As Seen In The Movies

With the Oscars over we are reminded that often the real star of a hit film is not the hero (or villain) but the car they were driving.

This Is NOT Justin Bieber

If you wonder what kind of trouble Justin Bieber got into this week, this video might offer some clues. Of course this is NOT Justin Bieber and we have no idea what he was doing in that Lamborghini in Miami–or if he even was in Miami (perhaps it was his stunt double?)

Top Speed Record Set In 2013!

You know who set the Guinness World record for the top speed for a street car at 455kmh?

Ford.

But don’t take our word for it. Watch this:

 

This Ford GT created by Performance Power Racing managed to set the Guinness World Record for top speed in a street car. The world record attempt took place on NASA’s shuttle landing facility at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This Ford GT managed to set a world record top speed of 283.232 mph (455.82 km/h). This is a lot faster than the Veyron. The secret behind this success is an engine with an output of 1,700 hp and a newly developed alloy, called pandalloy, which was used for manufacturing various parts.
