2021 Ducati Scrambler Nightshift
Ducati’s Scrambler division unleashes its new-for-2021 “Nightshift” model on the world in all of its blackout glory in a sinister turn for the usually youthfully-jubilant Scrambler lineup.

The ABS feature is of the corner-sensitive variety to give the Nightshift an edge on the streets.
2022 Volkswagen Golf R Variant
Performance and practicality are two words that rarely go together. More often than not we talk about the perfect compromise between the two, rather than the perfect blend. That doesn’t stop manufacturers from trying to give us the best performing version of a normal car.
Station wagons, in particular, seem to be making a comeback and currently, Volkswagen is rigorously testing a more practical version of its Golf R – the Variant. Regardless of which version we talk about, the people’s car from Germany has always been a good all-rounder, but does the Golf R Variant still has what it takes to compete?
Mercedes-AMG Made Sure You Can’t Dispute the GT Black Series’ Nurburgring Record

The Dodge Viper Has Returned to Racing
Dodge’s Viper, arguably Lee Iaccoca’s biggest gift to gearheads ever, has been seen racing on the world’s race tracks for almost three decades and, although the last road-legal Viper rolled off the production line in 2017, its race-bred namesake is still homologated for racing in the GT3 category which is why famed German tuner and race entrant Zakspeed decided to give the Viper one more shot of proving itself in a 24-hour race next January as it will contest the annual 24 Hours of Dubai.
2021 Lamborghini Huracan STO
Lamborghini has just unleashed the new Huracan STO, a track-derived beast of a car that is infused with DNA from the Huracan Super Trofeo EVO and GT3 EVO racecars. Despite the extreme aerodynamics, a light footprint, and a weight-to-power ratio of 4.607 pounds per horsepower (2.09kg/hp), the Huracan STI is street legal. Under the metal sits a naturally aspirated V-10 that pumps out an exhilarating 640 horsepower (470 kW) and 416.72 pound-feet (565 Nm) – enough to enable some downright impressive acceleration. How impressive? Well, you’ll looking at 3 seconds to 62 mph (100 km/h), 9.0 seconds to 124 mph (200 km/h), and a top speed of 192.625 mph (310 km/h). Lamborghini also says the STO can come to a complete stop from 62 mph in just 98.42 feet (30 meters) or from 124 mph in just 360.892 feet (110.0 meters). This all sounds amazing, but you should know that it doesn’t come cheap. In Europe, the Huracan STO has an MSRP of €249,412 while U.S. customers will have to shell out $327,838.
