The '57 Chevy is pretty overplayed as far as cars go, but what the hell, everybody's got to enjoy some big chrome every once in a while.
A BMW M3 E92. A stretch of the Nürburgring. A camera. It was bound to happen. This particular version comes from Gerhard Kremer and HighSpeedFotos.de. This shot is taken every day.
Prototype racing at this weekend's 60th 12 Hours of Sebring wasn't as dramatic as usual, with Audi pulling a predictable 1-2 victory. The GT race was far more fascinating, with numerous cars swapping paint and positions until the last seconds of the race.
Kevin McCauley (whose great photography you can see here) used to hang out with me and shoot cars. Once we tried to take photos of an XFR doing a burnout in the middle of a road in rural Southeast Texas in the middle of a pitch black night. It didn't work.
I'm a big fan of the Lexus LF-Lc concept, which somehow manages to merge a lot interesting design angles into one vehicle in a cohesive and alluring way. I especially like the swoosh of aluminum that intersects with the headline.
For today's wallpaper we're combining the two biggest stories from Leap Day: the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and the Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro. The result? This lovely Ferrari 512 F. The lighest of the 512s, chassis #1048 pulled a DNF at Le Mans after Mike Parkes spun the 800-kg car (more about that here).
Aston Martin will race Le Mans and and the FIA World Endurance Championship in this gorgeous, Gulf-liveried racer. The car is a "development" of the Vantage GT2 with the V8 engine. If you want to see it in the U.S. it'll appear at Laguna Seca and Long Beach for a couple of ALMS warmups.
Scott Speed was America's last F1 driver, which may explain why Americans aren't completely enamored with the sport. Speed's experience was mixed and he was eventually replaced at Scuderia Toro Rosso by Sebastian Vettel, whose experience was far from mixed.
In honor of our Americana-bent today I'm going to feature reader Ferli's photograph of the dashboard from a 1956 Cadillac DeVille. But that shot wasn't taken in the United States, but in Ferli's hometown of Maracaibo, Venezuela. Long live the boat.
They can't all be exotics. Here's a 1986 BMW E24 6 Series tearing up the roads of Australia's Southern Highland region in this photo from Ellis Maher, who really loves his 6er. We love it too.
I don't post a lot of Skoda wallpapers because no one sends them to me, but it is one of my favorite VW Group companies (the Skoda Superb is hot). Why I enjoy it can be summed up in this shot of a Skoda Fabia S2000 flying over a crest at Rally Sweeden, where driver Sebastian Ogier won his class while looking awesome.
Photographer Cooper Naitove enjoys shooting cars so much he's moving to Saudi Arabia to work for one of those supercar dealership/tuning shops that cranks out mind-bogging exotics. After seeing this shot of a Ferrari F430 in Boulder, Colorado we can't wait to see what he does on his pilgrimage abroad.
Someone sent us an email last night complaining about us calling these wallpapers "ridiculously cool" every day. If you don't find this photo of Petter Solberg's Ford Fiesta RS WRC getting a dab of oppo at the Monte Carlo Rally awesome please feel free to not download it.
