One Lap of the Web: High plains drifters, Vettel FX and supercars in LondonFri, 05 Jul 2013 00:00:00 -0700
We spend a lot of time on the Internet -- pretty much whenever we're not driving, writing about or working on cars. Since there's more out there than we'd ever be able to cover, here's our daily digest of car stuff on the Web you may not otherwise have heard about.
YoTtube user Munch997 uploaded eight minutes of supercar glory, filmed on London streets. Viewers can check out the Ferrari F50, F12 Berlinetta, Lamborghini Aventador, Aston Martin DBS Volante and more. As you can see by the shop fronts, this obviously is a ritzy area of the city.
Sebastian Vettel took delivery of the first Infiniti FX Vettel edition. The Formula One driver is part of the company's performance arm now. The Vettel FX starts out as an FX50, and ends up as a 120,000-euro street machine.
If you're looking for a little “Turn Back the Clock” action this morning head over to YouTube where we're watching the Callaway Corvette Twin Turbo Sledgehammer do its thing. The clip is a little gritty, but the sound is great.
Monster Energy posted a video on Tuesday of the Driftpocalypse. Bikers Ernie Virgil and Nick Brocha are released from a fictional jail to find cars have taken over their motorcycle drifting lanes. They take to the shop, hit the montage, and take back the streets. It's 12 minutes long, so block out some time.
