    Spectacular Indy 500 Indianapolis crash (VIDEO)

    Indy-500

    Indy 500 driver Helio Castroneves found himself upside down and airborne after losing control of his race car at Indianapolis Motor Speedway during practice.  

    It really is quite amazing how safe top-tier open-wheel motorsport is these days. Back in the sixties, seventies and eighties motorsport was one of the most dangerous sports in the world and drivers were constantly being killed in massive accidents – as James Hunt once said of his Hesketh F1 car, ‘to all intensive purposes this thing’s a bomb on wheels’. It was incredibly dangerous – sure they had roll-over protection so they didn’t span their necks should things go south, but there was highly flammable fuel sloshing around either side of the cockpit and the chassises were no where near as strong as the carbon fibre ones we have today.

    To see just how safe a current Indy car is take a look at the video below. Helio Castroneves lost control of his racer on the banking at Indianapolis during practice and the rear of the car slammed into the wall at what was probably around 180mph, the car spun backwards but what happened next was really rather spectacular. The car took off and became airborne and flew around 30 meters down the track backwards. Eventually the car hit the track and righted itself, but the lack of damage to the car and its driver are truly remarkable. The front and rear wings were torn off during the impact and one of the front wheels snapped off, but otherwise it looks to be in decent shape. And Helio Castroneves walked away with nothing but a slightly hurt ego we suspect. Despite the incident, he returned to the track later in the practice session and the fifteenth fastest lap time! Amazing.

    Ballsy LaFerrari owner laps Spa in the rain (VIDEO)

    LaFerrari

    Ballsy Ferrari LaFerrari owner man handles 960hp rear-wheel drive monster wearing worn semi-slicks around a wet Spa race track.

    Supercar owners often annoy me. Here’s why; a lot of the time supercars like Ferraris, Lamborghinis and McLarens are driven by posers around congested cities where you can’t exceed 20mph. These are crazy fast performance cars designed to do well over 200mph, lap race tracks and demolish twisting country roads not sit in traffic on the way to a over-priced cafe that only serves soy-free, wheat-free gypsy nonsense. It’s total nonsense. Instead of lapping the race tracks of the world they’re lapping busy streets revving their engines unnecessarily in neutral to get attention.

    And then there’s the problem of driver skill not being as fat as their check book…

    However, there are people out there who drive their super fast, super expensive cars properly. The video below shows a bloke in his LaFerrari lapping on of the scariest, fastest and – at the time – wettest tracks on the Formula 1 calendar – Spa in Belgium. Clarkson drove a McLaren P1 in the rain at Spa back when he was still a Top Gear presenter and claimed in typical Clarkson fashion that some pooh may have come out. And that was on normal road tyres designed to be used in the wet.

    This chap in his 960hp LaFerrari decided it would be fun to hit the soaked track on a set of worn Pirelli P Zero Corsas – which are pretty much a road-legal semi-slick.

    We won’t give the full plot away, but he didn’t crash, made all other cars on track look they were driving in slow motion, and gave many dabs off opposite lock to keep control of the LaFerrari – even through the infamous fast Eau Rouge corner.

    Check out the awesome video below.

    Clarkson says he will be sacked from Top Gear (VIDEO)

    Jeremy Clarkson

    At a recent charity event, Jeremy Clarkson claimed he would be sacked by the BBC from his position on Top Gear.

    Video footage has emerged of Clarkson making a speech at a recent charity event in the U.K, where he claimed he believed the BBC would sack him following the recent ‘fracas’ with a producer.

    It’s been reported Clarkson punched the producer after he became angry over the lack of catering at a shoot location.

    At the charity event Clarkson said, “I didn’t foresee my sacking but I would like to do one last lap. So I’ll go down to Surrey and I’ll do one last lap of that track before the f**king bastards sack me.”

    “I’ll be a bit tearful when I do it, but f**k it, let’s do it,” he said.

    Clarkson then proposed the idea of auctioning off a passenger ride with him as he completed his final lap of the track, which is believed to have raised £100,000 for charity.

    “I’ll drive somebody around in whatever I can get hold of. I’m sacked so it’s probably an Austin Maestro. So who knows? But anyway it will be my last ever lap of the Top Gear track,” said Clarkson.

    The outcome of the investigation into the Clarkson fracas scandal is expected to be heard next week.

    Top Gear will not air this Sunday. You can check out the clip below.

    Sebastian Vettel drives Ferrari FXX K supercar (VIDEO)

    2015 Ferrari FXX K

    Four-time Formula 1 world champion and Ferrari driver, Sebastian Vettel, hits the track in Ferrari’s new track-only LaFerrari based FXX K racer. 

