Lookout, we have a badass on out hands. Although the story is only emerging now, in 1993 Emile Leray’s Citroen down broke in a Moroccan desert miles from nearest village. Unfazed, he took the car apart and turned it into a motorbike.
Up until yesterday, car makers used to be a bunch of greasy, oil-stained, mechanically minded individuals. Naff things like pencils were a bit of a poke, which in turn created a market for design geniuses and those with suspiciously thin-rimmed spectacles. Design work was, and is, still left to people like Sergio Pininfarina.
Talking and texting while driving is somewhat of a cultural phenomenon in South Africa. There are those that are law abiding, but there are also those that don’t seem to care, and throw caution to the wind. But now Capetonians will face a R5 000 fine, and have their phone confiscated for a day for transgressing the law, it was reported in the Cape Times this morning.

On Saturday, Top Gear broke a world record by performing the first double loop in a car. As nothing exploded, no sarcastic comments were heard as the vehicle made its loops and it didn’t crash, we can be safe to assume it wasn’t Clarkson, Hammond or May driving.
This past weekend, Audi made automotive history when their E-Tron became the first hybrid car to win the the world’s biggest auto-racing endurance event, the 24-hour LeMans.

If you are one of those douchebags (or know such a douchebag) who text while driving, then you need to check out this video. Potential drivers in Belgium were told they had to pass a “mobile phone test” in order to get their driver’s licenses. See how they did, inside.

Microsoft wants you to notice them too – which is why they’ve rolled out a Ford Mustang fitted with Kinect sensors, two Windows 8 tablets, projection screens, and a couple of other neat toys as a proof-of concept to inspire developers to build applications and automotive technologies with Microsoft in mind.
A driver in the UK has been jailed after trying to run a group of pedestrians over “like skittles.” The group of people had apparently “been mocking him” as he drew up at a junction. So he did what any sane person would do in such a situation by turning his car into an 80km/h motorised battering ram. Video after the jump.
In case you thought the Dutch were only good at making cheese, think again. A car that can fly for up to 500 kilometers at speeds of 177 km/h, has been produced in the Netherlands. Check out the video after the jump.
Man, it must be nice having the second-highest GDP per capita in the world, like Qatar does. That way you can afford to kit out your police force with an entire fleet of deeply sexy Porsche and VW vehicles, which you can send out on parades whenever you feel like it. Like in this insane video.
Yesterday a Mercedes was driven face-first into Johannesburg’s Malibongwe Drive. The driver also managed to take a BMW from a nearby dealership down the embankment with her! In a radio interview she said that while visiting the dealership to trade in her car, her “high heel got stuck while in reverse”. The disastrous result can be seen after the jump.
Former 2oceansvibe Weathergirl Genevieve Morton stars in the music video for Gavin Degraw’s HOT new single, Sweeter.

Check it [...]
Well this is new, and sort of neat. For the new V40, Volvo is introducing the world’s first pedestrian airbag system, designed to reduce the severity of pedestrian injuries in a car-pedestrian collision. Alternatively it could double as a sweet new inflatable mattress on the hood of your car.
