F12 TRS

When Ferrari does something, they do it good. And this testament has been proved one again in the form of the all new, all amazing, F12 TRS.

This car is basically the stuff dreams are made if. Many a sports car fan would probably tear up at the sight of this beauty in their driveway. Unfortunately for us (and fortunately for one lucky person) we will never be able to get our hands on this beauty, as it is a special, one-off edition.

The F12 TRS embodies a somewhat ‘old school glamour’ when it comes to sports cars. It is quite clearly designed to go fast and it is quite clearly Ferrari. (more…)

Porsche 911 Carrera S

Have we mentioned that we love the Drive channel on Youtube? Probably.

And today is no different. We also have a special place for a beautiful, newly built (and lets not forget super, super powerful) Porsche. This is why we are really excited about this video.

Matt Farah of the Drive channel takes the all new 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera S for a spin at the Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in California and really shows us what this beaut is capable of.

As per usual, we are insanely jealous but grateful enough to be able to see the car from up close; even if it is only on video.

Enjoy!

We love ourselves a little Porsche action every now and then. And with the new Porsche Cayman GT 4 on the horizon, it’s always nice to take a look at the other offerings in Porsche’s beautiful range.

The Porsche 918 Spyder has long been a favorite by many. It’s sleek lines and bug, bodacious body makes it a sports car that anyone would dream of having.

The Drive channel on YouTube regularly get to test drive cars like the 918 Spyder – and while we are insanely jealous of course, it’s still pretty cool to see it in action, even if its only on camera. (more…)

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…)
