  • Vandal Cars One track racer

    Buyers seeking their next track-only toy may want to give U.S.-based Vandal Cars a look. The company released details on its One sports car, which packs a Honda Civic Type R engine and a featherlight weight of 1,224 pounds. The light weight is thanks to a carbon-fiber monocoque, which underpins an entirely carbon-fiber body. The front fascia sort of reminds us of a Corvette, if the sports car went full track car, but the rear wing is more Indy Car than street car. A single exhaust outlet juts out from behind the mid-mounted engine. While the engine makes 320 horsepower in the Honda hot hatch...

  • Track-focused 2013 Jaguar XKR-S spy shots

    To most, the 550-horsepower Jaguar XKR-S is about as hardcore as you’d ever want a Jaguar to be. However, for buyers that like to take their cars to the track, race them, and then drive them home again, even the XKR-S may not be focused enough. This has led management at Jaguar to develop a new track-focused version, which would compete against the likes of the BMW M3 GTS, Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe Black Series and the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Essentially race cars converted for road-use, these track-focused models are stripped of any amenities that may make life more comfortable. They are then...
