1964 Ferrari 275 GTB by melkorius
1964 Ferrari 275 GTB
The Ferrari 275 was a two-seat front-engined Gran Turismo automobile produced by Ferrari between 1964 and 1968. It used a 3.3 L (3286 cc) Colombo 60° V12 engine and produced 280-300 hp. The Pininfarina-designed body was a graceful evolution of the car's predecessor, the 250, and strongly contrasted with its replacement, the Daytona. The 275 introduced Ferrari to the "transaxle", where the transmission and rear axle are integrated.

1970 Plymouth Road Runner by melkorius
1970 Plymouth Road Runner
The Plymouth Road Runner was a performance car built by the Plymouth division of the Chrysler Corporation in the United States between 1968 and 1980. By 1968 the original muscle cars were moving away from their roots as relatively cheap, fast cars as they gained options. Although Plymouth already had a performance car in the GTX, it wanted to reincarnate the original muscle car concept in a car able to run 14-second quarter mile (402 m) times and sell for less than US$3000. Both goals were met, and the Road Runner would far outpace the upscale and lower volume GTX.

2017 Ford GT by melkorius
2017 Ford GT
The high-performance supercar segment may never be the same. The Ford GT introduced today at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit showcases technology and innovation with ultra-efficient aerodynamics, EcoBoost® performance and lightweight carbon-fiber construction.

Beginning production late next year, the GT hits the road in select global markets to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ford GT race cars, placing 1-2-3 at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.

It has a contemporary performance layout with rear-wheel drive and a mid-mounted engine. And it will be propelled by the most powerful EcoBoost production engine ever: a next-generation twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that will produce more than 600 horsepower. This new engine is based on the same race-proven engine architecture as that used in Ford IMSA Daytona Prototype endurance-racing efforts. The EcoBoost engine will be a paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle for near instantaneous gear changes and exceptional driver control.

All of a vehicle’s capabilities – acceleration, handling, braking, safety, efficiency – can improve through the use of advanced, lighter materials, and the GT makes generous use of these high-tech composites.

Aerodynamic efficiency is at the heart of the Ford GT design, with every slope and shape examined to minimize drag and optimize downforce. An active rear spoiler is keyed to both speed and driver input, reactively deploying and adjusting its height and/or pitch angle depending on conditions.

GT is the latest proof point of the commitment by Ford Performance to bring more global performance vehicles to customers worldwide. It joins the Focus RS, F-150 Raptor, Shelby GT350® and Shelby® GT350R as the latest addition to the Ford Performance lineup.

2008 Lamborghini Estoque Concept by melkorius
2008 Lamborghini Estoque Concept

The Lamborghini Estoque (Spanish pronunciation: [esˈtoke]) is a concept car built by Lamborghini. Unlike current production Lamborghini cars, which are mid-engine two-seat sports cars, the Estoque is a four-door sedan.

The Estoque was introduced at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. The Estoque is the first front-engine vehicle by Lamborghini since the LM002 utility vehicle. It is described as a "concept for a $230,000 four-door sedan". It currently houses a 5.2 litre V10 engine, although there has been speculation that this could be replaced by a V12, V8, or possibly even a hybrid or turbo-diesel engine, as suggested by Lamborghini's Brand Director, Manfred Fitzgerald.

As with other Lamborghinis, the Estoque derives its name from the sport and tradition of bullfighting: An estoque is a type of sword traditionally used by matadors.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette C7.R by melkorius
2015 Chevrolet Corvette C7.R
In 2013, Chevrolet was the most successful name in professional motorsports in the United States, capturing 12 manufacturer, driver and team championships in NASCAR, IndyCar, ALMS, GRAND-AM and the Pirelli World Challenge series.

Chevrolet will kick off the 2014 season with the debut of the all-new Corvette C7.R at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The new Corvette race car, wearing an updated "Jake" mascot, will make its competition debut at the Rolex 24 At Daytona, Jan. 25-26.

"We had an amazing year in 2013, winning more championships in professional motorsport than any other manufacturer," said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet Vice President, Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. "Our success was the direct result of considerable preparation, strategy, teamwork and great drive from our teams, drivers, and partners in open wheel, stock car, and sports car racing. We are looking forward to continuing that momentum for 2014."

For an unprecedented 11th consecutive year, Chevrolet won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Manufacturers Championship – for a record 37th time overall. Jimmie Johnson's ninth-place finish in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway earned him the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Drivers Championship. It was the sixth time in a record-setting eight-year span that Johnson, the driver of the No. 48 Lowe's Chevrolet SS fielded by Hendrick Motorsports, claimed the coveted crown and the 29th Drivers Championship for Chevrolet. In addition, Austin Dillon secured the Driverss Championship in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

After returning to the series in 2012, Chevrolet won the IndyCar Manufacturers Championship for the second year in a row. Chevrolet led the series with 10 victories out of 19 races, including the prestigious Indianapolis 500.

For the second consecutive year, Chevrolet secured the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series Daytona Prototype (DP) Engine Manufacturers Championship, and drivers Max Angelelli and Jordan Taylor shared the Drivers Championship.

Competing with the Camaro, Chevrolet secured the GTS Manufacturers Championship in World Challenge racing. Lawson Aschenbach won the GTS Drivers Championship, while Blackdog Racing secured the GTS Team Championship.

In the American Le Mans Series, Chevrolet claimed its 10th Manufacturers Championship with a third-place class finish by the No. 3 Chevrolet Corvette C6.R, driven by Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen, in the Oak Tree Grand Prix at Virginia International Raceway. Chevrolet also clinched the ALMS GT Team championship for Corvette Racing – its 10th in the ALMS and most in the series' history. Chevrolet won the ALMS' Green Challenge GT Championship, which goes to the manufacturer that records the fastest races while being the most efficient in terms of petroleum use and emissions. The No. 3 Chevrolet Corvette C6.R won the Michelin Green X Challenge – an award that goes to the leading GT and prototype teams using the same criteria.

Chevrolet Racing will kick off the 2014 season in January with the all-new Corvette C7.R.

The C7.R will make its public debut alongside the new 2015 Corvette Z06 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The two cars were co-developed, representing the closest connection between the racing and road-going Corvettes in modern times.

The C7.R will make its competition debut at the Rolex 24 At Daytona, in Daytona Beach, Fla., on January 25, 2014. When the C7.R takes to the track, it will sport an all-new Jake logo, which has become the unofficial mascot of Corvette Racing.

Jake first appeared in the early 2000s, when the Corvette Racing team was gaining momentum, winning multiple ALMS championships, the 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring. The team began uniting behind a rally cry of "take no prisoners" and a flaming skull logo that represented their unrelenting drive for victories.

It wasn't until after the C5.R completed the final 24 Hours of Le Mans that the unofficial logo was born. Originally just a sketch on a napkin, the logo was drawn as a skull with crossed flags for the eyes and was named after Jake, the infamous character from The Blues Brothers.

The new Jake, with the seventh-generation Crossed Flag logo for eyes, is more modern and more aggressive – just like the C7.R.

"The best thing about Jake is that the logo transcends age and gender, uniting the Corvette Racing team and enthusiasts alike," said Tom Peters, Director of Design, Performance Vehicles. "The new Jake logo reinforces the brand's success on the track and signals the transition from the C6.R to the C7.R."
