Meet the Masters: Auto Mechanics Recreate Classic Paintings

The Renaissance masters have inspired people for centuries, so it’s only natural that artists and creatives would want to build on the work of the masters – or pay homage.

Step forward and declare your allegiance to the Aston Martin Vulcan

Aston Martin has unveiled its brand new Vulcan supercar at the Geneva Motor Show. Now that is not just a regular car, it is a thoroughbred packed with top of the line automobile technology that probably well qualifies to demand your allegiance.

Trion Nemesis is in the futuristic hardcore supercar business

Trion, and by association, the Trion Nemesis are both new names in the supercar game. And as things stand, they might as well be here for the long haul. I say that because I’m smitten with its good looks and excellent form. Top of the line model Nemesis N1-RR comes with a humongous 9.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine that has 2000 horses at its command. This motor will be mated to an 8-speed sequential transmission. Working together, the arrangement promises a zero to 60 mph time of 2.8 seconds, and a top speed of 290 mph.

Ken Block’s Gymkhana 7 on the streets of LA [video]

Grab a cola, sit back, relax, and watch Ken Block pull off amazing stunts in Gymkhana 7.

That brings us to the second amazing factor of the video. No cars on the roads of Los Angeles? They must have time traveled to a post-apocalyptic world!

Watch a bicycle kick a Ferrari’s ass in a drag race

It is entirely possible that no one ever imagined reading something like that. A bicycle smoking a Ferrari? That’s probably an indication that the four horsemen of the apocalypse are in town. Thankfully for sanity, we know that the bike is powered by a rocket engine, which explains why the poor Ferrari 430 Scuderia is left bellowing in the dust from the get-go.

The video was captured on November 7, 2014, where François Gissy reached a top speed of 207mph (333 km/h) at the famous Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet, France.
