This is what will happen to 350Z when a tyre blow at 350km/h. The driver Daijiro Inada tried to beat the high speed record in the Silver State Classic held in the state of Nevada. His goal was to break the record in the unlimited category. The car was powered by an VQ35DE engine and using the 3.8 liter stroker , together with the help of a T88 turbo it managed to reach 800bhp.

It's not every day that a Lamborghini LM002 goes up for sale. The sole crossover (no pun intended) between Lambo's tractor and supercar divisions, the LM002 forged the path for later exotic sport-utes like the Porsche Cayenne and Spyker D8 Peking-to-Paris SSUV decades earlier. But the Rambo Lambo, as it was known, was sold as a four-door short-bed pickup of sorts. That didn't cut it for the famously car crazy Sultan of Brunei, who apparently had this custom LM002 wagon built to his specifications.
It can seat seven in exotic opulence, complete with leather upholstery, burlwood veneer, television screens, DVD players, electric everything...oh, and a 450 horsepower V12 borrowed from the Countach. Not too shabby, especially for a sport-ute from 1987.
This particular LM is said to be the only one of its kind, and it was reportedly owned by former BMW and Volkswagen chief Bernd Pischetsrieder after it left
. It's now available for purchase in Brunei at an undisclosed price, and is sure to terrify the other SUVs at your kid's soccer practice – to say nothing of the gas stations you're sure to frequent with this sort of beast. Germany
