2019 Mercedes-Benz C 300

2019 Mercedes-Benz C 300 And AMG C 43 First Drive Review

Mercedes dreamt up the idea for the C-Class in 1974. It took eight years and hundreds of millions of dollars to translate that idea into the 1982 C 180. When introduced to the United States in 1984, Americans shunned it as “the poor man’s Mercedes,” and a journo at The Washington Post encapsulated the collective […]

2018 Porsche

This Center Seat Porsche Boxster Is More Than A Little Ridiculous

Just take a gander around the quiet, airy workshop bearing his name, Bisimoto Engineering, and you’ll see the oddest collection of modified cars you can imagine. In the middle, a Honda Odyssey, bagged to the floor with an intercooler jutting like a bad under bite from its front bumper. It makes 1,000 HP. Then there’s […]

The New BMW Z4

The New BMW Z4 Will Be Built By The Same Company That Makes The Mercedes G-Wagen

Back in 2016, we reported that Austrian contract manufacturer Magna Steyr would build BMW’s next Z4 and its upcoming Toyota platform-mate, the Supra. Yesterday, it was finally confirmed that Magna would build the BMW at its Graz, Austria plant, with production set to begin later this year. BMW outsourcing Z4 production to a contract manufacturer […]

New Dodge Viper

Sergio Marchionne: New Dodge Viper “Not In the Plan”

We want a new Viper. You want a new Viper. But will Dodge build a new Viper? Speaking to media today after Fiat Chrysler’s Capital Markets presentation, Sergio Marchionne didn’t totally close the door on a new iteration of Conner Ave’s supercar, but he didn’t give us much hope for one either. Both Automobile magazine’s […]

Civic Type R

Honda Just Made A Civic Type R Pickup Truck

Honda builds the fifth-generation Civic Type R in the UK, and the Swindon factory has a special projects division within its Product Engineering department. The team is responsible for Honda UK’s voluntary race team, Synchro Motorsport, and if you ever wondered what such a crew could do with a spare pre-production vehicle, here’s a solid […]

Hennessey Jeep

Hennessey’s 1000-HP Hellcat Jeep Trackhawk Does 0-60 in 2.7 Seconds

Hennessey just released a video of its HPE1000 Trackhawk trouncing the quarter-mile in 10.7 seconds at 132 mph. While those are some wildly impressive numbers, the real shocker is the car’s 0-60 time: Just 2.7 seconds. That’s right—this massive family-sized SUV can get to 60 mph quicker than a brand-new M5. The video can be […]

Chevrolet Corvette Engine

What Chevy Gains By Using A Pushrod Engine in The Corvette

The Chevrolet Corvette is the last true sports car to use a pushrod V8, and you might not think that’s a good thing. After all, overhead-cam engines have been the standard for decades at this point, so why would you use an old-school cam-in-block engine today? Especially in a Corvette, which has to compete with […]

2019 Porsche 911

2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

A flimsy air fence is the only thing separating my borrowed Porsche 911 GT3 RS from the baddest-ass racetrack on earth. The proximity is so tempting, you could hardly blame me for my smoldering fantasy to ditch the Nürburgring’s sterile Grand Prix circuit and hit the hallowed Nordschleife, unfettering all 512 horses on the forest-lined […]

BMW X7

BMW X7 Prototype First Drive Review

The long-awaited, much-discussed BMW X7 finally enters the home stretch. Barely four months away from the start of production, BMW brought six early X7 prototypes to the Spartanburg, South Carolina, plant that will build the new crossover, and invited a small group to sample the driving dynamics. Munich’s other full-sized SUV hopes to prove itself […]

Brabham Bt62 Supercar

Brabham Bt62 Supercar And Its Naturally Aspirated V8 Revealed

Brabham, a name long associated with racing, and intends to return to Le Mans, has just revealed its new supercar, the BT62. And from the looks of it, it’s pretty typical modern supercar design. There are all manner of cavities from scoops to vents, channels to grilles. It’s a very swoopy, curvy design that almost […]
