Look, one thing we know for sure is that Chris Harris knows a lot about cars. Also that he has had some of the most incredible opportunities in the world when it comes to driving some of the most expensive, powerful and beautiful cars in the world.

Wouldn’t it be interesting to see then, which of the legions of cars that he has driven, is his ultimate favorite? Of course it would.

Well, get ready to be surprised because it’s definitely not what you thought. Forget all the Lamborghini’s, McLaren’s and Ferrari’s… no, Chris has chosen something rather unusual as his favorite car of all time – an old Citroën 2CV. (more…)

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.

You may or may not have seen this video sometime this week. But whether you have or haven’t, there’s no harm in seeing it again…and again… and again. Because this video is pure gold.

On Monday, a South African YouTube user uploaded a video of himself following a man who is busy test driving the Porsche 911 GT-3. 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.

Look, we have seen some pretty insane drifting maneuvers before, and all of them give us a thrill and most definitely puts a smile on our face. However, we have yet to see something like this.

We stumbled upon a video aptly called ‘Size Matters 2′.

In the video, a Super Turbo Castrol Freightliner takes centre stage and does what very few freight liners in its class can do. You can expect some crazy jumps and daring drifting – we promise it will keep you glued to your screen.
