PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen Presents Lego T2 Camper Van And We’re Already Dreaming Of A Life-Sized Lego World

The Volkswagen Type 2 is one of the German automaker’s most enduring designs and was even kept in production in Brazil until 2013. Volkswagen sold countless numbers around the world and, while the T2 generation isn’t as cute as the original T1, it has its place in history. At the F.re.e Leisure and Travel Fair in Munich, Germany, the T2 made an unexpected appearance in Lego form, proving that making full-scale recreations of cars out of thousands of Lego bricks is now a thing.

The second generation of Volkswagen’s world-renown compact multi-purpose van debuted in the Summer of 1967 and was kept in production until 1979 for the American and European markets. The Argentinian market enjoyed the T2 as late as 1986 while over in Mexico you could buy a new T2 up until 1994. However, the T2 was most popular in Brazil where Volkswagen built it at the São Bernardo do Campo plant until 2013 when the production officially ended with a run of 600 Last Edition vehicles.

PostHeaderIcon This Video Showcases Just What Happens In Vancouver When it Snows

I don’t know about you guys, but where I’m at up here in the mountains of northern California, Mother Nature has decided to dump a winter’s worth of snow in just a few weeks’ time. It’s great for the skiing and snowboarding, but if you don’t have the right equipment at your disposal, you’re gonna have to improvise – as the folks in this video quickly found out.

PostHeaderIcon Disney’s Building a Real-Life Version of The Giant Simulator in Cars 3, But None of Us Will Get To Use it

One of the more memorable scenes in Cars 3 is coming to life after Disney announced the opening of its new attraction, Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy, at the company’s Hollywood Studios park at the end of March. The attraction is based on the giant simulator scene in the third Cars movie that Lightning McQueen used — he actually destroyed it — as part of his training with Cruz Ramirez. Details of the attraction are still vague at this point, but reports indicate that Disney is investing heavily in recreating the giant racing simulator from the movie, complete with a large, custom-made project surface. Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy opens on March 31, 2019.

PostHeaderIcon Check Out Dozens Of Miatas Ready To Spread Joy and Gifts in Japan

Once a year, just before Christmas, the members of the Roadster Club of Japan, devotees of the Mazda Miata, dress up as Santa, turn their cars into genuine Santamobiles and set about doing charitable work in some of Japan’s major cities.

The event organized by Mazda Miata owners has been a decade-old tradition in Yokohama and has also been organized in Tokyo for the past three years. Now, some 26 Miata owners, as well as many volunteers and Mazda employees, including the designer of the fourth-generation Miata, took part in a charitable event of this kind organized for the first time in Hiroshima.

PostHeaderIcon A Snowmobile in the Back of a BMW 3 Series is Proof We Need More Wagons

The market has been moving towards big SUVs and all kinds of crossovers in the past few years, but there are still people who favor a good old station wagon like this guy who decided a snowmobile will fit in the back of his BMW 3 Series Wagon and, incredibly, it did. Sort of…

Just when we all thought that sedans and station wagons were on the chopping block…. Thanks to an ever decreasing interest in cars and the momentum gained by trucks and all kinds of crossovers in the past few years, we come across videos like this that show just how much stuff you can haul in the back of an ordinary station wagon.

PostHeaderIcon Santa’s Exotic and Luxurious Sleighs

Nobody really knows how often Santa upgrades his sleigh, but what if he wanted to shop for a new model altogether? Well, over the past five or six years, publications like Car Magazine have challenged automakers to design a new sleigh for Santa. Automakers like Bentley, Land Rover, and even Vauxhall have designed new sleighs for Santa in the past, so needless to say, Santa has had a lot to choose from.

I don’t recall seeing any designs last year, and have only seen one this year. But, when you consider the long list of available sleighs at his disposal, there are still at least a few on standby, just waiting to be plucked from some secret, magical garage that is undoubtedly located somewhere at the North Pole.

Since we haven’t seen too many fresh designs for the 2015, I decided to revisit a few of the sleighs created in the years past. Most of the sleighs are exotic, or out of this world – and one even looks like a fighter jet – but why wouldn’t Santa take advantage of all the latest technology? You may have seen one or two of the designs in the past, but it’s always fun to revisit things like this during the holidays. Which of the following sleighs do you think Santa is going to use this year?

