We’ve seen plenty of smoky burnouts, but these guys took things to another level by spinning the tires of a dragster in a pool of flaming gasoline. It’s a short clip, but like the old saying goes, “The flame that burns twice as bright burns half as long.”

The most powerful Super GT Aston available, the Vanquish S’ 6.0-liter V12 has been pushed to produce 591 hp thanks to a new intake system. Its suspension has been retuned for sportier handling, and new aerodynamics not only look the part, but help stick the car to the ground.
The latest Lambo not only drops its top, but sends 100% of its power to the rear wheels, allowing for drifting fun and making up for any weight gained by the convertible structure. Its V10 makes 580 hp, launching this bad boy to 62mph in 3.6s, with a top speed of 198 mph.
The new performance variant of Chevy’s mid-size pickup gains 2″ of suspension lift, steel rocker protectors, Multimatic shocks, 17×8 wheels with 31-inch off-road tires, and front and rear locking diffs. Comes with either a 308 hp V6, or a 181 hp diesel with 369 lb-ft. of torque.
Jaguar comes out swinging with its first EV. This sport crossover looks fantastic, has a spacious cabin that seats five, a 220 mi driving range, and can go 0-to-60 in about 4 sec thanks to two motors that produce 400hp and 516 lb-ft. of torque. Goes into production in 2018.
These bad boy luxury sedans have a new 4.0L twin-scroll turbo V8, with 563 hp or 603 hp in the “S” edition, launching this beast from 0-to-60 in 3.3 to 3.4s. A wet-clutch 9-speed gearbox cuts weight and improves response times, and cylinder deactivation improves fuel economy.
Here’s something we never thought we’d see. Luxury and sports car maker Mercedes-Benz is showing off two concept variants of a mid-size pickup. While we’re not sure we’d want to take these trucks off-road and get them really dirty, they sure look pretty. Launching late 2017.
