The Craziest Car Jump Stunt Ever Attempted

The Craziest Car Jump Stunt Ever Attempted
I’ve seen some incredible car stunts over the years, but this insane footage from 1976 might just take the cake. Some 40 years ago, stunt driver Kenny Powers (no, not that Kenny Powers) attempted to drive a rocket-powered Lincoln Continental off a 10 story-tall ramp and fly one mile across the St.

Road Testing the 1971 AMC Gremlin

Road Testing the 1971 AMC Gremlin
The AMC Gremlin was a quirky little car made from 1970 to 1978. The angular, economy subcompact has achieved somewhat of a cult status over the years, looking something like a VW Rabbit with the face of an AMC Hornet.

Reliant Robin Race Simulation

Reliant Robin Race Simulation
Thanks to its silly one-in-the-front, two-in-the-back wheel setup, and complete lack of balance, the Reliant Robin is best known for its desire to roll over at the slightest attempt to corner. This was seen by many of us in a classic episode of Top Gear

From the Vaults: Flipping a SAAB 900
SAAB may have fallen on hard times in recent years, but it once made some really great cars. And while we preferred the older SAAB 99 design, the Saab 900 of the 1980s and 90s wasn’t a bad car – and it certainly was known for its safety.

Jaguar XJ220 Does a Flaming Burnout

Jaguar XJ220 Does a Flaming Burnout
Previously, on TaxTheRich, we got to witness a Ferrari 288 GTO driving off-road, and a Jaguar XJ220 ripping up some grass in the English countryside. In this clip, the man who refuses to treat his supercars with kid gloves takes that very same XJ220, and smashes the hammer down to create an epic burnout, fueled not just by burning rubber, but a little bit of highly-flammable accelerant to get a small fire going. While we’re pretty sure we’d never want to subject such a rare and impressive specimen to this kind of intense heat, you’ve got to hand it to the guy for his ability to make a spectacle of himself.

Pulling off drifts, powerslides and handbrake turns is challenging enough when doing it solo, so one can only imagine how difficult it must be to try and pull off such maneuvers in coordination with other drivers.

Watch Craftsmen Remake a Classic Porsche Body Panel
It can take a tremendous amount of time and money to restore a classic car. In most cases, car owners have to dig through junkyards and auctions to find the parts they need. But in the case of Porsche, their accessories group has been known to actually recreate parts for classic cars – in this case, using lighter weight materials.

From the Vaults: 1984 Monte Carlo Rally
It might sound crazy, but there was a time when rally racing wasn’t controlled by all-wheel drive vehicles. In this video that dates back some 35 years, you’ll get to see classic Lancia 037s take on a pack of Audi AWD quattros in the WRC Monte Carlo Rally. While the Audi team ended up dominating that year, the results one year earlier were a quite different, with the RWD Lancias taking the top two positions.

Porsche 911 Targa GTS Can be Packed With $60,000 in Options!
If you had $60,000 to spend on a car, you could certainly get a nice one, like a fully tricked-out Kia Stinger GT, or even the new Toyota Supra. But when you buy a Porsche, you can rack up that kind of expense on options alone.

Toyota Taunts Supra Fans with Sweet, Sweet Exhaust Note

Toyota Taunts Supra Fans with Sweet, Sweet Exhaust Note
Car fans know that there is more to a car than performance and style. It’s also got to make the right noises. To prove it’s got things well in hand, Toyota is teasing the new 2020 Supra with a blurry clip of the car running around under throttle and going brapity brap. The BMW-sourced inline six sounds really good (if more European than Japanese), and it hurts our souls a bit to think that the car might be too expensive.

Anyone who has been watching Ken Block and his Gymkhana videos pretty much knows what to expect. You get Block in a vehicle typically made just for the video, doing donuts around stuff, jumping things, and generally drifting the hell out of whatever he is in.

Miniature W-32 Engine Actually Works
Want to see something really, really special? Then check out this incredible creation from Motores Patelo, who loves to hand build miniature versions of engines. His most impressive creation to date has to be this W-32 engine, which works using four banks of eight cylinders, driven by a single crankshaft. All of the parts move just like they would on a real engine, though this one uses compressed air as its energy source.
