Here are some photos taken by Dilan Bandaranayake and Video from Sean Morris from the Nissan GT-R Owners Track Day in Buttonwillow California. The only GT-R I recognize is the Axis Wheels Nissan GT-R which I saw at the 2008 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Reiter Engineering is known for their rediculously awesome Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT which I saw at the 2008 Essen Motor Show. They have now created a Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 Strada and squeezed out another 10hp out of the already monstrous and beautiful 5L V10 by engineering their new central mounted high-flow exhaust (as implemented on their Murcielago R-GT).

Branew Nissan 370Z Pictures

Japanese tuner Branew just released some teaser pictures of its upcoming Branew Nissan 370Z which will debut at the Tokyo Auto Salon (SEE YOU THERE!)

Photos reveal some sexy new aerodynamic body parts (front spoiler, side step, rear wing and diffuser), and the 370Z is also slammed with 22 inch chrome Branew alloy wheels. All body parts except the rear wing will be available in fiberglass or carbon fiber. I must say I am a fan of these body modifications!

2009 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Review

2009 aston martin v8 vantage

My friend Chris Burdick over at Automoblog.net seems to have had quite a bit of fun test driving the 2009 Aston Martin V8 Vantage! The 2009 Aston Martin V8 Vantage gets a 4.7L 420hp / 347 ft-lbs engine upgrade which only delivers 0-60 in 4.7, still a step up from its previous 4.3L 380hp! The new model has a Sports Pack option ($3,785) which includes new sexy and lightweight 5 spoke wheels and Bilstein dampers.

Koenigsegg CCXR Video and Pictures

Here is an awesome video of a Koenigsegg CCXR being delivered and then taken out for a quick test drive on a very fun looking windy road! Turn up the volume and enjoy! For some reason if I had to choose between this carbon fiber cladded Koenigsegg CCXR and a Bugatti Veyron, I would definitely choose the CCXR because of its dark and stealth like design.

Is it possible that Matte White is the new Matte Black? With the introduction of the Matte White Brabus Tesla Roadster at the 2008 Essen Motor Show, and now this matte white Ferrari 599 GTB, it is possible that 2009 is the year that Matte White takes the spotlight.

I was watching some recaps from the best of the WINTER X-GAMES, and i found myself in awe of Shaun Whites snowboarding skills…I know I’m not alone in this mind frame. That was neither here nor there when it came to a comment one of the sport announcers made about him owning a LAMBORGHINI !!!

Nikolay Fomenko is a very accomplished Russian renaissance man. He is a musician, comic actor and FIA N-GT race champion who later became a leading showman on Russian TV.

He recently launched his country’s first hybrid supercar company called Marussia. Don’t forget to checkout the Russian coach built E-Go Revolt which also broke news earlier this year.
