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 […]

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 […]

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.

2019 Lexus ES

Redesigned 2019 Lexus ES Gets Bigger and Aims to Be Sportier

The Lexus ES has long been a favorite of CR members, and its automaker is laying on features, functionality, and sporty character to pump up its appeal to drivers.

2019 Corvette ZR1

The 755 Horsepower Corvette ZR1 Will Warp Your Perception of Speed

I knew it was going to be scary; I really did. I have a reasonable enough amount of track time in the already absurd, 650-horsepower Corvette Z06, that I knew, with reasonable certainty, that whatever the 2018 Corvette ZR1 could do around Road Atlanta, my driving ability would not be enough to keep up. The […]
