Taiwanese Supercar Tuner Zacoe Just Released Package For The Ferrari F8 Tributo

Too bad the package is just visual

Supercar tuning companies have produced some truly wild creations over the years. The RUF Yellowbird was one of the first examples to make waves around the world when the iconic video of the modified Porsche 911 drifting its way around the Nurburgringwas released. Ever since, supercar tuners have sprung up all over the place, trying to squeeze even more performance from some of the most dynamically capable cars on Earth.

2023 Mercedes-AMG SL - Performance, Price and Photos

2023 Mercedes-AMG SL - Performance, Price and Photos

The folks from Afalterbach have revitalized the SL-Class with new powertrains, cutting-edge tech and for the very first time, All-Wheel-Drive

The Mercedes SL (Sport Licht), which translates to Sport Light in German, is a car that set the benchmark for sport and luxury for nearly seven decades. The 300 SL name has its weight in gold and the latest Mercedes SL (the first one in nearly a decade) is the direct descendent of the SL Roadster from the early 1950s.

The 2023 Mercedes SL Roadster is a new car from the ground up and it essentially replaces the S-Class Cabriolet and the AMG GT Roadster. The folks from Affalterbach have worked extensively on the SL to transform it from a boulevard cruiser to a genuine open-top sports car, reminiscent of the original. Gone is the foldable hardtop roof and in comes a canvas soft top. Also, AMG is calling the SL Roadster a 2+2 and for the first time in the model’s history, 4-Matic All-Wheel-Drive now comes as standard.

These 15 cars are legendary and the 2023 GR Corolla can give each of them a run for their money

The 2022 Toyota GR Corolla is the latest and most anticipated hot hatchback to come out.

While we don’t have official performance figures, we know that the smaller, less powerful GR Yaris can reach from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in as little as 4.6 seconds. This means that Toyota’s new hot-hatch will be able to keep up with the following iconic performance cars, we enthusiasts lust after.

So, here are some things that you should know about the Aston Martin Vantage:

Take a Ride in the Craziest Sports Car You’ve Never Heard Of

The very rare Trident Venturer proves that one manufacturer’s demise is another one’s success

There is hardly a country with more defunct manufacturers than the U.K. Over the last 100 years, dozens of car brands have come and gone. Some of them, however, did things right, only to be forgotten by time. Such is the case with one of Britain’s most obscure and rare sports cars ever made – the 1970 Trident Clipper. U.K.-based YouTube channel, furiousdriving has managed to get access to one of the very few Trident Clippers made and tell us all about the quirks, features, and history of the car.

Mercedes wants This New AMG GLE to be a Future Classic

It is available for all AMG versions of the Coupe and SUV versions

Everyone loves an anniversary - they are a special time to remember where you came from. Car manufacturers especially love anniversaries because it gives them a chance to tell potential customers how long they’ve been on the block. 2022 happens to be the 55th anniversary of AMG, so Mercedes decided we needed another version of the GLE. SUVs and specifically crossovers have been a booming market for years now and every manufacturer is cashing in. The latest example of this from Mercedes AMG is the limited "Edition 55" version of the AMG GLE 53 and GLE 63 S Coupe.

Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Porsche is hard at work on the more track-focused Porsche 911 GT3 RS (992)

With the “regular” 911 (992) GT3 out and official, all eyes are now headed towards the GT3 RS. As expected, the more hardcore version of the already hardcore GT3 will feature more of everything - except for the weight, of which it will have less. The most important thing is that the latest most track-focused normally-aspirated 911 is underway, and here’s what we can expect.

Updated 6-21-2022: The Porsche 911 GT3 RS has been spied one last time prior to its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Check out the spy shots below!

A Mini with a Hayabusa Engine Gives Nightmares To A Ford Mustang

A Mini with a Hayabusa Engine Gives Nightmares To A Ford Mustang

A Hayabusa-swapped classic Mini proves that lightness and high revs can match the raw power of a big V-8...sort of

Drag racing two very different vehicles usually result in a thrilling outcome. CarWow’s latest drag battle features an almost stock, Ford Mustang GT, and a classic Mini Cooper that has been heavily modified. At first glance, it hardly sounds like a fair race, but the Mini has dropped the standard blender in favor of a Hayabusa motorcycle engine. It seems like a classic race between horsepower and lightweight, in which the Mustang has a lot more engine displacement and horsepower while the Mini relies on lightness and high revs.

This Tesla-powered 1972 Plymouth Satellite "Electrollite" Is A Homebuilt EV Muscle Car

This Tesla-powered 1972 Plymouth Satellite "Electrollite" Is A Homebuilt EV Muscle Car

Can electricity be a worthy substitute to a turbocharged V-8? This Tesla-powered Plymouth Satellite provides an answer with a tire-shredding prejudice

Tesla-swapping a classic American muscle car is still a highly divisive subject. However, a 1972 Satellite isn’t exactly as sought-after as its more performance-oriented, MOPAR sibling, the Roadrunner, so exceptions can be made. We know that the third-generation Satellite was powered by a variety of engines, from 225 to 400 cubic inches, and while we don’t know what engine was initially put in this one, it now has a Tesla P100D with all the cool features and none of the safety. That Racing Channel finds out if it’s still as fun to drive and pits it against a 700-horsepower, 1969 Dodge Dart.

