2017 Mazda RT24-P Revealed Ahead of Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona

I love endurance prototype racecars. They take truly concept-level ingenuity in aero and grip to the streets. Well, to the road courses and banked ovals of the racing circuits!  This new RT24-P from Mazda is a pretty magnificent specimen for blending on-brand design cues with the mandates of any race class. The RT24-P is designed to dominate the top class of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship — a new class called DPi, for Daytona Prototype International. Certainly not quick or catchy names in this new series.  But hey, it is an endurance challenge! The RT24-P name itself means the “Road …

Update1 – 2015 BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R Concept Makes Race-Ready Debut at Pebble Beach

Updated 8.16.15 with 22 new photos At this very hour last year, we were limping away from the BMW Pebble Beach mansion after a party celebrating the M5 Jahre 30 Edition and Vision Future Luxury. A day of roaming the Pebble Beach grounds left our feet blistered and bloody — but the Nikon SD card full of fantastic photos. This year, we are covering the events from afar — feet intact and dress shoes safely stowed in closet. It is cars like this new Hommage R concept that make us wish were spending $1000 a day to not drive any …

1986 Toyota Celica IMSA GTO 1

Racing Hero – 1986 Toyota Celica IMSA GTO Is a Rear-Drive Boost-Monster

There is something about this purpose-built Celica racecar that feels like the best of all worlds: rear-drive with a rear-mounted transaxle, a 2.0-liter Toyota “T” turbo engine detuned from 600HP to 450HP, and a grip setup to shame any other race series. This beautiful carbon-skinned racecar is hiding tires wider than a NASCAR racer, yet is as low as any modern hypercar. We just love its relative simplicity versus the tech-overloaded racecars of today. One purpose: be faster than anything else ever made… but only with the right driver aboard. This car earned $242,000 when sold in 2014. 1986 Toyota …

2015 Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe by IMSA GmbH Is Louder, Lower and Cooler With Subtle Stage 1 Mods

The new S63 AMG Coupe is quite a stunner right from the factory. As a first step to making it a true supercoupe, IMSA of Germany is done a hat-trick of excellent first upgrades to this white knight. The air suspension module electronically allows the car’s air suspension to crouch a bit closer to the pavement, a new exhaust X-pipe system makes it shouty and the new wheels do wonders for the big coupe’s grip and stance. The results speak for themselves. Very sexy. Makes us forget all about the CL-Class! 2015 Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe by IMSA GmbH MOBILE INDIVIDUALITY …
