2011 was the year PerformanceDrive kicked things off. So we thought we’d put together top 10 of what we think were the stories that stood out; ones that were interesting, or controversial, and/or game-changing.
Why?: Because who wouldn’t want to drive an SUV with an R35 GTR drivetrain?
Why?: The Italians are known for their flamboyance, not their weird-looking SUV coupes.
Number 8: Lamborghini Murcielago LB-R Zero Fighter
Why?: This is the closest thing to flying a fighter jet on the tarmac.
Why?: Because the 458 is awesome. That is all.
Why?: One of the best shows in our own backyard.
Why?: This makes all the clutch-kickers frown.
Why?: The best part is not so much that the car is all fixed up, it’s how it happened.
Why?: Will it get Stuttgart’s finest shaking in its boots?
Why?: Fuel economy. Turbo power/torque. Tuning options – monster power upgrades.
Number 1: HDT VL VE Group A Plus Pack revealed
Why?: The best looking retro-rehash to date.
