All that power is managed by a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission with a high-performance clutch. A more rigid & wider front-end improves G forces in the corners. Sport brakes and 19-inch forged aluminum wheels wearing Bridgestone sneakers complete the package on this drift-ready daily driver.

Audi Unveils Faster, More Powerful 2022 RS3

With the roll-out of the 2022 RS3, Audi reveals it has once again trimmed, tweaked & upgraded their smallest performance car with attention focused on the drive. With increased torque (& a new torque vectoring rear axle) from its 401-horsepower motor, it delivers a very respectable 0-62 time of 3.8 & top speeds hitting 180. The stance looks a bit meaner than the outgoing model & so does the blacked-out grill.

BMW Introduces 2022 M4 Competition Convertible xDrive

The 2022 BMW M4 Competition Convertible xDrive is the long way of saying there’s a new M4. The all-wheel drive open-top coupe is powered by a S58 3.0-liter straight-six tuned to output 503 horsepower. Which it sends through a 8HP eight-speed automatic transmission—with sixth gear being the direct drive. Top speed, 174 MPH. Though a manual shift model will not be offered, the front-axle can be disengaged to convert it to a pure rear-wheel drive experience. Sounds fun.
