Stag do supercar wrecked in high-speed police chase

A groom missed his own wedding after he and his stag party were arrested for allegedly racing through Manchester in hired supercars, in scenes which police said resembled the high-octaneFast and Furious movies.

For his audacious stag-do, the 28-year-old groom and his five friends reportedly cruised through Manchester in supercars including a Lamborghini Gallardo, two Audi R8s and two AMG Mercedes, the Manchester Evening News reported.

But the celebration ended in disaster when police were called to reports of fighting in Manchester city centre at around 2am, and the group sped away.

Police then chased after the party for some 3 miles, from Dantzic Street to Failsworth.

Officers later arrested six men, aged between 20 and 28, after an Audi allegedly reversed into one of three pursuing police cars, The Sun reported. Three cars were recovered at the scene.

The six men were released on bail, but not in time for the groom to attend his wedding.

Greater Manchester Police tweeted of the incident: “Fast & Furious’ Groom + 5 mates were released at 10.30pm on bail. Not sure what the wedding arrangements are now…”

14-year-old races V8 Supercar

14-year-old races V8 Supercar

Alex Rullo

They may be far too young to drive a car on the road, but Alex Rullo and Jake Kostecki lived out a teenage fantasy last weekend by racing a V8 Supercar.

Rullo, 14, and Kostecki, 15, raced in the opening round of the Kumho Tyre Australian V8 Touring Car Series at Sandown Park, part of the opening event of the Shannons Nationals series.

While the heroes of the V8 Supercars Championship tackle Symmons Plains in the newest and finest machinery, the Kumho Series is made up of cars that are part of the championship’s rich history but no longer eligible to race in either the main series or the second-tier Dunlop Series.

The car Kostecki piloted is one of Craig Lowndes’s old Team Vodafone Falcons, while Rullo raced an ex-Ford Performance Racing Falcon.

Although both are some years off being eligible for a road licence, they have done their time at the racetrack and satisfied all of the requirements to earn a racing licence.

Jake Kostecki.

Jake Kostecki

Kostecki had been set to make his debut in the series last year, but was unable to get his licence signed off in time.

Both Kostecki and Rullo have raced extensively in junior categories, the former in karts and production cars, while the latter has already raced a V8.

Modified Supercar Drag Race: Lamborghini Huracan Vs. McLaren 12C

Modified Supercar Drag Race: Lamborghini Huracan Vs. McLaren 12C

Place your bets. The extent of the modifications made to this Lamborghini Huracan aren’t known, yet Road Test TV ponders whether it could be the quickest Huracan in the world.

In stock form, the baby Lambo produces 610 hp from its 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10. But this has received a Speedriven Tune, which supposedly makes it a lot faster.

On the quarter-mile strip, it is facing a McLaren 12C, which ordinarily churns out 616 hp from its 3.8-liter twin turbo V8.

However, this particular model benefits from an AMS tune, and is riding on Toyo R888 rubber.

So, who’s your money on?

Koenigsegg One:1 Races The World’s First Truck Equipped With A Dual-Clutch Gearbox: Video

Koenigsegg One:1 Races The World’s First Truck Equipped With A Dual-Clutch Gearbox: Video

Volvo Trucks, a separate entity to the Volvo car brand, is renowned for its out of the ordinary ad campaigns, like the 2012 campaign where a woman walked a tightrope between two moving trucks, or the more recent one where Jean-Claude VanDamme did the splits standing on the side mirrors of two trucks rolling in reverse.

Now Volvo Trucks is taking on an almost impossible challenge, racing the world’s most powerful car, the 1,341-horsepower (1,360 hp in metric figures) One:1 supercar from fellow Swedish brand Koenigsegg. With only 540 hp, the Volvo FH truck in this latest video is clearly outmatched by the One:1, however, sitting behind the wheel is none other than British racer and television personality Tiff Needell.

Furthermore, in this challenge the One:1 will have to complete two laps of Sweden’s Knutstorp race track while the FH, the world’s first heavy-duty truck to be equipped with a dual-clutch transmission, only needs to complete a single lap. Volvo Trucks likes to boast that its new transmission, dubbed the I-Shift Dual Clutch, is based on sports car technology, so where better to demonstrate its performance than on the track—and up against what’s potentially the world’s fastest car.

Watch a rocket-powered bicycle outrun a supercar

Watch a rocket-powered bicycle outrun a supercar

You probably don’t think of bicycles as speed demons, but Arnold Nearcher and François Gissy would beg to differ. They’ve respectively developed and raced a rocket-powered bike that just broke a world speed record for the vehicle class, hitting a brisk 207MPH.

It’s not the fastest two-wheeler of any kind, but the acceleration (maximum speed arrives in five seconds) is enough to put supercars to shame.

As you’ll see in the video below, the machine can outrun a light-yet-powerful Ferrari F430 Scuderia without breaking a sweat.

Given the dangers involved, you won’t be riding a rocket bike on your daily commute any time soon. Still, it’s an impressive feat — think of it as poetic justice for every time a motorist has cut you off while you’re pedaling down the street.

Supercar Drag Race: Ferrari 458 Vs. Audi R8 V10

Two of today’s best loved supercar exotics, this quarter-mile matchup seems very evenly balanced on paper with the Ferrari 458’s V8 putting down 542 horsepower and the Audi R8 V10 Plus rated at 550 hp.

We’ve seen both these cars pushed way harder than this, but the 1320-yard times of 11.57 seconds @ 120 mph for the Audi and 11.81 seconds @123 mph for the Ferrari are not exactly pedestrian.

But they could also be way better. As always, the driver has plenty to say about the outcome of a quarter-mile sprint. On this occasion, the pilots decided to take things easy.
