The MG Metro 6R4: A Little-Known Group B Era Monster

This week’s Wednesday Want once again zeros in on one of our favorite automotive genres, Group B rally cars. In the past, we’ve showcased the Porsche 959, Peugeot 205 T16, and the Toyota 222D. Now joining that list is the MG Metro 6R4.

The Ferrari F50 Is a Prancing Horse Surrounded by Controversy and Unjust Ire

The latest version of Gran Turismo Sport is here and with it a new crop of vehicles. Headlining the new content is the Ferrari F50, which we first got sneak peek at during the Nation’s Cup Final. For this week’s Want, we will explore the F50 and help you get acquainted with the new Prancing Horse.

The Subaru Impreza 22B Is a Celebration of World Rally Dominance

We got a sneak peek at the Subaru 22B coming to GT Sport at the FIA Nations Cup Asia-Oceania Finals. Now with the release of v1.29, we are getting the opportunity to check it out in the game. But what about the real thing? For this week’s Want, we are diving into one of the rarest Subarus around.

The Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Is Your Rotary Powered Dream Machine

Four pots, inline sixes, V8s, and V12s; there’s no shortage when it comes to engine choices. However, there’s one that’s less conventional – the Wankel engine. That’s why for this week’s Want, we’re focusing in on this unique design and one of its ultimate applications.

The Wednesday Want Goes Two-Wheelin’ With the Lotus C-01 Sport Bike

While the Wednesday Want typically revolves around cars, for this week’s edition we are mixing it up a bit. Instead of the traditional four (or six) wheel creations, this time around we’re going for two. Nonetheless, this motorcycle still has a connection to a prominent British automaker.

Own a Pair of Vector Prototypes and Help the Company Fund Its New Car

The 1980s and 90s saw some rather strange cars hit the roads. The emphasis was on the future and it showed in nearly every radical new design. Supercars were no exception to this either. That’s why for this week’s Want we’re taking a look at two of these cars from Vector.

The Honda Beat Is the Sporty Kei Car That’s Big on Fun and Small in Size

In previous Wants, we took a look at cars that embraced the essence of Gran Turismo. These include vehicles like the Toyota Supra and the Nissan Skyline. For this week we are returning to the franchise, but instead of picking an outright performance car, we are looking at something a little different, the Honda Beat.

The Lotus Omega Combines Speed and Practicality for an Ultimate Super-Saloon

We rather like Lotus cars. The mantra of simplify and add lightness is a recipe for pretty much the perfect sports car. But if you have a family or even the need to carry anything, an Elise isn’t exactly ideal. For this week’s Want, we take a look at a car that blends the performance of Lotus with the practicality of a sedan: the Lotus Omega.

This Little Porsche 904 Carrera GTS Will Slay Giants Around the Track

This Donkervoort D8 GTO-RS Is a Dutch Dream Machine for the Track

From windmills to wooden shoes, the Dutch are known for many things. However, performance cars are pretty low on that list, especially for a country that loves bicycles. But tucked away in Lelystad is a company that makes some absolutely wild cars. That’s why for this week’s Want we’re taking a look at the wildest of them all, the Donkervoort D8 GTO-RS.
