Demonstration laps of the Chaparral 2J driven by Vic Elford during the 2005 Monterey Historics at Laguna Seca. The 2J had two fans at the rear driven by a snowmobile engine to evacuate air from beneath the car, sucking the car to the road. In the video you can hear the snowmobile engine over the bass note of the Chevy V8. Phil Hill & Jim Hall are driving two of the other Chaparrals.

Mitchell Stingray Prototype
Sebastian Vettel driving GT5 RedbullX1 prototype at Nürburgring GP Course
Find more GT5 videos on http://gtchannel.com. In a world where modern
professional racing is restricted by regulations, the X1 is a machine born
from a fantastic "what if" dream of Gran Turismo: "What would the fastest
racing car on Earth, free of any and all regulations, look like?" And the
only way to experience it is in Gran Turismo 5. Initially the X1 Prototype
was a single-seater canopied prototype wing car with covered front wheels.
Powered by a 1500ps direct-injection V6 Twin turbo, on paper the performance would have been
spectacular, producing a top speed of 400km/h (248.6mp/h) and a maximum
lateral acceleration of 6G. But once Red Bull Racing was brought on board
to be a partner, the X1 really took off. Adrian Newey, master aerodynamic
engineer and Red Bull Racing's chief technical officer, suggested "Fan Car"
technology, a long-held dream of his, be added to the design of the X1
Prototype. A "fan car" is a vehicle having a fan mechanism which forces the
air out from underneath the car to reduce air pressure under the car's
floor. The resulting suction draws the car to the ground surface and
creates a massive amount of downforce. And because it can create downforce
regardless of the vehicle's current speed, it dramatically raises it's
cornering speed capability even in low speed corners. Thanks to the insight
of Mr. Newey, the X1 Prototype design was transformed. A large fan was
added to the rear end of the body to implement the Fan Car technology.
Plus, Newey provided additional input into the the design of the front and
rear wings and rear diffuser, dramatically refining the vehicle's
aerodynamics. As a result, the virtual X1 Prototype was able to achieve an
astonishing level of performance. Its new top speed was 450km/h
(279.6mp/h), with a maximum lateral acceleration reaching up to 8.75G,
pushing the vehicle to the very limits of what a normal human body can
Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed
records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911.
(Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw )
Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob
Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of
the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @
69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record
speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903.
This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920!
Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and
is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on
a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical
significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it
amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens
witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great
moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011.
Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz
and other historic speed record contenders:
displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³
bore 185 mm / 7.28 in
stroke 200 mm / 7.87 in
power 149.1 kw / 200 bhp @ 1600 rpm
specific output 9.3 bhp per litre
bhp/weight 137.93 bhp per tonne

Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that
only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on
official racing events.
This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing
events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more
money than driving skills...
(Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.)
Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10
with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up,
don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video.
The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with
Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is
preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from
Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre"
is incorrect spelling.
Red Bull Project X2010 prototype - the construction
Red Bull has released a new video that shows how the X2010 (aka X1
prototype) was transformed from a Gran Turismo 5 fixture into a full-scale
Built by Industrial Design Consultancy, the real life X2010 features
individually milled sections and a design created by Red Bull's Chief
Technical Officer Adrian Newey.
While the mock up doesn't have a powertrain, the virtual X2010 has a
twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that produces
1500 PS (1103 kW / 1479 hp) and 714 Nm (527 lb-ft) of torque. This immense
power in combination with a fan that creates a suction effect with immense
downforce allows the futuristic car to accelerate from 0-60 mph (96 km/h)
in 1.4 seconds, 0-200 mph (322 km/h) in 6.1 seconds, and onto a top speed
of 280 mph (450 km/h). Lateral acceleration can reach 8.75G - at the very
limit of what the human body can withstand.
