Mastering that fine line between drifting and crashing is an art, not a science. To protect the common man from hitting that fine line too harshly, Chevy has just introduced the “No dorifto” inflatable restraint system into its new Camaros. It protects the driver and passengers from that dastardly asphalt ocean that they are adrift in.
Air bags: Can’t win with them, can’t win without them.
Last week, this video popped up on the interwebs. It consists of a camera strapped to a 650+ horsepower Ariel Atom. Not familiar with the Atom you say? Well, just imagine an F1 car that you can drive on the street. It is sort of like that, but less expensive. It’s not a luxury or winter vehicle by any means, but it will out corner any other vehicle in your neighborhood, and make your friends shriek out profanity. The one in this video was apparently built by RealStreetPerformance in Orlando Florida. It claims to have 650+ horsepower coming from a K20 Honda engine with the help of some forced induction. The power is sent through a 6-speed to the rear wheels, which clearly makes for one serious hell ride.
A 4G63 turbo powered rail car of course! I know, I know, you are probably all like “Hey enough with the Mitsubishi power drag cars already!” My response to you is “Share some new, exciting, and unique non-mitsu powered stuff with me and I’ll post ‘em up!”
Now, I really should have far more details about this car due to it being a local guy, its sheer awesomeness, the hottness, the quickness, and its immeasurable good looks. Unfortunately I don’t at the moment. If this video gets a positive response though, I will be sure to get all the details, have a real write-up (not just a quicky like this) and so much more! This car has been many years in the making, so seeing it nearly dip into the 6’s while knocking on the door of 200mph is just plain sick. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I do.
Here’s a really cool 1930 Ford model A coupe Rat Rod with a suicide shifter outside of the car. It has a gas tank inside the car and a pretty cool gas cap located on the roof to fill-er-up. There’s a lot of really nice custom work done on this one.
Well, you’re too late, because BMW already did it in “Part 2″ of their BMW 1M viral video marketing campaign. I’ll be the first to say, they are two for two. Not too shabby. If you missed the first video, click this, and you will find it. It is a BMW 1M drifting through concrete walls. Strange, I know, but it’s quite impressive.
