Ugly Car Spotlight – Subaru Impreza Casa Blanca

Ugly Car Spotlight – Subaru Impreza Casa Blanca

Here’s looking at you, kid. Unfortunately.

Barring its concept cars, Subaru isn’t exactly known for pumping out gorgeous exterior designs. Functional? Dependable? Fast? Yes to all three, but either way, styling remains a real weak area for the Six Star brand. Unfortunately, the Impreza Casa Blanca is proof positive of that, and it quite possibly takes the cake for ugliest production car ever.

Apparently, Subaru decided to update the 1999 and 2000 model year Impreza with this hideous body kit to capitalize on a renewed interest in retro cars. Incredibly, upwards of 5,000 examples of the Casa Blanca were built. Luckily, this monstrosity was relegated to the JDM market only, which means those of us residing in the U.S. don’t risk losing our lunch after accidently seeing one of these things out on the road.

Just look at that front end and those taillights! The whole thing is a mishmash of contradictory styles, botched together by groan-worthy details that make us want to run for the hills. It’s slow too, mounting a naturally aspirated 1.5-liter boxer four in its deformed nose.

What do you think, dear reader? Is this indeed the ugliest car ever made, or is there something else out there that’s even worse? Let us know in the comments!

Would You Pay Nearly $100,000 For A Paint Job?

Would You Pay Nearly $100,000 For A Paint Job?

Porsche’s "Chromaflair" paint finish costs over half of what you’ll pay for a Porsche 911 Turbo S

The price for vanity can run deep, especially when we’re talking about a car like the Porsche 911 Turbo S. The base price for one here in the U.S. already adds up to $190,700, and that’s without all the bells and whistles that can run costs up to comfortably north of $200,000. Now if you really want your 911 Turbo S to stand out, there is a color option called Phyton Green “Chromaflair” that will no doubt get the job done. The only caveat is that availing of this color option will set you close to an extra $100,000. Do the math and that price tag is more than half the cost of the actual 911 Turbo S. Vanity, ladies and gentlemen.

Porsche Exclusive didn’t say how it got to that specific price tag for the paint job, nor will it ever, given the number of trade secrets that are likely involved in creating that exclusive color. What we do know, thanks to an Instagram post by PTSRS, is that the “Chromaflair” treatment is also available in three other color variants, including blue, gold, and violet. According to PTSRS, the violet Chromaflair version had been on display in the past at Porsche’s factory in Zuffenheisen, joining the Phyton Green version that was showcased at the Nurburgring recently. These exclusive paint finishes may not be the most expensive add-ons in the market – imagine the options Bugatti’s offering for the Chiron – but they’re no less going to burn serious holes in your wallet.

"Fast And Furious Live" Brings The Action To Arenas Everywhere

"Fast And Furious Live" Brings The Action To Arenas Everywhere

Vin Diesel made the announcement, though details are still murky at this point

As if eight full-length movies, a series of video games, and a handful of short movies aren’t enough to satisfy our craving for anything Fast and Furious, we’ll now be treated to a series of live shows featuring Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto talking about, well, Fast and Furious. Yes, Fast and Furious Live is apparently a real thing now, and I don’t know exactly how I feel about it.

No less than Diesel himself confirmed the news in a Facebook post that straddled the line between revealing and confusing throughout its entirety. Diesel even donned his Dominic Toretto garb to briefly talk about the live show, something he said that hasn’t been done before, at least in the planned scale that he and his team are preparing for. That said, Diesel doesn’t seem to know the full schedule of the live show just yet, only revealing that he thinks the first show will be held at the 02 Arena in London before trekking the world for the succeeding installments. There’s a website – fastandfuriouslive.com – that’s also been created to find updates, but at the moment, there’s little else but Facebook and Instagram posts, as well generic teasers in it. Still, this Fast and Furious Live show appears to be something that’s happening soon, possibly at an arena near you.

