2021 Ferrari F8 Tributo N-Largo by Novitec
Ferrari launched the F8 Tributo as the 488 GTB’s successor in 2019. It came with the 488 Pista’s drivetrain and underpinnings, but slot itself as an entry-level supercar, unlike the track-ready model. German aftermarket company Novitec quickly snapped the 2020 model year of the F8 Tributo and came out with its own iteration of it, which consisted of a body kit, new wheels, an engine tune-up, etc. Seeing the popularity, Novitec came up with one for the 2021 F8 Tributo as well.
Now, the company has come another version of the 2021 F8 Tributo called the F8 N-Largo. This limited-edition model comes with a new set of wheels, an engine upgrade, and a widebody kit.
2022 Volkswagen Taos
Being the most compact VW SUV you can buy right now, we are genuinely surprised by how good the Taos is. While the Tiguan was the most compact till now, the Taos, being the smallest, is surprisingly comfy in the rear which, in our opinion, is quite rare in this segment. It is decently powerful, packs a good amount of cabin and driver assistance features while holding a cheap price tag of $22,995. So, what do you get for that price?
2022 Nissan Frontier - Driven
The Nissan Frontier has been a trusted workhorse for its owners for a very long time. The truck has been as reliable as it can get. Last year, a Chicago-based delivery driver, Brian Murphy, clocked one million miles on it! However, Nissan took the ‘don’t fix if it ain’t broke’ philosophy a little too seriously. At a time when automakers come up with significant changes even in facelifts every year, Nissan retained the same design language on the Frontier for 15 years! But, for the new, third-gen 2022 model, we get a revamped design that puts it in line with the modern trucks. The company introduced a new engine and gearbox for the previous model year and the same has been carried over this time as well.
The 2022 Nissan Frontier in the top-sped PRO-4X off-road trim arrived at TopSpeed’s headquarters recently, and here’s all you need to know about it.

2022 Manhart RQ 800
The Audi RS Q8 is the most powerful SUV Audi has to offer, and just a detuned version of the Lamborghini Urus. And, despite being a heavy SUV - 5,291 pounds - it still goes from 0 to 60 mph in under 4 seconds. German tuner Manhart found a way to improve things even further, despite not offering any aerodynamic upgrades.
2022 Porsche 911 GT3 By Manthey-Racing
With 502 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque under the hood and a Nurburgring time improved by 17 seconds when compared to its predecessor, the new 911 GT3 is a car that needs no improvement. But, the guys over at Manthey Racing found a way to further improve the performance of the new 911 GT3 - with absolutely no upgrades made under the hood.
2022 Toyota Camry
The Camry is in its eighth generation and is one of Toyota’s best-selling cars outside of the RAV4. The Camry went through a major update for the 2021 model year, but little has changed for 2022. Engine options include your choice of a four-cylinder and a V-6, with the latter offering up 301 horsepower, and there’s an optional AWD system.
2022 Audi SQ5 TDI By ABT Sportsline
The Audi SQ5 is already a significant upgrade over the base Q5. For example, customers in the States will get a significant upgrade of an extra 100 horsepower when choosing the SQ5 over the base Q5. In Europe, though, there are a lot of tuners that will find ways to make this difference even bigger. The last one to do so is ABT Sportsline, who is offering an upgrade kit for the SQ5 TDI - both standard and Sportback versions.
2023 Lotus Emira
The first new car from Lotus in a long time also happens to be the last internal combustion-engined car. Ladies and gentlemen, presenting to you, the Lotus Emira. The Emira was launched earlier this year, but the company didn’t reveal all the details about it. Since then, Lotus has given us the information in chunks, and now, we have all that we need, right from the interior and exterior details to its drivetrain and pricing specs.
2021 Rolls-Royce Dawn Black Badge Overdose By Spofec
The Novitec Group is one of the biggest tuners in the world, and depending on the model it is working on, it has a different name. For example, Novitec Rosso is working on Ferrari models, Novitec Tridente on Maserati, and Spofec with Rolls-Royce models. Spofec’s latest creation is named Overdose and it is based on the Dawn Black Badge. If the name sounds familiar it is because a similar Overdose package was also applied to the standard Dawn a few years back.
2022 Porsche Taycan GTS Sport Turismo
The Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo is the more practical version of Porsche’s first, modern-day EV. More importantly, from 2022, both body styles get a GTS version. The Porsche Taycan GTS is already shaping up to be right in the middle of the Taycan lineup, in terms of price and performance, but it also brings a bit more excitement. Find out how, below.
2022 Porsche Taycan GTS
Although Porsche’s most definitive model is the 911, these days it’s the Taycan that often steals the show. Porsche’s first, modern-day EV gave the Tesla Model S a worthy competitor from an established brand and now, the Porsche Taycan is blessed by the GTS moniker. How does it stack up to the rest of the lineup and does GTS still stand for the sweet spot in Porsche’s lineup?
2022 Porsche 911 GT3 70 Years Porsche Australia Edition
Porsche was founded back in 1931, and 20 years later, on November 1st, 1951 it started to sell cars on the Australian market. The first car introduced to the Australians was the Porsche 356. Now, 70 years later, Porsche marks the event with the launch of the special 911 GT3 70 Years Porsche Australia Edition - a car inspired, of course, by the 356.

2021 G-Power GX5M Bi-Turbo and GP 63 Bi-Turbo
2022 Hyundai Kona
Arriving with significant updates both to the exterior and interior, the new 2022 Kona brings hope not only to younger buyers but also enthusiasts with the newly added Kona N Line and N. While the looks and the aesthetics have taken a sharper appeal, the mechanics have stayed the same, except for the addition of a CVT to the base engine. We think that the new Kona is a breakthrough in how compact SUVs should look and feel, but, should you buy one?
2022 Morgan Plus 8 GTR
Morgan announced its intention to build the Plus 8 GTR back in February when we got a first glimpse of the supercar thanks to a series of sketches. Now, the company announced that the first unit - out of the nine planned to be built - has finally been completed. The rest of the eight cars are all under development and they will be completed in the first quarter of 2022.
2022 Honda Pilot
If you’re in the market for something practical and family-oriented, but don’t want a minivan, then you might want to consider the Honda Pilot because of its good build quality and a roomy cabin. While the exterior remains technically unchanged for 2022, Honda has added LED headlights, an eight-inch touchscreen display, and even eliminated two of the entry-level trims. Still, it manages to be a very successful mid-size eight-seater SUV. How does it perform against the visually exciting Kia Telluride, Volkswagen Atlas, and even the Dodge Durango? Get cozy and read the full review.
2022 Jaguar XJ-C By Carlex Design
Because of the oil crisis and stringent emissions regulations, the mid to late-1970s did not spawn many great American cars. The once-powerful American V-8 engines were choked out of their power and became shadows of their former selves. And while American cars from that era are not particularly desired, nor a preferred platform for any form of restoration, this Jaguar XJ-C by Polish tuner Carlex Design is a vision of what can be considered an epic British muscle car/resto-mod from the mid-1970s.
Retro JDM Comparison: Toyota Supra Vs Nissan 300ZX Vs Mazda RX-7
Japanese sports cars from the 1990s are some of the most recognized ones amongst the car culture. As described by Jeremy Clarkson, in a movie about the Nissan Skyline GT-R, Japan took over the world…and then lost it. While the latter is a topic for another time, what is true for the Skyline also goes for these three – the Toyota Supra, Nissan 300Z, and Mazda RX-7. Our colleagues from “EverydayDriver” - Todd Deeken and Paul Schmucker - take us on a spirited drive with these three JDM legends to determine the pros and cons of each and why they are so desired.
