Jay Leno McLaren P1

So, what would you do if you are the happy, proud and no doubt protective owner of an all new McLaren P1? You would want to protect it so it stays in its prestine condition for the rest of eternity, am I right?

Of course.

Well, that is what Jay Leno – former talk show host and swoon worthy car collector – did immediately when he got his McLaren P1 (because obviously Jay Leno owns a brand new McLaren P1…)

Jealousy aside, Jay invite chis viewers of his popular YouTube channel, Jay Leno’s Garage, to come with and witness as his latest addition to his ever growing car collection gets wrapped in a protective coating that will keep it looking spiff and spam for years to come – perhaps not for the rest of eternity, but, close enough.

BMW i8 vs Corvette Stingray

Ah, a classic drag race – there really is few things in life that give us the thrill of watching two, powerful sports cars go head to head in a bid to see who is the most powerful and of course, fastest. However, what happens if you pit a more traditional sports car against it’s modern counterpart?

Well this is what we’re super excited to find out.

YouTube channel, The Fast Lane Car, recently pitted a classic, 2015 Chevy Corvette Stingray against the all new, futuristic BMW i8 – and of course, as we all know, the BMW i8 is a hybrid electric car. So will it have the potential to destroy a full on, classic sports car such as the Stingray? (more…)

Mercedes AMG-GT unveiled

AMG GT

Mercedes has just unveiled the AMG-GT – a new flagship model that was entirely developed by AMG and boy, is this a seriously sexy car!

This is also the first time Mercedes has dropped the ‘Benz’ from the name, emphasising the fact that it very much belongs to the brains over at AMG. Not that that is an issue at all, we are thrilled to finally lay our eyes on this anticipated car.

The AMG-GT sportscar was designed to compete with the Jaguar F-Type and the Porsche 911. And, by the looks of things, both Jaguar and Porsche should be sitting on the edge of their seats because there is no doubt that this car is one serious competitor.

First things first – the power (because really what else could be more important?). (more…)

Ferrari not impressed with EDM DJ’s ‘Purrari’

Purrari

Ferrari makes beautiful cars, this we know. And it is (of course) very evident that they are very proud of the beautiful cars they produce. However, they have also made it clear that they do not take well to people, albeit Ferrari owners, making a ‘mockery’ of their cars.

The Italian automaker has lashed out at famed electronic music producer, Deadmua5, after the DJ wrapped his Ferrari 458 Spider in a somewhat unusual wrap.

The Deadmau5 Ferarri, which he dubbed the ‘Purrari’ was wrapped in a Nyan Cat theme. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Nyan Cat, it is an internet meme that exploded all over the net and is seen as somewhat of a pop culture sensation. It’s basically just a pixelated cat, flying through space, leaving a trail of rainbows behind him… yes, we know that sounds ridiculous.  (more…)

Mazda 2016 MX-5

The day has finally arrived that we get to see the all new, beautiful 2016 Mazda MX-5.

A few weeks ago, we reported on the first teaser image that the Japanese automaker showed us, but, today, we can finally see the new car in all its glory, The 2016 MX-5 was officially unveiled on Wednesday.

Mazda has said that the idea with the 2016 model, was to bring it back to it’s roots. And by roots we mean size and weight. The company said that they wanted to make their latest model similar to the very first one, which made its debut 24 years ago on 1989. So taking a cue from that year, the new MX-5 is set to be lighter, but still very fast.

However, what happens if you pit an all new, super fast Lamborghini Huracana against something worthy of a drag race against it; an actual, military grade fighter jet.
