Friday is always a day of celebration. Here on the 1A Auto Blog, we usually do something fun like posting up burnout videos. Well, today will not be any different. Just when I thought that I couldn’t love Cadillac CTS-V’s any more, people stick twin turbo’s on them, and make burnout videos. Here are three of them FYE…
Lexus claims that “the hard way is the only way” in their latest YouTube video. Apparently they make carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) for the Lexus LFA on a giant circular loom that they invented themselves. It is really quite cool to watch if I do say so myself. Whoever engineered this thing deserves multiple high five’s. Enjoy the video!
Today is Earth Day, and rather that polluting your eyes and ears with awesome videos of supercharged big block muscle cars doing smokey burnouts, we are going to give the electric cars their chance to shine. So, without further adieu, I present to you an electric Porsche 914 and a Corbin Sparrow/Myers Motors NmG (a.k.a. “Tweety Bird”) burnout video for your enjoyment. If you have one to share, post it up! Also, don’t litter.
If you have an expensive car, you should always invest in expensive ramps to get it into and out of large transport trucks. Heck, maybe even go as far as to get a high-end transport company to do the work for you. Somewhere Ferdinand Porsche is watching, totally unimpressed by the engineering of such an event.
Have you ever seen a commercial and just wanted to watch it over and over again? Recently, I was cruising around Reddit and saw this posted up by thesauce25. It is a commercial for Shell gasoline, with the help of Ferrari race cars racing through the city streets. The sounds coming from the cars are incredible.
First off, LS series engines are a new obsession of mine. Secondly, I just so happen to own a Subaru Impreza. So, it seems fitting that I post up a video of an LS engine swapped Subaru. The video claims LS-2, but I think it’s actually a cast iron 6.0L LQ4. Be sure to crank your volume way up for this one. It sounds delish.
