Wallpaper of the Day: 2007 Maserati GranTurismo

Wallpaper of the Day: 2007 Maserati GranTurismo

Designed by Pininfarina, the Maserati GranTurismo is one gorgeous looking car, even if it has been on the market for a decade now. It has a timeless design, though, and while it may be time for it to be replaced, the car will remain relevant for years to come, eventually becoming a collectible. After all, it was the first grand tourer that was developed under Ferrari ownership. It’s powered by a Ferrari-designed 4.7-liter V-8 that’s good for some 454 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. Channeled through a ZF, six-speed automatic, it’s good enough to get the GT up to 60mph in 4.6 seconds on the way to a top speed of 185 mph. Given the fact that its time is drawing short on the market, we decided to honor it a bit and make it our wallpaper of the day. We’ve picked our favorite and thrown in a gallery so you can do the same. Enjoy!

Amazing 1966 Ferrari Dino Berlinetta Prototype Heading to Pebble Beach Auction

Amazing 1966 Ferrari Dino Berlinetta Prototype Heading to Pebble Beach Auction

Ferrari collectors better need to have their checkbooks ready

Look at the list of the most expensive cars ever sold at an auction and at least three-fourths of the cars on that list are Ferraris. That’s important to know because another classic Ferrari is about to join its peers on that list. A 1966 Ferrari Dino Berlinetta GT is headed to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where it will be auctioned off by Gooding and Company on August 24. The classic Ferrari is estimated to fetch between $2 million to $3 million, though given how much other classic Ferraris have gone for in recent auctions, that estimate could turn out to be conservative relative to our expectations.

An Effortless Triumph to 200+ MPH in a McLaren 720S

An Effortless Triumph to 200+ MPH in a McLaren 720S

This is what happens when a McLaren 720S is unleashed

There aren’t a lot of roads in this world that’s as better to drive on than the German autobahn. We get to see why that is in this video featuring a McLaren 720S stretching its legs without having to worry about breaking any speed limits. The video doesn’t last long — it’s actually just a little over minute long — but it does paint a revealing picture of what the 720S is capable of.

Remember, this is a car that features a new 4.0-liter, twin-turbo, V-8 that pumps out 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers aren’t child’s play, folks. With that much power on tap, the 720S can blitz its way to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds as it blasts off on a top speed run that maxes out at 212 mph. The video clearly shows what that looks like when the 720S is given the freedom to really reach for its potential. The piercing sound of the V-8 is only interrupted by the sight of all the surrounding turning into a blur.

You’re not going to get this kind of experience on other roads, but that’s what makes the German autobahn so special. Remember the saying that lions can only thrive in the jungle? Well, the same applies here. The McLaren 720S is the lion, and the German autobahn is its jungle.

BMW M2 Competition Configurator Has Surprisingly Few Options

BMW M2 Competition Configurator Has Surprisingly Few Options

They will set you back around $9K though

Unveiled in 2015, the BMW M2 became the spiritual successor to the 1M Coupe and gained notoriety for being a closer rendition to the original M3 than the modern M4. Come 2018 and BMW unveiled the M2 Competition, a more powerful version of the coupe.

While Competition-branded cars are usually upgrades to the regular M model, the M2 Competition is actually a replacement for the standard M2, which was discontinued. Upgrades inside and out are rather mild, but the Competition variant stands out for featuring the engine from the bigger M4 under the hood. Available to order starting this month, the M2 Competition can now be customized through the company’s online configurator. Let’s have a closer look at the options.

Wallpaper of the Day: Dodge Viper SRT 10

Wallpaper of the Day: Dodge Viper SRT 10

Ah, the infamous and now defunct Dodge Viper. Once the most prominent American sports cars in history, it now lives on in our minds because Dodge was too cheap to design side airbags that would actually fit inside the cabin. Oh well, that’s now, but today we’re looking back at what is, arguably, the best version of the Viper that ever existed: the 2003-2010, third-gen model. Powered by an odd-firing 8.3-liter V-10, the Roadster delivered 500 horsepower and 525 pound-feet of torque while the coupe got a mild bump up to 510 ponies and 535 pound-feet. All of that lovely power was channeled to the rear wheels via a Tremec T56 manual transmission. This amazing piece of gorgeous history could hit 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and 100 mph in 8.3 seconds in roadster form. The coupe made the same 100-mph sprint but got to 60 mph one-tenth of a second faster. The beautiful and timeless design has been coming back to us a lot lately, so we decided to make it our wallpaper of the day. We’ve hand-picked some pretty cool images so go ahead and give the old SRT 10 a little bit of screen love with us.

