Jon Olsson is a famous pro-skier but to the petrolheads he's famous also because he drives in extreme conditions several supercars. If you don't know his previous rides, he used to drive in the snow a Gallardo, a Murcielago Superveloce and also a tuned R8.

If you drive and don't pay enough attention, of course there is a risk to cause an accident but well, if you do it blindfold, then don't be surprised to smash your car.

So, you think you can face a twin turbo Lamborghini? Unless you have a car with nearly twice the amount of power of a Bugatti Veyron, just keep dreaming!

We've seen plenty of videos and pictures of the LaFerrari driving in town or lapping racetracks, but finally we get to hear the glorious 6.3L V12 being revved at high rpms! The author of this video was lucky enough to be invited by Ferrari to see the LaFerrari closely in their atelier and to hear one just outside the building which undoubtedly sounds ferocious!

In the previous post you may have seen how China is becoming a very rich country and to confirm this statement, here's the very first Pagani Huayra to hit the country. The Huayra is an hypercar that hasn't been launched yet in the chinese market, it's official debut is set in April 2014 at the Beijing Auto Show.

The quick industrial expansion is making China one of the richest countries in the world and it's becoming a key-market for most luxury car manufacturers. Altough the duties and taxes on imported cars are ridiculously high (fun fact, over there a Ferrari 458 Italia costs $636.000), the amount of supercars is growing quickly and the cars involved in this wedding in the city of Wenzhou is a clear example.

Well, first of all Merry Christmas to everyone! Today instead of taking a break I've decided anyway to spend some time to find something interesting to enjoy also today and well, since it's Christmas here's some content feauring a lot of horsepower and snow.

If you're a follower of the Gumball 3000, then you can't forget Bryan Salamone and his chrome and orange Lamborghini Aventador.. oh, and also his " sober " concubine.

Just yesterday I have explained you how most supercars get driven around Maranello thanks to the rental companies you may find in town and sadly we just get to know that yesterday took place a brutal accident in the area.

The Mercedes A45 AMG is a quite different AMG from the others because under the bonnet we don't find a typical V12 or V8 engine with a byblical displacement, but a tiny 2.0L turbocharged 4-cyl engine.
If you've ever had the opportunity to visit Maranello, you might have noticed that there are a few supercar rental companies just outside Ferrari's museum. All the year many tourists which come to visit Ferrari pay a visit also to one of these companies to experience the thrill to drive a Ferrari at full speed just outside the city, and of course to post after the video of their dream ride on YouTube.

We don't know exactly what's the plan for the unveiling of the long awaited Gallardo successor, but it looks like they haven't handled very well the situation in order to avoid a leakage of material regarding the car that everyone's waiting to see.

I love the new Corvette C7 Stingray; it's fast, beautiful and sounds great. The 6.2L V8 engine produces 460hp which is enough to offer good performance, such as a top speed of 190mph (305 kph) and a sprint to 60 mph (100 kph) in just 3.8s. But what if, you want more from this american muscle?

Reckless driving, racing and tail gating at high speed. Yes, here we go with another bunch of idiots doing some stupid things on public streets.. The video is set in the brazilian highway and shows from the inside of a BMW M5 a group of people speeding and exceeding 300kph with their sport cars. The driving style of these people is very dangerous and posting their stunts as well as their faces and plates on YouTube is not really a clever idea, isn't it?

Don't worry guys, Santa won't be late this year and also, it won't be a silent night. Santa just got rid of his reindeers and upgraded to a Bull, a Lamborghini LP560-4 Spyder. This american Santa just drove around Los Angeles with his loyal elf to see the reaction of the crowd and well, a Lamborghini with a Christmas Tree stuck on the top is certainly a way to get some attention!

It's not surprising to see a video in which a bike goes faster than a supercar, bikes are much lighter and with a better power to weight ratio, and that means that it offers an handling and acceleration impossible to reach for a car.

Earlier this year, the guys at The Supercar Driver organized a trip to Molsheim, home of the Bugatti factory. One of the participants has been lucky enough to experience quick a test drive in the Bugatti Veyron and thanks to this onboard video we can experience (sort of!) how's it like to push the mighty 1001hp of the Bugatti Veyron in the highway and in the french countryside.
Perhaps most supercar owners have lost their capacities to drive? It's sad that somewhere in the world, another supercar has been totalled. The driver of this 1st generation Lamborghini Murcielago (which shows some very uncool SuperVeloce stickers) slammed into a Chevy Caprice in Kuwait.

