2021 Ferrari Portofino by Mansory
Ferrari unveiled the Portofino at the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show. Launched as a successor to the California T, the Portofino sits at the bottom of the company’s hierarchy. Being the entry-level model, it is one of the most important products for the Italian automaker. The sales numbers reflect its popularity, and that is perhaps why it is quite a hit amongst aftermarket companies, too.
German aftermarket company, Mansory, has come up with its unique take on the Ferrari Portofino. Surprisingly, it isn’t as wild asother Mansory builds we’ve seen so far. The forged carbon elements along with the yellow and black theme make this Italian car with a German twist look sweeeeet. And, did I mention it now makes over 700 horses and takes just three seconds to sprint to 62 mph?
Ferrari Isn’t Ready To Kill Off Its Naturally Aspirated V-12 Yet
Ferrari has been very busy through the first half of 2021, introducing – as of the time of this writing – two “new” models: The 812 Limited Edition V12 and the V-12 Targa that is the 812 Competizione. These cars are a big deal because it’s widely believed that, thanks to increasingly stringent emissions regulations and the forced transition to electrification, the days of larger naturally aspirated engines like the Ferrari V-12 are about to come to an end. This, however, may not be the case – at least not if Ferrari has anything to say about it.
2021 Audi R8 LMS GT2 Exclusive Color Edition
You don’t really see Audi come up with such stuff, but the automaker has revealed a ‘Color Edition’ of its most powerful product - the R8 LMS GT2. But, in all fairness, it deserves to be pampered with such appearance editions, considering it is the German automaker’s flagship race car. Audi is offering it in six different exterior shades, each one looking better than the other. There are no changes made to the cabin or the drivetrain, but you can’t expect much with a premium price increase of just $13,000.
The Baltasar Revolt is a Spanish, RWD, Electric Track Toy For The Road
The mainstream automotive market had a lot of big players, and it was close to impossible for new automakers to rise from the ground. But, the EV-olution has changed this. It allowed for a lot of new startups to venture into this world. Companies like Rivian, Lordstown, Bollinger, and even Fisker, to an extent, could get some limelight because of electrification.
There seems to be no end to this because a Spanish automaker called Baltasar has come up with an electric track car called the Revolt that looks swell and has some interesting specs and features.
2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast by Carlex Design
The curves on the Ferrari 812 Superfast can make any car enthusiast drool. The chiseled body with the cuts and creases in the perfect places make this one of the better-looking supercars you can see on the road today. The company is even coming up with a convertible version of the 812 this year, which will be the first time in over five decades that you can buy a new V-12 convertible from the brand.
Polish aftermarket company, Carlex Design, recently laid its hand on this beauty to give it a unique twist. Since the 812 Superfast is a looker anyway, Carlex did the smart thing to not mess around with the exterior, and instead, has tastefully designed the cabin to perfection.
2022 Aston Martin V12 Speedster DBR1
Aston Martin has come up with a DBR1-spec V12 Speedster which pays homage to the namesake 1959 Le Mans 24 Hours winner. This will be an optional package that brings about aesthetic changes to the exterior and the interior. There are no changes made to the powertrain specs. Aston Martin hasn’t even mentioned the price of this package, but expect the final cost of the V12 Speedster DBR1 to cross $1 million. That’s a lot of money.
The Hennessey Mammoth 1000 SUV - The Ram Charger We Deserve With Supercar-Slaying Performance
Someone Paid Porsche 911 GT3 Money For this 1981 Porsche 924
The Porsche 924 was manufactured between 1976 and 1988. Although it was launched as a successor to the 914 and was supposed to sit at the bottom of the company’s model hierarchy, it came with a lot of significant bits and marked a lot of firsts for the company. It was the first street-legal Porsche to feature a front-engine and rear-wheel-drive layout. Not to mention, also the first car from the company to come with an automatic gearbox.
There were many iterations and models of the 924, one of them being Carrera GTS. The automaker built 59 examples of it and 15 of them were the quicker ‘Clubsport’ models. One of these 15 was on Bring-a-Trailer’s auction recently and it was sold for over a quarter-million dollars! That’s way more expensive than any new 911 that you can buy today.
A Porsche 911 Turbo S and a McLaren 720S Roll Onto the Drag Strip - Can You Guess Who Wins?
Quarter-mile times were a big thing back in the 1960s when the big American companies were operating by the motto "win on Sunday, sell on Monday." It’s no longer used as a business model nowadays, but quarter-mile times are still a cool way to measure performance. In today’s comparison, we take a look at an exciting drag race between the Porsche 911 Turbo S and the McLaren 720S thanks to Carwow.
2019 Lamborghini SC18 Alston
From the outrageous styling, to the thumping V-12 powerplant, to the breathtaking performance, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is anything but boring. But that’s not stopping one lucky owner from turning the volume knob up to 11 on their Raging Bull. Say hello to the SC18 Alston, which comes with race-spec aero and a track-ready attitude to set it apart from its more “standard” brethren. And although it’s designed for track use, the SC18 Alston is still road-legal, bringing the best of both worlds into wing-tastic harmony.

