As many of you know, the famous Gumball3000 rally was being held last week, with participants covering 3000 miles between Dublin ( IRL ) and Bucharest ( ROU ), this year the last checkpoing before finish happened in my hometown.
Managed to skip work for a couple of hours and took some photos, they are not the greatest, place was crowded, very crowded.

Here's our interpretation of the RS version of the recently unveiled GT4. In a few words, we tweaked the aerodaynamics a little, rear bumper features side vents, side skirts are slightly lower and more aerodynamic, engine scoop behind the door is now carbon fiber for weight reduction. Front fender got the same treatment as the rear one, slightly enlarged, while the front one is ventilated.

Porsche has finally revealed the most hardcore, road going, 911 variant, the GT3 RS. The pinacle of this model is it's weight, it sums up to 1420kg, due to it's aluminium body, combined with magnesium roof and carbon fiber inserts.
It also features all sorts of aerodynamic gimnicks, like proeminent vented front fenders, ducktail like spoiler, which pushes the car even more at high speeds, front lip and rear apron were modified.

Let's face it, we've been expecting it ever since they announced the ST model and Ford didn't let us down, here's what the "new kid on the block" can do.
Engine, yes, there's EcoBoost, the same 2.3L unit that powers the Mustang and it develops 315HP and it's AWD and it has a 6-speed manual gearbox, which was updated to match the new torque - an exact figure hasn't been released yet.
K-Tec Racing has released new tuning kit for latest Renault Sport Twingo model.
This UK tuner has fitted the with high performance exhaust system and manifold, ECU upgrade as well as upgraded Cat Cams. The new, revamped, Twingo should now have the output power of 131 HP and 160 Nm of torque which should make it able to do 0-100 km/h in less than 8 s.
The kit costs 2,625 GPB with included 12-month warranty.

The new Clio Cup is powered by the same 1.6-liter direct-injected turbo unit, tuned by Oreca Magny-Cours that produces 220 hp and a constant torque of 270 Nm. Gear changes are done by a Sadev six-speed sequential transmission that shifts gears in just 100 milliseconds.

There has been some rumors and spy shots of an even hotter version of the recent released Range Rover Sport, which will probably be powered by the supercharged 5.0 L V8 unit we find on the XKR-S, XFR-S and XJR.
The render features a different front bumper, with lower air inlets, new, redesigned side vents, which help the engine breathe easier.
We could probably see the car in showrooms, next year.

Here is our interpretation, what changed? Lower ride height, bigger wheels, sportier aero kit - more aggressive front bumper, with plenty space for the intercooler and rear diffuser with rectangular exhaust tips. Added a bigger rear trunk wing, also removed chrome trimmings from the doors and the rear hatch.
As for performance, after a long period, it seems the car might be powered by the 1.6 turbo charged unit, developing around 220HP.
The entire new design has been inspired by the spy shots floating around automotive blogs.
