The Nurburgring's All-Time Lap Record Could Be In Trouble

The Nurburgring’s All-Time Lap Record Could Be In Trouble

The Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo looks ready to slay the dragon

If the Nurburgring’s 35-year old all-time lap record ends up falling, we can point to the Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo as the car that did it. The unrestricted version of the German automaker’s LMP1 racer was recently spotted going full blast at the Nurburgring, fueling speculation that the car is preparing to take down the track’s 6:11.3 lap record that was set in 1983 by Stefan Bellof and his Porsche 956. It’s unclear if the 919 Hybrid Evo’s appearance at the Nordschleife is a sign of things to come, but the car’s recent globe-trotting, record-breaking exploits on other race tracks suggest that it has its sights sets on breaking the world’s pre-eminent lap record.

2019 Subaru WRX and WRX STI Series.Gray

Limited-edition package adds new paint and extra standard features

Having just celebrated 50 years in the U.S. with a batch of limited-edition packages for eight different models at the Chicago Auto Show, Subaru unveiled two more special-edition versions of the WRX and WRX STI at the 2018 Subaru Tecnica International Boxerfest in Washington D.C.

Only 1,000 units of the Series.Gray cars will be produced, with 750 WRX and only 250 WRX STI models to leave the factory. Besides being produced in smaller numbers, the WRX STI also gets a revised chassis for a sportier ride. Let’s find out more about both cars in the review below.

Does the Audi Q8's Massive Grille Ruin the Whole Design?

Does the Audi Q8’s Massive Grille Ruin the Whole Design?

It’s not what you’d expect from a range-topping SUV

The Audi Q8 SUV is making its long-awaited debut today, and the first images of the SUV reveal a somewhat messy-looking front end that appears to have robbed the vehicle from becoming a drop-dead gorgeous model. The overall design of the production Q8 is relatively similar to the concept versions — the Q8 and Q8 Sport Concepts - that came before it, but there is something to be said for what looks to be an overdone design by Audis’ traditionally astute designers.

Video of the Day: 2018 Ford Super Snake Promotional Video

Video of the Day: 2018 Ford Super Snake Promotional Video

The Shelby Mustang Super Snake has been updated for 2018 and 2019 with extra power, new looks, and a desire to eat anything that comes near it – all for a price of $113,445.

If you’re in the market for a Mustang with excessive power and an excessive price tag, then look no further than the update Shelby Super Snake. For that $113,445 price tag, you get a base Mustang GT with a whole host of add-ons that bring power output up to 710 horsepower in standard form. Standard performance equipment includes Ford Performance 710-horsepower supercharger, Shelby’s extreme cooling package, performance half shafts, short throw shifter, one-piece driveshaft (manual transmission only,) Ford performance exhaust, 20-inch wheels, and a Shelby Brembo brake system with break and bearing cooling.

That’s not the best of the Super Snake, though. If you really want something more, you can opt for the 800+ horsepower supercharger. It’s a Whipple unit and comes pre-polished. According to Shelby, the 800+ horsepower upgrade can deliver a 60-mph sprint in 3.5 seconds. It might be more powerful and a bit faster, but we’d rather get our hands on one of those 10 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake continuation cars instead. Either way, go ahead and watch the video below to get your Super Snake on full tilt.
