The Bugatti Chiron doesn’t operate like other cars. It’s on a different plane of speedxistence. So it’s funny to see one testing on the Nürburgring, as funny to see as it is wonderful to hear.
It’s hard not to love nervous, spritely, wheel-hopping hot hatches. And few are more nervous, spritely or wheel-hoppy as a 2000s Honda Civic Type R. Sadly, for one CTR owner on the ‘Ring, things got a bit too hot.
The C7 Corvette (grr) is a fun, long-legged sports car that will happily eat up a road trip, dance through a back road and shred some tires at will. The Z06 (grunt) is like that, but with more speed and more overheating. Here, now, is the ZR1 (grr grunt urgh grr) presumably not christmas-tree’ing the dashboard with…
Audi, for reasons beyond my comprehension, is testing the Q8 full-size SUV fastback thing, which is bad enough as it is, and it’s doing it on the Nürburgring.
Running a car on the Nürburgring poses some logistical challenges for carmakers. Crashes, more crashes and car-consuming fires come to mind. Presumably that was the driving force behind this rig. The Bugatti Chiron uses it to simulate the g-forces alone of a ‘Ring run and test for oil starvation issues without having…
Yesterday this video popped up, showing a ‘mystery EV’ tearing across the infamous Nurburgring Nordschleife, completely undisguised but utterly unrecognized. A little digging and I’ve pinned down what it is.
This is Lamborghini. A certainty. A possibility? Perhaps more. Could it be more? Maybe it could be more? Or.........less.
The GTS is the sweet spot in the 911 range. Not quite as bonkers as the Turbo, more practical than the GT3. For the first time, the GTS will come with a turbocharged engine, and maybe (?) possibly (?) conceivably (?) the same gearbox from the 911 R.
Lamborghinis are all the same. Fast. Loud. Also quite fast. Or are they?
It looks like Koenigsegg crashed the hell out of a One:1 on the Nürburgring. Check out the photos from a maybe record run over here at MotorAuthority.
There’s no more ultimate bragging right in the automotive space than a Nürburgring lap record, but on the heels of the crash that claimed a life the people who run the ‘Ring have passed down a ban on manufacturer lap records for the remainder of the year.
Some of you noticed an extremely fast Ford Focus chasing the Ferrari 458 Italia in the first installment of /RING TESTED. Here's that car on a hot lap around the Nürburgring showing just how fast FWD can be.
If you're at work, creating a spreadsheet or prepping a vital organ for transplant, please put down what you're doing. This 2015 Nismo GT-R's record Nürburgring lap is worth it.
Yesterday, Nissan shut down the Nurburgring, hired safety marshalls and set up timing beacons in order to have a very hot lap with the 2014 Nismo GT-R. It's unclear whether they succeeded with their record attempt, but the car sure noticeably different from previous prototypes.
The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is the world's fastest production car, with an unchallenged top speed of 268 mph. Other cars may be faster in certain ways, but it's the king until someone knocks off its crown.
McLaren Automotive released a new video claiming they ran the Nürburgring's Nordschleife in a lap time of 7:28 in the MP4-12C with Sport Auto executive editor Horst von Saurma at the wheel. It's not an official manufacturer ring run, so naturally it raises some questions, especially for those who don't know Horst…
