Τhe Hyundai i30 N now has a sportier look courtesy of Prior Design.

The front-wheel drive compact hot hatch has been fitted with a widebody kit made of fiberglass-Dura-Flex, which is aimed at the pre-facelifted version of the car.

Highlights include the new apron and extensions added to the sides of the front bumper, fender flares, new rear bumper extensions, different diffuser finished in glossy black and a more aggressive roof wing, offered as a bundle at €3,999 ($4,912) in Germany. The multi-spoke, rally-style wheels and the special decals round out the design.

While these mods won’t make the i30 N faster, the stock car already offers very decent performance, with the 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint taking 6.4 seconds in the standard variant, which has 246 HP (250 PS / 184 kW). The Performance Package brings 271 HP (275 PS / 202 kW) and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) at 1,450-4,700 rpm, or 279 lb-ft (378 Nm) on overboost, produced between 1,750 and 4,200 rpm, dropping the acceleration time to 6.1 seconds.

The latest iteration, which was presented a few months ago, offers 276 HP (280 PS / 206 kW) and 289 lb-ft (392 Nm) in the Performance Package, which makes it 0.2 seconds faster to 62 mph (100 km/h) than the previous version. The facelifted i30 N is set to launch in Europe in early 2021, with pricing to be announced in due course.It will probably come with a small premium over the outgoing variant, which starts at €33,435.29 in the range-topping form in Germany, or $41,067 at the current exchange rates.

Tesla’s growing Supercharger network is only getting larger, and the EV maker has just announced its largest station yet.

Located in Shanghai, IT features 72 stalls and beats the company’s previous record of 56 stalls found in their Firebaugh station in California. However, unlike the California station, which is outdoors, this new one will be covered.

Below are some photos of the site taken by twitter user @JayInShanghai.

The station is located at Jing’an International Center, an important commercial district in Shanghai. According to Engadget, however, all 72 stalls are said to be using V2 Superchargers that produce up to 150 kW, while the 56 stalls in the California station use 250 kW V3 chargers. That will mean a longer charge time at the Shanghai station, but it might be a moot point for some Tesla owners as only the Model 3 and Model Y support V3 charging in the first place.

The Chinese market, where Tesla delivered over 20,000 locally manufactured Model 3s, plays a key role in the company’s plans. They reportedly manufactured 23,000 EVs overall at the Shanghai-based Gigafactory 3 in November, some of which were sold in the People’s Republic while others were exported.

So far, the company has opened more than 500 Supercharger stations of varying sizes all across China, and they don’t seem so show any signs of slowing down, so we guess we might see the first station with 100 stalls before the end of 2021.

As it turned out, nothing in 2020 was going to be easy. So for its tenth “World’s Greatest Drag Race”, Motor Trend is changing the format a bit.

Instead of featuring 12 cars racing side-by-side, this year there are only eight cars and they’ll be facing off one at a time in an elimination-style bracket.

The cars are the Ram 1500 TRX, Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe, Lamborghini Huracan EVO AWD, Porsche 911 Turbo S, Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51, Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, Acura NSX, and Ferrari F8 Tributo.

In the first heat, the Motor Trend crew tries to keep like with like as much as possible. There are still a few surprises along the way, though. We won’t spoil any results, but horsepower figures don’t tell you as much about performance as you might think.

In fact, one of the most evenly matched races, horsepower-wise, is the Porsche 911 Turbo S vs the Lamborghini Huracan EVO AWD. With just 10 hp separating the two cars, you’d have expected this one to be one of the most hotly contested in the field.

It turns out to very much not be, though, with the drivers estimating a 10-car gap by the end of the race. All of which goes to show you that, although power is good, weight and, more specifically how that weight is distributed, matter a whole lot, too.
