Donkervoort GTO Sportscar

December 21, 2011 at 11:48 am

For those who re bored with Italian and British sportscars, there’s a new Dutch car around which is quite fascinating. Donkervoort GTO is a unique car in every sense. The source of power is a five cylinder 340 hp 2.5 TFSI Audi moto with a capacity of 340 to 400 HP and a torque of 450 Nm from about 1600 RPMs. And all this with a total weight of around 700 kilos. Without a doubt one of the fastest sports cars on the European market. The GTO is clearly a size larger than its predecessors, the closed GT and the open D8 270RS. About 35 centimetres longer and 15 centimetres wider, to be exact. If you decided you ca live [...]

Ferrari 599XX Evo

November 30, 2011 at 9:46 pm

The Evolution of the Ferrari 599XX is the car by which we say goodbye to the lovely Ferrari 599. Already the fruit of the very finest Ferrari road car and Formula 1-derived technology, the 599XX now features improved chassis dynamics thanks to an active aerodynamic package integrated with the vehicles’ electronic control systems, and the adoption of new Pirelli tyres. The car is also more powerful than before (750 CV) and weighs 35 kg less. The car also gets a modified front splitter and a new rear diffuser featuring a larger surface area and redesigned fences and foot-plates. The adoption of side exhausts allowed the engineers to increase engine power by 20 CV to 750 CV (again at 9000 rpm), [...]

Subaru BRZ Production Version

November 29, 2011 at 10:07 am

The produciton version of the Subaru BRZ sports coupe has been unveiled for Tokyo Motor Show, showing a remarkably different car than the amazing STI concept. Apart from the looks though, the BRZ should be a very good sports car. The Horizontally-Opposed Boxer engine has inherent qualities of low center of gravity, lightweight, and compactness. These attributes are maximized by placing this engine even lower and closer to the center of the chassis. These factors contributed to BRZ’s low center of gravity -one of the lowest possible. The Subaru BRZ is a fun sports car that any driver can enjoy driving with peace of mind. Making full use of the design concept of the new-generation Boxer engine, the newly developed [...]

Toyota GT 86 Revealed

November 28, 2011 at 10:13 am

All of Toyota’s efforts in the past three or four years, all the FT concepts, and all the testings and evaluations boil down to this, the new GT86 sports coupe. And we are glad to report it’s not a disappointing car. Sure, that 2.0 liter boxer engine should have more than 197 bhp, but the simplicity of the car is just so charming. You have an honest sportscar here that doesn’t try to cheat the laws of physics to give yo a good drive. It has a well-sorted rear-drive chassis with a limited-slip diff and manual gearbox and 17-inch wheels. The ingredients re not stacking up for a disaster, are they! This unique powertrain format combines with the world’s most [...]
