Ferrari 330 P4 is a stunning red bolide

Filed under: , , , , ,

Ferrari 330 P4

There are many beautiful cars in the world, and then there is the Ferrari 330 P4 that outdoes practically all of them. Combining more curves than Christina Hendricks and the singing voice of Adele, it might just be one of the most aesthetically pleasing cars ever made. In its latest video, Petrolicious takes a look at the sole remaining original P4 in existence and talks to the lucky man who gets to drive it.

Ferrari Corsa instructor Nick Longhi has the enviable task about getting behind the wheel of the V12 racer in this video, and he says it doesn’t drive the way you might think. The P4 isn’t out to bite drivers who aren’t paying attention. Instead, he claims that the car just does everything right and helps the person at the controls be that much better.

Historically, the P4 was Ferrari’s attempt in the 1967 season to take on the dominating Ford GT40. The Prancing Horse’s major achievement that year was a 1-2-3 finish in the 24 Hours of Daytona, but it couldn’t quite beat the Ford at the famous race at Le Mans.

Arguably, the later Ferrari 312PB that Petrolicious highlighted a few weeks ago sounds better, but it’s got absolutely nothing on the voluptuously elegant design of the P4. Scroll down to learn about this thoroughbred of a Prancing Horse with some fantastic cinematography.

1979 Dodge Li'l Red Express in Generation Gap showdown with 1933 Ford Pickup

Filed under: , , , ,

Dodge Lil' Red Express

Auto enthusiasts love a good debate, whether it’s Mustang versus Camaro or Ferrari against Lamborghini. But how about a battle between two very different vintages of classic pickup trucks? In this case, the fight is between a 1979 Dodge Li’l Red Express and a 1933 Ford Model 46 truck with a flathead V8.

The shootout comes courtesy of the internet series Generation Gap, and its concept is super-simple. One guy prefers classics, and the other likes newer rides. They choose a category, pick two vehicles and put them head to head. In this case, neither is exactly modern, though. The Ford is more than old enough to receive Social Security checks, and the Dodge is hardly a young whippersnapper.

Other than both being pickups, these two models were made to serve very different functions. The Li’l Red Express was basically the progenitor of today’s muscle trucks, with a big V8 that made it one of the quickest new models in its day (admittedly, 1979 was a rough time for automotive performance). On the other hand, the ’33 Ford was just meant to work, with little pretense for anything else. One of the hosts describes it as “the simplest, most difficult” vehicle he’s driven because of the tricky double clutchwork necessary to shift gears. Scroll down to watch the video and try to decide which of these two American classics you would rather have in your garage.

Seinfeld laments AMC Gremlin with hilarious Jon Stewart

Filed under: , , ,

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Jon Stewart

A good comedian can rifle off a one-liner when put in the right situation. A great comedian, though, can fire off zingers in any situation. That much is obvious from the start of the latest episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

The quips begin essentially from the start, with Seinfeld introducing today’s featured car as a competitor to the Ford Pinto and Chevy Vega, a pair of cars he calls “horrible.” The competitor, though, “was even more horrible.” Yes, we’re talking about the AMC Gremlin.

Why the Gremlin, though? A car that is accepted as one of the single biggest four-wheeled abominations in the long, sad history of four-wheeled abominations? Well, it just happened to be the first car of guest Jon Stewart, of The Daily Show fame. With Stewart in tow, the one-liners really get going. Calling the Gremlin “contraception” for New Jersey’s young men in the 1970s and a car for the “broke ignorant”, the pair’s tour around Manhattan in the dreadful hatchback is cut short by something a bit more suited to the tastes of CICGC fans.

Scroll down for the full video, and enjoy the latest episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

How Hollywood furthered our automotive obsession [w/videos]

Filed under: , , ,

Generally, General Lee

The car enthusiast’s passion generally isn’t founded in any single experience. It is a result of many influences, coming from places like our parents, our surrounding area’s culture and, almost always, the media.

The automobile plays both major and minor roles in nearly every movie and TV show known to mankind. Today the editors at Autoblog and AOL Autos are paying homage to a few of these, acknowledging the ones that stand out in our minds as having played a profound part in forming our ardor for all things automotive.

Head on past the jump to see the cars from the big and small screen for which our staff still pines. And make sure to tell us about your favorite movie/TV cars, in Comments.

Father-son team grows close by building tuned Porsche

Filed under: , , , , ,

Porsche 911 father-son project

We’ve seen several heartwarming videos of kids bonding over cars with their parents, whether racing together or giving them as gifts. The story of Leh Keen and his father McGrath, though, is somewhat different. Not many dads are looking for a vehicle quite this mental.

As Leh tells it, his dad saw a video online of one of the wild Porsches from Japanese tuner Rauh-Welt Begriff and decided that he needed one of the creations in his own garage. Since Leh knows something about cars himself as a driver for Alex Job Racing in the United SportsCar Championship, McGrath put his son in charge of managing the build from the company.

