There are a lot of sports cars on the road that make claims of being street-legal race cars. Few of those claims are as legitimate as the Radical RXC's. A Le Mans prototype-inspired racer that looks like it was plucked from the circuit and slapped with a pair of license plates, the RXC is the car that a company named "Radical" calls its most advanced ever.

After close to a decade and a half, including a run of super-limited editions and one-offs, Pagani has released its final Zonda. Or so it seems. A "car designed to amaze both on the track and in a car collection," the Zonda Revolucion brings the legendary line to a close with a bang. Read More
Before there was a Porsche Panamera plug-in, there was the 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid. And while the Panamera S E-Hybrid might make it to market first, the 918 is on the way, too.

Fifty years ago, a young, ambitious Italian farmboy by the name of Ferruccio Lamborghini decided his talent for mechanical enhancement, engineering and marketing would be better served designing high-performance automobiles. Since 1963 Lamborghini has seen its share of bad relationships and financial hardship, but has still managed to create some of the most extreme and immediately recognizable vehicles on the road today. Here's a look back at the Raging Bull's major achievements as the company celebrates its 50th anniversary. Read More
As Porsche celebrates 50 years of its iconic 911, it’s only fitting that the fastest and most advanced models of the line-up should get a makeover. The next-gen 911 Turbo and Turbo S have received several technical revisions to enhance handling and make the fast even faster, with the S model leaping from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds. This hi-tech generation is similar to its ancestors in name only. Read More
Speak of the devil ... With a lot of world record talk going on lately, SSC managed to slip its way back into the headlines, making us wonder where the finely sculptured road-bullet known as the Tuatara is. SSC showed it nearly two years ago and we haven't heard much about it since. As if in answer to that question, SSC dropped a little "hello" by way of a press release saying that it's moving into the final phases of Tuatara development. It hooked the seething twin-turbo V8 engine to the dyno and is all too happy to share the results. Read More
After weeks of teasing by boutique Chinese/Italian auto designer Icona, the high performance, hyper-red Vulcano hybrid has finally been unveiled (in front of a snack bar) at the Shanghai Auto Show. Based on initial images and performance specs, the one-off GT seems to live up to its magma-inspired moniker. Read More
Bugatti may have had its production car world speed record thrown into question, but it didn't take it sitting down. It picked itself up, grabbed one of its newest cars, and went out and set a new record. While it's a step down from the overall record, Bugatti's latest feat crowns its Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse roadster the world's fastest open-topped production car. Read More
Weber Sportcars promised to unseat the Bugatti Veyron as the world’s fastest street-legal sports car with its Faster One (F1) back in 2008. It seems the Swiss car maker still has the title in its sights, releasing the specifications for the latest iteration of its two-seater mid-engine sports car with the claim that it's the fastest street-legal sports car in the world.
