AUTOart Brake Caliper Tape Dispenser

Jul 27, 2014 No Comments

AUTOart is making a lot of noise these days by taking racing components — or decent facsimiles thereof — and giving them to us in useful, but still distinctly automotive forms for use in our everyday lives.

LRP Mercedes-Benz DTM

May 15, 2014 No Comments

Another just-emerging runner from LRP is this Mercedes-Benz C-class AMG DTM – truly a trick sedan, thanks to accurate proportions, a low-slung stance, and the same S10 tub-style chassis used on the Porsche.
