2025 BMW M5 Debuts With 717 Horsepower 2025 BMW M5 Debuts With 717 Horsepower Few cars generate as much enthusiasm among enthusiasts as the BMW M5 . After a long preparation, the company's latest super sedan is here. The new M5 is the most powerful yet to wear the iconic logo. But it's also the most powerful M5 thanks to its standard hybrid powertrain.  As expected, there is some XM DNA under the skin, namely a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 and an electric motor sandwiched with eight speeds. Total system output is 717 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque, slightly more than what you get in the XM line. The engine alone produces 577 horsepower, with an additional 194 horsepower coming from the engine, the same as the XM . However, the hybrid battery is smaller, at 14.8 kWh. 2025 BMW M5 Debuts With 717 Horsepower BMW says the new M5 can go from zero to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds. Top speed is only 155 mph, though it increases to 190 mph with the M driver's package. The other side o

Red Bull RB17 Hypercar Debuts at The Goodwood Festival of Speed Red Bull RB17 Hypercar Debuts at The Goodwood Festival of Speed After years of rumors and teasers, Red Bull has finally unveiled its first-ever customer track car, the RB17, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed . The two-seater mid-engine hypercar generates over 1,200 horsepower, thanks to an electrically assisted 4.5-liter naturally aspirated V-10 that can rev to an astonishing 15,000 rpm. Weighing under 1,984 pounds, Red Bull promises Formula 1 car levels of track performance. Talk about extreme. This incredible weight is due to the RB17's carbon fiber two-seater monocoque, which uses the engine as a stressed member of the chassis. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox and a hydraulically locking active limited-slip differential. There is no reverse gear; backing up is handled by the electric motor integrated into the drivetrain. Red Bull RB17 Hypercar Debuts at The Goodwood Festival

The Pagani Huayra Finally Gets a Manual Transmission The Pagani Huayra Finally Gets a Manual Transmission Just like the Zonda , Pagani will probably continue creating special versions of the Huayra hypercar as long as there is demand. We've already seen the Codalunga, the Imola, and the Huayra R. Now, Pagani is debuting a new version at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed—and it features a manual transmission. That's right, this is the first Pagani Huayra with a manual gearbox. The aptly named Huayra Epitome designed to represent the pinnacle of Pagani was commissioned by a very affluent client who wanted a Huayra with a manual shifter. The seven-speed gearbox, sourced from Xtrac, uses the "latest triple-disc clutch for better torque transmission" and is housed within a beautiful aluminum open gate, similar to the Utopia.

New Toyota Engines Are Smaller But Improved New Toyota Engines Are Smaller But Improved Toyota chairman Akio Toyoda predicts that battery-powered electric vehicles will never surpass a 30-percent market share. He also believes that the internal combustion engine isn't the enemy, but rather the carbon emissions it produces. With this perspective, it's no surprise that the Japanese automaker is still developing ICEs. This week, a new family of inline-four engines was announced. Here's what we know about them. These engines will run on traditional fossil fuels as well as carbon-neutral options like liquid hydrogen, synthetic fuel, and biofuel. During a joint conference with Mazda and Subaru , Toyota revealed three new engines. Among them is a new naturally aspirated 1.5-liter unit, approximately 10 percent smaller in volume and height compared to the current engine. This new engine will be more powerful and efficient, with a promised weight reduction of around 10 percent.
