I like this thing! This is one of those rare occasions where a customized import actually looks pretty damn good. It looks as though the owner started out with a Honda Civic hatch and then decided to give it the full-on Bugatti Veyron treatment, which, in some strange way really works. Granted the wheels still have to be color matched, but the overall execution is downright cool. Who knows, maybe Bugatti should take some queues from this guy if they ever decide to go the Aston Martin Cygnet route and build a budget Bugatti.

Need for Speed, Gran Turismo and Dirt. All driving games that pride themselves on realism, advanced graphics and physics engines that will make you swear you’re behind the wheel of your favorite ride. In the past Gran Turismo was the undisputed king of the drivers, however over time Turn 10 Studios has been quietly updating and massaging their Forza Motorsport franchise to the point where it has not only surpassed Gran Turismo, but blown it clean out of the water. I’ve been playing it now for a solid week and the only downside I can find is that it’s simply making my days go by way too quickly. Combine that with their online play, full automobile customization features, and community aspects and you’ve got yourselves a driving game that, in my humble opinion, has no equal. Gametrailers.com recently conducted a full review of Forza 4 covering presentation, story and game play with the results being two big thumbs up!

For those of you who aren’t aware, the cow is not the most intelligent species in the animal kingdom. Sure they’re cute when they’re small and they taste great when grilled over an open flame, but for the most part they were put on this earth for us humans to make hamburgers out of. Now I don’t know much about the art of rounding up bovine, but based upon what I’ve seen in this video it’s apparent that all I need is a pick-up truck to sit in, a cup of coffee to drink from and a small remote control car to herd the beasties. Hell, if I knew that knowing how to operate an old RC10 was all that I needed to qualify to be a cowboy, then I would’ve put my application in years ago. Click through for the video.

For some people the idea of riding a scooter is a little demoralizing. I mean let’s face it, most guys would rather have a motorcycle, but sometimes economics, space or skill simply prevent this from happening. What most people don’t realize though are that the scooters are the real winners here. They’re compact, narrow and with a little work, can be made to be very quick. They’re also perfect for things like splitting lanes, parking and oh yeah… ripping up the neighborhood skate park. This is Boulon, the funny looking Frenchman who enjoys causing havoc where most scooter pilots would never dare tread. His ride of choice is a 50cc Vespa that looks to be primarily stock except for a set of modified handlebars. Now granted, his skill is nothing compared to someone like Travis Pastrana, but you’ve got to admit it’s pretty cool watching this guy put the little Vespa through its paces. Video after the jump!

Let’s see. We’ve got three people, one motorcycle, no safety gear and a busy stretch of road. Yeah… this should end well.

Left alone the 1960 Chevrolet Corvette is one of the most attractive cars ever created. It’s America’s favorite sports car and in its day, was quite a sight to behold on the open road. Time and technology however have passed it by and unfortunately for the old Vette’s from 1953-1962, so have most people. There is one company out there though who decided to go full-tilt with the old dog and by gosh if they didn’t create one of the baddest Corvettes on the planet Earth. Recently Matt Farah got a hold of the 3G Corvette that was lovingly crafted by the boys over at Art Morrison. It took 3200 man hours to build, has an entirely new chassis and perfect 50 / 50 front to rear weight distribution. Combine that with a rancorous V8 that pumps out 538 hp and you’ve got a car that is simply outstanding. Click through for the video and watch as Mr. Matt giggles his way through a tire smoking test drive.

For some reason I’m drawn to cars with a mechanical look and feel. They are, for all intents and purposes, easier to understand and offer a better driving experience in my opinion. Take the now 24 year old Ferrari F40 for example. When released it had a fully exposed carbon fiber interior, no power steering, sound deadening materials and or car stereo. It was raw and built for one purpose only… to go fast. Now look at the 2011 Ferrari 599. It has every modern accoutrement one could ask for. From satellite navigation, to traction control, to a fully customizable interior, the new 599 is like riding in the Taj Mahal as compared to the F40′s Comfort Inn digs. So why is it then that if you ask just about any real Ferrari enthusiast, they’ll tell you that the F40 is a better car then the 599. My guess is simple… it has soul. Click through for the video and decide for yourself.

What you are about to see is the new trailer for Forza Motorsports 4. Its quality is that of a feature film, and its message is one that is aimed solely at us car folk. If you’re a true car enthusiast then you know that horsepower, torque and top speed figures are things that are frowned upon by society. Law makers see these numbers as demonic symbols of freedom and politicians see them as things that need to be squashed in order for them to get reelected. For car guys like us though, high horsepower, high octane machines of any kind will always get our blood pumping. On October 11th, Turn 10 Studios will bring us Forza 4, the newest edition in the Forza Motorsport franchise. We should be receiving our copy soon, so make sure you stay tuned for a full review.

There have been a lot of goofy automobile ads over the years but this new one from Lotus ranks up there amongst the best. Apparently Lotus wanted to show us how their new 345 hp, 2012 Exige S has more agility than a professional boxer. To do this they’ve enlisted the services of a professional drifter, an athlete and a large skid-pad. Even though I don’t necessarily agree with the concept, I have to say that watching a Lotus put on a full-on drift show is pretty damn cool… Hokey mind you, but cool.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could buy a performance car that got 500 miles to a tank of fuel, or an SUV that could go for 700? Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one that wishes every car made came with a bigger fuel tank. Right now the average size of a tank for a mid-sized to large car is 16-19 gallons. Automakers choose these sizes because their goal is for you (the consumer) to get about 300 miles in combined driving out of a fill-up. That means that whether you drive a Prius or a Ferrari, you’re still going to the pumps after about 5 hours of driving. Sure, some cars (diesels especially) will pull more, but for the majority of us that means hitting the pumps at least once a week. Now don’t get me wrong, I understand automakers are restricted by space, safety regulations and performance, but wouldn’t it be great to only have to fill up once a month? Who knows, maybe I’m going about it all wrong and should simply buy a clean diesel. The fact of the matter is though, I want to know how I can get my performance and range in one happy little package.
