The Polestar 2 BST 270 is a 500-HP EV, and it looks extremely fun to drive, especially around the Ascari Race Track. Polestar’s chief test driver recently got behind the wheel to show off just what the electric vehicle is capable of when put to the test. The BST Edition 270 is based on the 2023 Polestar 2 and is limited to just 270 units worldwide. With so few units, there are only so many people able to take it for a spin. Lucky for you (and us,) you can get a pretty decent idea, right here. Enjoy.
This artist exploded some of your favorite racing legends so you don’t have to. Don’t worry though – they’re just models to scale. Fabian Oefner shows us some of the most iconic cars as we’ve never seen them before. Check out the delicate process (with great attention to detail) right here:
Actor Jim Caviezel paid a visit to Jay Leno on the most recent episode of Jay Leno’s Garage. He brought with him his 2014 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake. The proud owner has turned the car into a tribute to honor the members of SEAL Team Six aboard Extortion 17. Caviezel was inspired to do this by a novel detailing the experience the SEALs had serving their country. The spear belonging to Chris Kyle sits beneath the hold along with the names of 19 fallen SEAL team members who lost their lives in Extortion 17.
The actor has been heavily involved with the military in the past. After Caviezel helped raise money for soldiers returning home, he wanted to do something more, which is why he teamed up with car designer Chip Foose. Together, they created the Shelby Mustang you see here. In addition to serving as a beacon of remembrance, the car also packs some serious power. The GT500 features a 5.8-liter supercharged V-8 producing 850 horsepower. Other noteworthy specs include “sword-tipped” wheels designed by Foose, wide-body rear fenders, and wheel caps. There is also a special emblem on the rear which incorporates the Extortion 17 trident, a knight’s helmet, and the American flag. You can’t miss this one, watch the episode, right here.
No one expected the Plymouth Valiant to leave a mark on the muscle car industry back in the 80s. It wasn’t built to go fast, and wasn’t designed to be too easy on the eyes. The Valiant was the go-to car for those who wanted smooth, reliable transport. Owner Shannon Hudson bought the green machine featured in this episode of THE DRIVE for $400. Yes, you read that right, $400. Hudson has had the ride for almost 20 years and has turned it into one of the coolest MOPAR A Bodies the industry has seen. Check it out, right here.
The 2019 ZR1 hit the strip, and it did not disappoint. Check out the video below thanks to Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds on YouTube, and watch the ride perform a standing mile test. Next up: the 2.3 and 2.7 mile top speed tests! More to come.
