This Week’s Video Round-Up

With a new week of Speedhunting ready to kick off, it’s time to take a quick look at some of our favorite videos from the past week.

Let’s kick things off with a new clip from Petrolicious, featuring a French rally icon…

Generating 285hp from its mid-mounted turbo 1.4L pushrod engine and weighing just 900kg, the rear-wheel drive Renault 5 Turbo 2 was a formidable little rally performer in the early-to-mid ’80s. With a limited number of homologation road cars produced at the time – many of which were subsequently turned into gravel bashers themselves – pristine examples are few and far between more than 30 years after the fact. But ‘pristine’ is exactly what Christophe Guerin’s 1984 example is.

Next up, it’s a new clip showcasing the 2016 ‘Bandit Edition’ Trans Am being built by Trans Am Depot. Of course, the Bandit name is being borrowed from the iconic Trans Am film Smokey and the Bandit, and with that comes Burt Reynolds. Just 77 black and gold cars will be built, each packing an LSx 454 engine good for 840hp, t-tops and retro-style ‘snowflake’ wheels.

How does Nismo piece together a GT3-spec GT-R? This time-lapse video, which takes a bare chassis to race-ready completion in less than three minutes will give you a pretty good idea.

Finally this week we have Formula D pro driver Chris Forsberg in an April Fools Day stunt involving a Nissan NV Cargo van that’s been set up to slide. And when you’re finished watching that, you can check the Donut Media ‘making of’ video here.

As always, if you’ve caught a cool video in the last week, go ahead and share it in the comments section below!

The Bandit is missing a turbocharger and a light setup on the hood that illuminates TURBOCHARGE so you know when to yell "TURBOCHAARRRGE!" when the turbo is working.


Its not turbocharged


BigTmoneyD No shit, the original was.


When will we see burt reynolds sell that car to dominic turreto in a fast and furious movie. That would be sweet


The original was not. The car in number 2 was but they were different cars


Here's the trailer for All-New, All-Different (partly) Top Gear, and it doesn't even look half-bad.

I'm not even mad. It's amazing! Haters gonna hate, I'm watching both shows. Though I'm with Sabine here.
