Last of a dying breed, the Mitsubishi homologation specials. With plenty of gaping holes and spoilers sticking out from everywhere, it was like a DIY store on wheels. We should all be so lucky to have had so many rally bred road cars, rather than pity for it being our last. The Lancer Evos made it into WRC history and into our hearts with such uncompromised design and focus. This is a celebration of the Evos finest hour and how we can honour it fittingly.
Nothing represents better loyalty like the owners of JDM cars.
It doesn’t matter the price of the car, it’s only about connecting with it and your friends. Lowered and slow, stoped in meetings, or just you and them on an intermittently lit road, screaming at 9000 rpm
The Busso engine is a 60º V6 engine made by Alfa Romeo from 79 to 2005. It was developed in the early 70s by Mr. Giuseppe Busso and is consider by many as the most glorious-sounding six-cylinder road engine ever.
This Edition is a tribute to the legendary 155 V6 TI
This rock star won in the DTM Championship in 1993 with the drivers Alessandro Nannini and Nicola Larini, the latter also the first in the Drivers Championship with no fewer than 10 wins out of 20 races
This edition is a tribute to the magnificent RB26 Engine.
"The first 2.6 L RB26DETT was rated by Nissan at around 276 HP (206 kW) @ 6800 rpm and 260 lb·ft (353 Nm) @ 4400 rpm. By the end of production, power levels had gone up to around 276 HP (206 kW) @ 6800 rpm and 289 lb·ft (392 Nm) @ 4400 rpm, not only because of developments and modifications to the engine, but also because of the "Gentlemen's Agreement" made between Japanese automakers to limit the "advertised" horsepower of any vehicle to 280 PS (276 HP). The RB26 is widely known and became quite popular for its strength and power potential, making it a modification friendly platform for tuners and aftermarket modifications in general. It is common for modified engines to achieve outputs of 500 hp+. Some of the most extreme and extensive modifications done to the RB26 have resulted in figures of 1000 hp+, even up to 1,638 hp."
The 80's brought us many styling cues, some more questionable than others, but rarely has any interior detail been able to ride the wave of time so well as this dash layout. Well balanced and clear to read as form followed function with this mechanically inspired watch glass to gauge conditions under the bonnet.
Leading on from the demise of Group B racing, Ferrari had an unused 288 GTO Evoluzione race car that was like nothing it had built before. So, for its fourtieth birthday, Enzo decided to adapt the 288 race car into a road car. The term road car needs to be taken with a pinch of salt, because with 478 bhp and less than 1,300 kgs, the F40 has been described by Gordon Murray as "a big go-kart with a plastic body on it". This bare, raw race car for the road, unlike anything that had been seen, and far from anything seen since, is what made the F40 the legend it is today, easily one of the most recognizable cars for both its beauty, and its superstar narrative. The F40 (project F 120 A) was the last car to be developed under Enzo's watch, and has definately become a symbol of his achievements.
The simply iconic BMW E30 had quite a long life with fourteen years of production. With its light (1,080-1,200 kgs) and agile platform, the E30 was to bring a new notion of dynamic driving to the masses, all due to much of its suspension being developed by CAD, a technique BMW had learnt when developing the E28. This was a turning point for BMW in terms of model lineup, and commercial success. The world met the first M3 model, M in this case meaning Motorsport. The E30 M3 wasn't the top of range, neither did it have the largest engine, not even close, it was simply, the Motorsport model. From garage queens to drifters, we love the E30 and five 3er generations later, we still find ourselves salivating for them, as their value in the classifieds can show.
Following on from a long line of previous CSL models launched by Munich, the M3 CSL was born a classic. Released with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tyres that don't work in the rain and a 250 km/h speed limit that could be raised to 280 km/h upon presenting a C racing licence, a simply uprated car this was not. Featuring the S54B32HP (High Performance) engine exclusive to the CSL, this produced 17 bhp more than the standard M3 due to goodies such as the motorsport carbon airbox that along with the thin-walled exhaust system will warn a CSL is on its way before you see it. The modest power hike came hand in hand with the 110 kg weight reduction, bringing the CSL meaning true to its name, Coupé, Sport, Lightweight.
This edition is our tribute to the legendary Cosworth YB Engine.
Based on the older Pinto engine block, the Cosworth YB series is a 4 cylinder 2.0L engine series that were introduced in the road-going Ford Sierra RS Cosworth in 1986. 5.000 units were initially build for homologation purposes in Group A rally but in total, 7.145 were built. On this edition, we present you the YBT version of this iconic engine which is known by it’s high tuning capabilities achieving up to 680bhp with the Garret T4 turbocharger, and for its performance and recognition, we decided to call it "The Queen of the British Engineering"
Born in 1984, the 205 GTI is one of the coolest and most successful hot-hatches ever made. With engines like the 1.6 and 1.9 liters alongside a superb chassis and only 1000kg, the 205 GTI is a pure joy to drive. This edition is the result of a collaboration with the Portuguese youtuber and race driver Hugo Marcos from Car Online TV.
