Epic Toyota Supra vs Murcielago

carnecks_weekly_five_murcielago_supra
Here we have one of the few legendary Toyota Supra videos that you'd only find after mindlessly searching YouTube in the late hours of the night. A battle between money and power, you'd think they're the same thing but this video proves otherwise as a MKIV (the only kind the internet knows) Toyota Supra - highly modified, no doubt about that - goes up against one of Italy's finest - the Lamborghini Murcielago. The Supra has to be making nearly double the power of that Lambo, because the way it toys with it is simply brutal. Enjoy.

Subaru Impreza Rally Drift

You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video
The Subaru Impreza is a complex, yet simple All-Wheel-Drive machine that is known for two things. One of them is grip - the Impreza (we're talking about higher-end models here like the WRX or WRX STi) is known for its superb handling. Can a Subaru Impreza drift though? That can be answered with the second thing that Imprezas are known for - Rally. Here we have footage of a professional driver who appears to be testing out his car as he takes it up and down this short stretch of curvy mountain road, and he does so - sideways, with perfect AWD slides through the barrier-less curves, perfect control, and that perfect trademark boxer engine sound. Enjoy.

Toyota Supra Scares People

Daredevils are those who seek out their most incredible of fears, and challenge them. Hearing the backfiring exhaust note of a Toyota Supra just as it hits boost can make you a daredevil too, as seen in this video. Driving a Supra, however, even daredevils dont do that. Enjoy.

Honda NSX VS Corvette - Getaway In Stockholm

Lets put the street racing disclaimers aside for now and just respect the raw beauty of a Honda (you can call it an Acura if you'd like) NSX relentlessly chasing what appears to be a Corvette C5 through - again, it appears to be - the dark-filled streets of Sweden, as part of one of the first installments of the infamous internet-born series - Getaway in Stockholm. Racing full-throttle with little regard for risk or danger, the NSX and Corvette have at it, even the police try and join in the fun, but just cannot handle the power of these two beasts being unleashed onto the streets. Enjoy.

Running Away From The Police 101

Running away from the police is simply not a smart idea. However, when you've got (what the man in the YouTube video claims is) a turbocharged Yahama R1 street bike, it definitely becomes much easier - though not less stupid. Watch as the pilot of the R1 stops alongside the road for a police officer, and then takes off directly in front of the coming traffic, only to go from 0 to potentially 150 mph in mere seconds. Enjoy.
