Hennessy

Well this is some really exciting news on a Tuesday afternoon!

While we love ourselves a bit of super car, we really like it when these super cars push it to there limits – and if a land speed record gets broken in the process, all the better.

The Hennessey Venom GT has broken the land speed record (only just) at an incredible 270,4 mph. To put that into perspective; the Venom topped an amazing 435,16 km/h. Now that’s one fast car.  (more…)

Batmobile Tumbler

One thing is for sure. Whether you are male or female, a fan of Batman or not, all of us have thought about what it would feel like to drive the Batmobile at some point or another.

Wouldn’t it be great to evade the traffic cops and track down criminals (bad drivers) in your very own Batmobile? Yes it would. And now, you can – as one of Batman’s famous Batmobile replicas has just been put up for sale.

The Tumbler is a version of the Batmobile found in the Dark Knight trilogy. While Christian Bale (aka Batman) got to drive around in one, 5 other replicas were made around the world and at least one of them can be yours.  (more…)

Ford’s legendary Mustang is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary today. The Mustang was launched in 1964 and is one of those car’s that completely encompasses American culture and of course, the rise of Ford.

Of course, in celebrating 50 years of Mustang, some interesting anecdotes and stories are bound to come out of the woodworks. One such story, is this one; the first Mustang ever sold – to a 22-year old (female) teacher from Illinois.

Gail Wise had just finished college in 1964, and had landed herself a job as a Grade 3 teacher. To get to and from work, Gail had to buy a car and with the help of her parents, set out to their local Ford dealership. (more…)

Renault-Kwid_Concept_W

Renault’s new concept car is so modern and futuristic, you would swear that it came straight out of a sic-fi film. However, that’s not the case – this car is the result of months of imagining, re-imagining and design by Renault designers worldwide.

The Renault Kwid is the company’s new concept. It was first introduced at the 2014 New Dehli Auto Expo in India. The car itself is also inspired by India, and designed to fit into the small roads across India.

The car itself is a small SUV, with super modern designs on both the exterior and interior. Renault says they plan on putting a 1.2 liter turbocharged engine inside the Kwid – so it won’t be too slow either. (more…)

Dubai police chase criminals in a Bugatti Veyron

It’s no secret that people in Dubai really love supercars. Rich Sheik’s and powerful businessmen drive the city flat with their million dollar cars.

But it’s not only the rich people that like they’re cars fast and expensive; now the police force are also joining in on the game with the addition of their latest ‘cop car’, a Bugatti Veyron.

It seems almost insulting to call a Veyron a ‘cop car’, however, that is exactly what it is. The $1,6 million car is the perfect ride to catch criminals in a high-speed chase. I mean, it’s a Veyron… I seriously doubt that a criminal will be able to out run a car like that – unless the criminal himself is a fan of Bugatti!

The Veyron is simply an addition to the Dubai police force’s already impressive fleet of super cars. Other, ‘super cop cars’ include a Lamborghini Aventador, an Aston Martin One-77, a Mercedes SLS AMG, a Bentley Continental GT and a Ferrari FF – specifically for the female cops.

The Veyron will be fulfilling its duties as a patrol car in popular tourist spots. However, we’re pretty sure they got a Veyron to chase criminals, and not just for casual patrolling rides.

The Dubai Police also introduced their latest addition in a (epic) video. Check it out below:

Audi is currently driving a very secretive (yet thoroughly exciting) marketing campaign in anticipation of the release of their latest model.

The new model, that no one really knows about, will be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show in March. However, prior to the launch, Audi has been releasing sneaky teaser video’s that only show a glimpse of the new car.

While many expected it to be the 2015 version of the Audi TT, the second teaser video in this series proves that it’s not. The latest video shows a smaller, hatchback car. (more…)
