This was an accident that was caught on camera during filming for Top Gear Korea. Thankfully no one was seriously injured. The original challenge pitted presenter Kim Jin Pyo in a Corvette ZR1 against an AH1 Cobra helicopter in true Top Gear style.

The Lamborghini Estoque.


Lamborghini doesn’t usually build a concept car without it getting put to some kind of use in the future. It’s never happened, and we’ll place bets on the fact that it won’t ever happen. Try as they may to deny the fact that the Estoque would not see the production line, this concept vehicle stood a fantastic chance at becoming the third model in Lamborghini’s line-up.  To prove this theory, I found a recent statement from Chairman and CEO Stephan Winkelmann.  In the statement he confirmed that the company is indeed preparing a third model, and that this new model is not an SUV as people have speculated, but a four-door luxury sedan.

“We have opportunities outside the supercar business, and we showed that with Estoque. It had a more enthusiastic response than we had expected. It was the right time to see if the brand could go outside of supercars. Even now, people are still emailing me about us making the Estoque.”

And if the strong demand for a production version of the Estoque doesn’t make them actually build it, the recent success the company has been having on the Chinese market may just give Lamborghini the final push they need, especially since luxury four-door sedans are in high demand over there.

Miraculous BMW Drift Video.


On my vacation I made the acquaintance of a female street racer that made me reminisce on the ‘good old days’ of precision driving, and being able to push a car to its limits.  This video is a perfect demonstration of what I mean by pushing a car (and its driver) to the limits.  The 340bhp twin-turbo 3.0-litre straight-six (and that M3 rear differential) get a thorough workout in this video, posted by BMW Canada. I’m not clear on the advertising message, but it’s definitely worth a watch.

James May’s Lego House


At my house, on the few shows that spends most of its time on my television every day is Top Gear.  (The British version, not that weak U.S. version.)  During one episode, Jeremy Clark made a joke about a co-host – James May- building a nuclear submarine out of Legos, which I thought was quite a random comment.  But after looking for some exciting new Top Gear clips, I found out there was some truth the Jeremy Clark’s quip.  Until now, an entire dwelling made of Lego blocks was just a dream for lunatics and Lego futurists.   With the use of thousands of people and millions of bricks Mr May has built the worlds first Lego House. It has a bed, windows, two floors and a working shower and toilet. It looks amazing and is quite sick for someone who didn’t use instructions.

Lamborghini Reventon x Top Gear


As I am quite a bit of a car enthusist, it would only be logical that the British show “Top Gear” be one of my favorites.  So when I saw one of my dream cars on one of my favorite shows, I just felt the need to share it.  Check it out.
