The car itself will be sold in limited numbers for a price of around £1.5 million before taxes, but that’s not the whole story.

Thanks to Electric Vehicles, Even Volkswagen Can Be A Major Performance Brand

Thanks to Electric Vehicles, Even Volkswagen Can Be A Major Performance Brand

The beauty of electric vehicles is, arguably, that harnessing pure performance is really easy

In case you haven’t noticed, outside of a few entry-level cars like the Hyundai Kona EV and Chevy Bolt, for example, electric cars are pretty fast. And the cost to make even an entry-level EV fast isn’t all that high. EVs are opening the door for automakers to expand their performance lineups exponentially, and Volkswagen will be one of the first as the GTX badge be slapped onto an entire fleet of high-performance EVs. So, which model will we see next?

The Monaco Historique Is a Snapshot Into Racing’s Heydays

The 2021 edition of the event saw some thrilling races and face-wincing shunts

The Monaco Historique, like the Le Mans Classic, is one of those rare transcendental events. It takes you back in time to what many argue was the ’Golden Age’ of motor racing. Over one weekend every couple or so years, some of the world’s most revered F1 and sports cars gather to once again race in anger. In 2021, the gang got back together for more battling on the streets of Monte-Carlo and it all got a little bit too hot, multi-million-dollar metal being bent in the process.

2023 BMW M2 G87 – We Have Some Good News and Some Bad News

2023 BMW M2 G87 – We Have Some Good News and Some Bad News

A production gap is inevitable, but there is some good news about the G87 2023 BMW M2

Our first sighting of the next-gen 2 Series happened about a year ago, and as of August 2020, we learned that it would be offered with rear-wheel drive. This is a big plus considering that the 2 Series Active Tourer and the Gran Coupe are, in fact, front-wheel drive. As is always the case, you have to take the good with the bad, and even though the next-gen 2 Series Coupe is just about ready to hatch, the M2 is still in the incubator. How long do we have to wait? Let’s just say there’s going to be a generational gap.

This 1959 Chevy Apache Work Truck Restomod Includes A V-8 Engine That Makes Over 500 Horses

This 1959 Chevy Apache Work Truck Restomod Includes A V-8 Engine That Makes Over 500 Horses

It is based on a new platform, comes with an all-wheel-drive system, and features many other modern touches while looking old-school

American trucks from back in the day are some of the hottest restomod projects that aftermarket companies and individuals are taking up today. We generally see a lot of Ford F100s go through the restomod process, but here we have a truck that isn’t quite as popular. This is a 1959 Chevrolet Apache work truck that was part of the ‘Task Force’ series launched by the bowtie back in the 50s. The restomod includes putting the Apache on a new chassis, tossing in a V-8 engine, and fitting a four-wheel-drive system to make it a practical, daily driver work truck, as opposed to a pavement pickup like the yesteryear GMC Syclone.

Alfa Romeo's Next SUV Won't Come To The U.S. Because We Like Them Big

Alfa Romeo’s Next SUV Won’t Come To The U.S. Because We Like Them Big

If you want an Alfa Romeo Brennero, You’ll Probably Have To Move To Europe

Back in 2018, we learned that Alfa Romeo was going to expand its lineup with a Large SUV, and sure enough, we ended up with the Stelvio. It didn’t take long for the company to follow up with news that there would be a smaller SUV, and our first decent look was the Tonale concept. We’ve been waiting for that smaller SUV to be revealed in production guise, and while that hasn’t happened, there is word that an even smaller model is on the way. The only caveat here is that it’s going to be so small, Alfa Romeo won’t bother to bring it to the United States.

The Most Powerful BMW M Engine Wasn’t Found In a BMW - Until Now, That Is

BMW just took the gloves off. The M5 CS boasts the most powerful street engine BMW has ever made

Throughout its existence, BMW has made some pretty epic engines (and some not so epic), but their most powerful engine wasn’t actually put in a BMW car. It was the McLaren F1 that received BMW’s S70/2 6.1-liter V-12 back in the day, and for a long time, that was the brand’s most powerful engine. Until now, that is. Things have changed and we have the BMW M5 CS to thank for that.
