DeTomaso Guara - The Forgotten Mid-Engine Car From The 1990s

By info@topspeed.com (Dim Angelov)
The 1990s were a great period when it comes to cars. The Lamborghini Diablo, Honda NSX, Porsche 911 (993), Ferrari F355, and many others spawned in this period. Those, however, are just a few of the many examples. It seems that in the 1990s everyone was hell-bent on making a performance car worthy of immortalization in the automotive archives. The De Tomaso Guara is one of those cars that didnt manage to achieve the iconic status it aimed at. Nevertheless... [read more]

Add Alfa Romeo to the list with their Abarth 1000 SP, a tribute to the 1966 original with the same name.

Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition - Driven

The Honda Civic Type R is a very special vehicle. Many will belittle it because it is front wheel drive. Others will say that it is stupid to pay that much money for a fixed up Civic. People that say things like that are inexperienced drivers who have no idea how much fun a proper front wheel drive car can be. And if they need a badge from a high end European car to define a sports car, then they... [read more]

Aston Martin Is Ready To Say Goodbye To The Manual Transmission

By info@topspeed.com (Robert Moore)
It feels like the manual transmission is currently under fire and, despite all the evidence that says its days are numbered, it somehow manages to stick around at least for now, anyway. But, as time goes on, more and more automakers will begin to start phasing it out on mainstream models and sportscars alike. The latest example of this is Aston Martin, which apparently plans to retire its manual gearbox altogether, even if that means breaking promises.
