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

New 318bhp Volkswagen Tiguan R to join Arteon R and Golf R

The Volkswagen Tiguan did something quite remarkable in the year 2018. It, rather than the Golf, was Volkswagen’s highest-selling single model. This came despite the Golf having one of the most recognisable names in the business with over 45 years of consistent market presence, yet such is the power of SUVs (especially in markets outside of Europe) that the Tiguan managed to grab that top spot. As such, it comes as little surprise to see Volkswagen making the most of this market trend by expanding the Tiguan range during its midlife update with new eco-friendly e-hybrid models, and a flagship R model.

The Tiguan’s core engine range will be mostly unchanged, consisting of VW’s new 1.5-litre EVO and 2-litre turbocharged petrol fours. Also in the range is a 2-litre turbo diesel, which is now fitted with the latest dual-stage catalytic reduction system that significantly reduces the amount of nitrogen

A Historical Timeline of Lamborghini Prices

Timeless as a Martin Scorsese film, Lamborghini is one of the world’s most legendary marques, producing some of the most sought-after cars in history. But for as much as we write about them, talk about them, and critique them, the question from people on the street is always the same when you climb out of the driver’s seat: Hey, so, how much is a Lamborghini?

First, a short history. The raging bull has serious roots, almost literally: It entered the world in the form of a farm tractor called the Lamborghini Carioca on February 3, 1948. With 2000 lire in his pocket and the enlistment of three mechanics, Ferruccio Lamborghini created a revolutionary agriculture machine that would change his career trajectory. High demand from Italians affirmed the Carioca tractor’s instant success, and as a result, Lamborghini founded his first company, designated Lamborghini Trattori.

Consistent with the
