The crew from Xcar takes a look back on the modern performance cars they have experienced and ranks them by how good they sound. This clip is an absolute joy to the ears for anyone who loves the sound of a revving engine.
Just a handful of gull-winged, V10-powered Bristol Fighter models left the British brand's workshop in the 2000s. Xcar managed to get its hands on one to tell the world about it. The thoroughly odd GT wasn't perfect but certainly had some charms.
In its latest video, Xcar interviews Jaguar's great test driver Norman Dewis. He tells some fantastic stories about the company from the '50s and '60s, including being at Le Mans in '55 and driving an XKE overnight from London to the Geneva Motor Show.
There's some concern among a portion of drivers that the move from big displacement, naturally aspirated performance engines towards smaller, turbocharged units is somehow diluting the experience behind the wheel.

If anything, it was even more surprising when the business revealed that the new model would be a tuned Tesla Model S to be dubbed the FourSixteen.

Over the past 25 years and 3 model generations, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has shown that you don't have to be the best to be a massive success. The little, Japanese roadster has never been the absolute peak of automotive performance, but it's precise handling, good reliability and frugal running costs have helped make it a star. Autoblog recently tried to give you the experience of driving one on video, and now Xcar Films has made its own in an attempt to show what makes this droptop an icon.
In just a relatively short period of time, Radical Sportscars has proven to be a company true to its name. It only completed its first car in 1997 but has become among the leaders in the world of dedicated track day specials since then. These days it's even dipping its toe into the world of road models with the RXC, which stretches the definition of a vehicle for the street nearly to the breaking point.
