…Spyker wants to give you race ready power?

Spyker C8 Laviolette LM85

Spyker’s C8 Laviolette LM85 is based on their GT2R race car that’s based on their C8 Laviolette, and despite a strange heritage, this looks like one rad ride.

Featuring a 4.2-liter Audi V8 that produces 400 horsepower, a 6-speed manual feeds that power to the black powder coated alloy wheels, which are then stopped (when needed) by 6-piston AP Racing brakes.

Spyker C8 Laviolette LM85 Interior

The paint scheme is derived from their GT2R, a carbon fiber spoiler rounds out the rear, and the interior features plenty of black leather and alcantara to justify the price tag.

No word on what that price tag might be, but it’s pretty safe to assume that this Dutch beauty won’t be cheap.

Who said money couldn’t buy happiness?

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Nissan/Ferrari 250 GTOZ?

Ferrari 250 GTO

This fake might not fool a Ferrari fan, but it sure does look pretty good to me.

Starting out life as a 1977 Nissan 280Z, this “street rod” version of a 250 GTO has had every body panel changed and modified, a BMW V12 engine and Getrag 6 speed transmission installed, and right hand drive put in just “to make it different”.

The end result is a beautiful (and very accurate) creation that looks good and drives even better.

BMW V12 in a Ferrari bodied Nissan Z car? Perfection.

…T-Rex is an awsome street legal race trike?


The T-Rex, a “street legal, track worthy” three-wheeled beast of a vehicle with a 1164cc Inline 4 cylinder DOHC engine, ram-air, a sequential 6-speed close ration gear box, and does 0-60 in 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 140 MPH. I want one.
