Does The 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S Have In It To Take Down The Ferrari F8 Spider?
Daniel Abt has posted videos of the Porsche GT2 RS taking on the Porsche Taycan on the drag strip in one instance, and the McLaren 765 LT on another. This time, he brought a 992 911 Turbo S to the strip and pit it against the Ferrari F8. While it’s not a GT2, the 911 Turbo S is no slouch either. As for the Ferrari, it makes over 700 horses and is 600+ pounds lighter than the Porsche. This is the ultimate battle of two quick convertibles – who are you rooting for?

Do you remember Paul Walker’s 10-second Supra from the first Fast & Furious movies? The one that was painted in a mesmerizing orange shade from the first movie in the franchise?

This Hand-Made AMG GT R Speedster Is Beyond Rare
It seems there’s a retro-inspired speedster trend going on in recent times. McLaren Elva, Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2, and Aston Martin V-12 Speedster and the upcoming Speedster DBR-1 all came because of it. Although Mercedes beat them to it, with the SLR Stirling Moss, the company hasn’t made anything like it in a while. Because of this, German private collector Roland A. Bussink has taken it upon himself to rectify this. The result is a unique and highly exclusive Bussink GTR SpeedLegend.
2022 Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO2 - A New Look and Bigger Attitude
Lamborghini launched the first ever Huracan Super Trofeo back in 2014. It was essentially a hardcore track machine built to enter the world of GT3 racing. Fast forward to 2017, the company revealed the Huracan Super Trofeo EVO that benefitted from an aerodynamics package. Fast forward to the present day, the Italian automaker has rolled out its successor, the Huracan Super Trofeo EVO2 that will take part in the Super Trofeo in 2022.

2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo
The 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo is an entry-level supercar that the Maranello-based company launched in 2019. The F8 Tributo replaced the 488 GTB, introduced in 2015, but it’s essentially a mid-cycle upgrade and not a brand-new car. The supercar replaces the 488 GTB in the same way that the 812 Superfast and GTC4Lusso replaced the F12berlinetta and FF, respectively, with the facelift accompanied by a nameplate change.
The upgrade is rather significant as far as design goes. Not only sporting new features front and rear, but the F8 Tributo also boasts more aggressive aerodynamics, which are based on the track-ready 488 Pista. The F8 also shares underpinnings with the Pista and generates the same 710 horsepower. The F8 Tributo arrives just in time for the facelifted Lamborghini Huracan Evo and the relatively new McLaren 720S. Let’s find out how they compare.

The World’s Fastest Chevy C8 Corvette Strikes Again and Breaks Its Own Record
Do you remember the world’s quickest Chevy C8 Corvette that was booted from the LS Fest last month for being too fast? Well, that car is now in its natural habitat and doing what it does best. This C8 Corvette had set a record earlier this year for being the quickest to quarter-mile, taking just 9.41 seconds. The owner of the car, Emelia Hartford, and her team were working on it to make it even quicker, and within three months, they’ve broken their own record. It is by the smallest of the margins, but hey, a record is still a record.
This Rare 550 Barchetta Is The Last Front-Engined V-12 Ferrari!
It goes without saying that we are spoiled for choice when it comes to future classic cars. This is especially true nowadays when the main priorities in the automotive industry are cutting costs and producing more eco-friendly vehicles. Because of this, most modern cars will not appreciate nor become desirable collector’s items. Because of this cars like this rare Ferrari 550 Barchetta are bound to appreciate even more. Luckily, you can still pick them up relatively affordable (for a rare exotic car).
Aston Martin Is Ready To Say Goodbye To The Manual Transmission
It feels like the manual transmission is currently under fire and, despite all the evidence that says its days are numbered, it somehow manages to stick around – at least for now, anyway. But, as time goes on, more and more automakers will begin to start phasing it out on mainstream models and sportscars alike. The latest example of this is Aston Martin, which apparently plans to retire its manual gearbox altogether, even if that means breaking promises.
10 Things the Ferrari Purosangue Needs to Take on the Competition
Ferrari will build an SUV. I am not joking, the company made an announcement. It will be called the Ferrari Purosangue. That’s the official name of the Ferrari SUV. Ok, Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri implicitly said that he does not want to hear “that word” in the same sentence with the word Ferrari. “That word” being SUV. Ok, Camilleri, I will not do it. Ever. The new Ferrari... truck… will be the most amazing piece of technology ever attempted with the “that word” layout. Luckily, we do know a thing or two about the new Purosangue.
Digression: Is the word crossover any better? Maybe, but I feel it sounds too soft for the status of a Ferrari. The Honda CR-V is a crossover for crying out loud.
The new Purosangue may take a layout similar to what we have been accustomed to with the onslaught of performance SUVs, yet the Italians promised to make it a proper thoroughbred. Incidentally (not really), Purosangue translated from Italian actually means thoroughbred. Is it just me, or the name Ferrari Thoroughbred (in English) wouldn’t sound bad at all? We have a Superfast and we like it, don’t we? Enough with the strange ideas. Purosangue it is.
Christopher Smith of Motor1 explained how to pronounce it:
“PUR-o-SAN-gue. There are four syllables, with emphasis on PUR and SAN. Phonetically speaking, start with PUR, as in a cat purring. From there just say a soft O as in oh, then SAN with a long A sound like saahn, and finish with GUE, which sounds like way but starting with a g – gway. PURR - oh - SAAHN - gway. See? It’s totally easy.”
This Rare 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT Could Be Your Next Classic Car
When it comes to exotic cars, Lamborghini is one of the first to come to mind. Most of you know the story of how Lamborghini started making cars. So we won’t be delving into that. Essentially, Enzo Ferrari’s temper helped spawn one of the greatest automotive rivalries in history – Ferrari vs Lamborghini. Most classic Lamborghinis are significant cars, which is why Fantasy Junction in Emeryville, California, has this 1967 400 GT 2+2 in its inventory, and it’s looking for a new owner.
2021 Bentley Continental GT3 Pikes Peak Is A 750 HP Monster
Bentley has revealed its new Pikes Peak Continental race car, and it is the epitome of purpose-built performance. This Continental has been thoroughly reworked, and is being billed as the most extreme road-going Bentley ever built. To prepare for the Pikes Peak challenge, Bentley’s engineers built a special aerodynamics kit, reworked the chassis, and pushed the 4.0-liter, twin-turbo, V-8 to an all-new level. Here’s what you really need to know.
