PostHeaderIcon Toyota’s Pinball-Themed Ad for the Supra is A Nice Symmetry to How the Sports Car Has Been Received

The all-new Toyota Supra took center stage at Super Bowl LIII as the star of its own commercial. The 60-second ad, titled “Wizard,” features the Supra driving around what Toyota describes as a life-sized pinball machine as The Who’s “Pinball Wizard” blares in the background. Unlike the snoozefest that was the Super Bowl, the ad presented the Supra in a new and exciting light. The car can flat-out move, which is fitting considering that it probably dodged more obstacles than the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams players did in the first half of the game. More than that, the commercial also provided a nice symmetry on the mixed public reaction towards the new Supra. If for nothing else, Toyota’s returning sports car proves that it can dodge criticism as deftly as Julian Edelman dodges the Rams defenders.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Islero

The Islero was the first Lamborghini with hidden pop-up headlights and the first designed by Mario Marazzi. Its appearance seemed somewhat dull even next to the Espada, not to mention the Miura. The 400 GT version was quickly followed by the improved 400 GTS that soldiered on until 1970 when the Islero was replaced by the Jarama.

Lamborghini was truly prolific in its first few years as an automaker. Ferruccio Lamborghini’s men put the 350 GT into production in 1964 and then, only two years later, the bigger, more powerful 400 GT arrived. At the same time, the stunning Gandini-penned Miura dropped and, for 1968, Lamborghini readied up two new cars: the Islero which replaced the 400 GT and an even bigger grand tourer, the Espada. Lamborghini’s wave didn’t last much longer, though, and, by the mid-’70s, the company was in financial hot water.

The Islero name comes from a Miura-breed bull that killed the famous matador Manuel Rodriquez in August of 1947.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Jaguar F-Type Checkered Flag Limited Edition Coupe

There’s no denying that the Jaguar F-Type is one hell of a sports coupe, but Checkered Flag Limited Edition model comes to celebrate Jaguars 70th anniversary, and it does so in elegant fashion. Based atop the R-Dynamic trim, Jaguar decked it out even further by throwing in a black roof, tons of badging, and an exclusive pair of 20-inch wheels that look, well, amazing. Three body colors are available, and the options don’t stop there. You can actually choose between the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or the 3.0-liter V-6. That means you can have either 296 ponies screaming under the hood or 380 ponies. Those translate to a 5.4-second sprint to 60 mph or a 4.9-second sprint to the same benchmark, respectively. The larger engine will also get you to a heart-palpitating 171 mph. With all of this in mind, we thought we’d help honor Jag’s 70th anniversary by making this limited edition our wallpaper of the day. Check out our favorite shot of this limited-edition beaut or slide on down to the gallery for more great options.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Challenger

Dodge reintroduced the Challenger nameplate in 2008 with a brand-new third generation. Now, the tire-roasting lead sled is heading for an update for the 2019 model year, and it’s poised to receive new exterior colors inspired by Dodge’s racing history, including a searing-shade of green called Sublime. What’s more, the Challenger will get additional standard go-fast equipment to add real performance to the visual theatrics.

Update 02/14/2019: We’ve updated this review with video and images of the 2019 Dodge Challenger taken at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. Check them out in the gallery at the bottom of this page!

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 McLaren 600LT Spider

McLaren kind of caught us off-guard with the introduction of the 600LT Spider – the 2nd long-tail spider of the ultimate series lineup. In true McLaren fashion, it comes with a 3.8-liter V-8 that’s good for 592 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. Even better yet, McLaren managed to keep the usual weight gain associated with drop-top models under control as the 600LT Spider tips the scales at just 110 pounds more than the standard 600LT – that means it’s just 0.2-seconds slower than the coupe it’s based on. It also weighs some 220.5 pounds less than the McLaren 570S Spider – you know, just for the record. Anyway, the 60-mph sprint takes just 2.8 seconds, and the 124-mph sprint takes just 8.4 seconds. Put the hammer down, and you’ll bounce off the rev-limiter in high gear somewhere between 196 and 201 mph. With all of this said, we’re just taken back by the 600LT Spider’s sleek body design, proper proportions, and downright elegance. So, we’ve decided to feature it as our wallpaper of the day. We’ve picked out our favorite, but we’ve also added a gallery below for you to choose from if you want something different. Download one or download them all – they are free, and the choice is yours. Enjoy!

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Toyota Supra vs 2019 Porsche 718 Cayman

The 2020 Toyota Supra made its highly anticipated debut at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show. While some were anxious to meet the BMW-based coupe, most die-hard enthusiasts weren’t pleased that the successor to the iconic fourth-gen Supra doesn’t have pure Japanese engineering. Now that all the commotion is over, it’s time to see how the Supra compares to its rivals. Now that the coupe is smaller, it’s well-suited to take on the Porsche 718 Cayman. Let’s find out if it stands a chance.

