Yeah there is a small list of vehicles approved for “Show and Display” importation. They can be brought in, but have a *very* limited amount you can drive them. There is also another small list of vehicles that can be imported of you have
They’re a pretty serious bit of kit. Developed by Akebono (they also develop brakes for Formula 1) theyre 390mm (380 rear) of carbon ceramic infused with silicon carbide. Apparently they can stop the P1 from 100kmh in 30 meters. Long story short, this car
From Wikipedia: >The engine was a 2.0 L (121 in³) straight-6 based on the engine in the top-of-the-line Toyota Crown sedan. It was transformed by Yamaha with a new double overhead camshaft head into a 112 kW (150 hp) sports car engine. The car
I’m sure this spoiler could be designed to be much smaller, yet also much more functional. So? Since when did the *You’re only allowed to modify cars with parts that are track-functional, lest you be labelled a poser-douche* thing become a rule? Should cars
We use (RON+MON)/2 in the US while they just use the RON in Germany which is usually a higher number. For instance, Wikipedia says Aral Ultimate 102(Germany) has an RON of 102 octane but the (RON+MON)/2 is 95 octane.
TBH it seems like there’s a broad shift in the technology being used in the entire auto industry to get as much mpg out of a big engine as possible these days, obviously since gas prices have askyrocketed since then. 10-20 years ago I
I’ve talked with a Rolls Royce technician, designer, bespoke consultants, and sales person (Along with a few other brand’s designers and such.). You can get anything you want. It’s not “You probably can.” It’s “You can because, **A.** It’s on the option list of
I’ve seen one in person, too. These pictures don’t give it justice. They manage to be even better looking in person. Absolutely fantastic looking things, aren’t they? Took my breath away.
I love this car, I wrote a blog post about it here: http://backgrinder.com/2013/02/26/the-greatest-car-that-was-never-built/ I really wish someone would make a limited run of them, maybe use a Mustang or Camaro engine and buy suspension components off the shelf from high performance vendors, that sort

There is plenty of room for a diffuser. The reason there are no diffusers on new(er) RSRs is because Grand Am bans them, but I don’t think they were banned in 1976. Also, with the modern RSRs’ huge wings, you don’t want to uplift
In this case though, it’s shit. The car was first designed back in ’99 by a body shop guy and an entrepreneur, none of which (if you’ve noticed) know of any mechanical work. The car has a history of blowing through gearboxes and generally
at first it was said, that he wanted the 599 v12 engine (Tipo F140C) build into the 458 chassis but this never happened, so he got this tribute to 512. btw. there are some more ferraris that were build by the factory for special
wow, this could very well be one of the best timed pictures of all time. how the hell could anyone down vote this???
I appreciate the courtesy. Yes, there are hundreds of pictures *somewhere* with my plate in it and yes, I know you can’t easily go get my info from my plate number, but if my car is the focus of the picture, I like my
Just in case you or anyone else doesn’t know, It was made for GT5 by Citröen (The GTbyCITROEN), for GT6 Polyphony Digital had a special concept program which a lot of makes enrolled in. So expect many beautiful things coming out with this one.
No idea. I was under the impression that they had basically the same body, but I’m not sure. Those guys have an email on their website. I would recommend shooting them an email. Like I said, I just found that in a search, I
A blowoff valve opens when the cold side of the turbo is blowing against a closed throttle and allows the created pressure to escape to prevent damage to the turbo. It’s on the intake side and makes a blowing/hissing noise when the driver takes
Whore away! Thanks for the pics, nice ones. I gave up trying to go this year and really regret it. Had a bunch of obstacles. Someone posted a pretty big album of the many cars which I saved. I believe all three of those
It’s looking like every C7 Z06 produced does not meet what GM claimed it is capable of. That is close to 9000 I think. Last I heard they keep bullshitting customers on there actually being a problem at all when it obvious there is
The Miura was a departure to ‘the new guard’ AFAIK – engineers & designers still young enough to “know everything” used a configuration much more demanding of precise weight distribution & geometry without necessarily knowing all they could about weight distribution & geometry… Early
My neighbor said he started using Galpin for his work now since the Fisker name was so tainted by the bad quality of the Karma and other botched projects. He mentioned it when he showed me a picture of the Galpin Ford at SEMA
I remember seeing this is person with my dad at a car show. My dad wanted to go specifically because he knew this car would be there. It’s even more beautiful in person, no question.
