Emerald Green McLaren Senna Delivered to Michael Fux in NYC

Mattress mogul Michael Fux is an old man, but his penchant for supercars with vivid, vibrant colors rivals that of an eight-year old. The man’s latest acquisition is a sumptuous Emerald Green McLaren Senna which was delivered to him with some pomp and circumstance in New York City.

With each of the Sennas being bespoke to the person who has ordered it, Michael Fux went for his own unique shade of green called Fux Green. Of course, it was McLaren’s MSO’s job to try and work that color into the carbon fiber body of the Senna, a process which took 1,000 hours to complete. For all the vivacity of the body color though, the wheels have a somewhat dull polished finish and the red and blue center lock nuts do little to lift them. Read More

2019 Audi TT Unveiled: Sharper, Sportier, More Dynamic

When it was first launched twenty years ago, the Audi TT was a soft and cuddly thing favored mainly by female drivers. But over the years it got more and more macho in both looks and character, until we get to this latest version, the 2019 Audi TT, which has gone full alpha. 

This new version is not a complete redesign over the last one you got, but more of a mid-life upgrade. But these little upgrades add up to make the TT a car really more appealing to men. It has features such as “driver-oriented interior, progressive rim design, a short, ball-shaped gear lever knob, characteristic tank flap and round, dual-branch tailpipes.” No woman cares about any of those things. And then there is the angry face and the those headlights which look like the eyes of a super villain. Read More

Lumma Range Rover Velar Wide Body Is Simply Awesome

You may have seen this thing in the renderings the tuner released a while back, but Lumma Range Rover Velar is now ready in the flesh in all its wide body glory. And it is, hands down, one of the best looking cars we’ve ever seen. And we don’t even like the red accents!

The Velar is a naturally beautiful car and it does not really need all the extra work. Upgrading the looks of this car would be like Megan Fox getting a boob job.

It takes a hot car and makes it completely irresistible. Read More

They can make it even more apocalypse-ready if you want. Whatever happens in California that would warrant the creation of such a car?

Of Course Jaguar I-Pace Has its Own App

In a world where even your toaster oven comes with a dedicated smartphone app, it is a given that a sophisticated, luxurious electric car should gets its own app. We are talking here about Jaguar I-Pace SUV-coupe-thingy, a truly interesting vehicle that is set to make Tesla irrelevant. 

Whether it will manage to do that remains to be seen. But on paper everything about the new Jaguar I-Pace seems to be great, even its app. Called Go I-PACE, the iPhone-only application gathers your travelling data to, ostensibly at least, put it to good use. It calculates the range expected from a full charge based on your vehicle use, the number of charges required in a typical week and how frequently you would need to top up mid-journey. It’s neat, but given the fact that there are apps now to control your vehicles functions such as air con and stuff, the Go I-PACE seems a bit, well, incomplete. Read More

Vauxhall Corsa GSi Pricing Revealed, Starts from £18,995

Opel/Vauxhall intrigued us when they announced they are reviving the Corsa GSi pocket rocket this year, but is now losing us as they reveal how much this thing is going to cost. The GSi is now available to order in the UK with a Vauxhall badge, priced from £18,995.

So they’ve priced this tiny little thing like a family saloon, and they still expect you to pay an extra £1,900 for the GSi Plus Pack. Then again, hotted-up Opels and Vauxhalls have never been cheap. And the Corsa GSi does have some juicy specs, one has to admit. But even so, it takes a real die-hard fan to play that kind of money for a Corsa, however hot it might be, or however cool its badge may look in automotive circles. Read More

This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed will see the debut of something special, the Nissan GT-R50 by Italian design giant, Italdesign. What they have done is take the Japanese supercar and dress it up in an Italian suit, with the result being something kind of weird.

But the thing is, they say that if the car receives good reception at the goodwood Festival of Speed, they will put in limited production with a run of 50 bespoke cars, each starting at €900,000. Almost a million Euros for a freaking Nissan?! Now that’s weird. Read More