    One of the perks of being a Ferrari Formula 1 driver is the company car you get to drive around in. While driving for Infiniti Redbull racing between 2010 and 2014 where Vettel secured four world championship titles, he had a choice of Infiniti vehicles and flavoured energy drinks to take home of an evening, now though at Ferrari, the German driver can pick from a selection of the world’s best supercars.

    The promotional work isn’t too bad either. At is old team Vettel had to give a smile while sipping from a can of Redbull that probably isn’t ideal for an F1 ace’s diet, and he was also Infiniti’s ‘director of performance’ – whatever that means. This year, however, the Ferrari execs have much simpler public relations plans for Vettel – hop in our fastest and most powerful track-day weapon and spank it around our Fiorano test track for a few laps, and smile for the camera if you wouldn’t mind…

    The video below shows the four-time world champ getting stuck in behind the wheel of Ferrari’s ferocious 1036hp LaFerrari-based hybrid rocket ship. It’s a super-exclusive track-only machine that Ferrari won’t actually even let you bring home. It’s kept at Ferrari’s HQ, probably in a maximum security shed somewhere, and will be delivered to your desired racing circuit whenever you feel the urge to wreck some slick tyres and burn a few gallons of race fuel. This is Ferrari’s most mental creation to date.

    Check out the video.

    Full length Furious 7 movie trailer launched (VIDEO)

    Furious 7 trailer

    New trailer for seventh instalment in the Fast and Furious franchise, Furious 7, show’s Paul Walker’s last scenes.

    As it turns out, the Furious 7 trailer shown during the Superbowl earlier this week was just a teaser for this latest three minute long theatrical trailer which is jam packed with crazy physics-defying stunts, angry cars, many explosions and intense one-liners.

    The cast of the seventh installment in the Fast and Furious movie franchise includes all the usual suspects including Vin Diesel as ‘Dom’ and the late Paul Walker as ‘Brian’, while The Rock returns and British action hero Jason Stratham stars as the villain of the movie playing the character ‘Ian Shaw’ who is the brother of ‘Owen Shaw’ who was killed in Fast and Furious 6 by Dom and The Rock’s character.

    From what we can tell, the movie will kick off from where Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift ended, as it’s Stratham’s character who is responsible for the death of Han – incase you’ve forgotten his mint Mazda RX-7 drift car was tee-boned in Tokyo Drift while being chased by the Japanese mafia.

    Despite the connection with Tokyo Drift, the latest movie is expected to use Abu Dhabi as its main film location which will play host to a number of physics-bending action scenes, including one where Dom crashes a supercar through one sky scraper and into another… Watch the trailer and you’ll get what I mean.

    Furious 7 Superbowl trailer (VIDEO)

    Furious 7

    New Furious 7 movie trailer drops at the Superbowl ahead of the movie’s launch on April 3. 

    It’s been a while since we’ve talked about the upcoming Furious 7 movie, but the release of an awesome new trailer at this week’s Superbowl seems like a good enough reason. Set to premier on April 3, the new movie takes off where Fast 6 left off and ties in the Tokyo Drift film which, until this newest addition to the franchise was announced, has seemed like a the weird child in the family that didn’t really belong. It’s taken twelve years, but soon we will actually learn what the point of Tokyo Drift was – apart from a kickass movie with lots of tasty drift cars.

    From this latest trailer it looks like much of the explode-y action scenes will take part in Abu Dhabi, as there’s a handful of exotic Arab-plated supercars in the trailer including a McLaren 12C, Ferrari 458 and Bugatti Veyron. There’s also one other supercar in the video that you’ve probably never heard of before. It’s extremely rare, crazy expensive and built in Dubai. Called the Lykan Hypersport, it costs a whopping $3.4 million and boasts a 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat six engine from Porsche tuner RUF – who are they? They’re a reputable German company that builds the wildest, fastest and most extreme Porsches. And the car (supposedly) gets crashed through two sky scrapers – I think we can presume some CGI was used.

    Check out the new trailer.

    Ken Block drifts new Ford Focus RS (VIDEO)

    Internet sensation and pro drifter, Ken Block, drives the new Ford Focus RS the only way he knows how in new viral video.

    There has been hype around the new Ford Focus RS pretty much since the old model disappeared in 2009. And yesterday it almost broke the Internet Kim Kardashian style when it was revealed in Cologne Germany. The new RS is an all-wheel drive turbocharged rocket ship with over 316hp a manual gearbox and clever torque vectoring system which Ford claims allows the Focus to perform controlled drifts. What better way to test that theory than to get the Drift King himself, Ken Block – who also happens to be sponsored by the Blue Oval –, to take the car for a spin (literally) around the German Ford factory.

