Volkswagen Arteon R

By info@topspeed.com (Tudor Rus)
The Volkswagen Arteon came to our attention back in 2017, during its unveil at the Geneva Motor Show. Three years into the fastback-shaped sedans career, Volkswagen is planning to give the Arteon a well-deserved nip and tuck which would keep customer interest fresh and address the areas that needed further improvements. With the refreshed Arteon, however, were expecting Volkswagen to introduce a spicier, more performance oriented version under its notorious R badge. Our suspicions are backed up by a recent...

No Swaps: 2020 Honda Civic Type R Sport Line's Small Wing Won't Fit U.S. Cars

Theres no shortage in demand for the Honda Civic Type R in the United States, which is likely why Honda sees no reason to bring the Civic Type R Sport Line and its clipped rear wing to our shores. Thats fine by us, too, as the Type Rs towering tail is a fully functioning piece of equipment that adds more than 60 pounds of downforce at 124 mph. Plus, it further separates the flagship Civic model from its lesser counterparts... [read more]

Would Honda Build an All-Electric Civic Type R?

Honda Civic Type R project leader Hideki Kakinuma passionately believes the company should continue to build high-performance cars, even as it switches its focus to more environmentally friendly powertrains.

What Is Toyota's GR Brand and What Does GR Mean?

Those familiar with Toyota have surely seen its TRD branding on myriad vehicles. That initialism stands for Toyota Racing Development, the companys longstanding tuning and racing arm that takes run-of-the-mill models and turns them into proper off-roaders and, more recently, better-handling versions of cars like the Camry and Avalon. But the Toyota Supra , the brand's newest performance car, is officially called the GR Supra with no TRD letters to be found. So, what gives? GR stands for Gazoo Racing... [read more]

How Fast Can a Lamborghini Go in a Half Mile?

But this video isnt about the Lamborghini Urus. Its about one of Lambos pure-breed, low-slung supercars and its ability to stretch its legs in the half mile.

The 2021 Porsche 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 is a naturally-aspirated version of the existing 718 Boxster. Essentially an update for the current 718 Cayman GTS, the GTS 4.0 ditches the turbocharged, 2.5-liter flat-four engine in favor of a 4.0-liter flat-six mill. The engine is shared with the range-topping 2020 718 Boxster, but detuned in order to slot the GTS 4.0 lower in the lineup.
