World’s Greatest Drag Race 4

motortrend 2014 drag raceThe world greatest drag race is back! Yes a couple of supercars couldn’t make it to the Start line due to some restrictions, but still we have a pretty cool line up this year! Contestants include this time an Alfa Romeo 4C, BMW i8, BMW M4, the crazy track oriented Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Ford Fiesta ST, Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, Nissan GT-R Nismo, Porsche 911 Turbo S, Subaru WRX STI, and Volkswagen Golf GTI! Yeah I know a bit weird for a GTI and a Ford Fiesta to be among those big boys but Motortrend included them as they were trying to pick up the best drivers car of 2014. You are free to check the full episode of how they proceeded by clicking here. I really wasn’t expecting the outcome of this drag race to be honest. Check it out and let me know what you think 🙂

Subaru Commercial: Scorched

This is one whooping commercial! This ad by Subaru is filmed in a melting garage due to an unknown source of heat. The effects filmed at 2000 fps using Phantom technology at the beginning of the video are just amazing. I already discussed the BRZ in my previous post “Your Story With”. This car is the result of the combined work of two big car companies Toyota and Subaru. I find their outcome really special and amazing. The car has very special and unique features like a very low center of gravity, light weight and a descent design.

Subaru Commercial: “Your Story With”

Video

This Japanese ad is introducing the new Subaru BRZ 2013. This car has one of the lowest possible centers of gravity on the market today with an engine positioned very low in the chassis. Due to that Subaru wasn’t able to fit an All-wheel drive system for the car so the car will be equipped with rear wheel drive. This BRZ features the new Subaru Boxer engine that is gonna be a 2.0 liter engine delivering just around 300 bhp. This new “sports car” design of the car is really new to Subaru and they really did a good job there. The car looks amazing and all the aerodynamics are optimized for down force.

Doesn’t this car look familiar to you? Well it looks pretty much exactly like the Toyota GT86 that Toyota developed. In fact, for the BRZ and GT86, there development was made after a join-venture between Subaru and Toyota for this project in order to come up with the ultimate steering sensation and driving pleasure sports car in the market. (Press the cc button in the video to get the English subtitles)
