Ferrari F50 Wakeboarding

Peons. Peasants. Plebians. Ohioans. You think the videos that show you water skiing or wakeboarding behind pickup trucks are cool? They aren’t. Wakeboarding behind a Ferrari F50, though, is most assuredly awesome.

Those over-wealthy Einsteins at YouTube channel Tax The Rich have released their latest stunt, which shows a charming yellow F50 towing a wakeboarder down what looks like an irrigation canal. It really is as cool as it sounds.

Smart ForfourWe drive the 2016 Smart Forfour

The redesigned Smart Fortwo is a better offering than ever before, what with its fully reworked, Renault Twingo underpinnings. And while the diminutive two-door will be headed to the US relatively soon, the Forfour isn’t currently on the docket for American sales. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Our man Noah Joseph reports in today’s Quick Spin.

Video: Watch Xcar go Razor Cart Crazy

Filed under: ,

XCAR Crazy Cart video

Working at Autoblog is a lot of fun. Working at Xcar, though, seems like it’s somehow even better, if this video is any indication.

Xcar‘s Alex Goy and Drew Stearne have apparently been wreaking havoc in their UK offices with their avid use of Razor’s hoontastic Crazy Cart. An irate HR manager reached out to the two, asking them to move their antics back to the basement and spare the office’s walls of further collisions.

Naturally, the best way for the pair to move the single-wheeled carts downstairs was to tear through the office one last time. The results are just as sensational as you might expect.

Report: Bentley to call its upcoming crossover Bentayga?

Filed under: , ,

Bentley SUV prototype

Development of Bentley’s forthcoming utility vehicle is almost complete, and the British automaker has painted a vivid picture of what to expect: otherworldly luxurious, a range of powertrains including a twelve-pot and a hybrid, and a price tag that is sure to eclipse any other SUV or crossover on the market. One of the biggest questions still remaining, however, is what Bentley will call the thing, but we might have our answer right here.

According to Autovisie (the car section of Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf), Bentley has registered the name Bentayga – taken from a rock formation on Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands, that Spanish archipelago off the coast of Morocco.

The concept was originally showcased as the EXP 9 F. Though that handle was never expected to make it to production, the F supposedly stood for Falcon, leading to speculation that the final version would carry that name. But if the trademark application is anything to go by, we could be looking in the end at the Bentley Bentayga.
