The VLN, short for Veranstaltergemeinschaft Langstreckenpokal Nurburgring, is a localized endurance race series held at the famous German circuit each year.

  • Risi Competizione Ferrari 458 Italia GT race car

Designed to compete in the American Le Mans Series, the new race car pictured above is just one of four cars set to compete in this year’s season. Power is restricted to just 465 horsepower with the use of air restrictors--more than 100 under the production Italia's--due to class rules, and is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed paddle-shift gearbox.

  • 2012 Ferrari FF airlifted to the top of Plan De Corones

    In the Alto-Adige region lies the Dolomite mountain range, and at 2,350 meters (about 7,700 feet) you'll find the top of the Plan De Corones. That's where the helicopter-lifted 2012 Ferrari FF is destined in the video below. We're just days away from the first press drives of the car, and the Plan De Corones is part of the action. The chopper that took the FF to the top of the mountain is a CH-47 Chinook operated by the 4th Regiment Altair from the Italian military and assisted by three Agusta 205s.

  • 2012 Jaguar XKR-S live photos

    Jaguar may be celebrating 50 years of its iconic E-Type at this week’s 2011 Geneva Motor Show but that hasn’t stopped the automaker from rolling out a very special version of its equally stunning XKR. Of course, we’re talking about the new 2012 Jaguar XKR-S, which has been billed as the "most potent series production" Jaguar ever. That’s a big call but understandable when you consider the car’s 542 horsepower supercharged V-8 engine, which is capable of propelling the big cat from 0-60 mph in just 4.2 seconds and see it reach a top speed of 186 mph. Enjoy the...
