2022 Toyota Prius Nightshade Edition: For the Eco-Friendly Sith Lord
Not one to miss out on the blacked-out special-edition trend, the 2022 Toyota Prius Nightshade Edition becomes the 11th Toyota model to infiltrate the market in dark guise. It is the first hybrid model in the Toyota lineup to get the bold Nightshade styling treatment, too. The Nightshade appearance package adds blacked-out wheels, headlight accents, mirror caps, door handles, and badges. The special edition package is available on standard front-wheel-drive or AWD-e Prius grades with a choice of three exterior colors: Midnight Black Metallic, Super White, and Silver Metallica.
The Ford GT supercar made its debut at the Detroit Auto Show way back in 2015, so it's fair to say that the fastest Ford is getting a little long in the tooth. That doesn't mean it's any less handsome, hellaciously fast or exclusive, though. To prove that, Ford announced on Thursday that it would be releasing another special edition of the GT, this time celebrating the 1964 prototype GT that eventually became the world-beating monster we know and love today.
The 2022 Ford GT 64 Prototype Heritage Edition celebrates the final year of GT production with what is arguably the best-looking of the GT Heritage Edition cars. It features Ford's wonderfully creamy Wimbledon White paint on most of its body, and the rest gets a mixture of Ford's might-as-well-be-black Antimatter Blue on the hood, fender tops and as a racing stripe extending back over the roof and onto the active spoiler. The carbon-fiber wheels are also Antimatter Blue and sized at 20 inches. It's a helluva thing.
2021 Ford GT quick drive review: Still so special
Ford's GT is no longer the new hotness, but it's an exciting supercar that still turns heads -- especially at Monterey Car Week.Driving the Ford GT is an experience. The dihedral doors don't lift quite as far as I want, making the shimmy into the cabin extremely unglamorous. The seat in this car was clearly designed for someone much taller than me, and while the pedals do move and the steering wheel telescopes slightly, at 5 feet, 8 inches tall, I'm still arms out and legs crunched. (Maybe I should've used a pillow.
The 64 Prototype Heritage Edition GT does all the retro racer homage stuff right.
The interior of the 64 Prototype Heritage Edition features Lightspeed Blue Alcantara seats with silver stitching while the rest of the interior gets a mix of black leather and black Alcantara, and it manages, in our opinion, to pull off the modern-hypercar-by-way-of-vintage-race-car thing really beautifully.
OK, so it looks cool, but what's the deal with the 1964 prototype? Well, of the five prototype GT40s built, only one survives to this day with its original livery: Chassis GT/105. This slice of history will be displayed alongside the 64 Prototype Heritage Edition during its debut at The Quail during Monterey's famed Car Week.
The Acura Integra will return in 2022
Acura's compact coupe is making a comeback -- for real this time.No, I'm not pranking you. The Integra is coming back, and I'm stoked. The drones first showed the original 1986 Integra's shape -- complete with pop-up headlights -- before morphing into the new model's sleek silhouette. The name Integra was prominently displayed with flashing and moving lights, before the number "2022" also lit up in the sky. And then the crowd cheered, obviously.
Ford already has its order books open for the 2022 Ford GT, so if you're a Ford-approved GT customer (that means not you, John Cena), then phone up your Ford rep and get ready to write a big fat check. Production of the final year of the GT is scheduled to begin in January.
