Dubbed the ‘sports car of the future’, the BMW i8 has been making a lot of waves lately since it was officially unveiled at the New York Auto Show a while back. So, naturally, the ‘man about cars’, Mr. Chris Harris himself, had to test drive the i8 and see what all the fuss is about.
Chris, who obviously lives in the UK, had specially flown to Los Angeles to take the i8 for a spin. While, admittedly he was quite annoyed with the traveling, his review of the i8 was rather good. (more…)
While we have known about the BMW i8 for months now – the much anticipated Hybrid electric luxury car has finally made it’s official debut at last week’s New York Auto Show.
The i8, which serves as both an electric and hybrid car, is definitely one to draw attention. However, besides it’s sleek modern and somewhat futuristic looks, the car is actually a celebration of what modern, green technology can bring to the auto industry.
The car features an astonishing 362 horsepower. That’s quite the powerful car. It combines a 3 cylinder petrol engine with an addition electric engine which obviously attributes to the car’s high horsepower. (more…)
We all know that boys love their toys – and especially 7 year old boys who have just discovered the joy that is a super car. So what do you do, as a parent, to make your Lamborghini obsessed son’s birthday one he will never forget? You organize a fleet of Lambo’s, of course.
This is exactly what one father did for his son’s 7th birthday. Jacob, as described by his father, is one of Lamborghini’s youngest fans. So for his 7th birthday, he’s dad thought he would give it a shot at organizing a ride in a Lamborghini for his son.
The California native contacted the North Los Angeles Lamborghini dealership on Facebook and told them about his son’s biggest dream. Asking if there was any way they could help him out by giving the little guy a ride, the team at Lamborghini North LA did one better. (more…)
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.
Check out the cool ad below:
The Goodwood Saywell International Charity Track day is an annual event that brings together some of the world’s met famous and celebrated super cars, puts them all on a track, and make some money for charity. So you can imagine that it is, without a doubt, any petrol head’s dream event.
This year, the parade took place on March 22nd. And, just as it has done in previous years, the parade definitely did not disappoint!
The event is almost like a fun run or marathon for charity – except, instead of superstar athletes taking part, its superstar super cars that take to the track. (more…)
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…)
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…)
