It arrives with the most powerful engine fitted to an entry-level Corvette, with a 6.2-litre V8 producing 495hp! The question is, with power that’s similar to a Ferrari 458, and a starting price of $60,000, which would you choose?! Join Mat for his latest Top 10 to find out!

Let’s take a close look at the brand new Ferrari SF90 Stradale! It’s Ferrari’s first series production hybrid, boasting 1,000hp with a hybrid V8 setup, and with an entirely new dashboard and driving modes for the driver. Join me now though to discover the car in detail and even have a sound check from that new engine! The Ferrari SF90 Stradale stands for Scuderia Ferrari 90th anniversary and Stradale – the Italian word for road. With an enlarged 4.0l TT V8 making almost 800hp and a little over 200hp coming from 3 electric motors for a total of 1000PS, it also is the first Ferrari to offer a front wheel drive set up with 15 miles of eDrive range running entirely electrically. On the exterior, the car also creates 380kg of downforce at 250km/h owing to aero that’s integrated into the bodywork. From a performance perspective, 0-100km/h is dispatched in just 2.5 seconds and it will go on to a top speed of 340km/h (211mph). On the inside, the driver is greeted by a new 16″ curved display screen along with controls throughout with a new touch display interface. On the steering wheel are the options for Qualifying, Performance, Normal and eDrive modes, along with the traditional Manettino modes, now visually electrified in the display too. For the drive selector, the panel is created in the style of an old gated manual shifter, a positive nod to Ferraris of old. The car is on display here at the brand new HR Owen Ferrari showroom in London’s Berkeley Square in Mayfair, where we can also explore the Monza SP1, the first member of the Icona series. For a quick tour as well, the showroom offers a lounge style facility for customers to experience the brand and to configure their future vehicles. As a special bonus, we can also have a quick sound check and hear the new engine firing into life off the hybrid system and the grumbles of a few gentle blips too. Initial impressions from my side are incredibly positive; knowing that the car comes in at under £400,000 it really is breathtaking performance offered at a price point that other marques haven’t really been able to content with up to this point. The times are exciting for Ferrari and the SF90 is a very intriguing vehicle that I cannot wait to drive in the future.

De Tomaso is back! The marque famous for the 1972 Pantera has been brought back by the same people behind the Apollo IE and it’s called the De Tomaso P72.
Restoration and first road test in over 30 years of legendary Cizeta Moroder V16T, the only badged Cizeta Moroder, and 1 of only 10 cars ever built.
Now that my F430 is going to be sold by the end of the month, I needed to get another supercar otherwise I would be sad and have to change my channel’s name to Normal Guy Normal Car. I have been watching the market for quite a while and I believe one particular model is near the bottom of it’s pricing. But let’s be honest, I just want this car because it’s amazing and it’s the car I always have wanted. I captured some of my phone calls with multiple dealerships and how boring and frustrating that process can be. I will have a follow up video explaining how I’m paying for the car and how the financing will work.

The Lamborghini Huracan Performante is no slouch out of the box; it has a 630 HP V10 mounted in the middle, active aerodynamics, and all-wheel-drive. It is the fastest Lamborghini ever made, around any road course in the world. But VF Engineering takes cars with more chassis than engine, and gives them the power they need. So they supercharged it. The result is 870 HP and 630 lb/ft of torque at the crank. We wanted to try it, so we went to a Speed Ventures Track Day at Auto Club Speedway!
Test Notes: At the end of this video, the vehicle displays a “Engine Bay Temperature” warning. The “Engine compartment temperature warning” is independent of engine oil and coolant temperatures, and not related to engine performance, but rather an indication that ambient temperatures within the engine bay are higher than expected for the driving conditions.
After further examination it was determined to be related to the oil fill level (being too high) and the radiant heat generated by the upper oil reservoir (located in the engine bay). Once the oil level was corrected, the issue was resolved.
