The world of supercars and luxury grand tourers includes many incredibly expensive models which for the majority of us can only dream to own.
Even for richer motorists though there are cars out there in the market which are so remarkable and come in such short numbers, that their price can be pushed passed a million pound and beyond.
Of course there are plenty of examples of cars selling at auctions for multiple millions. Think for instance of the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, the sports car which was made specifically for the legendary British racing driver Sir Stirling Moss. It was sold...
MotorTorque's #carspotting feature makes a welcome return and today we again look at some of the great finds the public have made and kindly submitted our way. The stars this time include the Lotus Esprit, the Ferrari Testarossa and not one but two Citreon 2CVs.
Here we see a white Lotus Esprit captured and kindly sent to us online by @JothunheimBlood. The Esprit is a classic British sports car which was first built all the way back in 1976 and remained on the production line up until 2004.
The exact model seen the picture above appears to be the fourth out...
Welcome to an expanded entry in MotorTorque's #carspotting series where we look at some of the best submissions of the week. Today's stars include the Ferrari 458 Italia, the original Mini, the Bentley Brooklands, the Smart Fortwo...and a Fiat Uno.
Ferrari 458 Italia
This capture of the spectacular Ferrari 458 supercar was kindly sent to us on Twitter via @phikperson. The 458 Italia launched over two years ago now and it remains one of the top rated supercars which you can buy new on the market right now.
Ferrari has expanded the 458 range with the launch earlier this year of the Spider...
Yesterday and today MotorTorque has been down at a place called Bylchau found in the countryside of North Wales.
It's here where you'll find a driving route known as the Evo triangle, which has become popular with both motoring journalists and driving enthusiasts in general.
It's here we find gathered an impressive selection of sport cars, provided by Car Dealer magazine as part of their Road Test of the Year feature.
We headed down to do some filming and get behind the wheel of the cars ourselves. And what a selection of cars...
The exciting line-up we find in front of us includes the...
Today's edition of MotorTorque's #carspotting feature takes a look at a currently defunct but highly-rated Japanese supercar, the Honda NSX.
As you can tell from the photo above, the NSX is a long two-door coupe which was available in a striking orange paintjob along with many other colours. More than that though, it's a serious mid-engine rear wheel-drive supercar.
The Honda NSX was originally launched all the way back in 1990 and remained on the production line until 2005 when sales had fallen to just a few hundred worldwide.
From its original launch the NSX was marketed as the first "everyday supercar", a...
In this week's edition of MotorTorque's #carspotting feature, we take a closer look at an interesting supercar which appeared just outside the office. The car in question is the very fast yet, surprisingly affordable Nissan GT-R.
First launched back in 2009, the GT-R has been repeatedly updated every year since by Nissan, which has been squeezing out extra engine performance and continued to sharpen handling characteristics.
What really makes this car stand out is that performance-wise it can match or exceed the capabilities of a lot of today's supercars, yet the two-door coupe is also way cheaper in comparison to its closest...
Supercars. Think about them. Travelling at 200mph. Sprinting to 60mph in three seconds. Returning 4mpg on the combined cycle. Bursting into flames on the side of a road.
It's startling how often supercars seem to burst into flames with little in the way of encouragement. But they keep bursting into flames nonetheless.
Whether it's technical issues, a shunt or, well, whatever it is that keeps happening to supercars that sees them reduced to piles of ashes by the side of a road, rarely a week goes by without another £100K beauty going to meet its maker.
And the new Lamborghini Aventador...
Stand on the brake. Stand on the gas. Let go of the brake. Keep standing on the gas. Hang onto the steering wheel. Sounds simple enough, eh?
Accelerating to 60mph in three seconds requires something of a leap of faith. The sheer physical effect that going from stationary to very fast in a very small amount of time immediately delivers a burst of adrenaline that can feel crippling. It's a fight or flight reflex that sometimes invites a complete brain freeze, but instinct usually kicks in.
ESP is off, all the settings are firmed up - apart from the suspension. It's softened...
A lucky performance and luxury dealer has been charged with the task of clearing some space in the sultan of Brunei’s incredible supercar storage garage.The Sultan’s luxury car collection is the stuff of legend with rumours abounding about a Bentley-cum-Range Rover SUV for example, and now you can buy some of his iconic assortment of supercars.That’s of course if you have $2million dollars to spare on a 2004 Ferrari Enzo – the most expensive in the lot. There’s also one of just three examples of the BMW Nazca V12 concept in existence, which, unsurprisingly, has no list price and a...
Rowan Atkinson wrapped his £650,000 McLaren F1 around a tree in Cambridgeshire last night before it burst into flames.The former Blackadder and Mr Bean star walked away uninjured from the wreckage, which is more than can be said for the McLaren after it was declared a write-off, according to reports.Atkinson is probably as famous for his love of cars as his comedy nowadays and recently appeared on Top Gear where he registered the quickest lap time in the regular star in a reasonably priced car slot.That doesn’t mean he’s particularly good at it though as he has not only crashed...
