If you haven’t seen one on the road, they can be pretty rare, then you’ve definitely seen the Toyota Supra in movies, TV shows and on Shock Mansion. The Supra, last produced in August 2002, is arguably one of the most popular sports cars to come out of Japan. Starting with the Mark 1 in 1978 all the way to the Mark IV in 2002, the Supra was, and still is, a fan favourite among automotive enthusiasts.
During Saturday’s qualifying MotoGP event in Austin, rider Loris Baz had an amazing save in the final corner of the track. You can see how low he and his motorcycle were when he was turning, and it looked like he was surely about to lowside crash, but somehow he managed to get back upright, while also preventing a highside crash as his bike wobbled. In the photo you can see where he rubbed his shoulder on the ground!
“What do you do when 2 turbos, and 2,400 horsepower isn’t enough? ADD 2 MORE! That’s what these daredevils from Qatar have done with their 2012 Nissan Patrol! Upping the power to nearly 3,000 horsepower! We can only imagine what it would be like riding in a tall SUV packing 3,000hp. Unfortunately we were leaving Dubai 3 days before it was getting its first tune. But you better believe we’ll be back to see it next year!” – 1320video.
“I had a awesome day riding with a couple of friends, but I got a lil cocky when I swapped with my mate and tried his KTM300EXC for the first time. Little light bike and too many revs equals pain, chopper ride and hospital stay. I landed straight on my arse and broke 2 vertebrae, but I was lucky as was able to walk afterwards.”
In California’s Cajon Pass, a sedan became wedged under a truck and was dragged for four miles. The car was stuck under a tractor-trailer, while the truck driver continued to drive up the pass. The sedan’s driver can be seen waving his hands outside of the vehicle and shouting for help. Other drivers honked to get the trucker’s attention, although the trucker didn’t notice until another car got in front to stop the truck. Luckily, the sedan’s driver was uninjured. According to the California Highway Patrol, this crash is not considered a criminal incident.

“In the wet it’s easier to overtake,” F1’s youngest ever winner said nonchalantly afterwards. “I think it was a perfect race for me because then after [conditions improve] you go on the slick tyres, and you have passed most of the field already and you are basically back in the position where you should be.” And if not for the damp conditions at the start, where might he have finished? “Well, not third, for sure. Maybe sixth? They were good conditions for me…”

All hail the nearly indestructible 2JZ-GTE. It’s solid-deck and cast-iron engine block means even you’ll have a hard time blowing one to smithereens. Double its factory rated 320hp horsepower without so much as cracking its bottom end open. Forged internals, big single turbo, front-mount intercooler, and a couple more things. Prepare to eclipse the 1,000hp mark with nothing more than off-the-shelf parts and if we have to, overnight parts from Japan.
It was the first time Lucid had brought the car out for a high-speed run, and according to the company’s chief technical officer, Peter Rawlinson, the test was a success. “We’re really thrilled about the stability,” said Rawlinson at a press conference in New York. “The car is rock solid, was running consistently. Absolutely solid as a rock.” Rawlinson said he believes that if Lucid wants to be a true competitor to German luxury brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi, the Air will have to be able to keep up with those automaker’s top-line sedans when hustling down unrestricted sections of the German autobahn.
