Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.

Doug DeMuro has shown us a few such cars and this Alfa Romeo RZ is no exception. To say the car has a distinctive styling is an understatement and, naturally, Doug has more than a few things to say about it.

1969 - 1986 Ford Capri - The European Pony Car That Came Before the Mustang

The Ford Capri was Europe’s pony car long before the Mustang went global

When you think Ford, you think the GT40 or the Mustang, both of which American models with great heritage. Before the Mustang became global, however, Europe had its own equivalent of the pony car. The Ford Capri was a rear-wheel-drive, 2+2 coupe that could be both a commuter and a weekend warrior. Although the Capri name, as we know it, has been retired, it has a long history and we are about to share with you everything we know about the car, sometimes referred to as “the European Mustang”.

Walter Rohrl Makes the Porsche 904 Dance Around The Race Track

A Porsche 904 GTS driven by Walter Rohrl is the ultimate expression of old-school motoring

They say a car is only as good as the driver. This is especially true for older cars, which do not have electronic aids. The Porsche 904 is one of those uncompromising sports cars of old days that require a skill far beyond that of the average driver to reveal its true potential. Luckily, such people exist. Rormer racing driver Walter Rohrl is one of them and he recently got reunited with an old Porsche 924 Carrera GTS that he used to race in.

A rare 2001 Ferrari 550 Barchetta is looking for its new owner, and it’s a prime example of a car that could seriously increase in value.

1999 Mercedes-Benz CLR: The story of how Mercedes accidentally made an airplane instead of a racecar

1999 Mercedes-Benz CLR: The story of how Mercedes accidentally made an airplane instead of a racecar

The Mercedes CLR is a car that thinks its an airplane, and it proved it on three different occasions

Mercedes is certainly no stranger to motorsports. The German brand has been at it for the better part of the last 100 years. The company was involved in Grand Prix as early as 1923, with their teardrop-shaped Benz Tropfenwagen and then there was LeMans incident from 1955 where a 300 SLR crash-landed into the stands. Mercedes dominated the FIA GT1 class in the 1990s, but that was followed by some interesting developments with their Mercedes CLR, which apparently acted more like an airplane rather than a car. As a result, it managed to flip, and not just once.

Can this Tesla-powered Ferrari 308 beat the iconic Testarossa?

Tesla power in a Ferrari doesn’t seem right, but wait until you see it go!

A drag race between two Ferraris is always a treat, especially when they are both classic. Although CarWow mainly deals in the latest car manufacturers have to offer, they do occasionally do things purely for the fun of it. Such is the case with this video, in which a Ferrari 308 GTS and a Ferrari Testarossa throw down on the track. Essentially, this race is “Magnum PI” versus “Miami Vice,” and normally this race would be an easy win for the Testarossa, but one of these cars is hiding a dirty (also clean) secret.

When it comes to exotic cars, Lamborghini is one of the first to come to mind. Most of you know the story of how Lamborghini started making cars. So we won’t be delving into that. Essentially, Enzo Ferrari’s temper helped spawn one of the greatest automotive rivalries in history – Ferrari vs Lamborghini. Most classic Lamborghinis are significant cars, which is why Fantasy Junction in Emeryville, California, has this 1967 400 GT 2+2 in its inventory, and it’s looking for a new owner.

Despite Its Age, the Nissan 370Z Is Still An Amazing Sports Car

Can the Nissan 370Z prove to be the biggest performance car bargain today?

With the official unveiling of the 2022 Nissan Z, many people have been dying to find out if it will be anything close to what we were being promised. On paper, things are looking great – a twin-turbo, 400-horsepower V-6, manual gearbox, rear-wheel-drive, and a relatively affordable sticker price. That said, Nissan is still being represented by the Nissan 370Z in the compact sports car segment. YouTube channel Ratiti’s Rides is asking a very relevant question – is the Nissan 370Z worth choosing over a brand new Toyota GR86?

The Dodge Viper lives on through these 8 cars...kind of

It’s common practice for small boutique manufacturers to base their products on other carmaker’s platforms. Most times, it’s only the engines that are borrowed, but there are more than a few cases where chassis and even whole vehicles are being used as a basis for a new car. In the high-performance segment, the Corvette is the most popular choice on which other cars are based. However, the Viper platform is equally, if not more, capable and there are more than a few cars based on it.

