Renault Clio R.S. 220 Trophy: Hottest Hatch on the Nürburgring
Another of the car brands that folks in Europe can get hands on that we can’t here in the US is Renault. Most of their car’s are pretty boring, so we don’t lament that fact much.

Camo Clad 2017 Camaro ZL1 Spied at Nürburgring

Camo Clad 2017 Camaro ZL1 Spied at Nürburgring
The Camaro ZL1 is a cool car built for the track, but I have never been a big fan of that car. The problem with any forced induction car for road racing work is that when they get hot, you lose power.

40 Years of Awesome BMW M Series Hit the Track

40 Years of Awesome BMW M Series Hit the Track
The first time I ever drove a BMW M car at the track was a bit of a revelation for me. I never really liked BMW until that spin around the track in a late model M3 with a V8 and flappy paddle gearbox.

RingBanana: The Little Miata That Did

RingBanana: The Little Miata That Did
Earlier this month, I talked a bit about a beat up little yellow Mazda Miata that some guys had purchased for 1000 Euros (~$1125 USD), dubbed the RingBanana. Their objective was to make the car hit a 9:00 flat time on the Nürburgring, with as little money invested as possible.

Watch the Jaguar F-Type SVR Zoom Around the Ring

Watch the Jaguar F-Type SVR Zoom Around the Ring
Given the fact that my daily driver is a Jaguar F-Type, you might say I’ve got a bit of a bias towards this instant classic British sports car. And in the two years since Jaguar first released the F-Type, it’s continued to up its game, adding all-wheel drive, electric power steering, torque vectoring, and even offering a manual transmission model for purists.

A Lotus 3-Eleven Rips and Roars Around the ‘Ring

A Lotus 3-Eleven Rips and Roars Around the ‘Ring
With its supercharged V6 engine cranking 450 horsepower, and featherweight aluminum/composite construction, the open cockpit Lotus 3-Eleven clocks a 0-60 time below three seconds with a top speed of 180 miles per hour. That’s fast, as in the fastest street-legal Lotus ever built.

RingBanana: The Little Miata That Could

RingBanana: The Little Miata That Could
I used to have a 1994 MX-5 Miata, known as the NA version to Miata geeks. It was an ugly, caged, turbo race car, with silly pop-up headlights. The reactions were the same at the track, lifted eyebrows and chuckles.

Jaguar F-Type Prototypes Take on the Ring

Jaguar F-Type Prototypes Take on the Ring
I don’t know about you, but I can watch Shaguars (as Austin Powers says), or… Jaguars race around a track all day. Especially when it’s the F-Type going all-out on the Nürburgring. Thanks to YouTuber cvdzijden, we have this video of F-Type prototypes tackling the storied German track.

Strange Vehicles Lap the Nürburgring

Strange Vehicles Lap the Nürburgring
While I’d like to race around the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife in something fast, like maybe an AMG GT S or a Ferrari 488, it seems you can actually drive the track in just about any vehicle you want.

Mark Webber Flogs New 911 GT3 RS on The Ring
We all know that F1 drivers all have an expiration date. Driving cars with that kind of performance is a young man’s game and the drivers eventually lose enough steps that they can’t be competitive any longer.

2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO N-Attack Package

2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO N-Attack Package
Nissan’s awesome GT-R NISMO is an incredible street-ready performance-tuned racer which was able to set a Nürburgring lap time of just 7:08.69 – record time for a production car. But Nissan isn’t resting on its success, bringing the successor to the 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon: the 2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO fitted with the N-Attack Package.

A Pack of BMW M4s Lap the Nürburgring

A Pack of BMW M4s Lap the Nürburgring
The new BMW M4 looks to be an impressive performance coupe both on and off the track. We wouldn’t be surprised if a good number of buyers took advantage of BMW’s European delivery program and, while they were waiting for their new BMW to roll off the line, they pay a visit to Nürburg for a few laps of one of the most vaunted circuits in the world, the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

Renault Megane 275 Trophy: Ring King

Renault Megane 275 Trophy: Ring King
While there’s little chance we’ll see Renault cars sold in the U.S. any time soon, cars like the Renault Megane 275 Trophy make us wish they would reconsider. This incredible little hot hatch has demonstrated its aplomb, its stripped down track variant, the 275 Trophy-R turned in the top front-wheel drive Nurburgring time – just 7 minutes 54.36 seconds, and frankly the car just looks like a ton of fun.

Drifting the ‘Ring: The Green Hell Done Sideways
Driver Fredrik Sørlie took on the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife, with its unforgiving 13 miles of twists, turns and hills and had the nerve to drift what seems to be every one of the circuit’s 70+ corners while driving a Toyota Cressida.
