Dream Drive Ferrari 458

I have been watching some really interesting motorsport videos on YouTube lately such as this fantastic drive in a Ferrari 458 Spider up Italy's Stelvio Pass. A beautiful car in a beautiful country. In reality though he must have got up mighty early to find these roads so deserted. I'm sure the bicycles and tourists would be in the way and it would be quite frustrating driving a car like this on such a spectacular road. Cars like this are more of an expression of what can be technically and aesthetically achieved totally unrelated to practical considerations. In the real world there's traffic congestion and cops.

The NEW sexiest car in the world

This is the new Scion iQ, made by Toyota. Have not seen one on the road yet but it looks like this will be an instant leader in the tiny car field. Starting at $16,760 in Canada this is about 1K more than the Toyota Yaris. I do like the tough stubby look of this car though, typically I find it rather overstyled.

Sexiest car in the world

UK magazine Top Gear has just named the Fiat 500 the sexiest car in the world. Nope, that's not a misprint; according to Clarkson and co, the Fiat Cinquecento is the sexiest piece of motoring metal ever.
