2019 Rezvani Tank X revealed with Hellcat engine

The Rezvani Tank X is a just a little bit more extreme than the standard model, and has a price to match. Under the bonnet the Tank X features Fiat Chrysler's supercharged 6.2-litre V8 Hellcat engine making 527kW of power and 963Nm of torque. All of that craziness is delivered to all four wheels via an on-demand all-wheel drive system, which can be disabled for on-road driving.

Can you handbrake turn with an e-parking brake?

Electric park brakes are more compact than their mechanical counterparts, can automatically activate/deactivate, and make life easier for the vast majority of everyday drivers. But they have removed one element of the average petrolhead's (closed road/private course) repertoire – the handbrake turn. In this video, Chris Harris and Rory Reid from Top Gear set out to see what happens if you yank (and hold) the parking brake at high speed in a Volkswagen Golf R.

Mazda CX-5 2.5 turbo petrol shows up on Australian database

A Mazda CX-5 2.5T is all but confirmed for some markets overseas already, and a new entry on an Australian government database suggests we could see such a model in local showrooms very soon. Some keen-eyed CarAdvice readers noticed a new filing from Mazda Australia, detailing a five-strong engine variant line-up – four carryover, one new. (Editor's note: more often than not, an appearance in the Australian government website is a shoo-in for market launch.)

Audi A8 W12 will revive Horch name - report

Audi is reportedly considering exhuming the Horch name for a vehicle to take on Mercedes-Maybach in the ultra-luxury arena. Sources have told Automotive News the Horch name will be applied to a new variant of the Audi A8 powered by a twin-turbo W12 engine. Badging on the flanks or C-pillar, as well as extra equipment and styling tweaks, will likely distinguish the Horch from lesser models in the range.

Audi RS4 v Porsche 911 GTS drag race - video

Central to the appeal of the Audi RS4 Avant is the fact it offers sports car performance with a usable, practical boot. Just how much of sports car is it compared to, say, a Porsche 911 GTS though? The team at CarWow endeavoured to find out. With twin-turbo, six-cylinder engines (and Volkswagen Group backing) the RS4 and 911 have a little bit in common. They also both make 331kW of power, although the Audi channels it to all four wheels. Which is quicker? We won't spoil the result.
