LAAutoShow2014_LexusRCFCoupe_small

MotorworldHype.com was launched back in 2008 and to help us get the word out we partnered up with Lexus to style an IS-F sedan for SEMA that year.  My concept for the car was to go subtle but still remain performance minded and my ultimate goal/dream for the concept was for Lexus to take a look at it and want to actually produce it as a special edition.  That didn’t happen obviously but when I visited the LA Auto Show to check out the new RC-F coupe, lets just say I had a smile on my face.  If you want to know what I mean check out the video below and stay tuned for more from the LA Auto Show!

2014 LA Auto Show: New Cadillac ATS-V GT3 Is A Muscular Evil Looking Race Car With Lots Of Letters In Its Name

Posted on 11.20.14 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Cadillac ATS-V Coupe Racecar

The new Cadillac ATS-V coupe made its debut at the LA Auto Show.  Its wider, lighter, evil twin, the ATS-V GT3 also made its debut at the LA Auto Show.  It has 600 horsepower, wide arches made from carbon fiber, massive brakes, and I am afraid of it.  Let’s take a closer look and hope that it doesn’t try to kill us.

Video: Ken Block Hoons Los Angeles In Every Imaginable Way in GymkhanaSEVEN

Posted on 11.17.14 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

KenBlock_GymkhanaSEVEN

I will let you guys in on a little secret.  I actually got to watch Gymkhana SEVEN early at an event over the weekend.  Then again, I posted about it on instagram and twitter so I guess its not so secret.  If you follow us (follow us! @motorworldhype on twitter and instagram!) then  you already know how I feel about the latest Gymkhana flick.  If you don’t then I will give you a quick summary so you can go ahead and start watching below.  This video is easily the best Gymkhana video yet!  The production value is through the roof!  They filmed at places in LA that most would have thought to be impossible!

One of my favorite things about Gymkhana SEVEN besides the production value is the nods and in-jokes about Los Angeles.  Ken visits famous locations, recreates moments in recent LA pop culture, and has some fun with another Los Angeles staple: Lowriders.  Its all really funny and entertaining to watch.  I think many people forget that Ken Block actually “writes” these videos himself.  That might sound weird that he “writes” for videos that have no dialogue but all the nods and jokes I mentioned were straight from his head!  Personally I don’t think the guy gets enough credit for his creative side (speaking of, keep an eye out for a few easter eggs!).  Anyhow, in summary Gymkhana SEVEN is a marvelous, obnoxious, maniacal, beautiful, love letter to Los Angeles.  You owe yourself to watch it below!

The second to last race of the 2014 Formula One season is in the books!  Please tell me you didn’t…seriously?! Missed it?  OK, I will help you out yet again!  It was quite a race in Brazil and tensions were definitely high.  You sure you want to know the results?  Alright, scroll down for spoilers and a quick race recap from NBC Sports.

WARNING SPOILERS BELOW!!!

 

1st: Nico Rosberg
2nd: Lewis Hamilton
3rd: Felipe Massa

It was definitely a crazy race and the phrase of the day was tire degradation as the Pirelli tires took a beating on the Integlagos asphalt and that provided hardship for just about every team on the grid.  Tire wear definitely played a part in everyone’s strategy today.  For a recap check out the video below from NBC Sports.

Hype Video: Furious7 Trailer Drops And Is AmazTasticDopeFresh

Posted on 11.03.14 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Furious7_Trailer1

Its pretty safe to say that the seventh movie in the “Fast And Furious” franchise has had a lot of eyes on it.  The series has only gotten better since the fourth movie so its natural to think its going to keep getting better.  Also, and more unfortunately due to the untimely passing of the franchise’s star Paul Walker, many fans have been waiting to see the actor’s final performance.  Pretty much no matter how you slice it, this movie is a big deal.  Its still a ways off from its theatrical release but this weekend the first official trailer dropped and it dropped hard!  This trailer features one of the craziest car sequences I have ever seen on film!  I could sit here and gush all about it but you really just need to watch for yourself below.  Trust me, you really want to see this…

SEMA 2014: Super Street Is First To Instal Individual Throttle Bodies On A Scion FR-S In USA (Video)

Posted on 10.31.14 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

TunerChallenge_SuperStreet_Thumbnail

SEMA is just around the corner and all the builds that we have been looking for are starting to make their debut.  Among the first to start showing off is Scion as they always have a preview event for their SEMA line up.  This year, we actually got invited!  As promised, most of the cars that Scion will bring to SEMA this year were at the event, including the three “Tuner Challenge” cars.  All three looked pretty fresh but Super Street Magazine’s entry really stood out thanks to its bright “Release Series” yellow paint and its shaved engine bay in which sat an engine that had the first individual throttle body (ITB) set up done in America.  ITBs have been done before on a FR-S but as far as we know the only people to pull it off is Weld in Japan.  Super Street took the task on with the help of Borla and Gearheinz.  Together the developed a drive by wire system that should have pretty awesome response and a even better sound.  That modification alone is bound to get them a lot of points!  For a quick look at Super Street’s Tuner Challenge FR-S check out the video below.
