There are as many turns in that headline as there are on the Rallycross circuit these cars compete on. A Lamborghini is perhaps the last car I’d expect to see on the Rallycross circuit. And indeed, it is not as dominant as you’d expect a car with a V10 making about 500 hp. Though, this […] More…

It may not seem like a very interesting test, but keep in mind that when CarWow raced the Aventador SV against the Huracan Performante, the smaller V10 car won. So, even though it’s the baby in the lineup, it’s exceedingly fast. However, despite doing everything in its power to keep up, the Huracan just can’t […] More…

Audi is giving the RS5 a mild nip and tuck for 2021. That means a new grille and an improved infotainment system.

The word “Sportback” must be getting tired with all the heavy lifting it’s been doing this decade. The latest new thing it means is “somewhat coupey, somewhat hatchey, addition to the Q5 line-up.” I guess it does sound better than that. Shortly following the Q5’s facelift, Audi has revealed the new for 2021 model, which […] More…
