Mr. Wash

Do you know what is as important as having a good looking car? Having a clean, good looking car.

This is why we thought we’d introduce you to the world’s biggest car wash. At this car wash, you don’t just simply go for a wash ‘n go, you treat your petrol-run, metal friend (this is your car). Think of it as a parlour/spa for your car.

Mr. Wash, in Stuttgart, Germany, is way more than a car wash. You won’t find Frikkie and his hosepipe and Sunlight liquid at this establishment. Oh no.

The entire building is 2-stories high and cost a whopping $40 million to build! It can clean up to 400 cars per hour – yes, per HOUR. Which, if you calculate, amours to roughly 500 000 cars a year! (more…)

Purrari

Ferrari makes beautiful cars, this we know. And it is (of course) very evident that they are very proud of the beautiful cars they produce. However, they have also made it clear that they do not take well to people, albeit Ferrari owners, making a ‘mockery’ of their cars.

The Italian automaker has lashed out at famed electronic music producer, Deadmua5, after the DJ wrapped his Ferrari 458 Spider in a somewhat unusual wrap.

The Deadmau5 Ferarri, which he dubbed the ‘Purrari’ was wrapped in a Nyan Cat theme. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Nyan Cat, it is an internet meme that exploded all over the net and is seen as somewhat of a pop culture sensation. It’s basically just a pixelated cat, flying through space, leaving a trail of rainbows behind him… yes, we know that sounds ridiculous.  (more…)

Huracan

We already know that a Lamborghini Huracan is a really fast car  - and one that not may of us would want to take on in a drag race, that’s for sure.

However, what happens if you pit an all new, super fast Lamborghini Huracana against something worthy of a drag race against it; an actual, military grade fighter jet.

Well, naturally, we all know who will win in the end as the laws of physics will explain, but still, there is something super exciting and really thrilling about watching a Lamborghini Huracan take on an actual fighter jet. And this video does not disappoint! (more…)

Road accidents are no joke. Whether they involve a car or a motorcycle, anyone who has ever been in an accident know how lucky they are to be alive. One man in particular, who can really count himself lucky, is this Russian motorcyclist.

The accident was caught on video by a Russian driver’s dashboard camera.

It was published on YouTube on august 19th and appears to have a July 3oth timestamp. According to various sources, the accident seems to take place on a bridge close to the Russian city of Korolyov.

According to Mashable, they cannot confirm nor deny that the video is, in fact, authentic – but if it turns out to be true, this gentleman can thank his lucky stars and give his guardian angel a pat on the back, because what happens is nothing shy of unbelievable.

We won’t spoil it for you, so check out the video below:

This is the world’s most expensive motor home

When you think of a motor home, you can’t help but picture a 80′s style karavaan slowly making its way down to the seaside from up North. However, this motor home (or RV is you will) is nothing like the caravans you see in Hartenbos over December. It’s actually like a moving mansion.

The element Palazzo is the world’s most expensive and most luxurious motor home and has (surprisingly) just been sold to an unmanned owner in the city of lux – Dubai.

This seriously pimped out RV was sold for a whopping $3 million. But once you see what this RV holds both inside and outside you can still try and make sense of the exuberant price tag.

Developed by Marchi Mobile – an Austrian company founded by former trucking mogul Mario Marchi – this RV is the stuff dreams are made of. That is if you dream of luxury motor homes covered in actual gold.  (more…)

It seems that the level of Father’s Day gifts have gone through the roof this year!

A few weeks ago, we reported on one determined son who made a promise to his dad when he was a young boy. The promise was that when he gets older, he would give his dad the one thing he always wanted: a 1957 Chevy Bel Air.

The son spent the next two years saving for the sky blue beauty and finally, on Father’s Day this year, gave his dad the car.

Naturally, the video of the special moment went viral and had us and many people around the world in tears. And now it seems that one woman was looking to out-do the man with the Chevy Bel Air. (more…)
