Published by on Aug 27th, 2014, No Comments

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…)

DP-100

Concept cars are great. Mostly because it is, after all, only a concept and you can really let your imagination go. Not only are concept cars fun to design by designers themselves, but its also great for us car fanatics to see what people come up with and what we can possibly see in the near future.

This latest Aston Martin concept is like something out of a sci-fi film – and it’s awesome.

Called the DP-100, Aston Martin actually teamed up with video game development studio, Polyphony Digital, to come up weigh the idea. And why a video game developer? Well, because the car will actually make its debut in a video game.

Say hello to the latest addition to Gran Turismo 6′s line up! (more…)

Motorcyclist

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:

Maybach

We know that Mercedes-Benz has some big plans with the all new S-Class Maybach. And if this spy video turns out to be the first look at the supposed Maybach, then we are certainly in for a treat when the ultra luxe car finally makes its debut.

The S-Class is expanding in quite a big way. Up until now, there were only two different engine options when it came to the S-Class, but now, Mercedes is introducing an array of new model lines.

The German automaker is adding a new S-Class Coupe to it’s line up as well. This is in addition to the sedan, of course. And soon, the S-Class Coupe will be available in a convertible version too – and we’re sure that will be a big hit with Mercedes fans worldwide. (more…)

Electric supercar, Renovo Coupe, revealed for first time

Published by on Aug 18th, 2014, No Comments

Renovo Coupe

Tesla, watch out. There is a new electric kid on the block and it’s all sparkly and new and pretty impressive!

Meet the all new Renovo Coupe – an electric super car that looks to tackle Tesla and their Model S head on. The car was designed by Renovo, and don’t feel bad if you haven’t heard of them before.

Renovo is a startup based in the home of all fancy startups, Silicon Valley. Here, the company designed and developed the good-looking Renovo Coupe in secret for nearly 4 years. And finally, the Tesla rival has been unveiled to the public.

First off, the car really is beautiful. WHile it’s electric and certainly very modern, it has a classic, alluring vintage/retro look that definitely makes it stand out in the crowd. Not that said ‘crowd’ is very big – it’s pretty much only the Tesla Model S and the Renovo in it’s class. Although, things might start to look different once Tesla releases their planned electric coupe. (more…)

VW Golf vs BMW M235i – Chris Harris on Cars

Published by on Aug 15th, 2014, No Comments

Golf R

Chris Harris is back and we for one are really excited to see him testing and pitting cars against each other again.

This time around Chris takes on more of a ‘normal’ car. And when we say normal, we mean non-supercar. While we love watching Lamborghinis and Ferraris in action (although we get insanely jealous) it’s also great to see Chris review everyday cars.

With his unique reviewing style, Chris pits the Volkswagen Golf R against the BMW M235i.

Which car do you think will come out on top? Check out the video below:

Audi S3 Saloon vs Subaru WRX STi

Auto express

Pitting two performance cars together is always fun. And while it might sound like an odd match-up between the Audi S3 Saloon and the Subaru WRX STi, these two cars have more in common than you might think and thus makes it the perfect battle.

RIght off the back, we won’t judge you if you believe the Audi will fair better in this competition. After all, the Audi is more expensive at 33,245 pounds and has the more swanky, luxury interior. Also, Audi has somewhat of a reputation as an upmarket performance car, so naturally many us will feel that the Audi has a step up on the Subaru. (more…)

2018 Rolls Royce Phantom [Spy Shots]

 RR

Whenever we hear the words Rolls Royce and spy shot in the same sentence, get excited. And if said spy shots happen to be of the long overdue, heavily anticipated new Phantom, all the better.

Motor Authority has gotten their hands on some pretty special spy shots of the 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom – and by the looks of things, the new model will be very bit as perfect as the current model.

One has to keep in mind that the current Phantom model has been on the market since 2004 – that’s 10 years ago. So when we say the Phantom is long overdue for an upgrade, we mean (really) long overdue. Not that there is anything wrong with the current model (it still makes our heart skip a beat) but a lot has happened in the past 10 years, especially technology wise.

This test model was spotted outside a BMW test centre in Germany, and, as we can gather, Rolls Royce has started with their first public road tests with the new Phantom. (more…)
