  • Watch the new Focus RS in crazy oversteer mode

    Judging by the level of anticipation around its release, the Focus RS is going to be one hell of a hot hatch. Ford provided further proof that this might be the case with a video showing the RS blasting around its Lommel Proving Ground. The video features plenty of oversteer, along with some more oversteer, all set to the tune of an exhaust that sounds like it wouldn't be out of place in the background of an epic metal track. Ford's also confirmed that the Focus RS will be equipped with a special 2.3-litre EcoBoost power unit engineered to...

  • Marvel at how the world’s best racing crews perform pit stops

    The drivers might get all the glory, but there's more than a little artistry to the work done by their pit crews. Often highly qualified professionals with years of experience behind them, their work can save a driver the fractions of a second needed to claim victory in a race. But as this video shows, not every racing code is the same. Formula 1, with its 14-member pit crew teams is obviously the fastest. But it's also the easiest on the eyes, with the mechanics moving in a kind of choreographed ballet. IndyCar is also pretty impressive and NASCAR...

  • Samsung’s testing a ‘Safety Truck’ to help motorists

    If you have ever tried to overtake a large truck, you understand the fear and danger that follows, especially if you car's engine is a cute and cuddly 1.5 liters or less. This is all about to change. Well not your car's engine, but the danger involved with these truck encounters, thanks to Samsung. Yup, that's right, the South Korean electronics giant has flipped the switch and is now providing motorists with one of the most valuable super powers known to any childhood, x-ray vision.  Well, not exactly x-ray vision but at least the ability to see what's in-front of big-rig...

  • Watch the Koenigsegg One:1 smash the 0-300-0 record

    It's a little surprising that a country as staid as Sweden has produced an automotive brand as insane as Koenisegg, but we should be eternally grateful that it did. The supercar maker recently provided fresh proof of that by taking the Koenegsigg One:1 from zero to 300km/h and back to zero again in record time. Okay, it wasn't official, like when its Agera R set is own 21.19 seconds record 2011. Still, watching the One:1 make the run in just 17.95 seconds is pretty impressive. You can only wonder at the forces that must have been acting on test...

  • 45 years of Range Rover come together in anniversary video

    If you want to climb every mountain and ford every stream in total luxury, there aren't many options out there better than a Range Rover. But while the brand may now be a byword for luxury, that hasn't always been the case. Want proof? Look no further than the video Range Rover's released to mark the brand's 45th anniversary. The video, which features everything from the very first Range Rover to the current fourth generation model, launched in 2012. The first Range Rover, while slightly more comfortable than Land Rovers of the time, was still pretty utilitarian. In...

  • Watch as this smartphone remotely drives a Range Rover

    Remember that scene from Tomorrow Never Dies, where Bond drives his BMW by remote control? Well it looks like Jaguar Land Rover is on the path to making it a reality, albeit in a much slower and more controlled form. The British company has announced the launch of a system that could see future drivers able to remotely drive their vehicles using their smartphones. It's pretty cool, although you won't be using it to escape from international super-villains any time soon. Instead Jaguar Land Rover's system is designed to help off-road drivers over tricky terrain and ordinary drivers out...

  • The Volvo Epic Split team’s latest venture? A reality TV series

    How do you follow up one of the most iconic ads of all time? What could you possibly do that would match the poise and beauty of Jean Claude van Damme performing an epic split between two Volvo trucks? Well apparently you film an eight-episode reality TV show starring one of the drivers from that ad, a Swedish-American pop singer, and her best friend. The show, called Reality Road features singer Mapei, director Liza Minou Morberg, ‘Epic Split’ driver Jens Karlsson, and miniature schnauzer Sushi travelling across Europe as they try to film a music video. Over the course...

  • New F1 game looks insanely realistic

    If you're the kind of person who puts their life on hold every couple of weeks during the Formula 1 season, then you might want to take a look at this. UK game developer Codemasters has released a teaser trailer for its news F1 2015 game and it very much looks set to appeal to fans of the racing code. Among the new features are new mechanics and car control as well as added realism. According to Carscoops, those parts of the game which haven't completely been rebuilt from the ground up have also been given a makeover with...

  • This is definitely how not to test drive a bright blue Audi [video]

    There are many ways to test drive a car. We can understand if you have a heavy foot on open roads, but it's important to remember that it's all fair game within reason. Sadly, there's no reason to be found in this video at all. Test driving an Audi must be one hell of a thrill, especially considering this car's manic powerplant with well over 500bhp accessible at the lights. Fast cars don't breed good drivers, and this video is just another glimpse into the real terrible drivers on the tarmac. This particular chap decided that his insurance premiums were just...

  • Watch this Koenigsegg One:1 tear up Suzuka [video]

    Swedish car company Koenigsegg doesn't really know the word "moderation." It's range of supercars are indeed as super as they can get, and well, the One:1 is about the craziest of the lot. So what if you were to set one down on the start finish straight of Japan's Suzuka circuit? Absolute brilliance. It set set the unofficial lap record of one of the world's fiercest circuits and, well, made a right mess of its brakes and tyres. How fast you ask? Try a 2:17.57 -- only 40 odd seconds slower than Kimi Raikkonen's lap record time in 2005. The previous...

  • This virtual reality game wants you to stop texting while driving

    There are few activities that are plain stupid to attempt while driving. Texting and driving is one of these. While drink driving is a more maligned offense, texting and driving is something probably every smartphone owner has done at least once while behind the wheel. It's no less dangerous either, and this virtual reality game, aptly dubbed SMS Racing, is aiming to prove this. The only problem is, it's quite entertaining. Although it's hilarious (the elevator music doesn't help either), it uses the glory of Samsung's GearVR headset to depict the average run to the shop, and how replying to a message...

  • Tag Heuer ad will make you yearn for vintage F1

    You aren't going to learn much by watching this video. There are no revelations about new racing technology, no scoops, no magical pieces of software. But gosh is it beautiful. The video sees McLaren F1 drivers Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso taking the wheel of a contemporary F1 car and the legendary Ayrton Senna's MP4/4 and thrashing them around a track. Combine the far more exciting sounds of the MP4/4 with Senna's voice philosophically overlaid on sections of the footage and you get something that results in some pretty conflicting emotions. Part of you will reminded at the astonishing...

  • Ferrari fans, you may want to sit down for this [video]

    For fans of a particular marque, there's nothing quite as enjoyable as seeing all its iconic cars duke it out on tracks. If you are a Ferrari fan and happened to be near Fiorano recently, you would've seen something a little like this. The company has crafted some brilliant hypercars in the past, and one lucky chap who has had a taste of every one is Dario Benuzzi -- Ferrari's principle test driver since 1969. So, to honour the man's stellar work, Ferrari sent him out to lap Fiorano in the Ferrari F40, F50, Enzo and LaFerrari, one after the other....
