A dispute in the courts has caused these old cabs to become stuck in time. At a farm in Xerém, Brazil, which is in the country's Rio de Janeiro federative unit is now a graveyard for around 60 cars sitting bumper to bumper and door to door. They're mostly 1992 and 1993 Chevrolet Chevette L 1.6/S and Chevette Junior 1.0 models, in addition to a few examples of the Volkswagen Gol and a Chevy Corsa. The machines sit under a shed, which also houses the pigsty of a small family of piglets. Our pals at Motor1.com Brazil found this bizarre collection, and naturally, they had to film, photograph, and write about the scene. The angular shapes of the Chevrolet Chevettes reinforce the impression that you are looking at in a life-size Tetris game. Until a few weeks ago, the visual shock was even greater: there were 96 cars under this roof. All the cars are retired cabs – or ex-combatants, in Rio de Janeiro-speak. They were part of the large fleet owned … [Read more...] about Barn Find: Over 60 Chevrolet Chevettes Found In Brazilian Shed

The slowest Model 3 versus the fastest Ram truck. The Tesla Model 3 and the Ram 1500 TRX are on opposite sides of the spectrum. One is an all-electric sedan and the other is a supercharged behemoth of a truck. Regardless of their differences, doing a 0-60 mph comparison should be interesting. That's what Everyman Driver did on this YouTube channel. Although, it wasn't really fair for the Model 3 . The presenter got a 2021 Ram 1500 TRX, which makes 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque from its 6.2-liter supercharged V-8, and his personal Tesla Model 3 Standard Range (not Plus). In the video, he said his Model 3 produces 258 hp and 317 lb-ft. That sounds correct, but since Tesla doesn't advertise Model 3 power output, it could have changed over time with OTA updates. He also doesn't say how old his Model 3 is. The presenter used a Solo GPS timer to measure the 0-60 mph runs. He did four runs with each vehicle in opposite directions of the road he was on. He mentioned … [Read more...] about Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Vs Ram 1500 TRX: 0-60 MPH Comparison
You can actually buy this menacing tank destroyer. Whenever the word “Hellcat” comes up in a discussion between two gearheads, the 707-hp Charger and Challenger pair springs to mind. However, Dodge wasn’t the first car manufacturer to use the nameplate as back in the 1940s there was a Buick-badged Hellcat. That being said, it took the shape of a frightening tank destroyer and went on to become the “fastest full-tracked, armored fighting vehicle of World War II,” according to Auctions America. Manufactured only in 1943 and 1944 by Buick, the M18 was built in over 2,500 units. One of them will soon be up for grabs for anyone willing to pay the estimated auction price of $275,000 to $350,000. Tipping the scales at roughly 20 tons, this very special Hellcat is about 10 times heavier than a Charger SRT Hellcat and is considerably slower as it will only do 55 mph (88 kph) whereas the Dodge maxes out at 204 mph (328 kph).

Hypercar TOYOTA - Toyota GR010 Hybrid 7. Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi, Jose Maria Lopez 8. Sebastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima, Brendon Hartley Toyota has been WEC's mainstay in the top class for several years and was 'rewarded' for its persistence by getting a clear run at three consecutive Le Mans wins, while preparing for the new Hypercar era with the GR010 Hybrid. In anticipation of fellow factory competition from the likes of Peugeot (2022) and Ferrari (2023) Toyota will once again be its own biggest rival, with an another intra-team battle anticipated between the world championship-winning #7 crew and the Le Mans winners in car #8, all of which remain on board for the new campaign. For Toyota, getting a handle on its all-new car, weeding out potential reliability issues, will be key in holding off the competition, particularly from Alpine. ALPINE - Alpine A480-Gibson 36.
