Seoul has recently revealed their plans t make their city more ‘female friendly’ – an initiative that will see the South Korean capital fork out more than $95 million in  an effort to make the busy metropole more lush for the ladies.

The Seoul Metropolitan Government has said that the city overhaul is designed to make females feel more comfortable, feel safer and more welcome in the city. While this is all good and well, there is one certain aspect of he re-design that has gotten some fiery feminists – in fact, all females – a little hot under the collar.

Part of the overhaul will include new parking spaces for women only. These spaces will be closer to shop entrances, better lit (so possible muggers won’t come too close) and will be MUCH wider than the other parking spaces. And now queue the ‘oh hell no!’ from women all across the globe… (more…)

MUSTANG IN SPACE

Well this is one way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the famous Ford Mustang – and it’s pretty out of this world (pun intended).

A group of friends – and undoubtedly heavy Ford enthusiasts – decided to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang in a very unusual way. The group, from the Big Valley Ford Dealership in California decided that they would like to commemorate the momentous occasion by sending a 2015 Ford Mustang into space.

Ok, to be fair, it’s not a life-size 2015 ford Mustang, but rather a small replica of the famous car. However, small or not, the experiment delivered some amazing footage. (more…)

Fiat’s new ad features Godzilla

GODZILLA fiat

One wouldn’t really think of the Fiat 500 as a ‘monster’ car. In fact, it’s probably one of the smallest cars available on the market. However, the new Fiat 500L has got a little more bulk to it – enough bulk to take on Godzilla.

The ad starts off with the mother of all monsters, the infamous Godzilla, making his way through a bust up city. Apparently, he’s really hungry and apparently he has quite a taste for Fiat 500′s. As someone says in the ad: “it looks like he’s craving Italian!” Cringe.

The monster then proceeds to gobble up two Fiat 500′s. However, when he spots another Fiat 500 – not realizing it’s the all new Fiat 500L – he has a bit of trouble. (more…)

We all know that boys love their toys – and especially 7 year old boys who have just discovered the joy that is a super car. So what do you do, as a parent, to make your Lamborghini obsessed son’s birthday one he will never forget? You organize a fleet of Lambo’s, of course.

This is exactly what one father did for his son’s 7th birthday. Jacob, as described by his father, is one of Lamborghini’s youngest fans. So for his 7th birthday, he’s dad thought he would give it a shot at organizing a ride in a Lamborghini for his son.

The California native contacted the North Los Angeles Lamborghini dealership on Facebook and told them about his son’s biggest dream. Asking if there was any way they could help him  out by giving the little guy a ride, the team at Lamborghini North LA did one better. (more…)

jenga

We all know the game of Jenga. The game where you remove wooden blocks stacked on each other one by ne and hope and pray that you are not the on to cause the tower to come crashing down.

Well, imagine this game being played on a greater scale – and by greater scale we mean super large blocks being moved by huge Caterpillar machines instead of humans.

This is exactly what the company has done with their latest advertisement. Under the tagline “Designed to get it done no matter what it is”, the huge Caterpillar machines, which include an Escavator and Telehandler, play a friendly game of Jenga.

The ad is shot beautifully and it is actually really interesting to watch. You’ll be on the edge of your seat once one of the machines pulls out two blocks from the bottom row.

Check out the cool ad below:

While the first half of the video simply shows the Porsche driving smoothly, the second half is way more exciting and will definitely ensure many ‘laugh out loud’ moments. (more…)

LAMBO CRASH

Ouch. That’s about all there is to say about this rather nasty crash involving a beautiful black Lamborghini Aventador.

Luckily (or rather not if you prefer to look at Aventadors in peak condition) the moment of impact between a Lamborghini aventador and two other, uhm, lesser cars was caught on camera for the world to see.

The Aventador is seen speeding around a corner and then subsequently smashing both its left and right side into two other cars. (more…)

The new Jaguar F-type coupe is beautiful car, there’s no doubt about that. But besides being beautiful, this car is also very powerful and obviously causes a great thrill when seen in action.

This is exactly what we have got for you on this lovely Friday – a video of the Jaguar F-type coupe in action!

And, of course, the car is reviewed by none other than our favourite petrol head, Chris Harris. HArris takes the Jag – which produced 550 horsepower by the way – around the track and gives us a little peek as to what it would feel like to drive one.

Once again, a great, entertaining and informative video by mr. Harris.
