Verstappen + Ricciardo + Campers = #rekt Verstappen + Ricciardo + Campers = #rekt

Not sure how to lead this – but you’ll get it once you read “caravan”. Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo find themselves thrashing some camper caravans on the Red Bull Ring. In Aston Martin convertibles, no less.

Batmobile out, keys lost Batmobile out, keys lost

Team Galag, runnning a tinkered-with AMG GT-S, a 997 GT3 RS and the Arkham tumbler (or not!) are having a hard time driving the batmobile:

Brace yourself, Canada ... Brace yourself, Canada ...

The best thing is that it doesn’t even seem doctored ... feel free to look at the actual GT output. The Boston Globe was nice enough to write about it:

What is the correct way for a spider to wear pants?

Yeah, I’m easy to please. Have this 0-200kph run in the current Focus RS as an excuse for this otherwise empty post. :)

Leaving this here … '124 Abarth Spider' Leaving this here … '124 Abarth Spider'

With talk about Abarth taking the 124 rallying, one might as well enjoy an impression of what might be coming. Behold the ‘124 Abarth Spider’ ... in Europe, the standard Fiat 124 Spider gets 140 hp and 240 Nm to play with.

Does this picture elicit any feelings from you?

Slow oppo? Have some sportscar bashing in a Twingo. Slow oppo? Have some sportscar bashing in a Twingo.

Here’s a fresh 7:53 BTG lap of the Nürburgring. In a Twingo RS. Alright, a well-developed Twingo RS with 204 hp and a rather slim 964kg to push around.

Not him ... not him! Not him ... not him!

The thought alone is pretty scary.

If the embedded video does not play nice, please jump to about 01:30 into the video if you want to hear the howl and not have to sit through music and rev-limited in-car sound.

Diligent digital auto tuner/prophet Theophilus Chin has come up with a whole Audi lineup featuring a different take on Audi grille everyone has grown accustomed to in the last decade or so.

What is the current stance on "fake" exhaust tips? What is the current stance on "fake" exhaust tips?

Dear oppo, I fondly remember the Lexus IS-F being bashed for having exhaust tips fitted to the bumper rather than the actual exhaust ends. Even back then, it was somewhat known that they went that route in order to a) create a sound they wanted and b) to avoid the bumper itself becoming too hot or even melting from…

Car&Driver quotes Heinz Hollerweger, head of Audi’s Quattro GmbH, as saying that the next iteration RS4 will come with V6 power and “more than 426 PS”.

Sudden want – RS3 edition Sudden want – RS3 edition

Audi’s RS3 is a hatchback with a turbocharged I5 engine and four potentially driven wheels. I couldn’t quite wrap my head around it when they introduced it, and it never quite made it beyond a car with a beautiful engine but not really anything else for me. Dated platform.

When I first saw the new headlight design Audi gave the A4 range, I was not too sure it was a good thing. After seeing how it could complement the looks of the (likely) coming RS4, however, I am much more positive about it.
