Car Spotting In Williamsburg – Sights & Sounds

April 30th, 2012 by Stu

One stroll through Williamsburg on a beautiful afternoon and it’s clear, hipsters like cars almost as much as they do handlebar mustaches and fixed gear bikes.

Panoz Esperante – University & Waverley, Palo Alto

April 26th, 2012 by Stu

Remember the Panoz Esperante? You know… the Ford powered, small batch exotic from the mind of racing mogul Don Panoz. The Atlanta-based company has slowly been making modifications and upgrades to the swoopy sports car since it debuted way back in 2000. Despite the lame interior and somewhat dated aesthetic, the nearly 13 year old design (also available as a roadster and high performance GTLM edition) still manages to turn heads and perform admirably.  For the money, about $100k, the Esperante provides a unique alternative for enthusiasts not interested in higher volume models like 6-Series, SL and XK.

Thanks for the photos Ilya! They reek of Silicon Valley buyout money…

Volvo P1800 – Laurel Canyon, LA

April 20th, 2012 by Aaron

The 1960s ads for Volvo’s handsome P1800 likened its designer looks, sporting character and inspired performance to significantly more expensive GTs of the day. Ferraris, Jaguar E-Types and Aston Martins even. This well kept example spotted in Laurel Canyon, with its stylish silver on red color scheme, does a pretty good job of supporting the vintage advertising copy.

California dreaming.

Mystery Supercar: 49th Street & Sixth Avenue

April 16th, 2012 by Stu

Supercars are a rare breed. Rarer still are custom-bodied supercars based off of already existing supercars. Take this racy coupe spotted on 49th street for example. While difficult to recognize based on the styling alone, unless your an automotive super freak, the drivetrain, chassis and other major structural components are shared with one of Detroit’s greats. So go ahead, name that obscure supercar…

Thanks for the spot Mike.

NY Auto Show 2012: Sights & Sounds From The Floor

April 12th, 2012 by Stu

Pictured: The star of the show, Dodge’s beautifully resurrected 2013 Viper super car

This year’s New York Auto Show was a good one. There were several notable production and concept car debuts to speak of, among them an all new Dodge Viper that SRT President and CEO Ralph Giles managed to resurrect after the iconic American super car went silent in 2010. The 2013 vision you see above has obvious Italian influence fused into its hot rod roots. Think of it as a 640HP bruiser cloaked in fine Italian menswear. You can thank parent company Fiat for that.

More sights and sounds after the jump…

El Camino in Matte – Prince Street, NYC

April 9th, 2012 by Aaron

From six figure european sports cars to El Caminos, it’s utterly fascinating how matte finishes have managed to permeate nearly every end of the market.

What’s next? Matte minivans perhaps…

Ferrari FF – Madison Avenue, NYC

April 4th, 2012 by Stu

The life of a traffic cop isn’t glamorous. In fact, these civil servants must endure aggression and generally hostile behavior from irritated motorists all day long. There’s even a reality show about it. That’s precisely why this colorfully garbed gentleman didn’t skip a beat when it came to write up the owner of this new Ferrari FF parked on Madison. Hell, it’s  probably the most fun he’s had in weeks.

Maybe this well-to-do owner will wise up and feed the meter next time.
