Thundering exhaust. Men in balaclavas. A camouflaged prototype that’s actually covered in camouflage.

You can expect all this and more in the teaser trailer for the Super Trofeo, a new racing version of the just-released 2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4.

Historically, Lamborghini hasn’t been too involved in racing, but the Italian marque has found success with the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series, which allows amateur drivers to compete in identical cars on some of the world’s best tracks.

The current Super Trofeo car is based on the Gallardo, but with that model’s discontinuation, it’s time for a new one.

Enter the Huracán Super Trofeo. It’s essentially a racing version of Lambo’s new “entry-level” supercar, with a stripped-down interior, beefed-up suspension and aerodynamics and, most likely, some extra power coming from the mid-mounted 5.2-liter V10.

The Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo will be unveiled August 15 at The Quail motorsport event, one of several gearhead gatherings held in conjunction with the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Check back for more updates.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV pushed the hallowed Mustang nameplate in a different direction, and it's doing that again with a new performance variant. Debuting in 2024, the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally is designed for fun on both pavement and dirt.

Rallying is a form of motorsport where drivers compete to set the quickest time over a course — usually a closed road or trail — rather than a dedicated racetrack that includes a variety of surfaces like dirt, gravel, or even snow. Rallying has inspired some epic performance road cars over the years, including the Subaru WRX, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, and Ford's own Focus RS, but it's never really been associated with the Mustang.

BMW scraps its unpopular approach to heated seats
Driver's seat and dashboard of the 2023 BMW iX M60.

BMW caused much consternation last year when it launched a subscription-only option for heated car seats.

The idea of having to pay a monthly fee of $18 to keep your posterior warm during the winter months still seems as absurd as ever, but the good news is that the German automaker has now decided to scrap the fee. What particularly irked customers was that they felt they were being forced to cough up extra for functions that would previously have been expected as standard. The fiasco even prompted a community of hackers to offer their services to unlock the feature for those unwilling to pay extra for it.

Cruise says it’s nearing approval for mass production of futuristic robotaxi
Interior of Cruise's Origin vehicle.

Robotaxi company Cruise is “just days away” from getting regulatory approval that would pave the way for mass production of its purpose-built driverless vehicle, CEO Kyle Vogt said on Thursday in comments reported by the Detroit Free Press.

General Motors-backed Cruise unveiled the vehicle -- called Origin -- in early 2020, presenting the kind of driverless car that we all dreamed of when R&D in the sector kicked off years ago; a vehicle without a steering wheel and without pedals. A vehicle with passenger seats only.
