ITALIAN FLAVOUR FOR NEW WOLFRACE WHEEL

It’s all too easy to forget that Wolfrace’s range is as large as it is, and while many of the firm’s most prominent offerings can be found in the Eurosport range, there are plenty of other, equally attractive designs. The Milano is the latest release within the Wolfrace GB line.

The Milano is an exclusive wheel and can only be ordered in one, suitably high-end finish, Titanium, a colour which serves to underline its sporting nature. The Milano can be ordered in an impressive selection of different sizes though, with the smallest, a svelte 5.5x14in. Even the largest version of the More >

IT’S A REVOLUTION

‘It’s not a Replica; it’s a Revolution’, so says Wade Morrison of Phoenix, Arizona-based  Stärke Automotive who recently announced a very new take on the age-old and cherished Porsche 356 Speedster theme.

Called the Stärke 357 Revolution, the cars are based on Porsche Boxster 986, 987 or 987 ‘facelift’ generations, which means a donor aged between 1998 – 2012 with power from 225bhp to 400bhp.

For a start the Stärke models are much larger than a classic 356 Speedster, as the Boxster is huge by comparison, but for many it’s certainly going to offer a welcome change from Volkswagen Beetle floorpan, suspension More >
