Custom Showcase – Porsche 991 Turbo S on Gloss-Black HRE RC100s

Totally different but no less appealing makeover of this fly yellow 911 Turbo S. The multi-spoke RC100 wheel style from HRE in gloss black is a nice, modern take on the classic BBS racing alloy.  It looks dripping-wet at all times, and disappears into a whir at speed. All perfect upgrades to the gloss-black whale tail, roof and mirror caps of this Cali-plated Turbo S.

Custom Showcase – Porsche 991 GT3 on HRE R101s in Satin Black

Satin black is really the right shade of custom wheel for 2016. It flicks enough light to enhance any wheel design — while feeling brighter in low light than a glossy finish.  The HRE R101 wheel style is quite cool too: the spokes feel super strong despite their thin size. Much 3D shaping for those uprights — their sharp creases making a nice contrast to the soft/smooth GT3 bodywork. Despite being just 19s, these are clearly an integral part of this custom GT3’s curb appeal. Custom Showcase – Porsche 991 GT3 on HRE R101s in Satin Black Porsche 991 GT3 with …

2015 McLaren P1 on HRE P101 Forged Alloys in Brushed Dark Finish

So many musclecars! How to get an ultra-modern mood back? The P1 on HRE P101 alloys, of course! The finish chosen is called Dark Brushed Clear, and is a great complement to the somewhat reserved silver paint finish of this car.

Bell & Ross BR-X1 Skeleton Carbon Forgé Leads New Lightweight Timepiece Collection

A new dream-watch just launched!  The Bell & Ross BR-X1 is named to honor the Bell X-1 supersonic test plane from 1947 — and employs tech just as advanced for 2015 watchmaking. Four initial styles of the BR-X1 are part of a very limited-release initial collection. The favorite of ours is the Carbon Forge model — as it has a very unique marbled finish, tinted sapphire crystal, and should be much lighter than the typical BR watches. Milled from single pieces of alloy, the heft of their watches makes you feel important. But does take time to get comfortable with …

2016 Nissan Leaf 4

2016 Nissan LEAF Scores Big EV Range Bump With New Li-ion Battery and Touchscreens

  The Nissan Leaf is a cult hit. Like Tesla zealots or early Prius adopters, LEAF-ers absolutely love the machine. Up and down the west coast, Atlanta and DC — the Leaf is as common a sight as an Altima. These cities and regions have pushed hard to roll out charging infrastructure in their city centers and beyond, with helpful tax incentives to buyers also part of the mix. But since the Leaf went on sale in 2010, there has not been a huge incentive for these loyal ‘silent mafia’ of EV drivers to upgrade to the new Leaf. A …

2.6s 2016 Donkervoort D8 GTO Bare Naked Carbon Edition Cuts 200Lbs from Chop-Top Track Rocket

Imagine a supercar with the fundamental proportions and track manners of a Lotus Seven, but thoroughly updated in every way except altering that wild wheelbase. Yes, keep the twin bucket seats virtually atop the back axle, and keep the mid-mounted engine behind the front axle as far as possible. But swap the floppy frame rails for a lightwieght and super strong chromoly racing frame. And lose those steel panels and retro lighting completely. While we’re at it, add a 380-hp Audi 2.5-liter turbo Ur-Quattro engine descendent. A full exterior redesign and gangster stance thanks to a big jump in width …

2.3s, 1020HP 2015 ULTIMA Evolution Is Quickest Car In World?!

As McLaren GTR models, Porsche GT3 and Ferrari XX cars show — there is a huge business for track-focused and track-only supercars. Stripped of production frippery and shod with racing shocks and rubber, these cars are undoubtedly more intense and more focused on track. But what if you went the other way entirely? Instead of beefing up a production supercar for racing, how about adding some comforts to a pure race-car? The result is the very new 2015 Ultima Evolution Coupe and Spider. Three power outputs of Chevrolet Racing V8’s are available, with the top dog delivering a massive 1020 …
