Christened the 675LT, it's loaded with enough technology and boasts enough performance to be a serious contender right off the trailer, and although success in racing is never guaranteed, betting against McLaren has often been shown to be a fool's errand.

By - February 24, 2015 31 Pictures
With a 577-hp biturbo V8 powering a 0-60 mph time of just 3.9 seconds, the Mercedes S63 AMG 4Matic Coupe isn't exactly a slouch. Or at least it didn't seem that way before German tuner Brabus turned it into an out-and-out power-n-speed machine. The S63-based Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe bolts to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and doesn't stop accelerating until the needle hits 217 mph. Read More

McLaren is really taking the time to pat itself on the back for winning Le Mans back in 1995. The P1 GTR is being billed as an homage to the F1 GTR Le Mans winner, and we thought that'd be the extent of its anniversary celebration. This week, though, it revealed the 650S Le Mans, a special edition designed to give another hat tip to the past. The upgraded version of the mid-level McLaren borrows design cues from the F1 GTR.

California startup Renovo Motors showed off the ageless Shelby body and electric powertrain of its Renovo Coupe at last year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, but it waited until this year's CES to open up the doors to the car's high-tech interior. Now that it has, it's put together all the pieces of an authentically-bodied Shelby with 500-hp electric powertrain and cutting-edge Nvidia Tegra X1-powered infotainment system ... a strange but alluring combination if ever there was one.

By - January 13, 2015 57 Pictures
The Acura NSX finally made it into production specification today in Detroit and, as expected, the wait has been worthwhile. The internal combustion engine is now hyperventilating with twin-turbos instead of the naturally-aspirated version we saw previously, it boasts three electric motors and pushes more than 550 hp through a nine-speed dual clutch transmission, while the price tag will be in the vicinity of US$150,000 when it lands later this year.
