Toyota Yaris GRMN - Motor O2
GAZOO RACING - Meister of Nürburgring. Toyota lost its mind and released this limited edition of a proper pocket rocket, the Yaris GRMN. 1.8 liter, supercharged madness in a tiny, rad looking livery, hatch? That's the kind of madness I love. I chose this urban spot due to the circumstances of a busy agenda and shot with a borrowed Canon 77D from a friend of mine, again, for Motor O2.
Lancia Delta Integrale Evo1
In 2016 (time flies away) I had the chance to photograph this stunning Lancia Delta Integrale for another car photography project and now, 3 years later, I decided to re-edit the whole session, by taking advantage of the skills I've been acquiring.
Peugeot 205 GTI - L'Enfant Terrible
One of the many photoshoots of the extint Photorevvin', and the one that means most for me. Nearly 2 years ago, I photographed one of the best and desired pocket rockets ever, making a great call to its badge, the Peugeot 205 GTI. Now, all I have to do is enjoy the not-so-wonderful-actually-nothing-wonderful rise of Peugeot 205's price and wait for an appealing business to fulfill my dream...
BMW M3 (E46)
It was a Saturday's afternoon and weather was so unstable I was in doubt wether this session would happen or not. But I closed my eyes, prayed a bit and moved forward to this spot. A manual BMW M3 E46 would be the star of the day...
Alfa Romeo 4C - Motor O2
The stunning Alfa Romeo 4C has returned to Motor O2 for a proper car review. This time we were at Barreiro during day, and with a white 4C, making it almost the opposite of the last time. It's never to much to ride and photograph this car...
Nissan 370Z Nismo - Motor O2
6 cylinder, 350hp, Naturally Aspirated, aerodynamics... NISMO. Amazing attributes, specially the last one. NISMO says it all when it's applied to an already special Nissan 370Z, turning it into a true race bred car. Alongside with the sound that high rev engine had, it was a delight to photograph every lines and details from an "old" and remarkable design, that Motor O2 brought to me. Now, I only hope Nissan awake and put another real NISMO in the market, soon!

They're only 60 all over the world and this one is for sale in Portugal!

And it doesn't look like it has already 10 years. At all! It's how they say, "The best or nothing".

Setúbal Especial Sprint 2017
Last saturday, July's 29th, Clube de Motorismo de Setúbal gave us one more sprint at Variante da Várzea. I was missing that great smell of burnt gas and rubber, typical of these events, so I went from Ribatejo straight to Setúbal, grabbed my girlfriend (who has a lot of patiente for this but ended the day enjoying a lot) and there we went to Variante da Várzea.
Here you can see which cars had been in Motorclássico 2017.

Estoril Experience Day - 09/2017
It was another day after a bad night's sleep, which is already usual, the anxiety of being back to an environment like Estoril's on trackday takes care of my me... This time, the trackday was divided in two days, occupying the whole weekend, which is not badly thought, creating more opportunities to drive on the track and, leading to that each category had a slight decrease of cars on track. Since I had appointments on Sunday, I only photographed on Saturday.

Hyundai i30N Performance - Motor O2
A real hothatch from... Hyundai?! Yes! Hyundai entered hard in this game without any fear and presented the i30N Performance. Not only you can have a wild side, full of pops and bangs as you can have a daily mood side, making this car a great all rounder. As for me, I fell imediately in love...

Abarth 595C Turismo - Motor O2
Well, this time I went to do a session for a Abarth 595C Turismo, red, a car we can take like the soft version of the Competizione. With 165hp, weighing about 1 ton, and having such a fun to drive chassis, there's no way to don't like this "David" in the middle of too many "Golias".
