Hyundai Ioniq 5 N
Hyundai N revealed its first electric vehicle in the form of the Ioniq 5 N. The car isn’t simply a clone of the related Kia EV6 GT, as the Hyundai comes with more power and various N-developed functions, including one that simulates gear shifts for the feel of an ICE powertrain.
One of the cars we tested this week was the Lotus Eletre electric SUV. The vehicle is quick, like most performance EVs, but the chassis can still do with a lot of work, something that becomes clear when pushing the vehicle toward its top speed.

While the Porsche Carrera GT is likely automotive perfection for most Porsche lovers, some owners weren’t happy with the original design and reached out to Zagato to craft a new body for the car. The resulting design, known as the Carrera GTZ, was built in a run of six cars and now one of those is up for sale.
And finally, Ferrari revealed the latest one-off supercar crafted under its Special Projects program. The new car, dubbed the KC23, was commissioned by one of Ferrari’s most loyal customers and is based on the platform of the 488 GT3 race car.
