An All-American Custom Harley-Davidson That Costs More Than American Muscle Cars? No, We Ain’t Kiddin’!
Harley-Davidsons are commonly used as canvases by custom bikemakers all around the world, but there’s just something special about an all-American custom Harley-Davidson. One such custom Hog has been prepped by Southern Country Customs (hereon called SCC), a custom shop founded by ex-NASCAR driver Rusty Wallace, and as you’d expect from a man of such caliber, the build is quite insane, including the equally insane price tag.
The Brabus 820: A Porsche 911 Turbo S Tuned to Perfection
When the current 911 Turbo S was launched in 2020, it was downright impressive. With 640 horsepower, it became the quickest, most powerful 911 Turbo ever. The 992-gen 911 Turbo S is capable of so much more, though, and Brabus just proved it through an impressive tuning program.
The Mercedes-Maybach Haute Voiture Concept Previews a New, Ultra-Luxurious S-Class
When you say “Mercedes-Maybach” you automatically think about luxury and opulence. However, even with the Maybach treatment, the S-Class is still not a worthy competitor for cars like the Rolls Royce Phantom or Bentley Flying Spur Mulliner. However, that could change when this new Concept goes into production.
During the latest Design Essentials event that took place in Nice, France, Mercedes-Maybach displayed the Haute Voiture – a close-to-production concept inspired by haute couture that previews a very luxurious S-Class set to arrive in 2023 as a limited edition.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Porsche 911 ST
Back in the 1970s, the racing world was very competitive - maybe a little bit more than it is today. With strong competition coming from makers like Ford or BMW, Porsche really had to offer something better than everything else. That’s how the Porsche 911 ST was born. The new race car was built for just one year: 1970 to 1971, and there were only 24 units built. The ST entered various races from Daytona, Targa Florio, and Nürburgring, and even won the GT class at Le Mans. Now, 52 years later, Porsche will pay tribute to the iconic 911 ST and its success with a special edition. It is based on the current generation 911 but will carry the ST name.
How Much Money Is Too Much For a New Motorcycle?
Even when you think motorcycles are getting too expensive there are still bikes that are beyond expensive, and they must be selling to somebody, otherwise, the manufacturers wouldn’t be building them. So, how much is too much, and when is it time to back away and look for something more affordable?
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT E-Performance PHEV
We already knew that the next generation AMG GT will bring major changes. First, it will only be offered as a coupe - as the Roadster will be replaced by the new SL, and second, following the footsteps of the SL, it will initially be offered in two versions: GT53 and GT63 - both of which have already been caught testing. A more powerful version will also be offered, however, and just like with the SL, this range-topping plug-in hybrid will wear the E-Performance badge.
2023 Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II - What You Need to Know
Rolls-Royce has finally updated the eighth-gen Phantom after five long years. The automaker has mentioned that the changes to the updated model are based on inputs from its clients. They “implored Rolls-Royce not to make any major changes to an already iconic motor car”. This is a clear indication that the 2023 Phantom doesn’t come with a whole lot of changes. In fact, Rolls-Royce doesn’t even call it a facelift. It has been labeled as a ‘new expression’.
2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Pace Car
Chevrolet Corvette has a very long history of pacing the Indy 500 race. It started in 1978 and 2022 will mark its nineteenth time on the job and its sixth consecutive year. This year, the pace car will be based on the 2023 Corvette Z06 and will be driven by former Indycar Series driver and team owner Sarah Fisher.
2022 Mansory Gronos EVO S P900
Mansory has a very long history of updating the Mercedes-AMG G63. Just recently, the tuner unveiled two special editions built for the Chinese and the UAE markets. And, because the Middle East is such a big fan of big, luxury, flashy cars, Mansory announced a new special edition built exclusively for them.
If the name sounds familiar - Gronos EVO S P900 - it is because the tuner offered a car with a similar name back in 2021.
1991 BMW M3 Sport Evolution - The Quarter Million Dollar Unicorn?
When BMW designed the M3 E30 it wanted to have a racing sedan that can also be driven on the road. When it was unveiled at the 1985 Frankfurt Auto Show, the model was very well received. In a very short period of time, it also scored many victories in various racing series, making the M3 E30 became one of the most desirable BMW models out there.
The first Evolution model was launched in 1988, and then in 1990, the most powerful model in BMW’s E30 3 Series was added to the lineup. It was, of course, the M3 Sport Evolution, with only 600 units being produced worldwide, out of which only 51 units were built to UK specifications.
Ferrari SF90 VS - The Italian Automaker Prepares A More Powerful SF90 Stradale Because, Why Not?!
