Recently I had the opportunity to see the new Audi RS6 C7 on the road and I was quite disappointed because the sound of the 4.0L V8 biturbo engine doesn't give justice to the remarkable performance. Let's face it, nowadays with the strict rules of the CO2 emissions and the downsizing of the engine, it's not easy for the car makers to develop a proper exhaust, that's why the market of the aftermarket components has become a great business for the companies.

The Texas Mile is a very popular and important event, it takes place twice every year and it always bring fast machines and records.

So, you're cruising and from the side mirror you spot a yellow Ferrari. Well, nothing strange you would say, it's always pleasant to see a Prancing Horse, but as it overtakes the camera car you realize there's something unusual. It's Banana Man!

During a rally stage, the roads are closed and nobody is allowed to drive, walk or do whatever you want on the road, and of course nobody would do that because it's extremely dangerous! Well, there are no words to describe this cyclist which seems not to give a crap about that he's riding nonchalantly his bicycle in the middle of a rally competition!

The editing, as well as the filming are very good. Also, we get to see the 'vette burning some rubber, is there anything better?! Definitely worth to watch!

Let's face it, the Launch Control device is kinda useless, it's basicly a posing device which makes you go faster at a light and at the same time it crunches the clutch and the tires, but somehow I think that it's absolutely awesome in its uselesness, especially on the Ferrari 599 GTO which unleashes roughly 660hp on the tarmac with a spectacular wheelspin!

How many times you heard the phrase " More money than sense " ? Well, this is another example of someone that has no clue of what he's doing.

This must be the first time on track for this guy and I'm sure he will never forget it for two reasons: the first because he's riding shotgun with one of the best track cars at the Nürburgring and second because he just has learnt one of the most important rules before going on track.. don't eat heavy food!

No wonder most residents of Knightsbridge hate supercars, especially the ones coming from Middle East. They tend to show off around the exclusive district of London all the time, and honestly as much as I love to hear them, I would be quite pissed to hear a 458 Italia (fitted with a bloody noisy Novitec Rosso exhaust) like this which keeps to the rev the engine to the limit for so long.
Everyone know that the Pagani Huayra is a very expensive hypercar, but now I advice you to take a seat and make a deep breath because the guys at The Supercar Kids managed to obtain a copy of the options list and if you think that with a starting price of 1 million euros everything is included, well you're wrong!

I have to admit that I'm not a champion of parkings, but this, this is just hilarious and unbelievable at the same time. The driver takes 4 minutes to exit this parking lot, but actually you get the feeling and anxiety like the driver will never get out of it because every time he attempts a maneuvre, everything just gets worse!

The german guys at Sport Auto have pushed to the limit the new Porsche 991 Turbo S, which is a very impressive car on the straight line! Its 3.8L twin turbo flat six produces 560hp and with launch control mode, the sprint of the Turbo S is even faster than a Lamborghini Aventador or a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta!

Powersliding a Ferrari must be great fun.. but doing it with an old school one is just something special! A wet track and a Ferrari F355, that's the right way to do it! To make it even better, the car is fitted with a catless Tubi exhaust, this configuration tells you how a proper Ferrari V8 engine sounds like!

The Ferrari F50 is one of those cars that are part of the family of Ferrari's most exclusive production cars, but at the contrary of its predecessors and successors (288 GTO, F40, F50 and Enzo) this one might be the most unsuccessful and underrated model and I wonder why, because whenever I hear the thunderous exhaust note coming out the F1-derived V12 engine (where would you find a road legal car with an engine like this nowadays?!), I just think that this is one of the most impressive road legal Ferraris ever made, which sadly I think that any other future Ferrari will be able to get so close in terms of emotions, sound and technology.

How many times you heard how dangerous the Nürburgring is? Every corner is blind and you don't really know what's after.. an accident? An oil slick? Just put yourselves in the shoes of this guy, he's doing an hot lap his Nissan GT-R around track and suddendly an eagle hits the windshield at 230kph, just in front of the driving seat!

When the Porsche Carrera GT came on the market in 2004, it was considered by many as a truly spectacular supercar.. and still is! The 10 years old design looks so fresh and clean, the sound and the power of the engine make this car so perfect that it's not necessary to change even a tiny bolt on this german masterpiece, and that's why this yellow Porsche Carrera GT might be a blasphemy.
