2012 Isle of Man TT

So, you think you’re a great motorcycle rider do you? You think that because you own leathers, a nice helmet and maybe do 2 or 3 track days a year that this puts you in some kind of elite club. Well, think again, because what you’re about to see is something that will shatter any preconceived notions of what you think “fast” is. The following footage was shot during the 2012 Isle of Man TT and it’s some of the most exhilarating, terrifying and flat-out insane scenes we’ve ever laid eyes on.

Kawasaki vs Audi RS6 on the autobahn.

Autobahn Run

Back in my younger (and dumber) days, running flat out on the open road on two-wheels was something that we’d do just about every weekend. Our runs however were somewhat illegal, whereas the race you’re about to see between a Kawasaki liter bike and an Audi RS6 was performed well withing the spectrum of the law as it took place on Germany’s autobahn. Both parties are no doubt maxed out, but in my opinion it’s the guy on the bike that really deserves the props.

Sébastien Loeb is considered to be the best driver currently on the circuit and after watching these highlights from the Monte-Carlo rally, we can see why.

1975BMW2002_5

Whether you know it or not, the BMW 2002 is one of the most important little cars ever imported into the United States.

Al Lamb 265 mph CBR 1000RR

The Bugatti Veyron has a top speed of over 260 mph, cost almost 2-million dollars and is one of the most technically advanced machines ever created for public purchase. It also has 2 doors, enough airbags to create a marshmallow, and electronics that make sure you don’t kill yourself if you get stupid with the go-pedal. Back in September pilot Al Lamb decided to forgo safety features, ditch two wheels and run a modified Honda CBR1000RR on the Bonneville Salt Flats to an amazing top speed of 265.454 mph. So, for those of you who think going 200 + mph in a car is impressive, watch the following video and prepare to have the meaning of impressive redefined.
