Based on the cars alone, the 24th James Bond film, Spectre, is set to be one of the biggest and most impressive in the long-lived franchise. While we’re stuck waiting until November to see the automotive extravaganza on the big screen, a lucky bystander managed to catch two of the movie’s four-wheeled stars filming on the streets of Rome.

A massive effort by Pulse Performance Race Engineering through December and January has brought Mad Mike Whiddett’s RADBUL Mazda MX-5 project to within days of completion. Following on from the build of the roadster’s custom four-rotor, twin turbo 26B rotary engine, PPRE’s engineers worked day and night to finalise the chassis, driveline, suspension, brake and steering modifications, before dropping the motor into the bay and readying it for its very first fire-up. That honour, of course, was left to Mad Mike himself.

With all that displacement and a frame that’s even lighter than your average motorcycle, we’re willing to bet that this beast flies.
A cabdriver’s quick reflexes and composure helped him survive after being ambushed and shot at six times by 2 black guys in a North Las Vegas neighbourhood. It also helped that an ambulance just happened to be at the truck stop the wounded cabbie drove himself to. The victim is expected to survive. Tough old bastard. It’s gonna take more than a couple punkass bitches to put him down. Get well soon old man.
Four university friends from New Zealand had listed their beaten and broken 1957 Series I Land Rover, christened ‘The Landy’, for sale on an auction site, following 15 years of ownership. The listing told the story of their many adventures and their sorrow at parting with their beloved Land Rover.

GTEK Australia captured this amazing footage of Matthew Power’s T4TUFF burnout at the Summernats Liqui Moly Burnout Masters.

The clip was recorded with no sound – so that’s why there’s a music track, in case you were wondering.
