Behold, The 500HP Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Autodesk VRED Professional 2014 SR1-SP7

The Porsche 911 GT3 is an indomitable opponent. It’s characterized by a light chassis and huge amounts of horsepower. It is also righteously filled with the sum total engineering knowledge that Porsche has accumulated throughout the 911’s decades of history. However, in that DNA, throughout all of those evolutionary jumps, beats the heart of a monster. Continue Reading »

Bentley Just Built A Sports Car, And It Looks Fantastic

Bentley isn’t a marque really synonymous with sports cars. In fact, only recently have they dipped their toes in the world of racing with the Continental GT3. Thankfully, though, a few designers and engineers got together and gave the world a car that nobody specifically asked for — the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6. Not that we’re complaining.

In 1999, Honda took a page out of its own history book and decided to revive the art of open-top driving with the S2000. A successor to the Honda roadsters of the ’60s, the S2000 was a performance-oriented, 4-cylinder powered piece of automotive perfection.

Uh Oh, Are You a Ferrari Bro?

ferrari bro car video satire

To say that Ferrari is the measuring stick of the sports car world would be a massive understatement. Enzo Ferrari effectively wrote the book on go-fast performance and looks. But being top-of-the-pile has a few drawbacks… mainly, you get a fair share of, shall we say, overzealous new owners.

We’ll call them the ‘Ferrari Bros’ – the guys who treat a brand new Ferrari 458 like a rental car, make their way across town in a serious of street races, and think you’re talking about a Pontiac when you mention the word ‘GTO‘. Not sure what we’re on about? This hilarious video from Car Bros does a pretty comprehensive job of driving the point home. Take a look.

The video highlights the life and times of Ferrari bro Damien Stonebrook in stellar parody, from his mention of “gran prixes” to the totally untrue story about Enzo Ferrari going to the Lamborghini brothers to buy a car, and even filling up the car with standard 87 octane gas. One YouTube commenter phrases it well, “Satirical gold.”

No, we’re not saying all Ferrari owners are like this but it’s this image of the ‘bro’ that is much more popularized than the guy who meticulously waxes his ’70s berlinetta boxer every week in anticipation for a Ferrari club meet. We can presume this ‘bro’ won’t be getting that invite.

Well, it looks likes wishes don’t necessarily equate to sales, as we’re quickly finding out. Continue Reading »

Jaguar F-Type Coupe Proves Money Can Buy Happiness: Review

When I was 15, I fell in love for the first time. I think you can all guess how that ended. Now nearing my mid 20s, the idea of loving a human woman seems more out of reach than owning a million dollar hypercar (yea pity party!). But the closest thing to love I’ve felt in a long time wasn’t with another person, but rather, a car. Continue Reading »

Gorgeous 1979 MGB is an 8,300 Mile Time Capsule

mg-mgb-1979-1

There’s something markedly special about a ‘survivor’ – an unrestored car that stands the tests of time and clearly come out ahead. Most cars don’t reach that coveted status because, well, we drive them…sometimes quite a lot.  Continue Reading »
