In Saint Petersburg on Friday 11th, several concrete blocks collapsed from a building under reconstruction on the roadway, crushing parked cars. At least five cars were damaged. One man was in his car when the blocks fell down. One of them fell on his car trapping the man inside and causing him injuries.
The victim was taken to the hospital, his condition is serious.
FYI: the weight of one block is about two tons.
The hero of this story sold everything to buy a car of his dreams and to go on the journey of his life.
Read the full story further.
The driver of the automobile in these photos has a small problem. It seems that the car has hit what some might laughingly call a pothole. Pothole indeed, it took a crane to remove the vehicle. Well, the road upkeep in some countries just isn’t what it used to be.
The car in these photos is all about Disney. I don’t know if the guy who owns it plans to open a toy store with its contents but he certainly could. Every inch of the car is covered with something about Disney. Well, Walt Disney was something of a genius, so somebody should pay tribute to him.
Here’s how the owner of this Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder shows how many cars he beat during "urban races".
It actually looks nice.
A guy, named Gabe, built a Batmobile of a wrecked 1994 Pontiac Grand Am which he bought for $100. And what he got is the worst Batmobile the world has ever seen. Now he is trying to sell it for 600 bucks… Anyone is willing to buy it?
Here’s how the wreck looked like before it was “pimped”. Now let’s see how it looks today :)
Nice ride! The author gets my biggest respect :))
To evaluate the speed capabilities of this "supercar", look the video.
Don’t make a girl jealous, or it may lead to unpredictable consequences. This girl, for example, decided that a car packed near her boyfriend’s house belonged to his mistress. Well, she crashed and scratched that car, and, being pleased with herself, she went to catch the cheater. Imagine how surprised she was to find a good friend of her boyfriend instead of a lover. That friend drove his wife’s car to meet her boyfriend and discuss some issues with him. Now the “wild” girl has problems with the police.
I am sure that many people would dream about being given a supercar for a couple of days, just to test it. Well, this journalist from Canada got lucky to have a Porsche 911 Turbo for three days so that he could perform a test drive for his new article. Unluckily, the journalist's son was very curious to explore the car himself. When the kid started the engine, he didn’t know that the Porsche 911 Turbo had a mechanical transmission. You can guess what happened to the supercar…
It seems she was really in a hurry.
Everybody was shocked including herself ;)
Supercars also crash. However these supercars are more than “super”, because nobody was badly injured after they were wrecked!
Some Russian museums have strange collections. For example, this museum in Perm got an unusual masterpiece created by one Russian artist. If this is art, then it’s really atypical and odd.
Some people think that they can paint their car better than professionals would. Well, this often leads to such funny “tuning shows” as you will meet inside this post.
Maybe the Brabus Viano “Lounge Concept” doesn’t appear to be that luxurious at the first glance. But inside, this concept car really becomes the elite and powerful multi-use vehicle.
Quaranta concept was revealed by Italdesign Giugiaro in 2008. Two years after this car is finally spotted in… Rome, Italy as a taxi! Yes, Giugiaro Quaranta taxi that produces 268 horsepower and runs to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds! I would love to take THIS taxi if I ever go to Rome.
If you happen to pass thru the Russian suburbs on a train you might get to see a $450,000 Rolls Royce Centurion that has crashed on a railways sidewalk like a child’s unwanted toy.
This horrible car accident has supposedly occurred in Minsk, Belarus.
If you are thinking about changing the color of your car, you might find this post useful. Take a look at how the vehicle is being “tuned” with German foil. There is no need to re-paint your vehicle when you can wrap it using a new technology designed by Foilacar. It’s very easy.
Police found more than $1.1 million in cash inside the cars of crime king Alexander Surin (drug baron), nicknamed “Don Car-leone”. But the cash is not the interesting part, check out his cars!!
Only a part of his collection of exotic cars was seized in Switzerland and United-Kingdom after his arrest.
See more pics and details about his collection after the jump.
This parking attempt was very unsuccessful. I don’t want to sound offensive, but it feels that there was a dumb blonde behind the wheel :)
This is what happens when your foot accidentally gets stuck on the gas pedal.
These guys from China have made their own Lamborghini. The time has come for world known super cars being 'copy pasted' by the Chinese :)
Well, it's not perfect, of course ;)))
Smart cars are perfect for any city and town. They can be parked anywhere and they look nice and cute. I’d love to drive one of these alleged Smart cars with a Porsche, Ferrari or Lamborghini body kit.
James Haefner loves cars, especially the old ones. This is just a small collection of works created by this famous American photographer in his typical hyperrealism technology. All photos are beautiful.
Wild boars are common guests on German roads. They can run into traffic, thus automobile clubs conduct crash tests to see the impact of a collision with a horde of boards. The life-size models were attached to a rolling platform. The car smashed into boars at 62 mph (80 kilometers an hour) damaging the front. The passenger cell was untouched, so if this happens in reality, people inside the car will survive.
Hondabaru is a new type of car. As you might have guessed, Hondabaru has parts from both Honda and Subaru. This car was built by a 27-year-old guy named Yannik who had a Honda Civic, but always dreamt about a Subaru WRX. As he didn’t have money to get his dream car, he bought a battered Subaru for less than $2000 Canadian and laid the Honda Civic body on the WRX frame. He spent on his Hondabaru “mutant” $5300 Canadian in total. The car still needs to be finished, but you can take a look at it now.
Amazing freestyle motocross riders competed in Red Bull X-Fighters show in Mexico City. These guys are totally crazy and wild. Their extreme tricks are overwhelming and thrilling.
Airplanes also die, like people, and they rest in peace in cemeteries for decades. These photos of American airplanes were taken in Mojave Desert known as the biggest in the USA airplane graveyard. All photos were taken at night, but the lighting effects make them look fantastic!
