Showcase 38   Ferrari 360 CS   [56 photos]

[Page 1 ]

Back in the saddle again - The 360 Challenge Stradale is the epitome of race inspired technology for a road going supercar. Carbon replaces leather, steel, and aluminum to reduce the weight over the standard coupe, while simultaneously increasing power output by 25 hp. As far as I'm concerned, this is the best driving car I've ever taken for a spin. Subtle changes make a world of difference.

Showcase 37   Maserati Gransport MC Victory Edition    [60 photos]

[Page 1 ]

Built in limited numbers, the MC Victory Edition was built to celebrate Maserati's factory victory in the FIA World Championship with the MC12 race cars. This car sports tighter suspension, and not so subtle use of carbon fibre. The Tubi exhaust system rounds this package off nicely.

[Page 1 ]

Pratt Miller, along with the ALMS engine builder, Katech, have produced a monster! 500 Cubic inches, and well over 600 bhp naturally aspirated; the C6 RS is more than a match with the worlds greatest and fastest super sports cars. 200 MPH is nothing strange to this car. Check out this car being delivered HERE.

Showcase 34   1985 Porsche 944    [106 photos]

[Page 1 ]

One of the nicest 944's I've come across. Lighting was tough on this one; but the car more than makes up for it!

Showcase 33   2007 Callway C16 Speedster  05/28/08     [76 photos]

[Page 1 ]

Unveiled at the 2007 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, the Callaway C16 speedster is the first 200 mph drop top from Callaway, and rumbling with over 700 HP, it is the most powerful Callaway since the legendary Sledgehammer Corvette of 1988. This is also the first use of Carbon Ceramic Breaks on a Callaway makes this car stop with determination. An impeccable interior, filled with exotic leathers, and stitching, the car feels very bespoke, with few hints of the car it started life as, a 6th generation Corvette. The windscreens aren't enough to deter bugs and stones flung up on the road, so housed inside the rear deck lid are a pair of Formula 1 style helmets.

Showcase 32   2006 Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Edition  06/11/08     [75 photos]

Bentley Diamond wheels, lowered to fill in the wheel wells, and a Wald body kit which flows with the lines of the Continental GT quite nicely

Showcase 31   Guldstrand GS90 Nassau Roadster 03/26/08            [53 photos]

[Page 1 ]

Zora Arkus-Duntov created 5 lightweight hi powered purpose built racer, with the intention of building 120 cars in all before GM executives cancelled the project. One of the original racers was Dick Guldstrand, who had success racing the Gransport on the west coast. Guldstrand maintained close ties with GM through the years, and helped develop the C4's suspension, and chassis. The GS90 was the means to make the Corvette with a harder hitting punch and more aggressive styling. Packed under the styling was the bones of a racer, lowered, replaced bushings, and spring rates. The car's overhangs were reduced six inches, while the car's stance was widened by four inches. At the heart of the Nassau Roadster is a supercharged 5.7 Liter LT-1 under it's carbon fiber skin.

Showcase 30   1965 396 Corvette Coupe 04/18/08            [53 photos]

[Page 1 ]

Side exhaust, a big cam, and a big block... The faster and louder of the options one could get on the Corvette in 1965.

Showcase 29   Ford Fairlane 500 04/18/08            [48 photos]

[Page 1 ]

This car is a COPO (Central Office Purchase Order) car. Air conditioning delete, and radio delete; drag ratio rear differential, and a fiberglass hood. This car ends up being consistently faster then the 4 speed cars with an automatic transmission. This car is all business, and made to go fast on the street, and the strip. The 427 offers power to spare, with it's big Cobra Jet carburetors, and steel braided fuel lines.

Showcase 28   454 Stingray Corvette 04/18/08            [61 photos]

[Page 1 ]

This one is a survivor. It's paint shows some imperfections over the last three decades, but the coat still shines in the sun brilliantly! The engine looks, and sounds fantastic, and the car feels solid.

Showcase 27   2000 Mustang Cobra R 04/17/08            [66 photos]

[Page 1 ]

The 2000 Mustang Cobra R was the penultimate Mustang from inception through to today. 385 HP 5.4 all aluminum DOHC V8, integrated roll cage, giant wing, and deep front splitter. This car means Business! The looks are extreme, the performance is extreme. A dream car for those who crave a hot lap time.

Showcase 26   2008 Corvette Z51   04/20/08            [42 photos]

[Page 1 ]

LS7 Heads, 6.2 Liters of displacement, and the more aggressive suspension setup, the Z51 package offers 436 horsepower, and world competing performance, head turning looks, and a great value.

Showcase 25   B7 Audi RS4   04/08/08            [56 photos]

[Page 1 ]

A return to the RS badge on the A4 platform after an entire generation without it; Audi performed the proverbial perfect 10 with its' high reving 4.2 liter V8 without the aid of turbochargers. Wide fenders, and a lower stance mark this as a serious performer.

Showcase 24   Greenwood Corvette   04/02/08            [52 photos]

[Page 1 ]

During the mid 70's, John Greenwood was successfully racing and winning in the Trans Am Championship, flaunting a Star Spangled liveried wide body Corvette. While the Oil Embargo was hitting the industry it's hardest, John was keeping sports car excess in the eye of the public with the Greenwood GT, a street version of his wide-body race car. Some love it, others aren't so keen. In any case, it is unique, and quite rare!

Showcase 23   Saleen Mustang S281 SC  07/13/07            [34 photos]

 

[Page 1 ]

Saleen seems often overlooked in the Magazines lately with their troubles of 2007. Suffice to say, the S281 Supercharged Mustang is more then a competent over achiever when compared to the GT500, and Roush Stage 3 even. The sights, the sounds, and the experience are all here.

