0-liter, turbocharged inline-six for a much bigger V-8. Is this individual insane or is he/she on to something? Mike Fernie from DriveTribe takes it for a spin to find out.

How does it stack up to the rest of the lineup and does GTS still stand for the sweet spot in Porsche’s lineup?

2022 Jaguar XJ-C By Carlex Design

2022 Jaguar XJ-C By Carlex Design

This Jaguar XJ-C, reimagined by Polish tuning company, Carlex Design, takes resto-modding to new heights

Because of the oil crisis and stringent emissions regulations, the mid to late-1970s did not spawn many great American cars. The once-powerful American V-8 engines were choked out of their power and became shadows of their former selves. And while American cars from that era are not particularly desired, nor a preferred platform for any form of restoration, this Jaguar XJ-C by Polish tuner Carlex Design is a vision of what can be considered an epic British muscle car/resto-mod from the mid-1970s.

Three Japanese legends from the 1990s show us why they are some of the most desired Japanese sports cars, ever made

Japanese sports cars from the 1990s are some of the most recognized ones amongst the car culture. As described by Jeremy Clarkson, in a movie about the Nissan Skyline GT-R, Japan took over the world…and then lost it. While the latter is a topic for another time, what is true for the Skyline also goes for these three – the Toyota Supra, Nissan 300Z, and Mazda RX-7. Our colleagues from “EverydayDriver” - Todd Deeken and Paul Schmucker - take us on a spirited drive with these three JDM legends to determine the pros and cons of each and why they are so desired.
