Francois Gissy Rocket Bike

If someone were to ask you if a bicycle would beat out a Ferrari in a drag race you’d probably think the person is insane or that this is a trick question. Well, you’d be right in thinking that it is a trick question, because it is.

Recently in France, a bicycle took on a Ferrari o  a drag strip and won. The only catch is that the bicycle is rocket-powered.

At the Circuit Paul Ricard in France, one (crazy) Frenchman attempted to break his own world record of reaching an unthinkable speed on a humble bicycle, pumped up with a rocket.

Francois Gissy is definitely not a sissy. The man bravely climbed up upon his rocket-powered bicycle and jetted off on the drag strip. Incredibly, he reached a speed of an astonishing 333km/h or 207 miles per hour. Oh, and did we mention he reached this top speed in under 7 seconds? (more…)

Smart Car vs Mustang

So, generally speaking, there aren’t many vehicle enthusiasts (or everyday people, for that matter) that hold the Smart Car in a high regard. In fact, many people and critics a like think the tiny car is cute – when you’re 16.
