Of course all in all, who am I to judge?  I've never driven any of these incredible machines. 

Same here, but it's fun to think about

lol...  ::)

my cubicle (from a parallel universe when I used to wear a suit and tie) was plastered with magazine tearouts --


Cubical?

I wish I had that luxury these days.

This is what my kitchen table currently looks like.  [scared] Ya'd think that without being able to eat, I could hold my girlish figure....but alas, no!


haha.. I know what you mean Rick...in the last year my dining room table has been used as a workbench about 363 days and for actually eating food about twice! Although...I my laser engraver and 3d printer are both in my "dining room" at the moment so that might have something to do with it...

The only thing that confuses me about the contents of your table is, what are the ski goggles for?   Which Canon is that?  an xl2?

No wheels on this one.  Just some epic rock with giant robots to start the day.  Let's do this.

Speakers up!




Though, truth be told, as fun as sliding and smoking up tires is... I would've much more appreciated a video dedicated to a pure attack on time.  The F40 and F50 are literally road-going Formula cars.  "Hooning" as the kids call it nowadays... not really on the design agenda, I don't think  ;)

I'll first acknowledge my ignorance towards both Koenigsegg and SSC; frankly, I know very little of both, except for the obvious that they are incredibly fast.


Here's some stuff on Koenigsegg you may enjoy





Search the brand at youtube and there's a bunch more

Very good stuff Paul.  And I think I may have spotted why you love Koenigsegg so much -- as evident at 4:26 in the factory tour of your first clip.  Take another peek and let me know if you see what I see.  Pay close attention to the goodies on the right hiding in the back... and of course the gorgeous banner on the wall  ;)

I did always appreciate the phantom insignia, bearing honor and tribute to the First Squadron of the Swedish Air Force.

I'll add to Tour de Koenigsegg with...



and

I actually was looking specifically for Festool in the videos  ;) 

I can't vouch for the rest of the world, though in all probability it is probably so -- all authorized Koenigsegg Service Centers in China MUST use Festool Automotive System for paint and body repair.  It's part of the agreement between Koenigsegg and the Service Centers as a way to guarantee exceptional quality of workmanship. 

Little bit of trivia knowledge I picked up while I visited TTS CN for Automotive Systems Training last year :)

Just been working for a guy who had a brand new DB9 in quantum silver (james bond colour). He was showing me around it , very nice. The best bit was the key , it has crystal glass on one end with the Aston logo inside. You push it in the dash to start the car and the crystal lights up.

Here you go found a video of a dbs with same start sounds great

I watched the movie "Rush" at the Thursday night premier, and sorry, but I was very underwhelmed, especially after the build up to it by various racing announcers. The story was told well, and the acting was pretty good, but there was little racing footage. The 1966 movie "Grand Prix" has always been one of my favorite films (and always will be), and I thought that "Rush" would bring all that to another level; not so. In fact, except for starts and other stuff on the pit straight, there wasn’t much of anything; hiss boo.

I don’t know if I would have spotted it on my own right away, but they mentioned in the NBC Sports 1/2 hour show about how the film was made that they used the same movie set (with changes to signs and such) for the pits and spectator stands. Not sure where they filmed the other parts of "various tracks they were supposedly at" other than the pit straight. I think the short part showing Lauda's crash at Nurburgring was the real original footage, so they probably didn't film at all there. (edit by dicktill: Wrong! Just did a search about this, and for the movie they did film (re-film it) it at the actual crash site. Kudos to Opie, Richie Cunningham, Steve Bolander, and er Ron Howard!) Anyway it lost some luster with all this; "Grand Prix" did it right!. And finally, although they had a slew of the real original 1976 F1 cars, they didn't show much in the way of closeups of suspension and engines.

Of all his gymkhana videos, I still like Gym 1 the best...
perhaps for how amateur / unpolished / raw the footage looks (as compared to say... Gym 5)
