Published by on Jun 20th, 2014, No Comments

Porsche 911 Carrera S

Have we mentioned that we love the Drive channel on Youtube? Probably.

And today is no different. We also have a special place for a beautiful, newly built (and lets not forget super, super powerful) Porsche. This is why we are really excited about this video.

Matt Farah of the Drive channel takes the all new 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera S for a spin at the Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in California and really shows us what this beaut is capable of.

As per usual, we are insanely jealous but grateful enough to be able to see the car from up close; even if it is only on video.

Enjoy!

'57 Chevy Bel Air

So you’re probably wondering what is so special about a loving son gifting his father a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air for his 57th birthday. Well, the fact that this has been a promise between father and son for more the 20 years and the way in which the dad reacts, will show you exactly why.

A long time ago, an 8-year old boy made a special promise to his father; he said that he will give him his dream car for his 57th birthday one day. That car was none other than the stunningly classic, Chevy Bel-Air.

So the years went by and while the father didn’t expect a promise made by a young, innocent 8-year old boy to be kept, he had the surprise of his lifetime when he found out it was. (more…)

The Drive channel on YouTube always brings us the very best in automotive entertainment. They are responsible for great shows such as after Drive, Chris Harris (our favorite car guy) On Cars and Big Muscle – a show about, well, you know, big muscle cars.

Thanks to it’s immense popularity, Big Muscle has been running for four seasons, and you can just imagine how many great, big cars have been featured on the show.

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to drive really really fast on a motorcycle? Sure you have.

While many of us wondered what it would feel like, not everyone will actually muster up the courage to actually do it. Especially not if said motorcycle is going at an astonishing 275 kilometers an hour!

And, in the process, decided to film it in order to give people like us the opportunity to experience driving that fast from his point of view; you know, so it actually feels like you are holding on for dear life at the back.

R8

Have you ever wondered what it takes to build one of the world’s most sought after sportscars, the Audi R8? Well, perhaps you haven’t and all you really want is to own one – nevertheless, it would still be interesting to see how one is assembled, am I right?

The Drive channel on YouTube’s segment, Inside Quattro, takes you inside the famous Quattro GmbH where the R8 is assembled. This time around, they’re taking a look at the R8 V10 Plus, and what it takes to put one together. Just so you know, too.

The video is actually pretty interesting and will be well worth the watch for both all-round petrol heads as well as Audi fans.

MUSTANG IN SPACE

Well this is one way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the famous Ford Mustang – and it’s pretty out of this world (pun intended).

A group of friends – and undoubtedly heavy Ford enthusiasts – decided to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang in a very unusual way. The group, from the Big Valley Ford Dealership in California decided that they would like to commemorate the momentous occasion by sending a 2015 Ford Mustang into space.

Ok, to be fair, it’s not a life-size 2015 ford Mustang, but rather a small replica of the famous car. However, small or not, the experiment delivered some amazing footage. (more…)
