Prius limo

“It’s a shame that Ford don’t offer the S-Max in North America, because then this Prius enthusiast wouldn’t have had to go to all this trouble. You see, he created the FrankenPrius from two halves of two damaged Prii in order to create a 6-seater with decent fuel economy. Ford’s S-Max offers available seating for seven and in diesel form, gets better economy than even a standard Prius.”

Man Drives From NY to LA in 31 hours and 4 minutes

“Alex Roy was just recognized as the record holder for driving from NY to Santa Monica pier in 31 hours and 4 minutes, besting the time set by “David Diem and Doug Turner clocked in a Ferrari 308 during the 1983 US Express run” of 32 hours and seven minutes. That’s 89MPH for over 31 hours. What’s made me especially proud is that Alex wrote about automotive laser jammers and radio scanners for Gizmodo under a previous regime. The seven time world rally champ avoided cops and found his way with a dash full of gadgets, including multiple scanners, jammers, detectors, and other mods on his BMW M5. Equipment is documented in the video above, but one thing not emphasized is that the guy had a plane spotting police activity en route. The actual time was verified by gas station timestamps on credit card receipts and by Jalopnik editors who witnessed the start and finishes, but Guinness won’t have anything to do with verifying illegal acts. The actual race happened a little over a year ago, but Alex couldn’t tell anyone of his exploits until the statute of limitations was up in all states he drove through. Congrats to Alex for his spectacular performance.

This Maserati does 177mph

“The GranTurismo is never lacking in the power department. Sixty mph arrives in about 5 seconds, and when unconstrained by local laws, the GranTurismo can reach a top speed of 177 mph. Unfortunately we were not on the Autobahn, but during short stints at triple-digit speeds the GranTurismo felt very stable and planted—as if one could stay north of the century mark all day.