A Very Rare Toyota MR2 TRD 2000GT Is Up For Auction

This very rare MR2 TRD 2000GT is up for grabs, and it’s beyond special

There are a few 1990s cars referred to as "The poor man’s Ferrari". The Toyota MR2 (SW20) certainly deserves it, as despite not costing nearly as much as a Ferrari, it bears striking resemblance to the Ferrari 348. With that being said, Toyota did offer a version of the MR2 that was capable of humiliating both the 348 and the F355 that came after it. TRD – Toyota’s racing division – did with the MR2 exactly the same thing they did with the Supra. They built 35 highly modified, wide-body MR2 cars, dubbed the TRD 2000GT. And now, one of them is about to be auctioned off.

The Porsche 911 is a car that doesn’t really need an introduction. Since, the 1960s, it has had many generations, all of which with their respectable fan bases. That said, every family has a Black sheep and in the case of the Porsche 911, the 996-generation is that Black sheep.

Everything You Need to Know About the Porsche 989

These are the most interesting facts about the Porsche 989

Porsche have been romancing the idea of a four-door performance sedan long before the Panamera came to be. The original idea actually came around 1982. At that point, Porsche had already started moving towards more luxurious models. The 928, for example, was much more of a gran-tourer than a proper sports car – that was the 911’s occupation. Although the 989 never made it to production, its development involved some interesting ideas, as well as thinking “outside the box”, which we are now sharing.

In the world of modifying cars, engine swaps are almost as common as mustard on a hot dog. You have the mainstream ones, like Chevrolet LS swaps, which is perfectly understandable, as they have the tuning potential and fit in just about any engine bay.

It’s no secret that Mitsubishi is a pale shadow of its former self. Having numerous successes in rallying, the brand has switched to making bland, cheaply-made crossovers and compact cars. Although Mitsubishi currently finds itself in a state of survival (they put the Eclipse name on a crossover), things were quite different in the 1990s. Not long ago, we talked about the 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Ralliart, which was essentially the two-door “EVO” everyone wanted but never got. But long before it, there was this – the short-wheelbase-only Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution. And there’s a lot to say about it.

Check Out The New Mercedes AMG SL Testing At the Nurburgring

The AMG-developed 2022 Mercedes AMG SL is getting closer to production

The 2022 Mercedes AMG SL is getting closer to production. We first saw the AMG version of the next SL-Class in January when, once again,it was spotted doing cold-weather tests. This time, the exact same car from January was caught on the Nurburgring with the same amount of camouflage. This indicates that Mercedes will probably not show us more than that until the SL’s debut.

Toyota TS010 Was a Group C Car That Could Break Your Ribs

The Story of Andy Wallace and the rib-breaking Toyota TS010

Throughout the years, automotive history has recorded many worthy achievements. Some of them praise the car, others praise the driver, and sometimes both. This was exactly the case with British racing driver Andy Wallace and the Toyota TS010, both of which literally share blood…or cracked bones. The most fanatic of car enthusiasts find some romantic aspect about a car that can hurt you, but was it really the car, the racetrack, or a combination of both that resulted in the incident?

This Porsche GT1 User’s Guide Is Probably the Best Video You’ll See This Year

This Porsche 911 GT1 User’s Guide can cause some drooling, as well as bad financial decisions

There are cars out there that have cemented themselves as the ultimate car from their respective brand. Although occasionally, the title of flagship supercar is being passed on as new models come by, the 911 GT1 “Strassenversion” was the ultimate road-going Porsche, in the 1990s. Strangely enough, we get a detailed User’s Guide to it, by DK Engineering TV, which prides itself as being a Ferrari specialist channel. Apparently, they like other cars as well, and looking at this chassis number 5 Porsche 911 GT1, we understand completely.

Cringe In Pain As You Watch the Glickenhaus 004S Go Through Crash Testing

Crash-testing this detailed Glickenhaus 004S is both painful and strangely satisfying

Crash-testing a car is, sadly, an unavoidable and expensive procedure, if a manufacturer wants to make a road-legal car. The YouTube channel AMMO NYC has mostly to do with car detailing tutorials, but it’s not limited to that. However, the following video is quite different from the channel’s usual itinerary, as it takes us on a ride in the Glickenhaus 004S prototype, which is about to be crash-tested.

Cool Shooting Brakes You Probably Didn't Know About

Cool Shooting Brakes You Probably Didn’t Know About

These rare shooting brakes are more practical versions of iconic sports cars

Nowadays, the shooting brake body style is often associated with performance. Think of it this way – if a station wagon/estate is a more practical version of a sedan, the shooting brake is basically a more practical coupe. The initial purpose of the shooting brake was to transport hunting parties and their equipment, but over time it graduated into what can be described as a sports car/ station wagon hybrid. Many carmakers and coachbuilders started experimenting with the philosophy and these rare shooting brake versions of iconic sports cars attest to that.

