Porsche 911 GT3 RS

PORSCHE 911 GT3 RS

YES PLEASE

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis


The ultimate modern super-car, one of the fastest accelerating road vehicles on the planet, the widow maker or as we know it: The Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The 911 has always been the pinnacle of the motoring world. It is a vehicle one could take to a Monaco casino in the evening, whilst in the morning take it round the green hell in Germany, and it would feel at home on both situations.

Contrary to the popular belief there actually is some sunshine in Ireland, and when the big yellow thing is in the sky the convertibles come out to play. Baron, the owner of this stunning BMW 645i, believes the car roof should stay down no matter what the conditions are, so he opted for this car as his daily vehicle.

Ford Mustang

FORD MUSTANG 1967 FASTBACK

THE AMERICAN DREAM

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis


 

Oh God, please bring us back to the 1960s when cars were more than just a means of transport. They weren't ran by computers, instead the engine bay was reserved for some real petrol-thirsty engines, they were driven by real men with hands covered in motor oil; they were not just a tool for commuting or a way to showcase your society status; they were a way to celebrate our human engineering skills, our talent to create something beautiful. And there was no greater place on Earth back then than the almighty Detroit in USA.

Cars at the Mill

CARS AT THE MILL

TEN OUT OF TEN

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis


For a car show to be so successful on the first year it is run is really unheard of, but somehow “Cars at the Mill” managed to pull that off. Not only did everybody get blown away by the picturesque setting at the Raceview Mill, Broughshane, but also by the huge variety of vehicles on display. On top of that the crew behind the Cars at Mill raised a mind blowing £7,000 for the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust beyond their and everyone else’s expectations. The charity car show took place on Sunday, April 30 at a local business park filled with coffee and souvenir shops, and even a live music in the small village of Broughshane, Northern Ireland.

GTINI DUBSHED 2017


Dubshed

A SHED FULL OF DUBS

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis


The car show season has officially launched here in Northern Ireland, and as usual it was “Dubshed” that opened the curtains for the rest of the 2017 season. For the eight year running Dubshed has been organised by the local dub enthusiast club “GTINI”, and for the second year in a row the event was hosted at the Eikon complex in the old Lisburn prison maze. Still very much aimed at the German automotive clientele, Dubshed has actually evolved over the years and has opened the doors to the rest of the global automotive manufacturers. And you know what, it looks the ‘Japanese’ are taking over.

Mazda 3 MPS

MAZDA 3 MPS

DARE TO BE DIFFERENT

 Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis



We are certainly spoilt for choices when it comes to choosing a sports hatchback; plenty of manufacturers worldwide had a go at building one since the 90ies, Japanese manufacturers in particular. Although, one of the vehicles from the Land of the rising sun that often got overlooked is the Mazda 3 MPS, or as the rest of the world knows it - the Mazdaspeed 3. This powerful hatchback really is a rare sight on British roads. So why did this car really fall under the radar - at the end of the day it went faster and was cheaper than all of its rivals at the time?

Is Mini really a girls car? Think again! Clark proved this car can win multiple shows and be as macho as you can imagine. This air'ed out Cooper S turned heads everywhere it went and was featured on magazines and various automotive blogs.

Honda Civic Type-R FK2

HONDA CIVIC TYPE-R FK2

TURBO EVERYTHING

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis



Honda Civic Type-R, love it or hate it, remains one of the most enjoyable sports hatchbacks out there since the release of  its first model in 1997. With the fifth generation of the Type-R now debuting in Geneva's Motor Show it is time to look back at the previous fourth generation Civic Type-R (CTR) model, code named the  FK2.

Ford Focus RS

FORD FOCUS RS MKII 

THE HULK

The Ford “RS” brand has always been a benchmark that many automotive manufacturers looked up to; it is highly praised, loved and enjoyed by many. Any model leaving the Ford factory marked with the respectable “Rallye Sport” badge was designed to put smiles on drivers faces. Ford Focus RS was one of them; it is one of the scariest yet one of the most enjoyable hatchbacks out there.

Peugeot 205 CTI

PEUGEOT 205 CTI

THE KING OF THE BACKROADS

“Don’t judge a book by its cover”…
If there’s one thing this old and wise saying describes accurately, it is the experience of driving one of the world’s finest front wheel drive cars- the one and only Peugeot 205. Don’t let the small, not so aerodynamic looking vehicle fool you; it is capable of outperforming more modern and muscular vehicles of the same class.

Autolifers Cars & Coffee

AL PRESENTS: CARS & COFFEE

Take it back to old school

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis


There used to be time when car meets were all about fun, making new friends and talking a load of rubbish all day - be it cars, football or other nonsense. Somewhere in the middle of all this we lost it all. We killed it with prizes, we killed it with "clubs" and "stands", we killed it with envy and jealousy. We killed it completely. It is time to go back to the basics. Today's "Cars and Coffee" was a proof that we've had enough, and we just want to go back to having fun.And
what an amazing turnout and excellent coffee morning it was! Well done to the Northern Irish car enthusiasts "Autolifers" for organizing the Cars and Coffee morning at the Bandridge outlet.
