Porsche 918 Spyder Driven By Chris Harris
You’ve heard us babble on about the 918 Spyder having the ability to box with the McLaren and Ferrari big boys, but still don’t believe us? Well, watch the 887hp hybrid hypercar in action and hear the engineers explain why they believe their technological masterpiece of a car is the ultimate. The engine also sounds quite dramatic… We like.
Mercedes-Benz SLK 250 CDI: Does A Diesel Sports Car Really Work? – XCAR

So, you’ve heard of this crazy race which involves cars whose aerodynamic features alone are larger than the entire ‘car’ which they’re strapped to?

Farmer Burns Rubber In A Turbo Tractor
Behold, the Volvo Terror. It’s a turbocharged, tyre smoking, power sliding, field-plowing monster. As you’d imagine, it absolutely terrorizes fields, it pounds blades of greenery into the earth with an iron fist. The Terror is capable of demolishing bits of earth with its rear tyres alone, so there’s no need for any expensive plowing gizmos here. This really is an ingenious solution to an otherwise costly problem. Clever farmer!
