IED Torino students fail to impress with Cisitalia 202 E concept

Obscure as it may have been (and remains still) to most motorheads on the western shores of the Atlantic, the original Cisitalia 202 was (and endures as) an icon in automotive design. It was fluid, harmonious, and looked as though it were carved by wind from a single bar of soap. The modern interpretation you see here, however, is a far cry.

Gumpert gears up for the race with Apollo R and Enraged

It doesn't get much more hard-core than the Gumpert Apollo. The German supercar is about as close as it gets to a race car for the road.