A new day rises and another supercar bites the dust. This time an orange McLaren 12C has slammed at high speed into a concrete pole in Taiwan. The car is totalled and due to the rough crash it's kinda hard to recognize by looking the front o the right side that is missing completely!

Everyone know the Lamborghini Veneno LP750-4, a Lamborghini that is crazy as much as it's expensive. With just 4 units to be built, the chances to see one are very, very low and just a few lucky chaps will be able to experience the thrill to get inside one of them.

That's a negative week, isn't it? In this little amout of time I have already reported the crash of three Lamborghinis, a Ferrari, a Bentley and a Porsche and now I report news from Geneva of another crash involving a Ferrari, more precisely a 458 Italia.
Less than a month ago, McLaren announced to have sold out the production of the P1. The production has started in September and actually just a couple of units (out of the 375 to be produced) have been delivered to their lucky customers but we're aware there's already the first P1 on sale.

Give the key of a powerful supercar to a young, inexperienced driver and then don't be surprised to witness a scene like this. A 18 years old driver has totalled (dad's car?) a Bentley Continental GT in the streets of West Los Angeles. The driver lost the control of the Bentley and crashed into a few poles and into a car.
How many different models Ferrari has produced since the beginning, hundreds? Well, it's quite challenging to know them all and it's always a surprise to surf the internet and find some Prancing Horses that are unknown to most enthusiasts.

The new Ford Mustang GT has been shown for the first time when, 10 minutes ago? I know that you can't wait to hear how does this american muscle sounds like, so there you go! On YouTube has already popped up the very first video of the all new GT revving nicely its engine at a Cars and Coffee event in California.

Monaco.. is there a more tempting place to unleash the power of a Ferrari with the roof down? The city is home of the famous F1 Grand Prix and once you drive through those famous street, it's quite challenging not to push the pedal to the metal!

What's the point to abandon this Maserati? Is it stolen? Abandoned for debts? And why the hell is it sitting on a pile of rocks since about 4 months? This sad news comes from the chinese city of Yuli and reports a yellow Maserati 4200 GT Spyder left at the side of the road for several months and for unknown reasons at the mercy of vandals and people with no respect.

This morning in the North-South Malaysian Expressway a rough accident has involved 3 Lamborghinis and according to the witnesses, the reason is the speed. The 3 Bulls (a Gallardo, an LP570-4 Superleggera and an Aventador) were on their way to Kuala Lumpur with the company of a bigger supercar convoy when the crash happened.
Everyone know the engine we find in the new generation of the Porsche 911 is water cooled, but this owner is taking things too seriously, or perhaps he thought his car was also a good boat. The protagonist of this accident is the wet chinese man you see laying on the bonnet of his Porsche that is floating in a lake in the city of Jinan.

The time we have been waiting is nearly come. After a lot of testing and spy footages of the P1 around the Nürburgring, McLaren has shown their first official video regarding the attempt to break the 7 minutes barrier. They did it! But sadly, that's all we know. The lap time that McLaren has set to beat is 6:57 minutes belonging to the Porsche 918 Spyder. Now the questions is.. is the P1, faster than the 918?
I'm not a fan of replicas, but I admit this one is very well done. For £35.000 you can fool most pedestrians and drive around town in a replica of a Ferrari 458 based on a Ford Cougar. Forget the performance and engine of the real supercar, this replica hides in the front a 2.5L V6 that produces a not-so-exciting 168hp, with an even less impressive 0-60 mph sprint in 8.6s and a top speed of 140 mph.

If you're looking for a cheap (or just half) Ferrari 458 Italia to buy this might be your moment. An employee from a transport company (in Birminghman, Alabama) decided to go for a joy ride with a friend in a 458 before to be loaded into the truck, but the result of this recklessness had a negative effect as the driver lost the control of the Ferrari at around 225 kph (140mph), hit a post and broke the car into two pieces.

The last weekend during the BMW Driver Days event held at Zandvoort, a BMW 130i racecar has been protagonist of a very rough crash caught on camera. The BMW loses traction in the corner and collides at high speed into the barriers and then rolls over in the gravel.

The result of a race between a supercar and motorcycle is always kinda predictable, supercars are much heavier and with a lower power to weight ratio, but this time is different and in the following video we see a biker racing a Nissan GT-R with his Suzuki GSXR on a public highway and surprisingly, the GT-R is much faster and there's no way for the bike to overtake him.

The Maserati Ghibli has succesfully passed the scrupulous crash tests of the two most important entities when it comes to safety on cars. The Ghibli has received the maximum rating of 5 stars from the european Euroncap and " Top Safety Pick " title from the american IIHS.
