Specs: 784 horsepower. 737 pound-feet of torque. Twin-turbo V-6. Dual-clutch, 8-speed transmission. These are just a few of the tantalizing tidbits circulating about the next-generation GT-R. And while they're just educated guesses gleaned from industry sources at this point, all signs point to a major Godzilla upgrade. And get this: the R36 might even have a completely revolutionary hybrid powertrain.
With much anticipation, Honda will make their return to Formula One in 2015 as the official engine/power train supplier for McLaren. To say Honda has enjoyed success as an engine supplier in the highest echelon of motorsports would be a gross understatement. Their success was most evident in the 1980s as they exploited the limits of turbocharging, as well as emerging as the front-runner of normally aspirated technology after a rules change in 1989. During a special exhibition at the Twin Ring Motegi circuit in Japan (conveniently also the location of the Honda Collection Hall Museum), Honda resurrected three of the most important Formula One cars of that era and shared the videos of their runs.

Turbo cars are kind of like superheroes. They’re mild mannered, quiet and basically invisible to the public. But with a little prodding, they spin up fast and then the competition gets their shit wrecked. Growing up in Colorado, Matt Frost wasn’t a superhero.

Once again we had an immensely successful turnout for this week's installment of our Top 10 Automotive Photography article. These past couple of weeks we put the voting into the hands of our Facebook community. By allowing the community to vote directly, it allows for a wider variety of eyes to study and critique the content.
Once again we decided to mix up this week's installment of the Top 10 Automotive Photography countdown. Instead of hosting the voting session internally by TeamRevv, we went out to our Facebook community and allowed them to vote directly for the winners. Of the twenty images chosen for the initial pool, we used the individual images' Likes plus Comments and Shares to calculate who the official winners were. . . and it was an interesting turnout! Everybody has their individual interests, and while we love scrutinizing every image with the upmost belief that we're unbiased, it's simply not true. So, we let the masses do the voting!
