PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia Is the Best-Looking Debut at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, But Is It Too Little Too Late?

First introduced way back in 2013, the 4C was the first mass-produced Alfa Romeo vehicle for the North American market in the 21st century. And what a comeback – this thing ticks all the boxes when it comes to driving nirvana. Made from carbon fiber and aluminum, the 4C is lightweight, while the exterior dimensions are compact, which combine with the mid-engine drivetrain package to make for some seriously impressive driving dynamics. We love it, but in the six years since its debut, not much has changed, and sales have taken a hit. Now, Alfa is offering a special edition at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show that’s leaving us wondering – is it too little too late?

PostHeaderIcon Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Sold Out in Just Four Hours

The iconic Mazda MX-5 Miata turns 30 in 2019 and the Japanese automaker celebrates the achievement with a 30th Anniversary model at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. The roadster fitted with a few extra features went on sale during the show and all 500 units were sold out after only four hours!

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia is a final attempt from Alfa to stay relevant

Alfa Romeo showed up at the Chicago Auto Show with the 4C Spider Italia Edition. It’s the same 4C Alfa’s been selling in the U.S. for almost half a decade already, but the novelty is you can now have it in this nice Misano Blue Metallic paint job if you pay $5,000 more on top of the $1,595 destination tax.

The Alfa Romeo 4C was the second car Alfa Romeo brought Stateside after selling almost 100 of its wonderful 8C sports car in both coupe and roadster guise. The 4C is a much more compact version but, in true Alfa tradition, it looks really well and it drives well too. The issue is that the Italians haven’t really been all that interested in trying to refresh the car and, now, the 4C is a pretty but overpriced car that desperately needs a replacement worth of sharing the garage with the Stelvio Quadrifoglio and the Giulia Quadrifoglio.

PostHeaderIcon The 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition Is One of the Best Excuses to Celebrate At the 2019 Chicago Auto Show

As we would expect from any contemporary auto show, the 2019 Chicago Auto Show is popping at the seams with new models offered as a “celebration” of some accomplishment or milestone. However, out of all these limited production runs and special editions, we think the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition is one of the best reasons to really celebrate. This two-door sports machine is an outlier in the market, looking a lot like a greatest hits album for the MX-5 nameplate. Here’s why we’re digging it.

PostHeaderIcon The Mazda MX-5 Celebrates its 30th Birthday at Chicago Auto Show with a Limited Edition model

The Mazda MX-5 Miata has been in the automotive industry for three decades now and the automaker decided to celebrate the occasion with the launch of the 30th Anniversary Edition of the MX-5 at the Chicago Auto Show. What makes it all the more special is that the original MX-5 also made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show back in 1989! The 30th Anniversary Edition will be limited to a production of just 3,000 copies.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Chicago Auto Show – Everything You Need To Know

The Windy City looks like it’s starting to warm up a little bit now that the polar vortex has passed, and it’s good timing, because the 2019 Chicago Auto Show is bringing the heat with a full list of debuts. Per tradition, CAS will once again occupy the McCormick Place convention center with a variety of new trucks, crossovers, luxury rides, and muscle cars, and Top Speed will be on the scene to bring you all the big news as it happens.

Framed as the “largest” and “longest-running” auto show in the U.S., the Chicago Auto Show has been going strong since 1901, and this year, it will once again offer up roughly 1,000 vehicles for our collective admiration. We’ve listed the big names slated to show right here in this in-depth guide, plus we included all the info you need to know if you want to attend the show yourself.

PostHeaderIcon 8 Crazy Diesel Swaps in Unexpected Cars

Diesels have received an increasingly bad rep over the past decade. They’ve been shunned by some as too dirty to run, a view strengthened by all the climate change advocates throwing their arms in the air announcing our impending mass extinction by global warming. However, there are those (rare) people who still appreciate the good old compression-ignition engine and who will go to great lengths to retrofit a car they like with an oil burner to satisfy themselves.

On my quest to find the craziest diesel swaps that the internet has to offer, I’ve assembled this list of ten examples that are not only cool but also support the idea that a diesel swap is a valid swap… at least in my mind. Keep in mind that some of the swaps on the list are easier to achieve than others as they require an extensive reengineering of the vehicle.

