Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z51 - Driven

By info@topspeed.com (Philippe Daix)
Chevy quite literally redefined what the Corvette name means when it unveiled the all-new, mid-engined C8 Corvette a model that was decades in the making. Finally bringing the mid-engine configuration to the Corvette was no easy undertaking, but in the end, the new Corvette looked like a supercar, performed like a high-end sportscar, and created quite a stir in the automotive community thanks to its attractive low price. It seems impossible that a car like the C8 Corvette could retail... [read more]

This Is a REAL and ONLY Factory-Built Bulletproof Porsche 911

By info@topspeed.com (Tudor Rus)
We dont know about you, but whenever the words bulletproof and car are joined together, our minds immediately flash nameplates such as the Range Rover, BMW X5, 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, you get the point. Heck, the business of adding ballistic protection to a given car is so lucrative that there are companies that manage to take the vehicle to the extreme think of Rezvani and their Wrangler-based Tank.

By info@topspeed.com (Ciprian Florea)
Owning a supercar is cool and all, but driving a really powerful sleeper can be just as satisfying if you're not into wild looks. Take this Mitsubishi Galant for instance. It looks like a really mundane four-door sedan from the early 1990s, but it's actually a full-blown supercar under the hood. With an output of around 800 horsepower, it can outgun any production sedan available right now. And their drivers won't even know what hit them.

Living With The Ferrari Roma On a Daily Basis? It MIght Not Be As Good As You Think

By info@topspeed.com (Ciprian Florea)
In 2020 Ferrari added a third grand tourer to its lineup, the Roma. Slotted below the V-12-powered 812 Superfast, the Roma features a 3.9-liter V-8, just like the Portofino, but unlike the latter, it's a coupe. Thanks to a new design language, the Roma is one of the prettiest modern Ferraris out there. But is it a performance grand tourer that you can live with on a daily basis?

Honda Put a 248K-Mile 97 CR-V in Its Museum? Yes, and We Drove It

Joy, then puzzlement: That was my reaction when Honda asked if Id like to drive a vehicle from their semi-secret museum in southern Californiaand then told me that museum piece was a 1997 Honda CR-V . Okay, I realize its been nearly 25 years (cripes, where does the time go?) since the Honda CR-V first hit these shores, and what a seminal game-changer it was. But a CR-V? In a museum?

That Time a Racing Legend Endorsed Healing Crystals for Cars

The modern wellness industry has spawned countless online influencers and personalities eager to hawk supposed cures and lifestyle tweaks to millions of fans. But even before the dawn of Instagram, kale smoothies, and chakra cleanses, it was still treacherous for any public figure to hitch their wagon to less-than-scientific methodologies. Case in point: Australian racing legend Peter Brock. For one of Australia's biggest names in racing, the decision to go full New Age in the late 1980s proved so costly... [read more]

New Federal Regulation Kicks Open Door for Classic-Car Replicas

Way back in 2015, Congress passed the Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act (LVMVMA). It required the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) to come up with guidelines to allow certain small vehicle manufacturers (those that sell less than 5,000 vehicles globally per year) a path toward producing turn-key replicas, instead of kit cars, in a limited number and with a variety of restrictions. And then nothing happened. Until now. The NHTSA has finally gotten its act together after prodding... [read more]
