Video Roundup: Greatest Porsche GT, The New Stratos, New Audi RS6 Avant, and More
Here’s Your Weekly Dose of Supercar Videos
Video is a fantastic way to tell a story or showcase some new and wonderful product. That’s why we spend a fair amount of time on YouTube soaking in all of the video goodness that is churned out by the various YouTubers out there. This week, there have been some fantastic videos, and we thought it best to round up the five best ones for you so that you can enjoy them as much as we have.
The Greatest Porsche GTs
Let the car-crazy folks over at Autocar showcase all of the best Porsche GT cars and compare and contrast the models. These cars are all obviously similar, but when you’re a fanatic about Porsches like we are, you revel digging into the details and seeing what makes each one of these very special machines … well, special. Autocar does some of the best automotive journalism on the web, and the YouTube channel is one of the better options out there for seeing some amazing cars do their thing.
Did the Lexus LFA Fail?
If you’re looking for a high-energy take on one of the most interesting supercars of the last several decades, then you should watch this. The video looks at what the term Halo Car means and how the LFA meets (or doesn’t) that criteria. It also goes into what Lexus is and is all about and how the LFA fits into the company’s narrative. Then the video moves onto the car itself, digging into some of the vehicle’s nuances and eccentricities. Is the car that Jeremy Clarkson says is the best car ever really that or does it suck? Donut Media seeks to answer that.
A First Look at the 2020 Audi RS6 Avant
If you haven’t heard, the 2020 Audi RS6 Avant is here and it will come to the U.S. Are you excited? Because you most definitely should be. We’ve been waiting for this car in the States forever, it seems, and now we’re going to get it. The YouTuber Mr. JWW had a chance to do a walkaround this sweet wagon, and it’s clear that this is probably the best everyday car on earth. The vehicle comes with a twin-turbo V8 engine that makes 591 hp, which is enough to make us long for the model. We’re so glad it’s coming to the U.S. and Mr. JWW does a nice job (as is usual for him) discussing its attributes.
Richard Hammond’s Mid-Life Crisis Vehicle? Ford Ranger Raptor
Yes. The Raptor, and not the F-150 version. The Ranger Raptor. The smaller one. It’s still a seriously badass off-roader, but as Richard Hammond of DriveTribe and The Grand Tour points out, the Raptor works as an everyday vehicl and is the ultimate mid-life crisis vehicle. It’s a truck that can be used for everything from taking your work colleagues to a conference to traversing some of the most extreme terrain on earth. All of it will be done in the comfort of a nice quiet and tech-laden cabin. While we know this isn’t a supercar. The Ranger Raptor’s extreme level of performance warrants it a spot on this list.
The New Stratos – A New Icon?
The Lancia Stratos is the kind of car that you’ll never be able to forget. Nobody will. The car dominated the World Rally Championships in the 1980s and today it’s held up as one of the most important and interesting cars ever. There’s a New Stratos now though, and it’s based on a Ferrari. While it wasn’t purpose-built for rallying, it is an impressive car and Jason Cammisa takes a closer look at the car in this video posted by ISSIMI Official. It’s top-quality work for what looks like an amazing car.