Showcase 22  Lamborghini Gallardo Spider  06/11/07            [50 photos]

When Audi took over operations at Lamborghini, the Gallardo became known as the "Baby Lamborghini" Which is only a half truth. The car is a phenomenal platform with years left in its chassis. The V10 says only one thing, "Italian" while the drop top here exudes even more voluptuous curves then its coupe sibling.

Showcase 21  Porsche Carerra GT  08/24/07            [72 photos]

Created to win the GT1 LMS with a 5.0 liter V10 screaming at 10,500 RPM; the rules were changed early on in this project to force the screaming V10 to breath asthmatically. Instead, Porsche built this car for the masses, over 1300 in total. It is incredibly presice, dynamic, and visceral. Porsche moved the benchmark of a super performing road car like has never been done between 1900, and 2004 with this car. It is a car full of technology, yet appeals to those who love to drive, not those who are driven.

Showcase 20  Ferrari 288 GTO  07/02/07            [86 photos]

The first Ferarri supercar originally intended to go into Group B racing with its small displacement twin turbocharged V8. This car is surprisingly modern and easy to drive. It's sinister wheel arches let traffic ahead know what is coming! Amazing looks, superb sound, excellent ride quality, and superb driving dynamics make this one of the best cars Ferrari made, if not the best up through that time.

Showcase 19  Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano  09/29/07            [54 photos]

Over 600 hp, 8000 RPM, and 200 mph... all while being one of the most comfortable GT cruisers in the world. It drives like the logical successor to Ferrari 550 Maranello, Carbon Ceramic brakes, and the most advanced F1 transmission in the entire lineup at Ferrari, boasting a 0-60 sprint of 3.5 seconds!

Showcase 18 1967 Mustang Shelby GT500  07/20/07            [31 photos]

The Legend pure, raw, and unadulterated performance for only the most demanding drivers.428 Cubic inches displaced, and enough street cred. to worry even the biggest of muscle cars at the lights on Woodward Ave.

Showcase 17  Ford GT  07/20/07            [65 photos]

The fastest car in production between 2005 and 2006. The Ford GT was a massive undertaking by the Blue Oval to not only compete against Italian super sports cars, but to actually take the fight to them, so to speak, and win. It is such a shame that Ford didn't take the GT into the Le Mans GT1 racing class.

Showcase 16  Bugatti Veyron  08/30/07            [103 photos]

 The greatest car made between 1900 and 2007. A Masterpiece of automotive excellence. If ever there was a penultimate automobile, this is it. It drives like a million, looks like a million, and goes like a million. and For $1.4 million, it succeeds in all imaginable ways!

Showcase 15  Hemi Challenger  11/01/07            [50 photos]

[Page 1 ]

The definitive answer to the Muscle Car era excess is the Dodge Hemi powered Challenger R/T. This car is all business, four to the floor, and an exhaust note to match the casual driver. The engine has plenty of lope to spare on idle, and history has shown the legendary 426 Hemispherical head as the engine to beat on the street when the rubber hits the pavement.

Showcase 14  Callaway C12  11/01/07            [46 photos]

[Page 1 ]

Back in 1997, Callaway introduced their version of a world class supercar. The Callaway C12 was an engineering masterpieces showcasing racing technology directly on the road, while having a entirely unique style separating it among the rare and exotics of the world. The Callaway C12 is a true 200 mph supercar that can easily be used any day.

Showcase 12 Lamborghini Murcielago  10/30/07            [54 photos]

[Page 1 ]

Sometimes, it seems the Murcielago has seemed dated, at times its as if Lamborghini may have lost their flair. After a day with this 2004 Murcielago, I am certain it still has the Rock and Roll that was deeply embedded into the original outrageous supercar: the Countache.

Showcase 11  Ferrari F40  8/11/07            [49 photos]

[Page 1 ]

The Ferrari F40... What can be said that hasn't been said already? The first true 200 mph production car that was ever made, it will always be something extraordinary in the automobile world; even as we are now able to traverse speeds above 250 mph on a street car being produced right now! The F40 remains an icon. Even as we traverse tremendous speeds never seen before... the F40 is a pure bred race car, then made roadworthy. It is a lightweight, ready to tackle the greatest tracks in the world with ease....  Only the driver is to blame, not the car. Enjoy!

Showcase 10  McLaren Mercedes SLR  6/11/07            [44 photos]

[Page 1 ]

2003 quickly became the year of the supercar, and McLaren's first re-entry into road car production, aided with the help of Mercedes Benz. The "McMerc" has been touted as "too much Mercedes, and not enough McLaren." After spending some time with this car, I can say with confidence that this is very true. It is extremely different to the Enzo, and feels more like a standard Mercedes with a big engine then anything else. The seats are the exception to this rule, and the styling. Enjoy!

Showcase 9  Enzo Ferrari  5/30/07            [70 photos]

[Page 1 ]

The car that is named after the man. Rolling sculpture, and extremely minimalist. This car is made to win races, even if the series doesn't exist for it. Not a scratch on her, and full Tubi exhaust make for the complete package

Showcase 8  Bentley Continental GT  5/23/07            [41 photos]

The Bentley Continental GT is a superb winter car, but, as an enthusiast, it just doesn't fit the bill so well. Enjoy!

Showcase 7  Aston Martin Vanquish  5/23/07            [41 photos]

A few photos of an Aston Martin Vanquish. The sound is among the best in the world, but the interior seems to fall behind other luxury GT's.

Showcase 6  2006 Bugatti Veyron - part 1 6/23/06            [35 photos]

The most amazing car on the planet in production form. Bar none. After this encounter, I find myself both liking this car much more; and significantly less.

A brilliant car, and surprisingly much better then the 03/04 Cobra was.
