PostHeaderIcon Brabus 125R

I don’t know why, but there is something majestic when it comes to tiny cars powered by powerful engines. Yup; that 400+ horsepower Cygnet is awesome, but I am thinking something more civilized. Even with less than 100 horsepower, cars like the Toyota iQ, or anything from Smart are simply a lot of fun. This time around, Brabus created a rather special 125R based around the Smart ForTwo Convertible and called it the “Pocket Rocket.” Well, it is the pocket rocket considering that the German tuning company dialed up the 0.9-liter turbocharged engine, improved its suspension, and put a special makeup on a tiny car.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes Teases a New Retro Electric Concept for Pebble Beach

We already know that Mercedes-Benz is bringing a new show car to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. We also know that it’s called the Aesthetics Progressive Luxury Concept and its in-house name — Electric Silver Arrow — suggests that it’s connected to the automaker’s newly created EQ electric brand. Everything else, though, is still a mystery, and Merc’s latest teaser of the car doesn’t show anything revealing other than confirming speculation that the concept will be heavily based on Mercedes’ 1930’s racing design.

PostHeaderIcon A New Roof Design Patent Could Pave The Way For Ferrari To Bring Back The Targa

A lot of automakers have been spending a lot of time in patent offices these days. The latest to do so is Ferrari, which has reportedly filed a patent for a new targa top design with the European Patent Office. Pictures of the patent images reveal what you might expect from a Ferrari that’s sporting a targa-style roof. According to Ferrari, the setup involves a coupe body with a rigid roof that’s supported at the front up the upright of the windshield and at the back by a full-width roll bar. The roof, as expected, is completely removable.

PostHeaderIcon Ten Millionth Production Mustang Leaked Online Ahead of Debut

53 years after introducing the Mustang, Ford has reportedly put the finishing touches on the 10 millionth Mustang ever built. Multiple reports have indicated that a huge announcement is imminent, possibly alluding to the historic milestone. Adding fuel to that fire are a couple of leaked photos taken by media personality Evan J. Smith, who claims that the Mustang in the photos he posted on his Instagram page, official_ford_guy, is, in fact, the 10 millionth Mustang.

The model is specifically designed for ‘Solo Touring’ as it is a single-seater. Vanderhall is launching the Speedster at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally this week.

Flyin’ Miata, the company responsible for the best Mazda MX-5 upgrades on the market, is now offering a roll bar for the Targa-style RF model. The protective device was added to the catalog as a result of customer requests and makes the MX-5 RF safer at the race track. But there’s a catch — you lose the ability to lower the roof!

PostHeaderIcon 2005 Ford GTX1 Roadster Will Be Auctioned in August at Monterey

A rare example of the Ford GTX1 Roadster is going to be auctioned off at the Mecum auction in Monterey, California next month. The GTX1 in question is the 24th of 30 units produced by the Gennadi Design Group in Green Bay, Wisconsin. More importantly, it’s the only GTX1 in the world that’s dressed in a black and gold color scheme and has signatures of some of the most important and significant people in the auto industry, including Carroll Shelby, Roger Penske, Henry Ford III, and Edsel Ford.

PostHeaderIcon Another One Bites the Dust: BMW Z4 Roadster Fails to Negotiate Curves at the ‘Ring

No matter who you are or what you drive, the Nürburgring is one of the most fearsome race tracks in the world. Combining high speeds, big elevation changes, blind corners, and all other manner of technical challenges, the ‘Ring is undoubtedly one of the most dangerous places in the world to get your speed fix. Despite this, amateurs regularly try their hand at playing race driver here, and as evidenced in the following video, it doesn’t always go as planned.

PostHeaderIcon A BMW 507 Brought in More Than $5 Million at the 2018 Goodwood Auction!

A 1957 BMW 507 Roadster sold for more than $5 million at the recent Bonham auction at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The final price not only doubled the car’s pre-auction estimate — it was expected to fetch around $2.5 million
— it also blew past the highest price ever paid for a BMW 507 by more than $2 million.

PostHeaderIcon 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.

PostHeaderIcon Audi R8 Spyder

The second-generation Audi R8 was launched in 2015 and, despite rumors that it may be discontinued, the supercar will live on for at least a few more years. The facelifted version of the R8 coupe was spotted on public roads back in March, and now the Spyder model surfaced with similar updates.

While notable changes make sense for a mid-cycle refresh, word has it that the Spyder in out latest shots could be more than just a facelift. Audi may be working on a beefed-up version of the supercar that could carry an “RS” or “GT” badge. With the nameplate likely to go into the history books in a few years, the Germans might be looking to give it a proper send-off with a more aerodynamic and powerful version. Unfortunately, Audi is still mum on the details, so we won’t know for sure until the company spills the beans or the camo comes off. Meanwhile, let’s have a closer look at what the updated R8 Spyder might bring to the table.

