‘Highway Star’ is a five-year build in the making.

The year 2020 has sent us a giant curveball thanks to a global pandemic that has forced us to our homes, made toilet paper hard to come by, shut down entire businesses for good, cancelled events, bombed the economy, and has more people than ever trying to get their share of unemployment. As of now, things are slowly reopening and trying to get back to a somewhat normal life, but will the SEMA show still go on as planned? Being the largest aftermarket automotive trade show in the world, our fingers are crossed. We need to have cool and wild builds to gawk at and ogle over. One build we are dying to see is this wild 1970 Dodge Challenger dubbed Deep Purple.

5-Star Analyst Sees Big Opportunity for Nvidia in the Automotive Sector

Nvidia’s (NVDA) recent market trouncing performance has rested on several key drivers. Namely, the outstanding growth of its data center segment, which over the last few quarters has been closing the gap on Nvidia’s biggest revenue generator, gaming, and a “friendly” macro environment which has played to the GPU leader’s strengths.

Aston Martin Vantage gets Revenant Automotive’s smaller grille

BMW’s second-generation 4 Series has become the poster child of the shift towards oversized grilles, but Aston Martin jumped on this bandwagon before many when it revealed the current-generation Vantage in late 2017. Its wide, low grille continues to split opinions in 2020, and a British engineering firm thinks it has a better solution.

Revenant Automotive redesigned the Vantage with a smaller, subtler grille. It’s mounted higher on the front fascia than the original car’s, it has black horizontal slats, and it’s shaped like a grille Aston’s designers could have drawn in-house. It doesn’t look aftermarket, which is highly unusual in this corner of the industry. The twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V8 engine still needs air to stay cool, so stylists chiseled an air dam into the bottom part of the bumper and concealed it with black trim. The end result is a cleaner, more low-key look.
