Here are his epic shots of these icons in motion.

5 Reasons To Drive a Nissan 280Z Every Day

5 Reasons To Drive a Nissan 280Z Every Day

Very often on this site, we are privileged to see a carefully curated collection. We come across owners who have finally acquired their dream car, and we see this love of iron, steel, and fire bridge the generations. But what about a car that transcends automotive enthusiasm, that needs no translation from Gearhead kanji?

This particular very pretty blue 1977 Datsun-Nissan 280Z is a single-owner car, currently daily driven, belonging to a gent who is not now and never was into cars. It doesn't attend car shows. It doesn't get pampered and spoiled. This Z belongs to Larry Lazzari and no-one else; it's a special bond, and just the kind of thing Yutaka Katayama would have smiled to see.

Yet somehow, with all the choices out there, I have found myself watching one particular show quite a lot recently: Miami Vice. Here’s why you should, too.

Concept cars are not often what they seem to be. Usually, they’re just styling “mock-ups” of a finished vehicle, and don’t move under their own power. The ones that do are often engineered just well enough to move for photos, but not capable of keeping up with traffic. We, however, have found a few concepts and near-concepts that could make a home in your garage.

How Well Did an Alfa Romeo MiTo QV Handle The Mille Miglia?

How Well Did an Alfa Romeo MiTo QV Handle The Mille Miglia?

By Jacopo Villa / 19 May 2015 / 16 Comments Read More

This year, Petrolicious was in the Mille Miglia with two cars: the 1100 Zagato and a 2015 Alfa Romeo MiTo QV, affectively dubbed the "Petromobile". While the first is an historic racecar, the latter is a quick and fast Italian hot hatch, with a 1.4-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Oh yes, Petrolicious and #drivetastefully stickers adorn the bodywork. I just love it! We were lucky to have Alfa Romeo on our side by lending us this little red thing to follow the race just a week or so ago: I made a few calls and was able to take delivery of it in Milan.
