The Italian exotic carmaker has revealed its latest concept car: a sleek, electrified vehicle. There's no question that the future is electric and the days of the naturally-aspirated combustion engine are numbered. This concept undoubtly previews the successor to the aging Aventador. It's safe to speculate that the new flagship supercar will be powered by a hybrid setup similar to the 918 Spyder, LaFerrari and P1. It's unclear whether it will retain the V12 or downsize.

As much as I love the 2JZ, I think it is out of place in a Rolls Royce. I would have gone with a 1GZ-FE from the Toyota Century. Also, the engine bay looks so empty...

Favorite on the 6 was the upgraded rear sway bar, really changed the cornering feel on it. On the FC, it's a tougher call, I did so much all at once, but one thing I really like is the Mazdaspeed steering wheel. Just feels good, and it's nice to look at.

[]Yves Vds

I got a few mods on my car. The supercharger was definitely a nice addition, but I am not completely done with it yet (mapping to be done). So at the moment, it's a toss-up between the shortshifter and the TRD swaybars. Both these mods changed the driving experience.

[]Greg Moore

Gotta love that blower whine

[]Yves Vds

Definitely something you don't hear all the time.

[]Tabitha Blagdon

Nice

[]Ernie Szots

Tough call! I think the biggest one-time joy came from my Tein springs, but I've gotten more long-term enjoyment from my Pioneer 7" touchscreen.

[]Tabitha Blagdon

I gotta get me one of those

[]Ernie Szots

Mine doesn't have navigation, I Bluetooth my phone to it for that, so it only ran me a couple hundred bucks. Not nearly as much as some of the Apple/Android Auto units with navigation. I wouldn't mind one of those, but my Pioneer has served me very well. Paid a few extra bucks for the adapter that lets it play DVD's while the car is driving (goes w/o saying that's for my passengers, not me lol).

[]Matt Heeley

There's a lot, but here's my top 3.

1. Adaptronic ECU - well supported, lots of features, and easy to use.

2. Synapse 50mm Wastegate - no diaphragm to fail means it's durable, and big enough to control boost on a big turbo rx7 without going to dual waste gates

3. Greddy Type S dampers - monotube, adjustable, comfy on the street, capable on the track.

[]Mike Levy

Ghetto side pipe exhaust sans muffler that burns passengers' legs if they touch it when getting in or out of the car.

[]Peter J Nielsen

exhaust. makes it sound better and makes the drive more engaging.......tied in second place are my Bilstein coil-overs Brembo big brake kit

[]Wayne Doyle

I am really loving the Engine bay makeover.

[]Jared Dainis

So far, iโ€™ll say the lightweight flywheel. 13 lbs vs oem 47 lbs. Really woke the car up.

[]Tobias Linder

Favourite mod? Fender braces hands down. Those things make the Miata fly around corners.

[]Wilson Oberholzer

I'm stuck between my TD04HL-15T turbo or my Abbott Racing catback. The turbo makes me go faster but the exhaust just sounds so good and lets the turbo spool a little faster.

[]Filip Larsson

Engine wise, getting a new fresh turbo.
Interior wise, I have to say either my boost gauge (๐Ÿ˜‚) or fire extinguisher.
Exterior wise, 100% my wheels.

[]Sammie Robertson

Only mod I have right now is the exhaust, but that's okay because I do love it!

[]Mister Modtomic

My favorite mod is the $35 used 1G stock BOV that allowed me to run 16psi on my 2G Eclipse. The stock 2G (plastic? really?!) BOV is built to leak at about 12psi and serves as an overboost protection. No thanks, I've got a REAL boost gauge, a wideband and my eyes for that.

When I had my Prelude, I tried to get more power out of it by fitting a complete stainless steel exhaust system. Power-wise, it didn't do much. I lost low-end torque. But most importantly it became obnoxiously loud...

[]Brandon Marquis

Trying to build a track car that is also a good daily driver is too hard. I love the mods I installed, but it is very $$$ to build a car to be reliable on the street and the track. Best bang for buck is just getting intake, exhaust, header, tune and calling it a day. Installing cams, doing an engine swap, then making sure the car is cool enough running on the track for extended periods...For the money I spent for my NA build, I could have bought a cheap track-only car. My advice, for anyone thinking of upgrading their car - do the bolt-ons mentioned earlier. If you want 50+ HP/TQ and you don't already have forced induction (easy to gain extra power), consider buying another car.

[]Sophia Florence

ive kept my cars stock so maybe the lack of?

[]Fox Nixor

[]Sebastian Nounou

Honestly, my worst mod was sway bars. I bought them thinking I could only improve the car and I made the handling worse.

[]Jeremy Johnston

Pulling the carpet out of my Jeep. It was gross and it had to go, but I should have replaced it with new carpet. Metal floors get really hot and it's loud all the time.

