Fangio Man: Nice TOY!...
Fangio Man: This car exists only in a game......
From the outside, W222 may seem like the least revolutionary S class in Mercedes Benz history.

3 days ago Beware of muddy wheels
Did you know that something as benign as dirty rims can cause high speed vibration almost as bad as a bent rim or damaged tire?
If you use your street vehicle for occasional trip off the pavement on to gravel or muddy forest trails, sooner or later you will encounter a mud hole which will, at the very least, turn your shiny alloys into unrecognizable mud cakes.

Hennessey Venom GT has not set the production car speed record, making it not the fastest car in the world.
Hennessey Performance, the Texas based engine tuning company and now car producer, has released a press release, stating that Venom GT has broken production car speed record and now "the worlds quickest car is also the worlds fastest car".
That all sounds very good, except, Hennesseys claimed record of 265.7 mph is 2.157 mph less than what... read more
