This past week, I took a trip to the beach. And like any good motoring enthusiast, I drove my old Honda out onto the sand. While cruising the shore, an R/C car caught up with me and the guy with the remote control challenged me to a race.

Of course I won the race. But that’s because I wasn’t challenged by the 188 mph R/C Bullet. Created by R/C mastermind Nic Case, the R/C Bullet is faster than anything fired from a gun … well, almost.

The R/C Bullet rightly claims the title of the world’s fastest R/C car. Case has set multiple Guinness world records for R/C cars but 188 mph is his best so far. Judging from the video below, this is one hell of a magic bullet.

I sure wouldn’t want to be the one holding the remote, as R/C cars seem to be notorious for running into people. One little car making a high-speed run of almost 200 mph, might just hurt a little.

Judging from the sound made by the little Bullet, it looks like it just might top 200.

There's another electric SUV on the way, and this one comes with a familiar name. Volkswagen is reviving the classic Scout name for a new electric SUV that's billed as being an "RUV," or a rugged utility vehicle.

The new EV isn't due out for quite some time, but there's already a fair bit that we know about it. Curious to learn more? Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming Scout SUV.
There's very little we actually know about the Scout SUV so far, but we do know a little about the eventual design. A few teasers for the upcoming vehicle have been released, showing sketches of both the SUV and the accompanying pickup truck, along with what's presumably the front of the SUV -- though in a dark environment, with little detail.

Volkswagen reinvented one of its most iconic models with the ID.Buzz, a modern, all-electric homage to the classic Microbus. But that's not the only fan favorite vehicle currently in the automaker's catalog.

Debuting at the 2023 Munich Auto Show, the Volkswagen ID.GTI concept aims to do for the Golf GTI hot hatchback — VW's signature performance car — what the ID.Buzz did for the Microbus. VW claims a production version has already been given the green light, although it won't say when it will appear.

As Florida embarks on the difficult work of cleaning up the damage caused by last week’s powerful Hurricane Idalia, local fire crews warned owners of electric cars caught up in floods to immediately move their vehicles away from buildings as a safety measure.

The alert was issued via the Facebook account of firefighters in Palm Harbor, Florida, after reports emerged of electric batteries in two Tesla cars suddenly combusting after exposure to saltwater, CBS News reported, adding that one of the Tesla cars went up in flames as it was being towed by fire crews.
