Best Car Vid Week EVER!!!

I don't know if any of you noticed, but last week was the best car video week ever!  And it didn't even involve Top Gear...

It all started off on Tuesday, the 9th, with Ken Block's latest DC commercial Gymkhana 5 video.  He shreds San Francisco and then shreds a ferry.  It's pretty awesome all around.  Try to guess my favorite part.  I'll tell you after you watch.  Don't cheat and scroll down now, loser.

My favorite part is the car hurtling through the air over the hills like Bullitt.

On Wednesday, the 10th, came the premiere of Tuned on the Drive Network.  Matt Farah drove John Hennessey's Venom GT.  It's a super car that's based off of a Lotus Exige, but is no longer a Lotus.  I won't go into specifics because that's what the video does and these guys made a bad ass video.  The quality, the sets, the car, Matt's school girl giggle (that's how you know he really likes the car), and the fact that it's Steven Tyler's Venom all add up to a great watch.

The last video of the best week ever for car videos is Chris Harris' film of the Pagani Huayra.  Chris travels to super car valley in Italy to drive the latest Pagani, a car that's not even legal in the States. Yet.  The car is gorgeous and has ailerons.  Those are airplane parts on a car. This car is a piece of art.  It's fast and gorgeous, like an amazingly beautiful woman who also happens to be an assassin.  She'd kill us all.  The Huayra won't kill you, but it will definitely try.  I'll let Chris explain the rest.


  1. That's something I'd never do with any car in San Francisco. Call me too careful, but I don't really want to wreck my car's undercarriage.

  2. Cool! This is a wonderful sports car. After reading this article I know about this luxury racing car. I like car racing. Really it's awesome. Thanks for posting & keep it up :)

  3. Excellent! It's an excellent post. I like racing. So I am always looking for this kind of car. I like this post very much. Thanks a lot
