Plymouth Fury

The 24 Hours of Lemons is a race series here in the U.S. that pits $500 cars against each other in a test of speed and endurance. Most competitors go the light and quick route by showing up in an old Mazda Miata or an old 3-Series BMW. However there are those (like the guys from RoadKill) who decided to go a different route. Instead of light and fast, they chose heavy and slow by way of a 1973 Plymouth Fury. Check it out after the jump.

Off Road Racing

It’s finally happened. I must now figure out how to go off-road racing and this video is the reason why. It has finally convinced me that off-road desert racing is by far the coolest form of motorsport there is. Sure F1, WRC and even MOTO GP all provide a massive thrill factor, but if we’re being honest, there is nothing, and I mean NOTHING cooler than watching a full-on trophy truck run through the bumps at over 100 mph. You want awesome? Well then, here it is! Check it out after the jump.

Wall of Death Riders

Posted in Educational, Funny Videos, General, Pagani, Racing, Videos, Volkswagen by MrAngry | October 24th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Pagani Huayra

The 2014 Pagani Huayra is nothing short of an automotive masterpiece. It’s stunning to look at, is a world class performer and at the same time, has the ability to make just about any other super car out there feel inferior. Under the hood lies a mid-mounted 6.0-liter, twin-turbo V-12 that’s hand built by AMG to the tune of 730 horsepower and on paper, the statistics look to top all. The real question though is – does it? Motor Trends Jonny Lieberman recently headed to Modena, Italy to find out.
