Ford has a new Mustang variant slotted between the GT and the Shelby GT350: the 2019 Mustang Bullitt. It boasts a unique 475-horsepower rating and a few additional performance upgrades, not to mention a coat of Dark Highland Green paint.

Honda's Civic Type R is now the fastest front-wheel-drive car at six top race tracks around the globe. The latest record to fall is for the Hungaroring, thanks to some nifty driving by Formula 1 world champion Jenson Button.

Remember American Specialty Cars? The company that once worked with McLaren to build fast Ford Mustangs? Well, it also built a modified Dodge Viper. Just one, actually. The car is now up for grabs.
