Behold This Absolutely Gorgeous Martini Racing Boat

The Martini Racing livery is one of the most renowned and drop-dead prettiest in all of motorsports. We went nuts when we first saw it on a Williams F1 car this year, but putting it on this massive offshore powerboat, which we first saw on Driven/Urbandaddy, might be even better. Because bigger. » 4/08/14 4:00pm 4/08/14 4:00pm

AMG Made A Boat To Go With Its Gran Turismo 6 Concept

To recognize the 15th anniversary of the Gran Turismo franchise, Mercedes' AMG division crafted a "virtual" car in the form of the AMG Vision Gran Turismo. It makes perfect sense, because it's a car you're only ever going to be able to drive in Gran Turismo 6. So naturally, they've made a boat to go along with it. Enter… » 2/13/14 4:20pm 2/13/14 4:20pm

This Is What It Looks Like When A Ship Completely Tears In Half

The Spanish cargo ship Luno was heading to port to load up its typical charge of fertilizer this week when it suddenly lost engine power, casting it adrift.

There's a famous scene from the movie Hot Fuzz where the characters fear that an old sea mine will detonate, so they run about 20 feet and jump over a low wall. Lucky for them, it doesn't explode, but after seeing this World War II sea mine explode on the beaches of Katwijk Aan Zee, Netherlands, I think they'd be very, … » 2/01/14 11:03am 2/01/14 11:03am

This Is What It Looks Like When You Intentionally Crash A Ship

When most ships reach the end of their lives they end up in shipbreaking facilities dotted all over the world. It's a lot easier to totally demolish a ship when it's on dry land, so when it's time to break up an old sailor, the boat is intentionally beached. The only problem is it looks terrifying. » 1/25/14 10:00am 1/25/14 10:00am

The Man Who Invented The Telephone Was A Secret Speed Freak

On February 14th, 1876, Alexander Graham Bell got his name put in the history books when he beat fellow inventor Elisha Gray to the patent office with his new creation, the telephone. And while the telephone's importance to humanity is neat, it's not exactly Bell's most adrenaline-pumping idea. For that, you need… » 1/18/14 12:30pm 1/18/14 12:30pm

Suspected Arson On Boat Can't Stop A Great Party

A regular ferry cruise from Newcastle to Amsterdam turned slightly south late last night when a guy appeared to have set fire to his own cabin. Despite six people being treated and released for smoke inhalation, though, it looks like everyone still had a great time. » 12/29/13 3:05pm 12/29/13 3:05pm
