Despite the occasional rumors, Toyota still hasn’t launched a fourth-gen MR2, and by the looks of it, it won’t, as expanding its GR lineup and working on the new 86 seems to be the main focus when it comes to their fun-to-drive models.

Thus, anyone who wants an MR2 will have to turn to the used car market. If they are into tuning, they could even turn it into something that’s able to challenge some seriously powerful machinery.

Video: Mercedes SLR McLaren Vs. McLaren 540C In Battle Of The Generations

Take this 1993 MR2 for instance, which has had its 3SGTE engine tuned up from around 200 to approximately 600 HP. So, it’s definitely got lots of power, but is it fast enough to beat the most affordable McLaren in production, the 540C, in a straight line?

Well, the British supercar is less powerful, since its twin turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 engine produces ‘only’ 532-horsepower and 398 pound-feet (540 Nm) of torque. It features a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, takes 3.5 seconds to sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) and has a maximum speed of 199 mph (320 km/h).

Now, while the tuned second-gen MR2 has more grunt, the 540C benefits from McLaren’s know-how and was actually built to handle all that power, so can the old Toyota actually pose a threat? The following video answers that question by pitting the two against each other down the quarter-mile and in a 0-100-0 mph test.

 


Lexus 發表最新的 Direct4 電動核心技術,由兩款測試車進行展示,其中房車很明顯為 ES,但神秘休旅測試車卻是第一次現身,以目前旗下產品週期推測,不少人臆測,這款神秘休旅測試車,可能就跟即將到來的下一代 NX 有關。

左邊的神祕休旅測試車,概念雛型預計會在明年第一季亮相。

Lexus 曝光兩款搭載 Direct4 驅動系統的原型車,其中房車造型的明顯是現行 ES 為基礎打造,而另一款 SUV 則是關注重點,此概念車預計會在明年第一季亮相,從車身尺碼看起來符合 NX 中型休旅定位,以目前旗下休旅產品週期,似乎可提前預覽到下一代 NX 走向。

事實上,新一代 NX 敲碗已久、正在蠢蠢欲動,從原廠積極註冊相關車名就可以看出端倪,目前流出的 NX350、NX450h+ 新車名均是在為下一代 NX 作準備,其中 NX350 可望搭載全新的 2.4 升渦輪;450h+ 不意外就是 RAV4 PHV 那套插電式油電系統。

此為下一代 NX 預想圖。

據海外新消息表示,下一代 Lexus NX 問世時間點約在明年,搭載與 RAV4、Harrier 相仿 TNGA 技術底盤平台,預估車身尺碼達 4,630x1,870x1,630mm、軸距達 2,690mm,車長略多 RAV4 一些,介於 RAV4 與 Harrier 之間。

Chinese electric car manufacturer Xpeng has raised $2.16 billion from an upsized share sale.

According to a statement from the company, it recently sold 48 million American depositary shares at $45 a piece, representing a 7.6 per cent discount on its share price as at close on Tuesday, November 8. Auto News reports that the car manufacturer could raise as much as $2.48 billion if it chooses to exercise an over-allotment option to sell an additional 7.2 million shares.

Xpeng raised $1.5 billion in its U.S. IPO in August, debuting at $15 per share. Like a number of other electric car manufacturers that went public this year, the company’s shares skyrocketed in price in the weeks after its IPO, reaching a $74.49 high on November 23.

In the months after going public, Xpeng has unveiled two interesting new vehicles. The first is a flying ‘car’ concept that was unveiled at the Beijing Auto Show back in September. Dubbed the Kiwigogo, it can carry two passengers and fly at an altitude between 5 meters (16.4 feet) and 25 meters (82 feet).

This flying concept resembles a large drone and features eight propellers and a capsule-like frame. It is being developed by Xpeng Heitech, a technology unit owned by Xpeng Motors founder and chief executive He Xiaopeng.

More recently, Xpeng unveiled the P7 Wing Limited Edition, a special variant of its all-electric sedan that’s been equipped with Lamborghini-style scissor doors.
