Watch Football Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo Drives The New Bugatti Chiron: Video
Whenever a celebrity gets to drive a car it is definitely fun to watch. What makes this video even more special is the fact that in this video you will be watching the famous football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo driving one of the most powerful production supercars of this planet.
Bugatti recently released the video of CR7 test driving the all-new Chiron just before the French Automaker starts the deliveries of this beast. There is no denying the fact that CR7 is one of the most celebrated athletes in the world and has won several accolades to his name including the World Player of the Year, reigning European Champion, winner.
He already owns several supercars including Lamborghini Aventador, BMW M6, Bentley Continental GTC, Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, an Audi Q7 and off course! His recently purchased prized possessions the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport variant. At one time it was even reported that he owned a total of 19 cars at once.
In this video, you can watch him checking out the new Chiron and test driving the car on track. From what it looks like from his expression that he surely feel in love with the new supercar and we are pretty sure that he will add one soon to his collection.
The successor of the Veyron packs a lot of punch from the 8.0 L W16 quad- turbocharged unit, the same engine which used to power the Veyron now produces about 1500 ps of peak power and 1600 Nm of peak torque. The Chiron is capable of accelerating from 0-100 km/h mark in just 2.5 seconds while it can reach a maximum top speed of electronically restricted 420 km/h mark.
A Performance Oriented Lamborghini Huracan Is Heading Our Way: Video
The Lamborghini Huracan Performante is surely going to be something that we all have been waiting for a long time. Lamborghini is once again digging their roots and pulling out some of their most insane tricks to impress their customers by presenting the most potent member of their Huracan family. I mean that is what they are known for right?
The Italian sports car manufacturer has already dropped a new teaser video which showcased the future car. The car seen in the video was covered in heavy camouflage, and there is no denying the fact that it surely looked intimidating with the addition of that huge rear wing and the front spoiler.
The entire video was shot on the Nurburgring, and the reports also suggest that the new car was able to set a new lap record as well. The car will also get a new feature called "Aereodinamica Lamborghini Attiva."
Now, don’t get confused with the term because the new name is basically an advanced active aerodynamic system. The Coupe gets plenty of new aerodynamics on the front splitter and also a new rear wing. These are exclusively available with this new performance-oriented version of the car and thus won’t be available with the standard model.
Apart from the Active aerodynamics, the bull will also actually shed around 40 kilograms from the original variant, courtesy the new forged composite body materials. However, it will still get the same 5.2 Liter V10 unit which will perhaps be tuned slightly different to produce even more power and torque figures. The Huracan Performante will perhaps also get a tweaked suspension setup and recalibrated gear ratios to match with all those increased power figures.
The car will most probably make its official debut perhaps just a few days ahead of the 2017 Geneva Motor show.

What Just Happened Here! Ford Mustang Received 2 Stars In Euro NCAP Crash Test
To everyone’s surprise Ford Mustang actually scored just 2 stars at the recently conducted Euro NCAP crash test. This also happens to be the lowest score received by a renowned manufacturer since the year 2008.
The Mustang Coupe scored really badly at the frontal offset test, while the dummies get good protection of the knees and femurs while later after further analysis it was revealed that the driver’s head had ’bottomed out’ the airbag which means that the airbag did not provided adequate space pressure to the airbag thus resulting the dummies head hitting the steering wheel, while the side passengers head collided with the dashboard all because of the insufficient inflation of the dashboard. This is the reason why the scores of the front crash were penalized. The front passenger’s protection was good but the chest protection was adequate in full width rigid barrier test. The rear seat passengers on the other hand slipped under the lap portion of the seatbelt thus compromising on the safety of e knee, femur and pelvis body region thus resulting in weak score.
The Tests on the front seats and head restraints also demonstrated a marginal level of protection against any whiplash injury during the event of a rear-end collision. The current generation which is one sale is also not equipped with an autonomous emergency braking (AEB). The 10 year old dummy which sat on the booster cushion which gave the occupant limited rear space. In the frontal offset test protection of the 10 year old dummy was rated as the least adequate. In the side barrier test the safety ratings of the dummy was good but the head protection was not adequate.
Nissan Creates World’s Largest Map Outline Of India With The GT-R: Video
Nissan Motor India is celebrating the 68th year of the Republic Day by setting a record to pay their tribute to India and its people.

Nissan decided to choose Sambhar Lake in Rajasthan as the location for the record attempt for its level and dry lakebed surface. The soft enough soil was perfect to leave a deep mark impression of the map. The entire incident was captured by a flying drone from above.
The whole thing was done with pin point precision which was possible because of the GT-R’s smooth handling and crisp response. All these abilities helped the car to manoeuvre through the twists and turns which were needed to draw the entire map. To draw the entire map which now sits over a span of three square kilometres the sports cars ride and handling capability was put to its ultimate test.
Just to make sure that the map was accurate, the entire map was created by plotting the co-ordinates on a GPS device. Not only multiple laps were done to actually make things accurate but the entire thing was also recorded by the flying drone and cameras fitted on the car.
