Tesla’s 2nd-Gen Roadster Wows With Sleek Lines And Supercar Performance

After devoting three quarter of the time to Tesla Semi at the recent Tesla unveiling, Elon Musk finally revealed the new follow up the original Tesla Roadster called, ermmm, Tesla Roadster. Sporting a wide stance and a suspiciously Corvette-ish/NSX-ish front end, the brand new Tesla Roadster is as sleek as you would have expect from Tesla, or any roadster for that matter. Propelling the vehicle are three motors: one driving the front wheels and two driving the rear wheels. The motors are powered by a 200 kWh battery system that offers an out-of-this-world 620 miles (998 kilometers) range on a single charge… at highway speeds.

Ex-Factory Works 1958 Porsche 550A Spyder To Go Under The Hammer

Anyone with money can afford themselves a race car, but sometimes even with all the money in the world, not everyday you get a chance to own a piece of motoring history. Granted, not everyone is a fan of Porsche but if you are, the good news is, this is the “not the everyday,” this is the Ex-Factory Works Team Le Mans 1958 Porsche 550A Spyder. Besides the obvious freaking dope aesthetic, evergreen aesthetic, this beautiful classic race car was a Le Mans and Nürburgring podium finisher and perhaps more importantly, it is the most original examples in existence.

Nissan Created A R/C GT-R Controlled Via A DualShock4 Controller

Keen eye readers will probably notice something peculiar about the Nissan GT-R featured here. Take a closer look and you will realize that it had opaque red windows. Weird, isn’t it? Even it has a clear as day windshield, opaque windows do not make it a safe car to drive, much less driving it at speeds on the track. Well, the thing is, this Nissan GT-R is not any ordinary GT-R; it is a fully remote control Nissan GT-R, cleverly called Nissan GT-R /C. R/C. Get it, get it?

Toyota GR HV SPORTS Can Switch Between Auto And H-Gate Manual Shift At The Press Of A Button

What see here is NOT a Ferrari, although I do find it bearing an uncanny resemblance with one of the Prancing Horse marque’s exotic ride. This is the Toyota GR HV SPORTS Concept Car, a sports car which you can enjoy without bearing all the guilt of tainting the air because, hybrid. Yeah, it is a hybrid car, alright, but while alleviating your Eco-conscious (somewhat…), it still has a good’ol IC for, you know, the oomph. Toyota said the GR HV SPORTS has a design reminiscing that of Toyota Gazoo Racing’s TS050 Hybrid racing (hence, the ‘GR’ in the moniker), but strangely, it looks nothing like the TS050 as far as design is concerned. Unless you count targa top a design similarity, but really, don’t push it. It looks nothing remotely like the TS050. Period.

It’s Official. As Of September 20, GT2 RS Is The Fastest 911 Of All Time

Porsche fans wanting the fastest 911 ever made without making the workshop their permanent residence, look no further than the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. The road-approved sports car made history on September 20 when it took on the 20.6-kilometer (12.8 miles) Nürburgring Nordschleife, making it in a record time of 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds with an average speed of 184.11 km/h (114.40 mph). The monumental lap time not only surpassed the company’s set goal of 7 minutes and 5 seconds, but it also wiped the previous record for road-approved sports cars set by Lars Kern from Germany and Nick Tandy from the UK with the best timing of 6 minutes, 50 seconds. Continue reading It’s Official. As Of September 20, GT2 RS Is The Fastest 911 Of All Time

Daihatsu Copen Turned ” Mini GT-R”: Blasphemy Or Awesomeness?

We heard Japanese Liberty Walk have been turning out pretty crazy custom rides with their custom aero kits. A look at the company’s latest creation, what we heard might just be true. The custom ride in question, called Nissan GT-K, is based on a K-class Daihatsu Copen. For the uninitiated, Copen is a tiny roadster that, IMHO, barely fits a grown-ass man. Words cannot emphasize how small this car is and if you knew how small it is, you will agree to it into a mini Godzilla is something rather intriguing. Btw, you heard right. Liberty Walks had a Daihatsu Copen slapped on with some pretty serious aeros, turning a previously cute roadster into a menacing mini Nissan GT-R.

Mercedes-AMG Project ONE Is Basically A Formula 1 Car In A Road Car Shell

Some people aspired to be a Formula One race car driver for, you know, the fame and fortune, but if you really love cars, like cars that are as powerful as the hybrid technology offered by today’s Formula 1 race car, the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE is probably the closest anyone will ever get. The obvious pro of this ride is, it looks like a perfectly normal car that assimilate easily with the rest of the traffic. Never mind the exotic and the obvious, million dollar look. At least, you won’t look out of place or get overlooked by big rigs when you are on the road and also, you can at least bring a friend with you unlike a real Formula 1 race car.
