If there’s one message to take away from this video it’s that Alfa Romeo’s 4C is made in Modena by Maserati. In fact it…
Last year we were approached and asked to contribute to a unique project to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th Anniversary. It’s an opportunity we were only…
His was a remarkable career the first time around. A record seven world championship titles, 91 Grand Prix victories and 68 pole positions. Michael Schumacher may have had a little assistance along the way from team mates, team principals and a few unwilling adversaries, but remove the controversies and there still stands a man who justifiably has become a legend of the sport.
Yesterday, the members of English rock band, Muse, popped in for a visit to Lamborghini’s factory in Sant’Agata for some automotive inspiration.
Muse are well known for the falsetto voice of lead singer Matthew Bellamy, but also for the speed at which he changes pitch during his lyrics – perhaps that’s why the group were visiting the famous Via Modena 12 address, drawing inspiration from the Gallardo’s scalpel sharp V10 engine.
The launch of Aston Martin’s range-topping DBS replacement, originally codenamed AM 310, seems to have become another in a long line of PR shambles, with the inevitable ‘leaked’ images making their way onto the interweb days before the official release.
After its appearance at last weekend’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, the AM310 concept car will be appearing at some of this year’s big summer events, including the Goodwood Festival Speed later this month.
You may have spotted Lexus’ LF-LC in the photo gallery we published from The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este at the weekend. Lexus went one step further than its static Concorso display, by actually driving the LF-LC on the roads around Lake Como in Italy.
Even if you’re not a classic car buff, there was still plenty to feast your eyes on at The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2012 this past weekend.
Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este is becoming a bit like Goodwood’s Festival of Speed, where it may have started out as a celebration of historic cars, it has now become a popular launch spot for several car makers to show their most beautiful pre-production ‘new’ models.
On Tuesday 8 May, Jacques Villeneuve will take to the Fiorano track at the wheel of the 312 T4 driven by his father Gilles in 1979, the season that he and Jody Scheckter brought the Scuderia the Constructors’ title, with the South African also taking the Drivers’ World Championship.
Although some of Group Lotus’ recent plans have been scoffed at by many (myself included), the one aspect I ‘really’ approve of is Lotus’ move into rallying. After all, how can we not embrace the chance to see something modern and exotic join the slip-fest, even if it is only for a few FIA European Rally Championship events.
There’s a great new addition to the list of ’20-places-to-visit-before-you-die’, following the opening earlier this week of Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari in Modena, Italy.
Designed by the late Jan Kaplický and architected by Andrea Morgante’s Shiro Studio, the new EUR14.2m museum is built on the site of Enzo Ferrari’s birthplace, making use of the former nineteenth century house and workshop of Ferrari’s father, with the addition of a new glass-fronted structure that curves around it.
