Rolls Royce Silver Dawn at Radwood Philly

How’s this for some faded 90’s glory? Actually, it’s not so faded, rather quite nice.

The Enthusiast’s Guide to the Audi RS 3 (8V)

Audi RS3 Sedan (2017) - picture 1 of 123 - Front Angle - image resolution: 1280x960

What is it?

The ultimate expression of the MQB platform, the RS 3 is Audi’s smallest RS model that may actually have one of the biggest bites. Just like their legendary Group B rally cars, it is a turbocharged 5-cylinder beast, but it’s also one you can drive on your daily commute for a very reasonable price. This is one of the hottest cars on the road right now, and it’s easy to see why.

What is it?

The Giulia is Alfa Romeo’s rival to the benchmark BMW 3 Series. It is a turbocharged sport sedan that brings some much needed Italian style and flavor to this popular segment in the entry-level luxury market.

Ferrari Testarossa at Radwood Philly

IMG_7113

Thanks to Miami Vice, the Testarossa is widely seen as the king of 80’s cars. It is a magnificent monument of excess and it redefined the style of the era. Just look at all of the gaudy body kits that came out back then, and how they all like to copy the Testarossa’s side slats.

A flat 12 engine with a gated manual gearbox and looks that absolutely slay, what could be better for Radwood than this?

A Fall Drive in the STI

IMG_7512

I don’t have much to say, mostly just the photos I shot. But the STI was finally running well again, so I took it out for a Fall drive on Sunday. It was like spending time with an old friend after a long time apart.

Podcast: Comparing Camaros, Classic vs Contemporary

Having recent seat time in both a ’69 Camaro SS 396 and two Gen6 Camaro SS 1LEs, I wanted to compare the Camaro experience between generations that are 50 years apart.

Review in the video, gallery below. Enjoy!

Bugatti EB110 GT at Liberty State Park

IMG_5211

The Bugatti EB110 is a magnificent machine, so far ahead of its time. I mean, back in the early 1990s this thing had a 552hp 3.5L quad-turbo V12 and sent its power to all four wheels. It was capable of 213 mph, which made it arguably the fastest production car on the planet in 1991.

All I know is this thing would absolutely kill at Radwood if the owner was ever inspired to bring it out for that event.

I’ve only seen two of these in person and this one is in much better condition than the other. It was quite a thrill to get to shoot this EB110 up close with NYC in the background at the Driven By Purpose Event in Liberty State Park.

Enjoy the photos!

Koenigsegg Agera XS spotted in traffic in Paramus, NJ

IMG_6524

Not every day you see the fastest car in the world on the street. Sure, this was right outside the Cars and Caffe show, but capturing an epic seven-figure hypercar like this amongst normal traffic is nothing short of surreal. Respect to the owners for really getting out and driving these cars.

Podcast: Is the McLaren Speedtail Really the F1’s Successor?

McLaren’s new hypercar is quite striking, but is it really worthy of being hailed as the sole successor in one of the most-royal automotive bloodlines? Let’s look at what this is vs. what the McLaren F1 was and see where that puts things.

1987 Mercedes 560 SEL Koenig Specials, the “Raddest in Show” at Radwood Philly

IMG_6886

This Koenig Benz was definitely my favorite car at Radwood Philly this year, and, evidently, others agreed because it won the “Raddest in Show” award.

It is the quintessential 80’s cocaine mobile, and I just couldn’t get enough of it. I mean the 560 SEL was already the top-level Mercedes of the day, shouldn’t that be good enough? Not if you’re trying to out-show all of the other drug dealers on the Miami strip. You’ll need a lot of extra sauce for that, and that’s where Koenig came in. They took your stately Benz and threw on a vulgar widebody kit, complete with Testarossa-style fake side vents, crazy offset wheels, and an enormous rear wing. The Koenig kit took your car from classy to extra sassy, and frankly, I’d be surprised if anyone who bought one of these brand new didn’t make their living selling narcotics of some type.

Enjoy the gallery of this Koecaine Benz!
