Bugatti Veyron Vitesse vs Koenigsegg Agera R

Posted in Bugatti, European Rides, General, Koenigsegg, Racing, Videos by MrAngry | October 10th, 2013 | 1 Response |

Veyron

2,340 horsepower. That’s the total combined power output of the Bugatti Veyron Vitesse and Koenigsegg Agera R. Since the Veyron was introduced in 2005, it has become the poster child for flat-out speed. However within the last 10 years a few other manufacturers have stepped up to offer a challenge. One of the biggest guns comes in the form of the Koenigsegg Agera R. This is a car with 1,140 hp, a top speed of 273 mph and a drag coefficient of 0.33 to 0.37 with adaptable rear wings which makes it incredibly slippery. The big question though is, which car is faster – the Bugatti Veyron Vitesse or the Koenigsegg Agera R. Click through to find out.

Larry Lime Rock

Recently Larry Kosilla of AMMONYC.com and /DRIVE CLEAN took a little road trip with some buddies up to Lime Rock Park in Connecticut for the Continental Tire Challenge. In tow (behind his Porsche 964) was a ungodly powerful Shelby GT500, a Boss 302 and an itsy-bitsy (but very fast) Lotus Elise. The goal of the day was simple – watch the races, hang out with friends and then of course, go home and clean your car. Not only was there some good driving footage, but Larry was able to get up close an personal with some of the drivers, so make sure to click through and check it out.

2014 Jaguar XFR-S

The new 2014 Jaguar XFR-S packs a supercharged V-8 that pumps out 550-hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. It also produces some of the most glorious automotive noises we’ve ever heard. Motor Trend’s Carlos Lago recently got behind the wheel to see if this big cat roared like a lion or purred like a house cat. Check it out after the jump.

Fiat 500L

For those of you out there who want to play grab-ass with your girlfriends Mom, well then, Fiat’s got the car for you! I mean hell, what middle-aged Cougar wouldn’t go crazy for a car with Italian styling, nicely appointed seats and an interior that’s so roomy that it literally lets her kiss you on the face without anyone knowing. Sadly though there’s no dirty talk, which I suppose is appropriate since Fiat’s are mostly visual little buggers anyway. Check it out after the jump.

Porsche 964 RSR Crash: What would you do?

Porsche RSR Crash

Dealing with an accident face-to-face is not something that most of us ever want to do. For one, what we see may stay with us forever, and two, the majority of people simply freeze up not knowing how to react. This is exactly what happened when rally driver Harry Kleinjan crashed during the Hellendoorn Rally 2013. His Porsche 964 RSR went careening out of control hitting a barrier, which in turn flipped it upside down into a small canal. As you can see there are loads of people standing around, yet no one is rushing to help. That begs the question – faced with an accident where you may be able to help someone, would you?

Drift Idiot

There’s no shame in admitting that I am not, and never shall be a drift expert. In fact if my cars are going sideways, then the odds of me doing something wrong at that moment are pretty damn good. Corey Hosford from DriftIdiot though, is a professional drifter, and a damn good one at that. In his recent exploits he’s teamed up with the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving to see just how good their cars are for going sideways.

Throttle Stuck Collision

Throttle Stuck Collision

Six years ago I was involved in a very bad motorcycle accident. I was riding to work in New York City when a woman made an illegal left turn in front of me and I t-boned her at 45 mph. It was a situation where there was nothing I could do except brace for the impact and hope that I made it. Unfortunately there are times when accidents cannot be avoided, and when this happens you have little choice but to hold on for the ride and hope for the best. The owner of the following hot rod knows this all to well. Check it out after the jump.

Death Proof Car Chase: Good or Bad?

Posted in Car Chase, Crashes, Dodge, Domestic Rides, General, Racing, Rides, Stunts, Videos by MrAngry | August 17th, 2013 | 3 Responses |

Death Proof

Bullitt and Vanishing Point. Two cheesy films from the late 1960’s and early ’70’s that have only one redeeming quality – the car chases. These films set the standard for what many believe to be the best automotive car chases in history. Fast forward now to 2007 – Director Quentin Tarantino decides he’s going to have a go at creating his own version of the car chase using the same cars in the aforementioned films. He took a 1969 Dodge Charger (Bullitt used a ’68) and a 1970 Dodge Challenger, filmed them at speed and hoped the entire car chase world would love him for it. Hmm… not so much. While the chase was indeed good and actually filmed at speed like the originals, it simply lacked the overall grittiness that the first two had. Yes the cars were cool (anything Kurt Russell is in is cool), and yes the action great, but for some reason I just don’t think it lived up to the originals.

Am I wrong? Let me know what you think.
