Porsche 997 GT3 RS 4.0 2011

A couple of pictures I took a few years ago at the Porsche centre in Wilmslow (Manchester). This is the Porsche 997 GT3 RS 4.0. Only 600 of these were produced and this one is presented in Carrera White. It has a 4.0 flat-six which produces 494bhp. 0-62 is covered in 3.9 seconds and the top speed is 193mph or 311km/h.

BMW M5 Competition 2018

This BMW M5 really caught my eye the other day. This is the latest M5 Competition. The 4.4 V8 produces 616bhp. 0-62mph takes the saloon 3.3 seconds with a top speed of 190mph or 306km/h. The metallic Donington grey makes it look so understated as well. What a beauty!

Lotus Exige Sprint 2008

Pictures from France this time with this Lotus Exige from 2008. This is the Exige Sprint edition. What was specific about this edition? The livery mainly as the two-tone paint aims at recreating the colour scheme of the Elan Sprint built between 1971 and 1973. It also gets a heritage pack with a certificate signed by Lotus boss Mike Kimberley, as well as 'The Lotus Book' by William Taylor covering all the models produced at Hethel. There are also some extras like lightweight forged alloys as standard, air-con, a Sport Pack, a Touring Pack and the Performance Pack. That means the 1.8 4-cylinder engine reached 243bhp, with a 0-60mph in four seconds and a top speed of 146mph or 235km/h.
It seems to be quite a rare car as only 40 have apparently been built!

Bentley Continental GT 2019

As much as I love Aston Martins, I must admit the new Continental GT is an absolute masterpiece! I particularly like the front end of the car.

Aston Martin Rapide 2010

The Rapide in black today! The 4-seater Aston Martin is not a very popular car despite being such a beautiful car. Powered by the 470bhpm 5.9 V12, the car covers 0-62 in 5.0 seconds up to a top speed of 188mph (303km/h)

Audi RS6 Performance Avant 2016

A great wrap on this satin blue Audi RS6. This model is the Performance version of the RS6 in the Avant (estate) body. What's the Performance version, well how the name suggests, the standard 552 bhp RS6 got a bit of a power boost with the 4.0 V8 now reaching 597bhp. In terms of 'performance', we are looking at a 0-62 time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed limit increased to 189mph or 304km/h.
