One really cool thing about TopSpeed right now is that we are getting better. Fast.
The TopSpeed auto news and games portal is in ’Dynamic’ mode - as on the best track cars - with traction and stability control buttons each pushed until everything is disabled.
More access to news and cars means far better reviews to read with better photos, so we are working hard to up our game to the highest levels of automotive news.
On the journey of driving supercars for the first time, the stumbling blocks are many to achieve really good, informative and entertaining car content.
Something really surprising is how much one’s opinion of a press loaner car changes from day one of the loan to day seven. No, we do not get one-year loaners to complain about in print (yet!).
Even so, the real quality of many high-performance machines is hard to grasp at first sitting. It takes time to appreciate their quirks.
This video review format previews some of the awesome TopSpeed Driven reviews that are coming in the next few weeks.
Adding all the specs takes time, but why should YouTube people be the only ones to see us miss gears, bomb around corners and floor throttles on the world’s hottest new cars?
The first segment is based on a car that many readers adore, the 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR .
The goal here is to make the coolest and best car news that is always fresh and fun to read. We always read the comments, so rant away if TopSpeed seems to be changing too much. A Facebook Like is a vote in the right direction, so let us know!
Until then, enjoy the above clip of my first-ever drive in the Evo X GSR that is out front of the TopSpeed Garage this week.
For more information on the 2014 Evo, sprint over to the full review comparing the Evo GSR manual with its TC-SST brother, the Evo MR here .
