Custom car shop Vitesse AuDessus and an outfit called Bengala Automotive are now making carbon fiber body kits for the current Rolls-Royce lineup. Every bolt-on body part is remade from a “compressed carbon matrix,” anything else gets a stick-on. The company is also claiming the first “forged carbon fiber wheels.”
A few months ago, Akira Nakai-san was in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania building the latest Rauh-Welt Begriff Porsche for Porsche enthusiast, Ben Harmony. The newest addition to the fleet, known as “Prince”, took a surprising two days to finish (he typically completes builds in three) and was the first Porsche to receive…
It was a good day for an apocalypse.
Ford has decorated a Shelby GT350 as a tribute to legendary U.S. Air Force pilot Bob Hoover and his P-51 stunt plane “Ole Yeller.” It will be auctioned off for charity, which is wonderful. But why’d they have to go and make it look like a tuner car from 2001?
You’ve got to respect this kind of dedication to tremendously bad decisions.
Today we celebrate a brave alloy for breaking free from a life—if you can call it that—imprisoned on a stanced Saab.
There is no car-filled franchise more widely known, widely loved and even widely reviled than the Fast and the Furious movies. Everyone has seen at least a couple of them. And today, the first film of the franchise celebrates its 15th anniversary. (You can catch it one more time on the big screen tonight.) Fifteen…
All Ahmad Ali wanted was a Chevrolet Corvette souped up to have enough horsepower to defibrillate God. To realize this dream, the Qatari went to one of the most famous names in the car tuning business: John Hennessey. But three years later, he is still fighting Hennessey Performance Engineering for more than $70,000…
“This car looks sketchy and dangerous,” writes The Smoking Tire introducing Roland’s Datsun 260Z. Or at least, a car that looks mostly like a 260Z.
There are many good reasons to take your car to a track. It’s safe, it’s easy, and the odds are low that you’ll crash into a house. One modded Toyota Supra owner learned that lesson the hard way.
“The tint is illegal,” he told me, “but I’ve never gotten pulled over for it.” I was standing in a freezing-cold garage looking at a blacked out 2011 Nissan 370Z. It crouched so low to the ground that preschoolers could play leapfrog over it. Its marriage prospects had been improved by the addition of a top mount…
Days ago, car-spotting YouTuber Gordon Cheng found himself in a Tokyo parking garage. It turned out to be a cave of wonders, full of the absolute most outrageously modified Lamborghinis I’ve ever seen.
I mean, just look at this thing.
Two turbos on the V10 now dialed to produce about 1,800 horsepower at the wheels, a sequential gearbox and Dodson’s 10 plate clutch. Add drag tires, and what you get is a Huracan running the 1/4 miles in the sevens.
Driving a car at 250 mph looks terrifying. It looks like hyperspace. It looks like death blurring your vision. Things look different from the passenger seat, a view that we may have never had before.
I went to the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show with an edict from my bosses: “Don’t just stand around and complain that there aren’t any manual-transmission rear-drive lead sleds there.” Don’t worry, I found one anyway, and it’s a fantastic old Acura NSX!
It might look like any other IROC-Z, but it doesn’t drive like one.
Today’s Mercedes Benz C36 AMG was originally built to challenge BMW’s M3 and is one of only 200 that were ever imported to the U.S. to do so. Your challenge is to decide if this low-mileage example is Nice Price or Crack Pipe.
I’ve been going to SEMA for more than a dozen years now, and I’ve seen it go from an over the top, in-your-face festival of insanity during the peak of the internet boom in the early 2000s to a ghost town a half a dozen years later thanks to the global recession. The good news is that SEMA is back and stronger than…