The limited edition McLaren 720S Gulf celebrates the newly-formed partnership between McLaren and Gulf Oil

Gulf Oil is not the giant it used to be, but its livery will go down in history as one of the most recognizable in motorsports. The sky-blue and orange arrangement has blessed some of the most legendary race cars ever made – the Ford GT40, Porsche 917, McLaren F1 GTR “Long Tail”, Aston Martin DBR1-2, and Porsche 911 RSR. Now, McLaren is bringing back some of that glory in the form of a limited-edition McLaren 720S, wearing the Gulf livery.

The Abarth 1000 SP Is a Funky, Retro-Styled 4C

This retro-styled Alfa Romeo 4C is a love letter to the 1966 Abarth 1000 SP

Sometimes, when a car gets discontinued, it continues to live through other models. Such is the case with an example of the now-deceased Alfa Romeo 4C. To put things in perspective, we have to go back to 1966, when Fiat was racking up racing wins in a small lightweight speedster. The car in question was the Fiat Abarth 1000 SP – an FIA Group 6 car with a 1.0-liter inline-four that made105 horsepower.

DeTomaso Guara - The Forgotten Mid-Engine Car From The 1990s

The De Tomaso Guara is one of the most obscure mid-engine cars from the 1990s

The 1990s were a great period when it comes to cars. The Lamborghini Diablo, Honda NSX, Porsche 911 (993), Ferrari F355, and many others spawned in this period. Those, however, are just a few of the many examples. It seems that in the 1990s everyone was hell-bent on making a performance car worthy of immortalization in the automotive archives. The De Tomaso Guara is one of those cars that didn’t manage to achieve the iconic status it aimed at. Nevertheless, there’s a lot to like about it, and we are going to share everything we know.

This silver Ferrari F-50 boasts a soundtrack worthy of its aesthetics and performance capabiltiies

There are certain places in the world where seeing supercars roaming around the streets is nothing out of the ordinary. The city of London is certainly one of those places. “TheTFJJ” is an enthusiast YouTube channel and a self-proclaimed stalker of exotic cars. The channel has some amazing footage and, occasionally, we get some inboard shots as well. This time, we have the pleasure of watching a silver Ferrari F-50 in action. That said, this Ferrari has an interesting modification, which may or may not enhance its presence, depending on different opinions.

2021 BMW 128tii by Dahler - a Pocket Rocket With No Remorse

Swiss tuner Dahler has made the BMW 128ti more powerful than the M135i

“Turismo Internazionale” – it sounds Italian, but it’s actually what the “ti” designation on some compact BMW models stands for. After years of absence, we see it once again, on the 2021 BMW 128 ti. While the Bavarian hot hatch provides great performance and aggressive enough aesthetics, the Swiss tuning company has decided to turn the 128ti to 11, by improving almost every aspect of it. What came out of it is the 128tii (Turismo Internazionale Iniezione), which is an homage to the BMW 2002 tii.

Porsche will now allow you to build your own special Porsche. Within reason, of course.

Having the ability to customize your car brings a special degree of exclusivity to one’s ownership experience. Porsche is not new to the car customization scene, but in recent years, the company has limited itself to simply giving us limited versions of their cars. That’s not to say they are bad, on the contrary, actually, but bespoke features were left in the past.

What JDM Really Stands For

Explaining the meaning behind JDM

The car community is a vast one and there are plenty of different categories, based on different criteria. Depending on the type of car, you have communities dedicated to American muscle, classic cars, exotic cars, etc. It can vary by nation or brand – German cars, American cars, Alfa Romeo, BMW, Ford, etc. Those are just a few examples.

BMW’s First Electric M Car Will Sound Kind of Like A Space Ship

BMW M has enlisted the help of Hans Zimmer to create a soundtrack worthy of an M-car. This is how the new all-electric BMW i4 M50 will sound.

Even we - car enthusiasts - must acknowledge that EVs are now part of automotive culture. Although there is still a debate around their sustainability or even the point of EVs in general, one aspect we can all agree on is the sound, or more specifically the lack thereof. BMW M has recognized that electrification has taken away an important aspect for the car enthusiast, so they have enlisted the help of legendary composer Hans Zimmer in order to try and create a thrilling futuristic sound for their first EV.

Renault Sport becomes Alpine Cars as a major step in Renault Group’s reorganization

It is official. The performance division of Renault will no longer be called Renault Sport but Alpine. The Renault Sport name will no longer be present on the Formula One grid, as the team is becoming a part of the “Alpine Business Unit”. Since the entity incorporates all performance and motorsport aspects of the Renault brand, this means that the performance versions of Renault, like the Megane RS, will be under the Alpine name going forward.

