Yes you heard right! A vintage Toyota Corolla. But this one is pretty nicely sorted out—-has a very ‘Vintage JDM’ feel to it. Spotted in Brooklyn.
definitely (along with the RS3) the best sounding production road car under $100k. There’s nothing like the 5 Cylinder gurgle. This car is tuned to 485hp. Slick video too.
Thanks to Skaala for posting this!
the BMW 1M is a cool car, even though lately i’ve found myself not liking it as much as I thought i would—-maybe it’s the endless hype surrounding it, maybe it’s because i think the TT-RS is even cooler—-but there is one thing we can all agree on: the owner of THIS 1M should be dragged into the streets and interrogated for bad taste!

Umbrella makes for a nice roofline on this Triumph TR6!
The owners of early 70s 911s who try to make their cars look ‘modern’ should be imprisoned. This guy, on the other hand has done the glorious thing and ‘backdated’ his 1988 911 into a 1971 Porsche 911 with upgraded parts and spec’d out.
The result is something which is quite simply…..wonderful.

ah, i had no idea this even existed—-a racing version of the modern Maserati Quattroporte, lovingly referred to as Evo.
This car is privately raced in the SUPERSTARS SERIES and raced this past weekend by a Swiss team at Monza. Hot stuff, yeah….

a couple bonus lo-res fotos of this new find.
Well i’m not a fan of the MK2 TT’s weird styling….in fact i think the styling sucks! But holy hell i spotted this one linked to on QW today and i gotta say it looks great…probably the best modified MK2 i’ve seen and definitely the only NON TT-RS MK2 i’ve seen that really gets me going. So maybe it does have potential?
……but it’s no MK1….that’s for sure…..but this one looks pretty damn good.

IEDEI loves the Porsche Panamera. ”WHY??” you say? well after seeing it in person, taking a seat inside it, and just admiring the boldness of the design and features, it was hard to NOT like it.
The Cayenne was always a failure in design and execution, although it has proven to be quite popular to the SUV driver who always wanted a Porsche.
The Panamera is a different beast altogether. It’s graceful, intimidating, and actually composed of quite a fascinating design. Want proof? Check out the Techart Porsche Panamera revealed at the Frankurt Auto Show last year.
It seems that they have worked out a plan with Audi of Germany to be able to bring Audi RS6s (C6, current) as well as B7 RS4 Avants and R8s to North America directly from Germany! To any other Audi afficianados such as myself—this is HUGE news. For a very long time, we’ve been stranded by the products being provided to the US market when it comes to ‘special’ Audis. We did receive the previous generation C5 RS6, but only in sedan form (NO Avant in North America). We also received the B7 RS4 sedan (NO Avant in North America). We are not going to receive the C6 RS6 at all——until NOW!
After creating a working agreement with Audi of Germany in Ingolstadt, Francois and Horchaus have found a way for certain cars such as the current RS6 to be modified according to US Spec BY Audi themselves! After these modifications, the cars are imported into North America (Canada OR the United States) and undergo customs, duty, etc….and are brought here as legal, street-ready versions of these European cars. Since Horchaus is working directly with Audi to ensure the modifications are done to North American spec, this is a whole new way of getting these cars into the United States legally and safely. The OEM spec cars will have an AUDI WARRANTY, since they are brand new from the factory.
The prices of these cars vary, however If someone really wants a brand new C6 Generation Audi RS6 Avant, it’s gonna cost them $115,000 CAD (Canadian dollars) and $125,000 CAD with the 730hp MTM upgrade (including all import, shipping and duty fees).
******As of right now, they have already brought TWO C6 RS6s successfully; one into the US and another into Canada******
At the moment, they have another 4 cars on the way. one R8 (sold), a B7 RS4 Avant (sold), and one C6 RS6 Avant and a C6 RS6 Sedan; which are both available to purchase.
A further reason to be excited, is that Horchaus is currently also evaluating the possibility of bringing other Audis in the same manner; cars such as the current Audi TT-RS and Audi S3. Really exciting stuff, and groundbreaking progress in the world of importing Audis.
Stay tuned to IEDEI for further updates about this as I get more information. So far I only have the pricing for RS6s, when I receive further information about pricing for others I will pass them along! Meanwhile, if you are interested in these cars, follow the link to the MTM/Horchaus website for more information and contact info.
UPDATE: B7 RS4 Avants are CEO company cars, and will be titled as 2nd hand. They are $70,000 CAD (Canadian dollars) and the R8 V10 is $105,000 CAD (Canadian dollars) which is amazingly good pricing….the R8 V10 turns out to much less than a comparably ordered US version.
UPDATE 2: Some people have been asking “well why wouldn’t Audi bring these cars in the first place????”…..the answer was explained to me by Francois. Audi of Germany wants them to go everywhere, the reason why these cars don’t come to the US or Canada is simple; Audi of America and Audi of Canada don’t believe they have a market and do not readily import them here.
