Pikes Peak
The 12.42-mile course rises to more than 14,000ft

Opinion: Why Volkswagen's Pikes Peak entry is an inspired move

The hillclimb event allows electric cars to take on combustion-engined rivals on a level playing field (even if the course is anything but)

Rezvani Tank
Rezvani Tank - Rezvani’s naming structure is refreshingly honest; the Beast supercar and Tank SUV are fitting and apt, if ever so slightly cheesy, without being boring or derivative. But did Rezvani have to make the Tank so ugly? Vehemently abandoning the ‘less is more’ approach can be a good thing, but unfortunately this isn’t an example of that. Tone it down 10% and it'd be the right blend of sci-fi and action movie, without the cartoonish hyperbole.