2018 Ford F-22 F-150 Raptor

2018 Ford F-22 F-150 Raptor

Truck auctions for $300,000 to benefit youth in aviation

Ford Performance created a one-off F-150 Raptor styled after the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor fighter jet for a charity auction benefiting kids’ interest and participation in flying. Called the Gathering of Eagles, the annual event is hosted by the Experimental Aircraft Association. This year, the auction raised $300,000 thanks to Ford’s donation of the “F-22 Raptor.” The truck obviously takes its name and styling cues from America’s premier fighter, going so far as to incorporate the jet’s silhouette into its grille and side mirrors. But that just scratches the surface of what Ford did to this 2018 F-150 Raptor Crew Cab.

The Raptor boasts a Whipple intercooler and other performance upgrades on its high-output, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, giving it an impressive 545 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque – a healthy improvement over its stock 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of twist. The bodywork received carbon fiber fender flairs, custom LED lighting, power-deploying running boards, an aggressive wheel and tire package, and that silver-over-black paint job. These, combined with other upgrades, helped the truck garner a $300,000 winning bid, beating out last year’s winning bid of $295,000 for a P-51D Mustang-themed 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 called Ole Yeller. Making the winning bid more special – it was from Gary Ackerman of Gaudin Ford in Las Vegas. Ackerman serves as Honorary Commander and Ambassador for the U.S. Air Force’s F-22 Squadron at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.

2017 Pagani Zonda Riviera

2017 Pagani Zonda Riviera

Another Pagani Zonda F is reborn into a spectacular one-off creation

They say that fine art speaks incredible stories while sitting still as people look at them. In a lot of ways, the Pagani Zonda is the farthest thing from fine art, particularly that it doesn’t do well in an idle state. Then again, the Zonda is also, in other ways, the epitome of fine art. It’s limited nature and exotic qualities make it precious in a lot of eyes. And as far as the stories it tells, well, let’s just say they make for good conversations. Take this particular Zonda for example. It’s now called the Zonda Riviera, but it didn’t always carry the name. Once upon a time, it was a Zonda F, and in the decade that’s been alive, it’s been through quite a lot for a car of its stature.

It does seem a little odd that we’re seeing another Zonda get reimagined as a new model only a week after seeing another of its kind, the Zonda Fantasma Evo, go through the same treatment. These events do speak of the age of the model and the fact that it’s been 12 years since Pagani rolled out the Zonda F means that we’re likely to see more of them in the near future. For now, though, the Zonda Riviera takes center stage, as the Zonda Fantasma Evo did last week. it doesn’t quite have an eventful story as Fantasma Evo - that one literally came back from a crash - but it does have a tale or two in its pocket, as most Pagani Zonda Fs that have aged rather nicely will tell us.

2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 S By Posaidon

2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 S By Posaidon

Care for four-digit levels of horsepower in your Mercedes-AMG saloons?

There may be a new-generation Mercedes-AMG E63 S in town now, but just because that’s the case, that doesn’t mean the previous-generation model will just fade out into the sunset. Noted Mercedes tuner Posaidon seems to think that there’s still some untapped potential left in the “old” AMG E63 S, and like any tuner worth its salt, Posaidon set about unlocking it with a new program that delivers a staggering 1,090 horsepower, more than what today’s lineup of hypercars are capable of.

Wrap your heads around that number for a second. 1,090 horsepower for the Mercedes-AMG E63 S. Sure, the mid-sized performance saloon is capable of handling that much power, but not without a lot of help, or at least in this case, a bigger engine up front. That’s the scope of what Posaidon has done. Not to mention the work Posaidon put in, which speaks to the kind of upgrades it’s offering for the Merc-AMG. It’s admittedly not for everyone, but for those who prefer supercar-levels of power out of the E63 S beauties, the German tuner’s power offering is about as high as it’s going to get. And in case it’s a little too out of reach for a customer’s sensibilities, Posaidon does have other options on the menu, specifically upgrades that “only” bring out 850 and 920 horsepower, respectively. I suppose the output numbers, in this case, are relative, but then again, even an 850-horsepower AMG E63 S is going to be a whirlwind to drive.

