Is This Vanquish Zagato EVEN MORE Beautiful?



Aston Martin's House of Beautiful in Frankfurt is home to a presentation of the stunning new Vanquish Zagato Volante and also the V8 Vantage AMR; alongside the AM-RB 001 Concept and a DB11. Having previously called the Vanquish Zagato Coupe the most beautiful car on the roads, does the Volante look even better? Aston Martin decided not to host a stand at IAA but instead put on a private event with an opportunity to take a close look around some of their new cars. Highlighted by the Vanquish Zagato Volante, one of 99 in the world, and the V8 Vantage AMR of which there are only 200 to be built. In addition we can see the AM-RB 001, the concept for the upcoming Valkyrie hypercar in partnership with Red Bull Racing. Thanks for watching, Tim Subscribe: http://bit.ly/Shmee150YT

Mercedes-AMG Project One or Aston Martin Valkyrie?



The hypercar game is moving on fast, Mercedes-AMG have launched the Project One that will go up against Aston Martin and Red Bull's Valkyrie; both offering insane levels of performance in cars that simply look like they have come back in time from the future. Where the Chiron, LaFerrari, P1 and 918 Spyder have familiarity as road cars, Project One and Valkyrie have more appearance of something straight from the race track. Let's take a look at these two up close, I can't wait to see them go head to head! Aston Martin did not host a stand at IAA but did however put on a private event where we can see the original AM-RB 001 concept. This was the clay model launched to introduce the car to the world but prior to the second iteration with some further changes that came with the name we now know it by of Valkyrie. The car features a 6.5l NA V12 supported by electric motors for a power output of around 1,146PS while carrying a weight of only 1,030kg… it doesn't take much to realise this is going to be a fast car! The significant difference to any other car of the era is the cabin in a teardrop shape with most of the downforce capability coming from underneath the car. Mercedes-AMG brought the long await Project One to IAA with Lewis Hamilton bringing it on stage, it will be the closest experience to Formula 1 as it features the familiar 1.6l turbocharged V6 that revs to 11,000rpm from the championship winning F1 racecar. Supported again by electric motors the power output is headed towards 1,034PS with a target weight of around 1,300kg; again these are extraordinary numbers. Both cars are no doubt spectacularly fast, both have price tags around £2.5 million, both look crazy and feature innovative aerodynamics, but what a head to head this is going to make when customer cars start to arrive in the years to come, bring it on!

Collecting His New BMW 1M Coupe!



After searching for well over a year, Shmee team member, Seb T has bought himself his dream car – a BMW 1M Coupe! Seb is normally found behind the camera, snapping photos, or helping us run the various social media pages like on Facebook. However, like us all he's a proper car guy and has made the step up from a Fiat 500 to his perfect car in the form of BMW's manual hot-coupe, the 1M. What do you think!? Congratulations to him. To head to the dealer, I jump into my Focus RS to stop by an pick up both Seb and also Ben before coming back in the 1M for Seb's first drive. Somehow the torrential rain of the morning managed to clear itself up and become quite a nice day for a new car!

HEAVYWEIGHT BATTLE: BMW M5, Audi RS4 Avant OR Mercedes AMG S63?

FIRST LOOK at the NEW Bentley Continental GT



The third generation of the Bentley Continental GT has arrived! Albeit initially quite familiar, the design is honed in and refined and the interior has a completely new look with both technology and luxury galore. The stand out feature has to be the rotating centrepiece and vast display that comes with it, is it a gimmick or awesome? To take a look around the car I'm joined by David Parker, head of product marketing for the Bentley Continental GT. Let's explore the new features, materials and reasoning behind various aspects of the new car.

THIS is the Mercedes-AMG PROJECT ONE!



This is the Mercedes-AMG Project One up close and personal at the world premiere, it has landed! Bringing a Formula 1 engine to the road, the Project One arrives at the 2017 Frankfurt IAA with Lewis Hamilton at the wheel. Let's go for a first look and walkaround to take in the epic new hypercar. With over 1000PS coming from the turbocharged 1.6l V6, crazy aerodynamics and design touches, and an interior that looks truly 'racecar', this is quite something.

This is WHY I’m Getting a New TVR Griffith!



The new TVR Griffith has landed and who better to show us around than Les Edgar, the man responsible for bringing TVR back and presenting the new car at the Goodwood Revival! Personally I'm very impressed and excited for mine to arrive, what do you think of the new Griffith? My apologies for the difficulty with the sound in the bustling hall in which the car was released. Things become clearer as we continue but Les has a lot of knowledge on the car and there are some lovely things to hear about it. With 500 of the Launch Editions due to customers that are now touching on being entirely sold-out, it packs a 5 litre NA V8, a 6-speed manual gearbox, and rear-wheel-drive – also known as the perfect driver's car combination.

UPsetting a Ferrari! How to Drive the Nurburgring Nordschleife



It's time to UPset a Ferrari 430 Scuderia in the VW Up with Misha! There's more to the Nurburgring than just a fast car; as experience, understanding and proper technique are all vastly more important to complete a safe and quick lap – as demonstrated here on track in the Apex Sub 7Up alongside a Ferrari 430 Scuderia… Did you see this coming? Following my recent outing in the McLaren 675LT Spider, I jump back in with Misha to take you on a guided outing around the Nordschliefe. If you want to drive the Ring, you should either hire an instructor to show you around or at least study it in advance to take in the brake and turn-in points and begin to understand the Green Hell. For more from Misha, head over to http://www.youtube.com/wallerus and of course be sure to visit Apex Nurburg at the Nurburgring! Thanks for watching, Tim Subscribe: http://bit.ly/Shmee150YT

I Found Myself in a £50 MILLION FERRARI!



