World Record: Toyota GT86 134.8-mph Drift

Lunatic, Jakub Przygoński not only broke the world record for having the biggest testicals, but he has also just set the world’s fastest drift in his highly-tuned 1068-bhp Toyota GT86. With a mental entry speed of 159mph, the madman threw the car into a drift and slid sideways at 134.8mph at Airport Biala Podlaska near Warsaw, Poland.

Why Celebs Really Drive A Prius And Why We Shouldn’t


Bradley Cooper










To start off with I want to briefly dispel Toyota’s myth that the Prius is the planet-hugging car they claim it is. Before you actually take a closer look at the specifications, you may like the fact it gets good gas mileage, it isn’t too expensive and it’s hailed as an eco-friendly car. But when you decide to part with your cash and take a closer look, you’ll discover the Prius isn’t the most fuel efficient car, isn’t that cheap in comparison to some others and isn’t at all eco-friendly.

Because the Prius uses a Nickel-metal Hydride battery to store the electricity needed to power the electric motor when the petrol engine isn’t in use, around 390,000 tones of carbon dioxide were released into the atmosphere as a result of Nickel production last year.

Okay, so 51-mpg isn’t bad, but other manufactures are way ahead. Take the Volkswagen bluemotion, for example, its diesel engine managing a whopping  70-mpg. The VW is also significantly cheaper.

With those FACTS out of the way I want to touch upon those annoying celebrities who claim they are green and eco-aware because they drive around town in their Prius. It’s as though they are saying, “Look at me, I have millions of dollars yet I will ostentatiously trundle around town in this average car for average people and help save the planet.”

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus

I can list at least 20 Hollywood celebs that do this – I wonder how many have Range Rover Sports and the odd muscle car tucked away, too? Celebs usually care about image, but I’m sorry, this car isn’t cool or trendy in any way.

Are you seriously telling me Miss Cyrus and her onstage antics and her hardcore twerking really drives the Prius to help the environment, or is it because it’s a kind of trend in Hollywood? Hmm.

Cameron Diaz, Sarah Jessica Parker, Adrian Grenier, Kate Bosworth, Larry David, Gwyneth Paltrow, Miley Cyrus, Rachel Bilson, Leonardo Dicaprio, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Alba, Claudia Schiffer, Owen Wilson, Orlando Bloom, Emily Blunt, Julia Roberts, Dustin Hoffman, Natalie Portman, Kate Hudson, Kirsten Dunst: Stick to expensive cars; it’s what’s expected of you.


Fast & Furious Paul Walker Visits Japan & Godzilla

Paul Walker gained massive recognition from the first installment of Fast & Furious as Brian O’ Conner. On screen his constant abuse of Japanese cars eventually rubbed off on him, and despite once having no interest in JDM, he’s now added a few to his collection of cars that range from an Escort Cosworth to a rare lightweight BMW M3.

A very nice Supra takes up a spot in his collection alongside an R33 Nissan GTR and a Datsun 240Z.

In this video we see a very excited Paul Walker in Japan at the wheel of one mad R35 Godzilla GTR.


Road Going Le Mans Car… Sort Of

Now this is one British car that immediately grabbed my attention, a Le Mans-based racer with a power-to-weight-ratio similar to a Ferrari F50 and actually more than a Maserati MC12. The best bit? For £90,000, you can actually drive it on the road.

Hard to believe when you look at the thing – it’s aggressive, poised, built for pure racing and speed. The front arches, headlights and gaping air ducts will look a little out of place when you drive to the Post Office to renew your tax disc, but in a good way I suppose.

British makers Radical claim it has the capacity to produce 50 of these RXC rockets every year.

The 380-bhp 900-kg lightweight’s initial concept came four years ago when looking at the Peugeot Le Mans car.

The heart powering this savage is a 3.7-L V6 from a Ford Mustang, the 380-bhp combined with its 900-kg giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 422hp per tonne. This engine will be mated to a seven-speed Quaife gearbox with paddle shifters driving the rear wheels and helping to propel the RXC from 0-100km/h in just 2.8 seconds – that’s not just stupid fast, it’s grab the Xanax fast. If that wasn’t silly enough, Radical claim they will introduce an even lighter V8 engine from the Mustang with 500-bhp!


Ferrari Back For Le Mans?

I now have another reason to watch the 24 hours of Le Mans, as my favourite racing team are rumoured to be back. In 2015, Ferrari are looking at competing in the top LMP1 category. Porsche have also made a comeback, and with Audi always winning, it will be great to see the two legends try and put a stop to it.

Ferrari haven’t raced in Le Mans since 1973, and the last time they won there was in 1965. Just look at the difference between their 330 P3 to their 2015 concept. Has it really been that long?


WTF Is Donk?

When someone turns a classic American car into a donk, they are doing the equivalent of sending a kid to school with the wrong gym trainers – whilst all the other kids are wearing Nike, the poor soul has to make do with some mediocre brand.

What is wrong with people these days? Why is this acceptable and why in buggery are people actually copying this trend?

It’s apparently popular in New Orleans, Memphis or Miami as a response to the West Coast’s car scene. The West Coast slam their cars and call them Low Riders – this I can understand because a slammed Impala does look cool; however, putting 50″ rims on a car is just plain stupid.


How To Donk A Car:

Buy a potentially stunning classic such as a ’64 Impala, and instead of perhaps lowering it slightly, do the complete opposite to the extent of the car needing rims the size of ferris wheels. You won’t be able to drive fast, the engine will have to work harder, and you’ll ultimately look like a complete ******** ******.


I want to hurt the person who did this to a Corvette. I feel genuine concern and can understand this poor car’s embarrassment every time it has to leave its garage. A fast performance car that should sprinting down a highway reduced to having to tip toe everywhere.

It looks stupid, it’s wrong, the Hip Hop scene are all wrong, I’m right, stop doing it.


1985 Ferrari Mondial Quattrovalvole

Although it’s not uncommon to see 80s Ferraris, it’s usually the 308s or the 328s that make up most of the numbers. This 1985 Mondial Quattrovalvole jumped off the screen at me because you never see them, especially the Quattrovalvole in this trim, and for the year, it does look very similar to the F355 – maybe because it wears the 355’s wheels?

But why was I looking at Ferraris on eBay?

I wanted to see if I could find a genuinely solid and clean example for the price of a brand new Ford Focus ST (£26,000). It was starting to look fairly bleak with the usual undesirables such as the 400 and the bland version of the Mondial cropping up.

Like any cars, the mileage reflects the price, but with these ponies, an extra 20K on the clock will set you back more than a few grand. For my target price, the brilliant F355 is possible, although with high miles (above 50,000), as was the ugly and cumbersome 550 Maranello.

And the car pictured? £15,500. There are a few cosmetic problems to attend, but throw a few thousand at it and you are left with a rather handsome and exotic car. Although mileage isn’t listed, it states £30,000 has been spent, so I imagine the majority of this comes from servicing and an annual engine service (today’s price around £1000) plus a few clutches.

“Quattrovalvole” translates as “four valves” and this particular model of the Mondail received a new four valve head, and the combustion chamber design was based on the early eighties Formula 1 engine.

Once the body has been professionally finished, this Ferrari would make for a great weekend summer car. Imagine driving your own Ferrari to the song of its howling V8… and all in for around £20,000.
