Cars

Good to see them there. This is Car #81 which did quite well for a while.

It’s an M8 GTE and it is a testbed for a new road-going G series.

As the shadows stretch over the Dunlop Curves, the N°81 BMW M8 GTE finds itself in the top three of the LM GTE-Pro class in the 2018 24 Heures du Mans with night still to come.

It is coming out in November as the M850i xDrive. 4.4, 4×4, 530 bhp.

Expect at least a buck and a quarter.

Cars for the rich are more profitable, you know.

At least I’ll get to see them.

I would have treasured being at the 24 Hours … even just once.

Such things cannot happen.

Congratulations, Toyota… just fabulous.

The inimitable Lancia Delta High Fidelity Integrale. Best rally car ever.

snip from Wikipedia (sorry)

A special Delta HF Integrale version was a four-wheel drive hot hatch with a turbocharged petrol engine. Modified versions of the HF dominated the World Rally Championship, scoring 46 WRC victories overall and winning the Constructors Championship a record six times in a row from 1987 to 1992, in addition to Drivers’ Championship titles for Juha Kankkunen (1987 and 1991) and Miki Biasion (1988 and 1989).

hf logoSix times in a row. You may not realize how hard that is to achieve, what with other marques spending millions to beat you… No one has come close this record to this day, twenty-odd years on. The Group B versions were a whole ’nuther thing and even more exciting.

Too delicious for most.

Oh, Carlo, how we love that voodoo that you do so well.

And look what you made Lancia do…

They’ve gone and made the all new 037 R8!

Thank you Team Abarth.

We can dream.

I’ll take one of each, please.

Whoa.

Big fun. Made possible by the grace of my three lovely buds who live close by the hauptquartier, a car club event that was once my norm and now my rarity since I can’t drive n’ all.

It was so good to be at an event with many of the old crew. Old friends, new friends, good food and cool cars is a sure-fire goodly good mix. Did I just say that? Oh God. Sumthin’ wrong with me. Mustabin the heat. From mowin.’ Yeah.

Mmmmm

1961 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8-Litre
Fixed Head Coupe

The E type is classic, iconic and it is as fast as it looks. It was quite remarkably so when it was introduced, in fact.

And the styling. It is just lovely… and that goes for, as you can see, any angle.

Whether coupé or roadster.

The man’s been a hero from when I was a lad… junior high / middle school when I was taken from exploring the deep wood and placed into a suburban village. It was there I discovered drag racing and then sports cars and this man loomed large!

So glad he’s now a Knight of the Realm.

Fitting and proper.

Today’s been that, yeah.

Some lovely quality time with the youngins was enjoyed by yours truly. That is always a good soothing balm for the soul.

I’m so lucky, too, cuz my youngins is good youngins and not everybody can say that these days. I love watchin’ ‘em grow and learn to set up for navigating the bizarre wild weirdness that will be coming down the pike for us all. It is good to share what I’ve learned over the many millennia, too and it feels good to pass it on.

And saw good friends upstairs last night and in email today. Bought nutrients more economically…

All in all nice.

Now to cook a pizza and hear Micah talk about Percy’s hunt for Z. Maybe I’ll post that. I hope he wouldn’t sue.

530hp Porsche 993 Bi-Turbo powered Volkswagen T1 “Race-Taxi” in Action!!

19Bozzy92
Published on Nov 2, 2016

I don’t know why but I’m ust in love with the crazy and epic builds ike the one you saw in this video: a Volkswagen T1 bus powered by a Porsche 993 Turbo engine.
I saw this car during a charity event for disabled people, called 6 Ruote di Speranza, where they have the chance to get on board on various cars and supercars and do some laps as passegers around Monza Circuit. This T1 was really perfect for the event because it shares 3 other seats for passengers in addition to the driver’s one.

The creator of this car is the Swiss Fred Bernhard and he needed around 5 years to complete the project starting from a T3 van. He firstly decided to change the T3 body with the one of a T1 split-screen widened 21cm. Than the engine: he took the 3.6-litre twin turbo engine of a Porsche 993 Turbo tuned up to produce around 530 hp and 757 Nm of torque. Everything else, from the chassis to the setup, has been made and modified to create a perfect track monster van.

Quite a shame I saw it during this event since among traffic on track and of course passengers I couldn’t appreciate the potential of this vehicle. Hope to see it again in the future!
