Affalterbach may or may not call it a Black Series model, but it's been spotted testing a more hardcore version of the Mercedes-AMG GT around the Nürburgring – so the Porsche 911 GT3 had better watch out.
Jaguar is continuing to develop an even higher performance version of the F-Type with a more aggressive body, rumored to be turning up the power on its 5.0-liter supercharged V8 to take output as high as 600 horsepower.
Any hope of rescuing the 2015 German Grand Prix ground to a halt when the FIA has officially removed it from the Formula One Championship for this year after negotiations with both the Nürburgring and Hockenheim bore no fruit.
At the Geneva Motor Show this year, Radical will be showcasing an upgraded version of its RXC coupe with 530 horsepower squeezed out of a 3.5-liter V6 and an eye fixed squarely on beating its own Nürburgring lap record.
Since 2006, the German Grand Prix has alternated between Hockenheim and the Nürburgring. But after the latter was taken over by new owners, a dispute over fees will see it staying at Hockenheim for the time being.
Few bragging rights are as hotly contested as Nürburgring lap times. Things have gotten so heated, in fact, that automakers have started slicing up the pie even finer: who makes the fastest sedan ever to lap the Norschleife, who the fastest front-driver, the fastest this and the fastest that. But the ultimate bragging rights still belong at the top of the leaderboard for the fastest street-legal production car. And now another exotic automaker is throwing its hat in the ring.
Developing a new vehicle is not without its complications, we're sure, but usually things follow a fairly predictable progression: you develop a prototype, you test it, test it and test it again, then you put it into production. What you don't expect is that your prototype will burn to the ground, but that's what famously happened to the NSX which Honda engineers were testing a few months ago.
For the past couple of decades, Land Rover has watched pretender after contender try to topple it from its throne as the world's ultimate purveyor of luxury SUVs. The British automaker has answered with an ever-expanding and ever-improving array of entries of its own, capped by a flagship Range Rover that seems to go more upscale every year, positioning itself as the high-riding counterpart to fellow British luxury marques like Jaguar and Bentley. It might even abide by the Leaping Cat, its sist
Aston Martin is on the verge of a renaissance that stands to be the biggest shift for the British automaker since it went independent in 2007 – if not since Ford took it over in the early 1990s. It's got a new chief executive, a new engine deal in place with Mercedes-AMG, a new platform under development and – if the new Lagonda sedan is anything to go by – maybe a new design direction in the works. And what do we have here? A test mule that could foreshadow one of the first ne
Endurance sports car racing always always centered around the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but that's not the only event on the calendar. For the past few years, the FIA and the ACO (the French racing body behind the race at Le Mans) have come together for the World Endurance Championship, the only series that features the top-tier LMP1 prototypes from Audi, Porsche and Toyota. Now the ACO has revealed the full calendar for next season, and it includes a rather enticing new addition.
