Want to know what happens when you pit one of the lightest, most aggressive little sports cars, against a German super bike and a 600 hp French rally cross car in the rain?
Awesome, that’s what happens. Nothing but awesome!
A few weeks ago I was down at Cars & Coffee in Los Angeles, CA. This is a gathering that occurs every weekend and brings with it some of the greatest cars ever produced. Aside from such things as the odd new McLaren, Ferrari 458s and old muscle cars, one car in particular really stood out. It was a 1988 Lamborghini Countach like the one you are viewing here. This is a car that has the capacity to basically stop people in their tracks. It’s wedge shape is iconic and even though the car is now 25 years old, it’s stood the test of time incredibly well. This particular car went through a major service in 2005 totaling a whopping $40,908 and according to the seller, is ready to go.

The upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder has been the topic of debate for quite some time now and it’s not even on the road. The worlds first super car hybrid, the Spyder is said to pump out 887 hp and handle like no other road car that Porsche has ever built. Chris Harris of Youtube’s DRIVE Network recently had a chance (although a short one), to not only drive the new 918 Spyder, but do get up close and personal with the engineers behind it. Check it out after the jump.
It’s no secret that Dodge has had a long standing relationship with the Fast and the Furious movie franchise. From Dom’s 1970 Charger to the new Challengers and other Dodge products, Chrysler is banking on the fact that the F&F will continue to help bolster brand recognition with automotive enthusiasts throughout the world. The new film, Fast & Furious 6 is no exception and continues this tradition by incorporating some new Alfa Romeos into the action. Ralph Gilles, SRT CEO sits down for the cameras to tell us about the ins-and-outs of this relationship.
Fast, fun and all-wheel drive. Those were the parameters that Chris Harris set forth when he put together this comparison test between the R8 V10 Plus, Porsche 911 Turbo S and a Litchfield GT-R. All are stock except for the GT-R which has been tuned to the likes of 750 hp. However, does all that extra power necessarily make it better than its German rivals? Harris recently put this trio through a gaggle of tests to find out exactly that!

Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy. Two Spocks of different eras brought together for a battle of speed and wits in Audi’s new commercial for the 420 horsepower S7 sedan . Quinto, our new Spock, returns for his second film in the upcoming “Star Trek: Into Darkness”, while Nimoy is a veteran of seven motion pictures and will forever be our #1 Spock. And while Quinto adds a wonderfully youthful flair to the character, let’s just say that there’s no replacement for tried and true experience.
Matt Farah and the guys from TUNED are back for another season of wild rides on Youtube’s DRIVE Network. For the season opener Matt ventures down to BBi Autosport to grab owner Joey Seely’s naturally aspirated 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera. With the lightest rotating assembly around, a wet-weight of just 2,100 lbs and 276 hp, this car promises to be one of the nastiest Porsche 911′s you’re ever likely to see.
What you are about to see is perhaps the most beautiful automobile ever created. It has the presence of an Italian supermodel and the power of a well seasoned prize fighter. This is the 1969 Lamborghini Miura S, and with its mid-mounted V12, scrape-the-ground stance and symphonic exhaust note, it may just be the world’s most perfect automobile.
I’ll be honest, one of the last places on this Earth that I’d want to go is the Arctic Circle. You see I hate the cold, like REALLY hate the cold. I know I’d be missing out on the picturesque beauty and tranquility, but at days end I’d find a way to deal with it. Murph (the guy in this video) is different. So different in fact that he went to the Arctic Circle on his trusty BMW R 1150 GS motorcycle. Even though he may (or may not) have a screw lose, I’ve got to give the guy credit, as this is one thing I’d never attempt.
Like I said, I hate the cold.
