If this was on an empty road, out in the middle of nowhere somewhere, this would be a comically bonkers thing to do—dangerous, sure, not a good idea, absolutely, but not horrible, because on an empty road, no other people are in real jeopardy. But to do a burnout on a trailer on a busy highway, that’s no longer fun…
You’d think that a car with an okay amount of horsepower for its size, a super short wheelbase and rear-drive would be able to hoon, and hoon quite easily. Why is this not the case with the EV Smart?
In 1949, I suspect that everyone in Los Angeles was making the exact same tired jokes about Hell freezing over, because between January 10-11, 1949, Los Angeles received just over 4 inches of snow, which, to LA, may as well have been a blizzard. While most drivers were likely paralyzed with fear, a few intrepid hoons…
If nothing else, this video proves that pretty much any car looks pretty good mid-drift. I’ve heard the hard plastic wheels make the Cozy Coupe an ideal drift car, and pros will sometimes have 30 or more dads tethered on bicycles.
I just wanted to introduce you to my new hero here. The more you think about what happened here the better/more alarming it gets.
We've known about the Saudi craze of "Hagwalah" for a while now, but this new fad of "sidewalk skiing" may take the cake for one of the stupidest things we've ever seen. It basically involves getting the car on two wheels, getting out, and going for a ride.
Say you're out for some fun in your E46 BMW M3 and someone takes off in it. You'd freak out right? You'd want to kick that guy's ass!
There's a saying, coined by Daniel Tosh, that goes roughly thus: Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy a jetski, and you don't see sad people on jetskis. Well, my friends, I'm here to tell you that the same holds true for snowmobiles. They are awesome.
When I first noticed that there was a video of someone hooning an RV, I had two questions: 1) Where would anyone do such a thing? and 2) Why wasn't I there?
How do you make a smoky burnout display even better? In this case it appears the answer is even more smoke provided by the OM603 straight six diesel underneath the hood of this ratty Mercedes 190D burnout machine.
I was about to go on the most reckless drive of my life — cutting lanes, driving on the wrong side of the road, flying past pedestrians at over 100 miles an hour. There would be police cheering me on. Something is happening in New Jersey.
Several times a year, bikers gather at the Suck Bang Blow bar just outside Myrtle Beach, S.C. to drink, schmooze, and hoon the crap out of their Harleys. But Horry County officials have had enough, and banned the club's periodic group burnouts after more than 15 years of celebratory Harley noise and tire smoke.
If this vintage commercial is to be believed while Americans were using the 1982 Toyota Corolla to commute to work our friends down under were using the compact cars to hoon and party in the outback.
Police in Methuen, Ma are on the hunt for a car thief who hooned it up in their parking lot on two different occasions while out joyriding in a stolen Porsche.
Or, as you read the title: Blah Blah Blah Breasts Blah Blah Blah 1,300-HP Corvette. Yes, some schmuck has made another addition to the classy boobs-go-for-a-ride formula, only this time things aren't quite as enhanced as they were before. UPDATE! They took down the video and it was edited to remove the nipples.…
It's no secret they take their burnouts pretty seriously down under and the results are usually pretty amazing to watch. Luckily for us this burnout is no exception—it has all the smoke and supercharger whine you could hope for, plus the unexpected but welcome addition of fire.
It's called hagwalah and nine times out of ten you've seen it in grainy cell phone video shot from the side of a Saudi highway, but now it's the high-def backdrop of M.I.A.'s surprisingly car-centric video, shot in the Middle East.
It might seem hard to believe a 25 year old Ford is still faster than a Ferrari Enzo, but this is far from a run of the mill mid 80s Ford. For those unfamiliar with the RS200 Evolution, this ultra rare four wheel drive 600hp monster was originally built by Ford Motorsports in England for competition in the legendarily…
The roundabout is a particularly awful traffic solution in the age of cars and stoplights. It's as if a bunch of city planners were sitting around wondering if perhaps people wouldn't drive better if they were dizzy. Alas, we wonder if the whole thing wasn't the ingenious invention of the owner of a RWD car.
Guns-and-drifting is all the rage amongst the youths everywhere — and especially in the Arab world. Check out these Libyan rebels celebrating the news of Muammar Gaddafi's timely end with this tribute to insane Saudi drifting.
