The 2020 Chevy Camaro Turbo 1LE

Wait, hold up, a turbo rear-drive coupe with a performance package against a Camry? Yes, actually. Since these are sporty versions of their kinds, let’s compare some core specs:

Ford GT reimagined with 700bhp Le Mansory conversion

Though limited-run models from Italy are made in fewer numbers, the latest Ford GT has become renowned for its strenuous application process and subsequent exclusivity. If this didn’t make it exclusive enough, however, three owners can now send their cars to Mansory for a full conversion, drastically changing design and increasing performance.

This is far from a mere ‘decal and wheels’ conversion, with seemingly every exterior component replaced with a remodelled Mansory counterpart. Width has increased by 5cm thanks to the use of new carbonfibre bodywork, and almost every unpainted section now bears Mansory’s trademark checkered carbon weave.

TVR is back with Cosworth power and Gordon Murray Design |

Despite frequent appearances at motor shows since its 2017 announcement, the model to revive TVR is still yet to enter production. First cars were penned for delivery in early 2019, but its Welsh Ebbw Vale factory remains untouched, with a substantial cash injection required for it to made operational. 

A recent document reveals that TVR is aiming to raise £25m to facilitate the growth of the brand, a sum that would likely be used to bring its factory into an operable state. The document also outlines the potential for hybrid and full-electric variants of the Griffith in the future. However, there are no details on these models as of yet.

David Freiburger Talks Roadkill and What It’s Like Producing So Many Shows on the MotorTrend App

I still view myself as a gearhead journalist, but the reality is that I’m a TV guy. I’ve recently found myself rapt with nostalgia for the early-’90s days of being a HOT ROD magazine staffer under the wing of Gray Baskerville, mingling with the pioneers of the industry, hanging out at the Street Machine Nationals in Du Quoin, Illinois, and being a part of the founding days of the Fastest Street Car Shootout. My video and TV followers are a younger crowd oblivious to such things. I meet glazed eyes when I discuss my editorial history at HOT ROD, HOT ROD Deluxe, Rod & Custom, Car Craft, and 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazines.

Inversely, I’m curious if you readers understand what I’m up to. Many don’t realize I’m no longer involved in HOT ROD editorial, other than this column. That ended three and a half editors ago as

2020 Bentley Bentayga revealed | evo

It’s fair to say that the Bentley Bentayga has been a controversial model for the luxury British brand, but while it’s certainly had its critics, no one can argue the fiscal merits of a high-margin SUV amongst a range of saloons and coupes. So, having been on sale now for over five years with few changes aside from an expansion of the available powertrains, Bentley has finally given the Bentayga an aesthetic update to suit.

An update similar in principle to the change Bentley made between the first and second-generation Continental GT, the new Bentayga amounts to a major refresh of the current model rather than an all-new offering. It continues to share the same underlying (Audi-designed) chassis and powertrains, but wraps them in fresh sheet metal which, although it looks similar, is quite different in the details. It has a more contemporary design that mimics the new
