The Flatmobile recently entered the Guinness Book of Records as the lowest street legal car: the car is only 48 cm in hight!
The Flatmobile was built by Perry Watkins, a huge fan of the '60s Batmobile (this is also where the name comes!) The car is powered by a jet engine fitted behind the internal combustion engine at the very rear of the car. It is a home built gas turbine jet engine based around a Holset 685 turbocharger from a Volvo FL10 lorry.

Drag race: McLaren MP4-12C - Ferrari 458 - Porsche 997 Turbo
Here's an interesting drag race between the McLaren MP4-12C, Ferrari 458 Italia and Porsche 911 turbo. Hardly a definitive result, however, interesting to watch nonetheless. Most likely shot during the recent MP4-12C media event in Portimao, Portugal.
Just yesterday McLaren finally divulged the MP4-12C's specifications. With a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces a total of 600 PS (441 kW / 592 bhp) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque, the MP4-12C does the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in 3.3 seconds (3.1 with special Corsa tires) and has a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph). 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) comes in at 9.1 seconds, 8.9 with the Corsa racing tires.
This also happens to be DidItForebode America's first ever Youtube Video.
