Watch Edo Competition pit a Ferrari FXX against a Maserati MC12 Corsa on the 'Ring

High-zoot supercar tour organizer Gran Turismo Events held its annual Nürburgring track day last month, and in addition to the amateur punters the gates were opened to two tuned supercars from Edo Competition: A Maserati MC12 Corsa and a Ferrari Enzo ZXX.

Sabine Schmitz works Exagon Motors Furtive-eGT electric supercar on the 'Ring

"Just brilliant." That was the verdict rendered by Nürburgring maestro Sabine Schmitz on the Exagon Motors Furtive-eGT, the electric sports car introduced at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.

A Stig who's identity isn't a secret? Why, that just won't do, will it? As you might expect, then, Top Gear presenters Clarkson, Hammond and May are hot on the trail of a replacement Stig, and they've apparently found just the place: a farm.

Second only to Nürburg-queen Sabine Schmitz, Overstock.com's Sabine Ehrenfeld is that super sexy, multi-talented spokesperson that reintroduced us to the Big-O a Christmas or two ago.

Motorhome laps the 'Ring in 11 minutes while dinner's being cooked

This has to be the most unorthodox vehicle to ever attempt lapping the 'Ring at speed. Sure there are tour buses that will shuttle people around the track for a fee, and many people run their own vehicles on the North loop to see what it feels like to be Hans Stuck, if only for 15-20 minutes. But how many of them can take a motorhome round the course in 11 minutes? Heck, that's a pretty decent time for a sports sedan. And how many people lapping in the 11-minute range can do it while two cooks a

BMW's 'Green Hell' Facility reinvented

BMW has just reopened one of its most important technical workshops after finishing a three-year remodel. The reason this facility is so important is that for some 40 years, it has been BMW's base of operations at the Nürburgring.
