The Porsche 550 Beck Spyder is a faithful recreation of the famous car that killed James Dean. Our friends at DriveWithDave took one for a spin. 180 hp and 1200 lb make this little road rocket huge fun to drive at a fraction of the price of the real thing.
We spent a few days behind the wheel of Ford’s fastest Fusion – a mid-sized sedan with a turbo V6, 325hp, 380 lb-ft. of torque, AWD, and adaptive dampers. We found a capable daily driver that’s also a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Check out our full review on 95octane.
If Lexus’ latest automotive autonomy feature sounds too good to be true, that’s because it’s way too close to April Fools Day for us to buy it. Still, the idea that you could force annoying drivers to move out of your way remotely should come standard on all modern vehicles.
The latest version of Mercane Wheels‘ personal transportation device uses a stable, yet nimble 3-wheel setup for easy riding, a quick folding mechanism, a powerful 500-watt motor that speeds you along up to 22 mph, and an 8.6Ah battery for up to 25 mi of cruising range.
Racing seats improve safety and stop your body from jostling around when cornering. ChrisFix recently went out to buy a racing seat and used it as an opportunity to explain the basics of the equipment: their types, materials, how it should fit you and your car, and more.
During the 2017 Monster Jam World Finals XVIII, driver Lee O’Donnell was zipping around the dirt in his beastly ride, The Mad Scientist, when he pulled off a stunt never before performed in a monster truck – a front flip. Naturally, he went on to win the freestyle competition.
We got behind the wheel of Alfa’s 505 hp Super Bowl star car. Beyond its striking looks, it drives fantastically, with precise steering, a superbly stiff chassis, and more power than we need, but exactly as much as we want. Hear it launch, then read our full review on 95octane.
Our friends at DriveWithDave spent some time on the road with a vintage Ferrari 330 GTC. Its 300 hp V12 made it a fast, comfortable cruiser designed to carry the well-heeled to their destination in style. Luxurious, powerful, and one of Ferrari’s best GTs, only 600 were made.
“Bugatti calls this the world’s fastest concert hall, and they’re not wrong. But the real symphony is out back.” Carfection shows us just what $2.6M gets you: an incredibly luxurious car that morphs in a split-second depending on how hard you step on the gas. More here.
Howe & Howe’s Ripsaw EV2 offers incredible speed and agility off-road, while keeping its occupants clean and dry inside its high tech cockpit. It’s got more than 12″ of suspension travel and a 600+hp diesel engine. It also comes in a “pickup” version that carries bikes.
Do you hate waiting in traffic? The Hum Rider solves this problem by widening its wheels to ride between the lanes, then rising up about nine feet in the air to drive right over traffic jams. We want one, but sadly it’s just a promotional stunt for Verizon’s Hum car gadgets.
The Fast & Furious series banks on beautiful cars, beautiful people and beautiful stunts. But it wouldn’t be around if its filmmakers didn’t nail the basics of car chase scenes, which mainly involve giving viewers a consistent direction to contextualize the action.
The Elise Sprint’s carbon fiber parts help shave off over 90 lb. of weight compared to the standard model, giving it a dry weight of just 1759 lb. It also borrows the Exige Sport 350’s open-gate gearbox. Available in 1.6L 134 hp or a supercharged 1.8L 217 hp engine. Sadly, it’s not US-bound.
