audi_episode2The new Audi A1 episode movie: In the second episode of “The next big thing” the pursuers are very close on their heels and a spectacular car chase begins. Then John (Justin Timberlake) and Toni (Dania Ramirez) are contacted by a mysterious person.

A car chase scene on busy downtown streets, bullets flying that can’t seem to hit a target, and dialogue that needs help from Quentin Tarantino with lines like, “Cut the action-movie sh**. I don’t have time for this.” Forget the supporting characters, it’s the A1 that is the star in this episode.

This is only the second episode, and the rest will be released every Tuesday every week for the next 4 weeks. We’ll be featuring each episode on this blog.

Video: Audi A1 "The Next Big Thing" Mini Series Part 1 of 6

Audi_A1_thenextbigthing_screenshot1The new Audi A1 episode movie: The first episode shows John Frank (Justin Timberlake) in a café where he meets the attractive and mysterious Toni (Dania Ramirez) who is being followed. Through her, John is driven into “The next big thing” – action!

Looking at pretty photos of a car is really nice but nothing beats watching a car in full motion action. BMW’s The Hire short clips were the talk of the town during its time and people still refer to them every now and then these days and I won’t deny that the Madonna short movie played a part in making me fall for the E39.

Now Audi is following the same footsteps with a 6 part mini-series featuring Justin Timberlake, Dania Ramirez and the Audi A1. The mini-series is called The Next Big Thing and is directed by Swedish filmmaker Henrik Sundgren.

FT-86 Gran Turismo 5 screen shot

This video is a quick look at a new car and new tracks for Gran Turismo 5, featuring the Toyota FT-86 Concept car. The rear-wheel drive coupe that will be badged as a Toyota was co-developed with Subaru (who provides the engine) and will make its world debut at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show. The name FT-86 is a nod to the popular RWD Corolla AE86 of the mid-1980s. The production version of the 2+2 FT-86 sports coupe, is due to go on sale towards the end of 2011. The engine is from Subaru and is a front-mounted, 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine, a naturally aspirated version of Subaru’s 2.0-liter flat flour normally found in the Impreza that Toyota will massage to boost output closer to 200 horsepower. This is the same engine that, when turbocharged, cranks out 250HP and is found in Subaru’s much loved WRX.

Top Gear goes for a ride with Ken Block

James May (Top Gear) visits Ken Block

Ken Block has achieved Internet fame with his gymkhana drifting practice videos. For guys (and gals) who aren’t afraid of having a little grease embedded in their fingerprints, Ken Block’s videos are simply visual artistry in motion.

Well, it seems that the producers at Top Gear were impressed with Ken’s skills and promptly send James May across the pond to the U.S. for a lesson in drifting – Ken Block style. Unless you’ve been camping out in Outer Mongolia or are still using a 56k dial-up Internet connection, you’ve probably seen Ken Block’s gymkhana practice video. As an added bonus, Ricky Carmichael (10 time motocross champion) literally jumps in and “BAM!”, kicks it up a notch Emeril-style.

BMW 130 tii

I suppose many of us can identify with that relentless (almost obsessive) pursuit for making something just a little bit better or striving for perfection. A great video by Daniel Michaelis that may strike a chord with a few viewers and brings it all together – visual performance, editing, and a soundtrack that hits all the right notes on cue. Whether you appreciate visual art, high performance cars, or both, I think you will enjoy watching this video.
