Seat Leon Cup Racer for Worthersee is one bad machine

In the 'Just Because It's Awesome' category we have the Seat Leon Cup Racer, a kerb-stomping trinket the Spanish brand took to the GTI Wörthersee gathering.

Supercar parade entering highway is mesmerizing

In what must have looked and sounded to motorists on the M6 like an invasion of The Swarm, a parade of 50 enthusiast gems leaving a charity event were caught shooting down the on-ramp and merging into traffic. There were plenty of Porsches joining the 959 and Ducktail above, Aston Martins going …

We've pretty much been digging on every <i>Petrolicious</i> video that we've come across thus far, but this new title, <i>Never Enough Alfa</i>, may be the most charming to date.
