It’s one thing to see a car in a magazine or website, another to see it in a show (like Geneva). But it’s another thing to see a new car in the flesh. I’m emotionally attached to Mazda’s diminutive MX-5, having owned, loved and and tuned my own Eunos Roadster over many years. Even the bigger NC […]
1797hp hybrid hypercar? That’ll be the new Regera…
This is the new 3-motored hybrid hypercar from Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg. It’s called Regera and boasts a theoretical 1797hp hidden inside that stylish form, though you can only call on around 1500 of those horses at any one time. And it doesn’t have a gearbox. It’s a single speeder. Really! If you want to know more, […]
“That’s not how to treat a LADA!”
I have to admit, I do have a bit of a fetish for 4x4s, and I believe the Lada Niva is one of those cars that’s so awful it’s actually good. And this Swedish Lada TV commercial has done nothing to change those feelings. My buddy BoostedBoris (Misha) already knows this: And this video? I […]
Mid-life facelift: Nürburgring Nordschleife
A little cross-post from my Nürburgring blog over at BridgeToGantry.com. But the photos just look better on here 😉 If you want to know what the hell I’m doing here, then you should probably click through.
Ride onboard the front-wheel-drive LMP1 GTR-LM
My brain is still gently melting into its own fluids with the ground-breaking route taken by NISMO. The engine drives the front wheels, the motors push the back. The exhausts pop flames into the driver’s peripheral vision. And the sound? Just listen to that charging cycle in every braking zone. I can’t wait for Le Mans […]
AMG GT3 revealed
Now that the SLS is out of production, it makes sense for the corporate flag-flying to be done by the newest model in the Affalterbach stable. The AMG GT. I love it. I can’t wait to see it here at the Nürburgring. EDIT: Since I got these photos I’ve learned two things. Firstly, the car […]
The Jaguar F-Type, where F means “f**k-you, normality”
There’s an incredible amount of bullshit in the car industry. Thankfully the average reader’s intelligence is high enough to to keep the more specialist car titles honest. A sense of professional pride keeps most of the journos I know straight as a die. But it’s not a desire to regurgitate corporate flim-flam that’s the real danger […]
There’s fast, and then there’s Koenigsegg Fast.
If you really want to see how fast a Koenigsegg Agera R is, then check out this video by GTBoard.com. They’re not exactly broadcast-quality presenters, but they do seem to have access to machinery and locations that few can dream of. Bugatti have already announced the impending death of the Veyron and its myriad offspring. […]
Extra 34mm? This is the new McLaren 675LT “LongTail”
It might not be the dramatic whale-tailed special that we might have hoped for, but the new McLaren 675LT boasts a 50% new engine and is claimed to be the “most track-ready” McLaren roadcar yet.
I AM LEGEND: Was this McLaren’s smartest move?
Invoking the values and kudos of the original McLaren F1 GTR is a big deal. You can’t cash these chips in every year, or even every decade.