2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Blue Arrow by Edo Competition

2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Blue Arrow by Edo Competition

German tuner gets serious on Porsche’s resident superstar

Just in case it isn’t abundantly clear by now, the Porsche 911 Turbo S is a legend. It’s regarded as one of the most iconic models in history, as it has been ever since it was launched in the market 54 years ago. The sports car’s appeal is unlikely to lose its luster anytime soon, and it’s that particular timeless quality about it that has made the 911 such a popular model in the aftermarket tuning circle. The current-generation 911 has seen its fair share of programs from tuning heavyweights like TechArt, TopCar, and Gemballa. Now it’s edo competition’s turn to get in on the action and the German tuner didn’t disappoint with a 675-horsepower creation called the 911 Turbo S Blue Arrow.

It’s a fancy name for a fancy tuning program for a fancy sports car. It also happens to be potent beyond words, not to mention capable of achieving incredible amounts of speed and power that fits into the performance legacy of the Porsche 911. It’s fitting, too, that this program comes from edo competition, the same tuner that’s responsible for some of the most impressive tuning creations in history. Remember what it did to the Ferrari Enzo all those years ago? I don’t expect this creation for the 911 Turbo S to match that in power and performance, but I do know that it doesn’t need to. The Porsche 911 Turbo S is its own unicorn, and edo competition did it a solid by sprinkling its pixie dust all over it.

Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR Special Is Now The Fastest Four-Door Sedan Around The Nürburgring

Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR Special Is Now The Fastest Four-Door Sedan Around The Nürburgring

Race-version of the WRX STI Type RA owned the ’RIng

When Subaru revealed the WRX STI Type RA NBR Special back in June 2017, it brought a lot of attention back to the Japanese automaker’s resident performance crown jewel, the WRX STI. Not that it needed to because we all know what the WRX STI is capable of. Still, the Type RA NBR Special isn’t a standard race car even in the traditional sense. It’s capable of a lot more and it proved as much when it lapped the Nordschleife track at the Nürburgring in a staggering 6:57.5 minutes.

Not only did the 600-horsepower sedan racer go under the seven-minute barrier, it did so quite handily, turning in a time that easily eclipsed the previous lap time record held by the Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio, which posted a lap time of 7:32 in the same course last year. For comparison’s sake, the WRX STI Type RA NBR Special’s pace is almost equivalent to the lap time posted by the Porsche 918 Spyder. The record-breaking lap time will probably not stick in the record books for the simple reason that the WRX STI Type RA NBR Special isn’t a production model the way the Giulia Quadrifoglio is, but let it be said that when talking about the fastest four-door sedan to ever lap the 12.9-mile Nordschleife track at the Green Hell, the Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR Special just made the Giulia Quarifoglio look like a tortoise.

Subaru Enthusiast Makes Intake Out Of Cardboard, Goes Faster: Video

Subaru Enthusiast Makes Intake Out Of Cardboard, Goes Faster: Video

This is duct tape engineering at its finest

Folks like us do some pretty silly things in the name of performance. Whether its justifying the purchase of a new Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio as a “family car,” or breaking your back running coilovers on the daily driver for a few seconds per lap on the weekends, you wouldn’t be wrong for calling our perspective “skewed” at best. That said, where there’s a will, there’s a way, as evidenced by this intrepid young Subaru driver’s unorthodox approach to boosting horsepower. Documented in a short five-minute, 21-second video from our friends over at 1320 Video, the Subaru in question is a mostly stock early 2000’s Forester running flat out at the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack event at the Colorado Springs Airport. In a bid to crest the 100-mph mark, the driver fabricated a new intake from a Pringles can and cereal box, plumbing it through the headlight for a budget-friendly ram air effect. The result is just enough extra power to reach three digits, making this driver our new hero.

