The city of Jilin in northeast China was pretty clear about announcing that it was starting construction on a new road last week. It seems like everybody got the message, except for one particular Audi driver.
Remember the epic rescue of a Toyota 4Runner dangling off the side of an Ausin parking garage? Driver William O’Connor recounted his experience of hanging by mere cables and having to jump out of the precariously-hanging vehicle to the Austin American-Statesman, and absolutely none of it sounds like fun.
You may quite enjoy a number of different channels of YouTube programming. No need. All that you must watch is this little show of two dudes messing with a very realistic (surrealistic?), somewhat glitchy graphics engine. Welcome to Car Boys.
Never a dull moment in Austin, Texas.
The 2016 Ford Focus RS has a “Drift Mode” feature that sends more power to the back wheels and softens the dampers so you can more easily catch the slide. The results, however, are not guaranteed, as you can see in this video.
This was down in Brazil, on a street that had gotten covered by a tree dropping jamelão fruit onto the roadway. A news team showed up to record all the cars crashing there because, man, like, every single car crashes.
The new Tesla P100D can zipwhooshkapow to 60 miles an hour in just 2.5 seconds. That’s a staggering 0.5 seconds faster than the pitiful old P90D, which is reason enough to buy the new car. But is there another reason? Could the P100D be saving you money?
Forget every Michael Bay or Fast and Furious whatever you’ve ever seen. This Kollywood scene from last year is more over-the-top amazing than any of them.
Have you ever called a pigeon a “dickhead” and really meant it? If you haven’t it’s a remarkable thing to see happen. Somewhere in the UK, there was a pigeon who’d rather walk, and decided to take up the whole goddamn road. That pigeon really is a dickhead.
Pass some of that over here, fellow Millennials.
Our friends at Road & Track managed to get behind the wheel of a prototype Elio 3-Wheeler, which, I admit made me a little jealous. I’m quite curious about that car. My jealousy rapidly changed into sympathetic cringing when, right during their Facebook livestream, one of the Elio’s fenders fell off.
I don’t know who put this together, but it’s genius.
That, as they say, has not gone well.
Today we celebrate a brave alloy for breaking free from a life—if you can call it that—imprisoned on a stanced Saab.
Be careful out there.
Can you blame anyone for not wanting to race in this?
Sometimes, you really shouldn’t meet your heroes. That’s doubly true when your heroes happen to be cars.
Last week we saw The Bloodmasters’ John Wagner try (and fail) to drift his Nissan 240SX with what looks like a yoke stolen from an arcade. Some practice later, he got it right.
A couple of comedians left this Nissan Leaf on a Los Angeles street during the weekly two-hour period reserved for street sweeping. And then they narrated a 40 minute live stake-out waiting to see how long it’d take to get a parking ticket, which an astounding 13,000 people sat tuned in for.
The internet is full of trolls, idiots and people hocking old cars. Sometimes they all come together and hilarity ensues.