[]Wilson Oberholzer

Putting lowering springs and struts on my 99 prelude. I blew out the front struts within a week just from driving it to and from work. I learned a valuable lesson about doing suspension mods and living where I do. Of course now the intersection that destroyed my ride quality has since been fixed and freshly paved

[]Tabitha Blagdon

Ouch

[]Kaleb Andrew

Painted my valvecover orange and black lolol, first thing I did to a car lol

[]Mister Modtomic

It would be the cut out and flipped over stock airbox that I did to fit an Injen intake to by Eclipse. Because the opening faced up, water dripped into it from the edge of the hood (I suspect) and collected in my intercooler and associated piping. Oops. I fixed that...So now it's the used / craigslist $5 800w Pyle amp in my trunk that has a short in one of the RCA inputs. Damn thing cuts in and out on the right front speaker over random bumps in the road. Seems like a simple fix as I can replicate it by wiggling the cable at the input, but it's such a pain to pull out and open up.

[]Fred Webber

This front body mod called a wall. Ruined the look of my first car to the point where it also caused so much damage to the powertrain it had to go

[]Levi Thompson

[]Adam Zysk

Not necessarily a mod, but not refilling my argon tank and using flux core wire to weld up my exhaust! Nothing wrong with FC wire, but it wasnโ€™t the right tool given the situation!

[]Joshua Dicus

My first vehicle was a chevy S10, the exhaust was no good and I was very eager to build a new dual exhaust except I had hardly any money and hardly any material, instead of waiting and saving I spent what little cash I had on a straight tube cherry bomb and then I used every last small rusty scrap of exhaust pipe I could find to hack together a "dual" exhaust system that leaked worse than the old system, banged every time you went over a bump and would fall off the hangers now and then dragging down the road. I saved up the cash in the next 3 weeks for all new pipe, proper hangers and reused the cherry bomb to build a new system for it because the leaks were louder than the cherry bomb and i was so tired of the banging.

I never regret a mod. It's always trial and error of trying to improve the car. If the mod doesn't do what I hoped then I learned from it and the final product will be twice as good! I will admit though my coilovers are Hella stiff for a daily. Good excuse to put it on bags? ๐Ÿ˜‰

[]Kyle Schoenmakers

Probably, redoing my headliner in leather , it has come down due to heat. So now I'm redoing it in black suede.

For a mere $2,000 a month, you can rent a Porsche on-demand from your smartphone and drive it like you stole it. Dubbed the Porsche Passport , you can take one of the many vehicles from the German carmaker's lineup on a road trip, weekend cruise or your daily commute. An additional $1,000 per month gives you unlimited access to higher-end models including the 911 and Panamera. The only catch? The service is currently limited

Just weeks after Bugatti set the record from 0-400 kph (that's 249 mph) and back down to naught in the Chiron, Koenigsegg beat it with ease. The Chiron took 42 seconds but the Agera RS only took 36 seconds. That is some serious speed and even more serious stopping power.

I hope Hyundai replaces Honda in the performance segment - hearts and minds, that is. What Honda is doing now is not cutting it. Love it or hate it, at least this is another performance car we can discuss and drive. More hatches the merrier. The new Accord is pretty ugly. Or maybe they wanted the Civic R to look better by comparison (its not helping).

[]Brandon Dubose

I like how for over a decade all anyone has done (in the us) is talk crap on hyundai but as soon as they release the N series they expect Hyundai to look the other way and give them this amazing car. lol

[]Basir Khan

For a while, I was one of these people. Hyundai/Kia have really upped their game in terms of looks, quality and reliability in the last decade. I've sat in some of the newer models and came out genuinely impressed. At this point, anyone who disregards them is doing so out of spite.

[]Ernie Szots

Or, doing so for reasons like this:

http://abc7.com/automotive/hyundai-kia-recall-14m-vehicles;-engines-can-fail/1846843/

I don't think it's all about spite. For me, they still don't pass the kick-the-tires test. They don't feel as quality as Toyota and Honda in just about any capacity. That N just looks like a complete Golf rip-off.

Recalls are a dime a dozen. Just today, Honda issued a recall on the Accord โ€“ http://globalnews.ca/news/3597719/honda-recall-accord-vehicle-batteries-catch-fire/

I agree; I don't know of a car that hasn't had a recall, but I think a recall on the engines failing is a little different than a recall on bad battery sensors.

Aside from that, for me, there's a big difference in the feeling/driving of a Sonata vs Accord. IMHO, they're going in the right direction, but still have a way to go.

[]Brandon Dubose

I remember how crappy stuff was before and nobody can deny that. When they came out with the tiburon though, it was a turn in the right direction. Its only been uphill since which is an *amazing* feat compared to how many issues other brands have had over the past decade too.
