Husqvarna Norden 901: We’ve Started, So We Might As Well Finish
The fourth video instalment of Husqvarna’s Norden 901 introduction. As they go on, they get more and more arty and largely irrelevant. This one introduces us to Mike Horn, explorer extraordinaire, who was employed to film the bike in some godforsaken country, which just looks cold and uninviting, if not bleakly beautiful. Isn’t it time we got introduced to the bike and not every single person who worked on the project?
English Engineer Builds Famous Six Cylinder Honda Classic Race Bike from scrap
What does the man who has built a V12 Kawasaki, a V8 Kawasaki and a Dodge Viper-engined motorcycle choose for his next project? How about a replica of a six-cylinder Honda race bike from the 1960s? And when we say ’build’, we really mean that; he makes his own six cylinder engine out of two four-cylinder engines, including building up his own crankshaft and making his own clutch, along with everything else. It’s a remarkable feat of engineering, carried out in a shed in his garden. The man is Allen Millyard and you really need to watch his videos if you think you know about engineering!

A Ferrari F8 Tributo Has to Cheat to Beat Ken Block’s Hoonicorn
If you were to run a BMW M2 against a Shelby GT350, which do you think would win? Well, throttle house decided to do just that and put them through the paces on the track and in a drag race to see which one was actually better. In one corner, the BMW M2 is capable of putting out 365 horsepower and a sprint to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, thanks to a 3.0-liter inline-six. In the other corner, we have the Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 that pumps out 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque from a 5.2-liter V-8. On paper, the Mustang should kill the M2 all day long running a cylinder down. But, it’s not always so cut and dry as you’ll see in the video below. Go ahead and click play, then sit back and enjoy the action!
Drag Race Battle - Ferrari 812 Superfast Versus Tesla Model X P100D
On paper, an SUV should have no business competing against a supercar in a drag race. But the cars in question, a Ferrari 812 Superfast and a Tesla Model X P100D, aren’t exactly too far apart in the performance category. One produces 588 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque, while the other has 790 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque on tap. Line them side-by-side on a drag strip and the question of who wins isn’t as ridiculous as it sounds. In the end, such a race took place at the Drag Times home track of Palm Beach International Raceway. As for which car won? Watch the video and find out.
Video of the Day: 2020 McLaren 750 LT Testing On the Nurburgring
You didn’t think that McLaren was done making long tails, did you? Well, in case you did, we’re here to tell you that you thought wrong. The McLaren 720S is set to be the next model to be given the long tail treatment, and it should go by the 750S name. The name alone reveals that it should have some 750 PS (around 740 horsepower) which means it’ll deliver around 30 horsepower more than the 710-horsepower 720S. The particular model in this video is clearly a 720S that’s been converted for testing purposes, so it lacks some of the typical long tail aero, but there’s no denying that this is a mule for the 750 LT.
This becomes painfully obvious thanks to the more dominating splitter and sharp canards on the front fascia for increased downforce in the front. The rear is pretty void of any changes, but there is a roll cage inside. That roll cage won’t make it to the production model and is only there to protect the testing engineers in case something should go wrong as this baby tears ass around the Nurburgring as seen in this video. Expect the new 750 LT to be lighter, faster, and more track worthy than the 720 or the now-discontinued 675 LT.
And, since we know you’re curious about when we’ll see the official production model, word has it that we’ll see it at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show and it will be part of the automakers new Super Series lineup. But, we know you’re anxious to see the new 750 LT in action, so check that out in the video below!
Video of the Day: Extreme Ultimate Retarded Driver Fails
It seems like every day there is a new compilation of idiot drivers causing bad accidents. This one is from June of 2017, but it’s one we’ve never taken a look at before. You’ll see the usual stuff – people driving too fast and not being able to negotiate turns to people running red lights because something is more important than the lives of other people on the road. There is even a fun little bit where a motorcycle rider flips off a cop and gets a small dose of karma almost instantly afterward. All that and more is in the 11-minute video below. Go ahead and click play to enjoy the shenanigans for yourself.
We’re not sure what it is, but there’s just something about guys that own big diesel trucks. Whether it’s the “better-than-you” attitude or the “I can conquer all” mindset, they are almost always driving like a douche or getting into something they probably shouldn’t be during. There’s a lot of that in this video. Guys failing at off-roading, playing tug of war, or having their trucks ripped apart as they are pulled out of mudholes that should have never been ventured into in the first place. If you are one of these guys, don’t worry, we don’t hate you. We just like to make fun of you – just like the guys in supercars and mustangs. Go ahead and click play and enjoy the video.
Tesla Model S Driver Rams Into A Nissan SUV Despite Autopilot’s Warning
This is the latest Autopilot crash; but it wasn’t the system’s fault. A couple, who was too busy engrossed in something else other than focusing on the road, rear-ended a Nissan SUV despite the system warning and chiming its brains out. How can one trust a machine blindly?
The Hoonigans Go Deep With Cleetus McFarland’s Insane ’Vette Kart: Video
How about stripping a Chevrolet Corvette down, strapping in a 7.0-liter LS, and going after some world records for manual Corvettes? Sounds like an insane project to you? It sure didn’t sound too daunting to Cleetus McFarland, the creator of "Leroy The Savage."
"Leroy The Savage" is, at its core, a Chevrolet Corvette C5 that was stripped of its bodywork and was able to run the quarter mile in 11 seconds with no other modifications. Then came an LSA supercharger and other mods that brought the time down to 9 seconds. McFarland then smelled blood and reckoned his creation could go after some records on the dragstrip and one thing led to another.
Next-Gen 2020 Porsche 911 GT3 992 Caught Testing Hard at Monza!
The new Porsche 911 992 is one of the most expected vehicles to appear this decade. We all know it is coming, we all know Porsche is testing it all over the world, but we did not know that Porsche was hard-testing the 2020 Porsche 911 992 GT3 version at the Monza. But it did and the driver didn’t hold back if we can judge by the video we have here.