    In the video below Ken Block drives a prototype version of the new Focus RS, which is essentially an old ST with all the new RS bits bolted on – it’s a bit of a snotter parts bin special but drives exactly like the car you’ll soon be able to buy from your local dealership. The video also gives us our first proper listen to the new car’s 2.3-litre Ecoboost four-cylinder turbo engine, which despite being somewhat less exotic than the old five-cylinder mill (it’s similar to the Mustang’s engine), still sounds decidedly sporting. There’s plenty of whoosh from the turbo and some nice farts from the exhaust system that give should give the RS a tuner car feel. Anyway, enough chatter. Watch the video.

    An evening with Top Gear – series 22 preview (VIDEO)

    An evening with Top Gear

    Missed the An Evening with Top Gear series 22 preview with Clarkson, Hammond and May? Fear not, we have the full video here.

    Top Gear are really sprucing up their new series, which will begin this Sunday. There have been several trailers, including that hilarious Lego video, and a couple of days ago the three hosts got together with a slightly annoying talk show host to banter, answer questions from fans and discuss the upcoming series. The whole thing went for nearly an hour and was live streamed across the world on Youtube. Problem is, some countries weren’t allowed to see it live, or due to time zone science it was shown at some ridiculous hour of the morning.

    However, the whole video has since been uploaded to the Top Gear Youtube channel so anyone with access to the Internet can see what unfolded at the Evening with Top Gear show and get a glimpse at some of the films that will be part of the show’s 22nd series and Hammond stranded on a freezing cold Canadian mountain….

    Lamborghini Huracan crashes at 200mph (VIDEO)

    Lamborghini Huracan crash

    Lamborghini Huracan supercar driver demonstrates why it’s not a good idea to do big speed on the public road in chilling viral crash video. 

    They say the only place where you can really safely stretch the legs of a high horsepower supercar is at a race track, drag strip or runway should you have the funds to hire an airport for the day… Yes, technically you could visit a country that doesn’t have speed limits on certain roads like Germany or Italy, but it’s still pretty sketchy doing over 200mph on a road shared with other cars, trucks and people. At 200mph the closing speed between you and a car that might want to pop out to the outside lane to overtake the dawdler doing 60mph is still a staggering 140mph. You’re almost covering 100 meters every second, the speed is incredible and most roads and drivers were not designed to deal with cars travelling at such a vast rate of knots.

    The video below is proof that even in a fancy new Lamborghini Huracan supercar with all-wheel drive, a double-clutch gearbox and carbon fibre chassis that happily power past 200mph, things can and do go wrong. The chilling video below shows the moments before the bright green Lambo was turned into a pile of metallic mush as its pilot pushed the car up to 330km/h (205mph) on Hungary’s M7 highway. The video ends when the car seems to strike some quite severe bumps in the road which cause it to lose grip and collide with some metal before the video ends and the aftermath images commence.

    Fortunately there were no fatalities in the accident, apart from the Huracan which was a total write off, though it’s believed the person filming from the passenger seat suffered serious injuries.

    Lesson: stay safe out there. You can check out the full video below.

    Hilarious viral Taylor Swift Police dashcam confessional (VIDEO)

    Taylor Swift viral video

    Dover police officer becomes an Internet sensation after laugh-out-loud funny dash cam Taylor Swift viral video was posted on Youtube.

    We’ve all done it before. Having a jolly good day when your favorite song comes on the radio to brighten your day ever further and you can’t help but mouth the lyrics and have a bit of a dance… while driving. Eminem usually gets me in the gangster driving pose with one hand resting casually on the wheel while I nod along with the beat and pretend I know the lyrics. Personally, the same can’t be said for Taylor Swift’s anthems of break ups and falling over but getting up again. I generally try to avoid the girl as much as possible, and switch stations whenever her lyrics start to play – not because I think I’m too manly to listen to her music, but because I know her words will be stuck in my mind all day.

    Anyway, we’ve gotten slightly off topic here. The point is this, a police man who was most likely out collecting the daily donuts and hourly coffee from his local pastry institution has been caught not just singing along to Taylor Swift, but dancing like it’s 1999. And it wasn’t just his driver-facing dashcam that caught him busting a move either, because several times during the video he nods, waves and winks at other motorists and pedestrians. It’s brilliant, but one does have to wonder if it’s actually real or not… We’ll let you decide for yourself. Check out the viral Taylor Swift video below.

    New Ford GT supercar startup and revs (VIDEO)

    New Ford GT supercar

    Listen to the new Ford GT supercar startup and rev at the 2015 Detroit motor show.