Sometimes the very best days pop up out of nowhere, and as automotive experiences go I am not sure I could ever beat this day at the Goodwood Revival! Combine together the legendary motor circuit, with the most iconic car of all time in the form of the Ferrari 250 GTO, and an incredible driver in Dario Franchitti and I'm left completely and totally speechless! What would be your dream automotive experience? Poor weather during the day at Goodwood wasn't going to get in the way of BenzeneBen and I exploring around and taking a look through the paddocks, home to what could easily be £1 billion of cars in total when you combine the Ferrari 250 LMs, Aston Martin DB4 GTs, Ford GT40s, all the Formula 1 cars of the 1950s and 60s, and so much more! Then add in the launch of the new TVR Griffith; the first new car launch at Revival to date and a future car in the Shmee150 garage. It just gets better! A very big thanks to Lord March, Dario, and everybody involved in an amazing day out. Thanks for watching, Tim Subscribe: http://bit.ly/Shmee150YT

I’ve BOUGHT a NEW TVR Griffith!



TVR ARE BACK! This is the new TVR Griffith, revealed for the first time at the Goodwood Revival and I'm pleased to say that I have an order for an early car as a future Shmeemobile! What do you think? The British marque came under new ownership 4 years ago and is back now with the resurrection of the Griffith name; a car focused on driver engagement with a naturally aspirated V8, manual gearbox, rear wheel drive and a host of trick technologies. Developed in partnership with Gordan Murray Design and Cosworth; it's powered by a 5.0l V8 with 500PS and weights just 1250kg with the iStream chassis. Top speed is in excess of 200mph and the sprint to 60mph comes in sub-4; it's fast! The design is iconic TVR with side-exit exhausts, touches that come from their history but a modernised and completed look. The man in charge, Les Edgar, assures also that this is a new company and therefore reliability will be in a new league. I have a deposit placed via the lovely folks at Top Cats Racing, due for an early car in early 2019 (or late 2018 if I'm lucky) and honestly, I cannot wait! This is designed as a purist driving machine, it's an iconic British manufacturer, and I'm very excited for their journey. Thanks for watching, Tim Subscribe: http://bit.ly/Shmee150YT

THIS Bugatti is the World’s Most Expensive Mirror!



The Bugatti Veyron will forever be an icon in all of its forms, particularly the rarer special editions and colour combinations. Having now settled slightly in Frankfurt, I popped along to a local centre of automotive activity, Klassikstadt. Needless to say, there's a lot to see, from the Aventador S and Huracan Performante at Lamborghini Frankfurt to the Veyron, FXX and P1 lurking upstairs. What's your favourite?

When You’re BORED at the Nurburgring!



We're bored at the Nurburgring, however it's the epicentre of car things so let's find some stuff that's going on! Ending with a run of the Atomic GT-R on the dyno was not remotely a bad way to go about it. Just listen to how that sounds as it pops a flame or two… Starting with a stop trackside at the Nordschleife where the BMW Driving Experience M4 train is heading in both directions on circuit, we then head over to the industrial park via the scene of a rather intriguing Aston Martin crash. The first visit is to GetSpeed where the workshop is loaded with racing goodies and things to see: 911 GT3 Cup, Huracan GT3, GT4 Clubsports etc. Next we head to Atomic and RENNtech where we can listen to the GLE 63 making quite some rasp before finding out the Atomic GT-R is heading over to the REM dyno! Off we go, where we can explore the REM workshop and see the full spec Atomic car that's being worked on. Then it's actually dyno time with the GT-R being programmed to introduce a rolling launch control system for rolling starts in the drag races, quite intriguing!

Going around the Nurburgring in a supercar is one thing, but experiencing it in a full bred racecar is a different level. During VLN practice I jump on board a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup with Skillers.com and @flipper0711 to see what it's all about… How epic is this!? For the video, let me stop talking and just enjoy this legendary track in a car that screams away from turn to turn. During the lap we spend some time with a Ferrari 458 too for added fun, being able to see the pace with which we move. Thanks for watching, Tim Subscribe: http://bit.ly/Shmee150YT

When It All Goes Wrong



The Sub 7UP was all set for a lap of the Nurburgring when unfortunately it all went a little bit wrong… Following a bad accident, the track was closed for the evening. However, in true Ring fashion the car park became an interesting little event of its owned to take a look around. Misha and I will have to give it another go soon! What do you think of the Up!?

I FINALLY Did the Nurburgring in My McLaren 675LT!



I finally took my McLaren 675LT Spider around the Nurburgring Nordschleife! It's been long overdue but with Misha from Apex alongside me on a Sky Limit Events trackday and a fairly empty circuit on which to drive, this made for a true recipe for fun. And before you ask, somewhere in the 8:30s but that's not what this is about. Driving the Green Hell is a particularly daunting task, to me it is a totally different level to Spa, Silverstone or any other F1 grade circuit. It's narrow, unpredictable, long and has a deadly history. The run-off space is non-existant and if you get it wrong you will not only kiss goodbye to your car but can quite easily cause yourself a lot of pain and trouble. Ergo, number one is to ensure that somebody who knows the ropes can give you assistance and given this represents only my 7th, 8th and 9th laps ever on this 21km circuit – that was a must with Misha rejoining me after last year's outing in my Focus RS. Running under trackday format with Sky Limit Events, helmets are mandatory (unlike Touristenfahrten days), and the main straight is fully open for consecutive laps and very high top speeds – in my case up to 302km/h on the dashboard. It was the perfect environment in which to learn without putting either the car or myself at substantial risk. What I do know though, is that I need (and want) a lot more time here and with my inbound Porsche 911 GT3 that is going to happen vastly more – bring it on!
