Evo Shows Us Around the McLaren Senna

The details of the McLaren Senna are immense. This may be the most track-focused version of a supercar to-date… to the point where the car is actually illegal for road use in Race Mode.

It’s a badass car for badass people who live badass lives. People who will walk out of Starbucks with a big straw in a small iced latte, J-walk to their car across the street, and drive off in Race Mode right in front of a cop. Hell yeah, unlike airflow, society can’t hold this thing down!

Freiburger and Finnegan ride in the worst Mustang ever, and somehow succeed.

When it comes to old cars on YouTube, Roadkill’s ability to either make or break cars is second to none. They either go off with flying colors, or fail so spectacularly that words cannot describe what happens. Luckily, it’s all on film. Their “Disgustang”, a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 that had floors made more of rat droppings than steel, is back in action today as they attempt to drive it 1,300 miles from Los Angeles to a rally school north of the state line. Watch all the fun right here.

Roadkill finally gets the two legendary cars of the series–which one breaks first?

When it comes to my favorite Roadkill cars, it’s hard to beat the Dodge Super Bee owned by Freiburger or the ’55 Chevrolet gasser aka Blasphemi, owned by Mike Finnegan. The story behind each car is excellent (both built up from a production shell, but sharing few original drivetrain parts), they both pack a variant of the monster 426 Hemi (Bee has a 484 ci, Chevrolet has a 426 with all kinds of goodies), and both look and sound like pure evil unleashed upon God’s green earth. Which one will survive this episode? Which one will fall apart for no apparent (or likely, a catastrophic) reason? Watch below, and find out.

I’ve finished my LEGO Ferrari F40

Lego Ferrari F40 12

This is one of those gifts I had wanted, but couldn’t justify buying for myself as a young professional trying to spend money on ‘real’ things. My girlfriend, Gab, knew I wanted the LEGO Ferrari F40, though, and her Mom went over and above for my birthday and surprised me with it. Needless to say, I was quite surprised, and I got excited like¬†I did back when I was a kid. I thought it was clothes¬†because the box was a similar shape, but it was a LEGO Ferrari. SO AWESOME!

It took me a week or two to put it together, and I was astounded by LEGO’s attention to detail. I have a diecast model of an F40 to compare, and they really did account for everything.

Once finished, I figured I’d take some decent photos of it, like I would a real car. Enjoy!