    Ford wowed crowds at the 2015 Detroit motor show when it unveiled its new Ford GT supercar – a mid-engine successor to the 2005 Ford GT and the GT40 Le Mans winning racecars from the late 1960s. The car features a carbon fibre intensive structure and seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox with rear wheel drive but perhaps most surprising is that the GT does not have a V8 engine. Instead, Ford is using the new halo supercar to leverage its Ecoboost engine technology, meaning the GT is fitted with a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 engine, which develops over 600hp. A similar Ecoboost motor is fitted to the new F150 Raptor, which also made its public debut in Detroit this week.

    Naturally, some people may be worried that the V6 engine won’t be able to match the character and sound of the supercharged V8 used by the old GT. But this video proves that while the new GT doesn’t sound like a bent eight, it does have it’s own unique sound that should still be appealing to enthusiasts. Not only does the turbo motor sound angry and obviously performance focused, there’s some brilliant turbo whirs and whistles to accompany the six-cylinder snarl.

    Check out the video below to hear the Ford GT come to life and rev, curtesy of Youtuber Subaruwrxfan.

    The new Top Gear season 22 trailer has landed and it’s in Lego – check out the hilarious viral video here.

    The new season of Top Gear kicks off this Sunday in the U.K, and Clarkson, Hammond and May have today revealed a quick teaser of the new series. However, it’s not the usual preview video with exotic supercars going sideways, caravans exploding and slightly fat middle-age men falling over. This time, the Top Gear series preview video was made with animated Lego characters with voiceovers by the three hosts. And, while that means we can’t tell you much about what’s coming in the new series, it is thoroughly entertaining – which is still a clue of some sort…

    Check out the hilarious video below.

    Dodge Challenger Hellcat vs fighter jet drag race (VIDEO)

    Challenger Hellcat vs Fighter jet

    America’s most powerful production muscle car, the 707hp Challenger Hellcat takes on a fighter jet in an epic race down the runway.

    It’s the classic fast car versus some other kind of vehicle race, only the other vehicle isn’t a motorcycle or a boat or even a helicopter. No, the other vehicle is a deadly F16 fighter jet flown by one of the handiest pilots in the business.

    The Challenger is the most powerful production muscle car in the world and its mental 6.2-litre supercharged V8 develops a staggering 707hp. SRT claim the Hellcat can hit 60mph in the low three seconds range and cover the quarter mile in a scarcely believable 10.8 seconds. This is a ten second car that you can buy from any Dodge dealership for less than $60,000 with a warranty. They say it even handles relatively well, but lets be honest, the Hellcat is all about going in a straight line fast. Really fast. Which is why the people at Road and Track magazine had a Challenger Hellcat delivered to an airport in Miami to see whether the mighty muscle car would stand a chance against the king of the skies – the F16.

    Check out the video to see which high horsepower monster comes out on top.

    Tesla Model S P85D vs Ferrari 458 drag race (VIDEO)

    Tesla Model S P85D

    Extreme new 691hp Tesla Model S P85D takes on the Ferrari 458 supercar in a drag race.

    We know what the new all-paw Tesla Model S P85D can do to a Ferrari 575 when its accelerator pedal is mashed into the carpet, but how about the newer and more powerful mid-engine 458?

    The Ferrari 458 is powered by a 570hp 4.5-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine with rear-wheel drive while the Tesla features four electric motors to deliver a whopping 691hp. Which will win? Watch the video below.

    Yes, the Italian petrol-guzzler won but the Tesla didn’t do too poorly at all. The electric all-wheel drive super sedan leaped ahead of the Ferrari instantly and stayed several car lengths ahead until the two cars were well into triple digit speeds. So unless you’re on a race track or a road without speed limits, the Tesla is the faster car.

    How does one review a car when they’re intoxicated and therefore unable to drive? Get a sober guy to pilot while you and your drunk mate conduct a highly informative, scientific and completely serious car review… Sort of.

    Naturally, the intoxicated chaps were drawn to the massive iPad-like touch-screen fitted to the Tesla Model S dashboard which can be used as a web browser and therefore can be used to view Youtube, or another kind of tube which is a bit dirtier.

    Words cannot describe how much of a hilarious shambles this car review video is, so just sit back and watch…

    Tesla Model S destroys Ferrari in street race (VIDEO)

    Tesla Model S P85D

    691hp Tesla Model S P85D embarrasses a V12 Ferrari 575 in a street race.

    What ever happened to the phrase ‘there’s no replacement for displacement’? Well, the techno-wizards from Tesla completely rewrote the rulebook with the 416hp BMW M5-rivalling Model S P85 electric car. That game-changer is rear-drive only, but now Tesla has launched an all-wheel drive version with a thumping 691hp – the same as a Lamborghini Aventador.

