3. SSC Ultimate Aero – Top Speed 257mph

Produced from 2006 to 2013, only two street legal cars in the world would get the better of the SSC Ultimate Aero. It accelerates from 0 – 60mph in 2.7 seconds and was the fastest car in the world when tested in 2007.

Hennessey-Venom-GT-left-front2. Hennessey Venom GT – Top Speed 260mph

It is not difficult to understand why this immense supercar is so quick – the model is equipped with a monstrous 6.2-litre LS9 Turbocharged Twin Turbo V8 Engine producing 1200 bhp. It reaches 60mph from a standstill in a devestating 2.5 seconds. True Venom.

If you a thing or two about automobiles then there’s no prizes for guessing which speedster comes out on top. The Bugatti Veyron is simply a breath-taking piece of German engineering, one which can reach 60mph from a standstill in 2.4 seconds. It looks superb and costs well in excess of £1 millon. At top speed its tyres only last for 38 miles – which would actually be less than 9 minutes – and they cost around £23,000 to replace!

MOT and Service Savings

Written By: admin - Mar• 20•13

Driving is an expensive aspect of everyday modern life. Cars themselves cost a lot of money and there are plenty of additional costs which we must pay in order for it to be legal for us to take to the roads.

There is insurance and road tax to pay for, not to mention fuel – for which the price seems to be constantly rising. Evidently, saving money on driving is a difficult task. The obvious option is to trade in your Range Rover Sport and buy something smaller like a used Toyota Auris. It will be cheaper to buy initially and the smaller engine will equate to less trips to the petrol station.

But what about saving money on your MOT and Servicing?

The standard protocol for most of us is to take our car down the local garage every year and accept the first price we are quoted for a service or an MOT without questioning it. There seems to be no other option, but how are you to know whether you are paying the right price or whether you can get the same done for cheaper elsewhere?

Well recently there really hasn’t been a definitive answer to that question, but thanks to leading UK automotive site BuyYourCar.co.uk, all of that is about to change.

They have introduced a new service and MOT centre comparison site which allows users to input the make and model of their vehicle along with the area in which they live. Within seconds a list of centres and garages are displayed and sorted by proximity to the postcode. The listings also include comprehensive pricing structures for each garage.

The site couldn’t be easier to use and it enables motorists to find the best deal in their area in a matter of minutes. Considering that MOTs and services are generally annual occurrences, it could save you £££s for years to come.

Drug Cannon Car

We’ve seen some pretty odd customisations in our time from the mandatory spoiler on a used Seat Ibiza or suicide doors on a Hyundai Trajet, but this one most definitely takes the biscuit. The car in question appears to be a Dodge Ram 50 pickup, and the owner has fitted a cannon into the trucks bed.

The cannon worked through a connection to the engine which builds up air pressure in order to launch up to 13 kilos of marijuana in one blast. Apparently it was being used to fire the drugs over the Mexican border, into America where presumably, some rapscallion will be waiting to retrieve the merchandise. The car has now been seized by the Mexicali police. Don’t expect to find the cannon on any car part sites just yet, as we are not sure that it is in line with certain health and safety regulations.drugcannon

We also can’t imagine that it would go down to well at any servicing garages, and you may struggle to pass your MoT.
