Jaguar XJS and Tom Walkinshaw take you thru racing puberty with one lap of Bathurst

Tom Walkinshaw is at the wheel of the JRA Jaguar from 1985 and absolutly wears out the track for this pole quaifying lap.  Getting the car a little loose on almost every corner and even taking it on two wheels for one of them.  I have seen alot of driving skill displayed in my day but this is one of my top 5 of all time.

Enjoy!

Nurburgring – Trust me, its a lap like no other.

A big thanks to Peter Chaney for posting this via Face Book.  As I commented there, I have studdied many a lap of The Ring and am a huge fan of watching a skilled wheel man drive the paint off a car.  This lap…sits in my top 3 Nurburgring laps of all time.  I hope you enjoy geeking out on it as much as I did.

2012 Nissan GT-R Preview

When the rumored R35 Skyline started its development, many enthusiasts couldnt believe that there was still room to improve the greatst Japanese Muscle car.  When the GT-R debuted though the performance ability was blistering and impressed everyone in the industry.  That was in 2007 when the Nissan GT-R was turning lap times of 7 minutes and 38 seconds around the Nurburgring.

With an additional 45 HP and shaving 12 seconds from its 2007 lap time, somehow, Nissan has managed to improve on what has already been called an unimaginable level of performance.  The last official lap time recorded was 7:26.70 but an even quicker lap of 7:24.22 this year.  2 seconds over a track as long as the ‘ring is mind boggling. 

Here it is, the all new and somehow improved 2012 Nissan GT-R:

Lexus: The Hard Way Behind The Scenes

Weve all seen the commercial with 5 suspended Lexus sedans that hang over an LFA. It makes me uncomfortable just remembering it.

Heres a peak behind the scenes for the making of that commercial.

New BMW E92 M3 Performance Exhaust

An M3 performance exhaust sounds like an oxymoron but BMW have done it yet again.

Made of Inconel Alloy, this new exhaust provides an amazing sound at nearly half the weight.  Because of its properties, Inconel construction allows the side walls of the M3 exhaust to be reduced from 1.5mm to .8mm, cutting nearly 20 lbs off the current exhaust.

M Performance parts are warranted for the New Vehicle Limited Warranty period when the installation occurs before the first delivery of a new vehicle. If the M Performance parts installation occurs after the first delivery, the accessory will be warranted for the balance of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty period or two years and unlimited mileage from the date of installation, whichever one is greater.

To be honest, the car has never sounded better.  But is it worth the $4,374?  See for yourself…
