Another amazing factory video. This time it’s Red Bull F1 design, testing, and fabrication.

If you are serious about xactos, glue sticks, and cutting mats, you might have one of these VisualSpicer papercraft cars.
How does one even start learning how to do this insane driving? I guess by doing donuts in a parking lot, right? I love all the varied camera work for the video. They get some really interesting POV’s. Plus Kalis gets a little cameo in the street car. I hope they do NYC!
In what looks like utter insanity, two drivers are going to do a double loop that was inspired/sponsored by the Hot Wheels cars and tracks that we all used to have as kids. Though most of the time my brother and my Hot Wheels were jumping off homemade jumps only to crash and burn.
Not sure how I haven’t seen this Gymkhana 2.1 video before. Say what you like about Dyrdek, but he makes some pretty funny stuff.
Saw a few of these very nice Mini Coupe’s in the Halloween parade last week. Not sure how I feel about corporations backing the parade floats, but they were definitely cool cars.
There is some seriously insane driving going on in this DC short. They have surely become more than just a little shoe company from the 90′s. Definitely fun to watch.
Designboom recently took a tour of the Ferrari factory in Maranello. Definitely not the assembly line of old, the Ferrari line only turns out 10-12 cars per day. Compare that with the Ford line in Cologne that produced up to 1700 cars per day.
With all that Illustrator lets you do these days, it’s cool to see such smooth curves drawn by hand. Painted by Ryan Lange, these limited edition decks will be on display and sold by Code of Conduct Chicago. More info here
An interesting video primer for Go Faster, a new book about the early days of graphic design of racecar bodies.
