The 2018 Ferrari GTC4Lusso Is an Exotic Shooting Brake for the Family

The 2018 Ferrari GTC4Lusso T is a shooting brake with room for 4 & a prancing horse badge. This seemingly unlikely Ferrari can trace its history to the Italian carmaker’s beginnings, however.

Ferrari’s grand touring aspirations go back to the birth of the company - the 166 was introduced in 1948 as the first true road car to leave the Maranello factory. It had a folding rear bench. A long line of GT cars followed.

The 2011 FF replaced the 612 Scaglietti with an all-new design but retained the rear seats. The GTC4Lusso followed in 2016.

This month’s featured ride from Oloi, Inc. & NewYorKars has 4-wheel steering & a turbocharged V-8. 602 hp & 562 lb-ft of torque are sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

newyorkars.com The 2018 Ferrari GTC4Lusso T is an exotic Italian shooting brake with room for four. A turbocharged V-8 and four-wheel steering are standard.

It’s Friday the 13th! It’s also been exactly 3 years since I picked up my 2018 Ford Motor Company Focus RS.

I spent months debating which car to get. My decision was guided by 2 must-haves: manual transmission & all-wheel-drive. This narrowed down my choices to the Mitsubishi Motors USA Lancer Evolution, Volkswagen Golf R, Subaru of America, Inc. WRX STI, & the Ford Performance Focus RS.

It wasn’t easy to find new examples of these cars to look at, let alone drive. I did manage to test drive a used Subie & RS.

The Evo X was out of production & it only had a 5-speed, which made it drop down on my list. It was sad because I found a Final Edition languishing at a dealer lot & they were willing to work with me on price to get rid of it.

When I drove an RS, I was surprised how smooth & well-equipped it was. My last car was a 2007 Subaru STI & that was a pretty barebones car.

The RS was the fastest & most powerful of the bunch. I loved the RECARO seats & new Quaife Engineering limited-slip differential. Best of all, this was the last model year for the RS & just 1,000 units were made for the U.S., making it a pretty rare ride. I found out about the Limited Edition RS by accident.

You know what you should do is check out the story here: https://newyorkars.com/garage/2018-ford-focus-rs-review-story/

This was my first car to own, having leased all my previous vehicles. Those included a 2000 Jeep Wrangler, 2000 Nissan Maxima, 2004 WRX, & 2007 STI. It had been 7 years since I returned the Subie at the end of its lease & I didn’t drive much afterwards, having moved to Manhattan.

This car is everything I want in a car. Fast, fun, loud, flashy, immature. It reminds me of myself I guess.

All the images in this post were taken on November 13, 2017. Happy anniversary to the Blue Bomber!

This LEGO Batman Batmobile from the 1989 Tim Burton - Official Page film with Michael Keaton, Kim Basinger, & Jack Nicholson was one of many sets I got just before the pandemic hit NYC hard.

There are many intricate details & small touches that connect this vehicle to the film. The obvious ones are the pop-up machine guns, sliding canopy, & beautifully shaped tailfins but you’ll find more if you look closely.

The steering works, though this is not Minifigure scale. I do love the minifigs that came with it though. Look at that Nicholson grin on the Joker!

It helped to have something to keep busy. I built two sets over a few months, taking my time to extend the builds. I have a Star Wars set to post next, among many others.

I only recently got back into Lego thanks to my youngest nephew. I get him sets for his birthday, Christmas, etc. & end up building half of them with him. I still have some of my childhood bricks but the highlight is a Black Seas Barracuda from 1987 complete with box! Those are worth a pretty penny now but I’d never part with it.

Unicode's emoji version 13.0 release comes along with a pickup truck 🛻. It makes sense, considering one of the bestselling vehicles of all time is the Ford Motor Company F-Series. Pickups from the likes of Toyota USA, GMC, Chevrolet, Ram Trucks, & Nissan also account for about 20 percent of vehicles currently on the road in the U.S. Do you think it resembles any truck from those manufacturers or perhaps others?

