Classic Cars Uncovered

On a farm in France, in a deserted, run-down barn, an amazing discovery was recently made. And when we say amazing, we literally mean jaw-droopingly wonderful, as this discovery would make any automobile fan’s heart drop.

Inside of this barn on the farm, 60 classic cars dating back from the 1930′s, 1940′s, 1950′s and 1960′s are all stacked together, standing motionless and waiting for someone to rediscover them and restore them to their original beauty.

And well, someone has! (more…)

We’re willing to bet that more than half of you would probably say that the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a way better car than the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. And that is purely based in the general consensus that people believe European cars are better than American cars.

Well, perhaps this comparison video will change your mind – or at least open it…

Sure, from the bat, the comparison between these two cars may seem unusual, but in actual fact it’s not that unusual – and naturally there is only one man that can truly test and compare these two cars, Mr. Chris Harris. (more…)

Bat 1

It’s no secret that we are huge fans of the Batmobile. The iconic superhero vehicle has become one of the most recognisable fantasy cars of all time and is loved by man Batman fans around the world.

There have also been various different Batmobiles over the years, the most famous of them probably being the legendary Tumbler and most recently, we have seen some exclusive sneak peeks at the newest, upcoming Batmobile that will see Ben Affleck as Batman behind the wheel.

And while we are so used to seeing these modern day Batmobiles, it came as a refreshing change when we got to lay our eyes on this gem in the history of Batmobiles – the very first, official Batmobile.

Sure, there may have been other Batmobiles before this one or Batmobile-inspired cars, this specific one is the earliest known officially licensed Batmobile.  (more…)

When wake boarding and a Ferrari F50 combine

Wakeboard Ferrari

So, we all know that wake boarding is pretty fun (considering you don’t have a fear of water) on it’s own. We also know that driving in a Ferrari – make that a Ferrari F50 – is fun, too (considering you don’t have a fear of speed). So then why not combine these two fun activities into one?!

Well, mostly because it sounds dangerous and would require that you have all the participating equipment – namely a wakeboard and a Ferrari F50, which is obviously much harder to come by than a wakeboard.

Nevertheless, fear and equipment aside, a couple of guys actually managed to pull of a stunt that involves a wakeboard and a Ferrari F50. (more…)

Evoque, X7

It’s common knowledge that in China you can get designer handbags, watches and smartphones for less than half the price – and we all k now why that is; because they are fake.

And while we have all become accustomed to this, a certain Chinese company may have taken it a step too far this time when they produced a ‘knock-off’ version of one of the most recognisable and award-winning cars in recent history.

Say hello to the all-new (all ‘different’) LandWind X7 – or is that the Range Rover Evoque?

Lewis Hamilton wins World Championship

Lewis Hamilton Mercedes

Lewis Hamilton is definitely one very happy man this Monday, as he managed to clinched the title in the final World drivers Championship at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix yesterday.

Even though Hamilton was considered by some ass the favourite for the title from the start, he had seemingly tough competition from his Mercedes teammate, Nico Rosberg.

Unfortunately for Rosberg (and fortunately for Hamilton) he experienced some car issues that meant that Hamilton had the lead from the beginning, right until the end when he crossed the finish line as the new World Champion.  (more…)

The Ford Mustang is an iconic car. It has appeared in adverts, films, books and people have even written songs about the beloved Ford Mustang.

The Ford Mustang Shelby is just as iconic, and lucky for us, Ford has decided to revive the Shelby with the introduction of the all-new, stunningly beautiful and utterly powerful new Mustang Shelby GT350.

The American automaker has been teasing us with sneak peaks of the car for quite some time, and yesterday marked the day we finally got to lay our eyes on the new Mustang Shelby.

Originally scheduled for debut at the LA Auto Show later in the week, the company took us all by surprise and held a private viewing event last night. While we weren’t there in person, the people over at Motor Authority had the chance to attend the event and see the beast of a car in person. Oh, and luckily they took some pics, too. (more…)

1937 Ford Woodie

Classic, vintage cars always have a wonderful charm about them. Besides the fact that they remind us of days gone past (way past, in some instances) they are generally beautifully designed and a treat to drive in.

Recently, that treat was bestowed on Jay Leno of Jay Leno’s Garage (obviously). The ex-talk show host and avid vehicle enthusiast recently got the opportunity to take a ride in a beautifully restored, utterly charming, Ford Woodie.

Now if you don’t know what a Ford Woodie is, you will soon recognise it in this video. (more…)
