1980 Ferrari 308 GTB+

The GTBi’s coachwork remained largely unchanged with respect to the 308 GTB, apart from a few modifications to the interior. The most important changes, however, were made to the engine. In fact, in competition, fuel injection systems had replaced the traditional stacks of carburettors and, as transferring racing experience to production cars has always been […]

2018 Ford Focus RS Review

An even harder-core version of Ford’s already bonkers Focus RS hot hatch called the RS500. All sorts of vents, scoops, and spoilers suggest a comprehensive set of upgrades meant to increase track performance. Expect the car to be significantly decontented for lighter weight and to feature larger wheels and tires for improved grip. The suspension […]

2017 Ford GT: The Star-Spangled, 600-plus-hp Hypercar

“Engineered to keep company with exotics” is how Ford modestly refers to its bombshell 2015 Detroit auto show debut, the GT hypercar. The concept’s appearance wasn’t a huge surprise, as we learned months ago that Ford was taking a new GT to Le Mans in 2016, and such a car must be homologated. But as […]

1980 Chrysler cars Full Review

During the mid-1970s, big cars had been derided as boats, with demand slumping as gasoline grew costly and, sometimes, hard to buy. Chrysler had downsized its cars dramatically; the massive C and D bodies were gone, and the largest cars in the corporation were now the R bodies. These were closely based on the old B […]

1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

Seven liters! Four hundred and twenty-eight cubic inches in a Mustang! We were expecting a cataclysm on wheels, the automotive equivalent of the end of the earth. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that the GT 500 isn’t anything like that. The old corollary to that old adage, “There’s no substitute for cubic inches,” is […]

A Totally Unscientific Ranking of Ken Block’s Gymkhana Cars

7 Gymkhana 3: 2011 Ford Fiesta Listen, there are no losers here, and Block’s 850-hp Frankenstein Fiesta—which announced his switch from Subaru to Ford in 2010—is proof of that alone. But the slime-green rims and ink-spill livery haven’t aged that well five years on, and for that reason alone, this one clocks in at number […]

Brabus has built a 641bhp Mercedes-AMG C63 S

This is no ordinary Mercedes-AMG C63. It’s a Mercedes-AMG C63 to which Brabus has added much power and many torques. The headline figures are 641bhp and 604lb ft, increases of 138bhp and 88lb ft over a normal, not-at-all inadequate 503bhp C63 S. The 0-62mph now takes just 3.7secs – a 0.3sec improvement – and it’s limited (yes, […]

VW Arteon The evolution of VW

The Volkswagen CC was among the best-looking cars in the automaker’s portfolio, although its styling always wasn’t completely resolved with proportions that seemed slightly off the mark. But the CC lent credibility to the German automaker’s claim of being something more than a standard mass-market brand, and it was peddled by VW as the missing […]