    The Tesla Model S P85D will sprint to 62mph in a scarcely believable 3-ish seconds and can absolutely haul arse. And it doesn’t emit any nasty atmosphere-polluting chemicals or make any real noise. It’s also incredibly luxurious with an interior that the Back to the Future movie directors couldn’t even have imagined. It really does it all. Relentlessly quick, environmentally friendly with unbelievable tech and design from such a young company.

    The best thing though, is that it’ll worry most supercars and make mince-meat out of a 508hp V12 Ferrari 575. Here’s video evidence of that.

    Close Shave As Flying Axe Smashes Through Drivers Windshield (VIDEO)

    How’s this for a wake-up call? You’re cruising down the freeway mid-morning, when all of a sudden THERE’S AN AXE IN YOUR WINDSHIELD, STUCK IN THE DASH.

    Yes, that’s right, and this photo tells the scary story.

    MUST WATCH: This Is How You Test Wheelspin At 1,100 MPH: Video

    Fortunately for the passenger in the car, the axe—or perhaps hatchet is a more accurate descriptor—just broke through the windshield and didn’t embed itself in any human flesh.

    The scene was captured by the Massachusetts State Police, which understandably saw fit to post it to its Facebook page.

    ALSO SEE: McLaren MP4-12C Spits Crazy Flames-Grab Your Meat Products: Video

    According to the police, the hatchet came off a landscaping truck and went through the window of the car behind, which was traveling at 65 mph at the time—a perfectly legal speed, and a pace which may have saved the passenger the much more significant injury that could have occurred if the driver of the stricken car had been speeding.

    Be alert out there folks, and when that fails, do what this guy did—get lucky.

    We all used to do it when we were young and annoy the hell out of our parents. However, this full grown (or over-grown in this case) has perfected the art and is nailing car sounds in his adulthood.

    Daniel “The Human Soundmachine” Jovanov is pretty awesome and does a blind sound test on four cars, including a Red Bull F1 car, a VW Polo WRC car, Subaru WRX Group N rally car and a Lambo Gallardo

    The moment a crazed NAKED man jumps through woman’s Sunroof (VIDEO)

    naked-man-jumps-through-sunroof

    An rather odd incident happened in Dallas, Texas when a naked man ‘high on drugs’ jumped through a woman’s sunroof and started attacking her.

    The traumatised woman was punched and choked by the lunatic as she travelled the wrong way down the road, eventually crashing into a  man punched and choked the woman, as the car traveled the wrong way down the road before it crashed into a pole.

    According to the woman, “He jumped in my car and he started attacking me,” she said. “He started choking me, pulling my hair, pulling my eyes and I couldn’t do anything.”

    Luckily the cops were on the scene to arrest the man and he is yet to be charged.

    Watch the bizarre incident unfold below:

    Taxi Passenger Hits Cyclist With Door: Who’s In The Right/Wrong?

    cyclist doored in Melbourne

    A incident involving a taxi passenger who accidentally ‘doored’ a cyclist in Melbourne, Australia, has sparked a huge debate after the video went viral on youtube and a cyclist has gone viral.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6k0w570U5E

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4bLcMapzSo

    The cyclist was riding down the side of the road and tried to pass through the narrowest of gaps between the taxi and sidewalk, the passenger opened the door and unfortunately knocked the cyclist over.

    cyclist doored in Melbourne

    The enraged cyclist then demanded the passengers details, but the man, refused and walked away with friends. We don’t want to give you all the details, watch the incident below and the aftermath to make up your mind.

    Since the video, it has triggered a huge debate in the Ozzie press and social media. Carscoops report:

    In an editorial piece on The Australian titled “The Menace of Urban Cyclists“, the newspaper writes:

    “THE arrogant sense of entitlement in our inner cities is also evident in the ever-growing number of cyclists snaking their way through pedestrians on overcrowded pathways, darting between cars and clogging-up lanes on our congested roadways.”

    The opinion piece continues:

    “For too long, authorities have bowed to the demands of selfish cyclists and their lobby groups. Truth is, our cities are dominated by cars because they are sprawling. We have no equivalent of Amsterdam and should stop pretending we do”

    Bicycle Network of Victoria spokesman Garry Brennan, on the other hand, says drivers and car passengers should learn the road rules.

    “Collins St (has) a higher rate of dooring because there are so many taxis dropping passengers off … when they have not pulled up into a kerb,” he told The Herald Sun. “A passenger should not get out of a vehicle unless it is parked.”

    He added that taxi drivers have “been a problem” for cyclists in Melbourne because they have not been “properly trained” and that separated and wider bike lanes could help reduce incident like this.

    Fan-made Tesla Ad Imagines A Model S That’s Out Of This World (VIDEO)

    When you’re a kid, anything is possible. With a bit of crayon, cardboard boxes can become helmets, or even space ships. All it takes is a bit of imagination. Replace that crude packaging with something as refined a Tesla Model S and that fantasy world can kick into overdrive.

