VIDEO: That 350hp mid-engine Hyundai RM16 in action

Just a quick update with a far-too-short video I shot in the evening. The little mid-engine Hyundai has generated a massive wave of interest around the world, but its appearances on the Nürburgring have been all too short and sporadic.

VIDEO: New Bentley Barnato Speed-Six?

Almost a year ago, Bentley teased us all with a rather dapper 911-fighting sportscar concept, the two-seater EXP Speed 6. In their own words it’s a “lighter, sportier, Bentley”

Since then it’s been no big secret that the guys and girls at Crewe have been exploring the concept a little further. It’s even got a name, the Bentley “Barnato”, after Le Mans winner Woolf Barnato.

VIDEO: Watch Farfus go 6m14s BTG in a BMW M4 DTM

What’s even more mind boggling than that headline is that he had a passenger, and he wasn’t even trying that hard.

In fact, he slows down several times (for reasons as yet unknown) and even has time to high-five the lucky guy on the terror-seat!

You’ll just have to pick up your jaw from off of that floor and check out the video further down the page. It’s worth it.

VIDEO: Last VLN of 2016 was a muddy hell…
