Driving the Bugatti at 210 m.p.h.!

Dan Neil of the WSJ got the opportunity of a lifetime: test drive a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse—how’s that for a name? Check out the experience. I’ve been around a few supersports cars and have driven over 200 mph three or four times. But those were breathless, grit-your-teeth experiments that lasted only a second or two.

By Crooked Steps – Soundgarden

Nothing says badass like a “gang,” but director Dave Grohl takes a little bit of a sting out of those troublemaking lads from Soundgarden by having them cruise the streets on Segways in the band’s latest video for ‘By Crooked Steps.’ Segways? But…watch to the very end of the clip for a special guest cameo from a certain EDM superstar posing as the arresting officer… Source:...
