Lexus LC500 v LFA drag race - video

The Lexus LC500 is the Japanese luxury marque's current flagship sports car. Here at CarAdvice we reckon it's pretty damn gorgeous and one of the brand's most exciting models for a long time. Before the LC, though, there was the brilliant and ultra-exclusive LFA, with its naturally-aspirated V10 that sang all the way to 9000rpm...

The Porsche Targa High Country Tour in a 718 Cayman GTS

Try doing that on a public road, though, and say goodbye to your car and licence. But what if you could do all that legally? The Targa Australia rally series is just that...

Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport: Track-only special revealed

Porsche might have stolen the show with its new '992' 911 Carrera S in Los Angeles, but it hasn't given up on the current-generation car quite yet.

The latest Honda Civic Type R has already established itself as one of the meanest, quickest hatchbacks going around – then again, it would want to be, given its storied lineage. Along with a history of quick, front-drive hatchbacks, Honda has the S2000 in its back catalogue.
