Sunday Videos

Earlier this week I wrote about the Audi RS4 Avant. A few readers and a friend (who I guess also counts as a reader) said that I should have mentioned the RS2. Yeah, I should have. The RS2 was an insane station wagon (Avant) developed by Audi and Porsche and manufactured from 1994 to 1996. It could hit 60 MPH in 4.8 seconds and had a top speed of over 160 MPH. Sadly, Audi never sent it to the US. I couldn't find a good video of an RS2, so instead I'm posting this 25 Years of Quattro video, a great tribute to Audi's Quattro cars. (Just a note: This is not a Top Gear video. The person who uploaded it, probably thinking it would help it get more hits, labeled it as one)

Yes! It's Lime Rock Park season!
Lime Rock Park Memorial Day 2009 - "Historic F1 race cars take to LRP for the first time in history. Historic race cars shot with effect to look like vintage film."

David Gilmour and Nick Mason, of Pink Floyd fame, are racing fanatics and took part in La Carrera Panamericana in 1992. This is a video of some race footage (presumably from 1992, but since La Carrera Panamericana is for classic cars, it's tough to tell) put to Pink Floyd's "One Slip".

Enjoy!
