Hoonage of the 1%th degree. Enjoy.
Definitely had a turbocharger, but I’m not sure what motor he had in it. It is always fun to see a bumperless 240 rolling around in public with just a big intercooler up front. The 240 crowd is an interesting bunch, and I respect their love for making most people go “huh?”. Cool Car, more pics below.
So, after an excruciatingly long wait, the details of Toyota’s new entry level sports car have emerged. After looking them over for myself, I am pleased to report that everything seems to be exactly what I had hoped it would be. The car has some serious potential to be quite a good driving experience with a curb weight around 2700lbs, manual transmission options, a limited slip differential, and a high output, naturally aspirated 2.0L boxer engine producing 200hp (do the math, that is 100hp/L). The FT-86/FR-S is showing much promise, and hopefully this means Toyota is finally going to start making viable cars again, but there are still some things this car must do before progress will truly be evident.

This car is linked heavily with the Bugatti EB-110 covered previously. B. Engineering, an Italian firm made up of many ex-Bugatti engineers, designed a chassis based on the design of the EB-110 in order to make an extremely exclusive supercar that would commemorate the turn of the 21st century.

The Nissan 240SX is famous for its appeal to the drifting crowd, just figured I would acknowledge the elephant in the room from the get go. It holds this fame because it is pretty much the ideal entry-level drift machine for many reasons which will be addressed later, but what makes the 240 great for the drifters also makes it great for other enthusiasts as well.

If you are someone who has practical needs but also desires some serious performance, then you should look no further. Subaru’s WRX line offers everything you could want from a car. It offers all of the practicality, affordability, and reliability of any normal Japanese sedan but also with outstanding performance and handling that is sure to make your driving experience less about getting from point A to B and more about the area in between. Being an owner of an 04 STi I can attest to just how much fun these cars are. Also, if you live somewhere that has varying weather, no need to worry because Subaru’s all wheel drive system will handle even the worst conditions with ease. In a WRX snow is something to be excited for, not something to be feared or dreaded. I would even go so far as to say that if you don’t go hooning around in the snow in your WRX it is the same as if you never walked your dog, it’s just not fair. Read the rest of this entry »