PostHeaderIcon Turns out the all-new Subaru BRZ / Toyota GT86 is, in fact, on its way

Recent rumors suggested that Toyota and Subaru were going to pull the plug on the GT86/BRZ models as early as next year, but according to new information, that may not be the case. It was believed that the sporty coupe was no longer relevant given that the base version of the new Supra makes around as much horsepower and it’s about the same size too.

PostHeaderIcon Audi’s Cashew Commercial for the 2019 Super Bowl Gives Us a Look at the E-Tron GT

Super Bowl LIII is kicking off this weekend, and with it a long list of fresh commercials. Audi’s getting in on the action with a commercial it’s calling “Cashew,” featuring the German automaker’s latest and greatest all-electric concept car.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Silhouette

Lamborghini launched the Silhouette in 1976 as an attempt to appease customers that didn’t buy the Urraco, the company’s first V-8 model, with a car that featured the same underpinnings but a more modern styling in tune with the Countach. Sadly for Lamborghini, it didn’t work out, but Lamborghini still had the Jalpa up its sleeve.

The Silhouette was a more angular-looking sports car, in tone with the Countach. It had square, flared wheel arches, an aggressive nose, and a sleek rear section with two black air vents covering the area aft of the B-pillar. The wheels were also new and they would go on to become a sort of a staple on Lamborghini models. The Silhouette was also one of the few to not be named after a fighting bull or a breed of bulls and the first from Sant’Agata Bolognese to feature a removable targa top.

The Silhouette, in keeping with the budget sportscar ethos pushed forward by Ferruccio when conceiving the Urraco, was never meant to be an out-and-out performer. As such, with a 3.0-liter V-8 behind the seats, the power output was advertised at a docile 266 horsepower – 40 less than a modern-day Seat Leon Cupra R hot hatch- with a resulting top speed of 162 mph or 12 mph less than a de-restricted Audi RS3 hot hatch that you can buy in 2018.

PostHeaderIcon 12 Best Handling Cars in America Under $100,000

Toyota 86 - $26,255

The stereotypical view about driving in the U.S. (propagated by people who’ve never actually been Stateside) is that it’s mostly wide, straight roads that make huge pickups seem small and where people drive their cliché muscle cars mostly straight and occasionally turning to the left. But America has innumerable awesome driving roads scattered across its vast territory, breathtaking roads with great tarmac and scenery, and there are plenty of people in the U.S. who prefer a good handling car over a big, powerful bruiser that resents corners.

This listicle is for them as it tries to concentrate the 12 best handling performance cars that you can buy for under $100,000 (some of which falling well under that figure). You may also be surprised to note that two of the cars in the list below are by all definitions actual muscle cars, yet in their current incarnation they have a lot of sports car DNA and they thoroughly deserve their place on this list.

When first doing research for this list I thought it was going to be tricky to get ten cars that fit the bill without resorting to filling the list with hot hatches. But thankfully, the $100,000 cap proved sufficient to include plenty of cars that may be quite diverse, yet they’re all known for their excellent handling. The fact that some of them are also really fast in a straight line and still come within budget is a bonus.

PostHeaderIcon Lexus LC 500 Inspiration Series

The Lexus LC 500 is the Japanese brand’s latest and greatest grand tourer halo car, offered as a sharp, muscle-bound sports machine that acts as the spiritual successor to the high-tech Lexus LFA. First rolling off the production line in March of 2017, the Lexus is keeping the LC 500 fresh with a new Inspiration Series version, blessing the two-door with unique aesthetic treatments inside and out, highlighted by a bright yellow color scheme.

Update 02/11/2019: We’ve updated this review with fresh images of the 2019 Lexus LC500 Inspiration during our visit to the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. Check them out in the gallery at the bottom of the page!

PostHeaderIcon BMW i8 – Driven

If you have ever wondered what the sports car of the future will look like, a great place to look is at your BMW dealership.
The BMW i8 is how BMW sees it, and if that is the case, the future may be brighter than we thought.
If we had to guess what the sports car of the future would be, we can be almost certain that it will be electric or have at least hybrid power. It would also be made of high-tech materials and be futuristic looking — the i8 checks all those boxes.

PostHeaderIcon Rumors Say the Next-Gen Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 Are Cancelled, But Does That Open the Door for a New Toyota MR2?

