The brighter, the better
By 1984 Group B was really into its stride, but Audi wasn't the dominant force it had been in rallying. The smaller, lighter, mid-engined Peugeot 205 T16 had arrived and though Audi was able to capture the 1984 title, the
By Dutch designer Andries Van Overbeeke
Remember Dutch designer Andries Van Overbeeke? Back in 2015, he penned a series of sketches that showed us what 2017's Red Bull Formula 1 car could have looked like. Needless to say, his wide-bodied, fat-tired vision was far more

The pandemic has put a stop to major racing events the world over, and the local racing scene is no exception. If not for this COVID-19 crisis, we would have been getting our dose of waku-doki action courtesy of the
For a good cause
Forget your Senna GTRs, Ferrari FXXKs, and Porsche 935s. The ultimate rich person's plaything isn't a ludicrously expensive, track-only hypercar, it's a proper Formula 1 car. And this, moneyed folk among Top Gear readers, is your chance to
It’s a replica of Porsche’s Apple-sponsored race car from the ’80s
Once upon a time, there was an 'Apple Car' that used to tear up tracks. In fact, the race car was even worthy enough to compete at Le Mans at some point in its life, albeit it didn't bring home any
Originally, it was introduced with an 840hp twin-turbo V6
The V8 isn't dead! At least, not in motorsports, and certainly not for Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG). Jim Glickenhaus's team has just announced a partnership with French race engine builder Pipo Moteurs, for his upcoming 007 Le Mans racer.And
That ‘1400’ in the name denotes the horsepower rating, by the way
Back in 1968, Ford built 50 special lightweight Mustangs specifically for drag racing. Some 40 years later, it revived the practice, and most years since has built small batches of these fat-tired, turnkey but non-road-legal Mustangs. They're called
Racing sims are on another level these days
Here's something that'll have gamers without racing wheels fuming in their non-gamer seats: The BMW M3 E30 DTM-one of the most popular, not to mention successful, touring cars ever to grace the track-has been given a second
And expensive
The shopping list to go drifting sounds simple: Buy a ratty old rear-wheel-drive car, then find somewhere safe to skid around, melt your tires, do some crashing. And yes, for some grassroots sideways enthusiasts, that's the deal. But when
The last prototype Veyron, the only racing EB110...and things got even more unusual from there
Where to start? Sitges-Terramar, now there's a track that needs its own story told.First time I've ever seen a car slide sideways down a slope. Then there's the people. Andy Wallace, he of nonchalantly-doing-300mph-in-
It’s going up for auction
As sunshine follows rain, and 15 minutes of Instagram follows five minutes of hard work, if you give humans a road car, someone will eventually strip it down in order to race it around a track. And what you see above is
From a golden era of racing
This is very special indeed. What you see above is one of the two 'SuperVettes' built by driver-turned-developer John Greenwood and designer Bob Riley for the IMSA GT Championship in the late '70s. And it's for sale.Looks wild,
It's no garage queen
Right, we're passing the hat around here-who wants to help us stump up the rest of the $695,000 (P35.8 million) asking price for this ridiculously cool Ferrari 308 GT2 race car?Perhaps some background first. Like other 308s
But we can all take part in making ‘key design decisions’ via Twitter
In the olden days, car design was generally reserved for those who wore roll-neck jumpers and carried a pencil behind one ear. Now, though, Ford is bringing it to the masses by allowing gamers to design a bespoke, virtual racing car.

The second-gen Formula E race car has looked cool ever since it was uncovered back in 2018, ahead of the motorsport's fifth season. But for the seventh season, which starts in November of this year (we're still midway through
Thought electric cars were cute and cuddly? Time to meet the brooding Veloster eTCR
Race cars usually have an aura about them. They sit all angry in their pit garage, intimidatingly slick tires stacked up nearby, looking ready to bite the uninitiated. But this is different. The aura surrounding the Hyundai Veloster eTCR is palpable, not
Love the liveries
Got $7.5 million (roughly P381 million) just knocking around? Well, you need to spend it on the greatest multipack of cars ever. The picture above shows the six-strong 'Campion Collection,' a group of Martini-striped Lancias up for sale now
Based on a decade-old chassis
Track packs are all the rage in the supercar market right now. But even when applied to a McLaren 720S-a car built by one of the most provident names in F1 history-you get a mere lick of carbon fiber and
