Recently I had the chance to strap behind the wheel of the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster only to walk away with the urge to get it on a race track. Not having the time or resources to do such a thing at the moment, I have taken to the internet to find videos and test of the new SLS AMG Roadster tackling a track just to satisfy my curiosity as to how well the beastly German roadster handles itself. Tiff Needell, famous for his edgy test drive reactions to some of the fastest cars around, beats us to the punch when he pits the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster against the new Aston Martin DBS Volante.

Tiff takes both cars head on while edging them around a wet test course in the exclusive EVO magazine video below. Enjoy!

The editorial director and founder of EVO Magazine, Harry Metcalfe, goes to the Pagani factory in Italy to take the Zonda 760 RS out for a drive tailing the original development car for Pagani through the hills.

The 760 horsepower Zonda 760 RS is touted as the most extreme Zonda ever, having 90 horsepower more than the Zonda Cinque and 20hp more than the Zonda R. As Harry describes it, the 760 RS is a road going car made out of requests from Pagani customers who simply wanted “more”. Check out the exclusive video below of Harry doing a full walk around and putting the 7.3-liter Zonda 760 RS through its paces before it gets shipped to its new owner.

Update: The “new owner of this beast” is reportedly F1 Champion Lewis Hamilton.

Chris Harris, from EVO Magazine, takes a trip state-side to sunny California for a drive in the all-new 2012 Porsche 911. Interestingly enough, the road conditions are not up to Chris’ standards but he seems to somehow manage to have a good time test driving a vehicle that he cannot find much to disagree with. In the end Chris agrees that the new 991 iteration is not perfect, but it’s very very close to being so. Enjoy the video below!



Video: EVO Magazine Pits Lexus LFA against Ferrari 599 GTO in Top Speed Run 29

Considering how Lexus has placed their LFA at the upper echelon of the exotic car breed we think it would only be a fair battle to pit it against the Ferrari 599 GTO in a top speed run. Luckily for us we don’t have to haggle with a new owner of an LFA or 599 GTO to accomplish this test but rather go to the pros at EVO magazine.

EVO magazine recently did a short on-track film of the Lexus LFA and Ferrari GTO for a top speed run at the helm of Richard Meaden and Roger Green in the passenger seat. Check out their exclusive video of the two and see which comes out on top.

Chris Harris of EVO Rides In BMW 1 Series M Coupe 15

As funny and interesting as it may seem for people to been seen driving around BMW’s prototype 1-Series M Coupe still in camouflage, it still makes for great entertainment.

You will find the video of Chris riding in the new BMW 1 Series M Coupe below. Is the BMW 1-Series M Coupe a true one-of-a-kind M-Car or is it BMW’s edition of “honey I shrunk the M3”?

From Chris’s Blog:
“At the M3 GTS launch yesterday BMW also rolled-out a 1 Series M development hack.
This caught us all slightly unawares, especially when they said they’d do a few passenger rides.

So, in the true spirit of low-quality, gorilla video I did my best to capture something.
The car is very interesting and should help drag BMW M back towards its heartland.
It’s currently running a 135i motor with a re-map and different exhaust, so the sound was slightly
disappointing. It felt quick though. expect around 340bhp from the production car Q1 2011.

Chassis wise it’s a load of E92 M3 bits wedged underneath a set of wider wheel arches.
It’s a very interesting looking thing: it’s almost square. The cambers give it that classic M-car look.”
