PostHeaderIcon Audi R8

Introduced in 2015, the second-generation Audi R8 was facelifted for the 2019 model year. The mid-cycle upgrade arrived rather soon, suggesting that the supercar might be redesigned in three years or so. The facelift brought a sportier exterior, a mildly altered interior, and important changes under the hood. Likewise, the R8 V10 Plus model was renamed the V10 Performance.

Sharing 50 percent of components with the R8 LMS GT3 race car shown at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, the revised R8 looks more aggressive than ever. It’s also significantly more powerful than before, with up to 30 horsepower added to the 5.2-liter V-10 engine. It’s also the first R8 to surpass 200 mph in every trim, including Spyder models. Although it was originally believed that Audi might add a new GT model to the lineup, the sportier car spotted testing in Europe turned out to be just the regular facelift. Let’s find out more about all of that in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Preps For Xmas With Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Sleigh

With Christmas around the corner, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is the latest car to get a sleigh makeover. Introduced as part of Dodge’s “Big Finish” campaign, the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Sleigh stars in a new commercial called “Upgrade” alongside retired WWE wrestler Bill Goldberg, who happens to play a pretty jacked-up Santa Claus. With muscles coming out of his ears, Santa decides to keep with the profile this holiday season by commissioning his elves to make improvements to his current sleigh. The result, as you can see, is a sleigh that’s going to make a lot of pony car enthusiasts wish they had the means to do the same thing.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar Launches One-Make Race Series For “Mature” Drivers

Are you of the opinion that there’s entirely too much young blood in motorsport? Are you tired of seeing 16-year-olds drive with audacious precision, incredible consistency and pace and humiliate the old and experienced? Well, now, the old have a place of their own: the Jaguar Series Elite for drivers over 50 years of age.

Jaguar is barely getting the I-Pace eTrophy series off the ground, a series that’s supposed to give Formula E race-goers a little more bang for their buck, and now they’re looking to expand their footprint in motorsport with a new project: the Series Elite. It’s supposed to be a series centered around wealthy gentleman drivers who are at least 50 years old and want to bang door handles in Jaguar’s XE SV Project 8.

Jaguar expects to have a grid of 20 “mature drivers”, as they put it, by the time the series kicks off next May. The 20 XE SV Project 8s the 20 well-to-be adrenaline junkies will be lightly modified for track use but Jaguar stated that they can be turned back to the road legal specification quite quickly.

PostHeaderIcon Vauxhall Plans to Capitalize on the VXR Badge in the Future

Vauxhall’s performance sub-brand, VXR, may eventually come out of solitude in the future. Although the company has been focusing on the GSi badge lately, the VXR hasn’t been killed off. Now that almost all automakers are making performance-oriented electric cars, Vauxhall could go ahead and slap its cars with the VXR badge.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Launches “Track Mode,” Turns Model 3 Into Drift Machine

One of the coolest advantages of electric powertrains over internal combustion engines is that power and torque are available instantly. And this is one of the reasons why the Tesla Model S is the quickest production car with a 0-to-60 benchmark of only 2.5 seconds. Now, Tesla wants to put the Model 3’s instant torque to good use on the race track through a new driving mode. It’s called Track Mode and turns the compact sedan into a drift machine.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 BMW Z4 M Coupe Could Look Like This

BMW recently lifted the veil off its all-new 2019 Z4 roadster, the sixth-generation Z model (or third-gen Z4) and the most visually striking one yet. However, unlike with the first-gen Z4, this one will get neither a hardtop coupe version nor a hot Z4 M variant.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Reveals New Details On M8, Sets Market Release for 2019

PostHeaderIcon Mid-Engined Chevrolet Corvette C8 Could Cost $170,000

Arguably the hottest and most discussed car to be unveiled in 2019, the Chevy Corvette C8 remains a mystery, with very little official information to run by as of November. Thankfully, the rumor has provided us some data in recent months and now it’s back with pricing information, placing the mid-engined sports car at $169,900 before options.

PostHeaderIcon WTF? Strange, Crazy, Amazing, and Downright Stupid Things at SEMA 2018

You can pretty much see anything and everything automotive related at the SEMA show. From pure-bred muscle cars, wild exotics, monster trucks, and full-on race cars. SEMA has something for everyone to love. On the other side of that spectrum, there is a lot that may not be to your taste. From the crazy awesome to the crazy clueless, here you can find a bit of each.

PostHeaderIcon Check Out This Hot New Duke Dynamics Bodykit for the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is one of the craziest Prancing Horses of recent years and most of that craziness is derived from its 6.3-liter V12 engine which makes 730 horsepower and is able to send it to 100 km/h or 62 mph in 3.1 seconds. But for some, its mad performance isn’t done justice by the car’s styling. so they use kits like this one by Vancouver, Canada-based Duke Dynamics, in order to help their F12 achieve the look they think it deserves.

