Kickass wallpapers of the new 991 GT3

We usually don't post only pictures without writing about the car and the experience of the driving on the road, instead we aim them to our Facebook page! But today we're going to be posting something new to us, which is backgrounds! We've caught the new GT3 roaming around town a few days ago and thought we'd take a couple pictures and share them with you guys, and in high resolution for the first time too.

Just click on the picture to open the high resolution version and weep. We assume this is one of the first GT3's in the region to go on the road. Enjoy!

7 Ultimate noses from the Dubai Motorshow 2013

While we were at the Dubai Motorshow 2013, we've captured some of the super cool noses of some of the most exciting cars around the show.

Although they were some crazy other noses, but too bad we couldn't have any privacy around some of them which made the pictures full of feet or finger prints.

Here our personal collection of the ultimate 7 noses of this year's show, and make sure to let us know which of the 7 is your favorite!

Nissan Silvia Drift Build [Part 1]

One of the world's most favorite drift cars, and the most exciting chassis for drifting, was recently brought to Jordanian lands. The Nissan Silvia (owned by Ahmad Daham) became the first in the country to go into this field to compete in Jordan, and maybe later on all around the region.

We've been on spot with the building process since day 1, covering it inch by inch from inside out.
Built by Smart Performance, with the top of the line local mechanics, with the right parts and modifications, aiming to get it up to almost 850 WHP.

The Trio of Mercedes Benz's AMG Black Series

Somewhere in Affalterbach, Germany. A performance studio as they call it, run by AMG and is specialized in taking it further and creating what is called The Black Series. A division that reworks current AMG cars to be powerful enough to establish top performance around top tracks in the world, but legal for the streets.

We were lucky enough to have one of the finest 3 models of the Black Series lineup in Amman, and also be able to have a kickass photoshoot at Al-Abdali project.

The new Porsche Cayman 981 Launch

Since 2005 till 2012, Porsche has remained with its first generation of the Porsche Cayman model and had a facelift back in 2009 with a revised engine setup, aerodynamics and more. Yet still that wasn't enough for Porsche.

In 2012, a new Cayman was unveild at the Geneva Motor show, showing the new revised design of the completely new Cayman which was lower,  faster, lighter, and better in all ways.

We had the chance to attend the launch event at Porsche Jordan, and to learn more about the car in real life, and trust us, it looks even better in person than in pictures.

[Driven] The Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid. Not every hybrid is a Prius.

Most of us petrol heads are afraid of the word "Hybrid", could it be because all we know about hybrid cars is that they trade performance for fuel economy? or maybe because all the hybrid cars we know are grandmother cars that are dull and only made to take us from a place another.

But suddenly this might change, when you introduce the word Hybrid, to Porsche.

Yes, Porsche. One of the world's finest sport cars maker who have made the Boxster, Cayman, and Carrera have recently introduced the power of hybrid engines to their cars where they can combine the power of a standard fuel burning engine, with a healthy and standalone electric engine to boost its standard performance.

University Drift Festival - Students Becoming Masters

University students in Jordan – including crankandpiston mate AmmaniV12 – competed in the inaugural WE Drift Festival, putting their own cars through their sideways paces.

There are certain stereotypes that come with being a student: baked beans on toast eight times a week; all-night essay sessions for last-minute deadlines, oversleeping and missing tutorials by the term-ful, and devoid of financial support. Evenings can quite easily be spent perfecting Forza or Gran Turismo as a consequence.

Nobody appears to have told university students in Jordan, however, with nearly 60 cars entered in the inaugural Drift Festival for universities across the country. An event exclusively billed for amateur runners by organizers "WE Drift", only university students were eligible to compete, so those of you hoping to grab a shot of Mohammad Al Kukhun or Ahmed Daham throwing their cars around by the scruff of their crankcase may be disappointed.

The new 2013 KTM Adventure 1190/R

We were invited a while ago to Beirut by Darwazeh Motors, who recently acquired the KTM Motorcycle dealership in Jordan, to go and check out the latest release by KTM which is the new KTM 1190 Adventure and Adventure R. Where it has been a long awaited bike after the 990.

The new 1190 Adventure will make a big mark in the market, where it has really shown its much more improved performance, handling, and beautiful setups for going on and off the road.

We were welcomed by the Lebanese dealer, A.N.Boukather, to their beautiful showroom where they had various KTM models, but still, our focus went to the beautiful 1190 ;)

[Driven] The new 2013 Audi Q5

The weather was nice last Monday, and we were able to head down to the Dead Sea and spare some free time. And we all know what that the best kind of vehicle for such trips, and could get us the closest to the lowest point on earth.

We were looking for an SUV, and while Audi have released the new version of the Q5 with a great 2.0T TFSI engine, we thought it'd be a great option for a long trip, a comfortable ride, and still be good on gas!
So we grabbed our cameras, picked up the car and headed down Na'our, and down to the Dead Sea.
