Bringing a very public face to Fiat’s cooperation with Chrysler are these two specially prepared 468hp Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 models. They were delivered to Scuderia Ferrari Formula One drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa at the Fiorano circuit in Maranello, Italy for their personal transport.

The identical vehicles each feature an aggressive SRT exterior finished in the unmistakable Rosso Corsa signature red paint. The iconic, seven-slot Jeep front grille was painted matte black with red inserts. A race-inspired black stripe with a white accent was applied to the front and rear bumpers, hood, roof and rear spoiler.

Additional details included a matte black-painted sunroof, carbon fiber mirror caps and a gloss-black rear light bar with red accents on the Jeep logo.

To complete the unique exterior, the Italian flag was painted on the underside of the rear spoiler as a tribute to the Ferrari F150º racecar. The ride height was lowered 1.5” and both vehicles ride on 20” forged wheels, which were also painted black.

The cabin was also enhanced with Ferrari Red leather inserts on the seats. The door panels, center armrest and instrument panel boast red leather as well.

The leather-wrapped SRT8 steering wheel features red contrasting stitching, while the instrument cluster has yellow dials to give the a look of a Ferrari GT car.

LOOKING BACK AT THE SUPER STREET COROLLA The new 2021 Toyota Corolla is an entry-level car that we’ve had a ton of experience with as we built a 2019 hatchback two years ago. With the help of our friends at Auto Tuned and a rendering by Jon Sibal, we transformed our little XSE into a

Putting down the first few sentences of a feature like this 1987 Honda CRX Si is a little tougher than usual. It’s not the familiar story of picking up an old, used Honda, adding wheels and a drop before giving in and going all out on a full-blown build. Furthermore, to be clear, it’s also

Rodrez: It’s the measuring stick that offers as much speculation and attempts to discredit driver achievement as it does real-world data and raw, obsessively focused attempts to chip away at the clock.

It’s safe to say that Angel Pena, owner of this supercharged 2008 Acura TSX, has a “type.” Having been enamored with Acura’s entry-level sedan ever since it was first introduced, he knew right away he’d get his hands on one, and eventually, he did just that. Today, a decade later, he’s moved on to his
