Porsche’s latest creation, the Cayman GT 4, is said to rival the existing Porsche 911 Carrera as well as the powerful Carrera S – and we must say, judging by these most recent spy shots, the Cayman looks dangerous. And we mean that in a good way.

The Cayman Gt 4 will be a powerful car, that much we know. What we also like is the sleek-meets-bulky look of the car that is basically yearning to be pushed to it’s limit.

Some of the features we do know of include a new aero kit and bigger breaks. It also has larger, lightweight wheels, a lower ride height and, as you can see in the pictures, a striking rear wing and ducktail spoiler. Impressive.  (more…)

If there is one type of car that needs to be fast, it’s a police car. Seeing as though they catch and chase criminals and all, one would expect these cars to be super fast.

However, locally our police cars aren’t that fast. In fact, some of them are rather slow – not good at all if you are pursuing a criminal in the loose! But just because our local cars aren’t ridiculously fast, doesn’t mean that other country’s police cars have to be slow too. In fact, this new police car from a small town in the south of England is anything but slow.  (more…)

A few months ago, the Hennessey Venom GT became the fastest car in the world. And of course, the attention immediately thrust the car, as well as Hennessey into the spotlight.

The Hennessey GT Venom officially became the fastest car in the world after it broke the land speed record in February. The super car topped an incredible 270,4 miles per hour, which for us means 435, 26 km/h! Yes, we know, that’s super fast. (more…)

Japan underground

Japan’s underworld is home to many things and many, how should I say, eccentric people. Whether it’s social billionaires, thrill-seeking daredevils or, in this case, flashy yakuza’s (yakuza being an organized crime syndicate).

This gang, operating in Tokyo’s underworld has always had a penchant for fast cars or bikes. However, recently, it seems that the yakuza are having some sort of internal competition as to see who has the most blinged-out car. There preferred mode of transport? Lamborghini’s of course.

The gang was originally some sort of motorcycle gang, but quickly transitioned into more flashy (and more expensive) automobiles. Going from a daring motorcycle club to Lambo-racing criminals will obviously come with new threats and in this case, super flashy style. (more…)

R8

Have you ever wondered what it takes to build one of the world’s most sought after sportscars, the Audi R8? Well, perhaps you haven’t and all you really want is to own one – nevertheless, it would still be interesting to see how one is assembled, am I right?

The Drive channel on YouTube’s segment, Inside Quattro, takes you inside the famous Quattro GmbH where the R8 is assembled. This time around, they’re taking a look at the R8 V10 Plus, and what it takes to put one together. Just so you know, too.

The video is actually pretty interesting and will be well worth the watch for both all-round petrol heads as well as Audi fans.

Dubbed the ‘sports car of the future’, the BMW i8 has been making a lot of waves lately since it was officially unveiled at the New York Auto Show a while back. So, naturally, the ‘man about cars’, Mr. Chris Harris himself, had to test drive the i8 and see what all the fuss is about.

Chris, who obviously lives in the UK, had specially flown to Los Angeles to take the i8 for a spin. While, admittedly he was quite annoyed with the traveling, his review of the i8 was rather good. (more…)

BMW i8

While we have known about the BMW i8 for months now – the much anticipated Hybrid electric luxury car has finally made it’s official debut at last week’s New York Auto Show.

The i8, which serves as both an electric and hybrid car, is definitely one to draw attention. However, besides it’s sleek modern and somewhat futuristic looks, the car is actually a celebration of what modern, green technology can bring to the auto industry.

The car features an astonishing 362 horsepower. That’s quite the powerful car. It combines a 3 cylinder petrol engine with an addition electric engine which obviously attributes to the car’s high horsepower. (more…)

lamborghini 7 year old

We all know that boys love their toys – and especially 7 year old boys who have just discovered the joy that is a super car. So what do you do, as a parent, to make your Lamborghini obsessed son’s birthday one he will never forget? You organize a fleet of Lambo’s, of course.

This is exactly what one father did for his son’s 7th birthday. Jacob, as described by his father, is one of Lamborghini’s youngest fans. So for his 7th birthday, he’s dad thought he would give it a shot at organizing a ride in a Lamborghini for his son.

The California native contacted the North Los Angeles Lamborghini dealership on Facebook and told them about his son’s biggest dream. Asking if there was any way they could help him  out by giving the little guy a ride, the team at Lamborghini North LA did one better. (more…)
