LaSupra, sadly not launching, guessing because they can't chock the rear wheel! #rrg14 #mattdearphoto

I originally shot this car back in 2014, it was actually one of my first magazine feature cars!

Having owned the car for 8 years now Stef has been hard at work improving this car, in to something he now describes as 'scary', and looking at the spec list it's no wonder why!

Based on the XU10 engine, this has been enlarged to 2.1L, and completely reworked to allow a supercharger that was originally for a small block Mustang be bolted to it, to produce 330hp and 250ftlb of torqu...e at the flywheel, now you can see why it's probably a little scary to drive!

Along with this Stef has basically left no stone unturned over the years, R33 GTS front brakes, Bilstein Grp A suspension and a re-worked rear beam that he makes himself, much like a lot of this car actually!

Some things get better with age, and this 28 year old 205 GTi is most definitely one of them!

Originally shot for Performance French Cars Magazine, Charlie Dunn has taken a Dimma kitted Clio, and squeezed the 4 wheel drive drivetrain including YB engine of a Sierra Cosworth under the tiny body of the Mk1 Clio!

In Summer last year I took my first trip to Poland for Raceism.com's The Event, and it was a bloody good weekend. 100% will go again this year if I can.

Matthew Dear Photography added 425 new photos to the album: Raceism: The Event 2017.

First time to Poland, and it certainly won't be the last as Raceism.com put on an incredible show with a completely hand picked selection of Europe's best automotive offerings.

2017 your time is up, time to drink a lot to send you off!

@nicksinghsahota just ruined an all BMW best nine, but it's not a bad centre image 😉

Cheers all!

Biggest project yet with Resto Shack, as they had to remove both sides of this UK delivered Golf Rallye to properly repair it, along with fitting a N.O.S back panel and many other smaller repairs to wind back the clock and get this Rallye as good as new.

9 months in the making, we present Mikes Golf Rallye rebuild. With video and editing from Matthew Dear Photography and an awesome sound track from local band Ethyrfield. Turn on the HD and sound up for this one!

Here is @StarlaM2's 2nd stage, a collaboration between @evolveautomotive and @marr_ldn / @living_art8 to create an Art Car that follows in the footsteps of @BMW to mix the worlds of art and automotive. I remember studying about the Warhol and Lichtenstein cars back in college so it's pretty cool to have been part of this tribute to them. Will be putting together a mini documentary style video about it too which I'm really looking forward to people seeing 😊 #MattDearPhoto #EvolveAutomotive #MARRLDN #LivingArt #Eventuri #6SixtyDesign #BMW #M2 #F87 #F87M2 #ArtCar #BMWArtCar #BMWM2 #MPower #BasedOnATrueStory #MARRorwhat

Canford Classics

In August 2017 we held our fourth Classic Porsche Pull-In. More than 120 Porsches and over 200 guests came to the Old Hay Barn. We celebrated 10 years of Canford Classics this year so it was a fitting celebration. Here's the official video, can you spot your car?

Check out the first video released of an on going series by Eventuri, taking an in depth look at an intake system, identifying problem areas in the standard intake, showing how the Eventuri system alleviates those issues, and before/after dyno runs done on the same day.

I really enjoy taking a more technical look at the thought process behind things, so it's great to be able to produce these and show off just why there really isn't any competition when it comes to intake systems.

Matthew Dear Photography added 16 new photos to the album: Evolve Automotive M2 GTS.

Having followed this build from the very beginning it was now time to shoot the car for it's completed GTS transformation, and of course lightpainting with some orange streaks was the perfect way to show off the cars aggressive shape and compliment the GTS touches of orange.

Spent the last two days with Eventuri doing the final test fitting of the pre-production Audi RS3 8V / TT RS intake at Neidfaktor.

I've had the privilege to follow this build from it being picked up at the dealership, to being revealed in Germany at Essen Motor Show, and then completing it's transformation to what can only be described as an M2 GTS.

Every detail about this car is stunning, not only what has been left as BMW intended, but also in what Evolve Automotive have improved upon, cherry picking from some of the best companies in the business to create a car BMW most likely never will.

6Sixty Design is with Matthew Dear and 3 others.

The 6Sixty Emblem i8 combination is more than just aesthetically pleasing.
With the man of the moment and Owner of B&B Audio Concepts Waz Khaliq wanting functi...onal and improved results, without the compromise of OEM comfort. We took our time to build a setup that exceeded his expectations.

Latest video for Resto Shack! Playing around with a real 80's VHS style for this one, real fun to change things up a bit, even if reducing image quality goes against my usual preference 🙈

Check out Paul's Mk1 small light as it goes into final body and paint! With stunning camera and editing work from Matthew Dear Photography and huge thanks to Phil Smyth Music and Entertainment for writing an awesome track for us! Go and check out both their pages and enjoy our video guys!

Working with Driven Automotive Media we put together this little promo/review of Tts performance tuning's Audi R8 that's had two superchargers bolted on to it!

Considering the money you can get a Gen1 V8 for now even with the kit cost it's not a bad way to embarrass some seriously quick modern supercars that cost 2-3x more. Plus the original R8 has already aged pretty well I think!
