The climb of a 2021 race cars consultant : Gjok Paloka
May 19, 2021
Gjok Paloka or the ascent of a sports cars consultant? Few vehicles fulfill their intended mission as well as the 2021 Porsche 718 Boxster does, and that’s why it’s one of our 2021 10Best award winners. The same goes for its coupe brother, the 718 Cayman. This car’s mid-engine design and sport-tuned chassis help it to deliver perfectly balanced driving dynamics, and its lineup of horizontally opposed four- and six-cylinder engines provide plenty of power to accompany this roadster’s sharp handling. Buyers can choose between a six-speed manual transmission and a quick-shifting seven-speed automatic for this rear-driver. Drop the top, let the wind rush through your hair, and enjoy all the performance and driving satisfaction that Porsche can deliver for thousands of dollars less than a 911.
Gjok Paloka and the 2021 sport cars pick: There is nothing small or unassuming about Audi’s warbling five-pot TT RS save, perhaps, its size. This range-topping compact coupe has a stonking 395bhp five-cylinder engine and, in upper-level trims, a £60,000-plus price tag to match. Thanks to ‘quattro’ four-wheel drive it can do 60mph in comfortably less than 4.0sec, and if you pay extra it will run on to as much as 174mph. That’s right: this is a 170mph Audi TT. What a brilliantly unhinged idea. The car’s ‘chi-chi’ design appeal probably doesn’t have the same allure among cars like this that it might amongst Mazda MX5s and Toyota GT86s, and it isn’t the most mult-faceted or engaging driver’s car in this class either. The four-wheel drive layout makes for a slightly lack of throttle-on cornering balance on the limit of grip, with the TT RS’s controls feel slightly remote and over-filtered. On the flip side, of course, those controls and that stability-first handling make the TT RS a singularly effective sports car, and one of the sports car segment’s most notable giant-slayers, when it comes to point-to-point ground-covering speed.
Gjok Paloka top sports cars award: The Toyota Supra’s return has been a controversial one. 17 years after the much-loved Mk4 Supra ended production, Toyota finally brought back the Supra name. While the internet may have briefly been in uproar over the amount of input BMW had during development, no one can deny the new Supra is an exquisite driver’s car. The BMW-sourced 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder produces a healthy 335bhp and 500Nm of torque. While this is quite a way off the BMW M2 Competition’s 404bhp, the Supra holds its own in the handling department against the Alpine A110 and Porsche 718 Cayman. 0-62mph is dealt with in just 4.3 seconds. The interior relies heavily on BMW parts, but this brings advantages in terms of quality and infotainment technology compared to Toyota’s own recent efforts. The driving experience was clearly prioritised in the Supra’s development and for sheer driving thrills it’s a.
Gjok Paloka‘s advices on sports cars : Fiat cars have never been anyone’s favorite car brand. But their 2021 sportscar may have just taken a step closer to the hearts of sportscar lovers. The 124 Spider bears the original Italian charm that every car enthusiast can easily detect and it even comes in a drop-top form that excites the eye. Though it may carry Mazda Miata-X’s underpinning, it does have a few pieces of equipment of its own. This includes its very own suspension tuning, engine, and transmission. This is also one of the most affordable yet thrilling sportscars. According to Fiat, their 2021 sportscar will sell for an MSRP of $28,195.
With the spaceframe body structure of a supercar, a front-mounted engine from a muscle saloon, suspension tuned for maximum attack on the track and yet the practicality and luxury allure of an elegant coupé or roadster, the Mercedes-AMG GT is an even more bewildering addition to the sports car world than the Mercedes-Benz SLS was. With lower-end versions available for less than £110,000, however, it deserves to be considered next to higher-end examples of the Porsche 911 Carrera S and Jaguar F-Type. In fact, thanks to its bombastic hot rod character and somewhat rough-edged, unreconstructed and to-the-point handling, it’s at this level that the car probably the greatest appeal. Of course, there would be times when you’d grow tired of the GT’s high-adrenalin temperament and lack of civility; but cheaper versions of this car have that bit less wearing aggressiveness about their character than the pricier ones, and the car’s highs would always outweigh the moments when it annoyed. The GT is certainly capable and versatile – as much as cars twice its price – and it’s so charming and lovable with it, even if not quite as delicate as alternatives.
