2003 Mercedes E55 AMG w/ Hand Controls - One Take
TheSmokingTire


Published on Jun 28, 2017
This 2003 Mercedes E55 AMG is the most recent in a long line of German sports sedans owned by Andria, a paraplegic woman who uses hand controls. These E55's are a screaming bargain on the used market, with clean examples to be had well under $20,000 for a 500-horsepower supercharged V8, rear-wheel drive, and German precision and feel. But as Andria tells us, the challenge lies in the maintenance costs.

Check out Andria's YouTube channel here:

I believe there are a few members that have experience with this. BB and Usury come to mind real quick. If no one chimes in send them a PM.

We take the B16B powered Mini to a classic car meet with hundreds of Mini owners. But will they be as enthusiastic about it as we are or will they be unimpressed with the Honda power plant inside the beloved Mini...

The £10 MILLION Rolls-Royce Sweptail is the MOST EXPENSIVE New Car EVER!
Shmee150


Published on Jul 5, 2017
The Rolls-Royce Sweptail is modern day coachbuilding at its finest, and it's also the most expensive new car ever with an estimated price tag of £10 million. There will only be one Sweptail built and here it is to take a look around.

The lucky owner of the car has spent 4-5 years working closely with Rolls-Royce to create the Sweptail, a totally bespoke commission and a one-off product. Based upon the Rolls-Royce Phantom VII Coupe with a 6.75l V12 it features numerous special touches along with the styling of traditional 1930s Rolls-Royces.

The Sweptail includes a champagne bottle ready in the central armrest, a hat shelf behind the front occupants, umbrella and laptop bag stowed in the door arches, a crystal Spirit of Ecstasy and the largest panoramic glass roof used on a road car. Those are just some of the special features on the Sweptail, but when you look up more closely you can see the simplicity of the interior dashboard, the curvaceous nature of the panels wrapping the edges of the exterior and the fastback style rear hatch.

On the Rolls-Royce stand behind we can take a look at the new Dawn Black Badge, a car that raises the stakes for the ultimate convertible cruiser. With more power, visually aggressive highlights and oozing style, it's quite something!

Thanks for watching, Tim

The NEW 700bhp Bentley Supersports in Action!
Shmee150


Published on Jul 7, 2017
Bentley have introduced a bit of a monster in the form of the new 700bhp Continental GT Supersports. That makes it the most powerful car the company have ever produced and after we go for a quick walkaround, BenzeneBen jumps in for a run up the hillclimb with Derek Bell during the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

With 1,017Nm and 710PS from the W12 up front and powering all 4 wheels it is also boasts a top speed of 209mph and it'll get as far as 60mph in just 3.4 seconds. The car also introduces technology such as torque vectoring by braking to control the rear wheels.

Benzene takes the reigns for this one in his first video shot solo, be nice! Piloting the car is Le Mans winner Derek Bell, who even aged 75 can still peddle up the course with quite some pace.

Thanks for watching, Tim

This is an installation video of the Z-Pak from Raybestos on a 4L60E transmission. I use this regularly on all my Heavy Duty and Performance Transmission builds. A regular stack up is ideal for regular commuting, but if you tow and abuse your vehicle, in a fun way, then you'll need to upgrade to this set up.
