This old Russian tank finally starts back up after decades of sitting in a barn. World War II was an extremely innovative time for American artillery and military-grade weaponry production and distribution. This became especially prevalent within the automotive industry as the entire sector was fighting to end one of the worst wars that the Allied forces had ever been involved in. The constant battle of the mid to late 1930s and 1940s to be the most significant technological innovator of the era birthed vehicles such as this tank. Tales of a storied war-riddled past are written all over this tank in the form of aged body marks and dents all over. Let's take a look at this incredible tank from the early 1930s.
The Lamborghini Aventador is no longer available to order. This Italian supercar, famously named after a Spanish fighting bull, has been around for the better part of a decade, and has been sold in numerous configurations, including the Aventador S, Aventador SVJ, and Aventador Ultimae. The Ultimae is officially the last-ever Aventador, but Lamborghini promised that the V12 engine will survive, and future models such as the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 will make use of hybrid technology. This is truly the end of an era, and it's the last time we'll see an unassisted naturally-aspirated V12 engine do its thing. But Lamborghini is promising big things, and we're excited.
Can it really be 30 years ago today? Unfortunately, it can! On October 20 1991 Ayrton Senna became Formula 1 world champion for a third and what turned out to be final time in a McLaren powered by a V12 engine, marking something of a full-stop for this most celebrated of powerplant configurations.
Few, if any, can hold a candle to Ferrari when it comes to building evocative cars. The sight of a prancing horse emblem will rouse the attention of anyone with a heartbeat, and the Ferrari Monza SP1 is possibly one of the best-looking and most exotic machines the company has ever built. Forming part of a new special vehicle series called 'Icona', Italian for 'icon', the Monza SP1 is roofless, doesn't come with a windshield or any notable comfort features, and, unlike the McLaren Elva and Aston Martin V12 Speedster, only has one seat. But it does come with the factory's most potent 6.5-liter V12 gas engine under the hood producing 799 horsepower, a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, and rear-wheel driving, possibly making this one of the best Ferraris ever built. In a world slowly being dominated by electric cars, this cutting-edge nod to the heydays of open-top racing is a breath of fresh air. Only 499 Monzas - including the two-seater SP2 that we review separately - will be built, and while neither is street-legal in the US, you can bet your bottom Dollar American collectors will be lining up to buy one regardless.
The Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series is the ultimate version of the R230 SL (2001-2011) and a pretty rare one since it was built in 350 units. The exclusivity and the desirability of AMG’s twin-turbo V12 have caused prices to increase lately, with the pictured example selling for an impressive $405,000 in Bring A Trailer‘s online auction.
Over the last few months, Ferrari has been caught testing mysterious prototypes based on the LaFerrari. Initially, it looked like Ferrari was testing mules for the LaFerrari's replacement, but it's now believed they were test mules for the new Icona supercar debuting next month. A successor to the Ferrari SP1...
Classic cars’ performance might have dulled over the years, but their looks and sounds still wow enthusiasts. And for many, classic Ferraris are some of the best expressions of all three of those things. That explains why these vintage exotics often carry stratospheric price tags and are often garaged to protect their owners’ investments. So, it’s a joyous occasion when one of these cars gets to stretch its legs and sing. And that’s exactly what Jay Leno recently did with a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT PF Cabriolet.
T.50 development continues, GMA debuts one of its XP prototypes at Goodwood during its 78th Members’ Meeting. It hasn’t been long since we first saw (and heard) the T.50’s powertrain mule run up to its 12,100rpm redline, but Gordon Murray Automotive has now shown off a couple of its calibration prototypes in public, wowing crowds at Goodwood’s 78th Members’ Meeting. Driven by four-time Indy Car champion and former evo columnist Dario Franchitti, he took to the wheel of one, XP5 specifically, on track giving both spectators and some customers their first look of the exciting new hypercar in action.
A 2016 Ferrari LaFerrari might become the most expensive 21st century car sold at auction. Not any Ferrari, but the Ferrari, is poised to break an auction record when it hits the block at RM Sotheby’s upcoming London sale. That’s the English translation of the LaFerrari, the name of the...
There are countless failed concepts for every production-spec supercar that we get to drool over on public roads. As with any industry, introducing a new product is a gamble where success or abject failure depends on various factors. Market reactions, design flaws, and production costs are just some of the...

After being on sale for ten years, the current-generation Lamborghini Aventador's lifecycle is coming to an end. Fittingly, Lamborghini's most successful V12-powered supercar is getting the send-off it deserves with the Aventador Ultimae. Limited to just 350 units, the Aventador Ultimae marks the end of an era as Lamborghini's last naturally-aspirated V12 supercar.
The X3 NFC drops the F2 Pro’s fancy Snapdragon 865 SoC and X55 5G modem combo for Qualcomm’s latest 4G chip, the Snapdragon 732G. But don’t run away screaming just yet. While this processor doesn’t deliver flagship graphics performance, it’s gaming optimized (hence the G), and it feels super quick in day-to-day use. Plus it’s still paired with 6GB RAM and up to 128GB storage and supports microSD.
Rnb superstar The Weeknd is a passionate collector of luxury cars. Among his select collection is the Aventador SVJ, Mercedes G63, and the Bentley Mulsanne.
This incredible BMW supercar Is sporting a massive V12 powerhouse and plenty of driver-focused performance to put a smile on your face for years to come. The 1990s were an excellent time for the iconic BMW brand; the creation of cars such as the E36, E46, and Z3 boosted sales internationally. In addition, BMW doubled down on the focus on performance which was highly prevalent with past performance-based BMW models as the brand quickly became the fastest European brand of the 1990s in many racing fields. While the German icon is known worldwide for its extensive lineup of sports cars and high-performance economy/luxury cars, supercars are not typically what you hear many enthusiasts talking about when discussing their favorite BMWs. This car changes that entirely with the sleek, intelligent design of a classic ‘90s BMW and the massive powerhouse of a German supercar stallion.
We've waited a long time to hear that Cosworth V12 rev to its 12,100-rpm redline. It's no secret that Gordon Murray's new T.50 is set to be one of the better supercars ever built. With an advanced fan-based active aero system, a Cosworth-built 3.9-liter V12, and a six-speed manual, it's a recipe that just can't go wrong. We've seen plenty of behind-the-scenes development clips up to this point, but what we really haven't witnessed is a full-blown stint of the vehicle on track. That's finally changed.
Late last month, Rolls-Royce unveiled something quite unexpected. The first-ever all-electric series production vehicle from the luxury brand, called Spectre, was shown far sooner than anyone thought. It may still be covered in camouflage, but there wasn't enough to hide the fact it's a big coupe with a long hood and fastback styling. The usual brand styling elements, namely a large grille section, remain. All in all, we very much like what we're seeing. But what about another sensory area, specifically hearing?
Not long ago Rolls-Royce officially confirmed that it’s working on a fully electric car that should arrive in a few years. That wasn’t necessarily news, as the British luxury company hinted at such a possibility a long time ago. It’s a natural move for a brand that’s known for its quiet, effortless cars. Those are attributes shared with most electric powertrains. However, according to the CEO of the company, the switch to electric powertrains might make some cars too noisy.
Gordon Murray Automotive continues to put the upcoming T.50 through its paces during a rigorous round of development and recently brought a prototype to the Goodwood Members’ Meeting event in the UK. The experimental prototype driven by Dario Franchitti around the circuit appears to be fitted with all of its...