Genesis continues churning out awesome new vehicles. The Korean luxury brand skips plug-in hybrids and goes straight for electrification. Another proof of that is the GV70e, which was recently caught testing in Germany, days after Genesis filed trademarks for six new EVs. A while back, we covered the EV version of the Genesis G80, called the G80e. Just Like it, the GV70e is expected to debut around the end of 2021.

The MG Cyberster Is Officially Heading To Production

The MG Cyberster Is Officially Heading To Production

It seems MG is going back to making sports cars after all as the MG Cyberster has garnered enough interest to enter production.

Not long ago, we shared information about MG’s return to making exciting sports cars. The Cyberster, as they call it, is a futuristic concept, with a retro throwback. What isn’t retro is the drivetrain, as the roadster will be powered by electricity. In any case, the MG Cyberster boasts some pretty epic figures. Although we still don’t know all the details, we do know that the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint will happen in under 3.0 seconds. In addition, you’ll be able to drive 500 miles (800 km) on a single charge – more than any other EV currently on sale.

These are some of the rarest special versions of popular Japanese sports cars

The Japanese car community is among the biggest and most fanatic automotive communities out there. Although the term JDM is being widely misused (that’s a topic for another time), there are cars out there that even the most adamant fans do not know about. Sure, everybody is familiar with the Mk IV Supra, or the R34 Skyline, among others, but even they have versions that are quite exclusive and, quite often, sold only on their home turf: Japan. These are some of the rarest versions of popular Japanese vehicles we’re willing to bet that you did not know about.

Maserati MC20 - Making The Sprint to 200 KM/H

This video showcases the Maserati M20’s launch control and acceleration

Maserati’s first supercar in over 15 years is highly anticipated. We already know that the Maserati MC20 will arrive as a 2022 model and that it will have a twin-turbo V-6. At 3.0 liters, the new engine may have half the displacement and half the cylinders of the MC12, but it more than makes up for it. With twin-turbocharging, the unit makes 621 horsepower – almost the same as the MC12 – and 538 pound-feet (730 Nm).

Although we are used to seeing highly modified vehicles (some with over 2,000 horsepower), it’s more interesting to see what a can do in its factory state.

Yet another proof of the Korean brand’s continuous expansion is the more practical version of the G70, which is almost ready for debut. We know this because the car has been spotted on numerous occasions, so a debut should be just around the corner. The sedan version of the car is already a formidable competitor. When the G70 Shooting Brake hits the market, it will compete with the VW Arteon Shooting Brake.

This 1971 Marcos GT is a proper British lightweight sports car that works on US roads better than you would expect

When we talk about well-styled classic British sports cars, the first one to come to mind is usually the Jaguar E-Type. Then there are the lightweight cars like the MGB, Triumph Spitfire, and Austin Healey. The Marcos GT is one of those “other” cars that are slightly more obscure and not quite as well-known to most. Luckily, Jay Leno once again does a great job at introducing us to what he believes is “the most unusual and prettiest sports car of all time”, and he’s not alone.

Affordable Ferraris That Could Make Great Future Investments

Affordable Ferraris That Could Make Great Future Investments

These 8 cars from Ferrari will not break the bank...too much

Whether you are a car enthusiast or not, it’s common knowledge that owning a Ferrari signifies certain success in life. Of course, owning a Ferrari comes at a great financial cost (and sometimes more, if your wife does not approve), so it’s better to make sure you can afford one in the first place, before taking the leap. That said, even Ferraris aren’t safe from depreciation, unless they are highly exclusive, and these few models, listed below, are a perfect example.

Maintenance costs can still be sinfully expensive, but on the plus side, some of these cars have already bottomed out in terms of price, which means they could be a good investment in the long run.

These cars featuring Apple design cues give some idea to what a full Apple lineup might look like

Cars and smart devices may sound like an odd mix, but nowadays pretty much any big corporation is having a go at making cars. Some years ago Google tried it and now manufacturers like Huawei have announced their first car. We also know that Apple is working on a car and is aiming for a debut in 2024. But what happens when you take already existing cars that we know, and apply design elements, taken straight off the Apple product lineup? These five renderings answer the question.

The strange BMW M5 test mule has got us wondering what BMW is working on

It seems BMW might be working on another version of their M5, as a test car was spotted on the street with what seems to be a wider track. This forced the engineers from BMW to put extended fenders. It’s not just the track but the tires that are wider. To give some perspective, the normal BMW M5 has 275 mm wide rear tires, while the M5 Competition has 285 mm wide tires. On the photos, you can clearly see that the rear tire width is 295.