These Two Pristine Plymouth Cudas Could Be Worth More Than Some Classic Exotics

Barret Jackson 2022 Las Vegas Auction introduces the two best examples of the iconic Plymouth Cuda, and one of them is extra-special

Classic American muscle cars are still some of the most desirable cars by collectors and enthusiasts. The Plymouth Cuda is among the most iconic representatives of the 1960s and early 1970s American motoring. The third generation came out in 1970 and is one of the last muscle cars to have actual muscle. Now, not one but two of the most pristine examples are up for grabs through Barrett Jackson. Both cars are the 1971 model year and are listed as no reserve, but one of them is extra special.

Rendering: An Alpina-Branded Toyota Supra - It's a Love or Hate Affair

Rendering: An Alpina-Branded Toyota Supra - It’s a Love or Hate Affair

Unfortunately it will forever be just a rendering!

Alpina pretty much needs no introduction. For nearly six decades it has been making BMW cars better. Now BMW is working on finalizing a deal that will bring Alpina in house, which means in the future things will look a little bit different.

In 2019 Toyota launched the fifth generation Supra, and while many might be impressed by the quality of the sports car, it is in fact just a rebadged BMW Z4. Well, nearly anyway. So, with the Supra actually being a BMW, what if Alpina was to offer its own interpretation of the compact sports car? It’s okay, go ahead and get mad. I’ll wait.

10 Hatchbacks To Keep Your Eye On in 2022

10 Hatchbacks To Keep Your Eye On in 2022

One could argue that 2022 will be the year of the hatchback

Hot hatchbacks have come a long way since their inception in the seventies. The current hot hatches have an accepted formula: taking a standard model, increasing the engine output, and beefing up the suspension to go around corners a bit too quickly. The current high-performance versions offer between 250 and 400 horsepower, with better agility than they did decades ago. The emissions and running costs are infinitely much better. For 2022, automakers have upped the ante with a few offerings that will maintain the ongoing theme. So, with that said, here’s a list of 10 hatchbacks to look out for in 2022.

Rendering: This Is What the 2023 Honda Civic Type R Will Actually Look Like

It is June, and we have the final renderings of what the top dog from the Civic lineup could look like

After many teasers, spy shots, and racetrack runs, the all-new Civic Type R will launch by the end of June or in the first week of July. Yet, surprisingly, Honda has been keeping quiet about its best hot hatch of all time. But given the massive fanbase of the Civic Type R, it has been the subject of many renderings, like this rendering from UNESS DESIGN of the 2023 Type R model. At best, this is what the new Civic Type R will look like when launched in the summer of 2022.

This 964 Porsche 911 Turbo by Singer Kicks off a New Era of Porsche Tuning

This 964 Porsche 911 Turbo by Singer Kicks off a New Era of Porsche Tuning

And it does it with 510 horses under the hood

Singer announced its first turbocharged creation back in February 2022. It was a tribute to the original 911 Turbo – the 930. The main highlight was the turbocharged, traditional air-cooled engine. It was the first turbocharged model ever made by Singer, and it had an impressive output of 450 horsepower. After the 930, Porsche launched the 964. Initial plans were for the Turbo 964 to be offered with a turbo engine, but there was not enough time to build one, so the original 964 had the same 3.3-liter engine from the 930. Two years later, the 964 actually received a 3.3-liter turbo engine. As was to be expected, after the 930, Singer focused its attention on the 964. The new Turbo Study project takes the first one a step forward and it is both sportier and more powerful. As usual, the project is developed with input from the customer, as Singer wants the car to be catered to the customer’s own personal taste.

Pogea Racing Gives the Alfa Romeo 4C A Second Chance At Life

Pogea Racing Gives the Alfa Romeo 4C A Second Chance At Life

The Alfa Romeo 4C may live on, but it still doesn’t have a manual

I must admit when Alfa Romeo unveiled the 4C back in 2013 I was really impressed by how beautiful the car looked. At a first look, it had everything a compact sports car needed: the looks, the carbon fiber chassis, the efficient engine, and the dynamics. On paper, it all looked great. But, after that I got in contact with the car: there was no manual, the car sat very low ,and it was very difficult to get in and out of. And, that’s not to mention the fact that it failed to meet NHTSA safety requirements. Suddenly, the 4C wasn’t as impressive.

Pogea Racing wanted to give the 4C another chance and announced a new “Michelin 4C” package. The model is presented as a racer, but it is pretty much a 4C with a very cool aerodynamic package and some updates under the hood.

$7.4 Million Ultra-Rare Pagani Huayra Looks like a 1950's Interpretation of the 2030's

$7.4 Million Ultra-Rare Pagani Huayra Looks like a 1950’s Interpretation of the 2030’s

It’s based on a ’normal’ Huayra, but you wouldn’t tell by looking at it.

Pagani has achieved an almost mythic reputation in the automotive industry as it produces some of the most outlandish, quickest, and highly customizable cars in the world. However, they have only produced two models, the Zonda and the Huayra, although there have been numerous rare and specialized versions of each model. The latest ultra-exclusive model is possibly the most visually modified Pagani ever, the Codalunga. Only five units will be made and each has been sold for nearly $7.4 Million.

In case you were wondering what that hard-to-pronounce Italian word is, Cadalunga means ’longtail’ in Italian. While you would not guess by looking at it, the Cadalunga is essentially a Huayra underneath the wildly changed body.

Jaguar has a new roadmap that aims to push the brand deeper into luxury territory

Jaguar aims to move even further upmarket with a big push toward being a brand that’s rooted “firmly in luxury.” A brief look at Jaguar’s history, however, paints a picture of a brand with sports car heritage at its core. This new shift upmarket and the fact that the F-Type is set to bow out in the near future, calls the brand’s future heritage into question. Is there still room for sports cars in Jaguar’s future plans, and how can the brand carry on its long-running heritage? It won’t be with the internal combustion engine, that’s for sure.