PostHeaderIcon 10 Years Ago: Bentley, Nissan, Ford, and Rolls-Royce Pimped Santa’s Ride

Car Magazine has got the right idea for a little holiday spirit. It asked designers in the U.K. from Bentley, Nissan, Ford and Rolls-Royce to pimp Santa’s ride. Each designer took elements from the brands current car design philosophy but came up with some very different results: everything from a futuristic Nissan GT-R based rocket sled to a gothic classic from Rolls-Royce.

No matter if the engine is measured in horsepower or reindeerpower, speed is the theme in all of these designs. So we have no trouble liking all of them.

PostHeaderIcon Throwback: Jaguar-Designed “F-Sleigh” For Santa

Santa Claus has a pretty unenviable job, even if it means he only has to work for one day out of the entire year. Can you imagine being dormant for 364 days in preparation for that one day where you have to go to millions of miles to drop off presents to the world’s children? It’s a daunting task that I wouldn’t want on my plate. But, Santa’s a real trooper, and if there’s a way a company like Jaguar Land Rover can help good ol’ Saint Nick, it’s going to take the opportunity to do so.

PostHeaderIcon New In-Car App from Tesla is Fart-Tastic

Tesla’s cloud-based system updates make it easy for owners to download every new improvement that comes from the company founded by Elon Musk. This time, you really should hurry because the latest update includes a brilliant easter-egg: a fart app.

Have you ever wanted to play a practical joke on your friends by deploying an array of fart sounds in your car’s surround audio system? Well, if you own a Tesla, the latest update lets you do just that. You can choose between farts on demand and farts that activate when you toggle the turn signals. Really, now, what more could you wish for?

PostHeaderIcon The Chevrolet Silverado Was The Star of a Recent Detroit Red Wings Game For The Wrong Reasons

Chevrolet had its hands on the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show launching the all-new Blazer. It was, by all accounts, a successful debut for the crossover. Unfortunately, one of Chevy’s most popular models – the Silverado pickup truck — didn’t have as good of a time 2,300 miles away in Detroit when it inexplicably went limp while in the middle of a low-key marketing stunt at the Little Caesars Arena during an NHL game between the St. Louis Blues and the hometown Detroit Red Wings.

PostHeaderIcon Think You’ll Get Bored In a Self-Driving Car With Nothing To Do? Study Says You’ll Probably End Up Having Lots of Sex

An interesting study has concluded that self-driving cars will lead to passengers having more sex in the car, and could eventually turn out to be the go-to option for ‘sex for hire’ as well. Although it sounds a little hysterical for now, this could affect urban tourism a lot more than you might think.

PostHeaderIcon WTF? Strange, Crazy, Amazing, and Downright Stupid Things at SEMA 2018

You can pretty much see anything and everything automotive related at the SEMA show. From pure-bred muscle cars, wild exotics, monster trucks, and full-on race cars. SEMA has something for everyone to love. On the other side of that spectrum, there is a lot that may not be to your taste. From the crazy awesome to the crazy clueless, here you can find a bit of each.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Summon – Your Solution to Two Hour Parking Laws

You could argue that the original automobile was invented to get around the hassle of dealing with horses and all the difficulties associated with using a giant mammal to get from A to B. Sure, that’s a gross simplification, and there were certainly other factors at play, but convenience undoubtedly played a major role all the same. Now, with the advent of autonomous drive systems, our lives are about to get a whole lot easier, as evidenced by this Tesla owner’s novel use of the Summon feature.

PostHeaderIcon Nothing to See Here; Just a Giant Industrial Spool Causes Commotion on Houston highway

Out of all the things you expect to encounter while commuting on the highway, a giant industrial spool rolling towards you is probably close to the bottom of the possibilities list. But even so, that’s exactly what drivers out on Interstate 10 near Houston ran into last Thursday and had to avoid.

PostHeaderIcon Someone Seriously Turned a Pontiac Fiero Into a Porsche Carrera GT

Car customization can make your dreams come true – even if that dream is turning your mid-80’s domestic into a Porsche supercar. Case in point is this, uh, unique Pontiac Fiero, which someone transformed into a hilarious parrot of the Porsche Carrera GT.

The best part is that it’s listed on Ebay UK, so if you really want it, and have an extra $16,881 to spare, it could be yours. Don’t worry, we won’t judge you.

PostHeaderIcon The Hoonigans Go Deep With Cleetus McFarland’s Insane ’Vette Kart: Video

How about stripping a Chevrolet Corvette down, strapping in a 7.0-liter LS, and going after some world records for manual Corvettes? Sounds like an insane project to you? It sure didn’t sound too daunting to Cleetus McFarland, the creator of “Leroy The Savage.”

