Rage Comet R: Off Road Supercar – XCAR

Posted in Cool Stuff, General, Off-Roading, Toys, Videos by MrAngry | August 29th, 2013 | 1 Response |

Rage Comet R

This is the Rage Comet R, and it’s as equally at home off-road as it is ripping around your favorite motocross track. It’s powered by a Kawasaki 1,352cc motorcycle engine that cranks out 200 hp. Pretty good stuff when you consider it weighs in at just under 1,100 lbs dry. 0-60 mph happens in around 3.5 seconds with a top speed of over 120 mph. Oh and by the way, it’s street legal… at least in the UK anyway. This is the type of road legal vehicle that enthusiasts over here in the U.S. would kill for. However since we can’t have it, you’ll just have to be content with watching the video. Click through and check it out.

Outback Off Road

Camping sucks – there I said it. Why anyone would want to go out into the elements, pitch a tent, and shit in the woods is beyond me. However there are those who love doing it. My idea of camping is different. You see I want a real bed, a toilet and a set of doors I can close that will actually keep wildlife and natures critters away from me. The Gall Boys Adventures down in Australia have camping down to a science, as not only do they make it fun and give you a roof over your head, but they give you a full dose of off-road awesomeness in the process. Check them out after the jump!

Chris Rock Jerry Seinfeld

The Lamborghini Miura is, in this writers opinion, the most beautiful automobile ever created. This week on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld welcomes friend and fellow comic Chris Rock to the stage. Rock is definitely not a car guy, but you’d have to be dead not to appreciate the beauty that is the Miura. From the eyelashes on the headlights, to the horizontally opposed V12, this is THE car that dreams are made of. Click on the link below to check out the season finale.

Dodge Polara CHP

If you’re like me then you can pretty much tell any type of police cruiser from the way the headlights look in your rear view mirror. Be it a Ford Crown Victoria, Mustang, Dodge Charger or even the Chevrolet Camaro’s that were used in the 1990’s, a good driver was always on the look out for these bad boys. Jay Leno recently had a chance to meet up with CHP Captain Matt Guthrie and former commissioner Spike Helmick, as well as five of the finest patrol cars of the last 40 years. This is a very cool episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, so make sure to click through and check it out.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: Don Rickles

Don Rickles

Don Rickles is one of the last true hardcore comedians. He made his bones in a time when you were either funny or you starved to death as a comic. His friends included such fellow icons as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. At age 87 he’s as sharp as ever and has the ability to come at you in such a way that your jaw will hit the floor. Rickles is this week’s featured comedian on Seinfeld’s, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and I have to say, that thus far, he may be my favorite guest to date.

Becx-TDS Racing: Semi Truck Drift Gymkhana

Semi Truck Drift

When Ken Block’s original Gymkhana One came out it set the stage for an entirely new genre of motor sport video. It’s been imitated and parodied, however with all the second hand videos that have come after, there is still nothing like the original. Take this attempt by Becx-TDS Racing where they’ve managed to get a semi-tractor to drift. Is it cool? Well, kinda. But the friggin’ thing is 10,000 lbs. and unfortunately lacks the quickness and grace of Block’s original video. I understand they’re trying to take the sport of gymkhana to another level, however I’m just not sure tractors are the best way to go about doing so.

Seinfeld

If you were to tell people that David Letterman and Jerry Seinfeld, two icons of television, were going to be stuck together in an old Volvo station wagon, you’d probably think comedy gold right? Well, not really. On this episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Seinfeld and Letterman go over how they got their start in the business, a little bit of parenting chit-chat and not much else. Yes, the Volvo wagon is cool as it used to be Paul Newman’s, aside from that though, this was one stale episode. Check it out by clicking on the link below.

Dad's Car

Sometimes we find the most precious gifts when we aren’t even looking. They generally come to us by chance at a time when we need them the most, and reward us in ways we could never dream possible. This episode of Petrolicious is one of my favorites, and after watching I think you’ll see why.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: Sarah Silverman

Seinfeld Coffee

Here it is people; the lead off episode of Season 2 of Jerry Seinfeld’s, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Jerry’s co-driver for this episode is funny lady Sarah Silverman. The car of choice? A stunning 1969 Jaguar XKE Series II E-Type. It’s powered by a 4.2-liter straight six that not only sounds glorious, but helps motivate the old cat to 60 mph in just 6.7 seconds. It also looks remarkably, like a penis…

But whatever, Silverman and Seinfeld are no doubt friends, but by the looks of the episode I get the feeling that they may have even shared a pillow or two – OR… I could be totally off base on that one. Just click the link below and watch it, because at days end it’s pretty damn funny.

On The Set – Need For Speed Movie

Posted in Best of, Celebrity Cars, General, Movie Cars, Top of the Heap, Videos by MrAngry | June 13th, 2013 | 1 Response |

Need For Speed

“Need for Speed is definitely accurate and authentic to real car racing culture” – this is what Director Scott Waugh says about his upcoming movie, Need for Speed. Maybe what he should have said was that it will “probably” be accurate to “video game” racing culture, because if he thinks that real track rats / enthusiasts are going to get behind this, he must be smoking crack.
