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?

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

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.

Aston Martin V12 Zagato at the Scarsdale Concours

IMG_6737

There is always a unicorn or two that shows up for the Scarsdale Concours. This year it included this stunning Aston Martin V12 Zagato. 1 of just 150 to grace this earth of ours this car backs up its beauty with an enthusiast recipe for the ages… a screaming V12 engine with RWD dynamics, all controlled via a manual transmission. It’s damn close to perfection.

Enjoy!

Highlights from the Scarsdale Concours

We love the Scarsdale Concours because it has a much more relaxed vibe than most other Concours events and while it’s not huge in size, the cars are always top notch. This year did not disappoint. We’ll let the gallery do the rest of the talking.

Enjoy!

Gemballa Mirage GT at Cars and Caffe

IMG_6053

This is one of those unicorns you just don’t see. It’s a Gemballa Mirage GT, a heavily modified Porsche Carrera GT of which only 25 exist worldwide. This was my second time seeing this car, but the first time I was able to get any photos of it. It’s absolutely incredible.

Once the owner left I saw it fly by on the highway, 670hp V10 at full chat, and it sounded like a LeMans prototype. It’s awesome to see this car in a car show, but it was really unbelievable to see it screaming past normal traffic. It really made my day!

Enjoy the gallery!

Highlights from Cars and Caffe at Garden State Plaza Fall 2018

IMG_6014

I love Cars and Caffe because it draws the entire enthusiast spectrum, everything from beater Miatas to classic muscle cars to heavily modified cars to million dollar hypercars. It’s a real show of enthusiasm for the automobile, and there’s no other show quite like it.

I’m a firm believer that car people are largely the same, just at different socio-economic levels. The person in the E46 M3 would be the one in the Ferrari 488 if he had more money, and vice versa if the person in the Ferrari had less money. You can really see that when you go to a show like this.

Naturally, I tend to focus more on the exotics in my photos, despite me being the guy rolling up to the show in a Miata. Rest assured, I’d do the same with a Pagani if I had those sort of means.

Lots of people really love cars, and that becomes crystal clear when you’re at this show. There is hope yet for the enthusiast automobile!

Enjoy the gallery.

A wild purple McLaren 720S at Liberty State Park

I love the McLaren 720S and this is by far the wildest one I’ve seen. The car is like a spaceship in general, and this purple and orange example has an extra alien appearance.

Enjoy the gallery!
