This might seem like a scene out of a Fast and Furious movie, or some kind of weird internet prank.

However, this video of a semi-truck losing control on a highway in Indianapolis, then going airborne and then subsequently exploding into a huge ball of flames, is the real deal.

Some other man and a passenger was driving peacefully (and, luckily for us, filming their drive) when suddenly the huge truck came rushing across the highway and crash-landed in a way that made it look like it was part of a movie!

Fortunately, the driver of the truck and his 7-year old son escaped the runaway truck before it went airborne and exploded and each only had a few minor scratches. They can thank their lucky stars!

Check out the video below and witness this unbelievable crash:

Maybach 62 Landaulet co-designed by AMG

If you thought that the rich can’t feel the wind blowing through their hair because they always use those luxurious limousines with a “hole” on the roof, you may want to take that back when Maybach 62 Landaule becomes the real thing. It’s still in concept stage but promises to become one of the first ultra-luxurious semi-convertible limos.

If the Sheiks won’t be impressed by the 6.0L uprated V12 engine (better than the one on Maybach 62 S) with 612 horsepower, twin superchargers and water intercooling, I guess only the fancy sliding roof over the rear compartment may do it.

If this baby goes into production it will be the most powerful limo on the market. Wish we knew a price for it to see if it’s going to be the most expensive, too. Meanwhile here is a video, but beware! Don’t fall in love!

Bugatti Veyron crash video

Here we go again with people that have more money than driving talent. Watch this Bugatti Veyron crash video to see how to put your Bugatti Veyron tail first into a fence.

After the Enzo crash and a few others it was just about time for the Veyron to meet a talentless driver and the repair shop. I wonder how much this little spin cost the owner.

Ok, it’s one thing looking at pictures of Ken Brough’s awesome hand-built ATV (or Quad-Bike) that’s powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine from a Subaru Impreza WRX STi but seeing and hearing it in live action, is something else. Once you’re finished watching the video (don’t be shy, do it more than once, we did) you can click here and read the story behind this invigorating Quad.

VIDEO Test Drive: Lamborghini Reventon

Published by on Nov 10th, 2007, 2 Comments

The Lamborghini Reventon is an astonishing piece of work. Only 20 examples are being built, each one selling for a ridiculous $1,000,000 sum. Powered by the Mucielago LP640 v12 engine, the Reventon is capable of thrusting itself from 0-60 in just 3.4 seconds, and will only stop accelerating once the speedometer shows as going 211 miles per hour.

Popular Science car reporter William R. Snyder as he took Reventon for its first test drive by the press.

Top Gear’s hosts Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond spend some time (1.41 min to be exact) in this clip talking about the $1.5 million Lamborghini Reventon (pics and details here). A little bit of British humor, but unfortunately, no thrills here boyz. To be produced in just 20 examples, the Murcielago LP640 based Reventon comes equipped with a 6.5-liter V12 unit delivering 650 Hp.
