  • Nico Rosberg buys Mercedes-AMG One, hints at 2.2-second 0-62 mph time

    Former Formula 1 World Champion Nico Rosberg is enjoying his retirement. The 33-year now serves as an ambassador for Mercedes-Benz. One of the perks of this relationship is a guaranteed spot on the list for buyers itching for the upcoming Mercedes-AMG One hypercar.

Rosberg believes the One will be capable of a 0-62 mph time of just 2.2 seconds. By comparison, his F1 race car could complete that jaunt in 2.5 seconds. He says the top...

The record for production cars is the 6:44.97 that was set by a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ earlier this year. Recently, a P1 LM was taken for a run up Colorado's Pikes Peak. This wasn't a time attack so the driver wasn't pushing the car to its limits. It's still fun to watch, though. The sights and sounds are amazing. Launched in 2017, the P1 LM...

  • Jeep Trackhawk HPE1000 is faster down the drag strip than a Ford GT

    The Ford GT is very quick. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is also very quick. There's no way that it's as quick as the GT though, right?

Hennessey CEO and founder John Hennessey has a Ford GT to call his own and he allowed the stock supercar to face off against a modified Trackhawk. The standard Hellcat-ified 707 horsepower-having Jeep will dash from 0-60 mph in around 3.5 seconds, which is extremely quick for such a large vehicle. With the Ford, you're look at a...

  • Bugatti Veyron owner hits 250 mph on the Autobahn

After a lot of planning, a few not-quite fast enough attempts, and some recalibration with the car itself, Radim achieved his goal of hitting 250 mph in his Veyron, which is just shy of the car's tested 254 mph top speed. The planning involved finding the right road. That lead Radim...
