OttoMobile’s never been short on nostalgic scale models from the ’80s, ’90s and double oughts, particularly from the Audi brand. Even still, they’ve never done a B5 RS 4 to date, and to our knowledge no one’s ever done Audi’s arch-flared Avant in anything larger than 1:43rd scale (looking at you Minichamps). It is definitely…

The democratization of the internet on artist and niche manufacturer production has always been something of a fascination.

In the entirety of the automotive industry, there are but a few automobiles that can legitimately carry the title “icon”. Lucky for Land Rover set to publish a book on its long-running Defender and Series generations of 4×4 called simply that… “icon”, these illustrious off-roaders qualify. The new tome launches 69 years to the day that…

There are few rally cars more legendary and memorable than the Lancia Delta S4. These cars, swathed in iconic Martini Racing livery, were a major player in Gruppe B, one of the most daunting if short-lived eras of rally racing.
