What makes the Carrera 2.7 RS such a special 911? Well, it was the first 911 to use the Carrera designation due to Porsche's class victories at the famed Carrera Panamerica, and the first 911 to use the RS moniker. The name means business, and so does the rest! The 2.7 RS was based on the top of the range 911 S, featuring some pretty extreme measures in the pursuit of performance. While enlarging the engine to 2687cc, the cylinder walls were left as thin (light) as mechanically possible, just like the bonnet, roof and wings were made from steel 0,08 mm thinner than on the standard model, these features resulted in a giant slayer, which is why we lovingly titled this hommage as "Lightweight Division". Porsche had planned to build 500 examples as the first 911 homologation special, what they weren't expecting was that all would be sold within a week of being presented at the Paris Motor Show in 1972! These special cars are easily identified by the low chin spoiler, famous ducktail rear spoiler and, being the 70's, a contrasting Carrera sticker all along its side.
R35 Edition With the first powerplant to part from the straight six ethos of all other previous GTR´s, the VR38DETT certainly gave us a new angle on how we perceive japanese sports cars in terms of all out performance. This is a hommage to Hiroshi Hasegawa and the historic powerplant he contributed to our culture.
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 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.
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.
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.
Limited edition - Only 300 prints will be produced!
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.
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.
With only 502 road going examples ever built, 500 being black, the long named Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16v Evolution II was apparently completely sold out before it was presented at Geneva in 1990. The Evo II wore a heavily revised bodykit compared to its predecessor, this was developed in a wind tunnel at the university of Stuttgart by Prof. Richard Eppler where it famously reduced drag and increased downforce. Rumours had it, that BMW's research and development chief, Wolfgang Reitzle commented: "the laws of aerodynamics must be different between Munich and Stuttgart; if that rear wing works, we'll have to redesign our wind tunnel." Apparently, they did! The Evo II went on to emphatically dominate the 1992 DTM series with the championship win and 46 podium finishes.
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"
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
Replacing the E30 was never going to be an easy feat. The world had changed a great deal so the E36 had a lot to live up to. Designed by Pinky Lai (great name) and Boyke Boyer, the third generation 3 series was heavily dependant on aerodynamics and other new areas of technology where refinement and efficiency would become joint objectives in BMW products. The E36 was larger (13 cm longer wheelbase), more powerful, impregnably reliable, equally frugal and a higher quality product than its predecessor, handling was improved via multi link rear suspension and the M3 range saw a surge of 60% more power with its 3.2L six cylinder S50B32 engine (that would serve as a base for McLaren F1's power unit). Showered with awards throughout its lifespan and racing wins with the M3 GTR and 320i, the E36 left us as a defining icon of the 90's.
