The Porsche 918 Spyder lapped the dreaded Nurburgring in 6:57 — and that’s impressive. But that monster lap time may or may not have just been trumped courtesy of one McLaren test driver and a 903-horsepower P1.
The Ferrari LaFerrai is the pinnacle of automotive performance. It is a supercar with few, if any rivals, featuring a 6.3-liter V12 engine, in a hybrid powertrain, putting out a combined 949 horsepower. So why is there a LaFerrari with a V6 running around a test track in Italy?
Italian car manufacturing is more than just a business, it’s an art. From Lamborghini to Ferrari to Maserati (just to name a few) — the Italian cars are historically filled with beauty and passion in design. Fast forward to Pagani then, with its sharp body lines and million-dollar price tag. Their latest Huayra is a thing of perfection, and XCar got to drive it.
This past weekend was a strange one for transportation in general. In addition to news of a commuter train derailment in New York City that killed four, we also learned of a massive 65-car pileup on I-290 West in Worcester, Massachusetts early Sunday morning. The accident was caused by black ice, and sent 35 people to the hospital– two for serious injuries.
You may not have heard of him, but a man by the name of Peter Read owns two — count ‘em, two– Paganis; a Huayra and Zonda. But which one of these Italian stallions is superior? The Goodwood Road and Racing Club took these two beauties out on the track for the sexiest comparison in recent history.
What’s the best way to prep your kitchen for Thanksgiving? With a Suzuki motorcycle burnout, of course! (note: we don’t actually suggest this) Gearing up for the holiday festivities, one man decided to bring his love for motorcycles indoors, with a burnout in the middle of his kitchen.
Why is he doing a burnout in his kitchen with a Suzuki motorcycle? The world may never know. But we do know that we’re going to sit back and enjoy 29 seconds of tire smoking goodness. It is the holidays after all.
Road House is one of those ridiculous 80s movies that you have to watch every time it’s on. The 1989 film is easily the best in Swayze’s file. Sorry ladies, but Dirty Dancing and Ghost have nothing on Swazye as the Dalton, a “cooler” who is the quiet alpha dog among all bouncers and doormen. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Rob Cohen will direct the remake. Cohen directed the original Fast and the Furious, and given the presence of great cars in Road House, it might have been a wise choice. Check out these cars below to see we what we mean:
Well that’s something you don’t see every day. Just so we’re clear– there is a bear in that Lamborghini. This bruin-addled supercar has been making the rounds on the web this week, as it shut down traffic in Huntington Beach, CA. It was enough to overshadow even some of the news coming out of the LA Auto Show.
Generally speaking, Aixam makes little, drivable turds. In America, they would be akin to the Smart and the majority of their vehicles are microcars. But even the lamest carmakers have their shining moments, and for Aixam, it was the Mega Track. Part supercar, part Group B rally car, the Mega Track is truly the ultimate vehicle.
Wes Anderson has directed such films as Rushmore, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and The Royal Tenanbaums. In his latest short film, Anderson has teamed up with Prada, and actor Jason Schwartzman for this awesome short film.
It features Schwartzman as an American racecar driver, touring Italy in September of 1955. It is not stated which race it is, but one could assume it is meant to be Mille Miglia– the famous thousand mile Italian touring race.
