Porsche 911 GT3 RS Tamed ‘Green Hell’ With 6:56.4 minutes Lap Time

The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS may not be fastest Porsche yet, but it sure makes the notorious 20.6 km (12.8 miles) ‘Green Hell’ at Nürburgring-Nordschleife circuit in Germany looked tame. Piloted by Porsche development driver Lars Kern and Porsche works race driver Kévin Estre, the 520 horsepower Porsche GT3 RS set a lap time in 6:56.4 minutes, becoming the third production Porsche sports car with a notarized lap time of less than seven minutes.

Meet I.D.O. Lamborghini “Huracam”, The World’s Fastest Camera… Car

Let me ask you this: what is the fastest camera in the world? If you are thinking the camera built at Lunch University, you’d be right. But do you know there’s another that is fast in another way? Well, there is. Folks, meet the Lamborghini “Huracam” by Incline Dynamic Outlet, a company that rents and operates gyro stabilized heads. And yes. That is spelt HURACAM. Not a typo.

Here’s Another Off-road Bentley Continental GT You Can Buy

So, you missed the only chance to own an off-road prepped Bentley Continental GT, but deep down, you know that you still want one. Badly. Well, here’s the good news. While the Bentley Continental GT “Offroad” peddled by an outfit called Classic Youngtimers Consultancy may not be the same machine featured in NatGeo’s Supercar Megabuild, but it should does the job just as well. Powered by the same revered but really quite unnecessary complicated 6L W12 engine, this once made-for-tarmac luxe beast kicks out 560 hp and 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque that would enable it to wipe the century sprint in mere 4.8 seconds and makes 197 mph (318 km/h) top speed.

Holy Smoke! The Legend Lives. The Toyota Supra Is Making A Comeback!

When Toyota decided to split up its Toyota Celica Supra, it was probably the best decision. Unfortunately, as awesome the move was, the Supra moniker did not last. It ended with the JZA80 model, Toyota’s most powerful production model, after 16 years (or nearly 25 years, and four generations, if you count the Celica-Supra era). Fast forward to today, Toyota finally confirmed that it is bringing back the legend. Yes. You heard that right. The legend lives! Or at least, it is going to live sometime in near future. And Toyota affirms the move with a compact, two-door coupe at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, called Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept. Continue reading Holy Smoke! The Legend Lives. The Toyota Supra Is Making A Comeback!

BMW Sold 12K M2 Coupe In 2017, Celebrates With A Special Black Shadow Edition

BMW is particularly proud of the BMW M2 last year. In all, the German automaker said it has pushed out 12,000 units all over the world. Pardon me for my ignorance, but 12,000 is not a lot, right? Oh well, whatever it is, BMW thought it is a milestone worth mentioning and celebrating with a special edition BMW M2 called BMW M2 Coupe Edition Black Shadow. The Edition Black Shadow is supposed to emphasize “the compact high-powered sports car’s performance characteristics with precisely harmonized design features.” How so? I have absolutely no idea.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS Is The Most Powerful Road-legal Naturally-aspirated Sports Car

Later at Geneva today, Porsche will be taking the wrap off the most powerful road-legal high-performance sports car with a naturally aspirated (NA) engine, the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The 2018 911 GT3 RS is expected to premiere on March 6, 2018, at 9:20AM (CET). Expect nothing less than 520 angry horses – 20 HP more over its predecessor, and 470 Nm (347 lb-ft) from its 4L six-cylinder naturally-aspirated engine, which is paired to a specially calibrated seven-speed PDK to enable this monster of the road to rocket from zero to 62 miles an hour (100 km/h) in mere 3.2 seconds and sending it on its way to 312 km/h (about 193 miles an hour).

A Super Rich Person’s Aston Martin Valkyrie Is Going To Have A Moon Dust-infused Paint Job

Unless you happen to own a space rocket-making company, chances are you will not be able to make your car literally out-of-this-world by letting it hitch a ride on a rocket. Notwithstanding this, one man had a vision of making this soon-to-be-released hypercar out-of-this-world, but without the risk of not making back to Earth. After all, the car in question is the much anticipated, technologically advanced hypercar, Aston Martin Valkyrie, and that one man is Kris Singh, who plans to have his Valkyrie coated with a special concoction of paint that contains real moon dust.

Man, I Just Can’t Get This Porsche Raw 964 Concept Out Of My Head

I bet the name Porsche 964 will leave non-enthusiast in confusion. Wait. Porsche had a 964? Yes. It did. And if you think it looked suspiciously like a 911, well, that is because it was in fact a 911. As matter of fact, Porsche 964 was the company’s internal name for the Porsche 911 made and sold between 1989 and 1994. Like any Porsche 911 before and after it, it was a model that was much revered by fans the world over, including EA’s Concept Artist Khyzyl Saleem. But clearly, Saleem one heck of a huge fan. A fan big enough to make him get down to work and design a, in his own words, “nice and simple 964, no wide body, just raw simplicity.” Continue reading Man, I Just Can’t Get This Porsche Raw 964 Concept Out Of My Head

When a car is associated with the name Ayrton Senna, you know it is going to be a crazy ride. Well, you are ride because the McLaren Senna is indeed an insane, the most extreme McLaren road car to ever roll out of the British sports car maker yet.
