It’s been 25 years since the original launched, but it’s long-awaited successor is finally here. Presenting the all-new 2016 Acura NSX. Making its official debut here in the Motor City, the production version remains true to the concept first displayed at this very show back in 2012. That’s a great thing. However, what’s changed is the powerplant. Instead of the concept’s naturally aspirated V6, Acura has gone with a longitudinally-mounted twin-turbocharged V6 located at mid ship that produces more than 550 horsepower.

Gold-Plated Lamborghini Aventador: There Can Be Only One

It doesn’t matter how outlandish your aftermarket request is, a company can be found to fulfil it. Case in point: this uniquely-styled Lamborghini Aventador. The one-off Raging Bull is the work of Dubai-based Maatouk Design London, who were asked to detail the Italian supercar in gold-plated accents both inside and out by Qatari businessman Mr. Jaber Bin Abdallah Al Hmaidi, who no doubt has some extremely deep pockets.
 

The firm behind the precious metal transformation is more accustomed to designing shields for presidents and souvenir antiques for kings, but they occasionally get asked to work on cars. Opinion will be divided on whether the result looks class or crass, but there’s no debating the quality of the craftsmanship.


 

McLaren P1 GTR: Monterey 2014

McLaren P1 GTR: Monterey 2014

McLaren says the P1 GTR has one goal: “to be the best driver’s car in the world on track.” And with no intentions of making the thing road-legal, McLaren was able to freely put together this design concept, showing a car that, to our eyes, looks absolutely capable of delivering the best in track-focused dynamics.
 

Under the hood, the P1’s 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 has been enhanced to deliver 986 horsepower, an increase of 83 hp versus the engine’s already ludicrous tune in the standard car.
 

McLaren paid extra close attention to improving aerodynamics, with the sole intent of allowing the GTR to offer “more extreme performance,” according to the company’s press release. The front track is wider, with a larger, GT-style splitter. Cooling for the engine and brakes has been improved. The ride height has been lowered. The car’s mirrors are now repositioned on the A-pillar to reduce drag and allow for better visibility. What’s more, the racer rides on a unique set of 19-inch lightweight motorsport alloy wheels, and tire changes are easier managed thanks to an onboard air jacking system derived from the setup used on the 650S GT3 racecar. Active aerodynamics are found out back, too, with a fixed-height wing that uses a hydraulically operated drag reduction system, working in tandem with the active aero flaps placed ahead of the front wheels.

Alongside the P1 GTR launch, McLaren offered up a few details about its new driver program, an exclusive ownership experience that includes specialized driver training, access to a racing simulator and more, all of which is “designed to prepare each driver mentally and physically to fully exploit the abilities of the McLaren P1 GTR.” It sounds pretty intense, with each experience being individually tailored for each specific driver.

It’s no secret that over the last few years Cadillac’s ambition to be a serious rival to the luxury German manufacturers like BMW, Audi and Mercedes in terms of quality, performance, and all-round desireability has resulted in a vast improvement of their vehicles all-round. Their latest creations, the ATS-V Sedan and ATS-V Coupe take direct aim at the BMW M3 and BMW M4 respectivley. A similar battle will take place on the track too, with the ATS-V.R racecar taking on the best from around the world.
 

Of course that’s no easy task considering the competition, but the ATS-V models wade into battle with some serious straight-line performance at their disposal. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.6 litre V6 which produces 455 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of torque. The standard transmission is a six-speed manual, with an 8-speed paddle-shift unit available as an option. Equipped with the 8-speed transmission, the ATS-V hits 60 mph from a standind start in just 3.9 seconds, while the top speed is 185 mph.

A custom-built 845 horsepower, all-wheel drive 1965 Ford Mustang powered by a 6.7 litre Roush V8 engine is pretty crazy. But if you’re Ken Block it’s all in a days work.
 
This highly modified notch-back Mustang, called the Hoonigan RTR, will be the car used in the upcoming Gymkhana SEVEN video. It’s taken over two years to build the car, and the work was completed through a collaborative effort between Ken Block, Hoonigan Racing Division, Vaughn Gittin Jr’s automotive tuning brand RTR. The actual build was done by ASD Motorsports based in Charlotte, North Carolina.
 
Powering the Ford Mustang Hoonigan RTR is a 6.7 litre Roush Yates V8 engine which pumps out 845 hp. The AWD transmission is a one-of-a-kind unit built by the specialists at Sadev.
 
Although from the outside the car looks like a classic Mustang, underneath it’s nothing like it. The chassis is a custom fabricated tubular spaceframe unit, while the retro-inspired bodywork is made from carbon fiber. The wheels are 3-piece 18-inch units wrapped in Pirelli Trofeo R tires moulded from a rubber compound custom mixed for Mr. Block.
 
Speaking about his new car, Ken Block said: “This is a project that I’ve been working on for two years, so to see it fully come to fruition and be able to drive it for Gymkhana SEVEN was absolutely amazing. I also knew that working with Vaughn and his RTR team was the right choice for this project since Mustangs are their world, but they really went above and beyond on this car. The attention to detail with the fabrication and bodywork blows my mind. This is hands-down the best Gymkhana car I’ve had yet.
