The movie is still months away from hitting theaters, but the anticipation surrounding the Niki Lauda-inspired movie "Rush" is becoming more and more palpable by the day.

Last week, we saw the first trailer of the movie starring Spanish-born German actor, Daniel Brühl, playing the role of Niki Lauda and Chris Hemsworth playing the part of rival James Hunt. It was, in a word, riveting.

This week, the second trailer for "Rush" was released and if you loved the first one, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be equally in love with the second trailer. It’s longer, for one, and it gives us a better idea regarding the story of the movie and how it turned both Lauda and Hunt into far more than just fierce rivals.

Let’s face it; the greatest F1 rivalry will always be Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost, but if there was a 1A, it would be Niki Lauda and James Hunt.

Rush, which was directed by Ron Howard, tells the story of the duo’s interlinked history.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
