This week we took a lap in the revised Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63 E Performance 2024. The new sport sedan traded in the previous V-8 for a 4-cylinder hybrid powertrain that produces up to 671 horsepower, which is hard to love.
2023 McLaren Artura
McLaren’s Artura plug-in hybrid supercar was another car we tested this week. It only packs a V-6, but thanks to electrification it also delivers a whopping 671 hp.
Dutch performance brand Donkervoort unveiled the new F22 sports car this week. Serving as the successor to Donkervoort’s D8 series of race cars, it brings with it a new chassis, new carbon fiber manufacturing technology and the promise of up to 2.15g of lateral acceleration.
2024 Ford Mustang
Another sports car that grabbed the headlines this week was the redesigned 2024 Ford Mustang. Ford has finally released horsepower numbers for the car, and they’re up across the board compared to the outgoing model.

The battery-electric version of the upcoming facelifted BMW 5 Series was tested this week and the latest prototype spotted was an estate variant. Expected to be called the i5 Touring, the electric wagon should offer a choice of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and a range of more than 300 miles on a single charge.

We also spotted a prototype for the redesigned 2024 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT. The new sports car is closely related to the facelifted SL due for 2022, so it won’t have a convertible option this time.
Ford Megazilla crate engine
Finally, Ford introduced a new version of its 7.3-liter V8 monster, known to fans as Godzilla. Nicknamed the Megazilla, the new version offers even more power and torque. The Megazilla is slated to join the Godzilla in Ford’s crate engine portfolio next year.