In some cases, the (often bigger) new engine won’t fit where it intended to, and it either gets moved to the middle of the car or serious hacking of the engine bay and firewall need to take place. But once the work on one of these is done, it will not only be super fast (if you use a turbocharged diesel) but also frugal. And, if you tune it well (which you should), it won’t spew out that much sooty black smoke out the back (or the hood, side, or wherever you feel like re-routing the exhaust to).

PostHeaderIcon Watch Chris Harris Get Excited As He Looks Over a Bunch of Mint Condition Classics from the Past 40 Years

There aren’t many car presenters out there that can Chris Harris’ reputation, but he built it on the fact that he genuinely likes cars and through the way he conveys his thoughts. I mean there aren’t many better videos for car enthusiasts than this one that he did for Top Gear where he travels to a warehouse packed with mint condition classics.

PostHeaderIcon McLaren 570GT Cabbeen Collection

McLaren Special Operations has revealed the sixth and final Cabbeen Collection McLaren 570GT during the annual Lunar New Year celebration held in Beverly Hills. The Cabbeen-commissioned 570GT debuted at last year’s Beijing Auto Show in April, and only five other examples exist. This special McLaren features the same hand-painted dragon outside and embroidered dragon inside that’s seen on the other five Cabbeen models built by MSO. This model has a unique VIN number, and you can actually buy it through McLaren of Beverly Hills

PostHeaderIcon Join the AMR Drivers’ Club and Aston Martin Will Teach You How to Really Drive Your Sports Car

Aston Martin wants its clients to not baby their cars anymore and, instead, head to the track and hone their skills to extract everything out of their sports cars. That’s why the British automaker launched the AMR Drivers’ Club that will tour some of Europe’s top tracks and teach Aston owners how to drive better. The program could, potentially, help some of you become legitimate race car drivers.

The program offers a number of levels divided into three areas: AMR Experience, AMR Academy, and AMR GT Academy. From learning how to drive your own car as fast as you can, to tasting other Aston-Martin products, including the 2019 Vantage GT4, everything is possible through this program – if you can afford it. Then again, if you can afford to own an Aston-Martin, you can probably afford to track it too.

PostHeaderIcon This Rendering From Prior Design Represents the Future of Supra Tuning

The 2020 Toyota Supra was long overdue and, as Akio Toyoda himself admitted, was one of the worst kept secrets in the automotive industry. It is, then, no wonder that as soon as the car was finally unveiled, tuning companies started working on body kits. One of these companies includes Prior Design who presented some renders of an upcoming body kit for the 2020 Toyota Supra.

Remember us talking about how the fifth-generation Supra has way too many fake vents Prior Design enlarged some of them and made others functional while also adding some Rocket Bunny-style flared arches and an elegant wing atop the ducktail in the back. It may not be the best tuning kit you’ll ever see for the Z4’s brother, but it sure is one of the first to emerge.

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 High-Performance SUVs are Becoming a Trend as Hyundai Preps a Tucson N for 2021

Gone are the days when SUVs were just spacious vehicles with a basic engine that just about did its job. SUVs are now replacing sedans in almost all the aspects. The big vehicles are now refined, have better on-road driving manners, and come loaded with features and equipment. A lot of automakers have also been getting into performance SUVs lately. The latest entrant to that niche is Hyundai with its upcoming Tucson N. The Tucson N will hit the roads in about two years and will come on the back of 340 ponies.

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 Car Girl of the Week: Woman.Driven

Say hello our featured car girl of the week – Woman.Driven! Her real name is Doris, and long story short, she she can do a whole lot more than just look sexy in front of some high-spec machinery. No sir, Woman.Driven isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty in the garage, and when the wrenches are down, she’s more than eager to climb behind the wheel and get it done on the track.

As of this writing, Woman.Driven has amassed an impressive 14,200 followers on Instagram and nearly 73,000 subscribers on YouTube.

Not only is she gorgeous, but there’s no doubt she’s got the performance bug in a big way. Her main ride is a 2018 Shelby GT350, which in stock form lays down 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque thanks to its 5.2-liter V-8. However, as evidenced by Woman.Driven’s numerous car modification videos, “stock” just isn’t gonna cut it.

Other highlight rides in this lady’s garage include a 2017 Nissan GT-R, a 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, a 2015 BMW M4, a 2018 Camaro ZL1, and a 2018 Ford Raptor. Woman.Driven is a true enthusiast – if it’s fast and runs on four wheels, it’s game on!

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 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.
