AHP Builds a 7,000-RPM, 450ci Monster LS That Makes Over 770 HP on e85!

Big displacement, big compression, and a big tank of e85 help make this stroker LS run wild on Westech's dyno. By now we all know about GM's wonder mill, the venerable LS platform, first launched in 1997. GM has churned out millions of them over the decades in various sizes and iterations, from the smaller 4.8L version to the all-in performance 427-cubic-inch (7L) LS7. And while the LS7 is badass on many levels, even a 427 can benefit from extra displacement. Westech dyno wrangler and co-host of MotorTrend's Engine Masters, Steve Brule loves big-displacement engines, and he knows we love a strong LS engine, so it was a no brainer for him to send us over info on this 450-inch LS engine built by American Heritage Performance (AHP) for their customer Nate Ercse.

Pricing Announced For 2022 Subaru BRZ

The first Subaru BRZ (and its Toyota 86/Scion FRS cousin) coupe came out in 2012 and it was an instant hit, at least within enthusiast circles. Immediately we got protective, wondering if a second generation would come and what it would bring. Thankfully the next-gen BRZ has been officially revealed, as has its Toyota partner. And today we learned the price.

Koenigsegg’s Absurdly Awesome 1,600hp Jesko ‘Megacar’ Gets A Proper Introduction From The Man Himself

Really, in my book, there are two people making cars these days that truly bear watching: Elon Musk and Christian von Koenigsegg. Musk we all know. Swedish impresario Koenigsegg (say “Cone-egg-seg”) is certainly familiar to supercar fans but is a bit more removed from the mainstream, likely as his focus is a bit more... focused on his cars, and he tends not to wander off-task to start civilizations on other planets, tunnel or hyperloop between cities and develop mind-computer linking systems. But who knows, maybe Christian is secretly working on world domination plans or is training to take down Conor McGregor in the octagon. Even money, I’d say.

Acer Chromebook Spin 713 (2021) review: The best premium Chromebook gets better

I was genuinely surprised in May when I heard that Acer was releasing a new Chromebook Spin 713. It had just debuted the first Acer Chromebook Spin 713 last summer, and it was one of the best Chromebooks on the market. For $630, that Chromebook was just about unbeatable between the 13.5-inch touchscreen with 2K resolution and 450-nit brightness and the 10th Gen i5 with 8GB of RAM inside to power through your workload. *"How much could it possibly improve in a year?" I asked myself.

New BMW M4 CSL Could Have 540 HP And RWD But No Manual

New details about the forthcoming BMW M4 CSL have surfaced online and if they turn out to be true, we could be in for something rather special. BMW has been spied testing a new variant of the M4 on a handful of occasions in recent months and a new report claims that the car will pump out 540 hp from a modified version of the standard model’s 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged six-cylinder. It will also be sold exclusively in rear-wheel drive, according to sources, differentiating it from the highest-performing M4 Competition that has an xDrive all-wheel drive system.

VW Atlas Cross Sport GT Concept SUV packs a Golf R heart

Volkswagen spun the smaller Atlas Cross Sport off of its big-daddy three-row family Atlas SUV for 2020, and the sleeker-looking crossover manages to carve out a street presence all its own. Sadly, VW has thus far declined to capitalize on the Cross Sport's additional visual attitude by augmenting its performance credentials. The new Cross Sport GT Concept shown here suggests that the German automaker is starting to see some potential in a higher-performance version.

IndyCar Driver JR Hildebrand Samples the McLaren Elva, Is Absolutely Blown Away

The McLaren Elva Speedster became a Roadster officially back in May of this year, when MSO decided it was time to install a windshield for the car to meet legal requirements in certain U.S. states. Just like its Speedster sibling, the windshield-equipped Elva still doesn’t have a roof, side windows or a rear screen, and it still weighs next to nothing by supercar standards, at just under 2,866 lbs (1,300 kg).
