We’ve seen fast cars run the Green Hell in just under 7 minutes, but we’ve never seen anything like Timo Bernhard’s record-shattering run in Porsche’s 919 Hybrid Evo – with a bonkers lap time of just 5 min, 19.55 sec – which smashed the long-standing record by 51+ seconds.

Breakneck, voracious, raw, cosmic, angular, hungry, insane, hellacious, and unique. The KTM 1290 Super Duke R is all these adjectives and then some. There are only a handful of motorcycles that cause an elevated pulse rate just looking at them.

VW turned up to Pike’s Peak this year and broke the course record with their I.D. R EV. Prior to the race, the automaker challenged Mark Rober and William Osman to collect a little extra energy for their their supercar. We like to think the citrus power made the difference.
