6 Hours Of Racing Pleasure At Laguna Seca With The American Le Mans Series

Starting on a rather fresh and very foggy day, the little Mazda MX5 are already screaming around the unique bends, twists and famed cork screw of the Laguna Seca Raceway.

The Forza Motorsport 4 April Alpinestars Car Pack arrives

This morning, the April 2012 car pack for Forza Motorsport 4 hit the Xbox Live marketplace – bringing 10 new cars to the incredible driving simulator that offer a great spread of European luxury performance road and street cars both new and old, old school and new school Japanese performance coupes, a 50s era American convertible and even a high performance Swedish station wagon.

To the lover of the exotic sports luxury car, it is a valid concern.

Aston Martin Rapide production will move from Austria to the U.K. in 2012

Production of the Aston Martin Rapide will move to the U.K. in the second half of 2012 after having been built in Austria since reaching full production in 2010. Aston Martin's four door sports car has been built by Magna Steyr because it lacked sufficient production capability of its own.

That’s thanks to a raked, understated B-pillar that blends into the interior from many angles. Then there’s the clean lines, side vents, wheels that appear to be spoked, the sexy, slanted eyes with LED lashes and the toothy, vaguely menacing smile.

Inside the 2011 Aston Martin Rapide it’s just as beautiful as it is comfortable – blue haze and cream truffle leather with contrasting stitching. Wood accents and seats that cradle you snugly as you anticipate launching this V12 rocketship.
