We’ve seen (and smelled) our share of smoked tire rubber over the years, but we’re totally captivated by Engineering Explained’s video of a burnout captured in front of a $40,000 FLIR T1K thermal camera that shows exactly which parts of the tires and brakes get hottest.
We had the opportunity to take the new retractable fastback version of the MX-5 Miata for a spin through the hills of Southern Cali. The MX-5 RF is every bit as fun as the roadster, looks amazing, and offers added shelter from the elements. Full review on 95octane.
If given the choice between the EM50 Urban Assault Vehicle and the Action Mobil Globecruiser 7500, we’d go with this one. This mobile home has a 532 hp engine, an off-road capable 6×6 drivetrain, plentiful interior space, and even has a motorcycle dock out back.
Our friends at DriveWithDave experienced the exotic and expensive Alfa Romeo GTC. Top up or down, the car is simply beautiful. Buttery smooth shifts are easy to match without a glance at the tach, and that Italian engine noise is much closer to your ears in this cabriolet.
The Mint 400 is called The Great American Off-Road Race. To make the experience even better, Toyota helped us turn it into an awesome off-road road trip and adventure ending up in Las Vegas. We queued up Fear and Loathing and hit the road for an amazing weekend adventure.
A four-door offshoot of the AMG GT-R. And it’s a hybrid. On paper, it seems like the folks at Mercedes-AMG have lost their minds, but in this case, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. A twin-turbo 4L V8 and an electric motor combine to give this AWD up to 805 hp.
The latest version of the 911 GT3 now comes with either the usual 7-speed PDK or a 6-speed manual transmission. Its 4L flat-six produces up to 500 hp and 339 lb-ft. of torque, while its redesigned front and rear help it create up to 20% more downforce than its predecessor.
Good Bad News everyone! The production version of the new Civic Type-R is almost exactly the same as its prototype. It’s still front-wheel drive, it still looks over-the-top, and it’s still coming to the US. Its 2L turbocharged VTEC produces up to 306hp and 295lb.ft. of torque.
A dramatically styled 2-seat convertible concept from the British luxury automaker, with a fully-electric drivetrain, a bold backlit grille, and an extravagant interior featuring a curved glass console with an OLED display, and an aircraft-inspired “U”-shaped steering wheel.
Hot on the heels of the redesigned Panamera, Porsche has dropped this bombshell – a station wagon version of the luxury sports sedan, with engines from 330 to 550 hp, along with seating for 5 and increased luggage space. Unlike most wagons, this one is coming to the US.
Over 150 vehicles were made for Mad Max: Fury Road. Many of them got wrecked in the process, but photographer John Platt was able to take beauty shots of some of the cars, trucks and motorcycles in their pristine state. More on his website and Behance page.
A key twists, and the Ferrari 2.4 Liter Dino motor comes to life with a roar. Our friends at DriveWithDave spent an afternoon driving the iconic Lancia Stratos Stradale. Go behind the wheel of the car that won the Group 4 rally car championship, and in its day, was untouchable.
“Time speeds up, it slows down, it melts. You may be out there for 3 hours at a time but you can’t recall any one particular moment.” Filmmaker Adrian Bonvento shares the thoughts of the Stevenson Motorsports team at the 2017 24 Hours of Daytona in this perfect short film.
Indian Motorcycle’s tourer is ready to take on the longest road trips, and features gorgeous vintage styling elements like a leather trunk for helmets and fringed saddlebags, and modern amenities like a 7-inch infotainment system, 100-watt audio, and an adjustable windscreen.
We took the latest Discovery for a road trip across Utah and Arizona, and this versatile 7-seater proved it has the chops to live up to the Land Rover name, taking on sand, mud, snow, dirt, rocks, rain, and even towing a distressed semi along the way. Full review on 95octane.
