Supercar Alfa Romeo, 2023 Zeekr 001: today’s car news

Alfa Romeo celebrated the new year by teasing a mystery model. Rumors suggest it’s the supercar hinted at by Alfa Romeo boss Jean-Philippe Imparato last summer. The supercar, possibly dubbed the 6C, is said to be a swan song for the internal combustion engine as Alfa Romeo moves to an all-electric lineup later in the decade.

China’s Zeekr 001 may have dethroned the Lucid Air as the new king of the EV range. The performance hatch has been updated for 2023, and the updates include an available 140kWh battery from CATL, which is said to deliver a range in excess of 600 miles. Who is the range king? We won’t know unless the car gets here as the rating systems in the US and China are different.

Ken Block, the founder of DC Shoes and the Hoonigan racing team, died Monday at the age of 55. The cause of death was a snowmobile accident that occurred near Blocks Ranch in Woodland, Utah.
