Your dream became our reality as we sat down behind the wheel of the 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB. Yes, it’s just as fantastic as you would imagine, and we highly recommend it if you have the means.
It’s only been six months since Ken Block released the “Gymkhana 8” film but it appears work’s already begun on the ninth installment. Spotted with a helicopter in Buffalo, New York, Block is either scouting a new location or already shooting. Either way, expect lots of tire smoke and destruction along with incredibly skilled driving.
While we know General Motors is working on a mid-engine C8 Corvette, it appears the C7 model won’t go quietly into that good night as a ZR1 prototype has been spotted. Expect this new range topper to have at least 700-horsepower from a supercharged V-8 engine, a big wing, and a price tag probably over $100,000.
If you’re disappointed that BMW still doesn’t make an M7 we have good news for you: Alpina is launching its new 2017 B7. After driving it on the road and track we can say it’s basically the M7 you’ve been longing for.
Tesla announced new range-topping Model S and Model X models dubbed P100D. Claimed to be the fastest accelerating car and SUV you can buy, the models each have a 100-kwh battery pack. The announcement wasn’t all that well received by the automotive media.
We learned a fun fact regarding the new 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1: It can run 0-60 mph in first gear. That’s right, there will be no need to shift as you rip off your acceleration run.
