Driving a car without an insurance is illegal and doing it with a chrome purple Lamborghini Aventador is not really a great idea because well, you don't really go unnoticed.

Alfa Romeo has released a new official video regarding the 4C in motion. Although the marketing guys of Alfa Romeo had the brilliant idea to let us hear some music instead of the real noise of the engine, at least we can see the 4C moving quickly and sideways around Fiat's Balocco test track.

It's not really a recent video, but who cares when you can hear a Ferrari 599 GTO blasting through a tunnel? The high-revving sound of the 599 GTO is wild and loud, not to mention the outrageous downshifts followed by the backfire, driving a GTO through a tunnel is definitely a mental experience for your ears!

Justin Bieber hits again, literally. The famous singer has been caught in Sunset Boulevard as he was leaving a restaurant with his well known Ferrari 458 Italia. He's always sorrounded by paparazzis and this time the flashes of their cameras have caused him problems to drive, and of course if you're smart enough to stand close to the car you don't have to be surprised if you get hit.

The Porsche 997 GT2 is a truly beasty track car and it's not easy to handle, you really need good driving skills, and if you want to push it hard at the Nürburgring, you better know what you're doing. It's not the case of this driver which you're going to see crashing his GT2 at Flugplatz.

How much horses can you fit in the bonnet of a Lamborghini? If you take a look at this Lamborghini LP570-4 Superleggera you may think that's stock, but its V10 engine with the addiction of two turbos now produces 2000hp, nearly three times more than a Lamborghini Aventador! Now that we know how much power this insane Bulls is producing, it's time to see it in action in the drag strip against a couple of tuned supercars such as the GT-R and the Juke-R that a few days ago nearly humiliated a Veyron!

The guys at DragTimes have organized a street race with four beasty and tuned supercars, a Nissan GT-R with 1000hp, a Porsche GT2 with 1000hp, a Porsche 997 GT3 RS 9ff with 900hp and last but not least.. a Lamborghini LP570-4 Superleggera with 2000hp! The streets are hopefully empty because with these cars you can see them reaching without efforts 300kph!

The sound of a rotary engine is just unique, deafening and special, it's something impossible to replicate with a pistons engine. If you are a Le Mans enthusiast you might have already seen this clip, but I know that you won't resist to see it again, an onboard lap in the 1991 Le Mans winner Mazda 787B is just pure pornography and your ears won't stop to say thanks.

Driving into a racetrack involves risks, you have to be careful if you don't want to crash, or a car to crash into you. What you're going to see here is an Honda Civic nearly crashing into a Lotus Exige around Modena racetrack. The Exige tries to overtake the Civic but at the same time it attempts to overtake the Honda Del Sol with an imminent bad scene to watch. Calling this a close call is a bit reductive, it's just incredible at how close the Honda was to the fiberglass body of the Lotus, I think we were all expecting to see a crash from this!
Skip to the minute 5:00 for the action.

The Batventador shows to the crowd one of its weapons to fight crime: the lethal and noisy V12 powered flamethrower! Jokes a part, this matte black Lamborghini Aventador is known as the " Batventador " and you might understand why.. driven and owned by a lovely blondie, she loves to hit the rev limiter and let the enthusiasts enjoy the brutal sound and flames coming out the custom Innotech exhaust.

If you want to learn how to drive and have fun with your sports car in a beautiful and lonely road.. well, this video is not good for you. At the beginning of the video you realize how dumbs are both guys with their BMW M3s, they keep moving in the opposite lane at high speed, their race ends until the dark blue M3 comes too fast in a tight corner and jumps down a cliff. The GoPro is still intact after the hard collision and it's able to show us also what is a bit less intact, the german exotic.

So, you want to take out the whole family for a drive at Dubai Mall but you don't have a proper family car? Sounds like a first world problem... not. A spotter in Dubai has caught this bizarre (and not very safe, let me add) scene, a Ferrari 458 Spider sharing 2 seats with the husband, the wife and their 3 kids! I'm quite sure that he hasn't received yet the invitation from his local Ferrari dealership to see the Ferrari FF.

In Soviet Russia, tuned crossovers shit the pants of Bugattis. That's right, the russian guys at DragTimesInfo made it again with another epic 1 mile drag race featuring a stock Bugatti Veyron and a tuned Nissan Juke-R producing 700hp. Already at the first second you realize how fast is the launch of the Nissan, it's undoubtedly the winner in the 1/4 mile challenge but then the Veyron catches up the Nissan and just at the very last moment the driver of the Bug may breathe a sigh of relief.

The speed, mixed with the conditions of low grip due to the wet road have caused a terrible and deadly accident nearby Vicenza in North Italy, and unfortunately the victim is just 11 years old, the cousin of the driver. A red Ferrari F355 driven by a 22 years old boy was speeding and suddendly lost the control by crashing into a house.

What if, a tiny Mazda MX-5 is beats a Lamborghini and other exotics in a 1/4 mile run? I'm not kidding.. well, the MX-5 as proven in this video brought by Mazda, in certain conditions it could be faster than others more powerful and expensive cars. Does the Mazda had a tuned engine on steroids or something like that? Not really.. the winner is of course the first car to across the finish line, but in order to do that, in a simulated thunderstorm you can take off once you have fully raised up the roof!

Sophie takes out her Ferrari 458 Italia and races an heavily tuned Nissan GT-R AMS Alpha 12 in a drag strip. I think that you already know the result, since Godzilla on steroids produces an outstanding 1500hp, mean while the stock 458 " just " 570hp.. in any case, it's always good to see a chick pushing the pedal to the metal!

Is there anything better than drinking and watching a parade of fast cars at the Nürburgring? This video reminds a lot our traditional burnouts in the tunnels of Monza after a trackday, and this scene is quite similar, but of course it takes place in Germany, and that involves a lot of BMWs and beer, a good mix if you want to see right now a crowd of drunk petrolheads yelling and stopping every M-Car for some revs and accelerations.

A new world record has been set by the crazy russian guys at DragTimesInfo, if you remember, back in April a GT-R tuned by AMS Alpha 12 producing an incredible 1700hp marked an even more incredible 374km/h (232 mph) in 22.7s in a mile run. This GT-R is back on the russian drag strip in order to improve his performance, and he made it successfully with a 1/4 mile covered in 22.5s at 382.16km/h (237.5)!

As you know, racing is dangerous and it's not hard to see an accident on track but what happened to Red Bull's F1 Team Adrian Newey well.. it's just awkward. The last weekend Newey took part to the Lamborghini SuperTrofeo championship at Silverstone and during the warm-up lap he lost the control of the car and crashed into the wall by marking the end of his race. At least, it's not Grosjean's fault this time.

The long awaited summer weather has brought a lot of petrolheads in the last days for a blast at the infamous Nürburgring, and unfortunately several videos of accidents have been uploaded to YouTube. Yesterday you may remember the accident of a rental Toyota GT-86, today's video might shock you since a spectator has caught on camera a frightening accident of an Honda Civic at Fuchsröhre. The car loses the rear at around 160km/h and smashes roughly multiple times against the barriers.

Driving at Nürburgring with a rental car might be very risky not just because it's a tricky racetrack, but also because if you crash, you have to pay a lot of money to the company. This rental Toyota GT-86 has definitely seen better days on this track, since this customer arrives too fast and crashes into the barriers at Brünnchen, a very well known corner if you suffer understeer.

I feel like that the dune buggy is too mainstream if nowadays you want to move around the beach, here's why this guy is doing it properly with a Koenigsegg CCXR, like a boss let me add.
