Top Gear on Isle of Man

| Labels: | 0 comments |

With no speed limits and no rules, Jeremy Clarksson and ’The Stig’ among others, made some tests to decide which car is the best.

Competitors were:
Murcielago LP640
997 GT3
Audi R8
Ariel Atom
Ferrari 599GTB
Caparo T1
Megane R26
Jaguar XKR
Ford GT (Clarkssons previously owned)
Aston Vantage
And the winner is: Audi R8. Reason? Jeremy explains why:

"To own a car means far more than how much mechanical grip you’ve got when you screw up in the wet. Audi R8 is the best car because it makes you stand out from the crowd WITHOUT making you look like a pornstar with complex. What you all forget is that you have to be able to park outside the diner and then enter the car without soiling the interior with ketchup! R8 is fast, as fast as most of the cars, and faster than some of them, but it is still useful. Important when you spend half of your time in traffic jam. The roads on Isle of Man is a playground for cars like this, but a part from a few weeks of the TT-races, it isn’t a race track. If you are obsessed of putting down low track times, you’re better of with a cheap diesel plus a formula car for the track to play with.. When it comes to living here and it pours down and are only one good restaurant on the island which you have to drive to, then you need a REAL car. I also happens to know that The Stig wants an R8 - thats as good as any recommendation for me.. "

Pontiac G8 Crash

Friday, September 28, 2007 | Labels: | 4 comments |

Pontiac's famous tagline is "We build excitment". What does it say about the new Pontiac G8 that yesterday morning an Australian engineer driving a test car fell asleep at the wheel and piloted it down a 100-foot embankment, striking a boulder and flipping the car end over end? Well, the Pontiac G8 will surely be one of the more exciting vehicles from the brand in recent memory when it goes on sale early next year, but apparently for the engineer, 41-year-old Rolf Glenk, it wasn't exciting enough to keep him awake.

Glenk was the last in a convoy of G8s that were traveling on Highway 82 in Colorado yesterday morning when the accident happened. Being last in line, it was only after another engineer noticed their group was one short that Glenk and the totaled G8 were found flipped upside down at the bottom of an embankment. Glenk was taken to Aspen Valley Hospital and treated for minor injuries, while the G8 didn't so fare nearly as well. Glenk was also given a citation for careless driving.

C5 Corvette Coupe Crash Into Homes Basement

| Labels: | 0 comments |

Yesterday morning, in Hiawatha, Iowa, an early morning crash put a C5 Corvette coupe into a homes basement. (Apparently, it found a window to hit.) The car seems to have survived pretty well, though the hood’s going to need some work. And, of course, it’s possible that more harm will be done removing it slowly than it did entering quickly.

KCRG television of Cedar Rapids, Iowa reports that the driver, who was not injured, was taken into custody by police for operating while intoxicated.

The homeowner spent the balance of the night at a motel.
