A Car That Can Hop?!

China’s BYD: An Electric car that can actually hop!

  • Introducing the BYD YangWang U9, an electric car that squats, leaps, and lands like a true Street Drift champ! All four tires go airborne, making potholes tremble in fear. 🚘
  • Priced around $145,000, this hop-a-licious ride has Warren Buffett’s seal of approval. 🤑
  • Sorry, US friends, no export plans yet. But hey, maybe Elon Musk’s Roadster will deliver those hops he promised, right? 🚀

Around The Car

FIA: Under Pressure to Award Hamilton Championship

Hold on to your helmets, folks! Lewis Hamilton fans are still relentlessly petitioning the FIA to overturn the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix result, as if a fresh set of tires and a comeback win by Max Verstappen were just too hard to swallow. With over 80,000 signatures on their petition, they’re not giving up, but the FIA isn’t budging either. It’s like trying to un-eat that last slice of pizza – it simply can’t be done.

As time marches on, and rule changes have already been implemented, the FIA seems to have moved past the issue. But fan loyalty? That’s forever, my friends. While these dedicated fans keep fighting the good fight, Verstappen isn’t wasting any time looking back. He’s soaring with Red Bull, having scored two wins in the first three races of the 2023 season. Who needs a flux capacitor when you’ve got wings?
