Breaking the Laws of Physics in a Hayabusa-Powered Radical SR3

Breaking the Laws of Physics in a Hayabusa-Powered Radical SR3

You need strong neck muscles to enjoy this one!

Spa-Francorchamps is one of the world’s most famous tracks and the Radical SR3 is one of the world’s most successful open-top sport-prototypes. Pair the two together and what you get is some seriously intense action especially since what’s at stake here is taking the Eau Rouge-Raidillon sequence of uphill bends flat out. It’s even scarier than it sounds.

The 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Has a Frunk Problem

The 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Has a Frunk Problem

At this point is anyone surprised that GM’s latest and greatest has problems?

Back in May we brought you a fun little tidbit about how the C8 Corvette’s frunk acts as a speed limiter. Well, that was a fun twist, but the idea is that if the frunk isn’t securely latched, there are visual and audible warnings inside and the car’s speed is limited to 82 mph. Now, complaints are starting to show up in forums and directly to the NSHTA with claims that the C8 Corvette’s frunk is randomly opening at speed, blocking the view of the driver, damaging the vehicle, and — obviously – creating a very dangerous scenario.

You Just Might Be Able to Get a RWD Audi R8 In the United States Again

You Just Might Be Able to Get a RWD Audi R8 In the United States Again

The RWD Audi R8 soldiered on in Europe and now it looks like it’s coming back to the U.S.

Remember back in 2018 when Audi released the Audi R8 V10 RWS in a limited production run of just 999 examples? It didn’t last long here in the States, but Audi kept it as a main part of its lineup over in Europe. Now, three years later, a new listing on the EPA’s fueleconomy.gov website hints that it’s making a comeback to the U.S. Market in both coupe and convertible form.

This is How the Porsche 997 GT2 RS Stacks Up Against the 991 GT2 RS

This is How the Porsche 997 GT2 RS Stacks Up Against the 991 GT2 RS

This 911 GT2 RS comparison reveals how different the 997 and 991 really are

Born from Porsche’s need to homologate its cars for GT2 class racing, the 911 GT2 debuted in 1993, when it was based on the 993-generation 911. A twin-turbo flat-six model since day one, the GT2 was updated to 996 specs in 2001 and then to 997 specs in 2007. In 2010, Porsche came up with an even more aggressive version, the GT2 RS. Rated at 612 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, it was Porsche most powerful car for the 2011 model. A follow up came in 2018 with the 991-generation, this time around with 690 horses and 553 pound-feet of torque on tap. However, the 991 GT2 RS lost the manual transmission. The latter is by far the most impressive GT2 RS built to date, but is it actually much better than the 997 model?

Car for Sale: Amazingly Rare, RHD, 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV

Car for Sale: Amazingly Rare, RHD, 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV

It may, occasionally, catch fire but, otherwise, it’s amazing

Lamborghini is known for making some of the world’s most outlandish cars. The Aventador is arguably the last of the old-school greats, a big, heavy supercar with a naturally aspirated V-12 engine positioned behind the seats and its tiny brother, the Huracan, has been a steady seller for years.

But Lamborghini wasn’t always hell-bent on making supercars with its first cars being laid-back grand tourers. It all changed, however, when the Miura arrived. And then, while everyone was still wiping off their drool, Lamborghini struck again with this, the Miura SV.

Jaguar Trademarks "EV-Type" - Is This a Hint at an Electric F-Type Successor or an Electric E-Type Revival?

Jaguar Trademarks "EV-Type" - Is This a Hint at an Electric F-Type Successor or an Electric E-Type Revival?

The EV-Type name could hint at spiritual successor to the E-Type, a next-gen F-Type EV, or even a production version of the Vision Gran Turismo!

Trademarks are funny business – sometimes automakers file them just to hang onto a certain name, and other times they manifest into official product names. And now, Jaguar has trademarked the name “EV-Type,” leading us to believe that the company is planning a second EV after the all-electric Jaguar XJ arrives next year. What that second electric model will be, however, is a complete mystery, but the name “EV-Type” name does give us some clues.

Matt Farah Exposes The One Thing Wrong With the 2020 Porsche Cayman GT4

Matt Farah Exposes The One Thing Wrong With the 2020 Porsche Cayman GT4

It seems that the 2020 Porsche Cayman GT4 would be perfect with a gearbox upgrade

Porsche revised the range-topping Cayman GT4 for the 2020 model year with notable performance upgrades. Although the entire Cayman range switched to turbocharged flat-four engines, Porsche kept a flat-six in the GT4. Not only that, but it also replaced the previous 3.8-liter unit with the 4.0-liter flat-six from the 911 GT3.

This engine cranks out an extra 34 horsepower and increases top speed close to 190 mph. Some say that the latest Cayman GT4 is better than the Porsche 911 and Matt Farah seems to agree in his review of the sports car. However, Farah also believes that the Cayman GT4 needs one specific aftermarket upgrade to be perfect.
