7 American Cars That Are Quicker Than Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye And Cost Less
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is, without a doubt, a very quick representative of the modern American muscle car. Its 6.2-liter, supercharged, pushrod V-8 puts out 797 horsepower and 707 pound-feet (959 Nm) of torque. That said, when it comes to American performance and muscle cars, there are others that match or even surpass the Hellcat Redeye’s performance capabilities and at a lower cost too.
2021 Porsche 911 (992) Targa Widebody By Ares Design
When you hear words "Ares Design" the first cars coming to your mind should be the S1 or the Panther ProgettoUno.

Emilia Hartford No Longer Has The Most Powerful C8 Corvette
The Chevrolet Corvette C8 is one of the most desired sports cars on sale today. So much so that GM is having difficulties keeping up with demand. The C8 is the first mid-engine Corvette to make it to production and, even before the arrival of any performance versions, the new platform has already proven to be very capable. Speaking of performance, ever since YouTuber Emilia Hartford built her own twin-turbo C8 “Vette” – the most powerful one in the world – we knew the race was on. And now, someone else has built an even more powerful one.

Singer 911 DLS Attacks Nurburgring
A few months ago, we talked about the Singer 911 DLS, which is a 500 horsepower, air-cooled, rear-engine, masterpiece, based on the 964-generation of the Porsche 911. We’ve been hearing about the car since 2018, but it was just a few months ago when the first customer car was finally ready. To say that the 911 DLS is the ultimate interpretation of an air-cooled 911 is a bold statement, which is why Singer decided to take it for a spin at the Nürburgring for some real testing.
2022 Mercedes AMG SL63
The next-generation Mercedes AMG SL63 has repeatedly been spotted out testing. The car is slowly being unveiled, as it features less camouflage every time. In fact, the new AMG SL63 is showing us almost all o its design features. Compared to models like the SLS AMG and its successor, the AMG GT, it was always a bit on the softer side in terms of the overall driving characteristics. However, things are about to change with this new generation, as it is the first SL, developed by AMG. What will this mean for the SL’s current target group?
This Porsche 959 Prototype Is One of Very Few Surviving Examples In Existence
Developing a car from scratch starts with some drawing and calculations, then the building of test prototypes, then pre-production cars, and eventually the pilot production vehicles. Most of the time, test prototypes are usually destroyed when their use has been exceeded, yet here we are looking at a test prototype of the Porsche 959 – a car that is believed to be one of the few surviving examples of the F-Series prototypes from 1985. It’s currently listed for sale on Mechatronik for an undisclosed price, but is It truly authentic?

Drag Race: Can The Mustang GT Convertible Take On The GR Supra?
The Toyota GR Supra is one of the most controversial vehicles of our time because of what it’s based on. Regardless of the platform it’s based on, one thing was made clear: the GR Supra is a very capable performance car. With a BMW-derived (but Toyota-improved) 3.0-liter, turbocharged, inline-six that makes 382 horsepower and 368 pound-feet (499 Nm) and a quick-shifting, ZF eight-speed automatic, it manages a 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.9 seconds.

2022 Lexus IS 500 F SPORT Performance
The IS family already has a 5.0-liter V-8 stuffed into the regular 500, which turned out to be a fire-breathing performer.

2022 Ferrari California Spyder Revival By GTO Engineering
Ferrari unveiled the 250 California Spyder SWB at the 1960 Geneva Motor Show, and it soon became an iconic supercar. With only 106 units built, you can imagine auction prices in our day are sky high.

So, how can you afford one? Well, you don’t! Or maybe you do... if you have between £750,000 - £850,000 ($1-$1.2 million) in your bank account. If you do, head over to GTO Engineering and they will build a California Spyder for you.
If the name sounds familiar is because recently they unveiled the Squalo V-12, but they are also famous for cars like 250 GT SWB Revival or the 250 Testa Rossa Revival.
The Fast And Furious Tokyo Drift Nissan S15 Is Very Much Alive
As absurd as the Fast and Furious franchise has become, you have to admit it included some amazing vehicles. In fact, not long ago, we did a list with some awesome F&F cars that, in our opinion, didn’t get enough screen time. However, there’s another one that has a history and we deemed it interesting enough to get its own article. It’s Sean’sNissan S15 Silvia from Tokyo Drift. No, not “Mona Lisa”, the other one.

The Lexus IS 500 Blends V-8 Power With Styling at Anti-German Prices
Can Lexus’ latest attempt at a sports sedan truly out-shine the stuffy Germans at BMW, Audi, and Mercedes?

2021 Ferrari F8 Spider By Novitec
It is officially two years since Ferrari launched the F8 Spider back in 2019. And, if you ask us, the supercar was pretty close to being perfect, and no changes were really needed. But Novitec always finds something that can be improved. The updates offered for the F8 Spider are kind of similar to what we have already seen on the F8 Tributo unveiled at the beginning of 2021 (not the N-Largo pack though).
