  • The Warszawa M20 GT is a coach built Ford Mustang

    Polish coachbuilder KHM Motor has a vehicular vision and it all starts with the Ford Mustang, a sixth-generation Mustang GT. Using the V-8 steed as its base, KHM has reimagined the Mustang's muscular lines into something...quite different. It's called the Warszawa M20 GT, and it's meant to pay tribute to a Polish automotive classic. Russian automaker GAZ licensed its M20 Pobeda to Polish automaker FSO during the Soviet era. FSO then created a version of its own called the Warszawa M20, and it's the first Polish automobile developed after World War II. KHM has chosen that vehicle as the origin...

  • Hennessey Performance tuned Dodge Demon makes 1,013 rear-wheel horsepower
    Hennessey's Dodge Challenger SRT Demon makes 1,013 HP...at the wheels

    Just a few short years ago, there would have been no way we'd believe that a mainstream automaker would sell a street-legal, 840-horsepower coupe. But Dodge does just that and the car is appropriately called the Demon. As is often the case though, tuning shops love taking already insane things and...

    Pair of Dodge Demons fetch relatively restrained bids at auction

    The suggested retail price of a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is $86,090.

Good luck finding one for under $100,000, of course...

  • Armormax armored Dodge Charger Hellcat police vehicle

  • 2019 Chevrolet Camaro Turbo 1LE first drive
    2019 Chevrolet Camaro Turbo 1LE first drive review: Marathoner's muscles in a wide receiver's body

    Muscle cars of the 1960s generally did one thing well. They ground out tarmac-ripping power and torque, hurtling their body-on-frame selves straight down the road or the dragstrip with astonishing acceleration. But squiggly roads, braking zones, or enduring a track meet for longer than 15 minutes...

  • Hellcat driver hits 198 mph on the highway
    22-year old Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat owner charged for going 198 mph on public road

    The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is a 200-mph machine. It's a 707-horsepower (717 for 2019) insane muscle car that's warped our definition of "appropriate power." But with that power comes responsibility, and that's something a 22-year-old in North Carolina clearly lacks. William Jefferson posted a...

  • Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro

    Despite arriving in dealer showrooms just a month ago, the 2019 Ford Mustang has received a price increase. The refreshed 2019 Camaro, meanwhile, arrives with a price cut.

According to Cars Direct, the destination charge increases by $95 for all trim levels, rising from $900 to $995. Along with that hike, a few other Mustangs rise in price. Every Mustang powered by the 310-horsepower 2.3-liter turbo-4 jumps $275. That...