Never mind the Mustangs and Vipers this kid is running against. We’re much more interested in the box-shaped, 15-year-old grocery getter chipping away for a personal record. This is real enthusiasm, people, and it’s infectious. Fingers crossed the owner continues to have fun for years to come.

Car for Sale: 1992 Porsche 911 RWB

Car for Sale: 1992 Porsche 911 RWB

A positively immaculate widebody Stuttgart superstar hits the used car market

Usually, when you see the phrase “No expense was spared on this build” in a craigslist ad for a modified vehicle, the result is either extremely impressive, or a complete mess. Luckily, it’s the former when it comes to this gorgeous early ‘90s 911. Even though it’s got 132,324 miles on the odometer, this thing is practically new, with a slew of high-end performance components that work well to bring out the best in the 964-era coupe. It’s dubbed the RWB Hollywood, and Akira Nakai from Rauh-Welt Begriff takes credit for the build. If you’re drawing a blank on the name, here’s the rundown – RWB is a Japan-based tuner of all things 911, and is best known for churning out some of the most outrageous Stuttgart stunners in the world, combining form and function in a single custom package. Unique, eye-catching, and quick – these are the things that make a RWB 911. And now, you can get one in Miami for about $150,000.

Mechanically, the RWB mounts a 3.6-liter, air-cooled six-cylinder engine in the rear, which send power to the rear wheels by way of a G50 manual transmission. The whole shebang was stripped down and re-sprayed in its original Grand Prix White paint scheme, and come complete with a full RWB 964 body kit. It’s a head-turner, that’s for sure, so read on for the details.

2017 Abarth 695 Rivale

2017 Abarth 695 Rivale

Special edition Abarth 695 joins the 695 Rivale 175 Anniversary in honoring yacht-maker’s long and storied history

The Abarth 500 has been on the receiving end of some interesting special edition models in the past. We’ve seen the Abarth 695 Biposto Record, the 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition, and the 500 Track Experience, among others. None of them, though, can lay claim to the title of being the “most sophisticated Abarth ever.” That distinction, according to Abarth itself, now rests on the shoulders of the 695 Rivale Special Edition.

Developed specifically to celebrate the company’s close ties to yacht maker Riva, the 695 Rivale is the physical embodiment of the premium luxury that goes into the craft of building those sea vessels. Safe to say, that “most sophisticated Abarth ever” title fits the 695 Rivale. It’s inundated with aesthetic features that shine a big spotlight on the nautical theme of the compact car. Inside and out, the 695 Rivale is decked to the brim with luxury, the kind you expect from any one of the yachts that Riva has built in its 175-year history. The special edition Abarth 695 doesn’t pack any power or performance upgrades, but that’s an inconsequential omission when you compare it to the quantity and quality of cosmetic additions given to the hot hatch. There’s no word yet on how many models Abarth plans to build of the 695 Rivale, but another special edition model, the Abarth 695 Rivale 175th Anniversary, is limited to just 350 units, divided into 175 units for the coupe model and another 175 for the cabriolet version.

Update 2-19-2018: We stopped by a showroom in Paris and snapped a few shots of the Abarth 695 Rivale. Check them out in the gallery below!

1965 Ford F-250 Six-Pack – An ICON Reformer Project

1965 Ford F-250 Six-Pack – An ICON Reformer Project

This rare Ford gets a frame-off restoration and Cummins power

Imagine having a vintage crew cab pickup with all the style and flair from a bygone era in design mixed with modern mechanicals and creature comforts, all capped with a outright obsessive level of detail crafted from the finest materials available. That’s exactly what we’re seeing here. This 1965 Ford F-250 Six-Pack is the newest member of ICON’s Reformer series of builds. Its outward appearance looks properly vintage, but its body hides a 5.9-liter Cummins turbodiesel and Dodge 3500 underpinnings.

