MMM: Audi Quattro Concept

Gorgeous. Audi has been a bit blah of late, and the neverending quest to out-over-overmodel the other germans is getting a bit tiresome, but by gum they got this one right. It’s like they took the perfect original and just brought it up to date.

MMM: Hennessey Venom in Leno’s Garage

This thing has twin turbo 6.2l LS9 V8 shoehorned into a stretched Lotus Exige body, it runs 1000hp at the wheels on pump petrol, and it sounds terrifying. It sounds like it’d wait outside the track for one of those evil-sounding McLaren Mercs, and beat the snot out of it. I’d like to put one in my (imaginary) garage alongside a similarly Lotus-bodied Tesla Roadster, and watch the Tesla soil itself.
