2013 Tesla Model S and 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 drag race for a quarter mile. The results are close, and interesting.
Little Tikes Cozy Coupe has been a staple car for children for decades, and of course, several of us adults have memories of the little car. Little Tikes now has a sibling, a street legal car that resembles the famous toy car, but is fit to be driven on the road.

Feast your eyes on the beauty that is the 2015 Corvette Z06. What this car has in looks is complemented by what it has to offer in terms of performance as well. The Z06 comes with a supercharger mounted to its 6.2-liter LT4 engine, offering up a neat 625 hp and 635 lb-ft of torque. While the exact performance figures aren’t really out yet, we can safely bet with power like that and the attention to detail in its design, this would put up quite a performance.
You have to be impressed by the sheer scale of this vending machine in Hangzhou, China. Rather than the usual little treats we would expect vending machines to sell, this one burps out cars. The vending machine and cars there are part of a car sharing program by Kandi Technologies.

Lamborghini has unveiled the successor to the Gallardo, and it has shown up in the form of Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4. The new supercar has big shoes to fill, considering the Gallardo is the most sold Lamborghini to date. If a simple glance is to go by, the Huracan looks set to work its job.
Artist Philippe Pasqua started off this project with a Ferrari F430 Scuderia. The supercar was first wrapped in cowhide, taking care to cover every nook and crevice of the body, while ensuring the leather followed the curves of the Ferrari as well as it could be. This would in itself be a tricky job, considering the joints, hinges and crevices are not the best friends of a leather coat.
Once upon a time, Formula 1 cars used to have a paintjob that matched the flags of their countries. The game has since changed, and the cars have been plastered with advertisements instead. Well, the current advertisement plastered cars are no rarity for us, but there’s always a nostalgia in looking back at the past. Camille de Bastiani has created a set of images that show the Formula 1 cars of 2013 dressed in the liveries of various years ranging from the 1960s to mid 2000s.
Taking a page out of Ken Block’s awesome Gymkhana, Ford has its own Christmas video with ‘Snowkhana’. Quite like last year’s video, this year’s Snowkhana is a stop motion animation with toys, featuring Mental Block taking the wheel of a 1:64 scale Ford Fiesta. Mr. Mental Block then proceeds to try out stunts, toeing the line of Ken Block, while other cars and characters make cameos. Hit ahead for the last year’s video, this year’s video is up top.