When the car made it to the US for completion from Rauh’s famed builder Nakai, father and son bonded over the red, widebody 993-platform 911. The final product is certainly eye-catching. Scroll down to watch the video that features not only an engrossing father-son tale but also a seriously wicked, tuned Porsche from one of Japan’s finest.

Leno lives the lowrider life with a pair of Chevy Impalas

Filed under: , , , , , , ,

Jay Leno lowrider

Jay Leno gets low in his latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage by showing off two custom lowriders based on a pair of ’60s Chevrolet Impala classics and talks to some experts in the field. The whole culture surrounding these cars is a product of Southern California; so it makes sense for Golden State Jay to finally put a spotlight on them.

Leno focuses on different flavors of lowriders. First, there is a sinister-looking ’66 Impala coupe with simple black and chrome styling. It’s just a clean-looking vehicle without much bling to attract attention, but it still shows a great eye for detail. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there’s the ’63 Impala convertible shown above with a tuned 409-cubic-inch (6.7-liter) V8 that just screams “look at me!” from every angle. Owner Brandon Brusca says that the paintwork alone took nearly five years to complete. Possibly even more impressive is its hydraulic system made from airplane parts. The attention to detail is pretty incredible, with portions of the suspension featuring engraving that most people would never see.

Jay admits that lowriders aren’t really his style, but that doesn’t keep him from gushing about these classic Chevrolet cars. The amount of work and that goes into them is something that any auto enthusiast ought to appreciate. Scroll down to watch Leno take a cruise.

Trio of cheesy classic VW buses stolen, recovered

Cheese Vans Stolen

Three customized Volkswagen Buses (pictured above) made to look like blocks of Tillamook cheddar cheese are safe again after being stolen on July 12, and two men are in police custody for the alleged theft.

The cheesy cadre of VWs, their custom trailer and a Ford F-350 to haul them were on a promotional tour when they were stolen from a hotel parking lot in Manteca, California. Police began searching for them, and the group of bright orange Volkswagens wasn’t too hard to sniff out. The three vans with an estimated value of $100,000 each were recovered undamaged on July 14 from a storage center in California about 50 miles away from where they were taken, according to Oregon Live. It reports that one of the men arrested rented a space there.

Unfortunately, the trailer and pickup used to haul the classic VWs weren’t so lucky. Prior to finding the vans, police discovered the other vehicles burned out. It appears the alleged thieves tried to turn them into grilled cheese…

Take a trip down Jaguar's memory lane with Xcar

Filed under: , , , , , , ,

Jaguar sports car history

For decades, Jaguar has been a company of two minds. On one hand, there are its luxurious, British saloon cars. They might be quick, even sporty, but when it comes down to it, they usually put a focus on comfort and accommodations above all. On the other hand, Jag has its sports cars to really get its buyers’ blood pumping. Think about it: the XJ might look pretty sweet, but you know deep down that you would rather take the F-Type for a spirited drive, reveling in its snorty exhaust note. In its latest video, Xcar Films takes us on a very enjoyable history lesson covering some of the Brit brand’s most exciting models ever.

Xcar hits all of the highlights, starting with the often-overlooked C-Type from early ’50s with its somewhat bulbous shape. Things then progress to the drop-dead gorgeous D-Type. The one in this video is actually the first ever made and therefore worth a fortune. Because of that, the host isn’t really able to get too aggressive, but it’s fantastic to get an idea of what it’s like to experience being behind the wheel of this icon. Finally, it ends with a Series 1 E-Type. This was when the classic model was still something of a sports car; instead of the grand tourer that the E-Type became in its later days.

All three of these cars are legends in their own right, and maybe one day the F-Type could be too. Scroll down for a history lesson on some of Jaguar’s best sports cars.

Ferrari 330 P4 is a stunning red bolide

Ferrari 330 P4

There are many beautiful cars in the world, and then there is the Ferrari 330 P4 that outdoes practically all of them. Combining more curves than Christina Hendricks and the singing voice of Adele, it might just be one of the most aesthetically pleasing cars ever made. In its latest video, Petrolicious takes a look at the sole remaining original P4 in existence and talks to the lucky man who gets to drive it.

Ferrari Corsa instructor Nick Longhi has the enviable task about getting behind the wheel of the V12 racer in this video, and he says it doesn’t drive the way you might think. The P4 isn’t out to bite drivers who aren’t paying attention. Instead, he claims that the car just does everything right and helps the person at the controls be that much better.

Historically, the P4 was Ferrari’s attempt in the 1967 season to take on the dominating Ford GT40. The Prancing Horse’s major achievement that year was a 1-2-3 finish in the 24 Hours of Daytona, but it couldn’t quite beat the Ford at the famous race at Le Mans.

Arguably, the later Ferrari 312PB that Petrolicious highlighted a few weeks ago sounds better, but it’s got absolutely nothing on the voluptuously elegant design of the P4. Scroll down to learn about this thoroughbred of a Prancing Horse with some fantastic cinematography.
