    The Bentley Flying Spur vs. Rolls Royce GhostThe Bentley Flying Spur vs. Rolls Royce Ghost go head to head in a luxury car battle…

    The Battle of Britain! Bentley versus Rolls-Royce! The two luxury car titans battle it out as the new 2014 Bentley Flying Spur takes on it rival (more or less) the 2014 Rolls Royce Ghost.

    MotorTrend have devised a few rather unorthodox challenges to test these two luxury car titans:

    2. Can they paint with acrylics on canvas as well?

    Jeremy Clarkson Drives The McLaren P1!

    Jeremy Clarkson Drives The McLaren P1!The McLaren P1 is considered a ‘game changing’ hyper car! What does the legend Clarkson think of the P1 though?

    When we heard of the buzz about the McLaren P1’s incredible engineering and performance, in the back of our minds we were thinking; what will Jeremy Clarkson think of it? Well, low and behold Topgear’s opinionated presenter has taken to the track in the phenomenal P1.

    Read a taster of Jeremy’s verdict from Topgear.com below:

     

    None

    The trouble was that as I belted round, I’d been trying to deliver my pieces to camera, and I hadn’t managed to complete a single one without interrupting myself with a sudden, wide-eyed “******* hell”.

    “This car,” I’d say, “has a 3.8-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 which produces… ******* hell.” Then later, through Eau Rouge: “The feel of the steering puts me in mind of the feel you get from a Ferrari 458. It feels light and yet… oh, ******* hell.”

    2015 BMW M3 And M4 Revealed In Leaked Images!

    2015 BMW M3 And M4 Revealed In Leaked Images

    2015 BMW M3 And M4 Revealed In Leaked ImagesImages of BMW’s brand new M cars, the M3 Saloon and M4 Coupe hit the web ahead of the official reveal.

    Yesterday BMW dropped a totally unrevealing teaser video of its new M models, the M3 saloon and M4 coupe. This annoyed us, because the new M3 and M4 have been coming for the past five months. There were ‘concept’ cars, technical details released and hundreds of spy images and videos. And while  BMW still haven’t revealed any official details, we can now at least stare at the pair without any swirly car camouflage hiding their lines. And as far as things to stare at go, the new M cars are not bad at all, are they?

    The M3 is the cooler car in our opinion, its behind is just – for want of a better word – bangin’. The rear wheel arches are so wide and awesome, the quad exhaust pipes are racy, the carbon roof is exquisite and the front end is chiselled and nice. And in this light blue hue, it looks pretty much perfect. We likey.

    The M4 coupe is no Ugly Betty, but compared to the M3 Saloon it looks a bit…predictable. There is of course a very good reason for that, because it looks exactly the same as the M4 Concept that BMW showed a few months ago. It’s even the same colour. OK, the exhausts are a slightly different shape to those of the concept and it hasn’t got a carbon splitter at the front, but if you placed the two cars next to each other you’d swear they were identical.

    As for what’s beneath the metal, both cars use a 3.0liter twin turbo straight six engine producing around 430hp, which is hooked up to a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox (or six-speed manual) sending drive to the rear wheels. Power is distributed across the rear axle via a clever active ‘M’ differential – this aids stability and driftability.

    Apparently the official details will come out on Thursday so stay tuned for more juicy M3 and M4 news.

    10 Awesome Christmas Gifts For Petrol Heads

    10 Awesome Christmas Gifts For Petrol Heads

    10 Awesome Christmas Gifts For Petrol HeadsGot a petrol head in your life that needs gifting? They’ll love any of these awesome car guy gifts, we guarantee* it.

    *Not really, but they’re very cool.

    Socks and jocks just will not do this Christmas, nor will hideous stripy t-shirts. So, you want to get the petrol head in your life a cool car-related Christmas gift. Here’s a tip, do not, under any circumstances, think about getting them a Ferrari branded cap or iPhone case, or watch, or cologne, because that’s going to make your petrol head look like a complete and utter cock, even if he/she has a Ferrari – which they probably don’t. Car branded anything is lame.

    These are the gifts they’ll really want.

    Pop Bang Colour Artwork

    Add an explosion of car-related color to your house or office. From Pagani Zondas and Lamborghinis to Aston Martin DBR1 racing cars and Jaguar E-Types, Pop Bang Colour has a creative artwork that every petrol head can appreciate.

    Popbangcolourshop.com

    Tim Layzell Artwork

    Tim Layzell’s motoring artworks are just ridiculously cool. If the petrol head you’re buying for is into classic motors then you absolutely need to get them one of these paintings.

    Timlayzell.com

    Gran Turismo 6

    This is the racing game of the moment. Only available on PlayStation 3, Gran Turismo 6 features more than 1200 cars, over 30 of the world’s best racetracks, and the sort of graphics that will knock your socks right off. And if the person hasn’t got a PlayStation 3, buy them one of those too.

    gran-turismo.com

    Hoonigan Cop Burnout Tee

    I’m not going to lie, I find most car-related t-shirts horribly nerdy. However, the Hoonigan range of apparel is actually really cool, this tee with the cop car doing a burnout is my favourite. So ironic and bad ass.

    Hoonigan.com

    evo Car Of The Year Print

    How cool would one of these prints look hanging in your office or bedroom?

    evo.co.uk

    Track Day Experience

    There’s nothing cooler than being able to really explore the limits of your own car in the safe, controlled environment of a race track. There are plenty of different options to choose from, you can drive Silverstone in the UK, Streets Of Willow in California, Philip Island in Australia, plus heaps of others. You could even drive someone else’s race car if you’re not comfortable tracking your own pride and joy.

    Porsche 917K Gulf Model

    The Porsche 917 is arguably the coolest racing car ever made. So parked next to the pencil holder on your car guy’s desk it’s going to look pretty awesome.

    upscalediecast.com

    Magazine Subscription

    It’s the gift that just keeps on giving! You’ll probably need to do a little bit of research before you select which magazine to subscribe your car guy to, because if the person you’re buying for is a picky petrol head they’ll hate certain car mags, but love others. So, drop hints like ‘oh, you’ve got this month’s Autocar? Good read?’ to figure out which is their favourite title.

    AutoGlym Surface Detailing Clay Bar Kit

    Most petrol heads like to keep their ride nice and clean. This clay bar detailing kit comes with everything you need to keep your metal in top shape.

    ebay.com

    Ferrari 458 Speciale

    We named the Ferrari 458 Speciale the hottest car of 2013, this is the car you need to buy the petrol head in your life. Naturally, being a Ferrari it isn’t cheap, exactly, but can you really put a price on happiness? Huh?

    Any authorized Ferrari dealership, probably.

Its chassis offers stability at all times as well as exceptional aerodynamics. It has been created by the combination of carbon fibres, titanium and Kevlar. The latter element offers nothing less but great rigidity and its lightness.”
