so…James, Richard, and Jeremy as Team Rocket! If you couldn’t tell: Jeremy is Jessie, Richard is Meowth, and James is…James.

(Look how much fun Jeremy is having, eh?)

The new Icon Helios is incredible

The design mind behind the Bronco is taking it back with all-electric Tesla-based aluminium rocket.

Meet the Icon Helios, an Californian dream machine packing an all-electric platform, and bodywork surely dreamed up when Howard Hughes got drunk with Gordon Buehrig.


Actually, that’s the analogy Icon’s owner, Jonathan Ward, uses to explain his latest vision. “One way or another,” he revealed on Twitter, “I will build this car. Looking for the right client to commission it.”A bit of history, first. Icon is famous for building one of TG’s favouritest ever cars, the Bronco; a reworked 1972 monster with an entirely new chassis underneath, a box-fresh 5.0-litre V8 up front and a good, solid slug of 400bhp and 400lb ft of torque.There’s a purpose built Atlas II transfer case, custom Dynatrac Dana solid-axle assemblies and independent coilover suspension by Eiback and Fox Racing. So it’s a serious, serious bit of kit. [x]

Target 290mph: it’s Hennessey’s Venom F5


EXCLUSIVE: TG brings you the 1400bhp twin-turbo Texan aiming to smash the production speed record. Be afraid.

Here it is, a world-first look at Hennessey’s Venom F5, Texas’s V8 twin-turbo hyper-thing aiming not just to go quicker than the 268mph Veyron Super Sport, but blow the pesky Bugatti into the weeds, targeting a top speed of 290mph. Perhaps even more.

"I think something in the 290mph range will be possible," boss John Hennessey tells TG in an exclusive interview. Normally a claim so big from a manufacturer so small should be taken with a pretty hefty helping of scepticism. But don’t forget Hennessey has form.
As you’ll likely be aware, earlier this year Hennessey’s first hypercar, the 1,244bhp Venom, hit 270.49mph on Nasa’s Kennedy Space Center runway: faster than the Veyron Super Sport’s 269.86mph recorded vmax (the Bugatti’s official 267.86mph figure, if you’re wondering, was the average of its upwind and downwind runs at Ehra-Lessien).
