With the Prologue Concept, Audi introduces its new design language. For an automaker that has ridden a wave of unprecedented success on the back of innovative design — definitive, clean and at times audacious — a concept vehicle that promises to usher in Audi’s new DNA is a game-changing moment. Up high in the Hollywood […]


Dodge’s performance arm, SRT, transplants the supercharged iron block HEMI V8 from this summer’s ludicrous 707-horsepower Challenger Hellcat — the most powerful and fastest American muscle car ever built — and shoehorns it into their four-door full-size sedan. Let the madness begin. There is no greater luxury than power. And because of this simple metric, […]

Crewe decides to go truly absurd with its latest flagship barge

In the opulently appointed world of Bentley Motors, the GT Continental has always been the bristling high-performance model. Its recently unveiled GT Speed is the most powerful and fastest Bentley ever built (626 horsepower/206 mph), while the GT3-R edition has been dubbed its quickest (0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds). So where does that leave […]


Houston, Texas-based modifiers of obscene horsepower, Hennessey, fill their corporate coffers supercharging Corvette and Cadillac engines to the point of absurdity. But they are best known for their Bugatti-killing Venom hypercar. Hennessey and Bugatti, in fact, have gone back to the lab many times in the past 10 years to squeeze out a bit more power […]


America has never had a car quite like Cadillac’s burly CTS-V. In sedan form there is no Yankee rival; the Chevy SS doesn’t even come close.

Bristling with 556-horsepower and […]

In the past year, clean diesel sales have soared, buoyed by a new crop of Audis, Mercs, Chevies, Mazdas, Cadillacs, Jeeps and even Porsches — not to mention VW, which boasted selling over 100,000 TDIs […]

395 horsepower, 332 lb-ft of torque & 174 mph top speed

Not happy with letting Mercedes-Benz claim ownership of “World’s Most Powerful Four-Cylinder” title, Volkswagen has decided to create an absurd beast of a car. Their new hot hatch Golf R 400 Concept boasts performance that buries Benz’s AMG-enhanced CLA45 — although that car really exists in the real world, whereas the Golf R 400 is strictly a concept (although […]


The International Supercar Wars just got a little testier this week, with the pronouncement from a California-based company called Trion Supercars that they were engineering a 2,000-horsepower rubber and asphalt devourer. Dubbed the Nemesis, the wildly curvaceous hypercar takes some styling cues from the McLaren P1, but quickly moves on from there to craft a […]
