Watch this weeks top five viral car videos, including the new Need For Speed game, Nurburgring 24 hour race (in the rain!) and a Batmobile Tumbler from the Gumball 3000 supercar rally…
Usually in our weekly Carhoots top videos blog we tend to get slightly off topic, most of the time Russians riding fridges and other random Interweby nonsense sneaks in. But that’s not the case this week, because (nearly) everything is car related! So, behold, this weeks top five viral videos, including the new Need For Speed game, Nurburgring 24 hour race and Gumball 3000 supercar rally!
1. Need For Speed Rivals Teaser
Prepare your parents’ dingy basements for some proper action, video gamers – what ever that entails. Because, Gran Turismo 6 was teased last week, then Forza 5 a week later, and now today (the day after the Forza video was released), a new Need For Speed game has been teased. Coincidence? Probably (not really).
2. Toyota Supra: A Retrospective – XCAR
Here at Carhoots we love a big winged, body-kitted, and stickered up boy racer-mobile. Cars like this aren’t meant to be taken seriously, they’re meant to immerse you in a world of ten-second cars, scenery blurring NOS and cheesy phrases with Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and the fuzzy haired guy with the comb matted into his luscious locks. So you can see why we’re quite jealous of the guys from XCAR who drove this big winged, body-kitted, and stickered Toyota Supra. It even sounds like something from Fast and Furious! Lacks exhaust flames though.
3. Leh Keen’s Rain Dance – 24 Hours Nürburgring
Y’know how the Nurburgring is a bit scary? That’s why it’s known as the Green Hell. Driving it is scarier than playing chess – which is already quite frightening if you ask me – against the devil himself, in a fiery pit of doom. So as you’d imagine, driving it at night, in the pouring rain, for several hours with other mad drivers would be absolutely petrifying. This video puts you in the drivers seat for that very experience. Warning: video contains many dabs of oppo…
4. Gumball 3000 2013: Batmobile Tumbler from Team Galag
Remember when we showed you loads of really cool stuff from this years Gumball 3000 supercar rally? Well, er, we sort of glazed over one really, really, amazingly cool thing. I have literally no idea how we missed it, because really, it’s not like you can hide a Batmobile, is it? Look at it! And this is legal, probably.
5. Man Crashes Scooter Repeatedly Before Riding Into Black Hole.
OK, you might’ve already seen this video, but lets be honest, you probably cried tiers of joy the moment you saw this poor chap drive his pathetic, horrible, uncontrollable little scooter into what is probably the fiery depths of hell, or another universe.