Ferrari and Lamborghini are known for their big, powerful V-12 engines. But V-12 engines and the new emission regulations do not go hand-in-hand, so both Italian makers are forced to make extreme changes, say good bye to V-12, and replace them with hybrid technology.
When launched, the SF90 Stradale made history: it was Ferrari’s first plug-in hybrid model featuring a propulsion technology that combines three electric motors and an overpowered V-8.
The Bentley Bentayga Extended Wheelbase Is More Than Just A Stretched SUV With More Legroom
Bentley was founded back in 1919, but the company is nowhere even close to slowing down. In fact, it is reaching new heights with every passing year. The company recently reported that it has had the best-ever first quarter this year in its history, and even its operating profits have increased 162-percent. Believe it or not, the company earns revenue of €212,000 (approximately $224,000 at current exchange rates) per car. And, the Bentayga has to be given credit for much of its success, after all, it accounted for over 33-percent of Bentley’s sales in 2021.
As is with any uber-luxury brand these days, its SUVs are the breadwinners, and Bentley is no exception. The Crewe-automaker realizes this and keeps making new additions to the Bentayga lineup. The latest addition in the model’s portfolio is the Extended Wheelbase version to make it even better for owners who will have it chauffeur-driven. Did I mention it has also gotten a lot more luxurious?
Bruce Banner Becomes The Hulk: We’ve Spied The Ferrari SF90 Stradale’s Hardcore Version, And It Looks Nasty!
The Purosangue has been Ferrari’s spotlight-stealer in recent times. Ferrari has been busy with other projects like the one-off SP48 Unica, but the Purosangue has been the talk of the town. But, that said, we’ve spotted quite a few camouflaged projects of it in recent times. First, we saw a V12 GT Chassis test mule, and now, our spy photographers caught an early prototype for the Ferrari SF90VS. This is a hardcore version of the SF90 Stradale and is expected to be revealed in 2023. So, what’s the scoop that we have so far?
The Ferrari Purosangue Straight Up Needed A V-12 Engine
Right in the midst of the one-off Ferrari SP48 Unica being revealed, Ferrari released a social posting and a new webpage hinting at a new V-12 engine along with the phrase “Heart of a Thoroughbred.” Ferrari was quite vague about the engine otherwise, however, ’Purosangue’ translates to ’thoroughbred’ in Italian, so it was easy to draw a line between the two. The engine could have also been for the production version of this GT Chassis that was spotted testing in late April, but now we know for sure this V-12 will at least land in the Purosangue first.
The Ferrari SP48 Unica Is More Than Just An F8 Tributo With A Makeover
Ferrari recently unveiled its latest one-off model - the SP48 Unica. The unique model was specially made for an old customer of the company who was involved in the development, headed by Chief Design Officer, Flavio Manzoni. Underneath the "skin", lies the platform of the Ferrari F8 Tributo. Make no mistake, however, the SP48 Unica is, for the most part, a completely different animal, and we’ll show you all the differences and what little similarities there are.
The Ferrari SP48 Unica is Evolutionary Bliss
Almost everything that comes out of the Prancing horse’s "breeding grounds" can be called special. That said, it’s Ferrari’s Special Projects division that is responsible for the most unique and exclusive Ferrari models ever made, and the Italian carmaker just gave us another one. The Ferrari SP48 Unica is, as the name suggests, a one-off. It shares a platform with the F8 Tributo, but that’s where the similarities end.
2022 Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae LP 780-4
Lamborghini has unveiled the very last Aventador, the LP780-4 ULTIMAE. It is the latest update to Lamborghini’s flagship model, joining the ranks of the LP700-4 and S. But, it represents more than just the end of the Aventador name, so it’s a lot more special than you might think.
Updated 05/03/2022: Lamborghini took both, the Aventador Ultimae Coupe and Roadster, out for a nice trip on the roads of Emilia Romagna and the Marches. The results are stunning and you can see it in our latest picture gallery. Limited to only 350 coupes and 250 roadsters, the production of the Ultimae - and the traditional V-12 engine - will come to an end in the upcoming months.
2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Brabus 800
When you think of high-end aftermarket companies, some of the top names that come to mind include Hennessey, Mansory, and Brabus. While Hennessey is known for outright performance builds and Mansory for the most radical and unusual mods, Brabus is a blend of the two. It is back with yet another Mercedes build, this time, for the AMG E63 S called the Brabus 800. New wheels and aerodynamic elements on the outside, plush treatment on the inside, and power enhancement to the existing V-8 make this Brabus build an absolute beast.
