Drag Race: Kia Stinger GT Vs Volkswagen Arteon R Shooting Brake

Can the more powerful RWD Kia Stinger GT beat the lighter AWD Volkswagen Arteon R Shooting Brake in a drag race?

It’s another drag race from our UK colleagues from Carwow and this time, the Kia Stinger GT goes up against the Volkswagen Arteon R Shooting Brake. Although both cars compete in the same segment, they are propelled by very different drivetrains. Will more power and torque prevail over less weight, all-wheel drive, and a DSG gearbox?

The Audi R8 Bloodline Carries On - Maybe Even As An EV

The Audi R8 Bloodline Carries On - Maybe Even As An EV

The future of Audi R8 is uncertain, but reports suggest it may become a hybrid or even fully electric by 2023

With a few exceptions, Audi is a brand that makes luxury cars that, for the most part, feature a rather unremarkable design. While that changed in the last few years, one model that has always been exciting is the Audi R8. Since its debut, in 2006, the mid-engine model hasn’t experienced any radical changes. However a few months ago, Hildegard Wortmann – Audi’s global chief of sales and marketing – stated that the Audi R8 “is an icon of the past, not necessarily the future”. This points to the R8 nearing the end of its lifespan in order to make room for something new.

This 1979 Custom Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" Is The Culmination of 1970s Excess

The 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" is a 600+ horsepower one-off that could be yours

The first automobile was invented in 1886 and since then many great cars have emerged. But even nearly 140 years after the automobile’s invention, there are very few cars that have a cult following as zealous as that of the Porsche 911. This is especially true for the air-cooled models, which are all-time classics. If we combine the significance of an air-cooled 911 with the cocaine-snorting excess of the 1970s, we can see how a one-off 1979, guards red, modified Porsche 911 Turbo can be listed for $599,000 by a Florida dealership.

Is This 2JZ-Swapped Dodge Charger The Ultimate Act Of Sacrilege?

Is This 2JZ-Swapped Dodge Charger The Ultimate Act Of Sacrilege?

Mike Finnegan from Roadkill has put a 2JZ GTE in a 1968 Dodge Charger. It’s one of the most outrageous builds ever done

We are all familiar with the tuning potential of the 2JZ engine, which makes it one of the more popular engine swaps. That said, there are certain boundaries one should not be crossing. This is exactly what Mike Finnegan, from Finnegan’s Garage YouTube channel, did, as he took the rustiest 1968 Dodge Charger and put a 2JZ GTE engine in it. While it’s up for debate whether that’s worse than putting an LS into it (at least it’s a V-8) some MOPAR fans are sure to blow a fuse or two over Finnegan’s build.

Cadillac XP-840 Eldorado Fastback Was Way Ahead Of Its Time

The Cadillac XP-840 looks like something that Darth Vader would have driven in the 1960s

When you think of American luxury cars, you probably think of Cadillac. Since its inception, in 1902, by founders William Murphy, Lemuel Bowen, and Henry M. Leland, the brand has been synonymous with lavishing luxury and style. Moreover, on a few occasions, Cadillac designers played with the idea of radical designs and gigantic (even by American standards) engines. Thus cars like the XP-840 Eldorado Fastback spawned.
