You Know What? Vespacross Is A Thing And It Is Pretty Damn Awesome

The former is car racing not on circuit and often involving dirt and snow, while the latter is dirt bike racing that involves dirt track and a lot of breathtaking jumps. Well, now, meet Vespacross.

This Is The BMW P63/1, The Heart Of BMW’s WEC Contender, The BMW M8 GTE

Adoration for cars is beyond aesthetic. A true car lover will learn to adore the motor as much as the power it pumps out.

This is the very reason why when I saw the press text from BMW, detailing the heart of the BMW M8 GTE, I get all wet with excitement and I felt compelled to share it with you folks.

Rally Car Catching Some Air Nearly Took Out A Drone In Its Path

Drone has become a norm and so are the incidents of drone being taken out of the sky accidentally or intentionally. In a recent incident, a low-flying drone attempt to capture a spectacular footage of an oncoming rally car, a Toyota WRC piloted by Esapekka Lappi, catching some air, but unfortunately it got in the way of the launching car and resulted in a collision. Fortunately, like any good, accomplished rally car driver, the Finnish driver presses on and landed beautifully before speeding off leaving a cloud of dust as spectators cheered on. We are not quite sure if the excitement and applauses were for the beautifully executed Micky’s Jump, or a celebratory cheer for another injured drone (unlikely), or for the team’s ability to advert a potential deadly disaster.

Don’t Modified A BMW M4 Coupé For Track Until You Have Read This!

If you are planning to turn a lovely BMW M4 into a track-going beast, well, don’t, because BMW wants to save you the hassle with this tuned-for-track 2018 BMW M4 GT4. That’s right. The luscious M4 has a track variant and it wouldn’t be anything less of a ‘yay’ for track enthusiasts and racing car teams. As the name suggests, the GT4 is built upon the M4 Coupé, which means it inherited the engine and transmission, including control electronics, from the M4 Coupé, but being a tuned-for-track ride, it gets some serious upgrades like carbon hood from the BMW M4 GTS, carbon-fiber doors, motorsport-specific splitters and rear wings, a racing exhaust system, and seat, brakes and pedal box borrowed from BMW M6 GT3.

Volkswagen Rallycross Beetle

as much as we adore the idea of a Dune Beetle (the car, not the insect, btw), nothing speaks like one that’s rally-prepped – like this Volkswagen Rallycross Beetle. unveiled at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, the Volkswagen Rallycross Beetle is Volkswagen’s newest machine for the Rallycross after the modified Polo rally cars that have won the World Rally Championship for drivers and manufacturers in 2013. the German automaker partners with Andretti Autosport to form the Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross (VARX) team and will be running two cars for drivers Tanner Foust and Scott Speed (and if you haven’t heard, there is quite a bit of buzz about these two folks lately).
