  • 2019 BMW 1-Series Hatchback spy shots - Image via S. Baldauf/SB-Medien

    The current BMW 1-Series Hatchback is somewhat of an oddity in the world of compact cars, because it comes with a sporty rear-wheel-drive layout and available inline-6 engines. That's odd because the rear-wheel-drive layout eats into interior space, making an already tight cabin even tighter, while the longitudinally-mounted inline-6 makes the front of the car longer, which isn’t ideal for city cars. While performance buffs will loathe it, BMW has decided that its next 1-Series Hatchback, shown here in prototype form, will make a switch to an updated version of the front-wheel-drive UKL...

  • AMMO NYC wraps his Audi R8 with help from CKWrapsToronto
    Installing a vinyl wrap on a car is harder than it looks

    It's a dramatic move to completely change the color of a car. Do it with paint and you're stuck with your final decision once everything dries. If you go with a vinyl wrap, however, you could always just peel the sticky stuff and put the car back the way it once was. That doesn't mean applying a...

  • Matt Field drifts a mountain in 1,060-hp Corvette

    Matt Field is a top talent in the Formula Drift series. For the 2018 season, Field finished 7th overall which is a strong finish given just how stacked the field was this past season. When he wasn't racing, Field decided to slay some tires and release horsepower on a poor unsuspecting mountain road. Thankfully for us, a number of cameras were rolling and the resulting footage is amazing. Yes, that's a C6 Chevrolet Corvette that's been transformed into a proper drift car. Part of that is thanks to the 1,060 horsepower now produced by the heavily modified car. Field puts it to great use as he...

  • Lamborghini Urus

    The Lamborghini Urus is a brash, in-your-face exotic SUV. It's also very quick. YouTube channel Drag Times found out just how quick when it borrowed an Urus, hooked it up to a VBox, and recorded a 0-60 mph time of just 2.93 seconds. How does the hulking SUV run so quickly? There's a 4.0-liter V-8 under the hood and it breathes through a pair of turbochargers. All together the setup is good for 650 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. When the Urus meters all of that thrust and grunt out to all four wheels properly, it rockets toward the horizon at a shocking clip. Lamborghini said the...

  • McLaren Speedtail

    McLaren on Friday unveiled a car billed as the spiritual successor to the legendary F1: the Speedtail. It's a streamlined hypercar with a central driving position and hybrid powertrain, and just 106 will be built, the number matching the original number of F1s sold. Unlike rival hypercars like the upcoming Aston Martin Valkyrie and Mercedes-AMG One, the Speedtail isn't designed for carving up racetracks, although with an available 1,035 horsepower it will still put in blistering lap times. ALSO SEE: Here's why McLaren's Speedtail isn't street-legal in US Rather, McLaren said the Speedtail has...
