There isn’t anything special that you could say about a regular gas station, mostly because all of them are the same. However, the exception would have to be this one which is strategically located less than 100 meters away from the paddock of the famous Monza circuit. When the racetrack is open, this would have to be the best gas station in the world where you have the possibility to admire all sorts of supercars that come to fill their tanks.
As you can see from this video, on the day of the recording there were a lot of Ferraris waiting in line for a refill. These are the cars captured by the camera: Ferrari 599 GTO / GTB / HGTE, Ferrari 458 Italia, Ferrari 430 Scuderia, Ferrari F430 Coupe / Spider, Ferrari 360 Modena and a Ferrari California.
According to ABC News, a police officer by the name of J. Brutus was driving the police car near the intersection of NW 6th Avenue and 67th street in the state of Miami. It appears that he looked down to get a pen that had fallen from the dashboard and during this time he lost control of the car and the vehicle veered off and rode on a Florida Power and Light pole’s extension cord which as you can see, plunged the car to a 45-degree angle against the pole.
Unfortunately for Brutus he wasn’t able to get out of the patrol car and he had no other alternative but to give a phone call to the Fire Rescue to take him out of the vehicle. The good news is that he managed to walk away without being injured.
Like a commentator said on YouTube, “no way in hell it could have been closer than that”. The video you are about to see was recorded in Russia where two lucky drivers managed to escape what could have probably been a fatal accident as a tractor trailer truck that was coming from the other direction jackknifed and missed them by only a few inches.
If you look closely at the video you will notice that the lorry which was in front of our subjects starts to pull over to the side of the road in its attempt to avoid the incoming huge 18-wheeler that was out of control. The driver behind it had no idea of what was about to happen and he tried to pass that pulled over lorry that was in front of him but immediately he noticed what was about to happen. He stopped the vehicle as fast as he could and probably started saying a few prayers.
Someone certainly heard him because he managed to survive without a scratch in what could have been a horrible and probably deadly accident. We don’t know what they are saying in the video after the incident, but we’re sure that they’re extremely happy that they have made it alive.
The video you are about to see comes from Russia where a dashboard-mounted camera manages to capture a live robbery that reminds us of the popular video game Grand Theft Auto. The one-minute clip starts with a black Volvo S80 driving agonizingly slow on a modern jammed road in Moscow, Russia. Soon as the cars in front stop, the driver of the Swedish vehicle pulls it diagonally on the road and soon after that three men wearing black clothes jump instantly from the car.
Several seconds later, these three men return to the Volvo and it appears that two of them are holding some goods in their hands. Once the three are in, the driver steps on the gas pedal and hits several cars in his attempt of evading the crime scene.
PS: The date of the clip is wrong because the incident took place on December 6th this year.
It goes to show that having a lot of money doesn’t mean that you don’t have to play by the rules. The wealthy owner of this Bugatti Veyron 16.4 was probably in a hurry or he just didn’t care when he parked his car illegally. The Czech police officers did not care that the car had a Bugatti badge on it and clamped the French hypercar without any hesitations. As you’ll see, that standard boot lock is no match for the car’s huge rear tire.
The amount of money that the Veyron owner will pay for the gas on its way to the police station is probably higher than the cost of the fine, but we’re sure that the owner of the Bugatti has deep pockets.
It was only on Monday when we showed you a Ferrari 360 Spider armed with a lot of LED lights. Without further introductions, we have another one for you, a Lamborghini Murcielago whose owner probably is a Tron enthusiast. As you will see, it has LEDs just about anywhere, starting with the doors, windshield surround, engine vents, rear diffuser, etc. See for yourselves:
The video you are about to see features a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 modified by the engineers at ‘Late Model Racecraft which say that this is the fastest ZR1 in the world. We don’t know if this is 100% accurate but taking into consideration that it can do the quarter mile in only 9.68 seconds, it sure is quick. The exit speed at the end of the quarter mile is 147 mph (237 km/h)!
What you will see in the following video is a nice Ferrari 360 Spider that unfortunately has a really terrible owner. This “bright” creation features so many flashing lights that it could very well be used as a Christmas decoration. Let’s just hope that after the holidays the owner will bring the car to how it was before he “tuned” it.
Today we have a funny yet worrying video coming from Romania where apparently this 80-year-old (at least) woman is driving a Dacia Sandero. According to a local website, the woman was involved in an accident and she was heading to her car, after leaving the police station. As you can see from this video, she can barely walk, let alone drive a car. It goes to show who crazy some people are, allowing a person like this to drive a car, not thinking about the consequences.
Here is something that you don’t see every day, a four year-old girl driving a car on a large boulevard in China. As you can see, she isn’t driving quite slowly and apparently there’s no adult assistance. Towards the end of the clip you can notice a man who emerges from the rear seat in order to remove some sort of gear from the pedals which probably were installed there so that the girl could work with the brakes and throttle. Most likely, the person who is recording this video is the little girl’s father.
The video you are about to see was recorded at a stop light in The Woodlands where the driver of a Corvette C5 decided to do a drag race with an owner of the current-gen Corvette C6. Just like they do in the movies, both drivers decided to rev their V8 engines and pushed the acceleration pedal down to the floor when the green light came on. The race lasted for only 9 seconds because the owner of the C5 lost control of his car and hit the C6.
You probably knew already that the 2013 Nissan GT-R was going to be an impressive car, but it is even better than most of you have hoped, being capable of hitting 100 km/h in only 2.84 seconds. If this figure is accurate it means that the car will be faster than the Ferrari 599 GTO, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and pretty much every car out there, except for the Bugatti Veyron.
As a reminder, the 2013 Nissan GT-R is powered by a revised twin-turbo V6 3.8-liter engine that develops 542 hp (550 PS / 405 kW) and a peak torque of 466 lb.-ft (632 Nm). We don’t have official details regarding the performance specifications of the car, but we do know that it is going to be a very quick vehicle.
Skillful (and reckless) Skyline driver drifts into a parking spot
The driver of the Nissan Skyline you are about to see in the following video is very skillful, yet reckless at the same time. If it weren’t for those pedestrians near the parking spot, we would have given the driver of the Skyline an A+ for his parking skills, but since he put in danger a lot of people with his maneuver, we have to say that we’re dealing with a reckless driver that really doesn’t care about the people around him.
Ferrari 250 GT Coupe knocks down five people at Mille Miglia event
A funny incident happened at this year’s edition of the Mille Miglia event when the driver of a superb 1957 Ferrari Berlinetta 250 GT Coupe managed to knock five people off their feet, literally. The driver made his entrance a little bit too fast and he hastily hit the brakes of the car which caused the plastic flooring to move, knocking down those innocent people.
Every time you drive on the highway you expose yourself to some risks, even though you are following the speed limits and doing everything by the book. It only takes a blink of an eye for something very bad to happen.
In this video you can see that the driver that has a dash-mounted camera not only managed to dodge a sedan that was out of control and slid in front of the him/her, but he also quickly turned the wheel of the car in order to avoid a frontal collision with an incoming SUV which probably would have been deadly. Was it luck or just an extremely skilled driver? Probably both.
