BMW-Mini Driver Almost Delivers Someone's Darwin Award

When you're learning to drive, the idea is to learn not just how to operate a vehicle, but how to use said vehicle as a user of the public road network in a way that isn't hazardous or obstructive to other road users. You know, like a good human being, one responsible enough to propel themselves along at 20-80mph in… » 7/19/14 1:38pm Saturday 1:38pm

The Nürburgring-Conquering Citroën AX Is For Sale

Hey, remember this video from late January of a French gentleman who took his 21-year-old diesel Citroën shopping car around the fearsome Nordschleife faster than Jeremy Clarkson could in a twin-turbo Jaguar? If not, then watch it. I'll wait..................... Hey, remember that Citroën you just saw on YouTube nine… » 6/15/14 12:28pm 6/15/14 12:28pm

An Epic Journey to the Other Side

Well this shall begin the documentation on what will hopefully be a very eventful and successful trip to Europe for 11 days. I will start by saying I am not much of a writer, as a matter of a fact I'm an engineer which from what I've heard is actually considered the polar opposite of a writer. I have contacted… » 4/28/14 10:41pm 4/28/14 10:41pm

GTSIX: 500PP Showdown! The Beautiful Droptop TVR Tamora Against the…

Boy do we have a good one for today! Two different 500 performance point cars, each with their own ups and downs! One is a smooth, sleek British roadster while the other is a powerful, hard-charging American muscle car. The 2002 TVR Tamora and 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 may look very different on paper, yet despite… » 4/23/14 3:45pm 4/23/14 3:45pm

German Engineering! GTSIX Reviews the 2014 BMW M4 Coupe!

Why try to tune a car for the Nurburgring, when you can have a car that was born there. Yes, the new 2 door coupe form of the M3 the M4 has an I6 instead of a V8, but it also has an M TwinPower Turbo that gives it 425 horsepower. The brand new car can hit 60mph from 0 in 4.1 seconds, and set a 7.52 dead on the… » 4/23/14 9:14am 4/23/14 9:14am

GTSIX: NBR Reviews a Cruel Beast, an Incredible Daihatsu Midget D Type…

Dear readers, it is with heavy hearts that I must tell you about a tragedy that has befallen us at the GTSIX Team (me). While out testing this 124hp Kei truck, recommended by tumblr user koten4, our test driver lost control of the car after hitting a kerbstone and rolled end over end across the track. The little car… » 4/23/14 7:52am 4/23/14 7:52am

'Rush' meets 'Senna' at the Nürburgring and More

Where one grudge match ended, another one started. If the latter part of the 20th century's racing history had to be condensed into one race and one movie, this should be it. Equal cars, equal chances of winning, 17 (!) shared (future or past) F1 World Championship titles and much more. The 1984 Nürburgring… » 4/23/14 3:20am 4/23/14 3:20am

GTSIX: NBR Reviews the Very Weird and Very Awesome Marcos Mini Marcos…

This Mini Marcos GT, recommended by Sparf is a fantastic little car. Built as an FRP coupe on top of a Mini chassis, this little car ran in the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, and made it to the end. (In last.) The little thing may only have 78 horsepower, but it weighs just 559 kilograms! It's insane lightness makes it an… » 4/22/14 1:30pm 4/22/14 1:30pm

GTSIX: NBR Reviews: #2 The Autotragic Chrysler PT Cruiser!

Understeer. Underpowered. Wallowing. Ready-to-fall-over. Quite frankly, I'm amazed I managed to finish a lap of the Green Hell in this Chrysler PT Cruiser, recommended to me by Aya. The awful, slow, tragic car struggled to really go anywhere at all on the track, and despite my best efforts to wrestle my G25 wheel like… » 4/22/14 9:47am 4/22/14 9:47am