PostHeaderIcon Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus Has a 650-Horsepower Throwback Roadster in the Works

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, the low-volume manufacturer that is the brainchild of James Glickenhaus, is preparing a new model to join its recent creations, the SCG 003, SCG 004S, and the Boot. The new model is going to be called the SCG 006, and according to Road and Track, it’s pegged as a two-seater, retro-styled throwback sports car that will be offered in either coupe or convertible body types.

PostHeaderIcon Mazda MX-5: The Joy of Driving – Video

Ever since it was introduced in 1989, the Mazda MX-5 has been one of the most popular models in the auto industry. The Japanese roadster is turning 30 years old, and to this day, very few models can compete with it as far as having one of the best drives in the business at its price tag.

The latest version of the MX-5 is a real peach. It may not come in the orange and green colors of the one that you can see in the video, but it looks and performs exactly like it. The latest version of the sports car — that’s the 2019 model — was introduced less than a month ago, and as expected for a car like the MX-5 Miata, it comes with plenty of aesthetic and performance improvements. The latter is manifested in the roadster’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 181 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque, numbers that represent an increase of 26 horsepower and three pound-feet of torque. Mazda accomplished that power bump by introducing lighter pistons and connecting rods to the four-banger. That’s on top of engineers tweaking the existing intake ports and fuel injectors, as well as installing a louder exhaust system that’s going to help make those joy rides that much more fun.

Outside of the mechanical upgrades to the engine, the 2019 MX-5 also received technical improvements all around, presumably done so that the current MX-5 gets to show off its capabilities before the next-generation version arrives. The MX-5’s single plate flywheel, for example, has been replaced by a dual-mass flywheel that should improve the roadster’s responsiveness. Throw in the modifications to the drive ratio, and you’re looking at a roadster that is doing its part in uplifting the legacy of its nameplate.

There aren’t that many cars in the business today that can offer the kind of bang for the buck like the Mazda MX-5. The fact that the model has been providing customers that value for the past 30 years is a testament to the model’s staying power in an industry that has unforgivingly chewed and spit out other models of its kind. And yet, as often as that has happened, the Mazda MX-5 has continued to thrive. It’s no wonder, then, that when it comes to affordable sports cars, there’s the MX-5, and then there’s everybody else.

PostHeaderIcon 5 Cars Cadillac Should Make ASAP

When Johan de Nysschen joined Cadillac in 2014, it seemed as if the luxury brand would finally reinvent itself. Marketing operations were moved from Detroit to Manhattan, a project that cost nearly $13 million, and a new strategy was penned. Among them, Cadillac began working on new crossovers, a flagship sedan, and replacements for the ATS and
CTS. Four years later and De Nysschen was sacked, a move that raises questions about Cadillac’s future.

With the man seen as a visionary out of the picture, will Cadillac remain faithful to its original strategy to roll out one new model about every six months until 2022? And if so, what new markets will the luxury carmaker enter this time? We already know that Caddy is working on a replacement for the CTS, called the CT5, as well as a smaller CT4 for the compact market, but what happens after that. It’s difficult to predict, but I have my own list of cars that Cadillac should build as soon as possible in order to become relevant on the luxury market.

PostHeaderIcon Fiat 500 Spiaggina by Garage Italia and Pinninfarina

Marking the 60th anniversary since the unveiling of the first special edition car based on the model 500 – the 500 Jolly, known as “Spiaggina,” Fiat showcased their new limited edition of the latest Fiat 500. Called the Fiat 500 Spiaggina ’58, the new model is limited to 1958 units. A number which is an homage to the year Fiat showcased the original 500 Jolly, a car adored by rich and famous of the time.

However, apart from Fiat showcasing a rather cool Spiaggina ‘58 production model based on the 500C with a 1.2-liter, 69 horsepower engine, Garage Italia and Pininfarina prepared their own celebration model. It is a better one.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB11 Volante Henley Royal Regatta

One year after Aston Martin rolled out the DB11 Henley Royal Regatta, the British automaker is back at it, this time with the DB11 Volante Henley Royal Regatta. The new one-off DB11 Volante is the follow-up to last year’s one-off DB11, which was created to celebrate Aston Martin’s role as the official auto partner of the Henley Royal Regatta, considered as one of the world’s most prestigious and historic sporting events. Like the DB11 from last year, the DB11 Volante gets plenty of exclusive features, all of which come by way of Q by Aston Martin.
