Er gehört zu den wenigen Supersportwagen und nach seinem Debüt am Internationalen Genfer Automobilsalon 2006 war klar: Im apollo vereinen sich Dynamik und Design mit purem Fahrgenuss und einzigartiger Performance.

Edo was never very happy with the Maserati MC 12, even comparing the sound of the car to a Nissan Primera, and has undoubtedly outdone himself this time around.
So, if you have a MC12 sitting around, head on down to Ahlen, Germany. With purchasing this program you will also receive 1 day of testing with

As opposed to many others, at OETTINGER's in Friedrichsdorf they have not succumbed to the temptation of over-loading the new development of the Audi design star by adding the usual pretentious add-ons with air intakes widely ajar and huge spoiler-works supposed to enhance the impression of sportive power.

This menacing 430 horsepower tone-on-tone limited edition pony car comes straight from the mind of Jack Roush himself and is set to stalk the streets of Gotham City, and the rest of the country.
Jack Roush had the vision, and the ROUSH Stage 3 BlackJack Mustang is the result. He personally developed the content of this black-on-black car, and a prototype build was
