That whole rearend reminds me of the Mitsubishi FTO. Not sure if that’s a good thing with that kind of car.

So how did you like the “Ofenwerk”? I spent way too many Sundays as a kid there staring at other peoples cars.

In 2007, the 430 Scuderia actually outpaced the Enzo around Fiorano, so it’s not too hard to imagine the new hot version of the 488 doing the same.

US only. Europe never saw the manual E60/E61 M5, and I think the F10 was also available as a manual in the US.

Dr. Brandenburg was busted for doing some dodgy stuff with the cars he modified. Allegedly, while not proven yet, he at least used stolen Porsche parts, if not whole stolen cars for his builds. So far, he was only found guilty of unauthorized assumption of authority in 15 cases during the process of registering some

That Banana rule is the best example of how people were indoctrinated to believe the EU is only after people’s fun and personal freedom. All those “fruit/vegetable bend rules” are actually in the interest of big business - transporting a straight cucumber is just so much more economical than wasting space on fitting Read more

Back when I was in school, a silver Speedster used to park right in front of it. It had some great modifications done to it, like an Irmscher front grill, aftermarket exhaust, KW lowering kit and OZ racing wheels. Met the owner outside once and he let me sit in the car.

Why would they? It’s unclear how McLaren would survive without getting free engines plus having Alonsos salary paid plus other financial contributions (rumored to be in the 8 digit range) by Honda. If they’d switch to Mercedes, they’ll have to find additional funding for 60-90 million euros. Hard to imagine a sponsor, Read more

If you look closely, you’ll see that they are indeed different cars. The 1 of 80, being an SA Aperta convertible, has brighter headlights, silver roof trim and silver rims, while the 599 GTO is “blacked-out”. That also explains the difference in pricing, one is simply much rarer than the other.

In English? Hmm, that’s a tough one. sometimes has longer, editorial articles, and it’s pretty much the only one I can think of. Most other outlets just do the short news, seems to be the more sustainable business model. Read more

Yes, it is the mysterious new Lamborghini that they first showed of in concept guise in 2012 and that they have been talking about openly ever since. Such a mystery.

No, TÜV isn’t too strict. Having a car pass high safety standards is very much in the interest of the population, it ensures a common level of safety and minimizes someone crashing into you because of a mechanical failure. It’s not too much to ask of a car owner to have a car checked every two years and have basic Read more

The 2017 wind tunnel model is probably not of interest to the current teams and will end up as an obscure piece of memorabilia. But the rolling chassis, if given a proper Ferrari/Mercedes drivetrain, could be quite an awesome bit of kit and would be the most advanced vehicle in BOSS GP, where old F1 and Indycars go to Read more