ICON has made its quite a name for itself over the years building custom vehicles based on vintage iron. The scope ranges from the “Derelict” series that puts modern mechanicals under an almost untouched, original body with its beautiful patina still intact to high-end Bronco and FJ restorations that are far superior to their factory-fresh condition. The California-based independent company will field nearly any customer request, regardless of difficulty, so far as their bank account will allow. That is clearly on display with this 1965 Ford pickup. You’ll definitely want to see the details in our full review.

Nissan Titan XD PRO-4X Project Basecamp

Nissan Titan XD PRO-4X Project Basecamp

Built with self-sustaining gear to impresses the overlanding community

Overlanding is growing from a niche market to the mainstream thanks to years of support from aftermarket manufacturers and the trendy idea of off-the-grid vacations. Nissan is tapping into the segment with this one-off custom Titan XD pickup designed to showcase the upgradability of the Titan XD with more than 60 aftermarket parts and accessories. The truck debuted at the 2017 Overland Expo West outside Flagstaff, Arizona where thousands gathered for the latest in overlanding gear.

Named Project Basecamp, this tricked-out Titan XD has been heavily modified to improve its off-road performance while carrying hundreds of pounds of equipment necessary for sustaining life miles away from civilization. The Cummins-powered Titan XD’s most prominent modifications include steel bumpers, fender flares, six-spoke wheels wrapped in 35-inch all-terrain Nitto tires, and the large cargo rack in the bed complete with a foldout tent. Fred Diaz, VP of Nissan America Trucks, said, “Overlanding is an exciting form of outdoor adventuring, taking participants into sometimes extreme terrain and climate conditions. We’re using the Project Basecamp to showcase the Titan XD PRO-4X model’s potential as the perfect platform for truck owners thinking of taking their adventures to the next level."

Isle Of Man Deploys BAC Mono Police Car

Isle Of Man Deploys BAC Mono Police Car

Surprisingly, the high-performance speed machine isn’t part of the Dubai police fleet… yet.

British-based performance automaker BAC (Briggs Automotive Company) and the Isle of Man Government have joined forces to create the world’s first BAC Mono police car. While the single-seater, formula-style supercar probably won’t be used to detain suspects (strap them to the hood?!), it will “become an active member of the fleet and will also be on show at a number of local festivals to encourage safe and responsible driving.”

BAC has worked with the Isle of Man before, as the automaker previously used the local roads for car development, as well as to host various client driving events. The law enforcement iteration gets a special police livery. Tasked with driving the Mono is PC Andy Greaves, a police motorcyclist and collision investigator with advanced driving skill. “We are here to promote safe use of the road, and it’s amazing how many people want to talk to you when this is your transport,” Greaves said.

2017 BMW M3 GT2 S Hurricane by G-Power

2017 BMW M3 GT2 S Hurricane by G-Power

Super popular sports coupe gets retrofitted with a monster tuning kit

Out of sight, out of mind. That’s a prevailing theme among forgettable cars in the auto industry. But every so often, a car captivates the business to no end that people have a hard time keeping them away from their memory palaces. The previous-generation BMW M3 counts as one of those vehicles. At one point, Automobile even described it in reverence on the level of how a four-year-old treats Santa Claus. It’s safe to say that the E92 BMW M3 will remain relevant for a long time and we can all look to the aftermarket tuning scene as a big contributor in keeping the last of the M3 coupes’ spirit alive. G-Power counts itself in this group and it even has a new tuning kit for the “old” M3 that pops the coupe’s power all the way up to a staggering 709 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque.

Officially, the German tuner calls its creation the M3 GT2 S Hurricane. It’s a nod to the old Hurricane programs that the E92 M3 was treated to when it was making hay as one of the best performance coupes in the world. It’s good to know then that even if the M3 coupe has been out of commission for three years now, owners of the model still have the opportunity to turn their prized M3s into certified rockets on four wheels. That’s exactly what this new Hurricane program is all about. It may not be for everybody, but for M3 owners who prefer to tap into the coupe’s full potential (with the aid of an engine swap), the GT2 S Hurricane program from G-Power is a good key that can help unlock it and more.

