Ah, a classic drag race – there really is few things in life that give us the thrill of watching two, powerful sports cars go head to head in a bid to see who is the most powerful and of course, fastest. However, what happens if you pit a more traditional sports car against it’s modern counterpart?
Well this is what we’re super excited to find out.
YouTube channel, The Fast Lane Car, recently pitted a classic, 2015 Chevy Corvette Stingray against the all new, futuristic BMW i8 – and of course, as we all know, the BMW i8 is a hybrid electric car. So will it have the potential to destroy a full on, classic sports car such as the Stingray? (more…)
Ferrari never ceases to amaze us. There is just something about this legendary automaker that makes us go weak at the knees – and we’re pretty sure they know that they have this effect on a lot of people.
The latest creation to come out of the Ferrari garage is undoubtedly one of their finest. In terms of design, looks and power, the Ferrari 458 Special A is absolutely gorgeous – and finally t has been revealed in all it’s Italian glory.
After leaked images of the car appeared all over the internet this past week, Ferrari decided that it was time the world was officially introduced to their new baby (well, really they didn’t have a choice after it spread like wildfire through the internet).
So, ladies and gentlemen, here it is, the all new Ferrari 458 Speciale A. (more…)
The other day we reported on Lexus’ latest collaboration with music producer/singer/automotive designer Will.I.Am in ann effort to promote their new NX crossover.
As you may know, Will.I.Am has tried his hand at designing custom cars in the past – some of which resulted in extremely strange and rather weird hybrid versions of well know cars.
However, as Lexus promoted their new NX, so did Will.i.Am and, amidst wild speculation as to what the end result would look like, we are surprised to say that the “extremely stylised version’ of the NX crossover is actually not bad at all. In fact, we’ll go as far as to say that this car has that ‘boom-boom pow’.
Revealed last night at Paris Fashion Week, Will.i.Am looked rather satisfied with his creation as he revealed it to handful of cheering fans. (more…)
There is absolutely no doubt about the fact that 3D printing is taking over the world. It is one of the most revolutionary inventions of our time and has captured the attention and imagination of many across the globe.
Just the thought of physically and quickly being able to print a three dimensional object in the comfort of your home (if you so wish) is rather intriguing.
That’s why so many people have started experimenting with 3D printing and seeing how far they can push the boundaries with this new technology. One such company that wasn’t afraid of taking things to the next level, is a company called Local Motors. In fact, they dreamt so big, that actually 3D printed a car. For reals.
I mean, we have seen some pretty out there thing seeing printed in 3D – from prosthetic limbs to weapons and guns (that actually work) – there seems to be no end to the imagination of those capable of 3D printing.
Local Motors, however, is the first company we’ve heard of that actually decided to print a full size, drivable car. (more…)
Whether its in an action film, super hero movie or suspenseful thriller, the chances are when you watch a bog budget Hollywood movie, you’ll see some kind of stunts being performed. And when these stunts involve cars, we get really excited.
Stuntmen and more specifically stunt drivers have the scariest, most dangerous and no doubt most exhilarating fun jobs in Hollywood – or at least we think so.
They get to drive around (usually very fast) in super cool cars and then crash the, flip them or spin them in manoeuvres we can only dream of. (more…)
In an effort to promote their all new, upcoming crossover – the NX – Lexus has teamed up with on of the planet’s quirkiest personalities to design a one-off, custom version of the car. All in the hopes of capturing the attention of the world.
Lexus has enlisted the help of music producer-turned-entrepreneur Will.i.am to design a custom NX of their new crossover model.
As the company has said themselves, the car designed by the hands of Will.i.am, will be an “extremely stylised version”of the actual model – so don’t get a fright when you see it for the first time and think that Lexus has turned a new (quirky) leaf.
Will.i.am is also no stranger to the automotive industry, or designing his own, uhm, different cars. (more…)
We know there are some pretty expensive cars in the world. If you are dreaming of owning a Aventador, Bugatti or Rolls Royce Ghost – you know you’ll have to pay a pretty penny for one of those! However, the most expensive car in the world is not a modern, tech-loaded speed racer. No. In fact, it’s more than 50 years old.
Apparently, this 1962, Ferrari 250 GTO is the most expensive car in the world.
The Ferrari 250 GTO is, of course, an absolute classic. It’s famed throughout the auto world and will forever be remembered as one of the best and most impressive cars of its generation. It also helps that only 36 of these 250 GTO’s were ever made.
Most recently, another Ferrari 250 GTO sold at an auction for a record breaking $38.1 million. However, tis specific Ferrari 250 GTO – with serial number 3647GT – is valued at a whopping $60 million! (more…)
