The Ferrari Breadvan Hommage Is Almost Ready And Its Gorgeous

By info@topspeed.com (Michael Fira)

The Numbers Are In and the 2021 Kia K5 Really Does Outperform the BMW 3 Series

By info@topspeed.com (Ciprian Florea)

Theres Something So Mesmerizing About Watching This Wooden Ford Range Raptor Come to Life

By info@topspeed.com (Michael Fira)
The Ford Ranger Raptor is the badass brother of the log-crawling mid-size pickup truck that is the Ranger. The deal with each one of Ford's Raptors is that they can still successfully face rough terrains but do so with an added dose of cool. Big tires, a wider body, and more ground clearance complete the image of a truck that few will mess with, even if it's all been rendered in wood which is the material of choice in the... [read more]

Micro Changes in Tinytown: 2021 Nissan Micra Loses Diesel, Gains Trims

The Nissan Micra is an interesting, tiny little thing that in an alternate universe (maybe a late-2010s gas crunch?) might have made it to American shores as a gas-saving, subcompact commuter car. After all, it's loaded with more character than a Versa , and our close Canadian neighbors had been able to buy Micras from their introduction in the early 1980s right up until this year, when it was finally discontinued. And in Mexico, the previous-generation Micra is still available... [read more]

Subaru Says Theres a Good Reason the 2022 BRZ Doesnt Have a Turbo

By info@topspeed.com (Kirby Garlitos)
Visually, the second-generation Subaru BRZ is a major departure from its predecessor. Its also packing a bigger 2.4-liter engine, which counts as an answered prayer to everyone who wanted the new BRZ to pack more power than the first-generation model. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder mill is still naturally aspirated, bursting the bubble of those who wanted the new BRZs engine to be turbocharged. As disappointing for some as that sounds, Subaru had reasons for sticking with a naturally aspirated engine.

This Lamborghini Countach is Marlboro Red and Has a Lexus Twin-Turbo V-8

The Lamborghini Countach is one of the most famous out of all of the supercars to have come out of the 20th century. With its Gandini-penned wedge-shape design that became the standard for what a supercar should look like, the Countach really was one of those cars that looked better than they went. As such, Lamborghini tried to make it even more dramatic as the years rolled by but failed miserably at the job. Could this tobacco-liveried replica succeed where... [read more]

2021 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class First Look: Bach in the High Life Again

Until recently, modern-day Maybachs have mostly flown under the radar. The original 2003 Maybach 57 and 62 largely looked like old Mercedes-Benz S-Classes. Both were unceremoniously discontinued in 2012 after having their lunch eaten by the days Rolls-Royce Ghost and Bentley Flying Spur (ne Continental Flying Spur).

2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid First Test: Powerful USP
