I want to play this 8-bit video game version of The Fast and The Furious

The Fast & Furious movies today are fun, blood pumping action movies with a few car scenes spliced in. But the original movie that kicked it all off, The Fast and The Furious, was pretty much all about cars. This 8-bit racing game version sums the movie up pretty well. I would have loved to play this game as a kid. » 4/01/15 11:56am 38 minutes ago

A behind the scenes look at the insane stunts of Fast and Furious 7

Furious 7 is releasing this weekend which means all of mankind is about to have their eyeballs blasted (and brains removed for two hours) with the most insane special and practical effects that don't involve space or superheroes or space-based superheroes. Here's a quick cut of some behind the scenes footage of … » 3/31/15 2:54pm Yesterday 2:54pm

Really fun supercut has all the coolest car scenes in movies

Cars in movies, car chase scenes in action flicks and action flicks about cars and car chase scenes are almost always fun to watch. That's why cars like the DeLorean and movies like The Fast and the Furious live on forever in our memories. CineFix made an ode to all your favorite car scenes in this latest movie mashup. » 3/30/15 11:27am Monday 11:27am

Terrifying video shows just how distracted teens can be when they drive

Oh man, this video is absolutely horrifying. Put together by AAA, it shows how distracted teenagers are when they drive. You see drivers take their eyes off the road to text, people ignoring cars while they're on the phone and a lot of them just not paying attention at all. You get to see the side-by-side of what… » 3/26/15 3:14pm Thursday 3:14pm

7 things you didn't know about the funnest movie series: Fast & Furious

Depending on how fun you are at parties, the Fast & the Furious movie franchise got undeniably fun sometime during the 4th or 5th movie (or 1st for the furiously fast). And then they transformed into awesome heist movies with crazy special effects and a revolving door of big action movie stars. The 7th one is coming… » 3/23/15 7:36pm 3/23/15 7:36pm

This car parade of DeLoreans is the coolest thing

A prediction about the future that I'm pretty confident in making: this picture will be the best thing to come out of St Patrick's Day 2015. The photo, showing a line up of DeLoreans and a BTTF DeLorean caboose, was taken by BruceK and shows the DeLorean portion of the 2015 St. Patrick's Day Parade in Toronto. » 3/16/15 5:38pm 3/16/15 5:38pm

Fast & Furious 7 really freaking did drop cars from a C-130 airplane

The Fast & Furious movie franchise is consistently the most fun anyone can have in a movie theater because the stuff they do is completely ridiculous and borderline insane. Like do you remember that scene from the Furious 7 trailer where they dropped cars from an airplane? That wasn't CGI, that actually happened. » 3/12/15 7:59pm 3/12/15 7:59pm

This is what happens when an airbag deploys a hundredth of a second late

Here's a terrifying video that shows the importance of having an airbag that works as it's supposed to versus having an airbag that works... but is a hundredth of a second late. You see one watermelon drop in slow motion and get cradled by the deployment of an airbag versus another watermelon that explodes. » 3/10/15 5:14am 3/10/15 5:14am

Mad race driver drifting near a cliff on a mountain pass

Being inside a Porsche engine factory is like being inside a Transformer

This video is fascinating because it let's us pretend to be a fly on the wall of a Porsche 911 engine assembly line. There's no annoying soundtrack, no voiceover explaining what's happening, we're just seeing humans and machines teaming up to create beautiful, powerful engines that purr the best cars. » 12/23/14 9:06pm 12/23/14 9:06pm

Of course these are the most ridiculously insane cart stunts ever

If there's someone who mixes mad driving skills and overall madness level on equal parts, that's legendary driver Ken Box. Here you have him driving through a crazy cart course in case you needed more proof of how insane this dude is. » 11/26/14 12:08pm 11/26/14 12:08pm

Seeing machines build cars always makes me think we're in the future

I forget how cool the technology around us is sometimes. And then I get reminded when I see these giant machine robot arms make a car. It reminds of those futuristic scenes of sci-fi movies that make me wonder how come we're not advancing fast enough. Truth is, we really are. » 11/07/14 7:34pm 11/07/14 7:34pm

Tokyo is now like real life Akira

If you think Akira's glowing vehicles were just a fantasy coming from Katsuhiro Otomo's mind you are wrong. Bōsōzokus—biker gangs—existed before Akira and, as you can see in this video, they still drive their extravagant modified vehicles through the roads of Tokyo. » 11/06/14 11:31am 11/06/14 11:31am

This awesome roadster should be the new Batmobile

The new Batmobile for Batman v Superman is cool, but I wish we could go back to something lighter, less militaristic, and a lot cooler. The Vapour GT by Swedish design firm Gray Design is the car that I would like for a new Batman TV series that is more smart detective work and less brainless action. » 10/24/14 11:08am 10/24/14 11:08am

This is what happens when you put smart brakes in bumper cars

Here's one of those ads that make you go, "those damn consumerism pimping bastards actually came up with an annoyingly clever idea." Volkswagen outfitted bumper cars with its City Emergency Brake technology so that when you try and bump another car, the ultrasonic sensors would force the bumper car to brake and stop… » 10/14/14 11:33pm 10/14/14 11:33pm

Insane car crash somehow barely avoids hitting a group of bystanders

The first time I saw this video of a car crash during the Jolly Rally Valle d'Aosta 2014, I thought it was a scene from Final Destination. The second time I saw it, I thought it was some amateur fake. I've watched it multiple times now and I'm still not sure how the out of control, flipping car managed to avoid… » 10/06/14 10:04pm 10/06/14 10:04pm

This is why you should never tease dogs trapped inside parked cars

I've been spooked by dogs in parked cars plenty of times, but I never teased them. Unlike the guy in this short created by London-based animation house Birdbox Studios. At the end, he learns his lesson the hard way. Karma, people. It's a bitch. » 10/01/14 10:38am 10/01/14 10:38am

The cute animated history of the van

Though this animation bit is made by Mercedes Benz and probably goes through a little revisionist history on who invented the van (Benz says it was Benz), it's still a cute take on the history of such an important vehicle in the history of mankind. Yes, the van was and still is important. » 9/29/14 11:57pm 9/29/14 11:57pm

Here's a F1 car racing against a motorcycle racing against a supercar

For a second, you think hey maybe the motorcycle has a chance in this Top Gear bit since it screams to a lead but then the land-based jet machine insanity known as an F1 race car steps it up and the other two are fighting not to get lapped by the closest thing we have to a teleportation device on Earth. » 9/11/14 10:42pm 9/11/14 10:42pm

Cool disintegrating cars photos make me feel like a little kid

Fabian Oefner is a man of many talents—and great patience. Investigator, artist, photographer, his images are always precisely crafted and beautiful. His disintegrating car series are a great example. I just spent 20 minutes exploring them. He explains how he (painstakingly) made them here: » 9/11/14 1:09pm 9/11/14 1:09pm
