Geneva 2015 – The Mercedes-Benz G 500 4×4² – Not for sale?

Nope, we don’t really know what’s going on with the world anymore. Perhaps winning the Formula 1 World Championship last year has sent Mercedes-Benz a little mad. But, for whatever reason, they’ve built this fluorescent yellow/green monster.  Mercedes wants to stress that this G500 4×4² is only a show car. But one that’s almost production ready, and with a 4.0…

Friday Photo – McLaren P1 GTR and McLaren F1 GTR

Compared to Ferrari, Lamborghini, or even Porsche, it’s easy to accuse McLaren of lacking a little bit of soul and passion at times. Their technical, logical, approach to road – and race – cars often leaves us a little cold. But, with the latest addition to the P1 stable, McLaren is trying to inject some passion…

Geneva 2015 – Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3

Ignore the fact the basic car first went on sale almost a decade ago Instead, look at the mental riot of a beautiful road car married to genuine race car inspired enhancements, with performance to match. It might seem a cheap shot poking fun at the age of the Aston Martin Vantage, but there’s no escaping…

Geneva 2015 – New Audi R8

The 2015 Geneva Motor Show seems to be sending car manufacturers into overdrive when it comes to teasing photos and facts. We blame it on 50 Shades of Grey. Maybe. Anyway, here’s a tantalising glimpse of one of the big hitters coming to Geneva in a couple of weeks; the new Audi R8. As you can tell, Audi…

More Info – The 167 mph 2015 Honda Civic Type-R

Honda, please, enough! We’ve been teased with videos, titillated with photos, and fed various factual tidbits for what seems like forever. The end is in sight, with the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show, but Honda is still keen to tantalise us up until the big reveal. Given how we were tormented with details and sneak peeks of the new…

Friday Video – Porsche Cayman GT4 vs. Ford Focus RS

Ok, there’s a little bit of artistic licence used in the title for today’s feature. But we do have ‘in-action’ footage of two of the hottest new cars from this week: the Porsche Cayman GT4 and the Ford Focus RS.  Both of these caused the Twittersphere to descend into meltdown it seems, especially Porsche officially announcing the…

News and photos – Ferrari 488 GTB

You have to feel a little sorry for Ferrari. On the day it launches a 660+ bhp twin-turbocharged supercar, the motoring world goes crazy for a five-door hatchback with half the power instead. Oh, and a new yellow Porsche.  Anyway, now the Cayman GT4 and Focus RS frenzy has subsided, let us indulge Ferrari with…

News and photos – Porsche Cayman GT4

Porsche has just announced information about the new Cayman GT4. Intended to be the top dog in the Cayman family, the GT4 is the most hardcore version of the mid-engined two-seater coupé yet. Using a 3.8 litre flat-six derived from the bigger 911 Carrera S, the GT4 becomes the most powerful Cayman so far, with…

Geneva 2014 – 420 PS Audi TT quattro sport concept

We’ve already featured the all-new Audi TT launched at this week’s Geneva Motor Show, but Ingolstadt had an extra surprise lined up for show goers; the TT quattro sport concept.  Now, at EngageSportMode, we’ve become all too used to Audi making wonderful concept cars then promptly deciding not to produce them.

Geneva 2014 – SEAT Leon Cupra sets Nürburgring Record

With 280 PS the new SEAT Leon Cupra was always going to have decent performance. But was it enough to set a new lap record for production cars at the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit? Indeed! The previous record for production front-wheel drive cars was set in 2011 by the Renault Sport Megane RS Trophy with a…
