Unloading failures can happen in real life too. This mishap took place at Ernie Boch, a luxury car dealership at Norwood near Boston. The trailer loading mechanism failed and the spanking new Ferrari sports car came down with a thud. This failure is going to cost a fortune to the insurance company.
There are some hot new interiors making the automobile scene. Apparently anything goes including wild designs and even wilder colors. Reds, pinks, orange, and fuchsia are all in along with leather and speciality vinyl. I like it and think it will put some of the fun back in driving.
Jay Leno is an American stand up comedian and television host and is quite popular in United States. He is also the owner of an enormous car collection. He owns cars from every walk of life and era and some that are very rare. His collection includes such rarities as Lamborghini Countach, an Owens Magnetic, a Bentley Speed Six, and a Shelby Mustang 350 GT. He also owns a rare EcoJet which is a truly unique car of which only one model was ever manufactured. Its conception sketch was drawn on a napkin by its designers. You can see more pictures after the jump.
It seems that people will never learn that driving drunk is not that a good idea. The driver of this truck was drunk and run over a Mercedes with a couple in it. But not only they survived, they only got a few bruises.
Everything can happen on the roads, someone can scratch you or you can get dings on your car, then you need to do some straightening, put some paint etc. And this can cost you a lot. So this guy used “another approach to solve the problem.” On one hand, after what he’s done to his car he will need services of an auto repair shop rarely than others but from the other hand he just spoiled the car…
Gunbus is the world's largest bike for the roads. A man of average height standing next to a Gunbus looks very… modest. Its engine is of 6.72 liters and of 350 HP! Bike’s tires in size and shape can be comparable to those of planes. By the way, the price strikes too - 250 thousand Euros! Well, now let's look at this monster.
In the west of Sydney on a parking lot, a woman confused the car gears and crashed through a brick wall. Unfortunately for her, she was hospitalized, the car was towed to a pound and someone will have to repair the wall.
A modest car mechanician from Kazakhstan got one of the most expensive and prestigious cars in the world - the Rolls-Royce Phantom. The guy told that this idea came to him a few years ago, when sitting in the library, he saw photos of this supercar in a car magazine. Spending a total of 3 thousand dollars, the master turned an old Mercedes in the legendary vehicle.
Apparently, thieves in Vietnam steal everything they can, event the smallest parts of the cars. So, car owners had to ‘reinforce’ some elements of their cars to make it impossible for thieves to steal. Take a look..
We have a double post on limos today. We’ll start with the Audi Q7 limo. Royal Luxury has a new limo in its store to rent. It’s an Audi Q7 limo with a ‘jet door’. It can host 16 passengers and to take their words, it’s “the ultimate in luxury and convenience.” One will have to spend $500 for a 3-hours ride…
You will also see inside the post the making of a Range Rover limo…
All the cars you will see in this post crashed in 2009 and the least expensive one costs $165,000!! Lots of bad luck or bad drivers, you choose… Anyway, lots of wrecked supercars await you inside the post.
Not always winter tires and advanced braking systems are a “panacea” for slippery roads, especially when it comes to Chinese cars ;) Look at the pictures inside the post with another victim of winter roads.
This horrible accident took place in Athens, Greece. According to police report, the Audi R8’s driver fell asleep at the wheel and the car drove off the road hitting the guardrail. This guardrail passed through the Audi - it entered in the left wheel and came out on the right side through the rear window. The driver was seriously injured at both legs and was rushed to the hospital. His girlfriend was lucky, she only had a couple of scratches.
P.S. Below you’ll see two similar cases with Ladas.
It was a close shave for photographer Andy Willsheer the other day at Pomona Raceway in California as a drag racing car crashed into the barrier he was standing behind! The fearless guy kept on taking photos despite the danger.. Luckily, the vehicle landed just feet away from the photographer, who escaped unharmed. Now, let’s contemplate those great and unique shots!
There’s nothing special about this Dodge Colt, well almost... It is stuffed with all sorts of accessories that cost a lot more than the car itself. The only question is: why did he need to do all this?
We have already posted the photograph of this car in our Picdump, but now we know all the details and want to share them with you :) This "Maniwa" was produced not by a car company, but by a small furniture factory Sada. The sports car has three wheels and three seats. The car was built by hand and consists almost entirely of wooden parts, even its rims are made of wood. The car can reach 80 km/h. But the main advantage of "Maniwa," is its design without a doubt. The interest in the Japanese wooden design is huge, Sada is already taking plenty of orders for this wooden sports car, demanding for their services a little less than 44 thousand dollars. And now, let’s look at the photos.
These photos are very impressive! Those are the consequences of a leaking acetylene bottle which was stored in a plumber’s van. The bottle was accidently ignited when the remote door lock device was activated.. Look at the mess after the jump!
It’s just lights taped to a truck – but no less than 3000 lights! The idea is simple and the result is cool. It’s hideous in daytime because the tape and cables are visible, but it’s really amazing at night.
This is a Zonda Roadster F produced by Pagani in Italy. It got into an accident in Hong Kong and this is the third time a Pagani is crashed there. Just to remind you, Pagani Zonda F reaches 100 km/h in 3,4 sec and 200 km/h in 9,6 sec. It takes only 2.1 seconds to stop completely if it goes at the speed of 100 km/h and if you brake at 200 km/h - 4,3 seconds! Its cost is only €1,460,000...
