Subaru Nails what It’s like Driving as an Adult [VIDEO]

Do you remember being a kid and just wishing you could be an adult driving?  Subaru has captured this feeling perfectly with a new commercial for the 2015 Subaru Legacy.  It shows a dad coming home and offering the keys to his Subaru Legacy to his 5-year old son.  The son is currently driving a little blue electric car convertible.  His mind plays out all the scenarios that he will have to deal with driving the 2015 Subaru Legacy.  Going to the grocery store, having to pick-up his dad, getting a parking ticket, being stuck in a traffic jam, and going to the ATM.  Essentially all the “fun” things we do as adults driving a car.

A five-year-old boy learns that being a car owner may not be the freewheeling fantasy he was expecting — even if it is in the all-new 2015 Subaru Legacy.

Tushek TS 600 Supercar makes Epic Debut [VIDEO]

tushek ts 600

Ever heard of Tushek & Spiegel?  We are guessing you most likely haven't heard of this Slovenian based supercar company but they have hopes to make a slick and ridiculously fast supercar called the Tushek TS 600.

Supercar guys live and die by numbers, so what are they?  The company is expecting the Tushek TS 600 to weigh a mere 2,470 pounds, which is extremely light even for a supercar.  The car is expected to be equipped with 695 horsepower which makes the power to weight ratio 1 horsepower for each 3.55 pounds of weight.  The engine is speculated to be an Audi tuned 4.2-liter V-8.  According to our math, which is never very good, the car should go from 0-60 mph in about 3 seconds.

How did these Tusek TS 600 engineers keep weight down so much?  The engineers were obsessed with weight reduction like a Los Angeles celebrity trainer cutting the fat from movie stars.  For the chassis the used a combination of carbon and titanium which makes it incredibly lightweight yet strong.  Also they wheels are fitted with carbon-ceramic brakes.  This gives this supercar a low center of gravity and low unsprung mass.  So we assume handling will be pretty sweet on the TS 600.

Tushek & Spigel plan to start production of the Tushek TS 600 sometimes this year.  How many will they make.   They are limiting production to just 60 cars which includes two models, ‘Strada' the road model and the track-only ‘Pista’ which add an additional 50 horsepower.  The company wants to reach production capacity of 300 per year within the next 10 years.

This is not the first supercar to some out of Slovenia.  There was also the Tushek Renovatio T500 which was the company's first foray into the supercar market.  It seems they've benefiteed from the development of the Renovatio T500 and learned a lot about how to make an ever better super car with the Tushek TS 600.  At least we can only hope.

Brazilian Supermodel Adriana Lima encourages Everyone to be Football Fans [VIDEOS]

With the 2014 World Cup officially kicking off today Kia has decided to use a smart marketing tactic, a beautiful women.  In this case Adriana Lima, a ridiculously hot Brazilian Supermodel.

Since most supermodels are Made in Brazil, and the World Cup is taking place there this year, Adriana Lima is trying hard to encourage everyone to be football fans for 1 month.  Kia is dubbing the campaign “For One Month, Let’s All be Fútbol Fans.”  The TV spots show the supermodel convincing people, ok just guys, to watch the world's most popular sport instead of what Americans usually watch. Check out the TV spots with the Brazilian Supermodel right here;

Adriana Lima – Football vs. Futbul

One commercial shows the supermodel going to a football practice.  All the guys practicing notice Adriana Lima, since she is Adriana Lima.  She puts a soccer ball on the ground and says, “In my country this is Futbol.”  and kicks it to one of the players.

Adriana Lima Brings Futbul to a Sports Bar

This TV commercial shows the stunning Brazilian Supermodel in a typical American sports bar.  She changes the music to traditional Brazilian music and then changes the channel from NASCAR to “Futbol.”  Definitely a good choice.

Adriana Lima and models Transform a Man Cave

Here we have Adriana Lima transforming a Football and Basebell mancave into a “Futbol” mancave along with two other smoking hot models.  She then changes the channel from Basebell to Futbol.  Something all the guys don't seem to mind.

It should be obvious but “Fútbol” means Football in Portuguese, the language people speak in Brazil, and is what we call Soccer.  Just thought I should mention that in case someone out there wasn't able to figure it out.

While I really like these TV commercials, what was not so smart was that Kia tried to mix in the Kia Optima and Kia Soreto in the TV spots.  Will any man seriously notice those over Adriana Lima?  Still they know that supermodels work in advertising as this is the second time the Korean automaker has used Lima.  “The reaction to Adriana Lima’s appearance in ‘Drive the Dream’ was overwhelming”  said Michael Sprague, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Kia.  Lima was used in the 2012’s “Drive the Dream” Kia Super Bowl commercial which also featured Motley Crue.  “…with the World Cup being staged in her home country of Brazil and her love for the game it was a natural fit to partner again and add a bit of glamour and humor to our ‘fútbol’ campaign.” continued Sprague.

All the ads will make broadcast debuts when group play officially begins on June 12th.  Kia TV commercials will be airing on various channels carrying the World Cup which includes ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes (Spanish).  Kia is sponsoring the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil which is why they made these TV spots.  Hopefully they will make many more commercials that feature Brazilian Supermodels.

Dubai has the World’s Fastest Police Cars [VIDEO]

Lamborghini Aventador

Dubai has the world's fastest police cars.  Here is a rundown of what this oil rich Middle Eastern country's police officers get to cruise around in to fight crime;

  • Bugatti Veryon
  • Lamborghini Aventador
  • McLaren MP4-12C
  • Aston Martin 177
  • Audi R8
  • Ferrari FF
  • Bentley Continental GT
  • Nissan GT-R
  • Ford Mustang

Sounds more like a billionaire's car collection than a police fleet, right?  Well actually the Dubai police force says these cars are more for good PR with the people of Dubai and those visiting the country.  It allows them to breakdown barriers between and the public and when the Bugatti and Lamborghini go out cruising the social media and public impact is always quite a spectacle.

Could police PR be done in a less flashy way?  Probably, but if you've got the money for a stable full of police supercars, why not?

Fast and Furious 7 made with RC Cars [VIDEO]

fast and furious 7

Have you seen the Fast and Furious 7? Of course you haven't, since the movie has not come out yet.  However a fan decided to shoot a scene from the movie using radio-controlled cars otherwise known as RC cars.

The video is pretty epic and was really well done.  It honors the past Fast and Furious movies along with some cool stunts which are pretty crazy for RC cars in our opinion.  This is just what you would expect from the car movie franchise or at least a recreation of it.  “Cars” featured in the video include a Nissan GT-R Nismo,  a ZL1 Camaro, a Chevy Camaro RS, and the Nissan Silvia S15.  There are also some cops trying to ruin the fast fun.  You might also see some superheros in the recreated scene.

It should be noted that the video was made in memory of Paul Walker who played Brian O'Connor in the Fast and Furious movies.  Paul Walker died last December in a car accident while driving with his friend.
