eGarage Videos

Two new videos from eGarage are out today. The first is the cleaning of their famous Koenigsegg CCX’s key at a jewelers. I didn’t realize that needed to be done but then again not many keys are made out of pure silver or even that large to where it becomes necessary. The process is pretty cool and made a huge difference in its look. The second video is a teaser for future eGarage videos that will be out presumably later this year. One thing I thought was quite interesting was that many of the clips were identical to those in Wagenwerks’ spring show real. Very interesting indeed. It would seem to me that the Wagenwerks team is behind the eGarage videos, which can only mean more excellent automotive footage. From the teaser it looks like we will be seeing a lot more high end stuff out of eGarage, from a Porsche Carrera GT on the beach, to duel Ferrari F40s, to a Shelby GT 500 with a hot chick. It seems like the eGarage is full of only the best.

 

Unbelievable Track Day

(Source: L4P)

Generally, a track day consists of anywhere from a dozen to two-dozen cars taking over a race track to let loose. There may be one hyper car like a Bugatti, a few supercars, and the rest are track ready run of the mill sports cars. The SIC club in China does things a little bit bigger. The video below shows off the start to one of their events, and the only word I can come up with to describe the line-up is ‘unbelievable’. Three (3) Bugatties, an Aston Martin one-77, a Koenigsegg CCX, and a Zonda R made up the first of what seems like 50 rows of spectacular cars. I can only imagine what it would have been like to be at this unbelievable track day.

“Cars That Make You Cool”

“Cars That Make You Cool” is the title of a new article up on Forbes.com. I thought they must be kidding, but no. This article is the most stereotypical rich businessman’s guide to cool, it just says buy an expensive car. Forbes brought in expert, Ray Wert editor-in-chief of Jalopnik, who gave the words of wisdom. “Basically any Italian car will make you cool—with the exception of a Ferrari or a Lamborghini, those brands are so overplayed.” What does he suggests instead? Pretty much every other Italian car shown at Geneva this year. If you have to be told “what’s cool” then you don’t deserve one of these cars. These are the types of cars you should aspire to own since you were a boy. And owning one should be a moment of great accomplishment and joy. “Cars that will make you cool” is a laughable article of the most stereotypical cool cars out there.

 

Rezmoto Geneva Roundup: Production Cars

With the Geneva Motor Show coming to a close we’re going to talk about the solid new cars that were revealed this year in Rezmoto’s Geneva Roundup. We’re going to do this in two parts counting the top 5 best production and concept cars that were unveiled at the show.

Top 5 Best Production Cars

1. Koenigsegg Agera R

This beauty is number one on our list for a few reasons. The engine is outrageous with 1,115 HP 885 lb-ft of torque. It looks like a hot wheels car we all played with as kids. And for a supercar it’s practical with a nice big aerodynamic roof rack. Really it has everything you would want in a supercar to hit the top spot on our list.

2.Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4

Lamborghini’s successor to the Gallardo is just as we all expected, a faster more finely tuned car. It has the classic edgy lines that give a Lamborghini its identity and the power to match hitting 60 in 2.9 seconds. What is there not to like?

3. Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate

We had to put up at least one wagon in the top 3 or we wouldn’t be a euro blog. As far as wagons go this is one of the hottest. Putting out 481 hp on the proven C63 AMG platform can only be a good thing. Throw in a sick set of wheels and you have our number three production car of Geneva.

4. Brabus 700 Biturbo SLS Amg

The Brabus 700 Biturbo is an amazing example of aftermarket tuning done right. The subtle body kit and custom wheels tell you this car is not the “run of the mill” SLS AMG, but it doesn’t hit you over the head with it. The engine is tuned beyond belief with a top speed of 213 mph. Brabus did well with this one.

5. Audi RS3 Sportback

Another new sport hatchback for 2012 and a new addition to Audi’s RS line that will be replacing the classic RS4, how could this go wrong? 0-62 in 4.6 seconds makes it a bit slower than the Merc but it does cost less. However, there is some bad news that dropped it to the number 5 spot. Audi has not clarified if this RS will come to the U.S.; However, for the European readers it will be on sale in the first half of 2011

 

Koenigsegg Agrea R


(Source: Autoblog)

Move over Aventador you’re not the the only supercar coming to Geneva, the Koenigsegg Agrea R is also here to play. With a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 putting out 1,115 horsepower and 885 lb-ft of torque this car means business. When it comes to style I have to say I like the racing look of the Agrea more than the Aventador. The rigidity of the  all carbon fiber body allows for the roof to be removed giving you the convertible option. Going on a log trip, say the GoldRush Rally? Koenigsegg has you covered with a custom carbon fiber roof box designed by Thule. With the info we have out now the Agrea is definitely my overall favorite going into Geneva this week. Be sure to check back for more details on the Koenigsegg Agrea R when it makes its debut.
