700hp Aston Martin V12 Speedster Going into Limited Production
UK automaker Aston Martin has revealed that it’s going back to its roots with a limited-production 2-seater, inspired by its open cockpit racers of yore.

Mazda3 TCR Race Car Is Reason Enough to Bring Back MazdaSpeed

Mazda3 TCR Race Car Is Reason Enough to Bring Back MazdaSpeed
The 2019 Mazda3 hatchback is a really nifty looking car, and it offers some great driving dynamics for its class. Now, Mazda Motorsports has taken the shooting brake style of the 3 hatch and transformed it into a pro race car with gobs of style. The Mazda3 TCR not only has wide fender flares, lots of aero bits, and a giant wing out back – it packs a monster 350 horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine under its hood, and bangs through the gears with a paddle-shifted six-speed transmission. The race car was developed in collaboration with Long Road Racing – the same guys behind the awesome MX-5 Cup Car.

But this year things looked a little different for the MINI race team, both in a good and a bad way.

Acura NSX-based GTP Race Car for Sale for $350,000
What’s there to say that doesn’t include dribbling on oneself? Stumbling upon a piece of racing heritage like this is nothing short of breathtaking, and dammit if its asking price doesn’t make us wish we were one of North America’s elite multi-millionaires. Pipe dreams and financial flaws aside, there really is nothing quite like the thought of buying a bonafide vintage race car just because you can.

Watch an Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE Racer Get Built
I am a big fan of racecars where every last thing is built to perform. All the spats, ducts, and spoilers on a proper racecar are there for a reason and the reason isn’t to look cool in the local parking lot.
