Introducing the Alpine A110-50, a concept car by Renault that has been created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Renault Alpine A110 ”Berlinette”. The concept car features a 3.5litre V6 mid-rear engine that delivers 400hp. This engine is associated with a beautifully designed roof mounted-intake that funnels the air directly into the machine’s carbon-fiber intake. Add to that a custom exhaust and a F1 semi sequential 6 speed dual clutch gear box and this is what you get, a flame-throwing 50th anniversary Blue Alpina concept car.The driver in the commercial is Jean Ragnotti, an old time racing driver for Renault. The idea in the video is that he is racing against his younger self in the younger Alpina A110.
You might be asking yourself but when are we gonna see one of those cruising on the Champs Elysee, well until know never. Renault still hasn’t talked about producing this car.
Introducing the Mazda2, sport edition. The small compact hatchback by Mazda. It features a 1.5 liters engine delivering 100hp and 98 ft-lbs of torque, just enough for a small trip around the city. But today, it is taking a small trip around the Wall of Death, a wood-paneled motordrome. The stunt was achieved thanks to the small size and light weight of the Mazda2, the centrifugal force and the expertise of “Dynomite” Dave Seymour of Demon Drome. Dave is a professional rider who has been practicing a century old extreme sport, riding the Wall of Death.
This ad actually shows how light and compact the Mazda is. The motordrome is originally designed for motorcycles to ride on it, not cars. But the Mazda was able to fit in the arena and perform the stunt. Dave took the car for approximately 8 laps on the wall, driving at 50 km/h while experiencing a 2.5g g-force. I really liked the ad, it was a good idea to combine the Mazda2 and “Dynomite” even though they come from totally different worlds. Mazda really tried a very challenging stunt/ad and succeeded. Hope the ad campaign is that successful as well. You can check the Making of “the Mazda 2 vs Wall of Death”.
This is one of the craziest car ads I have ever seen. Like Seriously?! A man wearing a wing-suit, wired to a Countryman and getting ejected from a cliff?! The 2013 MINI John Cooper Works Countryman is an amazing combination of power and handling. The 1.6 turbo engine delivers 211 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. Combined with the All4 all-wheel drive system, the Contryman ends up to be the first and fastest MINI JCW with a four wheel drive system.
