The great Alain de Decadent, in this Petrolicious video, talks about one of my favorite cars from Maranello, the 288 GTO. Not as polarizing as the F40 and definitively less famous than its ancestor the 250 GTO, in my opinion the 288 GTO is THE best-looking Ferrari ever made after the 1980s.
Last year, Jay Leno produced a video about Ruf’s CTR, also with an interview with Alois Ruf himself. Not only did he show the three generations of the CTR models, but also Alois Ruf and collector Bruce Meyer reveal very interesting tidbits about the cars. Being an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, it is a well-produced video and a very enjoyable watch.
On this 18th Lamborghini officially revealed the new Huracán STO. The STO (Super Trofeo Omologata) is basically a street legal version of the Huracán Super Trofeo, Lamborghini’s model for their exclusive championship series. Based on the regular Huracán Evo, the STO uses the same V10 engine and chassis. Obviously though, the STO is lighter and more powerful.
I think it looks A-W-E-S-O-M-E and I really wish one of the nice (and affordable) brands release it in 1:43 😍
I’m not exactly the biggest fan of the cars from Maranello, but I have to say this looks pretty good. It’s a Monza SP1, customized by Novitec. Ferrari only produced 500 of them, between the SP1 (monoposto) and SP2 (two places). I talked about them in 2018 when they were first released, but now Novitec made some improvements. And the SP1 looks mighty fine.
Well, at least in my humble opinion. The Alpine, in my eyes, had it all – the looks and the performance. And Petrolicious just uploaded a charming video of a 1972 A110 1600S.

Audi S1 Sport Quattro. Possibly one of the coolest models ever from Audi, and no doubt one of the coolest cars of the decade. With it’s 2.1 inline-5 engine delivering 300 hp, this specific model was one of the 200 homologation special models for Audi’s Group B rally monster. Therefore, it’s quite rare, produced only in 1983 and 1984. And Petrolicious has a very nice video on it.
Although not a “Le Mans car”, I have a very soft spot for this one. In fact, Spark just announced they will release a 1985 Monty Carlo Rally version of the car… 🤗
