Car tuning video of the week presented by Fancy Tuning.
The people of New York along with all the tourists that frequently roam the streets were in for a treat the other day. On a trip through Times Square people spotted some rare cars and even a Batmobile replica. This comes shortly after the Colorado shooting for the new Dark Knight film which we are very sorry for the event that occurred that evening. Meanwhile, spectators in New York were able to feast their eyes on a new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 that was wrapped in chrome and is most likely the first of its kind.

Check out the video and more pictures of all the work below. Fitting 32’s on a Chevy Camaro SS isn’t easy.

Ken Block and DC Shoes have just released the Gymkhana FIVE: Ultimate Urban Playground; San Francisco for our viewing pleasure.

GYM5 was based in the streets of San Francisco and consists of fast precise driving skills caught on raw video. Ken Block turned the whole city into his personal playground as you can see they completely shut down the entire Bay Bridge for him to drive through. Several large parts of the city were shut down for this epic four day filming.
On a special episode of Head 2 Head, Jason Cammisa from Automobile Magazine was at the scene to watch this Bugatti Veyron take on the all new Lamborghini Aventador. This drag race features two of the most expensive cars in the world with the most power out of the factory. You can also watch the beginning of the video to see the Lexus LFA and McLaren MP4-12C battle it out on the landing strip. See who can try to top the Bugatti Veyron, king of the super cars.
Here is an interesting video from Road & Track where they tested the all new 2013 BMW M5 against its American rival the Cadillac CTS-V. Last year, the Caddy took the victory by a slim margin, so watch the video after the jump to see who takes the honor this year. From the factory, the Cadillac CTS-V holds a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 producing 556 horsepower. The new competition, 2013 BMW M5 now carries a 4.4-liter twin turbocharged V8 outputting a similar 553 HP. Now the pricing difference, $64,515 for the Cadillac or $89,900 for the BMW.
This insane crash involving Anthony Davidson and his Toyota TS030 Hybrid has recently occurred at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race. Davidson was trying to lap the AF Corse Ferrari driven by Piergiuseppe Peranzzini, however the Italian obviously did not see him and took out the back end. This sent the Toyota sideways where it eventually caught some wind underneath to send it flying through the air. Both cars crashed into the barrier and Peranzzini was able to walk out after his Ferrari rolled over. Anthony Davidson climbed out of his Toyota, but laid down shortly after and was taken to the medical center. Doctors confirm that he is conscious, but looks to be suffering from shock and back pain.
You have to be kidding me, this Hummer H2 project is one of the craziest trucks we have ever seen. Whoever built this monstrosity called it the Black Knight, and obvious felt the need for attention. It has everything from Lambo doors to multiple machine gunes, swords and axes bolted onto the exterior. There are more lights and LEDs flashing than you can even count, but that didn’t stop the owner from showing it off in these videos. Prepare yourself to watch the Hummer H2 from hell.
A fellow reader sent us this video of the King of Europe drift event sponsored by Dotz Tuning Wheels. This took place in Poznan, Poland and featured 67 tuned cars to hit the track along with the Dotz Drift Team. Three of their top drivers, Adam Kerenyi, Sebastien Cornec and Diego Quaranta killed it, while you can see some of the powerful rides in the video below. This drift event was mostly made up of Nissan’s and BMW’s, however a couple Toyota’s and large trucks were seen tearing it up as well.
If you missed out on the insane Honda S2000 wheelie at the TX2K12 event in Texas, then be sure you don’t pass up all the hot car girls, bikes and bikini contest that went down as well. This car show keeps getting better every year and is one of the main attractions for spring break if you are a gear head living in the large state of Texas. Check out all the fine car girls and motorcycles after the jump.
Check out this Honda S2000 wheelie at the TX2K12 drag racing event in Texas this past weekend. It’s amazing how much power these tuners are able to pack into the small Honda S2000 sports car. Just because you can fit a 2JZGTE in the engine bay, doesn’t mean the car can handle it. If only they could make the Honda S2000 AWD, then it might have been able to take the Toyota Supra off the line.
