DreamWorks has just unveiled the trailer for their racing themed movie Turbo. As the logo will lead you to assume, the action in this animated film revolves around a snail who for reasons I’m sure will become clear wants to be some kind of racer. Watch the first trailer below:
There are Ads, and then there are ADS. This is the latter. Lincoln has just come out with a “reintroduction” video for the brand, which we are apparently also now calling the Lincoln Motor Company. I like it – both the name and the video. While the odds of management being able to turn Lincoln around are still long, I’ll cautiously take this little cinematic treat as a good start.
The video starts with a quick shot of the MKZ, then shuttles you images of the brand’s classic cars, before bringing you back to the MKZ. This makes sense as a lot of the brand is resting on the MKZ for the short term. The video is heavy on nostalgia and emotion, and we’ll admit it worked on us. Go ahead and watch it above, just don’t blame us if you feel like conquering the world afterward.
I’ve just wasted an entire Sunday, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman’s epic motorcycle adventure is now streaming for free on Hulu. Wait, don’t go! I’ve embedded the series below so you don’t have to go anywhere.
For those unfamiliar with the title, Long Way Round chronicles the pair of English gentlemen as they ride a pair of BMW GS motorcycles from London to New York – the hard way. From Europe to Central Asia and Russia, over the Bering Strait and through North America. It is (obviously) a huge journey with many ups and downs along way. The best part is that you don’t even have to be into bikes to enjoy the series.
So go on the, click play. Just make sure you clear your schedule before you do because you’ll be here for a while. Enjoy.
When DrivingScene grows up it wants to be Depth of Speed. Our friend Josh is currently crisscrossing the US of A recording any auto greatness he comes across along the way. He just started his trip, but his latest video might just be his favorite memory of the whole adventure. In this video we meet a car-guy’s Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. By car-guy, we mean that he actually drives this piece of sculpture regularly and has no desire to hit it from rain or rock chips behind some velvet ropes, and for that he’s our kind of people. Watch the video to hear that magnificent engine at full stride, and while you do realize that this beast requires 4 gallons of oil that must be changed every 1000 miles. Beauty has its price…
There have been a plethora of great automotive videos that have been released in the last few days. This one caught our eye immediately and has been on replay ever since. I’m not sure what you do with your time off, but apparently the Sauber engineers enjoy meticulously cutting their hard work in half. Over two years. Just for your viewing pleasure. Cheif Designer Matt Morris then gives us a walk-around of all the major components of the car. Enjoy (I know you will) and expect links to the other great videos we’ve been seeing in the coming days.
One of our favorite sites Depth of Speed recently enjoyed a track day at one of the best race tracks in North America with an automotive icon. Their life must be really hard… Watch the video above to enjoy the raucous sounds of an original JDM Nissan Skyline GT-R courtesy of JDM Legends. Also be sure to check out Depth of Speed as they are currently on a cross-country trip documenting anything automotively unique along the way.
Behold, our video review of the 2012 Hyundai Accent. We recently took this little car out on some back roads and put it through it’s paces, bringing along a 2002 Accent as well to see how much far Hyundai has come in the last 1o years. Watch the video and see what we thought of the little hatchback.