    That’s the premise behind a new ‘ad’ featuring Mace Coronel and his dad Marc, and co-starring our favorite all-electric road rocket. Although not commissioned by Tesla Motors (which did tweet about it), the minute-long spot is a great commercial for the company and its battery-powered sedan.

    Arizona Cops Shoot And Kill Unarmed Car Thief With His Hands In The Air (VIDEO)

    Caution: The video contains images that some viewers may find disturbing

    A bystander’s video of a stalemate between the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office and a suspected car thief that took place in Arizona on January 14, and which resulted in the shooting death of 40-year old Manuel Longoria, is raising some serious questions about the police department’s account of the incident.

    Longoria had previously led the cops on an almost hour-long chase in Eloy, reportedly ramming into a patrol car before police popped the tires and immobilized the allegedly stolen Toyota Corolla that he was driving.

    According to police and eyewitness accounts, Longoria exited the car but refused to give up telling the cops that he had a gun and would not be “taken alive”. The police then fired several bean bag and Taser rounds at the tow-truck driver before one deputy fired his gun twice, killing him. There was no gun found in the car, or on Longoria.

    As reported by CBS5 News, the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office issued the following statement after the incident:

    “Officers and deputies attempted to use less lethal means to take him into custody including firing several bean bag rounds and Taser deployments. The suspect refused to obey the commands and suddenly reached back into the vehicle. A deputy felt the suspect was reaching for the gun he reportedly had, so he then fired two rounds.”

    However, a video shot by an eyewitness tells a different story as, while Longoria did indeed turn around and face the car, after the cops shot the bean bag rounds, he placed his hands above his head – and that’s when the cop shot him in the back.

    Man Caught Driving With “No Hands” Banned From Driving (VIDEO)

    A UK car mechanic  has been banned from driving for being caught with his his hands behind his head while driving.

    Richard Newton was driving at 60mph using his knees to steer when cops caught him on a mobile speed camera. His (rather weak) defence was, “he was only having a stretch”  and was this was due to “bad back problems” as he avoided a possible jail sentence today.

    What did he receive for this ‘crime’? Newton was banned from the roads for 12 months and was given a 12 month community order including 100 hours of community work.

    From my perspective it looks like a very uncompromising position. Perhaps he had a lady friend helping him ‘steer’…

    What do you think folks? Does he deserve to be banned from driving for a year? Watch the video below:

    Now Ken has some competition. You might call this competitor a dude who’s pretty handy with a remote control car, we call him Micro Ken. As the name suggests, he’s just like ordinary sized Ken except much smaller.

    Like big Ken Block, Micro Ken drives a tricked out Ford Fiesta ST racing car, usually sideways, and he has an unruly hatred for tyres and eco-memtalists, kind of. He’s also moderately awesome.

    Terrorist In Chrysler 300 Is No Match For Aussie Riot Squad (VIDEO)

    Watch an Aussie Riot Take On A Terrorist In A Chrysler outside NSW Parliament.

    Carscoops.com Report:
    A disgruntled 58-year old former taxi driver sparked a tense situation during a two-hour standoff outside the Parliament House in Sydney,Australia, on Friday, when he parked his whiteChrysler 300 and threatened to blow up the building by allegedly lighting two tanks with 20-liters of petrol on the passenger seat and another 19-liters in the boot.

    Australian authorities took action and tactical operations officers smashed their way into his Chrysler apprehending the man, who has since been identified as Abdula Ganiji, with the entire scene playing on live television.

    The Sydney Morning Herald said that Ganiji was protesting over a $200 fine he received…15 years and as it turns out, he had gone on a hunger strike outside the Parliament last year for the same reason, demanding at the time that Premier Barry O’Farrell launch a “full investigation” into a dispute he had with former employer Wollongong Radio Cabs.

    Ganiji was refused bail during a court hearing on Saturday where it was revealed that police found a two-liter fruit juice container, fuel and a cigarette lighter in his car.

That continent being Africa and the country Egypt. It turns out that driving in Egypt is truly hectic, chaotic and nerve-wrecking experience that made driving in Russia look like a walk in the park.

    Car Commercial Wars! Mercedes Strike Back At Jaguar With Photo Ad (VIDEO)

    The advertising rivalry between Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar has erupted after Jaguar ate the ‘Mercedes chicken’ in their recent commercial.

    The story so far:

    Mercedes-Benz launched their ‘Intelligent Drive’ campaign with ‘that’ chicken commercial that went viral all over the world. The dancing chicken commercial amassed over 7 million views on youtube.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLwML2PagbY

    Jaguar were a tad jealous so they got their creative claws out with this hilarious commercial.

