Lovely Lexus LFA for sale

At the end of March we've heard about the lastest Lexus LFA delivered to its lucky customer in Europe. If you had the cash but not the chance to take a place on one of the 500 LFAs to be produced, now you have the chance to buy one, but you have to move up to China, and by considering the high amount of supercar crashes in that place, you'd better do it quickly.

Supercars trailer on fire

I've come across recent news from Thailand regarding more supercars on fire and guess what, it involves a Ferrari and a Lamborghini. Nothing new to be honest, but during the fire the trailer was transporting a 430 Scdueria, a Murcielago LP640 as well as a couple of Bentley Flying Spurs, a BMW X6M and more german cars. The causes of the fire are still unknown, but from this video we can see how the flames have erupted and caused several damages.

This Bentley is everything but clean

Yes, this is a kinda awkward moment. You drive your expensive Bentley Continental GTC to a car wash and detailing company and you explicity ask to have your car returned in outstanding conditions like a brand new car, and well, you get your car back in these conditions. Someone working for a british detailing company has crashed the Continental GTC of their customer into the waiting area, hopefully nobody didn't reported injuries, but I'm afraid that another detailing won't be enough for this Bentley.

McLaren 12C vs Ferrari 458

Two of the hottest and fastest V8 supercars of the moment side by side, the Ferrari 458 Italia and the McLaren 12C. Who might be the quickest on a long straight competition, the Ferrari with its great sounding V8 or the McLaren with its smaller but twin turbocharged V8?

Chick does 50-300kph in the Veyron

A chick pushing the pedal to the metal on a Bugatti Veyron is not your usual scene, and when it happens it's really a good scene. This swedish girl called Sophie was let to drive a Veyron on a long straight during the  GTBoard event, she unleashed 1000hp and reached 300kph with an absolute rapidity and safety, after all the Veyron looks to be an easy car to drive and handle at high speed!

Quattroporte owner damages his own car

It's not really the first time that we use to see something like this, but it looks like that in China, angry supercar owners prefer to smash their cars on public rather than risolve the dispute with their manifacturer. This time, the owner of a 423.000$ (yes, car taxes are huuuge in China) Maserati Quattroporte had an issue  with Maserati China and his dealership. His car after a wreck has been repaired by replacing the parts with again used and not brand new parts, and of course they charged him the service. Enraged, he decided to hire four people and hammers in order to smash his Quattroporte in front of Qingdao International Auto Show, a very strategic place to have a big media coverage.

Turbocharged California drifting

Did you notice that this California is quieter than a standard model? That's right, what you see there are a couple of Ferrari's test driver having some fun at Fiorano with the upcoming Ferrari California which hides under the bonnet a turbocharged engine. After the era of the latest turbocharged Ferrari, the F40, the turbo in a Prancing Horse is supposed to return around 2014. The author of this video was lucky enough to catch a busy moment on track, you may see also an F12 and a camouflaged LaFerrari!

Veyron SS WRE Accelerations

As you know, the Bugatti Veyron SS WRE is fast as much as it's rare. The guys at TheSupercarDriver managed to have one of those in their convoy with the company of other supercars and showed for the camera a couple of accelerations side by side with a Ferrari F355 Spider. Just to let you understand how big is the gap between the two cars, the Bugatti produces 825hp more than the Ferrari!

Maserati Quattroporte gets vandalized

A day of celebration has ended into a riot in the city of Paris. Just a couple of days ago the local football team Paris Saint-Germain has won for the second time in a row the national football championship and just like most time happens, the excuse to go out and celebrate turns out into a pretext to destroy everything you find. Over the day there have been a riot in the city and struggles against the police, and that's why I'm gonna show you how some vandals (hard to call them football enthusiasts) took aim to a Maserati Quattroporte by destroying the side mirror, the windshield and the side glasses.

More McLaren P1 Sounds

This car doesn't really need any more presentations, since the deliveries haven't started yet, it's still good to see new videos of this car testing and to hear the the sound of its 3.8L twin turbo around track!

Sick Police Cars in Dubai

I think that you have all heard about the recent purchase of new toys for the Police of Dubai. The fleet includes a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ferrari FF, a Chevrolet Camaro SS, a Bentley Continental GT, a Mercedes SLS AMG and, incredible to know.. an Aston Martin ONE-77! We've seen many pictures floating on the web, but now it's time to see them in action while patroling the streets!

Lamborghini Egoista Sound!

In utter surprise, yesterday night Lamborghini has shown to the media and the participants of the 50th Anniversary Grande Giro a new concept called Egoista to celebrate half century of the brand. The name fits perfectly because it means " selfish " and just like Ferruccio Lamborghini once said " I'm going to put the engine in the back, I don't want a passenger ", the Egoista is a single seater concept with a 5.2L V10 600hp engine located in the back. The car is designed from VolksWagen Group and obviously is heavily inspired from a jet fighter and looks to be the most extreme Lamborghini ever made.

Lucky Ferrari 458 Nearly Crashes

Driving a supercar at Nürburgring is not easy, and if the weather is not optimal, you'd better think twice what you're doing! This Ferrari 458 Italia caught on a rainy day loses the rear at Brünnchen corner, it spins out and nearly crashes into the barriers, but hopefully the italian supercar remains on the tarmac of the track.

Bugatti Veyron Launch!

