The new Ford GT is a striking automobile. There’s no way to downplay the effect its design has on your senses. It’s beautiful and a spaceship at the same time, and it has taken supercar design to the next level.
We got to check this one out at the Philly Auto Show. Enjoy!
The details of the McLaren Senna are immense. This may be the most track-focused version of a supercar to-date… to the point where the car is actually illegal for road use in Race Mode.
It’s a badass car for badass people who live badass lives. People who will walk out of Starbucks with a big straw in a small iced latte, J-walk to their car across the street, and drive off in Race Mode right in front of a cop. Hell yeah, unlike airflow, society can’t hold this thing down!
The current “King of the Ring,” the new Porsche 991.2 GT2 RS is an incredible machine to behold up close. It’s so focused on speed that it’s damn near a racecar, but being a road car, all of its functional fine details have to be well-finished. All of the air vents are finished with beautiful carbon fiber and the single piece center-lock wheels are quite elegant in addition to being functionally lightweight. As an object, the GT2 RS is something very special.
I also took a look under the rear bumper at the exhaust system, and DAMN! It’s a valved Porsche Sport Exhaust like the optional system on lesser 911s, but in the GT2 RS the butterfly valve is basically just a straight dump hole out the rear of the catalyst assembly. That means the exhaust sound will be about as rowdy as can be when the valve is open, and it will only get channeled through the muffler when the valve is closed. In short, your neighbors may hate you.
But everyone at Cars and Coffee will love you, so I guess it evens out. It was a thrill to see this thing in person for the first time. Enjoy the gallery!
We visited the Philadelphia Auto Show this weekend and there were lot’s of sights to be seen. The exotics displays were as good as they’ve ever been, largely thanks to CF Charities and their friends. The hypercar game was strong, with two Bugattis and 3 very unique American offerings from SSC, Mosler and Saleen, among others. It was insane.
The rest of the show was top-notch too, with many of the latest and greatest offerings were on display. We also got to take a quick spin in the new KIA Stinger GT, and the car made a great first impression.
Enjoy the photos, some are mine and some are courtesy of my friend and co-worker Sam Chun. These are some highlights with plenty more to come.
This is one of those gifts I had wanted, but couldn’t justify buying for myself as a young professional trying to spend money on ‘real’ things. My girlfriend, Gab, knew I wanted the LEGO Ferrari F40, though, and her Mom went over and above for my birthday and surprised me with it. Needless to say, I was quite surprised, and I got excited like I did back when I was a kid. I thought it was clothes because the box was a similar shape, but it was a LEGO Ferrari. SO AWESOME!
It took me a week or two to put it together, and I was astounded by LEGO’s attention to detail. I have a diecast model of an F40 to compare, and they really did account for everything.
Once finished, I figured I’d take some decent photos of it, like I would a real car. Enjoy!
Spykers are beautifully crafted machines, as much works of art as they are sports cars. There are so many fine details to take in, and they all add up to a striking whole that will make a Ferrari or Lamborghini seem so mass-market.
This Spyker C8 LaViolette was a centerpiece at the Misselwood Concours this year. People adored it, whether they knew what it was or not.
Enjoy the gallery!
There aren’t many good Cars and Coffee events in Central Jersey, so when something great shows up, I’ll pay attention. I’ve seen this blue and white Viper at a previous event, but when it’s a GTS in the classic combination, and as well-kept as any, it’s hard to walk by. Twenty years old? Sure doesn’t look twenty years old–looks much newer than that. Enjoy the photos of the original American Widowmaker.
I am a huge fan of cars in offbeat colors, and the Porsche Carrera GT happens to be one of my favorite cars of all time. This baby blue Carrera GT is one of the staples of the collection at Top Gear Imports. I had seen many photos of it around the interwebs, but it was unbelievable seeing the car in person. Light blue has always been my favorite color on Porsches but they didn’t offer the Carrera GT in such a hue when it was new.
Enjoy the photos of this unique Carrera GT!
I know I said I was iffy on the new Lamborghini Urus, and I still maintain it’s an Audi in Lamborghini clothes. That said, these are some pretty sweet clothes Lamborghini has fitted to this corporate SUV platform. I’ve been playing around with the Urus configurator, and I’m pretty stoked about the spec you see here. I think the metallic brown paint in contrast with the bright green accents and interior gives the Urus a badass off-roader, yet distinctively Lamborghini, look.