    Yes, you saw it! The Jaguar ate the chicken! Jaguar literally took a bite out of the chicken and Mercedes in that one commercial.

    Mercedes quickly responded with this viral ad on its FaceBook page with the following message:


    Jaguar is proud of their cat-like reflexes.#IntelligentDrive helps ensure they can stay that way.”

    Screen-Shot-2013-12-20-at-14.32.37.png

    It looks like its car commercial wars folks! We’re hoping Jaguar reply with a witty rebuttal and continue this creative and humorous ad war. Without a doubt this is brilliant for both brands, especially as it will strike a chord with younger audiences.

    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

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9IWiTpWeiM

    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.

    1) NEED FOR SPEED: KEN BLOCK’S GYMKHANA SIX — ULTIMATE GYMKHANA GRID COURSE

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

    Porsche 918 Spyder Driven And Drifted By Chris Harris (VIDEO)

    Chris Harris drives the super high tech Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid hypercar on track.

    Many doubted Porsche when they unveiled the 918 Spyder hybrid hypercar. On paper at least it would wade into battle against its key rivals, the McLaren P1 and the Ferrari The Ferrari, on the back foot. So Porsche raised the total power output to a whopping 887hp.

    Then there were those very loud voices claiming that doing a hybrid supercar was the wrong thing for Porsche to do. Why not just have that 608hp V8 and the carbon tub without all of the heavy batteries weighing it down? There was even controversy around whether Porsche could sell each of the 918, million-dollar hybrids that it planned to build. But then the 918 smashed the Nurburgring lap record and everyone just sort of nodded in awe.

    Now Chris Harris has driven the car and delivered his verdict. It seems the Porsche 918 Spyder is quite the car….

    Bus Passengers Heroically Join Together To Stop An Armed Robber (VIDEO)

    Watch the incredible surveillance video from a Seattle bus showing the heroic act of passengers tackling a robbery suspect who pulled a gun and robbed riders.

    One brave passenger stared death in the face by grabbing the gun that was pulled in his face, forcing him down while over passengers jumped to the rescue. Together they managed to hold him down until the police arrived and the suspect was arrested.

    If robber is convicted, he could (justly) spend more than 15 years in prison.

    This stop motion Mario Kart video is super cool and is bound to bring back childhood memories 

    Two regular guys playing Nintendo 64 get transformed into Mario and Luigi and are brought into a ‘real life’ version of the game. 

    They don’t have cars but they recreate all our favourite parts of the game; with banana peels, floating boxes, rockets and beers. Beers? Yea, we can’t remember that one but it certainly works in this one hell of a fun video. 

    Check out this crafty stop-motion below:

    Enjoy that video? Take a look at this rather extreme Mario Kart video:

    Who Needs Jump Leads? These Resourceful Soldiers Charge A Flat Car Battery With Their AK47s! (VIDEO)

    These three soldiers showed their resourcefulness when they were in need of jump cables after finding their car battery dead. The answer? Their AK-47s!

    Using the metal on their firearms, they bridged the two batteries to transfer the charge.

    A LiveLeak video identifies them as being in Iraq but we don’t know the location for sure. “The two soldiers aren’t in any danger from the guns, since there are no bullets, but holding a metal object while electricity is passing through it isn’t exactly safe,” Mihnea Radu with Auto Evolution wrote.

    Some people have even said the video is fake. What do you think? Check out the footage:

    Paul Walker Was An Everyday Hero (VIDEO)

    As we mourn Fast & Furious Star Paul Walker’s death, some amazing stories have come out about his generosity and kind soul.

    You may not know it but Paul Walker was an extremely charitable man and this heart warming story will bring a huge smile to your face today!

    Gawker.com report: 

    As stories about Paul Walker’s generosity and kind spirit flood his Facebook page in the wake of the actor’s untimely demise, one incredible story in particular stood out for many.

    Former jewelry store clerk Irene King will never forget the day Walker walked into the Santa Barbara jeweler where she worked.

    Not because it was exciting to see a celebrity in the shop – but because of what the Hollywood star did while he was there.

    It was during the holiday season of ’04, and Walker was looking around the store while a couple nearby was picking out an engagement ring.

    Kyle Upham was a soldier just back from his first tour of duty in Iraq and about to head overseas again.

    His fiancee, Kristen, spotted something “she really, really liked,” according to King – a $9,000 engagement set. “He said, ‘Honey, I can’t afford that,'” King recalled.

    That’s when Walker stepped in an quietly told the managed to “put it on my tab.”

    After he left the store, the manager called the couple back and told them the ring had been taken care of.

    King said she and the other store employees have kept their promise not to reveal the identity of the mystery benefactor, but with Walker’s passing, they thought the world would want to know.