The Ares Panther Might Have a DCT, But You Can Still Pretend To Shift Your Own Gears
There are cars out there that truly deserve to have a modern-day successor. Without a doubt, the De Tomaso Pantera is one of those cars. Luckily, the people from Ares Design are of the same mind, which is why they’ve given birth to the Ares Design Panther. Although from every angle, the car looks like a worthy successor to the original, we will be focusing on one of its distinctive features – the gated shifter.
2022 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible
Bentley recently unveiled the most driver-centric, drop-top Continental GT model to have ever come out of the Crewe manufacturer’s plant – the Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible.

2021 Mansory F8XX
Not long ago, Mansory showed us the Ferrari 812-based Mansory Stallone GTS. Now, they brought out a new project, in the form of the
based Mansory F8XX. Mansory are one of the few tuning houses that aren’t afraid to touch some of the most exclusive and expensive vehicles. And although for some, their modifications are not easy on the eyes, they manage to enhance the design without being vulgar. The latest example is their F8XX, which now looks like a vicious track version of the Ferrari F8.
Hilarious: K-IDEA - The Rambo Lambo Takes Gstaad
Lamborghini’s LM002 was the original super-SUV. It had the looks, it had the power, and it surely had the off-road ability. While today’s SUVs and off-roaders rely on a bunch of electronic gizmos to carve their way through rough terrain, the LM002 did it with brute force. That’s what we call strong personality.
2020 Ginetta Akula
British race- and sports-car builder Ginetta attended the 2019 Geneva Motor Show with its latest creation, the Akula. Named after the Russian word that translates to “shark,” the Akula looks every bit like an asphalt predator. The Akula combines an attention-grabbing design with a low-weight carbon-intensive construction and Le Mans-derived performance equipment. That’s an excellent formula for a niche model that’s looking to strike down the titans of its segment. Can the Ginetta Akula do it? We’re going to find out.
2018 Maserati GranCabrio by Pogea Racing
German tuning company Pogea Racing crafted an all-new tuning kit for the Maserati GranCabrio, and consequently, for the Gran Turismo. The dated Italian sports car from Maserati is on its last legs on the market. We can expect discontinuation as early as next year, but that did not stop Pogea Racing from creating a one of a kind tuning kit for what is, probably, one of the most beautiful designs in the history of the automobile. Based around the GranCabrio, the Pogea Racing kit includes suspension tweaks, an engine upgrade, and interior modifications. External body kit? None of that I am afraid; however, the Maserati GranCabrio and the GranTurismo are already astoundingly beautiful.
2021 Lamborghini Huracan EVO by Novitec
Novitec has a great deal of experience in tuning and developing packages for exotic cars. This time around, it has laid its hands on the Huracan EVO RWD. The German tuner has developed a styling package that includes carbon fiber elements, a new set of wheels and tires, and an upgraded suspension system and exhaust system. The package, however, doesn’t include any power boost or drivetrain upgrades.
2022 Porsche 911 GT3 RS
With the “regular” 911 (992) GT3 out and official, all eyes are now headed towards the GT3 RS. As expected, the more hardcore version of the already hardcore GT3 will feature more of everything - except for the weight, of which it will have less. The most important thing is that the latest most track-focused normally-aspirated 911 is underway, and here’s what we can expect.
1973 Chevrolet Corvette Motion Manta Ray GT - The Definition of Rare
The Chevrolet Corvette was always a beautiful car, but sometimes what comes out of the factory isn’t exclusive enough. In the 1970s, many C3 Corvettes were subjected to various enhancements, making them even more unique. It was the era of flared fenders, flashy wheels, catchy graphics, and a complete lack of subtlety. One such example is this 1973 Chevrolet Corvette Motion Manta-Ray GT, which is one of only three cars customized by Baldwin-Motion.
2021 Bentley Continental GT3 Pikes Peak
Two years after breaking and making a record at the 2019 Pikes Peak, Bentley is looking forward to another fruitful year this time at the event.

This year, Bentley wants to go for the Time Attack 1 record, and for that, it has created a car that runs on renewable fuel. How about that?
2019 Ferrari 488 Pista Spider
The Ferrari 488 Pista Spider joined the 488 lineup at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as a replacement for the 458 Speciale Aperta. The Ferrari 488 Pista replaced the iconic 458 Speciale, and it’s the first of its kind to hide a turbocharged engine under the hood.
Just when we thought that Ferrari settled for the Aperta name for its convertible sports car, Maranello returned to using the old Spider badge. But this is arguably a small issue here, as the Pista Aperta is just as exciting as its coupe sibling, but with extra headroom when the top is removed. The 50th drop-top model built by Ferrari since 1947, the Pista Spider made its global debut in the United States, where convertible sports cars are more popular than everywhere else in the world. Let’s have a closer look at the latest member of the 488 family in the review below..