PostHeaderIcon Check Out All the Awesomeness We Found At SEMA 2018 With This Mega Picture Gallery

One hundred forty thousand people descend upon the Las Vegas convention center for the largest aftermarket automotive trade show in the world. Welcome to SEMA 2018, where many of the top automotive aftermarket manufacturers, builders, and shops come together to learn, shop, and show off the best products and some of the best custom rides in the game. I overheard one SEMA organizer saying that if you were to walk up and down every aisle in every pavilion you would walk almost 54 miles and I believe it! Sadly, most of SEMA is very boring and very repetitive (I mean seriously, how many booths about tires does one show need?) but, there are always those automotive gems to look at and once in a while a new product that just makes you stop and say “wow.” So, here are a few of those cars that made me stop and actually take a look.

PostHeaderIcon New Images of the Aston Martin Valkyrie’s Interior Just Cast Shade All over the 2019 McLaren Speedtail

The Valkyrie is closer and closer to finally being released into the wild. But, until it’s ready to roam freely, Aston Martin decided to make the waiting that much harder by releasing a new batch of images, one of which shows the production version interior.

Did you ever think you’ll see a two-tone Valkyrie rolling on gorgeous gunmetal-gray multi-spoke wheels? Well, apparently, a white-to-blue color scheme was requested by someone, and Aston Martin was kind enough to release three images of the car in this specification. One of them showcases the Valkyrie’s profile; another is a pigeon-eye view, while the third shot is of the cockpit.

PostHeaderIcon The McLaren Speedtail Sets a New Company Standard that Will Be Hard to Beat

McLaren’s highly anticipated “Hyper-GT,” the Speedtail, was unveiled today with a set of new benchmarks for the British company. The teardrop-shaped supercar is not only the most powerful but also the fastest McLaren ever built.

PostHeaderIcon Burn of $226 in About 8 Minutes While You Ride Shotgun Around the Nurburgring in the Jaguar XE SV Project 8

We’ve all seen videos of fast cars burning rubber on the Nürburgring. Have you ever imagined being in one of those record-setting cars? If you answered yes, well, you can finally do it courtesy of Jaguar. Starting in mid-November, Jaguar will add the XE SV Project 8, equipped with the Track Pack, to its Jaguar Race Taxi fleet.
If you’re interested, a professional driver will whip you around in the XE SV Project 8 for $226 per lap.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota Supra GR

There are images aplenty of the new Supra, but these days, Toyota’s been testing a race-prepped version of their new sports car at the Nordschleife which we think might be the mule for the upcoming sportier Supra.

With this occasion, we got a chance to get a little closer to the Supra, and we like what we see. For example, we got an eyeful of the interior, with the center stack lacking any sort of camouflage with the big infotainment screen on top of the central attraction. It all seems to be, apart from the racing wheel, pretty much stock, so there’s not much guesswork left to do about how the interior will look, given that some renderings of the interior and exterior were also leaked this week.

PostHeaderIcon Holden Bathurst Time Attack Concept

Just when you thought nothing truly exciting could come out in 2018 with the Holden logo on the hood, here’s the Bathurst Time Attack Concept. It was developed as a futuristic race car to mark the 50th anniversary of the company’s first major win at Bathurst.

The R&D department at Holden, in Australia, set about proving that Holden isn’t just a badge GM slaps on the Buick Regal. So they came up with a groundbreaking concept that uses fans that direct airflow in order to improve downforce through each and every corner the car tackles. It’s low, wide, electric and it isn’t real. It’s similar to a Gran Turismo concept car without being one. But we wish they’d make it.

I mean, look at it. Check the tunnels that run on either side of the monocoque, the ginormous diffuser at the back, the rear wing, everything looking like it came from 2040. And it does, in a way, because all the tech that the AVD group crammed in it isn’t all here – yet.

PostHeaderIcon Drag Race Battle – Ferrari 812 Superfast Versus Tesla Model X P100D

On paper, an SUV should have no business competing against a supercar in a drag race. But the cars in question, a Ferrari 812 Superfast and a Tesla Model X P100D, aren’t exactly too far apart in the performance category. One produces 588 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque, while the other has 790 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque on tap. Line them side-by-side on a drag strip and the question of who wins isn’t as ridiculous as it sounds. In the end, such a race took place at the Drag Times home track of Palm Beach International Raceway. As for which car won? Watch the video and find out.

PostHeaderIcon The Hoonigans Go Deep With Cleetus McFarland’s Insane ’Vette Kart: Video

How about stripping a Chevrolet Corvette down, strapping in a 7.0-liter LS, and going after some world records for manual Corvettes? Sounds like an insane project to you? It sure didn’t sound too daunting to Cleetus McFarland, the creator of “Leroy The Savage.”

“Leroy The Savage” is, at its core, a Chevrolet Corvette C5 that was stripped of its bodywork and was able to run the quarter mile in 11 seconds with no other modifications. Then came an LSA supercharger and other mods that brought the time down to 9 seconds. McFarland then smelled blood and reckoned his creation could go after some records on the dragstrip and one thing led to another.
