BMW i8

THE FUTURE IS HERE
Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis

The automotive engineering has come a long way since the days of wooden carriages, steam engines and springleaf suspension. What seemed like science fiction just 20 years ago is a reality at present. We see manufacturers offering hybrid powered, self-driving, self-steering vehicles; the future of motoring is here and it is majestic.

Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IX

The Perfect EVO

It’s no secret that I love the Lancer Evolution. To be honest I don’t think you could call yourself a true petrolhead and in the same breath say that you “don’t like the Evo” as it’s such a great car even in standard form. “Standard form” is something that can only really be said once when talking about Eddie McConville’s gorgeous Lancer Evolution – the “tech Spec” for this car is quite something. Normally I would run down through the parts this car has through the article but there is WAY too much to actually mention. Make sure you check out the full spec at the end of the article.

Land Rover Defender

Twisted and Bonkers

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis

When designing the Defender Land Rover most likely didn’t expect the car to become an icon in the automotive industry, rather a simple vehicle designed to cross rivers, tackle mountains and transport sheep; in short - just be one touch son-of-a b*tch car; yet here we are at the end of the era of this glorious beast and it is more popular than ever. It is a cult car with a huge following across the globe, and it has sadly come to an end.

Japfest 2015

JAPFEST

Love and be Loved - JDM

Text and photos: Reinis Babrovskis
The car scene is forever changing and evolving; the times of neons and bodykits are long gone, and it seems the recent trend of modifying German cars has taken over the World, and whilst it may be nice to see all the “stanced dubs”, it was a fresh breath of air to finish the show season with a Japanese manufacturer show here in Ireland. The queues at the entrance of the Mondello International Race circuit  as well as the nearby car washes indicated it was going to be a big one; and it was…

More than 50 topless Hondas from across the UK and Europe arrived in Northern Ireland over the weekend of September 18-20 to tackle some of the most scenic roads this island had to offer. This was the 11th Megameet the boys and girls from the UK Honda S2000 forum had organised, and the first one I've attended.

A Lap in the "Green Hell" - Nürburgring

The Green Hell

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis & Ginta Babrovska
Ask a car enthusiast: what is on the top of their bucket list, and I am certain the majority would provide the same answer - a lap on the infamous Nürburgring. For years I could've only dreamt about racing on this circuit, before finally I was given the chance to fulfill my life-long dream, as my dear wife got me a present of a life-time.

If your a car guy, then your pretty certain to have a 'list'... A list of cars you would like to own at some point in your life at some stage. We have all said at some point, "oh, I'd like one of those some day" or "that's my next car right there!" as we spot something we really like, be it at the launch of new model, or the first time something has caught your eye, that for some reason you had overlooked until that point.

The One That Got Away

We all have that first true love, a car I mean of course; for Andy it was a Honda.
It is hard to explain why a certain car or manufacturer can have such an impact on us, but when that “vtec goes braap braap braap”, it is either a love or a hate with these cars.

Porker for the worker

That’s right; if you think Porsches are expensive and exclusive to the rich, think again. This stunning Porsche 911 Carrera Generation 2 costs half of what a modern GTD Golf would be; however, what you get is 10 times the fun.

Fresh Chevy from Bel Air

I love the American classics, even if it is hard to explain why. One doesn’t buy a Mustang or Charger for their handling capabilities, or for the speed – we all agree on that. If a car enthusiast looked for a great driving experience they might consider a Lotus Elise; if it’d be comfort they desired, they’d go for a Mercedes Benz, but American cars, what good are they?!
