    Report: Ford won't be releasing GT500 lap times for the 'Ring, or any other car
    1385569740

    Trucks have towing capacity, EVs have driving range and performance cars have Nürburgring lap times. What do all three have in common? They should all be taken with a grain of salt. Currently, there is no sanctioned way to record lap times or verify production-spec cars – a lesson we ...

    1385396820

    It turns out that after toting a 7:08 time around the fearsome Nürburgring Nordschleife for the new Nismo-tuned GT-R, Nissan might not have been entirely honest about the car it was using. From what we've been hearing from a few different publications, the GT-R featured in the video isn't ...

    Report: German automakers bidding on Nürburgring?
    1383597180

    That the Nürburgring is in trouble should come as no surprise. The famed German circuit went bankrupt over a year ago, although it has remained open while the government bodies that own it have entertained bids from prospective new owners.

    1382455740

    Yesterday McLaren released official performance stats for the new P1, including a blistering 2.8-second 0-62 time, along with additional acceleration and braking figures.

    1382054520

    If there's one thing we've learned from the latest video from Drive, it's that the combination of Chris Harris and David Coulthard will produce some very quotable moments. Take this exchange, for example. DC: "We are by some way the slowest." CH: "But we're in a class of three cars, ...

    Video: 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28 clocks 7:37.47 Nürburgring lap time
    1381842120

    Muscle cars, as their name implies, are historically more about muscle than they are about the performance it brings. 0-60 and quarter-mile times, sure, but not lap records on twisting and turning road courses. But Chevy is out to change all that with the latest Camaro Z/28. The Bowtie brand has ...

    BMW is preparing its new M4 for a debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show, and the final testing stages have apparently involved many, many laps of the Nürburgring. The only problem is, the two-door track star appears to have a case of the waggly tail, as spotted by a spy ...

    1378222200

    Acceleration times and top speeds are all well and fine, but there are few bragging rights quite as hotly contested as a Nürburgring lap time. The current king of the hill is the Dodge Viper ACR, which managed to hustle around the Green Hell in 7:12.1. But that looks poised to be de-throned ...