    After King finally spilled the beans on Facebook and the story went viral, the Uphams, still happily married, came forward.

    “I noticed there was someone else in there but didn’t give it much thought, and we started looking at rings and whatnot and he kept saying, ‘Go bigger’ and I kept saying, ‘No, look at the prices,” Kristen told CBS Los Angeles, explaining why she chose a ring so clearly out of their reach.

    It was Walker’s doing.

    The couple exchanged pleasantries with the actor, and then Kyle mentioned he had just come back from Iraq.

    “I remember seeing the look in his face,” Kristen said. “He kind of transformed.”

    When they were later called back to the store to pick up their new ring, the couple asked how it was purchased, but the employees refused to say, and only responded with a silent smile.

    The Uphams say they suspected it was Walker all along, but weren’t sure – until King came forward with the other half of the story.

    If you are a fan of crazy stunts that involve cars, then you will love this one. It’s even better when their is absolutely no concern or safety limitations in place. Just a couple of guys, out in the wild, making a homemade contraption to get their SUV across a raging white water river! Awesome.

    You have to take your hats off the these guys. Most would concede defeat and accept that there is no way across but staring danger in the face, they guys get creative and get freaking brave by creating a fully functional car-carrying zip line that could bear the weight of a full size wagon. Respect!

    Crazy Norwegian Rides Bike Backwards Down a Hill at 80km/h…While DodgingTraffic! (VIDEO)

    It would take a lot of convincing and probably money for you to get any of us doing this stunt and we are pretty sure you would feel the same, but Norwegian daredevil ‘Eskil’ LOVES IT!!

    Yep, that pretty much makes him mad!

    The Norwegian rides his bicycle backwards down a road aptly titled ‘Trollstigen’ which translates to ‘Trolls’ Path in English’. It is one of the steepest, winding roads you will see which means Eskil reaches speeds of 50mph during the 2.8 mile decent.

    If this isn’t bad enough Eskil attempts this stunt while he rides his bicycle backwards and with oncoming traffic in the way! What a guy!

     

    Quite an inspiration… here’s what he says about himself on his dedicated website:

    “Eskil has spent his entire life living on the edge creating art that makes a difference. The goal is not just to leave an imprint on mind. The goal is to move boundaries, inspire and show humans all over the world that anything is possible.”

    “Eskil performs live, at TV-programs, in movies and exceptionally by promotional actions. He is also giving lectures about his journey from a little village in Norway to great international success, his unique working methods and the balance between life and death.”

    Top Viral Car Videos Of The Week – Episode 28

    Chevy Camaro Z28 Tested Against Mustang Boss 302

    In this week’s Carhoots top ‘viral’ car videos; David Coulthard and Chris Harris slowly drive around the Nurburgring, XCAR drive Ford GT cars, Walter Röhrl frightens a lady, Chevy show off a little and a man breakdances.

    Racing a Mercedes 220 Fintail Sedan at the Nürburgring with David Coulthard — /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS

    Formula One driver, David Coulthard, and avid applier of opposite lock, Chris Harris, take to the Nurburgring to race and eventually break, a very large, very heavy, and very slow Mercedes racing car. If Clarkson, Hammond and May ever retire, these two chaps need to replace them!

    Ford GT40, GT70 and GT: Five Decades of Fun – XCAR

    This video really needs no introduction; three of the greatest cars Ford has ever made. And the only reason they exist is because Ford wanted to – for want of a better phrase – piss off Enzo Ferrari.

    Walter Röhrl frightens a lady in an Audi S3

    Y’know how when you decide to drive a little bit, er, enthusiastically when there’s someone in the passenger seat and they begin to quietly whimper, then grab handles tightly before eventually shouting at you? Well, as it turns out, when you’re two-time world rally champion, Walter Röhrl, the whole shouting part just doesn’t happen.

    Russian man breakdances while refueling

    While filling your car up at the petrol station have you ever thought ‘hey, you know what, I’m going to do some breakdancing now while my Lada estate has a drink’? Us neither. But this guy has, and he’s pretty awesome!

    Chevy Camaro Z28 Tested Against Mustang Boss 302

    You know how there’s a massive rivalry between Ford and General Motors? Of course you do. Well, Chevy reckon they’re literally miles ahead of Ford’s best Mustang with the new Z28 Camaro – Mustang fan boys, you may want to look away, this is a tad embarrassing.

    A completely mad Honda S2000 review

    The name of the channel that made this video is called ‘Regular Car Reviews’. But, really, if we’re honest, these car reviews are anything but ‘regular’. In this Honda S2000 review the guy goes moderately insane discussing how the S2000 will make your girlfriend totally irrelevant. It’s hilarious! In a kind of nutty way.