The Bugatti Veyron is a very expensive car to buy, keep and drive, so that's why watching one attempting a launch with all the 4 smoking tires is a very rare scene! This is certainly a pretty expensive launch, the gearbox costs 170.000 $ and a new set of tires 42.000 $. Rumors are about this Veyron to produce an incredible 1500hp, not sure if this is true but the exhaust is certainly tuned.

Balotelli drives his new 458 in a go-kart track

It's quite hard for footballplayer Mario Balotelli to go unnoticed not only when it comes to his continuos childish actions, but also when it comes to cars. When he was playing for Manchester City he crashed his matte black Audi R8 V10, then he bought a quite weird Bentley Continental GT with a matte camouflaged wrap, now he's back to Italy and decided to drive his brand new Ferrari 458 Spider... in a go-kart track! His contract with Milan football club doesn't allows him to drive a go-kart, so he decided to use his 458! Monza is not so far from Milan, how about driving it in a proper place.. uh?

This Aventador sounds absolutely great!

We just simply love the sound of the Aventador, and we can't get enough to hear how does it sounds with a straight pipes exhaust! Power Craft is a japanese exhaust company and has realized a crazy exhaust for the Aventador, in Silent Mode (they have a weird standard for calling it " silent ") it's just louder than a standard Aventador, but in " Exciting Mode " the car just sounds like a wild beast!

Pagani's test driver shows off

Every year many tourists and petrolheads come to the Motor Valley to visit the Pagani factory, when you are in the area is not unusual to see a Huayra or a Zonda driving around for a test drive. A few lucky spotters have filmed Pagani's test driver Davide Testi showing to the cameras how you make an intersection in a Pagani!

This is a very particular Zonda with a long story, it's a very old development car (chassis n.2) born as a C12 6.0 and in this video has the configuration of the 760RS. This Zonda has been driven for over 1 million kilometers and used to test all the Zonda models, so yes this is the mother of all Zondas, or " Nonno " (grandpa), that's how the guys at Pagani use to call it!

Don't mess with the Carrera GT!

A legendary Porsche meeting the fastest 911 ever at Nürburgring means just one thing.. race! The Porsche Carrera GT is still one of the best Porsches ever made and has similar numbers, compared to the Porsche 911 GT2 RS (612hp the V10 of the GT, 620hp the flat-six of the RS), they have something else in common, they're two difficult cars to drive, the GT is a real beast to tame!

Start to see the video from minute 27:00, that's where the GT meets the RS and the battle begins, until the driver of the GT2 RS reaches his limits and spins out, but with a huge luck he doesn't crashes into the barriers which happens most of the times if you crash at the Green Hell since the guard rail is just a meter far from the tarmac of the track.

And the lesson of today is: don't ever try to keep up a Carrera GT, just turn down the window and enjoy that heck of a V10 sound!

Volvo S40 vs Lamborghini Gallardo

A family car racing a supercar. Well, the Volvo S40 is not really made for the speed and you may think without doubts who's gonna win the race, but a Volvo showing up on a drag strip can be everything but stock. Indeed, this S40 has 420hp under the bonnet, mean while the Gallardo has 100hp more. Will the boring, average swedish car beat the hot, italian supercar? Well, just click and see..

The most annoying passenger.. ever!

If you're wondering.. no, this is not a movie or a staged scene! When you're pushing a rally car you need the maximum concentration, but this passenger is doing everything to get the award of the world's most annoying passenger. Hopefully the driver enjoys his humor, any other person would not have hesitated to punch him!

MC12 Corsa and Enzo ZXX at Nürburgring

Every day you can see nice cars at the Nürburgring because the track activity is costant, in certain days you can see truly epic machines such as an orange Maserati MC12 Corsa and a yellow Ferrari Enzo ZXX, both tuned by EDO Competition. Just to add even more epicness, the Ferrari was driven by Sabine Schmitz in person! Enjoy the clip of these two extreme machines lapping the Green Hell.

If you don't know that, it's not a mistake, that's not an FXX but a road legal Enzo tuned up to 840hp, mean while the MC12 produces 755hp.

Valentino Balboni driving a Ferrari 430 Scuderia

Altough Valentino Balboni retired from his work as test driver, he still collaborates with Lamborghini and it's not hard to find him behind the wheel of a Bull at car events in order to promote the image of the company. Maybe after 40 years of driving Lamborghinis he wanted to try something different, none other than the straight competition such as Ferrari! The video of today shows the master enjoying a drive at MSR Houston track with a Ferrari 430 Scuderia, Mr.Baloni behind the wheel of a Prancing Horse is not something that you see every day!

1500hp GTR vs 1600hp Gallardo

This is a quite epic challenge, take two supercars, tuned them as much as you can and then see who's faster on a drag strip. Side by side you find an incredible 3100hp! Altough the twin turbo Gallardo has 100 more horsepower, it's a 6-Speed manual and it's certainly slower than the quick double clutch of the GT-R. So, who's gonna cross the finish line first? Just click and enjoy the race.

McLaren P1 - The testing continues

The McLaren P1 is limited to 375 units with a price tag of $1.1m  and of course the whole production is completely sold out. The first deliveries will start in just two months and in the mean time the british company is about to end the final testing and developing processes for the production vehicle. McLaren has released an official video regarding a test session somewhere in Scandinavia involving the P1 with a camo wrap and snow.. a lot of snow. What you can do with 916hp and a slippery surface? The McLaren test driver certainly had good fun!
