If you are in the market for a sports car, this is one of the best time to get one as there are plenty of fresh choices around. See how the perform in a drag race together.

Shot by Carwow, we have four cars in this race with the first one being the 365bhp Porsche Cayman GTS with a turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four as its powertrain. It is the default class leader and is expected to win but with a 394bhp Audi TT RS Roadster included in the test, it might have its work cut out.

Of course, we have to have the Toyota Supra included in the test and with a 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six that is believed to be underrated at 335bhp, it should not do too bad. Lastly, the guys at Carwow threw in a tuned Alpine A110 as a wild card but with 'only' 300bhp thanks to Litchfield, it looks like it would be last in the race. Or would it be...

    BMW Alpina B5: Comfortable Cruiser

    Who says performance cars need to come with a sporty ride? Last week we tested the BMW Alpina B5 to see if Alpina's take on the performance saloon is a viable alternative to the BMW M5. So what sets this Alpina apart? Firstly, the interior has received a host of luxurious touches to set it apart from the regular 5-series: The digital dashboard in the B5 has its own Alpina-specific design and colour scheme, for example, while the handcrafted Alpina steering wheel is made of Lavalina leather (the same leather used in Rolls-Royce cars), and features blue/green stitching. But what truly sets this car apart from the rest of the performance saloon pack is what is underneath you: With a suspension designed to deliver comfort and refinement in spades, the Alpina is not just comfortable, but sublimely comfortable. Adding to the comfortable cruise is the fact that the B5 is joyously easy-going to drive, with the lightest of pressure on the accelerator sending the car wafting rapidly down the road. With the abundance of humps and rumble strips on our local roads, would Alpina's take on the performance saloon, with its effortless and classy character, be a better suit for your everyday commute? Read our full review here!

    Ferrari LaFerrari does actually have an EV mode?

    When the LaFerrari was launched, Ferrari said that it does not have an EV mode while its rivals, the Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1, had. However, it seems like there are some videos out there that says otherwise. A recently shot video below clearly shows the hypercar moving onto Monza's pitlane without any assistance from the V12 engine. Then seconds later and out of view, the V12 fires into life as the owner demands more speed.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGmqzZ6lAsc&list=UU2uFcIXRIE-K6lOPYkNiSogAnother video below shows another LaFerrari leaving the gates of Maranello ( around the 2 minutes 24 second mark ) in near total silence for a couple of seconds before the V12 wakes up angrily as it picks up speed.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4qpGgHIz64So what does this means then? Did Ferrari do an software update for its customers recently which unlocks this full electric mode? Or did Ferrari choose not to declare the existence of such a mode as the range is too limited? Either way, it is still a win-win situation for owners and fans alike to know that the LaFerarri is able to move around via electric power only!

    Past Masters: The MGB GT

    [extract] In the 1990s a friend of mine used to run a 1960s MGB GT as her daily driver (a metallic red coloured one similar to the one above). I suppose it is because of my acquaintance with this individual that I now adore classic British sports cars from the 1950s and 1960s. I simply do. I suppose it

    Alfa Romeo teases new 4C coupe

    Alfa Romeo has raised consumer's expectations for its upcoming 4C coupe. In the latest teaser for the mid-engined car, it states "BEHOLD, THE CAR TO END ALL CARS IS NIGH".   The new model is previewed by the 4C Concept that was presented at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The production version will derive its styling cues from the 4C concept and will likely be propelled by the 1750 TBi engine currently found in the Giulietta QV. The turbocharged lump produces 232bhp with 340Nm of torque. This is enough to send the Giulietta QV from zero to 100km/h in 6.8 seconds. In the sleeker and lighter 4C, the century sprint timing is expected to be much better. Power will be sent to the rear wheels via a dual-clutch transmission.   The new 4C will be making its debut at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show. Often referred to as the successor to the 8C Competizione, let's hope that the new model can walk the talk.   Note: The photos shown in this blog are the 4C concept
