Another great photo post from our visitor Richard with pics of car adverts from the ‘60s and ‘70s.
A transporter packed to capacity with a variety of luxury cars (Mercedes-Benz CLK 500, Mercedes-Benz S-Class W221, Ferrari 458 Italia, BMW M5, Porsche 356 and Nissan GT-R) caught on fire while on the road in Sierra Blanca, Texas, USA. The damage was estimated at a whopping $600,000 and the suspected cause of the fire is brakes or bearings that overheated. The driver of the truck fled the scene before the police arrived and is now wanted for questioning.
Mišo Kuzmanović is a motor sport fanatic and a skilled mechanic from Bosnia who has spent two years building a Formula One car from scratch. He has spent over $30,000 and 1000 hours on the project and has done most of the work himself. The handmade vehicle can seat two passengers and can reach a top speed of 155 miles per hour (250 km/h).
This 1984 Toyota Tercel 4WD was used during the production of "breaking Bad" and is on sale in New Mexico. The sale price for this particularly rusty Toyota could be significantly higher than market value (roughly $500).
Yesterday we posted some pics of the new Lamboghini Veneno, which is a truly amazing new car. But the “LaFerrari”, Ferrari’s newest release unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this year, may be even cooler! This supercar has an 800hp engine and can go from 0-100 miles per hour in under 3 seconds. Which one would you choose?
It is called the Ripsaw, a developmental unmanned light tank built by the Howe brothers in 2000 as a small family project. It is able to accelerate to 60 mph (100 km/h) in about 4 seconds. The vehicle caught the interest of the U.S Army in 2001 during a Dallas vehicle show. The Ripsaw can be built for about $200,000 - $250,000.
