Tuned Nissan GT-R Models Itself on Fire in London and It’s The entire Drama You Need

We’re many (too many?) months away from getting contemporary automobile film content material – Quick 9, arguably probably the most anticipated manufacturing of the type of all occasions, has been pushed again to April 2021 and could possibly be delayed even additional – however right here’s the closest factor. A tuned Nissan GT-R R35 set itself on fireplace in London and the ensuing video delivers on-the-edge-of-your-seat-type leisure akin to Vin Diesel’s on-screen stunts.

CHP Officers Train for Winter by Doing Donuts in Their Dodge Charger

Who said cops are all about raining on a car enthusiast’s parade? Well, they usually are, but not in this particular instance.

The latest video from CHP Truckee, which is actually a PSA on the need to start training and preparing for winter driving, is proof that cops can also have fun.

Truckee in California usually has very harsh winters, so it makes sense to have the local CHP (California Highway Patrol) issue a PSA on the need to train for winter driving (hat tip to The Drive for this awesome video). The rather strange thing here is that they’re doing it with a video that shows a CHP Dodge Charger doing burnouts and burning rubber on a closed track circuit, with an Elf on the Shelf at the wheel.

The Elf is apparently some type of local celebrity. His name is Gunther and, as the public service announcement video will have you know, he’s “training for winter driving.” “Aren’t you?”

Because Gunther is part of the force, his winter driving training involves doing burnouts in a Dodge Charger, as a means to learn how to control the car better. Presumably, every other driver out there preparing for winter behind the wheel shouldn’t emulate that. So this is a case of “do as we say, not as we do.”

At the end of the day, this is just a fun, silly video that aims to draw attention to the need to adjust your driving to existing road/weather conditions, and it’s doing so with something out of the ordinary. The fact that the whole thing is set to Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone,” made famous as the song from the 1986 Top Gun, gives the PSA a decided ‘80s retro rock vibe, and we’re here for it.
Rock on!

This 1996 Chevy Impala SS Is One Cool Sleeper Sedan With Low Miles

Chevrolet has used the SS nameplate for the Impala on a few occasions. The first time around, the Super Sport from the 1960s topped 425 horsepower from a 7.0-liter engine fed by a four-barrel carburetor. Three decades later, the golden bowtie treated us to a sleeper sedan with fuel injection for the LT1 small-block V8 related to the Corvette.
