2021 Land Rover Defender Works V8 Trophy
The previous-gen Defender is one of the most sought-after vehicles in the market. Aftermarket companies acquire it and give it its own unique twists, each one a lot different than the other. Land Rover has jumped on the wagon, too, and come up with a limited-production Defender Works V8 Trophy. The SUV will come with classic looks and a V-8 engine under the hood. The automaker will build just 25 examples, but none of them are earmarked for the U.S. market. The price? A little over quarter-million dollars!
What Is Maserati Trying To Show Us In These "Official Spy Shots" Of The Grecale?
Firstly, this "official spyshots" game is lame. We don’t know where it started from, but it has spread like wildfire and for the sake of the hype, carmakers are dropping camouflaged teasers of their cars left, right, and center.
Secondly, Maserati is brewing a second SUV/crossover and by the looks of it, this new model going to slot under the Levante and keep some of its styling cues, albeit in a shrunken format.
Can a Multi-Million Dollar Car Collection Really Be Dumb?
A multi-million dollar car collection hardly counts as “dumb” in our world, but let’s indulge Tyler Hoover of the Hoovies Garage YouTube channel for a change. In this video, Hoover takes us on a tour of his car garage, where you’ll see an eclectic mix of vehicles, including a 1985 Mercedes 500 SL, a purple 996-generation Porsche 911, and a Bentley Azure that was once owned by Jean-Claude Van Damme. Hoover does a great job in telling the respective histories of the cars he owns, and the entire collection is more interesting than it is dumb.
2021 Audi SQ7 TFSI by ABT
ABT is back with another Audi build, this time for the SQ7. The automaker recently ditched the diesel engine from this vehicle and dropped an even more powerful V-8 gasoline mill under the hood. In the standard form, the SUV comes with 500+ horses, which is already on the higher end. So, ABT decided to give this bit a skip for this build and went ahead with making changes to the interior and the exterior. The aesthetic changes are significant and make the already-hot SQ7 even hotter.
Meet the Roofless Huracan EVO Aperta That Lamborghini Wouldn’t Build
There are people who aren’t satisfied with just a Huracan Evo; they want more or at the very least, something that’ll serve as a physical manifestation of their status. The drive to be different is the reason the Lamborghini Huracan Evo Aperta exists. It’s a one-off, Huracan Evo-based creation that’s without a roof, windows, or a windshield. It also has a V-10 engine with more power than the Huracan Evo’s “standard” V-10 unit. In other words, it’s a Lamborghini Huracan Evo unlike any other, or as some people like to say, “it’s a one-of-a-kind, roofless monster on four wheels.”
2021 Porsche 718 GTS | Medicine for the Soul
The Porsche 718 is the entry point to Porsche’s sports car lineup. That said, with the introduction of their flat-four engines, many Porsche fans asked themselves if Porsche has lost its way. Obviously, we are not talking about the 911, since the flagship model still goes strong. That said, transitioning to a more eco-friendly drivetrain is a tricky thing to execute right, especially in performance cars that have a cult following. It seems, however, Porsche has realized their mistakes and wants to put things right. Enter the 718 GTS 4.0.
Chip Foose Shows Us What the C8 Corvette Should Have Looked Like
2019 was the year that marked a big breakthrough for Chevy and the Corvette. The sports car’s engine finally transitioned to the middle, after long decades of experiments but not fruition.
The C8 looks more like a supercar than ever – mind, you though, it is no Ferrari. In our book, the mid-engined Corvette is just not quite up to the sexiness of the C7. Sure, it’s all down to subjectiveness and the fact that it’s somewhat easier to get the proportions right in a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive configuration. Of course, we’re not saying that the new C8 looks bad or anything: it’s just that we like Chip Foose’s take better.
2022 BMW iX
BMW revealed an interesting concept called the iNEXT at the 2018 Paris Auto Show. This was the time when the automaker also introduced us to the huge kidney grille. Who knew it would spread like a virus within the portfolio with many of them boasting it on their faces in the years to come?
Anyway, the iNEXT was soon renamed to iX, and BMW said that it will be roughly the size of the X5. But unlike the iX3, which is essentially the electric version of the standard X3, the iX will be much more. For starters, it’s based on a completely new platform that will underpin the future electric models, too.
This One-Off McLaren Senna Merlin Goes To Show Just How Magical MSO Really Is
A one-off McLaren Senna that’s been customized by McLaren Special Operations is up for auction on Bring A Trailer. The unit, number 401 of the 500 Sennas made, is unique for several reasons, none more significant than the “Merlin” name it’s been bestowed. The one-of-a-kind Senna “Merlin” currently has a bid of $900,000 with eight days left in the auction.
This McLaren 765LT Can Run The Quarter-Mile in 8.9 Seconds!
It’s safe to say that we are spoiled for horsepower. About 20 years ago 500 horsepower was considered a very respectable figure for a supercar. Nowadays, people laugh at the notion of a 500-horsepower car that has any supercar claims. This is why supercars with over 700 horsepower have become a rather common sight. This also means that we get some pretty mental stuff on four wheels, like this McLaren 765 LT.
The Hybrid Ferrari, AKA The Ferrari 486, Could Deliver 700 Horsepower!
Rumors abound surrounding Ferrari’s new hybrid offering, codenamed the F171. The latest comes by way of Car Magazine, which claims through an unconfirmed report that the new V-6-powered hybrid Ferrari will have a combined output approaching 700 horsepower, including 110 horsepower coming from the electric motor. The new hybrid supercar is also rumored to be called the Ferrari 486.
It Seems That Mercedes Is Afraid the EQC EV Can’t Compete With Tesla
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz EQC launch date in the U.S. has been pushed back yet again after what the German automaker described as a “comprehensive review of market developments.” The all-electric SUV was originally scheduled to arrive in the U.S. in early 2020, but Mercedes pushed back deliveries of the model by a year to early 2021. Now, it looks like we’re not going to see the EQC anytime soon.