The hauler emoji joins passenger road vehicles such as the automobile 🚗, sport utility vehicle 🚙, motorcycle 🏍, & motor scooter 🛵. Commercial vehicles include the delivery truck 🚚, articulated lorry 🚛, & tractor 🚜.

Then there are the people haulers: bus 🚌, minibus 🚐, taxi 🚕, & auto rickshaw 🛺. Emergency vehicles include the ambulance 🚑, fire engine 🚒, & police car 🚓,

And who can forget about the racing car 🏎.

The depictions look different depending on your device & operating system, & some have undergone changes throughout their history.

Which is your favorite? As a hot hatch owner, I like the 🚗. Wouldn’t it be great if you could change the paint colors?! Get on it, Unicode!

Screenshot taken from the Emojipedia site. The above emoji labels come from the CLDR short names but you can type in other words to find them.

The 2022 Volkswagen Golf R Keeps Its 6-speed Manual & Adds Drift Mode

The 2022 Volkswagen Golf R is coming to the U.S. with a standard 6-speed manual transmission (hurray!), torque vectoring, & drift mode. A 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic is optional.

This is the most powerful Golf ever produced, with 315 hp & 310 lb-ft of torque being sent to all four wheels via VW’s 4Motion Haldex system. The Germans took their flagship R to the Nürburgring for some “final tuning.” Surprised?

The understated looks of the previous R variants carry through. The Mk8 Golf launched abroad late last year while the Mk7 has carried over in the U.S.

The Mk8 Golf R, along with the new GTI, will arrive stateside towards the end of next year. These are the only two variants we will be getting for the foreseeable future. The last VW Golf R’s MSRP was just over $41K including destination, so expect the new one to be a bit higher than that.

The R’s his story can be traced back to the 2002 VW R32, though you can dig deeper & argue that it all started with in 1986 with the 4-wheel drive Golf Syncro.

On a personal note, I seriously considered getting the Mk7 Golf R.

Aston Martin

Everyone at Aston Martin is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Sir Sean Connery.

Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

Happy Halloween! The best of holidays won’t be the same this year but we do what we can, eh?

These masks come from #callosumstudios, Jason Baker, & the master Tom Savini. They are handmade & contain a washable dual-layer cloth lining inside, so yeah - wear them in confidence when you run your errands! The folks at CVS loved mine.

I got both of mine signed by Savini. The quality of these masks is as good as it gets & they even have the screen-accurate number of breathing holes. I got two - my standard goalie mask has scratches, reminding me of when #jasonvorhees fought #freddiekrueger.

The blue one was inspired by the Friday the 13th game on the original Nintendo #nes. It just so happens to go well with my Ford Motor Company Focus RS!

I broke out my Eddie Van Halen shirt (RIP 🎸) & I got the UNIK International Inc skeleton jacket many years from #searchanddestroynyc down on St. Mark’s. That & my Alienware hat are my normal winter wear, but it feels a little less special this year. 🎃☠️⚰️👻🍂🏚

Bags 21-24 & that’s a wrap! This LEGO Batman Batmobile from the 1989 Tim Burton - Official Page film with #michaelkeaton & #jacknicholson is complete.

The wheels are mounted (love those center caps!) & the pop-up machine gun mechanism is functional. Twist the afterburner exhaust to activate the guns.

The #batmobile is ready to be mounted to the rotating display/plaque. The Joker is whole. Would be cool if he had his Smith & Wesson Inc. Model 15 revolver with the 21-inch barrel!

I did drag my feet with this build but I didn’t want to finish so fast. I have more sets to come but first I’ll post some glamour shots of the finished product! Next time.

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Has a 50-Year Legacy W/ Carroll Shelby

This 2016 Ford Motor Company Mustang Shelby GT350 carries on a legacy going back to 1965, when Carroll Shelby & #fomoco teamed up to produce the first Shelby Mustang GT350.

