    Top 10 Viral Car Videos Of 2013 (VIDEO)

    We’ve seen plenty of viral videos this year, a solid portion showed hopeless and drunk Russian drivers, but these are ten of our favorites.

    It seems there’s a simple recipe for making a viral car-related video… You need a nice car, maybe a Ferrari of sort, and you need to drive that car at the absolute limit. You need to terrorize its tyres, make its engine scream, then add something else that’s cool into the video – maybe a pretty girl, or an energy drink company, or a man that can do the splits between two moving trucks….

    So here they are, the hottest viral car videos of this year.

    10) Killing Tires With a Ferrari F12 — /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS

    The title says it all really. 730hp V12 Ferrari chomping through five sets of tyres all for your viewing pleasure.

    9) McLaren P1™ vs. the Nürburgring-Nordschleife


    OK, so we still don’t know the McLaren P1’s Nurburgring lap time, but this video confirms a couple of things. One, the McLaren P1 is one ridiculously fast car, and two, the bloke who’s driving has balls of steel – he’s seriously pushing it.

    8) Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle 3

    Drifting cars are cool. Drifting motorcycles are potentially even cooler.

    7) Ferrari F40 v Ferrari F50. Like You’ve Never Seen Them Before /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS

    The Ferrari F40 and F50 are two of the greatest supercars ever made, and, providing you haven’t seen this video before, you won’t have seen the two driven like this before. And if you’ve seen this, would you really not watch it again?

    6) Monster Energy: Ballistic B.J. Baldwin – #RECOIL

    Energy drink company, girl, Nissan GT-R, ballistic trophy truck thing – this video has it all.

    5) The Ferrari Enzo WRC

    It takes a lot of bravery to treat a Ferrari Enzo like it’s a paddock basher. It takes even more bravery to film yourself doing just that and upload it to the internet. We’re glad the anonymous Tax The Rich person did it though, because the resulting video is quite awesome.

    4) Nordschleife vs. Porsche 918 Spyder – 6:57

    A lot of people had their doubts about the Porsche 918 Spyder. It’s too big, it’s too heavy, it shouldn’t be a hybrid, all of the naysayers claimed. This is the video that made them all shut up.

    3) Volvo Trucks – The Epic Split feat. Van Damme

    How is this even possible?

    2) Pepsi MAX & Jeff Gordon Present: “Test Drive”

    OK, so the whole video was staged, but it’s no less awesome because of it. Plus, it’s racked up a few views and easily qualifies for being a ‘viral’ car video.


    What list of viral car videos would be complete without something from the master of viral car videos himself, Mr. Ken Block?

    The New Ford Fiesta ST 2013

    The New Ford Fiesta ST 2013
    Since the Ford Fiesta bestseller was released in 2008, the powerful minicar has swept the nation and now everyone, including us here at Carhoots, is getting excited about the new, bolder, more advanced Ford Fiesta ST due on sale in 2013.

    As expected and hoped for, the new Fiesta is still going to be one of the most thrilling and fun minicars out there. With Fords reputation for building great-handling cars, the Fiesta ST definitely steps up to the challenge. The 1.6-litre Ecoboost engine can allow the small car to reach 62mph in less than seven seconds. There is a range of other powerful yet fuel-efficient engines for both petrol and diesel available too. Moreover, a new hi-tech smart info system is installed in the car which helps you drive more efficiently. The Fiesta has been known for being a good value car; starting at £9,795 the car is still lower than its main rival VW Polo GTI. We feel the Fiesta successfully provides a harmonizing balance of performance, economy and low emissions.

    The Ford Fiesta has already been given multiple design awards, for its dynamic, striking style and sophisticated and detailed interior. The new Fiesta is even more innovative and distinctive. With a range of new features that add to the cars trademark style and enhance the Fiesta driving experience. Here we’ve decided to name a few cool hi-tech features of the car that stand out:

    No rummaging for keys, the Fiesta senses where they are and unlocks itself when you are near. The engine can then be started with the push of a button – effortless!

    The Bluetooth voice control installed can be used for almost everything, making calls, picking music to listen to…

    Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) that provides greater maneuverability and control as it automatically adjusts steering to suit the situation.

    Great for listening to music with the high quality Sony DAB audio system, and easy-to-use USB port for connectivity.

    Rear view camera and sensors to make driving and parking safer and easier.

    Safety is actually an important thing to bring up, as the Fiesta despite being such a small car is in fact an incredibly safe car! With technology such as the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) which constantly monitors the car’s conditions, it has been awarded a 5 star Euro NCAP for adult occupant safety, 4 stars for child protection and 3 stars (out of 4) for pedestrian protection.

     If you’d like to get a better look at the new Fiesta ST then we’d recommend you check out the 360 view of the car here The streamlined, “kinetic design” and shape of the car was intended by the creators to make the car seem as if it is moving even when stationary. Have a look!
