Pagani Zonda F Roadster on the Top Gear Test Track


As a follow up to yesterday’s Bugatti Veyron post, here’s a clip of the Zonda F Roadster blitzing around Top Gear’s test track. Think it’ll be faster than the Veyron?

Top Gear Puts the Bugatti Veyron Around the Test Track


Some pretty fast cars have raced around the Lotus-designed Top Gear Test Track. Being at the top of the Power Lap board is almost as prestigious as have a sub-7:30.0 lap time on the Nurburgring. Last nights episode was a big one with the Pagani Zonda F Roadster managing to shave 6-tenths of a second off of the Zonda F’s lap time! To save you from Google’ing it, here’s an updated list of the top 5 fastest cars to have gone around the TG test track:

  1. 1:17.1 – Gumpert
  2. 1:17.3 – Ascari A10
  3. 1:17.6 – Koeniggsegg CCX (with the Top Gear Wing)
  4. 1:17.8 – Pagani Zonda F Roadster
  5. 1:18.4 – Pagani Zonda F

But the Zonda wasn’t the only car the Stig got to drive on last nights episode of Top Gear. He also got to put his foot down in the Bugatti Veyron. Where do you think the Veyron will finish? It’s a pretty heavy car, will it even be in the top 5 or can the 1,000 horsepower on tap overcome it’s handling limitations to let it claim it’s thrown at the top of the Power Board? Make a guess before you watch the video!

Incredible Drifting and Death Defying Stunts in a Subaru Rally Car


Ken Brock Does Donuts Around a Segway

You may or may not know the name Ken Block. If you haven’t heard his name before, he is a Subaru rally driver and co-founder of DC Shoes. He’s also the man who made a 171-foot jump in a Subaru Rally car. He is two things. First: an incredible driver. Second: utterly insane.

Here is an absolutely ridiculous video of Ken driving his 530WHP Subaru STi around the El Toro airfield in his Gymkhana car. Not only does he push his Impreza STi the very limits, but he does donuts around a guy who is riding a segway. Enjoy.

General Motors has just made the ZR-1 engine available as a crate motor, allowing you to drop it into a wide variety of vehicles. The LS9 is the most advanced and powerful V8 engine to ever leave the GM factory.  Here’s a cool video of the LS9 being assembled, tested and packed away into a crate.

An Underground Garage Would Be Perfect for Hiding Your Exotic Cars, No?


From Honda making everybody listen to the William Tell Overture to someone wrapping their entire car in automotive foil, we’ve had a lot of strange and funny stories come buy our desks and the creativity of some peoples projects are simply amazing.  I don’t know if you can really classify this as creative or just very James Bond-ish, but whatever you want to call it, there’s no denying that it’s cool.
