Parkour and Supercars - A Clash Production

You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video
Its been around for quite a few years now, its been featured in movies and on TV a few times, but you've still probably rarely heard of it. Oh, and its pretty much the art of jumping and looking good while doing it. That's right, its Parkour, and whats interesting about this particular video (brought to you by the ever-so-epic film makers at Clash Productions) is that its not only two surprisingly-fit young men jumping beautifully around a city, but they also jump over cars. An Audi Quattro, Audi R8, and a Nissan GT-R, to be exact. The underlying message of freedom of self-expression is apparent in the video, but doing front flips over an Audi Quattro... Well, that's just plain awesome. I'd advise not trying this at home by the way. Enjoy.

As car guys, car enthusiasts, carnecks - whatever you want to call it, we love crazy car builds. Whether its a 900 hp drag Mazda Miata with an RB26, or a sleeper Saab Wagon with a Dodge Viper V10 in it, crazy builds just get our automotive blood pumping. However, have you ever heard of a Power Wheels build? You know, those slow little electric-motor cars meant for those small, budding enthusiasts of ours? Well, one boy's dad may as well have been nominated for this year's "Dad of the Year" award when he decided to completely rebuild his son's "Lightning McQueen" Power Wheels car. Check the video out for all the modification details, and if you're up for the challenge, go and do this for your young, car-loving kids - they'll love it. Enjoy.

Here we have the #22 Hi Speed Motorsports BMW E36 M3, and its owners have gained the unfortunate experience of understanding first-hand what it means when 'they' say "anything can happen in racing." The video will explain the rest, but despite the unexpected race loss, the driver is without injury and the car is repairable. Racing is racing, nothing you can do about it. Enjoy.

Ferrari 458 Idiot Runs Over Cops Foot

You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video
When you're the proud owner of an unregistered, plate-less, red, Ferrari 458 Italia Spider, you have to make sure NOT to run over a police officer's foot when attempting to get away from receiving a ticket. However, a better option is to not make the attempt in the first place, because - as this guy learned REAL well - it can lead to a severe beating and take down by the cops. Apparently this is more than a normal ticketing, but the suggestion still stands - don't try and escape a ticket while running over a police officer's foot. Enjoy.
