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.
Once a year, a crowd of hard-working and dedicated fans gather at the Tejano Super Show in Odessa, Texas to show off their low-riders with their crazy jacked up suspension systems. Director Ben Steinbauer’s slice of life documentary is basically the exact opposite of Petrolicious.
Ever Tires’ new airless bicycle tires are rated for 5,000mi. They’re available for variable- or single speed bikes and in many sizes. They weigh about 1lb more than ordinary tires and have a slightly stiffer ride, but these should be good enough for casual riders.
“That’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” Stunt driver Ben Collins (formerly The Stig) successfully drove a Range Rover Sport down Mürren, Switzerland’s Inferno ski course, with a 7100+ft. descent, slopes up to 75%, over ice and loose terrain, at speeds up to 96 mph.
Going under the hammer on 1/19/17, this particular Ferrari 340 competed at the 1952 Mille Miglia, 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Targa Florio. Petrolicious spoke with current owner Michael Stehle about what it’s like to possess a car with such a rich heritage.

One of the cooler builds at SEMA 2016, this 1971 Challenger combines classic style with modern performance. It rocks a brand new 392 Hemi V8 crate engine packing 485hp, a lowered suspension, and Hellcat brakes. We love the “Bitchin Black” paint and minimal red accents.
This spectacular mountain bike uses a clutching mechanism to send power from the rear wheel via a set of interlocking driveshafts. If you can’t afford one, pledge just a little bit and support adventurer Kate Leeming, and her mission to bike to cross Antarctica and the South Pole.
One of Toyota’s slick rides for SEMA 2016, Cartel Customs and Star Side Design turned the 4-door daily driver into a 2-door sportscar, turbo-boosted to 250 whp, stripped it down to just 2000 lb. with the driver, then coated the whole thing in a vibrant two-tone paint.
This low-riding, custom-built beast started life as a 2016 Land Cruiser, but now is capable of pushing out more than 2000 hp, and hitting a top speed of 220 mph, courtesy of Motorsports Technical Center, and a pair of volleyball-sized Garrett turbochargers. Debuts at SEMA 2016.
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.
Toyota’s most rugged mid-size pickup yet, the new Tacoma TRD Pro rides on 2.5″ FOX Shocks, is wider, taller, has a 35º approach angle, and a 1/4″ skid plate to protect components. We dig the blacked out grille, hood scoop, and overfenders. Read our full review on 95octane.