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Ralliart - What Mitsubishi's Sports Car Should Have Been

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Ralliart - What Mitsubishi’s Sports Car Should Have Been

This Mitsubishi Eclipse is basically a two-door Evolution, and the fate of the Eclipse could have been different.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse was one of the most praised compact Japanese sports coupes. Sadly, the third generation of the car (2000-2005) was a letdown, compared to the success of the previous two. The fourth-generation was significantly better, but shared too many similarities with the previous model, like the lazy transversely-mounted V-6, which at least had power this time and the front-wheel-drive layout.

Although the 3.8-liter 24-valve SOHC V-6 had a decent output, everyone wanted it to be the sleeker two-door equivalent of the Lancer Evolution. This meant a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four and all-wheel-drive. Apparently, the specialists from Mitsubishi’s Ralliart department thought the same, which is why they got to work on making the Eclipse we all wanted. This resulted in the, introduced at the 2005 NAIAS, Mitsubishi Eclipse Ralliart Concept.

Unexpected Alternatives to the Toyota GR86

Unexpected Alternatives to the Toyota GR86

The new GR86 is a fun affordable sports car, but it still costs more than some are willing to pay. These cars are worth considering if you are hesitant to pay the GR86 sticker price.

The 2022 Toyota GR86 and Subaru BRZ twins are back in their second generation and better than ever. Given that cars are getting more and more expensive, it’s good to see manufacturers are still willing to make cars that more people are able to buy. The GR86 and BRZ have a bigger 2.4-liter naturally-aspirated flat-four with 231 horsepower and 184 pound-feet (249 Nm).

With that being said, the new BRZ still costs $28,845 and the GR86 around $31,000, which is more money than some people are willing to part with. Luckily, there is a surprising amount of alternatives out there that can provide similar levels of fun at a lower price.

AMG’s hybrid supercar has been a regular “guest” at the Nurburgring, but this time, the camouflage is off, revealing every detail of its exterior.

Here's Why The 2022 Nissan Z Is Better Than You Think

Here’s Why The 2022 Nissan Z Is Better Than You Think

The 2022 Nissan Z shares a lot with the 370Z and that’s actually a great thing

The 2022 Nissan Z is currently one of the hottest cars around, even before it has actually gone on sale. After 13 years of milking the 370Z, the Japanese brand has finally come up with a new Z-car. The formula is the same – two seats, rear-wheel-drive, a powerful engine up front, and a manual gearbox (unless you get the automatic). Essentially, it’s a proper old-school sports car. That said, a known fact is that the new Z will carry a lot of stuff over from the 370Z. In the minds of some, this hardly justifies the purchase of the new Z, but we are here to tell you why using bits from the 370Z is actually a very good thing!

The Restoration Of This Forgotten, BMW E31 850i Will Make You Feel Warm and Fuzzy Inside

This 1991 BMW 850i gets much deserved love from its new owner

YouTube is full of people creating automotive content. The amount of car content is staggering and ever-increasing, but among the oddest bunch of people on YouTube are the “automotive masochists”. Although not the first one to come to mind (that would probably be Hoovie’s Garage), “M539 Restorations” is a channel focused on the unenviable task of bringing old BMWs back from the dead.

Sreten – the founder of the channel – is an IT guy, but you’d never guess from watching him engaging in this sadistic endeavor. This is actually part four of his “project Marseille” – he names every project after a city and this is the codename of his 1991 BMW 851 E31. He previously got “this glorious turd” running, and now, he’s going to attempt to get it driving.

In this case, it’s the latter, as he walks us through a very rare and forgotten version of the Porsche 911 – the 996 40th anniversary.

Chinese carmakers are not playing around and Silk-FAW’s recently-acquired Italian know-how proves that.

If you had any doubts that Chinese carmakers are being serious, this will definitely put them to rest. We have known about the Hongqi S9 Chinese supercar, which will be made in Italy, for a while now, but the plot is thickening. Now we’ve learned that the hybrid supercar is styled by the same man responsible for the Audi R8 – Walter da Silva - who is now Silk-FAW’s vice president of styling and design. But that’s not all.

Porsche is a brand with enormous history, significance, and racing pedigree. Needless to say, their cars don’t deserve much of an introduction, simply because of the cult status they’ve achieved. This, of course, extends to their mainstream models and, more often than not, their respective limited editions. With that being said, there are some Porsche projects that, for one reason or another, did not come to fruition or simply remained in obscurity. This is exactly the case with the below-mentioned cars.