These days, Toyota is in complete command of the Japanese sports coupe spotlight thanks to the debut of the new 2020 Toyota Supra. Rumor has it the brand might be looking to lock that position down with a new MR2 sometime in the near future, but in order to do so, the Toyota 86 might have to bite the dust.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar F-TYPE Checkered Flag Limited Edition Coupe

Jaguar is rolling out the special-edition goods with the arrival of the F-TYPE Chequered Flag Limited Edition. Based on the coupé and convertible versions of the Jaguar F-TYPE R-Dynamic trim, the Chequered Flag Limited Edition is a celebration of the Big Cat’s history and lineage of sports cars that earnestly began with the arrival of the XK 120 back in 1948. In keeping with a number of past Jaguar F-TYPE special editions, the Chequered Flag Limited Edition mostly comes with exclusive cosmetic touches inside and out. It features a black roof, a new set of exclusive wheels, and enough badges to drive home the point that this is an exclusive 380-horsepower kitty that pays homage to its heritage. The Jaguar F-TYPE Chequered Flag Edition is available in the U.S. market at a starting price of $71,900.

PostHeaderIcon 13 Cars with 700+ Horsepower You Can Buy Today

When somebody mentioned a 700+ horsepower, say, ten years ago, you would have thought about the handful of vehicles that come close to that value in thousands and the few that surpassed it. Nowadays, though, it seems like every other sporty wagon, car, or SUV is getting more powerful by the year, and 700 horsepower is starting to become more common than ever.

If you set your goal of buying a 700+ horsepower vehicle today, then the list of vehicles you may end up having to pick from could look a lot like this – an eclectic mix of different styles of cars, with wildly varying price tags, styles, engine displacement, and levels of tech. It will most likely boil down to the price of the vehicle, in most cases anyway, but rest assured that some of the vehicles on the list are genuinely attainable and, even if most aren’t, the sheer variety of choice you have today is actually quite impressive.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE

Unveiled for the 2017 model year, the sixth-generation Camaro ZL1 is by far the most impressive Camaro with forced-induction built to date. Powered by the the same LT4 engine introduced with the Corvette Z06, the latest ZL1 packs 650 horsepower, looks incredibly menacing, and costs a little more than $60,000, an amazing sticker given the performance. But, as incredible as it may sound, Chevrolet just managed to the make ZL1 even better by giving it the 1LE upgrade.

Previously available on the SS model, the 1LE package was made available for the V-6 version too for the sixth-generation Camaro. Now, Chevy devised a similar package for the ZL1 and claims that the supercharged 1LE is the most track-capable Camaro ever, meaning it should outgun the bonkers (and now discontinued) Z/28 too. These claims are backed by racing-based suspension and aero technologies, as well as exclusive Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, and a range of weight-saving measure. How powerful and fast is it? How much it cost? How does it compare to the Shelby GT350 and the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat? Read my review below to get all the answers.

Update 01/29/2019: Chevy has updated the Camaro ZL1 1LE for 2019. Check out the drivetrain section below for the full scoop.

PostHeaderIcon The new Lotus Hypercar will be Built in Partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering

Strategic alliance is the best way to go forward these days. We recently heard about Ford and Volkswagen collaborating, and this time, it is Lotus and Williams Advanced Engineering. The two companies will work hand-in-hand to share “research and development into advanced propulsion technologies.” The newly-wed companies have not provided any details on their forthcoming projects yet, but rumors suggest they could be working on the upcoming Lotus all-electric hypercar.

PostHeaderIcon 10 Exciting Cars That Will Cost You As Much as the 2020 Toyota Supra

The fifth generation Supra A90 is no longer aspiring to be a Porsche 911 slayer, but, given its price, you can pit it against some pretty brisk, fun-to-drive cars. Toyota designed the latest Supra to be fun to drive, its proving ground being the Nurburgring. Company CEO Akio Toyoda was heavily involved in the development process of the A90. He said that he gauged the experience of driving the new Supra, which is more compact than ever before, in comparison to the old model he used to drive around the ’Green Hell’ to learn the track.

The production version hasn’t been put to the test yet, but journalists were allowed to take turns driving some development prototypes around the Jarama track last year. Car & Driver wrote that “there is a smoothness to the Supra that we haven’t felt in a BMW in years,” and we know that it will joyfully slide, but what other cars you can look for if you’ve only got Supra money in your pocket? Well, We’ve decided to explore the diverse range of models that you could go for with that “Supra” money you’re hanging on to.

PostHeaderIcon Will the Hybrid Mustang Feature a V-8 Paired with an Electric Motor?

The times, they are a’changing, and that’s definitely the case for the Ford Mustang. The latest news and rumors point to what could be an upcoming hybrid powerplant for the iconic muscle car, as well as an electrified future for the Blue Oval as a whole.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Manages to Ban Mecum from Selling the 2017 Ford GT Without Permission

While it’s certainly the case that we’re living in a special time with regards to enthusiast vehicles, the flip side is a tangle of profit-seeking and litigious backlash, as Mecum Auctions found out after it sold a 2017 Ford GT in Indianapolis.
