‘The Grand Tour’ first to test Bugatti Chiron

It appears “The Grand Tour” managed to get its hands on a Bugatti Chiron. The Veyron successor will be appearing on an upcoming episode of Amazon’s new series starring former “Top Gear” hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, and Michelin, which supplies the tires for the 1,480-horsepower hypercar, has treated us with a little preview.

A teaser video for the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is out and hints at the new levels of customizability that will be offered with the car.

All-wheel-drive systems work in many different ways. They differ from four-wheel-drive systems in that they don't have a transfer case that typically provides low-range gearing.