This Ford Mustang’s 5.2-liter V-8 produces 526 hp & 429 lb-ft of torque, with Ford declaring it as “the most powerfully naturally aspirated road-going engine in its history.”

A 6-speed manual sends power to the rear wheels. RECARO seats & Brembo brakes were standard. This Deep Impact Blue beast also includes the factory track pack.

Though #carrollshelby himself is no longer with us, Shelby American carries on his legacy in cars like these.

newyorkars.com “As American as apple pie.” What comes to mind when you hear this expression? A certain product, song, or film? This month, Oloi and NewYorKars feature a car that encompasses all those and more. The Ford Mustang has transcended its simple automotive roots and found a place in our culture. It has...

Die Hard is back? Damn, it’s just an ad. But it’s a good’un.

The “trailer” opens with Bruce Willis’ John McLane sitting inside a third-gen Chevrolet Nova SS. His battery is dead so he goes to pick up a new one.

De’voreaux White’s Argyle seems to be driving the same mid-‘80s Lincoln Town Car stretch he drove in the original film. Ok, probably not the actual car but a very similar one. I matched up the wheels, though it’s hard to tell if there’s a third brake light as was seen in the original film. This is a quick & easy way to date a passenger vehicle to 1986 or later. So it took Argyle at least 30 years to pay off his limo. Fantastic.

Clarence Gilyard Jr. also returns, rocking Theo’s white sweater! Though his fate was unknown in the original film, he likely survived and was arrested. Perhaps he got out on parole at some point but there’s little doubt as to what happens to him this time.

There’s a nice chase scene involving an AM General LLC Humvee.

Rumer Willis posted a preview of the ad ahead of the full release. It was created by The Marketing Arm.

Being that this is an ad for Advance Auto Parts & the DieHard battery brand it purchased from a bankrupt Sears, I wasn’t expecting much. I figured McLane would just bust a few skulls. I’m happy to see him blowing people up again.

#johnmclane and #brucewillis were both born in 1955, so McLane is a senior citizen now. Yikes.

Love me some #carspotting! I came across this champagne/pink Roller some time ago in front of Zabar's. A search shows it’s registered as a 1988 Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Silver Spur in black. The Silver Spur was an extended wheelbase version of the Silver Spirit & was produced from 1980-2000.

While Rolls Royce did offer coach-built limousine options by Mulliner Park Ward for the Silver Spur, this example is far more outlandish than anything from the factory. As is that paint!

The factory RR limousines typically added a panel between the front & rear doors, adding a few feet to the car. This is a much lengthier modification.

The paint looks solid & the painted bumpers are a nice touch. Everything else appears to be stock, including the wheels, grille, lights, & of course the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament. I didn’t get a chance to peek inside though.

One wonders if the shop responsible for this extra stretchy (sketchy, flexy) limo retained the original 6.75-liter V-8 motor, which was rated at about 250 hp. The Silver Spur sedans weighed about 5,000 lbs. & emphasized ride quality over speed. What would you guess adding a car length of bodywork, interior, & chassis did to the weight?

If anyone has more information on this unique ride, please let me know. I’d love to talk to the owner. It seems to have gotten a bit of attention over the years & the general consensus is that it’s rented out for bachelorette parties & the like. Seems legit.

The 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Is a Gentleman's Car

The 1986 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera highlights our love for these iconic sports coupes. This generation was produced for the 1984-89 model years.

Oloi, Inc. & NewYorKars bring you this gentleman’s cruiser of a 911.

An air-cooled 3.2-liter flat-six engine sends 207 horsepower & 192 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission. 0-60 mph comes in less than six seconds, onto a top speed of nearly 150 mph.

This low-mileage Glacier White example is a minty beauty. 15-inch white wheels from Fuchsfelgeusa.com were standard.
