A rather unusual Porsche hotrod that is bound to leave fans of the brand shaking their heads has been listed up for sale in the UK.

The car has come to life thanks to custom builder Alexandre Danton and started out as a 1971 Porsche 911T, although very little of that original car remains.

Gone is the rear-mounted flat-six of the 911T; instead, the hotrod is powered by a turbocharged, front-mounted 6.75-liter V8 pumping out over 300 hp that was sourced from a Bentley Mulsanne Turbo. Coupled to this engine is an automatic transmission driving the rear wheels through a live axle. Like any good hot rod, the engine is completely exposed to the elements and one of the headlights has been replaced with a cold air intake to feed the V8.

Unsurprisingly, the car isn’t street legal but Danton did go to the trouble of equipping it with coilovers that allow the ride height to be adjusted.

There’s very little going on in the cabin. In fact, all the car features are a set of thin alloy seats, a flat-bottomed Sparco steering wheel, simple switches and gauges, and a prominent shifter.

Bonhams, who is auctioning the car off, expects it to sell for between £5,000 ($6,965) and £10,000 ($13,930).

The new BMW M4 Competition has a lot going for it but it also has to prove itself against the competition. A good start is to out-perform its older rivals, the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupe and Audi RS5. Throttle House recently gathered these three together for a track test to see if it can do just that.

The cars stack up very nicely against each other on paper. For starters, the M4 Competition rocks a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged six-cylinder muscling out 503 hp and 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque. It is rear-wheel drive and uses an eight-speed automatic transmission. By comparison, the C 63 S Coupe also has 503 hp but a slight torque edge of 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) from its 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8. It too is rear-wheel drive and has a seven-speed automatic transmission.

Last but not least is the Audi RS5 that’s outfitted with a 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 with 444 hp and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. It has an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic and, more importantly, a Quattro all-wheel drive system.

In a drag race, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that the Audi comes out on top thanks to its far superior traction. The M4 Competition followed not too far behind while the C 63 S Coupe was left for dead as it spins up its tires too much. The rolling race is even more exciting with the M4 Competition outperforming its rivals by quite a considerable margin.

The review doesn’t discuss how the trio handle or how they compare on the road, but if you’re in the market for a car that accelerates hard, the M4 Competition is certainly a good option.

 

For a brief moment, it looked like everything might have gone crazy in Luton, UK. The truth is much more mundane.

The video, shared on Twitter, showed a BMW in a police livery trying to do donuts in front of Luton Town Hall. Better still, the car had a passenger in it mooning from the back window.

But the Luton Town Council has stepped in to confirm that the video was not legitimate but staged. In what is probably good news for the residence of Luton, the video was actually shot on the set of a TV show that had permission to use the area for filming.

The town made the announcement in a post on its Facebook page, saying that area police were not involved in the incident. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been made public which TV show this was being filmed for.

This was production…

Many have pointed out that the donuts attempted in the video were not performed especially well. Although we don’t want to cast aspersions on the stunt driver, if you would like to succeed at your donuts next time you’re being filmed, here’s a video from Team O’Neil Rally School that teaches you how to properly do a donut.
