A ride in a special Veyron

If you browse through YouTube videos, you'll find out that's pretty difficult to find a decent onboard video in the Bugatti Veyron, and that's a pity not to see properly how does it feel to ride a 1001hp supercar. Finally, my friend Shmee150 managed to take a proper video inside a special Veyron. This Bugatti is owned by Jay Broom, organizer of the annual Wilton House supercar event, and the car is special for two reasons, for its look, and its sound. As you see, the car is fitted with a special wrap specially made for this year's Wilton House event, and it's known also as the " BugARTi Veyron ". The Bugatti Veyron has been critised for its quiet sound, but this one is fitted with a Quicksilver Sports exhaust, and it sounds pretty good!

Terrible Mitsubishi EVO accident

Racing is always dangerous, and in this case it could have ended really, really bad. During a Speed Day trackday event at Monza held last Sunday, a Mitsubishi EVO 9 has crashed at high speed in the trickiest part of the track, the Ascari chicane. In the car there were two passengers with the driver, they have reported bruises and fractures, we can say a very light result for their wealth, considering that the car has been totally crashed (including the chassis) and none of them were wearing a safety helmet.

FAIL: Nissan 180SX Drift and Crash

The driver of this Nissan 180SX think it's very cool to drift with one hand, or to simply imitate what he has probably seen on " The Fast and Furious " movies, but he ends his attempt with a miserable fail, and a future bill from the workshop. Drifting properly with both hands on the steering wheel requires a lot of experience, how can you think to make it better with one hand?
