With the abundance of compilations showing the talent of our species, YouTuber Humansare2011 made a compilation representing other animals to balance things out. Of course ponies can’t actually moonwalk, but still.
The team over at Motor Trend has pitted the new Audi R8 V10 Plus against the Nissan GT-R. While both of the bright red all-wheel-drive supercars are comparably matched in power output, the similarities end there. Audi offers a mid-engine aluminum coupe with a naturally aspirated V10 that spits out 550 horsepower. Nissan shows up with a more traditional coupe equipped with a 545-horsepower twin-turbocharged V6 at the front of the car.
The Head-to-Head video takes both cars to the Streets of Willow Springs in the California desert for some track work with professional racing driver Randy Pobst behind the wheel. After a day at the track, the pair head to the local mountains for some spirited real-world driving. One dominates on the circuit, while the other earns back its credibility in the canyons. We won't tell you which coupe comes out on top, but we think you may be surprised. Follow the link below to watch for yourself.Permalink | Email this | Comments
A performance art piece done with a pair of ridiculously expensive programmable LED light sticks loaded with a variety of mesmerizing persistance of vision images. We love how he snuck Nyan cat in there. More here.
(NSFW: Language) Paul Scheer and Jordan Peele recreate an unreal segment from a 1993 episode of The Arsenio Hall Show. The actual interview is more meaningful than this absurd exchange would have you believe. But still.
Josh Turnbull, the 2-year-old son of Chelsea goal keeper Ross Turnbull took advantage of the goal that dear old dad left undefended after the final match of the season.
The upcoming version of the Volkswagen Golf R is nearly ready for prime time, if this video of the car flying around the Nürburgring is any indication. The all-wheel-drive R seems to make quick, neat work of the corners we see here, and sounds pretty devilish in the process.
Expectations are that the new Golf R will run a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (what else?), tuned to produce even more than the current car's 256 horsepower. (Some sources have indicated outputs as high as 286 horsepower, with 280 pound-feet of torque. It's still not clear if Volkswagen will bring the six-speed dual-clutch transmission to the US-spec Golf R in this next go-round or if we'll stick to having only... eh... the stick.
In either case - watching the video below will only whet your appetite for the new, highest performing member of the Golf family.Permalink | Email this | Comments