“Leroy The Savage” is, at its core, a Chevrolet Corvette C5 that was stripped of its bodywork and was able to run the quarter mile in 11 seconds with no other modifications. Then came an LSA supercharger and other mods that brought the time down to 9 seconds. McFarland then smelled blood and reckoned his creation could go after some records on the dragstrip and one thing led to another.

PostHeaderIcon Ford and Tesla are in Each Other’s Crosshairs as Mild-Mannered Trolling Continues

Ford and Tesla have engaged in some mild-mannered back-and-forth in the past few weeks, so it’s no surprise that when Tesla CEO Elon Musk posted on Twitter about his company’s impressive production volume, Ford Europe CEO Steven Armstrong responded with a zing of his own. Armstrong’s tweet came as a response to Musk’s post about Tesla producing 7,000 cars in seven days. A lot of people were impressed by that number, at least except Armstrong who responded by saying that Ford builds 7,000 cars in four hours.

PostHeaderIcon Vehicle Virgins Goes Full ‘Merica for the Fourth of July: Video

Hello, fellow ‘Mericans. Happy 4th of July to ‘ya. If you have a moment, I’d like to share a video that’s sure to stir your red, white, and blue soul. So put down that fifth burger and take a gander at this holiday-themed video from the fine folks at Vehicle Virgins.

We like it for a few reasons. First up, it’s short and right to the point, taking just two-and-a-half minutes to run its course. But oh, what a ride it is – the entirety of the video showcases one rather patriotic countryman as he mounts the bed of a diesel-powered pickup, twisting and turning through a dirt road behind a farm, flag in one hand, case of light beer between his legs, and the spirit of a bald eagle flying in his heart. No words are needed, just the Star Spangled Banner playing in the background to guide him on his way.

Seriously, the only thing this moving film is lacking is a rousing burst of gunfire and a few explosions. Still, it’s worth a watch all the same.

PostHeaderIcon Off Topic – Watch A Pair of Porta-a-Johns Take Flight

Okay, we know it’s off-topic, but when the whole TopSpeed headquarters hits the floor laughing at a video, we can’t help but share it with our loyal readers. In this case, we’re talking about a video of two porta-a-johns take flight spraying their sweet, sweet mist into the air to grace the faces of those watching from the ground below.

The situation took place in the Denver Metro area, and despite the somewhat clear skies, the Gods decided to unleash what we can only describe as gale-force winds. Okay, maybe they weren’t that bad, but for a relatively clear day with no sign of a storm in sight, the wind kicked up enough to topple a massive tent and throw this pair of porta-thrones about like a couple pieces of paper. They bounce off the rear end of one SUV, then transcend into the heavens, blowing their lovely blue mist as if they were a Space X rocket venting before takeoff.

According to KTBS news agency in Denver, there was – fortunately – nobody in either toilet when the took flight, and nobody on the ground was hurt, either. That’s awesome and all, but there were certainly a lot of people who needed one hell of a shower and will probably be scared of ever entering one of these grey boxes of death ever again. Well, at least it wasn’t as bad as it could be, right?

PostHeaderIcon One Man’s Turbine-Powered Scooter Creates the Biggest Smile Ever – Video

YouTube Fabricator, Colin Furze, has built all kinds of things, but his latest creation hits us right in the feels – a fan-powered scooter for none other than his five-year-old son. His latest creation is a little different from the BMW hot tub of the weaponized rickshaw, but it’s pretty damn cool, and as you’ll see from the unbelievably happy face on his son when the project is done, it might be the best thing he’s ever built.

The video shows the whole process from start to finish, including the test run when his son’s face lights up with the biggest smile the world has ever seen. Furze even made it a point to make the fan-turbine remote controlled because his son will “go crazy and drive it straight into the neighbor’s car.” Parenting at its best, right? It might be a homemade project, but it looks pretty cool and, needless to say, it’s as functional as can be. As for range and actual thrust, Furze has yet to figure all of that out but none of that really matters to the five-year-old it is built for, anyway.

The best part is, Furze says he’s building an even faster and more powerful model for adults – one with a gas turbine from turbocharge parts. Now that in itself sounds absolutely amazing, but go ahead and watch this video for now. If the look on his son’s face doesn’t make you smile, I’m not sure we can be friends anymore.
