Please cue the delightful wordsmith of our time, Xzibit: yo dawg, I heard you like Texas, so we put the University of Texas’ mascot inside Texas on top of Texas. Because Texas.
Are you feeling down? Get up. I mean, physically up. As in, the direction away from the ground. You should jump an incredibly large vehicle into the air. Pretend your huge mud truck is a rocketship and fly! Roam free about the air! Nothing can get you down when you’re up!
The cat-righting reflex is actually a real thing, spawning the age-old saying that “a cat always lands on its feet.” What I didn’t know is that this massive Ford Explorer monster truck has the same reflex.
“Would you like for me to hold your beer?” offers a kind soul nearby. “No, I got this,” said the true, honest-to-goodness Florida Man man atop a camo-print 2013 Can-Am XMR 1000 at the bottom of the pool. This is perhaps the most majestic act of Florida Manning I’ve seen in a long time.
The SCCA Solo Nationals is autocross’s biggest show, attracting the best competitors from all over the country. John Li drove a rotary-powered MG Midget this year and admits that he may not have made it to autocross legend status just yet. Li hit a lot of cones. One cone even hit him back.
If you ever want to feel like you’ve wasted your entire life, look no further than drifter Nikolass Bertans. Bertans is only 12 and he’s already better at sliding around his car than I can ever hope to be.
Here’s a Subaru Forester that looks like it lost one ox, 420 pounds of food and three sets of clothing fording the swollen Moore River in Western Australia. The river was nearly 4 feet deep and carried the early Forester away, but this off-roader managed to save it anyway. Definitely don’t try this at home.
Everyone knows the Toyota AE86 the corner-carving drift-toy of Initial D fanboys everywhere, but it advertised a top speed of 201 kph (125 mph). That sounds reasonable, but owner banpei wanted to know if it could it still go that fast after 34 years of use, and took his the Autobahn to see.
When everything else is completely upside-down, you’ve got to find joy wherever you can. Normally, boats pull water skiers along, but in the unprecedented flooding that followed Hurricane Harvey, a lifted truck will do.
I’m used to seeing old Citroëns lean way over into turns, but here’s a “2CV Speciale” rally car that gets delightfully sideways instead. It’s a car worthy of many, many giggles at how delightfully silly it is.
No small lot can contain BJ Baldwin’s need to drive the crap out of his 800-horsepower trophy truck. I mean, we’re talking about a guy who says he wears an exterior catheter to avoid stopping to pee during a race. He’s that committed to the art of the hoon.
Porsche likes to take their Macan über-grocery getter to the track, but of course they do—they’re a fast-car company that doesn’t want to be called a sellout for building crossovers. Fortunately, owners are now trolling 911s and other like sports cars in a crossover capable of pulling 1.13 G in a corner. It is…
Last year, Bryce Menzies set a new world record for the longest off-road truck jump using a modified 900-horsepower Pro2 truck. The resulting 379.4-foot jump not only smashed the old record—it also looked ridiculously cool. Now you can poke around the footage of that jump captured with a 360-degree camera.
It was just a week ago when nature was more fun than terrifying, so let’s go back to those good times to watch one of the most epic wingsuit flights I’ve ever seen. On August 21, Marshall Miller and a group of his wingsuit-flying friends decided to jump during the solar eclipse’s totality, and the footage is…
Drag racing is known for incredible speeds, and sometimes incredible mechanical failures. This supercharger explosion from Alaska Raceway Park nearly ended very, very poorly for the cameraman filming it.
The new Honda Civic Type R is a masterpiece of track-ready hot-hatch insanity, but when it comes to simple burnouts, it’s not the best. Even with 2016 Indianapolis 500 winner and ex-Formula One driver Alexander Rossi behind the wheel, the new Civic Type R just didn’t want to smoke the meats.
The Lincoln Town Car is a great classic brougham of style and grace. Who knew this magnificent boat of a vehicle could fly so well?
The World Rally Championship’s Rallye Deutschland is a ridiculously fast blast through the German countryside, mostly on tarmac. There’s nothing more satisfying than watching these cars bounce around on landing but still somehow—somehow!—keep it under control. Behold, flat-out driving at its craziest.
Race Taxis—mega drivers who offer rides in fast cars around the Nürburgring’s intimidating Nordschleife course—are some of the most fun you can have in the right seat of a car. One lucky rider got to see the Jaguar F-Type SVR Race Taxi make 43 incredible passes in one lap. That’s right. Forty-three.
