In this weeks Carhoots Top Videos; a bonkers new Saudi Arabian ‘sport’ called Sidewalk Skiing, Aston Martins V12 Vantage S, XCAR drive the peppy Audi A1 Quattro, a Rolls Royce drift car and some turbo snails.
1. Turbo Movie Trailer
Look out Fast and Furious! You’ve got some fierce competition, and it comes in the form of an animated film about a snail that suddenly finds himself with supernatural powers after falling into an engine. Naturally, he changes his name to Turbo and joins a crew of other racing snails. Turbo even blurs scenery with his raw speed and NOS. No, really.
2. Sidewalk Skiing – A New Saudi Arabia Sport
Ever thought about driving your car along the road on just two wheels? No? That’s odd, because according to these blokes “it’s normal”. It’s also normal to ride on the outside of the car and conduct a bit of light vehicle maintenance while it’s on two wheels, apparently.
3. Aston Martin V12 Vantage S
Incase you missed all the commotion, Aston Martin recently unveiled this stunning 573hp V12 Vantage S to celebrate the companies centenary. This video shows the beauty in action, plus, a creepy eye.
4. Audi A1 Quattro – XCAR
Good things happen when you cram a giant engine into a small car, as the Audi A1 Quattro demonstrates superbly. Just 333 of these mental little hot hatches exist in the entire world, but XCAR got their hands on one and took it for an enthusiastic drive to find out what it’s like.
5. Guy Behind ‘The Zero F*cks RX7’ Is Building A Rolls Royce Drift Car
Remember that bonkers deathtrap Mazda RX7? The guy who built it is now working on a “JDM-inspired twin turbo continent-eating luxury bruiser” Rolls Royce, with a roof exhaust – seriously – to take drifting in style. Problem is, he’s lacking funds, but hopes to raise $26,000 by the 24th of June through Kickstarter, making it “a car of the people” – brilliant!
