2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8.R race car unveiled

The Chevrolet Corvette C8.R race car has been unveiled alongside the Stingray convertible. Designed for the GT Le Mans racing series, the C8.R follows the mid-engine format of the road-going Corvette range. While the race car bears a very close visual resemblance to the street-legal coupe, practically every exterior panel looks to be unique. The front and rear wheel arches are wider, and there are new wing mirrors, latches for the bonnet and rear engine cover, and plenty of exposed screws.

Volkswagen has released a clip that’s anything but. Full of action movie jump cuts and a suspenseful score, the video shows Romain Dumas setting a new record time up Tianmen Mountain Big Gate Road in China with the electric Volkswagen ID.R race car.

Porsche Type 64: Auction blunder sees historic racer unsold at Monterey

The auction of a car designed by Ferdinand Porsche in Nazi Germany resulted in what could be politely described as a snafu or, in the words of one auction patron, a “massive f*** up”. The 1939 Type 64 – retroactively and somewhat controversially referred to as a Porsche – failed to find a buyer at the RM Sotheby’s auction in Monterey, California over the weekend, according to Bloomberg.

BMW M2 'GT4' teased

BMW M Motorsport has previewed a new 'entry-level' race car for 'grassroots motorsport' based on the M2 Competition. We've unofficially dubbed it as the 'M2 GT4', given the racing class' entry-level positioning in FIA competitions and the overall look of the track car, which doesn't appear too modified from the standard road-going version.
