In today’s update, a very uncomfortable man drives a race car, some fish stick to a Mini, and a VW Beetle sets a lap record.
I’m sure anyone who’s ever been near a race car will tell you that they aren’t luxury cruisers. But back in the 80s, Williams decided to try making it worse, just for kicks. The theory was that by removing the suspension, the lack of body roll and lower ride height would lead to more efficient aerodynamics, more controlled handling and better road feedback. Unfortunately, it just ended up shaking Alan Jones to bits, prompting Frank Williams to suggest he sit on his wallet.
Fish. Bananas. Totoro. You guys have found some really weird stuff. That lacy interior is causing me physical pain.
In another great video from everyone’s favorite automotive super-nerd, Engineering Explained explains the engineering behind how the Ford Raptor technically has both all-wheel and four-wheel drive. Needless to say, it involves a lot of words I don’t understand.
We’ve known for a couple days that the GT2 RS dominated Lamborghini’s Nürburgring record, but video and photos have been scarce. No longer, for we finally have some pretty glorious onboard video of the feat being accomplished. Click here to see for yourself.
Who Would Be Richard Hammond’s Bond Girl?

Got any better matches for Richard? Let us know in the comments below!