1320 Video Features A Giant Turbo With A Honda Attached: Video

They like ‘em big down under

I’ve never been there, but I hear Australia has some pretty scary local fauna. Spiders, snakes, sharks… well, it looks like our friends over at 1320 Video found another crazy bit of local wildlife, and it’s got an H badge on the hood. I’ll just cut straight to the chase – what you see before you is a very petite Honda S600 stuffed with a very boosted Toyota 2JZ engine. As if that wasn’t enough, the owner grafted on a positively mammoth 88 mm turbo, blessing the 2,400-pound import with 1,200 horsepower at the rear wheels! It’s enough to run the quarter mile in 7.7 seconds at 167 mph, which ain’t bad for a half-century old tin can.

Of course, I say that with the utmost respect. This build is extremely clean, and the whole car looks polished and sleek, especially under the hood. But if you think seeing that ginormous turbocharger peeking out of the hood borders on the ludicrous, just wait until you see this car attack the drag strip. Watching the Honda race, it looks cartoonishly fast, like it should be leaving a hazy outline of a two-door hatchback at the starting line while lifting the front wheels off the black stuff. Awesome!

Quick Drive: Jeep 75th Salute Concept

Quick Drive: Jeep 75th Salute Concept

Storming Daytona Beach in a modern Willys MB

Everyone knows Jeep’s long and storied history began with the onset of WWII. The original Jeep, the Willys MB, was the answer to the U.S. War Department’s need for a lightweight, go-anywhere reconnaissance vehicle. Willys-Overland developed the design, while Ford assembly lines helped meet production requirements. Fast-forward 75 years to 2016, and Fiat Chrysler’s Jeep division built a one-off commemorative recreation of the MB using the modern Wrangler. The result: the Jeep Wrangler 75th Salute. And thanks to the 2017 Jeep Beach gathering, the Salute and I stormed the beaches of Daytona, Florida, some 4,300 miles east of Normandy.

There were no mortar shell or .30 caliber rounds whizzing by, but the 75th Salute and I were shot with plenty of stares, pointing fingers, and camera shutters. The Jeep certainly commands attention, especially juxtaposed to the sea of shiny Wrangler JKs with 20-inch chrome wheels and LED light bars. The Salute stands out in its simplicity, armed only with a hemp recovery rope for an accessory. Even that was standard issue in 1941.

Be a Loyal Lexus Customer and you Might end up Getting your own Special Edition Car

Be a Loyal Lexus Customer and you Might end up Getting your own Special Edition Car

Apparently, it pays to stick to one auto brand

Automakers show different ways of appreciation to their loyal customers. Some treat them to special events. Some give them discounts on their purchases. Some do a combination of both. Then there’s Lexus, which not only treated one of its loyal customers with a car of his own, but an actual one-of-one creation built and developed specifically for him. The car in question is a Lexus LS 600h, although it’s more formally known as the Lexus LS 600h L Centenary Celebration Edition. It was built for Barry High OBE, who had just celebrated his 100th birthday and whose landmark centenary is the official inspiration behind the one-of-a-kind Lexus LS 600h L.

Apparently, the celebrant is one of Lexus’ most loyal customers, a distinction he earned for his loyalty to the Toyota-owned Japanese luxury brand. In the last 16 years alone, the man has reportedly bought as many as 25 Lexus models from the Lexus Cheltenham dealership alone. There’s no word on how many Lexus models he’s owned over the course of his life, but the fact that he’s been purchasing from the same brand for years was all the reason Lexus needed to honor him with his very own one-off LS 600h L that’s about as exclusive as Lexus model is going to get. The car itself didn’t come cheap as the celebrant reportedly spent close to £100,000 for it. That converts to about $128,000, which is right around the price of the standard model.
