Mazzanti Evantra
Not many of us must have heard about Mazzanti Automobili based out of Italy. However, back in 2013, they had launched a high-performance coupe, christened the Evantara. Mazzanti Automobili was founded by Luca Mazzanti and Walter Faralli in 2002. Mazzanti came up with the concept of handcrafted supercars and maybe that is why not many people know about it. However, in terms of exclusivity, Mazzanti owners are at the top of the pecking order because no two handcrafted supercars are ever the same.
Stelvio Pass
We have a few roads in the world that every motorhead dreams of driving on. The Autobahn, the Transfagarasan Highway, Kolli Hills, the Ring Road and Route 66 are a few on our list of holy tarmac. But wait. We are missing out on one. It is none other than the mesmerising Stelvio Pass in Italy. Italy being the heaven of supercars, surely has one of the most angelic driving routes in the world.

Lamborghini Countach
It was a good day, the year was 1971 and the date was the 11th of March. The city of Geneva was busy and was all set to raise the curtains at the Geneva Motor Show.

Ferrari’s arch-rival was coming up with a supercar for the generations and once the veil was lifted, everyone in the room dropped their jaws to the floor. The Lamborghini Countach was presented to the public. What a spectacle that mus
History of Fiat - The most distinguished brand in Automotive History

However, the innovative vision and a grand scheme for the company, saw Agnelli being appointed as the Managing Director of Fiat in 1902.

Push Button vs Key
Those were the good old days when you had a key that did most of the stuff in your car. Well, by most of the stuff, I mean, opening the door and then actually turning on the car. Wait, that sounded wrong, but you get it. Slowly, the car key came with buttons and you used those to lock and unlock the doors. But then, as we got lazier, the key turned into a key fob and the slot where the key used to go in, became a button. A Start/Stop button. Today, you even have wristbands to open your can and y
VW Modular System

Is this a world we want our children to grow up in? As a true car enthusiast will say, manual cars are more engaging and who even drives an automatic car? And why the torture? But traffic is increasing. Cars are being reprimanded of free spaces to stretch their legs, every country doesn’t have an Autobahn and hence automatics have started to make s

Lancia Delta : The Best of both worlds, Road and Rally
The Lancia Delta was a road car with a niche rally pedigree. Launched in 1979, the Delta was one of the hottest four-door hatchbacks one could buy and during that period, Lancia was also dominating the rally world. This led to more explicit publicity and a huge fanbase for the Delta and its various iterations. Lancia introduced 3 generations of the Delta, which spanned from 1979 to 2008, but as the years went by, the express desire to own a Delta died down too. The Lancia Delta was as good on t
