You might have to travel back in time to 1992 to find a parody of Quantum Leap relevant, but that takes nothing away from Tanner Foust’s mad drifting skills, the insane exhaust notes, and lung-filling dose of tire smoke and dust you’re in store for in the next six minutes.

The Mercedes-AMG GT R is the most hardcore variant of the already monstrous AMG GT, stripping weight, adding power, and upgrading its suspension, brakes and aero for track use. Carfection’s Alex Goy was lucky enough to take this one on the track at the Nürburgring.
Our friends over at Rides & Drives had the rare opportunity to spend a few days behind the wheel of a Rolls-Royce Phantom, and lived in the lap of luxury at Georgia’s beautiful Sea Island resort, where they practiced skeet shooting, and picked up a few putting pointers.
With May, Hammond, and Clarkson gone, we’d much rather watch The Grand Tour than the new Top Gear, but we just had to share this extended footage in which Ken Block tore up the streets of London with his 1400 hp Hoonicorn Mustang, with Matt LeBlanc riding shotgun.
An all-wheel drive version of Dodge’s hulking sports coupe. While its 305 hp V6 isn’t exactly a Hellcat engine, it should offer plenty of thrills, and an opportunity to enjoy one of America’s great muscle cars in the snow without just being stuck doing donuts.
Our friends at Rides & Drives head to Northern Wisconsin and tell a tale of big fish, cold beer, Hawg Wobblers, supper clubs, and the 2016 Nissan Titan XD. If you’ve ever thought of taking a fishing trip to the northwoods, you might want to read this first!
A fun time-lapse video for gearheads, as the lovely Giovanna Parascandolo takes a fully disassembled engine from a 1967 Fiat 500 F and reassembles it. She says it took her about two full days to complete the task, but it’s been digested down to just under 4 minutes.
Cadillac returns to prototype endurance racing in spectacular fashion, with a 600 hp V8 track beast inspired by the CTS-V. It rocks sleek aerodynamics, the requisite racing gear, and weighs just 2,050 pounds. Debuts at the Rolex 24 race in Daytona on January 28-29, 2017.
Our friends at Rides & Drives answer the question: what happens when you get to spend 36 hours with no itinerary (and no adult supervision) in the most powerful Rolls-Royce Motor Car ever built? Join them as they blast across the countryside in a Wraith Black Badge.
To show off the precision and predictability of their powertrains, Volvo Trucks turned one of their big rigs into a tow boat for a paraglider. Watch flyer Guillaume Galvani and driver Louise Marriott work in perfect harmony to pull off this dangerous stunt without a hitch.
The fastest ever variant of the featherweight sports coupe packs a 375 hp supercharged V6, launching the 2425 lb. car from 0-to-60 in just 3.5s. Unlike other supercars, it’s still available with a manual. Coming to the UK, Europe and Japan, but sadly no US model is planned.
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.
