Jaw dropping, meticulously detailed restorations of pre ’94 Porsche 911s is what Singer Designs does best. All the panels are replaced with tweaked carbon fiber versions from their own custom moulds. Interior, trimmings, accessories, and internals are all re-imagined as well. Amazing work! Check out the attention to detail after the jump…

BMW 1 Series M Coupe

Friday, December 10th, 2010

After much teasing and anticipation BMW has finally released pics/specs on their new BMW 1 series M Coupe. Unfortunately the last few decades the M Division seems to have been transitioning from standing for “Motorsport” to “Marketing” thus bringing out bloated products completely against their heritage. This new M Coupe is a throwback to the original e30 M3 which was and always will be a pure drivers car. At EP we have one of these rare classics in the garage and can vouch for it being the ultimate expression of BMW M (Some pics of our beast after the jump). Engineers set out to recreate the old magic and have not compromised this time around. Special design elements to get your heart racing with the driving dynamics to match, this thing is going to be an instant classic. Production will run around 2500 units with three color choices, Black, White, & Orange. We’re definitely running over to the dealer to get our name down for one. More pics after the jump…

Audi Quattro Concept

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

Audi premiered their new Quattro concept car a few weeks back in homage to the original Quattro of the 80’s. Design details we love: embossed audi rings on the quarter panel; machined aluminum steering wheel base; carbon fibre accents on the wing mirrors, rear lights, door panels; air vents in along the bonnet; the slight curves at the end of the wheel spokes. Usually concepts are so far from being production ready but this one seems ready to go. Come on Audi, build it! More pics after the jump…

Secret NYC Subway Station

Monday, November 8th, 2010

The NYC City Hall Subway station is a hidden architectural gem that has been closed for decades. The station was built in 1904 and features tall arches, brass fixtures, and amazing skylights. Even though the station has been closed it is still being used as a turnaround point for the #6 train. Next time you are in NYC jump on the #6 train and instead of getting off it’s last stop, Brooklyn Bridge, stay on the train till it reaches it’s turnaround point at City Hall. More pics after jump…

BMW Classics Private Collection

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

BMW Classic is located close to the BMW Museum in Munich. BMW Classic was created to archive, restore, and preserve the company’s 90 year history. Earlier this year they opened their doors to the public allowing access to old vehicle new parts and their restoration services. Hidden in the back warehouses of BMW Classic is an amazing collection of the company’s past greats. This private museum has never been shown to the public but a source at autoblog.com was granted access. We are big BMW fans at EP, this collection showcases the diversity of their great designs over the years. The orange Jager CSL is drools, from the body flares, to the duck tail, not to mention the BBS wheels…wow! More after the jump…

Friday, October 8th, 2010

Blitz Motorcycles recently restored a 1963 Series 2 BMW Motorcycle. Love the matte black as it lets you focus on the amazing details of this classic. Hmmm…I think we need to rethink the paint scheme on the classic MINI sitting in the EP garage. More pics after the jump…