Video: Lamborghini Teases Aventador SVJ Run at the Nürburgring

Video: Lamborghini Teases Aventador SVJ Run at the Nürburgring

Could this be a prelude to a new lap record?

Earlier this month, we reported a rumor that the Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce Jota may have reset the lap record for production vehicles at the Nürburgring, besting the Porsche 911 GT2 RS] by 2 ticks with a time of 6 minutes, 45 seconds. Now, it looks as though Lambo is teasing an upcoming announcement with a quick 28-second video clip titled “Aventador SVJ meets the Nürburgring”.

The video doesn’t provide much in way of info, instead giving us quick clips of the upcoming go-faster bull rampaging its way around the infamous German racetrack. However, all indicators seem to point towards something big on the horizon.

For now, the Aventador SVJ has yet to make its official debut, but a new lap record at the Nürburgring is certainly one way to go about it. Once it does make its official entrance, expect the Lambo to come with some rather lofty performance specs, including nearly 800 horsepower courtesy of a mid-mounted 6.5-liter V-12 powerplant. Power is sent to all four wheels, with top speed rated at 217 mph. Sounds like the right stuff for tackling the Green Hell, no?

Do you think this latest Italian monster has what it takes to best ze Germans on their home turf?

2019 Audi TT

A few small updates and more standard gear keep it fresh at 20 years old

Audi first introduced the TT as a sporty compact two-door in the late ‘90s, with the latest third-generation model arriving in 2014 at the Geneva International Motor Show. Offered as both a hardtop coupe and a drop-top roadster, Audi sends the TT into the 2019 model year with a mild refresh, including an updated exterior, a new seven-speed gearbox, and more standard equipment as well.

The next-generation Porsche 911, called the 992, has been caught testing numerous times in recent months. The sports car has lost most of the camo on the way, but some areas are still hidden from sight. But the new 911 is slowly revealing itself, and our paparazzi just spotted a car with no camo on its rear end.

Hello There! Are You The Bugatti Divo?

Hello There! Are You The Bugatti Divo?

Heavily wrapped Bugatti looks like the Chiron, but is it the Chiron?

A heavily wrapped Bugatti Chiron-based prototype has been spotted at the Nurburgring, triggering alarm bells that this model could be none other than the limited edition Divo that Bugatti announced just last week. There are no indications that this test mule is, in fact, the Divo, but with little news on the front of other Chiron derivatives these days, it stands to reason that Bugatti wouldn’t send a prototype to the ‘Ring to do testing if it has no plans to do anything about it.

Watch How the $21,000, 27-Hour Oil Change is Done on a Bugatti Veyron

Watch How the $21,000, 27-Hour Oil Change is Done on a Bugatti Veyron

Forget about how long it takes because the price of one oil change costs about the same as a brand new car

For most of us regular folks, a standard oil change typically costs anywhere from $30 to $100. It’s usually more expensive when we’re talking about premium cars, but that same train-of-thought is taken to the extreme level when we’re talking about a car like the Bugatti Veyron. The embodiment of excess, the Veyron is more than just a $1.5 million supercar that once held the title as the world’s fastest production car. Everything about it is expensive, right down to the oil change, which can ring you up a staggering $21,000.

The 2019 Audi TT Is Fresher, Meaner, More Tech Savvy, and Quick-Tempered

I expected to see a facelifted Audi TT at the Paris Auto Show later this year, but Audi jumped the gun and released a new car only days after the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The new Audi TT received superficial exterior upgrades, slightly retuned engines, and a few more options for the interior. It remained much the same as before, but it did gain new Audi nomenclature designating the version with a number. New cars include the TT 40 TFSI, the TT 45 TFSI, the TT 45 TFSI Quattro, and the TTS.

2019 Lexus RC F Sport

Lexus’ BMW M4 fighter is getting ready for another round in the battlefield

The updated Lexus RC F was recently caught testing at the Nurburgring with the bottom half of its body wrapped in camouflage. The upper half was displayed for all of us to see, but Lexus still did a pretty good job to mask the changes it made to the performance sedan. We do get a good look at some of the changes, but for the most part, the updated RC F is hiding some of the good stuff away from us. That’s not going to stop us from putting our detective hats on, though, because this is one car that we’ve been waiting a long time to see.
