This Lamborghini Countach is Marlboro Red and Has a Lexus Twin-Turbo V-8
The Lamborghini Countach is one of the most famous out of all of the supercars to have come out of the 20th century. With its Gandini-penned wedge-shape design that became the standard for what a supercar should look like, the Countach really was one of those cars that looked better than they went. As such, Lamborghini tried to make it even more dramatic as the years rolled by but failed miserably at the job. Could this tobacco-liveried replica succeed where Lamborghini failed?

2020 Audi RSQ8 by Mansory
Audi wagons and SUVs are a hit among tuners. We’ve seen ABT, Lumma, and many other aftermarket tuners come up with special signature twists on these vehicles. Now, Mansory has laid its hands on the Audi RS Q8. What’s surprising is that the RS Q8 doesn’t go through a radical, bizarre aesthetic-twist, as we saw in the case of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Coastline, the Lamborghini Urus Venatus, and the Mercedes-AMG G63 Star Trooper. I mean, the changes are more than evident, but it isn’t dressed in colors that would win it a prize at a fancy-dress competition.

While automakers like Ferrari are claiming they’ll stay loyal to the internal combustion engine, others are going head first into electrification.
Bentley is one of them, most likely pushed from behind by the whole Volkswagen Group’s change of direction in recent years, following what we all know as Dieselgate. The luxury carmaker has outlined some ambitions plans for the future, including full range electrification by 2026 and a fully-electric lineup by 2030.
The Totem Electric GT Is A Guilt-Free Alternative To the Alfa Romeo GTA

The Man Behind the Maserati MC12 Shares Thoughts On the New MC20
The MC20 was trumpeted as a sort of a comeback for Maserati, further proof that the Italian carmaker is alive and kicking and not just churning out special editions for its aging lineup.
At the same time, the MC20 is the first supercar to come out of Modena since 2004’s MC12, which was based on the Ferrari Enzo. Maserati also likes to brag that the MC20 is 100-percent Maserati, yet Frank Stephenson believes it lacks personality, a paramount trait for a super sports car that’s also of Italian ilk.

2021 Ford Bronco V-8 VelociRaptor by Hennessey
The only chink in Bronco’s armor is the missing V-8 engine under the hood. Although Ford matched the Jeep Wrangler in every aspect, dare I say, even better in some, the lack of a V-8 will be a deal-breaker for some folks. However, aftermarket tuners have grabbed on to this opportunity. PaxPower was one of the first companies to announce a Bronco V-8 and soon many companies jumped the wagon. The latest one to do so is Hennessey Performance.
Hennessey has announced that it will be building a VelociRaptor version of the Ford Bronco with a V-8 mill that will churn out 750 horses. This will be a limited-edition build and will cost around four-times the cost of a standard Bronco. Is it worth it?
